Friday Freestyles

It's Friday.

I LOVE Fridays. TGIF, man!

Time for thoughts straight off the top of my head.

I am a little tired right now. Why? Because I didn't go to sleep 'til 4 in the morning. Not sure what that was about. I went to sleep around 11:30 pm and slept for 30 minutes, and immediately woke up, feeling as though I'd slept for 10 hours. I hate when that happens. So right now, I need some Folgers. Or some Tasters choice. Since I rarely drink coffee, it may not be such a great idea.

I am so mean. I did something HORRIBLE last night. Serenity and I are starting a new workbook. I've been gently leaning on her about coming up with a reading schedule, but she's been quiet about it. I'd didn't even have the workbook yet, as I was suppose to get it from her when we had lunch last week. Then I was suppose to get it last weekend, but I'd been driving around running errands and did not want to kick out alllll the way to the deep southside to get the book. So she didn't mention anything about it, and I didn't say nothing.

But she said something yesterday on twitter. She has the extra book, but we decided that I'd just roll out and go get it. So I did that last night. I asked her again about the reading schedule. She was indecisive, and put it on me. Which I didn't feel like coming up with. We were texting back and forth about this until I finally said:

*LadyLee holds Serenity down and slaps super strength perm in her hair*

She text back "That's so mean!!!!"

Yes it was, dear. I am so sorry. That's the worst thing that you can say to the natural headed chicks.

So I apologized. Not her fault I was tired and in a foul mood. And I spent a couple of minutes looking at the book and seeing how much I could read and I texted her back. So I think we're on the same page now. I will email my thoughts when I get to work, hon!

She won't be having any trouble out of me for awhile. I must remember to play nice.

I was in charge a couple of times this week. Yep, my boss figured out a great way to get me back for all the drama I put her through. Make me boss while she is gone. I cannot STAND that. I feel a little less smarter because of such.

There were no problems, save for one. Some joker down in Miami was giving me problems about an email I was told to send to him. One of his employees messed up something, and he needed to do it over. I listened to dude rant, while my specialist sat next to me, wanting me to pass him the phone so he could cuss him out.

That woulda been a problem. I told my boss we would've allll been sitting down in the directors office if I or our specialist had to keep talking to this dude. Several books of cuss woulda bust him upside his head.

It was otherwise uneventful. Weird way for the boss to punish me. Very creative of her, though.

Tiger Woods. Did ya'll peep that Tiger Woods commercial? The one with him staring into the camera and the voice of his late father saying:

"Tiger, I am more prone to being inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. And did you learn anything?"

I tell you. I hope he learned something. Like, he should've learned to say next time "Ya'll better leave me alone, or I'm calling out all these other golfers who cheating!!!"

Yeah, that would've shut everything up real quick. It is what it is.

But what his father said was a bit profoud. Sure, it was from some old interview or something. But goodness.... That is a self assessement question that I could ask myself every day. How I feel, what was I thinking, and what did I learn.

The issue here is everybody got their issues. I could care less what Tiger is doing. He's trying to repair his perfection in all of our eyes, I suppose.

The problem is: there's no such thing as perfect. Only the illusion of being perfect.

And that's nothing but smoke and mirrors.

I'm just glad my personal issues have never been on display. Tell you one thing: I ain't explaining JACK to folk. I'll just start calling some folks out. How bout that? lol

That's it for me today. I need to get up and get ready for work. I'm going to go put on a pot of
herbal tea, and sweeten it with a little raw honey... and pretend that it's coffee.

Ya'll have a great Friday. And enjoy your weekend.


  1. Going to the French Quarter Fest and eat until I just explode!
    That is ALL I'm doing today.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Tea is yummier than coffee, so enjoy that herbal sweetness!

    Um 4am??? And, you're up and ready to head to're a soldier

  3. Um....we can't have you in a bad mood miss because we know you do not play nice.

  4. @Ali... AWW MAN! Ya'll come get me. I wanna go. I remember that French Quarter Fest! Talk about having the 'itis!



    @Not so Anon... I didn't drink my tea, as I was running late. Didn't eat my usual oatmeal breakfast eitehr. Hard sigh.

    4 a.m. is a good time. I did get 3 hours of sleep, so I am glad of that.

    @Bandit... Miss big chop, chopped all that long hair off, now you natural! Go girl!

    No, I don't play nice when I am moody... Serenity was forcing me to think too hard. I couldn't help it! She seems to be alright with me... I think. Not sure.

  5. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Friday. Get some sleep!

    LOL @ what you told Serenity. It was mean but funny too.

  7. Girl, I wasn't worried about you perming my head! My hair will never see a perm again! I'd hate to have to whip a friend's azz about my hair. LOL!


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
