Older and uh... Just Older I Guess!

Work has been coming thick and fast for me in term #1, and I hope it holds up all year. The only set back of nice steady employment is of course not as much spare time. Meaning things like blogging are pushed to the back burner.

Over the weekend another birthday came and went. As I wasn't hitting a remarkable or "milestone" age it wasn't anything to fuss over. Though I am now in scary close range of the big three o!

Even though I wasn't set on fussing (a habit from my uni days when my b-day was smack dab in the middle of midterms) fortunately I have a fantastic partner who was! Lady R not only baked me this ubber cute cake, but also made a gourmet dinner for two. So we enjoyed all that over candles in our new house's "sky loft". To end this romantic evening on a counter conformity note we ended it all off by teaching her how to play Lord of the Rings RISK. You heard right Andy, now she knows how to play!

So I did realize how lucky I am these days.

It was as though Dunedin knew it was my b-day and had a squadron of stunt planes flying cool formations over the harbour to celebrate. I didn't let the reality of them being here for a motor event the whole week, deter my basking in imagined glory. Though they've flown over head the last 3 days, only the first round counted as it was on my B-Day :P

It is also yet another example of "sky loft" paying for itself! As we could see 60% of the squadron's flying space from the roof. Very cool. I'm vastingly enjoying my new house over the hall!

Of course with another b-day ticked off the list, has me thinking about getting older. Watching my x-mas present from the parents (which JUST showed up last week... go postal system!) of Corner Gas season 5, I now jokingly wish to grow up to be Oscar when I'm his age. He grouchy, crazy, and thinks everything should be how he wants it too be, sounds like me already! All I need is his eccentric paranoia and I'm set! Jackass!!!
