Boy, blogging sure beats boredom!

I haven't blogged in a while. Not that nothing's happened, but I usually have a hard time knowing what to say.
My 20th birthday was on Friday the 24th. I made a much bigger deal about it than Crystal liked. Marc, my manager at Moe's, makes gourmet cakes on the side. (He's trying to make a business out of it.) I got him to make me a cake for my birthday. (See left.)
The cake was made to serve 20 people, so I invited as many people as I could to come over to my house for cake, then mini golf. Unfortunately, only 5 people said they would come, but then only 2 people showed up. It was still pretty fun, since we ended up going to Moe's for lunch, then bowling at Oceana Naval Base. I've never been there, so it was pretty cool to be able to go.
The cake turned out amazingly: it was very tasty and looked great. My continual complaint is that I paid quite a bit of money for it, and I didn't have very many people to share it with, so it seems like a big waste. Oh well, it was a momentous occasion, so I guess it was worth it.

Advocating Anime

Crystal has been softening to the idea of anime.
She knows I've attended the anime club at school and went to Nekocon a few (4) times.
I've argued the point with her a few times that anime isn't all satanic or porn like my mom seems to think. I told her about my favorite anime: Ghost In the Shell, and how it's very intelligent and philosophical. It was even named by the Wachowski brothers as one of the inspirations for the Matrix trilogy.
She said she'd watch it. (Just to appease me.)
Randy has apparently seen some of this very series in the past, and was also excited to watch it with us. Awesome, he can help me explain and advocate Ghost In the Shell to Crystal.
She saw an episode, and decided she could tolerate it further. I was convinced she'd like it, so I continued to show her more, and she conintued to say it was a little interesting and she wouldn't mind seeing some more.
Finally we were at her parents' place this afternoon with her sisters while her parents went out, and we saw another episode or two, and Crystal told me that she likes Ghost In the Shell.
Score! I win!

Avast! April Arrives! Applause All!

So, as you probably know, April is here. That means my birthday is coming up.
I have arranged a few details such as inviting many of my friends to do something around the day, giving them an alternative, and one surprise which I will blog about afterward so as not to ruin it.
I've never really made a big deal out of my birthday. Last year I went bowling with three of my friends and told the rest of my friends to get my favorite ice cream from Cold Stone. As with last year, I told everyone to go to Cold Stone, but I'm not sure what I want to do with my friends this year. I have a very different set of friends this year, and things would be different even if I did the same thing. If anyone does read this, please comment with your suggestions. Also, you are invited to come along too in case you haven't been told yet.
