watch this, robocop!

Orlando & I bought a $1 DVD from WalMart not too long ago & to our surprise, it turned out to be hilarious! I highly recommend this movie to anyone with a sense of humor... gotta love the 90's (this is from `91). why is it that every movie from and around this time period needed a dance sequence in it?! regardless, it went above&beyond my expectations -- 5 stars, most definitely! here's a few clips i've been laughing endlessly at through youtube... but for the real belly aching effects, you MUST watch the entire film.

how can you NOT want to see this after i've teased you with these videos?
the movie is called Breathing Fire so get it ASAP. if you're unsatisfied, i'll refund you & then buy you a Twilight movie ticket instead (don't even get me started).

on another note, yesterday, Jeet & I worked out intensely for 2+ hours and now my body is pissed at me. i swear, every muscle i call my own is aching in its own way. sitting down hurts and if i even think about lifting my arms up/my hands up over my head, i might just tear apart. even though i feel this terrible, there's something about it that i love... it makes me want to do it over & over again. now, i'm not new to the exercises we did, i suppose it was only because we did so much at one time. i'm in pain but i'm happy about it -- i almost wish it wouldn't leave.


20... in a nutshell.

sickness pt. II (and small rants)

i'm feeling worse! i've washed my hands so many times my skin feels like a raisin (middle finger to work). that's my smallest problem. the regular symptoms for a cold, flu, or whatever have taken over my body... maybe i jinxed myself?

this cat needs to be distempered before i throw him out the window.

HAPPY [belated] BIRTHDAY to my favorite 4 year old niece, Elly.
I miss you, babyboo -- Tita Bus has a present coming for you :)

today i got in a small, but still annoying, confrontation with my boss. early in my shift he told me to finish the sweet tea and the new manager in training said, or what i heard, "it's done." so i let it go, assuming it was finished.. to my surprise, it was NOT and when i defended myself saying she had gotten to it before i did, she said.. "oh no honey, i said, 'i done finish'" --> translation, "oh no honey, i said, I DIDN'T FINISH."

fuck America and its inability to form coherent, grammatically correct sentences.


in a box, and at the riot.

i feel like i'm trapped in something way too routine. my weeks have been flying by but only because it's gotten so monotonous lately. there are the occasional good moments here and there but there's nothing left for me to do. maybe my seasonal depression is kicking in, but it's too soon to say since the weather can't make up its own mind. here in richmond, i feel displaced from everything. it's only been like this for a couple of months because last year was such drastic change from virginia beach. i don't know what i wanna do in any aspects so i feel entirely too itchy.

(new favorite)
i figured i'd post some pictures to lighten the mood. my internet isn't throwing an attitude problem so that's nice. yesterday i went through an unbearable headache... must've been because i was yelling at the cats so damn much.

tuesday night was insane! after the news about Obama being the president elect, VCU went crazy. about 5,000 people ran outside and blocked off Main St, Belvidere, and Broad (sherita & i were on broad). the cops weren't even doing anything, the news said they were happy about the riots. people were climbing poles, jumping on cars, playing drums, and chanting for obama. i've never been in one of those before, reeeeally super cool -- for lack of better adjectives. [[ bad picture, but i'll try to get videos up. they're better quality. ]]

i feel ugly. soooo, turbo time.


on the road again

my body is sore all over. this is an awesome feeling, no lie.

i'm going home again today. when i decide to drive, it becomes serious business. i'm either driving down the street for 2 minutes or across cities for 2 hours -- i've gotten used to sitting down and staring at roads. today will be a rushed & hectic kind of day.. i get paid & i have to get down to VB by 3 for an oil change meaning i'll either have to hurry to the bank before class, after class, or after my appointment so i'll have enough time to buy speez's baby shower gift. it's a boy... i've never had to shop for one! :) he's definitely going to be spoiled hahah.

this is my favorite part of driving in the fall.
when the leaves change color
and there are still hints of green left...
like summer is trying to remind us that
it actually did exist.
... and it'll come again.

people become so wrapped up in their lives that they see things idealistically. sometimes we have to step outside of ourselves and look at how others see us before we lose any potential greatness. i forget that... how much can a person take before they realize a better something was there all along? in the past few days, however, i've been more concerned about this than anything else. where's my life going? "why?" the why why why's. maybe i'm not emotional or sensitive, maybe i'm only human.
being human has it's limitations.


so, yeah.

i haven't posted anything in over a month.

i haven't been home since then, either.

speaking of home, i'm going home this friday. orlando is coming with me. things between us are kind of weird... really. he's scared to say anything cause it'll hurt my feelings. actually, it's always been like this (where he'll speak harshly and i'll cry about it later HAHA) but i guess now i'm just more open about it? what does he expect? i just wish things weren't so awkward right now. he still makes me laugh and we still have fun together, but now it's just -- different.

i was super smacked last night. off of only ONE mthrf'n hit. i kept seeing things and my surroundings kept turning and spinning. it was fun until that happened. but it was the cutest experience i've ever had inebriated.. it felt like i was in a dollhouse town. i felt like i shrank and was playing in a fake town -- i guess that's just how Richmond looks with the old style houses and what not. eventually, i had to lie down but even with my eyes closed i saw some psychadelic shit. CRAzY.

work is going okay. the pay is starting to catch up with my lavish lifestyle (sike). i need more money than i'm making or more self-control than i have but the latter is probably not going to happen until i feel the pain of being on my own; when the pops stops paying my credit card :(. orlando says i "need to get on point" and look for internships or some other job where i'm getting paid more than i am currently and try to sit on my ass all day to make money. but see, i like moving around and talking to people during work... that's the best part, the interaction. but i have been looking on craigslist and i've found a few server positions... nothing along the lines of an internship though. if i turn to waitressing, then i'll be making tips and that's instant money i can take home after the end of my shift so i wont have to wait for a biweekly paycheck... just the $2-3 that's guaranteed. sounds good, eh?

i want to give olive away. yes, i have a bunny. and a cat too, as a matter of fact. cat facts. haha. umm... today i asked sherita how long she's planning to keep onyx and she said most likely forever since she doesn't give animals away. then i started to think about how long i planned to keep moose. probably a long time, right? i have to set up an appointment for him to get all his needed shots then get him declawed. i hate his claws! that's one of the biggest reasons i keep throwing him.. cats are easy to have because they're so willing to use a litter box so it's not that difficult to keep things clean with them. since they're getting older, they have more needs and i haven't had the time (or money) to get them things they need like a real scratching post... they're currently using my cork board i couldn't get on my wall..

about a week ago i got really tired of my closet so i went shopping. i still haven't bought my sewing machine but when i do, maybe i could sell some of my stuff on the internet or to whoever wants it. i want to take a sewing class... not to mention a culinary class since i've been very much into cooking as well. i'm also trying to get on television... weird!! but i think i'd like it -- being a host for a show or maybe a reality thing.. i'm trying to look for those disney audition dates but i can't find them on the internet. gotta start somewhere. the things that are going on right now are changing how i want my future to turn out... maybe i was watching project runway way too long. the marathons are always running.. but it's still a passion and i should follow through with something in my life. i have different values now. i even thought of doing a beauty type academy where i learn how to cut hair and do make-up. but that'd only be good for a few years since i can't see myself indulging in something shallow for my entire life. i wanna make the world better too, as corny as that sounds.

so yeah.


Happy Birthday, Ma

it's my momma's birthday today.
Happy Birthday, Ma.

i saw my nieces for the first time in over a month. i missed them a lot. Elly jumped on me when i was taking a nap to say, "I love you, Tita Bus. I love you more and I love you when the sun is out and I love you even when it's 12. I love you when you make mistakes too." :)

& Lily is so talkative.
