What's a party without a pinata?

So for my 30th birthday, I decided to cope by throwing myself a self-indulgent party. (Another post dedicated to that at another time...) I also decided that such a party must have a pinata, and what better shape for that pinata than a T??

Oh, and here's what became of it:
