FW:FW:FW:FW

You already know I don't like forwards. I can't find any posts to link to so just take my word for it. (If I can't find posts now at just over 500... where will we be in 3 years?? Wow...) I straight delete them. Don't even open them. Stace played me the other day. It was something I needed to read and act on in a limited amount of time. I ignored it b/c there were 8 FWs in front of it and missed the deadline. She says she loves me but pretty sure that proves otherwise. Especially since she mentioned it after the fact.

Why do people still send me the "Friendship" ones? Do they hate me, too? I had one former friend actually get mad at me because I asked her to stop sending me forwards. Then the argument devolved into her getting out every frustration she ever had with me and me saying, "Well how bout you just cut me out of your life because I'm done. Have a nice life." She wanted me to go back and forth with her but her last email I just deleted and kept it moving. "I got, no time for fake ones." Thanks Diddy. Let's go get our blue black tans on. Miami baby! I'm thinking Labor Day. Who's down?

Your concern for me in my last post is a bit disconcerting. Do I really sound worried??? I'm straight. I'm not in a rush. But it's hard not to think about marriage and children when they are all around you in the form of family and friends remember this and this (number 11) and this? Yeah... so calm down!

I'm letting my thoughtful side come out. I created an amazing dish for one of my homies. A melange of cantaloupe and bologna with a turmeric crust. It's a food said homie is disgusted by, one homie won't eat and a spice homie has never heard of. Hot, right? That's for you, dog. Because I'm just that nice. But I will cut you if you send me a forward. Better than cutting myself, right?

Also one of my blog homies who has dropped out the game but is considering a return is in med school at Howard. That means I need all you Howard and DC heads to leave all your gems about the hot spots for everything! Get to work!

I hate forward emails too. Pisses me off when I see them waiting in my inbox. Ugh!

Adei von K said...

is that cantaloupe bologna turmeric dish a joke? is it that you'd give someone if they forward you something?

you know what? seeing how i'm one of your closest friends in the united states, no, the world... you should know that I know that you don't like forwards. who actually likes them?? would i send you garbage, LaJameilionte?

no.




y'all didn't know that was her real name, did you? she shortened it when she got to HU cause it was too, "urban"

I had to ask someone I work with to stop sending me forwards. Sometimes she sent half-a-dozen in a single day. :-p She didn't mind my request and it didn't impact our relationship, except that I no longer felt annoyed with her much of the time. Trust me, the "jokes" were never funny!

Opinionated Diva said...

Cantoloupe, bologna and tumeric huh? I'm going to guess that the "homie" doesn't like the cantaloupe...right?

Forwards seriously annoy me too...especially yahoo forwards because you have to keep opening the previous forward and it pops up as a seperate email. By the time you get to the original email, you have a zillion pop ups!! Now I just delete 'em...can't be bothered.

i definately don't do fwd emails, but even worse, i DEFINATELY don't do forward texts... especially the ones that requires me to do something to prove my love for God or my appreciation for a friend, or the desire to be boo'd up with someone... it's all so iiiiiiiritating...

i just thought you were talking; i didn't get worried, but i reviewed what people commented and you really raised some alarms...lol

Vdizzle said...

I'm so down for the Labor Day weekend? When is Labor Day?

Keith said...

I despise email forwards, and I absolutely loathe text message forwards. DO people really think I have time for that? The funny thing is that I get most of my forwards from my wife!

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

Rashan Jamal said...

Umm. that has got to be the worst possible combinations of food. The only that would make it worse is if you chopped it up and put it over some sushi. LOL

I have a former associate that still fwds me fwds even though i havent talked to her since 2003. I need to get out of her address book.

Y'know what I did for forwards? I set up an autoresponder on my mailbox so anytime anything comes through with "FW" in the title, the sender gets an automatic response: "I'm not going to read this email, since you couldn't even take the time to take the "FW" out of the subject line."

How you like dem apples? LOL.

SimplEnigma said...

Oh, and this post is worthless without a recipe. LMAO.

;)

(Still waiting on the Peach thingumajiggy from last time. Hmmmpfh!)

Sha Boogie said...

Ugh..I concur - I despise forwards! If I think one is really good, I'll take the time to clean it up and make it semi personal, otherwise, to the delete graveyard it goes!
