trust, best friends forever, snot-nosed brats

Thanksgiving in Summary

So. Heh. That was a lot of babble last night.

In summary:
  • Thanksgiving went well.
  • Food was good.
  • Company was better.
  • No one killed anyone.
  • There were a few close moments when Darkside's father made a snide comment about something in a movie, but no one had to leave the room to avoid punching anyone in the nose. Snark about gays by someone who's neither gay nor friendly to the community usually gets met with open hostility from me. I showed self-restraint.
  • I got a headache from too much TV.
  • Darkside and I spent about an hour with me trying to leave but neither of us actually feeling like me leaving. This was very nice, and I got hugged.
  • Much giggling occurred.

All is well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

Lunch with Dawn

Dawn, and Dawn's Dave, dropped by, and hauled me out to lunch. We had fun. I got to giggle with her quite a bit. I'd been hoping for a little more just-girl-talk time, but this was all right. Dawn's Dave is nicer when he's calmed down and not horrendously keyed up over his wedding or his fiancée's graduation.

Dawn warns me that if I'm not careful, Darkside's parents might start contemplating weddings without our consent.

There was assorted geekage. I have hugs to pass on to Darkside. I also must remember to update the list of people that the four of us trust with Darkside -- I'd spaced my Big Bro and Dawn.
