In Barbados!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I love it! Off all the places I have been, this one so far is the most beautiful!
Although work usually keeps me from doing anything, I at least plan on renting a jet ski and go riding on the ocean. I have a morning support and training shift, so I should have a little time to get out!!Work WILL NOT take up all of my time this week!
Sorry that first pic is so dark, but they turn off the lights at night so as not to attract the nesting turtles on the beach. But then again, my camera it OLD!!!

Excedrin RT

I think that this is the funniest faux commercial ever made! Especially from when she says "Oh no you didn't". Why? Because it points out things that black people go through everyday.

I had to let a caucasian co-worker have it yesterday because he called me racist! I had to explain to him that i'm not racist, i'm conditioned to react to white people.
Here's what happened.

He said that he had to go to the bathroom. When he came back, I asked him if he had washed his hands. I asked that because he has a bad habit of touching people when he talks to them. He asked why I asked him and I told him *and yes I was wrong* that I noticed that white people don't wash their hands when they use the bathroom. He called me racist and that's when I had to let him have it.

First I explained to him that racism is a hatred or intolerance of people of other races. It's also a belief that inherent differences among the various human races is what determines cultural or individual achievement. I don't subcribe to that belief nor do I hate any person because of their race. So I told him that the next time he decides to call someone out of their name, to please know what he is calling him.

I then went on to explain to him that he would never know what it feels like to experience the prejudice in the same form that a Black person does each and every day. He doesn't get the stares when he goes shopping. He doesn't experience white women getting off of an elevator when he gets on. He doesn't have to worry about being thought of as less than because of his skin color. He doesn't have to experience any of the racial bullshit that other minorities, especially Black people, have to experience. One of my Latino co-workers even joined in the conversation to get him straight.

But after all of that talking, he didn't understand and I told him that he never will. I knew that he didn't understand when he said "ya'll need to just get over it". At that point I was done with him. I haven't spoken to him since and don't think that I will.

Temptation Island

As I mentioned in my last post, dudes are coming out of the woodworks asking for dates, sex, and whatever. I swear that this shit just doesn't happen when i'm single. But the minute I start seeing someone that I like, it happens.

Now even though there is no committment, I have decided that CC is the only person that I am going to date and he's actually on the verge of becoming my boyfriend (and vice versa). We actually talked about that just last week. The problem is that when dudes try to holla, it's tempting as hell to give in and holla back. I don't normally date more than one dude at a time, and won't this time, but for some reason, I sometimes want to give in (especially last Sunday). I guess it's just that male *not just gay male* mentality that there is always something better.

I went out with my BeatMug to a private birthday party near downtown Atlanta. I swear to God that I must have had on some gay pheromones because within 10 minutes, my boy Goofy was telling me that So and So wanted to holla at me. I told him to tell So and So that I was attached, but thanks. But that didn't stop So and So from flirting.

Then we headed over to Django's where you are guaranteed a good time. First let me tell you that it was hot as fish grease in that bastard (it was 95 degrees that day). I saw a dude there who was also at the party *damn he was a cutie* and when I tell you that this brotha was sweating bullets, I ain't lying. And believe me, I know sweat (ya'll know I drip sweat like a leaky faucet). !!! So I offered him a napkin since I keep a few in my back pocket. He said thank you and started wiping his forehead. I then headed to the bar. A few minutes later, he tells me "if you weren't taken, I'd ask you on a date". I honestly didn't know what to say to the brotha but "Aww aren't you sweet". Apparently, he had asked BeatMug if I was seeing someone to which BeatMug told him that I was. *Thank goodness for a best friend who knows that I would have liked this one*.

Then I get home, and BeatMug tells me that his ex-boyfriend's best friend had also asked him if I was seeing someone. BeatMug also told him that I was seeing someone.

Now, I ain't gone lie. It's hard as hell to tell someone who's trying to get with you, that you are seeing someone, especially when you are attracted to them. But I can do it because I use the rifle method when dating a brotha. A lot of brothas will date anywone that shows them attention, but not me. I'm looking for a partner in life and I just don't think that dating multiple people allows me to get to know each person on a partnership level. In addition, dating multiple persons can cause hellafied drama if emotions and feelings start to come in to play. Hey, call me a serial monogamist if you think the label fits.

So for now, it's just me and CC. And it seems like it may be that way for a while.

I swear that I am going to post soon. In the mean time, does this picture not display the amazing stupidity of some people?
