birthdays, cake and the boosh

So yesterday was my youngest brothers 18th birthday and it was the first time we met his girlfriend, she is lovely. It was a really wonderful day, we headed into central london and watched "the tree of life" it was the weirdest film i have ever seen, the cinematography was pretty amazing, when i left the cinema it made me feel like my life was a film/dream, (i did bump into Julian Barratt of the mighty boosh in urban outfitters on the seven dials, he practically penned me in the corner of the house-ware section until i turned around and he ran away.) when we rushed past all the people up in Trafalgar square at the olympic celebration it felt like a dream very strange feeling. We had planned to go for a meal, we couldn't decide on a restaurant so my mum and dad made a little buffet and cake at home it was pretty wonderful. I ate so much cake last night that i have decided to put my body through a month detox, my birthday is next month so that means no chocolate, fizzy drink, meat or sugar, wish me luck.
