oops, sorry I haven’t responded for a while.
I’ll address the recurring statements, questions, etc.
The brothers are very close, yes. They work together, moved here together, used to spend a lot of time together, and her behaviour, although it wasn’t the greatest, wasn’t so intrusive and obnoxious. It’s been over the last 1.5-2 years that she’s become so…uh, odd. That’s the biggest reason why I hate the whole situation. That’s why my fiancee is so upset, because he doesn’t know what to do. Joe’s his brother. He wants to talk with Joe about it, but doesn’t really know how to bring it up. My opinion isn’t that it’s something Joe doesn’t realize. (Joe is no dummy, but one of those world-class nice guys.) She’s constantly being horrible. (another example of her weirdness) The day before this happened, we bought new living room furniture. Joe helped us move, she wanted to come by after it was done to see it. She came in, started bouncing around on the sofa, and told Joe that she wanted to go buy the exact same set (i am really not making this up, I swear). Joe doesn’t want the same set, nor does he really want, nor think they can afford, new furniture at all. She picked at him until she yelled to a point I could hear (I can’t hear anything quieter than a pretty loud shout) Joe took her to leave (he wanted to go home, she wanted to go to the furniture store), 20 minutes later when we left to go out to dinner, she was still standing in front of my apartment building yelling at him.
[sub](for what it’s worth, they didn’t get the furniture)[/sub]
So we decide that what he’s doing with her isn’t our business. And Joe is a great guy, he tries to keep everyone happy despite the fact he spends WAY too much time apologizing for her. Jealousy is one thing, insanity is another. I don’t think there’s really anything to be that jealous of. We’re all about the same age, level of looks, financial status, intelligence level, etc etc etc. I’m jealous of the fact she can wear red and I can’t. Maybe I ought to act like a freak. (If you can’t beat 'em…)
I just can’t deal with her. And won’t.
Tenar, Zappo- thank you thank you. I do believe he’s happy for me as well. Being widowed so young has always been a subject people avoid like the plaque around me. There’s a lot of us out there.
Deb2World - if you wanna hear about the wedding, i’ll send you an email. I could reach max bandwidth yapping about it. Thanks for asking!! I adore yapping about it. Lavender is the color, including my wedding dress. (screw tradition)

Smashed Ice Cream:
1 oz. Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 ox creme de menthe
1 cup Breyer French Vanilla (it HAS to be Breyers)
1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate liquoer
Smash the Baileys and creme de menthe into ice cream. Drizzle Godiva on top, liberally spread whipped cream. Eat. Repeat as necessary. Tastes like Andes’ candies.
Cazzle - hehehhhhah ha ha ha ha!! I needed that, thank you!

Shagnasty, Eve, she could be the poster girl. ::::sigh:::
Everyone else - thanks for the nice karma. I felt pretty good this morning, despite the hassles. Look for updates tonight, the brothers are going to go golfing[sub]provided it ever stops raining, which it isn’t likely to do in Oregon until about April[/sub] so I’m sure the subject will come up.
ugh. I’m going to search websites for companies that don’t mind shipping live humans to remote islands against their will now.
