New characters, Zach Galifianakis
For those of you scratching your heads, whispering frantically to your colleagues to explain who Frances McDormand might be, allow us to drive a beam of light through the mist – she was in Fargo, she’s married to Joel Coen of Coen Brothers fame, and she’s turning a very sensual 52 today. We decided to get her a gift, so we all sat on a rooftop playing saxophones, occasionally pausing to discuss prezzies, and it boiled down to a toss up between a basket of almond croissants, or a funny clip featuring the beardy guy from The Hangover. In the end we got her both. Happy Birthday Frances!
