Still writing up WriterCon experience. Will probably post it in three separate parts starting tomorrow evening. Birthday was awesome today. Got drunk with childhood friend and parents. Love them to death. Will probably haul my lobster-pink, sunburned ass to the beach for one more day of vacay before we leave Cape and head back to the city Saturday morning. Lots of dirty pictures to share of me and mere_ubu wielding dildos and such at WC. Now I bet you're really curious, eh? I suggest you all go to Minneapolis. It's a lovely city.

Happy Birthday, sweetie! Hoping this next year is wonderful and good to you. Glad you're having good weather and agree that Minneapolis was fantastic. Miss you and sending a big birthday hug. Enjoy your last day with the sun. All my best.

Aw, kissy icon. I love. I miss you guys, too. WriterCon is sort of like this alternate dimension where all of these far-flung people coelesce and then disperse when the event is over. I should be able to meet you in my lobby and drag you off for a day of hilarity, damnit! Next time you're in NYC for whatever reason, drop me a line. I haven't seen NancyKay in about a year, so I'm do for a meet up.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BAY-BEE!!! I hope you've had a wonderful day. I think that I left my heart in Minneapolis. And maybe my liver, too. *takes a moment of silence to honor the Bojito* I stumbled home from the airport and straight into some crazy-ass extended-family drama, but I wanted to make it here by midnight to wish you a good one. Hugs and hugs to you, and I'm so glad that we got to meet and wave dildos at one another. Mwah!

Hee! That icon makes me laugh every time. And I did have a wonderful day. Sometimes the low key bdays prove to be your favorites and I think this one ranks high.

Condolences on the extended family drama. It's the hard truth of reality to be dragged from cloud nine vacation euphoria into familial squabbles. I hope it's nothing too serious. At least you've got your man and little lady to help shore you up :)

*hugs back* I think I also want an icon of Buffy and Spike that says "I'm so glad that we got to wave dildos at one another." How sweet and unassuming with a side of raunch. I think that sums you up pretty well, huh, Mere?

Happy birthday! I'm really glad you had fun, and can't wait for those pics!

I'll post in about half an hour. The internet connection is weird here, so I have to switch computers and plug and different one in... and... and... I'm glad I'll be at home this weekend.

Are you going to WriterCon UK? It sounds like it's a lot of fun and much smaller than what I just survived.
Sotiassddgr on August 24th, 2009 06:09 am (UTC)
Soooo sorry it took forever to get to this, but I had to catch a flight soon after I replied to this entry :P

I'm not going to make it to WriterCon UK, no :( That's the downside of a (very) long distance relationship: takes up all your money and you can't go to WriterCons *cries*

i wanted to post birthday fic for you yesterday, but my mind is all dried up, so there may have to be belated birthday fic. and really, up until midnight, i thought it might happen, that inspiration may strike and a little something would write itself in the nick of time. not so much, and thus i didn't even get to making any sort of happy birthday post until the morning after.

although you'll be making me think of mornings after for some time. 6 am on nicollet mall wrapped in a dirty hoodie and feeling, for the first time in maybe forever, the coming together of where i've been and where i am. and you are so much of where i am. and on saturday morning i just soaked in that, walking up and down the mall for hours looking for an egg sandwich, wanting to do nothing in the world more than exactly what i was doing. thinking of you and watching downtown minneapolis wake up.

so mornings after. are you. and this one is yours. happy happy birthday, baby.

Your sentiments, romantic and poetic and heartful as only you can make them, are lovely. I'm happy to be your mornings after, as though I've rewritten the bad taste that the unfortunate phrase has. I'm sorry I didn't actually get to share it with you. Sleepy, drunken me.

the coming together of where i've been and where i am. and you are so much of where i am.
You don't have to get into it here, but what does that mean? I didn't realize I represent a transition in your life.

BTW, don't fret over bday fic. I wasn't tapping my foot, looking at my inbox shouting "Where the heck is my bday fic!? I demand bday fic now!" If something comes - great - and if it doesn't I'll just wait 'til I get to beta something for you and greedily read it as though it were bday fic :P

know you've been road-tripping all day. if you want, call me up tonight. i'll tell you, in so much as i can tell anything. words dance and are bad for catching.

if you're tuckered out and not in a phone-ing mood, i intend to put phone minutes on my cell tomorrow for a stint (for a number of purposes), and could call you (imagine).

hey, babe. I'll give you a call tomorrow evening. Been busy writing up the con stuff today, trying to prepare for work tomorrow and generally getting my life in order (not to mention trying to work out hotel stuff for DC this weekend - bah). When would be a good time?
virtue is relative at beststreet_kitty on August 10th, 2009 02:04 am (UTC)
tomorrow night i should be around after about 5:30pm my time. for less kid interruption, after 9pm my time is good. take your pick.

good luck with returning to work. tricky loves the monster magnets, by the way. i haven't showed him the colorforms yet--saving new shiny toy goodness up for a rainy day. he thinks you're mad cool though and says you can come and visit any time, which is saying a lot coming from him.

ClawofCat: spike pleasureclawofcat on August 10th, 2009 02:49 am (UTC)
Yay, kid approval! Heh, I passed his 5 year old cool test. That seems like a big deal.

Really glad that he likes the magnetic monsters, too. Was hoping he would. It's one of my favorite formats.

BTW - must see Nightwing costume photos if that goes anywhere. I approve so hard. Dick Grayson was my first fictional crush before Spike. I was obsessed with the hotness of him. I scoured the internet and comic books for issues that had scenes of him kissing women or semi-undressed. What a man... still heart him.

Like, check this out - Nightwing & Oracle. He's in love with Barbara Gordon, the former Batgirl, who has been wheelchair bound since the 1980s after Joker shot her through the spine and paralyzed her. She's smart, like super smart (hence Oracle since she basically provides all the info to the superheroes and is a hacker), beautiful, brave as fuck and tragic as hell. Win. Win. Win.

Wish I could also find the Catwoman/Nightwing kiss in Nightwing #52. Hot! They're up in the rafters of a warehouse, thugs start shooting at them, Cats lays down and drags Dick on top of her between her legs, whispers "I like danger. You like danger. Let's get dangerous together." And kisses him... buh!

BTW - I was fucking about on wikipedia and saw that Asmodeus is the demon of lust. I was thinking about trying to participate in a round of seasonal_spuffy. Dunno if I have it in me. But I thought that concept, and something dark and fucked up, could be an interesting ave. for a S6 shot. Thoughts?

I also need comic book icons. Phooey.
