An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. ~Bill Vaughn~

I am definitely a pessimist but I still like the thought of starting a fresh new year every January 1st.

Homage of the Week

I am paying homage to Andy Warhol all week because I adore his art work and I would have given anything to meet him and be his muse.

The holidays are always a stressful time for me. Its not that I hate my family but I cant stand being around them for lengthy periods of time. Its a dysfunctional environment and I feel as if I am constantly walking on eggshells, biting my lips desperately trying not to say or do anything that will offend anyone. But all this is done in vain because every year I am left playing peace-keeper to a hostile family bent on acting out their aggressions with anyone that gets in their way.
I think alcohol is what fuels this hostile environment. Which is no big surprise since my mom is an ex-bartender and she is not necessarily the soberest person to be around. Hell my sister and I were even permitted to drink Wine Coolers at 7 and 10 years old. Alcohol has always been part of my life. I don't want to say that my family is a bunch of drunks but whenever a family crisis occurs you can bet your life that Alcohol was involved.
But I digress, I dislike Christmas because in my family, this environment allows people to gather that are guaranteed to clash. During Christmas, someone always ends up having their feelings hurt; it is like an inevitable family tradition that during Christmas there well always be at least one person unhappy.
But alas I am relieved now that Christmas is over and done with. I can now return to the safety of my mundane life not that its any less dysfunctional but there is only so much quality family time I can put up with before ultimately succumbing to a nervous breakdown. How did you guys spend your holidays?

"Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean I'd love to be skinny like that but not with all those flies and death and stuff." ~Mariah Carey~

I can relate to Mariah Carey. Right now I am feeling like a bloated heffer whose had to many vodka tonics.


So this is my first post on my new blog. I have a real dysfunctional life which I'll be elaborating more on later. But as for now, I just want to say hi and welcome.
