So I'm at my aunt's birthday party yesterday.

Aunt (different one, not the birthday aunt): I've got a homepage for my practice now.

Me: Cool. How many hits do you get?

Aunt: Around a 100 a week.

Me: Cool. I've got a blog about B movies from the Philippines. The Stockholm Film Festival discovered it recently. They've sent me invites to their press meetings. I can get free passes if I want.

Aunt: [blank stare]

Me: It's fun to get discovered by a big festival like that. Of course, it's all just for fun, but still.

Aunt: [blank stare]

Me: Ehh, you know I'm the only one who does a blog about this. In the world.

Aunt: You could go to Stockholm. Stockholm is nice.

Me: Eh, yeah sure, but that's not the point, it was just fun to get the invite.

Aunt: [blank stare]

What is it with families??? o_O
They just don't get your hobbies or anything. Unless you tell them about a new job or that you're getting a baby they're just not interested. [blank stare]. Haha. o_O


  1. Congratulations on the invitation.
    Go! Go! Go! What are you waiting for?

    (So your aunt looks like an ostrich, eh?)

  2. Thanks, Zoink. We'll see.

    An ostrich? Oh, I see what you mean. But no, that is an actual photo of my aunt from yesterday.

  3. Family's don't get shit. LOL
    Let us know if you go to Stockholm... We'll take you out... :)


  4. Thanks, Magnus. I appreciate that and I'm sure we'd have a fun time. After all you're never secretive about how going out with you would be like:

    I would have been hanging off the shelves, with my fucking knob out screaming Whohooo ride the lizard baby... whilst the others danced ignorantly... :)
