Old People

OK, it seems that the older we get the more we begin to come full circle in the cycle of life. Think about it, we are born and totally dependent on our parents for our very survival. We get to our teens and go through puberty where we become, mean and cliquish. In those teens years the hottest clothes and the sexiest cars are must haves. We get in our 20's and 30's and material things don't matter much because we are focused on our careers where we are making money like never before and the material things are easy to get at that point. Then we become middle aged and things start to go backwards, we go through mid life crisis and go out and buy that shiny red corvette. Men divorce their wives for some young hottie who's only after their money. Then we become senior citizens and get mean and cliquish again. Then we become ancient and have to rely on our grown children to clothe and bath us.

I visit my mother at her assistant living facility and those old ass people are mean as all get out. They sit at the same tables for every meal and if someone different sits at their table they actually look at them and say, "This is not your table. You can't sit here." Mind you there are no assigned seating in the dining room. So now that person feels unwanted and ends up sitting at a table alone.

I was talking to my mother one day as I was pushing her wheelchair towards the elevator on our way back to her apartment when I accidentally bumped into an old lady. She said, "Ouch, you bumped into me with that thing." I said, "Oh, I'm sorry. I was talking to my mother and I didn't see you." I honestly didn't know I bumped her and genuinely felt bad. This heifer had the audacity to say to me, "Yeah, you weren't paying attention. You need to watch where you are going." Can I tell you I looked at that woman and just stared at her for a minute. I was THIS CLOSE to smacking that old biddy in her mouth. All that nastiness was totally unnecessary and almost got her a beat down.

I'm sorry but I'll fight an old person. That's how I roll.

I've Received An Award

My blog buddy, Freckle Face Girl was wonderful enough to give lil ol' me this “I LOVE THIS BLOG” award. I was very surprised.

I must pick 7 people to bestow this honor upon. As you can imagine, it was not easy only picking seven. I had to leave out several buddies that I love to read. Please don't get mad, I could only pick 7 but I read everyone on my blogroll daily and love you all. I did follow the rules though. So, here goes:

Poker Girl In Vegas
Carmen is a really fun read. She talks about a wide variety of subjects from her very colorful past, to her job, to her bowling escapades to her love of poker. I've read her for quite a while and love her!

The Palm Isle
I just started reading Moe but I love him because he is hysterical and off the wall.

Life is Short, Partake in Happy Hour
I love Annie's Humor. She has the cutest little boy. If I'm ever in her neck of the woods you better believe I'll look her up!

Living and Loving
OMG I love Trixie to pieces!!! She is absolutely hilarious. Her adventures are insane and I would kill to hang out with her. If I'm in her neck of the woods, across the pond, you better believe I'm calling her. I'd come back with TONS of blog fodder for you all. lol
I've been reading Lisa for quite awhile and she is always on point with her dating advice and insight. She's not afraid to share pieces of her life either.

OMG! Mike is freaking insane! I love reading about his crazy antics. I have no idea how Trish deals with him. Love his blog!

Renaissance Black Woman
I love Eb's adventures. She is always at the hottest clubs and parties. I love the pictures she takes of these events. Her celebrity sightings are ridiculous.

More Of My Randomness

Just some of my recent random thoughts:

  1. Why is America's Got Talent judged by 2 Brits?
  2. Why does the Hummer have the leg room of a sardine can?
  3. Why was I having VERY inappropriate thoughts at the airport the other day about a really young guy (old enough to be my son) in Naval dress whites. Damn I love a man in uniform.
  4. Why is it when I have a house full of great food I love I race to eat all of said food in one sitting.
  5. I'm really debating whether or not I should break up with The Analyst.
  6. Why is it as soon as one of my coworkers opens her mouth I just want to punch her in it?
  7. Can I ever tell Clueless to kiss my ass and never call me and it not be awkward when I see her when we all hang out?
  8. Why when men hand wash dishes we women have to secretly go over the dishes and rewash them.....EVERY DAMN TIME.

My Weekend Wedding

Well blog buddies, I attended my uncle's wedding in GA. Yep, my uncle Peter that I blogged about got remarried this weekend and the entire family converged on GA.

It was actually a really nice wedding but you know I had some serious blog fodder for you upon my return.

First, when I am traveling on a plane, sitting in my seat with my eyes closed, that is not an invitation to engage me in a very mundane conversation. Leave me alone. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very friendly, people lovin' person but sometimes I just don't want to be bothered. If my eyes are closed...stay clear!

Secondly, these damn airlines are gouging us terribly and they are blaming it all on higher gas prices. This is ridiculous. They are using higher gas prices as an excuse to charge us for every little thing. USAirways charges you to check your bags. They also charge you for drinks now. This makes no sense at all. If gas prices go down will they return to offering us the same service they once did? I think not. How in the world can they in all good conscience charge us for sodas and juices? I am so upset about that I can't even see straight. USAirways can kiss my ass. Delta charges you $50 for a second checked bag. Bitches. At least they still give free peanuts and sodas.

Thirdly, my pain is the ass brother told me and my mother that he was going to pick her up at 9:00pm on Thursday to make the trip to GA. Can I tell you that he didn't get to her until 4:00am!!! She was in her room, sitting in her wheelchair, dressed, up all night from 9:00pm to 4:00am waiting for him!!! I can not tell you how heated I am about that. Would it have killed him to have called her to say he was not going to arrive until 4:00am? Everyone knows that if you tell my mother that you will be there at a certain time she will be ready and waiting for you. Oh I am so infuriated I can't even write. How are you going to have this woman sitting up all night waiting on you. The assisted living facility had to call to make sure someone was going to come get her because she was waiting so long. OOOOOHHHHH!!!!

What Was I Thinking?

This past Saturday, one of my close friends celebrated a birthday. She decided she wanted to go out dancing and of course I had to attend. I'm down for my friends. That's how I roll.

We get to said club, find our table and begin to do what we do best, order drinks and gossip. Mind you, it had been quite awhile since I'd attended a club. I was looking forward to having a nice girls night out.

As the music was pumping through the building I guess this guy was really feeling it because he was bold enough to walk across the room to our table full of women and ask me to dance risking certain humiliation. Of course I said yes. After all, the music was sounding really good.

We danced two songs and I thought I'd pass out. I told poor dude I had to sit the next one out. Uuuhhh, that NEVER happens to me. I can stay on the dance floor through song after song. Or at least I used to be able too.

After I told old boy I had to sit down I hyperventilated my way back to my chair and sat there panting for a good 45 minutes. My girl Crazy asked, "Do you want me to get you an oxygen mask?"

To which I responded, "Go to hell."

Not a good look.

There was this guy that I was sure forgot his meds for the day. He was on the dance floor doing aerobic moves. Dude, you are not at the gym. At one point he even danced a Russian folk dance. Oh yeah, he had all the ladies after him that night.

The server kept the drinks coming. Bless him.

I'm sure you are wondering what "Ignorantnomics" is. It's a term I coined yesterday actually after witnessing some really ignorant economic decisions made by some people.

Ignorantnomics is when you are 2 months behind in your mortgage/rent but when you win $12,000 in the lottery you buy a flat screen plasma TV instead.

Ignorantnomics is when your kitchen is falling apart and you decide to put a deck on the back of the house instead.

Ignorantnomics is when you and your kids need clothes and shoes but you buy rims for your car instead.

Watch Your Texts

I have a coworker "Mary". Mary has a husband "Gary". Gary calls Mary to give her a bit of news which she amusingly passed on to us.

Gary has a woman under his employ. She apparently was texting her husband. In one of the texts flowing back and forth the woman wrote, "Sure Honey, I can go tonight but let me leave now because Gary's being a Dick today and I don't want him to ruin this."

Guess what happened when she pressed Send on her phone? Yep, you guessed it, she inadvertedly sent the text message to Gary!

He called her into his office and poor girl just fell apart. LOL
