    For your holiday complaining enjoyment...

    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    working retail during the holidays, and then still trying to find time to shop for my friends and family. This basically means I have been at the mall almost everyday since mid november. the mall sucks.

    also people who hold up the line of traffic to stalk/wait for some family to load their 10 kids/100 bags into their car so they can steal their spot usually on a ramp in between floors of a parking structure when they could just as easily drive to the top of the structure (the one at my mall is only 4 levels and there is an elevator from the top, and always spaces up there). parking at the mall sucks.

    and at my office job I have the coldest office, in front by the window. even with the heat on it stays freezing in here. I am typing this right now with a sweater, my coat, a scarf, bum gloves, and a blanket wrapped around me. being cold sucks.

    I was trapped on a street between a mall and a strip mall today. Wanted to jump out of my car and lay down in traffic.

    My mother and stepfather are in the middle of the divorce process, but he won't be moved out of her house by Christmas. It's going to be a weird holiday.

    That sounds like it would be brutally awkward and awful. Are you close with him at all?

    I drove up to the Bay Area yesterday; I'll be at my parents' house for 10 days, although I don't think this'll last much longer.

    My mother is literally insane. She just keeps snapping at me, my sister — anyone who is around. She explodes into full-on screaming rages. My sister spent a good part of the evening trying to get her to go to therapy and/or anger management, but my mom responded with the typical insane person response: "I'm fine. It's you who is the crazy one, and it makes me angry. Blah blah blah." I almost want to return all the gifts my sister and I pooled cash together to buy her — a new fucking expensive digital camera and an iPhone because the bitch DOESN'T DESERVE IT.

    My sister has two cats. I had to bring my cat home with me. None of the cats are getting along, and my cat (because she's so emotionally sensitive) is really, really depressed and scared. She spent all day under the bed in the room I'm staying in. (My sister's old room, which is seriously 7 ft by 7 ft.) She moved into my old room about 6 months ago — which is fine, because I haven't lived at home really since I left for college, save a summer at home and Christmas time. But the room is so tiny and a hodge podge of her stuff and my stuff. There's nowhere for me to put anything, so I'm living out of a suitcase. It sucks.

    We have to go to my brother's on Christmas Eve. Usually, I would be OK with this, because we usually do our 25+ year family tradition of making Cuban food on Christmas Eve. (My dad is from Cuba.) However, my brother's newish wife is a total control freak bitch and has to ever everything her way or nothing else. She's Portugese, and this year, she vetoed the Cuban food. Christmas Eve has now transformed into her, her loud drunkard relatives and HER food that SHE likes; none of our traditions are welcomed this year, she's finally succeeded at phasing them all out. Instead of the full roasted pig we usually do, she demanded we make store bought ham. She also doesn't really know how to cook anything but 1950s-esque housewife food — you know, the kind of food that all looks like casserole vomit. So, every other dish on the menu this year is of that "culinary variety": Green bean casserole, boxed potato au gratin, chunky fruit gelatin. My mom is allowed to bring only salad. I'm secretly making a sweet potato + swiss chard gratin from scratch to save myself the grief.

    Not to mention, her mother and father are in town from Portugal for SEVEN WEEKS. They don't speak much English, but that's not the problem. My sister-in-law's mother is very rude to my family, especially to my mother. She ignores anything and everything my mother says, doesn't say two words to my sister or I, and last year even had the gall to tell my sister she wasn't allowed to hold my 2 year-old niece because she hasn't been a mother yet. Um, OK.

    To top this drama all off, my sister-in-law has been holding a silent grudge against me and my sister for a few months now. She doesn't like that we still are friendly and on good terms with my brother's ex wife — who is the mother of my 10 year-old niece. I've known my brother's ex since I was six years old and she has always been like family to me. While my brother's new wife has never made any attempt to get to know me or my sister, include us in anything, or try to do something fun with us, my brother's ex was like an older sister to me growing up. Before she had my niece (which was about 8 years into the marriage), my brother's ex would plan fun sleepovers for my sister and I, take us to dinner or the mall, and when we got older, give us dating advice. She's an incredibly nice person, and we're pretty fond of her new husband. Plus, the fact that she lives 10 minutes from my parents — while me brother and his wife live an hour away — makes it easier for my family to coordinate seeing my niece on odd days through her.

    Because of this, my sister-in-law informed my mother that my sister and I would not be receiving holiday gifts from her or my brother this year; she said that, when we have children, then those children can receive gifts. My sister is 20 and I am 24; kids won't be in the picture for another 6-10 years. Not to mention — my mom and dad always get my brother and his wife extremely expensive and thoughtful gifts every year, and my mom even buys hundreds of dollars in toys for my sister-in-law's brother's kids. NOT EVEN FAMILY. It sounds petty to lay it out like this, but she's being totally controlling and immature and I can't get over it.

    Can you tell I'm not looking forward to Christmas?

    Is it some giant ordeal to maybe walk down the block to smoke? And your "on edge" feeling is called withdrawl, get used to it if you end up pregnant one day. And if youre so obsessed with having something in your mouth, get a pack of gum.

    Sounds like my sisters girlfriend. I've never met a more miserable cunt and I refuse to give in to her pity party, bring everyone down on christmas bs. She is also physically and verbally abusive to my sisters kids - so I will have nothing to do with her.
    I'm going out with friends on christmas eve and snowboarding the next day.

    I got uninvited from my best friend's family Xmas gathering by his crazy hoarder sister because she "doesn't like the way I socialize". I'm not sure what that means other than the fact that I get quiet in groups sometimes. I can't exactly complain about this, because the same sister freaked out on the family at Thanksgiving when someone talked while she was trying to watch a Nora Jones TV special, then she faked a heart attack in front of everyone. She always causes drama for no reason and I couldn't be happier I've been exiled.

    My family does Xmas early since my mom is a flight attendant, and it's usually really chill except for this year. My mom has this little tiny dog and my step brother shows up with his huge Golden-mix dog, which almost killed the little one right in front of us while we were unwrapping presents. Kind of killed the mood.

    Good idea. I might just do that. Even though I'm too poor to have bought presents for any of my friends. Although what I really want to do is go to this free all night party in Detroit on Christmas night. Again, too poor.

    I tried going shopping at Fox Hills Mall in Culver City yesterday, but there was absolute gridlock in the parking lot, no parking spaces, and everyone was honking. The traffic officers might as well have been bell ringers. So I left without shopping, and went across the street to Holy Cross Cemetery to get a little peace, and to visit my grandparents and my ex-bf's father. Dead relatives are so much easier to deal with. But I do admit, we had some great Christmas visits at Grandma's place in Torrance.

    I can't just "walk down the block" My mom would ask 20 something questions and throw a fit. Like I said, she is a little high strung and somewhat nuts. I would just go smoke like a big girl, excerpt that I don't want to listen to her non-stop bitching about it for the next 4 days. I thought this was a place to complain about the holidays and what they entail. My mistake.
