Spitting Weak Game Will Get You Nowhere

Guys have lost their minds. I’m so convinced. I went to the grocery store this morning and some grown man, had the nerve, the gall to catcall me “Ay, Erykah Badu!”

SIGH!

Never mind the fact that I look nothing like Ms. Badu. I have had people call me Jill Scott, India.Arie, and every other natural sister out there. Why can’t dudes just approach a woman with a simple line like, “Hi my name is ____. I think you’re beautiful and I would like to get to know you better.”? I would respond much more positively to that than I would to a guy randomly screaming out the name of a famous sister with an afro.

I’m not the only person who has had this issue. My best friend has a short haircut and guys are always like, “Yo Keyshia Cole! Rihanna! Fantasia!”

Dudes really need to step their game up. That stuff is weak as hell.

It could be worse though:

Happy New Year!

Sorry this post is so late. I’ve been trying to…ahem…recover from my night last night. We had a ton of fun at the annual New Year’s Eve party at the house. It was Mommy’s birthday and I’ve not seen her so energetic in a long time.

I love bringing in a New Year at home with family and friends. Good food. Good drink. 🙂 And Guitar Hero of course.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I don’t believe in making resolutions because rarely do we keep them. Instead, I think I will try to make a resolution on a monthly or weekly basis. It seems easier that way. I don’t know what my first resolution will be.

I do know that 2009 will be a great year.

The Day After

I hope everyone’s holiday was all that they hoped it would be. I had a great time with my family (until my sister beat me at Guitar Hero).

Last night I was talking to a friend who said that she always feels this inevitable let down after Christmas dinner. Perhaps because we spend so much time shopping for gifts, wrapping gifts and anticipating gifts we build up to this huge climax and there’s no gentle way to come down from that sort of high. I never feel that let down. Or maybe I have never thought about it that way.

The holiday season is special for me for so many other reasons. The material gifts are just bonuses. The real gift is having an excuse to get together with family and celebrate the fact that another year has passed.

Happy 1st Day of Kwanzaa!

Habari gani? UMOJA (Unity) in the family, the community, the nation and the race.

Christmas Frustrates Me…

Because I really suck at wrapping gifts. And because my mother wraps gifts so well, we are all expected to have expertly wrapped gifts to put under the tree. My gifts…no bueno. In fact, I think I have reached a new low. This morning, I took my time with the tape and the scissors and the wrapping paper. When I finished, the gifts looked as if a seven year old had wrapped them. My sister let me hear all about it too.

Whew. Glad I got that off of my chest.

Seriously, I love this time of year because everyone is in such high spirits. We’ve been listening to Christmas music since Friday. It’s officially time to get into the spirit of the holidays. 🙂

Airport BS

I spent most of yesterday traveling. Like a good little person, I packed according to TSA guidelines. Every time I go through airport security I get more and more frustrated with the system. Well, yesterday, I decided that I wasn’t going to take out my little baggie of liquids and gels because I was tired of the BS. So I left the baggie in my luggage.

Glad this wasn't dangerous...

Glad this wasn't dangerous...

I’ll be damned if I didn’t get through security with no hassle. That leads me to believe that the x-ray machine is a sham. F*ck TSA. I don’t feel safe at all. They don’t even know when people are breaking the rules. Incompetent fools.

I could hardly sleep on my flight because I was afraid that someone else had gone through security with something more malicious than Colgate and Visine so I decided to take pictures…

Clouds the entire way...

And then I decided to push my luck a little further and keep my electronic devices on after the pilot said turn them off…again…nothing. But, perhaps I should count my blessings lol.

Saturday Confessional

I am packing my stuff, getting ready to leave my dorm and struggling to fit everything into the appropriate bags and boxes and I came across my mark of shame. Over the past four years this has been a big joke for my friends….I own a B2K DVD.

B2K DVDSigh….

I own it! At one point in my life I actually watched it. I don’t remember how it got to school with me but it did. I want to get rid of it but something just won’t let me. It has been the source of some goodnatured teasing and it reminds me of the time when all I cared about was when B2K was on TV or in concert. I bought all of their albums…even the Christmas joint.

Yikes. I was one of those screaming girls…

I know I’m not the only one though!

There, I’ve confessed…I used to be a B2K fan. Thank God I know real music now.
