It’s My Birthday!

Thirty-Three years ago, at one minute past midnight, in Lincolnshire England, I screamed at a doctor and took my first breaths in this cruel, yet to be plague-filled world.

I haven’t got a mass amount planned for my week other than not being at work. The older you get it’s time off to do absolutely nothing that seems the most appealing. I am going to the seaside to re-enact and old family holiday, but other than that my plans are to largely relax and stare grumpily at anything I disapprove of. I’m not quite into the ‘grumpy old man sat on a porch being mad at the world’ stage just yet, but such seasoned professionals don’t hit old age and adapt to their new role over night.

No, dear, readers, they put hours of practice in. That is what I shall be doing. Practicing for old age.

And drinking.


I’m also aware that the display pic for this post is probably absolutely massive. But can you really have too much of a good thing? And pineapples getting down and living their best lives is certainly a good thing.

  1. Happy birthday.

    Practice makes perfect. So keep on practicing and one day you too can join the Grumpy Old Man club.

    As for the picture, it shows up just fine in the reader, but when I come to your actual site I don’t see any picture.

    1. Hmmm I shall class the mystery of the vanishing picture as my birthday present to the world. After all, the joy of party pineapples can’t last forever

      One day, I look forward to looking in the mirror and congratulating myself on many years of fruitful practice

      1. Hah, you think you know about decks! You should come to NZ and whole new mental vistas would open up for you! Decks can be short and long, wide and narrow, old and full of holes or shiny and well-maintained… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. Happy Birthday Aaron!!

    Please don’t get as grumpy and old as Derrick the Bookstooge yet will you? The world can’t handle two of him. Also, I’m pretty sure drinking is a prerequisite for crotchetiness, so I think you can just do both at once 😁

      1. Glad to hear it! Well, Catalonia in September – rather nice, although it was raining a bit every now and then. Nice castles! Places ready to shoot fantasy shows in, and Game of Thrones used Girona…
