b) Anyone that participated in the comments regarding that [poorly] coded post.
c) Jess, for the lovely presents I've received today (they did get here on time, huzzah).
d) Anyone who wants to come round and tidy this place up, it's a mess. I'll pay you in Doritos.
The family came in with the cake on midnight, knowing I usually don't wake up early and they were off to work. My cake had an upsidedown 5 and a snapped bit of a 0 to make 21 on it, which was sweet and exactly the type of thing that's randomly amusing to me. Mum also burnt her hand lighting the candles.
Mum's got me a little thing, a clock/temperature machine. It's novel but useless. Grandad got me a horrible camera, which was just useless, but that's the type of guy he is. For my Mum's 50th birthday he gave her a branded umbrella. By branded we mean a snow white brolly supporting IFAW.
I've been travelling around today, seeing the family who've been wishing me well for the day. I'm off for the evening to see Bob with my sister. Bob went out with Mum during the teenage years in my life and he showed an interest in me, far more than any other boyfriend of Mum's has, which means he feels the closest to a Dad I have. I always try to keep in contact with him, even though things with Mum didn't work out.
The stingy git in me prevailed, as the only things I've got myself today to celebrate are a second-hand copy of Super Mario Advance 4 (aka the portable Mario 3) and a Futurama boxset. Still, it's been nice and calm today and the evening looks set to go well too.
I think I'll have to contact my sister, though, just to see where she is. She was meant to get here at 7.
