Why My Cousin Got Married

Remember this post:
Well I finally found out why that cousin got married so quickly and gasp she wasn't pregnant. She did get pregnant later but that isn't why she got married. So one day this summer I was talking to my dad's live in girlfriend and we were discussing my cousin's marriage. So I randomly stated that I wondered why they got married when they did. Well she told me she asked and got an interesting answer (in my opinion). So my cousin tells her that they got married b/c when he proposed both of their leases would be up in about 7 weeks and they didn't want to shack up (I ain't mad at them for that). So they decided to plan the wedding and get married in 7 weeks. This was hilarious to me b/c she told this all to my dad's live in girlfriend who has been living with my dad since like 1987. Yes you read that right, 1987!

Lazy Saturday

Today I was uber lazy! I stayed in the bed until almost 12:00 and didn't get dressed until after 1:00 p.m. I watched football and played on the internet.

So the real purpose of this post is to talk about how sports commentators irritate the crap out of me. They talk like they know what is best but sometimes it just doesn't work on the field. Today I heard the worst thing I think I could have heard. I was watching the v. game and the commentator says, "His father is currently incarcerated." WTF? That has what to do with the game. So I put this on my fac.eb.ook status and one of my friends tells me that she heard another commentator say something to the effect of "this kid was abandoned by his parents as a boy so dropping a few passes isn't the worst thing that's happened to him". Once again WTF? So unnecessary!

I am actually posting....

Yeah so I think I am back in the blog game

So back to the car situation--hot mess I still have no car! So another door was purchased but someone decided to buy a door from a different year. This happened last Monday. You think someone would ask some questions but no, none of that. Then the idiot body shop guy puts it on. He tries to make it work and then he plays dumb today and says you need a door that is the same year as the car. Now I have never been mechanically inclined but something told me when I found out the door year and car year didn't match it wasn't going to work out. I said nothing b/c like I said before I am not mechanically inclined. I have no words!

After my purchases this week I can buy nothing else. I have spent too much money

I am so excited about my hair appointment tomorrow. I am now trying to stretch out relaxers. I have gone without a touch up for 10 weeks (thats a lot for me). 2 years ago you couldn't convince to wait more than 6 weeks. My hair is much healthier.

I got the shoes for the wedding I am in--I am going to be fierce! I am so conceited!

I started dance class last week--the instructor got me. It was funny b/c she took me back to my ballet days. She killed my calves. I couldn't walk right until Saturday. We aren't having class for this week and next week b/c she had to go out of town but I am excited for the next class. The class is ballet warm up and modern dance. The other people in class are dancers on the local college's drill team so I will get to learn their field routine. They aren't Ebony Fire but who is? (Rock the blue and white!)

That is all!

Random Ramblings

It has been so long since I last blogged--sorry. I had too much going on in my life.

My car is a piece of crap--I had to finally say it. I am currently in a rental car b/c the car needs a new driver's door. Who knows when I will get the door.

So the past few weeks I have been busy working, doing De.moc.ratic stuff, planning a Super Sweet 16 for my wish kid. I also started a tax preparation course--I figure after this year tax debacle I should probably learn about taxes. I am also starting dance class this week.

Why are we always quick to scream rac.ism about certain situations? I know there are certain situations that are just like your boy Jo.e Wil.son but not everything is rac.e related. After Ka.nye's outburst last night some people were like M.TV is ra.cist b/c Be.yonce didn't win but I disagree. Fans voted for the videos and I am going to go out on a limb to say that T Sw.ift's fans were voting like crazy and Be.yonce's fan not so much. I just want to say that the only video I actually saw was B's and I wasn't that impressed since half of the moves she got from some black dance team--I can say that b/c I was an assistant coach for a high school team and I actually knew some of the moves from the video when I first saw the video. Jac.kson did a beautiful job last night--she is definitely still hurt but I am glad she still has it. The girl can dance!

The sweet 16 was beautiful. When the photographer puts up the pictures on her site I will let you know. The birthday girl was estatic. She really enjoyed herself but she got a little sick during the party and had to change into her pjs.

Unfortunately the week before the party we found out her cancer has returned and it appears that she is terminal. Please keep her in your prayers b/c God is in the miracle performing business.

Also I got to hang out with blogger Jameil and Adei von K. My linesister/their friend got married La.bor Day weekend. They are truly the lives of the party. It was a wonderful weekend.

That is all for now but I will get my schedule together and work blogging in much better than before.
