today was Thomas's best friend's 25th. my first idea was to bring him chocolate chip cookies as a birthday offering, but since he purportedly dislikes anything involving chocolate, we ended up baking him a strawberry cake complete with sprinkles and glittery pink icing instead. there was a shit ton of that glittery pink stuff left over, though, so thomas got creative and presented me tonight with a muffin that he'd decorated with a gooey pink heart on top. out of its remnants was born my first attempt at stop-motion. oh, and also, a blog. good muffin, huh?
