I Hate My Sister

So I got fored and decied to drive to Greensburg at 3 in the morning Sunday to visit freinds. Well , I was about to come home and I realized that what kind of son would I be if i didnt stop in and say hello. So I walked is and my mother offfered me a cup of coffee and somethin gto dunk into it. And so we start chit chatin over our coffee and I realized those slippers I make I want to bring in and show her becasue she would like them. So I run out and get then and put them on to show here. She she giggled and said they were adorable. So then I found out my sister is home for the weekend from college* She's home EVERY weekend* and she come out and asked what we were talking about. I showed her the object of disuscion "Arent they cute?", I asked. She looks down at them and then back up to me and smiled then said "No, not really." Then went back to bed...She hates anythign homemade because according to her it doesnt have any thought to it...not like when you can go out and buy something for someone instead...

I think I am goin gto knit her something so ugly for Christmas...If I get her anythign at all that is...

Hmph.. your sister doesnt understand.. it takes alot more thought into knitting something up for someone than going out and buying it.. But right on.. i love making ugly things for christmas seeing my family's face when they get a sweater or scarf that is just completely tacky is hilarious.. but they do wear it for the christmas season.. i say make that breakfast bag for her.. the one with the egg and bacon on it *lol*

The Overalls of Shame! If you want the pattern I'll pop it in the mail for ya!

I HATE bitchy sisters who place more value (thoughfuless or monetary) on store bought gifts rather than those made by a loving and creative person. I should know...I have one.

that's awful! so sorry to hear that. yes, make her something incredibly ugly. and make other people absolutely beautiful things. that should make her ugly gift uglier. and make it something she has to wear. and take lots of pictures. :) becuase it would be so rude not to wear a "lovely" handmade gift. and of course, post the pictures! hahahahahaha.

I'm more the kill her with kindness. You make her something absolutely fucking gorgeous...right? everyone gasps as she unwraps. You say, "oh my god, I'm so sorry!!!! I accidentally put this THOUGHTLESS hand made thing in the box by accident. I know you hate handmade... would anyone else want this?"
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I know. I'm evil.
