When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.

Hi, dear sister of mine. I apologize for not calling you on your birthday or anything, but it WAS Friday the 13th, and other circumstances beyond my control caused a great deal of catastrophe which prevented me from wishing you a happy birthday. Hence, the "sorry" birthday cake.
In order to honor and celebrate the great day of January the 13th, and your birthday, I've done a little research. Ever wonder what other important things happened on this day, besides your miraculous and and spectacular birth? Here are a few events that are priveleged to share the day of your birth. Check it out:

On January 13th, these historical events took place:

888 Duke Odo becomes King of West-France
888 Charles III The Fat One, King of Franconia/Roman Emperor dies
1330 Frederick II The Handsome, Duke of Austrian/German anti-king dies
1488 Herman Vischer the Old buried
1559 Elizabeth I is crowned Queen of England in Westminster Abbey
1625 Peter Bruegel the Older dies
1888 National Geographic Society formed in Washington D.C.
1910 First radio demonstration
1930 Mickey Mouse comic strip first appears
1966 U.S. President Johnson appoints first African-American cabinet member
1967 The Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show
1977 Orlando Bloom is born
1987 Playwright Neil Simon marries actress Diane Lander
1988 Supreme Court rules (5-3) public officials have broad powers to censor
school newspapers, plays, and other expressive activities
1989 Annalicia Marie Whittaker, in a blaze of glory, is born into the world, and
the world has never been the same since

So there you are! Happy birthday, Isha--I hope it was a wonderful day! Did you know you share a birthday with our favorite actor, Orlando Bloom? Pretty special, I'd say.
Anyway, love you lots and miss you tons!

Oh, and happy Steven Foster Memorial day too. That's also on January 13th.

Okay, so the cake featured in this picture was made for my friend Scott and he was turning 23 so that's why there are that many candles. I'm surprised at how observant you are. I miss you lots Baxter.

I would like to say that cake looked incredibly yummy. Or it could just be that I was chatting with my friend who wouldn't LET ME OFF THE FRIGGIN COMPUTER TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT SO I'M FRICKIN STARING BUT IT'S ONE IN THE MORNING SO I SHOULDN'T TECHNICALLY EAT RIGHT NOW! But I don't think that could be it at all...

Little Whee said...

um...apparently hunger has altered my ability to type...I meant starving, not staring...which would have a completely different - and really weird - meaning.

I was about to comment on that, but you beat me to it.
