Feeling/Not Feeling: Halloween


  • HALLOWEEN! It is prob my fav non-holiday to Thanksgiving
  • crazy costumes
  • families who participate. Like my girl Yakini over at . I'm sure she has something  in store! She's always so bomb with her creativity.
  • I'm dressing up for the first time in like 3 years AND going to a party. You'll have to wait and see what I'll be!
  • I always think about how I wanted to be Wonder Woman and ran out in the cold on Halloween  in my Underoos, red cowboy boots,  and my mama got so mad
  • Candy goes on sale the day after, KIT KATS FOR EVERYONE!
  • It's.....The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!!
  • I'll have peace and quiet and no kids knocking cause kids in condos/apartments do not trick-or -treat. They go to the mall..which seems so lame to me.
  • Parties! With a spiked punch!!!. (I throw the best parties..although I'm not having one..just going to one)
  • Can I say Kit Kats again???
  • I'll be around friends this year. It should be a great time :)

Not Feeling:

  • people try and get all religious. Chill out. It's a holiday for  pure merriment and candy for the kid. Every culture has it.
  • the adult  Woman Costume I wanted (above) was sold out AND expensive
  • Therefore, I was torn between Nicki Minaj, Gaga, Amy Whinehouse, Janelle Monae...and picked neither of them. *shrug*
  • Why are all the costumes TOO sexy sometimes. Maybe I wanna be sexy but simple, ya know?
  • They don't make  CUTE costumes for curvy, busty gals.
  • Because of that..I had to piece my joint together and I pray I dont' look like a jackass
  • I got a slight cold. Not cool. Imma freeze my "paws" off (hint). LOL.
  •  Halloween is special because Halloween used to be "our" thing as a married couple. We had parties every year.
  • That I wont get to see my ex look like THIS again:(Gotcha b*tch. LMAO!! He was one hideous hooker in drag)

  • Or HIM this drunk....(LOL):

  • I really do miss the fun of the parties. They went down in infamy (LOL).  I'd love to have another. And it SUCKS that my current residence wants to charge like $300 to rent the room..*smh* Maybe when I move....
  • I miss my house...I miss passing out candy to the kids. Kids in condo/apartments do NOT trick or treat. They go to the mall w/ their scary asses! The first year I moved here..I got dressed up and no one showed up! I was so sad...(but I had plenty of candy!)
  • Candy Corn..that's just nasty torture
  • the family that gives out the cheap, dollar tree candy in the generic bag. Or peppermint (LOL) Or toothbrushes...or pamphlets...*smh*
  • The price of costumes ....JESUS! I didn't even get a FULL costume and it was high as hell!
  • I cant put my current locs into a cute wig. My mama tried to provide me a wig but it was hideous. LOL. So the effect I was going for with my costume will be sorta lost.
  • I won't be in a Thriller Flash Mob! *bummer*
  • That Black people do NOT like to dress up! Get the stick out of your ass! I hated having a party every year and someone goes "I don't do costumes". What?? It's a COSTUME party.
  • I can't carve a pumpkin to save my life...nor do I like the taste of it. *smh*
  • Halloween signals the end of the year basically.......not to mention (this year) my 3rd anniversary of my to the next one.
  • I was hoping I'd have kiddies to share in this day least one in some kind of Snuggie costume LOL. I always wanted to do a crazy family theme. Like Run DMC, or Kid and Play or something.
  • I will NEVER watch a scary movie. OR be alone on Halloween. EVER....(LOL)
  • It's cold. In a whole lot of ways.... *sigh*
  • On a Non-Halloween tip: Mariah do not throw SHADE to your husband on national TV? Get your mind right. He's young but he has fucking feelings, yo! He obviously loves her dirty drawers. She has been shitted on so much....*sigh* I feel her for the slight insecurity..but boo..not on national TV!

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween, everyone!


  1. Can't wait to see your costume! We are all geared up over here and ready for Halloween in the new neighborhood. I'll be sure to post pictures of the girls in their frippery! LOL!

  2. I don't partake in anything Halloween related except eat candy but I am a choc junkie anyway so that isn't anything new lol I do laugh at the Halloween costumes we had our party today at work some ppl are very creative. I am lame and just eat candy #fail I can't wait to see pics of my niece and nephew on Monday as they head to the fall festival at church.

    I have never been a fan of scary movies :nono:

    I agree with you on MC she threw Nick under the bus a few times. I hope he handled that off air.

    I am NOT feeling the cold weather booooo!


  3. BTW You look GORG in the white costume and just like your cousin that I know

  4. Of course I enjoyed this Halloween edition! LOL

    I cant wait for that Halloween candy to go on sale. My favorite candy of the season is candy corn (lmaoo @ you calling it torture). Girl, yum! I could eat a whole package by myself.

    I love all your celebrity costume ideas!!! I cant wait to see what you end up going to your party as.

    Dang, i remember those parties. Folks looked forward to them from all over the country! lol

  5. Ha! Yes I agree, I'll never be alone on halloween either! Nicki Minaj seems to be super popular this year! And yes, totally agree with the non-halloween tip...Mariah SONNED Nick and it was just so wrong.

  6. When we first bought our house, I was SO amped to get trick or treaters! We decorated and had about 55lbs of candy. Annnnnnnnnnnnd, no one showed up. Disappointment. I'm the opposite of you, I ONLY watch scary movies this time of the year, by myself.

  7. Never been too much of a fan of Halloween, definitely not the horror movies and other wild ideas, but I dig the costumes, costume parties and children enjoying themselves during trick or treat.

    Humorous photographs, looks like they bring back good memories.

    Lady Gaga is the perfect model for Halloween costumes.

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…

Frat Boys, Toxic Masculinity and the #METOO Movement

(scene from Spike Lee's famous School Daze)

A few weeks ago, my sorority held its national convention on New Orleans. Coincidently, another fraternity was also holding their national convention in New Orleans. Naturally, the jokes, mostly in jest, played upon the fact that these two groups, full of single, attractive and smart folks would be "on the prowl" and looking to "hook up" in the city known for its strong drinks, Southern heat, and hospitality. It was all jokes until nastiness decided to rear its ugly head.

You had men in the other fraternity sexually harassing and being obscene to my sorority sisters who just wanted to have fun and handle the business of the sorority (and network.. and yes.. meet men in a somewhat safe space).  There were stories of men groping women. Men saying disgusting things and then being like "Well fuck you then" if women rejected them. You would HOPE and think that college-educated men wouldn't act this way.


The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
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.
My life feels…
