The Fire

Oxygen After a crazy day at work I didn’t think I’d heavily indulge but I thought  I would have at least have had a cocktail by now but I passed.  I came in, changed clothes then decided I should wash the dishes and maybe vent to a friend about my day. That was highly effective […]

Not This Time

I had a pretty good weekend. I met a couple of friends at a local bar for brunch Sunday and today on MLK day I napped, bought a new purse and prepared the marinade for a recipe I want to try. I’ve tried the store bought jerk chicken marinade and wasn’t impressed at all so […]

But Are You Listening

Most women my age (almost mid-thirties) are pretty sure of the things, relationships & types of friendships they want in their life. And hopefully they, we, me make those expectations pretty clear to those around us. I’m not soft spoken by far but I wonder…… I had a friend that I thought was good company […]

Post Thanksgiving

Again another post past due. However, rather than write about my Thanksgiving plans I wanted to write about my thoughts post Thanksgiving so it’s not too late. This year again, I did prepare a meal.

Mama Still Got It

Decided to hit the bars after the company holiday party in my blue suede shoes, a pair of my winters favorites.  The first bar was dead, the second bar we ended up ditching some guys  by leaving when they walked away. And besides bar number two only served beer and wine.  I’m still dedicated to […]

2014 Wrap It Up

The Good Ya girl is back in the books. Definitely something to adjust to. I miss the bar, terribly. I became a certified presenter for my organization/co. , the FACE of the company, OR.IE.NT.A.TIO.N. Makes me feel damn good. I’ve always had an interest in public speaking especially that my goal is to become an […]

26 Minute Improv: Random

I have to be up early so my bedtime is set to the next 26 minutes and instead of partying on a friday night I’m studying sustainable cooling solutions. It’s not all that terrible considering anti-partying definitely makes my budget smile. Lord knows I don’t miss the P.ad.r.es What are the Saints doing? Focus, Focus, […]

Oh No! Not the Mechanic

Finally got my brakes done so no more squeeling down the road for me. Now I just have to get this check engine light issue resolved before its time to smog. I must say my mechanic is pretty awesome. He’s mobile, his prices are low, and he’s reliable. His other talent is his sm.oked sal.mon […]
