Annise Parker celebrates her birthday with Italian cream cake, home improvement

Mayor Annise Parker turned 54 yesterday amidst the hubbub of a standard workday.

Parker's staff surprised her late in the afternoon with cake — her favorite, Italian Créme — and a work apron from Southland hardware for her myriad home improvement projects, according to her communications director, Janice Evans. (Parker and her partner own a historic home in the Montrose area).

Parker joked that she'll need a day off to make use of the apron and finally see some of those projects to fruition. A cake and an apron are the mayor's birthday bounty?

Hey, all politicians can't live as large as Rick Perry.
