One of Jeff and my favorite video games is a game called Pain.  It’s this crazy game where you use the character and slingshot them around town, trying to hit and damage as many things as possible.  The more damage, the more points you get.  It’s really sick and twisted, yet oddly satisfying.  They have a new feature where you can edit the shot and change camera angles.  Jeff is now having too much fun editing his game clips.  It’s the film maker in him coming out!

I have decided to try to milk my upcoming birthday for as long as I possibly can.  This weekend we started the first weekend of the festivities.  I told Jeff that I shall require much cake and birthday well-wishes so let’s get started.  I love my birthday.  He said that once I hit 30, I won’t enjoy it as much but I don’t think that’s possible.  I was reminiscing a bit the other night.  It seems so strange to be turning 28.  I still feel like I’m 21, or 22, playing “adult” like a child would play dress up.  How long do you feel that way?  Until you have kids?

Jeff took me on my annual trip to Benihana’s on Sunday.  I’ve been going there for my birthday for the past 5 or 6 years.  I love that place!!  I especially love when they take the rings of the onion and stack them on top of each other.  Then they pour water (because open flames have been banned) into the volcano shaped onion and it starts to steam out.  I don’t know why, but that really amuses me.  I guess it’s the little things in life that I appreciate.  We also had our picture taken there, which I have in a little frame.  I’ve been trying to get on there website to download it but it’s not working.  I guess I’ll just have to add it later.

On Wednesday I’m going out to dinner with Mrs. Kitty.  I can’t wait for that.  I just have to make sure I wear comfy pants.  Not only so we can eat a ton of junk, but because I always end up laughing my ass off and my stomach ends up hurting from laughing so hard.  Good times!!!

Saturday we’re planning a gaming event.  I love getting together and letting my inner geek come out.  Although according to my brother, it’s not so much an inner geek as much as just a geek.  I was trying to explain the board game that we play and I was using small words but he still seemed a bit confused.  Maybe it is more complicated than we think!!  It’s just second nature to us now.

On Sunday, I’m finally going to get to go to Fogo de Chao.  I really thought we were going on Valentine’s Day, but a birthday dinner there would be just as good.  I’ve been told it’s a food coma, which made me start thinking that I’ll be going on a diet on Tuesday.

I’m not sure what I’ll be doing on my actual birthday, other than work.  I was going to try to take the day off and go to Disneyland but I’m not sure who to go with.  Most people have to work that day.  Either way it should be a great day!!  🙂

Saturday we had our 2nd Annual Arkham Horror event.  For those of you unfamiliar with this game (as I’m sure most of you are clueless about it!!), this is a co-operative board game based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft.  This is the guy who followed Edgar Allan Poe, so it’s some scary stuff!!  He has a pretty warped mind!!  This is the first board game that I have ever played that is completely co-op, meaning either we all win or we all lose.  Yes, the board can kick your butt and it does on a regular basis!!  Here are some lovely pictures from the event…..

The setting for the party.  Yes, that is a big oak wine barrel in the foreground.  The only way to party!!

A close up of the game. Confused yet??? 🙂

We were able to win both games that we played.  Horray!!!  Each game takes about an hour per player, so it is an all day event.  Yes, I realize that we are geeks and I’m ok with that!!!

I happened to be First Citizen in each game.  That means that even though it’s a co-op game and we all won, I was able to kick the most butt.  Take that, boys!!!  However I think it was rigged a little bit because Jeff brought Witchwood and Scarecrow beer as the prize, and I’m not a big beer drinker.  Oh well.  I still get bragging rights!!!

Some yummy treats.  I think this is why the guys like it when I play!!
