So I haven't even bothered to sort through my flist yet, but I'm making a post before I forget everything that's happened over the past two days.
It started off with a drive to beat the weather. We were going to leave at 9 but then it was supposed to rain/snow/sleet/shit-from-the-sky so my mom decided the night before that we would leave at 8. Given that I stayed up until about 4 in the morning the night before (THANK YOU IMMATURIA CHAT ILU) I was sort of tired and not wanting to be awake, but I managed to nap in the car a little bit and was fine thereafter. I didn't have to drive until we hit Connecticut though, and that was about the last 2 hours of the drive, so not bad at all. Got to my grandmother's around 2 and was happy snappy from there.
So. Ahem. I love my grandmother dearly, but she can be a bit of a busybody sometimes, and I know she loves me, but sometimes I wish she would just stop talking, because I HAVE NO IDEA what an empty margarine tub has to do with using a glue gun.
Other than that, I got to see my great uncle Jon and cousin Michelle (actually first cousin once removed, I think? In actuality she's my mom's cousin, so I'm not really sure how we're related) for the first time in a very long time. Like, it's been long enough that this was my first discussion with him now that he considers me an adult, and the first time she's apparently seen me since I was a baby. That being said, I love my Italian side of the family so much. And my uncle John is trying to turn me into an alcoholic, I think, because he kept trying to give me glasses of alcohol and seemed very happy when I actually agreed to taste what everyone else was drinking. Now, I can officially add to the list of alcoholic beverages I've actually tried, and thus Frangelico > Sambuca > Champagne.
Also pretty sure my grandmother owns basement cat, and I probably should have pointed that out to my mom because she would understand and find it quite funny.
And for those who've missed my AIM status, it's been snowing up here. It snowed about 2 inches on Monday and has been snowing pretty much all day today, even though the weather said it was supposed to stop in the afternoon. And, as I've said previous, I just keep watching the snow pile up and all I can think about is how I need a couple nations here and a bottle of coke so that we can have epic battle. Alas, I lack both, so I'll just imagine how epic it will be and hope that people can actually come visit me (E:OIFNSIOEHRFESF THIS IDEA MAKES ME SO HAPPY) while it's here to be enjoyed.
I also have storybits for those who I told I would write, so just bother me if you want to read it and I'll probably post it later tonight. And keep bothering me after that so I actually work on it, although given all my classes it might be slow going...
Unfortunately I won't be able to stay up super late tonight catching up with everyone because OMG LAB ANIMAL ROTATION WTF at 7:30 tomorrow, but his weekend looks promising.
Guys, I've missed you all intensely and immensely, and I'll be sure to catch up with everyone later <3
Sleep? What is this sleep thing you speak of?
I'm leaving in 45 minutes guys. I love you all, and I'll talk to you again in 2 days (or I'll text you, for any of you who can't wait quite that long ;D)
Got a hair cut today~ It's a little shorter than I was expecting, but it's growing on me slowly. I think I'll like it a lot more after it grows out a little.
Will finish those dolls later today or tomorrow morning. Then I need to finish the dolls for my friends at college XD
Went shopping with my mom. Got a pair of boots at Kmart (20 dollars :D) that will hopefully work for Canada. Leather gloves were harder to track down, but I will find them yet >___> After that I just need to find a pair of pants and make the scarf for his uniform, and the biggest part is finding/making a jacket. Hrm...anyone on my flist who knows how to sew willing to barter? Obviously I could straight up pay for it, but I'm also willing to trade dollies/crocheted goods in addition to money if anyone's interested in things of that variety.
Also to Bela~~~ It looks like the bowling coupon is only good for the bowling alley near my house, but I'll bring enough moneys to get us a goodly amount of ice cream from Friendlys.
