The Annual Birthday Speech

I have managed to survive for another year. Still on the rapidly ascending (descending?) road to Thirty.

As has been the norm for the past six or seven years, whenever my birthday approaches I hear that ticking sound in my head - as if my biological clock gets louder every time or something. I think it's something to do with that. Again, at this time I think about the things that I thought I'd be well on my way to achieving - house, car, wife, family. Those things are still specks on the horizon for me, I think, but I think I'm a little closer to them. Besides, I still have a job at least right?

I'm a step closer to biting the proverbial bullet and buying a new PC before I delve deeper into Upgrade Hell.Vendors in Bermuda put large mark-ups on PCs and PC equipment here but it's not yet worth the hassle of going abroad and bringing one back from the US or Canada - and I can't be bothered to deal with Customs hassle with online ordering just yet.

Survivor has ended (satisfactory), the Apprentice has ended (not quite as satisfactory), and The Amazing Race is in full swing (although with a batch of hateful characters already). Not much else on TV so heck.
