    I'm missing my volleyball banquet this weekend, one of the social events I look forward to all year, because our nephew's baptism is the same day and Lou is the godfather. It's his nephew, but we've been together so long I'm referred to as an uncle.

    Personally, I think the whole thing is a sham. He's being baptized Catholic and Rob & Deb haven't been to church since they got married. Lou got a gay priest to give him a letter or reference or whatever.

    Lou takes pics of the league and makes trading cards to give out at the banquet. He has them finished and I already told him not to print mine, since I saw the pics he was going to use and I hated them. So he made them anyway and gave them to me. Now he's all pissy because I don't like them.

    What's really bothering me is that he hasn't even said he's sorry I'm missing the banquet since he refuses to take a chance on us not getting to his brother's on time for the baptism (it's a 4.5 hour drive).

    I just needed to vent.

    I'm allowed one every now and then. It says so in the gay guidebook.

    He's right. It says so in the small print on page 6!

    Tim... I've rarely heard you in this form... but we all have times when we have issues, so you are welcome to vent.

    Sounds like you are just irritated at the situation in general. You may not like the pictures he took, but at least he took them, I'd suggest you just deal with that part and be glad he took the time and effort to do it.

    As far as the baptism, can't Lou go and you attend your banquet? You can always do something nice for his (your) nephew... and a special wish. I can understand why your partner would want to go to the event, but is it a necessity that you be there as well?

    Based on the great video you made for us last Christmas with your home and decorations, I'm sure you could create something fantastic for your nephew and your Inlaws would appreciate it. I wouldn't think you'd have to be there.

    My volleyball banquet is also this weekend. My partner and I are going together (he plays competitive and I play recreation). I wouldn't say I look forward to it as much as you do Tim, but I must admit I would not miss it for a baptism. I have never gone to one of my partner's nephews or nieces baptisms (he has 10), and he has never pressured me to. I am not religious so I would feel somewhat uncomfortable.

    I don't blame you for being upset about the pictures. If your partner knows you don't like the pictures then I personally think he shouldn't use them.

    You have my sympathies in having to drive 4.5 hours to a baptism! I hate any drive over 2 hours, I get restless.
