Happy Sigh

I'm hard pressed to think of how last night could have been better. The show was incredible. I am a total groupie for Ego Likeness. I love every one of their songs, and I squeed out loud when they played "Faded Flowers". Voltaire commented on how "being a gothic dad is something else". He played a lullaby he wrote to comfort his son when he's fearful of the dark ("good night little demon slayer") and everyone just caught their breath, it was so sweet.

I got to hug and hang on all my beautiful girlfriends in their holiday finery. I had a pleasant and almost flirty moment with someone who used to hate me. Someone insisted on buying me a drink. A number of people from my high school years, whom I rarely see, were visibly having a blast. On our way out the door, I was embraced and given an unexpected and absolutely perfect Christmas present.

This is how holidays are supposed to be.

Also, my mother in law just called to discuss Christmas plans. Man. I actually utterly adore my mother in law. I know there's some kind of cosmic law that forbids that, but I don't care.

OK, I'm signing off now, before I sicken you all :)

Sorry I lost you somewhere in the middle of our conversation. I didn't mean to ignore you, sweetie! I was going to give a quick hug and come right back, honest!

It's cool, sweetie. I'm sorry I walked away. I'm a little... distractable at clubs.

I remember your MIL from my troubled youth. Seems she would be easy to adore.

She is. She's always been the Mom that E's friends could count on to be cool, and bail them out of bad situations. That's the kind of parent who is *useful* to troubled youth.

She used to go to shows with him sometimes, and took him to the Leather Rack (when it was above the DC Eagle) to buy piercing jewelry. Apparently, the leather fags were much amused :)
