The weekend started with a very Happy Birthday Party for our friend Brian. He turned 30 and we all celebrated with a night filled with POKER. Once I learned how to play and was slightly advised (in the tutorial round only...of course!) I did quite well. I then had a huge pile of candy to bet away at my own free will. Unfortunately, we had to cut our night short and I decided at the top of my sugar high to donate my winnings to a couple in need, which I was sorely regreting the next morning when I was ready for more.
