Things I got for my Birthday

(or, Tomorrow I will be More Serious, but I have Today Off)
(subtitled, an exercise in strange capitalisation and parentheticals)

  • a Parker Pen (I've written a couple of pages with it already. It's different to a ballpoint pen, but very cool.)
  • a grown-up handbag (Thanks, Grandma!)
  • a poetry anthology with at least one poet for every letter of the alphabet. I think it's a really fun idea.
  • The Wordsworth Dictionary of Phrase and Fable I've wanted a phrase and fable dictionary for a while, so I'm very happy with this. (Yes, also very nerdy. Seriously, this is even more cool than an ordinary dictionary, especially for browsing. (Oh, do most people not browse the dictionary? I do.))
  • a gold cross and chain. Well, technically I haven't got this yet, but we're going shopping on Saturday (I think) so I can pick one I like.
  • locked in my room with strings of balloons. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but I did wake up with balloons strung across the doorway. And a cup of tea that said 'Happy 18th, Charlotte'. And crumpets just about to be made. I love you, brothers.
  • chocolate cake. Yummy!

    From one dictionary-browser to another. . .

  4. Thanks, Kate! I'm glad I'm not the only one.
