I think that's it though. Unless I find out that I got hired on at Costco for real (not just seasonal), there will be another announcement. Until then, I think things will calm down a bit.
Last night I had the pleasure of going to dinner with my good friends Nemesis, and Rules for a Reason. Sometimes it is even that much more fun when you can just vent all of the frustrations that are going on in your life. Last night was much of the same. We are all three gorgeous, successful (they both have their masters degrees, and I finally got my associates degree), single women who don't like it when people think of us as having some sort of disease. In the Utah-Mormon Culture, we are sad sights to behold. There is something wrong with us because we are not married, nor seriously dating anyone at the moment.
We decided that since we are all fed up with the "Oh so sadness" that gets thrown our way, that we would come up with some little sassy comebacks to shut them up. I don't remember all of them, so hopefully one, or both will either comment on this post, or write one of their own to add to it.
- Attack something they are most sensitive about. In my instance, it would be my mother's sons. Anyone who is really familiar with my family knows that the best way to get my mother angry is to say her son is cocky or something!
- Tell them you are dying of cancer, or that you have some other form of disease. When they feel as though they have just stuck their foot in their mouth, you push it in even further by telling them how it really is.
- Explain that you and your "partner" can't be legally married yet in Utah, so you are either going to move to San Francisco, or Canada; OR you had to break it off because of the above mentioned problem.
Why is it that everyone seems to think that you should be depressed, and sitting at home. Yet, likes to throw out the fact that you aren't trying hard enough to find a husband?
Why is it that everyone's uncle's cousin's great aunt's neighbor's friend's mother-in-law's dog's hair groomer who lives in Wisconsin is single, and you would be perfect for each other. Just for the fact that you are both single, and not actually compatible personality wise?
After dinner, I came home and cleaned up my apartment a bit, then snuggled into my bed and turned on Pride and Prejudice (the one with Kiera Knightly). I am pretty sure I have mentioned it before, but there is one line that I can relate to so very much. It is the part where Lizzy is outside swinging on the tire swing and her friend Charlotte comes to tell her that she is engaged to Mr. Collins. When Lizzy expresses her lack of enthusiasm for the union, Charlotte defends her decision:
"I am 27 years old, I've no money, and no prospects. I'm already a burden to my parents...Don't judge me Lizzy. Don't judge me."
The three dots are in place of the phrase "And I'm afraid." I didn't put that in the actual quote because I don't relate to that part so much. I am not going to be sitting at home feeling sorry for myself, and I don't care what you think! Just don't tell me how you think I should feel, or that I am not trying. If so, beware! I get angry just thinking about my mother saying that to me, so actually hearing it again may make me slap you silly!
On a lighter note. Here are some hotties you should take a look at. I would like to thank the folks at KiddieKandids.com for allowing me to borrow these without their permission!
