Oh boy. Anyway, the party was good, despite my having a cold. I dosed up on the Neocitran and I think that's what got me through the day. I'm pretty decided that the next time I make Portal cake, I'm only going to make the middle layer. Oh, the funniest part was when I blew out the candle and half the chocolate shavings flew off! I'll post pictures of my haul later on.
In attendance were: Ian, Liz, Elaine, Ed, Wayne, Kay, Mandy, Les, Jess G, and Jeff. It was a good mix. We watched Oblongs while the taco meat was cooking. Ate (tacos), did gifts, ate cake, watched the birthday movie, listened to "Still Alive", played the paper game (with some really kickin' results), played Scategories, played pinball, talked A LOT. I lost my voice this morning. Even though the invites said 4pm-midnight, it ended up being more like 5pm-3am. It was pretty good even though a bunch of my girls couldn't make it. Got lots of birthday wishes on Facebook as well. (I haven't looked at my LJ flist yet, but thank you to those of you who wrote me wishes on there as well. ♥)
What I got.
from my aunt: 2 steel mixing bowls, a blender, 2 packets Jello, 1 can evaporated milk, recipe for whipped Jello
