What a lovely day

October 11th, 2004 (01:38 pm)
happy

current mood: happy
current song: Kenny Loggins - Footloose

Firstly, a great big thanks to everybody who's congratulated me on my birthday.

It's been a great, fun, marvelous day today - almost perfect. Was able to have a very long lie-in today, complete with my brand new birthday present of Terry Pratchett's latest hardback : Going Postal. Very fitting, considering my job, and that I had the week off and didn't have to go near the place.

A nice long soak in a hot bath, caught up with a friend who I haven't seen for a couple of years (and I'll be heading round her place tomorrow night now), and just generally had a relaxing time. Plus, I got HP smut written for my birthday from the lovely and talented gianfared, and the equally brilliant empressvesica is doing a Faith/Dick Grayson/Barbara Gorden fic for me.

Wish all birthdays were this relaxing. :)

Thanks, everyone.

EDIT/UPDATE And for all you Harry Potter fans, who haven't heard Draco representing for the dark side, might very well enjoy This : Tony Goldmark - Sirius Black. Made me smile considerably.

Trust me. :)

Niiiiiice. I saw that a million times a week or so ago but I was never at home and my office speakers got fried in Hurricane number one. I love the part in the middle. I can see what all the hubbub was about. And the flurry of icon making.

Yeah - I somehow missed all the fun too. I saw some references, but that was it.

LJ's "remind me of Friends' birthdays" feature has failed me at the first opportunity after I enabled it.

Happy birthday.

I got "Going Postal" for my birthday, took it to read on the bus on the way to work, and forgot to bring it back (my wife picks me up in the car as I finish work after the last bus). Forgot it again next day, and the next, and the next. It's still there.

So I've had it a week and only read about twenty pages.

Well, having finished it this morning, I can highly recommend it. From the Royal Mail perspective, he's obviously had some inside information in doing it. Some of the stuff is just too close to recent events.

If you're interested, then I work on the pi machine. :D

I think I will friend you. Do you mind? I would beg ask you to read gianfared's fic, but she told me what it was about, so I think I'll pass. I prefer After Happily Ever.

Anyway, in honor of friending you, I'm going to dedicate a song to you on my LJ, because I like your name. Hope you don't mind. I'm harmless, really - just ask gianfared. *grins innocently and bares claws*

Hi!

Hope you don't mind that I've friended you. (Am looking around for interesting people to friend :D)

By the way, happy birthday... er, a bit late...

Happy slightly belated birthday. =)

And Tony is a hoot. Friend of mine met him, the Great Luke Ski, and Dr. Demento in August.

*stares at the icon* Ok, that has my attention now...

Yeah OK I suck. So happy birthday, glad you had a wonderful day - see I told you that Going Postal was good. Not that I had prior knowledge of that :-)

Nah, you're cool.

And I certainly don't know anyone who managed to read a copy 4 weeks before it went on sale. No siree. Not me.

Happy birthday BTW. I forgot to say that yesterday. Why the 17? Just curious.

Fucking serious [samiamicons]

The 17? Well, turned out there were several Booster's already running round, so I stuck a reasonably high number on the end to make me unique.

Why the 17? Why not?

Also, your F&I and FF.net links don't work. *sigh* I was going to see if you had written and HP fanfiction. I don't like Buffy.

Thanks for pointing that out - all links now repaired, and ready for inspection.

Dunno what happened to the FF.net one, but I really should have changed the Fire & Ice one after they moved. *slaps self*

Funny icon! But you still didn't tell me about the 17.
