Santa Hates Me

Yesterday, my dad emailed the following:

"Being the head of the family I make this proclamation: No (commercialized) Christmas presents. Instead let's get creative. I'm making a meal requirement, each of you will be responsible for at least one evening)meal, this should be something new and/or favorite."

No Christmas tree overflowing with presents? No stockings? No Christmas shopping? No wrapping paper? No fighting with the scotch tape? This is terrible! I love holiday shopping.... I like opening gifts... Most of all I like giving gifts (really!). I am going to blame my brother for this terrible idea.

Considering that I don't cook, this could be disasterous. I feel my only option is to recreate the the winning recipe. My family is so abnormal!

aww that is no fun at all! Maybe you can go all out with your best buds?! My family is leaning towards the $25/person gift. I mean honestly, WHAT can you purchase for $25 these days?!

I say break the rules and buy presents. I can't cook either!

Just came across your blog. Unbelievable. You admit to fucking different guys, using drugs, and being drunk most of the time. I'm sure your parents are proud of raising a worthless peice of trash. Have you ever heard of STD's?

wow

send "me" my way.
friggin' coward.

msg for "me" - what's abnormal about that? She's just honest with it unlike most. Wake the fuck up.

anyway, chili isn't really a holiday meal, my friend.
I suggest you come up with a new one ;)

Oh man, Cooking ?! Eeekk!

oh, and from reading you blog, I get the feeling "me" is someone you might now, from that whole "outing saga"

Dustin, you're from California? Well I'm east coast dumbass, so this wouldn't even be a contest. And no, I don't know this skank, as far as I know, anyway.

Jo: I joke about having my evening meal catered...

DCVita: I doubt that $25 will buy the ingredients for my Tatanka Organic chili.

Me: Your opinion is your own. I have no need to apologize for what I do, who I've done or how I chose to spend my time.

However, I love controversy and appreciate a firery response to my posts every now and then. Perhaps you'll stick around and read the post that I intend to write today. I only hope I can find time, what with all the sleeping around, drinking and drugs - I just might not post it until tomorrow.

Silvs: The "other woman" in the outing scenerio was actually quite pleasant, I doubt "me" is her.

Dustin: Thanks - you are fabulous.

I'm actually a fan of just buying gifts for children and/or drawing names--so that you only buy for one person in your family. I would fit in perfectly with your family's new plan. Maybe you could talk them into at least doing stocking stuffers?

Seeing that my mom was born on Christmas...and my dad cooks all of our meals...we are safe from this craziness.

I'm sure someone will be breakdown and head to the mall...*here's hoping!*
