OK, well, Mom didn't change my letter
too much, this time but as usual, I'll clue U in on the changes. Mike soooo did not tell me abt that "great trick" of doing an outline 4 English paperz & then w8ing a few dayz 2 come back 2 it. I got that "great trick" fr. a composition book I have, which, actually, Liz bought me. Oh, & Dunc. Mom played up the drama on that 4 sum reason. I think she's decided Eva is, like, his "approved gf" since the Keesha thing didn't work out. What I'd originally written was that Dunc thinx Eva's nice an' has pretty eyez. Oh, also Ger is in my English* class. It's true that Eva & I teamed up on an interview thing, but Mom 4 sum reason decided that no1 I know fr. middle school is in that class.
And, on to Mom's letter
. That "in cahoots with Duncan" thing? Same as above. And tell me this passage isn't bizarro, peeps:
I love seeing my son interact with his family. He and Deanna have a good partnership, and they clearly adore their children. For me, it's an opportunity to see how our parenting skills paid off- and I think we did quite well. Now, it's payback time! There's a certain amount of satisfaction in seeing a kid that you struggled with...struggling with his own!
Doesn't it seem sorta nasty she's so happy about the "struggle"? Oh, an' look @ her acting all like she doesn't know about Liz an' Paul d8ing, like she doesn't read Lizzie's letters. And, like, make changes, if she feelz like it. Oh, and check out this stuff she sez abt blogging:
So many of them keep websites; I find that really interesting. I used to hide my diary under a loose floorboard in my bedroom; these kids are posting theirs for the world to see because they want understanding so badly. Weblogs are a great outlet, but when the wrong people find them, look out! It's amazing how much personal drama is enacted in public over the Internet. And it's in a medium that people of my generation could scarcely have imagined (except for those who were working to bring it about). It's incredible
So, like, who clued in my Mom that there R blogz out there that Rn't just random pix & recipez, like my fake blog
? Steph, was it U? Just pls don't tell her abt my real blog, K? I'll even pay 4 the next mannies if U'll just B kewl abt this!
Hey, funny Mom is worried abt keeping her grandkidz outta the dog food, but I guess it's OK if Gramps chomps on doggie biscuits. Speaking of which, flu? Ma doesn't want 2 admit she's punishing gramps 4 another Dixie havarti infraction.Liz
. More on how the Mtiggies R all nosy & don't give her & Paul NE privacy. But if U read here regularly, U knew that already.
Sob story from Mike
abt Anthony. How judgmental is this?
Dad tells me that Anthony's marriage problems are taking a toll on him. He looks tired and he feels he's failed. Therese is busy traveling, taking courses and climbing up the corporate ladder. There's no glass ceiling as far as she's concerned - just mirrors, and she likes what she sees. Therese is a sharp woman who tried to be something she isn't. She wanted the stability of marriage but not the sameness. She never shared Anthony's vision of home and family, although for his sake she tried. Instead of talking things out and working toward a solution, she has become distant and more devoted to her career. She's rarely home these days and Anthony expects to have to make plans for a future without her.
But w8, instead of working toward a solution and talking thingz out w/Therese, wasn't Anthony whining 2 Liz about "I have no home" & "W8 4 me"? So how is Anthony superior? And how is Mike putting in crazy hours 4 his work better than when Therese does it? @ least, Mike finally admits Dee earns more $ than he does.Dee
wants U 2 practice gd hygiene, yo!
And just when U thot my dad
couldn't B NE more boring than when he writes abt trainz, he has 2 prove U wrong by harping on tool kits. TOOL KITS? He thinx he shd give 'em as prezzies every yr so peeps won't want NE prezziez fr. him NEmore. Passive aggressive much, Dad? And he's so bored w/his life he's happy when he givez himself something 2 do by breaking the window so's he can use the tools.Gramps an' Iris
. Yeah, so I helped Iris w/shopping 4 her grandkids. It's nice that she enjoyed having lunch w/me @ the mall. & it was nice of her 2 say I'm well-informed abt WW2 & stuff.
LOL, so this month it was Mom's turn 2 write the pets' letter
. But she totally makes it sound like I lied abt having "a mountain of homework" (allegedly
?). Like I'd just make that up 2 get outta writing the st00pid pet letter. Yeah, Ma, whatevs. I guess it's nice that she sez I take gd care off Buttsy, but many peeps don't put 2 much stock in2 what Mom sez abt pet care!
* I mentioned this boo-boo 2 Steph, the web designer who helps my mom. She then re-edited my letter 2 say that Eva sits next 2 me in history
class, an' that that
is the class where no1 else I know fr. middle school has the same class I do. Only, that makes a whole new prob, cuz remember back in September when Becky sed that history isn't till second semester
? Anyway, Eva an' I can't even remember which class we did our interview thingy 4. It mighta been French class. Eva & I R both in honours French, tho I switched 2 it a bit l8.
