Today, somehow, I managed to reach my 37th birthday. The 37th birthday is one of those weird ones as you’re still quite a distance away from reaching 40 but you are waving goodbye to the “midthirties”. The relentless march towards turning 40 continues ever onwards.
It’s always interesting to find out that as the years roll by who will actually take time out of their day to wish you a happy birthday. I just can’t help but feel that we have too much reliance on Facebook to remind us all when our friends birthdays are or is that just progression or revolution?
This gets me thinking about Facebook. Facebook as it stands really doesn’t have much more scope to grow and continue doing what it does at the moment so hence buying the oculus rift could actually be a good idea. Or is Mark ZuckerBerg just using the Facebook monies to throw shooter at the wall and see what sticks.
And this is why for once I feel like I’m the head of the curve. I don’t use Facebook in any way shape or form to keep up with people. Granted I might dip in and out to see what’s going on but then it all comes back to me why I don’t use Facebook. Normally it’s the same regurgitated crap with never ending self the pictures being taken with women trying to pounds but all it does instead of making them look sexy is make them look like they’re trying to have a Poo.
Back to my birthday.
Quite honestly I’ve not had a bad day. I kept myself to myself and there was only one person I wished could have said happy birthday to me. My dad.
It’s worth noting that command the rest of the surviving family haven’t really spoken to me since dad died. Every Christmas I make sure I send them a Christmas card and I’ve never yet to receive one back or even a text message from my little sister to say happy birthday.
495 Days or 70 Weeks and 5 Days is how long I had to wait for my Copanhagen Parts Magnetic Lights Backed on kickstarter and what a pile of crap they turned out to be.

Don’t you just hate it when you get pleasantly, no amazingly surprised and you can’t share it with anyone?
this happened to me last night and I have to say I never expected it to come from this particular source. The only slight fly in the ointment is that I want call for the next nine days so getting any spare time to take advantage of this amazing opportunity 🙂 could be a touch problematic. At least there is always face time LOL.
Anyone have been in a situation where you meet someone for the first time and for some reason they leave you with a “funny feeling”? I’ve had this just the other day and I really can’t place or accurately describe the vibe she gives off.

I realised the other day that it’s coming up to more than 10 years since I first started blogging. On my other websites I’ve managed to at least get them to fund themselves. Granted ever since Google changed their search algorithms my hits on the aforementioned other sites have plummeted. Going from about 500 a day down to 100 if I’m lucky.
What does surprise me is the number of click through’s I get from placing adverts on my sites.
It’s been a little under five months since my last adventure to Oktoberfest. If you remember my time there was ever miserable experience and really didn’t get any better despite seeing Nina for a year. Granted it was amazing to see Nina again and there was a thing on my side for her but seeing as she’s classed as “the type to kiss anyone” I backed right off….
