Well happy birthday to her, but I’m still ticked off that pretty much everyone besides Nat Tena was given a birthday post.

Happy Birthday, Imelda! Fortunately, you were able to regain our hearts by your performance in”Cranford”, a delightful six-part series based on the works of Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell. Anyone who enjoys the works of Jane Austen will also take pleasure in this new production which concentrates on people a little lower down the social scale, living in a country village near Manchester. It is a fine ensemble piece by well-established actresses of stage and screen, and a chance to see Michael Gambon in something other than Harry Potter.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU MA’AM AS Imelda of course. Yes you played a brilliant “Umbridge”. Shame on you (as Deloris Umbdridge) for not returning for the Battle at Hogwarts !(if it hadn’t been for your Teaching Methods Harry wouldnt have had to form the DA,therefore there would have been less “well equiped” students to fight).Fortunately for Umbridge, students were able to deal with the “Dark Arts”. I am sure you will not waste your time in Azkaban (perhaps teaching all the in’mates how “lovely,cuddley and wonderful Dementors are!). Seriously have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and many more to come :-).

The first thing I saw and “recognized” Ms. Staunton by name in was Vera Drake. I had see her other movies, and she stand out, but like many fine character actors you really have to look to catch the name. I’m very happy to have a name to put to the face so I’ll know who to look for. The most wonderful thing about Mrs. Staunton is she can becomethe sensible but compassionate Vera then do someone like Umbridge, whom I personally think could put a scare in Voldemort. Happy Birthday Ms. Staunton and I’m looking forward to seeing you on the big and small screen.

Happy Birthday Imelda, (this is going to sound rotten but I mean it in a great way!) You do a great job portraying a woman that we hate!

Where’s the birthday post for Severus? I suppose his birthday wishes were posted on JKR’s site because it’s no longer being updated and is just repeating last year’s material (minus the Christmas decorations in December), but I was still happy to see his birthday recognized. As for Imelda Staunton, she’s excellent as Umbridge, and it would be ungracious not to wish her a happy birthday, but Severus Snape is an important character whose birthday should not be overlooked at Leaky just because he’s wandering around with Dumbledore in the afterlife. (I picture him wearing Slytherin green rather than black.) Happy birthday, Severus and Imelda!

Oops. The birthday post for Severus was published a day early, on the 8th (because of the time difference between the U.S. and Britain?). My apologies for not checking more closely.

52? Oh, she’s younger than I thought. Happy Birthday!

Happy B-day, Imelda. I loved hating you as Delores. But for me you will always be the empty-headed Mrs. Palmer in Sense and Sensibility and Mrs. Micawber from David Copperfield. Have a happy one and come back for DH so we can hate you some more.
