Go On With Your Bad Self.....


*So I deleted the first half of this post*

Work has been crazy......Thank God I love my job. Appraisals in January left me with mixed feelings. I hit below my expectations, leaving me no other option but to aim for 100% and nothing less. So Far, So Good.

A friend said to me, there's no point being good at what you do, because everybody can be good therefore you have to be outstanding in order to make a difference. It hit home.

Her example......B (All you Beyonce haters, feel free to keep on hating) truth be told, that girl works extra hard and deserves everything she's got.

In the mean time.

I've taken video games up. It's me and them.....personal vendetta. I wonder why people would think their kids as dumb or lazy if they played video games.......Men! the thought process involved in gaming is strictly for sharp human minds, and I'm not talking Wii here, No offence. Of course you all know who is subconsciously responsible for this.

I was brought up on the easy stuff, Mario, Duck Hunt, Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic just ran and jumped as far as i was concerned. But with games like God of War and Uncharted......puzzle minded, you are bound to feel lost and confused, and all the buttons on the control pad don't help either. Your brain definitely has to be active. I'm actually having fun playing them..........But i shall not be caught dead with any first person shooters.

Saw a couple of things that reminded me of what we thought was "cool" back in the days.

Remember wearing white socks in your dress shoes? What the Hell was that?

As if that wasn't bad....all the ridiculous things we did as kids, from Licking your plate (hey, don't lie! you did it), to cooking with sand, smoking paper,flogging trees like they were your pupils (i guess we were only imitating our teachers).......not to mention the local games.....10 10, suwe/swell, koso...lol, shooting paper from rubber band.....and the likes of them.

Then came the era when we were concerned about fashion and music.....spice trainers for chics, jelly sandals, skousers, dungarees, clogs then the guys cared about biggie, tupac, bone thugs and lumberjack shirts...lol

Good times....I feel my post losing it's way.....*Yawning*

I'm Off to bed!.....and I promise to put up the deleted half later.

But first I just have to Crack You UP!


*Sexy Daddy*......hehehehhehe


*What's up dawg!*

PLEASE IT IS NOT MY INTENTION FOR YOU TO GET FIRED FOR LAUGHING OUT LOUD.....
