etoile_violette: (Grinning from ear to ear...)
Thanks to everybody who came bowling yesterday for my birthday - it was great fun, even though we had to wait 90 minutes for a lane after the whole world descended on the place while we were upstairs playing pool (I couldn't pre-book a lane as everyone was coming at different times, and hardly anyone could give an exact time anyway). But we managed, and although I'm as crap as ever at it, I had a laugh and I hope everyone else did too.

I've had some lovely presents too: Mark bought me my very own DS (so I can give [livejournal.com profile] dave_ho_tep his back now); he also got me a cute cat pen and matching stickers, which I meant to stick on everyone's heads last night but forgot about. Oh well, next time...

A quick list of some of my presents:

A gorgeous necklace
The official Scrabble dictionary, with every allowed word between 2 and 9 letters in there, with definitions! No more "well apparently we can accept 'Aa'* even though we have no idea what it means".
My own Clanger-noise-maker
A toy trumpet
Some cool CDs.
A book of some of the best Darwin awards
A modern retelling of The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse, which is hilarious :-D.
A recycled circuit board fridge magnet in the shape of a butterfly
A lotus retreat bag

From my parents I got a big Welsh grammar book, among other things. And yes, I did ask for it, because I am that sad, lol. Oh, and the birthday cake mum got for me was a fabulous Dr Who one, with thick turns-your-tongue-blue icing and everything. Typically, I forgot to take a photo of it with my phone, but mum did with her film-camera, and [livejournal.com profile] x_equals_speed cleverly suggested taking a photo of that photo when it's developed, as I don't have a scanner, so I'll be trying that. Hopefully you can all wait without too much anguish for that...

Tired now. Need more rest.

Have a fab weekend, whoever reads this. And also those who don't; I'm feeling benevolent :-).
