I haven't really written about my birthday yet, so I figured I would, for posterity.|
I was woken up by Colin, who said I HAVE FIVE MINUTES TO GET TO WORK MY ALARM DIDN'T GO OFF! which is a horrible way to start your birthday. So we hurriedly got ready and I took the keys to the Mazda, only to back out and hit the Explorer. Fortunately, there was only a scratch, and one that my father hasn't noticed yet. So I ran out of the Mazda and into the Explorer and drove him to work in that instead. Mind you, this is at like 8:50 in the morning.
I spent the rest of the morning playing Sims 2 and grumbling to myself.
For my birthday, I received an iPod (with my name personalized on the back, ooh la la!), a case for my computer and iPod (for the flight), and some adaptors for electrical cords in Europe. I have stuff coming in the mail from my brother and sister, and Colin is currently working on finding me something since he has barely no money, and most of his money is either going to go to my parents or to his own flight to Europe eventually. I had German chocolate cake and low-fat ice cream (not because I wanted low fat, but because I have to have it due to the aftermath of getting my gall bladder removed). Then we drove up to Toledo and hung out with Alex and Lauren for awhile. It wasn't an incredibly memorable birthday, but it was nice.
Since then, I've just been getting sick at work (I threw up in the midst of doing dishes on Monday! And I called off work today because I got sick again this morning...) and playing more Sims 2...I also went shopping recently to get new clothes, and my own towel and washcloth for when I'm on my own. Also, I bought what I thought was a purse, but it ended up being a diaper bag. But whatever, I like it and it even has drink carriers (for bottles, I guess, but who cares?) so I can sneak drinks into the movies. Perfect.
