some good news and some thoughts....
woo hoo! Gryllus gave me a +1 on my yerf app and had some very kind things to say *grin*..so that means i now have a +3! id have to get a -2 and a -1 from the next two reviewers to not be accepted *crosses claws*

ive been thinking..i watched "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" today and...i realized..i really wish i had some sort of cultural association. Tavis has his Italian family with their huge christmas eve fish dinners *which are good except for the octopi*. he also has his Irish family. Tiffany has her Chinese culture..what do i have? nothing. we have no culture. im just a flat out mutt with no identification. im german, cherokee, and have lots of european crap..but..nothing to identify with. and what the hell IS the american culture anyway? its just a mishmash of everything. im not quite sure i like it. i dont like american food. its cheap, and its all i can afford most of the time..but id much rather have sushi, or pasta..
the only custom my family has is we have a dish of black olives at every party that my dad and i gorge ourselves on. and then of course theres the ritual fight at every get together. *sigh*
maybe i can make up my own culture...or adopt Tavis'. i like what he has. hes lucky.

Current Mood: jealous jealous

I know what you mean. Chris' family is all italian. His mother and grandmother were FROM Italy. They have to eat together every night (when Chris is home from school) and I just stick out like a sore thumb when I'm there. I'm not used to it, my family is so different from theirs and I get very envious attimes. They have a tight knit family and my family is just like..... whatever. You know? geh, it sucks.

I kinda know what you mean. I'm a mix of four or more things, but I mostly think of myself of irish and italian. the funny thing is, we have no italian traditions. My grandma was from Italy. Eh the only one that constitutes as a tradition is a big ol' get together christmas eve with the italian side of the family... but i've only been to that twice and everyone is familiar with each other and i'm sitting there with two of my cousins and a couple other little kids who i dont even know how we're related. I don't know more than like 4 people there, i dont know how im related to anyone but those four, and its like a group of strangers just all at the same house. It's like part of my family has the tradition, while im just watching. Kinda makes me sad. Eh... we should start our own traditions and make up our own culture!

You want family traditions... you can have mine... I'm Italian, Polish, Russian, and Dutch. The italian and dutch is from my mom, and the rest is from my dad. My mom was raised roman catholic and converted to marry my dad (jewish). So, Things can get a bit confusing. Plus Mas is half Italian. So I get different traditions from both sides. His family does the christmas eve (feast of the 7 fishes) deal. And my family has the fun(?) traditions of Passover and Rosh hashana and oh boy, yom kippor (bleh, I hate fasting). Lets just say, our wedding was interesting. Let's here it for my big fat italian jewish wedding.... oi!

So, take my cultural traditions... please!
