I just turned 33 years-old yesterday, taking the day to relax and enjoy myself with a group of friends, lounging around the house and watching the entire Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy.
Watching all three films is such a nerdy event, but we spiced it up by making up drinking games on-the-fly and giving them the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 treatment. Nothing like having 10 people screaming “Look out for the giant spider!”.
Fun was had by all, tons of beer and other alcohol was consumed, none by me, and not one but TWO birthday cakes were baked and presented in my honor.
I love my Portland friends and could hardly think of a better way to grow another year.
