A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

IT'S MY PARTY


Ex-Hubby turned 60!

We all decided to celebrate his milestone with a dinner party at a swanky restaurant and got a great table in the corner by the windows.

I wanted to document the occasion with a few pictures because, at 60, you never know how much time you have left.

What happened was, after two glasses of wine, I got a little carried away.


Even though I was facing the windows most of the time while taking the pictures, Darling Daughter's husband got bent out of shape that the flash was annoying other diners.

I think it was because grandson Parker seemed a bit freaked out that his Nana had a camera growing out of her face.


In any case, pushy broad that I am, I ignored Son-in-law and took a mere 75 pictures.

And, if anyone sitting near us had a problem with the flash, they didn't say so.

In fact, we were having so much fun they all joined in singing Happy Birthday to Grandpa Wee Wee!

I can see why he's your ex...he and your son-in-law say no, you plow ahead and obnoxiously take 75 photos anyway..not only that but you impose two brats onto these customers at this so-called swanky restaurant..paying customers who prob are not thrilled with the flashes and/or the brats..they prob sang Happy Birthday in hopes it was the end of your dinner/fiasco there!

Hey restaurantpayingpartypooper, I can see why you call yourself a party pooper.

By the way, I was a paying customer too, at a table for bigger parties ... in a corner ... out of the way ...

And just for the record, I, admittedly, was the only brat at the table.

Dear partypooper, I'm sorry that cute babies and nanas with cameras annoy you. Next time you think about going out in PUBLIC you should pop your Prozac and mic a t.v. dinner instead. Better yet maybe you should strand yourself on a deserted island, eat coconuts and make a soccer ball your best friend!

Diana,

I hope you didn't have the party at Nicholas in Middletown.

And it's not just "at 60, you never know how much time you have left." That statment is true at every age.

If he's Grandpa Wee Wee, are you Grandma Poo Poo?

Funny you should ask Menuval,I'm too young (in my mind) to be a grandma ... that's why I'm just a hip Nana whose ex is Grandpa Wee Wee!

I hate going to dinner on a weekend and having kids sitting near me, let alone a flash going off every minute.

if you look in that first picture, it looks like the restaurant is not crowded, so who cares if you took pictures. I say if you can't stand kids then go to another restaurant or stay home.

sorry darling daughter, those babies are not cute..can delude yourself and nana pee-pee all you want and her shamelessly putting them on her blog is -YAWN- just because your mother puts your brats' photos on her blog every other day, doesn't make them less bratty at restaurants or any cuter..hey, sometimes reality sucks darlin'..maybe they'd be cuter if they did take after your father, your mother's ex//granpa weewee or whatever his name is..hopefully, spud was home with a cuter babe while you were all out parading ugly brats at a nice restaurant!

Partypooper,
Every mother thinks that their children are cute. I couldn't care less whether you think they are. If you hate what is written here so much why are you reading it and much less responding to it? I only used Darling and you know who I am so you must read not only the blogs but the columns too. So, deep down it must not be that much of a YAWN for you!

Okay. I had to respond to this one. I personally know these 2 adorable children and they are precious. I am not a blood relative so I have no bias. I will not argue another person's preference for dining away from children. HOWEVER, don't ever write such public ill words to a mother about her children. I'm horrified by the mean tone and hostility here. If you have a problem with Diana's family then please stop reading her blog and columns because they are all in good fun! Take your bad karma elsewhere because we don't need your pollution. You should be ashamed of yourself. I wish you nasty nature heals itself so that you can enjoy a better life.

I'm such a lucky man, I got to celebrate my birthday with a loving family -- three generations at the same table -- nice -- I may be aging, but it sounds like the rest of you just need to get a life. For anyone that may have a problem with the pictures -- just pi$$ off.

Sounds like someone has a personal grudge against you and your innocent grandchildren, Diana. I hope that person gets back two fold what they are dishing out. Shame on you.
