Today I….

  • am feeling pretty random.
  • got up at 4 a.m. to work on a paper that’s due today.  I’m still not finished.
  • deleted a friend from FB.  I’m cool with her having differing political views, but not cool with the volume and spirit of anti-Obama stuff she posts.
  • am actually putting in a decent day’s work.  A statement I totally realize is not supported by my mid-day blogging.
  • think I’m going to call my instructor.  Joker gave me 100 points on a paper and then took 50 of them away because I missed a class session.  Aargh!
  • happened to be perusing the L.A. Times webpage and ran across an article in which my cousin is mentioned.  If you’ve been reading for a while you may remember my mentioning a cousin who’s been in jail for quite a while – for murder.  Yeah.  If you’re interested in reading go here:  http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-witness20-2009oct20,0,7565367.story.
  • am listening to my “blue eyed soul” station on P.andora.  I love Hall & Oates!  And Phil Collins.  And Michael McDonald.
  • am asking for prayer for my cousin who is undergoing surgery for two different types of cancers today.  I don’t believe that her prognosis is good.
  • need to hide Lovegirl’s harmonica.  She cashed in her arcade tickets to get the thing, and between her using the Spanish pronunciation of “ar-moan-ica” and her incessant desire to practice, I’m going slightly batty.
  • am contemplating buying a pair of boots.  I waited too long on some I’d previously spotted and missed out.  I need to make a move before every single pair of 12N boots disappears!  I think there are only like what 10 or 11 made each year.
  • might slap my co-worker.  She’s upset because the doctor may put her short, round, BMI index of 34, son on a diet.  I’m upset that he’s not already on one.

What’re you up to today?

  1. Wow…that LA Times article was something. Tragic for all involved, especially Khristina. My husband and I recently had a very heated discussion about when to stand up for yourself and when to let things go. His view is that a tragedy like this is to be avoided at all costs while I say you cannot always be a doormat. I guess you have to do what feels right to you at the time.

  2. That blue eyed soul station sounds pretty good. i might have to make me one of those…right after I make my 80’s synth rock station… Duran Duran, and them…

    I don’t have any FB friends that express anti-Obama sentiment. I don’t think they would stay friends for long.

    Maybe the co worker can take her kid to Maury when they have the unnaturally big kids on..

  3. Re: facebook friends. I put up something positive about a client in a FB status and someone commented on it with something negative. 1st) that’s my client, so respect my damn job. 2nd) I haven’t seen this person since high school and, save for FB had forgot they existed. You know where this is going. I deleted him so fast I forgot we were FB to begin with.

    And you can’t find me on FB. If we’re not friends, it’s like I don’t even have a page. I keep my FB security on lock. LOL!

  4. Love my “Light” Soul Station! *lol* I’ve got everyone you mentioned plus James Taylor, the Doobie Brothers and a few others. Right now, I’m rocking to my “All 90’s” Station with CeCe Peniston, Jade, SWV, Black Girl, etc.

  5. I really enjoy LA Times series. I find them really engaging. Is it surreal to know someone who’s in one? Nordstrom has great sales on the less popular sizes several times a year. GREAT sales! I’m always a little jealous b/c those sales last longer than the sales for my size. but then i get over it. i deleted a person who was unnecessarily nasty about Obama, too. Like you said, you don’t have to like him, but you also don’t have to be so nasty. Def. LOL @ lovegirl’s spanish ar-moan-ica. LOLOLOL!

    • The whole situation is awful. I just happened to be reading – I was quite shocked when I realized it my cousin’s case that was being profiled.

      I cannot believe I didn’t go to Nordstrom when I was home this month. I usually hit up The Rack and score major shoes for minor money.
