Tell 'Em How You Feel Thursday

My granny is going to slowly drive me insane. Do you know that woman sat in this house today and did not eat? She slept most of the day and when she got out of the bed and went to eat something. Then she waits for my mom to call her on the phone to see if she wanted something to eat to tell her that her blood sugar was low. Then she asks me to go to the store to get her a I wanted to shake her. I know she had surgery but the more she stays in the bed the more tired she is. You would think she would attempt to at least sit in a chair but that is just asking for too much.

So you know I have been complaining about a job well I applied for a job and was supposed to receive a phone call. I have yet to receive the phone call. I can't call anyone b/c it is fede.ral gover.nment position and I don't know who to contact. Stuff like this drives me insane. Keep me in your prayers.

My cousin who had the ghe.tto wedding last summer is having a baby shower this weekend. What will I be able to tell you guys about the shower?

I really like the crush but he has somethings he needs to work through. While he does this I am in the background. Trying to meet new people but you saw my last post. My friend told me the next time I meet a guy I need to phone a friend. That was hilarious!

Some people make me want to shake them really hard. Maybe if I shake them they will see where they are going wrong. Not being judgmental at all--my pastor told me it is not judging if you are telling the truth. Love him!

I am proud of myself! I have been drinking 64 ounces of water daily. The funny part is if I don't drink water I don't drink anything. I guess that probably means I was walking around dehydrated.

I talked to the youngin the other day and he was telling me how he was supposed to go on a campus visit to Ya.le B School and he couldn't get off work. Well he emailed someone in admissions and when he finished the email he spelled his name incorrectly. That is hilarious. I got an email yesterday and the lady spelled her own name wrong.

That is all!

Ok even though I say I am mean I am pretty nice. I don't like to hurt people's feelings, men included. With that being said I am an equal opportunity phone number giver outer. I also figure if I give you my number that doesn't mean that I have to talk to you unless I want to. You would think that I would have learned my lesson from my past. Well the past two times has truly taught me a lesson or two.

Lesson #1: Just say no!
Lesson #2: Wear makeup so I almost look my age or purchase a t-shirt that says 25 and under need not apply!

Guy #1 was 20 and a bugaboo. I gave him my number b/c he was persistent and he seemed relatively nice. I specifically told him that he could have my number on the condition of not being a bugaboo. I played myself. Dude called me everyday for a week. I received a phone call morning, noon and night. I received texts. I even received a text with a picture of him. Is that how we do now? We send pictures of ourselves now. A hot mess and a half! He finally left me alone when I didn't respond to his bugaboo phone calls.

Guy #2 I met Sunday. I gave him my number. We talked yesterday and he earned his 3 strikes rather quickly. Strikes in order that they occurred. Strike #1 was the fact that he works at a car detailing place. I am happy that he is gainfully employed but he isn't even in management. Strike #2 was the fact that he has a baby on the way. I had just got finished telling him that I was allergic to children and he says he has a baby. I have to tell you the story as it was told to me. He had a long term relationship with his girl and they broke up. They decided they wanted to try and work it out. They got back together and decided it wouldn't work. She went to the doctor and found out she was 5 months pregnant. This was all told to me after I asked so we going around having unprotected sex. It was a yes or no question with an obvious answer that was never answered. Then he says he doesn't want anymore children which is cool with me b/c I am not trying to have any babies with him (even though we know I want children, just not his). Strike #3 was the age. I asked him how old he was and this child tells me 22. What am I going to do with a 22 year old. I have liked someone younger in the past but I knew he wouldn't be settling down anytime so it was all for fun (need to call him to see how he is doing).

With that being said I am not giving my phone number out anymore. I hate the idea of taking a guy's number and deciding to call him but that is what I need to start doing.

I have noticed that I have been anxious lately. The problem with my anxiety is that only two people induce this anxiety--my mother and father. I hate this feeling. I really need a job so they will get off my back. Any suggestions? I have been applying to non-legal jobs and still no response. I just want to leave this place.

Tell 'Em How You Feel Thursday

Can I just say that I really like Crush? Our conversations brighten my day!

Last night I had the worst se.x ever. I think it was a sign to leave the former boo alone. It involved him and one of my friends. I think she was on my mind b/c she asked all her friends to pray for her so she was the last person on my mind before I went to sleep.

When is too soon for a guy to sleep over at your house? I only ask this b/c I was talking with my friend who got married recently about this. She told me that her now husband spent the night at her house within the first month and then he never left. He also told her that he loved her within the first 5 days.

I am so happy for SunFresh and her boo. :-)

I am taking my nephew to the movies this weekend :-)

My dad is giving me his car to drive :-)

Can you tell I love smiley faces?

Yesterday I almost felt myself spiraling into a mild depression. All I wanted to do was cry. I didn't want anyone to say my name or ask me to do anything. I just wanted to be left. Two of my friends listened to me and encouraged me. I am so thankful for my friends. They really don't know how much I appreciate them. Most of my friends are like the sisters I never had. I really hated living as an only child.

It is starting to get hot in Georgia!

I really didn't have much to say but I wanted to say something.

Post 300!!!!!

I probably should have done post 300 months ago but my blogging has fallen off. But the time has come to make that milestone. Post 300 is about The Crush/Cuddle Buddy.

So The Crush and I are also cuddle buddies as of this weekend. We decided to get together since I would be near him. He is such the perfect gentleman which made me crush on him even harder. Our get together was completely G-rated. We went to get some food and took it back to his house. We sat at the table and ate. He then gave me a tour of his house. He did a good job with picking his place--loved it. He definitely needs a woman's touch to add something to it but other than that it was pretty nice. After the tour we sat on the couch and watched a movie. During the movie we cuddled up on the couch. He rubbed my back and feet and held my hand. It was so cute! Swoon! We laughed and talked and I learned a little more about him.

With this interaction I realized that I am pretty bad at picking men. I have never "dated" a gentleman. So I am hoping that this continues at a nice, slow and easy pace.

The Day that Most of Working America Hates

Today is April 15 and I thought I was doing fine. My friend finished up my ta.xes and she got me down to a nice amount to pay the government. I didn't expect to get a refund b/c the jobs that I have done in the past year didn't take out taxes since I was an independent contractor. I have enough business receipts and what not to get me down to a low double digit. Sounds great, right? Sure does!

Well I filed the return and low and behold it was rejected. I was shocked but I remained calm. I went to the service to determine why it was rejected. I got a nice message saying that someone had claimed me as a dependent. I was in a state of shock b/c we all know I am an old woman (not really) and no one should be claiming me. All I could think was someone has stolen my SS.N and I am a victim of fraud. I go to my mom and see if her ta.x pro put me down as a dependent. My mom said she would ask her tomorrow. I tell her tomorrow is the 16th and I need to know today. She calls her friend and the friend says she put me down as a dependent. Why would she put me down as a dependent when she knew I was filing my own ta.xes? She knew I was filing my own taxes. I had to file an exten.sion b/c there was no way I could shell out the amount I owe the government. I paid a little bit and I have six months to pay. I am hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can these Tea Party people go far away? Do they know what is really going on? Sometimes I really hate the fact that I live in Georgia b/c there are some truly backward as.s people who couldn't tell you about ta.xes much less spell the word.

The Randomness that I See

Facebook Convo:
Guy: man, what happened to Sunshine Anderson?
Girl: she's looming in the darkness sending Kerry Hilson and Cassie threatening anonymous messages like "you are next"

I love my granny but she is such a faker! She had a minor surgery last week. This morning I opened my bedroom door so that if she needed anything I could hear her. I went back to sleep. While I was asleep she was all over the house taking care of herself. Right after I woke up she couldn't get out of the bed for anything. Also she took it upon herself to not take her insulin this morning. It went downhill from there. Everytime something is wrong it is b/c she hasn't taken her medicine when she was supposed to.

The former boo dropped by to visit me. Shock and awe!

I picked up a bugaboo last week. If I don't answer the phone when you call why do you insist upon continuing to call. Better yet if you don't leave a message I have no reason to call you back. Either way I am irritated with him. He likes to send text messages also. And he doesn't use correct grammar--my biggest pet peeve.

My cousin had her 1 year anniversary party and it was a hot ghetto mess. First there was no formal invite. You either received a phone call or a text message. If that is how I get my invite then I take it you don't want a present or anything from me. I didn't quite no what to wear so I wore a cute strapless dress and some tights and cute heels. I was afraid of what I might see. So it was supposed to start at 7:00 p.m. Saturday night. I got there at 7:30 p.m. and there were 5 guests there. The wife (my cousin) was nowhere to be found. She was "delegating" stuff for people to do via someone else's cell phone b/c she didn't think her phone needed to be charged and it died. She eventually showed up about 8:30 p.m. which jacked up my plan to be gone by 9:00 p.m. People started showing up around the same time. A lot of people had on jeans and polos and just no party clothes.

Thanks jtbrown for the birthday love! I like your blog

I am so happy for SunFresh but she already knows this!

I need to be better organized!

I wish I was more like my mother sometimes! She is a go getter. The only reason why I don't want to be like her is b/c she is pushy with her go getter moves.

I have more but the heck if I can remember today--my memory is hella bad.


I have a couple of things to vent about but the main one is my friend who is getting married in October. So you know I told her that she needs to get it together with the dress. Well she is playing games so now is my time to play games with her. I have picked a dress and if she doesn't like it then guess what I won't be in the wedding. I am not giving any other options. I am just going to laugh when it is time for her to look at her wedding pictures. She has some seriously ghetto people in her wedding and they are going to look a mess. Of course I am going to be cute! I really just want to curse her out and be done with it but I am really trying to understand that she complains about everything so why wouldn't the bridesmaids dresses be the same.

Venting issue number 2 is something I really don't want to vent about b/c I don't want anyone to think I am jealous or hating. I am doing neither. I am actually reading the writings on the wall. I see that I get included in stuff when it is convenient for the individuals and I honestly don't need friends like that. I am not going to discuss but it hurts for sh*t to regularly be thrown up in your face. In my mind we are no longer friends and I am ok with that. I don't even have a need to be cordial any longer. Keep it moving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Venting issue number 3 is the fact that it irks me when people won't let stuff go. I told someone something that happened forever ago. Over 5 years ago--before I even met the individual. I was a young and stupid and can say I haven't done it since that time. Whenever the opportunity presents itself to bring it up--which isn't often b/c I rarely go out--it is brought up. Please let it go!

My 28th Birthday

My birthday was terrific! It started out a little rough (thanks Enter.prise) but it was great!

Friday I got my rental car and then I went to see my mom at work--we had to have our moment b/c it was a special day for her as well. She still talks about the labor. After that I drove to Atlanta and went to my friend's house. While waiting for her to get home I received phone calls from two of my favorite linesisters (I love them all but these two (5 and 25) definitely have a special place in my heart along with a few others). Shout out to 10 and 28--love you! I got a lot of text love and other phone calls. Once my friend came home we found her something to wear and we both got dressed. We then left to go to dinner. There was 9 of us for dinner. We talked and laughed. The waitress was terrible but all of my friends made up for her terrible service. After dinner we went to a sports bar--definitely not my speed (at least this one wasn't). My friend got harassed by a young man who said his job was a "history promoter". Yeah no one to this day know what that job is. We had a pitcher of margaritas and $1 shots. The shots were the best shots ever!!!!

On Saturday I woke up to get ready for my lunch. It was cloudy but I was still enjoying my day. I got dressed and made my way to the restaurant. The lunch was great! Blogland's finest was there--SunFresh and Mimi! They really made my day along with all of my other friends. I really enjoyed the lunch and all the laughs during it. We talked about so much including "promoting history" (maybe they knew what the job was). The waiter was horrible there as well. He just kept disappearing and there was no way to get someone to go get him b/c all of the non waiter/hostess workers didn't speak English. While we were at the restaurant it stormed off and on and the people outside were pretty entertaining. We eventually left after the sky closed up.

After dinner my friend and I went to visit my dad and his girlfriend. It was an interesting visit. We played Wii and learned about China. My dad's girlfriend had just come back from a business trip in China. While we were there she cooked. The woman can cook but I was still full from my lunch. She fried some fish and I think there was corn. She also had a very green salad and some crab legs. I so want a Wii right now!

Sunday was pretty uneventful. We tried to go to church but when we got there there was no parking in the parking lot or on the street. The last time we went to the church we had to struggle to find seats and we parked in the overflow parking so we knew there were no seats for us.

We went to IH.OP where this couple was having argument about the man with some woman he used to work with. Now the current girlfriend works with him as well. I see some issues off the cuff but the conversation just got worse. The girlfriend was probably younger than me but the boyfriend was in his late 30s, early 40s. The other issue they were arguing about was whether the ex quit the job or was fired. One other issue was whether he paid the previous girl for se.x. It was a hot mess but quite entertaining. Why watch Mau.ry when you can go to IH.OP?

We went to visit her family and that was pure comedy. It makes me love my granny even more. Grannies will tell you anything!

I eventually went to see another friend and hung out with her for about 4 hours.

I got home and passed out! That is how I spent my birthday weekend. It was my best birthday since 20. I realize that I am extremely lowkey and it works for me. I like the simple things.
