So about five minutes before I walk into my office, I hear this song by Eric Benet called, "What Could Have Been". The song is off of an unreleased cd he made entitled, "Better and Better". Basically the song is about him reminiscing on a love of his(I'm guessing Halle Berry but I could be wrong), and how he wishes the outcome would have been much different. The song is excellent, but it is very very sad. I wish I had listened to this song when I left the house, and then finished up with something a bit more uptempo. I could only sing this type of song to one woman, but man I wish I could dedicate some other songs to some of the other women I've talked to..I think it would be downright hilarious. Of course I would never do something like that, because then it appears as if I am not over some of these people, which is an insult to my diabolical side. Sometimes I just enjoy doing mindless things like that. That's character flaw of Rashad number 45.

Anyway, the bigger issue I pondered, is how many of my past mistakes in relationships/flings I carry over into the next situation. In my old job, we did something called tracking and evaluation, and this tactic was meant to analyze a task, come up with a mechanism to track it, figure out its effectiveness, and then evaluate what steps could be taken to tweak it going forward. There needs to be someone who can step in and do this for relationships..almost like an exit interview. The right questions need to be asked, suggestions should be made, and a plan of action going forward should be put together. I'm sure I could do this myself, but it would be much better if an outside person could work with me or whoever. I should create this business..because relationships NEVER go out of style, and neither does heartbreak.

If I hear Michael Richards apologize on more time for saying the word nigger like it was going out of style, I am going cut my eyebrows off, and draw them back on in an angry fashion. His apologies at this point are contrived, and I'd respect him a whole lot more if he just came out and said, "look..I meant exactly what I said. You all are niggers, you use the word all the time, I wanted to get in on the action, and I'm not apologizing. I've made a substantial amount of money off of Seinfeld already, so I don't need a career, so kiss my ass you black nigger tar babies(ok perhaps I overdid it)." Now he would get a beat down that Rodney King wouldn't recognize, but at least I'd respect the man for sticking by his opinion right or wrong. That type of intergrity is scarce these days.

To end this entry I will leave you with this song. The other day, while my boss was at my desk, this song just happened to come on thanks to the shuffle function of Windows Media. I was thoroughly embarassed, and hopefully you'll click on this link, and the exact same thing will happen to you. Be sure to thank me for it later.

OH...my....gosh.

That was thoroughly embarassing, thankyouverymuch. I should have known better than to ASSUME that it wasn't really that serious, and not consider lowering my speaker volume.

However, imagining the look on your face as that song burst over the airwaves while your boss stands over your shoulder? Priceless.

On another note, I was totally unaware that Google had ALREADY bought out every hot-damn thing. Now they have BlogSpot? WTH?!?!

That's funny. My boss would have wanted to hear the whole thing.

FYI.."What could have been" was on the "Glitter" soundtrack...way before the breakup with Halle.
