Today we went to my sisters for a Pampered Chef party. I love that stuff and the food.
After that, we rushed off to my Nephew/God-Son’s birthday party. That was cool. I got to see some family I haven’t seen in a while. Cept, my brother-in-law didn’t say anything to me, not a hi or nothing (found out later he just wasn’t feelin well). I wondered if I did something to make him mad? But his Brother and I (who used to work with me) we talked up a storm and caught up. So that was nice.
One thing that I cannot stand: people who always seem to find something about you to nit-pick and cut you down so that they can feel better about themselves.
I won’t go into specifics or whom, but I cannot stand when people feel the need to berate you to your face to make them look better than you. Especially when they don’t realize they are doing it. I can understand when it is in a joking way, I do that with a few people, but I try to make sure they don’t feel cut down and it is only with a select few and they joke right back. But to honestly say a comment to you face or ASSUME something. Remember people, NEVER ASSUME.…all that does is make and ASS out of U and ME!
Another thing that bothers me: people who have to be the center of attention at all times. You don’t need to go around and tell everyone there something about you. Lay off! It is someone else’s birthday, let them enjoy the attention!
But, I guess the thing that really frosts me: is when people assume that because Amy and I are overweight, that we need large amounts of food or that when we ask for a small piece they give us a huge one instead. For Instance, Amy was helping dish people up and when it came her turn, she said, “a very small piece of cake and just a little bit of ice cream.” What did she get? A piece of cake the size of three pieces, and about 2 large scoops of ice cream.
Just because I am overweight, doesn’t mean I do anything to make myself this way. I only eat cake and ice cream at birthday parties, I only eat candy at Easter, Cookies at Halloween and Christmas, I really hate chips. The only kind I eat are nacho chips with Salsa…and Salsa is actually good for you!
The rest of the year I am eating salads, Chicken Caesar wraps, chicken and pasta and veggies. Healthy food. So what gives you the right to say to someone else that I am fat because I eat too many sweets. I don’t eat sweets, I really don’t like sweets. I am overweight because my lifestyle doesn’t give me a lot of time to be active and my job is a desk job. I can’t exactly do it running on a treadmill.
It is just like in High school when people would say that I ate too many twinkies. I HATE TWINKIES! So F*CK OFF! And it is not like most of the people who say this are in any better shape, so don’t use me as a way to make yourself look skinnier (or try and believe you are–I have seen the shit you eat!)
You don’t know what I had to grow up with. You don’t know what I battle with everyday, all the comments I have to deal with. IT HURTS people! And especially DO NOT tell your kids that Amy and I are fat because we eat too many sweets AND DO NOT TEACH THEM to make comments like that to overweight people, that is just sick and wrong! Just because you don’t want them to eat that stuff, don’t use me as an excuse.
Anyways…(sorry for the rant, I just had to get that out) on the way back we stopped at the Bigger Burger in Elk River to see if it is as good as the ones in Sioux Falls. Verdict.…YES! IT was grubbin! And Cheap! $3.50 for a bigger Burger, Fries and a really large pop. But 1 burger was plenty enough for me. Remember I DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO THINK I AM A FAT PIG.
Then we came home and waiting on my step was my new AIWA turntable! I Was so EXCITED!
We hooked everything up and tried some records that sounded really bad on my old machine and they sounded PERFECT. The turntable is made to go with my Mini-System and it really goes together well. Now I can get all my albums on CD! I am so happy. Amy said it was my father’s day present. I can accept that!
Now I am just sitting here and putting my LPs onto my computer so that I can cut them, mix them and burn them onto my special Vinyl CDs that my Cool father-in-law gave me!
