Is It My Turn?

Why is it that when your life sucks, it seems like everyone else is having a great time? Why is it when your life is going great and you just want to share the goodness with everyone, it seems like their lives are going down the toilet?

I want to tell my friends how excited I am about my new job to be and about the stupid thing my cool co-worker did. I want to talk about how much I miss him being there and how I can't wait to see him soon. I want to talk about my vacation and about how he is going away again. I want to tell them how my life is going great but I can't because they just lost their jobs, they are having relationship issues. They just don't want to talk right now and I understand because I have been there and done that already.

So I sit and wait and my stories never get told. I do the right thing. I listen and be supportive, wishing that someone supported me.

Nothing to Wear

I'm hot, I'm tired, and I'm bothered. I have four more days before I head to the Bahamas and I still have nothing to wear to my brothers wedding. Every store(that is in my price range) has similar dresses, none of which I like. Many of the dresses are similar to dresses that I own already. I want something different. This is my first beach wedding and I was instructed to look fabulous.
Its so hard to be fabulous and broke. Well... I'm not really broke so I guess I should say fabulous and cheep. I really don't want to pay more than $100 for a dress. I mean, I'm not getting married. I just bought my plane ticket, clothes, shoes, I'll have to pay for food, and not to mention the hotel. This does not even include a gift and I have not even done my hair.
GOSH! Would they spend this much money on me? Sometimes I wonder. Anyhow, I just checked the weather report and it says thunderstorms for the next 10 days. The last place I want to be is on the beach in the rain. Well, I hope God holds the rain up for a day. I'm sure this trip will end up marvelous and I will look as fabulous as usual.

And for those of you who have not seen me lately, here is a picture to remind you of what you are missing.

Ike Turner

Ike turner died today and all I could think about was the line "Eat the cake, Anna Mae"

Ike Turner, What's Love Got To Do With It

“A lot of people believe that the movie is the true story, that Tina did. I don't wanna debate on Ike & Tina, but I have to say this one thing... That movie was the biggest lie, and even Tina said that it's a lie. And she don't like the movie. But she started put gas on the fire by supporting it.”

Time to Myself.

This is the first week in my life when i can say that i have actually been home alone. 7 days of being all by myself. Its actually not as bad as I expected it to be. On day one, I found myself with all of the TVs on and the radio on just to hear noise. It was getting so quiet in my house. I swear i could hear my next door neighbors music playing.
I was so productive on Monday. I cooked, cleaned out the car, and cleaned the house. I even watched BET and caught up on all the videos that i have never seen (you know the owns that i am embarrassed to admit that i actually like).

***Side Bar***
I am watching the World Series and the Red Socks are kicking ass. This is incredible. Its only the top of the second and the score is already 1 to 4 Red Sox.

Yeah, so anyway, like I was saying before I digressed, I watched all these new videos, I saw the BET 2007 awards show because it was rerunning, I watch Greys Anatomy on and I even caught up on Girlfriends on the CW. I had a very productive day.

I've also been reading this book called Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I saw it at Borders. When i read the back i got really interested to read more. Its about a "person" who was born intersexed but it was not discovered until she was 14 years old. Her grandparents are also brother and sister. How incestuous is that? I couldn't imagine even thinking of my brother in that way. *YUCK*

Some how this book interested me because i just wanted to educate myself on the sinful ways of this earth. LOL. If you have some time. I would recommend you read this book.

Anyhow. I need to focus all my attention to the RedSox. I must go. My week alone is actually going smoothly and its moving faster than i expected. Being alone is still nothing that i would like to get used to.

Twentysomethings Four Minute Dating Party

What do you think about 4 minute dating parties? I keep getting these invitations but I still can’t see myself attending one of these events. I’m new to this city and I would like to meet young professionals but, is this the route that I want to take? I don’t know!
My curiosity wants me to attend just one event so that I can have a first hand experience. I need someone to go with me… who is down? If it turns out to be an unsuccessful experience, we will erase it from out memories, act like it never happened. Just like the events in the movie Men in Black. Let me know!

Reclaiming my SEXY

I think its time for me to get serious about working out and eating healthy again. I can’t say that I eat very unhealthy, but I do eat my unhealthy snacks from time to time. I’ve been looking at my body and my one pack is gone.
One pack…you laugh!
Yes, I had only one pack, but that is more than many people have. I’m going to work out 3 times a week. I’m not in college anymore I can’t work out everyday. Working out my abs was so important. Once I stopped doing them I really see the difference. I’m not trying to be skinny, just healthy. I don’t want to see any rolls, flab, cellulite, and I am tired of my thighs rubbing together.
I am 5’9. 165 lbs and I wear a size 10. I want to drop down just a little bit so that I can feel comfortable in my shorts.
I know I can do it. I’ve done it before.
I’m reclaiming my sexy size 8 with my sexy one pack. Maybe this time I’ll get two.
God didn’t give me that “perfect body” because he knew I would be on someone’s calendar and walking the streets half naked. He wants better for me!
