      Lovely plumage, eh?

  2. So far, a proto-typical family gathering at a homestead for a holiday (mass consumption event) get together. So far, everything seems… Perfectly normal.

      Let’s see how it all shakes out. 😉

  3. Well, not openly hostile, it seems, but then again, maybe I’m misreading the scene. Having gone through the “meet the parents” thing before, I can certainly understand Emrys’ trepidation, especially since he’s still young, but I think he’ll do okay. Remains to be seen if Katie decides to be unnecessarily difficult, but I’m not holding out much hope that she won’t try to sabotage things for her sister, if only because she seems to hold grudges. Granted, Beth doesn’t help much, but, from my perspective at least, she is trying to keep her younger sister from making the same mistakes as she did, even if she goes about it the wrong way.
    Sorry to hear about your convention woes, Eric. Hopefully things will look up in the future, but look at it this way, it gives you a little less stress for another year not having to prepare for it. 🙂

      A somewhat typical family gathering. Not horrible, but still with the usual quirks and dysfunctional flare-ups.
      I’ll keep a look out for other conventions. Maybe something up in Seattle will pop up.

  4. So glad this kind of crap was never a thing in my family.
    All branches and septs mostly stay happily remote from each other with occasional random contacts…
    …except when one of them wants me to “fix” something for them……:(

      That’s always the case. You never hear from relatives until they want something.
