how do you have a small wedding and not invite people? Especially if you’re related? For instance, I have a huge family and my fiancees parents have passed away. I started making a list and I already am at 75 people! I can’t fill that many people with Mexican food and booze. I am hella broke. In my fantasies it’s a goth disco, everyone is wearing black and gold and none of my cousins are there. How do I make this a reality? It’s going down right before I move to Seattle permanently. Add to this the fact that I don’t care if anyone thinks I am a bitch. Can it be done?
Going to visit my grandparents today. Not excited. My grandmother injured her back pretty badly. I just washed down four codeine with an iced coffee with four shots of espresso in it. Thanks Weatherstone. Both side of my family come from Sweden. One side is ultra money, my grandfather was in the CIA (no liez). But, he held them hostage and raised them in Germany so all five of his children are kind of wacky, my mom is the most sane one! On the other side of my family, oh….they’re totally racist and sexist, but completely liberal democrats. It’s very bizarre. My Dad is awesome though, he shreds the guitar like it was the early eighties. After not seeing my grandfather for almost four years, this is our conversation:
me: hello grandpa, how are you?
grandpa: fine, so, when are you going to have some great grandbabies for me?
grandpa: Oh, that’s right, you’re putting your education and career before your family!
me: oh wow! you’re being funny! no, I mean I am never having kids.
Less than five minutes later I had this conversation with my grandmother regarding my Mexican boyfriend.
grandma: so how long have you been with your boyfriend?
me: five years.
grandma: so, is he like….a Mexican Mexican?
me: what do you mean by that? like, is he here illegally or something? his grandparents were born here!
grandma: are both of his parents Mexican?
me: both of his parents are dead. Look, all of my boyfriends have been Mexican, the one you thought was white was actually half German and half Mexican. I had one boyfriend that was from El Salvador. I’ve never slept with a white guy, ok?
