I was wondering... how did all of you W's spent your 30th birthday? This is the first birthday I haven't looked forward to, and I want to go have a good time tonight.

My experience probably isn't the one you want, but I'll share it anyway. I taught two classes in the morning, took a class in the afternoon, and spent the evening, 6:30-10:30, in a film studies classroom watching a really bad movie. After that, I went home to my wife and daughter, ate a late dinner, and went to bed. Thrillsville, I know.

IJ was born on Sunday, and I turned 30 that Friday. I was completely unaware that it was my birthday until someone mentioned it to me. I think we ate leftover KFC for the fourth night in a row.

(Of course, it's probably far too late for YOU to have a similar one, except for the KFC-part.)

My wife threw me a surprise party complete with the requisite corny "old fart" gifts. But I got to see some old friends, and have a few new beers. 30 didn't bother me in the least, and I don't think that 40 will either...other than it's approaching too rapidly.

Just go have a good time, and don't focus on 30. It's just another birthday.

Kickass party at Dave & Buster's. One of my college buds turned 30 the day before I did, so we combined our parties for a big blowout. My daughter loved all the games there, and I won her a mini Browns football. I also cleaned up nicely at the skimobile game.

edit - why do I have the feeling this is going to end up an 'old fart' roll-call? ;)

Kim was visiting from New York, and she and I and my parents had a big Basque meal at Wool Growers in Los Banos, and the TV in the bar was showing Smackdown! (slashwrestling.com)

I had made a bunch of fun weekend plans, but then work got busy and I wound up cancelling everything. On the day itself, I stayed at work late. My birthday cake was a chunk of carrot cake from Quizno's. It was actually good, but it sure sounds pathetic. So yeah, that sucked. Made up for it (somewhat) the following weekend, at least. And I got a drawing, so that was cool.

I had quit drinking 4 years earlier so nothing wild. I went out for a quiet dinner with my then girlfriend (now wife) and then I went home. She gave me a really ugly pastel green golf shirt that I wore once for Sunday dinner at her parent's house. I surreptitiously slipped into the Goodwill bag many years later.

Haven't yet. Get back to me in five years. (ba-ZING!)

But my 25th was a couple of months ago, and I didn't really do a whole hell of a lot. I'd imagine 30 would be the same. Stupid gainful employment.

Happy birthday! I spent mine in grad school and that weekend we went out to a fine steakhouse and a movie. As an older member of the board, I remember not thinking I would make it to thirty. Look forward to it and revel in you experience, what has passed and what is to come.

My (then) girlfriend (now wife) threw me a suprise party for my 25th and invited everyone I knew. It was awesome.

I just turned 29 last week and she suprised me with lunch at the beach & we spent the weekend in the OC at the Costa Mesa Hilton.

I'm guessing she'll probably try to throw another suprise party for me when I hit the big trey-zed next year.

My wife surprised me with a dinner in NYC with my sister and a couple of good friends. We went to "Lucky Cheng's" which unbeknownst to me, was a restaurant/drag queen show. We ate very well and had a ton of drinks. For desert, the wait staff brought me out a chocolate pump (woman's shoe) and told me to make a wish an blow my waiter. By that time I was pretty drunk si it was hysterically funny. Then I got a "lap dance" from a 6'4" drag queen - again, thnakfully drunk but it was a good laugh. My sister, wife and friend (a woman) were all jealous (in a comical way) because most of the drag queens had better bodies than them!

We went for more drinks afterwards and then took the LIRR home.

Nine months later, we had or first child. So all in all, my 30th was a great night.

As for turning 30, my whole belief is age is just a number. Enjoy YOUR special day, regardless of how old you are!

At least I'm not the only one. OTOH, My 30th was only three years ago, so what does that say about my mind?!

Probably, the wife and kids probably got me a cake and a couple of cheesy gifts and I went to work as usual. We might have gone out for Chinese food that weekend. That's how most of mine work out. I know that sounds really sad, but I'm not big on my own birthday except as an excuse to do something with Mrs and the 4 little bergs.

A very kind friend let me use his apparel shop to host a karaoke party at which I got really drunk and really hoarse. Good times.

It was just under a year ago. My wife took me on a three-day bash in Massachusettes. We hit the King Richards Fair, took a "haunted" tour of Salem, went to a great restaurant called Cowloons (sp?) which I think was in Saugus and did some shopping in Boston. It was very nice.

My girlfriend (now my wife) treated me to dinner at Red Lobster. Then we later had some birthday cake back at my house that she had also bought me.

Unfortunately I cannot remember the gift she got me. Must have not been that great. :)

My thirtyth was pretty bad. I was trying to arrange to go part-time at work for a few months to play Mr Mom for my daughter (who went off to college last month) who had been born the previous month. So, that was the day I found out that they couldn't use me part time (I found out later that mmy boss never forwarded my request - and in fact I did work a lot of part-time that year I was off).

So that was the day I put in my two-week's notice. I also had an ass-kicking problem that I fought all day and I had another arguement with my boss as I left. (He was a stupid, petty, unknowledgeable man who I later replaced when I came back after my Sabbatical as Mr. Mom).

On the walk to the train (7 blocks) on a rainy day, a pigeon shit on me.

I stopped, got a bottle, and got drunk on the train.

Happy birthday.

Interesting fact: The Kowloon on Rt1 in Saugus is the preferred restaurant of WWE talent after doing a show in Boston, and that goes back at least as far as the mid 80s.

Not surprisingly, they're treated like royalty there.

Edited to be on topic: I'm 28.

I got Lost: Season 2 from my brother and the deluxe lego Batmobile set from my girlfriend. Then, she took me out to get hammered at the bar while she DD-ed. It was a lot of fun.

This year for the Rose Parade we did Cracker Barrel. I was too busy watching the Winter Classic Hockey Game to care about the Ducks & the Badgers. I think I only ate my fingernails during the 3rd period.
