Also as a little treat, here’s a pic of me and Paul.  He’s not the kind who usually takes selfies…he told me there’s a line I’m not allowed to cross, too many selfies and talking to him about the lip gloss I love.  I told him to shut up and smile, I’m adorable when I cross lines.  The other one we took was too blurry (he probably sabotaged it) and in this one you cannot see his beautiful blue eyes but we had a great evening.  It was so good to talk to him after like a month.  If Neal would’ve called back I would’ve had my two favorite guys all to myself in one day.

After five days of blessed, blissful freedom, I return to the plantation manana.  While I was off there were some tragedies in the country and a couple of triumphs too I guess.  I spoke with loved friends and stayed up on Tumblr too late working on artwork while on Twitter talking about soap operas.  I ate so much good food and didnt want to stop.  I even have a clear grasp on where In der Nacht Verschwunden is going and know I have to knuckle down and actually get it there. 

But for most afternoons for the rest of this work week, you guys probably wont see me.  We’re preparing to take delinquent tenants to court so my afternoons will be quite busy.  But I love you all and I had such a blast these past five days being able to hang out with you whenever I felt like it.

Off for cocktails and bullshit with Paul.  Hair relaxed, tees washed, and I’m ready to go.

I called Neal again this afternoon, he was on the phone with someone else.  One thing I did notice before he said I love you, bye was he said he knew it was my last day off.  The only way he would know that was if he read my Facebook cuz that’s where I posted it.  I dont know why that made me squee, cuz I’m silly probably.

So I went into the bathroom to relax my hair and come back and there’s a missed call and its Neal and I’m screaming like my lotto numbers just came out on the day I decided not to play.  And I check my voice mail and he says he was in the car about to go run errands and he pulled over to call me because he didnt know when he would have the chance again until late this evening but I was busy and he would try again later.  Ugh, ugh, ugh, blergh.  But I am so keeping that voicemail forever and ever.

Shouts out to my inbetweeners

shop-lioness:

You’re a black girl. You like indie music, you dress differently than your peers but you aren’t quite “Afro punk” enough.

You watch anime, read graphic novels but you aren’t quite “nerdy” enough.

You read Nylon mag, paper mag, etc and like what you see, but hate that you never see a brown face.

Your taste is eclectic, your style is eclectic, and you can’t be put in a category. 

If you’ve ever wondered where you belong or what you are, I have the answer.

You’re a LIONESS.

When Neal tells me that he loves me, it glides off his tongue so effortlessly and without prompting that I just know its true.  I cant help but hear it in my head and be all giddy for days afterward.

I’m not made of money, or anything close, but I just gave a quarterly donation to the ALS Association because a world without ALS, or with a better treatment for those who suffer from it, will be a better world indeed.

If you give tonight, or in the near future, also think about The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (my favorite charity) and of course to give to the family of Michael Brown or to feed the hungry or clean the streets of Ferguson, Missouri after 9 days of clashes between citizens and the military (oops, I mean police).  Check Twitter and Tumblr to make sure the charities you donate to are reputable and the money is used to help the people truly in need.

I just followed like 4 new alt black girl blogs and I am so damn jealous of these sistahs doing it how they want to.  I was so discouraged and marginalized as a teen for not being “black” enough and I didnt quite have the right support system of friends and family to encourage me to be me.  So I hid a lot of it (didnt dye my hair, only went through a short skater phase, etc) and in college I did a little more but after so long just didnt have the courage to let my “freak flag fly”. 

Now in my 30s I want to be me, and I get to be more than ever, but in the “corporate” world pink or purple hair and multiple tattoos and piercings is frowned upon.  I do as much as I can but I wish I could turn back time and be me so much sooner.  While I am so jealous of seeing these girls being and loving themselves, it also gives me hope that the next generation and generations to come of black girls will embrace whatever gives them light and turns them on and do it beautifully and unabashedly.

I hate to be presumptuous, and I am working on #1200 as we speak but it came in the mail today and I just had to try it on.  I love it so much : )
