Bean's Birthday 2008

So far February hasn't been too eventful of a month, but one modest-yet-fun highlight stands out: Bean's Birthday (aka Christine's Birthday). Although it's not technically her birthday until the 16th, we held it a few days early since Tom was leaving for New Mexico the next day.

It was basically a small group enjoying pizza and some pretty damn good black and tans. Tom missed the first half, since he had some sort of Writers Guild meeting. Apparently the guild leadership was presenting the membership with the terms of the offer to finally end the three-month-old+ writer's strike.

Besides the great company, the highlight of the night was the birthday cake, or rather, birthday cupcakes from Burbank's own Yummy Cupcakes. And believe me, as good as they look in the photos, they tasted even better. We even had to cut them in quarters so we could each try multiple varieties.

As with every party, Ryan eventually fell asleep, with Laura and Christine joining him shortly therafter. Tom and I tried to keep things going with a game of Scrabble, but I eventually joined the sleep party, ultimately crashing on the sofa for the night. They say if you wake up in a bed that's not yours, that's the mark of a good party!

For the record, amigo, that "some sort of Writers Guild meeting" you mentioned led to a vote to end the strike, which changed the lives of thousands of striking WGA writers...FOREVER. So, I think a little respect is due... ;)

Ha! Just kidding. Glad you dug the cupcakes though...Yummy is the best!
