so, a veritable gaggle of teenage girls giggled and skittered out of a limo that pulled up outside the DQ. i gathered from the talk of the driver that it was the sixteenth birthday of one of them. much to my surprise and delight, i found myself not judging them for their ditziness, or for the probable overindulgent parents behind this, but rather merely hoping that the girl was having a good birthday, and thinking to myself how generous of them it was when they bought the driver a dilly bar. i think i'm getting better.
i have given my sister the names Shavo the Young, and Esvath of Pirates. This now adds to her list of names, including the original Katherine Ann Cragoe, her intended Katherine Uptain Awesome, and my personal nickname for her, Buttons. I did this, like so many other things, completely arbitrarily. the names have no meaning whatsoever, other than the fact that katie is young, and a pirate.
off i go. (flies away) Current Mood: full of blizzard
