I’m back from the party land. This was, no doubt, the longest and heaviest birthday celebration that I ever had. I’ve been going from drunk to wasted for a whole week, and got to the stage where my body does not accept alcohol any more. Not even a beer. I need a break for a week or so.
Big thanks to everyone who sent warm wishes, presents, and money, who called and came, who thought, and so on and so forth. I think there were well over a hundred people who congratulated me this time. I can’t tell you how awesome it makes me feel!
And of course with so many good things coming my way, there were some really special presents. Just to name a few:
- Fallout3 and Gran Turismo video games for PlayStation3. I tried both of them already and they are excellent. Fallout3 will have me exploring its world for many months to come. Gran Turismo is faster than that – I already completed all events in category C and B, started with Category A, and got myself my first Ferrari. There are many excellent cars to drive, tracks to try, and I haven’t even got into online races. Hours and days of my life will be spent staring at the TV.
- “The Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns” Blu-ray disks. These are my first blu-rays to both own and watch. I was expecting something out of a blu-ray experience, but I never expected what I got. It is absolutely stunning! I think I finally got all the bits of the setup in order – PlayStaytion3 blu-ray player, 32-inch Sony Bravia HD TV, and an HDMI cable to connect them. The results are mind blowing. It’s crisp and clear and colourful and almost 3D-like and makes me want to never ever watch another DVD again.
- Kwak beer set. And the best part of it – two traditional Kwak glasses and a wooden glass holder. This is something that I always wanted to have, but would probably never bought for myself. In a few days, when my body clears all the traces of last week’s alcohol consumption, I will enjoy a glass of Kwak at home. And now I can do it with a friend too.
There were, of course, more awesome presents, but the idea here is not to list all of them, but to show off the amazing people that I am surrounded with. Thank you all once again – it was a blast!
