I talk about my relationship, I fear people feel
that I in turn judge people who look at life
differently. Couldn't be further from the truth. I'm
just reporting facts on The Journey and one fact is
that Talya and I don't give each other
- You did read that
correctly. There are no birthday cards, presents,
Christmas presents, Valentines Day stuff - nothing. We
celebrate with time. Memories. Videos. Moments. I
don't write that as if it's a better way than anyone
else, it simply is. And for those of you out there who
are certain that she secretly wants those gifts and is
lying to me? <throws hands up> How do
I even answer that?!?! Verbatim,
- "Hey, you wanna do
something for me today on Valentines Day? Make coffee.
- And there you go.
If she really wanted something for all of these
special days and has held that in for four years?
Well, shit. LOL.
- It also has a lot
to do with our limited space and ever-growing need to
clear more space for those little ones who have taken
over. That and the fact that for the younger
generation? I will never understand cards. Give me a
good conversation any day of the week. Buying a card
someone else wrote, handing it to them and then
knowing they will throw it away has always, and will
always, strike me as bizarre. What can I say,
we're weird - but again, we never buy each other
anything except going out to dinner. There may come a
time, when we aren't as space conscious and aren't
also trying to scheme a way to make ends meet while
also spending so much time at home... where we will
have the luxury of buying items we don't actually
need that we will enjoy giving each other. But
most likely? When we want those things? We'll just go
out and get them without waiting for a day when we're
told we're supposed to get them.
- Now, I say
ALLLLLLLLLLL that to show this Valentines Day
party of a bunch of 1 year olds being all 1 and stuff.
It's cute and the video of the falling camera is being
anxiously awaited by the mothers who are in it... so
here you are:
- Ha. This freeze
frame is awesome:
- Some of those
faces could be watching a beheading it's so
traumatizing to them. LMFAO. Meanwhile the kids are
all "Mom, I break shit every, day. What's the big
deal?" Too much. Tooooo funny.
- So yeah,
Valentines Day becomes a kid event and I'm not sure
how our lack of "gift-giving" is going to effect
our kids. They will obviously get birthday gifts, etc.
but if they are as nonchalant as we are - won't they
piss off their peers? This is such a "things" society
and I don't know how our "anti-things" viewpoints
won't eventually rub off.
- It will be
interesting to follow I guess. Alright - surprise
entry coming up next! WOO HOO!
