tsukinofaerii: Roxas "imasen deshita" (I was not)
I am typing this at work while deluged with calls. (applies head to desk) Such a mess today, you have no idea. I wish I could reach through the phone sometimes.

This weekend wasn't bad. On Saturday I went out for margaritas at a local restaurant with a cousin. Wheeee. Three down and I was blitzed. Seriously, I've never gotten that drunk off of only three margaritas. Either my tolerance was low or the alcohol content was really high. After that, we went to the theater and saw Fast Five (which I followed nothing on, and apparently it was not the margarita's fault). The night was finished with going home and watching Iron Man with [livejournal.com profile] waterofthemoon (who had never seen it before), [personal profile] clex_monkie89 and [personal profile] valtyr. Good times were had by all.

Sunday went... Well, Sunday happened, as Sundays do. We did a fairly big dinner for Mary's Mother's Day gift and watched the A-Team. I took time to call Mom, and the phone got hijacked by my dad. That's right. I called Mom on Mother's Day, and my father who I haven't spoken with since September decided that would be a good time to talk to me. WTF. He just wanted to let me know that he forgives me for hurting his feelings, and that he's disappointed that I took "don't talk to me again" as some indication that I shouldn't call. Silly me. Oh, and he has this new thing that he's doing and he wanted to know if I could make a website...

I just... really, dad? You forgive me for hurting your feelings? And you need a favor too, huh? No, no, don't ask what I've been doing for the last eight months, it's surely not important compared to your latest wacky scheme. Great way to make me feel loved. (headdesk)

I should have snapped at him. Or told him that maybe he's forgiven me, but I don't want it when I didn't do anything wrong. Something. But I was just in such shock that he had the audacity to even start that bullshit, and on Mother's Day. He didn't care enough to call me himself (or email!), but he'll yank the phone from Mom on her special day in order to try and get concessions from me. That's just my dad all over. I don't know what I should do, so I'm just going to pretend it didn't happen. He was probably drinking (Mom says he wasn't, but IDK if she's covering his ass or not), and if so he likely doesn't even remember it. If he does, and he wants to talk about it, maybe next time I'll remember to stop him in his tracks. I did manage to tell him that I don't think I did anything wrong, which is a start I guess?

Argh. I wish I'd saved those margaritas. (sigh)
tsukinofaerii: Sora looking confused (Huh?)
This morning when I walked into the office, I was greeted by a package of tampons, shampoo and heartburn medication. Okay then.

This weekend was a good one! Papa came home!


Also, a cousin moved back in. Her boyfriend got a really good job opportunity a few cities away, and so she's staying with us until she can find a job in that area. Smart Girl is not moving without a source of money securely in hand. Knowing this cousin, this is likely her single smart choice of the year, so I applaud it extra hard. The downside of this is that I do not yet know if this will mean an extra set of hands, an extra person to make messes, or simply a neutral zone if she cleans up after herself but does nothing else. She hasn't been at home in years, so who knows.

I do know that the bathroom has been taken over by four different types of moisturizer (hand, foot, face and body), a straightening iron, a blow dryer, astringents, gels, toners, "bronzing creams"... @_@ Learning to share a bathroom in the morning again is annoying, but somehow resisting the urge to ask how much all the junk costs is more so. This is someone who has notorious difficulty paying her share of her car insurance, which is on her mother's policy. And she also has trouble with gigantic cell phone bills. But she is buying Estee Lauder facial creams? And the refrigerator is now stocked with food that worries me. Real butter-flavored not!butter! Soy Milk Substitutes. Protein shakes. Low/No calorie everything. I mean, how many chemicals can someone put into their body in the name of health?! (Okay, I have been informed that Soy is actually food, but still.) I am all for healthy eating, but it seems really silly to me to spend double on a product that claims to be healthy because most of the ingredients can't be digested by humans. Instead of buying not!butter, why not just... you know, not eat much butter?

On the other hand, she functions as an excellent example of how health and happiness cannot be purchased, and beauty has more to do with who you are than what the name on your moisturizer is. And she will force me to start exercising again, which is something I've slacked on since Papa went into the hospital.

Finally... A meme! I cannot do fills (at work), but it should be spread around, yes/yes?
