WORSE. VALENTINE'S. DAY. EVER!

by chinwhat at 7:16 PM
I'm packing up a few laptops that need to be shipped tomorrow for some of site training. I put them in a couple of boxes and decide "Hey, i'll be a nice guy and cut out some handles using my trusty box cutter." I cut out one side, no problem. Turn it around and begin to slice out the second one. Use a bit of extra force and >slash< "Oh fuck!" I pull back my sleeve and see dark blood starting to ooze out. I grab my arm and head on over to the nurse's station.

She was pretty nonchallant about it even though i could see the meat underneath the skin. a quick bandage and i'm good, right? Yeah, for a bit until i notice drops of blood all over my desk. Zoink! Head on back and notice that she's gone for the day. A quick raid of the supplies and i'm able to pseudo bandage myself up. i considered going to a clinic to see if i could get stitches, but it'd take too long (wow, am i starting to think like Shaun and hope for some two tier health care???). i also considered stitching it up myself at home, but i'm not that macho. Shit will kill! Instead, i just gobbed on a bunch of Polysporin, wrapped it up nice and snug...

But the worse thing about this all is i knicked my black Nautica sweater! Sure, its just a sweater, "but it's Nautica!" (C) Cathy. I have no idea how to repair knitted items, but i guess there's a first for everything... and did i mention how dapper i looked rocking my special VDay red tie? laugh


Anyways, Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I could go on and on about it, but yalls know the deal. Instead, i'll offer two songs. One for the haters >looks at Ruby's direction< and one for everyone else.

MC Lyte: Paper Thin - my second favorite old school song. the lyrics are just dirty and the beat is fucking magnificent!

Raheem DeVaughn: Prototype - great cover of Dre3000's song. "Prototype" is one of my favorite 'slang' phrases i say to myself. Mmmmmm, i love thinking about my Prototype...

"Props is a true thug's wife" (C) Nas

by chinwhat at 8:44 PM
Not sure if i like what i hear:
Friday: talking with my two coworkers about the new place. One is a Chinese woman, mid thirties and pregnant. The other is older white male that's pushing 65.

Her: aren't you excited?
Me: do i look excited?
Her: no!
Him: he's too cool to be excited

i know he didn't mean it sarcastically because that's not his personality. but what i want to know is: if a person of his age calls someone of my age 'cool' is that much of a compliment?


I know i like hearing this:
Saturday: at my local TDBank taking care of some business (i also ran into Shaunjay's dad who was punking him. laugh!). my turn at the next teller who happens to be a youngish PYT. i was wearing my shell toes w/black fat laces, grey striped slacks, my blue sweater and the brown jacket. While she's waiting for me to get my paper work and autograph, she drops "you dress really nice" Fucking right i do. Don't worry, i tried to ABC it...


And I really don't like hearing this:
Saturday: at a night spot, after drinks and drinks and drinks, girl says to me "you're a really nice guy" As much as a compliment as it is (which its meant to be) i hate hearing that shit. it's like a guy calling a girl 'cute' which i know they hate.

I >heart< Tamia

by chinwhat at 10:17 PM
So I've been riding that Everscience girl that Shaun loves for not being able to sing (which i still believe) In order to edutain the masses, i offer you a singer who is, in my humblepie opinion, *very* underrated: Tamia

I present Tamia's cover of You Put a Move on My Heart. I dare anyone to tell me she doesn't sing the shit out of this- no, correction. That should be "I dare anyone to tell me she doesn't SANG the shit out of this here!"

I absolutely adore her version of this song. If I get married, this shit's getting played to DEATH! I can't believe this joint's over 10 years old already!

(the CathyApproved version)


(my favorite version)




Boy, I have never wished to be a former NBA All-Star who is in the twilight of his career and has a reputation of being 'too nice' >sigh<
