Nate always acts embarrassed but I know that he's secretly flattered when people compare him to the delicious Mr. Darcy from Jane Austin's, Pride and Prejudice.
I don't know if it's a physical comparison or the "mysterious" vibe that just oozes out of these men, whatever it is, goodness me...I can't breath.
Personally, I'm a bigger fan of this Darcy:
No matter, the point of this post is to tell my Mr. Darcy "Happy Birthday" and that I love him even though he won't ever read this (he's anti-blog). And I don't hold it against him that he doesn't wear those sexy pants or have a 10,000 pounds a year...
Nate has been "maturely" excited that the 25th anniversary of the GI Joes has released the toys he remembers playing with as a kid.
I thought that it would be fun to make him a GI Joe cake.
Below is the picture of Nate's cake, my mental image of how wonderful Nate's cake would be wasn't quite followed by my actually, physical artistic ability. I think it looks more like a Rainbow Bright cake than a manly GI Joe cake....oh, well. You can't win them all, maybe he would be just as excited if Rainbow Bright came out with a 25th anniversary doll.
