OK, so I ended up having a birthday party after all. Still no drinking or club hopping, but instead my grandma and wife setup a party at my grandma’s house. Lots of pizza, lots of soda, lots of cake, and lots of me kicking ass in Mario Kart! :-)
We also went to see Alien vs. Predator today. The movie itself was better than I had expected (I had only gone to see the movie because everyone else wanted to). I was expecting a piece-of-crap movie like Freddy vs. Jason, but there was actually a semblance of a plot to the movie, which pleasantly surprised me.
