A Little Bit About Me

Posted: December 26, 2010 in Misc

If you’ve been reading my blog you probably know more about my husband and his ex-wife and his kids than you do about me. I guess that’s what happens when I spend all my time bitching :-). You’ve probably figured out that I have some serious anger issues when it comes to things that have been going on lately, but do you really know me?

Well, for obvious reasons I can’t tell you exactly who I am but I can tell you a few things about myself. I was born and raised in Chicago. I love my city. My family has been here for many generations, back in the day when Marshall Field decided to be the first to rebuild after the great Chicago Fire. We go way back in this city. My grandmother actually cried when Macy’s bought out Marshall Fields. She still shops there, but it’s just not the same.

I remember, when I was a little girl, going to Marshall Fields every Sunday before going to a family event. We had great family dinners and a trip to Marshall Fields always came before our meeting. The entire store seemed to know my grandmother. She was friends with everyone. Nowadays it’s not the same. She still knows people there, but it’s not like it used to be.

I love my family. We are a very close-knit group. I grew up with strong family values. Family comes before everything. Honor and loyalty are very important. I can honestly say my family members would die for me, and I would die for them. That is how deep our bonds run.

My grandpa just turned 94. I love him dearly. He and my grandmother have always been the glue that holds the family together. For 94 he still has spunk and we always joke around that he’s too stubborn and mean to go anywhere anytime soon. He’s not really mean. This man waited in line for 6 hours back in the 80s to get me a Cabbage Patch Doll. He really is a sweetie underneath his “tough guy” act but no one outside of our immediate family knows that. Don’t get me wrong. Grandpa can and will fuck you up if you screw something up, but he is also one of the sweetest, most generous most caring people I have ever met.

I have three wonderful children and two great step-children. I love them all dearly. I also have a “mama bear” nature, which means if you fuck with one of my kids I am going to do some serious shit to your life. The funny thing is, my husband’s ex-wife knows exactly who and what I am and she was still stupid enough to try and fuck me over and treat her kids like shit. What a dumb ass.

My loyalty isn’t just to my family. It’s to my friends too. I am probably one of the most loyal people you’ll ever meet. If I trust you and like you, there isn’t anything I won’t do for you. Break that trust just once though, and it’s over. You will immediately go to my shit list and that ain’t a good place to be. I get that from my grandfather. I’m just like him in that way. Now that I think about it, Grandma is like that too.

Now, unlike most of my family, things beyond our immediate sphere of influence actually bother me. I hate injustice. I don’t know what my problem is, but when I see “weaker” people being treated like shit and picked on it really pisses me off. I think the world needs to do some changing. Men and women everywhere need to “grow a pair” and start sticking up for what’s right. Those stories you hear about people getting robbed or mugged and no one doing a thing about it? It’s sick. You try to mug or rape someone in front of me and I will shoot your ass. You pick on someone weaker than you and I am going to give you an earful. If more people were like that, the world would be a better place.

So what’s the purpose of my blog? Other than being a healthy way to vent without actually doing physical or financial damage to the people I hate, it’s a way to get the word out. What word? The word that we need to do something about the wrongs in this world. Yes, the gene pool is going to shit. That being said, there are still those of us who are good people. We can do something about it. Let’s do it. This blog isn’t just about me. It’s about all of you who feel the way I do. So tell me about the asshats you have to deal with and the bullshit you stand up against.
