Birthday Post!

Today I have managed the great achievement of surviving for 27 years. Yay me!

I received lots of lovely presents, including a giant Marmite money jar. It says it holds £200 in 5p pieces so I have decided to try and test this claim. I fear it may take me quite a long time though. I also got a Knit Your Own Ninja kit and have discovered that I am very bad at knitting. But I do dispute their claim that this is a beginners level kit; it clearly requires some actual knowledge of knitting before you start, and I am woefully lacking in that.

Finally, as long time readers of my journal will know, my birthday is the time for me to regale you with a poem of such epic brilliance it will make you weep tears of joy and cause all other poetry to be ruined for you for ever more.

Brace yourselves, here it comes...

To twenty six I bid farewell,
But I have no time to dwell.
Twenty seven's here instead,
And now I think I'm off to bed.

See, this is what happens when you get to be as old as I am. You spend your day knitting then go to bed at ten o'clock. All I need now is a cup of warm cocoa and a pair of fluffy socks and I'm set.

Happy birthday! The Blue One and I have a book for you, a book of such mighty majestic awesomeness, you may weep ... you may wish to kill us... It shall cause you considerable glee.

I'm not sure whether to be excited or afraid...

Aw happy birthday and for the record I love fluffy socks and I'm only a wee 26 and a half.

Remember how old we thought we were like, five years ago? We're probably ghosts now and we don't realize it.

Totes jealous of the Marmite jar and ninja kit (I don't knit, either. I do attend a "stitch and bitch" with some friends, but I'm just there to bitch :D)

Lovely poem, as always. You ought to publish someday.

Thank you!

And yes, it's become something of a tradition for me that every birthday I go back and read my entry from when I turned 21 and you replied that you were 23 and we both declared how very old we were. Ghosts is probably about right!

There were some stitch and bitch sessions at BiCon but I didn't go to any of them. Sounds like fun though!

And yes, I think I should. When I'm an old lady I can compile my decades of birthday poems into one volume of epic awesomeness. The world will be a better place for it.
