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.
Mom: OH, WHAT IF HE EVER LIKED YOU?
Me: He knows my preference.
Mom: BUT HE'S SO NICE! WHY WOULDN'T YOU DATE HIM?
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!?
