As I Cee It

Archive for January 2013

Due to the departure of Peyton Manning from the Colts*, I found myself without a favorite team last season (2011). I figured I might as well be a fan of the home team until such a time that I was able to really connect with a club. Here it stands at the end of the 2012 season, and I’m still rooting for the home team.** With my cheering them on, the Ravens are going to the Super Bowl! And my city is lit up purple at night. It’s a beautiful thing to see, I tell ya. Even better is that a good friend of mine kept betting against them in the playoffs. He told me that Peyton Manning and his new team were gonna knock them out (the Ravens won in an exciting, albeit LONG, double overtime game). He texted me on the day before the AFC Championshiop game: “Tom Brady is going to speak at Ray’s retirement party tomorrow. How nice.” (The Ravens defense shut out the Patriots in the second half.)

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
