My 28th Birthday

28th Birthday

Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday dear me,
Happy B…. Oh god, only two more years to 30.

Birthdays are strange. Everyone younger then you comments on how old you are but at the same time everyone older then you remark on your youth. As a result you are both young and old at the same time. Either way it means I am still too old to have Bobo the Clown at my birthday party. At least I can go out celebrating by having a few drinks with my friends and making a clown of myself.

    Happy happy birthday, Stu! I’m in the second group, so just let me say that I have underwear older than you.

    Have a wonderful day, and may you enjoy many more birthdays in good health.

    Happy Burfday, Stu! I don’t have underwear as old as you (eeewww!), but I do recall you calling me “mum” the first time we met. So I guess I’m the old one here.

    In any case, I hope you’re still young enough to party it up!

    Happy Birthday. 28 is a great age. I just turned 29 and 30 is now looming on the horizon.

    I like your blog and can relate to many of your experiences as I’m also invading Holland.

  11. zoe says:

    a belated happy birthday stu – i hope you had a great day. 28? i don’t even remember being 28 ….

  12. Melissa says:

    Happy Birthday!!! You ARE old…jeeze.

    Just kidding, you’re only…oh, 10 years older than I am :P

  13. Invader_Stu says:

    Ellen – Thanks and I hope you have washed them over the 28 years :p

    Ryan and ChickyBabe – Thanks :)

    Roxanne – Hehe. I remember that. It was because one of your posts made you sound like my mum :p And yes, I plan to go out partying tonight :)

    Rose – Now I feel guilty

    Suze in NL – We can attack the country from both sides. The invasion will go quicker that way :p

  14. Aisling says:

    GAH, Lissa! You beat me to it!!!! Yes yes, Stu, darling, you are a full DECADE older than me!!! No worries though, atleast you understand vinyl records. I for one, will never truly grasp vinyl records, because why use a big honking black disc that you can’t even dance to, when you can use a nice little silver one that doesn’t care if I leave it on my desk under a pile of magazines- it will still play because it loves me. Silly vinyl.

  15. Latina says:

    Happy b’day boy!…you still a baby..(if there is some comfort to it)- have all the fun in the world dude :)

  16. Invader_Stu says:

    I posted a little early so no one is late. My birthday is actually today so the hang over will most likely be tommrow :p

    Marycub – Wait till you get this side of 20 :p I still find it strange thinking of myself as in my late 20s.

    Matt – Don’t forget the walking sticks :p

    Tamara – In a good way I hope

    JaG – Thanks

    Zoe – And again I feel guilty :p

    Melissa – Bha! You young hooligans with your 50 cent and rap music.

  17. Tenakalaz says:

    Happy Birthday mate, will have to go out and get you drunk when you get back to Holland.

  18. Invader_Stu says:

    Tenakalaz – I look forward to it if I survive tonight :p

  19. Chris says:

    I have 3 more years to 30… I hate this, I don’t wanna get old Jesus Christ

  20. Matt says:

    Belated happy birthday Stu,

    Hope you survived your night out!

  21. Jodie says:

    Happy birthday to Stu
    Stuck his head down the loo
    To upchuck his alcahol…
    and he smells like it too ;)

    Happy belated birthday Stu!!
    Sorry I couldn’t wish you well yesterday but VallyP and I were over in the UK for the day.
    Hope you had a great night out!!!

    Thanks for your comments on the pictures too.

    I’d sing happy birthday in dutch but damn and blast i’ve forgotten all the dutch i ever knew (which wasn’t a whole lot!)…

  23. Invader_Stu says:

    Shruti – Thanks. Luckily my hangover is not too bad this morning

    Aisling – I’m going to cry in a corner now about my age…

    Latina – …thanks. That makes me feel better :)

    Chris – I’m starting to think it might not be so bad…. I hope

  24. BlondebutBright says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! So we’re both Capricorns. And I’m a whole year older than you. You’re so young (sigh).

  25. vallyP says:

    Sorry for being so late Stu, but now I can wish you happy Birthday and Happy New year together. Talk about going Dutch and doing two for the price of one…lol! Hope you have/had a great one xx

  26. Invader_Stu says:

    Jodie – Thanks. I hope you had a good time in the UK. I’m still there, back to Holland on Tuesday.

    marycub – I wouldn’t know where to start myself

    BlondebutBright – One year is not that much of a gap

  27. Invader_Stu says:

    vallyP – That’s ok but where is my present? :p

  28. tenakalaz says:

    was just wondering why you can’t have Bobo the clown ?? surely you have more right at 28 than at 6 :)

    And don’t worry about hitting 30 stu, you will just realise that you have been wasting your life and have a small crisis, then you will go back to normal and forget about it all till you hit 31 hahaha :)

  29. Invader_Stu says:

    and what happens at 33 old man? :p
