HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELIJAH!! 29 TODAY!!
Elijah has packed so much into his 29 years and the past year has been no exception. To celebrate I'm going to take a look back at some of the events he's been involved in since his last birthday and which we, his fans, have been able to share with him through the wonder of the internet.

28th January 2009:
Elijah's 28th birthday, and the owner of this Korean food outlet must have been delighted to see such a famous face in the queue!!
Lij obviously enjoyed that experience because a few days later he returned ....
New York Fashion Week:
When he attended this event last year, this was what he said to one of the many interviewers:
"I wouldn''t call myself a fashion junkie, I've always appreciated fashion and style, it's something that's always fascinated me, I don't know that I'm adept at it or know enough about it ... what's great about fashion and style is that it's ultimately an extension of who you are, it's a sense of expression, at its best and at its worst."

17 Feb Rodarte:
28 Feb Wondercon, San Francisco:
Elijah was there to promote '9':

23 September - Heaven Gala:
The Art of Elysium HEAVEN Gala Committee Dinner. I love the fact that he has chosen to be involved with this charity. As someone who spent long periods in hospital as a child, without the benefit of such an organisation as this, I can really appreciate how wonderful and how much needed the work of AofE is.
