Yesterday was my mom’s birthday party and we all got together with friends of the family: too bad one of my brothers couldn’t make it because he lives in the US and that shit is far away. We went bowling (where I sucked incredibly bad. I am officially the world’s worst bowler: I got like 29 points in an entire game……) and we had chinese food in a pretty chinese restaurant where they also catered weddings so it was really big and quite beautiful, if you look past the kitsch. I especially loved the trippy gold wallpaper with depictions of ye olde times in china. It looked like a chinese version of where’s waldo, so I immediately called the wallpaper the “where’s wong” wallpaper.
Btw I don’t want to offend anyone, this is just an example of the kind of humor you get when you have a family gettogether in my family: really retarded and silly.
I got to spend some time with my brother and his lovely girlfriend. My brother is very dear to me, so I was thrilled to be able to spend some time getting to know his girlfriend, she really is a beautiful and sweet girl that is going to make my brother very happy.
My mom was having the time of her life: she’s starting up her life on her own as a newly single woman and she seemed to be loving her freedom. There was a grandma in the bowling alley who was having her 60th birthday and they announced it through the speakers, so we got over to the counter and asked for an announcement for my mom’s 61st to top the other woman, while my mom only turned 58, which obviously sparked hilarity amongst the guests. Thank god my mom is accustomed to my sense of humor so she found it hilarious as well.
And of course there were familymembers with even worse jokes than mine so I got out of it with my dignity unscathed.
It was a fine day! And a very nice way to end my schoolbreak, since tomorrow my classes start again. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Btw this is what I wore yesterday :D I love how this wall seems to be made for this dress in terms of chaoticness and colors.
