Yawn!

Look. When Supa wakes up and quickly calculates it'll be approximately 17 more hours until she can get her fabulous hustlin' ass back in bed - a sista's tired! Gah. I found myself severely annoyed yesterday when co-workers kept coming into my office and interrupting my quality writing time with C.S.S. projects and other nonsense....yeah, I'm on the clock, but fuck all that! Supa recalls that she specifically requested set hours for "inquires and feedback" during the day. Otherwise folks'll be all up in your grill and hounding you 24/7. Everybody - get the fuck out! Can't you see I'm trying to do something totally unrelated to my job duties? Sheesh.

See? Never give a moody black girl a juicy promotion. Shit goes all to her head...

On to Supa's self-accountability chart:

Reasons why Supa was late to work today:

1) General snooze alarm abuse.

2) Friend called at 6:30 am saying she's coming over early to help pick out paint colors for living room (yes I decided to paint now, it'll never end).

3) Spent 45 minutes spatting over "warm" vs. "cool" color selections, playing tug-o-war with color chart paint wheel, ooh and aahing and walking through the rest of the house with other decorating ideas, planning the next house party, invite list, menu, etc.

4) Employing various tactics trying to wrestle an old piece of pizza from Pooch's mouth (Ruff Ryder #1 left it on the floor in his room. Just nasty.)

5) Indecisive wardrobe selection process.

6) Riding around on "E", forced to stop and get petrol.

7) Ridiculous muthafucking Los Angeles traffic.

I'm sleepy.

Happy Wednesday! Going to the Grammys or any after-parties, Miss Ahmad?

Late Afternoon Update:

Unh hunh, time for this chick to bounce. I'm "under pressure" as David Bowie would say.....I've got too many projects going on, and I'm having issues with this nasty temper/smart-ass mouth of mine....BUT, on a more positive note, I'm quite proud of myself for not going straight 'hood today at the C.S.S. (Corporate Slave Ship, for all you newcomers...)

Example # 1:

Supa's whiny co-worker: Can we talk about something?

Supa's mental response: The fuck you wanna talk about now??????
Supa's verbal response: Sure, gimme a second, I'll be right with you.


Example #2:

Supa's nosy co-worker: Going home already?

Supa's mental response: What you want me to do, bitch, spend the night?????
Supa's verbal response: Yep, I'm off early. Didn't take a lunch today...


'Bout to go home, fix a big fat martini, chill out and watch the Grammy's...I'm giving myself the night off!!!!!

Supa, out!

I'm so mad...my assistant took the day off and now I have to answers phones...DAMMIT!!!! HAHAHAHA...It's hard doing MY thang when I've got to do someone ELSE'S thang!!

Miss Ahmad said...

Girl...Grammy after parties, sounds social to me, and I've been hibernating working on this book! I should get out and shake my thang with my little model boy...throw on the light weight hoochie fit, just for the hell of it:-) we'll see!

Supa said...

lmao @ Tam - That shit irks, don't it?!

Miss Ahmad - I feel ya! Glad to hear you're digging in on your book project. Yay! But I know, it can wreak havoc on your social life. I turned down an after party invite cause I've just got to make my writing deadline next week. Even though...the real reason is CLOSER to the fact that I'm taking down my plaits and can't be mobbing up in In Style's after party lookin' like a bootleg E. Badu.....

Details honey, if you get out there! lol

African girl, American world said...

requested set hours for inquiries or whatever you said....gurl stop! I'm laughing way too hard.

You, 6:30 am...I'm on the wrong blog! LOL let me hit the back button.

African girl, American world said...

And gurl I think the gurl you liked on myspace was Ndambi and she'll be performing over there Friday. Want details?

Eww!

Supa: I don't like your co-workers. I'm not trying to be funny, but what color were they?

Black people tend to be nosey about different stuff than white folks. . .

Black folks are just nosey, and they may say something like "Girl, you know so and so don't be coming in until such and such time, she off the hook". But they will be saying it just amongst themselves, as kind of an inside joke. . .

"Other" will prolly say hi real loud when you get in the door, trying to throw you under the bus, or two walk in your supervisor's office saying "Hi, is everything okay with Supa?, I noticed her schedule lately, like Monday she was in at 9:01 and thirty seconds, and Tuesday, she got here at 9:46 and seventeen seconds. Is she okay?"

No offense to the lighter persuasion, I'm just sayin.

Just axin. . .

Supa said...

P: I don't even know why you had to ax, cuz you know the above referenced co-workers are melanin deficient...

lol @ you not liking my co-workers! ha ha ha. Ew is right! :) But I gots them under control.... :)

Takeitoutside said...

lol@ the co-worker rant. It's a shame you can't say what you reeeally wanna say. You'd have a case of "When keepin' it real goes wrong" on your hands..

The Sarccastik Variable Why said...

shyt you good..i wouldn't volunteered (is that right) the information about didn't take lunch...Yep, i'm gone...see you tomorrow....dare that mofo to say something....yeah, they are nosey....

Cocoa Girl said...

love that dual speak on the job! it's absolutely necessary. unless, that is, you have one of those slave masters, ahem, bosses who feels they know what you're thinking, too. which, by the way, is damned to be something "bad."

screw 'em all, i say.

Dee said...

I love your tat on your foot!!!!

I call my place of employment the "plantation" most of my friends/co-workers have a problem with it!!!! I don't care!!! LOL
