Whenever I start thinking, 'maybe it's time to consider having kids,' some holiday pops up to rain on my thought parade.

I'd mess my kid up.  I have no passion for the things kids need, like holiday traditions.  The thought of wading through thousands of smelly people to find one patch of earth to stand with a crick in my neck looking at explosions that aren't nearly as awesome as the *real* stars makes me feel a little ill.

Don't I make a post like this at every holiday?  Why yes, I do!  :P

Okay, I'll stop kvetching now.  Still not having kids.  With my luck, they'd turn out to be born-again Republicans who celebrate every holiday with materialistic fervor that would make every suburban soccer mom proud.  Or worse, they'd *be* that soccer mom. 

I gotta stop thinking about this.  *om*

Friday was the day I ran errands, because what is a day off for, exactly?  Saturday, I worked.

Sunday, the day of no rest whatsoever.  I got up at 5 to help decorate at the Convention Center for Supreme Council.  Too many supervisors and not enough workers (isn't that the way it always is).  When that was done, my sister and I headed up to see my granny, who was visiting my aunt.  My poor granny.  :(  She's 80 and she has dementia.  She didn't recognize us at all (although it seemed the reason for that was that she remembers us as little kids and not adults and once she got the names together in her head, she knew who we were - or at least who we were supposed to be).  She did recognize my BiL as being married to one of us girls (since he's always looked the same, she "knew" him), lol.  My uncle dropped her off on his way to Florida, so she'll be there another week or so.  He wants everyone to think she has Alzheimer's, for some reason.  She's just an old lady.  There was much love.

My cousin is going to Youngstown State this fall!  :D  I hope she leaves home and never comes back.

We only got to spend 2 hours up there (and that's enough, really), we came back toward home, only to realize that the main route to Grand Assembly will be closed next week.  O.O  Eep.

BUT!  Highlight!  We went to this ice cream place called Sticky Fingers on our way back.  :9  Absolutely, completely true to the name.  Too bad they only had processed ice cream, but I had the BEST fried cauliflower.  Oh, man, fair food, my one true love.

And...I'm tired of talking about my weekend.  Lather, rinse, repeat for today.  Worked, went back downtown, then back to work.  La.

And OMG, hate meme.  Posting to a hate meme anonymously (or at all) is bad karma.  Shame on you.  YEAH YOU.  Yeah, I'm talking to you, you douche.  Douche. 

I still love all of you, screw those douchebags.

Holidays were not a big thing as I was growing up. Nor was religion. Kinda made me rely upon myself if I wanted answers. Although I may be messed up, my head is messed up because of a chemical imbalance, not from a lack of celebrating holidays. Or going to church. Or being involved in politics, or any of those other socially 'responsible' traditions. I say make it up as you go along. You'll be a lot happier, your kid(s) will be well-adjusted, though their perspective on life might be a bit 'odd' to society at large, and you know what? Every one else can just fuck off. They aren't the parent. *grins*

Just a thought.

Of course, if you still maintain your credo of not having children, hey that's up to you, and more power to you.

*LOL* Kids are a crap shoot. Just like life.

Your uncle might be reacting to social stigma or be afraid for himself. Dementia and Alzheimer's have many of the same symptoms. I suppose that Dementia is more of a genetic thing while Alzheimer's seems to be something that we can control a bit. At least we are making some sort of inroads into the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's. OTOH, we don't even look at Dementia as something that is treatable.

It sounds like you had a hella busy weekend.

That was a LAME hate meme. LAMeLAMeLAMe. Totally stupid. There were like three people posting to it. If you were mentioned, everyone managed to ignore it. I didn't even see you mentioned. The few people I did see mentioned that I knew were barely there.

I was bummed. I missed the whole thing. I'd been waiting for a good hate meme to come around and I missed my chance. I had a good rant on my chest. Now I just have to wait. Again.

I'm sick of a few things since I came back to the fandom for the new book. As an oldbie, there's some newbie shit I'm seeing that just isn't flying. I'm returning karma. I wanted to be the bad karma, damn it.

my karma on things like hate memes and other anonymous memes is quite instant, cause I always forget to choose the "anonymous" option.
