Birthday Roundup 2009

16 04 2009

Ok, herewith a roundup of my 22nd birthday, being that it occured on Monday 13 April 2009.

Staying awake over midnight, a few people get the first wishes in as the clock strikes. George especially, just as the clock ticks over, gets the first wish this year. A few minutes later, my girlfriend phones. I then log onto Facebook, expecting a huge swamp of well-wishes, but there is only a little notice from the Facebook team. Kinda lame.

Not quite as exciting as last year, I still had a really good time. It helped that it was on a public holiday, so everybody was at home, and I didn’t have to go to varsity and what-not.

Ok, a breakdown of the activities. Um, breakfast with George, after waking up and getting present/wishes/hugs etc. from parents. We went to Cappuchino’s at Northgate and it was AWESOME! (Incidentally, the same place we went to for supper, but more on that later).Then we arbed around Northgate for a bit, looking at stuff. Haha. Came home, played Fallout 3 until afternoon.

Girlfriend arrived, we unwrapped the present (was in about 50 different boxes, each smaller and smaller and within the larger boxes) and then had cake and Mountain Dew. Then we played Guitar Hero until it was time to go to dinner. As previously mentioned, I decided on Cappuchino’s Northgate, and it was awesome. I had the most amazing club sandwich. WOW it was amazing. I even had some left over which I had the next day and it was still amazing! Haha, everybody seemed to be quite impressed with the place, the menu choice and the quality of the food. The only downside was due to it being Monday night and a public holiday, there wasn’t very many people, and so the atmosphere felt a little dead. But it was still amazing.

And then we went home, had coffee and more cake (wow we had the most amazing cakes. My mom bought a chocolate cherry cake, and a batch of chocolate brownies, and my GF brought 9 chocolate cupcakes from her mom. Very awesome.), and then just basically sat around and chatted until it was time for the GF to leave.

Um … after that, I think I just sat around on the PC as I usually do and just savoured the last few hours of my birthday. Can’t wait for 13 April 2010!

Brief rundown of the gifts:

  • Money from parents.
  • HD monitor from brother Grant.
