happy birthday to me!

Thank you to the folks that wished me happy birthday on my last post! Now if only Amanda Peet's people would call to set up that lunch. Or at least send a nice signed picture.

Today is my actual birthday and boy, oh boy am I excited. No really, I am. My big birthday plans span most of the weekend and start tonight with dinner at Teatro Zinnzanni. I'm so excited about dinner there and it has been suggested I get jparks on stage during the show. And seeing as I love having him make an ass of himself in front of large groups, I'm going to try my hardest to make that happen.

On Sunday I'm hosting my own birthday party, which is a Teen Angst party. A what? A teen angst party, where we will be watching My So-Called Life and talking about our inner pain that NO ONE UNDERSTANDS. Black eyeliner is optional, but encouraged. Also, if I didn't invite you and you live near me, I'm so sorry! It was a mistake on my part and you are more than welcome to come. Shoot an email my way and I'll send you the evite.

Besides all of the teen angst, my party will also involve lots of food. Mainly cake and bacon wrapped items, because indulging on your birthday is allowed and encouraged. I called to order my cake yesterday and, let's not tell jparks, but I couldn't make up my mind about the flavor, so I ordered 3. Hells yeah. Chocolate on chocolate, orange almond, and kahlua mocha cream.

And as for bacon wrapped foods, I'm going to make some bacon wrapped cheese crackers, which sound very lowbrow and delicious. I'm also planning on making bacon wrapped figs, assuming I can find figs. If I can't, it'll probably be bacon wrapped dates.

And for those of you that aren't bacon fans (do those people even exist?), I'm going to hit Trader Joe's for various appetizers. And assorted fruit flavored spritzers. And any other snacky bits that grab my attention. mmm, Trader Joe's snacky bits.

All in all, I think this is going to be a great birthday.


  1. Happy Birthday!
    I hope I have tastebuds by Sunday, 'cause 3 cakes? Hells yea!

  2. Happy Birthday (just under the wire)! Bacon is good in all things, including breakfast creme brulee, and I think an entire cake of bacon is the appropriate way to go.

    I'll be loitering outside the 7-Eleven smoking in honor of your party.

  3. bacon - mmmmm!!
    cake - mmmmm!! more cake - mmmmmmmm! more cake - mmmmmmmmm!!!
    living far away - wah! wah! wah!

  4. A teen angst party = genius. What made you think of that? It's fabulous!
    And three cakes? Really living the Cali life now huh? :P
    And bacon haters really do exist... I exist!
