In family news, The Nephew went to a birthday party at a Bouncy House/Arcade place. His dad was playing this shooting game and it was two player but The Nephew said he didn't want to play, that he would just watch. Then this little kid came over and picked up the second gun and started pretending that he was shooting too. So The Nephew turns to the kid and says, "Do you want to play? You can play, I have money," and pulls two quarters out of his pocket and puts them in the game so the kid can play. How awesome is my boy?! When they were walking away, my brother stops him and says, "Buddy, I know that kid didn't say 'thank you', but that was a really nice thing you did," and The Nephew goes, "Yeah. I know." I LOVE THAT KID!!
For my birthday, The BFF wrote me a story. I don't want to say too much about it because she only gave me the first chapter - she hasn't finished the rest and I know that I get protective of my own fic while I am still working on it. But I will say this...it is Jensen/Misha and it is awesome!!! I am so excited for you all to get to read this when she is done. But in the meantime you should go read the fic she wrote for her birthday, wherein Sam and Dean hunt a ghost in The White House and Sam gets his nerd on. Hail To The Chief.
Also, vikingprincess wrote me another chapter in her 'Chain Link Fence' verse and if you haven't read it, you should. It is The Walking Dead fic about Shane and Rick's relationship starting when they meet in elementary school, then middle school, and the piece she wrote for my birthday wherein they are in high school. She captures all the things I love about their friendship and manages to tackle the difficult job of writing Shane POV perfectly. Read it and then poke her to write the final (or final two?) pieces in the 'verse. Fast Car is here and there are links to the previous two stories found in the header.
Also, THANKS A BAZILLION to fragrantwoods for the fireworks V-gift (someday we will have scratch-n-sniff computers so I can smell the perfect afterburn - what? Yes, I like the smell of fireworks) and denyce for the delicious looking cupcake!!
I am slowly catching up on LJ-things after having gotten so far behind when my brother was visiting and then the week of sleeping that followed. I am making myself not comment on everything, and I'll be slowly picking away at it this week.
In Sum: I have Law And Order: SVU on in the background and Garret Dillahunt is playing a creepy ass child-molester. How can a guy that funny play a guy that creepy?
