Schadenfreude + Picnic

Charles and I went to Erica's annual cemetery picnic at Mt. Hope Cemetery yesterday afternoon. She has one every year for her birthday. It was the first time I'd been able to go since I was dating Paul.

Upon arrival, I saw a girl dressed in... a little bit of black leather, looking a lot like Xena Princess Warrior, wondered if I was supposed to dress up for this (I wore a brown skirt with my How To Be Smart tshirt) and saw two groups of people (one on the first flat part of the hill, and one on the top of the hill). I know we usually convene on the top of the hill. Both could potentially be our group, but...

The lower group was actually Low Budget Pictures, the group I used to do movies with. I recognized Travis's HUGE fro hair and guitar. They were shooting a movie involving a guy in a loin cloth, a princess warrior, and some cannibal fairies. I'm not really friends with Chris, the director, anymore, not after he fucked me over so many, many times. But I talked to his wife Lauren, and a girl from RHPS, Ames. And chatted with Travis a bit when I saw that Jyinn was talking to him, too (Jyinn was part of our group). He was totally hitting on her.

To top it off, the air show was going on while they were filming. I enjoyed that greatly because the sounds of the jets ruined a lot of their shots. And so did we. Hehehe. I'm not vengeful at all ;)

The party was lovely. We collected acorns, ate awesome food, drank awesome wine, caught up with each other... Troy, Jyinn and I played with a big bug we found. Mud put his girlfriend on speaker-phone so she could be there (her water broke, she's about to have a baby any second, so she couldn't be there), and lots of pictures and videos were taken :)

For Erica's birthday, she bought herself a house! A gorgeous, Victorian house in a nice neighbourhood. I'm jealous.

That's what we all said, but she wasn't in the hospital or in labor yet, even though her water broke days ago. Weird.

i think that's beyond weird into the realm of impossible. once your water breaks, you have about 24 hours to get the baby out before they start umping you with antibiotics and do a c section.
water can leak though, and then stop.

I've heard it happen a few times before.
My friend's brother was born totally dry. It was actually really gross. His mom's water leaked out everything for about 3 months and she gave a dry birth.

yeah i have a friend who had a dry birth, but that was from leaking, breaking. also my understanding is that it's really, really dangerous. i imagine it would be uncomfortable too....

Victorian house?!!! I'M jealous too. I could only be more jealous if it was a masterfully restored Georgian Townhouse. I love townhouses.

Those are mostly turned into apartments here. I lived in one in '01. They're gorgeous!
