Happy Birthday to me

So today was my 25th birthday. Not a big deal really, but still a little disconcerning when I really start to think about it. However i am going to ignore those thoughts for now and just let you know how my weekend was.

Last night was my Birthday party of sorts. Had a couple close friends over to my place for some predrinking fun and games and then headed down to Hugos, a local bar, whose last night in existence was yesterday. So we headed down early to assure us getting in. Once there we had a really good time. Along with people I were expecting for my birthday were some other welcome guests. A couple people I use to work with, who i hadn’t seen in a couple years. And Coral, Caitlin and Allie were there as well. Twas a fun night all in all.

Today was my actual birthday. Slept in till 11, woke up with a really bad hangover headache got rid of that in a couple hours and cleaned up the mess that was my living room. Then we made up a nice hearty breakfast and played some Rockband 2 and watched the last couple episodes of South Park. Tonight was dinner at my with Ashley, my mom, dad, sister and brother in law. Watched the baseball game for a bit and then headed home. WELCOME TO RIGHT NOW! For the remainder of the night I am going to just chill in a quite house with Ashley as the guys are out playing D&D tonight.

Thanks to everyone that made my birthday weekend a great success!! Same time next year?


I’m trying, I really am.

You know when i started this thing i thought it would be easy to keep this updated. I mean I was doing a good job for a while there and all I had to do was take a picture of something that caught my attention and comment on it, but I found as I did that more and more I felt no satisfaction out of it. I mean whats the point in updating something that you get no sense of accomplishment out of. So I have made a judgement call today, i am going to try and do a iPhone update 1 or 2 times a week and at least 1 or 2 regular updates. Something that a friend of mine does on her blog is something called “Friday Five” It goes like this:

1. I really wish I could stop paying attention to the US election. I mean it’s one thing to watch the daily show every night, but I constantly find myself spending far to much time on CNN or MSNBC or one of those other 24 hour news channels. I am starting to have a hard time remembering what these people talked about when there wasn’t a huge election in progress.

2. My camera has been in for a repair for 3 weeks now. I called futureshop but they aren’t 100% sure when its going to be ready to go, and its annoying me cause I really want to get out and take pictures.

3. The hotel I stayed at in Seattle a couple months ago is finally sending me a refund for one night of my stay as i had to deal with bed bugs 2/4 nights and very little was really done about it at the time. I hope they know if they had just dealt with the issue at the time properly they would have saved themselfs 200.00 dolllars.

4. I really need to start eating better.

5. This weekend is my birthday weekend. I am turning the big 25. While some people I know seemed to have a hard time with that age I could care less really. I just find myself rather blah about the whole birthday thing this year. I am going out with everyone to Hugos (I think) on Saturday and Ashley brought back a nice box of cigars from Cuba which we can share around. Now that the work week is over I am starting to get a bit more excited.

So thats the Friday Five, I apologize Coral if I jacked your idea. But I always enjoying reading it.

Anyways, thats it from me for today. Check back Sunday night, I promise I will have another update between now and then.

Something else

So this past summer has been awesome. Great weather and good holidays. But the simple fact is fall is far and away the best season of the year. It not so damn warm anymore, but it’s also not as cold as winter. Their is lots of rain (like today) and the smell is fantastic. Most people give me funny looks when I tell them this but I have cone to accept it.

What is your fav. Season? And why?
