Back to having nothing to say.
Had a good weekend. Saturday night we went to a dinner party for a friend's birthday. His niece and nephew were there and the two of them were absolutely delightful. His niece who is eleven, was thrilled to be allowed to join the adults at dinner. During dessert she started telling me and another woman all about her friends and who was "dating" who. Her fifteen year old brother (who was g to the a.y.) brought out his sketch book of dresses he had designed. All in attendance decided we simply *must* adopt these children and trade them off each week until their father noted that, although the plan was fine with him, we would also have to pay for braces. Damn. We can't afford that.
I had another birthday to go to that involved watching the late show at the I.max but when I showed up, they had locked the doors. I curse myself for being so late and therefore a shitty friend, then went home and went to bed. It was awesome.
On Easter we had breakfast with my parents. I went to church, where my father once again badgered me about being a bad C*tholic and told me I needed to not take Communion. He also mentioned that A_ and I should consider having our marriage validated by the church before we have kids. Despite doing a weekend engaged retreat the church hosted (although there were non-C*tholics, A_ was the only non-christi*n. Which was comfortable for him, I'm sure.) we never finished getting our special dispensation to get married. It is obviously a big concern to my father, who no doubt thinks I'm going to hell.
Um, yeah. So as always, that was uncomfortable. We finished Easter at home with the traditional Easter falafel. Yum.
Um. That's about it. I went to a big fancy shindig tonight to present an award so I got all dressed up. I was going to have A_ take a picture so I could *finally* turn in my C**per application since I had actually combed my hair for once, but my camera died.
Big love, by the way, to Jenn who kindly offered up her house if I get picked. (Actually, several of you have a weird but endearing desire to invite some crazy infertile to stay with you...) I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for being so openhearted. Gah. I love you guys.
