    :oops:

    29. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
    I had the best birthday party ever with my friend and ally Pulsarskate jetting into town, just for me! THEN ... I celebrated with my family in Perth, the first time I'd ever flown 'home' for the holidays, which was weird. But not as weird as seeing everyone try and sing singstar at the Messi (I decided to call my apartment Messi ... in homage to Jess and the fact that the place isn't, in fact, messy :p ). I turned a quarter of a century old.

    [:D] Skatey rawks!
