Boondock/can't believe
I have been catching tiny shreds of nap amongst the blasting of music and the shrieking of cousins.

Adam just came in.

Y'know how I said he was going to make GF lasagna?

Thing is, we have lasagna every Christmas evening. Have all ten years I've been coming here. Now, my aunt mentioned that some random person was bringing over some food. But I've been talking about the lasagna all goddamn week. And I bought the GF lasagna noodles. And I was talking about it in the car today, even. With interaction from her. I have been very chatty over how happy I am that I still get to have Christmas lasagna with them.

And nowhere in there did she happen to mention that this random interloper would be using both ovens to cook massive amounts of heinous shit I can't eat and that therefore we would not be able to cook lasagna so she didn't buy ricotta or anything anyway.

So I got no lunch, and I get no dinner.

I am holed up in the bedroom. Because if I go out there I AM GOING TO SAY AN UNKIND THING.

AUGH!

I seriously don't understand how people can be THAT INCONSIDERATE TO THEIR GUESTS. I'm sorry, I know they're family, etc., but. AUGH.

I ... Have no idea if this is helpful or not, but is it possible to repurpose the GF lasagna into pasta that can be cooked on the stove? To make a GF sauce, break up the lasagna sheets into smaller bits, and cook it like that? I know it's not proper lasagna, but... Ach. Just ACH!

I don't know if there's stuff on the stovetop, but I sent Adam out to Find A Way, because he's not the one who's been trying not to cry all day; this gets to be his job for now.

That is just so...soo...fucking...argh!!!! I'm sorry this day has been so craptastic for you! :'(

*HUGS* *MORE HUGS* oh, Hell, let's just throw in:

*SHAZZATTACK*

Don't worry about coming home, I will be there when you arrive (so long as you send me the flight info :-)

You are LOVED and MISSED
25th-Dec-2010 11:44 pm (UTC) - Re: *BEEG HUGS*
*snif* Thank you.

Will send you the flight info when I know if it's for Monday or Tuesday; they told Adam Tuesday but e-mailed him an itinerary for Monday, and now they're not answering their line due to inclement weather.

:(
I'm sorry today is being to heinous...
25th-Dec-2010 11:49 pm (UTC)
What the fucking fuck. In you're shoes, I would be so outta there. I know it's family, but damnit, it's family and they should make it possible for you to eat. If $$ for a hotel room would help, let me know.

Really, you should go out and say a whole lot of unkind things. On your way out the door. There must be a Chinese restaurant around that can do gluten-free.

Also allergic to soy. *wry smile*
26th-Dec-2010 12:01 am (UTC)
ugh...that's just not right...I'd seriously think about leaving.

I hope it gets better.

No way out, nowhere to go.

What he said. And I'm not sure they don't need to hear a few unkind things said to them, though perhaps it could wait until you are no longer entrapped in their home.

*hugs*

Jesus.
Fucking.
Christ.

I am so sorry for you. Here, have a cleaver.

I am so so sorry. I wish I could magic you up some delicious GF food and send it to you with my brain.

Thank goodness for cuisines that don't use wheat flour when prepared traditionally! Indian is my standby.

wishes I could do something, anything, for you right now.

There comes a time when you just say no to bloodfam and do your holidays with chosen.

Next year, for me.

LOVE YOU.

I'm sure I can beg, borrow or steal some frequent flyer miles from my more well-to-do friends so that I can come down there and administer the proper beatings.

That's awful!

I hope the day picks up for you and your family!

For our Orphan's Thanksgiving a couple of years back, where my wife and I have many dishes that take up all of our oven space until the last possible moment, someone brought two dishes that would need significant oven time to cook. Her dishes went in after all of ours, and were out for folks to get seconds. She might just have considered asking if there'd be oven availability...

28th-Dec-2010 04:04 am (UTC)
Oven space is always an issue for feasts. I do not think it's reasonable to let anyone 9except maybe the hostess) monopolize it- and the hostess only if s/he IS planning on ensuring everyone gets FED.

For this Xmas, one of the criteria of my menu was what would fit in the oven AND be edible to everyone.
26th-Dec-2010 04:12 am (UTC)
Oh hon. I'm so sorry your family are being douches. You know, if you said an Unkind Thing I don't think anyone, mortal or deity, would blame you for it.
26th-Dec-2010 03:05 pm (UTC)
Seriously, that is completely inconsiderate, and I can't even imagine that someone would have you as guest and then starve you. I know a lot of people seem to think I'm making it up when I say I'm lactose intolerant. Why do people think we'd make up such a thing? Ugh.

As an aside, I made lasagna for dinner last night, we used to always have lasagna for the holidays when I was a kid. Does anything else in lasagna have gluten? I know they sneak it into things sometimes.

Many packaged shredded cheese have flour in to keep the cheese from caking, and some pasta sauces have it.

Sounds like the year to say, after the fact, "We appreciate the gesture, but will not be returning for future holidays." They are being inconsiderate in ways they don't have to be. Every branch of family we have attempted holiday eating with has found ways to actively accomodate Becky's celiac. There is no excuse, and no reason to put up with it. No need to be unkind, but there's no need to spend a ton of money and time to repeat the misadventure in the future.
28th-Dec-2010 04:06 am (UTC)
yep. "I don't want to be a burden, and I could see that it was just too hard to accommodate my dietary needs what with everything else... and i cannot afford to fast for a day or so; it's not healthy."
