Birthday thanks

I must admit that this is the most 23 I’ve ever felt.  I reckon there are some sure-fire signs of growing up and for me, one of them is certainly the lack of discrepancy between the age I feel and the age I am or am about to turn (though it’s an entirely subjective measure anyway). … More Birthday thanks

Chameleons

Ok Viking. Exactly what part of you is it that gets kicks off turning up to my ends and feeding me salted peanuts and ‘something like Vailima?’ and then pissing off to assume responsibility elsewhere?!
