Starting off Sunday fluff

Sun, 09-29-2013 - 10:46am

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

Actually you don't. You know people of all cultures who live in and have been raised in Long Island, which is a different culture than the rest of the US.  You have continually noted that you do not understand that other people/geographical areas have different customs and that different is not wrong.  

Nope, that is not true. I know people from all over and NOT just where I live. Do you honestly think that someone would ONLY know someone from their OWN area? Bawhhhaaaa...you DO know that I travel and meet people, correct? AND...see these people more than once AND speak to them on a regular basis? AND...have family that do NOT live in my area and never CAME from my area and speak to on a regular basis and do see? 

But yes when I'm going to a party in Long Island everyone must bring something.  And many times it is dessert, even if the host is going to provide a dessert (why they do have a dessert, I don't know, since everyone else is going to bring one--but sometimes a host might in the case of a birthday party for instance).  And then there are 6 full desserts (a whole cake, a whole plate or box of cookies, a whole pie etc) for 12 people and most of them get partially (and many times minimally) consumed. Better-no, it's a nice thought, but a lot of wasted food. And poor planning.

Sorry to hear that food gets wasted at parties you have been to. If I got too much food, let it be a dessert or appetizer, side, etc. I ALWAYS send some home with the guests, ALWAYS. I have sent alcohol home with guests too that we wouldn't use after the party. 

Other places I've lived in, do not do it this way.  They very well may bring something for the host, but it's not the same way as it is by you.

That's nice. It sounds like even the parties that you have gone to in MY area and not the same. You always had a problem with your in-laws anyway, it seems from your many posts through the years.

No, lol I don't have problems with my inlaws.  I am only amused by them sometimes because they act and have similar customs as you.  The rest you said is more garbage, so never mind.

I have read things through the years, the block parties and it sure seems you have a problem with them and their friends. Do you see them very often?

What is garbage? The idea to give the leftovers to guests? Bawahhhaaa....

I've never posted about a block party and like I said I don't have problems with my inlaws.  So you maybe you have to make something else up, why don't you try someone else.  I have said they have similar customs to you (and you ridicule anyone who doesn't) and according to you that is the way everyone is supposed to do everything, so what kind of problem would there be?

You've posted many times about your problems with your in-laws.

Oh I am pretty sure, no 100% sure, you have spoken a block party where your in-laws live.

Nope, again, I have said that I know about other customs in other places and ALL of them are STILL not rude enough to not bring something for the hostess.

So that would make you 100% wrong.

Umm you'll have to pull that post up because I've never been to a block party on my own block or in any other state.  And my inlaws have never told me about any block party in their past or present lives.  Really, it's nice that you can't believe other posters that they even know what's going on in their own life.  I don't lie.

You might not lie but you don't have a memory like I do. THAT is something I have NOT forgotten, especially since you basically put down the ENTIRE island with your post. 

You DO realize that not EVERYONE is like your inlaws, right, even if they live close to them?

Well dear, I have not written about a block party.  It is hilarious to me that I have never been to a block party but you KNOW i POSTED about ONE that I WENT to.  Maybe YOU dreamed it LIKE on that DALLAS show, was that BOBBY's wife that DID that?

There is really nothing I can say to that

So, you really want us to believe that you will remember an alleged post, from years ago, on a trivial subject, from a woman you've never met -- but that said woman will forget activites that actually happened in her own life?

That's awesome.
