Shabu Dog


My birthday got even better =D

Dad bought burritos for the whole department *TASTY home made ones from a hole-in-the-wall Mexican food you know its good* and Ken (my boss) bought me a cake that had candles that said "19" on them and they sang and we ate cake and it was tasty and I was happy =)

Ken and his wife bought me a silver and gold bracelet with hearts on it. It's really cute, although it obviously can't replace the one Tav gave me, it matched my outfit I was wearing yesterday so I was happy *wiggles*

They also had a card for me but they forgot to give it to me, lol ah well.

After work I went over to June's house for a steak dinner...mmmmm rare top sirloin *drools*

Also on a really bizarre note:

My dad's a marketing strategist so his job is to come up with ways to better sell something/ help a company become more efficient and improve how a product is viewed by the public/introduced to the public. People are always asking his advice on stuff, and a friend of his has a friend who invented a new kind of skateboard. Its so cool! Its like if you were to take a skateboard and a rollerblade and combine the two. Its basically a skateboard, that has a pivoting front end so you steer by turning your foot rather than leaning, and get this....the wheels are in-line. 0_o

Hard as hell to ride but April was riding it pretty well there for awhile, and once you get going its the coolest thing ever! The guy gave dad one so he can try it out..

Well, dad called the Rollerblade company and pitched the product to them, so pretty soon you might be seeing a new Rollerblade product and/or genre of skating =)

Last night, gearpony and I got ice cream and went to see Van Helsing. My opinions are under the cut, beware of spoilersCollapse )

Anyhoo, thanks again everyone for the birthday wishes. =)
