Serious linkage.

Anime Night, now with bonus automatic weapons.

I'm really not sure how to describe anime night. It started off as a riotously fun party situation, and then the booze came out and it got even more entertaining. Fun was had by all, more beautifully cracktastic business plans came out, there was anime (King of Bandits Jing in 7th Heaven, all three episodes), pizza, and musicgeeking.

At the end of the night, as we were de-convening with much hilarity, JD glomped English. Standard JD bouncy hug, complete with not entirely sober.

English grabbed his AK-47, dove into the closet, and ordered us out. Out we went.

I'm still processing, and I'm not entirely sure what to think of this. It's at least mildly disturbing.

Still a little bit on edge. Work had a total systems crash last night for the server that has got the interviewing stuff on it. File server = fine. CATI server = not fine.

Happy pi day, at least.

I'm thinking of getting out early if possible. I could use a few hours of downtime on this, despite coming in an hour later than I'm technically supposed to.

Since I don't log in at work, I won't be replying to anything that may be locked and gathering comments, but I do have access to my e-mail at work (within reason) so I will be *reading* comments. Under a lock is the best place for discussion about all related topics, plz. (The HTML comments now allow you to not-log-in and reply, but I get the old-school comment notifications.)

The day continues weird.

Am seriously considering making a little phone call, after consultation with the rest of the parties involved. I'd rather that involved factors such as the relative location of 21st birthdays *not* come up, but of the people who would be in trouble for that, ecchi-chan, Myrrh, and I would probably be the least so. And in any case, glomps are par for the course.

It's v. bad precedent to let something like this pass.

It makes a great story, though. There's something about that element of surprise that makes it a wonderful slapstick moment.

For the record, JD didn't realize that the guy was quite that ... um. During the course of the night, the topic did not *quite* come up, and I tried mouthing the word "HO-MO-PHO-BIC", but JD does not read lips well at all. I settled for whispering "straight and uptight about it," which I thought should have been sufficient for most practical purposes. It wasn't a "let's bother the straight boy" glomp, it was a "YAY YOU ARE MY FRIEND!" glomp, which gets given to guys and girls alike.

It's that element of complete lack of reality that makes this whole affair so surreal. Ecchi-chan, I think the third shoe just dropped. Strike that. The third shoe just dropped.

So before this whole thing unwound so strangely, there were plans to *gulp* de-virginize me. Science fiction double feature, anyone? ;) I was air-drawing a V on my forehead; I know enough about the production that I know that part. Oh, and JD got a fondue pot. Saturday night/Sunday morning. We shall be resting up Saturday, and getting everything packed, then going Out Saturday night for the show, coming back rather giddy and loud to pick up hcolleen for work, and dropping her and JD off at the airport.

JD would have previously packed his bags. Depending on the timing, he'd be able to get a shower before heading off to the airport.

LJ Fudge

6 cups sugar.
3 sticks butter (real, not just bread lube).
12 oz can of evaporated milk.
Boil these until it hits 234°F or thereabouts.
Promptly realize that you have not yet broken the Trader Joe's 70% pound plus bar (what's left of it after the schadenfreude pie) into pieces. Panic, do so, stir vigorously until the stove is spattered but the chocolate is really and truly dissolved and melted.
Notice that the fudge is starting to fudge.
Stir in two jars of marshmallow fluff, even if they have been sitting around for a few months and have started to separate.
Stir until almost completely mixed, but not entirely, as it still retains pretty swirlies.
Leave a few minutes. The fudge will have started to become fudgey and stiff. Use tip of spoon to press a pencil design into the middle of the swirl.
Leave covered at room temperature overnight.
