All of My Friends Were There

I am extremely lucky to have many hardcore friends who didn't mind celebrating the anniversary of my birth on a schoolnight.

Cameras are great! They remember things when I don't!

Yes, folks - this is seriously the most action I've seen in months.

Thanks for coming, everybody. This should hold me over until I turn 30.

If you couldn't make it out, why not just tell me that you were there? I will probably believe you.

Sofi, you are a hot, hot drunk... I mean, birthday girl.

Thanks for a fabulous and random night, you popular thing, you!

Yeah, because that's exactly what the Internet needs. More photos of me looking like a complete idiot.

Not that I look like an idiot in that last photo, mind you. I think we can all agree that I come off pretty well in that one. But if my girlfriend asks, that's not me, okay?

Why is it that digital cameras always make me look like an uncouth inebriate? Oh, wait . . .

Sofi, it was a damn good time.

Sofi, did you drop a few pounds? you look really good.

Oh, happy birthday.

I was probably there and you just don't remember. I know I was drunk at the time, so I was probably at your party. Or maybe wearing a bathrobe-esque traditional costume and drinking outdoors in 35 degree 100% humidity. What better way to celebrate the anniversary of a birth?

Happy birthday.

Pete: I will accept that backhanded compliment. Thank you. I guess the last time you saw me, I was in full-on "I am in a stable relationship and need not impress anyone" mode. Lately I've been in "Holy shit, I could conceivably never have sex again!" mode. So yeah. I guess I'm about 10 pounds lighter these days and I intend to drop another 20 this year. As someone who recently transformed his body (congrats!), I'd appreciate any words of wisdom from you.

Seth: YUKATA!!!

it's very true - as the night goes on and the flash went off, we got more and more DRUNK beyond control.

Dear Sofi,

I was not there but will ply you with alcohol the next time I am in town.

As for that "adorable shot marred by the bra-strap" - send me a hi-res version of it and I would be happy to Photoshop it out.

While I'm doing it, I will Photoshop myself into the shot.
So see - I was there! Yes! Yes! I was!

That was a very fun night, and really nice to meet you Sofi - and everyone else.

I'm glad Matt's friends can drink. This is important.

Indeed, it's great that my friends can drink. But it's all the better that my girlfriend can drink, and drink heavily. You see, it greatly reduces the chances of me getting thrown out on my drunken ass.

Hey, great night. I'm just upset that there's no pictures of me, considering I did fly in on the red-eye from Edmonton and everything :(

Sorry, Sofi, I didn't mean it to sound backhanded. Check out my wicked forehand: You're cute.

As for losing 20 pounds, no sweat. Well, lots of sweat. I'd guess three or four months of sweat would be reasonable.

I've got some general thoughts on the matter, but why not check out the website of my friend Alex, who's the one who set out my plan for me? You can see an incredibly horrifying picture of me there.

I've been reading your blog way after the fact, but I'm glad you had a nice birthday, and yes, to echo the sentiments of everyone on your friends-list, you're super cute. Your haircut is excellent.
