I am 27 today, and I am in LA visiting Eliot.  27, I really am closer to 30 than 20.  This is my first birthday post since trying this blog thing, so I should say something epic, uh, so here we go.  I like to make the claim that my birthday is the first “full” day of spring, because the spring equinox usually starts on the 2oth in the middle of the day.  It has also come to my attention that today is National Corndog Day.  Though I have never liked corndogs, or hotdogs for that matter, I am a fan of fried food on a stick.
Ok, none of that was very epic and now it is the 22nd.  I spent my birthday low key.  We did go down to the beach, it is only 11 blocks from Eliot’s place, then went to Frito Misto for dinner with Scott Stout and had cake for dessert.  After dinner we stopped at Magicopolis a magic theater/bar where one of Eliot’s friend, Erik, works and does magic.  We spent the rest of the night drinking and playing video games with Mike Rhoads, video games that were not rock band.  I have not done that in a long time and though it was not extremely exciting, I had a great time and didn’t wake up with a hang over, further proof that I am getting old.


Holy Nacho Cheese, Batman!

The Sunday after Sarah’s party, Julie and Chris invited us over to their house for an Oscar party.  The highlight of the party besides Sarah’s Snuggie and the “Dreamy” Hugh Jackman hosting, was the nacho cheese fountain.  Chris got a chocolate fountain and thought, “Hey, I bet I could make this work with nacho cheese!”  It does work… gloriously!

Happy Birthday Sarah…

and happy new job, now you have to get a facebook account, dammit! 

Back to Sarah’s birthday party, which was two weeks ago now, I type very slowly.  Sarah’s party was the same day as a local radio station’s charity bar hopping miniature golf  tournament thing.  There where teams and a hole at every bar, so you basically bar hop and drink for charity.  We where not on a team, Sarah just knew some people, we also didn’t drink much because it started early in the afternoon and bar hopping with the sun out just felt wrong.

The party was at this tiny little bar that served some of the greatest pizza I have ever had.  We managed to cram about 30 people, some of which I don’t think actually knew Sarah,  around on large table.  After pizza it was on to Karaoke!

Ok, karaoke was kind of a fail.  First off they had all the light on, who sings karaoke with the lights on!?!  Secondly they played far to much country for a karaoke bar that normally never plays county.  Thirdly, if was full of ass hats who took the whole thing way to seriously, including the DJ or what every you call the guy running karaoke, huge ass hat!  We did have a lot of fun though, mostly making fun of the ass hats. 

The worst part was that it was becoming more obvious that we are all starting to get a little older, we where back home from the bars by 11:30.

I apologize for my flagrant use of the word “ass hat”.
