Birthday presents

Here are my birthday presents:






From Janda's mom, I got a Harry Potter journal and a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor beans. The box contains the following flavors: Earwax, Booger, Sausage, Black Pepper, Vomit, Dirt, Soap, Rotten Egg, Pickle and Earthworm. We were all curious to taste them, so I started handing them out. I was nice and everyone got not-entirely-revolting flavors to start. Then it got serious. Earwax and Booger actually weren't that bad, more salty. Next came vomit. After a couple of tentative chews, you really get the full effect. I'm not sure that it tasted exactly like vomit, but it was pretty darn gross and we all spit them out. The last flavor was Rotten Egg. After one bite my mouth was filled with the most disgusting flavor imaginable. Again, I'm not sure that it was exactly like rotten eggs, since I have avoided tasting them until now, but it was at least 5 times more gross than the vomit jelly bean. So, if you ever buy Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, give Rotten Egg to your least favorite friend.

Then yesterday I (finally!!) got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. My parents held out on me until the end of the day, so I was up until 1am reading it, but it was worth it. The book was wonderful and sad; I really thought it was a very good ending to the series. I also got movie tickets to go see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and an Eiffel Tower statue for my desk.

All in all I got some great presents and two great cakes, one from my parents and a personal sized cake from my friend Sarah at the cookout the other night. There was a definite Harry Potter theme to my birthday, but that's not surprising since a) I love Harry Potter and b) both the movie and the book came out right around my birthday. Actually the books alwyas seemed to come out around my birthday. I'm just lucky I guess.
