Runt of the family
My sister only agrees to take photos with me when she’s wearing heels. That way she get’s to look taller than me. Still, we were both dressed up for the party tonight so we did indeed look good. Even if we were of equal height for once. Surprisingly the only thing we have in common in our appearance is non natural hair colours. I’m ginger and she’s blonde, instead of our hereditary brown. Oh well, this has been a pointless ramble in my life.
The Last Birthday Post
The aftermath of a confetti and glitter cannon.
So, my nineteenth is over, it’s done. This shall be my last post about it! But I just thought I’d tell you how it ended up. I had kind of resigned myself to a quiet day and as such, I really expected nothing. I think that’s what made it even more special when my friends showed up with cake and sweets and cards and presents. And because I know the three women involved tend to take a gander at my tumblr from time to time, thank you guys so much. I don’t think you have any idea how much it means to me, to have such a great birthday so far from home.
The best gifts I got were a confetti cannon (which detonated with a scary amount of force just above my head), a flaming lantern and a comic book birthday card.
Apparently my alter ego is glitter man, who knew? I really love this comic book so much, it recounts my first year of college as the super hero “Glitter Man”. It’s brilliant, it’s so thoughtful.
I finished up my night by launching a fire lantern into the sky. It was a good way to end it all, watching the blazing fire burning through the night.
Glowsticks, Glitter and Paint! I’m ready for tonight! (Taken with instagram)
A night in the life of Shane and his good friend vodka.
I don’t even know what last night was. I didn’t drink a huge amount and yet I got ridiculously drunk. I can barely remember anything from last night either. It’s all a blur. I’m not liking some of the stories I hear either. I also have a bite mark on my arm. So I think I shall refrain from alcohol for a little while.
Apparently I’m a slutty drunk too, I don’t remember enough to know for sure.
Another zombie photo from the other night. Sure why the hell not!
My Cousins 21st
I have just returned from my cousins 21st birthday party. It was a brilliant night, I haven’t seen some of my cousins in years. But I was a bit apprehensive before going. Two of my cousins going knew that I was gay, one of them is gay himself. My parents were going to be there too. While I do trust my cousins, alcohol tends to loosen tongues.
But the night was a good one. I was well aware that both of these cousins wanted to take me aside and discuss the subject. But I danced around it as best I could. Both of them however did say how they loved me so much, and that I was their favorite cousin (there are fifty of us).
My gay cousin is unique. He moved to Scotland when I was 8, before he came out as gay so I haven’t seen him in years. It was strange to meet him again, he wasn’t really what I expected. He is very proud of himself and who he is, so I admire him for that. But he just seems a bit strange. He’s family so I love him, but he wasn’t what I had anticipated. He was loud and pretty vulgar. Maybe I just overhyped him in my head. Maybe it was just the alcohol and he isn’t actually like that. Who knows? He is an alcoholic though, I guess, I just expected more from my gay elder.
I recorded this when I got home after my night out.
