Me & My Muse – Day 1497: Birthday Aftermath

With my birthday over, it is now time to relax and take it easy today. Before we do that, I would like to recap on what I did for my birthday. Yesterday and last night in particular.

First all, the morning.  My friend came over in the late morning to celebrate me and my brother’s birthday.  We opened his cards and presents.  My card had a guy named Pete, and the joke was to enjoy my birthday “for Pete’s sake”.  The present that I got was a book called Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand.

After the presents, I played more of my Fantasy Life game on my 3DS.  My brother played more Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and my friend played some Pokémon on his 3DS.  We then got lunch at McDonald’s and watched more Continuum on the PlayStation 4.

When that was over, we played the new game that my brother got from my friend for his birthday: Dragonwood.  After learning the game, we all played a round, and I ended up winning.  My score was tied with my friend, even with the bonus points of having the most monsters captured.  But in the event of a tie, the one with the most captured monsters wins, so I got the victory.  My friend then left, since me and my brother were getting ready to leave to have dinner.

Next of all, the dinner. I had dinner at Genji Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar with my brother and my parents.  I had the cupid roll, which was eel, avocado and creme cheese quick-fried in tempura batter, with BBQ eel sauce, spicy mayo sauce and green onions. I also had the surf and turf roll, which was a shrimp tempura roll with layered beef tataki on top, drizzled with wasabi mayo sauce and sprinkled with green onions.. My dinner was Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail with fried rice and cooked vegetables. The dinner came with a bowl of onion soup, a salad with ginger carrot dressing, the main course, and a dessert, which was green tea ice cream. Since it was my birthday, the Genji staff sang “If you’re happy and you know it” in Japanese, and gave me a slice of cheesecake drizzled in chocolate syrup. Overall, the dinner was amazing.

After the dinner came the cake and ice cream. The cake was a chocolate cake with buttermilk chocolate frosting from Meijer. After my family and grandparents sang “Happy Birthday to You”, I blew out the candle with my brother, and we all ate cake and ice cream. I had a scoop of chocolate truffle and a scoop of vanilla.

I then had couple gifts from my sister. All of them were pretty nice. Two kit kat bars, two Snickers, two Twixs, two Butterfingers, and a $25 Mastercard gift card.

For the cards, I got one from my sister (A card with a saying that my card was special and that I could keep the envelope too). The one from my parents was a boy with a red cape.

Overall, my birthday was fun…

Time to end this now.  I will be enjoy my day, attending church and getting some shopping done afterward.  I will then enjoy the remainder of my day after that.

Today’s high is going to be 81 degrees and the silver lining is being able to relax today.

To those of you who like relaxing after your birthday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I hope you enjoyed your birthday, Kyle.  I know I did.  Thanks for the presents!  I hope you liked mine!
