Thank you, virtual birthday party attendees. It was both a hoot and a holler to celebrate my thirty-mumbleth year with you. Seven straight hours of cam-streaming and IRC-chatting, not to mention the rampant Facebook-wishing.
But the party did not stop there. On Friday, my friends threw me a surprise party. Offline, even! It was glorious. I got to play You Don’t Know Jack and Qwirkle Cubes, which qualifies the amount of fun as an entirely dangerous amount of fun.
I also received generous and thoughtful gifts. I know, I keep adding things onto this list! Will I stop? Will I ever stop?
I am stopping. Now I am back to regular non-birthday life, which is less shiny but still pretty great.
