And A Happy Birthday To Meeeeee! (Photos)

Me on the way to my birthday party on FridayThanks to my good friends Lola Gets and SavvyBroad I had a wonderful birthday party on Friday, featuring some of my closest friends in Washington, D.C. (and a cameo appearance by one of my oldest friends from high school, Tiffany). It all went down at Sonoma Restaurant & Wine Bar on Capitol Hill (223 Pennsylvania Ave. SE). We had wines, meats and cheese that I could not pronounce at the bougiest birthday party I've ever had in my entire life.

The Snob approves!

I Was Born In '77, Now I'm 33! Hooray For Meeee!

Tis mah birfdey. Justin Beez just wanted to say "Hootie hoo!"Today is October 8th. The day I was all kinds of born. I was born during some game of the World Series that my father's favorite team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, would go on to lose. Jimmy Carter was the President.

With that said, I'm taking the weekend off. See you Monday, snobs! Keep ya' noses up!

The review fell in the both unintentional and intentionally funny zone. It is still a source of happy pride for him to this day.

And now, here it is, preserved for all to read ...
