at the last minute, my parents decided to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday early since they were going to be on a cruise in the caribbean during his actual birthday. and since it’s one of those milestone b-days, i had to get him something big. i actually offered to pay for his cruise but my uncle and aunt already took care of that. So i ended up purchasing a new 42 inch plasma for my dad. it’s definitely something i’d love to have in my own home. well, actually, i’d prefer something even bigger than 42″ but now that i’m tapped out from this big purchase there’s no need to worry about that at this juncture. i took the day off yesterday to get the plasma TV before the party. spending all that cash usually makes me all lightheaded and woozy and i’m pretty much useless the rest of the day. well the wife did try to snap me out of it by taking me out for some lunch time sushi at the local kanki’s. that actually did the trick. i just love me some sushi. yeah, it’s an expensive lunch but hey, since i’m already in debt to my eyeballs anyway…
the birthday dinner at the dad’s went well. we had a great feast and he loved the new TV. and in a couple of days, he’ll be off to the caribbean. happy birthday Dad!
