My father, the sociopathic felon

My dad has had a collection of stuff he's wanted to give me for several months, so a couple of weeks ago we set up a meeting at a midpoint between DC & Concord, NH. We met for brunch on Sunday at the Plaza Diner outside NYC in NJ.
Dad appears to be in good health, and he's looking for work again, and he had useful stuff for me in his car. But enough about that. He got arrested in December, and he's just getting around to mentioning it to me now. Sheesh.
I'd blither more about this guy, but why bother? His way of dealing with people isn't the way other people do. Needless to say, the city of Concord has his collection of firearms right now, although it looks like the prosecution didn't get around to doing anything with the case within the statute of limitations, so he'll be off probation real soon now. This means he'll be at the wedding, unless he gets arrested again. *shrugs*

But the day wasn't all weird. Karen & I saw Star Wars on Sunday. Good.

I hate to say this, but your dysfunctional family makes me feel better about my dysfunctional family.

Ah well...I'm still jealous of the whole 'finding your lifemate' thing ;-)

I've found her. Yes, I have. And now she is in Scotland. Life is funny that way.

Ok, now I'm confused.

She and her dad are at the funeral of a family friend, and I am answering email & LJ in the split moments I have running back & forth between my house, work, her dad's, & other sundry places. Busy week.

yeah but she's, like, coming back and stuff.

On Sunday, according to the flight information.

If I'm very very lucky, she won't bring me a haggis.

No haggis. Couldn't find any with a hecksher. ;)

Re: haggis

:) Heh.

You probably wouldn't be able to get a haggis through US customs anyway. They're kind of funny about agricultural products, and I think entrails count as agricultural. (well, agri, anyway - not too sure about cultural)

Re: haggis
It is possible to wrap it in other things besides a sheep stomach. That's not very traditional, tho..."Who put the haggis in pantyhose???" 8^)

Re: haggis
They don't allow any meat either, not just agricultural products. It's really just a running joke. We've had kosher haggis once and it was, um, icky.
