M Dot Does Dallas: Birthday Gristle Edition

TwitThis


If you would have told me last year that I would be living in
the Bay
and spending my born day in Dallas, I would have been like,
shut the f- up.


But I am, and its interesting.

The dope thing about coming
home is that you are around people that love
you NO
matter what.
They don't care about a fancy job,
law degree, your career aspirations. They
just love you on g.p.


They are also obnoxious as SH*T, but hey, thats my fam.

Living in New York, I forgot what that felt like and I was never home long
enough to let those sentiments bubble to the surface.

Last year, Mean Sexy and I had a birthday jump off.
Our birthdays are a day apart.


I drove BL crazy last year. Buying balloons, schlepping Trader Joes
chicken and lemon grass fritters, veggie dumpling hor'd'eroes,

mixing a BIG -SSED Pot of Sangria.

Have you ever tried driving in a car full of balloons? Tons of fun!

Birthday parties are hard work.

And now we are at a new year.


I came to Dallas for this one and its dope.

Its warm, the Barnes and Noble is Big as sh*t and
its my first OU/TEXAS weekend. <<<---I just wanna see the Cowboys. As far as life in general goes, Im in a New/Old City, I got a new gig, and Sweet Jesus appears to be
positioning himself to be filing taxes
with me, lol.

Speaking of men, why your boy the graduate gonna e-mail me
last week talking about "I saw someone last week reminded me of
....." I just looked that the screen like, you ain't want me, but you liked
having me around and now you send THIS Messages?
I didn't respond to his last e-mail in August talking about
"Can I asked what happened?", so I hope he doesn't
think that I am going to start doing so now.

My rationale has always been, MUCH to the CHAGRIN of N*ggas
that if you ain't my DUDE then you can't expect shit.
CONVERSELY, if I ain't yours the same applies.
And trust, that led to some VERY disappointing summer holidays
for me.
But, my code was "he ain't mine" so I had to stand by that,
nah mean?

N*ggas bugg me out with they unsolicited-Asperger-influenced
random-e-mails.

I guess he misses me and that is his way of communicating it.

Men. Go figure.


Back to life changes. In the grand scheme of it all, honestly,
I am just happy to be able to read a West Elm catalog
and go into Ikea without thinking about all the lovely
furniture that I had hobbled together for my BK apartment,
then gave
away when I moved.


I will say what was really helpful was talking to TMR
(the resident Katrinian), my momma, and my aunt about
how they recovered from losing mad sh*t when
they moved or just LEAVING ENTIRE apartments/houses behind.

With regard to the gig, it is with a non-profit, and they want me. So that
feels good. For the record, why do employers think its okay to

treat employees, temp or otherwise like WARM BODIES?


Talk about divesting in your OWN human capital.
CEO's and Human Resources NEED TEACHIN'.

Any hoo.

After working in the M & A in an investment bank for the first time (for
a VERY short period of time) in my life
I realize that the only way I will thrive in that environment
is if a white
man with authority has a vested interested in my remaining there.
Otherwise, I can see myself- albeit talented, shrewed and hardworking,
getting FROZE the F*CK out.

Man, I'm going to Dallas in two weeks for work (training). Any suggestions on places to go? No new changes for me. I'm just trying to plan ths graduation/birthday party for my mom. It's costing a pretty penny, but she deserves it.

As for college ball, Ohio State is surprising the hell out of me this year(in a watered down league), they made me have to get tickets to go see them play.

House is Blues is dope for lil dinner and kickin' it.

What are you interested in doing here?

Congrats on mom's 'ish....she sounds dope...

yoo, the barnes and nobles i go to down here is big ass hell too. they got couches and i just chill and read books and magazines for free all day.

I just got this job being a night courier driving all over the place and i should be making serious cash. supposedly they spend 34 grand a week over nighting papers. and now that im doin it, i def wont be making that much, but shit, i could imagine what theyll pay me since im cuttin their costs dramatically.

Nope didnt hear the 9th wonder.

M.Dot. said...

Hi J.

Making moves I see.

STAKIN' CHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPS!

How your brother and them Fly ladies?

LOL.

Ummm...I am strange so I have an annual bowling routine...which I attempted to partake in last night, but ended up eating and, ahem, bonding instead. <<<---- No matter where you go, you are who you are player.

Tonight is dinner, tomorrow is the game & likker and music,...sunday is church and sj's fam and if TMR can get her lil Katrinian self situated, she should be linking up with us as well.

Makes me tired just thinking about it.

Tired. AND. Happy.

I'm trying to decide between Comcast and Ted Turner. Ted might be paying for that move to GA, so, that's something to ponder.

Nah, college football isn't my thing, it's all about college basketball. (Go Blue Devils!)


The Dream Merchant 2? Stunning.


I've updated the page, come visit.






You know, when you have a moment.

Happy Birthday by the way. Texas fans know how to party before a game (and after), I still remember when they came to Columbus and whooped our ass. It was all good other than the game that day.

I definately want some place to check some clothes. Other than that some local place to get a drink and chill. I don't know how much free time, I'll have, but I just want see some local places.

Say word.

I NEVER SEEN SO MANY NEGRO's dranking and cheering on a game in the middle of the afternoon.

WITH SOULJA BOY et al, being played by a DJ during the commercials.

Hence the term "watch party".

College Ball ie, OU/TEXAS is like a religious event dude.
