Age 30; Day Two.
It’s my second day in my thirties, and my back’s killing me. I know, I’m old. But I have a good reason.
Last night was the party to celebrate my 30th birthday, and we did it in style. With the things we love. Movies (well, a movie theater), Rock Band, and pizza. Oh, and friends and family were in attendance, as well.
As any big event in our lives, the wife and I like to do something big. So we (read: she) rented a private screening room at Coolidge Corner Theater. Seating for 45, and a huge screen.
We packed up our XBox 360, Rock Band 2, The Beatles: Rock Band, our plastic instruments and headed to the theater around 6:30 to set up. My back’s killing me is because I lugged a ton of that stuff a whole buttload of blocks since we had to park farther away than we should have.
Anyway, aside from back hurting, I feel pretty good today. We had an awesome time last night. A bunch of people from work, and past jobs, and family showed up to celebrate. We played Rock Band for a whole bunch of hours, and people that had never gotten to play before got to play. And from the talk this morning, they enjoyed it. It really is a game that everyone likes. It’s impossible to not like the game, really. I challenge you!
Getting older is a weird thing. Obviously I know I’ve turned 30, but I don’t feel any different. I honestly don’t think I’ve noticed my age at all since I turned 18. I don’t feel any older, I just feel like. Obviously I can’t do all the things I used to be able to do, physically, but it’s not like I’m in a wheel chair or anything, so that’s good.
So far, 30 hasn’t been at all bad. I rung in my new year with friends, family and gaming. What more could I want? It was a great night.
Mac Pro day is rapidly approaching. I was going to get it yesterday, but waited. I asked for Apple gift cards for my birthday, so I wanted to wait till I got those, so I didn’t spend any extra money when I could have used gift cards. So Mac Pro day has been pushed back to (I believe) October 9th, which should be enough time to allow for getting paid for the month of September, and the check clearing. I’m super psyched, and will post before and after photos once I have everything set up.
Big thanks to everyone who came last night and celebrated, and for all the generous gifts everyone gave. We’re definitely going to rent the theater again in the near future, and host another Rock Band night, since it was such a hit. Next time we won’t use Facebook to invite people though, since that seems to be uber-ineffecient.
