What else have I been up to?

Bashing my head in while watching CNN’s ‘Black in America’ is fun

Maybe Cory had trouble finding a job because when asked to rank, on a scale of one to ten, how important finding a job was, he answered thirteen or fourteen.

Is it wrong that I am spending ninety percent of the time watching this and yelling “where is that child’s mother?’ at my TV?

Marry your baby daddy day? WHAT. THE. MOTHERFUCK?

18 year old with a three year old getting tested for HIV because she continues to have unprotected sex with a man she “doesn’t trust”? Cereal?

“We have found a myriad of ways to enable these women to raise babies by themselves and that is a problem.” – “Expert”
Yes, that’s the problem.

Spike Lee has trouble getting financing? Well, maybe he should make movies that suck less.

Joseph Phillips is so angry…what’s up with that? Did somebody blow through their Cosby Show mobneys?

Sorry Soledad, but if you have to add the words “is a famous rap artist” then he ain’t a famous rap artist. 607? Who on earth is 607?

Hold up

My people have our own cigarette flavour?

A rift has opened in the 43-member caucus over a menthol provision in legislation that would enable the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco. To reduce smoking’s appeal to teenagers, the legislation would outlaw flavored cigarettes — except for menthol cigarettes, which are specifically exempted.

With menthol brands making up about 28 percent of the $70 billion American cigarette market, the exemption was seen as a necessary compromise to win broad backing for the legislation.

Bedtime stories for playmate bunnies?

Is it wrong that while watching Last Comic Standing I expect…um…I don’t know…stand up comedy?

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of TV: The Cleaner with Ben Bratt blows. So does Burn Notice. All Battlestar feature players, please return to the Galatica.

Gossip Girl, on the other hand, is the shizznit.

First place team says what?

Yeah, yeah, suck it, Ari.

Oh, you wacky Kiwis

Don’t you realize dumb baby names are only for the famous?

New Zealand children have been given names such as Number 16 Bus Shelter, Violence and Benson and Hedges(twins).

But other names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, have been blocked by registration officials.

The revelations came during written findings by Family Court Judge Murfitt, who ordered a girl be put in court guardianship so her name – Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii – could be changed.

The girl’s lawyer told the judge she was so embarrassed by her name she refused to reveal it to friends.

Is this thing on?

Casca’s comment below seems to indicate the commenting issue is fixed…for all you lurkers here is your chance to give something back to the blog that has given you…um…not that much. So much thanks to Yaron for taking my four a.m. plea email and working his magic. I’m still not able to blog from mozilla, but he says that may be a space issue. Small steps. Why I am up at this unholy hour when I was also up at 4 a.m. is a question for another day. Hopefully one where I had more sleep.

Anyway, comment away, how about we do a yes/no on did Edwards really father a baby with another woman? I say nay because believe you me, I so would have been his baby mama and yet, he didn’t even so much as reply to any of my emails or myraid drooling posts.

That summer completely reshaped how I deal with people. I am always watching, listening, observing. I never volunteer information and have mastered the question that sounds like an answer. I never again want to be in the position of being where I am not wanted, with people who don’t want me around.
So it is that I don’t make friends easily. And I have no delusions that any relationship is permanent.
People come and they go and all you can hope for is that you notice when they’ve left.

Unfortunately, I didn’t quite internalize that lesson as well as I thought I had…somehow I still managed to convince myself that some relationships were permanent. Mah Bad. (This stupid project is undoing a lot of the ‘healing’ I’ve done in the past two months and is starting to feel very much like emotional cutting. Grrr arrrgghh.) I am so Ghez.

HAHAHAAHA I haven’t changed a bit:

I’ve got like four moods: confused, bitter, angry and whimsical.

Usually in that order.

Technical savvy difficulties

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008 by Dawn Summers

Okay, as should be quite obvious here, I am merely the talent on this blog. I have no idea how to do anything but click the ‘write’ link and then hit the ‘publish’ key –every now and then, i can mix it up by hitting the link or block quote buttons. However, God has blessed me with charm and sucking up abilities which should induce those with the technical know-how to fix the blog in the next seven or so days. So, please bear with me until then. I’m not going to do anything crazy like promise it’ll be worth the wait, but I will guarantee you, it’ll be free. You know you love me, XOXOXO

I’ve been pouring through my archives trying to come up with 15-20 essays that have a theme or tells some kind of story or that are interesting or at the very least will not have my class laughing its collective ass off at me. Anyway, I came across this chestnut of wisdom and it made me laugh.

And this chestnut made me not laugh.
