Yesterday was my good friend Nick's birthday, and he was 32. Nick was my best man at my wedding, and I've known him a few years short of forever. Nick is also Greek, and in true Greek tradition, the gig was a blast and there was more food than anyone could be expected to eat, but that didn't stop us from trying.
Jess and I ate light meals for the early portion of the day, and that was a good call. We ended up stuffing ourselves at the party, and the cake (chocolate on chocolate) was amazing too. I saw a bunch of Nick's friends and relatives whom I hadn't seen in years, and toward the end of the night we played this silly (but fun) golfing game on his 32,768" humungous-screen TV. I mean this thing (counting the base) was as tall as I am standing, and around 6' wide.
I kicked ass at the game - beginner's luck, and ended up at -2 (it turns out that lower scores are better in golf) and the other people were +6, +14, and +34 *cough*. Those of us who were not playing (Jess, and Allie (Nick's wife)) were less than enthused about the game. Jessica compared it to "watching paint dry". Well I didn't think it was THAT bad.
All in all I'd say we slammed over 3000 calories for the day, so today we have a bike ride lined up to try to burn some of it off. It's a good excuse to ride at least.
