hkellick: (Glowing Friend)
My Birthday was... Quiet.

On one hand, that made me kind of sad. I have fond memories of days spent over at the local amusement park with friends and having small parties with a group of small, close friends. 

On the other hand, it was gratifying. Weekend have become my mental deep breath before going back to work and feeling like I'm underwater again.

We didn't do a whole lot. We went shopping, Robert finally got Cars 2 (because he LOVES Lightning McQueen but I can not watch the Cars movie over and over or else I'ma kill someone. Probably the boy. 

We went to Chili's for dinner. Which was nice, but a bit disappointing. The food was.. standard (ie not spectacular), expensive and they made me pay for Chips which just ticked me off. 

I knew I wasn't getting much for my birthday: K got me my gift early (It was either Civ V or Lego: Batman 2. Let's say Civ V: Gods and Kings.). My father bought me my PE review books and I wasn't expecting anything else. But I did convince the wife to let me buy a $3 EP for Dungeons of Dredmor.

May I take a second to say that one of the reasons why I love Steam is Dungeons of Dredmor. Also Terraria. Two Cheap but hugely fun Indie Games that cost very little but give hours and hours of fun. Dungeons of Dredmor cost $5, has had one free EP and two $3 EPs, I believe, and I love love love that game and, if I gave it the kind of time I give Skyrim, could happily play for weekend on end.

Anyways. That was it. We ended the night by kicking Napoleon's Ass and Chasing Down Genghis Kahn and I can think of far worse ways to end a birthday...
Though... I do think ti would be awesome if I could get my friends down for a weekend and we could all kick Napoleon's Ass and chase down Genghis Kahn. That would be awesome. ;)

All in all, it was a pretty decent birthday weekend. Just couldn't help but compare, because that's the kind of dork I am.
