Blank, empty, and devoid

Hey all. It's been a week since my last post; and a little longer since my last meaningful post. I've just been incredibly swamped lately. But fortunately, I was able to do a little unwinding for the Thanksgiving break. I gave myself some "me time" and spent a couple of days in DC (sorry to invade your turf with calling first Mari). I had been there once before; but the visit was pretty brief. This time around however, I had the opportuntity to do a little bit more while I was there. Hooking up with an old college friend, seeing the monuments, going to a couple of museums, visiting the federal buildings, touring the downtown area. Overall, I'd say that I had a good time; odd for a person who hates politics. Eh, Greeny?

At any rate, the semester is winding down and I'm at the home stretch. My thesis proposal is due in two weeks and will likely steal most of my time. But if I have any random and spontaneous thoughts to share -- rest assured -- I'll let you in on them. Until then, stay blessed and stay safe!

Hey Andre!

Thanks again for those directions to the airport! James had to take his son and the person who was supposed to ride with him was in a very deep sleep. Andre saves the day!

Glad to see that you got a chance to get away! Gotta catch you up on what happened to me this weekend. You know that it was hilarious!

Andre,

We missed you this year. Don't let Robin influence you into being a "family avoiding" "holiday hating" intravert. You can make it up to me for Christmas. I promise there will be no presents, and I'll put away my James Brown Christmas cd. Just lots of food and I'll buy you a ticket to Dreamgirls.

okay, just one James Brown song! "Santa Claus, go straight to the ghetto" :)

Love you!

Big sis

@ Greeny: Hey my queen. "Me time" is a rare commodity these days so when it comes, I'm grabbing it.

As much as I love to hear you beg for me to go politicing (it's curiously arousing); the only thing being in DC has taught me is that corruption comes in a beauty and aesthetic package. It's something from which I need to stay COMPLETELY away! :)

Sorry that you've been bogged down lately. 'Tis the season, I guess. Given how you've been busy, I'm not pressing you for emails or in-depth responses. A simple 'hello' makes my day. Besides, how do you plan to make all those succulent dishes when you're goofin' around on a computer (and, trust me when I say, your menu sounds deeee-lish!)?!

@ Jos: No prob. To coin a phrase I heard somewhere: "I'm never lost because everybody's always telling me where to go."

*crickets chirping*

Never mind.

@ Kim: Uh...what?

Anyway, I'm going to New York for Christmas so I might miss you again. I guess it depends on how long you'll be here. But, I'll be sure to hit you before then.

Hmmm. Andre being empty-headed. What else is new?

Burrrrn!

Isn't DC nice?!?!?!

I like it here. I wouldn't want to live here forever, but a few years wouldn't kill me :)

PS- Sorry about Michigan but GO GATORS!!!

Andre said...

J, you suck.

@ Mari: I had a blast in DC. I agree that it's probably not a place where I'd wanna settle, but I'd visit as often as I could.
