I had a good birthday this year. Turned 24. Was at work. The IDD girls threw me a party. And then people gave me so much food, so we had like an impromptu merienda party. Had dinner at home. Went to Ponti with the girls. Got a Magic 8 Ball. Then drove to Caylabne with Tim (it was his birthday too!), Carl, Des, Ludee. It wasn't great there, but the roadtrip was fun. "I come from the putik." And waking up to "omg, where are we?"
