Sooo ... In case you guys don't know this about  me I say some pretty ridiculous things, pretty often. You ever see the  show, Kids Say the Dardnest Things? No, me neither since it was before my time, but I heard about it... but that's me .. So here are some snapshots of random things I said while on my Virgin Voyage to Cali with @HollywoodHeat and E-BFF @Jess_Dubb, my two favorite strangers (who I guess aren't strangers anymore)... "Its warm and gooey and you bite into it! How is he gonna make that analogy!!"   J:I can only wink when I'm up to something devious. J2: uh so what were u up to when you winked at that little girl?! J:  I wanted to scare her.   "That looks…

I'm all over the place in case you guys don't know. At any given time I can think of several different goals/tasks I'd like to accomplish but finding the time to address all of them is H.A.R.D. So, one thing I want to do is spend less time being idle, you know sitting around watching things you aren't interested in on TV. How do I accomplish this? 1. Canceling cable. Shocking Right? A mid-twenties girl with no cable. This decision was sparked by first thinking of expenses I could scale back on and then the idea that I can really watch almost anything online. A larger factor was that I'm rarely home as is and I DVR everything and with the addition of graduate school I will have even less…

So .. today over a nice delicious Portuguese BBQ meal me and a coworker had a discussion about women who are scandalous. Some of us often refer to them as "ain't shit" or "rachet" or just  plain "hoes". You know, women who make eye contact with a man and then blow him in the bathroom of the local VFW (yup women do this). So I said to this person, a wonderful woman, who is awesome. She's like my auntie. She's like 38 to my 25 and we just talk and she's great. But anyway, I said to her you know its women like this who make it so easy for guys to be disrespectful to women. It's women like this that are the reason that men can so easily not…

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6Cfn9ZtpAw *sigh* This song has been on my mind for a few days now. FEAR. How many people are ready and willing to admit what they fear?And I'm not talking, fear of heights and spiders. I'm talking when was the last time you thought about the fears Jazz Sull is talking about (by the way, when is her next album coming out??) I recently acqiured a composition notebook and labeled it 'The Book of Truths ... or my version of it' My first entry was about fear. Fear of letting go. I can be pretty lackadaisical about many things in life, and I am for the most part .. but I'm very guarded. I fear letting that guard down. Many people think they know me because I share trivial stories…

Why Wednesday? Gross Fat Chick

Lifestyle, Mis-Adventures
#thisbitch. Why oh why oh why!! Reasons like this and MTV's Jersey Shore are why I'm sometimes ashamed to be from New  Jersey. Who wants to weight 1000 lbs? Why is your LIFE goal to weight half a ton?? And why oh why oh why are people giving her shine? Why is she on GMA and radio stations and being offered a reality show?? If people stopped fueling the fires these idiotic people would stop these shenanigans. How does this woman, Donna Simpson, already hold the Guinness World Record for being the World's Fattest Mother. How is it OK that it took 30 medics to deliver her daughter via C-section?? She can't move more than 20feet before needing a break, but she wants to be fatter?? Can I smack this…

Best Tweet I've seen so far about the snow:  RT @bikesnobnyc: I wish people would stop saying "snowpocalypse." As a survivor of the 2Pacalypse I find it offensive <--- that is HILARIOUS!!! Whats not hilarious is that the NJ Governor declared a state of  emergency, but yet my job decided they still wanted to be open. #FAIL!! Did I mention that I finished the book "The Last Lecture?" I thought it was soo good! It was exactly what I needed in my life. I mean, it made me think about how in life so many of us give up on our ideals and settle in with its distant cousin reality. No  FAIR.  It really is true: Reality Shouts; ideals whisper. - Nathaniel LeTonnere, translated . Why is it that way?…

Because I'm easily amused, along with half the world, you must watch these videos and laugh! I'm highly sure that you will at least get a good chuckle if not a true LOL! From Candys Rayne httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jgl-vL-l33E&feature=player_embedded This is a fictional portrayal of a meeting between India Aire and (I swear this woman captures my soul ) Erykah Badu. Apparently it made the rounds on Twitter over the weekend, but I wasn't heavy in the world of tweets this weekend due to the holiday. I love this little text to speech cartoons. Very Very amusing!

Relationship Role Playing.. Do we really want to be equal?

Lifestyle, Mis-Adventures
Their is the timeless argument about men, women, and who pays for the date. Many women, myself included, feel a man should pay. Some men feel that women should pay. Especially in this age of Ms. Independent. Now, I work hard and I don't really care who knows it, but I'm not one of those women who boasts about how she has her own. In fact, every time I heard that song by Jamie Foxx, Fabolous, & Ne-yo I'd cringe when he said "she takes pride knowing she paid for it." Not that its a stupid bad thing but not everyone enjoys that. Personally I'm happier when I'm using something that was a gift, it makes me feel like someone loved me enough to buy me something they knew I'd…

****Warning:   MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!!! **** Everyone went to see this movie to see how bad Beyonce's acting would be, and any one who tells you differently is absolutely lying. Ok, maybe not everyone, because there were plenty of Beyonce stans in there going crazy, but definitely the majority.  I would have simply waited for the bootleg DVD copy, but my friend is one of the latter so we had to go -- on opening night at that. I wasn't really happy with that, but I can say, I was pleasantly surprised with how mediocre her acting was. She wasn't good, but she wasn't overly horrible either. So that says a lot. Plot: Truth be told, the plot wasn't anything we haven't seen before. Crazy woman sees unattainable (married) man and…

The “New” American Crisis

Fashionable, Mis-Adventures
Where did the money go? Isn't that the wonderful question plaguing us all in this "economical crisis" that the US is in? My question is slightly different, where are we getting the money is  my question.  Supposedly we are in a 5 trillion dollar deficit.   So where is the federal government getting these billions of dollars to "lend" the huge companies that are going bankrupt.  Where? Check it. Me and a friend are talking and we're like isn't it a little ass backwards to give the kapoot mortgage/loan companies money versus giving the public the money to be able to pay them back.  Isn't that what should be a focus? Why is this acceptable? I don't understand.  It's almost as if the powers that be got together and said, "Yes,…

I can't pretend I've been living under a rock for the past several weeks when in fact I have been quite tuned in to the mockery that has become of American Politics within the Republican Party.  I intently followed the Democratic convention and was quite impressed with the speeches I either watched or read online.  From Michelle Obama's introduction of her husband to Hilary Clinton's vow of "No way, no how, No McCain," and Obama's speech to end the convention.  I was inspired as a voter to see the unity that transpired there.  I mean who could forget the low blows that Hilary delivered in her race in the Primaries against Obama.  But in the end, if she believes in her party's beliefs she would have to support him, which…

So, I joined a contest on one of my fellow blogger site, A Phone Sex LIfe, so now EVERYONE has to go vote for me. My entry is under the name of Desire. In the contest you had to "Describe the ultimate sexual experience that anyone would love." And I think I did pretty darn well... I haven't read the other entries, but I will. And even if you don't vote for me, which you should, at least vote for someone so that it makes it interesting!! p.s. I need to find some cute catchy ending phrase, like how on Gossip girl, she's always like "XOXO Gossip Girl." Damn... any ideas.. Maybe I'll hold a contest and we can vote on the best phrase .. Interesting idea .. I'll definitely…

Underage Drinking

Underage Drinking

Mis-Adventures
So yesterday on my daily scroll of CNN I came across an article about some colleges and universities that hope to change the legal drinking age to 18 from 21. I think this is a bad, bad, bad idea. So I spoke to some of my friends and got their opinions on it-surprisingly many of them supported the idea, for a number of reasons. Many of them said that sure, since people sneak and do it or because if you can vote you can drink. If you can enlist you can drink. The universities that support this idea feel that by lowering the drinking age they will reduce instances of binge drinking. I have a counter argument for each of those proposed reasons for supporting the reduction in the drinking…
