Holidays




We had a really nice Christmas with my husband's family - and it reminded me that, Yay! One of the things I love about being an adult is that I get to choose whose house I go to on holidays, and who can come to mine.

One more excellent thing about not being with my ex-b.f. is that I didn't have to go to his evangelical relatives' house and hear all about how God didn't spare the World Trade Center, on purpose.

Other things I love about being an adult during the holidays:

I can eat the damn pie when I like.

I don't have to wait for my mother to put on makeup before we open presents.

I don't have to hear that I'm "ungrateful" from my own evangelical relatives because I don't want to sleep on the floor in their house where there is a big, stinky dog...

I could go on and on, you know?

I think these pics of our nephew are even cuter because of his chocolate Joker smile, don't you?
He even offered to leave his new (awesome!!) remote-controlled tarantula for Mr. Riot Kitty to play with.

I wasn't that thoughtful when I was 7...I don't think I'm that nice now, actually ;)

Are you liberated enough yet to go back and kick all those "saintly" relatives in the balls? That would make a fun New Year's celebration:)

I can't stand it when they talk about natural disasters and terrorism like it's God's way of punishing all the sinners. Seriously...what Bible area they reading??

Eat your damn pie and the hell with everyone else! Whether you choose to be naughty or nice, have a happy new year!!

we all celebrate the holidays our own ways, eh? our tradition, sadly enough, is watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And judging by the outcomes of the last two family holidays, I may celebrate the future holidays with a good dose of cyanide...though to be fair , the most recent had more to do with snow than people. the people were great.
