My Dream Date...

I started watching Dancing with the Stars to see if Lil Kim had any other skills outside the ones she obviously learned on the pole (not judging), but last night Gilles & Cheryl killed it. Y'all remember Gilles in that infamous "Sex and the City" movie scene where he introduced Mr. Happy to female(and some male "how you doin'?")movie goers across the nation. Anywhooo.. after you fast forward past all the idle chatter about bundled nerves, double eliminations, and starving children (sorry.. wrong show), you could catch a glimpse of what my dream date would be.. for now anyway. I admit, it would be damn near impossible to get the average 30-40 year old single black male to agree to this.. sober, unless the promise of hot, sweaty sex was the final result! I like a man who can lead!! The magic starts around 1:30.


Can't short change my girl Lil Kim. If you saw "Notorious", she should write an instructional manual on mastering the come up.. minus the nip and tucks. Click here if you feel like day dreaming.

We need to have rules for Facebook……

Alright people, Yes, the "chicks" have converted. Now that I am a part of the true "cyber universe" and have joined FB, I think there needs to boundaries and limitations. While I am enjoying my ability to reconnect and tell people what I am doing every minute of the freakin' day, I feel that on a few occasions, people have stepped too far outside of their box. I have had this discussion with my "chicas" on many occasions and I think we agree, there needs to be very explicit rules. No shades of gray. If you don’t, it may cause major confusion in the long run so lets save ourselves some heartache!

Here are a few of my rules: feel free to comment, add, or adapt your own! My expectations may not be your expectations…...

1. If you are married or have a VSB "Very Serious Boo" -if an EX or anyone you EVER slept with tries to "friend" you - JUST SAY IGNORE!! It will feel like you are being tortured to death by paper cuts if your mate ever finds out. Trust me on this one….

2. Settings- make sure that you create your settings to only allow you or your friends to see your page. Once again, the crazies are out there but more importantly many employers are searching potential candidates pages for any shenanigans. If you have been "tagged" in a photo where you are drunk at the club sprawled out on the dance floor a future employer may use that against you!

3. Unless your FB page states you are interested in a relationship, don’t add people you don’t know! Many do it just to escalate their "friend" number. Too many crazies people, too many crazies!! And the number of friends you have really doesn’t matter now does it? If your true friends and or family are on your page, that is who you really care about RIGHT?!?!

4. Coworkers- to add or not to add? The problem with large numbers is that you forget who you have enlisted as your " friends" and when you write that you have been sitting on the toilet, out binge drinking or hooked up with a one night stand does that really need to be the topic of convo around the water cooler? Don’t think so!

5. It is OKAY to DELETE!!! I delete miscellaneous people I made my friends because I thought I knew them or we had ONE friend in common. I delete those stupid friend things you all want me to do like send a kiss from a monkey to ten people. I delete party promotions for cities I do not live in, I delete dumb ass comments, I delete stuff I just don’t feel like answering. I am SOOOO okay with it!

You know how you are watching something completely hilarious and you want to release a laugh so loud bodily functions may not be able to contain themselves.. ewww! I don't know why I found this one so funny, but the gut wrenching clencher is when the flip flops fly off into the air. Gave me the LOL's!!

When I look at the above pic, the first thing that comes to my mind is "welcome to the mind of a serial killer". That look on her face screams straight jacket.

I am really loving my new church.. well not really new.. I just rejoined two weeks ago. I usually get a little annoyed when they announce there is a guest pastor, but this one was good. He talked about the daughters of Job (won't get into the specifics since I left my Bible in the car). The short and sweet version.. illustrates how beneficial the strong bond between fathers and daughters can be. So, it got me thinking about modern day traditions our society uses to display this treasured bond. When I was 17, I participated in a Debutante Ball. It is a formal way for young women to be introduced into society. Yeah, it was fun dressing up in what looked like a wedding dress for a teenager (there's a connection), while on display for all of high society (more like mid society) to gawk at. Adhering to all the strict protocol, detailed etiquette, the all white dress code which was a sign of purity (technically I was still pure at the time.. thank you very much). The one thing that sticks out in my mind is the father/daughter dance. What a profound symbol at a young age. We all know that daughters usually learn how to be treated by their future boyfriends/fiances/husband by the example passed down from their fathers. Both positive and negative. With all the "daddy" issues I have, he did always make me feel that I should expect and always deserve the best. I see it now in the raising of my young niece and that special bond that is now developing between her and my brother in law. I think we take those lessons for granted and they usually get side lined for the quick and easy fix. Here I am, almost 20 years later, having to remind myself to revert back to the basics. The lesson can be so simple.. yet so easily forgotten.

I personally was a witness to this dream some time ago during my college days in Tallahassee where Little Ke Ke opened her mouth to sing at the drop of a hat.... the Miss Freshman pageant and most memorably in apartment #E44 we were treated to a mini concert on a daily basis. It warms my heart to see dreams come to fruition. She definitely deserves it!

Souled Out - Hezekiah Walker & LFC

I'm in a good mood today. It's cloudy outside, but not on my soul. Seriously.. uh oh.. I feel a testimony coming on. I have my "Jesus" moments. I don't just drink the occasional martini, mildly curse (I'm working on that). There is some good deep down in here. To steer you in the right direction.. my "HAPPY DANCE" pick for the weekend is surprisingly not from the Gucci Mane collection. If "Souled Out" doesn't put you in a warm mood, I don't know what to tell you.. drop down on your knees now! Jesus wept!

Watch CBS Videos Online

Like beating (poor choice of words) a dead horse, I know this subject has been discussed at length. Eventhough, I've known my stance on the matter.. (a man should never hit a woman under any circumstances), I know opinions vary depending on age, gender, race, and level of retardation. I've gotten comments from friends, coworkers, the chick that takes the orders behind the counter at Full Yum (shout out to Joon Sung), and even the Great "O" chimed in. Fortunately, I've never been in a relationship were a disagreement has ever reached that level of violence. Some may say that means I've never been in a real relationship... and to that I say.. "the yellow pages has a list of therapist.... pick one!". Ain't nothing wrong with a little therapy, I plan to go get some as soon as my job goes permanent and after my 90 probation period my benefits kick in. I figure since I was blessed to see the age of 29.. okay.. 32.. dammit 35.. I'm one of the lucky ones. I like Katie's approach... short, sweet, and to the point.

In the illustrious words written by Rick James and sung by Eddie Murphy.. "my girls love to party all the time.. party all the time... party all the tiiiiiiime." I know this is the second time I've used this in a blog post.. but it can be used in so many different situations. I've reached the point where the mind and body are starting to separate. You know.. your mind has plans, but the rest of your body didn't get the memo. I cannot go from hustle mode to party mode within a span of 12 hours with only one meal and no nap (the two apple martinis didn't help). Now, I am paying dearly for it. The body shut down started almost two days after the festivities.. the sore muscles, scratchy throat, stuffy nose, and worst of all .. the shakes. I'm waving the white flag in surrender. I get it. I'm not 25. I can't go hard like that anymore. Now all I have left is the after taste of NyQuil, the scent of Vicks Vapor rub, and a trash can full of dirty tissues. See how Jesus got jokes? I'm sitting down now.

"You've got to be seen in green, I wouldn't be caught dead in red!" The Wiz

My pops always told me I was a little too "fast" for my age. I promise you at the tender age of 8, I witnessed the blessed Emerald City Sequence from The Wiz and knew I had to strive to be grown and sexy for life. Somethings just leave an imprint. I was reminded how I lost my way last Wednesday when I awoke to my usual routine of coordinating outfits to realize when I reached work I had 3 out of the 4 color groups on... and not in a good way. Yeah, I'm still somewhat living out of a suitcase, but I need options! I know I need to plan my outfits the night before, but I thought by now I would have this dressing thing down. You know your clothing selection has reached a WACK level when you walk down the hall, eyes to the floor, afraid to look anybody directly in the face. Can I get Ru Paul on speed dial? This may be cause for drag queen intervention.

It is so fabulous to have friends in high places! My girl, Keanna "KJ Rose" Johnson just release her new single "A Better Way" on Itunes today. Click here for more info on Itunes, Facebook, and Myspace!

KJ Rose…vocalist, songwriter, and performer is set to embark on a music career that will one day allow her to transcend genres, audiences, and time. Her tenacity and fervent love for music afforded her the opportunity to lend vocals to artists that include P. Diddy, KRS1, R. Kelly, Mario, Carl Thomas, Monica, Common, Dead Prez and a host of others. This Chicago native is now ready to step into the spotlight and claim her very own piece of heaven.

While growing up on the south side of Chicago, KJ Rose honed her talents at an early age while singing with The Soul Children of Chicago gospel choir as well as The Trinity United Church of Christ young adult choir. She was influenced by the voices of formidable talents that include Anita Baker, Stephanie Mills, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan and Phyllis Hyman.

Upon graduating from Florida A&M University, KJ Rose’s enthusiasm for music landed her in New York City. She spent several years cultivating her craft but it wasn’t long before she found herself gracing the platinum-selling albums of Heavy D (Big Daddy), Notorious B.I.G. (Playa Hata), and Mase (Why You Wanna Hurt Me). Subsequently, KJ Rose had a chance encounter with Kelly Price who offered the opportunity to tour with P. Diddy & The Family, which was further confirmation that her dreams were attainable! This experience set the stage for her to soar to new heights landing appearances in movies (Trois), commercials (Verizon), and television (Grammy Awards). Her audacious efforts would later find her touring with major recording artists Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears.

The other night, I made an attempt to catch The Hills.. no wait The City.. ooops.. I mean, the black version.. Harlem Heights. My sleeping schedule has been a little off lately, cause I only made it through the opening credits... but that was long enough for me to find my cast favorite (I use the word "cast" cause you know it's scripted.. right?). My new girl crush is Brooke. She seems a little cocky, sure of herself, and her gear is HAWT!! Good Bye Old Navy.. Hello Barneys.. okay.. well maybe not good bye.. maybe a SEE YOU LATER. My income has to match my aspirations, I'm on my way. A college buddy is an executive producer, so I'll give it a chance. Tune in Monday @ 10p. Click here if you're bored.


It don't get no flyer than this! My First Lady in Vogue. Ya girl needed some creative inspiration since I'll be pouting and posing this weekend in print for some side projects I'm working on(keep it clean, I'll be fully clothed!). Now if I could recreate this fabulousness by Saturday.. I'll need a stylist, make up artist, hair/weave specialist.. scratch.. one magician coming up! Nawh.. I'm not that bad (Paging Dr. Where Is My Self Esteem). I'll pull it together .. 4 days and counting!

Only In A Woman's World

See.. this is what happens when a nap sneaks up on you around 7 pm and you wake up 3 hours later wondering why the tv is on C Span (snooze fest). Now, I'm wide awake, dreading the 8 inches of snow I'm going to have to beat into submission just to make it to work tomorrow. Where did my weekend go? To the point, I caught this cute clip posted below. This is sooooooo me and my girlfriends. FYI, I'm the one that would show up to the pool with the control tops... classic!

Watch the trailer for Only in A Woman's World.

You’ll laugh out loud when you watch this trailer for the new series Only in a Woman's World.
