27!!! How did that happen?

I am very well aware that age is just a number. I am also very aware that you are as young as you feel. I am also aware that the more saucy of you out there believe that you are as young as the man you feel - as this suits my needs most I think I will go with this line of thought for a while.

Now 27.

What do we know about 27?

Well the number itself is the number that follows 26 and precedes 28. Simple. Nothing too horrid there.
But the age, well that is a different story.
Now I am reaching the territory of  "Oh! Nearly 30!" -say this to me and I may kick you. Be warned.
And let's not forget "So! Will we be getting a big day out of you soon? You're pushing on!" - again, say it at your peril.
But surely there has to be something MEGA that came out of this dismal number.
So I went exploring.
And at first the results weren't exactly heartwarming. 

I learned that these people died aged 27.





 
That really wasn't a good start...
But then I remembered...
There is a song I really like by the band Biffy Clyro called... you guessed it! 27
And in Bingo
 the number 27 is called GATEWAY TO HEAVEN

There are other cool facts too...

There are 27 moons that orbit Uranus
There are 27 letters in the Hebrew alphabet

So does anyone have any cool facts about 27?
I would love to know them.

  3. 27 is a perfect cube! 3 x 3 x 3

    Also, 27 cubed (so 27 x 27 x 27) is 19,683. 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 + 3 = 27!

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order)
1)Read the BBC top 100 books
2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights)
3)Go zorbing
4)Learn a new language
5)Visit the Sistine Chapel
6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder)
7)Visit Tiffani in Utah
8)Parachute Jump with Agata

9)Raise money for charity
10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.)
11)Sell something I've created
12) Publish somet…

Ah November. You have returned.

I woke up this morning with a dullness in my heart that I normally don't have in the morning.
On my mornings allocated to sleep in I resemble a sloth blissfully unaware of life in a cocoon, but on a normal morning I wake up with a bit of a bounce. I start my day with a bit of shower time karaoke. I dance around the bedroom as I get dressed for the day. I have a great time. ( Jeez, as I write this I suddenly appreciate Stuart's morning patience a little bit more! Ha!)  Anyway, the point being, despite a very early bed time last night I woke up a wee bit deflated.

Then I remembered  that my old nemesis November has returned.
I did a quick calculation. Marguerite would be 32 next week.
32! Being 32 was one of my favourite times.
Another quick calculation, Marguerite will be gone 15 years this month. 15 years. 2 more years and she will be gone as long as she was with us.
Every November is a little bit easier than the last. Of course it is. Time is a wonderful healer.
But every cal…

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh.
I think you should know.
I love it truly.
Every day I feel more settled.
Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper.
I really am content.
So content that I sing. Poorly.
I should apologise for that.I really like my new job.
Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information.
Then it digests and I feel capable again.
It is nice to use my brain again.
It does help that I have wonderful colleagues.
They make it easy to love the job.
I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks.
Then I finish my training.
After that... who knows?Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat.
It bores me terribly but the boy loves it,
so I pretend.
I pretend quite well.
I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal.
I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way.
I wish I could meet them soober than October.
Hurry up October!
I should mention that we're popping over in October.
Pints? Anyone?Lastly,
I received an amazing gift at the weekend.
A tea gift box!
I love …
