A momentous day


Got into work a little later than I wanted, but still managed to make it in before my boss, which is always a good thing. Got a little work done (not much), and left right after lunch.

From there it was off to my lawyer's office for a truly momentous event - namely, Quincy now legally controls my life should I be unable to, and my stuff after I kick. I hope he doesn't get DRUNK WITH POWER. I called my Good Sister to let her know she was third in line of succession after Quincy and my mother, and her response was, "Get outta my way, I'm pullin' the plug!" Truly I weep for my (short) future. I then sent a message to Quincy's fag hag, Bobbi, and she said, "You guys are so in love - morbid, but in love." Of course I pointed out to her that it was simply a matter of practicality, since we all know that someday either I'll kill Quincy, or he'll kill me, so we just want to make sure our bases are covered (she agreed in that case it was the most sensible thing to do). So short of owning property and gettin' hitched, our lives are literally now intertwined. Yay! Signing those papers was the most natural thing in the world, especially since they read, "Quincy and Alan share a relationship based on love, trust and respect." Who could argue with that? (Well, some of you can, but I'll pre-emptively tell you to hush.)

Then, since it was payday, it was off to Mysterious Galaxy (Lemony Snicket on CD with Tim Curry), Game Empire (Carcassonne, Lord of the Rings and Settlers of Catan expansions - curse you jsciv!), and Wal*Mart (buncha crap I needed, as opposed to the crap I bought that I didn't need, including the 4-pack of Batman films). After that I came home, played a little CoH, packed up another box to mail to Quincy (including his anniversary present - 2 years on June 13!), and created a little demon hero (dark/dark defender, for those who grok CoHspeak).

Tomorrow it's an easy day - I'm the only one in the office, and we're cutting the day short to say goodbye to our AVC of Development. Looks like LYC coffee on Saturday (little Johnny's in town from Tucson so I want to see him), board meeting Sunday, and tentative SDQSF organizational meeting on Monday, but basically a relaxing weekend. Yay!

OK, off to bed. More posts tomorrow no doubt. :)

Congratulations! So when do those other tying-yourself-to-another-person acts take place?

(Note: I was referring to the commitment ceremony and so on, not anything else!)

Gotta wait until he gets out of the Navy, so April 2007 at the earliest.

I liked Batman Returns just for Michelle Pfeiffer. And since I did the Riddler costume, I do have a soft spot for Jim Carrey's Riddler. But despite the absolute horridness of Batman & Robin, Uma Thurmond made a helluva Poison Ivy. :P

Well, except Arnold, and they totally screwed up any good Alicia Silverstone could have brought to the role. And personally I can't stand Chris O'Donnell.

Yippee! Congrats! That's so exciting - to know that you're truly committed. Looking forward to the commitment ceremony - I assume you'll be having one when he comes back :)

Nope - gotta wait until he gets out of the Navy, so April 2007 at the earliest. Looking ahead I realized the next Friday the 13th after that is July of that year, so maybe then. :)

Okay, April 2007 or so it is. I'll keep an eye out for the perfect wedding present :)

I'm assuming the same verbage is put in for straight couples, but I liked it regardless. :)

Congrats! That is so exciting and wonderful!

Also, have fun with all your new games and so forth. Settlers of Catan expansions...they never end! Which LotR game/expansion did you pick up?

Also dark/dark defenders (also known as DDDs or D3s -- took me an embarrasingly long time to figure that out on the forums) rock! Hmm...maybe I will pop over and join you with my dark/*. I created alts of my main toon on all the servers, all (but one; I ran out of possible combos) with dark primaries, but no two alike. :)

I got Seafarers (expansion and 5-6 player expansion), and I already had the LotR board game, so I got the Sauron expansion. Whee! I like the mechanics of the game - everyone works together, and in the end you're all defeated by Sauron anyway! :)

Yeah, so far he rules. He's all red with black tribal markings, and his name is Miasmic Demon (on Freedom, I believe).

Yeah, the expansions do tend to throw the game into Sauron's favor. I don't think we ever won it using the Friends and Foes expansion!

Think I have Seafarers... I haven't gotten any of the expansions beyond that.

Will have to come hang with Miasmic Demon sometime!
