Monday Monday

My one-day weekends are getting to me something serious. But, alas, this weekend will be not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 days. Yay!

I want to do it all!!

I know Saturday will be spent going to the laundromat and to the grocery store. I want to go to a club/lounge that night. Sunday, I want to go to the zoo or a museum. Monday, I want to go to 6Flags. Jirzygurl, wanna skip work and go with?

I am seriously broke until Friday. This week will be interesting as I need to find money to borrow from SOMEONE.

Can't remember if I blogged about this, but my friend is staying with me for a little bit. He's young, gay, and talkative.

My mom has requested she meet him, which is fine. She says she doesn't agree with his lifestyle choice. I've been putting her off as long as I could because I think she's going to say something embarrassing.

This morning, she calls me to ask about him again. Then she says.......

*drumroll please*

She's concerned because there are young boys next door and she doesn't want anything to happen to them.

I was in shock and awe.

She continues to say:
You know he wasn't born like that and if someone can do it to him, he could do it to someone else. People embrace gay people instead of questioning it and you know its not right.

I said I have to go. My temperature was rising and we all know there is a special place in Hell for people who disrespect their parents. But, I've always wondered about parents who disrespect their children or ministers who judge everyone. Hmmmm...


I miss having my apartment to myself. I miss eating my own food on my own time. I miss not always having someone else there. I'm selfish with my space, I know..which is why I don't have children. Also...I talk to people all office is so noisy. When I go home, I just want to lay back and listen to jazz or write or just BE.

I'm grateful to be alive right just let me shut up and drag my ass into work....4 more days to go....

so don't know if this was before or after the 2 previous posts, but seems like you had a banging (literally and figuratively) weekend! hope the long weekend is a fun one.

I know what you mean about appreciating your own space. look at it this way, you'll enjoy it more now that you haven't had it.

lol...isn't it funny how parents can take you to that point?
