Sorry Obama… ii couldn’t vote for you

Posted in Barack Obama, be the change, mommy, voting, winter by Tanae' A. on February 14, 2008
I just want the entire world to read my story about why i COULD NOT vote just so that my man Barack knows that I was not just taking up space in the world when I had a clear chance to make a change… I was about ten minutes from home when my mommy called me to tell me that she was waiting for me so that we could go vote together. I was so super excited as I walked into my front door. Mommy was ready so I ran upstairs to slip on some jeans and then we were ready to go but I was distracted by my nephew so she decides to rush me. Here she is running for the exit and I TOLD HER IT WAS SLIPPERY OUTSIDE and what do you know she fell and busted her tail in that big ugly red coat of hers. At first I was scared…dear Jesus Mama done killed herself tryna make a change…but then she starts laughing. You shoulda seen her sliding down these steps cracking up like there was no tomorrow. So ten minutes later we get her up and we are on our way. The voting spot was just up the street from my house so we decided to walk, no use getting in the car when we can just get in some exercise. We are walking up this street and mommy is holding onto my arm for dear life, someone should teach her how to walk on ice. She is slippin and slidin everywhere [[and she had on boots so I dont know why she was slippin]] and the whole time I’m cracking up. So, this idiot [my mother] tells me that we are voting at the hall so we walk all the way over, she slips and almost falls again, and there is no one there. So we standing like a bunch of idiots in the street wondering where everyone is. I call Aunt Boone to ask her where we were voting at and she tells me that she told BooBoo the Fool that we were voting at the Middle School but she didnt want to hear it. So we walk in the OPPOSITE direction all the way to the middle school and we are almost there. And what do you know, this fool falls again right on her butt lolzz. Ok, maybe I shouldnt laugh at her but how do you fall three times just to go vote… funny thing is: SHE FELL IN THE GRASS…how that happens I will never know. So we go into this school and im cracking up laughing. Finally we make into the voting area and there is this camera there for ABC news and I told my mother DO NOT WALK WHERE THE CAMERA¬† IS but she grabs my arm and pulls me anyway talking about the camera aint on. Well how she know it aint on?? So, anyways, all these nice corny looking people are sitting at this table so we walk up super excited and thats when it happens. “Ma’am, when you registered to vote you failed to check Democrat or Republican, you didnt check a box so unfortunately you cannot vote today.” Okay uuummm…. “Well what DID I check off??” “You didnt check anything but you can fill out this form and vote next time.” Ok, can I smack you please?? What do you mean I cant vote. Do you not understand that I have been looking forward to this for forever and I cant vote?? I dont understand. Someone explain this mess to me. I want to vote today, right now. Obama is depending on my vote… OMG!! I cannot believe this. So I very angrily go to fill out this stupid stupid paper and I forced this man to give me a sticker saying I voted because it truely was not my fault that I could not vote and I think that a small minor thing like that should not keep me from voting. I think that is discrimination of the worst kind and I do not approve lol. So, Barack Obama, I am sorry that I could not vote for you on tuesday but I really wanted to and I hope that you understand that.
Oh, and four minutes after we walked past the camera I get a text message saying that someone saw me and mommy dearest on the news… how lame is that??
And for all of you praying people out there, pray for mommy’s booty cause it really hurts. Well actually, pray for her booty, hip, ankle and shoulder cause she hit all of it when she fell and now she limping around the house like somebody just beat up her whole right side lol.

i need an upgrade…

Posted in phone, winter by Tanae' A. on January 17, 2008
…so a few months back i decided to join the t-mobile team because I was so tired of all the other booty phone companies. I signed up, paid the price and got this lil rinky dink phone to go along with it. dont get me wrong… i like t-mobile but this phone is killing me. I have decided, it is time for an upgrade. One problem… I am technically not allowed to upgrade until i have been with them for a year but who wants to wait that long?? Usually my brother in law will hook me up with a phone for cheap but he dont even have any right now. So the next best thing would be to go to the t-mobile store tomorrow after work to go and change my plan. There’s always a way around a rule and I have found it so prayerfully, by the time the weekend is over I will have a sidekick, bluetooth, or wing to show off. And if I dont get a wool upgrade than i guess… i’ll slap myself in the face lol.
I was going to go out today to get my wonderful phone but as you all can see it is snowing. and as most of you know, I HATE SNOW… but I am not going to complain, instead i am going to pray that the bus comes on time so that I dont have to stand for too long. Please Jesus Please!!!!

a good weekend=a bad monday

Okay, its not really a bad monday but…

Friday I really had a serious attitude. It was raining outside, I didn’t feel well and my sister was getting on my last half of nerve. After 45 minutes of standing on the bus stop I hopped on the first thing I saw coming. My mom had to pick me up somewhere cause I got on the wrong bus on purpose and then she had to run to the dollar store. Jazzy persuaded me to go to Jason’s Woods with them so I went home to change clothes. We drove for about an hour and then decided to turn around because the weather was too bad and we were hydroplaning [i learned that in driving school ha] and swerving like crazy. So we settled on going to Red Lobster and we ate some of the best food ever. The waiter was really really nice so we left him a big tip and then we went to the pool hall. Me and Matt shot around for a lil bit while Jazzy and Shay looked at us like we were crazy and then around 1 we got in the house.

Of course I was mad as hell when I had to wake up at 8 on Saturday morning. I got dressed and was out the door at 9. I managed to make it to Amy’s to get my hair done about 10 minutes after 10 and I didn’t leave there til about 1 cause mommy got lost coming to pick me up. So, with a headache and growling tummy, I hopped in the car. I was so hungry that I ate a half of chicken box and some food from wendy’s LoL!! so fat!! But anyways… we stopped at the halloween store so that I could get some stuff for the party I was going to go to. We got back in the house and I packed all my bags and was ready to go. Shink plucked my nerves for 10 hours before we left out the house but once we got to Jazzy’s she straightened up a bit. Once we got there our dacquiris (sp) were done and our food was cooking. We walked next door for a while and soon and very soon we sat down to eat. Ronnie hooked us up with some smothered pork chops, cabbage, spanish rice and corn pudding… the food was on point!! After that, Jazzy helped me get my outfit together and then we left to go to Dougs party.

Since we couldn’t find a ride we ended up walking… let me tell you. I had on a mini skirt, some fishnet stockings, some knee boots, and a lil ass black shirt… that outfit does not mix with walking up the street for 20 minutes in the freezing cold. But, I did it and we finally made it. When we got there it was really early still but there were mad people in there. It had to be no later than 8:30 and half of them were already drunk… it didn’t make no sense. We walked around and talked to everyone for a while and then we sat down and watched these people act like fools. Surprisingly, we didn’t drink anything that night besides the dacquiris (sp) that Ronnie made for us… and let me tell you, it is funny watching other drunk people when you’re sober LoL!! but anyways, we left around 12:30. Got in the house, ate some left over food and crashed.

We woke up Sunday morning ready to go to church. [well me and Shink were ready, Jazzy wanted to stay home] Eventually we got her dressed and made her come and she was glad that she did. The sermon was right on time and I think it was something that we all kinda needed to hear. We went to Golden Corale, laughed with Mommy a lil bit and eventually drove back to the house. Mommy went inside and we sat in the car and took the best nap this world has seen. An hour later we were on our way back up Sycamore and into the church. The choir was on point!! The service was extremely long and I was extremely tired but I still stayed til the end. We walked up the street and helped Jazzy with her project that she waited til the last minute to do. By the time we were finished it was 10:30 and I was beat. I went home and hopped face first in the bed and was pised when my alarm went off this morning.

I was so tempted to not come to work because I really feel like crap. My head hurts, my stomach hurts, I think I have a fever and I just do not feel good at all. I will probably end up going home early cause if not I do not think I will make it thru the rest of this day. It is freezing cold outside so I was really mad when I walked out the house this morning. Lucky for me, I put on a sweater and some boots and a scarf cause if not I would probably freeze to death.

I was going to go to dance rehearsal today after work but when I got up I quickly changed my mind. I may just wait and go next monday cause there is no way I am going to make it today. The only thing I want to do is go home and get in the bed… anybody got a thermometer??

…if only i could stop time

Posted in clothes, cold, winter by Tanae' A. on October 16, 2007

i hate the cold, and the wind, and snow, and the rain [except for summer rain, that is absolutely beautiful]. I hate gloves and scarves and hats and long sleeved shirts. I hate long johns and leggings and ear muffs and boots. I hate coats and having to wear 3 pairs of socks. I hate cleaning off the car and shoveling the side walk. Plain and simple…I HATE WINTER!! It is the absolute worst part of the entire year and it is on its way back again just to humiliate me for a while.

Now, in preparation for the freezing cold weather I have to go down in the basement and carry up the big containers that I put all my winter clothes in. I have to pull out all my coats and put away all my flip flops. I have to buy some new long johns and a few long sleeved shirts. I have to get a new pair of ear warmers and a personal heater would be good too. I just dont want to go thru all this mess.

I want to stop time right where it is. It’s not warm out but God knows that I can surely deal with this little nippiness rather than the treacherous cold that comes in the next month. I just dont want it to get cold. I dont want it to snow. I dont want to deal with all the unnecessary things. I dont want to have to make hot cocoa first thing in the morning. And I dont want to have to put the extra blanket on my bed. I dont want to not be able to sit outside when I get tired of sitting in the house. I dont want to not be able to go for a walk or just hang outside with the peoples. I just want to stay right here in this weather until the spring comes again.

Lord Jesus I pray that we dont get any snow or really cold weather this year. Please just let it stay above 55 degrees at all times and if you would just put a lil stop to the wind that likes to abuse my face on most days. Please, God, just be a lil sympathetic and hold back all the sleet and the rain… as a matter of fact just put a stop to all precipitation until summer comes back around. Thank you soo soo much…
