This past Monday was also my 29th birthday. My friends and I went out to Rock Lobster and had a great meal and an absolutely, obscenely huge bowl of sangria. I baked my own cupcakes because I'd been craving lemon cake and also wanted to try out the same recipe I'd used for a birthday cake that I baked for my mom a few years back. They turned out really good.

On a completely unrelated note, this morning I caught a Huntsman spider in my shower. Just a little baby, but already as large as wolf spiders back home. These guys can get as big as tarantulas and are affectionately known as "donkey spiders" down here.
