In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?
Well two weeks away from Christmas and I am semi organised. Got all the kids presents and most of the family ones. Just got to wrap them now, cards gone and what I have not got f*ck it! Got the whole family, including the father in law's girlfriend from hell (do you think Sam and Dean are too busy to come and to an exorcism on Christmas Day? Dean, TURKEY!!!) The bitch I hate her but I shall play nice until she pisses me off or tries to get my daughter to called her "Grandma" again. My mother in law died 5 1/2 years ago and she is her grandma.
Me and my brother will cook all the vegetables, my father in law the turkey etc and we will eat drink and be merry - hopefully. My son is autistic so Christmas is tough for him but my 2 year old is raring to go already. She has a little Mrs Santa outfit for the day and a fairy outfit for New's Year Day. I so said I would never make my daughter a girly girl - ah heck it is Christmas lol!!! The Christmas tree looks nothing like it was originally having been re-decorated about a thousands since putting it up.
I am asking for cash for my Asylum fund as for my first weekend away alone for what will be nearly 10 years I am gonna damn enjoy it. My partner in crime, flippyoung, will see to that. So glad I met her via SPN, she is a real cool friend and puts up with so much. I love her! Meeting for a drink on Friday night so that will be crazy usually is. Hope she likes her present!!!
Mikey was a shepherd in his nativity play on Thursday. looked great, was OK, cried a bit but he was original. Most shepherds have sheep - Mikey had a rather large cuddly brown teddy bear. Well that is initiative!!
I wish everyone who reads this drivel a very happy Christmas/holidays and may every wish come true for New Year - as long as you don't wish for Jensen because he is MINE!! I tell you MINE!!!
Me and my mate Flipp went to see Jason in concert on Saturday night and it was amazing. After a few mishaps, like me putting the keys through my letterbox and then realising I had left my mobile phone in side. Not really too much of a problem as Flipp has a phone I can use to call hubby to pick me up. Well not much of a problem provided you actually know your hubby's mobile number lol!! So we call Directory Enquiries and get put through to the pub where my family are and he comes to let us back in to get the phone. Then there was the "there is no St Johns Road" around here when we are standing in it and actually outside where we need to go. Doh! And then there was not being able to get out of the tube station, the "disappearing" Slug and Lettuce, the conversation about my hubby and me and handcuffs with the barman behind us doing a double take and the sheet of glass sinks in Pizza Express - all this before we got to see Jason! I can get lost in a paper bag!!
Jennifer Marie who I had not hear sing before was very good, she had a great voice. Then came Riley Smith. I had heard a bit of his stuff before and really liked it. Oh man what a voice, very rough and sexy indeed. He was great too, although I think a bit worse for wear on beer a bit later. He certainly looked it but he was good fun. Then came the hottie I had been eyeing up at the bar most of the night. How embarrassing going to see someone in concert and not realising he is the guy you are going goo goo over lol! In my defence he did look very different to his photos. Unshaven and wearing a green beanie hat, t-shirt and jeans he was drop dead gorgeous.
We sat with two great girls, Denise and Donna, who were brilliant fun. We had such a laugh. They had gone to the convention in May and were telling us about their time there. Donna works in special effects make up and it was great to hear someone who was not so much a fan of Jensen's but someone more interested in what happens surrounding the show. I hope we bump into them again in May because they were great.
We also bumped into a friend and her daughter off another SPN board we were on. It is always nice to put a face to a name and it was good to see them. Shame Dee was called away to work but she was seeing Jason again last night so that was OK.
All that was left was to come home, no bus as promised by First Capital Connect, stop some drunk woman trying to con free cigarettes and lord knows what else out of some young lad at the station and get over the hangover the following day but a good night had by all.
