I turned 26 a few days ago. Hurrah for me! I performed the feat of getting older. And in keeping with that,I had a pretty sedate celebration. Had dinner with three friends at Udupi, an Indian restaurant with cuisine from the region of the same name, and went to a bar and two of us had one beer. And we were all home by 10:30. My life isn't really set up to have big parties anymore, and I don't know enough people here to actually fill a party.
Because I didn't really want anything for my birthday besides unattainable purchases that no one can reasonably expect to be purchased by someone else, I decided it was opposite day, and made presents for most, and eventually (hopefully) all of my friends. My initial intent was to do them all in a sea creature them, but then I found out that painting octopi is hard, what with all those tentacles, and that I'm far better at painting insects.
Let me know if you're interested in how I made them, and I will post a tutorial of some sort.
