Vacay is One of Many Nice Things

I'm on vacation on the beach in foggy Oregon, watching illegal fireworks, and celebrating one of Dear Old Dad's birthdays with a zero at the end. I'm not just talking about my ne'er do well cousins, either. It's been awesome fun, with an incredibly cute nephew to admire, and all sorts of other inducements. Such as listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on the trip up, seeing Kick-Ass for 75¢, and the 4th o'July parade down the one-block long main street, complete with a giant cheese float and dancing bunches of grapes overseen by the great god Dionysus. I don't remember Dionysus presiding at any of the small town festivals of my youth...

I haven't forgotten y'all, even though my commenting has fallen off ridiculously, and even the reading has been hit and miss. I signed up for schmoop_bingo , like everybody else, and with luck and perseverance, I may have something for that soon. If you'd like to suggest some rare character pairings, it might get the mental gears moving...

sleepy times
drunken confession of love
lazy Sunday
friend in need
amusement park
illness – shared
candlelight sex
stuffed animal
hot cocoa
birthday – celebrant is sick
watching the game
unexpected date
butterfly kisses
greeting card
“I love you” – first
office/workplace party
kidfic – first injury
secret admirer
coming home from long trip
anniversary – perfect gift

I also got a nifty nomination for Best Gen and Best Quickie Fic in Round 21 of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards for my ficlet about Giles and the Classics, The Lioness on the Cheese Grater. Since the story is almost half quotes from Lysistrata, I'm not real confident that it's a fine example of my writing. Though maybe it is, since I often refer to my betters in my work. Heh. Anyway, my most sincere thanks to my kindly nominator, and here's the pretty:

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th, even if it's just another Sunday where you live.
