Tonight, my family had planned a gathering at the Lone Star Steakhouse to celebrate my and my cousin Joe’s respective birthdays.

Everyone showed up for it (a first), including Megan, my sweet, sweetie-pie. (Sorry.) Anyway, the dinner didn’t actually go too bad.

As far as presents go, my mom made me a scrapbook that had things in it from the past nineteen years, which was nice. But the kicker was a new computer (!) that I got from my grandma. Wow, this is pretty kick-ass.

After the party, we went over to Megan’s house and watched a movie with Jake. Not bad …
