Happy Birthday Me!

Yay! It was my birthday yesterday, I'm now the grand old age of 20! 2 decades! A 5th of a century! OK that makes me feel old. So how did I celebrate? I had a party with Munkey, Monkey and Biff. Monkey is my mum's monkey from her dashboard. And Biff is a rabbit from my childhood (he has a secret power!) So on with the photos:The cake was baked and decorated by me! It's topped with maltesers, chocolate buttons, minstrals, mini stars and smarties
The banner was made by my brother. A bigger version is below
This is Monkey. He's like Munkey's younger cousin
Here's a close-up of my banner. The bloke with the surfboard is called Shadow you can find out more about him by clicking here

I can't guarantee how regular these updates will be. There will probably only happen when something interesting does! They will be more regular once the traveling starts after University but that's 3 years away!

Anyway. Took Munkey into work on Thursday for my Penultimate day at work YAY 6 weeks summer holiday! Only to have him Munkeynapped! I received my 1st ransom note along with a harrowing photocopy of Munkey: (Warning full size images are really HUGE)

So the hunt was on to find the munkeynapper before it was too late! Missing posters were produced and a reward offered:

A further ransom note was delivered in response to this poster:

And a clue was discovered in the form of the unfinished 2nd ransom note in the front office bin. This lead me to believe that the munkeynapper was a member of the office staff. With the noose closing on the culprit they decided to cut their losses and return Munkey.

So once home safe and sound Munkey decided to pig out on money nuts, beer and doughnuts! We've since discovered that the 3 in combination give Munkey the biggest hang-over imaginable! He now swears that he'll never drink again... Yeh right!

Everybody's got something to hide, except for me and my Munkey

Some background

If any of you have read my other blogs, you will know that a generally use them as mini-websites like this one or to inform people on a subject like here but from now on I am a reformed blogger. This blog will simply be for fun.

The dream

In a few weeks I start at Plymouth university here in the UK. However since I spent my gap year working I'm already looking to the end of my 3rd year. I want to take some time out of working and learning because so far that's all I've done for the last 14 years of my life. I've never been a great fan of going abroad for a holiday when there is so much left of this country that I've never seen.

So my dream is that at the end of uni I will by a VW campervan and tour Britain in it with my new companion:
Introducing Munkey!
About Munkey

Munkey is 2'6" tall. He enjoys watching YouTube videos and learning about long words, so if you have any for him please email a link (if it's a YouTube video) or a definition (if its a long word) to The best long words and videos will be featured in this blog. In his spare time Munkey also likes to dismantle servers so if you find any technical gitches on this site its probably because he's been monkeying (sorry) around with the server.About me

I'm a keen environmentalist and conservationist from Plymouth. I'm a member of BTCV, MV, V, RSPB, DWT, The Plymouth Music Zone and TEMPO. I love playing the Sax and listening to music (live and recorded). I'm a Linux user and I'm happy to stay that way!
