happy birthday to me...
...happy birthday to me something something up your jumper happy birthday to me
it's four this thing four flipping years of bafflement bewilderment waffling and heaven knows what. four. with a few little rests obviously but still. i got four of the lovliest little books in the world as a small present what with this year being a year i actually try and learn some things and all. facts and that. like that "immature gannets are first dusky all over, later piebald or white sprinkled with dark spots" and "towards nightfall a vague darkness may sometimes be seen rising slowly in the east : this is the shadow of the earth, cast by the setting sun upon the air". my brain's going to pop i just know it but it'll be worth it to read such magical stuff. i thought we'd best listen to some magical stuff too and i've been saving this for just such a celebration. it's one of my favourites. ta ever so chums for popping by and joining in
