Achy, Breaky, Cakey...

My daughter's birthday party went well, though the lead-up was not so smooth. An ice cream truck From HadesTM swept through our neighborhood the day before, and in her haste to get to it she tripped me and I splatted fully-frontal on the walkway. Followed by 2 1/2 hours in the E.R. to X-ray my left hand/wrist to make sure it wasn't broken. :( I really needed that time for cake decorating! X-ray said no break, but I have to admit-- it's a little crunchy, and torquing/stretching the bottom of the palm under the thumb hurts a lot. So... I dunno. Suspicious. But it's fine if I leave it alone.

The cake was not TOO bad, despite only having 1 actual "Harry Potter" prop. The Harry Potter figurines are out of stores right now, and Goodwill's toy bin did not come through for us. Thank goodness for my son's Imaginext Dragon Castle stuff. And luckily, his party theme will be Pirates. Arrrrr! We have lots of mini pirate toys to flock the cake with.

Harry Potter Cake
Neverland Cake (2004)
Dinosaur Cake (2004)

Saw "Lady In The Lake" on Saturday. *weeps* M. Night, I don't know what you were thinking. Nor your film editor, for that matter. On the whole I love you, but this? Urk.
