5 years!

Today makes 5 years of me being a permanent employee for the state of NC! Lawd have mercy! If you count my time as a temp here I've been here for 5 years and 11 months! I need to look over my benefits stuff cuz some cool stuff is supposed to happen at the 5 year mark. Hmmmmmm. I gotta get outta here! LOL

Now to the picture. I took this pic yesterday of my favorite sneakers after buying 2 new pair at the *shiver* mall. I did really good money wise cuz I got 2 pair of sneaks, a pair of shoes for Pooka, 19 pairs of earrings (they came in multiple packs), and dinner for 2 for only 60 bucks! That was great! I am sooooooooo for a good deal. One of my sneakers were not on sale and I debated buying them for a minute. They were just too cute not to get and I sure couldn't wear my favorites anymore! LOL!

Pooka has asked me repeatedly for the past 3 weeks to take her to the monster truck show coming to town this weekend and about Ruby Tuesdays. I finally asked her last night on the way home from the mall what was it she wanted from Ruby Tuesdays so bad. She didn't know. Darn advertisements! She is convinced she needs to eat at Ruby Tuesdays tho'! LOL The monster truck thing is cool and part of me wanted to go to. The only issue is I waited so long to look into it the only seats left kinda suck! :-(

You finding deals like that? Do you take requests? Let's see what you can find in a size 13. Thanks. :oD

That sneaker looked like it was trying to eat your hand or something.

Boo @ waiting too long to take her to the monster truck show. Gravedigger, Bigfoot, and Predator will be upset with you. I hope they don't go after the Devil's Van to retaliate.

[In granny voice] Take sweet little Pooka to the Ruby Tuesday. [/granny voice] Their mocha mudslides are tres delish. I'm talking smack your mama upside the head like you honked your horn and she ran up to your window $20 short good. My pimp hand is twitching just thinking about it. I'm sure she'll find something to eat when you take her.

Ladynay said...

I have a plastic bag, one size fits most, that should do wonders for you! LOL

I will try the mocha mudslide whenever I get around to taking her. Thanks for the recomendation!

Thoughts of a Southern gal said...

I'm glad you bought some new shoes b/c your favorites are d-o-n-e!

Ladynay said...

LOL, what made it funny was I wore them yesterday! I knew they were reaching the end of the road, but when I saw that opening I had to act ASAP! I only had/have one pair of all white sneaks! LOL

Freaky Deaky said...

Dear Ladynay,

You are a mean, horrible person. A plastic bag alone, probably a used one at that is not proper footwear for someone of my blog stature. Even homeless people use newspaper, belly lint, pigeon feathers, and rat fur beneath the plastic bags (inside of torn up shoes, I may add) to keep their feet warm.

Please reconsider and get me some shoes in a size 13. While I generally believe Nike shoes are hideously ugly and the people who blindly wear them are sheep I'd even be willing to allow you to buy me the new Air Jordans.



Freaky Deaky

PS: Chop chop!

Ladynay said...

Dear Freaky,

A mean, horrible person would not even consider giving you a bag to keep you feet warm so reconsider your opinion and be thankful. LOL

Shame on you for not liking Nike's. They wear good (not like New Balance) and some of the styles are cute. Now in order for me to make such a purchase I would need to use your face as a...well nevermind.



Freaky Deaky said...

Dear Ladynay,

I've thoughtfully reconsidered as you requested and still maintain that you're a mean, horrible person. I bet the bag has thumbtacks in it or smells like hot, rancid garbage. :o(

I hope they do wear well because they're ugly as sin. Kind of like when the first thing my boy tells me about a chick is that she has a great personality instead of what a nice booty she's working with.

Hey I'm a manhoe so I have no problem putting in a little work to get those shoes. I'll make so much more when I sell them on Ebay to some ugly shoe loving fool. *cough* Sheep! *cough* BAAAAAAAA! Did I say that out loud? Anyway, please e-mail me for my price list. I have a face sitting special you may be interested in. Offer ends soon.

With deepest regards,


Freaky Deaky

PS: You so nasty! LOL

Ladynay said...

Mr. Deaky:

If the special is not better than buy one sit get one free I am not interested! *wink*

I am not telling you what is in the plastic bag. It may be wet and it may have a smell *eyes wandering*

Yours truly,


P.S. I learn from the best a.k.a you. ROFL!

kasandra said...

Dang girl where'd you get a deal like that from? That's a steal!!! That shoe did look like it was trying to eat your hand..LOL!!! Ruby Tuesday's is good. I went there once and I enjoyed it. Their salad bar was excellent. I gotta try that mudslide that Freaky mentioned, sounds delicious!!!

PhD 2 B said...

Girl those shoes...I can't help but laugh.

Darius T. Williams said...

Congrats on the job - I know how these types of accomplishments feel!

Ladynay said...

Kassandra, various cheap places at the mall. I am not one of those who has to have name brand everything. Cute is cute.

Nic, Girlllll those shoes had it! LOL

Darius, longevity looks good *wink*

Erica C. said...

Dang! I just got a raise for my 5 years as a state employee too! 5 years is too damn long to put up with what I have to put up with!!

The Goddess said...

You CLEANED up!!!! I need some new sneakers too. That pic is HILARIOUS. Girl you were LONG over due. Lmao.

That's cute pooka want's to go to the monster truck show. I don't really hear many kids talk about that kind of stuff. That would be a great little Momma/Baby date Monster truck show and Ruby Tuesdays. Sounds like a winner to me.

Ladynay said...

Erica, let the church say amen!

Goddess, Pooka will have to wait for the next Monster Jam but she might have Ruby Tuesday's tonight :-)

Yeah, I wore them till I realized I couldn't wear them anymore. LOL

M-Dubb said...

Congrats on five years! I don't know whether I'll ever get to that point, the way my industry is going... lol

Yeah, about you wearing a shoe "to the ground..."

Ladynay said...

You move around too much to be at one place for 5 years! LOL

Yeah, go head an keep the peanut gallery in yah head!

blkbutterfly said...

lol @ that shoe. i know how you feel though. i'm not like that w/ shoes, but i am that way w/ favorite clothes.

monster truck show? hmmm... it does sound kinda cool.

as for Ruby Tuesday's, tell Pooka it's nothing special. i'm sure you can prepare better food at home. lol... ok, let me stop hating on RT. i just never got the hype.

Ladynay said...

Don't start me on clothes! LOL

We'll probably go so see the truck show the next go around.

I took her on Friday. Her RT's craving has been filled. I never saw the hype in the restaurant either. Still don't.

spchrist said...

How long have you had those shoes?

WrkNProgress said...

Girl you needed Sneaks!!! lol

Ohhhh you did good, I love shopping best thing for the blues.

nikki said...

are those the marbury shoes? they look good.

monster truck show? for real? i've never been to one of those, probably cuz i was afraid i'd be the only black person in the stands...

Ladynay said...

Sherlon, too long :-)

WNP, you ain't lying. I don't shop my blues away, I eat it away! LOL

Nikki, sad thing is I can't tell you what type of shoes they were! :-(

We would have been one of the very few naturally tanned folks in there for sure if we went! LOL

deepnthought said...

you would be surprised at how many of us actually go to the monster truck rally. I loved them as a child. I still like them now. My brother and I would take the kids every yea up until I moved here.

I am so hard on shoes. Sneakers are always my casualty. So, I will not comment on the death of the shoe in your picture.

Yayyyy pooka got her ruby tuesday fix. I used to like their turkey burgers with avocado on them. I dont really care for RT anymore.

way to go on five years for the state. thats cool.
