So Icy

Yuck. Even though it was icy, surprisingly its not that cold. Just hovering around freezing. I'll take that over wind chills below zero. Nah mean? I got called in to work today because we were on for hours and hours and hours because of the ice and more than 400 school closings and delays. 2 of the 4 morning folk called off. Yah. Bubonic plague is rampant in the newsroom. I most definitely went to all the surfaces I thought any of them might have touched with the clorox wipes. Don't play. I was sick last month, I don't want to get into February with my lung on the floor. I'm cool on that. Part of the reason I went? Tomorrow will make my 6th day this week which means I get time and a half for my 11 hour shift. HOLLA!!!!

After work, I went to the gym (just a workin on my fitness). Of course G(ym guy) was there. You know I was with the hello and the keep it moving. Then BK! I know, I know. I've got to stop with the fast food. I decided I needed to get some fries since Tuesday (MARDI GRAS!!) is the last day before Lent and I haven't had any in a few days. Sigh. Oh Lenten season. I need to go all out man. I think all day long on Tuesday I eat nothing but fries. Speaking of Mardi Gras... when I think of that I think of New Orleans, which means I think of fave roomie. Please pray for her. Her grandma just died on Monday. Yes, less than two weeks after her baby was born. She didn't get to go see her grandma because she couldn't take Sydnee anywhere yet because her immune system isn't strong enough. :(

On a brighter note, I've taken some pictures in the last week or two. "Like to see them? Here they go!" (Paraphrase) "Free your miiiiiiiiind and the rest will folloooow!" Nothing like some EnVo.gue to get you in the celebratory mood. I know some of you (ahem LA AND X!!) will say something about these pics like "How typical" but I really don't care! First, in honor of fridge Friday, I call this picture, "Yes, I'm actually a Mexican." I put all my Mexican-esque (or should that be Mexican-o?) food on the table so you could fully understand. Y'all know I want to marry a Mexican. There are three, count 'em, THREE jars of salsa, two packs of tortilla shells and two bags of tortilla chips. And those are just the multiples. I can't help it. IT'S JUST. SO. GOOD!

Remember the fat tour? My hour and a half trip just for food from my homeland? What? Charlotte is considered a homeland!! I took pictures of that, too. Yes, I'm petting the cup of S.onic limeade. (Peep my other love, Vaseli.ne Lip Therapy in jumping in the picture.) Did I tell you I'm now in love with limes? They're my new thing. If I could get some lime sorbet I would die. DIE I SAY!! And for our next part of the fat tour... those tell tale dots.Is that what I think it is? Oh it is.Ahhhhhhh! That was the choir of angels. Is your face as beatific as mine? Do you have that dreamy stare and a bit of drool? Moi aussi. *wipe* But wait! There's more.You should see how close to the screen my face is right now. My mouth is seriously watering. Love in your mouth. Ooh uh oh. Oh uh oh looove in your loooove in your mooouth! (Most ignorant song ever!) I can't remember who asked me what possessed me to go on the fat tour. I don't even know but it was so so worth it! I'm sure I'll do it again one day. Anyway I get to go back to work at 11:30 tonight. Can't wait. (sarcasm) Time to pop bottles.

Lol... now you're just showing off! I, too, am obsessed with limes - they make EVERYTHING taste better! And my fave KK donuts - maple glazed.

Now my mouth is watering, darn you!

1969 said...

Limes are the best!

As for KK donuts? They are the DEBIL.

Sha Boogie said...

I just licked my screen. I blame you. And those blasted Krispy Kreme's!! We had 3 open in Boston. Two closed :( They wasn't ready! Stupid Dunk.in Do.nuts.

JOB said...

If they didn't have glass separating us from the donuts, I'd think they were doing something illegal in the back of Krispy Kreme.

the joy said...

Cannot get with the Kremes. Would you like some donut with your sugar? Lol. Dead at the kilo shout out. Did he really say "teefis" (teeth) in a song? Sigh.
Glad you at least acknowledged G. Maybe one day you can tell him all he did wrong so he can realize why he's 30 and single.

Sparkling Red said...

Do you have the show "Eataholics" on American TV? It's filmed in England. Apparently there are some people who ONLY eat french fries (a.k.a. "chips") three meals a day. The show is about their journey with food therapists, trying to get them to eat fruit etc. without gagging. If you want to get turned off of fries for a while, that might do it!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

I can't believe you posted Krispy Kreme doughnuts when I'm sitting here drinking coffee without any.

My day is going to be miserable unless I can hook up with a chocolate-covered creme filled bit of heaven. And I want it NOW!!

Sandy C. said...

No fair. That's all I gotta say :( No K.K.'s anywhere near us...I ate an entire box in California while preggo in 1 sitting. On Tuesdays some will offer 2 dozen for the price of 1. Don't ask me how I know that....

DollFace said...

OH my...Krispy Kremes?! You're making me want to go to Penn Station just to get some!

All of topic...but since you've been blogging for almost 100 days straight, how many new readers do you think you have? I love knowing there is going to be something new everytime I peep in.

The Ink said...

But was the LIGHT ON, FAM?

it just aint the same unless the LIGHT WAS ON!

Western PA has WAAAAAAY Too many School Districts.

and they have fewer NOW than they did when I was a kid. Woodland Hills was like 5 districts back in the day.

La said...

omg.... the donuts.



omg I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed them!!!!!!!


Let's talk about how when I was living at home taking a trip to the KK in the West End was like an epic soul adventure. And don't let the 'hot donuts now' sigh be on!!! Giiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrlllll


Oh look at that! I just drooled on my keyboard. 'Scuse me...

Desy said...

Ode to the fat tour

Jameil had a tour of her greatest love
All unhealthy, but always thought of
It started with salsa, then moved to shells and chips
Cause you know, tortilla aint right without the dip
Then it was time for the limeade to have its spot
Lookin in the camera like 'Ya'll aint know I was dis hot?'
Then came the Kreme of the Krop
Doing big things things making sure every woman has something to drop
What a tour I must say
I'm sitting here droolin, wondering 'What the hell and I gonna eat today?'

Don't let those folk drive you crazy at work…
Happy BlackHistoryMonth

Dogon said...

Karamale said...

but wussup on the chocolate glazed!?!

all these new-fangled locations are just pale shadows of the true greatness of krippy kreen from down souf - the original kk empiya! i KNOW you know bout them crazy-colored neon kk signs from back in the day.

Karamale said...

YOOOOOOO - i know the BEST song for a kk throwback ad:

"put it in my mouth"

kara... i don't do choc. kk is the TRUTH!!! LONG LIVE KK!!!!! akinyele for kk. love it!

Siobhan said...

Just wanted to say, that was so entertaining. I'd be long-winded about it, but it's 2:32 a.m. and I really need to get to bed. See what happens when I'm left unchaperoned? *sigh*

Rashan Jamal said...

Me thinks I saw a bottle of Cuervo.

People go nuts over KK. I brought some to work for my team once, and people just started running towards me. They are good, but I'm not really into the sweets like that.

Stay away from that plague. I don't blame you at all for wiping it down. *shoulders chest pants shoes*

Chris said...

There's a gas station chain here in Southern Maryland that has a Krispy Kreme next to it. I hadn't seen once since Delaware closed its last one three years ago. *sings* I'm just fighting tem-tay-shun!

jameil1922 said...

shuv... lol. i love being up early in the am if i've been up all day!

rj... you did!! i wouldn't run to you but my eyes would light up and i would dance. lmao @ wipe it down! love it!! so fun to bring all these songs out of folk.

chris... hahahahaha. you fight it. i'll eat them for you! mmmmmmmmmm donuts!!

CNEL said...

I just figured out the necessity of a lime with a Corona LoL.

I haven't had Krispy Kremes in forever, my grandmother, God rest her soul, got me hooked. Then in high school when ppl used to have to bring in snacks for mtgs it was K^2 in the morning, Papa Johns in the afternoons. Thinking of it don't know where the nearest K^2 is.

yet another black guy said...

mmmm, Sonic's and Krispy Kreme....

Monie said...

You are completely insane but I love it!!!

I didn't think anyone could possibly love fries more than me but I think you might...
