First of all.. Understand, everyone, that I have been up since about 4am, been at work from 5am to 3pm, been dragged out to go last last last minute shopping and stuff with The Mom right after getting home, and am just now finally in my room, about to crash for a few hours. So I apologize way in advance if nothing in this entry makes any bit of sense.irana
seme? I.. I could kiss
Sadiki, Ayo, and Halima would like for you to know that.. Well, when they are finally done snickering
, they'll tell you.
3 of my aunts.. Are here.. They got settled in just a few moments ago
The two who Mom has undertaken as her mission to push out of their comfort zones..? Oh, have they been shoved
See, some of you guys know about the commission Mom had Irana do of 3 of our characters. With nary a stitch of clothing between them. Well, okay, Halima is wearing.. something. Not much, but it's really just so she doesn't um.. catch cold *halo*.
Mom specifically had the three of them done as.. tasteful nudes. Very tasteful. No genitalia showing. And they have been placed above the fireplace in the living room in all their glory. Mom loves
Well, Aunt B saw the trio of pictures first. And her facial expression(s) had me biting my tongue. I had to bite my tongue, mind you, as I'd had no sleep and my mental filters were thisclose to nonexistent.
But, what made my day, was Aunt B
requesting that Mom take those pictures down. Now.
And Mom looking at her, flat out refusing, 'innocently' asking "Why? The human body is beautiful. *headtilt* Do you have a problem with the human body?"
Aunt B expressed her displeasure, Aunt F seemed uncomfortable, Mom went on her little 'rant' about the naked body being nothing to be ashamed of, and Aunt D? The Aunt I adore.. Pipes up with "Please; that's hot
!" She likes the pictures too ^_^.
I offered to make tiny loincloths out of felt to tape to the glass covering the pictures. Mom said to do no such thing. Aunt B and Aunt F were not amused. Aunt D, though, was. I think she's still
Aunt D is the one whom I was referring to in the last post when giving 'warning' that she might er.. pinch those daring enough to walk around in figleaves and smiles.
I took the time to give further 'warning' to Aunts B and F that as this party has a costume 'theme', and that Mom had declared she wished to see thongs and g-strings and corsets and the like (to the exclamations of displeasure and disbelief from two of my aunts and the exclamations of "Oh! I can't wait!" from the other), well..
LET'S JUST KEEP IT 'TASTEFUL' AND 'RESPECTFUL' AT LEAST
EVERYONE. PLEASE (think of my sanity? Please?)?! >_< NO BITCHES AND HOES ALLOWED - PIMPS THOUGH ARE ACCEPTED AND ENCOURAGED. AND ALL DRUNKEN NAKED DEBAUCHERY STAYS. DOWN. STAIRS.
I will say this though. In all my 30-something years being on this planet and subject to my Aunts' complete and utter disapproval.. Tonight was the first time that I didn't feel like a fumbling, ungainly, ugly, corrupted, never-will-be-good-enough duckling (even though they only say what they say to/about me and do what they do to me because they love me and want nothing but the best for me) amongst them.
I still have these knots in my stomach, though, because I know that that was only Round 1. And I didn't hang out up there any longer than I had to tonight.
I'm expected to be in a car with them Monday taking them to visit with a few kinfolk. And I can tell now, it's going to be a long ride. Aunt B has already been giving me the Look of Disapproval(tm) and her patented Look of Just Wait til I Have Time to Talk to You(tm) from since they first got here.
I just have to endure til Wednesday. I just have to endure til Wednesday. I just have to endure til Wednesday.
Anyway. Just wanted to ramble. *snickergiggle*
Naptime for me. Those of you darlings who wish to be here tomorrow? I should be up and moving around 10am-ish. If you are coming, before you are on your way just give me a call or a quick email letting me know when to expect ya.
