Life Updates

1. I got a new phone on yesterday when the UPS driver delivered my T-Mobile Dash!!! I have finally joined the ranks of smartphone users. When I saw Fuzzy's at the blogger weekend, I fell in love with it. It's only been one day, but so far I am thoroughly impressed with it's functionality.

2. I got an offer for a new job on yesterday. It's for a tech support representative with a company here in Atlanta. It would involve no travel, which is great. Although it was uplifting to know that I can still impress people in an interview, after seeing the offer letter, I will have to decline this one. They can't even match what I am making now and the vacation time was 3 weeks less than what I have now. BUMP DAT!!!!

3. CC and I are at kind of a standstill because of one issue. He's all top, but i'm not all bottom. This kind of relegates him to "potential boyfriend" status as "potential partner" is now out of the question. Within the next few weeks, I expect this situation to come to and end. I don't want him to become something that he's not, and I will not become something that I am not. Why is this such a problem with gay men????????

4. My work trip to Venezuela was just that, WORK. I didn't get a chance to do anything while I was there. One of those reasons is that everything was soooo damn expensive. An example would be food. We went to Hard Rock Cafe and for 9 people, the bill was $780. And that's just food and soft drinks. An adult beverage was $13 by itself!!!!

5. I'm going to be an uncle again *I think that this makes number 31* and I am a little excited. This is my this particular brother's first child and there is a high possibility that I will be the child's god-father!!

That's all for now as not much is going on in my life!! Feel free to comment.

1) Nice phone. I feel so behind the times now with my little RAZR...*LOL*.

2) I feel you on the vacation time being the nixing factor in accepting the new job. My only issue with leaving my current job is that I have 23 days of vacation plus 4 floating holidays. I know I won't find any positions that'll give me that and I'll have to start at the bottom of the vacation rung over again.

3) Sorry to hear about the incompatibility between CC and you. I think I agree that the ending is in the cards.

4) God damn...Venezuela is expensive.

5) Number 31 for real? Woah!

At least I'm #1 in posting a comment. Haven't done that in a while. Woo hoo!

I like the phone. It's cool. I can't believe the US dollar is that weak there. Call me Ghandi because I would have been fasting. 31-!!!! You have 31 nieces and nephews?!?! Dayum what are you all eating? I hope this was a typo and you meant to type 3.

If you have 31 then you all need to be in Jet or Ebony. I'm serious.

1. Oh no, boys and their toys. Now you are tempting me to get one too.

2. Before you decline the job offer, why don't you tell them that you are really interested in the position but the vacation thing is a stumbling block. If they really want you, they'll negotiate with you. If not, then you've lost nothing by bringing it up.

3. Like the last one, tell him your needs. If he wants what he has now he might be willing to try something new. I'm not saying you'll see his ankles up next to his ears and him hitting that high note like Whitney used to reach, but you might get some change.

4. 1st thing I learned about eating in a foreign country is to stay away from American establishments. Best to go where the natives eat. It's usually much cheaper and better food.

5. 31 and you still get excited? Can you remember all their names and their birthdays. Before my father's mother died, she had 36 grandchildren at the time and I know she could never remember my name

So since you kept it all work, I guess you didn't getting any Latin, 6' something, with long hair, and hot and spicy, like I asked you to pick up. I asked you to do one thing and you didn't get that for me! Shame!

I think Curious is right though, you shouldn't have went to the Hard Rock Cafe. Trust and believe I bet the Venezuelans (I hope that's what they are called), are notgoing there. I think you guys should have went to some of the more local establishments. Rachel Ray says, that's what you should do. When in Rome or in this case in When in Venezuela, do as the Venezuelan's do.
I don't get why you would want to go there. When I'm out of town I hate going to places I can go to when I'm at home.

I get you on the CC thing. Most of the guys I'm attracted to, end up being all top, and unfortunately, I'm not all bottom either. For me though it's not a relationship type of deal, so it's easier for me to walk away much sooner, like the first day. "You won't do what, and all I get is what? Sorry buddy got to go!"

Nice cell phone. It makes me think about how much I need a new one. I think mine is 3 or maybe even 4 years old. On it's last leg. It won't keep a charge, and it's all beat up looking, and the pics when you use the camera part are all blurry. I have been holding out on getting a new one, because I just didn't want to sign up for another 2 year contract, and there is this painting that I have beeen having my eye on so I guess I will just have to wait till the othher leg falls off.

Why don't you like to travel? That seems like the fun part of the job. New booty in new cites!

Hey Baby - now that phone of yours is quite fancy. Chile, ain't no ways I could work something like that. This computer of mine is sho' nuff enough trouble. I gets my grandson down here and he haves to teach me.

I knows about being an aunt. My best friend Ruthie Ann fast ass was having children after children with all her husbands (I thank she got about 7 or 8 or them). I got tired of couting, but congrats to you baby. I don't babysit no more since my patience got too bad so don't ask me.

With Love,
Mrs. Mabel

1. Welcome to the Wonderful World of: Smartphone Users.
2.Kudos to you on the new job offer, it certainly appears that you know exactly what you want income and vacation time are very important factors to be considered. I am not certain exactly what it is you do (job detail), but I gather from reading your blog that you are part of the IT Department and that you specialize in computer programs or something of that nature, if so and you are the lead person on those projects you have a tough job, I remember when they came in to switch our system and the headaches we caused them during installation on the day before we went live it was mayheim!
3.Relationship at a standstill? Pleeze! You betta flip that brotha ova and handle that business!
4. Souuth America (Venezuela) is to damn costly. Why Hard Rock Cafe? No baby try the local joints, less costly and most times good.
5.Hi Uncle Daddy! Just kidding! Kudos to you on yet another member to your very large family, family is the ultimate gift.

1) Dude, that phone is fresh!

2)Umm, if the money and time off are not right, then kick it to the curb! I used to work tech support as well. The right job will find you before you know it. The great thing is that you will always be in demand. I am not surprised to find out that you can still hold your own during the interview process. You are so incredibly vocal via your blog, I would expect nothing less in person.

3) I don't get that totally top or bottom thing when you are in a relationship. Don't get me wrong, I think it is okay to have a preference, especially when you are single or just casually having sex with someone, but when things start getting serious, I think that remaining one or the other when you know it is not conducive to what the other person wants spells something bigger than preference (i.e.- insecurity, control, selfishness). I am glad you are dealing with this now rather than later.

4) Remind me never to go to Venezuela.

5)31 nieces and nephews? Good-googly-moogly! How many brothers and sisters do you have?
