Turned 31 this weekend.


About 20 people ambushed me on Friday night for my birthday, I had a nice time and it's good to know that my friends care about me.

That being said, I felt bad that Trish and Jeff couldn't really eat any of the food at the restaurant I arbitrarily decided to go to thinking that it would just be me and Krishna. As this is the second such ambush I have experienced, I would just like to state for the record that I am not opposed to birthday celebration, I just hate making a big deal of things like that.

I don't want to be the guy who goes around saying "Guess who's birthday is coming up? That's right, me! My birthday is coming up in 6 weeks! Pay attention everyone, extremely important birthday announcement!"

And while it was nice to have dinner with a bunch of my friends present, I would much rather have an actual party where I can talk to more than 4 people, I don't have to worry about giving our poor waiter a heart attack, and accommodations can be made for all of the members of Camp "I can't eat that."

It was a very nice dinner, the food/appetizers at the Roadhouse Grill are great, and it's nice to know that people will go out of their way to ambush me for a birthday celebration.

Saturday was overall pretty mellow, and then on Sunday I went over to Kurt & Candace's anniversary barbecue. Food was delicious, good company, and I even mostly managed to stick to my diet.

Then I picked up Spore, which is interesting, in that it's like 5 fairly different games rolled into one. It was good enough that I wound up playing it for something like 8 hours straight. Not sure how long it will hold my interest, the "galactic empire" stage seems a bit tedious to me so far, and it seems like it will become more annoying as my empire grows.

Let me know...

...how Spore turns out. It looked interesting, but all the reviews since its release have been about how the DRM sucks monkey balls, so its hard to figure out if the game itself is actually good. :-)
