Happy Birthday to me

Today is a good day. Today is my birthday.
I have many many people that love and care about me. It feels good to be special for a day, I must admit.
I was first surprised when Richard made me a special birthfast, that is breakfast and birthday combined by the way. He made me eggs and toast but the egg was in the middle of the toast. I'm sure this has a name, but I don't know what it is. I should have taken a photo but I didn't.
Then I opened presents, which were the Indiana Jones DVD set - awesome and I can't believe we didn't have that yet and the bestest sweater shaver in the world. I might have accidentally unravelled half my sweather today by using it but damn, it sure got the little balls off.
this is pretty much what it looks like:

Then off to work. When I got into to work, I was surprised again to see a present on my desk from Chris & Gemma. And looky here...inside was a nice ample supply of Crown Royal (my favorite) and a picture of Richard performing stand up comedy at Giggles last week.

Two of my favorite things, together in one box.

The best part of this whole day is yet to come. Tonight, after a great Italian dinner with some friends, Richard will be performing comedy at Giggles as a special birthday present for me. How special is that?

From my point of view

I feel obligated to post something sometimes but the truth is, my life isn't that exciting. I work, try to go the gym, come home and do the same thing over again 5 days a week. The weekends are definitely more exciting don't get me wrong, but I NEVER take my camera with me so I never have any good pictures. I think the pictures are the best part about these things. I love seeing other people and what they are up to by the pics they post.
So, since I don't have any good pics from the past weekend, I will post what I see right now from my point of view.
Here it is...Richard playing video games as I type and we wait for Nate to get here so we can go to dinner.

Here is the view of my laptop as I get ready to post. A few catalogs to look at and a nice cocktail after a hard day at work. Like I said, not very exciting.

So there you have it. Now I'm off to go get some dinner at La Carta de Oaxaca. It is one of the best mexican places in Seattle so if you haven't tried it, next time you are in Ballard, check it out because it is delicious.
