Somebody once told me, the world is gonna rule me

I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

So this is what I am wearing for Caribana this year. Mind you, this is only the second year that I am playing mas. I am playing with my sister and my cousin. They are both seasoned revellers, my cousin more so than meli, nonetheless, the have years and years of more experience than I do. Meli and I went to check out the mas camp for Carnival Nationz about a week after they first launched and the only section we all agreed was nice and wanted to play in was Secret Garden. When we got there we were advised that that section was promptly sold out at the actual launch. Ok, we then had to decide how we were going to do this.
We were scoping out band launches since the end of April looking for costumes that we liked and and dj's that were hot and most importantly, NO LIVE BANDS!!! haha, got you Truds, don't worry. So there was only one big band left to launch, when we made the decision to go with Nationz, and since Meli has something against Saldenah I was vetoed and here we are at the mas camp looking for costumes. After about 2 hours (no lie) using a fine tooth comb to sive out 3 costumes Meli and Truds decided on Scabiosa (which is a flower, google it) and I liked Poison Ivy. I thought Scabiosa was too much like our costumes last year. Once I get pics of both, I will put up and you can see.
Anyways, maybe because I was pmsing or my cousin on the phone was encouraging me that "we don't have to play in the same sections, we'll meet once the sections cross the stage", but whatever it is, I'm playing by myself!!!! I bought a Poison Ivy and the two people I play with are not playing with me!!!
I know that with my luck, we will be sepearated probably by all the other sections and I'm not going to know anyone. I have enough issues alone, crossing the stage with people I know!!! Plus, there section is already 90% sold out while mine is pushing "good numbers"'s layman terms for not really sell that great.......ggreeeaaatttttt
I will keep you updated on how it goes after Caribana.

I forgot to say outloud, how beautiful you really are to me......

I can't be without, you're my perfect little punching bag

Dear Mr. Right,

I know you are out there looking for me, as I am for you. One day, we will meet (again), because I am sure I met you three years ago, when I went clubbing with my friends. You were my dream guy. No really, everything I thought you would be (down to your name and age). It was my self-sabotage that once again deflected you. I know that I will meet you again and we will live happilly ever after forever and ever and ever because you will have forgiven me for acting a fool 3 years ago. I am (somewhat) waiting patiently. Standing at 6ft, you will weight between 150-175 and have curly hair. You do not gel your hair or put any of that crap in it. I know you will have a good job and your own car and goals in lilfe. I know you will be funny, and smart and enjoy good food because you can cook. You will also be tolerate of my mood swings and my need to watch anything reality and my constant hunger.
I don't even need to put in how you need to feel about my daughter because that is a given.
Can't wait to meet you (again)!!

Sincerely Yours,

jas's house

"Luckily the phone rang. We both answered it. It was Rosie. She and Sven were calling from a phone box. 'We just rang to say we've made up this great new dance; it's called The Phone Box'.
She played a radio down the phone and in the background I could hear a lot of grunting and shuffling and Sven going 'oh jah, oh jah, hit it lads!!!!' or something in Swedish or whatever it is he speaks. Then there was a bit of what sounded like tap dancing. Rosie came back on the phon all breathless. 'Brilliant, eh? See you in the next world.......don't be late!!!!!' And she slammed the phone down."

Just call me whenever you're lonely

I'll be your friend, I can be your homie

I haven't really had anything to write about. I lie, I have stuff to write about, but when I start writing, I forget what I was going to write about.
Anyways, babe's good. She has a skip-a-thon tomorrow so she's superstoked about that. She's raise dover $300!! Go baby girl!!
Oh, we got the invitation to this cousins sister's wedding. It's on September 19th. I don't have plans that day yet, but I intend to do something, so I will be busy and can't go. So, HOLLA if you want to do something, hahahaha. I'm available. But my daddy says he needs a dd (because he will be drinking, as it's the only way he can be around my mothers family, lol), so I can't make any plans.
Oh, and on the same note, I was unofficially invited to her bacholorette. They're going to Niagara for wine tasting. FOR THE BACHOLORETTE PARTY!!!! I don't drink. I have a baby that I like to go home to (and I was informed that it's overnight). ANNDDDDD it's on the same weekend as my child's birthday. Honestly, she's getting married in September, why the hell is her bacholorette 2 months before?!?!?! Meli's was a month early, only because she was fasting for a month, but this chick is getting married in a church (i.e catholic or christian or some hey-seuss abiding religion), no fasting required. Plus, it's the day of kiddies carnival, so I don't think I can go, but I want to see the invitation still. So, I didn't mention any of those "issues" yet, i'm going w/ the flow. I'm a maco yes.

Do you think I am wrong??

I refuse to believe

You do not think of me, like I do you
So my cousin has a boyfriend. This bothers me two ways (well more than two ways, but I'll give you the two foremost reasons). 1. He's a customs officer. Now, I really, really have a thing for any guy in a uniform. My gay ex-boss and I agreed (mind you, this was probably the only time we agreed) that if a guy is a "6" in real life, he automatically jumps to at least an "8" in a uniform. Also, I work in logisitcs, so I deal with customs alot. In this new position that I am in, I actually make runs to customs. There was this one customs officer that I was actually, I guess you could almost call it, stalking. I knew he wroked on Tuesday's and Wednesday's after 1 pm. I didn't know his name, and they rotate positions, so he's now been moved. He's bound to come back to this post again. Anyways, I straying from the point. It's not even that he's probably a hottie (I saw him on her profile pic on fb, (and only profile pic, b/c she's not even on my friends list. I told you, stalker tendencies.) And he's not that good looking, maybe in his uniform he could be a 5, 5.5 max. Definately not my type. But it's the fact, that he was what i'm supposed to be. I don't want to get into it, b/c I make myself cry, but it's totally not fair (again, it is fair and it's all my fault anyways, i'm just dodging responsibility). 2. She's my cousin, but we can't pick and choose our family. She's ugly. Mind you some people might think she's pretty, but I think she has a big nose. Her hair reminds me of a portuguese water dog (think Gavin Rossdale's dog, Winston) and she talks with a funny accent (SHUT UP!!!!). She's boring and unintelligent and short.

I'm not mean or angry......i'm jealous.
