He swam with sharks and has been to the moon (nearly). Talked to robots, worn a rocket pack, flown a caravan airship, built giant lego houses and made entire gardens made of plasticine.
He likes pies, ladies, planes, beer and model train sets.
Ladies and Gentleman...if there's anything James May cannot do, it's only because he's not interested!
(Except going back in time, but we're working on that *builds Tardis* and anyway James knows that it was actually quite rubbish back then so you might as well stay home and just pretend it's 1943. At least then you can go watch the telly when you're done.)
(Rather than having a spam fest I just posted pics of the way I love my James- scruffy and dorky and grinning like a pillock. All these pictures make me go thumpy thump in my heart. Show me your James!)
What I'd like to see in the comments are things you'd say if you were slightly drunk and it was your turn to toast. We're all sitting in James' local and he's hammered as a monkey in the corner, red-cheeked and giggling while we take turns telling him how much we love him- and WHY. And post your favourite pics, and just generally rant on his loveliness.
Here's what I say:
James- in the very short time that I have known you, you have turned my life around. I know that sounds all very dramatic and what-have-you but it' ture, I was a depressed woman before you came along, then you reminded me what amazing things there are in the world, and how people are out there doing them. You reminded me of things I love like sheds and pies and old Rolls Royces. You've given me spirit to get up off my arse and go outside and see what's going on.
Also you are mind-numbingly handsome. Even when you're tired, sweaty, cranky...you're still gorgeous. I don't think it's presumptuous of me to declare you the most attractive man in the universe. The truth is never presumptuous.
Anyway- happy birthday to you. I can't think of anything worth celebrating more than the fact that you're in our lives.
We love you James, and if we were all in a room we'd be climbing all over each other trying to prove who loves you more. I bet you'd like that. &hearts
Lastly, I don't think I can launch this post without embedding what is probably THE definitive James May 'I love you.'
