kshandra: pixie with purple wings aloft before a full moon (Good)
Home from [personal profile] gridlore's mother's home, where we had dinner with his now-sister C, her wife L, and [tumblr.com profile] senshi76. I brought grape jelly meatballs for an appetizer, which everyone LOVED, and "Grape jelly?!" became an instant family meme.

C's toast at the beginning of the meal was perfect: "Here's to being the only family in the country tonight that doesn't have to worry about politics coming up over dinner!" As it happened, the only politics we talked about were the politics of Westeros (C&L are both waiting for the series to end before reading the books; Doug and I have read all of the books, but have only seen about half of the first season; my MIL is current on both).

Senshi and I had a fabulous conversation about various aspects of gender on the ride home (in addition to having a trans* parent, they are becoming more public about identifying as non-binary). Doug got the comment of the night, though, by noting "I'm not cisgender, I'm cislunar. I present as male and I'm about 240,000 miles out of it."

I have one more bag of meatballs to add to the sauce and toss back in the slow-cooker to take to work tomorrow. (Yes, I have to go back to work tomorrow. As I noted earlier in the month, babies don't stop pooping.) And we've got some tentative plans for Small Business Saturday. For now, though, I think it's time to queue up "Alice's Restaurant" (because I haven't been to Church yet this year!) and relax for the rest of the evening.
