Happy Birthday MattyK! (for real this time) (hehe, his head is so big!) My Phone: Ring Ring Matt: Hello. Me: Happy Birthday if it is your birthday. Matt: How sure are you that it's my birthday? Me: I dunno. Matt: Then I'm not telling you if it is or not...

I am so glad that birthdays still excite me. I still get that giddy feeling all day just waiting to go out and celebrate. :) Here's what I did for my 26th birthday party. So, yesterday I turned a big ole 26. And a big ole thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate my 26th birthday! We went to my fav little wine bar, Parallel 42, which I went to for the first time a year ago for my last birthday. It was a ton of fun! So many people came too! I think it was the biggest turnout...

Happy Birthday Andy! Tonight was Andy's birthday celebration at the Frog Bar. Many people I semi-knew were there, I had a fuzzy navel and Derek and I had sex on the beach. I also kept sipping MK's martini (he thinks he's James bond) and KennyK (who also thinks he is James Bond) asked me to be his fake girlfriend for the night. Of course I agreed as long as we fake slept together at the end of the night. MK wouldn't let me undress him in the bar so I undressed Andy instead, people misjudge me if they think I won't...

Happy Birthday Nadia! We went out for Nadia's birthday tonight! Got some pie. I discovered (after knowing her for like 16 years) that me and Jenny have the exact same pie-eating habits. Jen and Adam gave Nad these cute bride and groom build-a-bears. Aaaawwww. I gave Nad Guinness and Guinness glasses all wrapped up in Spongebob paper with a Popple card :) After pie-ing we went to play some pool, which I haven't done in soso long. I was kicking ass for a bit, but then I lost it :( Highlights: 1. Me: 7 weeks into her marriage and Jenny's already cheating? Jenny: What...

Happy Birthday Scotty McHotty! What??? Val didn't take pictures?? Shame shame. Went out for Scott's birthday tonight at Hugo's Frog Bar. I am broke so I only had one drink, even though the food looked really good (I did try a bit of the calamari though, and it was soso good, I mean not chewy at all, it was so tender you didn't even realize there was squid in there). All of Scott's friends who I have never met were there and I really liked them. Scott was even told that I had to be invited more often. Yaymorenewfriendsforval!...

Happy Birthday Brandana! Went out to North Beach in Downers Grove to celebrate Brandon's birthday (despite the fact that I guess it's not until next week). Drinks were free for a bit, which rocks. Brandon decided to do a little strip tease: His friend Professor Eric (or maybe it's Erik) did the same: Twas mostly fun times with mostly fun people. Scott predicts that if I drink in Europe that I will end up stripping at least twice. I told him I probably wouldn't need any drinks for that to happen. I danced with Brandon to dancing type music (but...

Happy Birthday Jen! Yayjen! Last night we went out to Ballydoyle in Downers for some birthday drinking. She thought no one would show because we had work in the morning, bah when have I ever cared that much about work? On my way there I got lost (not really lost, I just didn't see it and passed it and had to turn around). Once I found the parking garage I parked and proceeded to get lost going out, I had no idea which way to go.) The bar was fun. Jen got drunk. I had a beer that was...

Quick outing to Parallel 42 wine bar last night with JoeJoe, Sid (yay! I got to see Sid before he left), and Julie. Had some yummy Riesling and an apple crisp and looked at European train maps. Joe is demanding that I take part in some of the planning. bah. Julie suggested a couple places we have to go, like a hostel that wakes you up with mooing techno music and a place that just serves steak - medium rare, well-done - and that is all. Can't wait! I finally got back some rolls of film, so...

I suppose it's time for a recap of my wonderful, thrilling life! I know you were waiting on the edge of your seat in anticipation. And I'd hate to disappoint. So here is a random list of everythingedness: 1. After watching the trailer for Brokeback to the Future (see earlier post), I decided that I really wanted to see Back to the Future (I also want to see Brokeback Mountain still too). I had actually never seen B2TF before. I'd seen bits and pieces here and there, but never the full together movie. So, I told...

In continuing with my strive to towards having the best year ever, I just had quite possibly my best birthday ever (even surpassing the infamous 21st birthday party where I got everyone so wasted they were throwing up all over the place). For my 25th birthday, we went to Parallel 42, a wine bar in Riverside that I heard of through a girl in my magazine writing class who wrote an article on local wine bars. I seriously had the three of the best wines I've ever had in my life: prosecco, an ice wine ($15 a glass, but worth...
