I'm quite happy to report that it went great. Nice to see that the "asshole gene" that seems to be what my uncle's DNA is templated from wasn't passed down to his kids. We had a great time, catching up and talking a lot about the family, which was interesting, as I discovered my mom's been lying about me (telling others she's talked to me when she hasn't...which makes me wonder what she's told them I've said/done). I also got to embarrass her to her co-workers, which, as the eldest of the grand-kids, is my right, dammit.
In the end, damn nice to see her, and when she is back this way in a couple months (I think), she'll come up to the house and see the rest of the family here. Man, it's good to have an experience with a member of my family that doesn't make me want to kill. Now, I'm-a take my buzz and goof off a little with City of Heroes.
