So yesterday, Jordyn’s school had their end of the year school carnival. She played one of those random carny games and won a goldfish. Of allll the fishes she could choose to take home, she chose the BIGGEST goldfish of them all. Enter into our lives Grumpy the Goldfish. We’ve had a few fish before - Chubby, Dory and Clara (RIP, in order respectively) - so we came home and knew the...

cstuffilike: welp, I’ll no longer buy random things from them again. fuckyeahhhhotstuff: Wow. What assholes. imakeshinythings: One of my lovely customers sent me a message today with this link. And here is my United/World of Love line: My heart sank a little bit. The World/United States of Love line that I created is one of the reasons that I was able to quit my full-time job. They...
Accidental Ice Cream Innuendo
As boo eats an ice cream Drumstick...
Me: You gotta say "pause" each time you take a bite.
Boo: I am in my mind.
Me: What else is in there that's ice creamy? I hate those.
Boo: Cookies n' Cream.
Me: Hmmm, nah. For some reason I have a craving for a fudgesicle.
Boo: *with sly smile* I know you do.
Me: Shut up! Ooooh, you know what I hate? Those popsicles with the cream inside.
Boo: *look of "you keep setting yourself up for fails"*
Me: I hate you.
I’m not going to watch @Oprah’s last show tomorrow, because I...– My mama, all in her emotions about Oprah’s finale. Aww :(

peecharrific: I have chemically straightened hair. Right now it has a fat neon green streak in the front. I typically wear it in a faux hawk. I wear enough eyeshadow to make me look like I want to be a Vegas showgirl - every day. I like acrylic nails that are long and curved and remind passer-by of talons….

The C-String: I’m not mad at the concept… but I need some user testimonials. Looks ultra-uncomfortable. And is it machine washable? Lol

cstuffilike: Here’s my (real) deal on the rapture that’s tomorrow. Maybe. I’m Christian. I believe the tomb’s empty and yes He’s risen. I believe that God is coming. I don’t know how I feel about the rapture, if it happens like the Left Behind series or not. I don’t know. Personally the Left Behind series… THIS
"Forget to Remember" - One of my favorite movie...
Bird Lady: I was afraid of getting my heart broken again. Sometimes you can trust a person, and then, when things are down, they forget about you.
Kevin: Maybe the'yre just too busy. Maybe they don't forget about you, but they forget to remember you. People don't mean to forget. My grandfather says if my head wasn't screwed on, I'd leave it on the school bus.
Bird Lady: I'm just afraid if I do trust someone, I'll get my heart broken.
Kevin: If you need somebody to trust, it can be me. I wont forget to remember you.
Bird Lady: Don't make promises you cant keep.
And then at the end he brings her the turtle doves... he remembered. Awwww : ) Ok I'm done.
I wonder where are the black girls like me. Not naturalistas or boho-chic. Not divas or always-on-glamazons. Not Plain Janes who take themselves too seriously to acknowledge their femininity. I love plenty of those women as friends and family across the spectrum. But I wonder where are the black girls like me. Just the regular chicks who aim to be fly but understated. Wear classic looks that...
I wrote this post a while ago, I don't remember...
I have no filter. I either say what I think, or I’m silent. Some people say I’m easy-going…it may just be that I know of no tactful way to say what’s on my mind. Some say I’m sharp-tongued… I just say what needs to be said and others don’t. You can hate what I have to say, but when I’m quiet is when you should worry.
X-Men: Generation Now
As I explain to my sister about the random pains I have on top of my neuropathy...
Adrienne: Do you think you could be having anxiety attacks like on "Wanted" and you can focus and shoot the wings off a bee?
Me: No. I hate you.
We talk more about the pains and my neurological problems.
Adrienne: You know, I see you and my other 2 friends who have these serious neurological problems ad you're only in your mid-twenties, and I think *serious tone* just maybe... hear me out. Do you think you guys might be mutants? I support you in your mutant powers.
Adrienne: I'm just saying, you're in pain over here, and down the street someone is levitating.

basseyworld: peecharrific: Unattractive people are paid less. Unattractive people are less likely to be believed if they report sexual assault or rape. Unattractive people are less likely to be believed if they report sexual harassment. And if Psychology Today (a respected source (subjective)) says “Hey, most people… This.

As some folks know and others I haven’t bothered to tell, I moved from Houston to St. Louis a few days after Christmas. The decision was made to get back into Corporate America to supplement my income and get much needed benefits for my child and I. Also, to save tons o’ cash by living with my sister, and have a great support system between her, my boyfriend and his family. The only...

Gift Check Kiddo!
Today, I worked all day then: picked my child up and had a race across the parking lot to the car (totally against the rules, but it was empty, so we went for it), treated her to an unhealthy after school Taco Bell run she begged for, came home and helped her with homework, cooked her a delicious dinner of grilled pork chops and other healthy sides, taught her how to do the dougie (don’t...
