So they got me in the spirit to celebrate my b-day today.  I had a feeling I would do this, lol…decide at the last minute that my birthday would be better spent in a semi-drunken stupor with friends vs. sitting at the crib doing nothing.  I was so surprised last night when one of my clients kicked off our meeting with a birthday cake and balloons!  They sang happy birthday to me.  Although I hate being the center of attention it made me smile, thank you guys.  That really meant a lot. J


Did an impromptu visit to Stats (sports bar on Marietta Street) with Pippi and Brian for Mojitos on the rooftop.  The view was hot.  I’m a Patron and Kettle One or Goose snob thus me being the last Mohichan to try a Mojito.  Pretty tasty!  I had like three, lol.  We had a good time just chillin and choppin the shyt.  After that it was a quick run to Brady street before heading home.  Believe it or not I did some work!  The one thing I’ve learned about my line of work is that clients don’t give a flip about your birthday or personal life when they want their projects completed.  The grind never stops and continues to get heavier. 


Tonight it’s going down.  I spent about an hour texting all of my friends this morning – letting them know that it’s about to pop off for a good cause!  Might as well celebrate the fact that I MADE IT to 30 in good health and sound mind.  Someone told me that this is actually where the fun begins.  Guess that means I gotta do what it do.  Hmm, what to wear?  It’s my f$#&@* birthday!


Que theme song.  Haha, yea.


*Almost forgot to shout out my girl nadia for getting a feature in this video! yet another black girl in the city doing it how she wants to. 🙂

I really enjoyed my stay at your Blog, it is done very well, I will peruse it a little more longer the next time i visit, but it is very artistic and I don’t know, I’d say high end-ish, like a Vogue article on some luxurious Diva who lives in France who owns a Perfume Company or something. Very Nice. Come check my blog out when you get a chance and let me know what you think. I actually have a blog and a website.

The Blog is
