Welcome Back...

Me! To the gym. I know this makes me addicted but I missed you so much. The sweating but not the grunting. The satisfaction of knowing I JUST BEAT YOU!! TAKE THAT OLD MAN WITH THE BOW LEGS!!! You better believe I race people daily on the track. And if you're on the bike next to me I don't feel good until my RPMs and level are higher than yours. You didn't even know this is a competition AND I'M WINNING!!

Me! To Charlotte!!!! 9 days from RIGHT NOW I will be en route to the queeeeeeen city! I will actually get to go to my cousin's bridal shower. I also looked at her registries (you know you have to have multiple!). I have 3 cousins getting married this year-- May, June & September. None of them have wedding websites. What the... People. We are in the 21st century. How is this even possible?? I know people with 2 and 3 sites and y'all don't have one between the 3 of you. I'm about to do them for them. They need to get it together. But anyway I was looking at the Crate&B.arrel registry for the May cousin. LOVE!! Can't wait to buy stuff from that for her. Plus she's so fab. I'm also planning lots of food and drink outings (of course!!) I also plan on getting some therapy. It's so necessary. This time, I've also planned in some down time... kind of. I know y'all know me and know better than that. I actually don't have my itinerary yet but I have a feeling I'll be very bored in the next 24 hours. You know what that means... itinerary time! Lol.

Baseball season!! I used to play softball. My sister was obsessed with it though. For Mother May I, we all had personalized moves outside the regular ones. I don't remember what mine was but hers was "Wanna play softball?" Hilarity. You had to crouch into the batter's stance for how ever many you'd been asked to do. Too funny.

We loved watching baseball as kids. My mom would even let us stay up to watch the world's series. That is until the strike. It took so long and then when they came back nobody could catch anymore! It was pitiful. And stole my love for the game. I didn't get it back until I moved back here. My soror Tiffany who was still in undergrad at Hampton is from here and was here for the summer when I first moved here. For my birthday, we went to a Pirates game and I loved it! It was so fun and I've been hooked ever since. But only on live games. I don't do t.v. The home opener is next Monday. I'm not going (1- it's sold out, 2- it'll be cold (last year it was 35, this year it will be about 53))but I'll be going to another game! Can't wait. Nachos, I love you!

Jolly Jameil! Man alive. I had a ROUGH week and weekend. You know I was sick last week. I'm much better now, thanks for asking. You know what sick means... CRANKY! I was not a pleasant person to be around and my coworkers were sick and/or cranky, too which made it not fun to be there. People were really getting on my nerves in general. I had to go home and read the Bible for like an hour yesterday to get the upsetednessocity out of my body. Talking to my line sister helped, too. She can almost always calm me down. She is definitely one of the calmest people I know. Love it.

Mad.onna! Love your new song!!

Shani!! Your blog is mahvelous dahlink!

Mr. Brown... Can't wait to see the new doc.

Why yes, yes, it is funky. Y'all know that song makes me giggle.

Today I felt the same way about the gym! I still cursed the instructor during the work out, but afterwards...I felt like I was on top of the world!!!

LOL @ you feeling good about beating old bow legged men...shame on you!

Glad you are back to your old perky self!

Opinionated Diva said...

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better.

Rell said...


I do that in the gym everyday! Like these little 105-pound women get on the stairmaster and see me on there and are like "i can beat this dude."

So i turn it up to like level 18 (20 is the highest) and beast them for about 30 minutes.

Then after they've left and I've shown my dominance — I go in the back and recover because going that hard almost KILLS me.

But hey, i beat them and they know it.

Rell... JERK!! you know you ain't right!! and then you limp home. hilarity.

I own the elliptical machine! Little 90 pd chicks think they can beat me are sadly mistaken! I ain't scared, Epson Salt is on sale for 99 cents at Wal.greens anyway!!

Desy said...

Yeah to sweating out nicely done hair!!!...i think…lol

I've only been to Charlotte once on a choral trip… Didn't see a damn thing..lol. Hopefully the weather will be nice

I've never really been excted about baseball season, but I do enjoy watching people I know play (the hotel I worked at formerly had a league). I've played once… with little leaguers and got stomped…lol

Upsetednessocity..????? <---Stealing it…lol

Open Grove Claudia said...

Hurray for weddings! And returns to the gym! I didn't realize you were so competitive - damn. Remind me never to work out with you. I'm delighted you are feeling better though! Whoo hoo! :)

Happy Monday!

Stacie von Kutieboots said...

i never would've pegged you as a baseball fan! that is too cute. stan and steph drowned me in it so i'm good.

love the mother may i game!

spchrist said...

Are these small or big weddings? But really is a wedding website absolutely necessary?

jameil1922 said...

MP... LMAO! you are nutty.

desy... i have a fro so no real sweating out. charlotte is fab.

claud... i actually encourage people who work out with me. but if you're not w/me, you're against me and YOU'RE IT!! lol.

stace... yep! it's fun! the stadium is so pretty you could be entertained there, too. GREAT view of the skyline.

sp... they vary i'm sure. i really don't know. does the size matter? get up on that wedding website! it's an easy way to disseminate wedding info to people i.e. locations, how you met, more about your future spouse for people who know one of you better than the other. i'd like to know more about my cousins' fiances and some of them i may not meet prior to wedding day.

Miss B said...

LOL@making the gym a competition...guess thats a way to make it fun.

Ummmm...upsetednessocity? I'd steal it...but er...umm...I can't say it...LOL

I love Madonna's new song too!! I wanna dance everytime I hear it. YAY Madge, JT and Timbo!!!

Chris said...

smh@you lapping Bob and Billy and they don't even know it. Tar-uh-bul, as my grandma used to say.

And yes, Baseball is a helluva drug. I'm inclined to check out a game at the Nationals' new park this summer...only when the 2007 National League East champion Phillies are in town :)

jameil1922 said...

b... i have to occupy my mind as many ways as possible or I will get very bored. madge is mahvelous!

chris... hey if they're not movin it they're eatin my dust. btw no one cares abt the phillies.
