Well, it's my birthday! I am officially 27 years old. Wow. Who'd have seen that coming? Given my usual tendency to freak out about getting older, I actually feel surprisingly okay about it.

I'm back in the UK from America now. I got back a few days ago, after a horrendous journey which should have taken half a day and wound up taking almost two days due to missing a flight, delays, and other assorted crap. I actually slept solidly for almost 24 hours after I got back, I was so exhausted. But hey. I'm here. Back in the jolly ol' UK.

Getting back to England was almost a birthday in itself, with all the stuff that was waiting for me... I had three packages waiting in my room! Two of them were Summer of Sonic gifts from kindhearted people who picked stuff up for me at the event after they learned I'd had to cancel because of my mum's recent cancer diagnosis. One was an art print of Archie vs Fleetway, and the other was a mixed bag of assorted goodies, including an SoS '11 t-shirt, Free Comic Book Day comic, and a couple of Tails-themed mechanical pencils. The third package was a bulk-load of Archie comics, including the whole Scourge and the Suppression Squad arc but also much more (seriously, about 50 comics) from an old friend who was getting rid of them. So, thanks to Urtheart, Ciara, Adam and Sel for all of these wonderful gifts (:

As far as actual birthday gifts go, my mum's promised to buy me a pair of slippers in town tomorrow for my poor freezing feet. It might not seem like much, but I'm really happy about that. My bedroom gets so cold, especially at night, and I need slippers badly! She also said that if her finances aren't too bad by Christmas, she'll put some money towards me getting a new computer, since this laptop is about 4 years old now and is really starting to show its age. Can't even run a browser for more than 20 minutes without it getting overheated. But the best gift from my mum was the card she gave me... it was so sweet. It said that I'm a once in a lifetime miracle that brings her more joy than she thought possible, and she got all teary-eyed when she gave it to me, telling me how true it was, even if cheesy. I felt so special then. I love you, mum.

And then there's the birthday art I get from my sweet Jei-ji every year. This year's made me laugh out loud! Under a cut for size.

Hahaha... Tails' rage-face in the last panel is my favourite. The doodle on the end, she said, is something she just sketched whilst listening to that song. It's awesome. Thank you so much, shmoo! I love you!

Finally, I woke up to like a kazillion notifications of birthday greetings on SSMB, Facebook, and elsewhere. So, thank you guys. I hadn't really mentioned my impending birthday anywhere because I hadn't been around much, so I didn't expect anyone to really say anything. It was nice to see I haven't been forgotten (:

Oh! And then the mail came, and in it was the free sample of Baileys' new biscotti flavour which I signed up for online like two months ago. What great timing! :D

So, yeah, that's about it, really. Sorry I've been absent so long, guys. I'm back now XD

Glad to see you back safe and sound, it's been a long time. :D

Say, um...I didn't know you have a Facebook. I know I never advertised it on my LJ, but I actually have one too. I recently added [ profile] djtifabal to it, so I figured I'd leave a link to it here, if that's ok. (shifty eyes)

I've said this on SSMB, but, well, happy birthday. Glad you're back (it was kinda glum seeing no updates on your blog for two over months) and even gladder to hear that your mom is fine and able to show her love for you.

Y'know it feels oddly appropriate I finally recieved that SEGA Jacket on your birthday!
And that Angel Island Clip works too.

My uncle dropped them by and I reached Singapore after my studies finally which is how I'd got them.

Am working on a Sonic-themed birthday party for myself, this being his special anniversary and all. Are you getting Sonic Generations?

Domo Arigato!

I'm glad you finally got the stuff! (: That's good to know.

I might get Generations, but it certainly won't be at the launch date. I need moneys first :P

In that case, you should keep a wary eye for the sales on Steam.

My friend's flying my collector's edition over! Can't wait! even if I don't own a PS3.

I-- I missed Jai's birthday?! ;___;

I'm so sorry!


Your friends are so sweet! ^_^

I like to wear wool fashion socks in place of slippers!

They're much easier to wear, easier to move in, and so very comfy~! But, I guess, if it gets REALLY cold, maybe those big, plush slippers are better. ^o^;

Awwww, that comic is hilarious and adorable! xDDDD

Really, Tails? Really?! xDDD;

J-Jai, that name! >x>;; Even if it seems she's mostly given up on this journal...

Aww, well, I'm glad the gifs did their magic!

Aww, that's a shame! But, I suppose inadvertently using Static and Thundershock at random isn't very fun, is it?

Lucky~! ♥

Wah, I'm sorry! I didn't know you were still hiding it ;_; I couldn't edit it because you replied, so I deleted it XD;; My bad...

And that video is perfect... I always get static shocks from car doors XD;; I'm terrified of it.

It's okay! x3;; Thanks!

I had the same issue too, so then, I developed a habit of knocking on the window glass before I open doors.

It confuses the stuffing out of everyone else, but it helps me avoid shocks by losing the electric charge before I touch the handles, because the material of a 'abaya is definitely the sort that builds up static! ^^;

I haven't tried touching ashpalt or walls yet, though, or using my palm instead of my fingers (it's so counter intuitive!). xD;

Happy (belated) birthday! I apologise for the goodness knows how long delay in seeing this journal post but I've been away in Italy without internets so D: hope you had a great day, and sorry to hear about the hard flight back. Sometimes public transport really can suck.

It's okay, and thanks! (: Yeah, it was a pretty sucky journey but I made it home in the end. Hope you and your 'bonds are doing okay.
