thats whats up

It has been a while since I've posted.. things got a bit hairy at work since my last post. Needless to say I have taken this week off so I now have a lot of time to do what I do best, a whole bunch of nothing. My landlady sent over some contractor to renovate the place so I pretty much have to stay home for the rest of the week so he can do his work.. great way to spend some time off work eh? To keep things short I will just summarize what I've been up to since my last post:

  • crackbook: yup I signed up for facebook and was a junkie like everybody else. The novelty died down pretty quickly though. It's very nice, I found quite a bit of old school friends I thought dropped off the face of the earth.
  • I went to the New Kingston stage of the annual local rally and took exactly one picture.I arrived late, the stage only lasts like 30 minutes and the place was packed with people.. I was lucky I could even see a car. What amazes me is that people will stand on the corner and watch the car race head on at them into the corner at ridiculous speeds and have the time not to crap their pants. I have seen where rallies go wrong and the spectators feel it.
  • I went to Web 3.0 Banana Boy, Alex's, wedding. Congratulations Alex! I want it to be my turn next :p. Need to find a girlfriend first to get that ball rolling. I don't really get suited up often so you know I had to take pics
    I'm not really sure what I was doing in the second pic but the kids seem to be putting up all sorts of finger signs these days so I joined in with my own lol. For those of you who may ask, that's a Trinidadian flag on my wall(better than a plain wall), yes I'm half Trini too.
  • Noodle came over on Saturday for the first time since we broke up. She was hungry so we walked over to Barbican to get something for dinner. On the way back home in the darkness we got held up.. that's Barbican for ya. Anyway the guy crept up behind us with what he would have liked us to believe was a gun and told us to give us our valuables. This was the first time I was being jacked so I stood there a bit stunned trying to figure out if it was a gun, knife or what in his hand. Hearing noodle struggling with him to keep her purse snapped me back to reality and I rushed him. Well I'm still alive so I guess he wasn't packing heat.. he ran off and jumped in a waiting car.
  • The following day I visited my parents for the usual Sunday lunch and my pops said he had something to show me. He brought down a knife sheath he found in my old room and questioned me about it with great concern. My only answer didn't offer him much peace of mind though, "it's just something to remind me of high school" I said. It was a pretty big sheath and the knife that belonged to it was something of this nature with spikes in the knuckles. Looking back now I'm glad my teen years was less eventful.
To answer GC's question I haven't found anybody new yet.. it has just been tv, sleep and work for me. :(

you got held up?!!!
You're half Trini?!!!
You're on facebook?!!
My goodness, this post is full of shockers.

I'm on facebook too. If anyone is out there, listening, don't sign up. They don't call it crackbook for nothing.

Crankyputz said...

we are all on facebook...secretly

Noodle's back? And you got held up...seems like the cosmos are telling you something....

Adrian said...

yup 1/2 trini by blood.. not like most of those other frauds :p

@cranky: noodle was just visiting and I think the cosmos was trying to tell her something since the only thing he got away with was her purse.

Bwoy, I remember my days of walking up to Phang Yees to buy Chinese food we didn't worry about being robbed then....
Bad Karma seems to be following you with Noddle, somehow though i dont think she is quite out of your system yet

So what I got from this post is:

1.Adrian, who is by no means a fraud but who is a recovering addict, used to carry a really big knife, loves to watch racing cars and is truly half Trini by blood went to a wedding, started feeling lonely and started wishing that he would find a girlfriend really soon.

2. Noodle came by Adrian's home for a visit and they went for dinner, got held up and are now thinking about getting married soon...

Facebook is crackbook? Ex-Noodle is cracknoodle? That means U're addicted to both? Nice suit guv'na! "Stay away from all odda jacket. If it can't wear, it can't bear." (Mi uncle says that whenever his pals put on a nice suit.)

So, what did you do with the knife?

I have been to one of those rally things in New Kgn myself, I agree with you, people mad!

Adrian every time you post something about being single i can just sense the ladies getting wet in the undies for you. You should stop teasing them and give one a try for new years, then again in earlier posts, didnt you say you were habitant of many bed rooms or something? Noodles chnaged you that much?

Adrian said...

it's not my fault if anybody gets their hopes up.
