I'm having a two-day birthday party

I went to work yesterday morning. Thankfully, I only had to work two hours. I brought with me more Mint and Milk Chocolate Hershey Kisses to refill the little basket on my desk and some chocolate "It's a boy!" cigars to give out. I got off work at 11:00 AM. I don't have to go back to work till Monday. *cheers*

Afterwards, Mom and I went to lunch at Macaroni Grill. It's kinda like a cross between Olive Garden and Applebee's. Anyway, I had chicken alfredo, my favorite. Good stuff. The tables had paper tablecloths, so I got to doodle while I waited. Mom thought I was too old for that. You're never too old to doodle, I say.

Then Mom and I went to the mall. Talk about packed. Every store had long lines and it was hard to move around with all the people in the way.

Mom and I went to the American Eagle store (I think that's the name of it) because Mom wanted to get a gift card for Lindsey, and that's one of her favorite stores. I found a long-sleeved t-shirt for Mark -- it's green with a white Oriental dragon on it.

After the mall, we went to Target. I got Dad a big, white Igloo cooler. I also got some really pretty wrapping paper and bows -- we were running out. And, I got myself a copy of LXG on DVD. I hadn't seen it before. It was good. Not great, but good. During some of the action scenes, it seemed like the cameraman wasn't holding the camera steady enough. That was annoying. And vampiress Mina wasn't affected by sunlight. Huh? Anyway, I loved Skinner, and he totally reminds me of Gambit. Dorian Gray was absolutely gorgeous, but he was a little too arrogant for me. Come to think of it, he reminded me of Jareth.

Anyway, then we went to the hospital to visit Kalob, Patty, and Mark. He was actually awake more this time. Patty and Kalob are coming home today. Anyway, Robert and Lindsey stopped by while we were there. Lindsey held Kalob for a long while. She needs the practice for when Reilly comes. :-)

Then Mom and I went to Albertson's to get my birthday cake and ice cream. I picked up a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, my favorite. I had that while I watched LXG late last night.

For dinner, Mom, Dad, Mark, Robert, Lindsey, and I went to Red Lobster. Since I had alfredo for lunch, I didn't get the crab alfredo (my usual). I got the Admiral's Feast instead. My eyes are bigger than my stomach, so there's a lot for lunch today. Our waitress and one other wished me a happy birthday and gave me a free sundae. I love free food. :-)

Anyway, we're doing the cake and presents tonight so Patty and Kalob can be there too.
