And let me tell you, I was SHOCKED at how many people showed up.
I expected maybe 6. Ten, if I was lucky.
But in the end a whopping 24 showed up.
We went from one table of 8 to 6 tables filled with people.
And everyone was in pyrate garb!

It was TRULY EXTRAORDINARY!
I got my dance on at The Spot and Cardiff Lounge, restoring my dance sensibility ever since the Blue Dance Nazi took it from me at Decompression SF (full story is HERE).
I’m not a fabulous dancer, but I enjoy dancing. However, you should’ve seen my birthmom dancing, SHE WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME!
I heard over and over again all night how wonderful my mom is, how incredible my mom is, how funny my mom is.
Everybody LOVED her.
I think it’s safe to say she stole the show.
My sister was there, looking beautiful and composed as always, prompting several comments about how we look nothing alike (my sister is half Filipino while I am all cracker).
Barbara was there, in an AMAZING corset, and all night long people mistook her for me. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – Barbara looks like my little sister.
My brother and sister-in-law showed up to fete me and it was nice to hang out with them for a bit without the littles distracting us.
And Scott, my birthday twin, came all the way from Napa to celebrate “our” birthday. It’s always great to see old friends and I’ve known Scott since I was in preschool.
So many more friends came and made it festive – Marina and Todd, MP (who gave me an awesome birthday card and present), Cynthia (who dances like a goddess), Kari and Brian (who just got engaged in Italy), Kevin (who let me grab his ass a little), Dante (who let me grab more than just his ass), Steve, Mark and Ariana (who make such a handsome couple), Brad (who had the BEST pirate accessory, a gold earring), Hoot (who was tons of fun to dance with), Bad Boy, Miss S, Kimberly (who gave me a bottle of Zaya rum), and Twisty.
In the end, a good time was had by all, even if we all became a little deaf dancing at the Cardiff Lounge in front of the speakers.
But the best, most funniest moment of the night was when Cynthia gave me a bag of little rubber dicks as a gift.
I got a bag of dicks for my birthday!
