Birthday Roundup

Things turned out wonderfully on my birthday, thanks to my lovely and very caring wife. First we had dinner with some friends at my favorite place for pizza (The Original Cottage Inn), and after that Ben, Kyle, JP, and I went to the Improv Inferno.

The Inferno is new to downtown Ann Arbor, and it was funny, not stupendously so, but still a good time. As it was my birthday I was called up on stange to be a part of the fun, and they improved a date between me (played by one of them) and one of them at Wal-Mart. Chuckles were heard due to my announcing of our band name (The Naughty Frogs) and because of the words on my birthday tee-shirt, "Men who change diapers change the world."

After the improv place we didn't really have any plans, so we ended up at Digital Ops, which is a geek-haven. They have a bunch of computers in a small dark room, and they're all networked together so you can play games with your friends. We played a bit of Warhammer 40K (which was too complicated for a 'drop-in' type game, at least for me), and then we switched over to a first-person shooter, Counter-Strike. We had a good time hunting each other down on this game.

After that, it was time for departure. I was quite tired, as I usually go to bed at 9:30 or so and it was now 11:15, so I was happy to get home and to bed. It really was a great time, and it'll now be the yardstick by which I measure my future birthday adventures.

I think downtown Ann Arbor is your quintessential downtown of all the cities I've visited.

It's quite a nice downtown, plenty to do, and plenty to stumble upon when you're not sure what you'd like to do. I'm glad we've been able to locate ourselves nearby (without having to pay the crazy Ann Arbor real estate costs).
