Let’s see… Last day I posted was on my birthday, so let’s start there.
My actual birthday was nice and chill. My co-workers threw me a nice little party at work. They decorated my desk for me and put on a little pot-luck luncheon. After work, GTL cooked for me, and we spent the evening watching my favorite shows. (The week of my birthday was the season premiere for most prime time shows and I was in heaven!!!)
My birthday party was that Friday (the 28th.) I was very beautiful and very drunk!!!
I got my hair dyed (semi-permanently) black. GTL loves it. And my hair looks so healthy with it. As you can tell, I wore all silver (because I was turning a quarter :-) ) GTL got the limo for me and my girls and we enjoyed not having to drive and just bugging out on the way down. I don’t really remember much of what happened that night, as I was drunk out of my mind. Every time I turned around, someone else was giving me a Hennessy on the rocks (Thanks KnowOne for that double shot!!!) Over the next week, my friends had to tell me what happened: I was on the mic telling everyone that it was MY birthday and happy birthday to ME. (I totally said fuck you to the other 2 girls that were celebrating their birthday with me. LOL) I was on the dance floor all night. I cursing in the mic… My mother came over to me and told me to stop, I told her I would, and as soon as she turned her back, I was at it again. LOL. I had a freaking blast at my party, only regret – the location. I personally didn’t think it was that far, but apparently some people did. We had a nice turnout, I was just expecting more people to come. Pictures are on the website: www.tnjpromotions.com
Being a Big Sister
I have a new little sister. As you can remember, the last match just didn’t go well at all. My new little sister is 15. Her name is Tiffany as well. She’s cool. She actually has 2 older sisters, but wanted to sign up because they don’t spend time with her and she apparently likes attention. We hung out once so far. Don’t really talk on the phone that much, which is surprising because I just knew she would call me all the damn time! (no complaints, though) She does well in school, only thing is, she’s VERY opinionated. Don’t get me wrong, I think that it’s great that she can think on her own, but sometimes, she doesn’t know when to keep her opinion to herself. She seems to must have the last word, all the time. Which causes her to get in trouble a lot in school. So I think my goal w/ her will be to learn when to speak up, and when to shut up. LOL
I still love my truck! But right now, I’m missing my truck! Two Fridays ago, I was taking a break and headed to my grandmother’s really quick to pick something up and come right back when going around the curve…. BAM! This bitch comes over the yellow and hits me. Now I saw her coming, so when she was approaching, I attempted to honk my horn and steer away from her, so we didn’t hit head on, just both driver side headlights hit each other. With that impact, my truck was headed to the guardrail on my side of the street so I turned back left and in the process, sideswiped a third vehicle and ended up in the guardrail on the opposite side of the street. Most importantly, I’m not hurt. And trust me, I understand it could’ve been a lot worse and I am VERY THANKFUL that it was not…. BUT! When I hopped out my truck and looked at it. I wanted to cry.
I couldn’t go near the bitch that caused the accident cause I would’ve cursed her out, maybe even hit her ass! The third driver went over to check on her, came back and told me that she fell asleep behind the wheel. WTF?!?! HTF?!?!? She just came around a fucking curve, how the hell she fall asleep so damn fast?? She admitted that to the cops as well, so in the report, it shows that she’s at fault. Her shit is probably totaled.
And so is the other car.
Both of their axels got fucked up. Luckily I have no frame damage… Although my damages come to like $15K, it’s not totaled. :-) But I will be without it for AT LEAST a month. They told me not to look for it before Thanksgiving. ***SIGH***
Marathon / Morgan’s Homecoming
Last weekend was Morgan’s Homecoming… and also the Baltimore Marathon. My Twin and my TE ran in the Baltimore Marathon Saturday morning to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
They joined about 14,000 people in this race. Some ran 26 miles, they ran 13 miles.
I went down to support them. I saw them start and finish the race. And in between my brother (Twin’s boyfriend) and I walked the harbor trying to figure out where to eat, and then finally decided on a spot in Power Plant Live.
That night, GTL and I went to Houlihan’s for what will be an annual dinner and drinks with Organized Noise and whatever Baltimore/DC bloggers may want to attend. This year’s group was smaller than last year’s, but we still had a great time. We had the same bartender as last year, and GTL, Organized Noise, TE, Honey-Libra, Friend of Honey-Libra, and I ate well and drank plenty!
Next party on the agenda… GTL’s birthday. It’s going to be on Friday, November 16th. Don’t my baby look cute? All GQ, with a little thug in him! LMAO!!!
I start school next week. I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not looking forward to it. I’m taking two classes. The one is an independent learning course (because they weren’t offering the course that I needed) I knew I was going to have to write a paper… but damn I ain’t expect it to be like this!! I have to write a 35-page-minimum paper… and have a 20 minute presentation to go along with it. BS!!! My other course should be able to prepare me for a certification (that I don’t want! LOL) with quizzes, and exam, a paper, and presentation. Luckily, this paper/presentation is a group project, so I won’t be too swamped! Wish me luck ya’ll, I’m trying to graduate w/ a 4.0, but these classes may fuck that up!
Sorry to report… my blog reading/writing will continue to be far and few in between. My job is TRIPPING about our internet usage. It’s OK to check our email from time to time. But we can’t leave the web open all day long, and we can’t go to non-email/non-work-related websites. When I get home, I don’t want to be bothered with the computer because I have to look at it all day while at work!
Which reminds me, I’m getting a little promotion :-) One of our leads is going to another department and I’ll be taking over… that’s great for me because I get off the phones!!!!!
I think I filled you guys in on everything. I read the most recent post for you guys this weekend… I miss reading you guys!!! **SIGH** OK, good-bye.
