Stupid, Petty Crap

Living with an elderly person is extremely difficult. My grandmother will be 91 years old in 10 days, and I suppose that when she's gone I'll miss her terribly.  But man, she can be so goddamn stupid and she has a gift for pissing me off. She pisses me off in big ways, like by … Continue reading Stupid, Petty Crap

She’s Crazy and I Don’t Matter

I have discussed elsewhere in this blog what I call my grandmother's "Lynn Trip."  She lived next door to some monkey-lipped old bitch named Lynn for 25 years.  During this time she was convinced that Lynn was not only coming into her house and stealing from her, but that she was also sucking my grandfather's … Continue reading She’s Crazy and I Don’t Matter

Sister Mine, Part II

Yesterday seemed to be all about the goddamned Princess. God damn it! It's enough to wither a soul! First, she sent grandmother a Mother's Day card but she tried to get cute about it - she had it written in a strange hand and with no return address. I knew what it was anyway... immediately... Mother's … Continue reading Sister Mine, Part II

The Paternal Grandparents

I did not meet my father for the first time until I was - I forget how old exactly - 19? 20? Something like that. It wasn't a nice experience. For reasons detailed elsewhere in this blog I ended up back in the town of my birth, where I met my father and his parents … Continue reading The Paternal Grandparents

Sister, Mine

Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Fuck you, too! Fuck you, too! I suppose it is fitting that I should write this entry today, as it is my sister's birthday. I was forced to finally estrange her in July 2015. So, today marks the second time that I haven't had to indulge her in her silly tradition. Every year … Continue reading Sister, Mine

Aunt Francie (aka The Great Pumpkin)

This is another one of the old traumas - dear old Aunt Francie has been dead for 14 years now. (Thank Heavens). I write about her now, because this is, after all a blog of my life experiences, mainly those of the traumatizing variety. This will just further demonstrate how every single important person in my life has … Continue reading Aunt Francie (aka The Great Pumpkin)

The Foster Home

This is another one of the old traumas. I have already written most of it out several months ago in the blog entry titled Mother, but since that particular entry got very long very quick, I have decided to cut and paste the whole bit about the foster home to its own blog entry, here, … Continue reading The Foster Home

The Year of the Dead Rot

This is an old trauma, but I intend to write about ALL of the traumas here.  In part because people keep telling me I should write the story of my life, in part because - who knows, it may be therapeutic? - but mostly because I can. I am writing these as they occur to … Continue reading The Year of the Dead Rot

The Typical Absent Father

    My father was such a non-entity in my life that it almost didn't occur to me to devote a blog entry to him. But then I figured, is he not after all just one more poignant example of what a shit-show my life really is? He certainly is. My grandmother is an enabler. She … Continue reading The Typical Absent Father
