Another One Bites

I'm at work all day avoiding the Christmas baked goods with visions of Big Sis'lasagna dancing in my head. I finally get off work and call Big Sis to tell her I'll be there in an hour or so. Got the presents and the bottle of wine all ready to go.

She tells me that she assumed I'd be at the girlfriend's place for the holiday, and they were cooking steaks and brussel sprouts ( yish! ) for dinner. Then tomorrow they were having some friends over for dinner, but we can get together Monday to exchange gifts.

So as she's telling me this over my cell phone, I'm just sitting there trying to keep from laughing. With the current gf situation I have been dreading this holiday so much. Knowing that I have to end things after the holidays and just trying to slide by until then.

I know that is such a rotten thing to do. I know it. I feel awful about it, but better than I imagined I would feel if I broke things off right before the holidays. But since making that decision, I have watched things steadily erode to the point that I am sitting here completely alone for the holiday.

I don't know if it's Christmas karma, but I do know that it is definately a possibility that I set myself up for. I'm cool with it. Okay universe, give me my comeuppance already.

So I grab a burger on the way home, and all I want to do is settle in and get caught up on some reading. But now my gf is calling both my home and cell phones back and forth every fifteen minutes. What the hell does she want?
She knows my supposed plans, and I know hers. Honestly. We exchanged gifts last night. I gave her exactly what she asked for, but then she asked, "No surprise gift?" Oh come on. That's not even fair, but it didn't surprise me.

I just want to be alone right now. Stop calling me, already. I mean, I'm cool with everything except feeling like a world class shit about all of this. I can't talk to her right now. I can't explain to her that all my plans went down the drain. Because my only real plan for the holidays was to get thru them so I could dump her. So we could just finally go our seperate ways. Finally. It'll be better for both of us.

Why the hell is she calling my home phone? She thinks I'm at big Sis'. She's left four messages already telling me that she hopes I'm having fun. Oh wait, here comes number five. It's a Twilight Zone Christmas Special, everyone.


On a lighter note, I've opened three of the presents my coworker's got me. Let me see....

1 small bottle of Listerine - the bastard

1 soup bowl with handle - for future panhandling?

1 canister of 'Anti Monkey Ass' powder - Monkey Ass??!!!!

Halitosis, alright; nothing worse than a panhandler with bad breath .....but Monkey Ass?

Seriously...Monkey Ass?

So far I have one 'Thank You' card to write.

Jezzzus Spin...

Anti-Monkey Ass! That's a freakin' squeaker, ain't it?! Though, I suspect any monkeys who might be hangin' around would be thrilled! Like one of those red-butted babboon dudes - you just smear it on and VOILA! Next thing you know, he's a "new" man. Virtual magic in a canister!

I once got a gift from a friend of mine - a tube of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I never really did find out what her motivation was. Was she thinking I had a rash or was it a way of telling me to quit whining? Then again, maybe it was a hint for me to grease her up. She did have an ass like a baby monkey! *LMAO*

If it was me, I'd send 'em all Thank You cards - Thanx for makin' me have to send these cards!

Merry Freakin' Christmas, Spinner


PS: I got those matches right here, if you need a couple.

Baby-cakes, the monkey ass powder isn’t meant to be applied to your being–it is meant to be sprinkled around your perimeter to keep monkey ass out of your face, darlin! Sounds like you could really use some about now–give that can a couple good shakes!

As for the Listerine, no one meant you had bad breath. Listerine can be used as an antiseptic to disinfect wounds or broken blisters. When mixed with Epson salts, liquid soap, ammonia, and beer (buy the cheap grasshopper piss brand) it can be used to fertilize the lawn.

The soup bowl with a handle? Perfect for French Onion Soup. Absolutely ideal. Perspective, perspective, perspective.

In spite of everything–and if nothing else–you still have managed to maintain your wit and humor. Sorry you had one of those let down days. I know it all too well.

Here’s a little something to cheer you up. A friend of mine once gave me a sleeveless maternity top for Christmas. Not only was I not pregnant, I was height and weight proportionate. The kicker was she accidentally left the price tag on which indicated several markdowns to a grand total of like $1.50. We no longer exchange gifts.

A year from now, all our troubles will be out of sight....{=}

12/30/2005 12:51 pm sorry it all worked out this way...she sounds like she really flaked. Was it always like this? Were there warning signs? Or did she just flake out because of her own emotional baggage during the holidays. Could be she's not a rotten horrible ugly person, but just has some baggage and needs to work through it better before next season

mzhunyhole So far my favorite present is you stopping by. I hope you had a Very Merry One.
Krissy I hope you got everything you wanted this year. I know you've been a good girl.
Solar I hope your Christmas was a good one. Last year I got some 'Butt Floss'. Whaddayagonnado? Full round of 'Thanks' notes sent.
Bard I hope you enjoyed the day, and had some primo time with those you love. Holidays are tough, but always enjoyable in one way or another.
Fox Awwww, thank you. I hope your plans were great and the day was very special.
Maggie! Thank you so much! Mu'ahhh
Nic Thank you. I hope your holiday was great. Well. So far all I can tell is that it is a combination of talcum and camomille lotion powder for dusting one's backside to prevent chafing. Made by the Anti Monkey Ass Co. of Buda, Texas. USA Truth can be stranger than fiction. I bet they make millions.
sj365 I hope your Christmas was a merry one. I'll hold onto it. Just in case. LOL
tillerbabe I know. *crawling back under rock*
SW #1 I hope you had a Merry Christmas. The gag gifts were apreciated and great for a laugh. I wont tell what I got them. And unworn maternity tops are great for cleaning windows.
Safira Welcome Here! I'm glad you did, too. A recent post of yours gave me the best laugh I have had in a long time. Thank you so much! I hope your Christmas was Merry and your New Year is Spectacular.
fantasia I hope you had a great Christmas!

Well, it turned out that her kids really didn't have a problem with me being there. They were wondering where I was, especially after she told them which presents were from me. I honestly don't know for sure what her reasons were. Things are never easy between just the two of us, and adding family to it just seems to complicate it more. I do like her family alot, all of them. I will miss them. That makes me sad, to think of all the people I will wind up missing because she and I can't make it work. She really does have alot of good points. I wish I could just concentrate on them. *sigh*

Have you read the instructions on the Monkey-Ass Powder? What’s the deal- Add water and get a brown, banana-based paste? I’ve currently got a Post fermenting that deals with monkeys… their asses only obliquely. First off, I’ve gotta get thru a certain Scots tune that’s suitable both for seeing the old year out, and for singing on an increasingly canted deck…

It seems the lesser of two weevils, the waiting out of the holidays to drop the hammer. Given recent events, you’re a damned sight more charitable than’s deserved.

On the plus side, be glad it was just Listerine- I once gave a guy I worked with a box of Extra-Strength Midol…



Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.

And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!

Mr.P "The Piper is down!" I knew I saw your picture on the "Scottish Wall of Fame".

"Auld Lang Syne" What does that mean? I always wanted to hear Billy Idol sing it.

It looks to me to be glorified talcum powder, and what benefit talcum powder on one's backside is; I just don't know.
A little Vas on the ass is soothing once in a while, but no grit however fine. Puhleease!

I'm not so sure about the charity on my part. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep in mind what must be done while sparing her feelings in the present. I am living a lie during the most cherished time of year for couples. To be honest, I thank all of you for being charitable and not calling me a Complete Shit. The bottom line is: that's what I am at the moment, and I hate it. I can barely function, having to think about it all. Midol sounds pretty good at the moment with a shot of Knob Creek to wash it down.

And finally: ROFLMYMONKEYASSO @ brown banana based paste!!!!
Thanks! I always look forward to your visits!
Happiest of New Years to you!

I am new to Blogland and came across yours while exploring.
Are you sure we weren't in some time warp spending the same day together at different points in time?
Except for you receiving a few gifts, my holiday was pretty much the same. It bit. I had no tree, no lights, no gifts, no visitors, no food, no calls...I don't know what I did to get on Santa's bad side, but I will try to be good next year.
Just me, in my room, a fifth of Ketel One and some oj...before I knew it, that day and several following it were over...whew, was I relieved!
Ebenezer wasn't all wrong...bah humbug!
Time to toast a new year and make it a better one!

Nice to meet you.

heartfelt You are Most Welcome Here! I'm glad we found one another. Our stories do seem to parallel each other. I'm glad that day is over for both of us, and I hope things will continue to brighten for both of us in this new year.
Let's see what the warp and weft will weave this time.....
