That’s right! Another year has gone by, and yet again it is that national holiday, the Buried Editor’s Birthday. For those of you who are new, it’s a day of great feasting and celebration and occasionaly fireworks. In France they call it Bastille Day (Bastille must be French for Buried Editor), and for some reason have got the date wrong by two days. But we shall forgive them. All is forgiven on Buried Editor Birthday, especially this year. For this is a special birthday year. I’m not going to say how old I am, merely that it ends in a -0.

So, have a lovely, cupcake filled day. Hopefully the parades haven’t been to much of an inconvenience on your way to the park, or shopping, or heaven forbid, work.
