Birthday again
As I have mentioned before, my 35th birthday was on November 20. Next day, j_b, jigenm4c, Sandy and Bas visited me, and brought a cake, decorated with Trogdor the Burninator (Trogdor is the working name of my project), ASCII teapot ( C(_)/ , my nickname is "teapot" wherever it's not "abelits"), and "С днем рождения, Саша!" ("Happy birthday, Alex!" in Russian, translated for them by dk379. The cake was really tasty, and it looks like everyone had good time despite a horrible mess that I had in my apartment. Sandy gave me a B&N gift card (thanks -- will need to use it soon), with another "Happy birthday, Alex!" in Russian.

We walked around in the yuppified area around my home, visited a Japanese restaurant (sushi that I have ordered, were great, and others seemed to be happy with everything they have ordered, too, and two waitresses sang "Happy birthday to you"). I think, it was Bas who have noticed a pretentious-looking building with "International Villa" sign, and said that it needs "in" at the end.

Later I have met with j_b and jigenm4c again, demonstrated my level of suckage at arcade games, we went to get some donuts, and j_b was very impressed with a big Krispy Kreme donuts making machine, that for some reason he had never seen before.

j_b went to pick up his girlfriend, I have driven jigenm4c to Boulder, and returned back to Denver.

Later I have found a message on the answering machine, with mindslide singing "Happy birthday to you" in her pretty voice, and wohali made me this ASCII teapot:

         _,(_)._
    ___,(_______).
  ,'__.           \    /\_
 /,' /   HAPPY     \  /  /
| | |  BIRTHDAY    |,'  /
 \`.|    ALEX          /
  `. :           :    /
    `.  from Joan :.,'
      `-.________,-'


j_b had posted photos.

Thanks, everyone :-))
