dinner time

I don't think these loaded in sequential order but whatever.
To kick the year off properly, I have not made resolutions to which I know I will never keep, goals I won't attempt and so on.
But I have resolved to eat at home for the first week or so. Or as often as possible. So, here was a meal prepared recently in keeping my word to myself...

I despise $$$ car repairs: I despise moving offices again! I despise when people who r suppose 2 count constantly tell u that ur mean - esp when everyone else thinks ur nice as pie; I despise ridiculous opposite gender games; I despise budget constraints; I despise situations that go no where; I despise when they just won't let it go...that's all 4 now.

creeping & games

I was having a great dinner at the yummy PF Changs last night and noticed this tall, older, distinguished gentleman who arrived with a date in tow.

Whatever. I was just noticing.

Well they were seating in the adjacent table. The entire dinner he looked at me straight through his date! Initially I thought I just wasn't seeing it properly and it was just my imagination.
Of course his date looked quite young, but who cares - whatever floats your boat.

So as he & the date are leaving, he precedes to eye me up right in my face! My entire dinner table broke out in laughter and mimicked slurping noises. It was too funny. can't hate the playa - gotta hate the game they say. guess you'd have to have been there.

I think what makes it hilarious to me is that my dad & I had a convo the other night about the older man, younger woman thing.
He said, the only thing a man whats that is old would be money.
I giggled. But at the same time it pissed me off since I am not frolicking in my 20's anymore.

Similar conversation erected from a phone call from my sister. I didn't bring the topic up. She felt to tell me that I may have to marry young if there is any hope at all...
Don't get me wrong, I am not out cruising any scene for a husband. Not really in that section of the market necessarily.

I have these traditional expectations that the right things happen at the right time.

My sister made jokes about how funny it would be if some random person from the past showed up to rekindle something from ancient years past. She brought out a name from the archives.
My take on this is - folks are living the lives they want to live. Right?
How successful are do overs anyway?
They say people grow over time and experience things that make them more enlightened and perhaps a better person overall.

I think I have met quite a few people who have not seem to change

Although these conversations I held with my sister and father were comical at the time, it also made me wonder if they think that I am turning into some old maid with no prospects in sight?

30, no drama basically(as I have learned to drop the A-Holes in my life), no husband, no kids. We'll see what life has to offer is my motto. Till then, I am cool as a cucumber!!!


On another note of games: PlayStation 3 is out.
I have not bought a PlayStation game in years. However this one seems pretty sweet. Makes me what a dedicated Game Room in my dream house!

Proud Papa

My father finally expressed to me today that he is proud of me and the accomplishments that I have made in my life.
I really never knew. I knew that my mom would be proud but she was more expressive than he is in the parent arena.
All I can say is WOW. My dad is always full of silly jokes that I never found funny. I think sometimes I am too serious and have always expected this specific parent role from him. It has been difficult to accept him for who he is because all I ever heard was how different he was when my parents married. So I think that I was waiting to see this other person. Perhaps this other person who would seem more equivalent to my mother. After all, they fell in love, married and had children based on some likeness. right?
So he tells me that he has always been proud of me and may have expressed it to me in an indirect manner. He said that he would always tell me that "I was good to go!"
I would have never realized that was suppose to interpret to "proud of you oldest daughter".
I was such a straight laced, honor student and self sufficient child. But I always wanted to know that my parents were behind me.
He then went on to state that if he never conveyed his feelings in a more direct way to me, that I should know that he brags about me to everyone he knows.
Who would have every known?
Especially since I always felt that he blows me off when I come to town to visit the family. Maybe that's a whole 'nother can of worms.

Well, interestingly enough after 30 years, I got the wonderful opportunity to know that my father is proud of me.

Theme of the week: Jay Z: Show Me What You Got~!
