I could write this huge post about what a great time I had last night, but I’m still tired (I went to sleep at about 3:30 and got back up at 8:30) and I’ve discovered that Kathy has said it all very well. So I’ll try to recall some of the highlights:
:: Kenny, Elaine’s husband, was smoking like a chimney because it seems that Elaine has plans to “smack the patch on his ass” today to help him stop smoking.
:: Lupe’s margaritas are good, and the fajitas were back to being wonderful last night. Yum, yum! And the wait staff sings quite well. Yes, I wore the sombrero – they snuck up on me and I had no choice. It was all fun and I’ll have to scan the polaroid they took.
:: We took a ton of photos, they will be coming soon.
:: We had to split up across two tables at Lupe’s because there were 16 of us – and somehow all of the blog owners ended up at one table. With Kenny, the non-blogger.
:: Kenny really should have a blog, even though he doesn’t want one. The things he says are just priceless.
:: One should never say “Wow! Look at the moon!” while riding with Hanna. She will look – while driving on I-45 at a high rate of speed. This is not wise.
:: We were never lost while driving to Prive, we were just cruising the edges of downtown, checking out the construction on Main Street and so forth. There is a big difference.
:: A barrel of crude oil costs $34 for 55 gallons. A tube of K-Y costs $8. So what if you’re not supposed to use petroleum based products with condoms – it’s good to give a man a challenge. Just use vaseline and then race to use the condom within the 3 minutes before it disappears! (Yes, this was discussed. Seriously. EJ and Mike started it, but Kenny added the race concept.)
:: Never, EVER, drink a “Leatherneck”. 2 parts Bicardi 151, 1 part Tabasco – Kenny was in tears for the rest of the night. You know you’re in trouble when the waitress runs up right before the guys do shots and says, “I want to watch!!!” Oh yeah, that’s a sign to just say no.
:: Everyone that was there was absolutely wonderful, I had a GREAT time and it was a very Happy Birthday day all around! They took great care of me, treated me to drinks and dinner, and I simply had a blast. I can’t wait to get together with them again!
Thank you again to *everyone* for making it such a wonderful day! The rest of the weekend is going to be dedicated to some high-quality time with Jason, enjoying this wonderful weather. I think we might head over to Mountasia later for some more go-cart racing. Tomorrow I think we will head down to the zoo – we haven’t been there in ages!
