I may not go home...But I'm getting the hell out of here!.
People are dropping out of Bush's cabinet quicker than he can blink. ( And we know that's fast because of the debates)What does this tell you America? Usually people want to stay with a winner. My theory... Bush has caused enough desiccation and misery in this and other countries to last them a lifetime. The Attorney General, Secretaries of State, Agriculture, Commerce, Energy and Education..They all want to disassociate themselves from the fool and his administration. I'm sure more will follow.

Top 5 reasons
The 25 million dollar hoax would not work with my family...

5. Your entire family has to be there supporting you at the end.

4. The jet

3. The insult to my mother at the shopping spree...Ahh...hell no
2. Just after offering to purchase dad a used vehicle, he would have jumped in my 81,000 dollar hummer and run me over.

1. Day 1-- My mother would have put me out of my misery because this child has " lost her damn mind"
Let's just say my Fam is not as 'camera friendly'

Nothing but death can keep me from it!
That's how I feel about my right to vote. I have heard the most foolish excuses this past week for not voting. I'm just dumbfounded. I couldn't even imagine not wanting to vote. I couldn't wait to register in 1984. I couldn't wait to walk into the booth. It just makes me sick. I guess being a Political Science major will do that. But you have to feel like you can make a difference, at least try. It's disheartening that so many of our young people feel they can't. P. Diddy said it best Vote Or Die!.

I'm venting... Having a MEAN OL' LION Wiz moment.I know that the shit is soon to hit the fan. I know this because there are many changes taking place. The changes are coming from headquarters. I had overtime this week that I won't be getting because I was made to leave early. Everyone was made to leave who had overtime, except V. Who I am beginning to believe has something really juicy on N. Hell he must have pictures, audio and video tape! I mean I could understand if I was the only one complaining. But the entire office! C'mon damn. He even had the nerve to tell her he didn't like working with certain types of Mexicans. Had I said something like that, I would have been fired a second after it came from mylips. I would have to be absolutely out of my mind to listen to the double talk coming from my boss' mouth. "Everything is fine. No one is jeopardy of losing their job. Were all safe here." But in the same breath say we need to find a way to quickly generate more business! I am at the point now where it's a struggle to go in everyday. I should never be at that point, no one should. The shit is getting too deep.

Well it has taken one month for everything to come to a head. I knew it wouldn't take long. As the saying goes...he was given enough rope to hang himself.

Just when I thought my job was going to get the best of me, I made a simple suggestion and they loved it. I love it... I suggested that we split the prospects. Simple, but this will ease my mind. I have my very own people to deal with. I am no longer going back and forth. I no longer have to answer for anyone else's numbers. I know that I am supposed to be part of a team but, if I have to crash and burn; let it be because I didn't do my job. Not someone dropped the ball so we all have to suffer.It's bonus time...crunch time. I really don't feel like part of a team, and finally I have the chance to prove myself , my worth. Now if one of my co-workers will keep their ass away from my files...this will work.

Ron O'neal died of cancer last month (otherwise know as Superfly). He was also Whitley's father on A Different World. Rest in peace brother. Today I was marketing for the company and sometimes I feel like I'm beating a dead horse. I'm going to all these chamber meetings and luncheons, making all these contacts and I just feel like I'm hustling backwards. For everyone one that we bring in 2-4 leave. So what are we doing about retention? Nothing! When I mention this in our meetings I'm looked at like I have two heads. All they have to say is...We have to market more, we have to get prospects in here! It's not rocket science people. ( positive) 1 and ( negative ) 2 leaves a ( negative) 1. I think we learned this in first grade.I'm working over , under, past and through time, for what? Lord, please let my business pick up.

As I am preparing Sunday dinner I am having my own Old School Revue "Up in Here". What ever happened to Sybil, Vicki Sue Robinson, Junior and Col. Abrams, Miki Howard, Chic , Force MD' list is endless and if I'm dating myself I don't care. This is good music! Is meatloaf still singing? I think he's taken to acting now. Back to the music...Kool and the gang,Hall and Oats, Air Supply, and Parliment-Funkadelic.. here I come

Would they throw my ass under the jail and throw away the key if I was found guilty for dumping my stock a day before it went belly up? Answer... Hell Yeah. Didn't even have time to blink before you answered that one. Will Martha serve any serious jail time.. I doubt it. I bet she has really good credit.

My car died today...I have been watching it day by day try and sputter along and slowly take me to and fro. It was a good sturdy car. I appreciate the effort it made to hang on. As we were sitting together for three hours ...THREE DAMN HOURS...waiting for a tow truck, I let him know that he would be missed. Now I have to go find another, one who will hang on at least half as long as he did. Goodbye long.

Without looking at the word only hearing it. I chose to help my nephew with his vocabulary. Surely, I had forgotten that words can sound alike but be spelled differently and mean different things. The word... Eminent. I tell him, because he did not know what it meant. "What if someone says to you that you are in imminent danger if you walk in front of a truck?, Does that help you?." He said no it didn't because he was looking at the sentence used in the book. So of course he was confused. I said " Okay look it up in the thesarus and see which words are similiar". He said it says ...famous...prominent...projecting...conspicuous. I say.... because it still had not clicked.... " Well the thesarus is wrong because that is not what imminent means!"... By now he is thinking I have slipped off the deep end. So I walk over and actually look at the word. ....OH!......However, I am willing to admit when I am wrong. Websters... I apologize.

Feeling badly about taking a day, and knowing that we are trying to make the numbers for the quarter I drug myself to work. Nevermind the fact that my eyes looked like I was trying to imitate a raccoon and my stomach and back were aching from coughing so much.So now I'm walking around like Quasi Moto. No problem...I'm one else was.....

I was complaining because I had to wait to celebrate V-day. I had gone on and on about how rude this was. How it only comes once a year and he should have prepared. Then I realized that...some people had no one to share the day with. No one called, no one will.

I would like to call attention to the fact that our young brothers and sisters are becoming infected with A.I.D.S. at an alarming rate. Being that I am now raising a boy; and seeing how easily girls are wooed by him, I must say that I am so scared; Not only for this little boy, but all of them. I remember the talks with my parents. I remember looking just like he does when we have our talks, and swearing on all that I held dear that I would never. Then having sex. But my biggest worry was becoming pregnant. I didn't want to disappoint my parents and become and unwed mother. So I took the proper precautions. Is preaching wrap it up enough? Is preaching abstinence realistic? I'm watching a television commercial and seeing how much fun it is to have herpes. What a little moonlight and Valtrex can do....What's going on?

You know...I have tried very hard to like Camille on( America's Next top model). I always try to stand up for sisters who are trying to do positive things...but,damn... I want her gone! I do not understand people, that feel in order to succeed they have to be obnoxious and belittle on others. I am not knocking a sister for her confidence. However,there is a time and a place to promote your "divatude"( My new word). Mostly I think when you have been around long enough to be considered one.

Give Janet and me a damn break...It's not like she and Just simulated sex or anything that you may see on 7 out of 10 videos. OK... perhaps she did not pick the best time to express herself. But do you think her brother being up on molestation charges has anything to do with all the hoopla? Of course the media wants to show the whole fam as a bunch of deranged, sex crazed, loonies. That may be...and I in no way wish to defend anyone that messes with children..but do we really know what's up? Of course I think MJ has some issues...But let it stop there... This has gone too far...Do your thing Janet.

Winter storm 2004....awwwwwwwwww! I hate snow, I hate cold weather, I really hate ice. And... I think the feeling is mutual. I have not seen a salt truck anywhere near my street. I think the winter skating olympics can be held in my parking lot. I am not even thinking about getting into my car and going anywhere. Yes, I'm missing money, but life and limbs are in greater demand. It's not that I can't drvie.. I can. But there are at least 2000 people in Charlotte who can't and they are all waiting for me to get on the road. I won't give them the satisfaction.

Work. Take care of the child. Sleep. Work. Take care of the child. Sleep. Work. Take care of the child. Sleep. Work.Take care of child. Sleep... Hmmm... Had a "Shining" moment. I had to watch top models again because I missed half of it yesterday. I must say Tyra brought the drama from day one. I know everyone is for themselves here. Trying very hard to prove they are the next MS. THING.; but couldn't they have at least threw a pillow at the girl who overslept on the way to the shoot? And I must give it up to my girl for sticking to her beliefs and not posing....but did she really have to be cut? I guess they didn't want a Robin part II.

Worked. Took care of the child. Going to sleep.

I spent the day rearranging furniture. I'm probably going to change it back the way it was because I don't like the way it looks now. I think I made a mistake by telling my co-worker if he needs anything he can give me a call at home. He called me twice. For a moment I felt like I was at work. My nephew decided to come home when he felt like it instead of when I told him to, so now he must write an essay on the importance of doing what he is told. He hates to write...All in all I guess today was a good day.

Little JJ won! He really is a very talented Kid. For those of you that don't know on BET there is a a show called "Coming to the stage ", that showcases up and coming young comedians. This young man is 13 years old but i have really enjoyed him. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him.
In other news... There are some people at my job who are very childlike. I am trying very hard to remain the adult and ignore the madness. It was one of my new years resolutions to try to be more patient. So far it's working but damn....the devil is a busy bee. I just feel like let's respect each other and do our damn jobs...You don't have to like me...I'm just asking for simple respect... If you're damn near 10 years older than me you should know how to conduct yourself at work. Some people just thrive on drama. I don't. I have no time for it in my life. So tomorrow I will go to work and pretend she is invisible again...but why does it have to be this way?

My first blog of the year. It's taken this long to get over New Years Eve. I know that you are thinking damn she must have partied hard. NO! I was stuck uptown with about 6000 other Charlotteans having no fun at all. I was thinking... Okay. I have been here damn near 20 years and I have not gone uptown once for New Years Eve. Now I know why. The fireworks display was actually ( I think ) Three Roman Candles and some firecrackers. There were three DJ booths but none of the played any thing rap or R&B related. Forgive me, they did play" Doing the Butt ". Now I'm not saying that all the music
should have been all soul review but... Damn can I at least get a song played this year? I was groped and grabbed more than I care to children with more Bling bling than sense. Then when the show ( yawn) was over, there were 3 million people standing in line at the club I wanted to go to.... say....I enjoyed the movie. Just another day in paradise...Happy New Year everyone.
