it was a great birthday
So great, in fact, that I haven't had time to write about it till today.
I remember last year the weather was pretty lousy and everything just seemed really low-key.
The weekend started off with my office Christmas party - we had a casino night on Town Lake. I wish I'd thrown some bigger bets down, but overall it was a blast. Mary Alice claimed my Hillshire Farm gift pack while I was upstairs, so at least I won something.
Saturday I started putting up Christmas lights...just finished that tonight. Wrapped three of the oak trees in front and the deck railing in back. Hopefully I can take some pictures soon.
Saturday night a bunch of folks came over; let me see if I can list them...Mark, Sara(h?), Paul, Emma, Rolando, Cristina, Mike, Mimi, Jason, Ron, John, and David. Mary Alice made another great German Chocolate cake and Rolando brought Jaegermeister and Red Bull. Now that's a party. We got to watch KSU beat up on the Okies as well as demo my HDTV. Good stuff.
Sunday was recovery from Saturday. Mary Alice and I took pictures for Christmas cards, one should be on the way to you soon.
Monday night I met Mike at the Stephen F. Austin for some Old Fashioned's and then went out with the bible study guys to BW3 and Buffalo Billiards. The last-minute comeback by Stockton and Malone on NBA Jam was one for the ages. My pool playing is better off fading into the past.
