I reign triumphant in all things.  

Most things.  Okay, some.  Fine, ONE.

Aidan (the sexy laptop) is here.  HAH!  Nolan and BIL went for a beer, and everyone else is asleep.  Have been able to play!  Hooray!

I did read half of The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray on the trip up, as well as work on a new chapter for Marrying Pansy Parkinson.  I even looked at Strength, Chance or Fate.  I would love to have those wrapped up.  Love.

I'm sitting in my sister's enormous historical FOUR FLOOR, six bedroom house with the most charming details, like the wavy window panes and original pine floors, exposed staircase complete with skylight at the top, fireplaces in nearly every room, and crown moulding to die for.   I love this house.  To bad she's moving soon.  
My sister and I have had so much fun.  We're five years apart, and were never truly close until she had children.  But we enjoy cooking together, which we did a little of.  And a lot of giggling.  And discussing matters great and small.  She also introduced me to Pandora radio.  (AM IN LOVE.  Love it more than queso, than The Rangers, than Cormac McLaggen...  Well maybe not Cormac.  You get the picture, though.)

I, in turn, introduced her to Queen.

I know, I know, you ask me, "Where were you in her formative years, when she should have been exposed to awesome music?"

I answer, "See Persephone's Dating History."  :P

Anyhow, I have a cute sister story.  


Emily.  (rubs her eyes because she's sleepy)  Oh, I just got mascara all over my face, didn't I?"

Me.   Yes, Alice, you did.

Emily (looks at me quizzically)

Me.  Nolan calls me Alice Cooper when I do that.

Emily.  I don't know who she is.

Me. (giggles hysterically and google him for her to see)

Emily.  Give me a break!  I just learned about Queen this afternoon!  Baby steps, sis.  Baby  steps.


I do so love my sister.

I feel:: tiredtired
I hear:: creaking old house=love.

Hehe!! Love your sister's sense of humor, although that's like calling Stevie Nicks a 'he' and Lindsey Buckingham a 'her'. It's like they should teach this stuff in school.

Hard Rock 101. Or Heavey Metal 2304. I'd take it.

I'm so glad you're there to educate Emily. :) I'm also glad you're having a nice visit. Have fun shopping tomorrow!

Cormac McLaggen's better than queso? Wowzer, girl.

Well, let's just say I wouldn't want to do without either one.

HEE! You're sister sounds ADORABLE! I'm glad you're having a good time. :D

And it's strangely amusing to me that Nolan calls you Alice. *giggles*

I do tend to wear a lot of Mascara, and when it runs... the result is inevitable.

Also, Nolan thinks he's funny. :)

Wow, you're like 40 minutes from where I live, Perse! And I'm on break, cool! Don't suppose you've checked out the Academy, have you? It's awesome this time of year (or next month).

My BIL works there on the yard a bunch. They're with Campus Crusade for Christ.

I have not walked through, but I'm looking at a brochure, actually right now. We're only about a block away!

Yay for writing *cheers*

I can't help but feel you neglected your sister's education, but at least you're starting to make amends now ;P Her house sounds amazing!
Carrie Leigh: Pansy flowercarrie_leigh on March 19th, 2008 12:56 pm (UTC)
Her house IS amazing. Built in 1846. Has cool bells on Each floor for what used to be a servant call system, and a front and back staircase. I truly love it!

YAY for awesome sister time! Sounds like you guys are having fun!

p.s. I so need music history education. Mum's only good for Abba and Dad knows everything but doesn't care. *sigh*
