What Did Your Mother Die Of? Three Bullets.

The birthday festivities have come to an end, and it was awesome. While the party wasn't exactly a surprise, I did not know what the plans were, so it all got exciting when a white limo pulled up and shuttled me and a few friends to an unknown location. We met up with some more friends and then took a little boat to a tiny island. Turns out the captain of the boat built himself a party refuge back in the '70s just outside the marina (about a 30-second ride), which he slowly turned into a restaurant over the years. The staff was awesome, the food was great, and the company was even better!

Oh and prior to that, we watched The Hangover II, Hanna, and the latest episode of Game of Thrones. All quite good stuff ...
