It's a gang of you sorry ninjas.....saying the same thing. You all must go to the same school of "tired, played out lines". Guess what? I'm fresh outta fucks and I have none to give.

  3. Playboy was good I thought it would be wack so I didn't watch at 1st then decided to watch on line. I have to watch Prime suspect on line cause I missed it watching Grey's Maria Bella was good on ER.

    Lenny K has always been SEXY as all get out and he took the celibacy journey before which made him even sexier to me.

    SN -I am going to try my Shea Butter scrub tonight

  6. Okay, you're the bomb for installing that template. It looks amazing & also super cool that you're getting all html savvy and stuff!

    So that Playboy Club show is good? Dern, I meant to start watching it. How many episodes have i missed? I hate coming in during the middle of a season. Cant believe i forgot about it...

    lmaooo @ having a bootleg bunny costume back in the day. Ive always wanted to go as a bunny for Halloween one year, with Derek wearing a smoking jacket and carrying cigar, kind of like a Hugh Heffner look. But since the boys those dreams are kinda on hold. >:o No way am i putting on anybody's leotard without hitting the gym first. LOL

    Mercy!!!! @ that pic of Lenny. Nice.

    I hate when i dont have time to watch my shoes and have to play catch up all late.

    lol @ that PSA to the dudes harassing you. smh @ them

    Dereks been waiting on that iphone for so long, he almost gave up and got something else. I sure hope its worth the wait.

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
*sigh*
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.

I Had Hope For Other Hair: Confessions in Black Motherhood

I had hoped for other hair...
(My Little One Reading a Book Before Bed)

... for my daughter.

No, I didn't want her to have "good hair"... hair that ebbed and flowed close to the weight of Whiteness. I didn't want that for her.  I didn't want her to have hair that was deemed "managable" or "a good grade". as if you can give hair letter grades or grade it on a curve.

I just wanted her to have any hair other than MY hair. She inherited my hair. And I cried.

When I found out I was having a girl, anxiety was replaced with dread. "Dear God.. I have to learn how to do hair". See, growing up, my mother was my stylist, even way into high school. So in between salon visits, she would relax or press my hair. She'd style it or comb it. And I never worried about it. I tried and tried to do my own hair... and failed. The only style I could keep up were Brandy-inspired box braids (which some poor, Senegalese woman would do for hours) or a very sho…
