ever heard of the internet?

It’s an awesome place, really. Where you can find tons of useful information instead of having to ask people who don’t like you.

Of course, leave it to my 26-year-old sister-in-law to be so oblivious as to think that it’s okay to come to someone she just gave expired lotion and a men’s grooming kit to to demand information that she could easily find herself online. She’s been harassing both my husband and myself for the name of our super awesome wedding photographer for her “friend.” Normally, I wouldn’t mind giving her name out because who am I to try to keep totally public information to myself. But, you see, my dear sister-in-law has this hero complex and only wants the information so she can play the hero to her friend without giving me or my husband any credit for finding this incredible photographer (which, by the way, took me about three days of intensive internet research to find). There’s no way I’m giving up information that took so much of my effort to find so easily to someone who’s just using me for it. Besides, it’s her own fault for not being resourceful enough to find the information herself. Seriously, how hard can it be? Even so, I just can’t help but be amazed by her audacity. She seriously has no shame at all.

happy new year!

I know, I know.  I disappeared for awhile there.  Hopefully I haven’t lost all two of my readers with my little vanishing act, but I was just so ready for a vacation from everything, including blogging.  But now, it’s a new year and I’m back…and with plenty of gossip.

I was cautiously looking forward to a mostly inlawless holiday season because mother-in-law and the two brothers-in-law claimed to be going out of town to ruin someone else’s Christmas.  I suspected it was too good to be true and I was right.  Turns out the plane tickets were too expensive and no one bothered to inform my husband or me of their change in plans.  So Christmas day I find myself at their house yet again with everyone acting awkward, awkward, awkward.  It didn’t help that sister-in-law’s miniman was there yet again.  They’ve only been dating for six months or so and yet he’s coming over for all holidays and sleeping in the same bedroom as her and everything.  I don’t understand how she is getting away with this because just two years ago, mother-in-law flipped out when she bought queen-sized bed sheets because she thought it meant sister-in-law was living with her man-of-the-moment.

And did I mention that this miniman is an absolute sleaze? Yeah, I can’t even look at him straight because I’m scared he’s undressing me with his eyes.  He was super flirty with sister-in-law’s 17-year-old cousin.  So flirty that even my usually completely oblivious husband noticed.  And all in front of sister-in-law’s face.  I’m sure in her delusional mind she was thinking that his behavior indicated that he would be great with kids.  Yeah, sure, great at molesting kids maybe.

But despite all of his sketchiness, my husband’s family seems to be embracing him and treating him with the utmost respect.  Too much, even.  I firmly believe that their behavior has something to do with the fact that he’s Caucasian and they’re not.  As an outsider looking in, what I see is them acting totally submissive because they subconsciously think he’s better than them because he’s Caucasian.  I called my husband out on it, but he denied it.  Then in the next breath, he’s talking in the most submissive tone possible to this sleazebag. He doesn’t even speak so sweetly to me.  It really made me sick.  And it made me really want to open my mouth and treat him how he deserves to be treated. But, unfortunately, it just wasn’t my place and I knew it.  So I kept my mouth shut even though it drove me absolutely crazy to do so.

Then it was time to open gifts.  But it was just my husband and I doing the opening.  Because they were incredibly impatient and just had to open their gifts at midnight.  I wasn’t expecting much, but somehow, they still managed to disappoint.  Not only that, but sister-in-law, the very same sister-in-law who shows up each time with a different LV or Kate Spade or Coach bag and whose eyes light up every time any brand name is mentioned, blatantly gave me re-gifts.  It’s kind of hard to pretend you like a men’s grooming kit.  And expired lotion.  I kid you not.  Too bad I didn’t discover the fact that the lotion was expired until later.  Or else I would have completely rubbed it in her face right then and there.  Quite literally, in fact.

So, yes, long story, but after that little discovery, I decided that I don’t give a crap about sister-in-law ending up with a pedophile miniman who’s probably going to molest their children and cheat on her with his hot young dental assistant.  That’s what she gets for giving me re-gifts when I put a lot of thought and money into her gift. Oh yeah, and for being an utter and complete bitch.   I just have to remember to keep my own kids far, far away from this guy in the future.  At least I’ll have a good excuse for boycotting every single family function.

the holidays are coming…

…and yeah, I would tend to agree that it’s a tad early for me to even be thinking about them, but I just can’t help it when I go to the store to buy some Halloween candy only to be inundated with Christmas stuff already.  Couldn’t I at least have Halloween in peace without the specter of the holidays looming ahead?  I’ve been kind of complacent, believing that I have my holiday shopping taken care of, but the people who are the hardest to find gifts for still remain giftless.  Not only that, but sister-in-law is already trying to figure out our Thanksgiving schedule.  What a hypocrite she is, by the way, because we never heard the end of it when we wanted to skip out on Thanksgiving last year and this year, but she nonchalantly tells us that she won’t be around for Thanksgiving day because she’s spending it kissing her MiniMan’s family’s ass.  And they’re just dating  (I’m pretty sure that if my husband had skipped out on Thanksgiving with his precious family when we were just dating, he would have been disowned).  And he’s mini.  As much as I want her to suffer single forever, I think that I will be just as amused if she marries him because he’s mini.  So mini that she kind of slumps over in pictures with him so that he doesn’t look so mini.  Yeah.
