Here's a photograph of the uncut birthday cake I wrote about. If you can't read it, it says at the top "Wishing A Magical Birthday To Our Favorite Wizard!" and the bottom adds "(Oh And Harry Potter, Too!)." The cover says "Chris Valada and the Deathly Hallows."
Now that it is forever immortalized, we can probably eat what hasn't gone stale.
I'm a professional photographer, a recovering attorney, an adjunct instructor of photography at a local community college and a four-time Jeopardy! Champion (Season 26.) Much of my spare time is spent learning to ride horses, an activity denied to me when I was a child. I love to cook and entertain and I am a passionate reader. I am married to an "old god" of the comic book world, writer Len Wein. He's the one who created Swamp Thing (with artist Berni Wrightson), the Human Target (with Carmine Infantino), Wolverine (with artists John Romita and Herb Trimpe), and Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler (with the late, great Dave Cockrum.)
