sippin on some Theraflu.. waiting on the snow

Well I'm becoming more comfortable w/ blogger and.. its cool I really miss my "what am I reading/watching/listening" to portion that was integrated w/ Xanga posts.. I know there has to be some html/javascript code or something that can allow me to put that back in my blog so if you know if any please let me know cuz I like sharing with the world my diverse tastes...

Here's the manual version of what I'm listening to: Allison Crocket- Return of Diva Blue- 11-track CD album comprising a collection of remixes based on tracks from her debut album 'On Becoming A Woman' - a sensuous soul tour de force that blended elements of Jill Scott, Meshell N'degeocello & UK broken beat visionaries 4-Hero; featuring mixes by a who's who of top flight DJ producers including DJ Spinna, Yam Who?, Phil Asher, Mark De Clive-Lowe, Waiwan, Landslide and more. Kudos Records. 2006. * Vinyl pressing also available.

I'm trying to get in the habit of blogging daily or at least writing something everyday its getting better.. I really need to work on my poem compilation cuz my one word doc of poems is getting OC its like 30pages and i have slips of paper all over the house of pieces of poems I've started and left alone not cool at all.. and speaking of poetry my fav poet of all time is coming to do a speech at UDC tomorrow.. Nikki Giovanni. I'm excited but kinda of scared b/c of the inclement weather strolling through DC.. like i know if i don't go to work im not going all the way UPT to UDC but.. she released a new book last month so she's currently promoting that joint..


I realized I'm a chain smoker.. that is I light insents back 2 back 2 back 2 back lol... I have issues. I normally buy 3 bags at my shop (shout outs to Herbal Essence @ pg plaza) every payday and normally I'm empty prior to getting paid again.. sad!!


My god-son has not been born yet he's officially one day late now!! I'm like it would be cute for him to be born tomorrow V-day but um.. I can't get to Ft. Belvoir hospital in the icy conditions and I think its kinda gay for a male to be born in v-day so lets shoot for 15 Feb.. but this boy man his knocking knocking on being a Pisces (Feb 19th) vs Aquarius.. and trust having two Aries parents (god bless the boy.. he'll need to be a aloof to survive them and not be an emotional water sign).. but I'll think he'll be here in a few days..

Friday I'm going to a 70's Jam. I can't comment on my outfit for free that other people going will see my post and copy my vicious outfit but trust the fro will be on display!!


On a serious not before I go.. I been having mad turmoil in my life re: the heart and soul of me: my job :( Now i just had my 1 year anniversary as being a contractor on 6 Feb and a week later my boss sat me down and said after 28 Feb my component of our current NON EXPIRING contract was being removed.. with out getting into all the details why; its not really the companies fault but this agency which i won't name because I don't want to be on the front page of the post as " lady fired from agency for frying them in a blog" lmao but this agency is very unorganized in the way they wish to manage contracts. Needless to say this hurt my first time being a contractor and this is what they always warn you about- the instability of it all.. So my boss is working hard looking for opportunities within our company because they don't want to loose me and I know she is trying hard for a young sister because she called me at home to give me a daily update and I appreciate that. But in the meantime I have to look out for me just incase all things go bad. My friends (monster/hotjobs/dice) have been good to me again.. My goal was 10 apps a week and I did 5 today and by time i got home I had 3 email inquiries and 1 phone call (one place was really pressed) and i know its the clearance that keeps me afloat but now I look in the lessons in all these roadblocks in my life, instead of being emotional upset and although this was my 1st time being a contractor I have been working at this agency for 5 years (June 07) and i got spurned on the gov't side and now this situation as a ctr.. so I"m like is God trying to push me out? I know I'm VERY comfortable there.. like i have great friends and this place is relaxed in all aspects like as long as you do your work, don't disrespect nobody you will be aight taking a long lunch.. aight getting to work late.. aight leaving early ya'll know the gov't but again I'm looking at these new opportunities and trying to not be scared of the change because I really am.. and on that note I"m out cuz this theraflu has me feeling good.. feeling great!

I'm glad you moved over from xanga. I don't like the idea of having to join in order to be able to leave comments. ;) And I like the fact that I'm on your blogroll. Thanks!
