Since Egan had a company dinner, I went to my TKD class, but skived off of sparring, thus receiving a rash of shit when people found out why I was cutting out early. Especially with GuTTer MuNKi having just left town.
We finally met up with Egan at around 10pm when he was forced to accept the fact that I wasn't going to be put off by excuses. He was worried about that being late for the kids. Little did he know. ^_^
Since Starbucks was shutting down, and neither of us really felt like spending $ gratuitously on food we didn't need, we decided to head out here to the house. The same house that I had told myself only hours before did not need a frenzied pickup, because it wasn't like we were going to end up here or anything. So, much to my chagrin, the house was (and still is) at pretty much an all-time low, messiness-wise, except for the room pictured in the post below. Egan very graciously assured me that he'd seen worse. Apparently he traveled through Nagasaki back in '45.
The kids and I had planned on watching Merlin and staying up most of the night, as this is becoming a tradition while GuTTer MuNKi is gone. They were determined to start it at midnight or later, so after some comfortable gabbing, the revelation of Sluggie's abysmal lack of US geography knowledge, some playing with Fishy's tornado in a bottle, and the obligatory blogsurf, we fired up the movie. Merlin is a 3 hour movie, and we started it at about 2:45 I think. That will give you some idea of when it finished. ^_^ Egan tucked The Prawn into her floor nest when she finally passed out, and Fishy conked out a little later, but the rest of us managed to keep going, with the aid of coffee and Pepsi. You'd be surprised at the amazing amount of sexual innuendo you can find in that film. I mean seriously. It's rife with "magical growing sticks" and yanking on swords and suchlike. Egan and I giggled like schoolkids through most of the film.
The cats were able to magically sense Egan's famous love for all felinekind, and showered him with kitty love and fur. Even Enya. Enya, who never comes out for new people. Enya, who is terrified at the very thought of strangers. Enya, who decided to rub her teeth on Egan's toes and stomp back and forth across his legs, wave her tail around in his face and settle behind his shoulder on the couch. I think Egan did get a bit of a start when Emmett decided to attack Enya while she was loafing there. She makes really loud noises when that happens.
The light of day was breaking when the movie ended, so it was off to the trampoline to wake Egan up for the drive back to the hotel. The safety net is high, but Egan can jump higher. After I fished the kids out of the woods and splinted Egan's leg, he hopped into his PT cruiser and drove off into the sun
It was a wonderful day/s. I do have pics, so when the other machine is up and running, I'll put some up. If Egan offers me an appropriate bribe, I'll only put up the ones he liked. If you offer me more, I'll do them all. ;)
