    Well, this was unexpected, since I never pay attention to post count in serial threads. It's a nice surprise, though, and for me it is indeed one more trip around the Sun: My 54th, actually.

    Maybe some year we'll all get to go somewhere else instead of around and around and around... but in the meantime, it's not a bad planet overall.

    Pass the cake. :p

    Crushing Vincour's dreams and hopes for such a generic thread title?

    That's evil!

    Which means I like it.

    @Vincour deserves every bit of it. His thread title was clearly a trap. In a thread titled "It's good to be the moderator" someone slightly overzealous in their interpretation of the letter of the rules could call every response PDMA.

    Thanks, Broken Erika. :)


    (BTW, folks, this is a general Raves thread if anyone wants to post about things other than my birthday - I appreciate the good wishes and cat pictures, but this thread isn't only for me)

    It so happens that the one person to whom I don't mind giving a new thread got it by accident. Conglaturation, Valka-san!

    And happy belated birthday!

    Finished yet another Norway hiking video! Only a couple more to go



    This is a rough version that I may or may not put through another round of editing, depending on feedback.

    Did this hike almost 2 years ago now.. Wow time flies! I had a sunny day in Hellesylt Norway with nothing planned, so I got a map of local area hikes, and decided to see how far I could make it on the hardest/longest one. Made it all the way to the top!
