Whole lot of randomness...

I've been away for a while getting my grind on, trying to make some money and then move me & the hubby down south. I'm thinking Houston, for some reason it's calling me and no it's not because of Paul Wall or Candy Paint. LOL!!! The cost of living down south is SWEET and the DC area sucks ass big time on affordable housing and what not. Plus, I love hot weather and I'm getting sick of this Mid-East weather. I was born in Houston, but I haven't been there since I could talk. So, it's all about getting money! And how am I doing that you ask? AUTOSURFING! Yeah, it's not a scam or a pyramid scheme, forget what you've heard! I might just do a whole post about autosurfing later.

Anyway, This morning I heard the word Bitch more times than a Busta Rhymes CD.
These 3 guys (HS age) on the train, were using it like it was getting recalled from the dictionary.
They used it against one another, talked about some girl they knew as a "bald headed bitch"
Oh and I forgot to mention ho, they used that a lot too.
And they had this girl with them who was looking up at them with this shit eating grin.
She was a little tomboy-ish, but I could tell she liked one of the guys.
Oh and they were also talking about guns and their boy who got locked up for brandishing one in broad daylight.

Good times....Good times....

Beyonce...Tard or Super Genius...

I've always been partial to thinking she was a bit of a 'tard.


Exhibits A through E:

Bey Quotes:

"Y'all are so cute and y'all talk so proper over here. I love England."

"The more successful I become, the more I need a man."

"I'd done a couple of sitcoms earlier on, but I wasn't very good in them, so I thought that meant I couldn't act."

"The great thing about McDonald's is that they have a lot of different things on the menu. I love their salads."

"You know what, I'm very attracted to someone who makes me laugh and is that charming. Really, I could be charmed by anyone. I'm just a sucker for somebody that is charming. "



Not only that, but she's got that killer southern drawl and regularly messes up words. I won't even remind everyone about the Oprah interview where she was asked what her favorite book was and she had NO RESPONSE. Oprah was even prompting her "it can be any book"; I mean she couldn't have even thought to say the BIBLE with as much as she espouses how much of a Christian she is.

Exhibits F & G:

"Who I am on stage is very, very different to who I am in real life. But I don't see that having a sexy image when you are on stage means that you don't love God. No one knows what I'm really like from that. I like to walk around with bare feet and I don't like to comb my hair. I'm always so glammed up and so diva on stage and that's what they see. People don't understand that... No one knows my personal relationship with God and it's not up to me to prove that to anyone."

"For me, it's about the way I carry myself and the way I treat other people. My relationship and how I feel about God and what He does for me, is something deeply personal. It's where I came from, my family, I was brought up in a religious household and that's very important to me. But I understand the mentality of people. I know that people judge others based on certain things. I know how celebrities really are. I've done it too. You meet people - rock stars, rappers, whoever - who you have seen on television and you go into their homes and they are regular people, just like everyone else."



But then I saw the video where she was being interviewed in Europe and I started to think, maybe this 'tard thing is just an ACT!

I can't find the video now, but it's out there!

A quote from a viewer: "She was snippy in the clips as a kid too....she was probably mean to the other girls at times. I remember reading Farrah's story in S2S and she talked about how Bey and Kelly put Michelle through so much. Note when the "I'm a good shy girl" act started coming out...right when chicks were being thrown out the group and everyone was saying Beyonce was a bitch"



BEYONCE 'TARD or NOT...YOU BE THE JUDGE

Gay TV; I LOVE IT!

Okay, with my Direct TV subscription I was introduced to the wonderful LOGO channel! I absolutely love it, love it I tell ya! Last week I was watching The Butch Mystique which dealt with Butch lesbians in the black community. It was so awesome and interesting to hear black butches talk about themselves and their communites and what they go through.

The next show I'm amped to watch is Power Lesbians which premieres Sat. Nov. 12th at 9pm EST. Synopsis: Set in Los Angeles, the characters all live in designer homes with palm-lined pools in their back yards, a lifestyle to aspire to. Because of their beauty, success and shameless ambition, they break all previous stereotypes. They've been identified as a new breed, the power lesbian. Join Rebecca Loos, our host, to find out if this new breed really exists, or is it just another Hollywood fantasy.

Now, what burns my britches is that in the preview I saw NO black power lesbians. WHY? Is it the inherent homophobia in the black community that keeps would be "power lesbians" in the closet? Is it because blacks as a whole have so little power anyway, that there are no black "power lesbians" because there are so few black "power females" in general? Someone answer this for me. I know that there exists femme black lesbians that must be doing their thang somewhere.

Okay, now onto what is my new favorite scripted series on LOGO....Noah's Ark!


Synopsis: Noah's Arc explores the lives of four black gay men in Los ngeles - Noah, Alex, Ricky and Chance - as they navigate complex romantic and professional relationships. Noah is a struggling screenwriter embarking on a relationship with a newly out man; Alex is an HIV/AIDS counselor struggling to overcome the seven-year relationship itch; Ricky is a trendy Melrose boutique owner who shuns commitment in favor of casual flings; and Chance is a college professor reluctant to commit to his new boyfriend, perhaps with good reason. Often described as a black gay "Sex and the City", Noah's Arc offers a refreshing look at gay life in the City of Angels - with a uniquely diverse twist.

My only beef with this show is that all of the main character's are femme black gay men, when we ALL know there are a lot of butch black men, but maybe I don't know the culture well enough and it's realistic that a group of femme black gay men would be friends, but not a group of femme and butch men would be friends. I don't know...someone drop some knowledge for me. Now many of the main characters love interests are butch black men, but that IMO further's the sterotypical gender roles that I know that all gay men do not live by.

To all my LGBT peeps, do you want to be CAST on a LOGO show?

It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you...

Hello all,

I've been so busy with work and my site that I haven't had time to come to blogger and muse on life. Well, I'm back and it's a celebration bishes! LOL!

I've been so busy with work lately, I just came back from Chicago for a Seminar my non-profit was doing and before that I was just in hardcore prep. mode for the seminar. Glad to say everything worked out very well and our next seminar in the spring will be in South Florida! YAY! For the next seminar I definitely want my husband to come out with me.

Although I was really busy (my days started at 7 a.m. and usually ended at 8 p.m.) I still didn't have a bad time. The saturday that I came out to Chicago, I actually got to meet up with one of the girls from my messageboard Diaspora Hair Care we went out to eat and had a lot of fun talking, she was definitely a cool chick.

Alright, that's it for now, but I just wanted to send out a smoke signal to let everyone know I am alive! :)

You can't be me, I'm a ROCK STAR!!!

Or at least that's what I'm feeling like today on my 26th birthday! I feel good! I feel really positive about my life and where it's going and what I'm doing and how I'm feeling and how I'm looking, so it's a GOOD DAY! Yeah, I'm at work right now, but even that's okay because hey I'm a year older, a year wiser, and so much has changed in the past year for the better.

I'm my own paparrazi!

Long time no blog...my birthday is tomorrow...etc.

Long time no blog


The annoying co-worker got fired. I wanted her to leave, but on her own accord. I hope she finds a new job soon because she's a single mom and she moved here about 5 mths. ago from NYC and doesn't even have any family here. I gave her a reccomendation of a good temp place I used to work for. Even if they don't have an assignment to send you out on, you get paid because you come to their office to work. It's cool.

Also with her being fired and them not having the forsight to hire anyone else yet, I'm answering the dayum phone. Hazards of being in an office of 6 full-time workers (now 5). I am also just officially ready to leave. This 9-5 thing isn't for me. So, I've been really working on my side "hustle" my haircare website and message board...SHAMELESS PLUG...Diaspora Hair Care!

Last week I went to two seminars; one was a full day seminar "Business Exchange: 2005 Tour for Success" given by Global Diversity Group. It was excellent and I learned a lot and got some good networking in. The second seminar I went to was on branding your business by William Maxwell of WM Graphics, that was really good as well.

My hope is to get my business running as a full time venture through mainly advertising by salons and hair care product companies, so anyone who's got the hook up...hook a sistah up!

My Birthday is Tomorrow


Tomorrow is my 26th birthday and I am so underwhelmed it's not even funny. I mean it really just crept up on me, because I didn't even realize until Sunday night that my birthday was this week. Tomorrow my parents are taking my husband and I out to eat for dinner, but other than that I don't really even know if I'm going to 'do" anything for my birthday. I don't even know if I want to "do" anything, scratch that...I definitely want my husband to take me out this weekend, but I have a feeling he won't. I know he's getting me something, but I have no idea what. He asked me what I wanted and I told him to surprise me, so I'm really in the dark. As a present to myself I think I'm going to get my hair done this weekend, but other than that I have no real plans.

Getting myself together...

Grown & Sexy Icon: Gabrielle Union


I turn 26 next month, I can't really believe it. Not that 26 is old or anything, I just sometimes feel younger, esp. since I don't drive. Which I plan to be remedying soon. But in the spirit or renewal I am going to be getting myself more together, or so I say. In what way you ask, I'm getting a gym membership so I can hit the gym at least 3 times a week. I'm a small chick (110 lbs & 5'2") and it's pretty much in the right places, but I want to keep it that way as well as tone up my thighs because it seems like that's where cellulite usually strikes people and I am not one for the cellulite. I also want to do more girly stuff like get my eyebrows arched and all that good superficial, but necessary stuff. So, age 26 is going to be the start of the Grown & Sexy Kenesha Movement!
