How young punks in their late twenties celebrate their birthday these days

Until last night, I'd never been to a birthday party where purely by coincidence, approximately two-thirds of the 30 or so guests were wearing jeans and black tops of some sort.

Of course, until last night, I'd also never heard anyone declare the following about Martell Cordon Bleu: "Even if you're dead, you won't have a hangover."

More accurately, until last night, the three words "Martell Cordon Bleu" had never entered my hearing in that sequence before.

I didn't have any, anyway. The word "Martell" gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Let them eat cake

I don't know, actually. I don't speak enough fancy food language to know.

Okay, I can try to describe it: Those pink things are soft light pastry things with fillings, some chocolate, some strawberry, some other things. And they were all stuck to the outside of a pyramid, which we couldn't eat except for the chocolate exterior layer.

Does any of that make sense?

i think they're called macaroons. reminds me of something bakerzin came up with for christmas - stacked the macaroons in similar fashion resembling a christmas tree.

I know macaroons exist, I'm not sure what they are --- I assume they're what's pictured on the Canele website? :)

Anyway, the pink things were more mini-eclair-shaped rather than the more rounded shapes on the Canele website --- so I guess the question is whether macaroons are by definition always that shape?
