The Birthday Weekend...

Since Blondie is being stubborn (to put it nicely :), I'll fill you all in on "The Birthday Weekend". You owe me Blondie.

Lessons learned:
1) Sweetie J often claims she is President of the Blondie Fan Club. IT'S TRUE!
2) Bartenders that seem mean to begin with often rock after a few beers.
3) We get more free drinks here in SF, than we ever did in the DFW metroplex.
4) Sweetie J makes a MEAN FRIED CHICKEN!
5) Party C makes MEAN BROWNIES!
7) Party C became the official Vice-President of the Blondie Fan Club.
8) I think that makes my title of the Blondie Fan Club "groupie".

On Friday, Blondie met me a little early, and we headed off to Union Square to get some drinks (i.e. about 5 beers and a shot). Bbbb met us there and imbibed with us for a bit. When it was time to head over to Sweetie J's for aforementioned fried chicken, we asked for our check at which point the bartender gave us all free shots (#2, #3 above).

On our walk to Sweetie J's, we got distracted. Mostly by Blondie showing off his Unabomber impression. Bbbb and I followed about 15 feet behind him and watched people practically dunk under cars to avoid Blondie.

Then we got distracted again as we walked through Chinatown. We got distracted by a bar and had to seriously talk ourselves out of stopping for "just 1 more drink".

Then finally! Sweetie J's!!!! Some of the best food I've ever eaten (par for the course at her house). Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, cornbread, corn on the cob, homemade strawberry shortcake. Basically, "Heaven on a Plate". Or "Fried Chicken of Heaven". Or "Heaven in my belly".

Sigh. Can it be Blondie's birthday every weekend?

Then it was Saturday. The Actual Birthday. Bbbb picked us up and we enjoyed some tamales at the Farmer's Market. After the FM, Blondie and I hit the TacoBell/KFC (b/c god knows we hadn't eaten our weight in fried chicken on Friday night) for some grub. Bbbb showed back up around 3 pm with "presents" (#6 above). Party C joined us shortly thereafter with "presents" (#5 above) which made her title in the Blondie Fan Club official (#7 above). Needless to say, we got a little messed up and Blondie went to bed EARLY and SICK and A BIT GREEN.

All in all, a success! Thank you everyone who helped celebrate Blondie's Birthday! You all are rock stars!


P.S. I'd like to acknowledge Sweetie J's roomie for giving us the term "B Unit". Everyone needs a "B Unit" in their life.
