The birthday was all sorts of good, and it just doesn’t stop!
I already had the “family birthday” on Sunday, so I wasn’t expecting too much more pomp and circumstance through the week.
I arrived to well-wishes and a card at work, and the day seemed to fly right by. Also, thanks for all the birthday greetings on the blog. It’s nice when the lurkers pipe up a bit to say “hi” on a special day 🙂
After that, I went for dinner with Brian to Steamworks (mmm… frambozen) then we went to Storyeum. I highly recommend it if you’re at all into museum-ey type stuff, and are interested in the history of BC. My only complaints: The show was a teensy bit cheesy – it’ll obviously be entertaining to the classes of school kids who will be their target market once the tourist season dies down; and the accoustics could be better. There was much too much echo bouncing off of the concrete walls and floor, making it hard to clearly hear the actors at times. Or maybe I’m just getting old.
I turned into a pumpkin after the show, so we headed home and I crashed pretty much instantly.
Today I went to amazon.ca to cash in the gift certificate I received for my birthday from my wonderful friend peanut, and am expecting a package in the next 6-10 days full of all sorts of goodies. Not only did I have the gift certificate, but an additional $5 off coupon came in my mastercard bill today, and I had overpayed my amex. It’s been waiting for a chance like this to top off some shopping.
Tomorrow (because the week’s been so busy) is birthday lunch day with the girls from work, and I still have a birthday drink to look forward to from sn0wangel on Saturday night (subliminal message: come to pub night!). I do believe that will be the official end to the festivities – but it’s been quite a pleasant run.
And now, grocery shopping. Life returns to normal much too quickly.
