Lordy Lord!

Hey girls!

Today is a much better day, I have a day full of meetings and class! It is good to be out of the house for a little bit.

Nothing major happened last night, so thats great! I am trying to find cute things to make a treat bag with. The adorable little guy that I babysit for loves prizes so I think I am going to go hunt down some candy and stuff. Any ideas?

Last night, I finally got my printer installed!! It is about time! I had to go and work at this thing for my publicity class from 8pm to 11pm and set up for an opening night reception. It was a bitch at first because HELLO I am a com major and I didnt know a soul! BUT later on into the night, I saw this guy who is a teacher and he apparently used to be a soap opera actor and out of the blue he came up to me and told me I looked like a politicians wife (black dress, yellow tweed blazer, gold flats) I told him that in this day and time you never know if thats a good or a bad thing. He told me I was attractive and it was a good thing and then he asked what I wanted to do when I get out of school. I told him about how my dream is to be on the Today show and he just kept talking about having faith and achieving goals and dreams. It was very motivational, and it just made my night! I loved it, and he is just the nicest fella!

I hope you all have a great Wednesday, I will post more later!

Hey girls!

I am so embarrassed because this morning I was taking a shower and 5 minutes after my roommate left I heard a knock on the bathroom window, and so I ran outside and cried and called her to please come home. I felt like such a bitch because here she is trying to go to school and im scared again! Also, I have had to call my internship and tell them whats going on and I feel like such a let down. Even though, it isn't paid, I still feel like I owe it to them to be there. I am so distraught.

This morning I got a weird call asking all about Friday night and the guy said he was a cop, but our detective said he would never expect a cop to call us and so he came over about 1:30 to get to the bottom of this. He said nobody would call us but him and it couldn't have been a cop. Come to find out, it was a cop so I felt even dumber. I just feel so helpless right now and I feel like such a let down to my teachers, and everyone because I am so out of it right now. I decided that from now on im putting a smile on my face and moving on until something happens. The detective should have it under control anyway. My mom, and my roommates mom both want to come to Raleigh and whoop some ass, I mean because I do feel safe in a sense, just very scared too. I am not going to move because I love our house and I love that a detective is on our side.

My roommates boyfriend came over and we rode down every road, and saw a time warner cable truck. I glared into that bitch like there was no this point, even I could whoop some ass! I just know it is the cable guy who was calling me because after my landlord called and blessed out TWC the calls stopped. I love TWC for one thing, and know they would be embarrassed to have employees like that. I just don't know what the deal with the Tahoe is.

What should I do?

Thanks for letting me rant, next week I know my posts will be back to crazy...funny...SAFE stories again! Thanks for all of the sweet comments that you sweet gals leave me all the time. I love blogging, it sure is a way to get how I feel out there!

Stalker/Wedding/Fun Weekend!

Hey girls!

I know its been forever since i've posted but we have had the craziest of crazy week! I know every day I write about is just out there, but this is goodness!

So it all started last week when I started getting sketchy phone calls from a man named "Jason" saying "Im watching you" in the middle of the night, and then calling me one night after I quit my nanny job and saying "I didnt see you come out at 5am, but I did see your roommate come in at 8." Then I got one and he said "I think your really pretty, and I love to watch you and your roommates."

Its enough already!

The calls have ceased and now it is just some white Tahoe with a personalized NCSU license plate.

See, at first I really thought it was the cable guy calling me because remember from a few posts back...he was so crude and he hit on me...oh and told me he had been to prison. I didnt even think, but then he did tell me he needed my number on the contract for the business file. Well, I have never gotten cable before so I gave it to them on the contract.

Okay so, heres the story.

I came home last Wednesday at 11:30am to find a big brand new white Tahoe in my usual parking spot, I mean it is my anyways I swerved and parked in front of the Tahoe. I thought at first that maybe my roommate just had a friend over.

Well, I got out of my car and noticed that the Tahoe was running, the windows were darker then my on growing roots (but thats not here or there), and NOBODY was in the passenger or the driver seat.

So, I went into my house and saw my roommate on the couch, and I said "girl who's in the Tahoe?" She said "what Tahoe?" She said a Tahoe had been behind her the whole way home from school, but that it kept going straight when she got home. Well, it was now hiding behind the trees in our driveway, and so we said well maybe they are waiting on someone or having car trouble so, AN HOUR AND A HALF later we had another class so we were leaving. I decided that I would (stupidly I know) walk to my car and pretend to get something and look to see if anyone appeared to be in the drivers seat, well I looked as my roommate stood on the porch with her phone ready to dial 911, and again I saw no one. I even waited for a minute and then yelled "I don't see a soul!" RIGHT as I got back on our porch the car all of the sudden locked the doors, the horn went off and it sped off so so fast! SOMEONE WAS HIDING IN THE BACK SEAT!

I just was so angry, I called 911 so fast and told them they better please send a patrol car asap!!

So as I said, me and my roommate locked the door...well that night all 4 of us were talking and you will NEVER guess!!

My other roommate came home, see we left at 12:30, my other roommate came home at 2 from her class and NOBODY with a key had been to the house, but the door was unlocked when she got here. She said she assumed I forgot to lock it...because I would, and so she came in and took a shower. She had put her phone in the MIDDLE of our coffee table and it was off, and as she was drying her hair with the bathroom door shut she hears something CRASH! She comes out to see what it is and the door is yet again unlocked, and her phone is in pieces on the ground!!

When we put 2 and 2 together we realized that someone came in our house and I was just appalled!

That night I got two more calls that I mentioned earlier, and those were the last calls I ever got! far haha!

Anyways, so Thursday it was 3 of us in the house and I have called the police a good 3 times at this point and...well I will get to that...not a good experience! But anyways, so Thursday we see the Tahoe drive by at least 8 times and they would basically stop in front of our den window and just STARE and then speed off. We were up scared stiff all night long, literally, we hadn't slept in 5 days at this point! We stayed on that couch until 4am trying to get a policeman out to our house but because we live in a safe place they NEVER COME! That just wrong!

So okay heres the police story...see as I said before,I always call whoever, and say whatever because I am the most talkative. Okay so I call 911 for the 5th time that night and this is what the bitch says!

"911, emergency this be Tameka speakin whatcha wanna report?"
"I said: "I need a cop to this address, please"
She must have started asking me 20 questions, and I just wasn't gonna deal with it! I had answered them all at least 8 times that night and she still hadn't sent anybody!!
So, I said "Listen, Tameka, I don't know who the hell you think you are, but if I am up at 3am with bags under my eyes because I haven't slept in 5 days because you wont send me a police officer to talk to, you better believe I do not want your attitude!
She said (mocked)"is somebody in your house right this minute, ready to come get you?"
I said, "Are you mocking me, Tameka, because if so, you'll be sorry! I don't know who raised you, but they did a bad job, I cannot believe you haven't sent a cop and I have called you all week, this is so out of hand.

So she sent a cop, his name was Juan and he said he was new to the force. He came to the door, said they couldn't file a report unless something actually happened, I wasn't allowed to talk to him because I was sleep deprived, scared, and steamed! My roommate was talking to him, but when he said that I went to that door in my seersucker pjs, and I said Listen,Juan, I don't mean to be rude but if you think we are lying come search the house! He said he didn't have a partner so he didn't want to search the house, so he said call if something actually happens and we shut the door and just kept on praying that somebody would believe us. Juan has a gun, but he cant search the!

FINALLY...Friday night me and my roommate were about to go to the beach to get the hell out of Raleigh and she and I decided to go to her friends wedding! It was fun! I'll get to that in a minute!

So anyways, we were about to leave for the wedding Friday night and all of the sudden my roommate just looked sick, and yelled KATIE, call 911 now! So I did, and of course it was Tameka again, and I said...don't start send a cop we see the guy. She said, honey we get calls like this everyday. Lets face it, you can yell and still use good manners! But after that, I had had it!

So my roommate said HE WAS AT THE WINDOW, so I peeked through the blinds and he had snuck up behind my roommates car and was just glaring at me, dead in the eye!! It was like he was looking at us like we were his prey! It scared me so bad, I had a panic attack! I haven't had one of those...ever! But I couldn't breathe and I was balling, I couldn't even talk for probably 15 minutes because i was crying so hard. Remember in Halloween how Michael Myers tilts his head and stares, that's what this guy did to me, just staring in the window.

The cops got there and threw him in the back of the car and dispatcher calls back, I couldn't EVEN compose myself to talk so my roommate tried to although, she wasn't much better!

The cops came to the door, and I answered and we told them what happened and they pulled the guy out of the car and brought him close to us and said "CAN YOU IDENTIFY HIM AS THE MAN YOU SAW?!" The guy just looked at me again, smiled and shrugged! My roommate and I said, that's him!

See when he was trying to get us, he had on a white cap and a black shirt, when the cops got him, he had changed into a yellow shirt and a toboggan. That is something a rapist does according to the cops!! I am so upset about this, its just absolutely enough! I am 20 years old, I pay to go to a good school, and a great neighborhood and this happens!

Anyways, so here is the best part about the weekend so my post isn't all negative! My roommate and I went to her hometown and the next day we went to this beautiful old time looking wedding in this beautiful white church that was so so old.
After the wedding, we went back to my roommates house and her dad made us a White Russian to get ready for the reception!!! We had that and I was already chatty haha! It doesn't take much, then we got to the reception and we had the best time. They had bourbon punch and vodka and lemonade, I don't really think there was alcohol in any of it though, I couldn't feel a thing. My roommate and I kept going back to the bar, I mean we had a stressful week we needed to unwind and an open bar is the perfect excuse!

So okay it was later in the night and we had mingled, danced, what have you haha! AND so we made our 12nd, 10th (whose counting?) trip to the bar and my roommate said "I want some more punch please. And the bartender said, "Honey you drank it all!" HAHA!! I personally preferred the wine, and the bourbon punch but I swear there wasn't hardly any alcohol per cup!

HAHA!! That made my night!

Her mom was so embarrassed! It was so funny!

At the wedding, this big woman got up to do a solo in what can only be called a sailor suit and the wedding was beautiful accept for that minor detail! She was so so so funny, I was shaking in my pew with my roommate as everyone else kept their composure! As if her voice wasn't enough to make me laugh (I laugh at extremely inappropriate times!) she all of the sudden was singing and she was mid note and she was saying "In his faaaa(CHOKES)aaace...and then ends with a big grin like she didn't just choke!! Honey we saw it! HAHA! There was no music, just her and her voice, and I swear I about fell out of my pew!

But this weekend was just what I needed, and the dean of students has given us permission to skip class whenever we need to and that's good because today a private detective came to the house and I had to miss class and she said it was absolutely excused! I am just so stressed, and I don't get stressed i'm always okay but this has really shaken me up!

I hope y'all all have a great week though, I will try to post again soon!
