I always have the @AppleScruffSenior to rely on when the grey hair starts piling on.

 

Just to make you feel old in return, I joined the forum when I was 15, so you've seen me do both my Junior Cert and Leaving Cert exams, start and hopefully come May finish university. 

The fact that I was the baby of the forum age-wise when I joined and now I'm in the 'hip 20-somethings' age group that I considered Linde to be in- ahhhhhhhhhh, it's terrifying.

As for my birthday, I've spent most of today doing college work and making myself somewhat presentable for an upcoming job interview (I have finally found a skin mask that does wonders!). My brother got me a book on Prince Albert so I'm happy out.

 

@The Hole Got Fixed I will never forgive you for forgetting my birthday. Now, there may (and most likely will) come a day when I forget your birthday and you will bring my quote back up but I am now putting you on my 'list of enemies' and you will forever remain there.

Good day to you!

Happy 200th Birthday , Sir John Tenniel! 

For those of you not in the know, Tenniel was an English illustrator and political cartoonist who is most famous for illustrating Lewis Carroll's Alice and Wonderland and its sequels (who we all know our own John Lennon was a huge fan of ahdn_john_08_gif. Another Beatley connection is that George Harrison quoted the Cheshire Cat in "Any Road," but I'm starting to go off-topic.....) 

I'm personally a huge fan of Tenniel and I have little stickers of his Alice Artwork on my phone case (right next to my giant Beatles sticker) that I just adore and will most of the time just spend time staring at them in class. I love Tenniel's artwork because he has such adept attention-to-detail and a sort of grotesque-inspired art style that I get lost in (and most likely heavily inspired Lennon in his own artwork......just saying....)

I love the Alice books, and Tenniel's illustrations are the first and final word in Alice illustrations. That is all.

And Sir,

Today, born in 1916, would have been my Granny Margaret's 26th birthday. My mother's mother, a fiery redhead from County Donegal, who loved being a leapling.

"You'll never guess how many birthdays I've seen," she used to wink with a grin.

Happy 26th birthday Granny Margaret.
