Happy Birthday, Haruka!

Haruka turns an impressively adult sounding 18 today (21st). Which means that she still can't vote, or (legally) drink, but at least she can drive a car now!
Whenever I think about them getting older, I think back to that interview where they jokingly suggested that once they started to hit the late teens, they won't be able to play any of their early, more juvenile songs live anymore.
While I hope that isn't true, I can certainly see Haruka being slightly wary of singing a song with a line that mentions her being 16. If the first album was about the ups and downs of being a kid during the summer, and the second album (and arguably Tip Taps Tip and Twinkle Star) about the ups and downs of growing up, it makes you wonder where they'll take the next one.

Update: Haruka posted about it to both her Sony and Buzz Room blogs (a blog that has become terribly neglected of late since the Sony one came into fruition), showing that she got flowers from MTV and cake from Tokyo FM. It's nice to know they're treating her right!

Clearly the next album will be about Morgage repayments and Investment trusts.

Let's hope they'll never get to "kids just aren't the same these days."

Well, she can drink in Japan, which I think is probably the only place she would be drinking...

Unless OL working in Aparrel is code word for "pop singing 18 year old."
