Spoke to me.


Here is yet another song with lyrics that speak to me. Could I tell you why? nay on that one. But the words have struck a chord in my ole nation. definitely worth sharing. It is titled Little Lion Man.

weep for yourself, my man,
you'll never be what is in your heart
weep little lion man,
you're not as brave as you were at the start
rate yourself and rape yourself,
take all the courage you have left
wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
i really fucked it up this time
didn't I, my dear?

tremble for yourself, my man,
you know that you have seen this all before
tremble little lion man,
you'll never settle any of your score
your grace is wasted in your face,
your boldness stands alone among the wreck
learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
i really fucked it up this time
didn't I, my dear?

Summer is on my mind

There is something about this Saturday morning that has me longing for summer. Sunshine, bathing suits, patio afternoons, weekends up north, insert sigh...summer is on my mind.

1 month 'til XMAS 09--whaaaaa?

Seriously is it already Nov. 25? Peeps I am shocked into awe. I mean wasn't I just planting beautious flowers on my rooftop deck and enjoying pool time? Now its dark by 5pm with snow around the corner and Christmas one month away. I say it often and I assure you I will not stop saying how is it that life moves at such a fast pace. How do the days fly by at such a ferocious speed! Someone said the older you get, the faster time goes...well I must be getting tres old.
I am not going to lie, I miss the old no no november. A month to let your body rejig, your liver relax and your mind to become clear--just in time for the tricky holiday season. By tricky I mean late days out celebrating the season, long days at work with the year coming to an end and trying to keep normalcy in ones daily life...It is tough, let me tell ya. But the way I see it come Jan 1, my focus will be work and training for Boston, with not a whole whack of time for social engagement so I am letting it slide for now. I love the build and the socialness the next month offers. Seeing old friends, laughing the night away cozied up to a warm fire while enjoying a pleasant glass of veines or if you wanna take it to the next level a glorious glass of nog. OR busting out in snowstorms in heels when cabbies even refuse to hit the roads to your local or your bff's local. At the time, very irritating but from hindsight, one of your fondest xmas season celebrating memories. Have one that makes me giggle out loud.
Have I started my xmas shopping? Nope not yet. Do I plan on starting before the 20th, probably not. But that is how I roll.
Am I excited for xmas 09? More so then years past. The laughs, the loves and the fun with fam and friendsies are what make it for me. Tis the season afterall and I have a feeling this year will be full of the aboves!

All is good and even...and well full of fun!

Well hello there friends! how does this find all of you? Happy, healthy, hearts smiling I hope. Sorry I have been soooo mia. Time is flying--as per usual. I have had a tremendously full fall filled with so many bests and wonderous moments. I can hardly believe we are into the second week of November already. My mother called me on Friday evening to discuss Christmas plans?!! I was caught off guard thinking wasn't it only just T-gives!? Minutes are like seconds and hours like days. Time is being such a little sneaky pants. The last few weeks have been a ball full of fun! Things in my life are moving fast...but I am having the best time. I smile to myself on the regular and remind myself of the wonderments in my life constantly.

Banan and the Dale bird tied the knot and we all tied one on to celebrate. I met tons of new friends while laughing and loving the weekend away. It was wonderous but even more wonderous the love between these two newlyweds. I was honored to stand up for them.

I ran a 10K fun run and was actually the first female finisher...It was amazing! I was as shocked as you are now! As I approached the finish line I realized I had not seen any women for quite somewhile. They pulled out the ribbon as sprinted the line and took some funny pics. My prize was not only the new nikeplus sportband but a few months of bragging rights at least. I was on cloud nine for at least a week. Plus my excitement and love of running re-ignited.

I have met new friends and shared some great moments with some old ones. Life is exciting and I just cannot wait for what is around my next corner...

And well that is where I am at. All is good and even... and well full of fun! On that note I am off to the land of sleep.

Promise to write again soon...
