Today is my 36th birthday. Last square number was 25 (wow, I was young at that time), and next one will be 49 (wow, I'll be old at that time).
Time goes on, and seems to speed up each year. My theory about this is that the fraction of our life that a year represents is smaller each year, hence this impression of acceleration. Other acceleration factors are children (they fill empty moments) and Apache (which fills the remaining empty moments) !
My gift should have been an Ixus V3 (aka Powershot S230) digital camera : a small digital jewel. But Canon is currently out of stock :-( If I can't have one in the coming weeks, I may change for a Powershot S45, although bigger.

Happy birthday, Sylvain!! I'm not far from you and I'll be following you. No matter how fast you run, I'll be right behind you ;)
In terms of cameras, I've got the S30 about a year ago. I've been quite satisfied with it, altough sometimes I wish it was smaller. S45 seems like a good upgrade of the S40.
Thanks, Ovidiu ! Time being different than space, this won't forbid us to meet around some good beer !
I wouldn't have hesitated if the S45 was smaller, but being able to have the camera in a (small) pocket seems to me a real benefit. The shoot-at-no-cost feature of digital cameras makes me think I'll want to have it with me very often.
Happy birthday Sylvain!
My age sounds more like a football match score where one team was much better than the other...
And I agree with the acceleration - the cool thing being that summers become closer from each other!
Don't really know you, but ... happy birthday !
