Vlad's birthday 2010
WOW, yes, congratulation to me, and congratulation to you all, I made it to 40. Congratulation to me because I didn't do something stupid yet to kiel over, and congratulation to you all because you were able to put up with my shit and didn't kill me yet.
What a birth-week I had! It started all with preparation for a huge party at Gypsy Divers December the 18. Dave was again awesome and let me use Gypsy Divers for hosting my birthday party. Nobody went swimming in the pool, nobody broke anything, nobody got really drunk ... I guess I am getting old!
The party was fantastic, the gifts were great but little that I knew, Christine and Debbie prepared something special ... Debbie had the idea of making a skit based on the Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya sisterhood book/movie. That was a blast. I will post a video of the ceremony and party but before that, here is a little bit of an explanation about the 4 Ya Ya priestesses (by Kathy):
After the ceremony was about done, Christine had people "roast" me. That is the "...ridicule or criticize severely or mercilessly" definition not the pork roast we had a few days later. The roasters were amazing and everybody had to say mostly nice stuff. The roasters were:
After the roast, the floor was opened to any other that want to say stuff about me so Carol, Peter and Bob-the-fish had some really nice things to say.
... But most of all, at the end Christine delivered an incredible speech IN ROMANIAN! The things she said about me were so nice that I though she is talking about somebody else. Here is the english version of the speech:
After the emotional parts passed, we had a good time drinking, eating and drinking :-).
Another highlight of the evening was Mark's video that is his tribute to me and our friendship.
As usual, there are a lot of pictures so, enjoy the pictures.
