Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes, it's appreciated!

It's been an alright day, but not exactly epic. I had the day off and had lunch with my mum, but other than that I cleaned the kitchen floor and cleaned out a litter tray. I had the birthday treat last week when I went to see My Bloody Valentine 3D. Never mind.

I have a Supernatural fic I wanted to post today, but I thought better of damning it before I start by posting it on Friday.

Ho hum.

Happy Birthday, Sweetie!! I've had birthdays like that but, the bright side is that you treated yourself to something special. :)

HUGS

Thanks. I wasn't working, that's the main thing!

Could've been worse, presumably...

And happy birthday again - did you see I finally managed to get together that ridiculous fic with Illyria's spawn? That's your treat! ;D

Oh yeah, just not very exciting.

I did see your fic and I am in the middle of reading it right now!

If it makes you feel better I've so far spent the evening doing nothing but eat a rather large amount of jelly beans.

And ooh...

Jelly Belly beans? Jelly Bean Factory beans? Because I might have had a few of them myself.

Nah, nah, Jelly Belly jelly beans - all the better for the Sour Mix. Though they've all gone now. :( I'm left with Coke. :) And possibly some Jamaican Ginger cake...

I only tried the sours last week, but they were fab.

They are faboo.

It's a bit bad, because I loved them so much when I was younger and they were always like the most mega of treats - then I rediscovered them a couple of years ago and realised not only that I can afford them out of my own pocket, but also that my sweet-consumption has become my own responsibility, so I really can purchase the holy grail of the 500g bag (this was much like the discovery that it is in fact possible to own sticky-back plastic). And they have new flavours now! Besides the sours, which are excellent, things like Margarita have been missing from my life for far too long.

(Not that I'm hyper now.)

Where are you getting such crack? After Christmas we couldn't find any. Back in the days for yore, it used to be Clements.

Londres - if you end up on Oxford street Topshop and Selfridges have the pick'n'mix (plus some random Cyber Candy shop on the way to Covent Garden - v. cool shop BTW, with mostly American imports, which also sell Jolly Ranchers, which they used to sell in the local newsagents back in about '99), but Topshop's the least expensive. In Cambridge I've only found the pre-packaged mixes - Topshop again (which stocks the ones of just sours <3) but John Lewis has them as well. I find the 49 flavour ones too full of Root Beer and liquorice for my liking though.

Did you ever go to Hamilton's in the Harlequin? They had them before they shut down. I miss that shop - the sherbet lemons there were ace. :(

I know about Cybercandy, I get my Pocky fix from them (let me know if you ever see melon flavour Pocky anywhere, it's to die for but very rare), I was just too lazy o go into the smoke. I know John Lewis had them before xmas, but I'd forgotten, they're probably the best best.

I like the Root Beer and I don't mind the liquorice, sizzling cinnamon is bleugh though.

Hamilton's... Hamilton's... Was that the sweet shop near BHS?

let me know if you ever see melon flavour Pocky anywhere, it's to die for but very rare

Will do! Even though it looks (on Wikipedia) and sounds very weird.

Sizzling Cinnamon is nowhere near as bad as the dark-brown-duo...

Yeah, probably - it was up near the entrance to Charter Place, about where Krispy Kreme is now.

It sounds revolting, I agree, but I'll always try odd flavours (as long as they avoid my no no foods!!), but OMG!!!!!!!!

Ugh. I don't rate Krispy Kreme, I like the idea of them, but they're like eating ultra sugary dust.

Fair enough. I had some passion fruit chocolate from Hotel Chocolat the other day (why yes this week has required/been randomly filled with much in the way of sweet foodstuffs) and it was AMAZING. I don't think many things should be mixed with chocolate (especially not orange and/or mint), but as usual passion fruit trumps life.

Only the plain ones are any good - but I can't be bothered with buying them. I won't even bother with the funny-flavoured ones if someone offers. I tried a couple of times but they were not good, and the taste hung round for ages.

Oh don't get me on Hotel Chocolat! I had something very nice from there once, but I've forgotten what it was now.

You can't beat a proper jam doughnut imo.

Smeg no. Sainsbury's 12p (well, last year... I need to check that out), tart raspberry jam, squidgy dough, crunchy caster-going-on-granulated sugar. Perfect.

PS. Strike the 500g, I meant 300g - I just went through prices in my head and realised I would have been getting an extremely good deal so had to check the packet. I don't want to appear like the Jelly Bean Queen.

Also my grammar sucks in the comment after this. But that possibly doesn't need another extra reply...

I think I can let you off both your transgressions. :)

Who needs epic? Glad you had a good day (and a Jenseny treat last week!)

It was very much a treat. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOGWITCH!!!

Happy belated Birthday !

Heh, it seems the older I get the less epic my birthdays get as well. Though I think a day off would be a wonderful gift ;)

Wishing you the best! Happy birthday!!!!!

You start dreading birthdays!

Thank you!

Ack. I missed your birthday. I had it in my head as being in February. I've been all discombobulated lately.

Hope the day was great, and got the year off to a good pop.

That's okay, I'm horrendous at birthday remembering real life and online.

It was okay, if not especially memorable.
