Sunset Monologue 160
Brain SpillageBlog Musical Mood: Love - Keisha Cole
Ever have a taste for something and just can't get to it? I really want a nice cold coke, lol. So let's see what's going on in my world for today - February 20, 2006.

- At about 7pm this evening with a quick click, I officially completed the first formal college course I've had in about seventeen years. Hooray for me! I worked on that damn paper all day and finally got it finished. I did this first one for the most part absent of help, but I did purchase THIS - because the wheel has already been invented, I just need to take the ride,lol. A good sound $39.99 investment. I get no break, my next class Management 330 - Management for Organizations begins tomorrow. I don't have my book yet - but I think it will be here tomorrow so I can get started. I have to complete a weeks worth of work in three days....
- Because I go to Baltimore this weekend. I don't want to go in all honesty. This weekend like I mentioned before is one to stay in Atlanta for. However, I'm doing this (1) to appease my mother and (2) because my daughter needs this. Ya'll know I don't talk about religion to much on the blog, not because I can't but because I'm just in a way more spiritual place and that doesn't really need discussing. I'll give ya'll a lengthy one when I get back.
- Sooo it seems as if very quietly LA's Finest has 'googled' me,lol. I don't have an issue with that because I don't have anything to hide - but I find it funny and slightly cute. I don't know if I've ever been googled before. I've been on this information highway when it was a dirt road - and I've had my screen name for five years now, so sure my name got legs. I googled myself one time and didn't find anything exciting, lol. My naked ass ain't on the net - so anything else is fair game. Now if in the googling he found a way to fix my messed up credit - THAT would be something, lol
I have a couple of new toys, I'm really enjoying. First look at this beautiful crock pot! I broke it in with some oxtails the other day and I can't wait to cook more things in it. Ya'll know me and my cooking, lol. Then I got my video camera in the mail. This was a good score on Ebay. I sold the one I had and made a profit - so that's even better. I'm still figuring it all out, but I definately will be taking good video and pictures of the Baltimore Trip - who knows this bad boy here might take the blog.....visual in more ways than one!
Mini-me went to the dance and had a good time. I got a chance to peek in, since the dance was held in the Cafetorium which is all glass. Honey some things don't change. All the girls were all clustered together or eating and the boys were running around buck wild - wrestling and hitting one another, lol. As you can tell, she sure thought she was cutey (and I did too, lol)
- My mood right now is sooo smokey. Even LA (he gets a nickname of the nickname, lol) said that I sound like I been smoking weed etc. I get in these kinda moods where I'm just so in the zone that I am this low key. I flared bad today in a shall we say intense debate with my mom - but you know what - I stood my ground and said what I had to say - the level of stres that relationship produces is on the decline honey. I hang up the phone and poof, moving on. So I guess this is just me getting back centered. Now what would make this mood even more right is a kiss right down the middle of my back, with lips that have just drank a red bull so they are all cool and sweet - but in due time.
I had something interesting happen at the end of the week. I have been involved in keeping up good spirits as well as planning an event for a co-worker. I am always involved because folks know I give a good set and my signature dishes are requirements at most social functions I attend. So I'm all set, when someone approachs me and asks if I'm going to an event that would precede the one I was involved in. I'm like um no, didn't know there was going to be one. I get a description of how nice the invite was blah blah blah and I'm confident that it was just an oversight. So I proceed to ask one of my girls, that very question. Now here's where it gets quite matrix like - I am told I wasn't invited because I....wasn't....Christian.
Apparently the preacher will be there to bless the house, bless the mom and say some scripture etc. etc. and it was felt that I would be uncomfortable. Let me pull from one of my favorite movies "Sparkle" So we got one brain thinking for two people. HUH?! to tell ya'll my feelings were HURT is an understatement. I was there when 'Janets' sister's home got blessed, I was at there in the Church when 'Janet' got her wedding blessed (she got married in the Islands and needed the Priests blessing when they got home), I have been to Weddings, Baptisms, and I could go on and on - so to exclude me, especially when the exclusion was coming from folks I've known for YEARS, considered friends and have always respected and admired - cut to the bone. Especially when this is a BABY SHOWER and I still can't imagine what was going to go down that would cause my presence to sully it. Might as well told me I couldn't sit at the counter because I was a nigga.
I rolled with it, but as always, it was VERY evident in my eyes that I was beyond...I have gotten my head together about it, but it's all changed in my eyes. I won't pull out my recessive 'bitch' gene and say some things that crossed my mind - but even though I'm not Christian - I'm going to exhibit Christian like behaviour and take the high road and turn the other cheek. But best believe me, things won't ever be the same.....they can't.
