This is the short version of my birthday. (The long version will come when I have pictures and I can make it funnier.)
My last birthday was a hard one. I had just started school, and I was so exhausted and feeling lost that I didn't know how to deal. So I was a total crabass, and didn't even want to celebrate. And I LOVE celebrating my existence.
This year? That was not the case at all. Even today, 2 days after my actual bday sitting in my ugly little cube, I still am feeling very loved and very spoiled and very lucky.
Quick thank yous to these people:
Sarah and Tim for flying in to surprise me! Even though my spidey senses had a hunch that you might be coming, I didn't think you really would make it, and it meant a lot to me that you were willing to come take naps on my couch and eat breakfast with me.
Tiffany and Kristina for organizing the iPod Posse. Seriously, I almost cried.
Blaire, for the list of things the last 9 years have brought me. So true. I also almost cried. (What is WRONG with you people? Stop trying to make me cry!)
Skylar, for the Rachel's Birthday Marshmallow Mermaid Pie. I hope someone took a picture, because it was so pretty and so sweet and I love YOU for it.
Tedd for hauling the booze.
Tim for buying more booze. While wearing my shoes.
Lane for the mac'n cheese.
Everyone who came and took part in the bad story shenanigans and jello shots. And brought cupcakes.
Ok, that was longer than I intended it to be, but it's the best I can do for now. I hope I didn't forget anyone important, but know that there is more to come with this story.
And seriously, I think I have more booze now than when I started, so if anyone wants to come over for a drink anytime soon, please do. I'm not even kidding.
