Best Christmas gift ever [Dec. 25th, 2005|09:15 am]
[Current Mood |cheerfuldelighted]

Something about Christmas turns us back into little kids. We got to bed late, and yet before 8am we were both lying awake, waiting for the other to wake up. Being respectful of each other even though we were both awake already, assuming the other wouldn't be so silly as to wake up extra early because it was Christmas.

But we eventually figured out that we were both being way too nice. And then the Christmas frenzy began. Much media. Much, much media. An absurd amount of media. Ferrett also gave me a fire bowl, one of those outside fireplaces. I've wanted one for a few years now, but hadn't mentioned it for a while. I love it when he remembers things like that about me. Makes me feel loved.

But you know what really makes me feel loved? At the end of the present opening, he put on a CD. And I sat here listening to a catchy tune that was the story of our life together, as sung by a star of the filking circuit, Tom Smith. Written in the style of Christine Lavin, this delightful song about Gini and The Ferrett covered all the highlights of our life together. Yes, he commissioned a song about our life. I was floored, and delighted, and amazed. Wowed. Completely wowed.

Thank you, sweetie. You know how to make a girl feel loved. And anyone who wants to here all about us can go to Ferrett's journal for a link to the song.

Definitely a taker for the "best gift ever" award. What a wonderful thing for him to do! Merry Christmas!

So sweet of him. You guys are very lucky to have each other. *swoon*

And you really do know it's love when it's been years and years, and he still is in that deep with you.

Thank you, I will now promptly melt into a diabetic lump of jellied mush. *blurbble ^_^*

Very much so! You did a great job of capturing us, and of writing in the Christine Lavin style. Thank you so much!

I should add that it was his song, but the influence was there. Whee!

That is just... fabulous. I would write more except I'm too jealous. Imagine being with someone who thinks about what you might really love.

Everytime I read your posts you make me cry! 3 weeks ago I would have asked you if you have a brother. That was a great song!

Yup, he's a keeper.

And OMG Tom Smith, a guy whose name I actually recognize now that I belong to fandom.

You are SO lucky.
