A Few Of Jen's Favorite Things

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Loyal henchpersons, today is my birthday.

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.

[big grin]

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:

I should probably point out that John looks better than this. Much better.
Plus he has hands, so that makes him like the Chippendales version 3.001.


I also love my cats, Lily and Tonks.

They also look better than this.


For fun, I enjoy playing the odd video game.

Speaking of "odd":


Here, I'll help you out. It's supposed to look like this:






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:

The most depressing HP design ever.


Let's not forget some of my favorite movies!

Duuude. Is this really a Ghostbusters cake? Because *I'm* "not ready to believe."


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 now some of my favorite shows:

Just seeing if you're paying attention.

And if you thought I was serious, then as Sheldon would say...

Heehee!

After yesterday's nurse tribute, it seems fitting to have a Doctor shout-out:

Although I'm pretty sure he's a bit older than 36.
Still, this Wreckerator gets an "A" for effort.
("Astoundingly apathetic.")


At this point you're probably wondering where the Disney cake is, since you know I love Disney. "Maybe she used them all up in that awful Mickey post," you're thinking.

Did I, though? Or did I just save the best, most wreckalicious and dreadfully hilarious Mickey cake of all for today? Hmm?

"O Mickey, you're so fine,
Your unibrow just blows my mind.
Hey Mickey!"


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.


WAIT!!!

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:

A new blog.

Yes, really.

In fact, it's SO new the virtual paint is still wet, but if you enjoy my inane nattering here on CW, then odds are you might enjoy them over there, too.

Click here to check it out.

But don't expect any cake. ;)

I LOVE the bazinga cake! I want one for my birthday!!!

Oh, and happy b-day Jen :D:D

A Girl In Her Kitchen said...

I can believe I didn't think of the Bazinga cake first! Since my in-laws call it the Sheldon Show, I think I'll need to make this one.

Happy Birthday Jen!!! I don't know about anyone else but it said page not found!!

Gary said...

I'm pretty sure John also has a head, which can be a good thing sometimes.

The fourth cake must be for a Death Eaters party. They're lynching Harry Potter and three of his friends.

Kathie said...

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you have as much fun today as you brng to your readers everyday!

BTW - Tried to check out the link since I do so love your inane nattering... it told me the page didn't exist.

Rebecca said...

The best part of the controller cake is that it says "AaronTendo" but it's definitely an Xbox 360 controller, which is made by Microsoft, not Nintendo. And I just outed myself as a huge geek.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
i read this every single day... it's awesome, and like the others, i LOVE the Sheldon cake!
have a great one, and kno we all got your back!! =)

Happy Birthday Jen!! Hope it's special! I tried the link for your new blog, but it goes to a page that says it doesn't exist. :(

Jasry said...

Happy birthday! I hope somebody gets you a CAKE. ;-) Just not one of those. Please. Not... one... of... those....!!!!!!!

Taylor said...

This is what I love about your blog. You know every movie, book, TV show, song, meme, etc. that I love and reference them incessantly.

Happy Birthday Jen!

Meegan M said...

It's my birthday too!!! Thank you for the funny birthday day cakes!!

Bren Tatro said...

Ummm... the doctor shout-out cake... it says "Police Box" on it. What does that have to do with doctors?

Anonymous said...

I left a message on your new blog but then thought this one might be lonely, so I'll say again HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you get as much happiness today and this year as you've given--which is a LOT.

- N said...

Hurrah for you, Jen! Happy Birthday.

Alex Getts said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May you get a nice, non-wreckified cake for actual celebration!

Mrs. Ohtobe said...

Happy Birthday!
The Star Wars cake looks a little like Jose Jalapeno on a Stick...

Megan said...

Happy Birthday Jen...may your birthday cake not be made out of cupcakes :)

robyn said...

Seriously, Jen? It's really your birthday? Because it's mine, too. =D Thanks for the cakes!

From another five-twelth-er.

Alison said...

Nevermind the fact that that Mickey looks like some strange one-nostriled pig!

Happy Birthday!

Kelly said...

@ Bren Tatro - I think it is a Doctor Who reference, not a medical doctor reference.

Happy Birthday Jen! Don't you feel like having some cake now?

word verification: algater - the slimer lovechild cakes looks like an algater.

PinkPrincessAli said...

Happy Birthday! ou have some awesome favorite things! "Congrads" on the new blog!

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday, Jen!

So, the Chippendale cake amputee. Interesting. Glad the cuff/bandages are nice and neat and not bloody like yesterday's bandaids. or intestines.

Is Harry Potter in heaven? If so, why are there nooses hanging all over and why is a cloud of doom (with a bandaid) chasing him?

Slimer & Jabba's love child! LOL *wipes eyes* too funny! until I noticed his tiny hand he looked like a glove with a face with that tail/thumb.

Dog the Bounty Hunter? I never would have guessed. (not) That cake is a work of "art"--the incongruous surprise of tough guys on a beautiful super-pink cake (with lovely flowers). I think the DOG cast should get that cake at the end of the season. I'm sure they would LOVE it.

Pepto Mickey! with a unibrow! and target ears? "just aim that jellybean for the middle now..." His eyes look like elf hats to me too.

I'm confused about the doctor cake. Doesn't that "building" say "Police Box"? WTF?

have a great day, Jen. thanks for the giggles.

Suzanne said...

Is it really your birthday? It's mine too! Happy Birthday!

Kat said...

Happy Birthday! Wrecklicious finds!! Hope your 'actual' birthday cakes shines :)

Casey said...

Happy Birthday! It's my birthday today, too. We're birthday twins. Do you think we can find a cake for that??

Karla said...

Happy Birthday! I have to say ive been reading your blog for months now (I was really bummed when I couldnt go to the book signing here in orlando.) and of course I love reading this in the morning when I have my coffee, so I was super psyched when I read that today was your B-day since its mine too! So happy b-day fellow may day baby And keep those posts coming.

sendingtheclowns said...

Chippendales...*SIGH*
Back in the day, I went to a nightclub with my bestest friend in the whole wide world, to see a special show. It was called simply, "The Men," and they were Chippendale-esque dancers (who actually were gorgeous, awesome performers). It was SOOOO much fun, and we got SO drunk and silly. SHE got all baby-oily from manhandling the performers.

This cake reminds me NOTHING of that.

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday, Jen!

Is it just me, or is that the only Mickey Mouse cake in history to have a nipple for his nose. Ugh.

I think Harry is *supposed* to be in the middle of that cloud-looking thing in the middle. But there are still nooses. Pleh.


WV: Boximing. We need to be boximing these wrecks up for the trash collection.

Aliza said...

♪♫ Happy birthday to you! ♫♪ Hope you're having a great day-- including howling with laughter over the latest wrecks sent you! And as for the birthday cake-- are bakeries yet struck with terror at the idea of baking a cake for you?

PS For your blog, it gets a page not found, but there's a link which if you click it, the page shows up.

Jenniffer said...

Happy Birthday Jen! Hope your birthday is as great as your blog is funny!

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Okay, that cake obviously isn't Jabba - it's You Know Who in worm form!

Cyndi said...

Please post your actual birthday cake.Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks,Happy Birthday!

Kirsten said...

Happy Birthday! I too am a five-twelve birthday girl!

NYCGirl said...

Happy birthday, Jen!

Crunchy Sews said...

Actually, upon hearing it is your birthday I feel compelled not to rise and applaud but to visit Spaceship Earth. ;)

Enjoy the day!

funkymunky5683 said...

Actually, I think the Jabba the Hutt one was actually a fairly decent (ignoring the sprinkles)representation of the baby hutt from Clone Wars.

Happy birthday and thank you for the daily belly laughs!

(skitters over to your new blog!)

jkuhnen said...

Happy Birthday!

The Police call box is "supposed" to be the Tardis, from Doctor Who - hence the doctor reference.

lovesteamykeamy said...

Happy birthday! Hope it's a good one. :)

Love the Bazinga cake. And looks to me like Mickey Mouse has become Mickey Pig...

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday, Jen!!

Also, your wreckdition of "Micky" had me choking with laughter for nearly a full half-hour.

...as did "Slimer and Jabba's love child".

Worryingly, I'm also seeing a bit of E.T. in the little guy... that's one messed-up gene pool!

Ellen said...

Did Mickey and Piglet have a love child?

D Dennis said...

Are those *nipples* on unibrow Mickey?

sevenmarie said...

happy birthday!

Are your cats names for harry potter?

also the harry potter cake is upside down and harry is supposed to be on that cloud in the middle. also as an ex-cake decorator, that cake is supposed to have a base of light blue icing and a yellow border with star and moon sprinkles. i'm just saying.

heidrance said...

I'm pretty sure the Harry Potter cake is upside down. Those are Quidditch goal posts.
And I always appreciate a good Doctor Who reference.

Aliza said...

I Hope you have a very happy birthday! This video always seems to make my day...

I loved the HP cake. hilarious. and slimer/jabba's love child.

Keep blogging, you're hilarious! :D

Happy Birthday Jen! Thanks for all the laughs and I hope you get to have as much fun as I've gotten from this blog.

Happee Birfday, Jen! LOL

I will definitely be checking out the other blog!

Happy Birthday and I wish you many, many more - with lots of cake, of course!

Excellent cake post, as usual. Plus, I'm excited about your new blog and yes, I was able to access it. Yay!

Anyway, keep up the great work and enjoy your day!

DaMamaJama said...

I'm inclined to "believe" that the Ghostbusters cake is supposed to be an X-Files cake, but that no-ghost thing is throwing me off.

cep said...

You can't go wrong with a little dark lord humor on your birthday. Happy birthday, Jen!

Anonymous said...

Happy birthday!

I must say, what is up with that "harry Potter" cake. I don't see the reference at all - unless it's from the unpublished "Harry Potter and the Suicide Pact".

The Black Dog said...

If someone eats that entire Dr Who cake, the Tardis doors will have to be wider to accommodate them.

Ruth said...

Happy Birthday!!

D.B. Echo said...

Happy Birthday!

I had to look up close to see that the the Harry Potter cake was upside-down...and broken. Makes me wonder if there have been any Quiddich-related decapitations (other than those involving Beaters.)

I wonder if the Mickey Mouse cake started out as a Porky Pig cake. Or Spanky Ham from Drawn Together.

And I'd like to point out that the first one is actually EPCOT. (No, I'm just foolin'. It's the EIGHTH one that's actually EPCOT.)

WVW:
mogging - the act of wishing Jen a happy birthday while trying to be funny and clever.

LaurenH said...

Wow.

That Rudolph-cat-leopard-print-Ottoman hybrid sure has some bloody ears...

catsrae said...

Happy Birthday!

Just one question: Why are there pine trees next to the Eye on the Lord of the Rings cake? I don't remember those being important to the plot...

Also, I'm sad to realize that some of the people who commented haven't seen Doctor Who... although that is about the laziest TARDIS I've seen, so maybe it is confusing.

Amber K said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

That is so, so, so funny, because today is MY birthday! =)

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday, Jen!

Today is my big sister's birthday, too! :D

I see in the comments that there are a lot of people celebrating their birthdays today, so Happy Birthday to Everyone born on May 12th! :D

sendingtheclowns said...

Wow, Jen...
That *other* blog has WAY more comments than this one....
and so early in the day!
People can be so darn fickle!
No reason they can't do both!

=^~.-^=

note to self: look for old track shoes

Jamie Spaulding said...

I love you even more for naming your cats Lily and Tonks. My husband never would have gone for HP characters, so ours are named for Firely characters.

The Eye of Sauron looks more like a giant alien insect hive crashed down on Middle Earth than it does an evil eyeball.

Also, lulz to the confusion over the Police Call Box. Not 'doctor,' folks. The Doctor.

May babies rock the casbah!

Anne said...

Am I wrong, or is the Harry Potter cake upside-down? Those "nooses" look like the Quidditch goals with ribbons tied on them.

Grace said...

May 12 is definitely the best day to be born! Looks like you and I share a birthday, Jen. We don't even need an excuse to eat cake today! Yes!

I think the HP cake may turn into an Epcot soon... Although the eye of Sauron sure looks Epcotty to me...

Happy Birthday! Hope you show us your real cake... maybe on Sunday Sweets?

And I want the Dog cake... it rocks. The only improvement would be to replace the Dog cast with Chuck Norris.

absepa said...

Oh, Jen. As if I didn't already think you were all kinds of awesome...then I find out that your cats are named after HP characters. So cool. I wanted to name my three dogs Harry, Ron, and Hermione, but my husband said he did not feel comfortable standing outside, yelling for Ron. Happy birthday!

Stressfactor said...

For the "Yoda" cake I actually would have voted for it being the 'love child' of Jabba the Hutt and Sil from the Doctor Who episode "Vengeance on Varos"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/gallery/monsters2/varos.shtml

But, then again, that's me.

charli said...

Happy Birthday! Mine is Friday and I've been struggling with what kind of cake I want. Now I know. BAZINGA!!

Cassie said...

Wow, Its my birthday too!
So Happy Birthday to both of us!

ladyrazorsharp said...

Happy Birthday Jen! May your birthday cake be decidedly un-wrecky. (just don't tell the bakery you're part of Cakewrecks; they might think you LIKE that kind of thing...)

I didn't get the Eye of Sauron cake at first, but thanks (?) for explaining it. Never would have gotten that one (flaming coconut? ant hill?).

And of course you KNOW that a beautiful cake filled with lovely pink roses isn't complete without a picture of Dog the Bounty Hunter. I mean, it just ISN'T. (that HAD to be a gag...if it wasn't it's making ME gag)

Is it terrible that I thought the TARDIS cake was minimalist but adorable? =)

The rest are in the best wrecky tradition. Hoo boy.

Casey said...

Today's my birthday too!! And I love that you named your cats after Harry Potter.

Jen, I loved you before but now that I know your cats are named Lily and Tonks, I can say that I LOVE you!!! I have a red haired, shy but courageous Border Collie (read:smart) named Ginny. We should get them all together and eat cake!

Happy birthday Jen! While this won't bring anywhere near the awesome level of laughter your posts provide, I saw this and thought you might enjoy it too (if you're watching the newest series of Doctor Who, which of course I don't know). A macro of Doctor Who and Veggie Tales. =]

So does John stress out every year trying to find you an acceptable "Sunday sweet"-style non-wreck for your birthday cake, or does he go whole hog and try to get you the biggest, most awful wreck imaginable? Either way he's got some major expectations to live up to!

Happy Birthday Jen!

just wondering, does Jen want a wreck or non-wreck for her birthday? We all know you want sprinkles....and that you DON'T want a CCC.

Trixie61 said...

Happy Birthday!

If you hadn't pointed out Harry Potter flying off that cake, I'd have stuck to my first impression...a wedding cake with 4 nooses on it. Double wedding, perhaps?

I was telling my 8-year-old to come look at the Mickey cake, but I had a mouthful of food when I was saying it, so he thought it was supposed to be a *monkey* cake. He said, "That doesn't look like a monkey - it looks like a cross between a pig and a bear!" Then when I told it wasn't supposed to be a monkey, it was supposed to be Mickey, he said, "That's supposed to be MICKEY????" Apparently a monkey was more believable.

Happy birthday Jen!

I hope your cake, if you got one, was a lot better than these!

That Doctor Who cake looks exactly like something I would do. I couldn't draw a TARDIS to save my life. But, at least that looks edible!

Happy birthday, Jen! Just wanted to let you know that we also have a cat named for HP: Luna. Notice that unlike some people, we don't appear to be wishing an early, violent death on our cat.

You're the best. I should've known you were an HP fan.

Holy God, the Dog cake. The bounty better be on the heads of these heinous cake makers. I'd actually watch the show then.

I just wanted to say I have a kitty named Tonks, too! And a Scout, from To Kill a Mockingbird :)

I think that Harry potter cake is upside down. Aren't they quidditch hoops?

And the Doctor Who cake isn't that bad, the lines are straight, the spelling is correct and the pun is quite funny (although perhaps a bit obscure?)

Happy Belated Birthday!

So my husband and I just had a fight over whether that Lord of the Rings cake is the Eye of Sauron (me: "It's a lidless eye wreathed in flame") or a gigantic palantir from the city of the dead (him: "it's in the snow next to trees, and only an idiot would mistake it for the Eye") that honestly I've never even heard of.

I stand by my bet of $20 that the baker of the cake intended it to be the Eye of Sauron. And by my belief that the icing on it is all wonky.

I love the fact your cats are named Tonks and Lily. You are more my hero each day.

My kids just looked at the "Mickey Mouse" cake and one said "A monkey cake" and the other said "I don't like that monkey cake, it makes me scared."

my 3 year old just walked up behind me as I got to the last cake and said, "Look at the Mickey Mouse cake!... do you think that looks like Mickey?... What kind of animal is that??"

Haha! Happy Birthday : D

Mickey's kinda looking like the Operation Game guy:

Umm, the Mickey cake looks like someone has a boobie fetish. the ears, the nose... in fact, the face except for the ears almost looks like a depiction of someone's weird tattoo. Or those women at Mardi Gras...if you haven't received that pic in a viral email, Google it...There's also a surrealist artist who painted Marilyn Monroe with Mickey boobs, though his name escapes me ATM. (Yes, I could Google it)

WV: pringon. Pringon the Mickey boobs!
