9.30 - Happy Birthday to Me
Shoes: Nine West from Famous Footwear
Happy Birthday to me.
My birthday fell on a 9/80 day off. Boy was I excited. Well then it turned out I had to go into work for a 4 hour meeting. Not so bad. I figured I could leave at lunch. My meeting in the morning went pretty well.
This morning I got a birthday card. Then later that same person bought me a brownie. They were from the same person. It was extra special because she's not even a good friend. She is just a coworker. It makes me happy. I actually wanted to take her out to lunch based on how hard she is working but she was MIA when I went to eat lunch. So I ate alone in my cube. Since I'm never at work on the same Friday as Jen, I forgot she was around. She had other plans anyway.
Then I ended up at work later than 95% of the people Then after 11 hours, it got better.
Two friends offered to go out to dinner with me since I said Dave was full from lunch so no birthday dinner for me. I picked Olive Garden. There was a wait. Nick said I had to eat 3 bowls of pasta.... so I did. I actually got 4 because the waiter messed up one so I ate half the wrong one. Nick coordinated them to bring me a cake. He was tricky. I even had a bowl after that. The waiter laughed when I asked for my 4th bowl. I guess I ate more than he or anyone thought. I wasn't even full when I quit eating. I was just taking so long. I was done eating a good 20 minutes after everyone else. I just quit so that I didn't make everyone else wait.
After dinner, Dave and I watched The X Factor.
