nazi pirate. 2) They let you bring alcohol with you to play. We were a little worried about that last point, since there was a little kid's birthday party going on, but the guys running the cash register said it was okay. In appreciation, we gave them each a beer. Anyhow, lots of folks showed up, including Mindy, Scott, Chi-chi, Wes, Jenn, Eric, Dave, and Nick. Mindy smoked us all at Minigolf, but I like to feel that I had more "flair". Kareem and Sara showed up at the last hole, and we journeyed on to Dinosaur Moonbase One.So, this weekend was my birthday celebration. It started on Saturday with putt-putt at Peter Pan Minigolf. This is a superb establishment for several reasons: 1) They have a statue that for all the world appears to be a |

Hey!".

I watched some anime, bought a wireless keyboard & mouse (as well as a coatrack), ate lunch at the Claypit with Colleen, hek-tor, Ryan, Lacey and Andrew, watched more anime, ate dinner at Benne Hanna with Mindy, Brendan, Nicole, Jenn, and Eric, watched more anime, and fell asleep.
And speaking of drinking, I've made several goals for my 26th year. One of them is to not drink alcoholic beverages for the entire year. I have several reasons for this, but the main reason is that it's just a lot of extra calories. I'd appreciate your support in this endeavor.
