As we bring this year to a close, I'd like to reflect on the past year and the many wonderful things that have happened. This has been the longest non-leap year of my life...mostly because this time last year, I was on a booze cruise in Boston Harbor with an older lady from work, J-Dub watching fireworks go off over the skyline. It was great...and happened two hours earlier due to the time difference...but I probably spent that extra time this year waiting in the airport on my trips to Vegas twice (pre blog days), St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, Barcelona, Rupit, France, Florence & Rome, Naples & Sicily, back to Barcelona, and Dallas.
Tonight though, I'm here at work...but Bubbles & Foxy made it all worth while today...and I'm going to explain why. Bubbles, just by being herself...and partly because she partied a little hearty last night, has decided not to get trashed tonight...so we're having a Movie Night tomorrow. She also gave me a Tarot Card reading with her new set that Brooklyn gave her for Christmas. It goes a little something like this...in layman's terms...
Past - Eight of Swords - You seem to be restricted by your past. Decisions & situations make you feel restricted from future progression. Don't sweat the small stuff, see the big picture. Don't overanalyze.
Present - Four of Swords - Now is the time to look inward for self-reflection and self-examination (possibly for ticks). This will help you to heal and feel renewed for the coming events.
Future - Prince of Hearts - (That's right. The Prince of Hearts. You can guess how this one goes.) You are a romantic in every sense of the word. You are in love for Love itself. Many see you as a Casanova sweeping ladies off their feet and overpowering them with your charms. You are infatuated with "Comings & Goings of all kinds" (the first one, absolutely). Be in contact with feelings of young love. You are light and charming and a welcomed visitor. However, you may may be seen as a Don Juan of sort, where you would kiss and tell. (How did they know? On the real though, if you don't want me to mention stuff on the blog, I can be very discreet. Wink wink) So yeah, awesome reading, right? These cards are ten times better than that trick, Sylvia Browne.
Foxy, by saying at the workplace, "$teve, are you on break? I need some Meat." Obviously, my first thought (and therefore immediately response) was "Wow, are you in luck!!!" Also, all the ladies within earshot heard this announcement as well...and started with their wondrous comments like "Yup, $teve definitely the guy to talk to about that" or "Geez guys, wait until your shift is over" or my personal favorite, "Oooh, me next!!!" Allow me to give some background. There was a sandwich potluck tonight...and Foxy was supposed to bring the meat...but forgot (she may have a memory problem...but said she was having a bad day...which could mean anything). So, she saw me in passing...and, in her own quirky way, asked me if I could get some meat for her. She just has a problem with not thinking before she says stuff...like me.
Anyway, without further ado, I present to you...the awards show that you've all been waiting for...
The 2007 Stevies
Based on something sent to my MySpace account a few weeks ago that I thought I'd hold onto until it's officially 2008...so here it goes. By the way, just because you're not mentioned in the Stevies doesn't mean that I don't care about you. It's simply some stupid stuff that I threw together one night when I should've been out partying...but instead am working...for no apparent reason other than I'm a nice guy. Without further ado, this year's winners are...
DRINKING BUDDY OF THE YEAR: Bubbles - Always there when I need a drink, makes work worth going, and always willing to watch stupid movies with me...while drinking. If she were there to hold my hair back the next morning, we'd practically be a couple.
TV SHOW FOR 2007: Drawn Together - The reason I got cable.
WHO DID YOU SPEND VALENTINES WITH: Rosie...and a bunch of chicks at work. I had a three-pound box of chocolates that I shared with my ladies. I'm such a PIMP...minus the sex...emphasis on the large hands though. That's why it's called National Single Awareness Day to me...but more on that when it rolls around here in six weeks, okay?
NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS:
- Travel more...or at least as much
- Find a good girl who likes me too
- Have more sex...preferably with a woman nearby
- Pursue another part-time job...maybe as a late night radio DJ
- Play more basketball. I miss our times together.
- Give more to charity & donate time, blood, plasma, sperm, hair, feces, whatever they'll take
- Dance more...preferably with a woman nearby
- Swear less (now that my nieces & nephews are getting spongier)
- Should I swear off Mountain Dew or something? Like Lent?
- Nah, maybe just eat healthier...or cook more
- Remember JJ
- Smack more asses (a.k.a. More forward with the opposite sex)
- Drive my Baby more
- Most importantly, make sure everybody out there knows how much I love & care for them
Have fun tonight...and a great 2008 everybody!!! Drive safely & drink responsibly!!! See ya next year!!! (Lame, I know...)
