IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! Thanks to all of you who have already birthdayed it up to me in various outlets. A special shout to Stace and Rah for driving 4 and 6 (was supposed to be 5 but Faynella I'll explain later) hours respectively to help me celebrate it! YEAH!! They're fab.

Last night Stace and I went to Dragonfly. I had a saketini called Sunrise Over Tokyo. It was like a tequila sunrise with sake instead of tequila. I'm very wary of sake because I don't like hot sake. This was BANGIN!! It also had oj, sprite, grenadine and a cherry. DE-lish. I think I want to have at least one of those for MY BIRTHDAY!!! YAY!! 

I also found a Cuban restaurant with ridiculously cheap food. Can't wait to eat there one day. This guy from Miami who writes for the campus paper said the food is fine for 3 a.m. (it's SUPER cheap, I'm talking $1.41 for empanadas, $.94 for coffee, WHAT????) but there's another place he recommends for Cuban food. I thought this place would have pastries, too. That's what we were going there for but they only had a couple and none with my fave pastry accompaniments: cinnamon and sugar.

Back to Dragonfly. We had lots and lots and lots of sushi. The rolls there are HUGE. It was delish. Stace, the sushi hooch was in sushi heaven with her eel sauce. I don't like soy sauce. I'm also an eel sauce and wasabi girl. Miss extra mild doesn't do wasabi. But she sure did look at the GREEN finishing on her plate and taste it asking what is this before I could tell her. Who's the one with the Asian pimp?? Oh yeah. Her. We decided last night that I'm Rah's Mexican pimp. YES!!! I run this! Now eat some Mexican! "Eat some Mexican, Eat some Mexican, Rah lookin' boy." Lol. That song CRACKS. ME. UP!!

I wanna go party! Yeah!! Faynella (my name for the tropical storm bustin up Florida and Georgia for the last 8 days. Wait it's only been 2? Bah. Whatever,. YOU LIE!! IT'S BEEN 8. Okay okay. It's been 2. Haters. Were you born with that hate runnin through your veins? I just need to know.) finally seems to be gone from the area. Rah didn't get here until 6 this morning because of ridiculously heavy rain and wind. After Dragonfly Stace and I walked and rode around Downtown Gainesville a bit. It was fun seeing all the spots one of my classmates had described to me in an email about my birthday. Tonight my classmates, Rah, Stace and a couple of other people I've met here (all in the j-school) are hitting the town for my birthday. Can't wait! Yay!!! It's gonna be fabulous! Party over here! 26 baby! Alright!

I got cards from my old coworker ST, DIVA!! (THANKS DIVA!!), Stace and my mommy! Yay! Thanks guys! You rock! And Stace bought me some books for the birthdizzle and a cute bag to carry them in. And Rah outfitted my house with hotness. Did I show you my shower curtain? Too cute.
