For the record, this year’s birthday haul included:
A small digital video camera, which is vastly superior to my digital camera when it comes to “vlogs”
DVDs of Aladdin, American Psycho and What Dreams May Come
DVD boxset of Lost Season 2 (we have S1 already)
Chilli-infused olive oil
Freeze dried astronaut ice cream
Plenty of chocolate
Spicy food cookbook
Plus a total of Â£240, which will hopefully go towards:
A couple of tripod type attachments for the digital camera (already ordered one from Amazon)
A winter coat, ideally to be bought in the January sales for maximum cost efficiency
Plus I want to get something musical. Don’t know what. I have an electric guitar, a mandolin, and a keyboard, and I barely ever play any of them.. I’m tempted by a twelve string acoustic like the one Edward has, but I just know it’d be a devil to keep in tune..
Birthday activities involved sitting on trains for a bit, sleeping, but more importantly, dinner with Naomi last night, and getting to sleep in the same bed, which is something of a special treat these days..
All in all, it was actually quite good. And for the first time in nineteen years, my age is a cube number – surely something to be happy about, right..? :o)
