Week Wrap Up

March 13, 2009

Its been a great week. I know Im young, but still old enough to be older to some I guess. I met Carrie*, A senior in college when she was interning at Vibe last summer and working the door at the Chrisette Michelle event. My name had gotten off the list but she remembered me from the MPA conference. We'd been emailing every since and she was in town and dropped by the office. I saw me in her bright eyes as she counts down to graduation and gave me some energy. Also did the radio appearance for Teen Diaries which was tons of fun.
Today I've been rather productive. been checking out some new music including Foreign Exchange and Idris Elba's song, which i like . . .that man's is so scrumptious and that accent is something serious

Also, after pushing Online Dating on all my friends lately I am trying to practice what I preach and signed up for Plentyoffish.com, and already have gotten plenty of responses from cute and sensible guys. Who knew?

Caught up with the BFF today. She is the reason why I try to minimize contact with friends during work hours. I literally am laughing out loud whenever we talk for five minutes. Seems my parent isnt the only one dating as her mom gets her groove back and her guy is already making a serious move. her bday is in June and he has already made plans, leaving my girls plans a bust for mom's bday . . .and my dad's lady friend is coming to NY next week with her 22 year old twins and he wants me to meet them all . . .sigh. Well, this week flew by. Had dinner at Philippe's, Mr. Chow's NY restaurant, on business and we kept looking at the other Black patrons, two guys trying to see their deal. Turned out one was Nick Cannon. lol.

Now Im heading downton to a surprise bday dinner of one of my college buddies. Any suggestions on what to get my buddy this weekend for her bridal shower next week? I wanted something sexy, but don't want her to open up handcuffs or this new guide to going down with both our moms sitting by. hmm . . .
