(Quick note: Phoenix Down shirts shipped today! Sorry for the delay!)
Yuko's birthday was on Saturday! She had a small group of people at the last minute. Everyone ate beef curry, and then she made them drink and watch Twilight (possibly the only way to get through that movie). By the way, that's Jamie in the first panel - he reviews a number of things over at Angry Zen Master, and he's also the illustrator for Erfworld, one of Time Magazine's 2007 graphic novels of the year. Anyway!
Yuko expressed her desire for an ice cream cake earlier in the week. I had been planning to bake her a cake, but I have no idea how to make an ice cream cake ... near as I can tell, you just flip a carton of ice cream upside down, strip off the container, and start frosting it. The cake I got said "Happy Birthday Yuko!", but somehow that just didn't seem like enough. Now, if you know Yuko, you know she might like dragons or something ... so I attempted to draw one onto the cake with icing we had in the apartment. It, uh ... didn't go so well ... By the time we got around to serving the cake, the dragon looked like a puddle of blood. D:
There's always next year ...
