Happy Birthday!

18 10 2008

Today, as you probably guessed, was my birthday. Well, I say this, but it was also Harry’s birthday as well. How’s that for bad planning? Anyway, what did I get other than Spore?

An iPod Touch (which I’m using to type this)
A 1TB external hard drive (which we had to send back as it didn’t work)
$100 (yes, it was American dollars!)
A case for my iPod
3 books
Another £40 to make £105
£20 iTunes voucher

So, it was a good 15th birthday! And to top it off, we went to the Thai Elephant 2 in Peacehaven for an all-you-can-eat dinner!

Check out one of the cards I got!

PS Episode 2 of Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show went live today. See you soon!

La Premièr Cadeau

17 10 2008

What’s this, you say? The first present? But it’s my birthday tomorrow! It’s true; I received my received by first birthday present early today, along with £65 early birthday money as well! What was the present? It was Spore Creatures for Nintendo DS. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but it looks good!

So, what will I get tomorrow, on my actual birthday? Who knows (except the people who bought the presents and then proceeded to wrap them up)?





We’re Better, Connected.

Most of today was spent doing not a lot, and watching Octopussy (James Bond) on a poor-quality VHS, but some of it included getting all the computers in the house networked. This basically involved allowing access through the firewall for each computer, choosing a folder to share and finding it on another computer. Me and Harry also had a debate about why he would or wouldn’t need and iPod Shuffle, which is his latest phase: listening to my music in iTunes. Luckily, he’s not getting grubby fingerprints on my Mac – he’s sharing my library within iTunes on his PC. Anyway, the debate ended up with him deciding to ask for one for his birthday, which is exactly 45 days, 5 hours, 10 minutes and 30 seconds away. Unfortunately for me, this is also my birthday… I’ll try and upload a countdown to the sidebar on the blog if you’re interested. Turns out the only way to get a timer is using javascript, which WordPress doesn’t allow.
