An Impromptu Christmas Dinner

´Twas the day before, the day before, the day before, the day before Christmas (that would be Saturday December 21, 2013, for those who have difficulty with counting) that the picture below was taken.
Butch, Guyke, Tomais, I and Dej at the table in Tom's kitchen.
My men and I had started talking about when we were going to celebrate the holiday together before we each went off to spend some time with our first life families and/or friends, but had not decided on a date yet.

I was hailed by Dej when I logged into my SecondLife earlier than usual on Saturday. My brother was in an exceptionally jolly mood and invited me to come over to hear him play some music on the grand piano he has in his conservatory. I happily accepted the invitation.

After a while of we were joined by the topic of Dej's and my conversation, my lover Tomais.
At first Tom took a seat in the window, demurely listening as Dej and I continued playing duets on the piano, but then Dej  remembered that there was a third pose on the piano so he joined us there.
Tom got bolder as we kept on chatting away on Skype and changed to more daring outfits, cheered on by Dej and me.
Somewhere at this point we were joined by first Guyke and soon afterwards Butch and decided to go somewhere where we could all sit and talk comfortably. We first tried my kitchen table, but as I could not provide sustenance we moved on to Tom's kitchen where the table could provide us with a complete traditional Christmas dinner.
We sat there and talked together for hours and hours, all of us in high spirits and enjoying each others company to the fullest. 
When Butch had to leave us to set up his set at Q Lounge, the remaining four of us continued talking away and relaxing in Tom's sitting room, where we were served coffee, before joining Butch at his set.

Some hours later I noticed that Tom was getting a tired, he had been suffering from a bad cold for a few days and had had problems sleeping properly due to congestion. I decided to send Tom to bed and tucked him in properly.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that this had been a magical and wonderful day, one of the top five marvelous days in my entire SecondLife existence.

Oh, I almost forgot, we actually also had sort of a Christmas miracle. Dej and Guyke, who in the past have had some difficulty getting along, didn't even bicker at each other once. The two have instead since then joined forces to instruct Tom and me on how to go about things, sticking their noses into matters that are none of their concerns. The only reason I accept and forgive them for this is that they are family and that is what families do - as I know well having done so on more than one occasion when it comes to both their lives.

Bock in SecondLife and I, it's editor in chief, 
wishes all of you and your families in first and SecondLife 
an equally wonderful and magical Christmas holiday 
and we hope to see you all safely back with us soon!

  4. That was probably the best day I've had in SL since...a very long time ago. Thank you Bock, Tom, Guyke and Butch for that wonderful, wonderful day. Bless you all :)

    p.s. If I don't get to be a bridesmaid by Valentine's Day I'm ready to sue. (there are actually lawyers in Manhattan who specialize in this - who knew?)

    That 3/4 sleeve, lime green, underwire frock with crotch support isn't getting any younger hanging in my closet.....

    But no pressure. Hugs :)

    1. LOL my sweet brother, thanks for being there with us and making it a wonderful day!

      If - and let me stress that by repeating it - if I should ever get married again, I could not possibly agree to having you overshadowing my bridegroom or me by being more beautiful than either of us in your lime green frock. You would have to be there of course, but I would insist you wear a tuxedo (mesh of course) and perhaps even a beautiful veil...

      But why always be a bridesmaid and never a bride yourself, brother Dej? I am certain that I or Tom could fix you up with one of his ever so cute friends... What do you think, then you could wear your lime green frock to your own wedding? (Both of us know that you in a white frock on your wedding day would be quite dishonest, don't we agree?)
