The Party Animal

Anyone who knows me well knows I LOVE to hang out. Whether it's at a house or a bar, a restaurant, whatever. If there are people, food and/or drink, I'm DOWN! So why did I not go anywhere Friday night? Okay everyone may not know I'm home but enough people know I'm home.

I'm not going to lie. I expect people's lives to adjust their revolution and center on me when I get home. This is predicated on the length of time I'm normally home and the amount of time between my visits. AND because it's just who I am. I want the attention. I know what happened. They got used to me. As old people used to say, "I got common." Of course I would never say such a crazy thing. THEY might have gotten common, but I, Jameil il Fabulosa, did not get common. I will explain.

The first 2 years I lived in Pittsburgh I came home once a year. And not during the holidays. Then this past year I came home in April for my normal vacation, then again in May for my sister's graduation. Shortly afterward I put in my 6 weeks notice at work. I was home again in August for about a week until I moved to Florida. And now this. They haven't gotten a chance to miss me!! I finally come home for Christmas for the first time since 2005 and I want IT ALL to stop if it doesn't include me. When I found out my mom only had 3 days off while I was in town I was like, "Excuse me?" So now we have a week together. I don't think this is unreasonable. I would do the same thing for any of them if they would bother to visit me. I see I'm gonna have to stick to once or twice a year to get some attention. I know I'm demanding and I don't care. My mother says if I don't get what I want, I will "take my ball and go home." Jam right I will!! You don't need me here? And I'm out. She counts the contents of this entire post as a flaw. For the most part, I do not.

I don't beg people to enjoy my company. All I ask is that you make some effort to be around me when I'm in town. I have an open invitation to Atlanta and a more than willing party. I will use it if I have to because I sure don't mind. I'm already going down in a week, for a week, I can make it even earlier. All of this goes to say if I don't go out tonight and get no phone calls, we are going to have a problem. A big one.

"they haven't had time to miss me" LOL!!

Looks like you're going to have to make some calls.

Oh and when I'm at home I hide because I live too close to people from high school that I can't stand

(this is to help beat rah on comments)

Which is like 90 percent of the people I went to HS with

Actually...your reasoning is really sound. I don't see why anyone would disagree-lol.

Look at you...
Your theme song should be "The World Should Revolve Around Me" by Little Jackie (it's mine!).

Random question...do you have a good recipe for risotto?

As you know, I'm the complete opposite when I go home. I hide from old people I used to know, and hope my family wont make me do stuff. I hope it gets better, you know you can come here whenever you want.

v... lol. i don't make calls. when i see people i don't want to see i act like i don't. rah and i don't believe in counting multiple posts from the same person but the effort is duly noted! few and far between are the people who want to see more than 5% of the people they went to h.s. with. if that.

dani... lolololol. thanks!

doll... lolol. idk who little jackie is. i always sing mya "it's all about me, me, me, me, me." nope, no good risotto recipe (actually never made it) but rach has some good ones. here's a drunken one. http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/30-minute-meals/drunken-risotto-with-grilled-chicken/article.html
