On Wednesday, I got the unexpected treat of getting VIP seating to a B.arack Ob.ama Rally. I was close enough to touch him and the event was quite inspiring. There were people there cheering for him from all walks of life. It was a wonderful feeling seeing all of the support he has. He took questions from the audience and had very good answers. He is quite tall and way more handsome than he seems on television. His se.cret ser.vice detail was super duper tight. They were shielding the brother with their bodies 2 circles deep. I got the distinct feeling that I was arms length away from America's next President. It gave me goosebumps! This is history in the making. Remember to vote on Tuesday if you haven't already and Texas peeps make sure you come back to caucus at 7pm.

Why must women be so catty at work? Sometimes, I feel like I'm in 8th grade all over again!!! Everyone makes it their business to make sure no one else is slacking. EVEN WHEN THEY ARE THE ONE SLACKING!!!! I have gotten to the point where I just close my door and ignore all the madness. Then there's the crabs in the barrel syndrome. And not all crabs are black!!! These chicks at my job want to make sure you are not getting anymore power or position than they have. My questions is, "Is it taking any money out of your check?" Why does it matter what I'm doing???? I thought by 30-something we would be over this. But as Katt Williams says, the haters got to do they job, so just let them do what they do. I plan on adding another 2o by the summer!!! *two fingaz*

Okay, so I went to the daycare to pick up M3 the other day and ended up getting violated by a 1 year old. This particular day I had on a pair of low rise slacks from Old Navy. Well, as I bent down to scoop up my 1 year old, I felt a slight draft behind me. I knew what was exposed, but no one was behind me, so I felt like it would be okay until I finished greeting M3. Unbeknowst to me, one of M3's classmates had went around behind me. This kid proceeded to stick her index finger down my crack. *faint* I was OUTDONE. I just stood hurriedly, got my kid, and left. I was too embarassed to say anything to the kid or to the teacher. I just wanted to get out of there as fast as I could. No more bending over at the daycare, one of those kids is "fast fingers freddy"!!!

Do you ever get your "case of the Mondays" on Sunday night? Try as I might, I always end up feeling terrible Sunday night because I have to go back to work. My niece told me that people who hate going to work need to find a job they like. My reply was that there was no job in the world that I would like enough to want to go to every day. Sounds lazy, I know. But that whole "what would you do if you didn't have to work for money" takes me back to my line from Office Space. I wouldn't do NOTHING!!!! Some say, "oh, you'll get bored". NO, I WON'T. I can find plenty to do that does not require working for someone else. Anyway, I just have to tell myself, my favorite line from The Great Debaters. "You have to do what you HAVE to do, to be able to do what you WANT to do."
