Birthday!

I turn 21 today.





Now I can drink legally in the states. Yay America! ;)

Max gave me a choice of restaurants to go to tonight and I'm leaning towards Belgos. I would try something new, but it wouldn't be much fun if it turned out to be a disappointment.

I spoke to my parents for an hour last night on the phone. They're back in Port Townsend and their adventure in Spain sounded amazing.

Highlights:

- VIP backstage passes. Food, drinks, pool.

- Staying in a converted monastery with 20 other artists and musicians from around the world.

- Performing.

- Gael running into PJ Harvey in the bathroom.

- Chatting with the bass player from Death Cab For Cutie ("He was so sweet!")

- Checking out the food on Norman Cook's (Fatboy Slim) plate.

- Watching Orbital perform.

- Swimming in the mediterranean at night while lasers from a rave danced in the water.

Next spring they will probably be performing again, this time in Italy.

Needless to say, I'm pretty damn envious. :)

Oh my goodness! Happy Birthday!

I didn't realize you were so young...You're younger than me! You always look so sophisticated and wise beyond your years (obviously, as you're a baby!) :)

Thanks!! For the compliments as well. :) People seem to think I'm older than I am, I'm never quite sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. ;)

Thank you, Grace! I hope everything is well with you. Your journal is one of my favorites, by the way. Not that I like to choose favorites, but well, it's true. :)

I was due to be born on the 8th, like my father and grandfather, but I was a week late.
Figures I would mess up the generational trend. ;)

Re: hi, happy birthday
hello, thank you kindly!

I think they were a kind of lily. They were given to me by my boyfriend's dad, so I probably shouldn't have rolled around naked with them and taken photographs, but so goes. hm.

Re: h e y
Thank you very fucking much. ;)

Las Vegas, though. I am drawn to it and there was no way I was going to visit it if I couldn't drink, so I've been waiting for this day. Otherwise, I'm still pretty happy/lucky to have been able to celebrate in London.

You're too kind, thank you very much. :)

p.s. I did get your email, I know it was quite awhile ago that you sent it, but I've been so behind on all my email. I feel quite bad about not replying to it yet, I will soon.

I did have a wonderful day today. I'm just pleased that I won't be refused alcohol now when I'm out with my parents. Silly country.

Wow that would be great (snarg music)! I'll bet you will come up with something beautiful. It was a long time ago, but I still remember the collaborative projects my dad and Z! did together in the past. That was the first time my eyes were really opened to the potential of net art.

Anyway, thank you kindly. :)
