Random Cake

In the spirit of Pete's "random" birthday party back in August, we're reminiscing about it at the end of October.

Below is the cake that Mom and Pete baked and decorated for the party:

Come back Monday to see if you can match the games to the photos.

Ground Zero

Pete and Sam went to Chuck E. Cheese's last night for Spirit Night for Mom's school. This was a dangerous endeavor, since a kids pizza/game parlor is ground zero for the great Swine Flu epidemic of 2009. Statistically, a safer place to be was probably the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles in August of 1965.

Top 10 Most Swine Flu Infested Surfaces at Chuck E. Cheese's
10. Steering wheel - "Mario Kart"
9. Button on ticket muncher
8. Glass window display case at the prize redemption area
7. "No Deal" button on "Deal Or No Deal"
6. Door handle on exit door
5. Button on "Bubble Up"
4. Thumb triggers - "Top Glo 2"
3. Touch screen of "Flamin Finger"
2. Moist palm of guy walking around in a rat suit
1. Hand sanitizer dispenser

Book Bag

Pete had the following items in his backpack today for school:

  • large purple binder - assignments archive
  • large reading book
  • book - Grubstake (reading)
  • book - Pendragon (return to library)
  • book - can't remember title, something like "Sylvia's Bell Jar" (return to library)
  • lunchbox - apple slices, juice, string cheese, muffins, "cold guy"
  • container of orange pieces for snack
  • can of food for food drive
  • house key
  • random red pen
  • blue homework folder
  • pair of shorts to change into for Running Club

Well, that is all I can remember. Note, if you forget anything that should be in there he will be miserable for the day.
