So, yesterday was my birthday and I have to say it's in the top 3 as the most fun i've had like ever. last year doesn't count because i was in Ireland and no one can touch that.

I spent the day with my two best friends. And it was great because i got to do whatever i wanted and they couldn't say no. Personally, i think EVERY day should be my birthday because that worked out very well for me.

we started off with breakfast at Bernardo's. I forgot to take a picture of what i had so i just took a picture of what i had left.

here we are satiated and READY TO GO!

(see my adult acne? Anyone have product suggestions that will help super white irish acne-proned skin would be GREATLY appreciated)

First item on the agenda: liquor store for lottery tickets. I took a before pix because i knew there'd be a good after. because it IS MY BIRTHDAY!

yeah baby...$25 bucks! (I haven't checked my lotto ticket yet so if you don't hear from me in a while, you can guess why)

I mentioned maybe going to the casino and we said "to hell with it...let's go!" so we went. Janet won $200 bucks and i was pissed. it's MY birthday! But alas i had to squelch my selfish, bratty behavior and be genuinely happy for her. and i really was. i just wanted to be happy for me too.

we partied quite a bit there. see?

this is the waterfall in the bar which i thought was really cool. and when i win the lottery, i'm gonna put one of these in my 'bar'.

i eventually won back the money i took out of my atm and breaking even is better than not. This is the start of Janet saying how much fun we had and what a great way to spend my birthday and now we can go home, bundle up and get ready for bed.

Until i mention Poor Reds. "Try and stop me!" she off to poor reds we go.

Poor Reds is famous for their gold cadillacs and they are delicious! But i start with Brown Cows (which is kinda the same; just made with kahlua) They are basically milk shakes with alcohol so you can see the deadly potential. i have many a black out nights there. but today i behaved. i am 41 now, you know?

aaaaand here's us AFTER our yummy drinks:

i'm always happy when i'm buzzed. :)

next round on janet and here are part of her winnings: >:( oops. guess i'm still jealous.

As we left, Janet mentioned how fun of a day we had and what a perfect way to spend my birthday and now we can go home, bundle up and get ready for bed.

Until I mentioned The Interlude.

GASP! "Yes!! that's perfect! we'll go to the Interlude, have just one and THAT is the perfect way to end your birthday and then we can go home, bundle up and get ready for bed!!"

The Interlude is friggin' great. It is a very old bar, with very old clientele, and good, stiff, cheap drinks. my kinda place. and the bartender was totally sweet and didn't charge me for my drink since it was my birthday. no one else did that earlier. cheap bastards.

here we are at The Interlude with a bourbon & water and my jack & coke (eeewwww, by the way)

We did really only have one. And we were going to leave and actaully make it home but we were hungry so we went to Hamburger Mary's for dinner and then JANET said "we HAVE to go to Tallac Lounge because THAT will be the perfect way to end your birthday night and after just one we can head home and..." know how the rest of the story goes.

Phew! we drank alot. But we had a blast. I felt 21; not 41 and that's all right by me. good night my sweet friend & lover. thanks for spending the whole day with me, thanks for making me feel special and thanks for paying for everything ; )

(the next morning we let kody have my balloons becuase he LOVES to mess with he is taking them from my room to the hallway. he broke off the weighted string so the 2nd pix is him figuring out how he's going to get those off the ceiling so he can maul them. I helped.)

Let's see, on Kevin's birthday, Kody puts underwear on his head. On you're birthday, you paint the town red. Sounds fair to me. Sorry, I don't really have any helpful hints for the Irish-white acne. I get more zits now than when I was 15. If I don't drink for a couple of days it seems to clear up. ((SMACK!!)) That's me knocking some sense into myself. Don't drink? HA!
Glad you had a fun night with some wonderful friends!

OMG- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sounds like you had an awesome day! We have a place in the village in NYC called the Korova Milk Bar. It's based on the bar in a Clockwork Orange where they drink drug laced milk. You get drinks that are made with ice cream and it is insanely indulgent...

#1: i am sorry i missed your birthday. i really do think you are fabulous and i am glad you had a great time!

#2: from one very white irish girl with acne to another, i love burts bee's blemish stick. it stings like crazy, but it dries those zits out overnight most of the time (sometimes it take a few days . . . but then i am also not a very consistant person, so maybe it would do it overnight if i was on top of my game).

#3: hugs!!
