Friday Freestyle

Wassup Peoples?

Sorry I haven't blogged much this week... My mind has been elsewhere.

I have PLENTY of posts to write, but I haven't gotten around to it.

That will change next week.

My week. Has been a little on the down side. This is midyear review week at work, and it seems like everyone is getting shafted. People are not happy.

Let's just say, one older employee who I admire, who's wife has been very ill, was told that he needed to...

...focus.

Yeah... Callousness is not even the word for that type of comment.

I haven't had my review. I have it today. Don't know how it will go. I've worked hard on my job, but I don't have the brownnosing trait, so you know how that goes.

Oh well, can't worry about it. My goal is to not get into a shouting match with my boss. I can do that. I am notorious for the silent treatment and the death stare. That'll work.

I am looking forward to the weekend. I have a writing group meeting tonight. Hopefully this will jump off once per month. My writing has been suffering much, and I need the jumpstart.

My brother is going to Iraq next month. He's having a gathering at Grandma's house. We've been at odds (well, I told him some stuff he didn't want to hear), and well, that killed our relationship. (This is why I RARELY give my opinion to people. You really have to push me, threaten me, and hem me up in a corner if you want me to give you my opinion on things. I always get punished for speaking my mind. ALWAYS).

But I will show my face. His son is due in October. I made a nice baby blanket. I will go over, give him and his wife the gift, stay a few minutes, and go on home.

Happy Birthday: Happy Birthday to blogger Aretha, proprietor of one my favorite blogs! Well, belated birthday, that is. She turned 29 this week! For some reason (say, the maturity of her actions and decisons), I thought this chick was in her mid- to late- 30's. I was shocked that she's only 29.

You know my motto: "You don't know nothing until you turn 30".

If that's the case with her, well... that chick is gonna do some MAJOR things in her 30's. Good gracious alive!

Happy Birthday, Chick! Do your thang!

Still vegetarian. Well, I'm still vegetarian!

Been vegetarian for

39 days.

944 hours.

56,640 minutes.

3,398,400 seconds... and counting.

Feeling okay. Doing okay. Will discuss my thoughts next week.

For now, I'm gonna hold the car in the road and keep it moving!

Video of the Week. I love video montages. Here's one from the Motown 40th anniversary box CD set.



You know, I am glad that Michael Jackson's kids have such a deep library of footage of their father. They can watch him over and over again. It's not the same as him being there, by no means, but it is a treasure within itself...

Definitely makes one smile in the midst of the sorrow.

With that said... find something to smile about today.

And have a great weekend... on purpose.
