Older And More Awesomer
My birthday was Oct. 21st. I'm a birthday brat. I love love love celebrating the day my mother pushed me out into the world .
We started my birthday week off at my parent's house for dinner this past Saturday. Shepherd's pie and chocolate cream pie. Our friend Lynch joined us. I got some pretty kick ass presents too: money, new sheets for our new bedroom (Sexybeast's ex had horrible taste), wall stickie art (big decorative sticker-like doodads) and mom took some of my many postcards I have collected and framed a few of them. And a I won a 2 dollar scratch off. Wooty woo!
And just when you think it couldn't get anymore awesomer, on the 21st we had our big staff meeting and I brought cupcakes that mom made special for me: chocolate cherry, chocolate chip & carrot cake. And that evening we went to Wolff's Biergarten for fantastic German food and my free birthday beer in a glass boot. 3 litres of Oktoberfest. My lovely dovely friend AlbanyJane of http://albanyeats.blogspot.com and her very nice husband AlbanyJohn came a-callin'. Yeah, blogger solidarity!! There is mac n' cheese in yr future! And go check out her blog, awesome stuff, y'all. And Senor Lynch dropped by and an old dear friend, Aaron. I had some nummy knockwurst, red cabbage (instead of farty sauerkraut) and German smashed potatoes. DROOL DROOL DROOL. Cash only, peeps. And so worth it too.
During the course of drinking my boot, I got pretty hammered. I ate some free spaetzel w/ gravy. And 3/4 of the way through, I threw in the boot. Not literally, there's a $40 deposit fee. And unfortunately, as we approached the final miles to our new home, I booted on the door of Sexybeast's truck. He was not happy!
All in all, 34 is gonna be a good year. Thanks to all the wishes and to my friends that helped me party down on my special day.
