For those of you who didn't know, it was my birthday on Friday
Hardly seems like a whole year since the last one, but it was...well, I'm pretty sure it was. If it wasn't then there's something wrong going on around here. Anyway, it doesn't really matter. The important thing is that I got presents!
Among which were:
A new watch (Hurray, I can be unreasonably obsessive about looking at the time again!)
The first three Scary Go Round collections
A rubber dinosaur that looks kind of like an ecstatic T-Rex
American Tabloid by James Ellroy
A Scott Pilgrim book (which looks like rad + awesome x (number of pages/amounts of reading) but I have yet to properly read)
Some chocolate dinosaurs
A Badtz Maru toy
Other stuff which I've currently forgotten.
It was a pretty good day considering the house was basically a stack of boxes at the time.
We went out for pizza with Ben, Maki, Helena...and Chris and ate caterpillar cake before moving on to a pub with just Ben and Maki and drinking ale and listening to 90s indie. So all in all it was a pretty ace time.
We're now in York and just about settled in. The room is really fantastich and in fact the whole house seems really nice. Friendliness and such. I'll probably stick some pictures of the place up on FaceFace if you're interested.
There's been a large amount of pub visiting and making friends with people you're never going to see again - all the joy of being a fresher...well, a hanger on to a fresher.Matt in the Hatt
came up yesterday too and there was excellent eating of sunday roast and looking at comics. Wickedy.
Hope all you guys are happy and well.
Oh P.S. I didn't get that job in the library...again.
I AM SO HAPPY!
