So this weekend was Jay’s Birthday Weekend. He turned 24 on Friday, March 27. Side note: Sunday the 29th was my sister Christie’s 20th birthday. I don’t think she reads this but if she is, Happy Birthday!!!
Anyways, I after scouting out many local restaurants for us to try, I decided to just do the biggest deal of them all: attempt to cook dinner myself. I’m a really impatient person when it comes to cooking, so I’ve never really tried to cook before other than my Valentines’ Day 2008 trip to NC to surprise Jay and cook pasta. That doesn’t really count though because my mom helped me prepare most of it before I left & all I had to do was the pasta part, which even I can do. So I decided to start small and I made us bacon cheeseburgers:
Yeah, it may not look super fancy, but whatever; it tasted good if I do say so myself. I even went all out and baked a funfetti cake, too. Holler.
Hell yeah the candles spell out “24”. Cause I’m that creative. Jay’s sister Heather came to hang out for a little while when we did birthday cake, which was fun. Since it was pouring outside on Friday, we decided to go see the movie, “I Love You Man”. My verdict? I really liked it and I laughed at least every few minutes. Maybe it wasn’t the best movie from that whole “Apatow Gang” but in all fairness, it’s going to be really hard to beat “40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” (my personal favorites).
On Saturday, we went out to dinner with Jay’s family at an awesome Italian restaurant in Raleigh. Afterwards, we went up to the mall because Jay wanted to buy new sunglasses with some of his birthday money. I got carded upon entering the mall by myself (I went in to use the bathroom while Jay parked). Turns out, if you’re under 18, you’re not allowed to be in the mall unaccompanied by an adult past 5pm. No one asked Jay to see his ID. Ha, and I’m the older one in the relationship. After the new Oakleys were acquired, we hit Sam’s Club to buy “real Mexican” Coca Cola. The night was finished out by an exciting viewing of “Mary Poppins,” which was choosen by the birthday boy.
Sunday we hit up the flea market because it was finally not raining. In fact, it was gorgeous outside. Two hotdogs each later, we went back home to do work – Jay on the “Lost Podcast” and me on my nuDia.tv show that I was going to re-film (the first time wasn’t very good, to be honest) while Jay & Jack recorded the podcast for Monday. After a delicious dinner cooked by Jay’s mom, I headed over to Clif’s studio to film. Jay & I took one car over to his parents’ house, so I waited around while Jay & Jack filmed their “Lost Vidcast” for this week (“Missing Jack”) and while Jack filmed his “Jack’s Rants” segment:
Aww, look at Clif hard at work! Okay, it’s a day of the week that ends with “y” the job search continues in 5…4…3…2…1…
