My 21st birthday is on the 30th of this month! I am having my party this Saturday and I'm so excited. People are actually coming!! Normally I get a lot of "maybes" and like 5 people show up. There's nothing wrong with that, I just always plan for a bigger bash then normal. I guess also I've felt a little isolated lately. I've done it to myself- constantly working, going to Picton on all my days off this summer, etc.
SO THE PARTY!
I bought a pretty nice bottle of rum that I'm going to turn into rum punch (any recipe suggestions?) I'm also stopping by the bakery after work to order two dozen cupcakes. (I think about a dozen people are coming, so we each get two!) Then I can put a little candle in mine! haha.
As far as snackies go, Joel wants to make this fig and goat cheese hor d'oeuvre that he had at a restaurant. He's going to do a test run of it today or tomorrow I think. There is a little prosciutto involved but I think it tastes fine taken off. That's going to be the nicest thing. Besides that I'm probably going to pick up some spring rolls and a fruit plate or something. Something prepared and trashy because that's really what I'm all about.
Afterwards we'll head to the market. I want to go to Zaphod's but I think there is like $6 cover. :( I don't want to go up Elgin or Bank though. I want to stay in walking distance. If everyone wants to split cabs I'd love to head up to Babylon. Saturday nights is "GRIND - Dancehall and Southern Hip Hop" :) There's live music at Zaphod's though.
My birthday wish is that Joel doesn't drink too much. He can really over do it.
