SHAKIN' LIKE A EPILEPTIC!!!


I was nervous as hell as I sat at the computer. My hand wasn't metaphorically shaking like a leaf, it was physically "SHAKING LIKE AN EPILEPTIC"! Since I am epileptic, I can say that. But seriously, as I was taking my A+ exam, I didn't know if I was coming or going. Yeah, I knew a majority of the answers, still and all...my hand fumbling with that mouse as i clicked in my answers. Then as it said exit, I clicked and everything disapeered, I hopped up fled to door distraught about what I had just done, I wasn't quite sure if I barely passed or slipped thru the cracks. I called the attendant, (for lack of better words) to rush to my aid. He must have knew something that I didn't because he sort of smirked, hit a key on the keyboard and said relax, its just a survey you need to take next. He didn't seem enthused so I took it as I was on the way home a failure. I sped thru the survey, not answering all of the questions, still too nervous...then I finally reached my destination..."CONGRATULATIONS LANNIE ROSS"! It felt soooo good to finally get that monkey off my back. I wasn't filled with glee but I was more than willing to exhale. So I did, wooooooooooooo!

I went home checked my emails and saw a ticket alert from ticketmaster. It said Ms. Badu's tickets were on sale. I verified it and it was true. I placed a order as quickly as I could. The best seats left were in the M row, right in the middle. For $175 I would have paid for one ticket in row G, now I am four rows back for face value. I am so happy I can see that gurl do her thang, I am not a big Roots fan, but I am sure they will be alright anyway. I also got a aquarium off of freecycle, a organization dedicated to helping recycle whatever you don't need. I have been trying to locate pieces to put together a nice aquarium for a anole I saw at Petco. Now all I need to do is finish paying off my bills, hmmm...funny how that works.

Lannie,

Thank you for your sweet words regarding my blog. It is my heart, it is me. I have to tell you that Blogger sent me an email about your new blog and I thought it sounded so different than anything else I've heard of so I took a peek. I liked it. It felt like a world away from my own but I still liked it. I was more afraid that you would find me silly. Such a straight laced white girl. I'll be lurking on your site to see what is next in store for you.

Good Luck!

P.S. I'm surprised that you didn't mention anything about my music selections. . .

Amazing blog. Your words and images are intense, real and poetic. Congrats on scoring the Erykah Badu tickets! I saw "New Amerykah" in a store window last night and plan to check it out online. Would love to see her live. Enjoy!
