No, please - please, remain in your seats. I realize your whole-hearted devotion compels you to rise and applaud, whoop, cat-call, etc., but that's really not necessary.
Oh, alright, just for a few minutes, then. If you must.
Now, on to the presents!!! Who wants to go first?
?!? What's this? You didn't get me *anything*? Really? Hmph. Well, fine. I'll find my own presents. Yeah. I'll just make a little self-indulgent list of some of my favorite things, and since it's my birthday, and my blog, you can't stop me.
First, of course, my favorite favorite thing is John. There aren't many cake versions of John out there, but I did find one:
Plus he has hands, so that makes him like the Chippendales version 3.001.
I also love my cats, Lily and Tonks.
For fun, I enjoy playing the odd video game.
Speaking of "odd":
As a voracious reader who finds excuses to use words like "voracious," I know Harry Potter will always hold a special place on my bookshelves:
How do you segue from Ghostbusters to Star Wars? With this:
Slimer and Jabba's love child.
Someone's had their eye on this one for a while:
Get it? "Had their eye on?" Eh? Eh?
See, that's a little dark lord humor for ya.
And if you thought I was serious, then as Sheldon would say...
Although I'm pretty sure he's a bit older than 36.
Still, this Wreckerator gets an "A" for effort.
Did I, though? Or did I just save the best, most wreckalicious and dreadfully hilarious Mickey cake of all for today? Hmm?
Patty J., Sarah R., Monique B., Erin M., Tiffany G., Meghann H., Nicole L., Melissa F., Natalie E., Nicole K., & Maisoon, thanks for sending in all my birthday cakes. You rock.
Before you go, I have one more *new* favorite thing to share. Something I've been wanting for a long time. Something I've been secretly working towards for months, hoping against all odds to have by my birthday. Something you just might be interested in:
But don't expect any cake. ;)
