Benson Yeung has just turned one and 100 at the same time

Benson Yeung’s First Birthday and 100th Hub Party

Hi guys. You’re cordially invited to my first birthday party as a writer. I didn’t know it and hardly remembered, but writing.com sent me a birthday message and said that my account was turning one year old. Apparently I was trying to get back into writing on 23 Feb 2008 and signed up with them on that day. A year has just passed, and I suppose now I’m a one year old writer. This very hub I’m writing also happens to be my 100th on hubpages.com. If hubpages hasn’t overlooked it, you should see a medal next to this particular hubtivity of mine. Let’s throw a party and celebrate my first birthday and 100th hub. There will be no alcohol, no smoke, no grass and no food. So, don’t bring a present. Nonetheless, there should be plenty people writing, and plenty to write about. (I will be approving your comments as soon as I can to allow greater spontaneity). Some of my die-hard fans will turn up and have fun for a good week’s celebration (I expect over a hundred people turning up, of course, but will settle for ten, provided the ten will write ten times as hard and long). I’d appreciate if each of my visitors will share a few words, any thoughts, or a link to his / her favorite hub (authored by himself or herself) for the rest of us to feast on. If you don’t turn up without filing a legitimate excuse (of course, there are no such thing as a legitimate excuse), you’ll make me so very mad, or revenging madly, by forgetting your first birthday, or your 100th hub, or even both of these. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.


Now, let’s party.

Hey Benson

Gee you're a year older! Congratulations! And I was invited that's why I'm here. And I RSVPed too: http://hubpages.com/hub/hot-grande-five-pumps-iris...

Woohoo! I'm here with bells on my toes, a lampshade on my head (why wait till after the drinking? I might forget!) and a bottle of cheap champagne in my hand! Actually it might only be sparkling cider, but what the heck!

Happy 1st year of writing birthday and congrats on your hundredth hub!

I think I'm the only one who complied with the link requirement. Can you just delete that comment Benson as I'm starting to feel overly promotional :C

What can I say? You have made me the writer I am today. I stand before the Academy, my proudest moment, and the one real "thank you" I have to say is to Benson, who taught me how to read, and write, and speak Portuguese. Happy Birthday!

Good to see you tonight.

To strip, or not to strip. We (I, at least) still love you.

Hey... wait for me GT lol. I´m sorry Benson but don´t worry because me and GT will come back in no time, right GT? Well... in fact it can take a while since the nearest alcohol shop stays a few block away...

Now seriously, congratulations on your first anniversary and for your achievement here at Hubpages. I hope you don´t kick us out before morning... :D

I decided to leave you with my first ever hub: http://hubpages.com/sports/Get-to-know-some-of-the...

Looking forward for your next party already. Lets have fun.

Proud Mom profile image

Proud Mom 7 years ago from USA

Pam and Christoph, you're having my kind of party fun!  Well, that's assuming Christoph isn't doing anything nasty in the kitchen. C.A. Hubberpants seems to be absent. She'd add some spark to this party!

Happy birthday, and congrats, Benson.  I wanted to attend anyway, but when I read the threat of retaliation and remembered that you promote the fact that you remove hemorrhoids as a profession, I figured my presence was required.  I must bring a gift, though.  I can't come emptyhanded.  I'll be back later for the presentation.

Christoph! Just what kind of girl do think I am! When I said I wanted a French Kiss, I meant the cocktail! Thank God I didn't ask for a sex on the beach or a screaming... well you get my point. Now do behave.

Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 7 years ago from Virginia

Hey! Where's my lampshade? And what are those smooching noises coming from the kitchen? And why is Patricia trying to look so innocent? And where are goldentoad and funride going? Did somebody put something in my drink? Why am I asking all these questions?

*Pam peeks in the kitchen and sees Christoph dancing on the table*

Wow Benson, you throw one heck of a party! I need to run out and get some ones in case strippers arrive. :D


Patricia Costanzo profile image

Patricia Costanzo 7 years ago from Behind the Redwood Curtain

Oh Pam, am I being a tease again? Damn I hate it when I do that.


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 7 years ago from Virginia

Lol Patricia! A tease? Nooooooo, never...*cough* :D

I see those smoochy smooch stars in your eyes. ;) I just wish I could have gotten back here sooner. :) Now I'm too tired to party. Maybe it'll still be going on in the morning. :D

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 7 years ago from California

Grats on both milestones (?) and um, yeah, a party with no booze ain't gonna happen, so in keeping with my affection for the undesirable element that has found its way to your party, I brought two cases of beer and I'm going into the kitchen to start drinking with Christoph. I have to tell you, I feel compelled on this occasion of your success to drink to such excess that I throw up in the fishtank or at the very least, make importune use of a large potted plant. It really wouldn't be a party without that, and, as your hub friend and respectful admirer I am willing to make this kind of sacrifice for you (and to induce as many others as I possibly can to doing so as well).

I guess that leaves me no option but to drink the tequila straight from the bottle and go dance on the table with pest.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada

Thanks, Proud Mom! Don't tell Benson, but I'm having a beer in our honour. He's operating or writing or both at the same time, so he won't notice. Besides, Gwendymom and Christoph and Pest are in the kitchen table dancing so he'll be distracted by them. Or by Shades puking in his fishtank and peeing in the potted plants.

Great party, Benson!!

Dear Benson

I am so sad I missed the party, but I promise to attend your next one.

Anyway, well done Benson Yeung.


Benson Yeung profile image

Benson Yeung 7 years ago from Hong Kong Author

Hi Christoph,

Everybody is everywhere. Only you are in the kitchen. Of course, nothing really happened, we only wished it (or parts of it) had happened. But the fun was much better than if it did happen. At least your hang-over is much easier to cope with this way. This is 26 Feb 09, just another day on hubpages. Thanks for being the last guess leaving.

Happy Birthday you are looking good for your age.What would you like for your present? Can I use this great celebration as an excuse to have a Bourbon or a Midori.Where is everyone? Come on I am in the mood for a party here.I would like to see you Benson pop out of a cake,yahoooooooo.

blondepoet 7 years ago from australia

Oh by the way I had a 'Hard On' the other night at a party ooooooo.It was sooo good.One part Baileys Irish Cream one part some bananna stuff. I got in trouble going around asking who wants a hard on haha.I make all my own grog at home.Bourbon,rum,Malibu,anything one desires,so I get to taste test,that is the only reason I try.


Benson Yeung profile image

Benson Yeung 7 years ago from Hong Kong Author

Hi blondepoet,

thanks for coming to help clean up. The party was of course over. We can wait a while before we throw the next one, probably at your place, so we won't have a shortage of grog.


Rochelle Frank profile image

Rochelle Frank 7 years ago from California Gold Country

Sorry I left the party so early-- well maybe not, I might not have fit in with the rowdy crowd, and obviously there would have been no one to drive me home.

Driving from Hong Kong to California is dangerous enough when you are sober.


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 7 years ago from australia

Yes you are all welcome to come to my place for a party,the grog is on the house.I also have a big kitchen I missed out on the last romp in there,I WANT IN.Plus Funride has volunteered to be the floor show.

Benson Yeung 7 years ago from Hong Kong Author

Hi Rochelle,

You're exactly right. We descent people (implying there are also indescent people) know how to stay out of trouble.
