She's Baaaaaack!  
Hi all you splendiferous folk out there! I have officially returned from my 5-week sojourn across our U.S. of A and it's good to be back. I got back Thursday afternoon and spent that time with my parents bequeathing presents to them and regailing them with tales of the road. Yesterday I slept in quite late and literally spent the entire day (12 hours?) watching the last 5 weeks of So You Think You Can Dance?, which is so my show of the summer. Today I'll be seeing three of my friends and then going over to my girl Susanna's house in Brooklyn to have a sleepover/Angel-thon. Like I said, good to be back. We'll be watching the season 4 story-arc in which both Angelus and Faith return. Whee!

Next week I'll be dragging my heels to work, which puts a slight damper on the fun however necessary it may be. I think I've mentioned I didn't work on any fic on the road, but there were a few short pieces that I had more or less completed before I left that I might start pushing around the page again and cleaning up. I really, really want to be able to give you guys something to sink your teeth into. Not to mention that my mental and emotional state has vastly improved now that college is a month and a half behind me. My anxiety and worry about the future has significantly decreased and I'm really starting to feel like "me" again. I'd like to hold onto that feeling for as long as possible.

I don't have pictures uploaded yet, but when I do I"ll be sure to share some highlights of my adventures across the country. Some of those highlights even included visiting with my darling only_passenger, hello_spikey, and sevendeadlyfun on my drive back eastward. It was a fandom orgasm all within a four-day period. For the record, I can also verify that Seven's ass is, indeed, pinchable.

yay for the s4 episodes with Faith and Angelus(not to mention Willow drops by)! Sounds like you had a great vacation too :)

It was wonderful! Especially cause my friend has a huge-screen TV.

And your icons rule! *loves on Faith even more*
M: Faith gritspankulert on July 19th, 2008 01:53 am (UTC)
hehe I've done almost two 100 icons challenges with Faith as the subject, and I could probably do two more ;)

Yayyyy for having a great time and yayyy squared for feeling altogether better!

Welcome back! *hugs*

Thank you! I"m sure I've missed out on a ton. I'm utterly unprepared to dive back in! *bites fingernails*

Baby steps, baby steps! ;-)

Thanks! It's great to be back in NYC. I missed it.

Look forward to many photos of your fantastic trip.
My parents and I have had to look at them in installments because there have been so many.

Welcome home!

*waves enthusiastically*

Last night I was with a friend for dinner and we discussed the unusually jolly and naive nature of the protagonist from "The Romance of Lust." It's been a great conversation starter =)
Herself_nycherself_nyc on July 19th, 2008 02:19 am (UTC)
Jolly and naive, yep, that describes pretty much everybody in that book!
Sevensevendeadlyfun on July 13th, 2008 12:35 am (UTC)
It really, really is. :P

It was good to see you and you absolutely MUST take the train up sometime so we can have more time (Gus is totes welcome, of course!) together.

ClawofCat: gropeclawofcat on July 19th, 2008 01:32 am (UTC)
*squeezes back*

I would love to come back. I was only just holding back my pouting and dashing toward the leg of your kitchen table. Gus would have had to pry me off with a crowbar. Not pretty!

Though your boys might have been rather entertained by it all.

Welcome back, hon. Glad you had fun!
ClawofCat: giddyclawofcat on July 19th, 2008 01:34 am (UTC)
Ahahaha! Your icon cracks me up.

Good to type to you again, honey. I only wish we could have crossed paths in Texas.

I gotta catch up with all your fics! I'm sure you've written 30 since May. Gah...

Ahahaha! Your icon cracks me up.

Hee! Wish I could take credit for either the quote or the icon, but sadly, neither is mine. You are watching Dr. Horrible, aren't you??

Good to type to you again, honey. I only wish we could have crossed paths in Texas.

I know! I've all missed your lovely comments and your beautifully gritty fic. *smooch*

And meeting would've been great, but following your few posts on the matter, I was working pretty much every day you were in Texas, so even if you'd been nearby, I wouldn't have been able to make it. :( I'm glad you had a good time, though!

I gotta catch up with all your fics! I'm sure you've written 30 since May. Gah...

Just nearly. :P

I have recap posts for May and June, if those help. I, obviously, haven't done a recap for July, yet. :P

You are, of course, likely overwhelmed with the backlog and such, so I understand if you don't catch up, but I'd be honored to hear what you think about anything I've done since you left, if anything catches your fancy.

Welcome back, sweetie! I hope you pinched Seven for everyone. ;)

OMG, I love So You Think You Can Dance beyond all reason. (Although, I gotta' say that no one has grabbed me yet this year quite like little Sabra did last year. And no one's as hot as Anya. Rrrawr.)

Seven is a filthy harlot that needs lots of groping and attention to be satisfied. I was rooting around on her living room floor at one point on hand and knees, ass in air. She walks in the door and is like "If only I could see that every day!" Woo-hoo! She's a spunky little firecracker.

*ahem* Anyway... SYTYCD is amazing. I totally love Katee. And *gasp* the pas de deux was incredible!

Glad you had a good time and that you're feeling good about things. (But I thought you said you were going to stop by...?) Good choice on the Angel-thon - I had a friend over this weekend and we just watched those same eps!
ClawofCat: angelfaith glanceclawofcat on July 19th, 2008 01:39 am (UTC)
I thought swinging by was a possibility too, but it would have taken us way off our route. I didn't realize how central and south Harrisburg is. After Cleveland we took the 90 straight to Niagra Falls along the Great Lakes and back into NYS. I'm sure a visitation could be worked out one weekend though, especially if things are slow at work. After days of driving 13 hours straight, a couple on a bus doesn't seem like anything :)

Word to Angel!

How are doing, honey? The nausea cleared up more?

It was so, so wonderful seeing you. Gah! *clings* I also thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as a super hero. The kid in me, apparently, hasn't died.
