Annnnd I’m back… How is everyone this Monday? How was your weekend? This week’s topic isn’t really about anything special. It’s about something BIG, it’s about YOU! I would like to know how your Monday has been, and how your weekend was. I am going to share my day with you guys, and I’m hoping you will do the same. So, if you’re taking time out of your day to read this, by all means, please tell me about your day. No if’s, and’s, or but’s; I want to hear about your day, weekend or both. If you want to vent, whether it’s about your lover, friends, children, boss, or just something silly, shoot! This week’s topic isn’t as long as last weeks, but it’s important because it’s about our days. So comment below or I’ll come find you…I kid, I kid, but really I would love to hear about your day.

Well, here’s my day…


Woke up from a strange dream; I think it was about Toy Story. I got ready for work and rode the train with my friend, Ms. Shippe. I realized I was early for work so I walked Ms. Shippe to her job. I had a nice morning walk to work, listened to Kanye West’s “Dark Fantasy,” “Can we get much higher? Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.” Good song, check it out, I’ve digressed. Got a pretzel and saw my neighbor we work in the same building. Talked to a co-worker, and then went to my desk to start writing. Of course, everyone wanted to say “good morning.” I wanted to ask them, “Do you see my face? Does it look like I want to talk?” If they only knew I am the most homicidal in the morning. I almost called out like

six times; I hate starting work on Monday mornings. Oh yeah, my co-worker, Ms. Moore gave me some smarties, “yippee!” I Listened to some music, Wu-Tang Clan – “It’s Yourz,” I started to feel a little better. I think I was waking up from my zombie mood. Most of the morning consisted of working and listening to music. I listened to Avalanche’s mix tape, “When I Met You,” awesome mix tape. Went on break at eleven, got to see Ms. Richardson. YAY! I missed Ms. Richardson! Spoke to Mr. Lambert about music, found out Mos Def is signed with G.O.O.D. Music, awesome! Took a half an hour break, when my break should’ve been fifteen minutes. Now back to work marching onto noon. Oh, I think I might have made someone’s morning. Happy to help out!


Mr. Lambert and I chatted about new music via e-mail for a while. Talked about X-Men and the generations of characters with Ms. Moore. I have a big plan for X-Men, the comic book, I’ve digressed again. The supervisor for my department comes strolling in with his prickly smirk. Have I mentioned that I want to snap this man’s neck? Sorry, I dislike people sometimes. I calmed down by listening to Bruno Mars’ “Grenade,” and “Just The Way You Are.” I felt like standing on my desk and singing to my co-workers. At lunchtime I had a turkey burger and fries; I was crazy hungry. At lunch with Ms. Brown, Ms. Richardson, and Mr. Lambert, Mr. Lambert told us about Sex and the City two. Go figure, my unit supervisor came walking into the lunchroom and dragged a chair into the bathroom. We were scared because we thought “it was on” with someone in the bathroom. I thought she was going to hit some with the chair, but we found out she’s throwing up. Sucks! Moving on with my day and music, “Ugh, Ugh, Ugh, along with the track, man. Ugh, pardon me…Ugh…As I come back.” Two forty-one, still working, listening to “I’m Sorry,” by Chester French, featuring Wale. I focused on getting work done and going home to the Notorious E.R.I.N. Had a mini spazz out listening to “Lost In The World,” by Kanye West, during Bon Iver’s part when he says: “Run from the lights. Run from the night. Run for your life.” I don’t know why that’s my favorite part, but it is. At three thirty I took a forty-minute break, sue me. Now I’m back at my desk, eating some Reese’s cups, my favorite. Waiting for five to come my way.


Five pm, out the door, speeding. Meet my friend, Ms. Shippe, we catch the train, ride to her house to pick up her car and take it to the mechanic. So, I just embarked on a mission impossible; go to the mechanic with her, show her how to get back on the bus, met Ms. Paul at my place to get Notorious E.R.I.N. and finish writing this in forty minutes. Dropped the car off, can’t find the bus stop because SEPTA is doing construction on the bus depot. Walked two blocks to find a bus stop, hopped on the bus. Should be smooth sailing, right? Nope. The bus driver was moving so f-ing slow. Time was ticking; I needed to do so much at home. I almost snapped and killed everyone on the bus, but I regained control. Made it home, Ms. Paul dropped off the Notorious E.R.I.N. The kid enters my place with a pink tiara on and telling me, “You don’t know me, daddy. I’m Princess Erin.” Now I am finish writing this and I am yelling at the kid to take her jacket off as “Dark Fantasy” is playing in the background. Dance, Erin, dance! My day is done!

Now I would love to hear about your day. Doesn’t have to be long as mine but I am just interested in how everyone else is feeling.   My day was insanity.I’m Eric Blair

Until next time.

    Monday, womp, womp, wooooomp, I woke up with a smile on my face as usual. My smile was especially big yesterday because I was coming off a lovely weekend with my main squeeze. We got ready, rode the train into work… and that’s when my day really began. First thing I did was log onto AIM to gossip with the ladies, Serena in particular. Got my usual breakfast delivered from Pita Pit, and listened to Gayle King’s talk show. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast forward to 5pm… nothing worth mentioning happened between Gayle King and 5pm, except the usual convo with the WB Mason cutie, but even that’s barely worth mentioning. As 5 pm approached I noticed it was getting dark out… I hate that the sun goes down so early at this time of year. Anyway, at 5 I packed up, got a call from my main squeeze he said he’d be meeting me in a flash, and he must have made a few peoples days on his way over here because it took him what seemed like forever. 5:15 we’re back on the train. I’m editing, he’s yapping, we walked to my car, I love walking with him, he moves fast, its great exercise. Took my car to the mechanic, for an oil change, of course today I find out that they managed to find $200 worth of work that needed to be done. After dropping my car off I learned all about the XH bus route. Made it home, kicked off my shoes, cleaned up, made a list of my top priorities, took a nice hot shower, finalized plans for an upcoming trip to NYC, watched Reno 911 for the 5484321654th time, and dozed off. That’s my day in a nutshell 🙂

    Looks like you were very busy, thanks for the blow by blow. My days aren’t nearly interesting enough to recount the events and share it with the world! There are times when it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day. That being said, when you have an opportunity to regroup and rest, cease it! I have become the master of NOT STRESSING things that are out of my control. I got some awesome news about getting a position that would mean more money and a better title, yay! The seeds of diligence and creativity are starting to grow and will soon be ready for harvest.

    Woke up from a crazy dream that I’ve had 2 days in a row that was about a new friend of mine. I thought to myself… “Should I tell him about my dream… nah”! I then power-walked to my apartments gym to jog a slow mile on the tredmill. Shortly after that, I received my daily phone call from my mom with the usual loaded questions, comments and hook up attempts. “I met the perfect man for you Aquila! I gave him your phone number, he should be calling today!” and “I can’t wait to have a grandbaby…*sigh*”. I then received a series of text messeges from the same new friend from my dream that made me smile! Thank you for that! 🙂 Later, he actually did something to make my morning! Work was uneventful, filled with complaining students, the usual accolades from the boss and my iPod touch on shuffle! My evening was the best! Talked to a few friends for a few minutes and watched an excellent football game where the Philadelphia Eagles embarrased the Washington Redskins with a victory of 59-28! Then… I went to sleep!
