To Say The Name…

Say her name and be prepared, for saying her name may bring out an inner me not known to most.  For say the name to others may do the same.  Say the name and let the inspiration spread.  We do not hold back.  We are united as one, and one as all.  To question is to judge,  to judge is wrong.  For we are the mons†er nation and their might be more of us than you.  To mention weird is to humiliate.  For humiliation there is her.  For she is the one to humiliate, not I.  That is her defined purpose.  To put a mirror in front of hateful comments.  To take the blame off us and onto one who is strong enough.  For we are all born this way.  Say the name is to stir controversy, for what, we do not know.  Be yourself.   We all have have a little mons†er in us, its up to you to find it.  To say the name to google and google might tell you hermaphrodite.  To say your name to google and google might say insecure.  To say the name three years ago and no one would know.  Say the name now and no one knows what to expect.  To say the name to me or a friend of another and you might not want what you get.  For she is Lady GaGa and we are a free bitch.

Not Yet Shipped

On September 7th I was writhing a four page paper for my English class. About half way through the paper my two year old HP laptop gave me an error message saying “Windows has encountered an error and will begin to shut down in one minute.” I found myself frantically looking for a flash drive to save my work. I was lucky enough to have saved the paper before the computer went black. I tried to turn the computer back on to see what would happen. The screen went black again. I decided that it was just time for a Mac. I got on my friend’s computer and went to Apple.com to start my search for the right MacBook. I found it in no time. A 15.4” high resolution sleek MacBook Pro. It said “Only $1,999” out next to it. All I could think was “only?”. I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. I did not know what to tell my mom. She pays for my college and if I told her that I dropped two grand on a laptop, she might get a little upset. The next day she came up from Greenville South Carolina to visit me. I had to tell her. It was better to tell her now than for her to see me on it one day. As we sat down for SubWay it came out. “Mom, I bought a MacBook… Pro.” To my surprise she was not mad at all. I had to find out why. After a bit of prying information out of her she simply says, “I was going to get you that for Christmas.” My heart dropped. I just spent $2,000 on a laptop that I could have waited two months and got it for free. She told me I can keep it but she is not pay for it. I will have to wait till Christmas day for it if she buys it. I quickly get on my iPhone and go to Apple.com to view my order status. In big black letters it says “Not Yet Shipped.” I quickly hit the cancel order button and $2,000 went back into my Bank of America account just like that. I was so relieved. I love being spoiled.

iPhone 4

On June 24th 2010 I found myself waking up at 1AM in the morning to stand inline for a brand new iPhone 4.  Little did I know that all of Charlotte would also be doing the same.  I arrived at South Park Mall at about 2AM to find the police standing outside not letting people stand outside the mall for loitering reasons.   I was pissed off.  I then went on the back side of the mall where no cops were and parked my car.  Come 4AM I decided to see the progress.  As I drove under the mall to the underground parking lot, I found cars frantically circling the entrance to the mall.  The cops were still standing grad.  I went back out of the parking lot and up the ramp to the spot where everyone was waiting above ground where the police could not see us.  At some point in the morning we started inching closer to the mall entrance.  The police were still telling us to get back and come back at 5AM ( At this point that was nearly 10 minuets away).  Out of nowhere people started to run at the mall entrance.  I was a little frightening as I though a riot was about to break out.   The police accepted their defeat and let us stand in line until the Apple employees came out to greet all of us and told us that every single one of us was going to get an iPhone.  My greatest fear of the night was over. I was guaranteed an iPhone.   Sure enough, come 6PM that long day, I got my iPhone 4.
