my best friend is turning 21. she's not a drinker and doesn't plan to be but we have a big obsession w/that nasty japanese alcohol. it mostly stems from our love of Rouroni Kenshin (anime show if you don't know) and Kenshin's master, Hiko (who drinks sake constantly).
I would just buy her some sake as a funny gift for her birthday but
1. her mom would freak out (living at home w/controlling parents due to lack of money to move out).
2. I'm not 21
so, i thought, i could buy her some sort of sake jug, but pottery can be expensive, missed chance to buy some sort of sake-related pottery at world market, blah blah blah.
here i am, back at school again, stranded in little old town in missouri trying to figure out what to get for her birthday in a week. bwt she lives about 7 hours from here.
any ideas on something to make that would remind her of our little joke about sake on her 21st?
