    Do unto Others

    Technorati Tags: Gay Rights,Proposition 8,Prop 8,Church,Religion I’m not one for keeping up appearances.  But I’m certainly not one for acting a fool and throwing tantrums.    The following would be a reason why I don’t walk around with rainbow colored memorabilia on display or have  gay pride bumper stickers and decals plastered all over my car.    I was perusing the internet when I came across this article about gays vilifying those who voted “yes” on prop 8.   (color me obsessed with prop 8 a day late and a dollar short).     Obviously it’s not just black folks who don’t know how to act in public.   I understand the frustration after prop 8…

    Reality’s seriously kicking my ass right now.   What i wouldn’t give to be a little kid again and not have a damn thing to worry about. Just to live my life so carefree.  I kind of feel like I’m in this little rat race and I’m finishing last.  When I take my last breath what will I have accomplished besides working way more hours than I should and basically alienating all who ever cared or loved me.  the past few days have been nothing but a series of epic realizations.   Perhaps realizations that came to pass  a day late.   My mother told me I had my fathers temper and that…

    Random Train of Thought

      I am honestly trying to steer clear of posts about my professional life. Except I’m not finding that easy because I spend most of my waking hours here at the lab. I’m at the lab right now waiting for a recovery to be completed and hoping that once it’s done, I won’t have to hear any bitching and moaning from my client. I know I’m supposed to enjoy this coz it’s what I signed up for in college but sometimes it’s just a little frustrating. Sometimes I think people forget they’re dealing with human beings when they inquire about our services. You know while he’s laid up in his…

    Misanthropic Musings

    Technorati Tags: relationships,priorities,spirituality,vacations Lately I’ve been worried about my own spiritual wellbeing.  Everyday feels more and more robotic.  I go to work.  I work for 12 hours (even though I shouldn’t).   I come home.  I hop online, read a few blogs, comment if i have the energy and then go to sleep.   I work so much now that I use the entire weekend to sleep.   My days are no longer the typical 9 to 5 that most have come to enjoy.  They’re more like 9 to 9 or 9 to 10.  Sometimes I work on weekends too.   With work playing such a major role in my life, I haven’t really…

    Promoting the Black Voice.

    I’m not gonna Lie.  I’m a fan of the little gossip blogs that pop up on the internet.  But there are times when I think folks just take it a little too far.   I was reading an article (article being an overstatement) on necolebitchie.com about Gabriel Union.   In it she’s talking to an editor at VIBE magazine about her disdain for malicious blogs that spread rumors and innuendos  without actually researching the facts.   She goes on to talk about how this can thwart any efforts or intentions of doing some good in ones community: It’s like if you wrote for a major newspaper or a major magazine. If you can’t…

    Over The Top

    Technorati Tags: Celebrity,Gossip,Keri,Hilson,Keri Hilson,Fans,Angry Fan,Angry,Fan     I don’t think I could ever be a superstar or in the limelight.  I don’t really have the patience for it.    I was on NecoleBitchie  yesterday reading about Keri Hilson’s disgruntled fan and I’m thinking to myself: Some people are so over the top with it.   Apparently he claims Keri told him “next” at an autograph signing which  “hurt his wittle feewings”.  My stance on that b.s. is “get over it”.    She signed your shit didn’t she?   Here’s his rant courtesy of theblogchic.blogspot.com: Keri’s Response (via Twitter ) Keri Hilson addresses the angry fan who claims she was a “rude conceited b*tch” at…

    What if?

    I’m feeling a little inspired by Alix’s fiction. Only this isn’t fiction. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time now and wondering if I should’ve taken things a step further. For the purposes of this blog we’ll call her Famous. I met her online a Long time ago (6 years give or take). She was in the military. She was Arabian and black, spoke 7 languages and worked for Criminal Intelligence. She was Grade A prime cut material. She didn’t really identify as a Stud or a Femme. She was just “Famous”. The opportunity presented itself to physically meet back in 2006. I was in Atlanta on business…

    Infatuation or the Real McCoy

    I’m 30 years old.  I’ve been through a lot and experienced alot so I tend to be good at reading people.  Body language, mannerisms and overall swag.   So i’m here chuckling to myself as I’m reading blogs.   I ran across 2 individuals with the same topic and the same style of writing for that particular topic.   Now i’m laughing because It’s so obvious to me that they’ve got this thing going on.   Yet, they swear everyone else is clueless.   But it’s funny that both posted topics about sex and both started asking questions about how soon is too soon to start digging someone.      Anyway this blog is not about that.  …

    All Points Bulletin

    APB: If anyone sees a fat rusty black-lipped chick driving a Dodge Caravan Virginia License Plate# E644 008 please set her and that car on fire. This chick decides to cut us off on I-85 yesterday somewhere between NC & VA. We ignored it and kept moving. Later on I notice the aforementioned pulls up next to my side of the car ( the passenger side) and starts mouthing obscenities. So I rolled my window down and cussed her fat ass out. There were four people in my car. My Mom was driving. My bro and my nephew were in the backseat. This bitch decides to take it a step…
