Two Scoops of Crazy

Lotsa folks say you are who you attract...
I'mma get myself checked with a psychologist, cause I seem to have a magnet in my booty that attracts crazy people!

Case in point, I was sorta involved with this dude, we'll call him NavyGuy. Well, he fell into sorryazzzmanmode and stood me up for a weekend. This pissed me off to no end, cause he was not really apologetic or anything. I felt like if you didn't think it was wrong you would do it again, and I told him as much.
Meanwhile, I started chatting with this other dude, we'll call him CaliGuy. Good looking, no kids, not a bum, and we seemed to vibe. Convo was great, but it seemed it was too good to be true...'specially when he started talkin about visiting. *raised eybrow*
Well, it all came to a head one day in a seemingly innocent convo. I was complaining about some ticket trouble (damn you, IPD *shakin' fist*) and he just...BLEW UP.
Like, I suspect if I hadda been in the room, his head would have done a full 360 and green bile would have flew out! I was like WTFJH!?!? Like, at what point did you become this sexist, chauvinistic, jerky dude? IDK...I hung up tout de suite and haven't talk to him since.
I guess I was hoping that after NavyGuy dissapointing me that a guy could really be as good as advertised...don't want to lose that optimism, you know? But IDK...think I might be better off focusing on my career and what I'm supposed to accomplish and not on the business of companionship.

How FABULOUS am I?

Now, I realize that the title may lead one to believe that I'm self centered and I'm really not...
But I really am quite fabulous.
I mean, I went to college on an academic scholarship. I've gotten 2 degrees. I live by myself, have my own car, and a good job. As of today, I've saved nearly 20K in all my accounts. That's money I ain't TOUCHING y'all! I'm pretty independent, but I'm not evil or stank acting. As educated as I am, I can get hood in a second...I'm a nice balance of bourgie and ghetto, LOL. (BOURGHETTO!!! I know I ain't the only one that remembers that song!)
I have to have lil' random posts like this to keep me sane. LAWD KNOWS, with the world out here like it is, a sistah can forget her fabulosity sometimes!

Love, Peace and Nappiness

Bloggin' on the way to lunch...

Just another day, out here in the hood, just another day around my way...
Feelin' good today...Feelin lovely hey...
Well, not really...
Sittin @ the lunch table with my colleagues feelin totally and utterly DETACHED from the convo...
I mean, they are nice, and I'm not usually a social recluse, but I mean REALLY--what does a black chick born in FL & raised in IN have to talk about with a bunch of much older, very white, male Germans!?!?
I try to participate, but its tough...nothin in common!
Dayz like this I wish I worked for an American CPG in the A...

Prunin' My Universe

So, anyone that knows me, knows I have a philosphy on friendship. I'm the sun, and the planets in there different orbits are the level of friendship upon which you operate.




You a Mercury/Venus/Earth orbit friend, we are very close and I confide in you regularly. You a Jupiter/Saturn friend, we may hang out, but you don't get the dirt, and so on and so forth.
Well, as of late, I'm noticing that there are a lot of friends around Neptune and Pluto...or folks that should be in a whole 'nother galaxy altogether! I'm not sure how this happened, but I've realized there are a lot of folks that might not even piss on me if I were on fire, and they are takin' up spots in my solar sytem.
Part of this is my fault, 'cause damn my sweet heart, I like to believe if you show folks love, and be the kind of person that other people want to care about, they will.

NOT TRUE. Especially not in Philly.

The men and women in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection will MILK YOU DRY and KEEP GOING. Some of the people I've met are like locusts. And I've been like a big uncovered crop of corn before the harvest.

So, part of this pruning is me learning not to care so much about folks until they do something or show me some reason to care. I've also got to learn that I can't be concerned with everyone that crosses my path...I think I get lonely up here, and I want to give folks more than what they deserve. That makes me a mark. A sucker. And I can't go out like that.
So we 'bout to take this thang herr down a notch. No more calling folks I ain't talked to to check on them. No more "I was just wondering what you have been up to" texts. If we ain't talked in forever, you are going outward. If we wouldn't talk if I didn't initiate it, you can head to the Andromeda galaxy homie. Kick intergalactic rocks, I can't be bothered! Good riddance.

Love, Peace and Soul,
T
