Callin Out The Texas Readers!

I think I have three Texas followers? I think? Anyway, just wanted to let you know I was representin' TEXAS today with my new Hard Rock Cafe-San Antonio t-shirt, thanks to my aunt who went on a trip and sent it to me. It's super cute, (pink with some gold bling) and fits perfectly and I got a lot of compliments on it today, so thanks Aunt Marcy!! :) I figured my Texas peeps would appreciate the news :)
Other than the fab shirt, I did not have a fabulous day. I should have known it would start badly when I went to one of my fav running blogs and saw that she was answering a question from a certain reader. I scrolled down, read the blog, was reading the comments, found the comment from said featured reader... and almost choked on my oatmeal. The girl gave her email, which was a standard first name, last name, @-somewhere format, and lo and behold, it was from a girl that I have disliked almost my entire life. Yes, somehow in my hometown of about 3 people, this girl that I thought I was rid of forever shows up on a blog. What the crap?? I only know two people IRL who blog. She doesn't appear to have a blog, but of all the running blogs in all the world, she shows up on one that I read. Go Away. For the love, just please re-disappear. Yes, I know it sounds petty that I have held a grudge since 3rd grade, and maybe you don't understand, but let me tell you it wasn't just one thing. This girl has done repeated things to reaffirm my feelings towards her. She is a pathological liar for one thing, and lying is one of the most unattractive qualities a person can have, in my opinion. Anyway, I am going to let this go. Suffice to say, this set the tone for the rest of the day.. long day at work, fight with my boss that forced me to see him in a different light, stressed to the MAX, wanted to go for a run but didn't make it because I fell asleep, stupid me, and now I am wide awake and probably won't get to bed for forever. I am going to blame the girl. She started it all. She came back into my life, and it's been downhill ever since. (Except for the shirt. I love the shirt. I am choosing not to blame my bad day on Texas.)

First of all, yay for the Texas shout out! I'm nowhere near San Antonio, but I still have nothing but love for my state. Glad you got a little southern love going on. :)

Second, I totally know what it's like to have a pain in the arse like that girl hanging around. They are so irritating and just when you think you're rid of them for good, they pop back up and remind you why you can't stand them in the first place. Life is way too short for drama...but sometimes I just want to snap! Stay your course, pretty lady. It'll all come full circle.

You shouldn't blame your bad day on Texas! Texas rocks. Well, aside from the part where our governor is a bit of a moron and our educational system is in the crapper. And we have the highest percentage of repeat teen pregnancies in the country and a whole slew of kids without health insurance. Okay, so most of the people in Texas rock but we have a few issues!!

I've hated a girl since 4th grade cause she told me the boy I loved when I was 10 didn't love me back and that he didn't like girls like me. She told me that for two years and tried to make me not like him cause he did bad things sometimes, but that only made me love him more. I still hate her to this day. So, yeah, I get ya on that whole hating her thing. Totally.

Natalie- I didn't know you were from Texas! So that makes 4 Texas followers that I know of. Excellent :) And I'm glad not everyone thinks I am being petty. She is ALL OVER that blog now and it sucks because I really like it. Ugh. Where did she come from??

Candance- I just knew you would appreciate this post :) Glad to see there is a whole community of grudge-holders out here! I will have to tell my mother, see, I'm not the only one!

WhisperingWriter- Did you tell them I was reppin for their little town? :)

Let us know and we'll take care of that girl because remember: Don't Mess With Texas (or girls who wear Texas shirts) I've been needing to meet up with Michelle and Candance for a while now. We could totally do a road trip and take care of her. Seriously - we could.
