The time has been turnt back, and it is raining cats and dogs and frogs in the ATL.
All during rush hour, no less. Wow.
And what's interesting is that I didn't even go to work today. I had trouble sleeping last night due to not feeling well, so I just called off. No big deal. At least I didn't have to get out in the rain. The most I did today was take out all the trash. And that was this evening and the rain had tapered off a bit.
Anyway, I had the bomb Halloween. All ten of the trick-or-treaters that came to my door were VERY happy. Why? Because I had the excellent treats.
Whole candy bars. Packs of cookies. And chips, chips, chips.
To the point that a couple of teenagers rolled up on me. I think they were chaperoning a crew of kids up my street. And they were bouncing a basketball, which was getting on my nerves.
They were the last to come to my door. I let them get what they wanted.
I wanted to add... "Could ya'll please stop bouncing that dayum basketball?"
Alas, I did not.
I left that alone. I live in the hood. Let's just say I left that be. I did not need any problems, even though they were very nice young men.
I had a quiet weekend. It was raining, and I stuck around the house. I didn't need anything, and I needed to catch up on my chores and reading.
Now, there was a special episode surrounding suicide last week of Being Mary Jane. I wanted to watch it, as a journalist will be discussing it on talk show I like this week. He had experienced some of the same problems as on the show, and it left me a bit O_o, because this person is so well accomplished. How could he think of suicide? So I wanted to go watch this show. I've never watched it in the past, as I am not a fan of Gabrielle Union. I watched it, and it was great. I didn't know any of the characters, so I decided to snoop around on my Hulu and Netflix to see if old seasons were available, and they were.
I don't know what I have on tap for the week. I hope to see some sunshine. Just a little. Please and thank you.
Song of the week. "Optimistic" by Sounds of Blackness.
A good positive song. We need more of those.
That's it on this Monday night. I must get up at the crack of dawn and show my face at work. I'm still not sleepy. I will pop some zzzquil on something.
So I can sleep hard... on purpose.
