Blimey, it is the end

It felt as if Harry Potter had become a good friend. I mean even though he had to battle absolute evil, there were so many people that identified with him on different levels. And even if it is not the greatest literature ever written, it certainly was the best selling.

Last night my eyes glazed over the last sentence of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Finished. Gone. Kaput! Now Harry Potter, the friend, will never be read. It is bittersweet.

"Au re-voir 'Arry," as Fleur might say.

Recent acquisitions

Secretly gleeful, I opened up birthday present after birthday present. Let me be the first to admit, I love much so that I will not elope so I can get wedding gifts!

So, after the big 2 and 5 here is the mandatory list of what material gains I have made:

  • A chocolate fondue set
  • A Cross pen - it looks like a bullet and it is made from chrome.
  • Lots of jewellery: beaded necklaces, a bracelet, red ear rings and even sterling silver ones !
  • Clothes (but of course...)
  • A wee cute organiser for next year (talk about planning ahead!)
  • A Fone Sox (FYI: it's pink and its got hearts on it to match my pink phone. It looks like a baby's sock)
  • Chocolates (naturally)
  • A CD - Michael Buble: Call me irresponsible
  • A perfume set with a matching hand bag
  • More pens and key rings.
  • An old fashioned case with angels on it.
  • A decadent late night snack of strawberries, ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate!

So a BEEEG THANK YOU to all of you, for the wishes, the time, coping with my brooding and for being you.

Now we can all look forward to next year. Evil laugh

1982 was a year that...

...the first CD made its public appearance in Hannover, Germany.
...the Golden City Press (now just City Press) hit South African news stands.
... a computer scientist, Scott Fahlman, from Carnegie Mellon University suggested the use of smileys (or emoticons) to express emotions in emails. :-) Good on you Scott!
...Micheal Jackson released his second solo album, Thriller.
...the first issue of USA Today was published.
...where movies such as ET; Annie, Poltergeist and Gandhi graced movie screens.
...popular shows like Magnum PI, Dynasty and Knight Rider changed fashion trends .
...and well, after some hours of labour, me mum gave birth to yours truly...two months and some days premature.
It's my party and I can cry if I want to.
A not so happy birthday to me...don't argue, aging is always quite depressive.
Let me rather have some dark, depressing chocolate.

Just a quickie

I have been marinating in misery. Well, part of me anyway. You see, it is a mere 8 days away. Just 8 days before I become a quarter century...and that sounds old. And maybe that means I have to become more adult like. But I still want to fight it. So yeah, a quarter century approaches.....arghhhh!
