Tell Me Something Good Tuesday

Inspiration - "Tell Me Something Good" Rufus feat. Chaka Khan "You ain't got no kind of feeling inside/I got something that will sure 'nuff set your stuff on fire/You refuse to put anything before your pride/I got something that will knock all your pride aside/Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)/Tell me that you love me/Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)/Tell me that you like it, yeah"

What I'm Listening To - "Enta Da Stage" Black Moon

Question(s) I Asked Myself Today - "What new phone should I get?" My contract is up and I got a $150 credit with Sprint towards a new phone, but I don't know which one to get.

Instead of going to the strip club Saturday, I swallowed my pride and called up Nia. After being called difficult, I kind of put her off my radar for a minute, but I decided to suck it up and give it a try. The plan was to go get some food and some drinks and talk. (No, Liquor and TV she did not have her name airbrushed on her jeans.) The night reinforced what I already was thinking. Chuck, this is not a Love Connection. Nia basically spent the whole night complaining about everything. She hates her job, hates her apartment, her food wasn't good, the drink was too strong (WTF?) and so on. I was just sitting there not nearly as tipsy as I needed to be to listen to all that complaining. By the time we parted ways, I was drained by her negativity. She was like an Eeyore (Mocha 2006) or Debbie Downer from Saturday Night Live.

Anyway, as I am apt to do, I zoned out and started thinking. Am I like that? Am I one of those chronic complainers? I hope I don't come across like that. I'm quick to tell you all about what I don't like or what gets on my nerves, but do I let you know what makes me happy? Am I too cynical? Don't answer these questions for me. This is something I have to think about for myself.

So with that, blogger family, I need your help. Tell me something good. Anything! Give me some good news. What's good in your world? Maybe your good news will inspire me to break out of this cynical phase that I seem to be in. Oh yeah, and I'm sorry for that joke I played on y'all this weekend (not really, that shit was funny!) Have a great Tuesday!

I GUESS I'll forgive you for that "joke" this weekend. I just knew your blog was gonna take the "love connection turn" halfway into that post!

I'm mad at Nia...what's her number? 404 678 or 770?? LoL

EVERYTHING is good in my world. I'm a mother to a beautiful, healthy 6 month old little girl, have a wonderful family, house, car, gainfully employed. Tell Nia to get at me...I'll teach her how to count her blessings!! :D

Thanks for this T...I needed a reminder this morning!

Tell you something good?

Okay... "Something good."

LMAO (I am so silly sometimes, I swear!!)

Seriously, what's good in my world is that I have decided to embrace infinite possibility by allowing my vibe to entwine and coalesce with that of another. And it's extremely refreshing.

Something else... it's always good when you wake up in the morning and realize all the people you care about woke up too.

It's good to not have to be working outside, 'cause it is hot as HELL in Georgia.

I guess that'll do for now.

Have a good day! Peace.

I gotta take my piss test Friday and I'm 3 weeks CLEAN!!!

YAH!!!!

I know I still need to cleanse my system, but whats GOOD, is I don't even desire weed...marks can smoke in my face and I'm not the least bit tempted...

I think I'm cynical too.... I will tell you what I don't like and then people will say, "Well what do you like?"...*lol*

Am I cynical? I hope not...

All I've had to eat for the past few days is a piece of a slice of bread, four mini Reese's PB cups, and 1/4 cup of oatmeal, but I'm still going strong because it's meaningful.

BTW, I'm 29 years old and I felt hunger pangs for the first time in my life - at 29.

We're all blessed.
