Woot. We went and bowled and there was a mob, and it was excellent. I spent the evening in a whirlwind of going from lane to lane seeing how people were doing, being a little out of it and a little in it, and just having a great time. Thanks all who were there :)

And they announced my birthday over the P.A.! “On lane n, is Steve, who turns 14 today. And over on lane 55 is Chris, who is 30!” Heh. Being pointed out in the same announcement as a 14-year old... that’s the way to feel old :)

But it was a helluva way to turn 30, and I loved every minute.

Sorry to the people I missed in the invites. :-/

Oh, I bowled a 119, a 125, a 155, and was well on my way to another >150 game when they turned off the lanes at 11. I need to bowl more often, and skip the “relearn bowling” phase... Maybe get my own ball and shoes or somethin’.

Hey, Chris! Happy birthday from somebody ten years older than you! Don't worry, the 30's are survivable!

I will add that my legs are sore from bowling. Definately something I need to do more.

FYI, I was the one who snitched to the DJ. :)

Ah, I was wondering about that.

My gaming social group has a pact, a treaty... they refer to themselves as signatories of this thing, where going to birthday dinners, no one tells the waiter that it's a birthday. I keep telling them I'm not in it, but I also don't tell the waiters it's their birthdays. So this worked out quite well, for me. Getting applause on my birthday is definitely fun. (I'm reminded of a TMBG concert some years ago, in the Oprheum...)

I'm glad you were enjoyed it. :) I'd been wondering why nobody else had done the same, or if perhaps someone had and I was merely duplicating their effort. Now I know. :)
