My birthday went like the chorus to "12 days of Christmas":

Twelve people gathered,
Eleven cake slices,
Ten cat claws clawing,
Nine scrapes on Robert,
Eight minutes of mayhem,
Seven seconds a' toasting,
Six confused laowei,

Five bowls ...of chili!

Four books of Chinese,
Three New Zealanders,
Two Chinese clowns,
and a confetti bomb exploding!
