Phone Privileges...


Being the cellular phone junkie that I am, in the sense of using it, not needing the latest one, I can honestly say that I have over 400 phonebook entries in my phone. That said, I hate when someone says, in their most accusatory tone:

"Why you can't call nobody?" (or a variation of such)

Yes, I do call people (when my minutes are free, after 7pm local time, unless you have Sprint Nextel), but if you feel I haven't called you in a while, here's a thought:


I am the worst when it comes to calling people back. I can freely admit that. I am a procrastinator and always have the mindset to return voicemails, but typically when I remember, it's late at night when I know 90% of America is asleep. I put it off until the next day, IF I remember, and the cycle continues.

Even still, most people don't realize that I am not at home laying around in my underwear contemplating my next meal. If you call me and don't get me immediately, that may mean a multitude of things, such as not having a job that allows me to freely run my mouth while performing my job duties, or maybe I am sleep, maybe. That's the purpose of the voicemail. In this day and age of dropped calls, there ARE INDEED times when it can be ringing on your end but not ringing on mine. That's the purpose of the voicemail. Then, there are those inopportune times when I just don't want to answer the phone. That's the purpose of voicemail, to stave those particular instances and let me know, "Hey, I need to call so-and-so back." Given that I DO NOT check my missed call log, voicemail is my indication that someone has called me and ACTUALLY WANTS SOMETHING (wow, maybe that's another reason some people don't get calls back...). My logic is, if you didn't leave a voicemail, you most likely didn't want anything in the first don't get mad at me when I don't call back. I don't want to hear your breathing, or you continually asking me "so what's up?" or anything of the sort.

Let it work to your advantage, not your disadvantage. LOL

Aiight, I'm out. Two fingaz!!

I'm A Perfectionist, and I Can't Help It...

What the dealio...??

I think the title of this blog is quite self-explanatory, but oh well...

I'd like to think that I am a well-educated individual, whose intelligence is not just specific to one genre. I don't know everything, but I have amassed a great deal of general knowledge over the years.

That said, I've noticed that I am probably one of the biggest perfectionists in the world. If I don't like something or may have said or done something wrong, I go way out of my way to make sure it is corrected in a timely fashion.

Those who know me know that I am a text FIEND. I can sit up for hours, texting all of my friends (and yes, I have unlimited text messaging in my plan). However, while I am texting, nine times out of ten, I have to make sure that I spell things correctly and use proper punctuation. Many of my family and friends will spell things wrong and not use proper punctuation to no end, to which I just laugh to myself. Is that mean? I know that texting is for short message purposes, so I don't mind it in the least when someone spells something wrong; so long as I know what they mean. LOL

Even when I am singing, I have the propensity to remember the exact key of the original artist's recording. I have found myself in many an argument with choir directors and musical instructors that their particular key is wrong, and I don't mind not having tact when doing so. I just have this pitch memory that I cannot get rid of, and when I find myself not being in proper pitch, I immediately stop and correct myself. People say that I have perfect pitch and can remember a particular arrangement like no other...that's just how I am, and I get upset when someone tells me that I am singing something wrong.

It's not a habit that I think is as bad as say, weed or alcohol, but just wanted to share that. So, if you see or hear me correcting someone or myself, it's just me working as usual. LOL

Two fingaz!
