Let's Get Over The Hump (Day)

First let me address yesterday's post. I didn't mean to sound like I was depressed, I was just tired. And when I'm tired, the words just flow. So maybe I am subconsciously in a funk, but consciously I'm cool. But anyway, lets move on to bigger and better things. I don't have much to talk about today. I just wanna share with you somethings that I have recently learned about myself.

1. I am extremely spiteful. I had a peer at work try to call me out for something yesterday and I went the f*ck off in an email. I responded point by point explaining how much more work I did than him and listing all of his faults. I professionally called him everything but a muhfucka. By the time I finished the email, I was shocked at how mean I was. I still sent it, but damn I'm mean. I found out this morning that he called in sick. I hope he didn't do that to avoid me, but I'm pretty sure it did. Why do I find that shit extremely funny?

2. I am a horrible photographer. Let me restate this. I am horrible at taking pictures of myself. It looks so easy, so why do all of my "self portraits" come out looking like I am high or drunk or both?

3. My name is T., and I am an attention-aholic. I checked my blog like 50 times yesterday trying to see if anybody new is reading it. When there were too many people around my desk at work, I went on break and checked from my cell phone. Pathetic, aint it?

4. I really find "The Wayans Brothers" hilarious. When I went to sleep last night, it was on BET and when I woke up (tv was still on) it was on again. I found myself cracking up both times even though the humor is as low brow as it gets.

5. I still sometimes slip into my fake New York accent. I haven't lived there in 19 years, but when I'm talking to someone from up top, I say "yo" and "Ma" a lot more than usual. Must be another subconscious thing.

6. I think I already knew this one, but my face shows everything I am thinking. The other night, I was in line to get a drink at the movies. In another line, there was this short guy about 5'2" with his "girlfriend." She was about 6' 2". I looked a little closer and the woman was a fucking man. He had a weave ponytail and those clear stripper heels on. My face had this quizzical WTF look on it? I tried to not reveal what I was thinking but my facial expression gave away all my confusion. I looked like this:

Aiight, I'm late for work, so I gotta get going. Holla at y'all later.

It was written...

I love the Wayans brothers...never stopped...I even have a secret crush on Marlon...yes Marlon...

Sounds like you need a little anger management for #1! I took a customer service class at work one time that was basically anger management. This was a textbook example of what NOT to do! It's hard though so I feel you.

1) Why do you find it funny? Cuz it is! Maybe I'm too petty, but I love putting people in their place when they try and tell me about myself.

2) Do you take a lot of pics of yourself? Does that tie into number 3? :D

5) Y'know I'm going to ask you to audio post this NY accent. Smooth T vs. New York T.

6) lmao! Love the expression. So you're not a very good liar huh? If it all shows on your face?

1. I am extremely spiteful.
I am too, I did the same thing, proffessionally told a BITCH I would whup the dog shit outta her. Do you know she quit 2 weeks later? *lol* I was laughing too, cause she told all the managers about the email and she was scared.

2. I am a horrible photographer.
I know right, me too...

3. My name is T., and I am an attention-aholic.
That's funny. Ok, T, I'm new to your blog, is that enough attention for you....

4. I really find "The Wayans Brothers" hilarious.
This happened to me the other night, I'm like WTF? Does this ever go off? But I don't find it hilarious....

5. I still sometimes slip into my fake New York accent.
I don't know where I get my fake NY accent from, never been....

6. I think I already knew this one, but my face shows everything I am thinking.
This is hilarious, but my face does the same thing. I could never play poker.

1. you did what you felt you had to do. meanwhile, there's something to be said for not letting someone else's shitty behavior dictate your own. that's giving a mofo a little too much power.

2. you'll get the hang of it eventually. make sure you've got the memory card to hold all of the crappy photos until you get to the good ones. LOL

3. everybody needs attention every now and again. however, if you see yourself needing it too much, you know you betta get with 'attention whore anonymous'. their twelve step plan includes free extrication of folk from your nutsack.

4. i watched it baaaaack in the day. it was funny then, but i haven't seen it since. then again, i ain't really watching bet at all these days.

5. it is.

6. lmao@that look. uh, hopefully the person didn't see your face. i'd hate to have to read about a brotha in the atl getting the beat down from a tranny.

You know you're an asshole know you're going off on a peer that really doesn't deserve such a severe lashing, find it funny and then find it funny. But it's all good sometimes people need to know their place.

as far as the pics, you take pretty good pictures, um remember your post from Saturday :-)

everybody is a little of an attnetionholic but watch out.

I like the wayans bros too

I like the NY accent

and that pic is hilarious. LMAO

Remember that song "It's Written All Over My Face"? I'm the same way ... I can't hide anything.

Stop being so mean.

Personally, unless it's my son ... you better not be calling me 'Ma'.

On #5: Go on and get your Cawfee Tawk on, Brother! I was born and raised in NYC but had to learn to 'Pahk the Cah in Hahvad Yahd' so that folk up here in 'Bahston' could understand me. However, I listen to some Terror Squad or GUnit every morning so I dont lose my Native Tongue...LOL

@ unsaid... Marlon??? are you serious? and I think I managed my anger exactly the way I wanted to.

@ mocha - that shit was too funny. I was walking around like a 6'4" cat today. Like I ran that dude off. And as far as posting the New York voice, I cant do it when I wanna, it just kinda happens and then I'm like where did that come from?

@ living single - welcome and thanx for feeding my need for attention.

@ insanelysane - thanx for playing along. for # 6, when I play poker I have to make an conscious effort to try to give a fake reaction.

@ nikki - I'm keeping all the crappy photos as a source of future comedy. But do you really think I am gonna let anybody see those? Nah, dude/chick at the movies didnt see me, but my friend Jessica saw the look and called me out on it.

@ Ms.New Booty - sup, Ma! LOL. Don't tell me your weaknesses cuz I will exploit them.

@ sista girl - I keep telling people I am an asshole, but they don't beleive me. As far as the pics, you only saw the good one. I got like serious blackmail pictures on my memory card. Like if I ever run for office, them shits would come out under the headline of "T. Cas caught doing crack"

@ Chele - duly noted, I will not be calling you Ma. I try not to be mean, but it was just so much fun.

@ professor - I've seen some joints where people take good pics of themself. I'll work it out one day.

@ chezniki - you just answered my question for me. The accent comes from the music. I'm always listening to some NY stuff. So you are from NY but live in Boston, are you a Yankee or Red Sox fan?

If you give a person an inch, there is always a possibilty that they will try to take a mile. I'm glad you asserted yourself, at the same time, I hope your actions won't affect the work place environment. I hate having drama at work.

I think its sad that BET can only provide throw backs (I love the wayan bros, though) and not produce current sitcoms with black actors...isn't that what they're there for anyway? LOL

The face issue...I get that from people all the time. They say its all in my eyes.

I don't photograph myself bc i don't photograph well.

I never had a NY accent, but I find I sound real proper compared to the people here in DC. LOL.

Checking your blog from your cell? Yeah, I agree with Nikki--look into that 12 step program. LOL

@ tiger - I don't think he will try me anymore. I went angry Black man on him.

@ muffin - I know, its strange b/c I'm a good liar, but I just react strongly

@ scarlett - I'm digging that play on your writing blog. Gimme some more. and that's always been my beef with BET.

@ ms. new booty - as you can probably tell by now, I did your damn tag.

@ stilt - where you know me from???

I never even followed baseball until I moved here, stepped off the bus and saw my first "Yankees S*ck" T Shirt that they wear at all sporting events up here, including at the Bruins (hockey) games. Dont get me wrong, Big Papi is my future BabyDaddy, but I am forced to rout for the Yankees, on GP... Lean Back (thats right), Lean Back (uh huh), Lean Back (that right) Lean Back (well come on!)

#1 some of my co-workers are still cowering from the tongue lashing I gave someone else (they just happened to overhear the conversation) on the phone. I know I'm spiteful. I once slapped my cousin's cupcake out her hand because she wouldn't give me a bite....

#2-I'm not winning any awards or anything but I'm ok. At least I don't put my thumb all in the lens anymore...

#3- I'm the same way *lol* I stay on my Blackberry. At least that phone is good for something

#4- some episodes but not all are funny. I'm still laughing at the fashion choices of Jamie Foxx...Who knew sheer muscles shirts were in in the mid 90s

#5- I have yet to lose my "Chicago" accent....

#6- Facial expressions are worth a thousand words...I can't control my face. I try but I can't do it. That's why a manager at work avoids me...He sees the sheer dislike on my face......

^^^Why do I feel like I just had to reply to every revelation?! *lmao*
