So, Brother and Sister BOTH graduated yesterday (Brother from high school and Sister from college). Several relatives came down to celebrate. I sat through a grand total of about 6 hours of ceremonies, plus an hour and a half reception, and then we all (except Brother, who had Stupid Obligations) went out to the camp for the weekend. I had to leave this afternoon and head to work, though, so I'm missing the big party.
Both of them graduated with honors, and two of Brother's best friends had to make speeches (one was Valedictorian, one Senior President). The three of them are all in a row, alphabetically, and Sister, looking at the program, remarked "Wow, there are some smart 'S's this year..." And then she and I made statistics jokes at each other for a while.
I really ought to be working on a challenge fic right now, but I'm very, very tired and the words won't come out. I'm actually writing two stories for the How Tim Lost His Virginity challenge, one for my claim (Tim/Bernard) which is half done, and a sooper sekrit bonus fic, of which I have finished six parts of what will probably be 10-12. I am loving the bonus fic more than is probably healthy, so please believe me when I say that I have NEVER had so much fun writing anything. Ever. A teaser to its content can be found here.
On that note, I will now perpetuate a meme I saw in someone else's journal a few days ago (I forget who, now, or I'd credit). The following are snippits from both of my current WIPs, provided without context for your possibly enjoyment and probable confusion.
He had a brief, giddy moment of hope that Tim would loose the towel, but when he checked, the knot looked like it had been tied by a boyscout. A gay porn boyscout.
"Batman is not taking advantage of me," Tim assured him.
"So you are sleeping with-"
"No," Tim interrupted. "Hand me the T1 TORX driver."
ETA: Make that 8 of 15 parts. And counting. I should really, really be working on the other one.
