Happy Belated Birthday to Me

October 29, 2008

Does anyone know how to display the date of your post? I can not seem to figure that out. In the mean time, I will just type the date at the beginning of my post. Check that out, I can solve problems.

This is a belated post to tell all about my birthday and birthday party. Yay! On October 15 I turned 22. *gasp* It was a Wednesday so Danny and I had class. That evening he took me to Macaroni Grill. mmmmmmmmm. I love that place. I do a create your own pasta and pretty much make the Pasta Milano except I take out the mushrooms (yuck) and put in broccoli (yum). Danny ate a really delicious and spicy Sicilian 4-cheese Ravioli thing. I opened presents too! I got Sleeping Beauty of DVD and Alfred Hitchcock's Master Peice collection. It includes a bunch of his movies including all the Jimmy Stewart ones, The Birds, Psycho, Topaz, Trouble with Harry, etc. I'm super excited to watch the ones I haven't seen before.

The following Saturday we had some friends over for a birthday party. We had so much fun! We did a beanbag toss and a pin the ____ on something. For us it was Pin the Headlamp on the Toad. We all had a great time.

We finally carved our pumpkins last Saturday. Danny put the Dark Mark (from Harry Potter) on his. I carved Hitchcock's profile on to mine. And it keeps loading my pictures at the beginning of the post. I don't know what's going on.

I am excited for my Halloween costume! I am going to be Tonks, from Harry Potter. This means I get to have purple hair! Awesome! Danny is going to be Professor Lupin, also from Harry Potter. Last night we went to DI and found Danny an old worn suit coat. We are going to a Halloween party hosted by one of our friends. I look forward to it.

As far as school goes, both of us keep really busy. I have so many things due in November that it is completely ridiculous!

Work for me is starting to get busier and busier. Danny's is pretty much the same. Lucky guy.

Oh, I have also registered my classes for next semester. I do not anticipate changing them much, if at all. So as of now, I will be taking Masterpeices of English Literature (for a GE but I think it will be awesome anyway), Behavioral Neurobiology, Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psych: Adolescence, and Sensation and Perception. I am really excited for these Psych. classes. I am finally away from the required ones and I get to take the ones that pretain to my concentration and interest. My concentration is Behavioral/Cognitive Psychology and all my elective psych classes will be from the Clinical Psych cluster. So exciting!!!

That is pretty much it in our little world right now. I will post Halloween costumes pretty soon!

You guys have the coolest pumpkins I've ever seen. I say you both drop out of school, move back to Texas, and become professional pumpkin carvers!
Looks like you had a lame birthday, I mean, I wasn't there, so it was clearly lacking! :) Really it looked like fun and I'm still amazed you found that many decorations related to Mario Galaxy!
Miss you!!

Of course I will post pictures of our costumes! In like..a month. ;)

Alex- Thanks! I'm surprised you're not more horrified by Danny's pumpkin. I would love to drop out of school and move back to Texas. Except, Danny can be the professional pumpkin carver. I would open up a silly tshirt shop. And I wish you could come to my party. *sigh* It was fun. Most of those decorations we made. Danny used a cool poster printer at work for the big stuff. Miss you too!

Looks fun!

Pictures always post at the top. To move them, as you are writing your post, on the top right of the box you type in, is an "edit html" tab. If you click on that your picture will just show up as code, which you can then highlight and copy and paste back into where you want it in the text.

As for the date, when you are signed in, go to the "customize" part of your blog, and click on the "settings" tab on the left side. Then click on formatting, and the second thing down is date formatting. Viola!

Can't wait to see the costumes. Cute idea....I can't ever figure out good costumes.
