Random Words I Type

Ooooooh it's been so long since I've blogged...

Haven't been going through much and I really have nothing to post about... but if we got to really talking, there'd be a whole lotta TMI going on. I must have posting block/blogging block... so I figured, this is the perfect to for a random.

*Gluttony truly is a sin... I do not eat meat. It's been a year or something like it since I've eaten meat other than fish and some seafood. However the other day I ate this vegetable bun and I pretended or turned a blind eye to it that it may just be meat inside of it. I'm pretty sure now that it was pork. And needless to say my body is paying the price. I am upset with myself. I tried to blame my co-worker who gave it to me and then my co-worker who gave it to her but really I am to blame because when I saw the brown grounded meat all I had to do was toss it but nooooo, I'm greedy and pretended that it was mushrooms. Now I've vowed to eat clean.

*I haven't spent any time with my friends. I've been in a sort of depressed state I suppose but I appreciate the company of one, ME. I may call one or two of them, hit them up on Facebook or send a text. But this weekend... I called all of my girlfriends and found out that one of them has been arrested, I hung out with CB and her crew on Sunday and I finally got up with my bestie DC yesterday. I missed them so.

*However my friend who got arrested for hopping on the back of the bus... WTF... we're grown now! Although I have never hopped on the back of a public bus as a youngster. If I have no carfare, I pep and step it or I borrow from somebody... anybody... but I take no chance of going to jail... been there, done that.

*Ok... see what had happened was... the year was 1999 and Amadou Diallo was gunned down by 4 police officers. Along with many others, I protested and was arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. I only spent 2 hours in jail and my record was expunged in 6 months. That was the least I could do to protest the callousness and brutality of the NYPD... Now I'm mad all over again...

*But back to my friend... I couldn't understand her being grown and hopping on the back of the bus. She's a big ole yallow girl too. An easy target. The cops came and arrested her, handcuffed her and all. She spent 2 days in jail... hey I was arrested along with about 75+ people. 2 hours was about all they afford to give me. I feel bad but then again... I don't. Hey I'll give her the $10 for a metrocard. Getting arrested for hopping the bus is just not an option.

*Yesterday while recovering from my gluttonous actions, I hooked up with DC and we went to the movies. I haven't been to the movies since... 7 Pounds, which is an excellent movie although I had to read the script online to figure out what the heck was really going on. Anyway, me and DC went to see Knowing.

*Guess what? I don't want to know. Nope. I have decided that I want to read the bible up until Jude but there's no need for me to read Revelations no more... no unh unh. I'm not interested in what's going to happen in 2012 either. Sometimes knowing is not everything. I need not know of the 5,000 dates for the end of the world. However I will say that knowing that God is in control gives me great comfort.

*That's all folks!

I hope you are not talking about a grown woman over 21 jumping on the back of a bus.

*double side eye.

Girl, at least you went to jail for a good reason, a cause, a protest against injustice.

That can not be compared to a grown women riding on the back of a bus.

I want to go strictly veggie. .I have to build my way up to it.

Glad you got out to spend time with your friends.

a grown woman hopping the back of bus and getting arrested is just ridiculously stupid on her part. What she didn't have $2 for a fare.. SERIOUSLY!!!

I don't want to see that movie knowing,I think its a bit much, these people in Hollywood just take things to the extreme. I know God is in control and I have no worries when it comes time for me to go. I just don't want to know and don't want to suffer.. Please God just take me and make it quick!

Glad you got in some friend time, we all need that.. and next time be a bit more selective in what you choose to eat. I know how it is to just close your eyes and bite, but later on your body pays for it heavily!

LOL at the grown woman jumping on the back of the bus.

Was wondering what happened to my blog friends. Glad you're back and everything is okay.

On a side note... the first time I had pork after I stopped eating it was enough to make me stay away from it for life. It was like having food poisoning. My stomach remembers every time I'm tempted with a rib :)

Queen... No I'm talking about a grown woman... over 35! jumping the back of the bus. LMAO. I tried not to laugh but I kept picturing her. Not a good look.

When I went veggie it was cold turkey. I added fish, which I only eat once or twice a week about a month later.

Liryc... I didn't want to see the movie either but I wanted to hang with my girl and that was the next movie playing. That's what we used to do in our 20s - see whatever was out. Now I have movie standards.

I am very selective with my food now. I want to see each ingredient and all spices. No more "what's that brown stuff?" ever again.

Kay C... Yes I took a break from blogging. Work has been a hassle and I didn't want to turn the pc on at home. I've been reading though... especially about an endangered species...

I think eating pork after a while of not eating it must be eating food poison! I had chills and pains. Simply awful!
