Birthday weekend highlights part 1

Went to see Eddie Izzard!

Pre show we went to dinner at a Malaysian restaurant. Ummm they are trying to sell 2 buck chuck for 3.95 per glass and 26.95 per bottle. Ok what idiot is going to pay 4 bucks for a glass of something that they can buy an entire bottle for at Trader Joe's for 2 bucks or sheesh an entire case for what they are charging for one bottle! C'mon people! That's just a bad idea. And the MERLOT? Ouchie!

We had seats on the floor and it was like we were the blue light special.

It was fabulously funny! Pre show and during intermission they had a scroll of incoming tweets from people in the audience on the big screen. It was a great way to pass the time. Parking was $30 and I am still a little wounded over it

And ...

My $1 Michael's seedlings are sprouting. I think this one is the sunflower. The other two are chives and basil but they've yet to peek out. It's the little things. : )

More to come, It's shaping up to be a super busy week. Oh the life of a 30-something woman! Tee hee I'm feeling all grown up at 31. Eh well sorta.


ps- those were all cell phone picts! You have to love being able to capture a moment wherever you are! I do!

Two buck chuck for 20 dollars a bottle?! You've got to be kiddng me. That's reallllly bad kharma in my opinion for whoever does the pricing at that restaurant. Sheesh is right!

Can't wait for bday highlights part 2!!! I thought the post office closed at 5pm, but it closed at 4:30pm. :( So I'll have to mail your bday present tomorrow!

I know I'm horrible at getting people presents on time, but I like to think that it's pleasant little surprise. When everyone else is totally over your birthday, I'm just getting geared up! Tee hee.

If my wife finds out that you got to see Eddie Izzard for your birthday she is going to expect a lot from me next year. Or make me move to California :-/

Looks like fun, and wow the 2 buck chuck merlot is hardly worth the $2.99 it costs here in Charlotte!

Happy belated bday, looks like you had a good time :)

I didn't know that you were a 30-something! I thought you were a 27-something. Hot mama.

Happy Birthday, late of course!
