Nothing like seafood & a political debate to really celebrate your 28th birthday in style.
I convinced the Republican & Democrat clubs at my school to let me crash their student Presidential debate. I convinced another Nader fan at USD to participate with me, and we were allowed to answer 2/4 questions (ie, I only got to answer one of the questions). I’m not sure how many swing voters there were in the audience, but it was fun. And I got to wear my “Don’t hate the playa, hate the game” Nader t-shirt that Neil & I made. Worth it.
Neil and I went out to breakfast at a seedy diner to celebrate in the a.m., since I had class until 9:30p.m. the night of. Turns out it is the most popular place in San Diego, based on the crowd. I had a spinach fritatta, unusual fare for a highway-side diner, but delicious indeed.
When I got home from class I was so hungry that Neil took me out for a Birthday Burrito instead of the celebratory ice cream we had planned. It was also quite delicious.
My family came to visit me the week before my birthday & somehow we ended up at a seafood joint down by the San Diego marina. Luckily we started the birthday season out early & they brought me some complimentary birthday dessert.
What could possibly say “Happy Birthday” more than husband & wife matching fleece vests from the 2002 Olympics. Thanks dad! You are one-of-a-kind.
Neil fetched me out some seaweed from Coronado beach for my birthday.
But, luckily he also surprised me with this fantastic cloche.
And, just for a jog down memory lane… for my 27th birthday I made everyone rent costumes & go to a mansion in Salt Lake for a Murder Mystery party. Anyone who says I’m not a good time doesn’t know how to have a good time.
Happy Birthday Season everyone!
