birthday party update

The party was last night. Thanks to too much inebriation and too little sleep, this won't be the huge update that it deserves to be, but I wanted to jot down a few thoughts before collapsing into bed.

The party was a delight. unixd0rk shared his home and lilostitch made a mountain of food. Preparations felt very down-to-the-wire, but somehow it all came together (with the help of many friends, including n0thingman and Shane).

I got to see Hipster again for the first time in just about forever, and BFunk and Monica seemed to hit it off smashingly ... Diana enjoyed the meeting of new people, and anjeelou ... well, I hope you had fun, and, you know, made it to work in more or less one piece.

I was bummed that only one person from work came, but others sent gifts and well-wishes. Actually, I got a ton of gifts ... and n0thingman, you always give the most fun things. Thanks to you, and, well, gosh ... thanks to everyone. To anjeelou, to martinivixen ... to unixd0rk for playing the host, to lilostitch for taking the reigns and organizing the damn thing.

Tomorrow's my actual birthday. I worry it will be a bit of a let down after this weekend, but hey ... yea, whatever. Thirty five. Holy shit.

OK. Good night, y'all.

    The morning news reminded me that it's now been a decade since this happened.
