This kind of social dynamic quiz things make me edgey. So much can learned if you take enough of them. Cute though. I didn't know you went to Howard! I grew up just block from Howard off North Capital just on the other side of the resevoir and could see the clock tower everyday and hear the band when they practiced! Small world!

@ Michel: Funny...they make me edgy too! If I'm honest, *whispering* these weren't all the questions...LOL. Ya gotta keep SOME things to yourself!

Yes...it is a VERY small world. I went to Howard from '94-'98...the ABSOLUTE best four years of my life!!! And...at the same time I fell in love with the city...that's why I'm back in the area :) You would be SHOCKED at how much DC has changed...is your family still here?

So nice to hear from you...I was wondering where you went! Are you still in Finland?

Yes, Sunshine... you do need to smile! And I don't want you to cry inside daily. That one hurt my heart :( I know you're going through a lot and I cannot necessarily relate to your pain, but I know that you know I'm ALWAYS here for you and I LOVE YOU!! So yes, you are truly loved... by MANY actually. But the true love that you are looking for will come to you when God believes you are ready to receive it, know it and appreciate it. It will be better than anything you've ever experienced! :)

Don't make me have to come to MD and straighten you out... you know I don't F with Yones! (lmao)

Hey Darbs! You know I almost fell out on the floor when you said Savannah! OMG! My husband and I (well, maybe more me) were just talking about trying to have a little girl. You know that's going to be her middle name right... LOL! I love that name.. At any rate, this was a really interesting list, but I hope you do start to feel better girlie! ::HUGS::

 
At 8:40 AM, Blogger Darbs said...

@ Neq: Leave it to you to make me cry AGAIN!!! And then LMAO (Yones really messed you up girl...LOL). Simply stated...I love you and thank God for you!

@ MzNewAgenda: Thanks!

@ Sarccastik: Weeelll...actually I only lived with three of them (so there were four girls in the house...five including my Mom). My other sister I have never met...VERY long story. And yes...there were many fights...but there was a lot more love. Most times is was like having a slumber party every day of the week!

@ Nikki: When I get my own crib and if you are ever up this way...you have an open invitation!

@ Soulfull: HEY YOU!!!! So good to hear from you and to know you are doing well! So you're thinking about trying for a little Soulfull? That's wonderful...I'll be praying for you guys. And I don't know what it is about that name, but for the past 6 months or so I have really been feelin' it...we'll see what happens when it's time for me to have my own...LOL.

how was "must love dogs"? i think i want to see that

and how can you not like eclairs? the custard is great!!

 
At 7:53 AM, Anonymous Michel said...

Yep Darbs: Mom is still in the same house!And I'm still in Finland till the end of August at which time I'll be moving back to the States...San Francisco...but a visit to DC and family us in order first. I worked a couple of years on load to the Washington Post so nothing about DC surprises me!

 
At 8:26 AM, Blogger Darbs said...

@ TTD: "Must Love Dogs" was really cute so you'll definitely have to check it out. And nope...can't do the eclairs...and it's not even just the custard...I don't like the taste of the pastry...and I'm a pastry lovin' kinda girl.

@ Michel: Well...you'll definitely have to let me know if/when you come back to visit!

I came by yesterday but didn't read all cause I had to give it my undivided attention. I'm back!!
The very first time I ever came here your post got me...it was the one bout seeing someone from your past and being embarrased about where you are now. That post stayed with me cause your writing is so honest.
The way you broke down last time you cried....gurl!!! outside and inside.
I'm not making sense but basically wanted to tell you that we've never met but I feel connected to you and feel like in your presence I can be myself and say anything!!!

@ Mwabi: It is definitely crazy how well you've gotten to know me. THIS SONG IS THE HOTNESS!!! Thank you for sending it my way...I'm putting that in heavy rotation :) Your post, this song, the video...all of it brought a tear to my eye this morning. It's not just anyone who can bring me to tears (especially the cathartic kind). That's why I am convinced that our spirits/souls are kindred.......thank you!

 
At 9:56 AM, Blogger LUVIN ME said...

AWWWW. Smile! I know it's easier said than done but you can do it!

I know there has to be at least one thing or one person that has the ability to bring a small to your face with just a thought...
