Been Gone for a Minute....

I guess you guys deserve a post.

I've been meaning to write. I have stuff to write about, but I haven't quite felt like putting stuff on "paper."

I got a raise at my job but not in the respect department. My boss still freaks me out because I can't read him and maybe he can't read me either. So, we look at each other like...what?

He is smarter than I thought and he hipped me to some game. This chick is envious of my position and tries to upstage me. She tries to upstage him, too. I don't know. I think she thought that when Aladdin left, she would be queen.

Ummm...slow your row...I feel like slapping her. She's whiny and annoying. I liken her to a chihuaha.

I'm content with my lil $2 raise. I'm going to see if I can go salaried in 3 months. Of course, to a higher raise.

I've convinced myself I want to be single. But....ummmm...yes

My ballroom house is having a ball in October. I'm on the board and am working hard on that. I'm excited, but lately, I've been wanting to be alone.

Best friend is crazy.
Here's the drama:
Her elementary school sweetheart, MJ left and broke her heart when we entered high school. For the past 10 years I've known her, all she could talk about is MJ. How cute he is and how well he wouldve turned out.

Well, they reconnected via myspace.

Long story short, he's totally different from the MJ she thought she knew. He's ghetto. He has a kid. He's just different. He came to NY (he relocated to MD). They ended up having sex and then he said he loved her. It was all poetic and shit as he got on his bus to go home. Then, he never called her. 3 weeks went by and she got a couple of texts. But...nothing. She devised a plan to let her cousin, KD call him and act like she met him. She sent him sexy pictures. MJ talked KD into letting him come to NY to "smash." This was all in the matter of 1 conversation.

I told BFF that it showed what he was about - sex.

She said she was going to get over it. She didn't. (Side note: KD is about to get her ass whopped by me. She was still corresponding to MJ after that)

Last night, BFF decides to text MJ. He actually responds to her. She wanted to "talk.". He was too busy. She text messages to him that she's sprung off the penis (in an essence) and the calls me at midnight feeling like mold that he didn't respond. I wasn't trying to make her feel bad but I couldn't help but say that she was being an idiot and then after how he treated her, how could she even think of sleeping with him again.

She said she's extremely horny.

*shakes head*

I felt bad about telling her what I did but here's how I rationalized it - the problem is bigger than what he did to her. Its bigger than her own hormones. Its about self respect.

So, I'll take her out for a drink tonight to put a bandaid on what I said but...

I would say it again if I could relive the moment again.

I mean, these days...I'm sugar free.
I am giving it to all my friends as of late. I'm telling them the real deal and if they can not handle it...oh well.

What I've noticed is, all of my friends are doing the same. is what it is....

I have more but, until then...later...

Adventures of Twin and Nina

It was my 6th full day at work and I was still dragging my ass. I wanted to lay in my bed, eat Cadbury caramel, and sleep.

He called.

Can you please help me? I have to make 5 choir robes by tomorrow.

How could I say no?

We ate Italian sausage on potato bread, talked about him kicking his neice out of his house (another post entirely) and got to work.

He sewed, I ironed.

We talked about Jill Scott vs. Erykah Badu. Musiq Soulchild vs. Bilal. Dianna Ross. Drag names. Coming out songs. Ball gowns. Having children.

3 1/2 hours later, we were done.

I fell asleep involuntarily, but kept waking up every hour on the hour. Twin is about 6ft tall, 300 pounds.

He would routinely roll over - on my head. on my chest, or just on me.

I woke up to him throwing pillows on me.

What gives, I said.

"You sleep like a lower-case h. I kept waking up with your knee in my side."

"I kept waking up with your body on my head."

We laughed.

"Never again," he said.

I know there will be a next time. There's always a next time.

G.reat Expe.ctations

If something turns out badly and it was the obvious outcome, most would ask: Well, what did you expect?

I'm asking myself that now.

As I crawled up the ladder at this job, every baby step of the way, I've been terrorised in different ways.

I finally thought that my boss and I had an understanding and I could just do my job and just breathe.

The moment I exhaled, I got the wind knocked out of me.

Former Bossan we'll call her Pinkett said, "I want to tell you something and I don't want you to get upset."

I conceded. I was having a good day.

"(Sweetest intern ever who I helped train) JU overheard (your boss)DK, (the worst micro manager)RG and CEO of the company AM talking and DK was blaming his inadequacies on you. AM was heard yelling at DK to fire you.

My jaw was on the floor. My eyes were bulging out of their sockets and its not only because I've stayed late every day for a month (except 2 days), not only did I work 6 days straight for the first 3 weeks, not only have I trained 2 people while I've been in this position, implemented policies and have covered ass well, I am totally blind-sighted.

What did I expect?

Decency and integrity.
Oh, and my work speaking for itself.

But now, I'm tired.

If I stay late, it is to milk the clock. I want my due. I am going to wait this storm and hopefully, I will get fired and a few of my nay sayers - I hope they take the job and know my struggle.

I will sit pretty and stress-free and collect unemployment and do what I am supposed to - write and make-up people's faces.

I already knew they didn't respect women's voices. I knew they didn't like blacks moving up, so really what did I expect.

As the Mind Flexes

Yes, Chris, I stole the title of your blog for the title of this post because your blog title is the dopeness.

This is going to be my verbal vomitting.Here's a montage of mini-posts I've written but haven't sent.

So, here we go.

Silence is Golden

I think life would be a lot simpler, if people learned to shut the eff up. I work a lot with complaints, people wanting to get things from me, yada yada ya..Half of the time, I do not need convincing. If you ask me, I will give it to you if I can. If you ask correctly the first time or if I'm feeling kind that time.I'm stoic that way. If the answer was 'no' on question 1. On question #201, the answer will still be 'no.' That's me. I don't do sweet talk. If I don't see a way I can benefit, unless I'm feeling kind, it will be 'no.'


It's a Thin Line

Why is it that the men who I want to be in my face, I am invisible to and the men from whom I want to be far away are always smiling and profiling. I always feel like I should go hard and approach someone. When I do, they end up being gay, crazy, non-commital, or offer me coke. Yes, offer me coke.

It was a brisk night. LP and I were having Popeye's, when he automatically caught my attention. He was tall, brown-skinned, wearing a seersucker suit with a v-neck white tee, and a tan fedora. It was cute and quirky.

I walked past him to walk out the door, when he said, "Wow, you're really beautiful."

I'm a sucker for compliments and interestingly dressed men.

"Do you want to go with me and my friend to a party?"

"No thanks, I have to work early in the morning."

"Are you scared?"

"Of course not," I laughed and continue to walk out the door.

"If you ever want to, let me know."

LP and I walked outside and started talking, all the while the thoughts were swirling around me.

I kept thinking, "Maybe I should."

So, as he walked out, he said something I didn't hear.

I said, "Hey! Where's this party at again?"

He said, "Well, I'm really late. Me and my buddy Leo are musicians and we're playing tonight. If you want to come, first, we're going to my house to do a few lines."

I said, "Lines as in coke?"

He said, "Yes," I'm guessing he mistook my surprise for excitement.

"You coming," he asked, placing his arm around my waist.

"Watch your hands." He stopped smiling. I felt like I slapped him.

"Well, I'm going to Pinkberry to get a smoothie."

"It was nice to meet you, Don"

I shook my head as I headed to the train station. I knew what he wanted. I knew what he represented, and frankly, I'm not that type of girl.


Support + What Do You Think, Baby?

There is not enough time in the day for anything anymore. As soon as I walk in the door and look up, it's 5pm. Man...I just don't know.

I bought new bras on Saturday. I feel lifted and sexy.

Snapshot from a conversation on Saturday night:
So, Nina, we all already know you're bi-sexual, so why don't you tell us about it."

My mouth dropped to the floor.

"What do you mean Hershey?"

"Just what I said. Don't be shy. Dish."

We all sat along the table eating a pot luck dinner, laughing and joking when someone said we should play dirty hearts - an all out kiss and tell fest.

That question started it all. Hershey always thought there was something special about me. He always thought I had some type of deviance to me. He was searching for something.

"I've never slept with a woman, before."

"I don't believe you."


Amazing what people think about you.

I just want someone to love me. This is the secret I hold near and dear to my heart. This is the thought that I whisper to the darkness.




Love. Me.



In spite all of my flaws. Be the person I can count on. Help me face the fears and the insecurity.


Hold my hand for no reason. Listen to me rant and rave. Raise sand for no reason and vent. Kiss me in times of doubt and be patient with me. Spoon me in the nighttime. Share your thoughts. Play Scrabble. Go to museums. Show me new things and keep me on my toes.


I'm tired of never being 1st choice or never feeling like #1.

My life is in shambles.

This job...this job...this job!!

They hate to see Black people on the come up. To see a Black woman is like -barf-

I'm so tired. I'm so stressed. I'm frustrated.

I just don't know.

I'm trying to tell myself to be strong. Have a positive attitude. Forget the tsunami of shit flowing my way, but my arms are tired of swimming.

Something's got to give.

Sick and Tired

Sick and Tired

I'm searching for something.

I'm frustrated and lonely.

I'm tired.

I'm a horny toad...but that's just because my hormones are having a field day.

I want to feel something. A close connection with a male.

I flirt with a man everyday at work. He's attractive and funny and he rubs my back. He keeps me light.

I glow with the attention he gives me.
Gi and I had cocktails after work and talked about affection. I crave it. It races through my veins like a drug. Blair and Afro would spoon me at night and I would feel small and protected. I remember one night Blair turned with his back to me and I pulled my body close to his and lay my face on the smooth cool skin. I buried my nose and breathed him in. I will never forget that.

Maybe I kept trying to get back to that moment.


I'm tired of being alone.

I'm tired of being strong.

I want to be weak and vulnerable and crumple up into a ball and just be me.

I think that is who my soulmate would be. Someone who will allow me to cry. And I mean that ugly cry where my face is beet red and the snot is falling and my eyes look like little slits.

I'm tired of guarding myself. I want to be treated like something delicate and special.

*cue Najee, Will Downing and Zhane*

Work this week was a nightmare. Our system crashed and since my Blackberry is incapable of mobile we are.

I think I'm sick of having everything on my shoulders all the time.

I'm sick of not being able to count on anyone half of the time.

I'm sick of bum bitch ass females looking me up and down all the time. I'm tired of no self-esteem having big girls. Yes, I'm cute and big and I wear shit that's short or tight, low in the front and back or a combination of all four. And yes. I'm flyy like shit.

I'm sick of bum bitch ass dudes always in my face. You don't want anything but to bone so trot on and leave me alone.

I'm sick of black grooming establishments. Why must I wait 4 hours to get a ponytail or to wash my hair and style it. My hair is 8 inches Why must I wait 2 hrs for the only gay Vietnamese man I've ever met to do my nails? Furthermore, why do I do this to myself on a bi-weekly basis?

Something's got to give because every night I'm too tired to even masturbate or clean or do a load of laundry. Now...the clean underwear is dwindling and I'm ashamed to show someone my apartment. Let's not even talk about the reprucussions of not masturbating regularly.


Sorry ya'll...I just needed to vent.

What I did on my weekend vacation

Well, it wasn't really a vacation or a weekend. I worked for 6 hours on Saturday. Well, technically, I worked for 4 hours and played Scrabble for 2. I'm addicted to Scrabble online. You all should sign up...its and if you leave your e-mail address in my comments, I'll send you my username and we'll play.

Anywho...I went and got another tattoo. And it is huge and beautiful. I've received a lot of questions on it and before I show it to you..let me put your mind at ease. The shit hurt like someone was branding I was under Buffalo Bill's sewing machine....and it felt like that for 4 hours after. I couldn't pick up things and it still hurts to stretch. SO..there

The whole thing. It stretches to the beginning of my bra clasp. It means




in Sanskrit.

Which adds to my existing tatt

Gye Nyame which means God is Supreme. It is a Ghanaian symbol.

And....the pics were taken when the tattoos were fresh so the white substance on my neck is tape glue.

Anywhoo....I am still broke because of it, but I'm happy and I fall more in love with it every time I see it. It looks much better in person.
