Squirrel Happy

Another year over, and a new one just begun.

Well, a fine day all round. I awoke early and then went back to sleep to an extraordinarily vivid Red Dead Redemption dream, before waking up again at eight o'clock to a nice cup of tea. After a walk with the dog, I had a fine haul of presents to open, including a Laurie Anderson CD/DVD, a cowboy hat, Milkybar buttons and beef jerky, a copy of 'Bear Ridge to Nettle Lane' and an olive tree which will be my very own tree of idleness in years to come. Aces.

The afternoon treat was a trip into town to mooch around the Tramlines music festival and drink alcohol. The alcohol based part of the day started with a raspberry mojito, followed by a variety of beers in various pubs, with the music being mainly the three bands we saw on the New Music stage (which ironically seemed to be channeling Joy Division and the Stone Roses). More excellentness.

Home to a Chinese takeaway and MOAR BEER, and that's my birthday in a generous nutshell!

I'm so glad you had a fun birthday! Raspberry mojitos sound awesome!

Yes they do sound awesome. A tree of idleness - that sounds nice. I want a tree of idleness, too.
