*sub-category - there's even less that actually annoys me for a sustained period of time.
that being said, i really. fucking. hate. lateness.
*sub-category - perpetual lateness, increases my annoyance and intolerance exponentially as each offense occurs.
with that being said, whenever i try and do something really good for someone, to help them out - and they thank me by say, being late? it nullifies the entire transaction and i no longer have any regard or concern for the offender.
lateness is not a good look. perpetual lateness looks even. worse. if u can't be on time for something trivial, the odds of u being on time for the real deal are slim to non-existent. and i just can't have that reflect back on me. especially when i'm a person who actually goes out of the way to be early. for everything.
and yes, i do hold it against the offender without a terribly good reason and/or with less than a half hour's notice.
Remember drumline? that horrible Nick Cannon movie? Coach said it best - "you're on time if you're early, you're late if you're on time"

Subject: everyone would say what they want to
I wish for one day everyone would say exactly what someone else needed to hear."
I swear I couldnt have phrased my thoughts any better than that
who are these women and what is the mindset? facebook is not that hot.
"I recently attended a seminar and someone said that women need to hear, "I love you." Men need to hear "I believe in you."
So powerful, because I could never put into words what I wanted to hear in my relationships. When I hear "I love you" it doesn't mean much to me at all. But if I had a woman who said "I believe in you" it would be very encouraging. Hearing this could make all the difference in the world.
It's not an ego thing. It would just be uplifting and encouraging. Be honest, ladies. Do you believe in black men as a whole?? If you did express that you believed in us, how do you think it would change things in our culture?
Do you feel that white women believe in their men more? less? equally?"
As a man, or a woman, do you agree with what this guy says? Is that how you feel? I think there might be some weight to it. I have two guys very close to me that more often than not, ask if i have faith in them, or believe in them and what they're doing, than asking if I love them. And i really cant lie like I sometimes dont annoy people by asking if i'm loved.
But. I moreso find it funny. Damn near hilarious. When I first found out, I couldnt stop cracking up. Is that normal?
...what does that say about where my head was at during the relationship? Or at least towards the end? I wonder.
Its a shame that poor wal-mart guy got trampled to death though. How can 10,000 people just storm into a store like that. No one saw him get run over? No one noticed that they werent stepping on a hard, flat plastic surface? No one saw that he couldnt breathe and was clutching his chest? No one stopped or even paused to give him a hand, help him up? I hope that someone does serve time for that...it makes no sense for people to be that stupidly aggressive and completely dismissive of someone else's well being over a bloody, hd/flat-screen/cooks your food/lcd/spits fire @ your enemies, television. Really and truly, it is not that serious. You deserve everything you get. Personal opinion of course.
I want to see someone fault the employee on this one. "Oh my god, how could he? Why would he try and open those doors, seeing the mob of salivating beings?" Yea? thats the argument?
Along with that old adage, there's a more recent one, not an adage, but wise words nonetheless - "beware smiling faces. smiling face tell lies." People hide the deepest, darkest, most treacherous shit, behind a wicked smile, and I know this shit first-hand. on more than one occasion. with more than one person. Until a story is carroborated, I have learned to keep my mouth shut. But once people come out the woodwork, noticing the saaaaaame things...it's time to take notice.
I try not to judge...but it's not my fault if your asking for it.

"The President-Elect was asked how he felt about the attempted (and successful) ban on baggy pants. Several cities in Michigan, Florida, Georgia and even a suburb in Chicago (Barack's hometown) have already passed a "Baggy Pants Bill" where an arrest for overexposure of your underwear can have you serve jail time, do community service and/or be fined as much as $500.
Obama's comment: "Here is my attitude: I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time. We should be focused on creating jobs, improving our schools, health care, dealing with the war in Iraq , and anybody, any public official, that is worrying about sagging pants probably needs to spend some time focusing on real problems out there. Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What's wrong with that? Come on. There are some issues that we face, that you don't have to pass a law, but that doesn't mean folks can't have some sense and some respect for other people and, you know, some people might not want to see your underwear -- I'm one of them."
...what HE said. ...you're not cute, and neither is ur jailhouse style.
....I will be forcing her to watch the movie tonight.
Now, I didn't vote for Obama because he's 1/2 black, I didn't vote for him because he's democrat as I believe the idea that all minorities should vote democrat is the most ignorant idea, I didn't vote for him because I didn't like McCain, one of the reasons I voted for him was due to his stance on women's healthcare, which is important to me because I have a grandmother who is sick often. I also liked his stance on the economy, but I will admit one reason I voted had nothing to do with any of his political standings, I hoped that young african americans across the nation would open their eyes and see that the path they are currently traveling is wrong and that seeing a man who has traveled the right path would hopefully cause them to reconsider their life choices.
Having a man of color in the white house isn't the be all & end all for our people, the view on us won't change until we change. I can guarantee you, I will put my life on this, that tonight there are black kids celebrating Obamas victory, but tomorrow, somewhere in America, there will be a case of black on black, hell, black in any race, violence based on something ignorant, gang related, or just plain stupid. There will still be the glorification of gang culture, the embracing of ignorant music with no message, the wearing of clown clothes, your XXXL white tees, the jeans that have TOO much sag, the gold teeth, its too much. Black kids across the nation, who speak with a vernacular on par with the level of a chimpanzee, will be looked at as cool, while those who choose eloquence over ignorant will continue to be labeled as "sounding white" or being nerds. There will be kids on the city buses tomorrow afternoon with nothing better to discuss than a profanity-laced tirade about there peers, they'll be constantly using the word "nigga" not realizing that they're being looked at as "niggers". There will be elaborate handshakes, bandanas, "jux's", "flippings", and initiations.
By now you should get the point of what I'm trying to say. The fact that there is a man of color as President elect means that there is hope for change on some level, I'm hoping that at least one black child, teenager, or young adult can use this event as an inspiration to try and better themselves and their race.
Note: This was written off the top of my head via my sidekick. It was directly after Obama's speech, there was no time to organize my thoughts, so bare with me.

i don't care what anyone says. just because the younger variety is more likely to run off with a pair of clothes or sneakers does not exonerate older people. you. steal. too. I don't recall coming across a law that says only theft of phones/clothes/sneakers counts. guess what? if u decide to take something that isn't yours, without permission, you're a thief. Doesn't matter if it's expensive or not, whether u rationalize it 2 b a petty thing, if it's a box of cereal or a nickel belt buckle. you're stealing. Just because u don't think it's a big deal doesn't mean the person u took it from thinks so too. More likely, they disagree entirely.
stop acting like we're the only ones doing wrong...tools
that and Sarah Palin's wardrobe....
I'm thoroughly depressed by the fact
Is there anything you've done that you wish you'd apologized for, but didn't?
While contemplating, is there anything you wish you'd told someone, but didnt?
Sparkling chilled white wine instead of water flowed from the taps during the Marino Grape Festival - and as part of the event free wine flows from the main fountain in the square too.
However, due to a technical error the pipes from the local vineyard which supply the marble fountain were switched to the domestic supply feeding homes at Marino, in the famous wine-making Alban Hills, south of Rome...(read on)
To that, I say "ciao"
and I do love her choice of wardrobe for the video. Fierce.
Dollars and Common SenseLife becomes increasingly intense this month, driving you to develop your talents. Ardent Mars enters unyielding Scorpio and your Second House of Resources on October 4, prodding you to look into financial matters. Reducing expenses to help pay off interest-heavy debts, for example, may require self-restraint now, but it will pay dividends later. The creative Sun's entry into Scorpio on October 22 will shed more light on money issues. The Full Moon in autonomous Aries on October 14 opposes the Sun in accommodating Libra to put the issue of independence versus partnership on the table. Voluminous Jupiter square the Full Moon may push this polarity to extremes, leading to a showdown in which the choice appears to be giving in or going it alone. The real lesson is that successful partnerships require both a respect for the individual and a willingness to compromise from time to time.
that was just about the time i found out i was fired and had to rein in my money. Although my senses have gotten better so, I kind of knew to be a little less free with it before the phone call. Respect definitely went out the window with it as well...
I did let 'politeness' go, because it suddenly became time for business. And sometimes you need to be real hardass with special people. Lines had to be drawn and I got myself in my right mind for sure. And I have no intent on being "unselfish" this time around. I'm very tired of being a pushover. Game over
Sometimes, horoscopes couldnt be more right. Case in point, my monthly forecast. Something I wish I had discovered...earlier in the month. But nonetheless impresses me greatly, considering how true to word this one turned out to be It must be based on fact somewhere, considering I didnt discover it until halfway through the month and it still came to be.
Being up at odd hours gets one to thinking. Just about the
But I suppose if it had played out any other way, we wouldnt be who we are now would we? At least my choices werent bad...i'll give myself that.
THAT, is an action figure. DC & WB have (of course) developed a line of action figures to go along with the super-enormous-ridiculously huge-blockbuster movie that is "The Dark Knight" (by the way if you haven't seen it, go burn out your corneas on an eclipse). There's one for Batman, i'm sure there is somewhere, but my focus is more on this one. Why? Because the likeness is so. extreme.
it's SO extreme in fact, that I'm actually willing, nay, anticipating buying it. Get the full rundown here.
And to think...just a year ago I wasnt even a Batman enthusiast.

...It was never about the money or the job for me. And you're an asshole for thinking it.
- I'm 17. I cant wait to be an adult. I babysit a one year old once a week. When I do, I pretend that he's mine
- Amputees freak me out. I dont know why
- It kills me that I lost his baby but the wall it put between us hurts more than the miscarriage and has left me feeling more alone than ever
- I sleep with older men so I wont feel lonely. I had to sleep with 25 until I found him
- I dont think anyone will ever love me, primarily because I dont have any love for myself
- I dont have any real friends. Just a bunch of cohorts.
- I fake orgasms all the time. I've never had a guy give me one
- I force myself to throw up. If I dont do it at least once a day, I will starve myself the next day. I dont have a great body yet, but I will soon.
- Thank you...you made me smile today
- I hope 'once a cheater always a cheater' isnt true, because I cheated on my very first bf
- I've never been more alone at any point in my life...and I couldnt be happier
- I dont think I'll ever be happy
- I see love everywhere and yet I cant find any for myself
- I secretly hope my fiance gets kicked out of the Navy so I dont have to move away from my family. Even though I know his Navy career is everything to him.
- My best friend's boyfriend raped me. He said I wanted it and I cant help but think he's right.
- Postsecret saved my life
- I love him more than them because he was an accident
- It took him leaving for me to realize he is the one
- I think I may have an eating disorder. No one takes me seriously when I bring it up because I 'dont look' like I have a problem
- I'm glad my friend and her bf are splittling. Now we have more in common
- I'm afraid I'll never be good enough for my family
It's comforting to know that so many of us across the country, across the globe, have such a personal, unifying bond.
For example, at a basketball game, the team you’re rooting for may score a last second shot from mid court to win the game by 1 point. You might present the “truth” that your team scored a brilliant last second come from behind win. A fan who supports the losing team might describe the “truth” of this same event as your team making a desperate but lucky shot to steal the game from the better team. If both of you are telling the truth, how can your accounts be so different? Because, the truth is only that a shot was made that won the game; the rest of what both of you told as the truth would more accurately be meaning, story, or interpretation. It is vital to distinguish what happened from the rest of the meanings and interpretations that people add. This is especially true because so much of the meaning and interpretation happen automatically at a very emotional level and so much of it has the power to determine our happiness and fulfillment if we allow it to. Perhaps the fans of the losing team will be angry and unhappy for weeks over that single victory. A player on that team might even decide that it means that he is unworthy of athletics and drop out of the program. That same player could instead decided that it means he should practice more so that he can win the next one. The decision of which story to attribute to the outcome of the game may very well decide much of that person’s future!

He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
Bad excuses are worse than none.
For many people, an excuse is better than an achievement because an achievement, no matter how great, leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future but an excuse can last for life.
An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie; for an excuse is a lie guarded.
Not hing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.

the only credible use for them is as toilet paper.
But I did wanna say thank you to everyone who came to see me while i was incapacitated. You have no idea how much I appreciate the cards, flowers, balloons, and just having u take the time out to come. Actions speak so much louder than words.
Also, from my previous post, I'd like to thank Jacqueline. I took the time today to read into what you left for me and there was a lot of handy information in there.
Around the end of the week I'm going to try and get up and actually blog my experience. 9/26/08...jeez.
I'm not gonna sit here like everyone else, don my rose-colored shades, and pretend that it really is all going to turn out ok. Because in the reality, after the upwards of 7 or so consults I've endured with 3 different doctors, I'm more aware than I'd like to be. I wish I knew less about the whole thing, short of the "recovery time". I wish I could go into the whole thing believing it'd be 30 minutes of my life. 30 minutes is easier to stomach than 3 hours. The thought makes me nauseous...
So the next time someone says to you "hey, at least you have your health," sit back and think about it. You actually do have something there.
