Well my celebration has been over for some time, but it was a good week. On Saturday, I went to a friend's Halloween party that was really fun, and felt like I was kicking off my birthday week. Sunday night, the girls (my roommates) took me for ice cream at Joe's ice cream on Geary. Monday, my actual birthday, I had class all day. This included the gift of being able to dissect a cat (note the sarcasm). Pretty awful, but makes for a good story I guess? and treated myself by ditching my night class! My best friend Elizabeth and our friend who goes to Berkeley took me out for sushi and then for an amazing cookie/ice cream/hot fudge/whip cream delicious sundae at Ghiradelli Square.
My roommates had class so they couldn't come, but I they sang to me and enjoyed the caramel apple pie I asked Kelly to make me! I opened some cards and gifts I received, which is always fun.
Wednesday, which was Halloween,
I went camping at Mt. Tamalpais with Liz and Pat (the two in the picture) & some other friends from Berkeley. We dressed up in our costumes, and it just enjoyed getting away for a night. For the party on Saturday night, Liz and I were both 80's aerobics instructors and Pat was a gay lumberjack (Flannel shirt, a beanie, an ax, and cut off jean shorts-VERY classy.) For the camping trip, Pat and I had the same costumes, but Liz was a runner. Oh yes, and the mustache was just floating around.
Friday, my roommates and our friend Brittany from Walnut Creek took me to dinner at BJ's. Delicious food AND they gave me a free pizookie!!! If you don't know what that is, it is a huge freshly baked cookie (I always get chocolate chip) with ice cream on top. After dinner, we met up with more of our friends in Pacifica for cosmic bowling. It was a great night!
All in all, it was a great time. 20! Seems like a weird kind of in-between age. I think my favorite birthday party I had was a miner themed party. I think I was 7 or 8, and everyone dressed up as miners, I had a ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins that had a miner on the top, we mined for fools gold, and had some other fun party games. After that, I had some other fun themed birthdays but there always seemed to be some stupid fight between some of the girls!
