Birthday Surprise!

My Dear Wife and Sister-in-Law surprised me with these last night. It's a cupcake representation of the periodic table - well, the first 41 elements - in celebration of my 41st birthday. What a sweet thing to do. Made my day. Thanks!

I took them into work today and let me tell you, if you're ever in desperate need of a pick me up, just load 41 chocolate cupcakes into a car and drive around for an hour. I arrived at work in the best mood ever.

This geeky "birthday cake" was much appreciated by my co-workers, too. There was substantial curiosity over whether anyone would take the Arsenic cupcake. I'll end the suspense - Viola Zuppa did.

For those of us that prefer two, did anyone dare eat the C AND N one (C≡N)?

Ooh! Good one. No, everyone stayed pretty elemental. Damn! An opportunity missed.

Hmmm, I'm surprised that the eater of the N one did not consume another, I heard it was a little airy. Okay, I'll stop now. Sorry.
