Yay!!! I'm 28 now. My silly mom had a bet that I wouldn't survive past 27, but I showed her! Take that!
I've always loved my birthdays. Loved them. It seems to go against the norm, but I can't help it. To have one day, or more, dedicated to me!?! Who would ever pass that up? Not me, I'll inform you of that right now... and that's nothing you'll find in any Wiki online.
This year's birthday celebration was different, but variety is also the spice of life, so who's to complain? Not me, I'll inform you of that right n... sorry. Anyway. Yes, this year was a bit different, but good. On Friday night, a group of friends and I went to twilight hours of Worlds of Fun. Whoever is willing to pay full price there during the day, in my book, is an absolute idiot. Let's see why: half price, cooler temperatures and no lines = extreme fun. Don't get too psyched up, it's still the ugly bastard child of Wal-Mart – everyone goes there, and they wear the most unfortunate of clothes. Is that awful to say? Too bad, I said it.
On Saturday, I traveled to Lawrence, Kansas, to chill with Todd and other F-towners before their show that evening. We somehow spent about three hours at the Holiday Inn there, even though none of us were staying there. But there was an indoor pool, indoor mini-golf and free wi-fi... cha-ching! We also learned a valuable lesson that day, you shouldn't swim in a pool if you have diarrhea. WAIT!!! Who in the hell swims in that condition!?!
That night I saw one of my favorite bands play, The Good Fear. If you haven't heard these guys yet, please, check them out... they're amazing.
On Sunday I saw "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." It wasn't the best movie in the world, but it was pretty darn good. On my Netflix rating, I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars (1 = utter crap, 2 = pretty damn bad, 3 = worth the money, 4 = I wanna see it again, 5 = I'm buying it). Here's my ten-word-stream-of-consciousness review:
So now I'm 28. Weird. But I'm still super active and feeling great, so age doesn't bother me. Yet.
Thanks to everyone who made my birthday special, as always. I hope that I can return the favor.
