Birthday Happiness

Well, my 30th birthday has come and went, and thanks to my wife I was quite happy all weekend. We went to visit my parents, my brother and my grandparents in a whirlwind tour of about 300 miles altogether on Friday. It was nice too see them again. Not to mention the chicken and biscuits that mom cooked up. Yum.

Then on Saturday the group of friends, 18 of us, went to the Martini Italian Bistro and had some ok Italian food. Service wasn''t that great, but it was a good time out. Then we headed back to the house to meet up with everyone else to enjoy cake with pudding as frosting :) , frozen custard :) , and blackberry cider :) Thanks to everyone that came. I think everyone had a good time. We only had four bottle left of the cider, not to mention the entire recycle bin full of beer bottles that was brought independently.

Kim had gotten me some great gifts, a model rocket set, Mario 64, Lilo and Stitch collectables, and Pebbles got me a mystery machine model. The rocket set kicks ass, I have''nt had one since I was a kid. I love those things. The Mario game is a a link to my torment, when our house was broken into three years ago some crack addict teenagers stole a bunch of our stuff (~$10K) and along went the Mario 64 game that I worked for a couple of months to beat. I was at the final stage of just rocketing to the top of the castle to meet the princes, then boom the whole thing is gone. So I am now on the quest to reclaim the prize. My brother also added to my current complaicentcy with a 3D frogger game for the ps2 and I am a good deal into that as well.

As far as the job hunt goes, I am still hopefull to see some of the leads filtering back. I am now have a few that have filtered back from a couple of weeks ago. I guess that it is a slow process all around.
