Cheers, gents! Unfortunately I've had none of the above, no booze, cake or models. I'm making do by painting some eBob stuff I've had kicking around. I've treated myself to Band of Brothers on Blu-Ray so I'll watch that later on.
I second the wish of drunken models and cake for your birthday! Woo! Woo!

“conscribe te militem in legionibus. pervagare orbem terrarium. inveni terras externas. cognosce miros peregrines. eviscera eos” ̴ “Join the legions, see the world, travel to foreign parts, meet interesting and exotic people, and disembowel them.”
