"what's on your mind?"
"too much" i replied.
"what's on yours?" i asked.
"you" was his response.
and that's how it started, on a cold and wintry day, in december. and here we are in february. i can't say it hasn't been fun. it's been that and more, so much more. what will happen? how will it end? or will it? i don't know. not a clue. but i'm excited to find out. whichever way it goes. such has been my life for the past couple of months. when i said in an earlier post, that i was doing things out of my norm, i wasn't kidding. i've done things and put myself in situations that i've never dreamed i would ever be in. but hey, life is short right? right. at least, that's how i justify my actions. the story continues.
in other news, lent started last week. for all you non-catholics, lenten season marks the beginning of the lenten journey towards easter sunday. it's commemorates the period of forty days that jesus spent in the dessert, facing temptation. so as a catholic, i'm going to practice my faith and give up things that i really, really love from ash wednesday (which was last week) until easter sunday. last year, i gave up cokes. i know it sounds trite to most of you, but you don't understand. for me to stop drinking coke is a HUGE sacrifice for me. i am a coca-cola addict. seriously. i'm thinking of starting a support group. i did it for the first time last year and made it all the way through i can't tell you how proud of myself i was! so to up the ante, so to speak, this year i'm also giving up chocolate. gasp! yes, it's true. i'm also a chocoholic. all i have to say is, my friends better watch out, that inner bitch that has been asleep in me all this time, is about to wake the hell up. run!
this weekend was all-star weekend here in houston. basketball players, celebrities, the media, the paparazzi, the fans, all kinds of people were in my fair city! to say that the traffic has been horrendous, is an understatement. it's been downright ugly. last night the police had to be called to shut down the galleria mall. why? because the crowds had exceeded the legal capacity. can you believe that? people were scrambling to get there in hopes of spotting a "celebrity" ---really. whatever floats your boat, i guess. it's been fun though, people watching. i did a lot of that these past few days. and the weather has been phenomenal. too bad i just watched the news, and meteorologist said rain and cold weather are making a comeback this week. -only we have schizophrenic weather!
oh yeah, i almost forgot. i won a contest. my friend over at http://rawknrobyn.blogspot.com/
held an anti-valentine's day contest for the best poem. we had to complete the following sentence: "dear cupid, will you..."
in fifty words or less. here was my entry:
Enough already. I get it. I'm un-cupid-able. Now go away. Die a thousand deaths. But please leave some chocolate for me. Help a sista out.
Alright, so never mind that I totally didn't follow instructions (Dear Cupid, will you
..."), and never mind that it was a lame attempt at poetry, but did you get the part where i won
??? exactly. that's all that matters. ok, so it was a three
way tie. first time ever, i heard. (um, this is the first time she held this contest) forget all that. what matters is that i wrote the poem and i won. yay. i never win anything. :)
alright boys and girls, this muchacha is tired. and unlike some of you in the united states, i have to work tomorrow. thanks for dropping by, come back for more. you know you want to...
happy monday all!
