My mom and I went to the Capital Book Fest on Saturday, and I swear it was an experience that changed my life. I enjoy writing this blog, because it has become an effective vehicle for me to both express my feelings, and to force myself to consistently write. But when I went to this festival, and saw all of the writers who had actually published their work, it made me want to step up my writing game to the next level(I sound like an athlete now). I am not arrogant by any means, but when I looked at some of the books these authors had gotten published, it made me realize that my book is long overdue. These authors had worked hard to get their books published I'm sure, but I wasn't impressed at the subject matter and I damn sure wasn't moved by the quality of writing. I realize I sound like a snob, but hey, I am competitive by nature and these were my thoughts. I need to put out a book ASAP. I'm thinking of blogging for a few more months, and then I'm going to put out a book of all my entries. And then after that, I am going to release another book. The subject matter? I have no clue, but I'm doing it. The world has been deprived of my writing for far too long. My umi said shine the light on the world..shine the light for the world to see...

I saw my ex at this book festival, and she was promoting her book Transitions: Boy Krazy, and I must admit she looked damn good. She was sexy, she looked happy promoting her book, and her mother and niece were by her side. My mother and I stopped by her booth, bought two books and wished her luck, and it felt good. Over the past 3 years, I helped her with that book a bit, but for the most part, she was the one struggling and slaving over that book, so to see her finally reap the benefits was very rewarding. I still love her and want the best. And as I said in another blog entry, she remains the only woman I've ever really been head over heels in love over.

My beloved Eagles whupped up on Terrell Owens and the Dallas Cowboys, and I am ecstatic. Donovan McNabb proved to TO, and the world, that he is not a choke artist, and he and the Eagles are ready for prime time. It may be time to fire up the Eagles Super Bowl bandwagon..feel free to jump on.

I woke up early Sunday morning to the sound of my neighbors having sex. And it wasn't just regular sex, it was that urgent, middle of the night, I gots to have you right now sex that was happening. They were talking trash to one another, I heard ass slapping, and I heard some of those sex noises that really made me jealous. I don't know what it is about hearing people having sex that is arousing, but I have no shame in admitting I was intrigued.. Of course, later on that day, I saw those same neighbors leaving their apt, and I was thoroughly disgusted once I put a face with the noises I had heard earlier. But still..if you can hear your neighbors having sex some time in the future..take some time to listen. It's highly erotic...

And now..I'm done

Can't wait to read that book . . . wonder what it was about HER that you were in love with . . . did you get new neighbors? Upstairs or downstairs?

I agree about hearing your neighbors have sex..highly erotic...but knowing your neighbors can hear you having sex is more erotic
