March 26, 2011 – evening
Kimyee and Elli suggest we have a slumber party. Dad agrees and is going to take Allison to Philly to go shopping while we try not to get into too much trouble. They come over and we settle in my room.
Discussion of man-cave with input from Adrian.
I give them the rings.
Makeup kit from Katherine – Chanel, Dior, Yves St. Laurant
We go have fun in the pool – last one in the pool is a rotton egg, so I superspeed my way through getting into my bathing suit and getting to the pool. I didn’t gate!
Elli and Kimyee get into a water fight and then we go make ice cream floats using homemade ice cream and Edith’s special root beer. (she sold the recipe to Hops)
We go upstairs and do makeovers. I explain makeup colouration (cool vs. warm) and all the weird rules involved. Ridiculous makeovers this time, providing Icarus with plenty of blackmail material in the form of photographs. Then we move on to real makeovers, transforming all of us into heartbreaking beauties.
We discuss boys and the future, exchanging stories of first kisses, dating history, and dishing the deep dark secrets. Synchronized ice dancing for same-gender couple?
Elli’s mom set up a sting with her middle-school boyfriend which prevented a very unpleasant bathroom incident. He got possessive and Elli slapped him so he decided to teach her a lesson by dragging her into the bathroom.
And now we get to the sex discussion. “You wouldn’t buy a car without driving it, so why would you want to make a lifetime commitment to someone without being intimate?” Dad.
Popcorn bar. We watch 27 Dresses, Enchanted, and Hairspray – the James Marsden film fest. Make pizza and take one to Edith. More talking about boys and deep, dark secrets. Metahuman/mutant registration discussion. It’s a good thing Mom was the “first” metahuman, with her big white wings and angelic appearance.
Discussion about names.
Maria tried to do the smoky eyes look and appeared more like a raccoon.
Discuss the merits of thongs. I give Elli a CD purple lingerie set.
We change into our PJs. Ellie has an oversized geek t-shirt (“easy access!”). I have a silk chemise and shorts. Kimyee is wearing boy shorts and a midrift baring camisole.
We go swimming. Elli pulls off a fantastic gymnastics dive that her coach would kill her for.
Discussion about Cynthia involves tales of the lack of childhood friends with Alessandra and Elli’s transient friends. While Elli understands and feels sorry for Cynthia, she still considers her an evil rapist and is never going to be her friend. I can understand that.
Superman vs. Batman conversation ending with a hug from Elli at our geekness.
Then we go to bed. Icarus is tired, and I carry him to the room.
The night passess…
