IM MOVING ON!!! @ 8:39 AM

So.. Its that time...

Things have fallen in place and its time for me to move on.

It is taking alot for me not to cry as I write this. I have learned so much in the past few years.

I could write so much about "love" and "lose" but ummm no hahahah I would be lying.. You can't say you lost something you never had... and you can't actually love something that does not have the ability to love you back...

What I can say is that I have made some amazing friends. I am old enough to know the difference between friends that are life long and friends that are passing through your life.. I know that I have been a friend that just passed through many peoples lives but I still hope I made and impact.

So Dallas here I come!!!! I hope that eventually some of my friends in Oklahoma will make that move as well!!!!!!!! DONT MAKE ME CALL YOU OUT!!!!

Anyway I love you guys and thanks for reading!!!

I will be updating at the move goes on.

Time for relection @ 2:26 PM

Songs and Seasons always bring back memories..

This time of the year in 2004 I lost a friend which would set off a chain of events that would last almost 2 years.

Early morning in Oct I received a phone call telling me that Airmen Thomson had been in a car accident and I needed to be on standby. Dennis had driven from Mexico Beach Fl to Biloxi MS to visit another Airmen that was going through training. Late at night when he was pulling through an intersection he was T-boned by a drunk driver who ran a red light.

Ive seen death my entire life but nothing that felt so much like it was my fault. Indirectly that is. I was the Airmen Leader I was suppose to know the location of all 12 of my Airmen at ALL times.. I had NO clue he had driven anyplace let alone out of the state...

Dennis was in the hospital in and out of a Coma for a few weeks and they said he was in fact doing much better.. When his last relative showed up at the hospital to see him he seemed to let go and pass away. Even though I would have granted him permission to drive out of state and no one had ever given exact guidelines to any of us I still felt as if somehow it was my fault.

I was in charge of his funeral events for the Military. I was SOOO young I was only 20 I couldn't handle it and the rest of the Airmen knew this. I had it out with my Commander who in no way even tried to send out someone to handle the family's arrangements for me which was protocol... after much debate my team pulled it together and had a nice Military Service and a Family correspondent was send out to help the family.

I shut down after this.. I blocked all emotions.. Nothing could shock me nothing at all.. Suicides of friends, death of family members nothing budged me.. It took 4 years for me to be OK with his death.. and this marks a year from that day.

Dennis Thomson I pray for you and your family on a regular basis.

Last nights affairs @ 7:26 AM

After work I drove to OKC to hang out with some friends for Ben Richardson's birthday. It took me a good while to figure out exactly what I was going to wear. Not only that but I really had no clue as to the location of the party and trust my my GPS system was a failure as well..

Alas I made it. The party was as follows...

Standing in Kitchen
Mixed drinks
Sat on couch
Read the closed captioning to OZ and then a few game shows
Met Michael (who I might have a hetero/homo crush on)
Met Hunter Kenzie who is a doll Hunter's Blog.
and then Left

I did infact have fun... But awkwardness is always in the air at quite house partys... Im more of the.... everyone is beyond caring crazy drunk house partys but they cant all be like that right???

lol yess @ 6:59 AM


Soooo a few days after we started renting the garage of death (filled with fiddle back spiders) and the door had been opened We saw a MOUSE…. I mean… honestly.. as long as they don’t poop all over the place and I never see them except by the garage Door…… I don’t care… but… others do lol… WELL so I decided to go buy some mouse traps… Im thinking hmmm wellll I can Get the regular ones and risk losing a finger … these little box ones with poison and risk it eating the poison and then dying in Some random place only to smell up the damn building or these sticky ones and ill just throw them away and they will probably Get unstuck in the trash and run free at the land fill….. NOOOOO


This damn mouse that was on the sticky pad this morning kept looking up at me and yelping like whyyyy whyyyyyyyy and it kept using All its body mass to scoot the entire sticky pad closer to me like BLAKE GET ME OFF THIS THING…. But alas… im gay and im not Touching a damn mouse… So as I throw it away and then take the trash outside its yelping the whole time….

Basically…. I feel like I just killed a mother mouse of 25 babies that will now die because she did not come back with the cracker that I crazily placed in the middle of the worst creation known to man….

Does anyone have a better option… like is there a mouse kennel… like with cheese so I can just catch them and relocate them like… behind Mazzios or something lol

Old Guy @ 6:53 AM


so.. fun story.. Work is soo boring... and so Jala and myself are just sitting at our desks when this old guy wearing his 'Im a Veteran' hat comes in.. At first I notice his eyes are almost Silver and crossed so im naturally wondering HOW IN THE HELL DID YOU DRIVE UP HERE??? He just wants to pay a bill so he does.. but then he starts talking....

"I have this condition I didnt know I had where I dont breathe enough in my sleep and I lose brain cells so now I have to wear a mask!"

"I am tired of computers I spent $1000 on one and I couldnt figure out how to use it so i gave it away."


So at this point I am emailing Jala who is across the room about how this guy just likes talking about everything and anything... and about how its ok as long as he doesnt have a flash back from NAM and all of a sudden try to kill me....


His phone rings (I cant get no.... satisfaction....) and he FLIPPPPS OUTTTTT he literally jumped and grabbed his heart.... at that point I am laughing so hard im almost falling out of my chair... Then Jala starts in hahah... He looks at us as if we called him from one of our phones and then he says loudly

"I thought I was having a stroke!!"

and then walks out

My own haircut! @ 4:26 PM

So.... Stephanie was looking through magazines and said Blake dont you wish your hair was still curly??? And it struck a nerve I did infact wish my hair was curly again... I wouldnt have to spend so much time fixing it... I remembered when I was little and my grandma put a wave in my hair to completed my curlyness because it was only half curly... Right when I had this memory Stephanie said well do you know anyway to make your hair curly again.... The answer well Im pretty sure...

Once cvs trip, 25 mins working in the curls and a shower later my hair was FRYED!!! hahha so apparently your not suppose to put a wave in your hair within 3 months of coloring your hair... Well I colored my hair like a few weeks ago bhahahahaha to cover up the bleach from a month ago rofl.... SOOOO I got to cut my own hair... I honestly dont have to use hair product anymore...

But its ok... because i did this once before.. frying my hair that is... and it made my hair grow like a wildfire.... FINGERS CROSSED!!!

P.s. if you replace stephanie in the story with my own inerthoughts telling me what to do you have the actual story...... DONT JUDGE ME!!!!!!
