It really is your lucky day

You guys get a twofer!

My birthday this year was a lot of fun. It fell on a monday and monday birthdays are never that exciting. So the weekend before I went to go visit my friend rusty in OKC. I have been up there a couple of times and I like it okay...the city that is. I always enjoy hanging out with rusty and his roommate.

So to celebrate in dallas we waited until the weekend after and Erin, Nathan, Jess and I all went to cyclones for dinner. Erin bought me this HUGE margarita that will get you drunk off two sips. You think I am kidding or even being dramatic, but I am not. Promise. After dinner we went to Jrs for a few drinks and we got a killer deal on the drinks because of said bartendar in previous post =). Nathan jetted and then Erin, Jess and I proceeded to S4. are totalling going with us when you are in town. It was SO MUCH FUN. But I always have fun with Erin and Jess!

Starting to meet some new friends around town. I have a lot of aquaintances in the gay world, but not many people I would truly call friends. So I had coffee with a guy named keven last night. We talked for two hours straight. So much fun.

You are trying to be kidding me!

I know I suck at this. By 'this'..I mean the blog thing. I am just not good at it like Jamie or Erin or how Jess used to be. But you get my point...right?

so a little update. I have been laid off and I am currently unemployed. It sucks and this has never happened to me before so it really sucks. I am getting sort of paranoid. Maybe nervous is a better word to use. I'm just saying.

please forgive my randomness.. I am sort of having a brain dump here to catch you guys up on my life the past couple of months.

I have been on several dates. One with a bartender, several with the history teacher, one with the retail store owner and one tbd with mr. america (or that is what erin and I dubbed him anyway). It is a lot more fun to have names for them... easier for my friends to keep track. =)

so there you have it... oh..and brooke introduced me to the guy she is sort of kind of talking to at samuel's basketball game thursday night. that was weird.

sooo I am updating!

YIKES. people are getting fiesty about me updating. and by people.. I mean erin. = )

My week has been crazy. I am hosting one of my friends from way back because she had to evacuate her home due to Ike. We are having a lot of fun and I am glad she is here. She needs to move up to become my roommie! I don't think it will happen...but who knows. One can hope.

I started my part time job yesterday. And don't ask me why I have a part time job. It was the grand opening so hopefully every night I work won't be as crazy. I don't think I can handle much more of that after working full time all day. The funny that I work with a lot of young people making 8 bucks an hour. They probably don't know a) how old I actually am and b) that I actually have a real job. Just saying...

So this weekend is packed full of events!

Friday - watching samuel.
Saturday - Entertaining samuel...if michael and brandy are still in their hotel I will probably try to take him swimming. We will see.
Saturday Night - Going out with Erin and we will become rockstars! Dinner (somewhere not so expensive because I had to give my right leg in order to go to the dentist on monday)...a house party...and then dancing. A cd release party was mentioned, but I am not sure we will have time to fit it into our agenda. This is a busy night folks! I am not playing here...
Sunday- Brunch at another house party and then the parade. Sunday night I will go home to recoop and finish watching the Tudors.

So here is the deal...

I have added by-invitation-only so I would feel more comfortable writing about things...

I have already invited some of you. By some...I mean the people who I 'think' read my blog.

I am going to keep it open throughout the weekend...if you read this blog and would like to continue reading please send your email to so I can add you to the list.

Because come Monday! Invitation only to my personal world of blogging. = )

By invitation only

so... I was talking to my friend Erin today over lunch about my blog.

well...we were actually just talking and I was saying something funny and she said, "you see danael...this is exactly the stuff you need to be blogging."

So...I am going to investigate 'invitation only' for my blogging visitors. If you would like to read no big deal...just shoot me an email and I will add you to the list (if I want you to read it of course).

more to come.

Apparently I am not very good at this. By 'this' I mean blogging. I have several reasons.

1) I forget
2) I am afraid of who is reading
3) well...the first two are reason enough I guess.

I think I have solved reason #1. Goal setting... Jamie and I decided to post no later than EOD today. So here I am....a couple of hours into work...posting. I know I will have to converse with her on another date for the next blog entry. = )

Reason #2...I just need to get over this. I will...eventually. Everything gets better with time. folks...TODAY. I am talking about my weekend. So sit down..relax...and dont get to annoyed by my ramblings.


-I picked samuel up from school.
-We hung out at the house.
-Nothing to exciting.


-Brought samuel to the Museum of Nature and Science
-Ate at McDonald's
-Watched Fly Me to the Moon complete with 3D glasses and all
-Took a nap
-Rec'd a phone call regarding his date that evening and how it was canceled. = (
-Hung out with Ryan that evening...and watched Elizabeth: The Golden Years


-Went to church with Mark and Brian
-Saw Zanna Don't
-Met Terry for a Drink was a pretty busy weekend.

More to come...promise. Sorry for the lack of details.

the real reason....

As most of you have wanted me to blog for awhile. Blogging has always been hard for me because I feel like I have to hunt for things to blog about because I was always afraid to blog about every day life... I never could do that before. the true every day life.

so what I am really trying to decide is when to start going in that direction. Should I start now? should I start when my old life is over and my new life begins.

That is where I am... just so you know. I have so much to tell you guys (those of you who read this anyway).

Busy. Another word for Asshole

So. I have added the word 'busy' to my dislike list. I hate the word and I am going to do my best to refrain from using it.

But seriously...don't get me wrong. I do understand that we can be busy from time to time. What I am referring to is when people use this as an excuse on why they can't call you back, or why they can't hang out, or why they didn't email you back.

"I've been busy". Well..we are all busy.

This is what I request from all of you. That if we are talking and I can't think of a better excuse to why I didn't call/text/email/hangout that you call me out on it.

I will leave you with options that Jess and I were discussing.

- Unfortunately I wasn't able to manage my time accurately to call/email/text you back.
- I didn't feel like calling you back until now.
- I was really just avoiding your phone call/email/text.

because I need to...

I am being harrassed by a certain someone (cough, cough...coughjamie)to write in my blog more often...

so here is my commitment. To do this atleast every other day. That is my goal anyway...I hope I will succeed.

It isn't like I don't have anything to talk about, because I do. Plenty. PLENTY. plenty. you get my point...right?

so...with that being said...I had a good weekend. Met some great people. More on that later...

To be Two again...

Brooke made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies yesterday after dinner. This is how the conversation went.

(Brooke walks over to the table and gives Samuel a cookie)

Samuel: mmmm.....Are these berries? (pointing to the choc. chips)
Brooke: No Samuel, they are choc. chips.
Samuel: (looking a little grossed out)
Brooke: (Anxiously awaiting Samuel to take a bite)
Samuel: mmmm....I think they are poo poo

(Samuel then eats the entire cookie minus the poo poo chips)

Another Trip

Made a trip to hell last night. Here is the conversation I overheard while standing in the checkout line:
Random wife: Did you get the Gold Bond?
Random Husband: No, I never went to the pharmacy section
Random wife: Did you want me to grab some?
Random Husband: No, I haven't been itching...
Random wife: That is good
Random Husband: But now that I have mentioned it...I am starting to itch.
Reason # 124 of why we hate Wal-mart.
