friday i got off work at 2:00 pm. this was a good start to my birthday-day. then once i picked jackie up from work, we got home and i opened gifts from her (pavement dvd, a graphic novel (read: big boy comics), and a nice zip up sweater we picked out at sears). she knows me, and i love her.
friday night party - successful. it was great that almost everyone that said they were coming were able to make it. everyone drank quite a bit, and thankfully most of the repercussions were felt the next morning/afternoon.
(although: jeff and mandy were missed.. maybe next year. jackie and i are determined that they will someday be our real friends, and not just online friends. ps jeff: thank you so much for the song. it was the best birthday song one could hope for (and much better than mine from last year, to you.))
jackie and i ate gradually a number of times throughout the day saturday, relaxing in pajamas and watching the royal tenenbaums, recovering. i wish every weekend could be spent with more time like that. just being happy and lounging. maybe not so much nurturing heavy hangovers, but still...
dinner at my parents saturday night was nice. it was good to visit again. we don't see them very often. everyone is always so very busy. i received nice gifts there as well. cookies from my nana that i can't eat. i miss nana cookies, but my stomach doesn't miss butter and eggs, that's for sure.
the show in brantford was fun. it's always just fun. i think people are bored/sick of our band. kind of dissapointing, but we all know it won't last forever.
i want to buy jackie one million things for christmas. i'm having a hard time deciding what will be best, as i can only afford a few of the one million things. i love her so.
so, thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. it was easily one of the better b-days i've had in a number of years.
