an Oh Myyy Property

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Oh, and they made him this Pikachu cake. You know, nbd.

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant icing is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod

Hehe this gave me a good chuckle this morning. Now wish I had a boyfriend so I could do this to them. - MidnightMadness21

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The best birthday present I ever got was from a girl who baked me a cake secretly. So thanks for doing that for him, I know I'd feel great about it. - Levitr0n

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

President Donald Trump's sudden decision to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military in any capacity sparked a flurry of condemnation from lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in 2017 and now, just a day after the Supreme Court voted to uphold the ban, Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) has spoken out.

The conservative media just can't seem to accept the fact that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez swept the Democratic party's primary election in what is considered the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm election primaries.

Since then, the freshman Representative for New York's 14th congressional district has been the target of numerous railing ever since the Democratic Socialist became a member of Congress.

After Fox News ripped AOC for not being able to afford an apartment in Washington, D.C., the conservative news channel laid into her again after she made a comment about economic instability and healthcare concerns.

During an event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in New York City, the Congresswoman said she believed it was "immoral that billionaires co-exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don't have access to public health..."

The government shutdown is in its 33rd day, President Donald Trump's border wall is far from popular––in fact, a New York Times analysis found that "The wall has consistently been unpopular, with voters opposed by around a 20-point margin over months of national surveys. That makes it even less popular than the president himself."––and many people out there who, between the president's contentious appearances and even angrier tweets, wish he'd just fall into the Earth and disappear.

Perhaps they'll get their wish?

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.

This summer, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe would have been married for 20 years had it not been for their divorce 12 years ago. At the current age of 42 (43 in March), Witherspoon was a mere 23 years old when she tied the knot. Not many people know what it's like to get married that young, but Reese got real about what it was like.
