T.Y.I.R.

You know! The year in review! Yeah right. You know I don't do things true to form. I thought about it. I really really did. But why would I want to relive 2007? I'd rather look forward to 2008 with hope and faith of the joy and contentment that lies ahead for me. I'll be going to Houston in March to hang with fave roomie, her new addition (Sydnee Denise circa January 16, 2008!), La and V. I've never been to Texas so that should be exciting. (I'm thinking Mexican 3xs a day. Yes?) I would also like to get to California (never been there, either) and Miami once again.

Side note:
Stace is a domestic goddess so she's making us breakfast again. For lunch we're going to a Pittsburgh institution: Primant.i's. If anyone ever offers you a Pittsburgh-style sandwich, that means it comes with slaw and french fries... on it. I always pull the fries off. Ordering them on the side is frowned upon. Don't upset the natives and all that. Then I have to take her to l'aeroport. Nooooooooo!! There is only one upside to this. I will finally get some sleep! I've gotten 7 hours in the last 2 days. The only reason I'm as sane as I am (despite the fact that Rashan said all bloggers are crazy. WHO YOU CALLIN CRAZY!?!) is because I regularly get at LEAST 7 hours of sleep nightly. Yeah... And actually I never regularly got that much before in life because I love going to bed late (see: 4 a.m.) and waking up late (see: after noon). The turns life takes. I can't wait to get back on that schedule ever again in life.

Regularly scheduled programming:
I have 3 weddings already so far. A coworker in Vegas in April at the B.ellagio, a cousin in May in H.iltonHead, SC, another cousin in September in Charlotte. This time last year I didn't know about the wedding that was in August so who knows how many more ceremonies I'll accrue in the next 12 months. I also have 2 graduations. My sister from undergrad and my line sister from S.yracuse's journalism school. Sigh.

Have I ever told you guys how much I can't stand graduations? They bore the crap out of me. Long, lots of talking about stuff no one cares about. STOP SPOUTING YOUR PLATITUDES AND GIVE ME MY SHEET OF PAPER!! If you love me, you wouldn't ask me to go to your ceremonies. I talked the entire way through both of mine. It was really bad in college because you know how smaller schools within the university are close knit. The journalism majors had had classes together for at least 3 years. Cuttin. Up. It was actually fun. And our 4-year class dictator president gave the most memorable speech. Good times.

Anyway, the point is, anything could happen in the next year. I'm just glad to be able to see another one should I make it to 2008. No matter what happens, I will learn, grow and love. It will be great. Adios oh-7, Hello oh-8!

I'm tired for YOU. *Snore* This happens because of Negroelepsy due to all that food y'all been indulging in; and the nerve of you to not invite the adoptee blogger.

Primanti's is the shizznit!!!!

jameil1922 said...

1969... really? you like it like that? meh. I just merely think its ok. partly b/c the one i went to (the original in the strip) was quite dirty and smoky. but my homie who came to visit me from charlotte was definitely a fan.
