Default The Holidays

So...as we get closer to the holidays and I'm obviously still estranged...

I was asked what my plans for the holidays are from numerous people. Some are trying to adopt me, others are trying to come to me, etc. Whatever. Basically, I don't know what I want to do at this point. Thanksgiving it's looking like a group of us are getting together. Christmas...was my favorite holiday. Dunno what to do about that still yet.

My Dad asked me to come home a few days ago, and that he would buy my flight back. And I said, "I don't think I need a felony on my record by the end of 2014." However this morning, I was like "Okay. You can't just stay away from everyone because of your crackpot mother." Plus, I wanna see my nieces and tickle and play with them. So, I relented. I also wanna see other family that lives in Ohio, so...I'll do it. I can't cut everyone out because of my Mother's transgressions.

I told my Dad I would come home in December but I wasn't sure if for Christmas because I do need to work a holiday. I also stipulated that I would NOT under any circumstances stay at their house.

Now. The reason for the post...I'm not asking if I made the correct decision. Because ultimately, I know it was. I made it for my nieces and myself. Family is important regardless of whatever shitstorm. And I want my nieces to love me and know who I am. My one niece consistently makes comments whenever I talk to her about my lack of presence. I know my Mother and I will see each other...

Does anyone have the perfect outfit that says, "Fuck you - I have my shit together, I look fabulous, and it's your loss for being a crackpot?" I mean, I'll obviously have my fabulous weave back. And I'm not concerned about dealing with her, because I'll just activate my nurse mode and shutdown and if she presses her luck, well, I'll just let my ER nature flare. I'm guessing we'll just ignore one another.

I'm gonna need that.

I say go with something like this...



It's going to be cold enough for the jacket, and why not look like a million bucks? Plus, the outfit will work both with and without the jacket on. It's definitely a look you can pull off, so I think it's worth considering.

Go give 'em hell, Zack, but look sickening while you're at it!

Omg that's totally the look you need (minus those weird plastic hands though). You need a James Spader hat though to pull down over one eyebrow very jauntily.

Glad I could be of some assistance! You'll have to get the outfit together, Zach, and let us see how it turns out.

Oh I will. There's new issues popping up regarding my jaunt home. Namely, my Dad is pushing hard for me to come home over Christmas itself. And I'm all like "Naaaaaa brah." And then I asked him if he even asked crackpot...he avoided and then I asked again, nope. So we haven't been talking

I really wish you had cameras following you around. That is a TV show I'd watch! You have the wildest stories, and I would love to see how you handle just random, everyday situations. Plus, the moments with your family would be television gold...

I honestly am considering having video cameras on standby for my F.U. Tour this December. I mean, I've changed tremendously over the course of the past year. So it'll be interesting.

I'm guessing at the minimum, she'll throw something at my head. Tears will fly. And I'm sure I'll be kicked out of the house at least three times. Or banned prior.
