Well I'm 25

I'm technically 25 I guess, since I stayed up past midnight tonight.

I can't say it feels particularly different (especially since I'm kind of done with celebrations after the last few days / nights).

But yeah, happy birthday to me. Hip hip Hooray!

Um, I got a cowboy hat now. It was kind of a practical purchase (I have to do something to stop the hair blowing and sun shining in my eyes on the rare ocassions I am outside) and kind of an impulse purchase (I was feeling way too conspicuous at the Stampede without one). I guess it was kind of a present to myself too (since my habit of mostly ignoring birthdays means I have no right to expect presents from anyone I don't share over 25% of my genetic material with).

Apart from that life goes on much the same as ever. I can now legally feel complimented when asked for ID (since it's if you look under 25 that they are supposed to ID you at pubs here).

I will be in Calgary until at least the end of August, and depending on money, and jobs, and stuff, I might just stick around here for September too, and then see if I can afford a week or two of touristing before flying to Europe.

I'm going to sleep now to wake up for my real birthday.

From one Cancerian to another! Have fun and enjoy yourself.
Happy Birthday to the Penguin!
There is life after 25, 30, 40 & 50...Mrs H said so today (she said at nearly 80!)and remembers you as a 12 year old neighbour when you came here! Anyway if 30 is the new 20 as a colleague told us last week, then 25 is the new 17.5? I hope not as your life has changed a lot since those days.

Congratulations again
