So it was my birthday last week. Another year older. Jeannie flew into town from LA for my birthday (well, that and to work two weddings) and Issa was determined to go out to a fancy restaurant for my birthday dinner. I was all, "How bout this [not fancy] restaurant?" And she was all NO, THIS DAY IS NOT ABOUT YOU, WE GO FANCY PLACE. And Issa can be scary sometimes so I complied as she ordered me to DRESS UP FANCY.
So I came home on Wednesday and put on some fancy clothes and the Jester Three met up to go have a nice birthday dinner together and to catch up. When they first came to UT, it was pretty much the three of us hanging out all the time. Unfortunately, as we got older, we could never make time for just the three of us to hang out, what with moving to other cities and them having significant others.
So on my birthday, it was just nice for the three of us to chat about life over a nice meal and then some drinks at a new (and, as it turns out, uppity) lounge after. The whole evening was very casual- I suppose a sign of age that I no longer wanted to go out to a club and have a crazy celebration and whatnot. And you know what? It was one of the best ways to spend my birthday.
It's been over a decade since I've known them, practically one third of my life now. Through the ups and downs, distance and time, it's good to have friends who will always be around.
Donny and Roz made an appearance at St. Genevieve after for a drink with us as well.
Halloween rolled around and I decided to head out in my unfinished Dr. Horrible costume. A handful of people recognized me when we were out and about and I was pretty happy. The lab coat is size medium, but it fits like an extra large- next year I'm going to try to source a better lab coat and throw on an insignia while I'm at it.
