GiST Day 86: Stood on a Castle Roof Edition

1. This afternoon, my sister and I went and toured the X-Men Castle and the surrounding gardens. We were the only ones in the tour group, and so our tour guide did a bunch of extra stuff for us: she gave us a guided tour of part of the garden (they usually don't do that), she took us to the back yard part that's now not usually open to the public, and she even snuck us out this secret door on the top floor that gets you onto part of the castle roof! It's where the castle's owner used to hide his money, and it was super-cool.

2. We had such a lovely evening out with good friends. Ice cream at one city landmark, and then tea in the hipster region of the city. Janny's getting the whole city experience this time.

3. Warm weather! Hurrah.

4. Sudden naps in the afternoon: also hurrah.

5. It's been nice having my sister in town. I think she had a nice birthday on Tuesday too.

Now that she is getting old, don't you think it is time she stopped calling herself "Janny"? It sounds as goofy as my 60 year old brother calling himself "Rossy". Bleah. Grow up.

Hey she may be older but she is still just as cute. I reserve the right to still call her Janny!

It's only in these sorts of forums where any of us call her Janny. Just like we get calling your youngest "Lynnie" around here. And sometimes your second youngest lets me call her "Kylee" in exchange for her calling me "Mary." There is no using the name "Bronni," however.

And don't tell Janice that she's getting old.

I don't insist on people calling me Janny but there are a rare few on this Earth who can get away with it.

I stand corrected. 50 lashes please.
