The SCONY mountain weekend is one week away and I’m so excited! I miss my friends so much. I unexpectedly got to go to Shadow Lane about a month ago and was thrilled to hang out with a few SCONY friends who came out west to attend. It’s not often I see folks out in this direction. I had a lot of fun there and it was a new experience, but I can’t wait to see the full SCONY family back at the weekend.
And they are just that, a family. A sometimes odd one, but that’s what family is, right? 😉 The closeness and support given to each other within the group has always amazed me and I’m happy to be a part of it. This has been even more evident in recent weeks with the passing of a dear friend who we will all be thinking about at this coming weekend.
I’ve said before that SCONY is like my Cheers, where everybody knows my name. Even if some of them still pronounce it wrong. *coughJoeycough* 😉 Okay maybe not everybody knows me but I am unusually social amongst these people. Well, social for me. I talk and everything. Sing, even! It’s about as far out of my shell as I get. But how can you not be comfortable around such awesome people? It takes a special type of friend to consistently humor me by buying mass amounts of Peeps.
I can sit at any table in the dining room at dinner and comfortably have a conversation with whomever is sitting there. It is guaranteed that at least one conversation will occur that will have me laughing to tears. I have many wonderful play partners to choose from to be spanked by and who know I hate asking so can pick up on my signals. I’m subtle like a hammer to the head. 😀 When I’m roasting Peeps over the fire and people are sighing and shaking their heads at me, I know they love me anyway. Lol.
The theme for this weekend is Harry Potter. I seem to be the odd man out in my dislike, maybe indifference, of the fantasy genre. It’s never been something I’ve been interested in. My life is enough of a fantasy world already. I love to read and watch a lot of movies, but Harry Potter has never been on the list. I know near nothing about it but many people are really into it so it’ll be fun to observe. I’ve added my participation with the Mountain Weekend 30 day countdown I send out daily. The theme has been “30 Ways To Disarm A Top” and includes various spells I’ll share when it’s completed.
The April weekend was fun and I enjoyed staying with friends to see NYC for a few extra days afterward, even getting to attend a Yankees game. But with all the personal crap going on so soon before, my head wasn’t in the place it usually is and I was very emotional and feeling insecure. This will be my seventh weekend and I hope it is indeed Lucky Number Seven. I want to have a blast. I want to be silly and talk and laugh and hug and play and then do it all some more. I want to sing karaoke, watch DOOL with Regan uninterrupted, and roast Peeps. Did I mention the Peeps? I’m so excited. 7 days! WEEKEND!
