Another year older...

...and not deeper in debt so I guess that's something.

Yet another rather low-key Birthday. Pretty much a side-effect of getting back from Manila rather close to the date, last year, it was the Provence trip that got in the way. Still, a pleasant enough day - had work to do but met with some guys from the fencing club in the evening. It was actually a farewell drinks thing for Jo but, hey, quite happy to be drinking beer in good company, whatever the occasions! Only concern was the occasional threat to sign Happy Birthday in the pub...

Really must try to organise something next year but Jo's also pointed out I have 2 years to sort out that U-Boat trip for my 40th, a reminder of my mis-reading a poster for the "AU boat trip" (as in Athletic Union) for "a U-Boat trip" Heh. Know which one I'd find more interesting. Only problem is - WTF does one find a submarine for hire? ;-)

Also somewhat amused by the number of organisations that have been sending me email Birthday greetings - even got one nominally in the name of my employers' CEO!

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. I succumbed and bought a copy of Legend of the Rangers, just to complete my B5 DVD collection. Have also splashed out and burned Amazon vouchers on the likes of US BSG DVD sets and a book on the New Model Army. At this rate, my English Civil War book collection will start to rival my Vietnam one! Also ordered a copy of the 25th anniversary edition of Flash Gordon to begin researching Ming the Merciless costumes.

Am still feeling awfully tempted by the Aliens Colonial Marines BDUs from Men At Arms and the armour from Spatcave...

Regretably spoiled for choice for Saturday activities. Looks like there's a Starfury pub meet, a LOTNA cross-London treasure hunt and pub meet and an ECW living history display in Covent Garden by Essex's all on the same day. Still, better class of problem, I suppose!
