Yesterday I turned 29. It was a good thing, I think. Today was my first day back to work after a 3-day weekend. I probably should have used the time more wisely, but somehow when it comes down to having a day off, I just want to enjoy it.

On Saturday, I went on a Wine and Herb tour with some friends. We got there later than planned, and had to leave early as one of us had to work that evening, but it was fun. We made it to 9 of the 16 wineries. This time I went more with reds rather than whites. At each stop, they gave us a small herb in a container, a snack, and a recipe utilizing their featured herb. I came home with two kinds of tomatoes, basil, chives, pepper plants, and several other things I can't remember. I guess now I can really dress up those Lean Cuisines I nuke every night in the microwave!

On Sunday, I went to see "300" with a friend. It's about a small group of Spartans trying to hold back Xerxes (spelling?) in his quest to conquer Greece. It was very bloody, but the nice thing about the Spartans is that they don't wear pants... and they have incredibly fit bodies! After that, my friends treated me to a fancy dinner and drinks.

On Monday, I went out to lunch with some friends, mowed the lawn for the first time this year, and did some shopping.


Today I went back to work. The bad thing about long weekends is that it's so annoying to have to go back. I survived, but the day was INCREDIBLY long.

Happy late birthday! I remembered it about a week and a half ago, and then realized yesterday that I had missed it.

Present will be forthcoming, but I'm not sure when it will come forth.

Happy BIRTHDAY Kate!!! I can't believe I missed it:( Boooooo Chris.

One of the dads at the karate school mentioned that he took his son to see 300 and didn't realized that in addition to the violence, there were some nude scenes.

Yeah, those guys were buff. The studio kept calling me asking me to be a body double but I was too busy (ha ha ha ha ha NOT)
