Happy Valentine's Day, You Peoples!  
Okay, so Valentine's Day was over like an hour and a half ago, but still - it's the thought that counts, right?

Hope your days were all awesome - and if not, well, look at this picture of Giles and tell me that doesn't make you feel better. Come on, who doesn't love The Giles? Also, Hello Kitty, which I made for The Little Girl Cousin, because she likes pink. :)

My sister bought me chocolate. I ate them already. She bought some for The BFF too, but then she ate them herself. Sssssh. She'll buy her more, I promise. :)

Then today we went to see my grandpa - (who is doing better!) - and we played cards with him. We've been playing Rummy with him and he keeps taking our money. Once we showed up with The BFF, and so we had enough people to play Euchre. Every time since then when we come, he asks where The BFF is because he wants to talk to her about how she is going to be a lawyer and he wants to play Euchre. So today we arranged for our dad to meet us at the rehab center so we would have enough people to play Euchre.

And me and my sister partnered up and we kicked their asses! That's what Grandpa gets for taking all our money (okay, it was like 20cents) and smack-talking us while he did it! (Now I know where I learned my smack-talk from). My dad says that Valentine's Day is for girls anyway, so they totally let us win. Whatever.

Hugs to all my Flist-Peeps - you all rock!

Yes Giles, in the library! Books are sexy!

I know, I would totally do it with Giles amidst the stack of his dusty old books. Books are the only thing about Giles that is dusty and old. lol

Books are sexy! - As is Giles.

Also, please note my icon - I've been thinking for awhile that I needed to turn that photo into my 'reading' icon - so now I have. I made it - you can steal it if you want, bb!

Giles is superhot! Unf. *whimpers*

Oh, I like I like. Pretty boys and books are a wonderful combination.

That's a lovely Giles!

Euchre is totally the game of choice for my in-laws. They slap the cards down so fast that I'm always going, "Wait, what? Which was first? Who played that?" I slow their roll.

That's a lovely Giles! - Isn't it? Giles is lovely all around.

Euchre is my family's game of choice as well - my grandpa taught me to play when I was seven. But even after playing for 25 years, I still get all "Who? What?" when people do that thing where they lay down like three cards and go, "I got the rest of these." Lately we don't do that anymore, because my grandpa is getting slower and has to be reminded a lot what trump is, so we just go one at a time, nice and slow. I'm kind of grateful.

Ooh, I hate it when they lay down all of their remaining cards instead of playing out the hands! LOL

Slower really is better sometimes.

Honestly, my grandpa had that stroke and then a broken leg and then the flu - and it was just a lot for him and I think he got really depressed about it all. But he's back on the horse - hopefully they can get him out of the rehab ward and into an assisted living and reunited with my grandma again real soon.

Jacket fic - It's almost done, but I jacked my shoulder up and so I haven't really written anything lately - both due to pain and the fact that my muses have left the building (probably due to pain, it gets me stressed out now that they can't give me pain pills). But I am up to the porn, so once I get back on it, I think another 1,000 words out to do it - the porn and then the wrapup. Bathtub sex sounds good in theory but I don't think it is probably that comfortable. I'm not sure how porny I am going to end up making it. Stay tuned.

Hope you are doing well.

Oh, good that he's doing better after all that. My grandma had a few problems, too, and she gave it up.

Awww, sorry about that! Hope you feel better soon.
You know I don't really like porny fics (or with anatomic details). You can totally 'dance' around it or skip it or something. ;)

Take care! :)

(points to icon as the best I can do for a v-day theme)

Oh, yes, I'll take Giles in the library for a thousand Alex.

Glad to hear your Grandpa is doing better :)

If I had that icon for realz for Valentine's Day, I would totally lick that.

A thousand sounds like a reasonable price for a man like Giles. ;)

Yes, thank you, Grandpa was just majorly depressed due to everything stacking up on his shoudlers all at once and being seperated from my grandma for so long - but now they have him back up and walking, I think he finally sees hope that he will get out of there (even though it will probably be a retirement apartment and not The Farm, at least it won't be a medical facility anymore and he can get back living with Grandma again). /hugs/

That's great news! Being back with Grandma again will probably be the best medicine anyway. Nothing beats being with family, and medical facilities smell bad, so getting away from that can't help but make him better I'd say. (take it from an expert, I'm in all those type of places all day and don't know how anyone, patient or staff can stand it, let alone get better)

Giles! Oh Giles, how I love thee. <3<3 :D

Everybody loves The Giles. He's The Giles. ;)

<3 back at ya'.

That chocolate story sounds just like something I'd do...haha

Glad to hear your grandpa is doing better, and letting you win cards..err...playing cards with you guys.
dodger_sister: holiday 2dodger_sister on February 19th, 2011 04:44 am (UTC)
Haha - The BFF showed up today with chocolates for us and my sister had to shamefully admit she never made it to the store to replace the chocolates she ate. But she shared the ones The BFF brought with her, so everyone got chocolate in the end! If I had bought chocolates, it would be like that episode of That 70s Show where Fez bought the huge box of chocolates for his girlfriend and then ate them all, and couldn't stop, and then found there was another layer underneath and freaked out and then ate those too. lol

Glad to hear your grandpa is doing better, and letting you win cards..err...playing cards with you guys.

Ha! Thanks. Grandpa got to feeling better once they got him back up on his feet. My dad can say they let us win all he wants, but Grandpa didn't even let me win when I was like seven! We are hardcore Euchre players in this family!
flawed_x_designflawed_x_design on February 20th, 2011 01:37 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! I've seen that episode! I'd do that too! Or maybe I'd wrap up the second layer of chocolates and be all: 'hey look how cool I am I went and put in extra effort and wrapped it in special pink cellophane' or something lol.

We are hardcore Euchre players in this family!
Word. You should get that on a T-shirt ;)
