so g's birthday was a few days ago. he got a new bike. lucky kid. he rode it to school once. then the rains came. the rains always come around his birthday. it's like celestial clockwork or something. his cake was fun. awful. but fun. it was awful because i bought a really crappy box of really crappy cake mix. but it's got no corn syrup. so that's something. i also bought an expensive box of brownie mix that looks like an expensive box of cake mix. at least enough so to fool the person making the grocery list. oops. my bad. so anywho, we were originally thinking a portal theme. that led to angry birds. which would have been fun. but that led to minecraft. oh yeah. winner. so he got a nice terraced chocolate cake with orange flavored green icing on the top. and a cake. a minecraft cake on top of his uh minecraft cake. heh. i guess that only makes sense to people who play minecraft. or like my kids, watch videos of people playing minecraft. anywho, g and i ran off to baseball practice. b came home from cross country and got the giggles. he asked about scraps. the beautiful and talented alisa thought he meant, to eat. but no. he made a steve. it was quite a nice steve. and if you don't know what steve is, you need to play some minecraft. or watch videos of people playing minecraft. which apparently, is fun.
