I am so tired but do not want to go to bed.

There was relatively no drama today until I was alone with my mom. She didn't start any shit with my dad or his girlfriend, but damn, she was awful to me today. My mom was totally pleasant on the way there, but I guess not being able to have her cigarettes got to her, because she went into straight-up bitch mode. She screamed at me for obeying the speed limit and not running over animals, and because I was so stressed by the task of driving for an hour and a half, I screamed right back. She also basically called me a man-hating, sexist bigot because I am only attracted to girls. I did totally fine at driving, and yet she would not stop nagging me. Eventually, she told me to pull over and let her drive, and I said, "You know what? NO." This shocked her into silence.

But yeah, we were eating lunch by ourselves after my dad and his girlfriend took my sister to buy a toy so that she'd stop whining. My mom mentioned one of my guy friends, and the following conversation ensued:

Mom: Is he gay?
Me: No, he's the straightest guy ever, actually. He's just very pro-gay.
Me: He knows my preference.
Me: What? Umm, he's a nice GUY. As in, NOT A GIRL.
Mom: That is SO SEXIST!
Me: Ahaha, wait, what?
Mom: You would be rejecting him just because he's not a girl.
Me: That's because I am only attracted to girls. I cannot force myself to like guys. It does not work that way. That's like saying every straight girl I'm attracted to is a homophobe for only liking guys.
Mom: ...Oh. I feel so stupid now.

AND SHE SHOULD! We've been over this so many times. On a scale of heterosexual to French Class Girl, I'm a super-mega-ultra rainbow, which is pretty damn gay. See?

I guess I can't complain about my mom completely, though. My Wacom tablet broke, and the only one in Best Buy was out of my price range, so she agreed to pay a little of it. I cannot live without my tablet. I am always, always, always doing digital art.

FCG actually has a decent music taste. This blows my mind. How is that possible? She's supposed to be horrible at everything. What the hell, FCG? Why don't you listen to Miley Cyrus or something!?

Do you know what else is yellow?

FCG's hair. Does that make yellow extra gay?

Haha. That is a lovely diagram.

Ohman. My tablet broke ages ago, and I still don't have a new one. :[

It put up with years of me and did it's job quite nicely... But now it's gone. I want a new one but... This whole saving-up-every-cent business is kind of leaving me without a life, or a tablet...

Sorry about your mom. I can't stand when people nag me while I'm driving. If someone is being pissy about my driving ability, it just makes my driving that much worse. I would have had to pull over and put some loud music on or something.

I had my previous tablet for

I had my previous tablet for 2 or 3 years. It worked great until this summer, when the cord finally started wearing out, and eventually the whole thing just quit.

I know, right? And the sad part is, it's not like my mom could do any better. She constantly texts and runs all over the road.

lol...on that note...

my uncle once asked me why i was gay and said "... maybe you just haven't found the right girl...?" i replied "and maybe you just haven't found the right guy...?" "ok...i see what you mean...and i thought i did in college but no...." long story short, my uncle accidently came out as bi when he's raggin' on me for bein' gay! lol!!!

Haha! My mom did something

Haha! My mom did something similar once the very, very first time I ever told her. "I used to experiment with girls back in high school, but I still married a man!"

Haha, yeah, it's pretty

Haha, yeah, it's pretty great! And I guess I could say that if she asks again, but I'm like, literally 100% gay. :p

I loved that scale. And I liked how you handled your Mum's "sexist" comment.
