christmas stuff! and cards! (not mine) and other things!  
1. Merry Christmas everyone! ♥ I hope you're all having an amazing day and that your presents were plentiful. ;)

2. As for me, I'm currently at my grandparents' on my dad's side, which means that I have sporadical internet access. On the good side, apparently my little cousins grew tired of the Christmas singing. Which is good. (On the I-don't-know-what-to-make-of-it, the eldest is apparently putting into practice some perpetual sulking that would make Jon Snow proud, which I'm pretty sure isn't allowed when you're *ten* and your name is not Jon Snow.)

3. Also, Christmas cards! Thanks so very much for the Christmas cards to: itsjustc (thank you! <3), vella_amor_dm (we should totes be more on LJ *nods* also that was some seriously lovely card, thanks!), twisting_vine_x (aw that card was adorable, thanks!), elliotsmelliot (that owl on the card is so beautiful <3 thank you!), haldoor (wow, that was a gorgeous card - how do you even make them? I loved all the glitter xD ♥) and jaydblu (that was a very shiny card, thanks! ;) )!

Also, random question: do Canadian posts send all letters during Christmas time with the 'SANTA HOHOHO PERE NOEL' thing printed on the top? I hadn't noticed it previously but it's kind of awesome.

Also, I'm working on mine but with everything going down this month I didn't manage to finish them yet, so they'll probably be.. New Year's. Well. You'll probably get them after New Year's, but they *are* coming. /o\

4. Have some entertainment thanks to my Buffy obsessed uncle. Yesterday, this conversation happened.

Him: 'you know, there's this whole debate about who should Buffy end up with in the community. There are people who are for Bangel, that'd be Buffy/Angel, and then there are the ones for Spuffy, which would be Spike/Buffy...'

Me: 'Okay, yeah, sure.' What I was really thinking: holy crap IS MY UNCLE USING PROPER SHIPNAMES WHAT IS THIS, IS THIS REAL LIFE?'

Him: 'then of course it's obvious that Angel and Spike had history together - you know, between centuries-old vampires...'


A short while later, after I say something like 'seriously is this still a thing' when my cousin starts drooling over a Dragon-Ball videogame:

Him: 'well, do you know who played Junior in the live action movie?'

Me: 'James Marsters? Wait a moment, did you actually watch that thing?'

Him: 'I might be a Spuffy, but I don't watch every piece of crap James Marsters stars in.'

I don't know how I kept the laughing fit from happening. Seriously, if he ever starts watching something that I watch as well it's going to be fucking hilarious. (Meaning: if he ever comes up to me being like 'I ship destiel Dean/Cas' I'll most probably never recover.) Also he bought me Boardwalk Empire dvds. Did I ever say that it's awesome to have someone in the family who actually gets what you're talking about when you talk tv shows? (Oh, and I have the first three seasons of Breaking Bad too, but with the way things are I'll probably watch them after my finals - sigh.)

5. And after leaving you with this hilarious exchange to spice up your Christmas day, I'll go a) commenting on my oh-so-very-perfect-and-marvelous-Yuletide-gift (it's Kavalier and Clay and it's Sam/Tracy and it's FLAWLESS. I'D READ IT IF I WERE YOU). Aaand I hope you're all having a marvelous day again <3 (the next time I post I'll have hopefully finished with the cards, at least..)
feeling: okayokay

Buon Natale, bb! Your card is surely on your side of the Atlantic by now -- I hope it's waiting for you when you get back home.

Also? Your uncle is AWESOME. (And you deserve an Oscar for not dissolving into a laughing fit while he was Spuffying all over the place.) XD

Grazie! ;) hopefully I'll find it when I get home. :D

haha I know? I just couldn't. I'm obviously a good actress. Or maybe it's that I never was into Buffy fannishly, but still, it was hard to keep a straight face....

Buon Natale!!!!

And OMG, I LOVE your Buffy-obsessed, Spuffy-shipping uncle... can he be my uncle too?? XD

My relatives aren't so cool.

Buon Natale a te! ;)

I LOVE HIM TOO. I can lend him to you for next year if he agrees... ;)

So glad you liked the card and that it arrived in time! *hugs* Don't worry if yours is late; I'll be happy to have it any time!

I love the conversations with your uncle; he is seriously fantastic! ;-)

Merry Christmas, love! ♥

Thank you! <33 and haha I think that being late is becoming my trademark but I swear that it's coming...

My uncle is awesome. If only everyone else in the family was that fannish.. ;) and Merry Christmas to you! ♥

LOL! I couldn't possibly talk about shipper names in real life (with an uncle!) and keep a straight face. Very well done if you managed it! Your family sounds awesome. Hope you had a great Christmas!

I have the first three seasons of Breaking Bad too, but with the way things are I'll probably watch them after my finals - sigh.

When are your finals? Just wondering if you're going to watch in time to join us for the final episodes this coming July.

I'm half-sure I managed just because while I watched enough Buffy to know who's who and what generally happened I was never fannish about it, but no seriously it was hilarious. :D

My finals are January/February, so I'm definitely going to join you all for the last season :D I mean, between March and June I WILL have managed to watch everything, right? ;)

Lol, well I watched S1-S4 of Breaking Bad in 2 weeks flat (not sure how I fit in work and sleep somehow but I managed it). So yeah, I'm confident you can get caught up in time. It's probably best to postpone it because then you won't have to wait as long for the final episodes. God the waiting is painful!

Good luck with your finals, btw!

Haha I remember watching all of Deadwood in like two weeks and I had to pause because I needed to order S3, so I think it's veeery much doable. ;) I was planning to start around March or so because it'll be when I have less work on my plate and when I get to July (when I hopefully will be done, but if not then I'll be killing myself over my last thesis) then I'll have just the last season to watch. XD

And thank you! :)

Mmmh felici vacanze? Felice Natale? ;) Happiness = felice, anyway. ;) And merry Christmas to you! :DDDDD ♥

hahaha I'm nowhere into Buffy enough to express any ship preference but good to know you and my uncle are on the same boat ;) XD
