Later this month my sister has her Bridal Shower. I've never been to one before, so what do people do at these things? I know they play games and stuff, but what kinds? Also, am I going to be MEGA awkward or embarrassed during any of these games?!?! lol. Seriously?

My nephew's girlfriend is coming to the shower, too. I don't really get why, though. I mean, I don't think my sister knows her all that much, but I guess she wants her to feel like she's a part of the family or something. They've been dating for almost 3 years now, so I guess.

I don't have a problem with it, I just find it kind of...odd. But I guess it could be a good thing, since most of the people at the shower are bound to be around 30 + at least this way there will be someone around my age (she's 2 years younger than me).

So, anybody know what goes on at these things?

I'm off to make some KD.

At my cousin's bridal shower

At my cousin's bridal shower they made man-parts outta playdoh. Er...

That was the only awkward/weird thing though. Everything else was alright, but then again it's up to whoever's throwing the shower- depending on how kooky they are, right?

I hope we don't have to do that. I want no part of making man parts, touching man parts, or seeing man parts. Just no. lol.

my sister

is also going to get married, probably next year. I've never been to a bridal shower either... but could be fun? maybe?

Hopefully it will be fun

I hope they all get drunk, so I can be more myself. Though I'm sure they'll try to get me drunk, too. My sister (the one that's getting married) has this thing for wanting me to drink...even though I'm not a drinker. I don't know what it is! lol.

bridal shower, eh? of. i guess. lol. I am kinda pissed, chicago won! my buddies from the shop showed up to the manager's going away party in full blown hawks gear drunk as was awesome! lol.

at least she will be around? your age? lol.

Then you don't know me! lol. It's going to be awkward as hell for me. Most likely, anyways. I don't feel like I can let loose or truly be myself around my sisters most of the time. Eh...but maybe this time I will.

Being in the closet doesn't help any of this. lol.

no, that wouldn't help...

if it makes you feel any better, w/ my sisters wedding coming up, i'll probably have one too many, and someone will give me the whole 'ur next thing' and i will say something stupid. lol.

but maybe you could be. that would be cool. or just lie, and give gag gifts like penis pasta, a ball and chain, edible underwear. that sort of thing. lol

It doesn't make me feel better...

because we should both be out by now. Why aren't we?! lol. I feel bad or maybe just embarrassed when the, like, 13 year olds are out of the closet and I'm stuck in mine. lol.

Though, I might inadvertently say something one of these days that will tell them that I'm gay. I've gotten close to that happening a few times.

And I've never heard of penis pasta. It sounds scary. jk, lol. My other sister said she's getting gag gifts, and I can ONLY imagine what they will be. lol.

it is kinda weird being our age and not being out, but @ the same time, its understandable too. i mean, for me, i have soooo much internalized homophobia anyway, and a few years back, coming out probably would have meant getting shot, soo yea....

fortunately i wont have to worry about that anymore?

i hgave a feeling it will come out soon though. like, @ the wedding, when im drunk. and at least im out to a few friends now, which is more than i could have said two years ago. lol

oh, and go look for the pasta...they sell that, and all kinds of good gag gifts @ spencers (found in most good malls in the US and CA)

It's definitely understandable...if you're surrounded by a bunch of homophobes and you ate all that up yourself to the point that you believed in it. Hell, I didn't really have any of that in my life and I'm still afraid of coming out...for mostly different reasons, though, I guess.

I hope it all goes well for you if you do come drunken moment of honesty or otherwise. lol. I'm too afraid to come out and say it. The only way I see me coming out would be by a similar thing or if someone asks me then maybe I'll just go own up to it. I've never had anyone ask me and I detest lying about things important to me, so I would most likely tell the truth.

No Spencer's where I live :( There was one where I used to live, but even that one moved before we left.

I'm so tired I don't really know if this makes any sense...hopefully it does. lol.
