The More You Know

Things I learned this weekend: I still enjoy a good hockey game. You can force people to come out, but you can’t force them to stay out. When taking shots, it’s best to spread them out over time. Free wifi at bars is dangerous. No matter what excuse you have, you'll feel guilty for skipping family functions. MechWarriors is not a 15-minute thing. Motion sickness sucks, especially when there's no motion. Ice cream cone cupcakes baffle people. Walgreens sells eggs (but keeps them hidden). You can take on the Easter bunny and win. People are genuinely happy when you mention it’s your birthday. Gifts are nice but phone calls are nicer. Sometimes all you need is your best friend.

This weekend was my birthday (and something called Easter). I broke from tradition and mixed it up. It was simple but truly enjoyable. Maybe next year, to quote my sister-in-law, I won't "drink my face off". Honestly, it's something you could never plan. Thanks to everyone who made it a success (or bared witness)!

  1. Happy late birthday!

    Sorry the wish is late, but this weekend was crazy, and I'm just now getting around to catching up on blogs. :)

    p.s. If there's no motion involved in motion sickness, is it just called 'sickness' instead?

  2. The sickness makes it sounds like a mental illness. Which might still be accurate...

    Thanks for the birthday wish! You were quicker than my younger sister. :)
