Good morning, everyone. Hope your days are a little quieter today without the sounds of small people flinging themselves off of high surfaces.
Apparently that was mostly confined to my house. Oh well. In classes
, Computer Science
got to program the Danger Shop for their final, and Kitty brought her daughter Chrissie
with her to class. Practical Phys Ed
had Fred telling the students he used to be part of a group called the Thunderbolts--is that a superhero group or rock band? I need to look it up--and then run through something that, according to the notes, "totally wasn't a bank robbery, really."
You can't tell, but I'm looking pretty dubious right now. And Lying
wrapped up the year by assuring the students and all of their progeny that lying is really, really bad. Good. And Lito's son Diego left him a drawing
he did. That's really sweet. I have one Yeehaw Cowboy left me--
Now listen here, Leroy
, that kid can have whatever name he wants to have--
*five minutes of hold music as Steve rants at a squirrel, sorry kids*
ANYWAY. In the dorms
, Dante was getting taking to the cleaners by his daughter Janie in poker
, and then Janie got to go for a walk while Anders
ranted a bit about stuff in Kathy's universe just in time to get a message
that her world is now no longer reachable.
...that's a thing that can happen? Ada brought Janie back and then Ada and Dante talked about their relationship
in the future a bit.
, Hannibal made breakfast
for anyone who would be stopping by the house, and Jono
teased him for thinking quiche was kid food. In my day, there wasn't kid food. There was just food, and you ate it.
No, I don't want to chase people off my lawn. Why would you think that? I was down at the rocky section of the beach teaching the boys
that came to visit Tony about climbing and falling correctly, and then it was time to say goodbye to the kids
. Anders promised Carys
he'd hug Kathy the next time he saw her, Lexi promised Kitty and Clint she'd be back next year and Clint said they'd get to work making her...Barton
. Did not need to hear that. Chrissie
thanked them for the weekend and Clint passed his regards on to her father...that sounds like a...difficult family dynamic...but then they hug, so I guess it turned out all right. Lila and Cooper were sent back to Clint and their non-Kitty mother
with a reminder that this wasn't Clint's fault. Zaq
told Anakin and Obi-Wan that he wanted to stay and they reminded him that he was almost old enough to come to school here, and Jarik
was more than happy to leave her teenaged annoying parents behind here.
And finally it was Eliot's birthday at Caritas
, complete with their broods of kids because if you're going to have a birthday party, you should include everyone. Spike and Jono
were singing together in English and Spanish, and Kenzi
was serving alcohol and milkshakes behind the bar. Kenzi met Tamsin's daughter Dagney
, which was a good thing because in Dagney's world Kenzi's been raising her since Tamsin's dead.
Well, that's awful. Ada--a new one, not the normal Ada--tried to flirt sangria out of Kenzi
, and the lounge was all decorated
for the birthday party. Eliot's Riley
didn't get him a present because she didn't know it was his birthday but Spike offered to sing happy birthday...which explained the singing earlier. Spike's also happy to see Ada
, who he knows from his version of the future.
Does everyone else get raging headaches this weekend trying to figure all of this out? Parker and Emmy have presents for Eliot
, Riley's disturbed
that Eliot's so old, Ada-not-the-student brought
cake and got confused by Pinkie Pie
--it happens to all of us--and Pinkie didn't bring her party cannon but did
bring a pastry set and a giant life-sized Eliot made from balloons
Stark, if you're listening, I don't want one for my birthday. At all. Ever.
Riley's also confused by the balloon
chose to focus on the pastry set, and Emmy's just excited about the pony
. Hardison gave Eliot a key in a ring box
--that seems kind of mean--and Parker was excited that Hardison got the present delivered while Eliot was distracted
made a brief stop in but she had four kids at the house, and trust me, I know how crazy that was.
And that's everything. Go to bed early tonight. You deserve it.
