Mwakoโ€™s โ€™21 Visit ๐Ÿฆ Day Three

๐Ÿ–๏ธ At The Beach ๐Ÿ–๏ธ

I think today was my most favorite day of Mwako’s visit! It was definitely our “Littlest” day. We went to the beach and played lots of Littlespace games later that day back at my house.

We were up very early and off to Target to get some beach toys since I didn’t have any. Mwako got me a bucket, some scoops and a saxophone playing parasaurolophus!

I wore my Wen swimsuit, which I love to pieces still, and my new Toy Story Land hat that I got during the last Orlando trip. ๐Ÿ˜

Mwako took lots of photos of some –some candid, some I posed for. I think these might be the only photos of me at a beach ever.

There was a lot of seaweed, and I didn’t want to go into the water because it required wading past it. So Mwako basically dragged me screaming into the sea, I wish I was joking. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Then I clung on to him like a barnacle, and didn’t want to go back into the beach because of wading into the seaweed again. There was SO MUCH of it.

While we played in the water, a vehicle came and swept a lot of the seaweed on the beach away (or rather, “tilled” it into the sand). So at that point we went back to play on the nice clean beach.

My large blue bucket was quite unmanageable. I wasn’t able to make a big castle with it, I guess the sand was the problem. Being full of seaweed, it easily fell apart. But I was able to make a few small structures! A tiny city of sorts.

My parasaurolophus simply stood by playing an ominous tune on his sax.

Eventually the village was done! It even had bushes for decoration. A peaceful neighborhood, for the time being.

Mwako doesn’t really like his picture taken, but he approved of me taking this one from far away. He is looking for seashells for me to decorate my houses with.

All of these beautiful beach photos were taken by Mwako.

Of course, I had to “enhance” them with stickers… ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Here’s a couple more he took of me:

At this point my sax-playing parasaurolophus decided it was time to give in to his dinosaur instincts and destroy the town.

Just like that the poor entire town is gone. For some reason, after this I felt very satisfied, and just sat staring out at the sea in contemplation.

…before sentencing my parasaurolophus to be drowned when the tide came in as penance for the wanton destruction:

(In the end he got lucky, we had to leave before the tide came in. He lives to destroy again!)

๐Ÿฃ๐ŸŒˆ Littlespace Time ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฃ

After the beach, we went to a McDonald’s Drive-Thru and it was the perfect hour: they had Sausage Egg McMuffins AND fresh fries! I had one of the most delicious breakfasts in months. Then we got back to my place, showered, and feeling quite refreshed, began our Little time!

At Mwako’s suggestion, we watched The Owl House, a show I am new to. I liked it a lot! Here is Mwako’s play area with the big crayons:

Mwako colored very, very fast. One could hardly keep up with him!

I just colored one drawing, of Cookie Monster with… err… a neighbor? Cousin?

I basically finished, but want to add some more details later:

I also started on a new squirrel page:

Multiple Owl House episodes later, our wrists hurt and we needed a snack, so we headed downstairs.

๐Ÿฟ Intermission ๐Ÿฟ

For a snack, I had coffee and a chocolate rice krispie treat! Mwako had juice and Lunchables.

๐Ÿงฉ Time For Games ๐Ÿงฉ

Next was board games! We played Bluey’s Shadowlands.

The physical execution of this fame is atrocious, lol. I can’t recommend buying it. It’s a cool concept, however it is very poorly done. Materials wise, I mean. Mostly it’s the palm tree mechanism that is a problem. But the game looks nice.

Still –we had fun with it. Mwako won!

๐ŸŒˆ Waffle Block Fun ๐ŸŒˆ

I love waffle blocks so much! They are my favorite type of block by far. We had so much fun with them. I made a little house! The house had windows, a path, a fence, a lawn chair, a satellite dish and two bushes.

Mwako made two things. The first was an Evil Lair Of Liony Doom (my name). I took many photos because I thought it was extremely cool.

He also made a cat carrier, with a handle and all:

Of course, we had to have the cats try it…

Elliot had regrets.

Rosie’s opinion was similar:

At this point Christopher was getting home so we put the toys away, and once he arrived, we went to our anticipated ramen dinner.

๐Ÿœ Hi-Pot Dinner ๐Ÿœ

Hi-Pot is one of our favorite restaurants and we were happy to introduce Mwako to it. We hadn’t had it in a long time and it was as good as ever.

Since I don’t often get to go out these days, I changed all over again just to go out to dinner:

As I was setting the alarm when we left, I noticed the sun on the Ring camera and it looked pretty so I took a capture:

I had… OMG… I had too many eggs. Christopher gave me his egg in exchange for my meat. I also ordered a side order of egg thinking it would be one egg but it was two. It was a massive amount of delicious eggs.

After we got home I almost went straight to bed, just kinda crashed, I was so happy and so full. Mwako leaves tomorrow… I will miss him lots. And I’ll back to work, work work! ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Mwako’s ’21 Visit ๐Ÿฆ Day One

My dear friend Mwako arrived today! He’s visiting for a few days. The last time was a couple of years ago. Normally, unless something happens, I see Mwako once a year, either at a convention or when he visits here or sometimes both at once. But with Covid, it’s been a while.

It’s always a lot of fun when Mwako comes but for this visit in particular, I’ve got a lot of Little activities planned for us to do together. I’m really looking forward to that.

I was very busy all morning –chores and commissions– but here is the outfit I picked for today:

After I finished my chores, Mwako and I went grocery shopping. I hadn’t been to Walmart in a while. I saw a really cool dinosaur in the toy area which I may have to get my hands on later… ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘ˆ

When Christopher got home, the three of us played with our trains and watched Thomas The Tank Engine. That was a lot of fun.

At some point I left them and went to make dinner. I made teriyaki chicken rice bowls with avocado on the side. I tried to make Mwako’s area as Little-feeling as possible.

Tomorrow we will start off on our adventures. I’m sure I’ll have tons of photos to post, so look forward to that!

IKEA Outing ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™โœจ

Hi hi, everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Yesterday was pretty fun. After breakfast, some house chores and yard work, Christopher and I picked up our friend and the three of us went to IKEA. I brought Anise with me and put together a new outfit!

We had swedish meatballs and such for lunch and then walked around. I found some wild snail art on a fridge!

My main goal for this outing was to measure some bunk beds, see them in person, and decide which one I’m going to put in my studio. In the end, I settled for this one:

The upper area will be mostly for my stuffed animals, except in cases where I really need to have someone there. But that will not be its primary purpose. Anyway, it was out of stock, which I expected. It should be coming back later this month.

Totally unrelated but one of the Bluey showrunners or something (verified account) liked one of my tweets with a Bluey plush and a freaking ODU ONESIE on it and I had a moment of both glee and utter panic:

I was happy and also had an urge to block him out of sheer panic. It was like โ€œHe noticed me!!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€ โ€œNOOO PLEASE DON’T NOTICE MY CRINGEโ€ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Anyhow, that’s it for today. I did also gets plenty more commission progress done. Hopefully my goals of posting all overdue work this week can be reached! Goodnight, everyone.

My First Iso Storytime! ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿ“š

Today I did something I’d been toying with for some time, but felt too shy to do. Same reason actually why I didn’t do BFC… Now, I wish that I had attended that as well. See, today I attended Isolation Storytime for the first time!

To tell you the truth I fully expected to keep my webcam and mic off for the whole thing, lurk a while, feel super uncomfortable and leave. This is because generally, being around other Littles that I don’t know intimately tends to cause a cognitive dissonance in me, a strong awareness that I’m a grown ass adult doing kid things, and I go into a bad headspace.

I’ve heard this happens to other Littles as well. In your mind, during Littlespace, you feel like a little kid. But depending on how your mind works, seeing other Littles being Little in their very adult bodies can be a reminder of reality and yank you right out. This, I assume, has a lot to do with how much you are exposed to other Littles, and is probably why I have Little friends with whom this does not happen at all.

Anyway, to my surprise, this ended up not being the case. For reasons I cannot explain, I turned my camera on right at the start. I ended up not feeling so shy and having so much fun. The hostess, Tibby/Mavis, was wonderful, I was blown away by how talented she was in her singing and playing! And everyone who offered their time and effort was so lovely too. I really enjoyed coloring while listening to stories. It left me feeling quite happy. I think I might even offer to read a story down the road…

It was also my first time in a Zoom group meeting. Still getting used to the mechanics of that.

During this time I tried out my new crayon sharpener that I got from Drake as a birthday present. Itโ€™s amazing! It really gets crayons back to their old sharpness:

By this I mean proper crayon shape. I just found it so cool!

Anyhow, my first IsoStorytime attendance was very sudden, I had actually decided not to attend and changed my mind ten minutes before start time… next Friday I may use my laptop at floor level instead and prep myself a play area well in advance. Maybe even order a Happy Meal if Christopher lets me. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŸ

Birthday Fun! ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‚

Hi hi, everyone!! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Guess what today is. It’s my birthday! ๐Ÿฅณ Of course you know, because I’m the kind of person who doesn’t shut up about these things. ๐Ÿ˜ The first thing I woke up to was a birthday greeting and Amazon gift card from my mom in law. I think I had spent it literally ten minutes later. I’m terrible.

But anyway, got even more stuff I’m looking forward to arriving now. Today was extremely overindulgent. ๐Ÿ˜… But I have been so sad, and so stressed, especially the last week. I am a lot happier.

๐ŸŽ Opening Presents ๐ŸŽ

The first present I opened arrived some weeks ago. I didn’t know who it was from until today –thank you very much to my friend Kiba! It’s Felix Salten’s “Forest World”:

Felix Salten is a writer best known for the books “Bambi” and “Bambi’s Children”, but he also wrote “Fifteen Rabbits”, “Perri: The Youth Of A Squirrel” and many other wonderful books, which are often heartbreaking and full of death, but also hopeful and with beautiful descriptions of the wonders of life and of nature.

As I continued opening my presents, it turned out (based on the included gift notes) that I got some from Bluey and her gang! ๐Ÿคฏ What is this sorcery?

They sent me the Shadowlands board game, and some stickers! Thank you Bluey, Coco and Snickers! I think my friend Mwako was involved in making it happen, though… ๐Ÿฆ

The next package was from a dear commissioner, whom I love to draw. He has a very cute mouse fursona, a weakness of mine! His name in the community is Fieval. He sent me some Bluey figures! Thank you very much, Matt! ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿ’•

It was finally time to open my biggest present. I was very excited, so I saved it for last, and… HOLY CRAP!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•โœจโœจโœจโœจโœจโœจ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ *sobs*

I lost my freaking mind, it’s so cute!! Again, I suspect a tiny lion had something to do with it… although it still seemed to come from either Bluey or Bingo. Who IS the keepy-uppy expert? Was that ever established? I can’t recall. ๐ŸŽˆ

You know… I wish I could have told 7 year old me that I would still be getting toys from multiple people for my 38th birthday –from people who also, like me, like toys and kiddy things as adults. That I would have a tank full of snails and four cats, and a library, and a husband who’s kind of a big kid like me in some ways too and makes me feel safe and loved… and drawing every day… what a life. I hope nothing happens to take it all away, but even if it did I would be so grateful for all I had until today.

๐ŸŒˆ Littlespace Shopping ๐ŸŒˆ

Earlier in the day, my friend Snow sent me a present too! Some birthday monies to spend however I wanted today. So I decided to go out. And I finally made an outfit around my new Bluey shirt!

I really love it a whole lot! I wore my boots because it was sprinkling when I left but in the end I didn’t need them. It was sunny all throughout. ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒปโœจ

Oh yeah… I know this is a petty side note, but I get asked “where did you get X thing” a LOT when I post “Little” stuff. Like multiple times a day on Twitter, often by complete strangers. It gets very old for meโ€ฆ I feel like I am used as a catalog mostly (usually) by people who almost never talk to me or don’t even follow me, even though 90% of the stuff I post can be found if you put 10-15 minutes into a Google search. If we are CLOSE friends then feel free to ask me via DM. ๐Ÿ˜Š I don’t mind telling friends. I just don’t like feeling used because someone is lazy.

I have a mask but itโ€™s not in this photo. Iโ€™m wearing a mask indoors again when shipping and such, to be extra safe, but I am vaccinated! โœŒ๐ŸŒˆโœจ๐Ÿ’‰

I had a lot of fun on my walk, but was definitely glad that I brought a bottle of water (something I’m bad about) because the heat was quite unbearable. Here is my Little birthday treasure hoard from that excursion:

One of my favorites was this squirrel which will likely be displayed for the entirety of fall every year going forward! And speaking of squirrels and fallโ€ฆ another fun fall squirrel thing I got was a garden flag to put at the front of the house. Have I mentioned Iโ€™m excited for fall? ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฐ

As you can see in the first photo I also got fall, Christmas and Birthday stickers, a new pair of scissors, and some Pride tape. And these amazing scented gel crayons! ๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐ŸŒˆโœจ

Small softcover books make great, cheap scrapbooking suppliesโ€ฆ although a part of myself dies when I cut up a brand new book, even if I bought it for this specific purposeโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ญโœ‚๏ธ

One of the nicest thing I got was another Highlights Hidden Pictures puzzle book. These are a massive Little button for me.

I love the old-timey art and the level of difficulty is precise to my usual Little age headspace. Here’s some sample pages… ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ I love it so much!

Thank you again, Snow, for all the nice play things I was able to get! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

๐Ÿ“ฆ Mail Day ๐Ÿ“ฆ

As if so many wonderful things weren’t enough, when I got home there was stuff in the mail for me. One was the Bella Sara card packs I ordered a while ago:

I’ll use them for scrapbooking, but opening card packs is also a big Littlespace activity for me, so I’m very excited about them.

The next really blew my mind!! I specifically asked my mom for the Vegeta figure for my birthday because it was so cheap… like $12. I knew she wanted to get me something, I didn’t want her to overspend on me! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Especially when she’s spent THOUSANDS recently on immigration… WHY… ๐Ÿ˜ข

Anyway… she kept messaging during my outing wanting to know if I was home. It was because of this:

So… yeah… one of the most wanted most expensive things on my list. A gorgeous artbook of my first otome experience, Code: Realize ~Guardian Of Rebirth~.

It even has art I’ve never seen before, so I was quite overcome with emotion by this beautiful present from my loving mom.

๐Ÿ’• Date Night ๐Ÿ’•

After ALL of that, Christopher and I had our date night! I had a really fancy snack and perhaps a bit too much wine. Bangers is protecting my yummy hoard!

Like last time, we played Age of Empires together-but-separately (side by side):

Later we watched a movie. I was too full from snacks to have dinner. ๐Ÿ˜…

Christopher petted me for hours while we watched. I was half dozing off between the wine and all the happy feels and just feeling sooooo good, it was a wonderful evening and I felt so loved and safe.

Now it’s time for bed… thank you, everyone, for all the presents and good wishes. You made me so happy. I guess I’ll have more things to share throughout the weekend as they arrive –but tomorrow I really gotta get some work done! โœŠ๐Ÿ’ฆ Goodnight, everyone…

Yard Work ๐Ÿฆ—

Even though I’m not doing okay mentally, I managed to be pretty helpful in the yard without as much whining as I feared I might have done. I ended up in a ton of pain but I helped raking leaves and with Christopher we put down two pallets of sod together. I also did a lot of pressure cleaning.

More than anything I am relieved that considering how I am currently feeling I managed to be cheerful most of the time because I really don’t want to bring my family down with my nonsense, again.

๐Ÿ› Working On The Yard ๐Ÿ›

My mom in law found a cute caterpillar while raking leaves so she let me take him to a safe place. He was such a cutie:

Here’s some video of the little bugger, too:

I really didn’t want to be the first one to tap out (and I only stopped maybe 15 minutes before everyone else, after working since before 8:00am) but I was actually crying by that point because of the terribly pain in my old wrist injury. I think it’ll be okay though.

These photos are from when I came back inside. Almost every area of uncovered skin looked like my arm. ๐Ÿ˜…

Oh yeah –the fridge behind me is the new fridge. It was delivered today. It’s a pretty nice fridge.

Here are some photos of our freshly sodded and pressure cleaned yard and house. The first pallet had some kinda bad squares, but Christopher said it will all grow in very nicely.

After going back in, I showered and sat down to relax for a bit. I had a package to open.

๐ŸŽˆ Birthday Present From Drake ๐ŸŽˆ

My friend Drake sent me a really fancy birthday present! It’s a very cute (but very good, it’s not a toy) crayon sharpener. I hope to use it on the next Little playdate.

Mojito was admiring it too!

Thank you Drakey for such a very lovely present. ๐Ÿ’•โœจ

๐Ÿฐ Scrapbooking Time ๐Ÿฐ

After that I worked a bit on my scrapbook and watched Crayon Shin-Chan. Mignon wanted to watch so I prepared his little chair for him to sit on.

And that was that for the day. Eventually I began working on chores. Grandma made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. The day didn’t end on a bad note. Perhaps I’ll cheer up tomorrow, I’m going to try!

I Am (Somewhat) Healed ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Yesterday I came to visit my mom and spend the night! We also went out for an early celebration of my birthday when Christopher picked me up. I had a wonderful time and my mom spoiled me so much that I really left feeling much better than when I got there! ๐Ÿ˜Š

As soon as I got there Mom gave me a snack and I began to munch and work on the next warm-up for Nazz. ๐Ÿ‘€ I had Grogu for company on this trip.

Grogu investigates the snack…

My mom made me a huge childhood treat for dinner –cheesy polenta! It’s the best.

As ever, Sweeney alternated between a desire to play and a desire to kill me. He draws blood on every visit, but he really wants to play (until he doesn’t) and he really wants to be pet (until he doesn’t.) And it’s hard to know which is which. Ever since I moved away he’s always a bit pissy to see me, I think because he misses me. But he ends up curled up next to me by the end.

At one point as I was chasing him he put his front paws in my flip-flops, one in each. It was the cutest thing and I can’t believe he stayed like that long enough for a photo!

I ate waaay too much but my first day with Mom was lovely.

The next day, my mom gave me my birthday present early!! Since I wonโ€™t see her for my actual birthday. I knew from the shape what it was. ๐Ÿ˜

ITS MY MAN

Iโ€™m turning 38. Thanks mom for humoring my immature ass. This was my first husbando ever when I was like 13 lol.

Afterwards, my mom made cheddar biscuits and mate cocido to have while we watched TV:

It was really cozy.

In the evening we went to Banchero! It purported to make true Argentinean pizza. Now, you wonโ€™t know this unless you lived and experienced it in Argentina, but Argentinean pizza is just, completely different, with the meltiest cheese, and amazing toppings. It’s the one thing I truly miss from my home country.

For twenty years, we hadnโ€™t been able to find a place that truly replicated our original experience. So my expectations were very high!

Christopher ordered a meat loverโ€™s. My mom and I ordered half morrรณn and half primavera which has EGG! And a piece of fainรก for nostalgiaโ€™s sake, and an entire bottle of wine for my mom and I. It was a very expensive meal because these pizzas cost like, $25 each. But they are 100% worth that price. Trust me. At least ours was.

I asked Christopher to hold Grogu for a photo but he was difficult about itโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Eventually I got Grogu to stand, although in her drunkenness, my mom was joining Christopher in his sabotaging efforts by trying to tip poor Grogu over with the pie knife:

Then she wanted to give him an olive as a peace offering:

The pizza really was as I remembered my last from 20 years ago. Met our expectations for sure! It was a big treat from my mom for my birthdayโ€ฆ definitely a costly mealโ€ฆ Authentic Argentinian pizza on the beach isnโ€™t cheap. But it was so worth it. Iโ€™m really grateful to my mom!

Side note, I love my palm sized Grogu so much, but sometimes he talks if his tummy is accidentally pressed and then someone inevitably goes โ€œwhat the hell was thatโ€ and I can either say โ€œmeโ€ or โ€œmy Grogu doll that I carry around everywhereโ€. Itโ€™s a lose-lose either way. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Today’s Odds and Ends ๐ŸŒˆ

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Iโ€™m still working hard on final LAN party prep. Today I went to the craft store and to do some last minute grocery shopping. I wore a very Little-feeling outfit:

I also got a good walk in, so that was nice. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hereโ€™s some video and such of Tomoyo being her good old destructive little self:

She seemed satisfied when she was done.

Some postcards I ordered for scrapbooking arrived yesterday!

The packaging was so delightful that I honestly feel tempted to get back into Postcrossing. I was big into it a long time ago!

The store I bought this from, as you can see, is geared towards Postcrossers. So yeah. Might do that again.

They even included a tiny envelope with bonus stamps! ๐Ÿ“ฎ

I canโ€™t get enough of collecting more scrapbooking stuffโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ’ง So, uuuh, hereโ€™s some more I guessโ€ฆ

I also made a new necklace today with some stuff I got at the craft store. Iโ€™m really happy with how it turned out!

Not much else to say because Iโ€™m so busyโ€ฆ Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll have a lot to post about next week, though!

An Outing And A Little Bit Of Fun ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒž

Yesterday afternoon, before our date night, Christopher drove me around for a little bit so I could take care of some errands. I wore my new dino shirt for the first time. I love it!

My errands were all fun ones. I went to JoAnn where I was both delighted and a bit eye-rolly at all the Pride stuff. Michaels, Target, JoAnn, have all embraced this. Unsurprisingly, Hobby Lobby has not. You can find some very obviously pride rainbow ribbon, but I think they just consider that “rainbow” and that’s it. However, particularly Target and JoAnn, carry items with the newer, updated Pride flag, with the Trans and Ace flags, and I know, I KNOW it’s all capitalist pandering, but at the end of the day it still makes me happy.

So now I have another pair of Pan socks, a more random rainbow hearts pair of socks, and that’s actually all I bought in that regard though I enjoyed seeing everything else they carried.

I bought their last two bags of Alpha beads because I’m determined to make necklaces for all my toys and stuffies that do not have them before this week is over. The paw and candy beads I’ll probably use for stuff for myself… the bells are for my stuffies too.

After JoAnn we went to Petsmart together, where I bought several toys for the cats (well, really, it’s for Tomoyo, whom I’m trying to shower with love and attention.) Then we went to Kimchi Mart and I got a whole bunch of yummy goodies.

In the evening we had a leisurely dinner, and then watched The Blair Witch Project, which I had never seen. It was pretty damn good. It was a wonderful night together, just the two of us. Watching horror movies with Christopher is one of my most favorite things.

Here is what I made for myself with my new beads today (Friday), having finally had a chance for some “me” time. A bracelet and a new necklace:

I also finally made necklaces for all my toys as planned. No one is unnamed. It’s a small indulgent activity but it really fills me with happiness.

Later in the day, my Amazon package with the new drawer-sorting things arrived. I forget what you call them, but my socks and underwear are nicely sorted now:

I can’t really say why, but this sort of thing is very relaxing for me, it’s kinda like… defragmenting my brain. Remember when defragging your hard drive was a thing you had to do? ๐Ÿ˜ It feels like that. I’m also in the process of sorting all my necklaces and bracelets. โœจ

That’s it for this post… hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hi-Pot For Date Night ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ’•

It’s date night! We went out to dinner tonight. This was my outfit for the day:

We went to Hi-Pot, though we just had ramen as we usually do. I give Christopher my meat and he gives me his egg. It’s a good trade. I had milk tea with boba, too, and brought Cerise along:

Afterwards we walked around a little, went to Gamestop. Christopher got Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt Of The NecroDancer for Switch and I watched him play that for a while while working on art. It was a pretty chill date night but we enjoyed ourselves.
