TRADITION!!!!!!!! The tamale story.

Lol somebody in I think the Lemonade Stand board started a thread about weird family traditions. I don't know how many PLEBA girls go there, so I brought it over here just bc my reply included a story about tamales:

Lol O my family....we are SO strange.
1.) A few days before Xmas the women of the family (my mom's side) go to my Grandma's house (she lives across the street, lol) and we make tamales. Heheh PLEBA girls may laugh at that. We have an assembly line!

Grandma: Puts chicken in the masa

Mom: Fills it up with everything else (egg, sausage, olive, sometimes other stuff)

Aunt: Closes it up

Other Aunt: Wraps it in paper

Me: Ties it up

I HATE my job. I want a better job in the tamale assembly line! *pout*

2.) Not really traditions, but we say weird things all the time. My brother and I pronounce "giraffe" like "gy-raff-ee" and we quote Homer Simpson and "wayne's world" way too often.

3.)On Xmas Eve my brother and I get to open one present each, then save the rest for Xmas morning. This was so exciting when we were 8 and 7. Now we're 18 and 17. It's losing its magic.

Also we decorate the Xmas tree and listen to Xmas songs. The best ornaments: The penguin with the popsicles, the fuzzy baby seal, the chipmunk on the cookie, and the puppy with the red ribbon. Lol we FIGHT over those EVERY year.

4.)How come I still have to sit at the kid's table at big family dinners!? Rackem frackem.


My new tradition is anything U2-related....compulsively

There have never been "kids' tables" in my family...we all sat together, regardless of age.

Hey, Moner: Do you know how to prepare the tamales???

As you in my house, I get to tie the tamales, but also I have to cut all the vegetables inside the tamale. As you all know: BOOOOOOOORING JOB TO DO!!

The only thing I love about doing tamales is EATING THEM! *yum*

Bono just has such an incredible ability to harness the crowd's energy and feed it straight back to them, resulting in what seems like communal ecstasy.I've never seen anything quite like it. Our Bono is indeed a mighty force. He walks into a room and all the air gets sucked right out. He is completely magnetic. - Shirley Manson, on Bono

Wee hoo! We never had a kids table because I was the only kid on either side of the family for ten years!

But nowadays there's so many little rugrats runnin' around, it drives me NUTS! So now it wouldn't matter if there were a kids table anyway, 'cause I always eat in another room so I don't have to put up with the noise. My family doesn't care 'cause they dont really like me. Funny how things all work out in the end, sometimes.
