holiday hangout lounge mk 2021

Let's talk hats

Postby big zorb » Mon Nov 22, 2021 2:31 pm

hello, my sweet beautiful boarders. the holidays are coming up and many of us are still facing, will face for the first time, have decided to face, etc., altered holidays, whether that's not seeing family when you usually would, telling garbo family to fuck off, having more family than ever, celebrating the holidays in iowa, etc. sometimes that can get lonely and shitty, or just boring, or you need to post "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" in order to stay sane..last year i made a holiday hangout lounge for people to hang out during the xmas period but i know thanksgiving has a lot of the same weird moods this year so feel free to hang out in here until jan 2, 2022, and then the lounge is closed again until the following holiday season.

my immediate family is coming over to do thanksgiving on saturday...all of my family on my mom's side have become varying levels of trump fanatics (at best) to q anon true believers (at worse) so i will not be joining them for thanksgiving on The Big Day. it's a bizarre feeling to know people who were, say, around for your birth, whose house you used to stay at for basketball camp, etc, who now genuinely think that hillary clinton is out there drinking a trafficked child's blood. will probably spend some time on thursday reflecting on that!

my only two goals this holiday season are to read a lot and to not drink alcohol. godspeed to me on both!

i don't feel like doing anything for thanksgiving this year but there's MLS playoff games, some women's world cup qualifiers, and the first round of matches for the south american international tournament in manaus so i will have plenty to do. my dad also sent me a bunch of food that he ordered from some honeybaked ham style thing and i have way too much.

i've been strongarmed into flying home for christmas, though, so that should suck

no clue what was going through his head when he ordered all of that.

Thanksgiving was cancelled at home which I'm glad about but I also wasn't planning on going to begin with. Not a whole lot of family drama, but it'd be my first Thanksgiving since coming out and wasn't ready for the potential stress. Looks like I'm going to a friend's thing (I don't like saying "Friendsgiving") which I will make cauliflower gnocchi for

my two dipshit cousins still haven't gotten vaccinated, but they're still planning to go see my 94 year old grandfather at his house. putting him at risk effectively.

i miss the family gatherings but it's all down to those idiots spoiling the broth at this point

i've also been having so much anxiety about everything. i'm in that deep inner zone of bubbling trauma/turmoil and nothing makes sense. i can't believe it's two years of the pandemic life. what in the world

thanks for the thread zorb

i sliced a chunk of my finger off last night while mincing garlic. my sister and her fiancé—who have been living with my mom for about two years with their one-year-old son—had to bail and move to a hotel last night because my mom was lashing out and throwing shit at them and their cat.

shit sucks right now. but my partner and I are making a nice thanksgiving meal for ourselves and then we’ll probably watch that beatles thing.
