A few days ago I celebrated a birthday. I wasn't expecting it to be any better then the year before where I spent it on a plane by myself coming back up north. I also spent 5 extra hours in the Iqaluit airport that day. But this year was completely different. First of all Christina was making me dinner AND a cake, AND then all these people came out of the closet. I was completely fooled, I had no idea that I was getting a surprise party, my first ever! I don't know why anyone hasn't tried it in the past because I am terribly gullible. If there is an entire case of pop missing from the sealift room? Oh that's just Nathan drinking a lot of pop no party planning here. The van parked outside of Christina's place, that's different but hey I'm sure there is a good reason and then BAM there is party, and it's a surprise! It was so fantastic and I am terribly lucky to have people that are willing to share their food and company with me.
This is my cheesy portrait pose. It helps get rid of the chin fat.
This is also something amazing that happened on my birthday, massive icebergs from the bay breaking up. The really big ones only lasted a day and that day was my birthday, so that must mean they were my icebergs! They were massive and beautiful and ever so incredible. Just after the surprise party, a flock of us photographers migrated down to the beach to shoot the bergs at low tide. I guess I don't have to worry about the ice being too "thin" when I'm out snowmobiling next year. It was a good visual example, me vs. the iceberg. Hey I don't feel so fat anymore!
