What's My Age Again?

Today is my birthday and I am wishing for summer on my birthday candles.

I'm also wishing for these things, or a time machine so they could be around when I would be age-appropriate for them.

Last year Montana and I heelyed around on Christmas Eve. I would love to wear them to work but alas, we don't sell them in my size.

When I went up to Darwin for skywalker's birthday this year, my neighbourhood kids (all grown up since I've been away!) let me have a go on theirs. I was pretty bad at it, but I could be awesome with a bit of practice!

Kids' Jeep.
How awesome is that?! It fully goes, none of this pedaling or push along like I had to do with my fire engine. Uphill, in the snow, both ways.

The obsession continues.

What was your best birthday present ever? What did you always wish for?


  1. Happy Birthday!

    My best birthday present is...well, kinda weird. It was a guide to rocks and minerals that I got when I was about twelve. I loved going through that and looking at all the cool different kinds of rocks and minerals there are out there! Even though I never pursued that line of study, I have a hard time passing up any guides to rocks and minerals I find in the bargain sections of bookstores.

  2. Happy birthday!

    My fave birthday present: Hmm.. I don't know. Probably a book I got when I was 13 or so. It was called Who did what When?. It listed a bunch of famous scientists and what they contirbuted to science or the world in general. ~good book~

  3. Opps, sorry the above book is actually Who Discovered What When?

  4. There you have it: geeky books make great presents.

    SW, I don't remember that one.
