I'm at my mom's house right now for the holiday season and it's going pretty well. I hate flying and the flight here was no disappointment- there was Star Trek level turbulence the entire way. The only good part was breaking through the clouds in Cleveland and seeing everything again, covered in snow but still recognizable. I missed my home state.
Christmas Eve went nicely with seeing everyone again. I missed my friends so much and got a bit too drunk at our annual Christmas Eve Bar reunion, giving me a hangover yesterday, but it didn't last all day. Seeing the family again was lovely as well and I got to play a bunch of new board and card games with them. Then, after Mom got tired and I drove her home, I went back over to Ben's and finished my character for a Warhammer 40k Dark Heresy game that Sean has decided to run for the next week.
I missed gaming with them SOoooo much. It was fantastic. Supposedly they want to attempt to play over Vent when we all go back to our respective home states, which I hope works out. I'm worried that me being 3 hours behind everyone will be too inconvenient, but we'll see.
In other news, they've pretty much convinced me to start up playing World of Warcraft again. I think I may buy it and see if I really want to stick with it again or not. Mostly I would just be playing for them though, and once again, if the time difference didn't work out, I'd probably drop it again.
I'm here for the next week and have plans to continue gaming with my friends, as well as a couple meetings with Fraternity Brothers, besides watching Doctor Who with my Mom. She's in the middle of the second season and I hope to make it at least to the end of the third by the time I leave. She is a fan of Captain Jack as much as I am and I want to watch her reaction to the end of Last of the Time Lords in person. We just watched Doctor Who At The Proms together, and though she hasn't seen Season 5 yet, it was wonderful to watch it with her. I'm planning on watching the Christmas Episode either tonight or tomorrow with my friends, but just haven't gotten to it yet.
So yes, this is my happy feel-good positive things post! Yay for being home and being with my friends again. They're like a warm blanket I can wrap myself up in.
