In honour of my birthday, which was on Tuesday, here's a song by the Phoenix Foundation.
The guitar and vocal are very characteristic of the slightly alternative pop music produced in New Zealand. And the video is great – lots of odd goings-on on a beautiful Wellington beach.
My birthday was most pleasant. It was lovely to have a family-filled birthday after 10 years away. I had a grown-up girls' lunch – no Petra, good food, and even a little wine. It's been so long since I've had anything to drink that a few sips was all I needed to feel a bit tipsy. And we all had dinner at my mum's place. I got to see a cousin I haven't seen for seven or eight years and hang out with all my other Dunedin rellies.
