ignore the rancor of that last entry. i am overall in a great mood today, thanks in large part to the events of yesterday.
last night the plan was to meet up with shawn and triet for our weekly drinks at 26 mix. we've been going there on wednesdays because they have dollar beers and free pool. given that it's only a half block from my house, it would be criminally insane NOT to go.
triet met me at my place around 10. shawn was running late, but he said he'd meet us there. so we headed over, and when i walked in shawn was standing at the bar. i said hi, and as i turned around to check out the scene, i was suddenly stopped dead in my tracks. sitting there in the corner were angi, jenny, laura, jay, cosmo, lina, missy, az., sandeep, elio, and jayeesha, surrounded by party decorations. "SURPRISE!"
needless to say, i was surprised. it turned out to be a celebration of my 26th at 26mix! we ate ice cream cake and drank tecates and blew up toxic balloons, and i lit cigarettes with my chairman mao lighter. elio told a good joke involving thumbs and blowjobs, az. and i shook our hips to janet jackson, and the night was over all too soon.
i am lucky to have the friends that i do. as you may have noticed, that's a recurring theme in this journal.
