A very happy birthday to my bday twins, how_i_lie
! Also, a slightly belated bday to filo77
who celebrated (with lots of cake, I'm sure) yesterday!
Unfortunately I'm at work. And I have only half of my delicious cupcakes (as in, the cake but not the frosting) because last night I somehow neglected to realise that we didn't have any icing sugar (powdered sugar) so thus no buttercream. Sucks. But oh well, I will make it tonight. And my boss doesn't actually realise it's my birthday, so am pondering how to bring that up. I miss the Embassy, where every bday was a big celebration.
Last night Kaite (ladyvivien
) and Claire (lazyclaire
) came over for various reasons, and much talking was had. We recorded ourselves for a project of Claire's, and then I talked about very important things
(tm) so that was productive. I ended the day (and began my bday) with lots of warm fuzzies about having fabulous supportive friends, so that's awesome.
Actually I feel kind of like Lorelai with her birthday week, because although not all of it is in celebration of me (ha!) there is a lot going on. Tonight Claire and Edd are coming for dinner and we're going to the pub quiz at the White Lion (our local) which is something we've been discussing doing for ages. I'm pretty excited actually - I love pub quizzes! Also, we have a good mix of nationalities/cultures, genders, and interests, so I feel like we have a good team.
Wed we're going to this Sandpit
thing, which is some kind of outdoor games event. I'm not totally sure, but it sounds cool and a whole gang of us are going along, so it should be good. Thurs I'm having dinner with my old flatmate who I haven't seen in an age, and then Fri is mizzykitty
's bday pub thing.
And Sat is my birthday celebration! We're going ice skating! I am 12! The actitivy (I have to have an "activity") was picked by me, but it does make me think back to my middle school years, when (roller) skating birthday parties were all the rage. Of course, the heavy drinking sure to occur afterwards will somewhat temper that, but still.
Gosh, I hope you wanted to know my entire schedule for the week, seeing as that was the only point to this post. Who cares! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
I love birthdays. Can you tell?
