Where Is the (Liquid) Love?

I've had an event block of time since I last had the opportunity to sit in front of a computer and outline my daily happenings.

So on Cinco de Mayo the Nemesis and I did some drinking, although I didn't do that much because I went all day without eating. Prior to that, I had a few drinks at Chili's.

I burned the fuck out of my fingers with a very bad attempt at drunk smoking. Yeah. AND I had to do it twice, because I have blisters on both hands. One second-degree burn isn't enough for me, apparently.

Then sorority formal happened the next day. I went with Adam. It was awkward. I cried, and that's no fun for me. It's too weird being around him right now.

At the after party at my place, we broke out the Liquid Love again. Yes. Use your imagination - it probably happened.

Saturday was some graduation party fun. After fighting to get out of bed for work (I cannot express how badly I wanted to just stay in bed all day), I went to Cox's graduation party. It was like a Sidelines reunion, with some Hvegas people thrown in. I had to leave early because I had to work at 7:45 a.m., but it was tons of fun. ERICA and Meggers also graduated. Awesome.

Today I did some drive-thru work (I love being a barista at work) with the Intimidator. Then I took a nap and bummed around, doing laundry and talking online to JR. I was going to go home for Mother's Day, but my dad is really sick, so we had to postpone our dinner plans.

The song of the day: "Where Is the Love" by the Black Eyed Peas. It's stuck in my head. Hopefully, this will get it stuck in your head, too.

What's wrong with the world mama?
People living like aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And if you hatin you're bound to get irate
Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
You gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y'all

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the love2x)

It just ain't the same all ways have changed
New days are strange is the world the insane?
If love and peace so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations dropping bombs
Chemical gases filling lungs of little ones
With ongoing suffering
As the youth die young
So ask yourself is the loving really strong?
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
With this world that we living in
People keep on giving in
Makin wrong decisions
Only visions of them livin and
Not respecting each other
Deny thy brother
The wars' going on but the reasons' undercover
The truth is kept secret
Swept under the rug
If you never know truth
Then you never know love
Where's the love y'all?(I don't know)
Where's the truth y'all?(I don't know)
Where's the love y'all?

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the lovex2)

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm getting older y'all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love, we're spreading anomosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling down
It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feeling under
I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(fade)

I'm sorry about how the formal went... at least you seem to be doing better now.

And damn you, now I need to download that song. Don't you see what you do to me, Wendy? Don't you see?

Your MOM told me to tell you that she LOVED the LIQUID, too... :)

Why did you have to go and get that stuck in my head, you Wnedy, you?! *shakes fist*

Notice that both comments were, of course, after midnight... ;)

Yes, even MORE proof that my blog is the cure for the insomniac.
