Prime

Today I come into my prime. Well, 43 is a prime number anyway. The 43rd element in the periodic table is technetium. How appropriate is that? Having said that, it does have an unstable nature! One of my favourite albums, The Dark Side Of The Moon, is exactly 43 minutes long.

Searching on "43" on the internet revealed a useful page about web design. Fin, you might be able to use some of the advice given there (e.g. #27).

Right, that's enough rambling. Time to o.d. on coffee...

Have a pint! It's your birthday after all.

Have you got cake? You have to have cake on your birthday, preferably with candles to blow out and make a wish!

Happy birthday!!

I love Dark side of the moon!

Yes you have to make a wish!

Captain Black said...

Annie - Thank U. In fact Ive had sevral pints! He he.

Casdok - There is no dark side of the mon really. As a matter of fact it's all dark!

Hope you're hangover free, now you're 43 and 1 day old:-)

Captain Black said...

Groan. Hangover still here at 12:30 and after two cups of coffee :o(

I've just worked out that my age is 21 (in base 21).

Belated birthday greetings :)

Mine's upcoming, and although it's a prime number I fear I'm definitely past my prime :(

In a periodic table of the elements, I'll be Rhodium.

Captain Black said...

Thanks Karen.
I feel I should point out that the atomic number for rhodium is divisible by five and therefore not a prime number.

Doh!

Denise said...

Happy birthday for last Monday!

See you Wednesday, can't make the wannabe chatroom on Sunday as am going shopping.... not my favourite occupation.

Annieye said...

Captain - you're tagged.

I got cut off from the Chatroom this morning when Broadband went down again. Didn't come back on till gone three.

Speak soon.

Did you get the message in chatroom about Denise not being able to come on Wednesday after all?

Captain Black said...

I'm tagged for what, exactly? Is that some kind of ASBO?

Yeah. Shame about scribbler not coming.

Sounds like your ISP needs a visit from NDH and her pointy stick!

Denise said...

Urm, think there's a bit of confusion here. I asked Annie to say I couldn't make Sunday morning, I'm definitely coming on Wednesday! Move me back to the Who's coming column!

Captain Black said...

Sorry about that Denise. You're back on the list again.

Also I incorrectly called you "scribbler" who is, of course, Linda.

Sometimes I think I need to reboot my head.

Annieye said...

Me too, Captain. I got the wrong end of the pointy stick. Sorry Denise!

Just a quick thank you for all your hard work in arranging the wannabe lunch. I enjoyed it so much.
