For my 21st birthday I was a Muslim and couldn't partake in the consumption of alcohol. However, a week before my actual birthday I had a birthday and graduation party. My friend Chris had just graduated from college, so I wanted to celebrate it. Another friend had turned 21, so it was a birthday party for her as well. It was a tea party. I made a Spongebob cake because I thought it was universal. I thought Happy Birthday and Graduation written on a cake might be too much! The Muslim family I was associated with were coming to the tea party with their two young children; I brought out my stuffed animals. The kids loved that. The rest of the guests and I played charades and we were just so silly. Nan came to the party, as usual with my birthday parties, and she was so funny with playing charades. She was so good at playing. The kids joined in for a bit, but got bored. Nan loved children, so she said to the kids, "Hey, let's go downstairs and play!" Nan took the kids to my basement along with Samira (the mom). Samira later said that she and the kids loved nan; she was such a sweet lady and treated the kids well (I guess they were used to people treating them horribly because they were Egyptian Muslims). It was a good time. Sadly, after I became an apostate (I'm an apostate in both Catholicism and Islam... go me!), they stopped talking to me. I also miss nan.
It's crazy to think I'm friends with only three of these people now.
After charades and after Samira, Mohamed, Adham and Layla left, we played Guitar Hero.
I started making the Monoxide/Twiztid logo for my cake. The image printed bigger than what I wanted; I am going to have to make a sheet cake. I was going to dye the batter purple and black and layer them while they were baking. Do you know if I can do that with a sheet cake?
