The Waiting Game.......



You all see that image to the left here? Its an Illinois' Drivers License. (LOL) I want one. I want one right now! But I have to wait, hopefully just a few more days. I have to wait until Will County updates their records to show that my cases from last week are paid and settled. My license expired last year and I couldn't get it renewed because of those unsettled tickets from 6 years ago. Well thats all settled. Thankfully, its just expired and not suspended. But I need to get it renewed by my B-day (5-27) or else I would have to take the written and driving exam again. I still remember the day I went to take my driving test. It was just a few weeks past my 17th birthday. I was extremely nervous because I heard that them DMV people didn't play and would make you come back 2, even 3 times! I did good but I messed up while doing a reverse turn and the instructor was like "What are you doing???" I thought he was going to fail me, but I passed on my first try. I still wish I had that original license. That was back when Illinois still did the laminated paper version with the Abe Lincoln holograph in the middle. They say guys don't smile on their license to try to look tough, well eff that! I had the kool-aid grin going back in 96 and you can bet when I get it renewed this time I'll be cheesin' from ear to ear as well.

Oh the play? It went well. It would have been nicer if more people came, but oh well, I wasn't a main character. Chappelle # 1 was supposed to come, but "was in church all day and was so tired that she needed to get some rest". Was I mad or disappointed she didn't come? Naw, not really, maybe a smidge. But she ain't gotta know that. I'll let her think I'm mad for a few days so she can think of some way to make it up (LOL). People tell me I did a nice job, I would like to see the tape to concur. The Co-director has her own play in about a month, and I'm the understudy for the main character. Is that wrong of me to hope that one of these main characters get sick or fall off of the face of the earth so I can come in and take over? This play is about this guy who thinks he's a playa and comes up with a fool proof way of getting what he want out of females and avoids any kind of emotional bind. But his life takes a turn when his previous girlfriend comes back into his life with a surprise. The character that I'm an understudy for is a guy named Jason, who is an educated black man but is getting played for a fool by his gold-digging girlfriend. There's one guy who dating an older chick, and another who has a girlfriend but also has an overbearing mother that will not stay out of his life. I would love to be any of these 4 guys, and although there is some pay I would do it for free because I enjoy it.

Oh sorry, that was just a random thought.

Yo, for the record I smile on just about every pic I take. 'Cuz it's the only time a muthafucka will see it. In real life, I'm not a "smiler".

One day, if I ever blog again, I'll tell you about my "team expansion".

I'm not out, I'll be back soon. I just had a wake-up call this weekend.

I met this HORRIBLE writer at a book signing in Detroit. She was out there gettin' her hustle on. I realized I haven't written one meaningful thing in months.

I want to see if blogging is sapping my will to write seriously. If I don't write this week, I can't blame the blog.

I never thought for a second that the random chick I met would be writing a play about me. I need to start keeping my mouth shut.

Ain't nothing wrong with charity. Hell I met some of my "friends with benefits" through very charitable organizations. The A.N.N.S.B.H.C.A.M.F.A.T.I. is my favorite. In its long version it means "A Nukka Needs Some Before He Chokes A Mutha Fukka And Takes It".

I was really bad at telling people about the play. I only told a handful of people, and that was last minute. I didn't even tell my mom until the day of. Bad. But the next one I'm with a prominent role, I'm telling e'ybody I know.

KZ
Aiight man I understand. For the record, I always enjoy your rants and musings.

Venom
LOL. which one are you, the playa dude?...As far as the charity, if I get hooked up with some grade A specimen then hey, I'm down. But I aint quite reached the A.N.N.S.B.H.C.A.M.F.A.T.I. point yet. Give me a month though.
