his birthday was dark and stormy, and he had to deal with registering the new car and boring stuff like that, but bean, boo and i feted him tonight with a feast that we like to call
A Taste of Topeka!
the first course: iceberg lettuce with grated carrots, bac-os faux bacon bits, and french dressing.
from the foreground: veggie franks and beans; vegan "tuna" casserole; veggie pigs in blankets; and canned great beans. it's the food of m's childhood!
thanks, david and ellen, for providing m with some presents to open!! and such nice ones, too:
m's birthday playlist: birthday, by the beatles; happy birthday, by sufjan stevens; happy birthday, by altered images; birthday, by the sugarcubes; and unhappy birthday by the smiths. can anyone think of more songs to add to this list? it's a nice one, but it does get a little repetitive. ideally, there'd be 15-20 good songs on it.
and last, but far, far from least, cocoapuff cake. don't you wish you were here??
