Happy New Year!

Happy New Year y'alls. What's the absolute last day of January that you can say that anyway?

Yea I took another hiatus. I was off work and battling a cold for pretty much my entire two-and-a-half week vacay. But this one was way shorter than the rest right?!? But enough excuses and on to the post!

I’m so lazy y’all. I had started this great post about the 2009 Random Negroes and it was going to be like ‘rate your favorite’ Random Negro type thing. So didn’t happen. BUT since I believe in better late than never here are the beginnings of what I was going to post.

Random Negro Wrapup. I wanted to do one of these last year, but y’all know I take irregularly scheduled hiatuses.

Anyway, take a stroll down memory lane with me as I recap some of 2009’s most memorable Random Negros.

NFL. We started off the year right, or so I thought. Actually it was all kinds of wrong. It was New Years Eve. He had to escort me from the club’s drunk tank. Somehow I recovered from that and we kept in touch for a while. But when he came back to DC (He lived in NY at the time) for Inauguration festivities things we less than stellar. Then to make things worse he invited me up to NY in April for his birthday weekend, but then uninvited me on the sly, by not giving me the details. Actually I’m still waiting for the call to let me know about the birthday plans. Maybe I should get my local congressman to do something about that USPS service. But judging by the photos on Facebook my invite must have accidentally-on-purposely gone to his ex-gf.

The Bison. Technically he fizzled out before 2009 started, but he contacted me on Facebook in early January, just to see how I was doing. I was very short in my response and didn’t inquire about him, so that was the last I “officially” heard from him. Even though he was gone I couldn’t escape him. Yahoo Personals matched me up with him and He showed up at my old church with his new girlfriend. Talk about awkward.

Fatigues. He was a “gem” I found on I should have known better than to go out with him when the first time he called me he was pretending to be a radio disc jockey telling me I had won a date with him. Anyway. Fatigues was in the military, Army or Air Force. I can’t really remember and don’t really want to for that matter. Anyway things pretty much ended before they started. We didn’t even make it through an entire date. I ended up walking off on him once we got to the lounge we were going to after he announced that he was sick of opening the car door for me.

Curry Chicken. He actually made it to the BF stage. I was excited too. He would have lasted longer if he hadn’t been all scarred and paranoid that I would cheat on him after I complained that we didn’t get to spend enough time together. But hindsight being 20-20 things worked out for the best. If his emotional baggage wasn’t enough (yeah like I’m one to talk) he also came with a lot of family baggage. He lived with his sister and family (husband and two kids). Counting his mama, who was always just a Bolt/Chinatown/Vamoose bus ride away I was constantly on the backburner.

Anyway, those are just a few off top. Let me know who your favorites were. The Random Negroes have been few and far between. (Thank you Jesus!) Not much new going on with me. Still trying to grow hair and lose weight.

Anyway, here’s to hoping that your Twenty-Ten is grand!
