Well, it’s summer time…

I started a “Tales from the Cuckoo’s nest”  series on my blog last week. Anytime something “unique” happens at work, there should be a blog following. Here’s part 1, and part 2. I almost feel like i’ve come full circle with this blog.

Moving day is getting closer… I need to increase my packing efforts, I promised my friends that everything would be packed and ready to go the day of. I’m still churning out articles over at Platform Nation, and I really do enjoy it and hopefully I can continue my efforts with them.

The weekend went pretty quickly. I saw True Blood on Sunday… I’m not gonna ruin it for anyone that missed it but… No, Mary-Anne you DIDN’T tell me that.

The series is starting to really pick up the pace; there are so many things to keep track of. What’s YOUR favorite “new discovery” for the season ??


Tales from the Cuckoo’s nest: Light Bright

July 16, 2009

All day today, everyone has been playing with the lights…

I made it to the point where I was able to ignore the flickering of the lights. It also helped when they STOPPED.

“Mrs. Mack” decided that she’s going to fix the lights according to University standards; due to the budget cuts, the University stated that lights should only be on 2/3 of the way (there are 3 halogen tubes per light fixture.

This is wasting TOO much money !!!

This is wasting TOO much money !!!

As soon as Mrs Mack explains the situation and asks if the lights bothered me, “Mr. Asian man” decides he’s gonna go and turn ON the lights back to full brightness. He complains that he can’t see at all and he’s playing his accent up extra (believe me, I hear him on the phone often enough to know the “levels” of his accent”)

Mrs Mack tries to get him a lamp to help him out, but “It’s not enough” the lamp apparently can’t fit anywhere for him…

This man is COMPLAINING about the lights and the lamp !!!

so for now, we’re back to full lights… Come ON 4pm !!!


Tales of the Cuckoo’s nest: The beginning

July 15, 2009
so you said you smelled smoke up here?

so you said you smelled smoke up here?

It’s been a week since the new neighbors have moved in. Words cannot begin to describe the insanity that has befallen our beloved nest. It’s hard enough dealing with the 4 big birds, now we have these magpies that WON’T SHUT UP !!!

  1. WHY do you have an electric kettle at your desk? I don’t enjoy hearing a kettle whistle while I’m at work.
  2. STOP talking to your kids on the phone so loudly. I don’t need to know that “Timmy” is having a hard time doing his chores, or that “Jessie” is fighting over the remote.
    1. WHY is your office phone so loud whether you are here or not? CUT IT OUT !!!
  3. There IS a difference between speaking and whispering. I suggest you figure out that difference and PICK one.

Come on clock on my Mac… 4:00pm is SO close !!!


Monday 35

July 13, 2009

*yawn*

Is it Monday already ???

The weekends seem to just speed through…

Since Last Week, I had one big blog discussion on here talking about the “Gentlemigga“. It’s been a while since I wrote such a popular blog; I almost forgot what it felt like. Saturday was the Probate for Zeta Phi Beta Sororority Inc. over at FSU. I want to say congratulations to those new ladies; I didn’t see the show because I had a prior engagement, but I heard it was good. If anyone has pictures/video let me know because I’d like to see it.

I think my allergies have gotten better. I’m not sure if it’s the claritin or not…

Moving day is getting closer…

I’ve been really busy over at Platform Nation. If you are a video game fan, you should check them out.

This week, if you say “Malts and Shakes” you get a free topping over at OneFresh Stir-Fry.

I feel like I should be talking about something else…

I’ve been purposely avoiding the recent deaths of all the celebrities. Personally, there are PLENTY of resources out there for each of those untimely deaths, there’s no need for my 2 cents. My thoughts and prayers go out to the respective families.

NCAA Football 2010 comes out this week. I’m currently debating if I should start doing “news reports” about that again… A lot of people were confused last year, so I’ll think about it.

The new Harry Potter movie comes out this week also; I’m thinking about going to the midnight showing from a journalistic point of view. I’m all too curious to see how many people will dress up as their favorite character.

wingardium leviosa !!!

Wingardium Leviosa !!!

That’s all I have for today. I didn’t see all of TrueBlood last night. I plan on watching it tonight.

Oh… and if you haven’t, PLEASE see “The Hangover”. That is all.


Busy

July 10, 2009

I don’t want my readers to think I’ve been neglecting them… it’s just that I’ve been busy writing articles for Platform Nation !!!

If  you are a video game fan, you should go check them out and tell your friends.  In the past 10 days, I’ve written

I’m specifically writing this because I was given the opportunity to break the news about a new Screen-shot for Tekken 6.

I’m not going to post the picture here, but you should go see it there


Rise of the Gentlemigga

July 6, 2009

*Disclaimer: there is some REALLY rough language in this post. I assure you it’s all within context. I also tried to keep the gratuitous foul language to a minimum. *

What is a Gentlemigga you might be asking…

Well, I spent the better part of today reading about it and putting my own opinions in on the matter. To sum it up; here’s a young woman’s opinion on the topic:

A “gentlemigga” is a MAN who has all the characteristics of a gentleman. he treats you like a lady, has a good head on his shoulders, he’s about business. he’s civilized, educated, sensitive, and well-mannered. BUT when the need arises, his “n***a” side comes out. he’s ready to fight for his girl. he’s intense. he’s almost primal…  he knows how love you gently AND do ya like Tyrese sang.. “straight f***in”. a “gentlemigga” can adapt to what is needed by his lady. a “gentlemigga”…is all of the above.

To sum it up, it’s a Gentleman and a “hood n***a”. Not the ones that have moments like these:

and NOT the ones that wear Skinny Jeans either…

but yes, these are stand up men (color is only an option in this case) who know how to take care of their woman with the book of chivalry (It’s not on Amazon; So, if you didn’t get a copy, it’s probably for the best.) and can at the flip of the switch transform into N***A mode to stand up for what’s right and to protect his loved ones.

this post is by no means created to promote ignorance; but rather to educate the masses. Women deserve GMs, not the boys who are too busy playing games, and messing with the emotions of our queens (Nubian and otherwise)

To sum it all up the Creator of this Movement had this to say:

“There are only a few of us and we are what women want and need all in one.”

Which leads to what woman “want” and “need” but THIS isn’t the blog for that discussion.

Women, you should NEVER settle for this…

Instead, you should be treated like, and look forward to…

What do you think? do GMs exist? do you have one? do you want one?

Well, this one is already off the market (look for the key here)… but there are others out there…

The Female counterpart is coming soon (pending correct terminology)


Monday 34

July 6, 2009

Hopefully nothing like this happened to any of my readers…

I’m starting to feel a little bit better, my sinuses aren’t killing me as much as they were over the weekend. It’s the first Monday in July, which means I SHOULD be doing a monthly update of everything I wrote about in June; Alas, it was mainly Monday updates and and the new facebook vanity url thing. Naturally, I’ve apologized to everyone and I’m trying to do better. I really am.

Last night, instead of showing a new episode of True Blood, they did a recap mini-marathon. Last night was your night to get caught up all in one shot. If you missed it, I’m sorry; but if you’re a “real fan” you would have already known and recorded this on Tivo AND VHS (I didn’t do that, I just watched it on tv like a “normal fan”)

I’m telling you, this series never ceases to amaze me. They give you just enough slow time to catch your breath for the next wave of crazy stuff they insist on sending your way.

Is it me, or does the “golden boy” resemble Tim Tebow… No?

I’ve been working on articles over at Platform Nation. I’ve written 10 articles for them now. Go read them:

  • My first one dealt with Kingdom Hearts 358/2 getting a “release date” from Gamestop.
  • Then I spoke about Monster Hunters coming for the PSP (btw, I’m taking donations for the PSP Go)
  • This is the article I used to get the opportunity to write with these guys. This one dealt with the E3 Video game conference.
  • This is my first Video game Review; it was for the Sony Exclusive “inFAMOUS” I had to beat the game in a week.
  • This article spoke about the Playstation Videogame magazine known as “Qore”
  • Then I Did a review for “Trash Panic” which was essentially Tetris in a Trash Can.
  • Free Realms is getting Guild Support, which was news for me; even though I’m still waiting on PS3 Support
  • Then there was my review for Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires. For some reason, I just kept putting this game on hold.
  • There’s a soundboard for the iPhone coming out that’s pure evil.
  • Finally, I noticed something that BestBuy is cooking up over there in way of a PS3 Bundle.

And that’s all about all I’ve written so far for those Guys. Tell your video game friends to go read them and leave comments… I’ll only get into the “big leagues” if they notice that people like my work. If you don’t like my work, tell me what I can change.

Moving Day is about 4 weeks away, I am quite excited. I’m on box hunting duties until then.

And Finally…

A little kitty told me that there is something on the horiZon this Saturday. If you are in the area, there’s going to be a health fair first from 5-6pm, and then the  Spring 2009 ladies of the Ravishing Rho Kappa chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority inc. will be having their probate at 6pm on the Union Green; that area that’s BEHIND the Union. I’m gonna try to be out there to record and blog about it…
