Open Letter To The White Woman In The Silver Beetle…..

You were exiting the Party City parking lot from the wrong fucking angle/side!!!!  Which is why when I enter the parking lot from the right, off of Josey Lane, you came within inches of running into my passenger side door! 

This morning my vechicle happened to contain a very special passenger – my 17 year old daughter – BITCH!!!! Your wrecklessness was not neccessary and could have caused serious injury to my child – BITCH!!!!

I was dropping her off at work this morning, we had previoulsy been engaged in pleasant conversation, and she had just ran in a convenience store to get herself a energy drink and me a fruit punch and a case of Cokes.  How dare you frighten us both, and damper our spirits – you BITCH!!!!

How dare you force her to see the fear of me losing her in my eyes!  When she exited the car, she touched my face and said "I love you mamma" I returned the "I love you"  I'm certain we both felt it deeper than we have in some time because of what almost happened due to your stupidity – you BITCH!!!

Let me tell you something BITCH!  If you had hit my car and my daughter was injured in the slightest, your apologies in any shape or form would not have been accepted!  You would pay with your ass, because I would have beat the life out of you!  Sure, it would have been deemed and "accident" but in my opinion…. not so much!  You would have ruined my life you BITCH!  If I lost my daughter, because of you, jail would be something I would just have to deal with because you too would have died today.

In a weird way, I guess I can thank your crazy ass because you did remind us both how short life can be, how you can be here one minute and gone the next and that we need to continue to say and show the people we care about how much we love them. However, white woman in the silver beetle in Carrollton, TX I didn't need a lesson from your ugly, no driving ass this morning!

Don't let me catch you in the streets again BITCH!

QotD: Your fantasy restaurant

If you could open any sort of restaurant, what would it be like?

It would be a Zen inspired Internet restaurant/cafe.  The decor would have Buddha icons and flowing water infused with modern technology.

The menu will offer Asian fusion entrees with a focus on seafood – yum!

Mid week ramblins

  • I love the QOTD feature on Vox -  it really provides no excuse not to post regularly.
  • Which is a good thing because I have been extremely busy these days.  I resigned from my company a couple of weeks ago, so I've been busy wrapping up the work on the projects in my portfolio and transitioning out of the company.  They tried to get me to stay for four weeks, um no! 
  • This week has been weird, I've had to wake up before 8:30, put on "work" clothes, drive in morning traffic, and sit in an office setting – I know this is the norm for the majority of the workforce, but if you haven't done it in a long time there is an adjustment phase.  No more conference calls in my pjs and flip flops.  The trade off is definitely worth it, I can now hopefully have less work related stress and be able to enjoy my family instead of slaving for a corporation that doesn't give a shit about me!
  • I'm loving my new MacBook.  I'm a bit anal retentive when it comes to keeping it dirt and scratch free so I'm looking for the best palm rests and case protector to maintain her pristine condition.  The name "Baby" was suggested – I kinda like that, so that's what I've been calling her.
  • I caught M. Night Shyamalan's Lady in the Water on opening day.  I'm a big M. Night Shyamalan fan, I hate to say, a lot of that has to do with his cuteness.  After having high hopes for The Village I departed the theatre extremely disappointed.  I again had high hopes for M's new feature film, Lady in the Water.

The premis of the story…..

a sea nymph, called a "narf" (Bryce Dallas Howard), arrives in the pool of a  Philadelphia apartment building on a mission to inspire a writer (M. Night Shyamalan) who will change the world. With the help of the building's superintendent Cleveland Heep (Paul Giamatti) and just about all the other tenants, the narf named "Story" attempts to find her "vessel" and then return safely to her aquatic home (via the swimming pool) of "The Blue World" without being harmed by the dangerous wolf-like creatures called "scrunts."

Although I feel that the story was very "creative" and an attempt to not give moviegoers the same ole same ole – it was a bit far fetched!  I enjoyed Paul Giamatti's character, Mr. Heep and surprisingly M. was impressive in an acting role.  M I will continue to support your efforts, since you are my baby's daddy, but you must try harder next time!

Hopluv's rating: Entertaining, however Lady in the Water drowns in stupidity.

  • I saw the trailer for The Pursuit of Happyness starring Will Smith.   Will portrays Chris Gardner, a struggling single parent that decides to change his financial/living situation by landing a stock brokerage internship.  The son is played by his real son Jaden.
    I'm really excited about this one!

  • It's hot enough to fry an egg on my forehead here in Dallas!  I haven't had to be out in the heat, but this week I've had that unpleasant experience.  My poor car isn't use to it either!
  • Saw the making of Janet Jackson's video for "Call On Me" with Nelly.  Me tinks me likes 🙂
  • We looked at puppies this past weekend.  There are two Mini Schnauzers, Bentley and Berlin and a Hotot rabbit named Buggs in the household already – so we need another dog like we need a hole in our heads.  But I just love puppies!!!!  Specifically, I want an Italian Greyhound – the one in the middle is calling my name!   

Well thats all for now – nuff said!

QotD: Sugar, Sugar

What was

your favorite candy when you were a kid? How does that compare to now?

Candy nowadays…not so much.  I really don't eat candy as an adult.  Every now and then I might get a craving for a Hershey's with almonds.

QotD: Back where I’m from…

Soda? Cola? Pop? What do you say? Any other regional words that set you apart?
Question submitted by Gladys.

I'm from Louisiana, I grew up hearing the word "soda" so that's what I say.

More New Toys

I don't know what the hell is wrong with me..buying all this new stuff!!! Today I broke down and bought a Macbook.  I will be giving up the laptop by company provides next week since I resigned on Friday.  So, I needed a portable of my own.  I have a Mac Mini, but I must have "portability".  Can you believe they were sold out in all but one store in the Dallas area?  Sheesh you would think these things were selling for $25 bucks or something!

Here are two pics I snapped of it when I got home.  Now…what should I call her?
