Happiness is a warm gun

So, my birthday was mighty fine. Didn’t do much really, but that’s kinda my style.

I got calls from many of you, others left me gifts (such as Abbi’s cupcakes… Yum!), and still others I got to see in person. I thank each and every one of you. Thank you Mark and John for the Breast Buy gift certificates.

My mom called me, and as soon as I answered she broke out in singing “Happy Birthday to You”, followed by her telling me that I now know where I get my musical talent from. I couldn’t help myself when I replied, “Yeah, and so does everybody else who heard you while I had you on speaker phone…”. She asked, “Are you kidding me?”, to which I replied yes. We had a good laugh about it, and she said that it could have been really embarassing… so instead of her being on speaker phone with 1 or 2 listeners, I give her the whole world. That’s how much I love her.

Other than that, it was a pretty lax day with a little work interspersed here and there. I’d rather be at work hanging out with a few friends and do a little work, than be sitting by myself at home.

The highlight of the day was when we went to the Scottsdale Gun Club for some shootin’. Members at SGC get a free machine gun rental on their birthdays, so obviously we had to go (I missed it last year). And obviously I rented one of the coolest guns ever – the Heckler & Koch MP5. Mark and Randall came along for the thrill. Plus Randall wanted to fire off his brand new Bushmaster AR-15. I didn’t really get many pictures (ok, I took only 1 – and it’s not even of me…), but the following is what I do have.

Free Rental of MP5
This here is my sales receipt. Notice the Free rental of the MP5, 2 Free magazines,
plus 3 additional magazines so that Mark and Randall got to enjoy the experience as well.

Kills Terrorists Dead
Here we have the silhouette target from the first 75 rounds from the MP5. Yeah, it’s accurate, even at full auto.

Randall and his new AR-15
Finally, Randall enjoying the first rounds through his AR-15.

After shooting, I went for some Jack in the Box and went home for the rest of the Suns game. It was a good day. I’ll celebrate properly with the Fam this weekend, and with friends and family probably on the 24th (a joint celebration for Johnny too). Who’s in?
