Birthday Fun?

Now that the dust has settled, let's recap the few things I did this past week. On Wednesday night I had dinner with a friend and her boyfriend.. correction, I _cooked_ dinner for a friend and her boyfriend. It was something very simple (read: pasta and chicken, haha), but the main feature was the chestnut cake they brought me. Yummy! There are only a very selected few that actually enjoys chestnut cakes, and the fact I still have some cake in my fridge should be obvious that these two weren't big fans either.

On the actual day of my birthday, I went out with a broker to Ubon near my work. Even though it's a bit sad not to spend it with friends (and to be honest, I have a very limited social circle here in London), at least I was enjoying over-priced Japanese food.

Now on Friday.. I _was_ going to have dinner with some people, until they bailed on me one by one throughout the day. It got to a point where I just cancelled dinner and was planning on a quiet evening at home. That was until I received a call from Kent, who needed some help with his admission video to an art college. The catch was having to travel with him to Croydon where another mutual friend lives and she was supposed to help him with the video also. Why I agreed to that crazy idea, is still beyond me. I ended up not doing anything (to be honest, all he needed from me was the software to put it together.. why did I go all the way there..), not to mention I spent the entire night sleeping on the couch in the fetus position.. oh well, can't really complain because I did agree to go. Nobody twisted my arm and made me do it..

In any case, at least I was with some people this year.. otherwise I'd probably be more depressed than usual during this time of the year. Thanks for those who called - you know who you are. :)
