I woke up this morning with an aching hip. Two teeth had fallen out over night and I spontaneously started shaking my fist in the air yelling 'damn teenagers!' Yup, I'm officially old.
It's a good thing I haven't lost my flare for the dramatic, eh?
Birthday week is officially over, according to Sam. For me, it's not over until I get my birthday package from my parents which has been en route for six bloody weeks now. Canada/US post sucks. Big time.
Saturday night we had another party, this time we hosted it here at the cabin. About 20 people were here for burgers and salmon, beer and general merriment. Mary made her famous brownies which I tried to bogart but almost lost a hand in the process. Once the tequila came out, I knew it was going to be a good night. Around 10:30, Libby, Theresa, Julie, Mary, Tom and I snuck off to the Howling Dog in Fox for some dancing. Love the Howling Dog. I returned and there was still a few people left though the kegs were long dry.
The Mackeys even made an appearance earlier in the night. Today, Lance (winner of the Yukon Quest and Iditarod) and his wife Tonya and their 'agent' are heading to Hollywood. Yes, the real Hollywood. Lance has been nominated for an ESPY award. ESPN gives out awards to athletes each year and Lance is up for 'best outdoor athlete.' At the party, Tonya showed us pictures of her dress that she'll wear on the red carpet. Besides famous athletes like Tiger Woods, Serena Williams and Paton Manning, the Mackeys will meet the likes of Mark Walberg and Will Ferrell who are nominated for their sports' movies. I wish I could be there to see this lovable yet slightly rootin' tootin' Alaskan musher meet the celebs and be interviewed and photographed by paparazzi. I asked Tonya what Lance would be wearing (I was thinking he ordered some posh suit...Armani, maybe?) and she answered proudly: 'Oh, we found Lance a nice pair of black Dockers.' Love them. Love the Mackeys.
Anyway, it was a fun night with, as always, a very interesting mix of people. Sam and I didn't do much yesterday. We spent a lot of time in bed before friends came over for dinner and then we were back in bed. A perfect Sunday.
I'm going to play disc golf with BFF Richard today before a freelance assignment at 3 p.m. and card night tonight with the fellas.
I'm 30 and I'm fantabulous.
Unfortunately, there were no cameras at the party despite there being several bloggers and several photographers on hand. Here's the best I could find. This was drawn by a little boy from Taiwan, where they don't have copyright laws.
