who i be: chapter ii

The rest of the set. Wow. I had to actually think.
From Cobb:
1. What convinced you finally, that you were somebody?
Two things come immediately to mind.
1: I was born in New York but spent most of my time in the South. You had to know that I hated it here in the outset. Speaking perfect English in the midst of Southerners and being mollified and bullied at every outlet was really no good. In high school, as much as I didn’t like the South and didn’t fit in, I was sitting in the cafeteria and they called out the top 10 list. I figured since I was a little too different, I wouldn’t have made the cut. When they called out my name listed in the top 10, I had never seen everyone give me a standing ovation. The bullying and demoralizing stopped. That’s when I knew that being in the South wasn’t so bad after all.
2: My past job…even though I was eventually laid off, I made it to the top of the technical chain and was able to take advantage of stock options. That let me know that I could do anything I wanted. That statement still holds.
2. Describe your favorite kind of BBQ.
There’s a place here called Fat Matt’s Rib Shack, which sells beef and pork ribs. They don’t accept credit cards, only cash. This barbecue has hickory goodness in it, with barbecue that’s spicy enough to make a dent, but not spicy enough to cause indigestion. The type of barbecued ribs that they let marinate for at least 4 hours, and slide right off the bone.
3. Who did it hurt you most to leave? My second ex. They taught me that it was okay to be young, a professional, and still have wants and needs out of life, and attain them, yet still keep the kid inside. I never saw them again, and they passed a year after we broke up.

Mak asked:
1. How do you let that bitch anastasia run that house like she owns it? You making shit bad for us breeders. She does. You don’t let her lick on you though. What’s up with that? Aftaid of the lick of a female?
2. Do you consider yourself brave? I’d say so, yeah.
3. How are you feeling today? Feeling pretty good today, surprisingly.
Lashundra, the hot one:
1. What is your pet peeve? I can’t think of any… If there’s a concert going on, or a CD coming out, and I find out these things after the fact, that annoys the f*** out of me. Vacuuming when I’m on the computer is also a no-no.
2. How many times have your heart been broken? Twice.
3. Where is your favorite vacation locations? Hawaii and Chicago.
Anfanee gave me only one, and cut and pasted too. I can tell.
In a world where technology brings everything to ones finger tips, why is it important to establish “real” relationships and have “real” experiences? Because without realness, these hopes and dreams don’t exist. Only theories and facts.
1) how do you feel about feet? They’re alright. I never give them much thought. I don’t have much of a foot fetish.
2) why isn’t the atlanta underground further underground like they showed on scooby doo? I don’t know. If it were further underground, people would be coming up missing. I’m jus’ sayin.
3) what do you like on your pizza? Pepperoni, beef, chicken, alfredo, gorgonzola, asiago.
Phill, with his musings:
Why do white people like Wayne Brady so much? Say the name slowly. Wayne Brady. It’s not like you’re saying Cleophus Smith or Dewante Lashiela Butrella.
Cats or dogs? Dogs. Anastasia.
If you were at a bar and a midget who was sitting on the stool next to you turned and slapped the hell outta you, what would you do? Push him off the stool, pin him down under the stool, and poke him with a fork.
James, with his infinite wisdom:
1. What do you like best about being a technical architect? The fact that I can design these systems in my head, be able to take a high level view of the playing field, assemble a team, work it out using technical coordination, deliver a finished product, and learn more about the technical universe and actually get paid for it. It’s like working like a technical team, and I think that really excites me.
2. What would you like to be doing in 5 or 10 years from now? Doing more of the same, just on a part time basis, and be traveling a little more.
3. Are you and your laptop inseparable? Depends on what you mean by inseparable. They break, I don’t. Perhaps I should get one that has a concrete barrier around it and doesn’t break to the touch.
And Anitra asked:
1. If you could have any talent {besides being a better driver and not breaking laptops :)}, what would it be? Being a music producer. As much music as I purchase, I’d love to be behind the scenes.
2. Matter of fact, how many laptops HAVE you had in the last 5 years? 5. One for each year. *winces*
3. In 25 words or less, what’s your philosophy on life? Live life to the fullest, and absorb yourself into the environment around you.
Al-Boogie inquires:
1. what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? That’s a hard one. Back when I was 25, I acted like I was king of the castle in one week. I hit three cities, met up with multiple people, didn’t sleep more than 3 hours a night, and caused ultimate madness with everyone I met. I did make it home and back to my job, but for some reason I was known as a dirty dawg for many years after that.
2. nas or jay-z? Nas. For some reason, I keep hearing that Jay-Z is one of the most arrogant rappers out there. Plus, Nas has Kelis. How he managed to get her, I have no clue.
3. lights on or off? On. I won’t lie. I like it that way.

    KB all late to the party; showing up after the food is gone talkin’ bout he hungry.
    personally, i think nas is a trade up from pharrel, kelis’ ex. jigga was pretty alright when he “met” my niece. he was here in a club and she turned to her friends saying something like ‘damn, he looks like jigga. don’t he look like jigga?’ then turning to him and asking, “uh, u jigga?” he laughed. when he got to his table he had her table sent a bottle cris.

    Ok, I’ll ask three, but not those three.
    1. If you had just 24 hours to spend in any city in America (other than where you live) where would that be?
    2. How did you learn about “the birds and the bees?”
    3. What is the most elaborate meal you can prepare all by yourself?

  8. Negrodamus says:

    White people love Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumble look like Malcolm X.
