For some reason today feels like a Monday. I was so pumped up and determined not to have the typical Monday letdown yesterday, that I pretty much made myself stay awake and focused yesterday, despite the excessive "Happy New Years" wishes. No such luck today. The weather is cold, icy and rainy, my lady and I did not want to get out of bed, and there was just little to no motivation. But I'm here, I'm upbeat and positive and all that jazz, and then...

Right after my walk to work, I sat down at my desk and attempted to take a swig of water and I missed my mouth completely and spilled it down my chin and the front of my shirt(that's what she said). Because it is so cold in here, the water stain is not drying as quickly as it would if I were say in front of a fan or in 70 degree weather. So when I got up to go to the restroom, I was feeling like Joe the Jackass with this stain on my shirt. Still, I am trying to be positive.

At about 6am this morning it hit me that by the time the weather gets warm, I will be engaged to be married. I'm not scared or nervous or anything, but I am still pretty incredulous about it all. When you read some of blog entries back in '06 and the early part of '07, and there's no way in hell that anyone in their right mind could have predicted I'd be where I am right now. Sometimes my lady and I look at each other and say, "Can you believe we're together?". Once I get married, I have no clue how I will proceed with this blog, but that's another entry for another day.

By the way, does the fact that I have been listening to House music all morning, make me a tad bit ghey?

Inside That I Cried - CeCe Peniston
Now, I am not playing this ballad because I am sad or melancholy or any of that. I just like Cece's voice, and this song has been in my head all week. End of disclaimer.

Playa ... you still pumping that CeCe? Next you will link "forever in your eyes" by mint condition.

Just messing with you .... you engaged? GOD is good

(if you was a woman I'd put a smiley face right after that last sentence, but playa to playa - we don't do that - so here's a long distance "terrorist" fist bump)

Sab,
I'm not engaged quite yet, but the wheels are in motion. And if you ever throw a smiley face my way, I would definitely have to re-evaluate our whole shit man. And I STILL play that mint condition like its going out of style...
