Dan Jones's Birthday Extravaganza
10 September, 2004
63 years ago, on 7 December 1941, Pearl Harbour was
bombed. 38 years later, to the day, on 7 December 1979,
a boy called Dan Jones was born in a small hospital in Montreal.
Coincidence? I THINK NOT. We celebrated this joyous
occasion (my birthday, not Pearl Harbour) by going out to
eat at Haveli's Indian Restaurant, in the Byward Market. Afterwards
we went bowling at the quintessential MacArthur Bowling Lanes.
welcome to haveli's!
it was a small crowd, but an enjoyable dinner.
it's so great to be 25!
hey, doesn't this guy live in gatineau or something?
i'm not exactly sure what's going on here.
the obligatory photo of
arash about to eat.
it's not just martin who can post photos like
one of them is looking at me taking his picture.
the other one is telling him that they should
skewer me and cook me in vindaloo sauce.
heyvooning a present:
a glow-in-the-dark, made-to-scale 3-D puzzle
of the petronas
towers in kuala lumpur.
meanwhile, rené looks on jealously.
welcome to cosmic bowling!
kam's always happy to come school y'all in bowling.
nays warns shameem before he
makes the mistake of taking a
andrew is the MASTER of the orb of power!
(I asked him to pose for this)
kam's also happy to school y'all at arm-wrestling.
...but annali was the undisputed
women's arm-wrestling champion.
(and the undisputed one-on-one
arcade racing champion)
(i'm probably gonna get beat for
posting this picture)
"Brian, is that an orb of power growing
on your shoulder?"
"No, that's just my mojo."

yours truly, after getting my winning streak
wiped out by a computer error.
awwwww... so cute!
homa and andrew, chillin'.
ben, and his triple-X score.
in the neighbouring lane, sham's double strike
in the final frame won him first place.
homa had an unquestionable lead for most of the
game, but rené caught up with her in the end.
aref and his supreme court posse
appeared out of the blue!
cell phone antics.
socializing after the game.
In summary, a fun time was had by all - the dinner
was filling and quite excellent, the bowling was great, and
we even capped the evening with a monstrous snowball fight
(not pictured). Rumor has it that Kam schooled y'all at snowballs.
A rematch is definitely in order.
