Had it not been for seeing the artcar of a friend (who is notorious for never going out to eat) in the back parking lot, where the restaurant was pretty much the only thing open on a Sunday night, the surprise party might have been a complete surprise. As it was, I only figured it out 5 minutes before, so it was still pretty great. And seeing all the people there just made my day. I felt the love.
And the unagi was delicious as well.
thanks to everyone who sent me birthday emails or LJ posts or phone calls as well...You all know who you are. :-)
