Birthday Musings

Well, my birthday went by fairly uneventful, which is how I like it and how I've done it since i was 14 and got into trouble for having a food fight during our mystery dinner - Not that I was involved in the altercation, mind you.

This year was my Royal Birthday, meaning, for you Americans, that I turned 26 on the 26th. I, therefore, determined to celebrate at least a little. My birthday, however, fell on a Thursday and there are certainly not many things you can do on a Thursday. I took 3 hours off work to do homework. Then, Josie and Mom came down to wish me happy birthday and I took Josie to my house while Patrick was in class and mom was at work. We played frisbee, managed to get my keys locked in my room (seriously - I had to go to my landlord's to get the spare), and watched old episodes of Animaniacs. Josie learned how incredible cartoons were when I was little and we both lamented in the fact that today's cartoons are all pretty much retarded.

Friday, I had a small party get together with a few people. My friend Jon came down from Salt Lake and brought the game Shadows Over Camelot, where everyone is a knight of the Round Table, trying to complete quests. It's everyone against the board game, unless there is a traitor, and it's really hard. We also made pancakes.

Yesterday, was an unexpected addition to the birthday, with Steve and Nathan throwing me a bit of a surprise party at their house when Brandon and I went over for games. I haven't had that for a long time. Of course, it was just me, Brandon, Steve, and Nathan, but it was a lot of fun.

Today, the final installment will be with my parents after Stake Conference. It's been quite the week.
