So, as you know, I'm in the final stages of my Masters thesis. One thing that gets me through this whole debacle is the wonderful 1980s series, Magnum PI. Barely a day goes by without me returning to an episode and revelling in the wonder that is Thomas Sullivan Magnum. Today, after I emailed off the thesis for final edits, I switch on Magnum to find in this exact episode he says his birthday is 8 August. That's today!
I'm super excited and have to dress in celebration style. Magnum has the jungle bird shirt, so I'm doing my Ken Done fish skirt. (Plus it pays tribute to Doc's dead friend, and Meg's love of kissing fishes - check here (comments) to see what I mean).
There will be many more references to Magnum to come, but in the meantime, I'm off to celebrate!
