Peach Dresses

The LLS turns 24 this month. I can't believe she is 24, living in SF and happily in a relationship. It's so not her. She's a bit angsty, so it's weird to see her happy.

When we were kids, birthdays were the thing. Mom threw huge parties, there were themes and bouncy rooms and goodie bags. It was the best...until the LLLS (little luscious lesbian sister) found out that she wasn't getting any gifts or attention that day. She'd throw a fit, make a scene and just be herself for a few hours until she got some cake.

However, on her birthday bedecked in her favorite peach colored, ruffly dress, she would shine. Our Dad made her a kitchen set one year (you know, those plastic things with the fake food, only hers was wooden, didn't mold like the other ones did and didn't light up, but it was so cool, we all helped paint it, Mom did the burners). Anyway, Dad is rolling it out onto the backyard grass where LLLS is opening her gifts and she rushes toward her new play set and I do believe coldcocked some wayward kid while screaming "No, it's mine" when they mistakenly got near it We've been telling that story for years because honestly, we love her but, that is the best example of the LLS's personality.

From reading her blog recently, I think she's mellowed slightly. Although if you had seen her at Christmas last year, you'd have thought something different entirely. She's not allowed to play games with the family any more.

Happy Early Birthday LLS - I Love You

You are pure evil. And I have mellowed, I am really comfortable in my life. That's what happens as life goes on. You get older, you grow up, you realize what's important. I maintain that going home to visit family (no matter how old you get), causes some sort of regression spell that brings out the worst in everyone. For more info on this theory, visit
