Well, Meggie was here for a night and most of the day today, but is gone again. Sheâ€™ll be back through town on the 10th, but for now, Iâ€™m Meggie-less again. She comes complete with her very own Brittish man, whose name is Tim. Last night we made Steak-ums for Tim and Meggie, then we all sat around watching election coverage and MXC. They were jet-lagged from hell, so we all stayed up until Midnight to get them on US sleep schedules. Meggie came bearing gifts too! She gave me a set of uber-nice earrings, a pair of too-shot jeans, a slinky sexy see-though nightie, and the most beautiful corset-shirt Iâ€™ve ever seen. Iâ€™ll take pictures sometime, but itâ€™s stunning. Itâ€™s white, strapless, and embroidered with silver thread and beads. I love it! I felt bad though because she had all these presents for me and I didnâ€™t get her a damn thing. 🙁 Anyway, we went shopping today. She needed stuff for Jaredâ€™s wedding and Tim needed Jeans and shoes. I am now reminded why I hate shopping with her. Itâ€™s because she can pick up anything on the rack and have it fit or nearly fit her, whereas I have to go looking for tall or long pants. She also looks cute in anything she puts on, whereas I get to look quite stupid and frumpy next to her. The entire trip I was comparing my lanky-and-dorky-ness to her hot-and-sexy-ness and wishing I could look even half as un-dorky as her. It was just like old times, her looking great in everything she put on, and me looking like an idiot standing next to her. Iâ€™m sure Tim was thinking to himself “Jeez, Iâ€™ve got the hot one in the family…” I dunno though, maybe Tim is too Brittish to think stuff like that. It was surprising, but I didnâ€™t have the urge to repeat everything he said in the english accent. I thought I would, like the Croc hunter. You just want to say “Crikey!” every time he does. So, I spent the day feeling like a dork while Tim and Megan tried on everything and looked good in everything. Tim is a nice guy though, even if he makes me look like a dork too. Heâ€™s taller and more muscular than I expected. Heâ€™s also very smart and well-educated. Same sense of humor as most of my friends have (which is a big fat â€˜duhâ€™ since heâ€™s dating Meggie). Heâ€™s got wonderful goals and ambitions, and heâ€™s stuck on her. Itâ€™s nice to see her with someone really nice, and nice for her. She can sometimes be a stubborn wench, but he loves her for it (he says). He does have a distressing tendency to talk during TV or movies about other things, but thatâ€™s easily solved by slapping the shit out of him. 🙂 Overall, I think I really like Tim, and I feel at ease with him. Heâ€™s an easy guy to like.
