Yesterday was the second anniversary of Knize and I being together, and by being together, I mean we hooked up in Atlanta and decided this thing might be worth hanging on to (it was a good decision). He was doing 11th Hour Radio and the PoP!-Cast last night, so we had fun on Saturday going to the movies to see Brave and going to the local winery to get crunk with tiny, tiny plastic pimp cups (which, in retrospect, I should have brought some bread and pretended to take communion at each stop, just to fuck with people. I’m evil like that).
Turns out, a wine tasting will get you ever-so-slightly tipsy unless you do the “cultured” thing and spit the wine out. Yaaaay free drunkening.
I want to do a Boushh costume one day and join the 501st. However, I don’t have the time or money for costuming. Or, as Kinze wrote about last week, cosplay drama. So, a Boushh doll is a good substitute. And a totally badass anniversary present.
Plus, glowing carbonite Han rocks. “You have the carbon sickness… Your eyesight will return in time…”
Now that I think about it, I never even tried to take the helmet off… I wonder what she looks like under there.
Knize commissioned this from Charlie Rogers a.k.a. @kidspider, who is doing some character commissions. This is a much happier version of that scene. They’re a bit more chipper than I remember from the movie.
I guess the second anniversary is the Star Wars anniversary, huh? Somehow I missed the memo.
BUT I MADE FOOD!
Spinach and fresh mozzarella wrapped in steak wrapped in a woven bacon blanket. It didn’t turn out 100% as I expected, but I didn’t do a terrible job. That’s my present to Knize: food that is kind of fancy, not totally terrible, and mostly safe to eat.
See? It’s not too terribly bad. Although the bacon on the underside, cooking in its own grease for an hour, was pretty slimy and gross. I’m sure it was cooked (at least, I really, really hope it was since I just ate the leftovers), but it wasn’t the most appetizing bacon ever. And this is bacon we’re talking about. I WILL EAT BACON UNDER ALL BUT THE NASTIEST OF CIRCUMSTANCES.
All in all, the anniversary celebration wasn’t some huge deal, but that’s because we have awesome times ALL THE TIME. And that’s what really matters.
