My feast day is almost here, cue the time of year I'm impossible to be around, and I have to be peeled off the ceiling on the best of days. I can't help but be excited though! Parades and green and confetti, wheeeeee!

I wish I could go to the parade and bring Ella and Mairead with me. It's safer if I watch it on the telly though. Otherwise I could end up comatose. And that's just...not fun.

[For Christmas, Patrick gets several of his favorite people presents. He spoils Mairead and Ella rotten.

For Clio, he gives her an antique necklace, a claddagh ring from his own culture, and a rare antique book.

For Agatha, he gives her a 17th century Cross Pendant.

To George he gives a trebuchet kit and a special mug for his tea. Additionally he included a toy for Bunny.

For Famine, he sends energy gummi bears, bacon hot sauce, and hot spicy powder.]

Thanksgiving was wonderful, thanks to my beautiful Clio who made an amazing meal, and our beautiful family. It was just so nice to be surrounded by love.

Not that you can ever make me take anything seriously for long though... )

That's one of the dog's toys but I decided it was a turkey or something. Go figure.

And before the office left for the holiday, this happened. )

It was considered team-building or something. Mostly it was just an excuse to have a beer at work and then act like an idiot for a few hours in the staff room. It was very nice! Back to work on Monday, but Christmas break is looming ever closer. We have a party before then too. I wonder if they'll get me to do the entire Thriller dance.

It could happen.

How on Earth do you possibly get Padraig to stop hurting himself?

He came over here and it was nice to see him, but then I asked him if he had hurt himself and his back was honestly a mess. Worse than I've ever seen it. It was more like back on the farm than holy rite or whatever.

I used to do bad things to myself too when I thought I had messed up. I never covered it up by saying it was holy though. I knew I was messing up more when I did it. I think he honestly believes he's doing the right thing and I don't know how to help him.

I've been in this wonderful and stable relationship for a year now and I didn't even know I could have something so amazing, let alone for a whole year. And more. I feel so ridiculously happy. Which is strange because I don't think I've been really happy before in my entire long life. But I have this wonderful partner, an amazing family, and I'm getting back into my music.

I don't know if I deserve this, but I've started to accept it doesn't matter. I have it anyway.

I fell asleep in the treehouse this afternoon on accident. Don't ask why I was up there because I'd rather not explain just why I like reading up there. Anyway, I woke up and there was a bird in there with me. I think it was trying to make a nest out of my hair.

It was really annoyed when I sat up and thwarted it's plans.

Thinking about going back to playing music live again. It was always such a release for me and now that things are good in my life, I don't need that release. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't still enjoy it.

I might have a venture out to see which pubs are interested. I used to have a good name with a few of them.

Should I go back to school mid-semester this year? I never thought I was all that clever. And I don't even know what I would study. Just seems like...if I have the time and I have the long-standing issue, I should maybe do something about it.

Something to think about anyway. I could study music!

In the meantime, I finished up with a big client today and we managed to get her resident status and into a great position. I love it when things go our way. I'm so happy I found exactly where I needed to be, though I know now that the office could work without me. I could work fewer hours and do other things.

I really want to go back to Puerto Rico or somewhere else beachy. Despite my pale skin, I love it so much.

I'm in the middle of a huge immigration case, however, so leaving now would be really irresponsible. My guardianship for Mairead is going to be full and legal next week, at least. That's a really wonderful thing.

She's been showing me The Princess Diaries. Anne Hathaway is great!

Mairead introduced me to this show about little ponies and friendship being magic and I don't know what to do now. Because I liked it but I'm fairly sure I'm not the designated market for a show like that.

Then she told me about bronies or something like that and I had to go read the Bible for a little while.

Mairead is being very patient, however! More patient than I am though no one is surprised by that. She made me go shopping with her and she found lots of things for me to wear so I looked more 'cool' and less 'boring and churchy'.

What about a waistcoat says boring and churchy?

Anyway I bought her a guitar and I'm teaching her and she's really good! I can't want to buy Ella one as well. We can have a band!

So hi, apparently I'm an idiot and my cat had to point it out again.

I know you might want to stay in the place you have now because it's beautiful and yours. But do you, by any chance, think you might want to move in with me and George into a new place? I sort of thought you might not want to move so I didn't ask and that's stupid because I would love to have you around all the time. I mean...if you wanted that!

I don't want to leave George on his own though. That's the only reason I'm suggesting a new place. I don't want my brother to be lonely.

How have I managed to never, up to this point, experience shopping with a teenage girl in charge? It's terrifying! We were in the shopping center for hours and apparently, there were still Very Important things she needed to try on. I'm old! I'm not built for following around someone with almost as much energy as me while she tosses articles of clothing at me which I am apparently supposed to carry for her.

By the end of it, we both required an entire pizza and she wouldn't even let me have a beer because she's really quite on the ball about that.

I say this all as if I wouldn't do it again in a heartbeat. But I really would.

This is bullshit. I get that here in America, people are paranoid about other countries for some weird reason. But why in the world would a pub be not allowed to fly an Irish flag?! It's not a threat! To make matters worse, the cops stopped them from flying it, and the owners of the pub are distraught.

I don't understand why, in America, showing pride in a country other than the US is somehow a crime. It's disgusting. I wish I could do something for them, but I can't. No one should be made to feel that their national pride is illegal. Americans put way too much importance on their flag and not enough on accepting anyone else's culture. It's disgusting.

I went to the hospital and everything was fine. I didn't have a concussion or anything. No broken cheekbones. They gave me some nose tape thing for my nose so I don't end up looking like Stephen Fry.

Mairead came by my office yesterday and she begged and begged for me to go to a movie with her so she didn't have to go alone. So I agreed. Little did I know that before me laid my doom.

She took me to see that Eclipse or Crescent Moon or Breaking Down or whatever the hell that Twilight movie is. I am personally horrified by Edward's eyebrows. Oh yeah, and everything else about him. And everyone. What in the world are those movies about?! From what I can tell, a young woman just decides to give up her family and die for a really old dude who cares more about himself than he does about her. Oh and this werewolf guy is in love with a baby who grows fast. I am going to have nightmares for years.

Meanwhile, Mairead can't stop talking about how it's romantic. Every time I spend time with her it reminds me that Ella will be a teenager some day and will she be in love with asshole vampires?! Because I can turn people into foxes!* AND I WILL!
