Yesterday was my birthday, so I went to the store to buy myself a cake. The design I chose out of the catalog was that of a nameless stereotypical anime girl, somewhere between Rei and Sailor Moon. "Yes," I remarked coldly, "this will do." The kid behind the counter asked me who to dedicate it to; I almost panicked because I am a fatass with a name that is not unisex. I said it was for my daughter, Belldandy. The kid asked "you named your daughter after an anime character?" I laughed nervously and said that I'd seen it on the Internet and I didn't know what it meant but thought it was cute. I cried all the way home but ate the whole thing anyway.
