Hey! It's Rebcake's birthday!

It's rebcake's birthday today, and I wish her a wonderful one. In addition to having a fine sense of humor and a knack for FITB fic, she also holds the distinction of having made a contribution to International Phallic Spike Day and being the only person to ever write off-color verse for me! (I think we can dismiss the one I intercepted in eleventh grade that Mark Jarvis wrote about my boobs. From his mortification, I'm guessing that I was probably never meant to see it.) Spike limericks, however, are a joy forever. As a token of my appreciation, I wanted to try a little something different with doll!Spike. I thought we might abandon our usual photo shoot routine and try baking something: a cake for Rebcake!

Although initially a little resistant to the idea, doll!Spike was just as helpful as could be once he realized that we were doing this for "that bird what wrote the dirty poetry." Courtly, even! Despite my vow to leave the camera out of this project, I had to take just one picture of my special helper.



*facepalm*I was going to do something different this time. I really was. Sadly, once doll!Spike caught a glimpse of the camera, he abandoned his sous-chef duties for the skills that pay the bills. Poor little plastic Lothario! It's all he knows.



We were just getting going with the photo shoot when I left him alone for two minutes (two!) to go fetch some more props, and it finally happened: he got into the bottle of double-strength vanilla extract that I've tried so hard to keep from him since I brought it home from my Iowa trip in July. Stupid vampire totally owes me fifteen dollars. *sigh* I'm sorry. There was supposed to be more, but he's no good to me now. Just look at him!

You know what? This doesn't have to be a total loss. I think I'm just going to shake it out of him back into the bottle; I could re-label it "Vanilla Extract of Vampire" and use it for Halloween baking.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, REBCAKE!! Hope you have a rawkin' good birthday! And watch out for pinatas. ;)</lj>

*wipes tears (of mirth)* I don't know what to say. "Thanks" seems a tad paltry, what with all the inspirational imagery. Hee! I held it together, until the "Need anything . . . creamed?" bit. Now that's just, I dunno, brilliant?

My day started out great, ifyaknowwhatImean, but this is the cherry on top, Mere! Thanks ever so for the kind words and the naughty pictures. I can face the (monthly) commute with equanimity now.

P.S. I'm so glad Subway Spike made it through the labyrinth of LJ to you. It's a bit of a mystery how. Even now, the links are being weird.

Heh-heh. *hands you a tissue* You're most welcome. And thank you; doll!fic is a good antidote for the week I've had. It was fun to kick everyone out of the kitchen and have my way play with Spike. ;)

I love that Subway Spike pic. The sneer and the naughty fingers--too adorable! I'm not sure why the links went all wonky (does LJ really need a reason lately?) but I think they're fixed now.

Have a great day, lady!

Woo-hoo! That's that good Mexican vanilla that they won't let you bring over the border. LMAO at MiniSpike as the Ace of Cupcakes Rebcakes!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, REB!

Thanks, Socky! It was a great day, although after the amazing Thai food, we sort of *skipped cake*! How did it happen? I couldn't possibly top this sweet little morsel, ya know? It's gonna tide me over for a long, long time, cake-wise. *giggles madly*

*whispers* I'm glad to hear that you had a good day. And I covet your Thai food. *glares at central Arkansas restaurant industry* Get with it, people!

Happy Friday, Reb & Socky! :D

Spike has a little apron! *dies from the cuteness* And he's holding onto the measuring spoons for dear life, it looks like :)

Yes, pure vanilla extract is VERY expensive. Bad alkie!Spike.

This might be the best birthday pic!spam evah.

Thanks, darlin. I couldn't resist the apron, and I had some cloth leftover from the napkin that I sacrificed to make him a toga a couple of months ago. *facepalm* The list of doll props grows ever-longer.

Happy Friday!

I'm sure that's going to be some "layer cake" - "snorfle".

BWAH!
How did you get so damn witty????

Aw, bless you for thinking so. *lol* I think it's a result of low moral fiber and misdirected energies. Also? I'm told that my siblings dropped me a lot as a baby. Maybe that's it. At any rate, I'm glad I could amuse. :)

Hee! He's not too bad at loading the dishwasher either. Well, provided that he's sober, anyway. *frowns* Which isn't very often, now that I think of it. I wonder if it's time for a little trip to doll rehab?

*smooch* Happy Friday, sweetie! :D

Have a lovely weekend, gillo!

I'm too tired, I shouldn't be commenting: just have to tell you this is special! If I was there, I would volunteer for providing little props and gadgets to help you...too bad you do just fine by yourself and don't need any kind of help. The thing is, I'm envious! I want to play too!

Thank you! And actually, my husband gets dragged into helping with the doll photo shoots all the time. I'm sure he'd be delighted to hand his duties off to someone else; I hear that the photographer can become a bit of a prima donna sometimes. ;)

Good weekend to you!

*lol* Thank you! There's really just no telling what doll!Spike is going to say next. I just put him in a situation and trust him to act like the little plastic pervert that he is. ;)
