My birthday is more or less exactly in the middle of august if you didn't already know.
Anyone got any SENSIBLE, COOL, FUN ideas for my party?
One Direction are my life. <3

Parties should never be sensible. How about good old Laserquest?

I misread that at first. I thought you were suggesting a Larsenesque party. But it might rain outside.

No but if I just said "Any party ideas?", knowing you lot, most of you would say "Ooh I know! A teletubbies party!" or something.
Laserquest is too boyish.

I have the unfortunate affliction of being a boy, it tends to skew my responses :) Okay then, how about a Barbie and make-up party?

NO WAY! I mean, firstly, Barbies are for 5 year olds. Secondly, make up is cool and I like it, but who'd want to spend a whole day doing make up? ... No one!

You obviously need to define your criteria more clearly!Okay then, if you're going for more teenage pursuits, maybe you should steal some booze and spend the day (or ten minutes) getting very drunk. I'm sure you're old enough for that.

No i'm not old enough and that's not a sensible idea, and you know it. Anyway I have tried a sip of wine at home and it stinks and I hate the taste!
I was thinking going to the cinema, maybe the Odeon, but i'd need to wait for ages to decide what i'm watching because every week there are different movies on.
Any good ideas, apart from the cinema, now that you know what sort of thing I want?
One Direction are my life. <3

Didn't think we were still doing this thread, but yes, many happy returns to both Charlie Reams and Nick Hewer. :D

I expect that Charlie would also have appreciated a kiss from Rachel, as Nick did on Countdown today. ;)

An interesting task (for those of you that have the time or inclination) would be to make a calendar of countdowner's or forumites birthdays, I am December 7th if anyone wants to do it, I know that I can't be bothered too though :D :)

I would do this, but it would take a year to get it all off c4c and not everyone's on that anyway.

Yeah, but he wants to see it as a calendar so you can see stuff in advance rather than just on the day.
