Public Service Announcement

So, I am not feeling too well and things are starting to bug me.
I have to take a break from coastie chicks because I find the material to be offensive
I am probably hormonal... but that's besides the point
I even find it hard to go on facebook as I have to read everyone's political stance

Just to share
The United States of America does not have an official language. You can stop getting your panties/whitie tighties all bunched up because you don't understand when someone is speaking in his or her native tongue. That person has every right to be in this country and reach for the American dream, whatever that may be. So if you don't like not knowing what someone is saying while she is fixing your nails or cooking your dinner... stay home. Don't come to these places of business... we know you go because they are cheaper...
And by the way, the world does not revolve around you, they aren't even talking about you. They have better things to talk about than your nasty ass cuticles or the loogie in your tea or whatever you think they did to your food
You might as well stay home and never leave or move to a compound where others like you can live.

I am beginning to dislike people of a certain race... why? They are filled with so much hate, that it is has spilled out. The white people who think they are better than everyone else and think they are good people and not racist... well, let me tell you, you are racist. With the little things you say, I catch it. Oh, you did not grow up in the south? Oh, your parents were not racist, how could you be? If I could record the evil words you say...

Black and Ghetto are not interchangeable
Asian covers more than Chinese

Clicking the Back Button

So, I've been getting annoyed with people lately. Most of the people I don't know personally, just know them virtually through forums or facebook.

On one forum, a member posted about being angry that friends were commenting on the fact that at least her husband has a job even if he is not getting a raise. She was upset, saying because her husband is military, they make huge sacrafices. And other wives starting joining in. Ummm, yeah, I get it. My husband was away on a ship... but I managed. It was not the end of the world. You know, there are other working people, not military who make less and recieve less benefits than the military and put thier lives on the line every day -- Police Officers and Fire Fighters are just a few... Maybe I am fortunate because my husband does get to come home every night or maybe because I was in the service, I know that he is safe and not messing around.

And I am really getting tired of racist people. Just because someone is Black and not wealthy, does not mean he is "ghetto".
a section of a city, esp. a thickly populated slum area, inhabited predominantly by members of an ethnic or other minority group, often as a result of social or economic restrictions, pressures, or hardships.
The neighborhood I live in is a predominatley working class Black neighborhood. It is not a ghetto. My neighhors take pride in the homes they own!
And on facebook, just because your neighbor is Black, does not mean she is ghetto... because that means you are too... you racist... and don't offer her sweet tea and think she will cut you! People like you are the reason why racism is still around.

And... GYP! come on! No one fucking "gyped" you! You are insulting a whole race of people when you use that term! Try ripped off or something else.

So, instead of starting a war of words, I just simply click the back button and bite my tongue.

Our House

Things look like they are moving along swiftly for our house.
We have an appraisal for our current home tomorrow morning. We are a little nervous, but our agent is going to fight for how much we are selling our home. That's the only thing that could break down the entire selling and buying experience.

There have not been any homes bought in our neighborhood in over a year, so there is nothing to compare our home to. The appraiser will have to go out several miles for a comparison.

The new home is very nice. It is in a great neighborhood and has a community pool.

I have so much stuff do between now and early April. Transfering services and canceling or starting up other services. I also want to have professional movers and cleaners.
Going to keep track of other expenses

Yo Dog!

My sister and I are on an informal quest to find the best hotdogs

So far we've been to two places during our lunch breaks at work.

The first place we went is Harvey's Hotdogs. It looks like it has been around for awhile... kind of like a hole in the wall place. That atmosphere was friendly and it seemed most of the patrons were regulars. The staff were very friendly.

The second place we went is Perfectly Frank. It is a new establishment and seemed cleaner than Harvey's. However, we were the only customers sitting and eating in. There were two people who had take out. The place also offered breakast items on the weekend and that will be nice once we move to our new home. I also liked the fact they offered french fries too
