Ive been playing Kanye West's "Gold Digger" over and over. For the last 2 days.
It's not like its even a good song, and its not like kanye is a great rapper.
But its catchy as hell.
I just put in the order for the Chef! DVD collection. My birthday present. :)
JPennant: I was just talking to my little brother
JPennant: I was preaching as usual
Glinessa: how is he
JPennant: he's good. he was trying to reach me to wish me a happy belated for weeks.
JPennant: with school and work, he wasnt able to reach me.
Glinessa: cool....and yes, belated
JPennant: So, I was telling him what its like to be 41
JPennant: pretty cool actually'
JPennant: the shit that i used to trip about, I dont really anymore.
JPennant: Anything I trip over, Im to choosing to trip on, knowing the really important shit is nothing to trip over.
JPennant: yeah, it is
JPennant: and having my little brother tracking me down to wish me a birthday.. stuff like that s important to me
JPennant: ze rest.. eh, not so much.
Talking to family is not like talking to others - primarily because of close bonds and shared experiences.
And we were laughing about me buying the Chef! DVD.
He was delighted.
"Oh man, you and Ma loved to watch those shows. She is gonna enjoy this."
To other people, this DVD may seem a frivolous purchase. For me, its more.

He got that ambition baby
Look at his eyes
This week he's mopping floors
Next week, its the fries
Stick by his side.

You'll find yourself in the midst of a favorable financial circumstance. It's a chance to build up your mad stash of cash. You do this more easily when you're working toward a purchase.
Camera.. one month.
To that end.. Mmmm, ramen noodles. Mmmm.
How anal am I?
I regularly defrag my iPod.
Id defrag the camera's memory card too if I could, but the camera is a bit flaky.

To stay or go, say yes or no. The decisions seem tough, but they're really not. If it gives you the jitters, you're on the right track -- say, "definitely yes!" and then show up strong (even if you have no idea what you're doing).
Today's horrorscope continues:
It would be wonderful to have a romantic partner who is not threatened by your solo endeavors, your strength and your desire to be autonomous. But for now, being sweet and non-threatening is just easier.
Writing this down afore I forget:
The dream this morning was about .. me and a difficult girlfriend. Ive been called the Saint of Difficult Women, and you can go by my girlfriends.
The dream was noteworthy for, in actuality, I follow my Virgo archetype being rarely comfortable in serious relationships, any appearances to the contrary. On my end, Im always light on my feet - ready to fly, invariably looking for reasons to leave or to not commit. Even when I do, Im always waiting for the other shoe to drop. That is my ticket to leave. The speed and finality at which I leave when it does, often gone before I can be dumped, is because I usually have my emotional bags packed way beforehand.
Back to the dream. A Difficult Woman (resembling a even more flaky, prickly, independent, self-destructive Le Girl) looked at me and said "You want to be my guy, eh? Ok - youre my guy."
And she meant it.
While continuing to be flaky, prickly and autonomous. :) And Im fine with this.
So, in the dream - here I am with a Difficult Woman. And what gets me is - I can find no reason to leave.
That's why I had to write this down.
Over the years - whenever I post crap like this, blogger crashes, the text inexplicably disappears or some God of Words mischief occurs.
Heh. Why not now?

Sometimes, I watch as the girls get off work at 4am, escorted by burly bodyguards.
Many jump into cabs, some walk out, some take off in their personal cars. The girls range in age from teenagers to .. much older. All races and cultures.
In fact, I get the impression that many of the girls families would be surprised at how some are making their money.
