My mom. She's dating.


I get a call today from my mom, not only telling me that she's received the latest payment for my artwork, but that she wants to have dinner with me. She wants me to MEET SOMEONE SHE'S BEEN DATING.

My gosh. I knew it was going to happen eventually, I mean, my dad is already re-married, but my mom?

My cult following, stuffy, highly embarrassing, non-supportive mom? She actually found someone who hasn't 1) Run away screaming because she's tried to convert them into an Independent Fundamental Baptist, or 2) Run away screaming because she's so conservative.

WOW. What shocks me the most is the fact that music wise, travel wise, lifestyle wise, EVERYTHING wise, they have nothing in common. NOTHING.

I spent a whole awkward dinner talking about music while my mom gave Josh, her "boyfriend" dirty looks for talking about "Satan" music in front of me. WTF?!

He's ok I guess, her boyfriend. Early to mid 30's, born in India, schooled in London, college in New Jersey. Likes Radiohead, U2, Nickleback, Daughtry, the latter two I don't really like.

He's pretty stable too I guess... He's got a Master's degree in Computer Science...

This is just so disturbing. My mom. With a guy that listens to something that isn't classical christian music. He even has an Indian accent. Not that I have anything against Indians, I mean, I just never thought my mom would go for someone like that. He's just so eager. So ready to buy my approval and give me his CD's. No Lie. He told me I could have any of his CD collection that I wanted. I took some CD'S but I plan on returning them as soon as I put them on my iTunes account :P I don't want to be a creeper by taking his CD's even though he said I could have them.

UGH. The timing is just so awful. School starts Monday, and with all this NEW, I don't know if I can handle all of it. I know, it's just a guy, but I don't want him to hurt my mom, or my two younger sisters. I don't want them to get too attached only to watch him leave. Especially Stephanie, she's only 5. I don't know if she could handle him leaving. Young kids need stability.

Oh yeah, did I mention HE MOVED HERE?! Yeah, he's from like, LA or something. I don't know... WHY WOULD A GUY MOVE FROM LA TO EAST FRIGGIN TEXAS?! For my mom no less! He doesn't even attend church(which is a must for my mom)! He likes old school rock and Micheal Jackson!


I don't know. I don't really know at all.


  1. Maybe it's a sign of the apocalypse. I'm still in a bit of shock over the fact that he doesn't go to church, and you're mom likes him.

    He's so...not her :O

  2. Well miss Spazz. You are in quite a predicament. On one hand, if you get attached to him and begin to like him and he's gone, then well, he's gone. And if you don't like him, then it could upset the already unbalanced relationship with your mom. Sounds like a tough situation.

  3. Oh whoa, they really do seem to be quite different! Especially involving religion, since it seems like that's a pretty important factor. Whoa, I can't believe he moved all the from LA O: Hmmm, he seems nice enough, but I guess we'll see how things go....

    Oh wow, the word verification is "warned". Is that a "you have been warned"? Maybe it's a sign D:
