Anyway, the "festivities" began last night. Myke and Alicia came over to hang out for a little before I went to bed. They brought the amazing cake pictured above and it was SO GOOD. I was busy folding laundry and attempting to get my apartment in order for the next two weeks when I have a few days off (YES!). But they visited and we chatted while watching TV and smoking. We had a really great time, especially since I won't get to see them at often anymore. They are moving to Denver, Colorado this weekend and I'm gonna miss them like crazy. Myke is one of my best friends and I've known him for about 9 years now. Shortly after midnight I went to bed.
And then the iphone alerts began early morning....it was really amazing to see how many people were thinking about me on my birthday. Facebook, twitter, email, texts, better blogger network, pretty much any kind of social interaction device you can think of I've had birthday well wishes. Makes me feel so so so so special.
I did work today, it just happened that way, don't worry I have a few days off scheduled soon. July 9th I took off and then I'm also off July 15-17th. Little mini vacation like this past week where I was off tues, wed, thurs. Really really nice to have two days off in a row. That makes such a difference.
Going to Universal Studios on Monday to visit Harry Potter world or whatever. I'm super excited, I love Harry Potter. Sunday I'm going to my mom's house to visit with her, stepdad, and my brothers. And then hopefully the week of the 15th David and I will get to the beach for a nice relaxing day.
Gift to myself...get my ass healthy and in shape. I'm 27 now!
And the alerts are still coming in. I want to thank all my friends, family, and ANYONE who reached out today, thank you for making my day so fucking special.
PS--Here's a link to my personal facebook page, it has the cake photo as my cover. Nice and pretty. And I totally blew out all the candles with one breath, YEAH! https://www.facebook.com/lindsaycraftafarian
