Birthday Party

Friday 17th September.

It started out as the intended convivial quiet gathering.

Convivial quiet gathering

Toots (and Gem) made me cupcakes

Suffering some uncertainty as to whether I was being terribly rude – but hey, it was my birthday, and moreover Luke forced my hand. As in literally picked me up and carried me out the door – I abandoned said gathering temporarily to go see these people play a venue down the road with a roomful of balloons at around 11pm.

(Due to a combination of behind-scheduleness and licensing restrictions, they very nearly didn’t. But in the end they beat the odds – and the law – and totally did.)

Keith! Party

Then, with a few new guests in tow, we returned to CH an hour and a bit later to find the former quiet gathering had unexpectedly hit critical mass in our absence and was comprehensively going OFF. Omg!

This pic represents the otherwise undocumented period after K!P when everything unanticipatedly went crazy awesome

The universe, in effect, threw me a bitchin surprise party.

Mr Daniel totally made me a cake also

Big thanks to everybody who conspired with the universe to make it such a happy one.

Spring = Sprung

Official fact. Doesn’t quite feel like it yet, but it’s unquestionably getting there.

So, Em came to visit from Sydney a few weeks ago. Hadn’t seen her in almost exactly a year. It was excellent. Here’s a picture of us her, and me in half-eaten pizza form at Bimbo:

We shared three pizzas. She was hungry.

Amongst other things, we talked blogs. She pointed out that my F$%book accounts have pretty much completely supplanted the more here-is-the-newsy kind of role my blog used to play back in the day, and told me she’d blog more if I did. Which seemed like a good deal, especially since I’m finally starting to feel kind of over F&#b!@k.

She also opined that TF should go back to being more writerly and less overwhelmingly audiocentric. Quoth TAFKALJ, concordantly: “TOO MUCH AUDIO”.

I dunno. The blog has to do what it wants!!! *stamps foot petulantly on behalf of blog* It can’t be forced, let alone by the audioantipathetic whims of sundry ex-girlfriends. Well, it probably can up to a point. But it shouldn’t be. That said, I think Em made a strong case.

Blog bloggety blog.

We’ll see what happens.


How was your winter? Mine was harsh. Although I’ve certainly had worse. And yeah – it’s over now.

Which is good.
