I just heard that he died today. This is probably one of my favorites of his. It's probably one of the first songs I heard on local radio when I first moved to New York back in 1984, and then seeing the video on BET. It's also in one of my favorite 80s movies, "Breakin'".

Earlier this year, I noticed that my weight had gone up quite a bit and about two-three months ago (or thereabouts), I decided to weight myself. I wasn't surprised that I had topped out at 250 (I'm not embarassed to admit this). I put it out of my mind, wasn't too concerned. But over the past few weeks, I've noticed that my pants had been feeling a bit loose and starting to fall down. So I decided to drag out the scale and weighted myself yesterday. I don't know how I did it because I live off pizza rolls and soda when I'm at work, but I'm down 20 pounds, coming in at 232 (I weighted myself just now). I feel good about it, even though I haven't a clue how I'm doing it. I'm not sick, all my current tests are normal. I'm just going to chalk it up to the fact that I'm so busy at work, that I pretty much just get a lunch break during my 8-hour shift. I eat a few small snacks in between so I don't get light-headed (Break me off a piece of that KitKat Bar!) and I'm constantly moving around helping customers and teammates.
Hey...whatever works, I got noooooooooooo complaints. :)

I found myself humming "America the Beautiful" this morning and choking up with tears as I took my moment of silence.

I remember where I was on this day. I was working at Ames, where at the time, I was the Lead Merchandiser for the Ladies Intimate Apparel and Sleepwear Department. It was kitty-corner with the Electronics department and all the TVs there were set to the news channels. I remember hearing the disturbing news that a plane had hit one of the towers as I was straigtening a rack of bras close by. The lady who was working in that department (whom I work with at my current job) that day and I were both in shock as we watched what was going on in our own homestate. As the news spread, more of our co-workers began to abandon their own jobs to watch with us, and even a few customers came as well. It was a horrible, tragic and deeply disturbing.
I may forget what I was doing a year ago, but this is something that will stick in my mind until the day I die. <3

So I didn't want to say anything earlier because honestly, thinking about it still freaks me out...but what the hell.

I'm laying in bed last night, around midnight, reading a book and listening to the TV. My bedroom door is completely closed, my back is to both the door and the TV.

All of a sudden, I got this really oppressive feeling like I was being watched and my mattress moved as if someone was kneeling on it. I froze for about half a minute and waited. But that feeling of being watched would not go away for quite some time. I finally sucked it up and turned my head...no one there. My bedroom door is still closed and I would hear it if it opened because the wood is warped from the heat and the jamb and the side of the door rub against each other. That being watched feeling went away after about 3 minutes.

But it took me a long time to get to sleep after that.

I've been working on a Severus-adopts-Harry AU story called "Two Little Blackbirds", trying to get back into writing again. I'm partway through the first chapter now, but I don't want to start posting it until I have at least 4 or 5 chapters done. I kind of missed writing. I keep starting projects, hate where they're going and put them away for a while. So we will see how it goes.

My son asked me to get a tattoo with him today for his 20th birthday. I love it.
