There have been a string of crimes at school…  This is an email I received today from the police department.

Dear Students,

I’m pleased to let you know that this morning, Crazy School Police apprehended an individual in an attempted burglary in a Directional Campus residence hall. Residents in this hall spotted the attempted burglary and notified Crazy School Police who then caught the person and made the arrest. It is believed that this person has been responsible for the recent rash of student residence burglaries and he will be charged with all those crimes.

I want to thank Crazy School Police for their efforts and also acknowledge and thank the students who called the police and enabled this arrest. Though this arrest may resolve this person’s threat to our community, I ask that you maintain your diligence in keeping your room doors locked, take notice of anyone attempting to enter a building behind you and immediately notify Crazy School Police…

Now that’s not all of the email but a few sentences (bold) bother me the most.  Because it’s believed that this person is responsible, we’ll just go ahead and charge them with ALL THE CRIMES.  Maintain your diligence about locking doors?  You safe, rich children would think to sleep with your doors unlocked and your windows open because one person was apprehended?  What the thunder?  While I would like to believe you’re smarter than that, I know it’s not true. So sad, so sad.

Pleasantly Surprised

leave a comment »

So over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working to cultivate friendships with people who were just acquaintances.  …And I must say, I’ve been pleasantly surprised.

Last night, one of my new “friends” told me that I was a very strange mix.  I gave him the double take and an excuse me?  He says you know part scientist – part girly-girl.  Here’s my scientist part below.  I don’t know what image I should find to represent the girly me.  I’ve always thought of myself as more of a tomboyish type.  Hmph.

Bacteria growing on Xgal...

In other news, I’ve met quite a charming young gentleman.  I met him back in 2007, but I didn’t really take that opportunity to get to know him well.  There wasn’t that much that I could really do – it was the week before I graduated from undergrad.  *Le Sigh – a much simpler time in life*  Anyway, he’s a total sweetheart, or so it seems.  I’m hoping to get to know him better.  As I learn more, I’ll keep you posted.

I’m off to a night of socializing with some of my colleagues.

Compound Troubles

leave a comment »

As if it wasn’t enough that my arms feel like Jell-O, I have to deal with another irritating issue.  The night before last and half-way through yesterday it snowed.  Of course this was wonderful at said moment because I was planning to skip work and watch the inauguration festivities on tv and comment with some friends on the http://www.cnn.com/live jumpoff with Facebook.

Well, when I was driving home from the gym last night, I noticed that my oil light came on.  Very strange.  This morning I warmed my car up, preparing to head to lab.  Things didn’t flow as smoothly as I would have liked.  As I drove towards school, the main thing I noticed was my car…shaking.  ::Blank Stare::  What the thunder?  I did what any female in my position would do – I called my Dad.

So now I’m sitting here at the Wal-Mart Automotive Center.  Hang me please.

A certified goon – probably LaTarian’s big sister – just walked up and sat down at the bench near me.  I was talking on my cell phone (quietly) and working on this entry when she whips out her Multimedia Boombox Cell Phone and plays Chris Brown’s “Take You Down” out loud.  No earbuds, no naaaahthing.  And then you have the gall to turn the volume up.  I politely gave her a glaring stare.  You think it bothered this trollop?  Not at all.  Then I looked over and saw exactly what was wrong.  I mistook her for LaTarian’s older sister when she is CLEARLY Eli Porter’s fam.  She was real dead about the eyes.  Ignorance officially excused. Now I am typing to a hoodrat’s playlist and have the pleasure of hearing Plies – Please Excuse My Hands.  I am so tempted to take a photo with MacBook.  Oh, if only this thing had a camera on the back [inside the apple logo…wouldn’t that be hot?] and I wouldn’t have to turn the laptop completely around…

She is checking out. Whew!  I feel like Oprah Winfrey in The Color Purple.
“And when I seen’d you, I knew there was a GOD!”

These two Caucasian ladies have come in with her kids

Now that my eyes and ears can breathe a sigh of relief.. *le sigh*
On to other compound trouble news.
My beloved pink iPod nano – the old school one with the aluminum… has died.  This morning, I went to plug it up to my speakers to get my day started.  A Tribe Called Quest is forever implanted on the screen at 0:00.  I pressed play, Menu, the center button and all of that – nothing helped.  Rest In Peace would probably be best suited here.  But I’m trying to resuscitate her.  Pink Panther – hold on.
How will I ever make it through my cardio warm up, if I cannot have Just Fine or Single Ladies blaring into my ear drum? iPod guilty pleasure? Trina.  I know, i know…

Yellow Balloon.

with one comment

Today I was walking home from grabbing the Sunday paper at the store.  I was walking along the sidewalk and no one was around.  I was deep in thought reflecting all that transpired last night, when something brushed by my ear.  A yellow balloon just grazed me and continued bouncing along the way.  It was so strange.  Where did it come from?  There wasn’t a string on it or anything.  As I walked, I later saw it resting in a field.

Damn, my swagger need a bodyguard.

If you know me, you know all my standby phrases.  They’re usually very strange and ridiculous – always catching an unsuspecting listener off guard.

Damn, bishes must wanna be me.  Please exit stage right. Immediately.

I can’t be bothered.  I just can’t.  I’ve already scratched you off my list, yet you still continue to trick yourself into believing we’re still friends?  I’ve come to accept it. That’s just you. No shame in your game.

I’m gonna treat you like a Subaru and let the universe take care of it.

Get a grip. Please and thank you. The end.

I don’t need no hook…

…for this shit.

Younger Classmate: I don’t know… what is it called… ri-ko-ketting?
Class in Unison: Ricocheting.

Is this for real? Was she serious?  She was of foreign origin, so she gets a pass.  Next time she will go directly to jail; do not pass go and do not collect $200.

I’m doing my best to keep a low key weekend.  I haven’t had good rest in a while.  It’s serious too.  3 out of 5 days this week my left eye has been twitching.  Someone suggested eating a banana.  Didn’t help.

The world is just a crazy place man…

TRAGEDIES  OF  THE  WEEK. 

  1. This girl is all on my TV screen with that backwards B on her face. Now let’s stop and think about this for a minute.  If I carve your face, why would I write a mirror image of what I see? I wouldn’t.  They should have known that ham did it herself.  Clue number one and a BIG one at that! 
  2. JHud’s mother and brother found murdered.  This is just sad and I can’t even elaborate on how tired I am of these reckless, violent crimes.
  3. Somebody ditched B.Scott.  Now if you know me, then you know I love B.Scott.  How the hell is somebody gonna walk away from B.Scott? Answer me that!  If B.Scott can’t get no d then I have no chance in hell.  It is truly a recession.  Another thing: B’s video JanetJackson video is making me step my game up!
      
  4. Halle Berry pressed the enter key to turn on a computer that is a multi-network system with >7 monitors. WTH Halle Berry.  Well… it is Swordfish.  John Travolta, you need a new lacefront.
