O Brother

Thanks for the comments, everyone. They really do help.

As some of you may (or probably not) know, I'm not usually a big fan of my brother. I'll go into why that is some other time. I got a random email from him this morning. The subject? Flaming rainbow of doom. It was because he wanted me to see this. So I replied and told him about the thing with Mom right now. It went like this:

You might have to be the good child for a while. I told Mom a couple days ago that I'm definitely moving in with (insert Master's real name) when I get to Edmonton and it's not just about the money. Needless to say, she's not real thrilled. I get to be a disappointment to lots of people! Yea!!

A while later I got a reply from him. It actually made me smile. My brother did something right! This is what he wrote:

What, are we competing for how many relatives we can simultaneously disappoint? :-) Don't make me pull out the big guns!

I'm kind of afraid to know what his big guns are, so I'm not going to ask! But it was nice to feel a little comraderie with my big brother in this.

I missed out on a lot not having a sibling to take some of the pressure off.

You do. Run with it.

(And now you know we are drooling for the dealio with you and the bro...)

hmmm...nice one there. I do believe though that no matter how nuts or screwed our siblings are, I bet my life on them when trouble comes.

The fact he doesn't let anyone into his apartment leads me to believe he indeed has big guns!

Big guns... big piles of unopened mail... big piles of highly technical computer programming books... whatever.

It's nice to have some form of family support, I'm sure. :)
