Um, why don't you answer San Anto QT's QUESTION? My question was rhetorical. Yeah, big word for a typical SA'er, I know.

Touch'e. I just answered what I meant, and so on a lighter note: Is anyone going to the local film festival? It starts today and runs through Saturday all day and evening.

Now, do we have to go back to "negative correlation" again?

Lil'lin (btw...why the apostrophe?), I would still like to know what you mean by "local cultural mentality." That was not addressed in your response.

Our US wedding was a very important event - it had little to do with the actual wedding, and everything to do with bringing together our relatives spread across the globe. It was the last time my dad and 4 of his surviving brothers were all together. As two of them died a few months later. We knew it was likely to be the last time, which is why it was such a big deal to bring everyone together. It was also a reunion for multiple groups of friends who are scattered across the globe - while they could find an excuse otherwise, this worked out great as a reason to get everyone in one place at the same time to catch up after 4-5 years of relying on email.

Alas, my house doesn't fit 120 people, so we had to rent a place.

Nothing's wrong with going to the JP. Nothing is wrong with having a party. Some people like to throw parties, and like to include those they love in the festivities. Everyone's entitled to celebrate in the way they want, and can afford.

Understood, Chaka, which is why I followed up with...

However people choose to celebrate is fine, I just can't fathom the expense.

okay, since you asked me nicely, I'll be more specific.(kidding) I was born and raised here which really does not make me an expert on local cultural mentality but I know what I know, which is not much but here it goes: This city is an old city and in many parts of town, a poor city as well. Some people who have lived here all of their lives tend to be very traditional, never move away to experience college, marry young, have children, and so the cycle continues. As a teacher, I try to tell my students often that there are other options out there such as college, travel, career, artistic expression, etc. Do stick around, just make things better. So sorry if I came across wrong, sometimes I guess I take things alittle too seriously and should lighten up.
