23 is old....

Hey everyone! It's been a while! I feel like I haven't posted a legitimate post in a month, which is probably true. So here goes (hope I'm not rusty).

This weekend was ridiculous! Friday we moved a pool table into my house. And by moved it, I mean I watched because my brothers are stronger than me. They did all the work. After that Ian and I watched the Twins game and went to bed (it was a long week). Saturday (my birthday!) I was up at 9AM, which is early for me on the weekends. I hit up IKEA with a few friends, then Noodle for lunch, and a few stores trying to find netting to use as pool pockets (no luck). I also stopped by Home Depot to get a part so I could fix our toilet. Then I headed west to hit up Sarah's engagement party. There I found out that not only was Jim in town, but Nimit too! It was great to see my college roommates in one place again. I left Sarah's early to go get a haircut (they were closed) and buy booze. Turns out, Ian was at the liquor store already, so we got stuff together. Then he went to get more ice/cups and I went in search of a tap. My older brother had a keg left over from a party, but no tap. Free keg! So I went on a small adventure. The first store didn't have kegs, the second wouldn't give me a tap without a keg. On the way I passed a billiards store (closed). Finally 30 minutes later I found a store that would rent me a tap. So I headed home to do a kick clean up of the house and relax!

The party was awesome! I think I new every single person who walked into our house except two, both of which I had heard a lot about already. We had Ian's friends from high school, his girlfriend's friends, my high school buds, college buds and co-workers. I had so much fun running back and forth between conversations, the keg, Rock Band, and Shitage (pronounced like shittage). I only wish I could have spent more time with everyone. We had a large 7 person Shitage game where over half of the people had never played. It was very confusing, but a lot of fun. At some point in the night I got a handful of cake in my face, a shot was taken (hello hangover!) and my finger blistered from playing Rock Band. Finally, around 5AM, I made it to bed to find that my now ex-friend Pat had stolen everything off my bed. All that was left was a sheet. The kicker is that he took both of my pillows! I managed to find a blanket, and a lumpy pillow but I had to use a t shirt for a pillow case.

All in all, it was a great weekend. And next weekend I'm headed to Chicago! I'm already excited.
