That's what I like about you Blu. Always thinking.

Hey, I hang my hat on the concept of "continuous improvement". If I was doing something wrong, you'd have to tell me. Hell, draw me a map if you have to. I can follow a map don't cha know. It's all about getting it right.

Of course, if a woman changes things we'd have to practice to make sure I got it right.

It's a milestone and you're happy with who you've become. Celebrate it girl!

"How come I listen to songs on repeat like 15 times?"

It must be a new song that you enjoy. I do that too!

"I submitted my application to volunteer at the Women’s Center. I’m anxiously waiting to hear from them."

Giving from our overflow of God's goodness is always a beautiful thing!

"Gospel music is so wonderful to wake up to…even at 4:30am."

Gospel is good anytime!

Be careful what you wish for. I have the summer off, but I can't find anything to do with all the time right now. I need a hobby!

I’m so disgusted with the radio that I rarely even listen to it.

Now this is priceless. Have you ever tried pandora.com. It's supposed to tailor music to your tastes. I need a young, black, laid back, male station.

Greetings, sis!

How come all of these apply to me as well, except the one about T-Pain (I'm not a hip hop fan in general)? Love the one about turning the BIG 4-0. I have about a year and a half to go, and I can't wait! I told myself I'm going to be physically fit, healthy, happy, and sexy at 40, and damnit, I mean it! LOL! (Huff, puff; getting my aerobics and meditation on).

LOL @ Terry! Draw me a map...

I'm gonna miss you; but I gotcha back while you're gone. Don't stay away too long, momma!

My favorite gospel jam(s) is/are "Wholly Holy" and "Higher Mountains" by Aretha Franklin and the Southern California Community Choir. I love that album "Amazing Grace" by her.

Debo Blue said...

I too listen to the same song over and over. I plug my iPod to repeat and I'm there 'til I'm dumb.

Happy 40th, let me testify. When I hit 40 I too a cruise to Hawaii and lived it up.

Hope your week off is cool, relaxing and fulfilling (that you find a prom dress).

Dont be ashamed, I like that T-Pain song too.

Getting the summer off is good. This is going to be the last summer I get off and I wont even get a chance to enjoy it!!

Ali's Zay said...

Have fun in JA. Meeting you was so special. You just don’t know. I know you will be an incredible asset to the Women’s Center.

The big 40... Let me just say that you look outstanding!

"I really like txting..hate not hearing the tone of the person at times though" - me too lady. me too.

"Y&R is so annoying/frustrating right now, but I still watch is faithfully. What the hell does that say about me?" - i do the same thing. go home for lunch to watch and end up rolling my eyes the whole time. you're not alone blu.

"How come I listen to songs on repeat like 15 times?" - same here!!!

I love random thoughts!

blaqrayne said...

YOU like texting? I find that hard to believe. Better be Verizon to Verizon...lol. LMAO @ Daniel and ur whole Y&R rant. I can't remember what else I was gonna say. This was quite amusing though.

YouToldHarpoTaBeatMe said...

Don't feel bad. I have a hard time liking OPK's too, especially if you read my last entry. If I really like a song, I'll listen to it all day. I'm stuck on 'buy you a drank' too.... to the point that I embarass the hell out of my daughter on "AWWWWWW SNAP!" LoL "This is the day" by Fred Hammond is my favorite gospel pick-me-up song as of late, so I understand.
