things im feeling

..so yall know I just became a huge vocal trance fan the last few months and the king of trance is Armin van Burnin so of course being a black person loving electronic friends are always like yuck when it comes to trying out techno clubs..I only got them to go to town danceboutique because of the draq queen shows, but if you are talking glowsticks, foam and black lights- I'll get the "ill pass" responses. According to my Asian co-worker back in the day (90's lol) DC used to have many spots for that type of party Nations etc but just like the classic go-go spots its all shut down. She's now over 30 and married so she can't hang out with me like she wants so the point of my story is I just become a fan (thanks Facebook) of Glow (Fur-transformed into dance club) and I see this posting from 19 March

Glow Washington DC The #1 DJ in the world ARMIN VAN BUUREN live tonight @ Glow. Tickets will be available at the door. www.ClubGlow.com for more info

Mad as a mofo out here... I would went to that event ALONE if had to. Anyway I will be checking out this Glow place see how it compares to town and hopefully my bff will come she like dance music but won't go to Town because its a gay club and that's against her religion (not even getting into that story) im like uhhh dance clubs=gay guys .

Anyway.. feeling good in a great mood knocked out a bunch of spring cleaning this AM. About to get my locs retwisted soon as my girl wakes up and come through so before I wash my hair here are things I'm feeling:

Don't know if I posted it but for lent I went back on raw food/vegan - 1 hot meal a day fast && also gave up shopping so I'm digging these:

Raw Revolution Live Food Bar
the coconut & agave nectar - yumm
spirulina & cashew- yumm tasty way of getting some algae into the system lol

:sidebar for the fast and forever no more eating honey as technically its an animal by products the agave nectar is good very sweet not alot is needed read up on what exactly it is here

Dooney & Burke Rolling Trunk- $325
LOL being press since I'm an international travel star now I want a nice piece of lux (carry on) luggage- I would not bread on something nice that could be stolen for me to have to kirk on the airline. The price is not bad but my aunt reviewed the measurements and shes like its TINY L 13.75" W 8.5" H 19.5". I would only want to carry laptop or 2, electronics, maybe 1 outfit and 1 pair of shoes.. still debating this one

Coach Bonnie Cashin Line
Can't never say Coach has fallen off.. they price still seem to be flatlined at to me LV rates but there stuff is hella cute. I was at Pentagon City yesterday when I walked in (looking) very impressed.

Scarfs are like my new fav accessory going nuts for them.. I'm planing to save for Hermes scarf for le birthday but meanwhile.. this LV hair scarf is calling me.. man I'd be killing them and this would be so cute with me locs.. HMMM

Last item my new glasses have arrived I can't even get into the story about these things.. lets just say they are discontinued and I had to go through at least 6 sites before I found one who had them in stock. When Caplady wants something she will search the world for it LOL
YSL- Yves Saint Laurent

These are replacing these Fendis had them for about 2 years then all of sudden seen too many bammas in the area with them.. gotta keep it original ova here

one thing I forgot to i'm addicting to nu-jazz (remixed, electric, acid) in particular my Jazz Diva's been downloading oops acquiring albums like crazy

just saying wzup

no I haven't been igg'n the readers.. just been ultra busy again idk where my time goes between the 40-50 hrs at work, hanging with my friends and me-time- keeps the days rolling

cooling out to this VH1 Soul Eykah Badu concert- she is so great live .. esp when she rocks out with the Roots which is usually the case.

I'm up here doing my normal thing working on a broken laptop (Compaq/HP) no surprise there LOL gave up trying to remove the viruses joint crashed too much- doing a full reformat reload of windows XP.

Lets see I don't have a list of topics like normal.. I hope you all have been enjoying the twitter updates put you right in mix of the day to day action of caplady LOL.

Last weekend I went to the circus with my lil god-son, hadn't been to circus I'm guessing since I was a wee-girl. It was fun but expensive time animals were cute! Porkupine, lions, horses, Elephants lil dude payed attention about 70% which is great for a 2yr old. Went uptown DC afterwards got that man his first peice of DC local gear from Universal Madness.
His mama already know he not going be dressed like VA bamma (no offense to my 703 friends) when he's out in PG with me LOL.

Week before that I visited a wine bar for happy hour in my favorite part of DC- UPtown NW..Vinoteca

The place was great.. happy hour was not overly packed, dinner was good. I don't consider myself a wine head but my friends made me sip and I ended up liking the Merlot (red wine).. def want to go back there and try some more wines.

I'm working on my travel orders for Europe- Germany; love the fact job is exposing me to international travel more on the trip as it unfolds.
Can't believe spring is here (in theory not in temperature lol) working on LA trip 4th of July weekend with my besti that would ROCK..I just wanna visit the shops on Rodeo Drive.

Welp let me go finish up my work watch a lil NBA action..

daylight savings yooo

hurting over here ...esp since I've been going in early all week rising at 5am is 4am.. but I"m happy now its not dark when I get home.

Quick post on my brother President Obama and his contracting reform. Now as a gov't ctr I'm not against change for defense done correctly apparently my girl said Obama is a defense hater lol and likes homeland (they suck lol). I'm anxious to hear how the 60 day cybersecurity review results turn out and also I'm following this new memo issued by the White House- Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies Subject: Government Contracting

2 points I want to make before I hit the sack.

#1- Lets AUDIT the gov't first before we blame cost over runs and mis-management on contracting firms. I can say for my DIVISION we only have 1 government InfoSec person and he got thrown into the role; hates it and although they sent him to random training he is not embracing the jobs. Our division and directorate IAM are both contractors. I know 2 other govvies at my agency thrown into InfoSec roles one has high school education, hates on those with degrees refuses to get a CISSP and she's the Alternative-IAM. I know another Alt-IAM she and I talk fashion all day long but let me ask a work questions and "she like I'll get back to you" another govvie. I'm saying this a tiny example on the whole schema of the federal gvt but just examples of what I'm surrounded by. Wholetime we have a IA contractor team at the level above me making $150/an hour who are hardly working so again, scrutiny needs to happen on both sides of the fence.

Moreover, it is essential that the Federal Government have the capacity to carry out robust and thorough management and oversight of its contracts in order to achieve programmatic goals, avoid significant overcharges, and curb wasteful spending. A GAO study last year of 95 major defense acquisitions projects found cost overruns of 26 percent, totaling $295 billion over the life of the projects. Improved contract oversight could reduce such sums significantly.

#2- In response to this quote taken from the executive memo. I'm sorry I'm like blame the gvt on MOST of this issue. Like I joke around but this stuff really happens LOL.

gvt: We need new fighter planes
ctr: what kind?
gvt: not sure it needs to be big
ctr: how big?
gvt: not sure it needs to have 30 missiles each that can be self guided through a cpu on the plane.
ctr: anything else?
gvt: yes make sure the plane changes colors depending on its enviorment

so they allot 20 billion dollars for the plane to be built 2 years later than scheduled and only half the requirements fulfilled.

LOL this is an extreme example but acquisition education is important no matter if its weapon systems, or people I myself need to get past only knowing Acquisition 101 because I believe understanding this will be important skill set in the Obama era.
