Oh No He Didn't

Several years ago when I was young, I went to this hot club that used to be in Baltimore but has long since met it's demise. It was a fun might with me and my girls.

I met this guy there. There was nothing about him that stood out. He was just an ordinary dude and that was fine. We exchanged phone numbers and talked on the phone a few times. He then decided to ask me out. I agreed thinking we'd have an enjoyable evening eating and going to a movie. The date ended up being OK. Nothing to write home about.

A couple of weeks roll by and we speak a few times on the phone but never managed to get another date together which was fine by me. Then all of a sudden he called me with the craziest request I still can't believe he asked me.

He called and started explaining how he had lost his job and was having difficulty where he was living and he needed to leave. I'm thinking to myself how unfortunate. You poor thing. I truly hope it all works out for you. After nothing more then an "I'm sorry" from me he then asks me if he could move in with me for a little while. Dude, did I just hear you right? You asked to move into my place and I've only seen you twice in my whole life? Are you kidding me? I don't even know your last name yet.

As nice as I could I simply said, " Uh, dude, I feel for your situation and all but this is a queendom in here and that's how it's going to stay."

Needless to say I never heard from him again. I wonder if he's still on the streets? Hmmmmm.....

You Pay This Time and I'll Get the Next One

I was talking to a guy friend of mine a few weeks ago and the subject of dating etiquette came up. He was upset and outraged that this chick he took out one night hadn't called him back after their date where he spent a whopping $200 on her. And got NO SEX. Dude was heated. I tried to comfort my friend by telling him that he should not spend that kind of money on a first date, especially with someone he barely knows.

I also told him he should have called her out on her foolishness. He should have simply said to her in a nice, calm, gentlemanly voice, "You know you are ordering from the ass side of the menu. You know what that means right? Unless you are planning on giving up some ass you had better stroll your butt back over to the left side of the menu." That would have given her a heads up as to what was going down later that night.

I'm just kidding but one thing I was serious about is that he should not have spent $200 on a first date with someone he didn't know if he was going to get upset if that was going to be their last date.

Ladies, is it OK to let a guy you are not interested in pay that kind of money on you if you knew you were going to blow him off?

I wouldn't. I'd feel so guilty. Let me give you an example of what goes on in my world. I met this guy once. We go on a first date. Things are OK but there is no chemistry. He asks me for a second date and I agreed thinking I'd give it another chance to see if he grows on me. He spent a lot of money on that second date and I was feeling all kinds of guilty because I knew it wasn't going to work and I was going to blow him off. Once I saw the check I was floored so I did what any self respecting non gold digger does. I invited him out on another date which I paid for (a lot too I might add) to level the playing field so that when I blew his ass off he wouldn't feel all used and abused because he spent a wad of cash and I blew him off. See?! Problem solved. He didn't feel used and I didn't feel like a heel in the process.

Guys have you spent a load of cash on a woman and she blew you off afterward? Ladies, did you let some poor sap foot an exorbitant bill only to duck and dodge him afterwards?

What I Did Yesterday

Hello All. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had a very nice and quiet weekend. I dog sat this weekend as my brother went to New Orleans with his girlfriend. The dog was actually well behaved and that's saying something for him! lol

Anyway, yesterday I took the train to New York to view a live taping of the Wendy Williams show. For those of you who do not know who she is, take a look.
She's a national talk show host who used to have her own radio show. She's the self proclaimed queen of all media. I have to admit when she was on the radio as popular as she was I didn't like her because I thought she was a very mean spirited person. But since I have started watching her show I have grown to love her! She dishes as if she is your best girlfriend sitting on your sofa.

I live tweeted from the show so these are pics I took from my camera phone and posted on twitter and I thought I'd share with you.

Here is my entry ticket into the show.

We had to go through a metal detector to make sure we weren't packing any heat.

We were led into a pretty decent audience waiting room.

Then after waiting for awhile we were all herded into the studio.

Initially, I was seated a couple of rows from the front. SCORE!!! I was a sure-in to be on camera then all of a sudden the audience seating bitch comes and tells me to move and sat me close to the back. I was heated. I was the third person in line and I wind up in the back. I was sooo not happy about that.

Seating issues aside I had a blast. The studio was as small as I had suspected it to be and Wendy was a load of fun.

Wendy, when I come back to your studio please tell the audience seating bitch that I will not be seated in the back again!

Love you Wendy!!

Should I/Shouldn't I?

Hey guys. Sorry I've been MIA lately. Been kinda crazy around these parts. Well Sunday was Mothers Day as we all know. Clueless' friend Officer S decided to have a cook out at her house and invited me. I thought "what the heck" and went to the cook out. My initial plans for the day were to just hold up at the house and stay put to avoid anything mother day-ee. ( I know that's not a word but work with me! lol)

There were a few people there when I arrived. I sat in the kitchen with Clueless and chatted away with her and Officer S's family that was also there. It was all pretty pleasant at first.

I was introduced to both of Officer S's brothers. Immediately I could tell that one of them took a liking to me. Every time I looked in his direction he was staring at me. When I wasn't looking at him I could feel his eye on me. He was kinda cute but not my type. Plus Officer S and I hang out every once in a awhile. It would be weird as hell to be out with her and have her know that I was boning her brother. Too weird for me.

As I was saying my good bye's so that I could leave he made his move. He handed me a business card and told me to call him. I placed that card on my dresser and there it lays.

Is it weird to date an associates sibling? Am I the only one that would think it weird to hang with her knowing I'm dating her brother and she'd probably be privy to some personal stuff I wouldn't want her to know? Hmmmm...

On another subject, I got my hair done this past weekend. My hair is thinning so I decided to give it a rest for the first time ever and get some hair extensions sewn onto my head. It's weird because I never did this before but I must tell you I love it.

What's even weirder is that NOT ONE person suspected I was wearing hair extensions. No one mentioned my hair was different or asked what I did to my hair or anything. No one! I thought for sure people at work would realize I had extra hair. LOL I don't know what to think.

All I know is my weavologist is awesome!!!!!!

I Got Something To Get Off My Chest

I got a couple of pet peeves that just irritate the bejeesus out of me. I wrote about one of them before actually.

One pet peeve of mine is when I am walking down the street and some random dude takes it upon himself to say to me, "Smile." Smile?! Dude you don't know me. If I wanted to smile I'd be smiling. Am I supposed to just walk around all day every day with a goofy ass grin on my face? Uh, no! So word to the wise, if you see me walking down the street and I'm not smiling, keep it moving or else there may be a situation. Men, let me give you a peice of advice, we women never like it when you tell us to smile. Never. That makes the hairs on the back of our neck raise. Well, maybe just my hairs but you get the point. Just keep it moving to be on the safe side mkay?

Second pet peele is someone spitting on the ground. I've mentioned this one before. That crap makes my skin crawl. UGH! I think I'm going to bitch slap the next person that spits on the ground around me.

You ever have one of those days were everyone around you just make it their mission to tap dance on your last nerve?

I So Want To Be You

Everyday, a few of my coworkers and I gather around this kick ass wall mounted plasma TV in our lunch room and watch our soaps. Don't judge me!

I've tried to figure out a way I can liberate that TV from the lunch room and set it free at my house without anyone knowing it was me but I still got nothing but I digress.

One of our favorites to watch is The Bold and the Beautiful. It has this woman (Leslie Ann Downes) that plays a character named Jackie Marone. Can I say I LOVE HER! She is sexy and seductive and has a body to die for and she is 56! Yes, you read that correctly, she is 56.

She is married to this character named Owen who is this super sexy thirty something eye candy. Wow.

If you don't know who she is, take a look:

I want to be her when I grow up.
