Just celebrated my birthday with an ‘Alice in Charlaland’ party. Also my dear friend, who happens to be the producer of charlatan clinic was also turning a year older, so we celebrated together in costume, under the guise of the Red Queen (myself) and the White Queen (Amanda). What a night. Mad Hatters, Alice, White rabbit, Twiddledee, Humpty Dumpty, Cheshire cat, Lily, Jabberwocky, Caterpillar and a few other random characters including bananas and other superheroes. Lots of cupcakes and unusual food, crazy games, makeshift mirrors and funny behaviours. I have to admit, I feel different. Reflective albeit happy with my existence. Some of my friends were texting saying ‘welcome to the 40 club’! Yeah. The rat. Sagittarius. Bold. Independent. Watch out 2013.
