Thanksgiving Holiday Recap:
The boyfriend and I celebrated Thanksgiving at my Parent's home with three siblings and their offspring. The highlight had to be meeting my twin-brother's NEW girlfriend for the first time. I like her. She's intelligent, pretty, well-mannered, and not crazy from what I can see. I love that she agreed to play the board game of Risk with us last night.
As far as my relationship goes, we are currently in The Power Struggle Stage. Mean Cub is now working full-time, so we are navigating the fair distribution of household duties, negotiating rights and privileges (when can you look at porn), and trying to become better communicators / mood sensors / mind readers.
There is friction in our television viewing habits. I enjoy watching: football, lighthearted sitcoms like Modern Family and The Middle, Revenge, old Will and Grace episodes, nature and science programs. Mean Cub likes some pretty twisted stuff that borders on disturbing: The Young and the Restless, Hostages, Criminal Minds, CSI, and Person of Interest. I fuss that I do not want to watch those DVRed programs in our bedroom right before I go to sleep!
Lately, I find myself wondering if Mean Cub has Asperger's Syndrome. Just yesterday, in a Sonic Drive Thru, the lady on the loud speaker asked if Mean Cub wanted whipped cream and a cherry on his chocolate shake. He did not, so I kindly said -- "No, Thank You." Then the lady asked the same question again to which Mean Cub shouted, "HE SAID NO YOU STUPID BITCH!" I was horrified by his outburst, but then again... "Mean Cub" is not a nickname given out in random. Mental Note: fix the boyfriend's autism.
As far as our furry rugrats are concerned, Boudreaux continues to love his new chicken toy:
