... aged 7 3/4
Hello! I made cake. And decorated cake. CAKE. There will be photos, probably.

Karate this evening was fantastic. We learned how kicks work. Doing hokku-geri at head height is fun.

This summer I am going to learn to walk on my hands properly. I managed a couple of steps in the kitchen, but ran out of room.

After the caffeine-hangover I started having on Sunday, I daren't stop drinking the stuff. I should try to sleep some time this week.

My Mac says it's 12:01. [sings] "Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday little badger, happy birthday to me." What? Oh, I'm 21 again, of course.

Current Mood: older and caffeinateder

Happy birthday indeed!

I had even remembered, too, though the reminder is good :-)

I didn't mean for it to be a reminder (for a start, I'm terrible with other people's birthdays, so am in no position to do any remindering!) -- I was just singing to myself. :-) But thank you anyway!

Many happy returns, Janet! You're two years younger than me, I see. :)

Happy badgerday, Jan. Many of my friends and I have had badgerdays over the last fortnight or so. Enjoy your cake!

Happy Birthday!

Which kick is hokku-geri ?

Thank you!

I think the name means "hooked kick" or something like that; you swing the leg up and forwards and then hook it back (i.e. bend at the knee) as you turn (roughly same sort of turn as for mawashi geri, yoko geri etc). So you can kick somebody in the back of the head. Er, I'll show you some time, I'm not very good at explaining kicks...

Happy birthday to you!

Hoy you! Speaking to you again would be nice! You at next B-Movie? I'm aiming for it.

I'm probably not going to be there, because I'm playing in a concert on Saturday night & I don't want to be falling asleep in the middle of it. Okay, so I am a girly wuss and can't do late nights the way I used to. But I'm the wrong side of 25 now, you know! ;-)

Also there are other people who I suspect didn't go last time largely because my partner and I were going to be there, & I think it might be polite to let them go this time.

It would be good to see you again though... you ever in Cambridge? Give me a shout if so. Might make it to the B-Movie after next (when is it?), but B-Movie isn't the best place for talking anyway...

Thank you! Though I think I just swallowed my tongue trying to pronounce that... ;)

Bugger. Is it today? Bugger.

Happy Birthday, have a lovely day.

Thanks, & don't worry about it. We can both blame hoiho for not telling either of us when each other's was! ;)
