Gas station etiquette...
11 jul 03 @ 8:33 am
please have some gas station etiquette?
pull into the gas station please pull up to the first pump!!! Don't park your car at the last pump and make everyone else
squeeze around to get to the next pump. And when you see someone didn't
use gas station etiquette because they parked at the last pump and there is someone behind you in line waiting for gas as
well then use common sense and pull up to the next pump in front of the person who didn't use gas station etiquette - Don't
go to the first pump so the person behind you then has to squeeze in and parallel park to pump their gas.

One who knows that you are always there for them, good or bad.
you can count on.
One who knows your moods.
One who isn’t afraid to put you in your place when needed.
One who can
make you laugh until you pee yourself.
One you can be quiet with and it not be uncomfortable.
One you can cry like a
baby in front of and they not laugh at you.
One who will check to make sure you are okay when you fall, then laugh at your
One who isn’t afraid to say – “I can’t believe her ass has a “IM ACUTY” vanity plate, when her ass is far
Great friends are hard to find but when you find them fight
hard to keep them.

Am I a drama queen???
8 jul 03 @ 2:39 pm
I don’t necessarily think I am a drama queen, but I do act dramatic
at times especially when retelling stories to my parents – they get a kick out of it. It reminds them of the little
black girl they use to have. The one who could talk for hours about nothing, the one who laughed at the silliest jokes
and who smiled just because.
But, I grew up and that little black girl doesn’t fully exist anymore.
Yes, there are moments when I can talk about nothing for hours but more often then not I would prefer to sit and be quiet
alone or with others. I still laugh at silly jokes:
Why do you never see a dead crow on the road in Boston?
when the car comes the crows always scream – CAH! CAH! CAH!
I now prefer to smile when needed. But overall, I want to
displace the gene that causes drama to always come my way. After a nightmare last night I have decided let rumors stay
rumors and don’t try to explain your way out of them. When you do, the way you explained them never gets conveyed properly
and the rumor gets worse. So from now on, I am keeping my mouth shut and drama can come my way and I will ignore it!
I’m okay and your okay…

I realized that I have
eight steps to recovering an indulgent night of drinking before my hangover can come to completion:
- Waking up and purposing that I will never ever drink again.
- Denial of any actual wrong doings.
- Realization of all my wrong doings.
- Worrying about how many were affected by my wrong doings.
- Guilt and Remorse (these last the longest, I think its all the parochial schooling as a child that establish this step).
- Nesting to overcome the guilt and remorse.
- A good cry courtesy of Prince and/or Maxwell.
It was during step six
that I actually realized I had actual steps to my recovery. Which quickly brought
about step seven – which was actually two-fold. I haven’t cried in about a year,
even though some seriously bad things have occurred, but I just didn’t have it in me to cry.
And then an argument with an acquaintance and coming across some very painful memories during the cleaning fit
while Maxwell’s “Now” played in the background sent me over the edge to Cry-Ville, then acceptance came…We all screw up! Try to learn from those mistakes and never repeat them, always sincerely apologize
regardless if you meant to hurt someone or not and be happy with who you are regardless if someone or everyone else isn’t.
