Here we go again...
Is it really that difficult to say "Lizzie"? I mean, I did tell Vicki she could call me "Elizabeth." Probably half the people I know call me "Elizabeth." I would be 100-percent fine with Vicki calling me "Elizabeth." I don't know what else to do at this point besides laugh that my name has stumped Vicki so much and I am now being referred to in terms of calling your pet pup "Lizzie!" Surely we can find more pertinent things to befuddle ourselves with.
When I first arrived at the hoedown, Tamra gave me advice on how to deal with Vicki. I don't think that Tamra was trying to instigate drama here. Tamra has been very nice to me since the ugly sweater party, and I think she was trying to help out the new girl. You have to understand that I am just trying to figure out these women and how to manage with this new group.
Vicki arrived at the hoedown and pretended like she never met me before. I knew she did it on purpose. When I told Danielle about it, I decided to just have fun with Miss Vicki. She obviously wants to play little girl games...so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! And as I said to Danielle, "Get on and enjoy the ride." That is how I feel about Vicki right now. It's a little bit like a roller coaster, why not just have fun with it? I have a sense of humor, so let's go. Vicki does in fact apologize for calling me "Izzie" and tells me that people call her "Icky Vicky." (Why a woman that has been called names in the past and didn't like it would call another woman names is beyond me.) However, I accepted her apology and was truly happy to be starting over again.
I think it was very sweet of Vicki to apologize and I accept her apology. I 100-percent believe in forgiveness and I think it takes a lot to admit when you are out of line and rude. When Vicki offered me a tequila shot because I'm Mexican, well I just went along with it. I know she knows better. She made a big deal at the Javier's dinner saying I look ethnic and I explained my heritage. I don't know if she wants a fight or just be silly...but I was going to have fun and I don't mind being called Mexican -- I think Mexican/Latina women are beautiful!
