Magic birthday

Cake!
Yesterday there was a birthday dinner for all the people in our magic bar (staff, regulars, etc.) that had their birthday in October or November. We had lots of nice food, a cake, and presents!

昨日、うちのマジックバーの関係者の誕生日会があった。10月・11月生まれの人のお祝い。美味しいものいっぱい食べれた。プレゼントも貰ったし!

Five magicians (and at least two more that do magic from time to time) celebrating birthdays.
I got an umbrella that looks like a katana (samurai sword), and 103 decks of cards of the design I like best! Apparently my friends have scoured the whole city, calling every Daiso shop in Sapporo (and other cities like Obihiro) and reserved every deck of this type available. I also got a (long) list of all the Daiso they had checked. A great present, but a little heavy to lug home.

僕が刀の形の傘を貰った。そして、僕が一番よく使うトランプを103個貰った!友達が頑張って、札幌にあるダイソー30ヶ所以上電話したみたい。ひらがなトランプがあれば、全部買いに行った。帯広や他の街でも探したそうだ。凄いプレゼントだったが帰りはちょっと重かった、笑。

103 decks of cards for me!
