She doesn't know who's more surprised - herself, or the stool she just tripped over.
And now, reverting from third person before I confuse my split personalities any more than they already are, I give you .... THE OBLIGATORY BIRTHDAY POST!
Words cannot express how long I have been deliberating over what to write here.
1) Should I give you an update on my life right now? - Nah, I'm not doing anything beyond revising, and I've whined about that enough already.
2) Should I do a special post about birthdays? - Pretty pointless, considering they're nothing special. Everyone has them after all.
3) Should I write a deep and meaningful post all about the trials of growing up, complete with examples from my own life, all topped off with an inspiring but blatantly obvious message? - Tried. Failed. Bought the t-shirt. Twice.
Nah. That's not going to work.
And, after much deliberation, I decided to follow in the small hairy footsteps of the Hobbits, and do a backwards birthday.
This is my birthday present to all of you.
