The baby shower was at this fancy place that had this amazing - (that is not an adequate word) - view of the lake with like a wall of windows overlooking it. Breath-taking.
They served us lunch. I had the salmon. Salmon is one of those dishes that has to be prepared just perfectly or it is too dry. This salmon was unbelievably exquisite. And the sauce they had on it was unreal. I maybe rubbed my veggies and potatoes through the sauce as well. It was worth the trip just for the food. Yummy.
We got to see hiyacynth, who looks great. For those of you wondering - it is her first child, a boy, and they have named him Munchy P. I am sure they will come up with something more society-approved for the birth certificate. ;)
We sat at lunch with a very nice and entertaining girl that we had also sat with at hiyacynth's wedding, which was lovely. I am usually so awkward at social events, so it was nice to have someone to talk with that felt so very comfortable. Also, we overheard this one girl talking about how she was headed out the next day to Harry Potter Land, so we geeked out with her about that.
Then hiyacynth opened all her gifts. Munchy P made out like a bandit - it was a shitton. A shitton, for those of you that don't know, is the Canadian equivalent of a fuckload.
After that, we went to the hotel, because driving back the four-plus hours on the same day seemed liked overkill. (Though my sister did once drive sixteen hours straight on our way back from vacation in Minnesota.) Then I had a nappie. The BFF studied for the Bar Exam. My sister went to have dinner with her college roommate (and proceeded to drunken text message us about the copious amounts of alcohol she was consuming).
Then The BFF and I turned on The Dark Knight, ordered greasy food from the pizzeria down the street and had these Very Important Conversations:
1) CW Actors as The Justice League and CO. Well, she kept doing "The Justice League", but being the dork that I am, I kept going back to my childhood favorite of "Super Friends".
2) Which Batman villain us and our friends would be. The BFF says I would be Harley Quinn and she is so right. (Did you know Harley was voiced by "Calliope" from Days of Our Lives? This makes me squee. I loved Calliope.)
3) And a conversation I blame totally on queenklu, who are the most slashable animated characters. Including the debate over whether the dwarfs were actually in love with Snow White or if it is more a codependent relationship hero-worship thing. I did make a case for Doc/Happy.
4) I am sure there was more, it went on for three hours and lots of insanity and laughing because we were sleep-deprived and ridiculous and it was awesome. I just remember the night ending with me making filthy comments about Jim Gordon ordering people around. Come on, you know it is hot when Jim Gordon orders people around! Also, who is Batman's best boyfriend - Harvey Dent or Jim Gordon?
Honestly, the best Saturday I have had in a long time and I had the most fun hanging out with The BFF.
So, how was your weekend?
On a final note - Hey, Self: when your sister podfics your favorite Dean/Cas AU ever and you fall asleep listening to it - try not to wake up into a hazy consciousness right as your sister's voice is narrating the frottage scene and repeatedly saying the word "cock". It will quite possibly ruin your favorite Dean/Cas love-making scene and also, you know, scar you for life. The End.
