Random ponderings #2.

Oh sleep. I just can't seem to do you right now. The ol' noggin is too full of dreams to take part in you.  I wish I could. I tried for an hour. You were so tempting too with your awesome duvet, down comforter, down pillows, king size/cherry wood/sleigh bed. I really do love you. What makes it even better is that there is a cute little baby somewhere underneath all of those covers keeping my spot warm while I blog and as soon as I am ready for you, I will move her aside and gently take the warm spot without her even knowing. Is that wrong. I think not. Maybe it is but I will do it anyways.  

I have been sick with a cold this week which has be NO fun. Bailey has done a great job of taking care of me though. The place is a wreck but who cares. She took care of her momma. I love her. I have one more busy weekend of work and then it is off to Kansas City MISSOURI for all you goof balls who don't know. Now you KNOW! I am really pumped about that trip. I am taking a road trip to STL with my bro's, going to a wedding, have 2 photoshoots and lots of folks to see in just one week. I am glad this trip is going to be a busy one. I feel like most of the time I am there I gain 5lbs and watch a lot of tv. This trip will be different. 

I am feeling like this is going to be another Random blog. It is.

I have been watching the futbol matches like they are going out of style. I have a HUGE respect for the game and just love how the world can come together for a few weeks. I love that I can go up to any decent male and ask if they watched the game and they say yes. And I actually know what they are talking about because I too watched the game. And yes, I did say decent male. It is great for my job and it feels good to be a bit knowledgeableI have never typed the word knowledgeable but it looks different than what i pictured and there are much more letter than i expected about the most popular sport in the world. Its about time bre. It is just because being a Thomas you kinda do wrestling, football, track or baseball or all the above. I didn't really know soccer was a sport. I like to call it futbol. I sound more cultured that way and then I always get the respond, "where are you from"  and then I get to reply with "Missouri" and then I get that confused look. It is SO worth that look. Then I get, "No. what nationality are you". Then I reply with, "my dad is black and my mother is white". Then i get that look again. Then I smile, knowing that those exact things were going to happen. 

I have a really sweet friend G. who brought me food today. And it was good food. Thank you G. Thanks for hanging out a bit. 

A guy told me tonite that he doesn't like girls who have short hair. You know what.......dude....I have been trying to think of a come back that wasn't TOO rude but just mean enough to get, I am still thinkin. Wait...Not a fan of dudes with bum socks. There. I hope I got you.

I really don't know how women can go around with chipped fingernails and toes. I just really don't get it. It looks so bad and only takes minutes to correct and not a lot of money. I want to walk around DC one day with a bucket of cotton balls and a Camelbak of polish remover and do some healing. 

Yes ladies, if you put polish on your nails and you have a job or do anything, you will probably have to touch up your nails on a weekly basis. Maybe even a few times a week. is so worth it. Its like this...if you can't tip, don't go out to eat. If you can't keep your nail polish on, then don't put it on. Was that harsh? Did i get my point across?

I want some Gates BBQ. Beef on bun. And some Jackstacks. I love how people out here on the east coast talk about BBQ, like they know. And they will argue that Carolina has the best and Memphis. blah blah. KC. All day. 

I am thinking a lot about Norge. I will go to that country one day. Maybe next year? As a gift to myself after I am officially single again. Yeah. Sounds like a great idea to me. Oh, Norge is Norway. The Kingdom of Norway. It just sounds cool. Where do you live? the US. Where do you live? The Kingdom of Norway. Okay. Much cooler. ps. the shot below is Norge. 

I am really trying to embrace summer. It isn't AS terrible as I predicted. I have embraced the shorts and swimming suit. Still would rather wear clothes but I am dealing with it. I still hate that hot feeling but it is fun to take Bailey to the pool and drink a really cold drink and eat more ice cream and crank some Dave in the car. 

Who has actually made it this far in the late nite ponderings of me? I wonder about who reads this blog. It always makes me laugh and/or smile when I find out someone really does read it. I really don't know if you read this unless you clicked on the FOLLOW button and even then I am not sure. So click the FOLLOW button if you haven't so I know who knows all these random details of my life. 

I really hate when people curse all the time. Like that guy who drops the F bomb after every other word. He could get to the point much faster if he left those out. It just sounds stupid after a while. Like he is stuttering. There are only 2 F bombs that I agree with in song. #1 is by far Damien Rice in the song "Rootless Tree". I have never heard that word sound so beautiful. And #2 is Lil Wayne in his lovely yet direct song titled, "F today". That song came in handy a few times this year. Just so honest. So pure. 

I think that is all I have for tonite. I am still not sleepy, I still feel sick and my eyes are still itchy and burning. I might go eat some sort of carb and have some water. Goodnite. I hope you are well.
