For their birthday, most people get a party. I get a Carnival.

January 19th, 2006

Yes. It is my birthday.

And this is the 23rd Carnival of the Badger.

(The Carnival is significantly younger than I am, viagra sales cialis by the way.)

Before we get to the gifts, cialis usa how about a few party games?

Jenna gets us started with a round of pin the tail on the donkey.

Over on the left side of the room, our friend Xof is beating a pistol-shaped pi?±ata . (Or maybe it’s a dead horse-shaped pi?±ata, it’s hard to tell from here.)

Aaron wants us all to join him for a less traditional party game of cops and robbers. (Aaron has always been a little unusual.)

It’s just about time to sit down and cut the cake, but Dr. Bear seems more concerned with the seat everyone else is trying to take than he is with taking a seat himself.

Now everyone is singing Happy Birthday (except Fred who would rather recite a lovely poem).

Finally, it’s time to unwrap the loot:

From Uncle Jim I got a new ant farm. I just love educational toys.

Oddly enough, Nick’s present AND Steveegg’s gift are both wrapped in the same crappy paper.

Brent was nice enough to give me a card AND a present.

Mike had to leave a little early. Apparently he need to go celebrate another guy’s birthday. Somone named Martin, I think.

The one present I didn’t get was cash. Although my buddy Grumps pointed out that lots of other people got some, even though it wasn’t their birthday.

But my favorite gift of all is from Patrick. It’s a beautiful little video that almost moved me to tears. In fact, I’d say it’s definitely going to make Jim Doyle cry.

Of course, the two most popular kids didn’t come to my party (as usual).

Well, it’s my party so I’ll pry if I want to. I decided to go and peek in their windows and see what they were up to.

Instead of attending my sorry soir?©e, our head cheerleader, Jessica, chose to do some school work.

And Charlie, our beloved class president, decided to go raise a bunch of hell over at someone else’s party.

Well, thanks for coming everyone. Before you go, be sure to grab a party favor from me on your way out.

Disappointed that I didn’t tell you more about each individual post? Sorry, I just thought this should be a surprise party.

    You should’ve said something! I could’ve brought more beer.
