Hello Hello!

First happy birthday to my fellow Ewan lover, lennongirl! Glücklicher Geburtstag, Schatz! I had a FABULOUS weekend, one filled with food, drink, whores, and fandom. All of which translates into AWESOME.

I flew out Thursday afternoon to Alabama to spend the weekend with southernbangel and marenfic, except Maren was a 'ho and "hurt herself," so I didn't get to see her until Friday night. SURE. That limp? SO FAKE. I didn't buy it for a minute. (Except she had obviously hurt herself, and I was so glad that I DID get to meet her!)

Lee and I ate, talked, drank, ate, loved, ate some more, laughed, shopped, ate, drank, and... did we do anything else? :D Fabulous foods from BBQ to elegant brunches to a grilled feta, basil and tomato sandwich that made my mouth SPARKLE with the good. Lee's hometown is UTTERLY CHARMING. That was a word I abused, but I couldn't help it! Rolling hills, beautiful landscape, trees trees trees... I loved her town. Her home was so happy and lovely! Lee has this MASSIVE porch (for an apartment? I was SHOCKED at the size and awesomeness) where we spent most of our time when not shopping, eating, and drinking. :D What a way to start your day: shaded porch with a breeze, linen curtains blowing in the breeze, and an iced coffee. I want to start EVERY DAY like that.

We met up with Maren and Mr. Maren (okay, Lee. I get it. He's adorable and you clearly want to steal EVERY HUSBAND EVER. At least you're picking the good ones!) for some Dreamland BBQ. All conversation screeched to a halt when the food came. Because it's that good. I think I heard Lee growl at me when I reached for a piece of meat she'd claimed... Afterward, we hit a local bar and hung out swapping sex stories. How you can tell that someone is awesome: if within 10 minutes you've dropped F and C bombs, everyone's laughing, and there's "my worst sexual experience" stories being traded, you've met people you can love. If I could pack up Maren and Lee and move them here (I'm Texan, after all) I would do so in a heartbeat.

Saturday we girls went to lunch and to see "Knocked Up" which I will be seeing again. I laughed my ass off. Oh, note to you all: when I laugh, I freaking laugh. I... may be obnoxious to see movies with. They didn't hit me (they did designate me as the Popcorn Holder... FOOLS.) so I don't think I donkey brayed. But I was slapping my thigh. It's a veritable "who's who" of funny, first of all, and it's REALLY REALLY GOOD. Hilarious, obviously, but very sweet and lovely, too. I didn't think it was possible to love Paul Rudd more, but I came away even MORE convinced that he should be in my Sacha/Will OTP and make it an OT3. Later, we hustled back to Maren's place (I WANT TO MOVE IN, omg - the cutest house ever) where Mr. Maren grilled and Mrs. Maren made a delish pasta salad. We laughed and talked (and watched Buffy) until midnight. There's nothing like watching shows you love with friends, especially when they're FUNNY friends. <3

Lee totally indulged me and took me to the Botanical Gardens before I had to fly out, and it was SO LOVELY. The gardens were so well maintained, filled with fantastic plants, and there were swings! Like, every few feet there was a swing. !! I want a swing on my porch, now. And their botanical gardens were free, which blew my little mind. How cool!! Lee is completely gracious, she stocked her house to meet any need I may have (I noticed you didn't have a portable defibrulator, what's that all about? GOD. My heart doesn't matter to you??) and was just (as always) wonderful to spend time with. Maren is absolutely fabulous, and I was SO HAPPY to get to finally meet her, too.


Today is the first day for 2 of my 3's summer camps, and I'm off to pick them up in a minute and hear all about art camp. \o/ I'm also dog sitting my folks rascally border collie, and I WORE HER OUT on a long walk this morning with my Sally Derg. Um... CLEARLY my folks aren't exercising their pup, because she is WORN OUT. Who noticed that she's a border collie? And that she's worn out from a 3 mile walk? o_0 Yeah. She's so spoiled. (But she has the sweetest, furriest face, and she's so cute and her ears are so perky, and she'll figure it out. <3) My garden is getting out of control and it's so hot today, I can't bear the thought of getting out there and doing anything. I'm going to have many peach sodas and read HP all over again, I think. I'll garden after sunset. :D

How is everyone? (I know I missed the "responsibility" kerfuffle, but I've caught up through the kindness of emails, heh.) savoytruffle is writing me a NANNY STORY, WHAT? And it's right here (I'm waiting for it to be finished before I comment, because I have issues about messing up the comment trees. I'm a dork, I know.) HEEEEEE!!! What else is going on? HEART HEART HEART!!!!

HI BETH HI! I'm sorry I didn't reply last night - family a'callin. And evidently, by that statement, you are no longer family. Man, I loved that movie. SO FUNNY.

Dad and Kate and Zack are in DC on a vacation while Annajoy is at camp. They've left me Lucky, and I'm training her (I'm Cesar Milaning her) and they will obey the rules when I explain how Lucky NEEDS TO BE WALKED EVERY DAY, OMG.

Ooooh, I hadn't thought of a Father's Day party! That's a great idea, though: BBQ, grillin', deserting... CHERRY PIE, because that's my man and our dad's fave. MMMMMMM. Let me figure things out and get back with you!

HELLO HELLO HELLO! I am so happy you had a good time. I am very jealous, reading about all the people who get to go visiting with other people. I can't wait until I can come and see you!

Kita and I wrote Spike/Angel RPG fic, over here. If you're still into them. I know your fannish interests have diverged lately. I'm sorry I don't have any Will/Sasha to offer you. *g*
Jun. 11th, 2007 05:40 pm (UTC)
YAY FOR FIC!! Oh, I'm still into A/S, I just need it written by people I trust/love. Hence the \o/ at your having written some! WHOO.

I can't wait until you can come see me, too!!!!! *blocks everything on the calendar for months so I'm free for you*
Jun. 11th, 2007 04:57 pm (UTC)
Guess whose back is perfectly fine now that you're gone? Suckas! Seriously, next time I promise to be more fun and less distracted by SEARING PAIN OMG.

I bet Sally was happy to see you-- did she do the full on butt wiggle? How about Mr. Stoney- did he do the full on butt wiggle too? Strap it on, Stoney, strap it on.
Jun. 11th, 2007 05:42 pm (UTC)
Dude, if that was you on low, then I can't imagine how awesome you must be on high. And by "high" I mean crack. I had a PERFECT time with you, so shut yo mouf, foo. My husband salivated when I described your house/trees/amount of land. We might move in next door, mm'kay?

Sally TEWTALLY did the full on butt wiggle and whine and follow for HOURS until she was assured I wasn't leaving again. Mr. Stoney wiggled his front butt. YES I WENT THERE. *molests you until you come from it*

I miss you already! My bed is a cold, lonely place without your big gaping vagina to cuddle me during the night. *emo tear*

Did you see that Maren's "back" is all better now? WHORE. And LIAR. She's a whorey liar. I need to move to Dallas to move away from her. Totes.

*fingers you to orgasm*

Jun. 11th, 2007 06:30 pm (UTC)
*offers my vagina to cloak the WORLD*

I didn't mention how pretty you are because then EVERYONE would try and see you and then you won't be my bitch no more. I mean, you're clearly Maren's bitch, but I was offered a toenail, and I JUMPED ON IT.

Do you need me to mention how your natural chestnut highlights made me so jellis? That you have porcelain skin? and a gentle touch? I HATE HOW MAREN'S A FILTHY PIRATE HOOKER AND LIAR.

I am so jealous that I am weeping over here all by my lonely lonesone.

I feel so unloved. (The fact that I see [Unknown LJ tag] on Wednesday is immaterial)
Jun. 11th, 2007 06:47 pm (UTC)
that was supposed to say lettered. Clearly I am to bereft to type straight.
Jun. 11th, 2007 06:48 pm (UTC)
...would it help to know that you were name dropped when we went through our litany of "you know who's awesome? ___ is awesome!"

In fact, I believe we may have STARTED with you. (We also said over and over how we want another WriterCon like, NOW.)

Sounds like a really nice trip. Knocked Up inspired a very similar reaction in me. And I may secretly ship Seth Rogan/Paul Rudd.

Jun. 11th, 2007 07:36 pm (UTC)
It was a GREAT trip! And man, I may need to go see Knocked Up again this weekend, SO. FUNNY.

I may ship Paul Rudd/Anyone at this point. LOVE HIM.

It was a fantastic visit. And I'm pretty sure that by the time we had devolved into gay sex/vampires/horribly politically incorrect laugh-fests over drinks that they were happy to see the backside of us. Hahaha!

The girls had a BALL at art camp - The Boy starts basketball camp next week. Man, we were ALL getting punchy that last week or two of school. All the rush rush, organization, need to stick to timetables? Gah. Summertime laziness has commenced! Ahhhhhhh. 5 more school days? It's all downhill!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
