After that it was crash and burn for all concerned and I'm hoping that hllangel didn't have too bad a time sleeping in the same room as our four finches.
The following AM we ate bagles, cream cheese, lox etc, and watched Army of Ghosts until Ivan showed up and we put on the DVDs for the whole Utopia/TSOD/LOTL arc which Ivan hadnt' seen and which put me, hubby and hllangel in the frustrating position of letting him see it without giving away any of the goodies or spoilers.
B/T/W-as I've mentioned, Ivan is a former marine, Dr. Who/General S.F. GEEK and all-around-cool-guy. He LOVED CJH, but as I suspected, had a bit of an issue with the big lip-lock, even though he was pretty sure it was coming. He gave great Kudos to the WWII recreation. He loves that kind of stuff. It's always interesting to get his perspective on DW/TW as non-slasher. (He's with hubby that the whole Doctor/Master thing somehow NOT sexual/romantic. Go figure.) He likes Gwen too, but disapproves of her screwing around on Rhys. I think in the Billie vs Martha thing he falls on the Martha side, but I'll have to verify. As far as my Ianto hate thing, up until now he's generally agreed with me about the sniveling and whining. This week he said he was happy when Ianto shot Owen because it showed that he had some balls. I don't think he likes Owen very much.
Then we put on the Niners game. The Niners Won! The fucking Forty-Niners actually won a game. In over time. Whooooo-hooooo. And the Raiders won too.
So once again, thanks hllangel for gracing us with your presence on such a stellar afternoon and for a fabulous weekend in general. Despite a few nerves on my part, the visit went off with a minimum of drama.
(And much love to hubby for putting up with both of us in full JB Squeeeeee-mode.)
Not much to say about being back at work except the usual-IT SUCKS!
