Random Words I Type

* I have been reading about Birth Order Patterns and it is so interesting. I often find topics that intrigue me and then I delve in, topics usually in the psychology field. There are 5 birth orders, Only, First, Second, Third and Fourth. Here's another link. I am so excited and enlightened by what I'm learning that I busting out with the crazies. This whole week, whenever someone has pissed me off, I've been calling them Third Born! or First Born! Of course they have no idea what I'm talking about but I just love an inside joke...

* I am so turned off by my on-the-job man #2. He recently received a hefty pay raise and he doesn't want his ex-wife to take him to court for more child support. In one way I understand being selfish with money myself but as a woman I don't get it. I always try to put myself into another person's shoes and I could be an ex-wife, struggling to pay for rent/mortgage, car note, groceries, gas & electric, gas for the vehicle, clothes, shoes, toiletries, all of the miscellaneous but necessary items and a few luxury items (mostly for the kids) all by my lonely, and he's bitching about paying a few dollars extra for child support. I got in his ass yesterday, I had to. I'm hormonal too! Last month he had no problem spending a grand or more in New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival but he doesn't want to give extra for his children, come on!

* I have another OTJ man that I share with CB and probably quite a few other co-workers. I wrote about him a few months back, in my Second Fiddle post. Well Mr. Senegal just came back from a voyage back home and he brought me back a drum. Haha sisters! He probably brought them NUTHIN', but then again I probably shouldn't be laughing.... Now I know that they have found anthrax in African drums some time ago and I'm doing my research as I type. The drum is currently tucked far under my desk in a plastic bag until I'm done researching. So far I think I'm safe since I will not beat my drum and I didn't make it but I'm still not taking any chances. In any case, it's beautiful and I loooove it!

* Taking mass transportation is probably one of the ugliest activities of my day. If I could beam myself to work for $4 a day, I would jump at it. I must listen to music and/or read a book to get through my ride faster. The pushing people, the folks hungry for the tightest seat, the people who like to lean on the poles instead of hold on to them (Hello, where am I going to hold on if you're leaning on the whole pole?!). Yet something amusing happened this week. On my way home, a subway dancer performed his routine, which I ignored. I just wasn't in the mood for watching him break dance and flip around. So after he was done, he pulled out his cap and went around the train for his donations. A woman pulled out a $5 bill and instead of putting it in his cap, she asked for change, $4 back. She must have thought she was in church and he was passing the offering plate.

* What was Luda thinking when he wrote "Politics: Obama is Here"?

Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer
Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president
Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant

Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?
If you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut!
and all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified
McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw em like candy wrap

I have a feeling that Obama secretly likes the song but he can't ever admit it! I'm cracking the hell up and shaking my head at the same time.

*I had so much more to write but it suddenly left my brain on my way to work. Oh well. Hope every one of y'all have a good and marvelous weekend!

The thing is I don't even get child support. I can't stand going down there into that crowded place and sitting there.

That is a nice drum.

I complain about my bus ride here. I probably be tripping up there.
LOL @ asking for change.

I don't have any problem with Luda.

MzNewy said...

That drum is the hotness...

I learned about birth orders a few years back...crazy how accurate they can be.

I like riding the train because it keeps me out of traffic but I do feel like I need to spray everything and everyone down with lysol. LOL

I love that Luda track...and Obama prolly does too...It's just not politically correct to say that LOL He gonna bump it once he wins the whitehouse though... *snicker*

Happy Monday -

I am mad at Luda for this song - boo...wrong time...wrong lyrics.. for real -

MsKnowitAll said...

Thanks Queen & MzNewy... I finally took the drum home since it's safe. I KNOW Obama must be loving it - lol

Ticia... Happy Monday!!! I'm so conflicted because I know the song is wrong but I still like it!

The drum is beautiful and what a great gift from Senegal! How wonderful of your friend to think of you on his trip.

I read the birth order book some time ago and realized how true the personality trait descriptions were. It made me realize why my friends were a lot like me.

Peace and Blessings.

heeey girlie... it was so nice meeting you last night... the pic is up...

next week Jill Scott!

MsKnowitAll said...

Kay C... thank you sis. that was so nice of him to think about me! i am so shocked and so grateful. this birth orderness is a trip. when you understand how a person is and that it's based on a birth pattern and not just an ugly attitude, it makes things less stressful.

Eb... was so good to FINALLY meet you. i saw the pic. it looks great. definitely will be there for jilly from philly.
