the soundtrack of my life…

Posts Tagged ‘Just Because

I haven’t done a damn thing in the last few days.  And it’s felt really good.

Thursday night, I met Brran and Babs for dinner.  I got home around 7-7:30pm and didn’t leave my house again until 11am on Saturday morning when I had to run to see about getting my phone fixed.

The only human contact I had was talking to my boy Decatur on the phone and through text messages.

It’s been great.  Now I have to get my mind ready to get back on the grind…….

How were your long weekends?


I’m confused by Plies and his “hood accent” that disappears during interviews…you’re not sounding like much of a goon now, Algernod…(that’s Plies in the white hat, in case you couldn’t tell)


I’m so happy for my favorite couple, Karl and Christina…they are FINALLY engaged! 🙂


Why the hell were those 4 white guys walking around Little 5 Points yesterday afternoon looking like the were caught in an aluminum foil factory explosion?


“There was one thing I didn’t show, I love him and he doesn’t know…”


Man, I feel like I did WAY too much last night…I swear 2:30am came entirely too quickly. I guess that means we were having a good time with Tish and her crew. Praise the Lord for the guestroom at Decatur’s momma’s house!


I can’t believe I snapped like that while I was on the phone…I really didn’t mean for what I said, how I said it. I just blurted it out…but it DID make my point.


“This woman is growing weary of having to be so strong, of having to pretend I’m made of stone so I won’t end up with no broken bones. I can’t fight every battle alone…”


Going to work yesterday was totally pointless. A waste of gas even. I mean I’m not really complaining because I didn’t have to stay the entire day.


I really need to make some decisions soon. Time is ticking and I’m not…….


Wow! This is my 150th Post. I guess maybe it should’ve been about something of some substance, but no. LOL

I will say this — check out Gordon Gartrell Radio. Yes, that would be Gordon Gartrell of the classic episode of The Cosby Show where Denise makes Theo a “replica” of the hottest designer shirt. The site features links to podcasts from DJ Brainchild and Phonte from Little Brother’s. There’s good music as well as Phonte’s comments on everything from YouTube videos to the R. Kelly trial to Father’s Day. It’s pure entertainment and Phonte is a FOOL! LMAO

Anyhoo, I hope you all had a good weekend!

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there! Special shout outs go to my father Tom, my boy Decatur, Napoleon, Tierre, Chris, and father-to-be Ali!

Thanks to Babs, I can now call myself a gamer. Babs was asked to host a Girlfriend’s Guide to Gaming. You see, Nintendo is marketing the Nintendo DS Lite to women. (Check out the commercials with America Ferrara, Carrie Underwood and Liv Tyler!)

I just got home from the party. And I must say I HAD A BLAST! The party was held in Castleberry Hill in this cute little lofty building. There was free food and beverages, a group of fabulous ladies and the Nintendo DS Lite. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time, and it was something totally different and out of the norm for me. When I walked in, I was giving this cute bracelet, which was filled with charms from each activity area as the night went on — a checkered heart, yellow puzzle piece, a pink shoe, and a guitar pick. There were four different areas, each with a different game for us to test out. I started with Mario Kart DS. How much fun was that? Of course, it could’ve been extra fun because I kept winning! 🙂 Who knew I’d be so good at video games? I guess all those nights at Decatur’s house with his PS3, XBox360, Wii, and PSP have rubbed off on me! LOL

After kickin’ some ass on the race track, I headed over to the Brain Age area. To start off, I took a “test” to see what my brain age was. Apparently my brain age is 58. I was told that that was good and with some practice, I can bring that age down. (The goal brain age is 20.) It wasn’t a bad game, but I think that game will have to grow on me. You see, I’m dyslexic and there was a section of the “test” that involved memorizing a set of 25 numbers and then rewriting them in the same order. I think I may have gotten 4 numbers correct, needless to say, I have to work on that section.

After my dyslexia kicked in with the numbers, I decided it was time for me to switch to words. I headed to the Crosswords DS area. Man, this was my kind of game. There were 3 options within the game — crosswords, wordsearch and anagrams. I didn’t do any of the crosswords. I completed a few wordsearches and then decided to try my hand at the anagrams. I swear I could’ve sat there toying with the anagrams for hours. I love anagrams, and have played the anagram game on Decatur’s PSP plenty of times.

The final station was Guitar Hero: On Tour, which doesn’t come out until June 22nd, so we got a sneak peek. This was a fun game, well, once I figured out what the hell I was doing. At first, I was just making noise, but I was still jammin’ to the songs that you had to choose from. My two favorites were “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” by Jet and “All The Small Things” by blink-182.

It was great to meet some new ladies, especially Coop (I felt like I’ve known you forever though lol!) and reconnect with some ladies I haven’t see in a while. The funniest part of the whole evening was the fact that just about everyone had a nickname — it was either their blogosphere name or a nickname Babs gave to them personally (like me) — I think it threw off the ladies who were working the event for Nintendo.

OMG, I almost forgot the BEST part! We each got to take home our own DS Lite and a copy of Brain Age 2! You can’t beat a party with free food and drinks, fabulous company, AND free gifts! That equals a HAPPY ME! 🙂 Good times!

Thanks again Babs for the invite!

This has to be the greatest show EVER!  It debuted last night on TVLand.  It’s basically America’s Next Top Model for women over 35.  Take a look at a few of the contestants:

Tanya is a mother of FIVE!

I had NO IDEA she was 50 before she said it.  Even the judges were amazed at her age!

…but I’ll be damned if Romeo (aka Lil Romeo) ain’t lookin’ damn good these days!  Like I know I’ve mentioned my love for Hot Young Tenders previously, but they are just poppin’ up all over, I can’t help it!
