I apologize for not having posted anything in 2014 but I (as usual) was a little busy. I kind of decided that the laying on the couch all day watching one episode of one of my favorite TV series after another is a little too unproductive for me. And then yesterday we had a big 19th Birthday party, which really was nice!
I usually am not much of a person who celebrates her own Birthday, simply because I don’t really see the reason to celebrate as I haven’t done anything but simply being there – but yesterday, I dare to say, was one of the greatest Birthdays I have ever had!
First Darah and I were planning on having a girls night out and going “clubbing” on Friday night till Saturday morning. Bot of us, though, we sick on Friday morning. We felt fine on Saturday morning for some weird (and good) reason. She came over and we had a lot of cake and craic. She’s the person I’d refer to as something like a best friend and I was more than happy that she was there. About a year ago none of us would have been able to imagine the two of us being friends again. Co-exist. Maybe. But not friends. I screwed it. But somehow we’re closer than ever before and even Father Rock has voiced his delight about it a couple of weeks ago.
I was really happy that all of my family were coming around and I was more than satisfied with having those people around me. Even a couple of people I didn’t dare to think that they might remember me called or texted – which felt really nice. Yet, there was that one friend I hoped would remember me. After all what happened and after all what had been said I thought this might be the case. But as I already thought – no call, no text, nothing at all. I don’t give a lot about getting Birthday calls and I now know what to expect from that friend.
HOWEVER. There was also something I most definitely did not see coming. Right before my grandparents arrived there was a knock on the door and when I opened my friend Marilyn with a giant BATMAN cake! A huge black bat on yellow ground.
As far as I remember I have never gotten a surprise Birthday cake (except from my parents and grans) and I was just so damn surprised that she was there .. and that genius Batman cake. That was so awesome.
Later when my grandparents were gone Darah and I went out to meet some of my guy friends out at the pub. We had a lot of fun there, too.
And today, I very much felt like really getting some work done and I actually did (get some work done) – which really does feel nice.
Also I got an email from a friend in America saying that my package finally arrived. We decided to swap books (which I think is a great idea) and the whole thing has been going on since easter as the package I had sent returned to me a couple of times for whatever reasons. Now it finally made it’s way to it’s presupposed destination. And like I promised I finally opened mine (which has been here since the last summer vacation. It was so hard not to peak inside, but a promise is a promise, isn’t it?)
I already started reading the book and it is really good – and very hard to put down!
Also here’s another picture for you. Did it with my new markers. The original illustration was done by Tom Percival and I just recreated it, nothing to be really proud of but I still feel like sharing. Maybe one of you knows the name of this guy? (He’s a detective.)
