Birthday Weekend...

I had a fantastic birthday!  Friday night's party was a good time filled with Moscato, homemade Sangria, and cheesecake.  I ate too much, drank too much, and generally felt great besides being really full. 

Saturday Robb and I drove around.  No, really.  We decided to go to Sonic for lunch, which was about an hour away.  Then we drove around Chicagoland just enjoying the music in the CD player and the gorgeous day.  Taking 19 around the backside of O'Hare?  So neat.

And then we chilled at home, hit the arcade later that night, and decided to have a quiet night at home.  We blasted through Contra for the NES just for kicks, and then called it a night.

And yesterday was church, writing group, and dinner with my family at Yen Ching.  My mom gave me the contents of the family change jar all wrapped up by my devious little sister, and she gave me my grandmother's antique tea (sake?) set.  It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift!  I loved that grandma so much (we called her Gramma Gramma)!  Robb got me Wario Ware D.I.Y. for my DS and Marbles got me Mario & Luigi:  Bowser's Inside Story for my DS!  Sweet gifts always make me smile!  AND!  I have so many leftovers I won't be able to finish them all, but I'm going to give it my best shot! 

And today at 2?  After I'm all bloated on leftover Chinese food?  JOB INTERVIEW! 

Yes yes.  Oh, and I discovered the funniest video of all time:

Seriously.  I don't even have to watch it and I start laughing about it...oh my gosh. You might want to actually go to YouTubeand watch it, since it won't fit here, sadly.

And with that?  Have a great day!

Happy Belated Birthday!

First of all, happy belated birthday to you, Justin! Sounds like you had a great party :)

Other than that, I think it's cute that you and Robb drove an hour so you could eat at Sonic. I've never been to a Sonic, sadly.

Oh, and can I just say I'm jealous that you're with someone who will play games with you? My husband will play some of the Wii Fit mini-games with me, but that's about it. Oh, well :)

Congrats on getting WarioWare DIT and Mario & Luigi 3. Can't wait to hear what you think of them -- esp. WarioWare (which I may have to buy soon, despite the fact that I shouldn't).

Finally: Break a leg during that interview!

Oh. My. God. I just watched the "Talking Carl" scream fight. I actually guffawed while watching it. Perfect video for a dismal Monday.

Oh, here's how you can make those YouTube videos fit your blog, if you're interested. Basically, when you copy and paste the video's embed code into your blog post, change the "object width" in the code to 425 and the "height" to 344.

OH! THANKS! That's so much help! :-) I knew I kept you around for a reason other than, you know, that you're wildly entertaining pretty much all the time!

Belated birthday wishes from me too!

No problem, Justin! Let me know if my instructions didn't make any sense.

Other than that, I just did a horrible, horrible thing and ordered WaroWare DIY via Amazon. I couldn't help myself after watching a few of Nintendo's recent tutorial vids --

Good. Then you'll love the email I just sent you.
