Thank you for the birthday wishes, guys, that was very thoughtful. Especially as I have decided that this is going to be my last birthday, twenty nine feels like a pretty good age, and I think I'm just going to stick with it from here on out.

Actually one of the upshots of being old and decrepit now is that after the pub closes when people ask if you want to go clubbing you can say, actually I can't think of anything I want less, instead I want to go home, have a cup of tea and watch West Wing DVDs under an enormous duvet. And the good thing about having your birthday on a Friday is that you get to claim the weekend, this is my birthday weekend, and because it's the May Day holiday on Monday I plan to be celebrating until Tuesday.

I got taken to see the Avengers movie yesterday. It wasn't a movie I'd been planning to see because I haven't seen any of the other movies in the, um, franchise? and I wasn't that interested. But I thought it was a nice moment of geek outreach that my friends were doing so along we went, and, dude, that was an awesome movie.

I had birthday cake with my gran, birthday beers with my dad, an evening in the pub and an excellent movie with my dearest friends. I have a good feeling about twenty nine, really I do.

Also, as a present to myself and in celebration to my newfound elderly status I bought myself a pair of converse with a picture of Wonder Woman on them. I rock at adulthood.

That sounds like a most excellent plan; wishing a very excellent birthday to you also.

(Though I should point out that my dad got to 39, started working backwards until he got to 27 and stuck there...this has proved a little awkward now that I'm about to overtake him...)

Happy Birthday! :D

It sounds like you had a really nice day, so that is awesome. And yes -- 29 is a good age to be. I totally should've stopped counting then...

♥ I hope you have a lovely year, bb!

I am now failing not to quote my favorite line from "Smallville". It's said by Lois Lane, in a very perky tone: "Happy birthday! Another year closer to the sweet release of death!"
