I know it is approaching crazy o'clock, since I'm probably going to wake up at 6:30 again tomorrow because that is how my beach week has been going. My skin has begun to peel from sunburn - but it's mostly on my forehead and nose. Of course, between sunburn and a pool injury, my nose now looks about two steps up from Mad-Eye Moody's.
Anyway, just wanted to let the records show before he left: My step-cousin is now definitely my new favorite person. (Prior to yesterday, missinfinitive
was my new favorite person, which would suggest either I'm getting better at making friends or I've just met a few really awesome people lately.) I mean the step-cousin who goes to Anime Boston and used to cosplay and writes poetry, not the older one who lives in N'Orleans.
It's hard to describe, but we talked a lot and he played me some excellent dubstep and we almost watched Fellowship of the Ring
together, but he's seen it a dozen or so times so it's not quite as exciting. We have a ton of stuff in common, including several things I wish we didn't, and it just feels a lot easier to talk to him than pretty much anyone else in my family right now. Also, he apologized to the group in general for spending 96% of the wedding huddled away in a corner with a girl, even though it was the last time he was going to see her for months. Basically I'm just really glad he was able to come to this trip and wasn't living with his dad, who apparently doesn't have hot water in his house, three years after buying it. And I spent half a beach walk last night trying to convince him to watch "Blink," which worked last year for another cousin. He likes the idea of Doctor Who
and is into weird horror movies, so I figured it'd be a good place to start.
He's also a Wiccan, because witches are cool. I got a tarot reading from his cards, which turned out more uplifting than depressing, but still seemed fairly accurate. (Major concerns this year: Money, judgment, the eight of wands.)
I mean, I did a whole bunch of other stuff at the beach too. As I mentioned before, I got sunburned like whoa. I played Hide and Sneak with my family and hid in a closet with L for half an hour. We went sailing two days ago, and the waves were intense, and our boat flipped over! That was exciting.
I guess I should do an Otakon recap at some point. Along with post fic, figure out my con/beach situation for next year, watch The New World
and maybe get excited for Moffat Series 6B, compose an operetta, and post more fic. But for now, those were the thoughts I wanted to put on the Internet.
(For the record, L disdains the idea of having a blog unless you've coded it yourself. Hehe.)
Enjoy your days, ducks.
