I turned 33 yesterday & it was an epic celebration!
The night before, a quiet drink after work with the girls turned into a seven hour alco-thon with me & the guys left standing (barely) at the end of the night. I managed to avoid tuning into a pumpkin by getting home at 11:45pm.
My 33rd birthday was spent with a rude reminder of why I don’t get drunk very often! Vomitous wretching followed by a throbbing headache & a strange sense that I may pass-out from alcohol poisoning at any moment….that was all before 9am.
Jay’s pressie hasn’t arrived yet (snail mail…) so I opened my pressie from my Mum – a Polar GPS to hook into my Polar heart rate monitor!!! Now I can track my distance! My girlfriend Tam got me a personalised signed copy of a book ‘Brinn; War in her Veins’ from the author Jotham Kingston! Mandy & Neen’s pressies are on the way.
Considering the epic weekend Jay had last week, it was nice that he wasn’t upset with me that I crawled into bed in the wee hours of my birthday! But he did think it was funny that I was in such a mess & was worried that I wouldn’t recover in time for our momentous dinner reservation at Quay in the evening.
The super luck department had it in for me though, as Tim & I had a concall with a customer in Hong Kong where we kept getting kicked off the conference bridge and had random bursts of uncontrollable laughter over the silliest things. I think we may have still been drunk.
One of my team members James left a nice surprise on my desk! Chocolate. I ate 5 squares of the Cadbury Crunchy. All I kept thinking is Michelle Bridges would be disappointed.
I left work and went and ate at the Broadway Sushi Train for lunch. I made the brilliant discovery that edemame is a fantastic hangover cure!
I went to see my hairdresser Elly at Stevie English for a fringe trim & birthday blowdry (for free!!!).
Then I picked up Harley from doggy daycare and Jay from work and we got ready to go out for a fabulous dinner!
The view is amazing. I’m going to write a separate post on the food, it really deserves it! But I did have the most amazing dessert I’ve ever eaten in my life; the Jackfruit Snow Egg
So, as you can see I did have a very eventful birthday. A little too much drinking, a nice reminder that I really am too old for drunken late nights on a school night, but really a nice day where friends & family made me feel special and I forgot I was on a healthy clean diet…for a day & a night…
Here’s to the next third of a century!
