I managed to get in some shopping today. I've gotten Auntie and Uncle all taken care of, and I got some... fun things for Nami. Because even if we won't be here on the holidays, this will still be our first Christmas with what is more or less our own place, and I want it to be special. I also found I pair of shoes for myself I couldn't pass up on: Chocolate brown, suede clogs, lined in wool and trimmed with faux fur. Marked down to $14.99. I had to get them. I just have such... issues with shoes and buying, and I'm sure I'll find some use for them.
Also, I was looking around for new icons, since free accounts now get to have six icons. I found a lot of great stuff, mostly RayK and Fraser/RayK. Came across some RayV icons too, and I though that someone who's exceedingly in denial about which Ray is better Kohza might like them.
Kohza seems to have gone into one of his... focused spells again. I think he's been forgetting that his hair doesn't shampoo itself, so I might have to go over to his dorm one night to make sure he takes a break from his...interest in Dean Ener to take care of himself.
I really am so glad classes are almost done. We're going to have to make sure we properly celebrate, love.
Kohza, Uncle and Auntie send their love. They said they'll stop in to see you next time, when you're more settled in. And they left some things for you with Nami and I. Come and get them when you have time.
Sandy, I'm so sorry you weren't able to meet Uncle and Auntie. They couldn't stay long (Auntie had to be home for work in the morning.), but I'll make sure you're here for the next time. Also... well, I've told them all about you, of course, and they included a gift for you in the things they brought. So, baby, you can come by and pick it up when you're free.
I received a phone call today. From Uncle. He wants to come for a visit. I've been expecting this. Honestly, I'm amazed he's waited this long, but it doesn't mean I'm exactly looking forward to it.
Uncle is a kind man, and I love him dearly, but he has never stopped seeing me as a child. Even after all this time, he still can't get himself to see that when I say Nami is my girlfriend, I don't mean it in the friend-who-is-a-girl way. And though I appreciate the sentiment, Nami just wasn’t permitted to stay the night often enough for his cookies and party games to be well received (and such a large part of me just wanted to leave the door unlocked just once, so he might understand). And try as he did, he couldn’t give me at 16 the childhood I didn’t have at six.
Thankfully, Auntie made sure her schedule was clear so she could come with him. So, while I'm sure he'll still bake something for us, I think she'll be able to dissuade him from bringing anything too unfortunate.
Cry Cry Cry - Lord I Have Made You A Place In My Heart
Nami and I were both finally home at the same time last night. It was lovely. We watched one of those horribly cheesy movies that practically encourages you to not watch it, and she caught my up on some of the goings on in this place. I think I really need to meet some of these boys. Maybe we could head over to Tony's some time this week, because it seems it's been ages since I've seen him, and I still don't know his roommates.
I really sometimes wish my class schedule didn't clash with Nami's such. I mean, I still get to see her much more than last year, when she was here and I was still back in high school, and I've already met some wonderful people with which to do things in my non-Nami time (Robin, and Sandy baby of course) but somedays... I just miss her.
It helps, though, when I come back from a late night and find her asleep in our bed and know that all I have to do for her to reach out and hold me is climb under the covers, or when I'm the one who gets home first, and I know she'll be the first thing I see when I wake up.
