I'M SPECIAL...AMONG OTHER THINGS

It's September!!!!! September is significant to me because it is the month in which I was born. And in addition, I was born on 09/09/1981. Let me break it down for you guys, just in case you missed it. I was born on the 9th day, of the 9th month, in '81 which is the product of 9x9, and if you add 8 to 1, you get 9. So just in case you didn't know, I am SPECIAL!!!!! LOL. And to top it off, this year is the big 2-5! I wasn't planning on doing anything, but then my good friend Brandi decided that that was unacceptable so she's sent out an Evite to all our friends across the country to see if people are willing to come to ATL to have lunch and then hit the club that night. The reason I wasn't planning on doing anything that weekend was cos all my friends are all over the place and I didn't want to bother anyone with anything but it looks like folks don't mind...the RSVP list is growing....so guess what? I'm SPECIAL!!!!!!

Ok, enough of blowing my own horn. That's not a typical Virgo characteristic....or is it, Yetty? LOL. Speaking of Virgo characteristics, according to this website, the traits of a Virgo are:
Analyst, Purist, Plays safe, Worrier, Has mood swings, Perfectionist, Easily learns mastery, Demands respect, Fair judgement, Pessimistic, Frequently depressed, Destructive at times
Virgo Likes are: Pursuit of 'trueness', Standards, Proper methodology, Practicality, Neat & tidy, Friendliness .Virgo Dislikes are: Chaos, Noise, Assymetry, Change, Risk, Nagging

Now, I don't read my horoscope everyday but there is something to be said for how accurate these things can be sometimes. I agree with most of what it says and to be honest some of those traits, like the mood swings, worrier, and pessimistic are traits that I have had to consciously work on being better about. And I do dislike nagging others and others nagging me and I am majorly afraid of taking risks which is something else I'm working on. I always in pursuit of the truth and want to know and understand why things happen. I don't necessarily agree with the frequently depressed, or destructive at times, nor do I dislike change....I embrace it but maybe other Virgos have issues with that. As far as relationships go, according to the same website, Virgo would most likely get along well with Capricorn (Born December 22 - January 19) and Aquarius (Born January 20 - February 18)and Virgo would most likely meet opposition with Saggitarius (Born November 22 - December 21) and Scorpio (Born October 23 - November 21. Interestingly enough, I haven't dated any men whose birthdays fall within any of these signs so I can't speak for it's accuracy. Some interesting Virgos include my girl Beyonce, Micheal Jackson (SCARY!!!), Mother Teresa and Queen Elizabeth the 1st. I found a list of other famous Virgos here and it's interesting to see that many of them are creative types, politicians and humanitarians....careers that potentially have the power to change the world by encouraging all forms of discourse and action. Something to ponder. Moving on......

So I've been meaning to put my own 101 list up in the vein of Onada's but I haven't gotten round to it. If I had, one of the things on my list was to get my legs and bikini waxed. I've always wanted to, but I'm a scaredy cat and most people who know me, know that I would never voluntarily put myself through any pain whatsoever. So I did the bikini thing a few weeks ago and........it wasn't bad! It looked great, and it didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. So, I starting thinking I was sophisticated and decided to move on to the next step of getting my legs waxed yesterday. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!!!!!!!!! Never again in my life will I do that ish. It stung like nothing else, and I think stinging is a lot worse than hurting.....when something hurts, it's just a kind of pain that's there. When it stings, it's a sharp, pulling, itching, smarting, shock of pain. Men, it was terrible. And the fact that it's a larger surface area, and there's a lot of bone there made it even worse. In fact, I think I may have lost a patch of skin somewhere. To further worsen the situation, I had to point to places my waxer missed...I mean, that's not my job is it? Shoot, I don't have 20/20 vision and I could see patches of hair that she'd missed from miles away. Which meant that she had to go over those spots.....men, can you say PAIN! Needless to say if I ever change my mind (which is highly unlikely) about getting waxed again, then I won't be going there! I won't put the place on blast but if anyone who lives in ATL would like to know where, holla at me. I definitely understand why Steve Carrell went around with a half waxed back in 40 year old Virgin. If it wasn't for the sake of vanity, me myself would be walking around with half waxed legs...LOL. I don't know who sent me. Anyone with any fun waxing stories, do share.

I am going to MD this weekend. I am soooooooooooo excited. I get to see Low and Yuwa and meet other new people and see the city and just have fun. It is going to be crazy! While I'm looking forward to painting the town red, what I am MOST looking forward to is the gisting and the relaying of stories. Low is the most fun storyteller, and when you get around her, you get the funny disease too! She's INFECTIOUS. LOL.

Finally,Yetty tagged me so I'll get to it after the weekend. Hope you all have a fun long weekend. Be safe, have a good time and recharge those batteries. Don't do anything you'll regret. Here's a fun quote about holidays.
