Even the complaining brother-in-law liked it. In fact we went for breakfast there the next day and I had an excellent huevos rancheros. I have also discovered that one of Greg's sisters is known to her sibs as HRH, the Anointed One, and the Chosen One, and her spoiled (but rather sweet) little boy is Prince Ari. Apparently people said in her yearbook that she was going into haughty-culture. [sniggers] I can so see all of that. I get on well with her, but it took her a couple of years to accept me.

I still suspect I'm not going to get much writing done tonight, and I had
Right, I'll see if I can squeeze some fic out.
