parent's yearly Post Boxing day party

ugh...this happens every year. I never know why i feel the need to attend. I never help out in organizing or prepping it, because, truth be told, even if i offer, they usually yell at me to stay the heck out of their way. some reason it's okay for my sisters to help out. So, here i am in my room, posting on LJ, reading and posting to LJ friends, and chatting on Mixi (to be explained in another post).
on top of all this...every year it goes down the same way: there is always this one UBER old guy who is a long-time family friend, who seems to think that now, seeing i am older, it's appropriate for him to hit on me. (EWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!); then there is the "so are you dating anyone" from the rest of my parent's friends. to which i ALWAYS answer: "i am focusing on my career"; then that usually follows the "don't you want to get married and have kids" to which i think "don't you want to shut the F*K up and let me live my life?" I really don't knowo why i try to be the "good daughter" by showing up, when clearly i have been a black sheep all my life. >.<
then again the word FREE in front of food an alcohol easily sways my opinion. and, mum is a GOURMET cook. yum!
the whole party is quite harrowing for me. the only reason i am staying here, this year, is that some family is stopping by, due to my uncle being in the hospital for cancer (he ha two weeks to live). My other saving grace is going to meet hezziwig-chan in NYC tonite for shochu and pre-newyears celebration.

right .... hope everyone else's saturday is fun!

If nothing else, it's good to be married and have kids JUST to avoid that whole annoyance! :D

This Christmas every unmarried cousin was asked whether they were seeing anyone, and the one who has a steady boyfriend was asked when they were finally going to settle down and start having kids.

Why does everyone think that it's their buisness? And most importantly, do they REALLY want to hear honest answers?

so true!

this afternoon i was set-up twice. they say "oh lusmila i have a son who is perfect for you!". people DO think it's their business, >.< and they DON"T want to hear the real answer. Though, i was really proud of myself, this afternoon, I told both women I appreciate their offer, but i hate being set-up.

And more than likely the one they're trying to set you up with doesn't want it anymore than you do. Of course, if they DO want to be set-up, than you REALLY don't want to have anything to do with them!
