"Let Me Go" -- Ray Parker Jr.

Post and dash!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks y'all and it doesn't look like I'll be able to ramp back for at least another week or so.

But you know what? Da-da-da-da-daaaaaa I'm lovin' it!

I've been talking with someone about an interesting opportunity as well as trying to pull together some crazy fun projects at work.

Anyway, that's all!!! What y'all doin?

Clarity. Get You Some.

I was part of a two-day long email thread that I was not contributing to where it seemed none of the people could understand what the other was saying.

I ignored until today when it got to be too damn much in my inbox, I skimmed the thread, sent a two sentence response to everybody, problem solved.

DoubleU TEE EF YO?!

The person who started the thread was mad that the other person they were trying to get action from wasn't understanding and attributing it to a language barrier (which, admittedly, there was).

However!

This person ALSO wasn't clearly expressing themselves. Nothing in their message said EXACTLY what the problem was and EXACTLY how to fix it. I did that in my two sentences. Remember, this was a TWO-DAY LONG email thread. TWO DAYS PEOPLE!

I don't understand how we can work in the business of communication and be such poor communicators. It boggles the mind.

Helllooooooooooooooo e'rybody!!

I've been hanging out and chilling and basically enjoying the summer.

I had a couple of dates last week -- dinner with the teacher that I'm crushing on, and drinks with a guy I met on Match.

This second Match date was v. v. attractive. And that's it. I mean, I always think, "if we don't click, hey, I have plenty of friends I can introduce this person to so nothing lost." Not this brother. As easy on the eyes as he is, I can't do it. There is just no THERE there. He better stay pretty, po' thang. Bless his heart.

My social calendar is booked through the rest of the week and I have another date scheduled with the teacher this weekend, so all in all, I'm having a great summer.

What y'all doing?

I is a VOWel

For whatever reason I stumbled across our wedding vows last night when I was looking for something else. Reading them made me tear up because I remember how happy I was that day and how much I meant these words:

I, SLS, take you, Mr.SLS, to be my husband, my partner in life, and my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow and forever. I will trust you and honor you. I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will love you faithfully through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. Whatever may come, I will always be there. As I have given you my hand to hold, so I give you my heart.

Mr. SLS, as a sign of my love for you and my desire to share my whole life's journey with you, I give you this ring with the pledge that I shall cherish and care for you with all my heart and soul from this day forward.
