It wasn't a joke about the maths so much as it was about birthdays being non-events now. Ever since turning 18, we just haven't noticed them happening... just another day in the middle of term.

As to bath mats... Tin, did you mean the rubbery kind that you put in the bath or the toweley kind that you put outside it? Because if the former, then Squee is right and you're a fogey. Razz If the latter, everyone should really use them anyway...

The rubbery kind that you put in the tub. And also the towelly kind that goes outside. I've never associated the rubbery kind with old fogeys; we always had 'em when I was growing up, at any rate in the showers which doubled as bathtubs. We never had bathmats in the showers that were ONLY showers; you don't need them in there, because the floor is less angled and usually covered with tile rather than being a single piece of fiberglass. But in fiberglass tubs, you really do need one, since the floor is angled and just about as slippery as it can be.

Anyway, young people aren't immune to broken hips. :-

My birthday is right before term starts, so I never, ever have it during school. Actually, I had it in school this year for the first and only time, since it was the second day after arriving in Israel.

When I was little we would always be at the beach the firs week in august, so it meant that my first day back in school was generally on or a day or two away from my birthday. Then I had it during school, and now because they changed the schedule, it's before school starts.

My birthday varies, sometimes it falls in half term, other times it's just before.

Oh and I have something to add to my list of mistaken age. My dad wanted to buy his dad some Cohen brothers films for Fathers day, so we went to HMV. I get a student discount there so I went up to pay.

And the woman would not serve me because she didn't believe I was 19.

*Rolls eyes* She was pretty nice about it actually, some people are condescending when I tell them my age.

My birthday is always in term time, but I kinda like it. It means that I get to spend the day with my friends and the evening with my family. Best of both worlds!

I'm a few weeks short of 20. I'm not sure how old I look though. The subject's never really come up. I remember being one of the shortest people in fourth grade, and then some time around senior year I realized I was taller than 80% of the people around me (if I stood up straight), and I don't have the faintest clue when that happened? I'd just assumed I was small for most of my life, and wasn't paying attention.

I think I tend to get treated as younger than I am, but I think that's the way I carry myself rather than how I look...

My birthday is...er, was (divorce)...my parents' anniversary.

Being at the end of August means that the majority of my friends are gone on holiday or back to res by the time it rolls around. Last year though (for my nineteenth) we had my sister's bridal shower during the day and then my sibs, her then-fiance, two of our mutual friends from the shower and I went out karaoke-ing. It was a long, long day. Same weekend as the Canadian Fan Expo so it was a very crammed weekend.

Hmm...this reminds me of the birthday thread...I wonder if I still have the file somewhere; it'll need some serious updating.

I'm 17, but as I've been a member of the forum since I was 14, a lot of you veteran members have watched me grow up! Have I made ya'll proud?

It's funny until about 14/15 I was mistaken for older, but once I hit sixteen and was, in fact, finally allowed to wander free around the Mall of America, the volunteer 'mom patrol' (literally what they are called) decided I suddenly looked younger and started carding me. When I got my permit, now THAT was a happy day ^^

I believe my local Toys R Us sells bags of those playpen balls...I should buy a few bags and fill my room with awesomeness.
