It was my birthday on Saturday (I turned 36, thank you for asking), and you may recall that last year's birthday party featured some impressive items, such as a cake decorated with a red panda, and a swing set made out of chocolate.
This year I did not get a room full of topless women (I had to visualize that myself), but I did get a robotic teddy bear keychain from Amber and Jeff, which is pretty close to a robotic red panda in terms of roboticness and cuteness.
I don't know for certain whether the robot teddy bear was Six Things-inspired, but this card from Cindy and Derek certainly was:
The most impressive item this year, though, was an umbrella made of balloons, personally twisted (and displayed below) by Lorinne.
Too cool. Anyway, after the distribution and devouring of some decadent chocolate layer cake baked by Rose, the last batch of revelers ended up playing a few rounds of Rock, Paper, Anything, a game which I always love to play, and not just because I helped make it up in the first place. (The rules, such as they are, are here, most of the way down the page.) It was late and I was tipsy, so I don't remember most of the combinations, but I do remember "paper" being thrown against "grenade"; paper might cover grenade, but not for long.
To sum up: a totally splendid party. Same time next year?Posted by Francis at 01:00 AM
