Apparently, my by-inviation-only birthday party caused a few hurt feelings Friday at work. What initially started out as a 4-5 group get-together, turned into a 28-30 invited-people only par-tay! Friday morning someone came to me and told me two people had their feelings hurt they weren't invited (One girl I can't stand, as much as oldlady on her bad days, the other girl is her BFF, so I thought) I went ahead and invited the BFF and told her I just didn't like the stupid girl and didn't want to deal with her after hours. It's my party. My rules. Duh! Then, as I was leaving someone else pulled me aside saying another coworker had come to her crying saying everyone was going but her. Sigh. Fuck. I honestly just didn't think she would want to come. So, I invited her, too. And her husband.
Last night, was a blast. 22 people showed up. It was awesome. I have never had a big birthday bash, but this was pure drama-free fun. Everyone was drinking and bowling. Frugal me, even went online and printed out coupons for $2 off each admission. HaHa! I told them to use it and consider it a beer on me! Everyone honestly had a good time AND stayed the whole time! It was from 11:30-2. We all got there around 10:30 to get in line. We had 5 lanes rented out. I am so glad it went well. I didn't get home until 3 am, but I had so much fun I wasn't even really tired.
I made cupcakes (if you had them you would know why I make my own!) and another girl made cupcakes (mine were so better!) that we ate at work all day long. The night ended however with me not having blown out a single candle. This year I remain wishless. In previous year's I never got what I wish for, so this year, life shall give me it's wish. I will await, open handed. Let's see what the next 12 months has in store for little ole me.
