Several really random updates....

Monday, February 4, 2008
EDIT: Ok, so, yesterday around 12:30pm I got a call from the Maryland SPCA. They said I had to come and get my dog because he was barking and growling at anyone who tried to get near him. I'm not sure how much I believe that, but whatever. Anyway, he's back home and I'm back at square one. I don't know what to do when the pound won't take your dog. Like...wtf am I supposed to do? I can't keep him. I'm in the same situation now that I was in when I decided he needed to go. The only option they offered was for him to be euthanized. I'm not going to have my dog killed just because I'm not fit to care for him anymore. WTF should I do?

I've been missing in action for a bit, but I wanted to update you all on the world of Mr. Jones. So, here goes:


My company’s annual gala has come and gone...finally
.

You all might remember me bitching and moaning last week about this huge annual event at my job and how hard we all were working to make it happen. Well, I am happy to report that hell week is officially over and that the night went off without a hitch. Our annual gala always makes me realize that there are some rich bitches in this world, but we love them because they give to a great cause. Despite this little recession we’re in, there were some REALLY wealthy people in that building that night. One couple randomly decided to give us $1 million. One of our live auction packages went for $37K. Another went for $26K. Watching people spend thousands of dollars on the live auction was simply incredible. Can you imagine dropping $37,000 on an auction package after paying $50K or $100K on the table you’re sitting at?

Wow, right?

My Dog Is Gone

I didn’t mention him much here, but I had a dog for about a year. He was great, but my schedule just didn’t work out for him. He spent way too much time in his crate and not enough time running and playing and stuff. I took him on Sunday to my local SPCA office. I was fine until the lady asked what I most liked about him. I’ll admit to dropping a tear or two. They quickly whisked him away and that was that. There’s a chance I could get called to pick him up today if he doesn’t do well on his temperament test. On one hand I’m hoping I don’t have to do that, but on the other hand, I miss my dog.

Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape

Aside from phenomenal sex, the one good thing that came of this one failed relationship a couple of years ago is my love of Meshell Ndegeocello. She’s the bomb. Slowly but surely I’m acquiring her entire discography. Last month I was stuck on ‘This World Has Made Me the Man of My Dreams’. Now, my shit is ‘Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape’. She’s the bomb. There’s no way around that. I suggest you bitches cop that joint.

Miami

I leave for Miami in 17 days. I'm soooo excited. Can't wait to ditch this 20-degree weather for the sun and fun.

That's all for now.

Wow on the job philanthropy! I know how you feel...my Busta is 9 years old and although I sometimes have trouble keeping a steady schedule he is my faithful companion...never complains...never explains...LOL
Hope they call you and you rethink the doggy thing...hey, if you can't do a dog, what makes you think you have time for a man? (that was fucked up; I take it back...fo' real...I don't know why I said that...LOL)
I am hittin' the slopes this coming weekend and looking forward to PR AND my cruise! We want pics of the Miami trip!!!

First, next years gala I need to attend. I figure I bust through there lookin fly..(LOL) and pick me up a good looking somebody with a load of cash. I will have no more worries about money.

It's sad that you have to give away your dog. I am sure he was loved by you very much.

I need to get Meshell cd. Everyone is going gaga over it. It feels like I am missing out.

I want to go to Miami. Sun in the fun sounds good to me!

I bet Miami is going to be real good!

OMG ME'SHELL!!!! I loooove her.


If you haven't already you need to get Peace Beyond Passion and, one of my fav cds of all time, Bitter. They are both perfection set to music.

I have been thinking about putting my dog up for adoption lately because she spends so much time locked up and she's starting to act out and drive me crazy. But I can't bear to do it. I hope you rethink it.

Keep the dog. What Cocoa said may have been harsh, but it is sorta true. You have to manage your time well enough to give attention to all responsibilities of your life.
