Oddly, there's been no mention of cake ...

Thanks, Kai, Thrice and Brother Kou! You’ve outdone yourself in the bakery department this time, Kou. Bravo!

I also like that there are only fifteen candles...

Wow. I had no idea cloaks were popular here.

A friend of mine had a cape w/hood that he picked up at a Renaissance Faire. It was hella fun to wear, but definitely made ya stand out... Even at Wal-Mart.

Dunno if yours will be that overdone or more subtle. Either way, I say, go nuts and have fun while ya can!
A few minutes on t'internet and I found something that looks a bit like what I'm getting (though I have no intention to look like a cleric). It should be a bit like this, but with a smaller collar that doesn't fold over, and maybe a second layer that comes down to a bit below my chest. The awesomeness would stop about half way down my shins. Similar colour too. I'd've ideally wanted a much brighter and richer blue, but that would have really stood out, so I'm going with navy blue and having the inside be a brighter blue as that'll be less seen.

If anyone complains you can just walk away misteriously.
Indeed. It's nice that I kind of have the figure for that. I can also walk whilst keeping my torso almost completely level, so I can almost glide away - does look rather weird (and very unlike gliding) without a cloak though [:)] .

Yes! Another advocate of good retro-fashion. [:D]

If you feel comfortable with what you're wearing, the anxiety will fade like white noise. [;)]
Indeed - though I'm taking retro back a few more centuries than most. I imagine I won't really enjoy the first few days of it as I can get really paranoid when I'm by myself in public, but if I can push through that then it'll be plain sailing from then on.

Happy Birthday, DesEsseintes!

Well, I'm home, but because of the snowfall in Philly today, my flight got delayed 4 hours. In the end, I'm just glad it wasn't cancelled.

I welcome this new addition! Emojis offer a greater variation of facial expressions that the forum's smilies are just missing sometimes! And I can post these in case I'd ever feel the need to do it: 🍕👅🐧

Oh, that makes sense. I was looking under the "smilies" that are off to the side when I make a post.

I approve of emoji! 💁🏼


...I do not, however, approve of the fact that the forum software replaces the characters with images, instead of just using the Unicode characters I'm already typing into the text. 🤦🏼‍♀️🙅🏼

All this time I thought I had the cot-caught merger but it turns out I maintain the distinction and just pronounce cot and caught the same! [xD] Guess I'm in some weird in between stage.

When they are merged... what vowel is used? (Cuz they are distinct for me.)
Also, Shimo, my dude, you need an avatar. (And I might be able to help!)

Ah, well, no thank you. I have seen the thread in question, but I'm just not really interested. Nothing personal, of course. I'll let you know if I ever change my mind, though.
