I am not amused

I have written here before about my sister. (link) (link) Yup, this is another one of those posts. I'll spare those of you that don't want a glimpse into my family drah-mah...

Today I received an email from my father. It was some rather biased comments, and a forwarded email from my sister. In it, she announces that she found something that "meant a lot to me at the time and still does and would like for him {me} to have a copy of it." I have no idea what this is, and I'm wondering if this is yet another attempt to influence me in some way. *shrug* I guess we'll see if/when it gets here.

Next thing -- she's going to move back to SoCal in late August/early September. A little shock that she's planning that far out. But wait -- there's more. She's engaged. "...he is 29 years old and has a very good job and lives in Illinois. He prints credit cards in Chicago." She, mind you, is 35 years old and lives in Spingsfield, Missouri. So the plan is that my nephew will be going back to see his mother during Christmas and will be able to meet the dude there. Then she plans to move in with the dude in Chicago in February. Then, six months later, a move to SoCal. No word as to when the wedding will be.

Now comes the rather biased comments from me... let me first comment about my sister dating some guy who is 500-some miles away who is young enough to be my younger brother. Oh, wait, she's not dating him -- she's ENGAGED to him! And how does she tell my parents? Through an email, mixed in with other things. And there are other things that are just not ringing right with this whole situation. The pessimist in me wonders just how long this marriage will last, if it ever even occurs. I also wonder what exactly my sister will be doing in Chicago for six months, why they will be moving out to SoCal, and where they will live. Most of all, I wonder what this dude sees in my sister.

Way you live in interesting times my ass!

Is 35-29 really so outrageous an age-span? My parents were farther apart than that; Caran's five years younger than I am, and we're doing okay.

On the other hand, "prints credit cards" seems like an unusual occupation. Let's hope he isn't self-employed.

No, it's not outrageous, and I'm sorry if that was implied. I'm just in a bit of a shock still that she is engaged to someone that is younger than I am. I don't know the guy, and don't know what his maturaty level is, but I'm already a bit concerned if he's to the point of engaged to my sister...

As for the job, ... uhm, yeah, I thought the same. "He's got a good job printing credit cards, but I can't see him for 15-20 years..."
