More thoughts…about well…thoughts.

September 22, 2009

So, I forgot to parlay this last night when I was scribbling the post down and here we go you’ve lucked out and there’s two posts in a row.

I had a great conversation with a girlfriend the other day. It was odd because I didn’t want her to think that I was being overbearing but it came down to talking about her dating life. She started telling me of how she’s given up on marriage and doing okay with being alone. I didn’t quite understand why she had dismissed meeting people online.

It’s odd, I don’t quite know how to explain it, but I have met more of my favorite people online than anywhere else. My first love, my first kiss, my first…well, just about all my firsts were with people online. It wasn’t an obsession, it was a cure for me for whatever reason. When I had first met my first love, I gotta tell you it was something that was so tender, so sweet, that I still hold guys to that truth today. It’s a gentle balance between taking care of me and allowing me to be independent.

I have been thinking an awful lot anymore about my friends online, and I got to tell you it made my day today when another came out of this internet swarm to show back up into my life. It was nice, almost wonderful.

It’s been a while since I’ve allowed myself just to be happy. Just for shits and giggles.

Perhaps I need to try this.


A Post that wasn’t meant to be…

November 15, 2008

So, I initially was going to write about my current ongoing obsession of the Twilight movie that’s coming out, but today was a bit of a shock to me. I initially was going to write how crazy people can be.

One of my girls got hit by a car today. Thankfully, she’s fine, but I’m sure it scared her shitless. Scared me! I felt bad that she was by herself. That’s all. She went to the hospital, and the shoutout went out that something happened, I think it scared us all a little bit. But, it made me happy that she was okay, and is now resting comfortably. As shaken I was by the incident that might not have been, I must admit when I ordered take out from a great place that is here in Baltimore, they didn’t give me a total over the phone. So, I figured that $20 would be worth it. Well, it was $20.75, and the guy was so nice he said, “Don’t worry about it.” Didn’t take a tip or anything.

I felt terrible and wildly proud of my city and the area I’m from more than anything.

So, thank goodness M I’m glad you’re okay. What a day!

Happy Birthday Girlfriend!!!

February 6, 2008

You know, I have been realizing recently that I have known my girl Laurel for a long time now. She lived through my heart surgery, the recovery, her leaving for pharmacy school, my hemming and hawing about going back to grad school. She’s lived through countless boyfriends, an ex-husband, and you know what?

Everytime I talk or email her, it’s as if we have just left off. When we see each other, it’s as if things have just been the same since they were in 1998.

Her birthday is today. In the gracefulness of the day, I am hopeful that she went out and got trashed last night, and is either reading this from the luxury of her bedroom, or doesn’t have too much to do today at work. She has given me strength, hope, and calm, for 10 years now. I am forever grateful that she’s in my life, and that she walks the path she does on a daily basis. She has given me credence to know that it’s okay to be the person you are. That even if you try and hide it, you really can’t. She’s the type that will run you into a wall because she knows you can break it down. It’s weird. There’s just no uncertainty from her. That’s just how it goes.

So, I sent her a pie from Dangerously Delicious Pies here in Baltimore. I figured that I might as well do something that’s so authentically Baltimore, and authentically urban, she couldn’t resist it. Then, I go back to check my email and find out that she’s not into the chocolate! I was doomed. I went out and got her something else, and sent it out too. But, she liked the pie!!! Go Dangerously delisch!!!! (Pssst…it was the Mobtown Brown, TRY IT!!! SOOO WORTH IT!) So, two presents in once. 🙂 I can’t be happier.

So, happy birthday Laurel. Thank you for your friendship and for being you. I don’t know what I could do without ya. 🙂 This is for all those birthdays that I was a loser and either forgot or didn’t have money.
