  1. . Favorite birthday cake/ice cream/dessert

    Coconut!!!

    2. Surprise Parties -- have you ever given or received one?

    Both...prefer giving than receiving them, but yeah.

    3. Favorite birthday present

    A Sony Playstation...long story but several people went in on it...a welcome to the neighborhood kind of gift.

    4. What do you think of those candles that won't blow out?

    I try not to. I am sensitive you know.

    5. Best. birthday. ever.

    30. I went to San Francisco and sat around with freinds and celebrated that I was no longer 20-something. Life only gets better after 29.

    There you have it!

  2. I always feel consumed with guilt for not participating in the meme on my site. Too many other thoughts swirling in my head.

    But here are the answers just for Rev Gals:
    1- Favorite cake: Mom's recipe of devil's food with choc. chips and whipped cream icing. Oh my gosh is it tasty!

    2- Surprise parties: hate them. Nevertheless my husband loves them and gave me one for #40 in my favorite town - Chapel Hill.

    3- Favorite present - i Pod

    4 - Candles that won't blow out. Whatever. I prefer unique ones with funky colors.

    5 - Best ever?? Hard one. Maybe this past year (turned 50; everybody is healthy; we love each other; what could be better?)

    Happy UnBirthday to you too!

  10. 1. Favorite birthday cake/ice cream/dessert

    I hate having to make /buy my own birthday cake but love making chocolate cake for others. Most fun was an ice cream cake for son's 4th birthday ...liked thunderbirds.

    2. Surprise Parties -- have you ever given or received one?

    not for me. think I wouldn't like it much. But we did a GREAT suprise for a baby shower for a friend and I loved organising that. Pastor's 40th the CB sprung some guess who this is photos on the wall - and then sang Happy Birthday marilyn munroe style. It was fun too - with a surprise lunch for all.

    3. Favorite birthday present

    I got wonderful jewllery for my 18th from my dad. long time ago now.

    4. What do you think of those candles that won't blow out?

    never had. fun for others I think (but they don't have them in Finland)

    5. Best. birthday. ever.

    mmm my 40th was pretty cool :)
    worst was last one. But I want to forget that.
