He Rocks!

The Evil Twin, that is. He had made reservations for the Hibachi House restaurant for my birthday dinner, which is one of our favorite places. It was raining when we arrived, so the Evil Twin let me and Buddy out in front and he went to park the van. While he was doing that, I told the lady at the front desk our last name and that we had reservations at 6 pm.

She said, "Someone's already arrived using that name." I said, "That's not possible - we have a really unusual name." She said she'd look into it and let me know. I figured it was relatives of ours somehow. But I looked around the restaurant and saw a really, really good friend of ours. I looked at her and she finally saw me. I was like "What are you doing here?" and she said, "We're here for you." Ohhhhh!!!! They're the ones who used our name! The Evil Twin had arranged to have them meet us there!

I'm a little slow on the uptake, people.

So, it was our friends and their kids (their oldest son is Buddy's best friend). They had a card and a bottle of wine for me. Awwwww. I was so surprised.

Plus, I was happy that we'd get our own table and not have to be seated with random dipshits. LOL.

We had a great time, great food and later, they came over to our house to hang out for a bit.

Earlier in the day, we had gone to the DMV and it was a madhouse, but moving along okay. I finally got my driver's license taken care of and the picture came out really well. I didn't even look at it when the guy handed it to me - I was in such a hurry to get out of that place. They really changed the look of the license overall.

And now, I can rest easy knowing that when I get carded at WalMart, I can hand them a decent looking license.

(BTW, baby, thanks for last night - and the night before).


  1. So glad everything went well (and the license pic turned out good). What a loving hubby to make surprise arrangements for your birthday dinner. Hope the actual birthday DAY is great too!

    all hail the hausfrau!

  3. Congrats on a good surprise. A good photo at the DMV??? The stars are aligning for you :)

  4. A good photo at the DMV will be the birthday gift to yourself... the one that keeps on giving.

    Happy, happy birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday! It sounds like it's been a great weekend!

  6. And many more!

    David & love those hibachi places. There's one in Clarksburg at Eastpointe. I've finally figured out how to approximate the taste. This restaurant is the only place I've seen David willingly eat his veggies!

    Congrats on the drivers license pic. The pic on my Virginia license was great. My WV pics are terrible. I just renewed, and I have more chins than a proverbial Chinese phonebook.

    Hence, Curves.
