~i had a great day yesterday. i played hookie from work and i took my babies out to coney island. someone gave us baseball tickets and after the game i took them over to the amusement park side so they could get on a few rides.
~yeah the brooklyn cyclones beat the connecticut tigers!!!
~it was hot! and i believe that i am a shade darker... on top of my bermuda tan.
~i love and miss the coney island of my youth. as a child, my parents and their peeps would gather us kids and we'd head out to coney island on the D-train. it seemed like forever until we got there.
~ice cream, nathan's hot dogs, seafood for my parents, colorful lollipops and cotton candy... i can't forget my favorite rides and the spook house... some of the old rides and the spook house are still standing and still in service... not me. then we'd take D-train back home and i'd fall right asleep before we hit brooklyn bridge - oh the fun.
~i talk a lot... sometimes too much and sometimes i state some very profound sayings... the problem is, i don't remember none of it.
~i see it, i can feel it, my hand sometimes grips it but i shall not open pandora's box.
~if i don't remember the words coming out of my mouth... does that mean i don't really mean them? hmmm
~i had this pain for many months - could have been for about a year. knee pain. disturbing, crippling, painful pain... and last week the pain went away. just like *snap* that.
~i love that my children have personality. i had a permanent grin on my face all yesterday. they gave "evil words of encouragement" to the opposing team. we all danced (to this and i thought of your post KayC!) and we did the cha-cha slide... all in the noon day sun.
~took me a whole week to stop favoring my right knee. i had to realize that i can now stand without the stiffness, walk up the stairs without putting my weight on my left leg first and that i could run down the stairs again. every time i move with some speed, pain free, i say THANK YOU.
~i am loving this season of true blood... alcide... alcide... if you're a true blood watcher then you'll know i am summoning the sexy were (as in werewolf).
~persistence overcomes resistance... that's the saying, right? well persistence is turning into annoyance with this chick from work who is trying to hit on me...
~nope - that's not the pandora's box that i sometimes embrace.
~i joined a book club with a friend from high school and we're reading "the other wes moore" very interesting.
~i need to finish this book by saturday night. i am on page 16.
~i think it's a good book but my mind isn't clear....
CapCity... and i saw and spoke with my one of my favorite authors Bernice McFadden... and i saw Terry McMillan and Sonia Sanchez. what an awesome day it was... as dc's aunt would say... "it was so intelligent".
