Angela really overdid it. Honestly. In the end, I’ve had a wonderful three days of being spoiled.
On Thursday night, Erin dropped by on her trek to KC. This led to some good Isis/Jabber time and also let Erin and I catch up over some tasty BBQ. She also introduced me to a fun new game called Alhambra. Good times, although I must say that I enjoy Settlers better.
On Friday, Angela treated me to baseball, beer, brats, and blowing things up, all in the same event! We went to a Fort Worth Cats minor league game. Their logo, no kidding, is FTW, and boy did they, 9-3. We even made friends with a completely wasted old man with a net loss of teeth. It’s always fun to carry on conversations with people who might as well have a mouthful of marbles. I like it because I can invent in my head whatever I want them to say and the conversation carries on just about the same.
I was really surprised on Saturday. Angela took me out to get a massage which nearly put me to sleep the rest of the afternoon. Thankfully I came to, because after that we went to Truluck for an amazing dinner. I had the sesame tuna this time and Angela tried the mahi-mahi. Both were fantastic. We finished the night watching Wall*E. I found it very cute and incredibly human, which is funny considering it’s a movie about two robots on Earth with only a couple lines of dialog between them.
Today, my actual birthday, I largely spent in bed being lazy. This evening, after some grocery shopping (and cake-buying!!) we met up with Griff and Courtney to watch Wanted at Movie Tavern. I really enjoyed the film, and it was a great end to the weekend.
Sadly we all head back to work tomorrow. Thankfully, Angela and I will be meeting up with my folks in two weeks to spend a short 3 day vacation on the coast. Time to start looking forward to that.
