Growing up is optional

So yesterday I turned the grand old age of 23. Turning 23 is just not a number significance so I didn't even book the day off work. Was a good day though and thank you to everyone who left me birthday messages, it made the day that much more festive.

The evening was a highlight though, with a visit from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad and [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat who brought not only presents (The Fisher King and Baron M√ľnchhausen DVD's and a new game, Blockus) but their set of Dominion which meant [livejournal.com profile] miss_amaranth could finally learn the game! Blockus is an interesting game and really plays to my enjoyment of strategy. The solitaire mode is also very... interesting.

There was also a very brief Skype from the ever wonderful DD to wish me a happy birthday which meant [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad and [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat at least got to hear her and interact, however briefly.

Also, good news in that [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad said he'd be willing to give 40k a go so I finally have a reason to finish painting my 5 termagants and spend the vouchers I got for Christmas!

All in all, a good evening *smiles*

... realising the rest of the world is just full of kids who are older than you.
... finding that everyone else is winging it too
... when you start having to buy the presents
... an excuse for a party
... not needing an excuse for a party
... working out the answer to problems you had when you were younger
... realising that you can't do anything about it now
... promising yourself you'll pass your knowledge on to your kids
... having kids appear in your thoughts
... living your life around 12 key days
... when the money you made in the last 10 years wouldn't last 10 weeks now
... starting to look forward to looking back
... looking back and realising you have a lot to look back on
... forgetting more than you know
... when you've lost enough people to really treasure the ones you have
... what I'm doing today.

Hey everyone,

This is to let you know that my birthday party is going to be on the 3rd of April in the evening. I'm planning to keep it pretty quiet (after BiFest I'm just not going to have the brains to do anything fancy) with a nice meal at the lovely Indian restaurant in Eynsham called the Spiceorama.

If you're planning to come, please let me know in the comments *smiles*
