The Party

Last night was Jenny’s birthday party and it was lots of fun. I don’t know why I woke up this early today… Nice food, nice people, nice music (Dirty Dancing soundtrack ;-)), and we got to one of her guests to pull his shirt up and show us his nipple piercing. Looked painful to me and can you imagine having something rip at it like a sweater when you pull it off. Au!
I got some gifts from my friends, too, an IQ training book seeing that I’m getting old (though thankfully I answered their sample questions correctly *phhhhh* and a book on how to get a job in the US (let’s see if that’s useful), a sunflower, a mug, and body lotion. Nice. 🙂

Oh I also had lunch with my dad and that was alright, too. Nothing exciting. We were at his pub and I don’t really like meeting him there as I always kind of feel in the spotlight with his girlfriend working there and not many guests around. But of course it was nice to see them again and he’s funded my health insurance for this month and the next so yay!

Oh and my birthday itself! 4 of my grandparents (one grandma couldn’t make it) came over for coffee and cake and it was same old same old. The cakes were super yummy but the stories as boring as ever but at least we managed to go without war memories for 1.5 hours. That might a new record! 🙂 Later we had dinner and that was nicer with real conversation. Haha. 🙂 But overall it was a nice day and it was good to see my mom’s parents again after all these months.

Well, the plan for today is to get my German resume up to date and improved (I’m thinking of doing it anti-chronical now seeing that my last company is much more known than my first company). I got my letters of reference scanned at an old friend’s house yesterday and I guess the German job-hunt can begin. Gotta see what’s out there. Later my friends want to go out again to some bar/club here so I might just have to take a nap before that. I’m getting old! 😉

  1. Oh well, be glad end enjoy to have so many of your grandparents around, even if the stories might be boring…And I second your last two sentences. We are going to a club tonight and what I’m gonna do now is take a nap and then have some coffee before we’re leaving!

  2. Sounds like a great birthday! I envy your for having coffee and cake with your family *sigh* nobody does that over here… and usually it’s cakes from the store 🙁

  3. Amazing that it’s always the same with those regularly retold warstories or anything related to that period. But I already tend to find it interesting when my grandpa shares his experiences (he went to the UK and later to South Virginia while being POW), sometimes I spot some sparkle in his eyes when he is obviously returning to those places in his memory. You could literally tell that he made unique experiences there and he misses those places secretly I think.

    Cheers! 🙂

  4. I’m so glad you got to have such an awesome, friends/family-filled birthday week! Be glad your grandparents are so near. I very much wish I could spend more quality time with mine. Much love.
