Overnight Open Thread. (genghis)

”Economy crashes, debutante-type parties, Bar Mitsvahs hardest hit.”

(not to make fun of any particular coming-of-age ceremonies, but boo-fucking-hoo.)

Count on CNN to bring the hard-breaking news.

”DALLAS, Texas (CNN) -- Jasmine Rocha learned a valuable budgetary lesson when planning her quinceañera, the 15th birthday celebration that represents a rite of passage from childhood to womanhood for Latinas.”

“"It was very hard because sometimes the stuff that I wanted, it wasn't able to come through," said the teen from Dallas, Texas.”

“Jasmine's mother, Grace Grimaldo, sometimes has a tough time even paying the family's phone bill, but balked at the suggestion that her daughter's quinceañera was not a financial necessity.”


I have fond memories of my coming-of-age ceremony when I turned 16. It was a fairly simple affair which consisted of my mom saying “get a fucking job.” A tear just rolled down my face as I wrote that. Good times those were.
