March 13, 2005
although i have not yet turned 21 – roll on tuesday! aheh – i have garnered a wonderful haul of presents. adding to the ones from my lovely university buddies, my parents have now furnished me with my Special 21st Birthday Watch, which is pretty bling, the complete delia's how to cook [rick – we shall be eating well next term; apparently you can stuff brioche with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon without invoking the apocalypse], and a powder blue hangbag shaped like a watering can [golly, really, is all one can say to that, and it's not as cool as the one i wanted, but it makes me look horticultural and that's a first].
being in the house has its drawbacks. the toilets are a different height, so every bathroom visit is scored by a single yelp as i half-fall onto the bowl. bedtime is much earlier, the house is shut up and silent by ten and i am left to wander it like a ghost. most annoyingly, sunday dinner is delicious but does not come with the requisite five helpings of stuffing. ah well. the internet is speedy and the computers are virus-free, it's warm and clean and we have big tvs with satellite, and joy, coleslaw in the fridge. and cake. time for cake!
