My boyfriend is going to be an old fart.

No, he’s not really, but I’ve been trying to think of a birthday gift for him because his 25th birthday is on May 31st. He reads my website so I’m not going to divulge much information, but one part I don’t mind him knowing about is a couple of shirts I’m thinking of getting him. The other day I was looking at Cyanide and Happiness when I decided to see what merch they had up. Saw the Bathroom t-shirt and knew that shirt was Mark, and that he needs to own it. I also want to order the Next-Gen Gaming t-shirt from because Mark’s been way obsessed with the Wii (more specifically Zelda: Twilight Princess, and now Super Paper Mario–speaking of which, he needs to finish it so I can borrow it!)

But I really want to do/make something creative for him but I have no idea where to start or even look. A few months ago I had made him a Bloo trashcan (from the tv show Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) which I get to see every time I go over to his place… But anyway, I think I have an idea, though I’m not sure.

As far as baking goes, I know exactly what I’m going to do for his birthday cake. I’m a bit of a nut for baking, especially if it involves a cute boy named Mark, so I’m going to be recipe hunting as well as getting together some of the ingredients. Let’s just say it’s going to take a couple boxes of cake mix to be able to have the right amount of baked cake to create what I plan on doing.


  1. Yeah, Joe turns 25 this year on May. 10th, and I also think he’s getting old 😛 I also don’t know what to get him for his birthday yet, although we’ve been talking about going away somewhere.

  2. My boyfriend is an old fart too, 36. Yikes, it makes me feel icky when I type that out. Anyway, he always makes it very clear what he wants for his birthday, making it very easy for me to buy him a present.

  3. Oh, my boyfriend is going to turn 30 next year 🙁 We both think that I’ll fall into deep depression because I think that 30 is a terrible birthday. He thinks not.
    I like the links you posted, the first one is cute (from 04.15.2007)

  4. Aww, yay for birthdays! 😀 I’m only 3yrs away from being 25, woe. 😛 Sounds like an interesting birthday cake you’ll be building for him…you’ll have to post pics after it’s done!
