Yeah my son is sooo smart!!!

What's a girl to do?

My vacation started Friday at 1:30. I had planned to leave work by noon but it did not quite work out. I picked my oldest up and we (the youngest and I) took him to Sea World to apply for a job. We heard that they hire "EVERYONE" cause summer everybody and their grandma flocks to the "worlds finest city" to do Sea World. My youngest and I sat in the car while he applied. He had to do a drug screen and "mini" interview. I had to explain to him why they had to take a sample of his hair for drug testing. He simply said "mom i'm only 17. Why would I do drugs? Why does anyone do them...just dumb!!" I love my son!! He has the next interview on Wednesday....Keep your fingers crossesd!! He also had an interview last night at the movie theater...I really hope he gets that job instead cause it's closer to our house and I would just have to pick him up from the trolley station. Sea World is really far for him on the bus/trolley but hey...if I have to take him......

Friday evening I got my hair done. Just french braids in front and a curly type weave in back. Best friends cousins are visiting from Oakland so we took them out. We went to a spot we had never been. Can I tell you I had a ball? WELL HELL I HAVE FUN WHEREVER I GO!!! lol I heard from another friend that she didn't like it cause the crowd was kind of "young". I decided I needed to see for myself!!! Yeah there were a few "babies" (early 20's) but it seemed more like the women were young.....But the fellas......oohh wee lots of eye candy. I had a crook in my neck from turning my head....LOL I will go back! I met a very nice gentleman caller from Mississippi. Very nice guy. I sure like them "country boys".

Saturday I lounged most of the day. I hooked up with the girls for lunch at Applebees. We were supposed to go down to the Puertorican fest but we had so much fun in Applebee's....well lets just say they were glad when we left!!! We headed to a friends house for drinks and cards. We laughed so hard...I had a major stomach ache and my face hurt. Best friends cousins are ssshhh let me whisper this in your ear.....they are transexual.......they are HA-LARRE-OUS!!!!!! Jokes non stop!!! There will be a WHOLE post about them!!!!

Sunday....two basketball games for my youngest. In between games I met Mr. Mississippi for lunch. He is very nice but he is only here for 6 months to a year doing contract work....hmmmm we will see! I like this dating thing so far.....After we were done with my son's 2nd game, my neighbor had a barbeque so I chilled with my neighbors a lil while and went to bed early!!! It was cool cause I didn't have to cook!!!

Today......took both the boys to summer school. Now I'm doing laundry cause I didn't do it yesterday. I'm going to clean the house from top to bottom while i'm home alone and can really "get busy" That is if I don't get caught up by my "BLOG ADDICTION"

Y'all have a great Monday....I will!!!!!!



Thursday, June 23, 2005

WHO IS THE SHIZNIT?

Guess who is employee of the month?

That's right boys and gurlz.....ME! Boss lady ruined it because she told me right before the staff meeting yesterday!! I swear that lady can't hold water but I love her to death!! I acted really suprised though...lol....give me an emmy!!! I got a $125 gift certificate from a list of stores!! I decided on DSW cause I could use couple of summer sandles!!! YEAH!!! Boss lady said she picked me cause I "held it down" while she was chillin on the beach in Hawaii!!!

Boss lady asked me to call human resources to find out where my application was. Her boss had not yet recieved it. I tried to explain to her that they didn't foward my application to her boss because they felt I was not qualified.....I reminded her that it is H.R's job to "weed" through the applicants and foward the appropriate ones.......her response was "oh yeah, you're right". She called over and yep....just like I thought...they had my application in the "she.has.got.to.be.kidding.pile"!! Boss lady had them fish it out of said pile and she fowarded it to her boss!!! Now this is the funny part.....boss lady asked me last night "when would you like to set up your interview?" I laughed and said you mean when do I want us to take an "extended" lunch ....LOL We have worked together for a long time and she knows me very well....I will keep y'all posted.......Maybe the diva will be hanging up her scrubs for some bidness attire....LOL Any excuse to shop!!!

The new guy is still cool! We talk/text everyday...He decided that we should just "hang out" and enjoy each others company while getting to know each other.....HUH? I said is that code talk for I should pay sometimes? He just laughed and said "DEE YOU ARE SO CRAZY" Shit I was serious as a heart attack!!! He is new to San Diego from Jersey so I guess it would be kind of cool to get my "tour guide Barbie on" LOL I will let y'all know how it goes.......

I decided yeah i'm gonna line me a couple of suitors up and see what happens......I'm not trying to be a "playa playa" Kelz...lol I just figure I have a lot of catching up to do.....17 years worth...LOL

Tuesday, June 21, 2005

I don't want to be here at work!!!

I can't really blog hop like I want cause "boss lady" is back and we share a tiny lil office!!!

Boss lady's boss called yesterday to ask where my application is for the job......

My vacation starts Friday at 4:30!!!

The new guy is cool.....

This dating may be o.k

FRIDAY: We had our end of the year party for the residents. Three will graduate and become full fledged Doctors!! There is always dinner and awards given and the residents usually do some sort of skit to entertain us. We have the dinner with the two other "family medicine" clinics. It's nice because otherwise I don't really get to see the other docs/staff from the other sites unless we have some mandatory class or training.

I had to leave the dinner early cause I had a DATE!! Yep....I told y'all I was about to start!!! Dude invited me to see D.J.Quick Friday night. YES I LISTEN TO RAP!!!!

He was a gentleman all night and we "clicked".....He likes to dance just as much as me.....cool.......we have similar taste in music.....cool.....I will hang out with him again...........

Saturday: I was soooo tired from getting home at 4 a.m(dam I haven't done that in a long time) I still woke up at 8:30 ish cleaned up a lil bit and had to go to the grocery store.......Can I say I hate grocery shopping!!! With the boys being out for the summer....I have to keep the fridge STOCKED!!!! My lil men can eat!!!! My grocery bill always DOUBLES in the summer!!! I made the mistake of taking my youngest with me to the store(big mistake) I usually shop alone!!! Costs me much less!!! Came home put the food away and CRASHED!!!! Slept most of the evening....got up and ate cause the teenager cooked.....then went back to bed!!!


Sunday:woke up at O'Dark thirty......maybe cause I slept ALL day Saturday...LOL Did my laundry and cleaned the house a lil....I do mean a very lil!!! My youngest had 2 games one at noon and the 2nd at 5...................after the noon game I left the boys at the gym and claimed I had to go home to start dinner.....yeah I started it and managed to fit a lil nap in........went back to the gym for the 2nd game. We got home I finished dinner we ate and guess what? I took my ass back to bed!!! I tried to watch a lil t.v.with the boys but "ittis" kicked in and I was out......must have been the country style ribs and macaroni and cheese!!!! LOL

Mom then this is the good part...she asked if I had time for another lady to interview me. Of course I said yeah...This is a good sign right mom? Then when she got up to go get the other lady, I stood up, shook her hand and said thanks for your time! The next lady talked to me for a lil while and I gave her good eye contact, just like I did the 1st lady but she didn't look at me she just looked at her paper. The 2nd lady gave me eye contact right back!!! LOL Well when we were done the lady said thanks I stood up and thanked her back and gave her a "firm" handshake...lol She said I will recieve a card in the mail within a couple of days.
Mom that's good right?

I nailed the questions......I looked neater than the other two girls that were before me......I DESERVE to get this job!!! Ya know?

Shit I felt good too cause it made me realize I MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT!!! He is turning into such a fine young man!!! Things like this make a mom proud!!! He says he is going to take over a "lil" bill LOL I said son there are no "lil" bills...LMAO you keep your money but you can take over your cell bill!!!!

All my gurls are divas......

After yesterdays post I decided to write about my gurls and the different hair styles they rock.....

The 1st is the one I have the most admiration for......Margarete....she sits in the barber chair like clock work every single week!!! She rocks a very...very....very...short cut....lined up to PERFECTION!!!! A few waves on top but cut really close all around!!! FIERCE!!! It fits her!!! She is a dark skinned beauty!!! In a world where weaves and perms rule....she is not the "norm" and she wears it WELL!!!!! She gets a lot of flack from ignant(yeah I meant to spell it like that) people who feel they need to comment on her choice of hair style!!!! She also gets mistaken for a lesbian A LOT!!! She sometimes feels she should try and "GROW" her hair out....I just tell her...NAAAWWW Your hair, your style fits you!!! I love it.......I admire women who "dare to be different"

Next is Shauna......my girl is "cut from a different cloth"!!! She will rock a long ass ponytail wrap it in a tight bun...the next day she will have a long ass weave....then slick her hair back really tight and snap on an afro type ponytail......we never ever know what to expect!!! Here is why she stands out.....She says and I quote "MY HAIR IS MY OUTFIT!!!"
Let me elaborate....this gurl will rock a wife beater some cut off shorts and high ass heels....while we are all dressed to the T!!! LOL She doesn't give a dam about labels or designers.....purses naaaw.....I don't think i've ever seen her in a dress.......but the girl owns HAIR....HAIR......and MORE HAIR!!! I swear she could put the Korean wig lady out of biddness!!! She has her own style and I luv her for it........

Nex is DeeDee. She rocks wigs.......all the time.......short pixie wigs...bob cuts....lil flip styles.....curly.....half wigs....you name it....she owns it.....I always tell her she is so daring and bold!! I luv her style....she has the "attitude" to wear it!!! " I am always anxious to see what she will be wearing........on her head....a true beauty!!!

Sonya.....she is the itsy bitsey lil one of the "bunch" She sports the very short cut with the lil bitty ass curls that you have to use a pencil to curl!!!! Never a hair outta place!!!!! Lined perfectly.....doesn't move...I swear that heffa don't sleep!!! LOL In between trips to the shop.....she throws a few finger waves in and she transforms into a woman of another era.....stunning!!!!

Rhonda......taller than me......i'm 5'11"( well 5'10" 1/2 but I like deserve that 1/2 inch) She is 6 feet barefoot.....She never ever wears flats!!! Ever....she always rocks the 4" heeels......what does this have to do with hair? Well let me tell you.....she wears the hair to match!!! SUPER MODEL style.......Her weaves are ALWAYS on point!!!! She pays out the ass....for them but dam they look GOOD!!! Always to the middle of her back!!! Soft wavey....silky straight.....even if she rocks braids, they are LONG as hell to match her long statuesque body!!! She stands out and demands attention!!!

Tamara...my bestest friend in the world!!! She says she woid DIE if they stopped making ponytails.......she snaps them on glues them on....draw strings....you name it....she owns it!!!! But she wears them well!!! They ALWAYS compliment her outfit!!!! She has "mastered" the art of ponytail wearing........she has big ass plastic containers FULL!!! LMAO She rocks other styles as well but....her signature style is her many....many....many ponytails...My favorite is where she slicks her hair up on top of her head and she has this "bun" type" ponytail she puts on the top....I would look like a "total" ass....if I tried it.....but she OWNS IT....it compliments her round face.....

I'm leaving a few folks out i'm sure but hell they don't know about my blog anyway!!! LOL
The point i'm making is my gurls are all DIFFERENT!!! We each have our "OWN" individual style.....but one thing I can say about my girlfriends:

THEY ALL DO IT WELL!!!!!

To weave or not to weave? That is the question!!!

1st.....let me say this.......I love the fact that sistahs can be soooo versitile with our hair!!! We can wear weaves, wigs, french braids, pony tails.......the possibilities are endless.....

Our hairstyles are the SHIT!!!!

WHEN DONE RIGHT!!!!!!

Why does the WHOLE world need to know you have a weave?

I have never ever worn a weave.....I don't knock it.....I rock frenchbraids....individuals....I have even had frenchbraids in the front and had the curly afro type hair sewn in the back.....cute......

1: WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO SEE THE TRACKS!!!!
they are not supposed to look like speed bumps in a residential area!!!

2: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.........TRY AND MATCH THE TEXTURE!!!!!
there are soooo many products to smooth and tame your hair!!!

3: TRY AND COME CLOSE TO THE COLOR!!!!!!
again....there are sooooo many products.....dye....rinses....permanent.....semi-permanent

4: IF YOUR PONYTAIL IS SUPER DUPER SHINY........
AGAIN........product........PRODUCT........PRODUCT!!!!!!

5: why do we have to "over-do-it?
why do you have to buy ALL the hair on the rack?
why does the hair have to reach your waist?
why do you have to use 6 packages of hair?
WHY DOES THE PONY TAIL HAVE TO LOOK LIKE A REAL HORSES TAIL?



I AM NOT "ANTI-WEAVE" JUST DO IT RIGHT!!!!!
PLEASE LADIES.........JUST DO IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!

DON'T TRY TO DO IT AT HOME IF YOU DON'T HAVE A LICENSE/CERTIFICATE!!!!

DON'T LET YOUR GURL DO IT AT HER HOUSE IF SHE DOESN'T HAVE A LICENSE/CERTIFICATE!!!!

DON'T LET THE KOREAN LADY AT THE BEAUTY SUPPLY TALK YOU INTO THE HAIR THAT "LOOKA REALLY NICE FOR YOU"

PLEASE PLEASE JUST TRY AND DO IT RIGHT!!!!

IF NOT.....JUST WORK WITH WHAT THE GOOD LORD GAVE YOU!!!!
