21 years and counting...

So, yesterday was my birthday. Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes! And a special thanks to everyone who helped me out yesterday (Mom, Dad, Marianne, the nice policeman, the loverly friends, and the boyfriend).

To fill everyone else in on what happened...My wallet was stolen yesterday. In a moment of not being careful, I turned away from my purse to mess with my iPod in the Foggy Bottom metro station yesterday and some creep just reached in and took my entire wallet. I lost a good amount of birthday money, all my credit cards, and the absolute worst license. The money was replaced by the giver (Thank you again, Marianne!) and the cards were all cancelled (most of which were not activated so he couldn't use them anyhow. But, my license, my dear proof that I am in fact 21 years old, was taken away from me forever. Which meant I couldn't do anything I had planned that night and I can't celebrate how I wanted to on Friday.

It's okay though. Things could be far worse. The bastard could have tried to use my cards and run up huge bills or I could have put more money in the wallet. So it's okay, really. I was bummed all of yesterday and cried a lot, but I'll just have to celebrate my birthday when I get my replacement license in a week or so.

I still had a legal drink though, thanks to the server at Macaroni Grill who felt sorry for me and accepted my expired passport as proof of age. What was my first drink? A Heineken. Tasty. Haha.

Okay, that's all. No knitting news for now. Just working on some socks and finishing a hoodie. I'll post about those later on.

I'm so sorry Jenn! But happy birthday never the less! I'm glad that you were able to at least have one drink!

Oh no! Big hug! You poor thing and it had to happen on your birthday, too.

Hopefully, your Monkey package will arrive soon to cheer you up.
