“I wondered how many people there were in the world who suffered, and continue to suffer, because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve, and in their blindness and folly built up a great distorted wall in front of them that hid the truth.”—
“Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-o, and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have.”—Penn Jillette (via girlagainstreligion) FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!
Getting things off my chest.. (cause there isn't enough room up there for more stuff!)
I can’t blab on FB because everyone and their brother is on there now-a-days. I feel the need to vent though and air the dirty laundry. I’m such an attention whore like that.
So topic #1. I despise my husband’s siblings. I know we should have empathy for the mentally ill and all but damn. My sweet hubby has an older brother and a younger sister. We shall refer to them here as Brother and Sister. They were all raised in the same house by their bipolar, alcoholic mother and workaholic father.
Brother is an emotionally stunted and personality absent baby. He’s never had a healthy relationship with a woman, has few friends and his a hypochondriac. He was a cop (I know. Right? So awesome) but he got fired recently. He blames everyone for his ridiculous life and generally acts like a 12 year old child.
Sister is a repressed lesbian. Had she been born into a more open and understanding family and had been able to be herself; she might have had a chance. This was not the case though, if her parents had known she was gay they would have destroyed her. So she has fought it her whole life. She refused to play college sports because “of all those dykes” and is adamantly conservative and a staunch tea party Republican. (we often hate what we fear about ourselves, non?) She was a virgin until she was 20, had one very weird relationship with a guy then met The Criminal. Sister was also a cop btw. She hooked up with The Criminal who had a domestic violence record, is a drunk and looooooves guns. Awesome. So she gets pushed out of her job due to her relationship with a loser and her lovely personality (or lack thereof). The Criminal can’t keep a job for more than a week because he has such a nasty temperament, but Sister and him say it’s because of the liberal government here where we live so they pack up and move somewhere they feel is more conservative and I say ADIOS ass holes! Last I hear she is attempting to get pregnant. Never was there anyone less emotionally ready to raise a child.
Both of these idiots have convinced themselves that my wonderful husband is out to destroy them. We think it’s due in part to jealousy. We’ve been married for a long time and have a nice family. They are, well, totally insane. So they use whatever chance they get to hurt us and act like somehow my husband is the devil incarnate.
Currently they have ganged up on The Husband and have decided that they “Hate him and he can fuck off”. The poor guy did NOTHING. Isn’t family wonderful?!
