A Day Like Any Other (But Only Once A Year)

It’s my birthday! Have some virtual cake from Google:

Happy Birthday Alexandrina!

(Seriously – isn’t that the cutest?)

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know how old I am today, so I’m not going to reiterate it, but I’ll just say that it’s one of those annoying in-between ages that is not fulfilling nor powerful. Today might be any other day, but for the sudden influx of people writing on my Facebook wall and cards and telephone calls I have to juggle.

Awesome people who share my birthday (there are many many, but some I daren’t mention. *cough* Robert Pattinson *cough, grimace*):

My cousin. She’s exactly seven years older than me.

Marie of Brabant, Queen of France [in 1254. Yes, I did just put this in for the sake of it. 😉 ]

Charles Watson-Wentworth, 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, PM.

Pope Pius IX.

Nandor Fodor.

Zoë Wanamaker!

Stevie Wonder.

Richard Madeley.

Chris Maitland.

Magdalena Walach.

Alison Goldfrapp!

To further prove May is an awesome month, let me list some fictional birthdays I’m proud to have been born near: Alice [in Wonderland], Katniss, Lisa Simpson, Cornelia Hale [from W.I.T.C.H., a comic series I loved as a child. I always felt close to Cornelia], Dr. House, Arthur, Agnetha King (because I can), and many more you’d know but I never watched, from Friends, South Park, Lost, True Blood, Shameless… I could go on. But I won’t.

Yes, THAT Arthur

Onto me, though. Isn’t it peculiar how time moves? I’ve never understood it, personally.

How did this little creature…

I liked pointing. Started my fascination with life in general.

Turn into this?

I’m not sure, either. Some sort of cat-person? Get the catnip gun, Captain…

But, seriously, I love that photo. Taken Sunday after the dress up Hall photo, so it is fresh. 🙂 So, that’s my life for now, Tweets, photos, brain crazies and all!

Oh, and happy Abbotsbury Garland Day, people who live in Dorset!
