PSA  
I'm not quite sure why Livejournal thinks it is my birthday today since in previous years it has been well aware that actually my birthday is not until Saturday.

Birthday wishes gratefully accepted, of course, just mildly embarrassing that they are premature.

Will be fiddling settings shortly.

EDIT: Nope, as far as I can tell LJ believes my birthday is the 24th. Perhaps it thinks today is the 24th?

Hope you have a nice birthday on Saturday. Why not just have from now until Saturday as an extended birthday? ;-)

Also on Saturday, it will be 21 years since Freddie Mercury died. How time flies!

I'm very tempted. I'm demostrating lego robots to school kids today - after that I may feel I need a lie down for a few days...

Oooh, hope the lego robots goes well. Have fun!

They went pretty well, not as I'd expected, but I just went with what interested the kids and that seemed to work.

It has been decreed that you and Fifi are like the queen - you shall have two birthdays. Hers will feature soldiers with big guns; YMMV!

So far the plan for Saturday involves Star Wars, Popcorn and steak.

Today, not so much.

Oh, and good luck with the robots.

I have just fiddled with a computing colleague's Rapberry Pi. I told her about your robots. She doesn't have robots!

She can get an additional board called the piFace from Manchester which will allow her to attach the wheels (well engines) of her choice to the Raspberry Pi. There seems to be a small industry in buying unloved remote control toys from car boot sales and then writing them up to Raspberry Pis.

Happy birthday in advance!

Nope, it's not you, lj seems to believe that today is the 24th, since I've just had three lj messages telling me it's your birthday, Fi's birthday, and another friend's birthday today, when I know that every single one of them isn't until Saturday!

Lj calendar!fail? :-)

Fred has suggested LJ is getting its on-the-day and two-days-in-advance notices mixed up. Maybe on Saturday you'll be informed it's my birthday on Monday!!

Thanks!

So if LJ thinks your birthday's today, what has it done with my birthday? LJ has stolen my birthday! Although, on the plus side, I guess it means I can stay at my present age forever more. :-)

There is a theory that LJ has the "two days to go" and "birthday TODAY" notifications the wrong way around (I didn't even know there was this multiplicity of notifications). So maybe LJ hasn't stolen your birthday but simply moved it to Sunday...

Hee! It's quite funny really! I'm just starting early with the celebrations *g* I do feel bad saying it's not today :)

I plan steak and popcorn also! I can soon add Star Wars! Have a lovely day when it comes :D
louisedennislouisedennis on November 22nd, 2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
B is somewhere on the M6 at the moment so I'm not feeling all that celebratory. But tomorrow looks like it might be fun since it is the "Year 5 Mum's Night Out".
fififolle: Banlieue13 - Damien loves Leitofififolle on November 22nd, 2012 07:22 pm (UTC)
Oh my! I hope that's lots of fun :D Rather a nice idea.
Miserable night, I hope B is home soon safe and dry.

Have a good birthday today or Saturday or even better, both. I was somewhat confused by the notification ;)
louisedennislouisedennis on November 23rd, 2012 09:04 am (UTC)
I'm interested to see what happens tomorrow in terms of notifications, it must be said!!
the little creepnyarbaggytep on November 24th, 2012 12:24 pm (UTC)
Happy Birthday!
