Today is the Gma's 93rd Birthday (and the Third Annual Celebration of Grandma's Last Birthday Ever).

There was pizza.
There was ice cream cake.

The Gma was talking about how, when you get to be her age, you appreciate having family around. Then, she turned to Karot and said, "And you're a part of this family too, whether you like it or not."

Then, after the birthday cake, when Karot was taking pictures, my mother said, "Well, Kelly, if you're really a part of this family, Elisa, you better show your father how to use the camera so he can take a picture of the two of you with your grandma."
Grandma said, "Yes, that's right, that's right."
I showed dad how to work it - "I just push the button, right?" "Yeah."
And so we were getting ourselves situated, and Grandma said to Karot, "That's right. You lose one grandma, you get another one."

And so we had our picture taken with my grandma. She smiled a lot, and she laughed, and then she made us take pictures of my father in a weird hat.

Mama never does anything without a purpose. In two days, it will have been a year and ten months since we began dating. It will be five months since we moved in together come mid-November.

Today, Karot sang "Happy Birthday, Dear Grandma," and maybe really got to mean it.

Okay. So.

[livejournal.com profile] karotsamused has hijacked the journal again. There are a few things to be said, and Rune figured it'd be cool to gank hers while I'm on Hayate.

First off, I started summer school ! Whee. One of my classmates? Reminds me of [livejournal.com profile] ranalore's Senor so hard it's not even funny. He's back from serving with the navy and trying to pass his LSATs so he's taking a logic course. Woo.

RUNE AND I JUST GOT DONE MAKING FUNNEL CAKES! Which are for the win! Fuck you, carnival folk!

And finally, there is nothing quite like being reprimanded by your girlfriend's mother for giving your girlfriend love bites. That led to a discussion of Rune's apparent immaculate conception.

Rune: It's not like you've never done anything like this!
Rune's Mom: *Looks at Rune*
Rune: Oh, that's right, I forgot I was immaculately conceived.
Rune's Mom: I thought you'd have figured that out by now.
Rune: ... *laugh!* Oh, like dad would ever stand for that.
Rune's Mom: *~smiles~*
Rune: ...
Rune: Ahh!
Rune: *changes subject to much less scarring lingerie*

As well as the argument along the lines of "You're not a teenager anymore!" at which point I popped up and cried "I -am- a teenager!"
The only good response to that one was an accusatory, if laughing, "I know!"

Rune is convinced this means her mom doesn't hate me.

Oh yeah. In-laws for the win.
aquabean: (Oh Snap!)
I call home. XD

Me and Mama: *have nice conversation about her new car*
Me: So can I talk to Papa?
Mama: *deadpan* Only if you beg.
Me: ...wha'?
Mama: Beg for it.
Me: ...Plleeeeaaase? Mama, come ooooon.
Mama: Nope, not enough.
Me: But Mama, I looooove you. Pleeeeeease, please can I talk to him?
Mama: ...I don't know.
Me: Awwww, you're mean!
Mama: No, I finally learned how to get stuff.
Me: *hmph*
Me: I looooooove you.
Mama: *smug* I know.
Me: NOW can I talk to him?
Mama: Wash your car.
Me: *facepalm*
aquabean: (Give thy thoughts...)
Voicemail*, received at 8:25am:

Hi Baby! It's Mama! I just called to say IloveyouIloveyouIloveyou! Muah! ... I miss you... Hope you have a good day. I'll talk to you later. Muah!

*To be saved for future reference in times of dire need.
aquabean: (Super Stich)
I'm going hiking with my dad in about 5 minutes, but this had to go up.

Rune: *wanders in mom and dad's room*
Mum: *is watching the morning news in bed* When did you get here?
Rune: Just now. Can you help me? *hands over a bottle of sunscreen*
Mum: Sit down then.
Mum: *proceeds to tell me about friends and family and applying sunscreen through out*
Sunscreen: *is not it's usual cold and clammy self*
Rune: Dude, you have really warm hands.
Mum: That's because I'm one hot Mama.

Dad-humour from mom? Is the best. Heh.

Firstly, [livejournal.com profile] snowyheart made me glorious Gojyo icons for [livejournal.com profile] urusai_already and I've finally got them up and I loooooove them. Love her too. *grin*

Secondly, I got Standies!** [livejournal.com profile] karose is a lovely, brilliant, wonderfully talented lady and my standies are so cute. Hee! I promise pictures as soon as I dig my camera out of the box it's hiding in down stairs. Or...*ponders* it maybe in that laundry basket...Huh. Well, there'll be pictures of the standies in their new home as soon as I figure how where the camera is period. Heh.

*glomps you both* You guys rock!

**I would have mentioned getting them last night when I actually had brief access to IM but I didn't know they'd arrived until right as I was leaving.

Me: *yelling from the living room* Okay, finally going now. Love you!
Mama: *yelling back from her bedroom* Drive safe! Call me when you get home.
Me: *amused* Mom, I live 20minutes away.
Dad: *from under the bed covers* Did you get your mail?
Me: *giving up on yelling and going to their room* There's mail?
Dad: Yeah, *finally sticks head out, barely* on the table somewhere.
Me: Oh. *goes to look, finds one envelope and a small package* Hey, there is!
Dad: Why are people sending you stuff?
Me: Well, one's a birthday care from Bear.
Dad: Oh. People sent you stuff on your birthday?
Me: *laughing* Yeah. You guys are giving me a hundred dollars.
Dad: We are? *looks to my mom, who's just watching in silent amusement* We are?
Mama: *amused exasperation* You knew this.
Me: You're giving me money for my plane ticket.
Mama: *long suffering* Well, she didn't want the vacuum clean--
Me: You already gave me the old one!
Dad: 'S true. How many vacuums can a three room house need?
Mama: You didn't even know we were giving her anything.
Dad: Yeah, but I remembered she had mail.
