holiday 3

Thank Yous, Birthdays and What-Have-Yous.

a) I finished The Nephew's project last night!! I also recruited The BFF to make cover art. At some point, (re: after the holiday chaos), I will post it for ya'll to read and tell you the origin story of how Awesome my nephew is. Which you already know anyways.

b) THANK YOU to the peeps - rhymephile, aythia and fragrantwoods - who sent me some delicious V-cookies of adorable snowmen. I did not lick the computer screen in an attempt to eat them. /shifty-eyes/

c) The BFF and I already did our gift exchange, as she had to away to her folks for the holiday - (it is so sad that she hasn't been gone 24 hours and I had to call her and talk for like an hour about Jensen, Chad, X-Men, Dark Alec and porn in general). Anyways, she got me the best present ever, you guys. It's just...You'll never guess what it is, but I will upload a picture of it at some point, I promise. Because seriously, I can't stop staring at it and I kind of want to carry it everywhere with me. Okay?

d) HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite people in the whole wide world, like ever. hiyacynth!!

True story about how I met hiyacynth - she was LJ friends with my sister (way before I had an LJ of my own) and they (along with some other of their LJ peeps) decided to go see an orchestra play the LotR movie score. My sister invited me too. We went and had an awesome time and I left thinking, "Hey, that one chick was really cool." Then my sister got me into "Band of Brothers" and after I saw it, I started reading some BoB fanfic. One day, I said to my sis, "You should read this series by this chick, hiyacynth." And my sister just stared at me and said, "You are an idiot," and walked away. As it turns out, I had already met hiyacynth in Real Life and didn't even know it. Then she came for a visit, there was much drinking and ogling of hot men and something about underwear.

And now I love her to smishy pieces. The End.

So, Happy (slightly belated) Birthday, babe! Since it's almost Christmas, have this beautiful snowy pic of Doc Roe.

e) It's bad luck to end on an even number, so I will end with this...Hopefully tomorrow I will get to watch "Elf". Then I will spend a good week answering the phone, "Buddy the Elf. What's your favorite color?", as I do every time I watch this movie.
