My Birthday Rocked!

I know it's a little late (yeah, like 3 weeks ago) but my birthday was a blast this year! Many of you know how clumsy and awkward I am (mostly clumsy) so you know how I ran into a pole with a brown stain on the butt of my dress last year and then won that stuff for making an ass out of myself on the radio afterwards. Because I'm stupid and clumsy. Well, you know that stupidity and clumsiness apparently pay off. One of the prizes that I won was a stretch limo for 6 hours. We're way too old to ride around in a limo for 6 hours, hanging out the sunroof so instead we did a wine tour of Texas... nothing like starting the booze cruise at 10am! Jackie, Todd, Chris, Alma and I rode out to Fredericksburg and picked up Nina and Kevin, who were visiting from the valley for their 2nd wedding anniversary. (Or 1st? Not sure BECAUSE I WASN'T INVITED. It's okay, we lost touch, I just wanted to rub it in.) Anyway, so we packed up the vodka, OJ and champagne and made a mini road trip out of it. Sooooo... after 3 wineries and 6 hours we were all sufficiently drunk enough to start my birthday day off with a bang! Not that I need to get drunk to have a good time, anyone that knows me knows that I'm always willing to make an ass out of myself for a few laughs.

So later that night we went to Berry Hill for dinner and drinks. Mmmm... they have awesome margaritas and tacos.. I felt kind of bad because I didn't really get to talk to everyone, I feel like it went by so fast. After dinner some of us headed out downtown to meet Eric and his crew. Man oh man, I always have a blast with those guys! We did shot after shot after shot.. I didn't even drink the entire big beer that I had ordered. Tacho was there with some chick with crazy hair and a scary animal print dress of some sort. A friend of theirs apparently has some history with Tacho so we talked shit about his date all night. That was fun. Sometimes I love talking shit about people I don't know... ahh, good times. Apparently at some point in the night I decided that Chris wasn't having a good time (He didn't feel so well after having been drinking all day) so I think that I did some Supastar thing, like the 90's SNL Molly Shannon character. Don't know why... oh yeah, because I'd had 64 shots.

Anyway, long of the short of it, I had an awesome birthday! Thank you to everyone that made it so much fun!!!

Aww Katie, I had a blast too! Oh, and sorry about the wedding, we had lost touch... but I did save you $$ on a wedding present:). BTW, it was our two year anniversary. Either way, thanks for taking us with you on the wine tour, we had an absolute blast. You should have seen me that evening, since I kept drinking, I was worthless by like 7. Good times.

Tee hee hee, I was just kidding about the wedding thing, I thought it would be funny to post! I can't wait to see you at mine!!! Yayyy!

How do you not have the picture up of you doing your Molly Shannon pose? So sad you won't be there for our Superbowl party.

Dear Miss-impatient-blog-reader,

Thank you for the semi-praiseful comment on my "festivus" post, but these students are working me to death 24/7. So if I don't have time to post something hilarious and witty for your amusement, forgive me.
It's only because my full-time no-pay job sometimes has me comatose for the 12 straight hours between 6pm and 6am.

my bad!

And even though I didn't leave 200 picture comments wishing you a happy birthday on your blog, I did wish you a happy birthday by phone. So, glad to hear you had a fun birthday. :)

Many thanks for the dedicated reads,

p.s. Congratulations on the goo-goo clusters! I shall be raiding your stash next time I'm in town.
