I am here because today is a special day and I felt I couldn't let such an auspicious occasion go unmarked.
If you're on the other side of the pond from me, I know what you're thinking - Happy Tax Day, right??
Hooray! Tax!! Happy, happy day. Hope it's a jolly one for ya ;o)
..... although actually, there was something else. Another reason why I logged on. It is also my birthday today. (Thought I'd make it all small as I don't like to make a fuss. And I wouldn't want to tread on the toes of any hardcore celebrations over the tax thing. )
I share a birthday with some groovy people, like Leonardo da Vinci, which is quite fun. But also some less-then-groovy people (depending on your point of view, I suppose), like Jeffrey Archer. Also, some pretty sucky stuff happened - like the sinking of the Titanic, f'rinstance. But nevertheless, I think it's a super day for a birthday.
Today I turn 25. Although technically - technically - I'm still a sprightly 24 until about half nine this evening. Stickler for the details, me. I read some very interesting things about the number 25 here. Sadly, I understood very few of the Maths ones... but I was glad to learn that 25 is the atomic number for manganese. That little piece of trivia will no doubt come in mighty handy one of these days.
Anyhoo, now I've learned all that stuff I never needed to know about the number 25, and suitably marked the tax day (woo! tax!), I'd better step away from the Internet and return to work.
Until next time, VCxx
