I do it to myself

Being completely lost in thought with my nose stuck in my love and life psychology text book, I am struck by how often I find myself wanting more romance in my life. How much I wish I had a romantic man in my life, and how that would make me so happy. I don't want to say it's a girl thing, but it probably is. I'm allowing my mind to run with this thought, trying to be thoughtful and applicable with the highlights from my text book when my eyes focus on my tv - nay, the stack of dvds and books on said tv. Then it hits me - I do it to myself. 

I'll be my own romancer... until this romantic man comes in and sweeps me off my feet that is. Nonetheless, I'm not going to be loveless just because I can't find love.

Tone Bone Malone

Sunday fun-day! Tony was the live music at Blitz 21. Jonny joined him for a few numbers.

This is how I started my evening - just trying to get a parking spot...

I guess I could have made it clearer

When I said what I'm looking for most in a guy is consistency, I should have elaborated. I want niceness, consistently. I want thoughtfulness, consistently. I want you to open car doors, flirt with me, answer your fucking phone and hold my hand, consistently. I don't want you to treat me special till I sleep with you, than treat me like anyone else. 

I appreciate the level of comfortableness two people can get by growing close and these charming, simple gestures can be innocently dropped because of the connection a couple gets is deeper and so meaningful...

But, don't forget the ride to that comfortableness includes the consistent sweetness blah blah blah I listed above. Don't hate me. I'm a girl, sometimes.

If boots were made for walking...

What in the world are six inch high white with snake print heels that are studded made for?
Sheesh. I love these shoes. I used to work the clubs all the time, but I've been out of practice. I'm going to need to work my calf muscles and balance back up before wearing these beauties out in public.

From Ghetto to Fresh in 5 days flat!!

Back in August, some PUNK did a hit and run on my Matrix. Crushed me. Luckily, I've been able to save up some money (and help from my Father, thanks!!) to FINALLY get my ride from ghetto to fabulous. I pick her up after work today. So excited. Updated pics to come later.

Random Acts of Kindness

It's pouring rain while walking to the bus stop, I was running a few minutes late, stressed out by a co-worker making a comment yesterday that I dress inappropriately - which was weighing heavy on my mind as I picked out my outfit this morning. I arrive to my work station and I have an inter-company letter from the main hospital on my desk. It's from a woman I've never met, only speak with over the phone, sent me a gift certificate to the cafe in my building.

Thank you, Deanna. Thank you for recognizing that I'm new, that I'm pleasant and easy to work with. Made my morning.
