insane things that happened on Monday, August 8, 2011
- The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell below 11,000
- riots continued in London, England
- a man was shot on State and Wacker
- Kelly turned 30 at Harry Caray’s
Seriously, though. The world is in turmoil, so it was nice to take a few hours in the middle of it to celebrate a landmark birthday for a very special lady with meat and cake, cake and meat, at Harry Caray’s.
Even if Kelly refused, REFUSED, to wear the awesome tiara and “BIRTHDAY PRINCESS” sash I got for her. I figured she might not wear it, but I figured it was worth a shot.
Kelly did have this very nice thing to say on Facebook (in response to the “Happy Birthday!” message I left on her Facebook profile wall earlier):
Thanks for coming tonight! I was so excited to see you! I’m going to keep my tiara and sash safe for the day I have a birthday princess of my own. Until then, I will clean in it 🙂
Seriously, I am verklempt over this. A birthday princess of her own!
