And boy did we bash it! The partying was non-stop this weekend and celebrations arose at every level. There were
And Happy Families.
All in all a great birthday party. I scored on the loot this year as well.
From my twin bro: More Heroscape stuff! The best is the Lexan map. We used it this weekend and it adds so much more to the board-building process. Gives me more to work with.
From the wife: A sweet new laptop-carrying backpack, new khaki pants, and pajama pants. Always the practical, essential gifts. (She knows I'll never buy them for myself, even though I need them).
From myself: Just like any other self-respecting husband, I had to spend money on myself for my birthday. So using my REI dividend, I picked up an ultimate frisbee and a Kleen Kanteen, for all that healthy livin'. (Thanks Snows for the tip.) I also purchased some comic books....yes, comic books...that I've been craving for a while.
From the parents: Cold, hard cash! And a shirt!
Not. too. shabby.
Here's a conversation Austin and I had about our 27th birthday...
Austin: happy birthday foo
me: happy birthday yourself
way to be 27
Austin: crazy huh
i feel so old!
me: i only feel kinda old. i still love kid stuff so much, that it's hard to feel old
like comic books, video games, and candy
Austin: that's true ;)
although I feel like a bum since I am 27 and still in school....
with no career and no house
And that pretty much sums up how I felt about the big 2-7.
