Amalia with Chuck, Lara, P-Diddy, Tdanger, and Alexis. I think we're missing a couple more folks. Do the Naomi Campbell walk, Naomi Campbell walk. Walk across the room like Naomi Campbell. Do the Naomi Campbell walk, Naomi Campbell walk. Walk across the room like Naomi Campbell

I have to say I experienced it for the first time last night. I was not sure about what to stay or leave. Leave a pair of flip flops underneath your desk. They come in handy when you want to let your feet breathe. We men cannot wear open toe shoes to begin with. Yes, I know open toe shoes. I have been running around campus and town this past week. Tonight, I have one more commitment outside the home and I'm done. I'll be happy with just vanilla bean ice cream and Phaedra's monologues.

I'm contemplating on whether to have the remaining folks over on Friday night for one last hoorah before I go home. I may stock up on the eggnog from Astor Wines. It can't stop thinking about it. To lessen the alcohol intake, they suggest adding milk to the drink. I am done with my Christmas of last night. The last remaining person was very difficult to buy for. What are you supposed to buy when a person has everything? Well, I managed to remember a few things from previous conversations. Henry, stop throwing up on yourself. If you walk away from the mirror, you can keep it all in. I promise. I drank some of Agnes's milk. She is tight with her milk, but I'm not with my snack drawer. Beezus, you're just jealous of my boogie. Mike, you have your third world problems and I have my first world problems. I need to get through this week. It's only Tuesday.

A special shout out to my cousin down in Houston for keeping it real. Yes, personality is also something we should all use as a bait to lure them in. My shit list has been updated thanks to a tip from Precious. I didn't get a chance to make the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies this past weekend. My morning tennis match took longer than expected. No more coffee shops for lunches. The next stop will be something Cajun. I am still sticking to the meatless diet. It helps that I am adding seafood into the mix. Too bad I couldn't stay longer at KNT and Nick's. That reminds me...I may pick up a couple more bottles of the eggnog. It was pretty good and poisonous. I took Sandrine and me over an hour to get to Astoria. Everyone was on the N train bound for Astoria and the train smelled like a chimney. We figured the smell would go away as people got off the train, but it lingered until the very end. We started smelling ourselves to see if either of us was burning up. I overshot the subway and took the scenic route. Bacaro had a wait of 2 hours for a party of 2 on a Friday night. Really? Was that even necessary? We ended up at An Choi where Alexis was reunited with Geller sans Mole. We shared a round of shots only to find out that they started a weekly Saturday night party. The Tammy was yummy. Sandrine walked away with the sexy handcuffs only to give them to me. I don't mind the yellow line, but it can get pretty crowded. I have a few more items to get tonight and I'm home free. Yes, running over the bridge was canceled due to inclement weather. Thank you to indoor gyms!

I bought shoes last week. I had them shipped to me because the store did not have my size. When I received the shoes, I didn’t like them on me because they looked big. I went to a location near my office to return them this morning. The guy would not give me a full refund. It was $100 and some change. He said he can give me $90 and some change for the refund because I already received a $10 gift card from them when I originally bought the shoes. They were having this promo where if you buy something, they give you a $10 gift card. He said he cannot take back the gift card. Therefore, he will deduct $10 from my full refund. I told him your refund policy states that I will get a full refund if I return the shoes unworn within 10 days. He said he can’t give me the full refund. I told him I was not happy with this because I am getting $90 in cash back and a $10 store credit that I don’t want and didn’t ask for when I bought my shoes. I offered to give the gift card back but he wouldn’t take it. I was like..okay, fine. I went back to my office and called customer service. The girl said the District Manager for Manhattan will call me back within 48 hours to address my complaint. Not even a minute of hanging up the phone with the customer service rep, the District Manager called me. He apologized that I could not get my full refund. He said that I should be able to get the remaining $10 back if I return to the same store where I returned the shoes. He said he didn’t get a chance to educate his employees on what to do with the gift cards because they couldn’t take them back. He said I should be able to get my $10 back if I go back to the same store. I told him the guy who “did me wrong” was not very polite. Anyways, I went back to the store and the guy didn’t even say hi. He just said “Can I see your card and the gift card?” I gave the cards to him and he issued me a $10 credit to my cc. All this for ten bucks!

It was tough getting back to reality today. I have way too many meetings this week and next. Things are supposed to slow down before the Winter Break. What happened? So BA has been removed from my calendar. It's been replaced by Iberia. It was a blast with Mo Hoa. She got to do what she wanted to do and some more. My Monday night was spent lounging on my couch catching up on the Housewives. I fell asleep at 9:30PM and woke up way too early this morning. Ross and I have another match up this weekend. This time, we are doing it indoors. No more outside rooftop business until the weather warms up.

My nails are terribly long. I have to clean them out throughout the day. Yes, they are quite disgusting. How do women keep them long and clean? Derek, Jacq, and I have an appointment to get them cut and cleaned tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to the pampering. I had no idea that Mel knows how to use FaceTime. I'm been deprived. Those little rascals will be all over the screen and yapping away like there's no tomorrow. Agnes imported a bunch of stuff for me from Jersey, but none of the stuff worked. I returned the items to the location in Soho and got a full refund. I ended up getting a pair of shoes from another place. It was definitely what I wanted initially. ACC will enjoy the matching outfits I got for them. I couldn't find the same thing for their dad. Plan B has been confirmed. Now for the details on what's to come. Look out for an email from Jacq's secretary. I'm wearing my nice shoes today because it's hump day. Let's get this rain over and done with before the weekend gets here. James, I can't find the 3D ones. I've never tried them. It sounds like it was a promotional thing or the fad didn't catch on. If it's good the way it is, leave it as is. Banh Mi Saigon can kiss my behind. The office is dull without holiday decorations. Tdanger should pay us a visit to brighten up the conference room.

Viet likes to post these articles about how he is second class compared to other men. We have had countless discussions on why he should not feel this way. You can do something about it instead of complaining and not take action. If you are short, there's really nothing you can do here unless you try what Jude Law wanted to do in "Gattaca". Be confident and work on other attributes that can be appealing. For example, work on getting in shape, learn a new hobby, update your wardrobe, maintain good grooming habits, eat healthy, clear up your skin, fix your teeth, learn how to dance, be confident when talking to the ladies, excel in your work, go back to school to earn a graduate degree, etc. There are plenty of things to do. Don't fixate on the height or your ethnicity. I feel like sending this message to him, but he won't get it. My advice is to pretend to shop for your girlfriend in the petites section of Banana Republic.
