Starting off, I am posting this picture of my finished cake in order to make my mom feel better. I don't think she expected me to take a picture of the "plague cake" and immediately post it all over social media! So in the interest of fairness, here is the properly decorated version:
Yes, hearts, because awww.

Mom thinks it's hilarious to buy me pony toys for Christmas and birthday. Who am I to tell her to stop? The reactive targets, of course, are always useful.
I also got some spending money for my upcoming NRAAM trip, and an Amazon gift card from my big brother.
I also got a ton of birthday wishes from people here and on Facebook! Thank you so much. I lost count after a hundred or so, but believe me, I read every single one and they all made me smile! :D
However, I do want to give a special shout-out to Awelowynt, who decided to fulfill his dream of, and I quote, "ordering you an actual Glock from Amazon."
No link to Amazon for it because I don't want to know how much it cost! It's a VERY nice blade, however, and while I haven't tested it yet I can tell you this much:
- It is Properly Sharp. One of the few knives I haven't had to sharpen after opening the package!
- It looks like a bayonet, except it doesn't have a mounting bracket.
- It feels like a dagger/combat knife, both in terms of length and how it feels in my hand. It's definitely more weapon than tool.
And finally, while not technically a present, I received a literal family of camping stoves to test from Bushcraft Essentials!

Yes, that's an OMG SO ADORABLE little baby stove on the left. Both mom and I squee'd with delight when we saw it! I am looking forward to testing them all.
This blog post needs a conclusion, but I can't think of one, so... uh... purple dishwasher.
