Last night Light Bright and I got together for the first time in forever, and I bought her dinner for her birthday. She had no new Sock Puppet League stories to share, unfortunately (for us – probably good news for her). We waited and waited for her bus but it didn’t arrive, so she figured she missed it and was going to go do something else until the next one a half hour later, but just as we crossed the street, the bus came barreling down the road, so she ran after it. Luckily the driver saw her and stopped.
Then I drove downtown to the Nitty Gritty but found no sign of Jilly Moose or her birthday party, because they were all at the Nitty Gritty on Gammon Road. It’s so confusing when there are two locations for a restaurant! Of course Travalon showed up at the downtown one too, since he’d gotten his erroneous information from me, so we headed to the right Nitty Gritty and found a sizeable crowd there to celebrate with Jilly Moose. OK Cap was there, and none of us could come to an agreement about whether the Rosary Ladies should get together tomorrow or Sunday. I think we finally decided on Sunday… After she left, Luxuli arrived, and we went to Jilly Moose’s home for a bonfire with her housemates, Richard Bonomo, and the Dairyman’s Daughter. People were asking me what I thought about Scottish independence, and I was all for it, but they weren’t. Turns out most Scots weren’t either, since the No vote won by a healthy majority. So Scotland is still part of the United Kingdom, and Jilly Moose is in her last twenteen-something year. Next year she wants to go somewhere exciting to celebrate, so people were suggesting California or New York City. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments.
