A Day in the Life

Yesterday I have a fun day. It all started with court. Me and the BM had another court date about the child support stuff, I'm not going to go into all the details because I don't want to take a chance on it coming back on me but here are a few highlights

- Dudes rocking bubble vests and nike boots to court
- The courtroom being freezing cold
- Everyone in family court looks depressed
- Security guard at gate telling me that nobody wants to be here
- Dude rocking slacks and timbos
- BM almost getting arrested for interrupting the judge 2x
- Sheriff having to threaten the BM
- BM getting to cross examine me under oath
- My lawyer objecting half of her questions
- BM asking the most random and unimportant questions like how much I got paid for a website I designed in 2005... 2005!!!
- After court the Bailiff pulled me aside and asked how I got hooked up with that nut

And all that was before noon lol

so that evening I was supposed to meet up with my buddy for drinks. I had not seen her in a long while (she had a crazy and obsessed boyfriend, ya'll know how that goes) So were chillin, laughing, drinking and catching up. I notice this lady walks past, she was kinda cute so I noticed when she walked past a 2nd time. Then she stops at the table and asks "Excuse me, do you have a blog?" After I say yes, we laugh and exchange high fives the we all go back to what we were doing. My buddy says how awkward that would have been if she didn't know about the blog and I agree. From here on out anybody new I meet I'm telling about this lil place. If ya'll bammas going to be calling me out in public I need to be ready lol.

So anyway were chillin and the same lady comes back with some dude, my first thought was "wow hes tall" Then he introduces himself as Shawn Smith... This Shawn Smith He seemed like a cool dude, looked nothing like I would have imagined. I'm pretty sure I've never seen a pic of him. Like I said he's tall. Too tall to be my friend, He'd make me look even shorter lmao. It was a fun moment. Just another day in my life.

Winter Relationships Revisited

I was telling someone how I can't remember the last time I bought a christmas gift for a girl besides my daughter. It's not that I'm cheap I just never seem to have anyone over the holidays. Then I remembered a post I did back in jan 08. It was pretty short so I'll just repost it here

As the holiday season draws to a close I'm reminded of something my uncle Curtis told me years ago. Never get a new girl in the winter. I mean Never, just too much going on for a new relationship to survive. think about it, you have Thanksgiving, where she just might meet the family. Once she meets the family they will ask about her forever, you don't need that for some girl who might not even last a month. Then you have to get her something for Christmas, which is a disaster because something too nice and your committed to buying nice things forever, something too cheap and she thinks you really don't care and she is just another jumpoff. Plus she may see the family again so they will really ask about her all the time. It's a no win. Then you have to take her out for new years, that's more money on a girl you may or may not think will last till the spring. THEN you have Valentines Day!!! which is a all girl day, dudes get squat for V-day. So you have to do something romantic for that. So in 1 season you have a years worth of relationship stuff, that's just not a good thing. Better to wait till the spring and give it all spring, summer and fall to get to know her before having to go thru all that. My uncle is a wise man, I can only hope to teach the youth as well as he taught me.

While I posted it because I though it was funny and my uncle is a fool for telling this. I think I subconsciously live it... My more recent relationships have followed that same pattern. Granted I did have a girl around valentines day this year but she just barely made it in time for that. I more summer flings then winter ones.

Anyway yeah I still got relationships on the brain... lol I promise to blog about something funny soon.
