Week made of awesome!

This week I got to do the following:

* Spend several many hours with my six-year-old nephew (he can spot a police car six blocks away and says very firmly that we are not allowed to manipulate (!) his words -- such the vocab!)

* Play "I spy with my little eye" with nursedarry's six-year-old twins (Me: "I spy with my little eye something yellow." Twin 1: "Is it [twin 2]'s bogeys?")

* Hang out with my supremely smart/talented/interesting brother and introduce him to the movie District 9 (in exchange he introduced me to Dead Silence, which cements my belief that clowns and ventriloquist's dummies are CREEPY AS HELL)

* Go to my half-sister's wedding (she's six months pregnant, so when the minister got to the part about "Will you accept any children God sends you?" somebody shouted, "It's a bit late for that, isn't it?" and we all fell about laughing)

* Have lunch with a friend from high school whom I have not laid eyes on in about 30 years (we're, um, wider and grayer than we used to be, but still had lots to talk about)

* Spend a couple of hours with my 92-year-old grandmother (who still goes to her French Club and walks every single day, I should be so lucky when I'm 92)

* Do happy hour with a guy who was my boss at Domino's Pizza about 25 years ago (the day I walked in to apply he and one of the cooks were quoting Monty Python; I dropped the next line of dialog and he said, "Excellent, you're hired!)

and finally...

* Take to lunch and get to know cassie_black12 and alovelycupoftea, brought here by nursedarry from across the pond, who are delightful and interesting women, just as nice in person as they are here on LJ

* Adventure to the house of lijahlover, who was kind enough (THANK YOU!!!) to have nursedarry and the rest of us all over along with veritas03 who is not from across the pond but who adventured from the wilds of the American South to be there and who is also lovely in person :) We were highly amused because as we drove up we could see the males fleeing the premises ("Aaaaaagh! Mum's crazy online smut-writing friends are here -- run, run, run!!!")

(Alas, I did have to miss out on Sunday lunch at ladyoneill's house, where I'm sure A Good Time Was Had By All!)

So yeah, week made of awesome :) I could not have crammed in more excellence if I'd bribed the aliens who run the universe personally.

Oh and yeah, that's my jacket LOL! If you haven't got my proper address I can get it to you, and maybe you could stick in that recipe for the lemon bars while you're at it :)

I will need your addy and the lemon bars were from a mix called Krusteaz :)

I loved the part of your post about your grandmother. :) Also the bit about the Monty Python quote landing you a job! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
Yeah, those were my guys you saw making their escape. They went in search of steak, which they found. Also found an Irish pub (O'Dowds?) that we revisited once they picked me up from Lijahlover's house. That was nice. Had a guiness with dinner and finished with an Irish coffee (sans whipped cream). That warmed me up a bit!
Again, it was happy to escape the wilds of the American South to meet you all. Definitely a memorable afternoon.
Thank you for the friending. :)
