Thanks!

It started at 5, so pre-sunset. The weather forecast was for storms but while it was overcast on and off, the weather held out and was gorgeous. The clouds kept our friends and families from getting too hot out there.

Oh, I agree!

I asked the coordinator yesterday midday what happens if there's lightening and she told me the official options but then said that they've never had to cancel a beach baptism. Totally makes sense to me....

Here are the btches, btches. Someone else will have to take over for a while, I'm on the unemployment line for the next two weeks. Gotta try to find another job, I don't think this one is going to last much longer.

So, our chat with SIL went over like a lead balloon. It pretty much ended...nay, began, with her storming out of the restaurant.

Casual conversation about them switching schools and why do they think that it will be different socially. What if it's not? Her: "I'll just isolate myself even more. Us: That's not really an answer. If you're going to be a psych major, you're going to have to stop being so hyper critical of other people. Her: "I'll switch majors." That's not the answer, either. You need to learn to deal with people and make friends. Plus, your future husband here is going to be a pastor. Pastor's wife is a job in and of itself which requires you to deal with people diplomatically. Her: "What can I say? I'm a d1ck. I don't want to talk about it." (storms out of restaurant) And I thought she wasn't self-aware. Cue to us having a 20 minute convo with the fiance about it while she sat outside pouting.

Is she just young? Insecure? You and J are family, but behavior like this is likely to drive away a fiance.

Holy cow!

How did the convo with the fiance go? Is he as stubborn and anti-social? I don't mean to sound that harsh, I just can't think of another way to put it.

He doesn't handle stress well, either, but I think he's more aware than she is. More socially adept. He was mostly quiet. Said he'd talk to her. I think he'd be fine staying at their school if it wasn't for her.

She's just immature and coming off of a really sh1tty childhood. I don't think this guy is smart enough to run.

I am off to hear a Mariachi Opera in downtown Waukegan . Chicago peeps can understand how weird that sounds but for a $10 ticket at a refurbished historical theater, I'm game.
Wednesday I get to hear a Tango Opera downtown.
Its not Rush but it "still rock and roll to me" sorta.
The Genesee?

We've been there twice to see the Imagination Movers (a kid-oriented rock band) so Mariachi doesn't seem that weird.

That's only if he gets the job he's trying to get. But I'd still be dealing with the same sht. And that's assuming the powers that be even WANT me in that position.
