Apparently last week Pathmark ran out of the standard grocery store plastic bags. Instead they laid out what were basically clear trash bags....TRASH BAGS FOLKS!!!! Newly untouched, unconsumed FOOD to be transported in TRASH BAGS!!! What mass grocery store runs out of plastic bags??? Has it really come to this???!!!! I mean DAMN...
So clearly I was in disbelief that they had resorted to this but outside of that I was truly embarrassed to be seen walking to the train or anything like that with my food in trash bags with knots at the top like my ass just came back from the food pantry...
I feel like I should now call Pathmark before going to pick up groceries to make sure they have traditional plastic bags..."Hi, do you have plastic bags.....with handles to put groceries in today??"...

I have to say, you know someone has truly reached iconic status when they are portrayed in drag. All those boys portraying Tina Turner now have a new persona to assume...Watch out now!!!

Let me reiterate....I understand the impact of global warming and the importance of preserving the planet and animals for future generations BUT seriously....F**K the polar bears right now. Why not have a 2min commercial about Darfur...Let's preserve some people.
Beyond that, the US is in a recession! RECESSION...and they want to air commercials about saving some damn bears??!!!
Their cute and cuddly...I get it....the cubs are starving....I get it....but seriously....SERIOUSLY??!! I'm sure there are thousands upon thousands of impoverished women (HUMANS for those who are slow) who, due to the recession, are not able to provide food for their children and therefore the KIDS (little humans for those who are slow) are starving!!!
Polar bears....gotta be kidding me.....

As a side note...I was going to CNN.com everyday, several times a day before the election to see the drama unfold. It was as good as (if not better) than going to celeb gossip sites. I'm sure other people were doing the same. This issue is exactly why people have to be sure to stay informed on what's going on in politics and in the world in general. The election isn't really over until Obama is sworn in. Clearly people will do ANYTHING to prevent him from taking the Oath of Office.
STAY INFORMED FOLKS!!!!

Hopefully everyone is up on GMail, GChat, YouTube, Blogger (And yes, I picked Blogger because I knew it was associated with Google)and Google Maps. Actually, if your not up on all of the above....stop reading my blog :0)
Right now I'm slightly obsessed with the internet browser, Google Chrome and Google Video chat. I feel like theres no reason for anyone to use any other browser. I'm not even going to go into detail about it...just download it.
Google Video Chat....WHAT!!!! Gmail account + webcam and mic = Freaking AMAZING.
Apparently the service is already offered through Skype (Who the hell even knows what Skype really is)But once you throw Google into anything, credibility (at least for me) quadruples. And lets face it, although Google has that creepy big brother thing going for it...you still trust that nobody will hack into your computer and steal your sh**!!! And by far the best part about everything is that its FREE!!!! HOOOOLLLLLLAAAA!!!!
Gotta love it.
So yea...get up on your Google folks. And I would go work for Google in a heartbeat....just sayin

Look at the guy in the upper left....LMAO...he doesn't really know why everyone is standing to clap....lol...he just stood and clapped cause everyone else did. "Stand for something or you'll fall for anything" I suppose. I'm just glad he's standing at an Obama rally rather than falling for the McCain lies.

Who really knows anythng about Palin??? Outside of the fact that shes from Alaska and is in her first year as a Govenor? Newsflash folks....AIN'T SHIT GOING ON IN ALASKA!!!!! There are like 2 people in Alaska...(apparently Palin and her husband). And let's really think about this...how FUCKED would the US be if McCain's old ass died in office or something and this chic with basically less expereince then Obama becomes President. You think it's a mess now...Just think about it...
I just think this whole thing is absurd. What makes it worst is that we the people of the US can be some superficial ass bastards. So for some the fact that he brought a woman on board is enough.
I'll be LIVID if McCain wins.

I might need to start a new list/countdown separate from "Reason's we ain't neva gon be free". A list that keeps count of celebrity crackhead or "crackish" behavior. Check out K-ci and Jo-Jo from Jodeci. I personally have been laughing and joking about K-Ci being a crackhead for years with friends (and if you didn't know, when Mary J. Blige first came on the scene she was dating K-Ci and did hella drugs)But who knew Jo-Jo was on the pipe too!!!??? Now, a friend did say to me "How do you know he was on crack, could have just been drunk". This is true. I don't have conclusive evidence that Jo-Jo was on crack but you have to admit it's crackish behavior.
Enjoy folks...just watch from 1:50 on. Love how they take the mic away but leave him there....CLASSIC

Somehow off the strength of the buffoonery that is Flavor of Love, VH1 has managed to usher in a new generation of black shows. What makes it soo bad is that the shit is REALITY. I LOVE reality TV (clearly) But VH1 is doing the MOST! Uncle Luke...Luke Cambell has a show....really...seriously....I love how he tried to tell his son he shouldn't be watching porn when right before the commercial break he was auditioning strippers for his adult films....
Kudos to VH1 for finding a niche and running with it. I'm just waiting for the tap dancing frog....OH WAIT.....I guess thats why New York's pic keeps popping up in the lower right corner.... :0p

My issues are as follows:
1. You know how on the Dave Chappelle show he would spoof well known "Mainstream (meaning white...i try to be pc every now and then)" TV shows by doing a "Ghetto" version. Watch the first trailer (not the full 10 min...trust me after 2 min you will be sooo irritated you'll turn it off). Does it not come across as a spoof. The shit just doesn't seem natural. And by that I'm not referring to the possibility of blacks being successful and having money as not being natural. The way they are talking just seems super contrived and unnatural.
2. Look at the second video (again, its like 10 min, I promise if you watch the whole thing you will be frustrated. When they show the house does it not look like a scene from "Cribs"??!!! I'm sorry...but I've watched all of the other "Real Wives of" Seasons and I don't remember them dedicating so much time to show how those people were living. The detail is ridiculous. It's a it offending only because they make it seem as if extravagant living is a rarity. Almost as if they have a huge ass house in the middle of the projects. UMMM....do they NOT live in a community with other big ass house just like the folks in the OC???!!! Why do they have to "cribafy" it. Their not rap stars...lol...they're business people like everyone else.
3. NeNe.....I mean her name speaks for itself. Like...who are the producers??? Do they not know that if you associate with anyone named NeNe its bound to be a ghetto experience. You can take the woman out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the woman. ***shaking my head*** This is why we ain't neva gon be free....
4. "What I want out of this divorce is a lump sump...some 7 figures...." direct quote from the trailer...****sigh**** PRE NUP...thats all I have to say.
Folks, it looks like its shaping up to be a ghettofabulous season. It's a little premature considering the show hasn't aired the first episode but I'm going to go ahead and say that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is reason #5,013 why we ain't neva gon be free... (To be confirmed Sept 16 when the episode actually airs)

Why would they think this helps??!!! I realize and understand that the New Yorker is a publication for people that are of a higher intellect. Yes there are those of us who are educated and can immediately see that the cartoon is meant to satrize the ridiculous rumors that surround the Obama campaign. However, Average Joe Schmoe living in Kalamazoo with an 11 grade education won't see all that. All he'll see is tonight's news with the cover of the New Yorker. Is he going to pay attention to whats being said...probably not. He's just going to go off the visual.
Although the intent was suppose to be good, it's just a bit irresponsible on the New Yorker's behalf. They can't realistically say that they didn't know the controversy the image would cause.
This, to me, just shows how racially insensitive America can be. Kinda like when your in college and there is a kid who hasnt been around a lot of black people and says stuff like "yo yo what up" everytime s/he speaks to someone black because s/he 1. thinks its funny and 2. thinks thats how black people really interact. When in reality its offensive.
And I know there will be people that will say "This isn't a black and white issue. People are overreacting and need to get just see it as a joke. If Hillary had been the candidate and the New Yorker had an illustration of her on the cover it wouldn't be a big deal". To that I say think about it like this...Will the New Yorker create an illustration to satrize McCain? Or better yet, why didn't The New Yorker satrize McCain first? And can we just admit that americans aren't that bright. Think of someone like Bush looking at that. I doubt he got the joke at first glance. Just saying....
It'll be intresting to see this unfold over the next few days. Oh and I'm mad they have Michelle looking like a Neo-Black Panther....don't make no damn sense!!!!

Thank you Jesse Jackson for confirming that we can never just be happy and supportive of each others success. The more disapponting side of this whole thing is that just when we thought there was finally a black leader to look up to and crush all the stereotypes, another black political leader has to step out and (as my mother would say) show his ass!!! WTF Jesse??!!! It's not like someone intercepted his phone call or someone happened to come across a stray email. Negro you are on LIVE TV!!!! SERIOUSLY...what's your life about. The song "Hi Hater" (youtube it) comes to mind when I think of the Jesse Jackson Obama relationship. Jesse is just mad that Obama has been able to do what he has always wanted to do but couldn't. Obama is living Jesse's American Dream. I'm sure that sucks. But damn Jesse...MAN UP!!!
Here's what he had to say for himself....

Maybe this is a Brooklyn only issue but I've been timing the trains over the last few days trying to figure out if bypassing the C for the A was actually saving me time or wasting time. Intuition was telling me that it was the latter but as I've said before I don't run on emotion so I needed proof.
I let the C roll out of the station. The A comes 2 min later. We were 2 stops ahead of the C and approaching the express station. There is a single track shared by the A and the C...basically both can't be in the station at once. We are at full speed...next thing I know we start slowing down. We stop. C goes past....
WTF folks. WTF!!!! Why even ride the express if a damn local train is going to be given priority in the tunnel. What sense does that make??? I really wanted to say outloud "Does anybody else see this shit??!! Am I the only person that finds this to be not OK". But I refrained because when you make outburst like that, people will look at you like your a mental patient. And for the record I do NOT know that from personal experience. I'm not that damn throwed off...yet :0)

Came across an article today that said that nearly 1500 payments were sent to the wrong accounts...yes I know thats a small number but with my luck my payment was probably sent elsewhere. And you know the gov is good for fudging the truth. So if their saying 1500 I'm gonna go ahead and say that its really like 50,000. Don't act like you don't know how our government rolls.
There are folks who have recieved 2 checks. TWO!!! WTF....WTF. I'm convinced someone has my money.
How is it that we live in one of the most advanced nations in the world, with the ability to track criminals from a satellite in outer space. But yet, our governement can't manage to properly electronically distribute checks. That blows my mind. All the freaking technology we have and they still cant do somthing simple. I can't deal. I really can't. Canada looks better and better everyday...

"Let's take a look at today's forecast....NYC can expect it to be a lot like Hell outside. If your not Satan, you may want to consider staying in doors"
So my landlord has a "rule" that air conditioners can go in the back of the apt but not in the front. I guess because it's a brownstone on a historical block she doesn't want to compromise the look of the building...I'm sorry but the hell with the look of the building...It's tooo damn hot to only have 1 AC and expect it to cool the entire place. Is she crazy??? I'm sure to make such a ridonculous request/rule has to border on inhumane in this heat.
A heat stroke is not sexy! And I pay waaaaaaaay too much for rent to be confined to my bedroom only.
I completely ignored her "rule" and my AC will stay in the front window until she says something. And when she does I'm going to ask her to come upstairs and sit on my couch and try to watch TV for an hour and see if her ass doesn't start to melt. Thats if she doesn't pass out all together....

Now I know there is something about it being held up IF you had your taxes done by a third party or if you got a rapid refund. Guess what....I don't fall in either one of those categories. WTF IRS...SERIOUSLY! Looks like I'll be calling on Monday.
I'm about to call Major World Ford Lincoln Mercury in Long Island City as well. Don't send me a piece of mail that says "Program Headquarters" in a check envelope so that it look like it just might be a stimulus check. WHY ARE THEY PLAYING WITH MY EMOTIONS??!!!
This is some nonsense....it really is. But then again we ain't never gon be free so I don't know why I thought we'd be rich. And yes...the IRS is Doing the MOST...

Gokhan Mutlu, says in court papers the pilot told him to "go 'hang out' in the bathroom" about 90 minutes into the San Diego to New York flight because the flight attendant complained that the "jump seat" she was assigned was uncomfortable, the lawsuit said.
Mutlu was traveling on a "buddy pass," a standby travel voucher that JetBlue employees give to friends, from New York to San Diego on Feb. 16, and returned to New York on Feb. 23, the lawsuit said.
Initially, Mutlu was told a flight attendant had taken the last seat on the plane, but then he was advised she would sit in the employee "jump seat," meaning he could have the last seat, the lawsuit said.
The pilot told him 1 1/2 hours into the five-hour flight that he would have to relinquish the seat to the flight attendant, court papers say. But the pilot said that Mutlu could not sit in the jump seat because only JetBlue employees were permitted to sit there, the lawsuit said.
When Mutlu expressed reluctance to go sit in the bathroom, the pilot, who was not named in the lawsuit, told him that "he was the pilot, that this was his plane, under his command that (Mutlu) should be grateful for being on board," the lawsuit said.
The aircraft hit turbulence and passengers were directed to return to their seats, but "the plaintiff had no seat to return to, sitting on a toilet stool with no seat belts," court papers say.
I sense some BITCHASSNESS!!!
Who willingly goes and sits in the bathroom of an airplane...SERIOUSLY??!! It's not like if he would have said "YEA RIGHT" or "NO" they would have kicked him off the flight...THEY WERE ALREADY IN THE SKY!!!
I feel like the judge should throw out the case on account of stupidity or allow him to win nothing more than a quarter. I don't understand where he came up with $2 million. He wasn't injured. He was already flying for free. What does he need $2 million for exactly...I'm sorry but nobody should become a millionaire for being a punk. WTF!!! It's to late to try and holler public humiliation. Your dumbass willingly sat on a toilet for 3 hours...
LMAO...I just got a mental picture. Oh how I wish i was on that flight....

I have my own theories and ideas about the stimulus check. Here's my favorite:
There really isn't a stimulus check instead it's sort of a mind game that the government is playing. Think about it...what would most people do if they were told they were going to receive at least $600 to use as you see fit and with no obligations to pay it back...
Most people have probably already planned on how they will spend the money. Some may have even made purchases in anticipation of receiving the check. But what happens if folks don't get the full amount they expect? Or worst yet, what if they don't get any money at all??? Individuals will fall into deeper debt and financial hardships. Meanwhile, the government would have successfully "stimulated" the economy.
I'm convinced I won't get more than $40 (yes FORTY...lol..I didn't forget a 0) if I even get that.
Remember folks...money doesn't grow on trees...or in this case a BUSH...

I am not an advocate of child abuse of any kind BUT had this child been in my family...They would have taken turns beating his behind while CNN was filming. I know his grandma tore his behind up when he got home...
"I wanted to do hoodrat stuff with my friends".....REALLY...SERIOUSLY...that takes the cake.
I'm not even gonna to get into the issue of children embracing the idea of being a "hoodrat" and that "it's fun to do bad things"...

What I'm doing right now (in case anyone is curious...or ever wanted to get a sense of just how off I really am) is watching mass mass on TV (apparently this is called Papal Mass). I'm amazed at 1...how many people are in attendance...2...how Yankee Stadium has been transformed into a temporary church. I wonder how many people (true catholics not weirdos like me) are watching this at home? And were tickets sold to attend Papal Mass? I have soo many questions. I feel like there should be a number I can call and get answers or at least a web address indicated during the telecast.
LOL...I was having a hard time following and then wondered why there weren't subtitles...then realized this isn't a foreign film nor was it intended for pure entertainment. Also realized that most other people watching this are probably already familiar with what is being said and don't need subtitles. Then I thought, what about followers that are hearing impaired? How the hell are they participating in this "monumental" event....
Yes folks, I am using closed captioning as subtitles to watch Mass live from Yankee stadium...and I'm not Catholic....clearly I have issues and nothing better to do with my Sunday afternoon....sigh.....
And how about the irony of Papal Mass falling on 4/20...
Did you ever notice that News Anchors use any excuse to become temporary commentators...seriously...anytime there is anything going on that is outside of typical news...they somehow turn it into something similar to a Football Game. I don't think it's necessary for them to be offering play by play comments on Mass...I might feel differently if their comments were actually answering some of my questions but that's not the case. They might as well start drawing circles and lines...
The mass has ended...go in peace...

“I am simply tired of these ridiculous names black women are giving their children,” said U.S. Federal Judge Ryan Cabrera before rendering his decision. “Someone had to put a stop to it.”
The rule applies to all black women, but Cabrera singled out impoverished mothers.
“They are the worst perpetrators,” he said. “They put in apostrophes where none are needed. They think a ‘Q’ is a must. There was a time when Shaniqua and Tawanda were names you dreaded. Now, if you’re a black girl, you hope you get a name as sensible as one of those.”
Few stepped forward to defend black women—and black women themselves seemed relieved.
“It’s so hard to keep coming up with something unique,” said Uneeqqi Jenkins, 22, an African-American mother of seven who survives on public assistance. Her children are named Daryl, Q’Antity, Uhlleejsha, Cray-Ig, Fellisittee, Tay’Sh’awn and Day’Shawndra.
Beginning in one week, at least three white people must agree with the name before a black mother can name her child.
“Hopefully we can see a lot more black children with sensible names like Jake and Connor,” Cabrera said.
His ruling stemmed from a lawsuit brought by a 13-year-old girl whose mother created her name using Incan hieroglyphics.
“She said it would make me stand out,” said the girl, whose name can’t be reproduced by The Peoples News’ technology. “But it’s really just stupid.”
The National Association of Elementary School Teachers celebrated Cabrera’s decision.
“Oh my God, the first day of school you’d be standing there sweating, looking at the list of names wondering ‘How do I pronounce Q’J’Q’Sha.’?” said Joyce Harmon, NAEST spokeswoman. “Is this even English?”
The practice of giving black children outlandish names began in the 1960s, when blacks were getting in touch with their African roots, said historian Corlione Vest. But even he admits it got out of hand.
“I have a niece who’s six. I’m embarrassed to say I can’t even pronounce her name,” said Vest, a professor at Princeton University. “Whenever I want to talk to her, I just wait until she looks at me and then I wave her over.”
Cabrera’s ruling exempted black men because so few of them are actually involved in their children’s lives....
Before folks start getting all upset and offended or applauding the Federal Judge...this isn't a real article. http://thepeoplesnews.wordpress.com/2008/03/02/federal-judge-enough-with-the-stupid-names/
Thanks Toya G.

Now because I love juice soo much I can be easily swayed into drinking just about any kind. So even though I knew better ...I got a glass...THE SHIT IS GROSS. Do not drink Tang under any circumstance. I wouldn't serve this to my enemy. If it was the last thing in the world to drink, my ass would just be dehydrated. Seriously....WTF. It's gross. I have a headache from a few sips and I'm pretty sure if I drink the entire glass I'll have a seizure....
Just say "NO" to Tang folks.....
I wonder if they'll take suggestions for the fountain drink of the week. Would Red Kool-Aid be an innapropriate suggestion.....I know, I know....this is why we ain't never gon be free....

*”Your not gonna believe…”
When I encounter said hot ghettomesses I typically say “That’s reason number xyz why we ain’t never gon be free…or simply “That’s why we ain’t never gon be free”.
Folks, allow me to get a tad deep for a moment…blacks were physically enslaved for a few centuries followed by additional decades of inequality, disenfranchisement, and oppression. The Civil Rights Movement helped us gain equality...GREAT. But folks, we still really aren't free. We are now mentally oppressed by, for the most part, our own doing. Of course not everyone is mentally oppressed but many are ruining it for others. And yes these fools know better.
So, moving forward (client correspondence phrase...clearly), if you see a post that simply says Reason #xyz, know that it ties back to this post.
And don't get it twisted...I love my people...but sometimes...we're doing the most...

I feel like from early childhood through around graduation from undergrad there is a lot of effort put into making sure that individuals have some sort of guidance on what to expect with each stage of life, what to do what not to do...basically a heads up along the way. Theres all sorts of TV shows and stuff. Think about how much you learned from Sesame Street (some of which you can kinda still apply to life in some way or another)...remember after school specials...ALL SORTS OF STUFF...College, I'm sure everyone had some sort of orientation program with some crazy ice breaker to make everyone feel like a fool...and then everyone had an academic advisor that literally helped you plot out your road to graduation.
Then you graduate....and I feel like everyone is good through their first job (I'm sure the academic advisor and "career services" helped get your resume in check and pointed you in the right direction with your newly bought suit, a gift from a family member no doubt). I hope this isn't just my reality...
Then you hit 24...been working for 2-3 years and shit gets crazy. Chances are you start re-evaluating all sorts of aspects of life....what you do...who you are...where you are...friends...EVERYTHING is up for evaluation....
I'm sorry...where are the shows...the advisors (a therapist helps but that doesn't count in my book)???
I really feel like somebody should have given some sort of a heads up. And saying..."your young...you'll figure it out later" or "You have your whole life to deal with all this" is NOT acceptable answers. Hell.....its not even advice. Its just stuff older people say because it seems like the right thing to say.
I kinda want to ask my parents why they didn't give me some sort of warning...but then again at 25 my parents had 5 yr old me (talk about a crisis...lol..j/k...i was an angel......with devil horns....) so they really didn't have the "luxury" of a crisis of any sort so maybe they didn't have these problems.
Luckily...I figured out who I am last year...friends I'm good...LOVE NYC (specifically Brooklyn)...so I'm good there....
Career......CRISIS. Need a TV...a book...a coach...probably a prayer... It's really difficult to realize that your first choice career may not have been the best choice. Especially when you consider the time and money spent in college to help get you closer to said career. And then the additional time spent honing skills for and in said career to continue to succeed.
So yea folks...I'm lost. I don't know what I want to do with myself. Any suggestions....? I'm drawing blanks....

Well ok, maybe you dont know me. Maybe you dont have the privilege of knowing a ni**a like me that's found a way to maintain his cool while everyone else is succumbing to the plague of button ups and hard bottoms. But Sllim does, so thanks to her maybe you can get to know me. Or maybe not. Really all depends on how I'm feeling at the time.
The only blazers I'll ever wear are Military. The only time I wear a button up is to a funeral, to church (but I never go), to job interviews, and if its laundry day and I dont have shit else clean.
But you want to know whats even more ignorant about me? I'm the dude that most women want to meet. Smart but not a fuckin geek. Cool but not so cool that he's stuck in the hood. The dude that has a job but knows what he wants out of life and realizes that his job is not his life.
But you probably just wrote me off as the ni**a that was too cocky to speak...or the one who was too stuck in his own world to care about anyone else...or the one that would never settle down because it's not in his character. Well...maybe you're right. But what if you're wrong. Will you be able to live with yourself? Because I know who I am...do you?
I'm the dude that's doin the most...hahahaha I mean doing more than you. And I dont mean literally doing Ms. Doing The Most either you nasty nosy motherfu**ers...hahahahaha
how was that Sllim? Do I get to write up here again?

And yes the picture is REAL (you know I aim to make this blog the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth).
Thomas Beatie is a transgender male and he's 22 weeks pregnant (he's due July 3, 2008). Thomas still has a vagina, but he's legally male. He shares his life with his legal wife, Nancy. Thomas gave a first person account to the Advocate (full story can be found at http://www.advocate.com/exclusive_detail_ektid52947.asp) on how he came to be pregnant with a baby girl: "Ten years ago, when Nancy and I became a couple, the idea of us having a child was more dream than plan. I always wanted to have children. However, due to severe endometriosis 20 years ago, Nancy had to undergo a hysterectomy and is unable to carry a child. But after the success of our custom screen-printing business and a move from Hawaii to the Pacific Northwest two years ago, the timing finally seemed right. I stopped taking my bimonthly testosterone injections. It had been roughly eight years since I had my last menstrual cycle, so this wasn’t a decision that I took lightly. My body regulated itself after about four months, and I didn’t have to take any exogenous estrogen, progesterone, or fertility drugs to aid my pregnancy."
He says that not many people in his community know about his pregnancy, although I'm not really sure how thats possible if 1..this appeared in a National publication...2...or unless he hasn't and plans to not leave his house for the next few months. He said they have "begun experiencing opposition from people who are upset by our situation. Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs. Health care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife. Receptionists have laughed at us. Friends and family have been unsupportive; most of Nancy’s family doesn’t even know I’m transgender."
Thanks for the suggestion, Nate! America misses you!

Now, many of you will think the next statement is absurd and I have received intense criticism about what I'm about to say...I don't like ice cream or any other sweetened milk based product (this includes smoothies made with milk or frozen yougurt and milkshakes). I know, I know...I'm a girl I'm suppose to be able to eat a gallon and LOVE every cold, milky, melty spoonful. Nope...I'll pass.
So back to Pinkberry, I've heard that its not ice cream (BTW Coldstone Creamery is a bonafide waste of money...just go to Baskin Robin's or Dairy Queen...tried and true for years and sooo much cheaper. I've heard comparisons to TastiDelight (Don't really know what TastDelight is either). But the most ridiculous thing I've heard about Pinkberry is that their are only 2 flavors. Come on folks....seriously....SERIOUSLY...2 Flavors?!?!? People are going crazy over 2 damn flavors. Even Pepsi and Coke come in more than 2 flavors. I think people just really get caught up in the hype. It's really kinda sad. If I follow the 2 flavor model and the unknown factor of Pinkberry, I'm pretty sure I could bottle air and sell it to the masses for a ridiculous price and make millions (I wrote it here so if anyone steals that I will sue :0))
Just so we all are clear this is not a criticism of anyone who enjoys and is addicted to Pinkberry. Please continue to indulge. Just someone please tell me what the hell it is and what makes it soooo freaking good. And the answer better not have the word SOY anywhere in it...

"Don't ever do that again! Now get off the train!"
Couple of people on the train say "DAMN!" or "OH SHIT!"
Next thing you know the woman laying on her back is up...disoriented...but up. She starts swinging her purse. Other woman gets off the train and starts beating the woman swinging the purse's ass on the platform.
Now I neglected to mention that the train was crowded with several ghetto individuals....yup..Loud and Rowdy. So they're at the door watching this fight. Doors start to close. A man with gold teeth (I'm soooo serious...lol) starts yelling
"Don't let the doors close...this ain't her stop she has to get on".
The other ghetto folks start saying:
"Come on Ma, you got her...get on...hurry up". Mind you they don't know the chick fighting. She gets on...doors close...train pulls out of the station.
So basically at Broadway/Nassau there was some poor chick that got ambushed on her way out of the train. Probably has witnesses but the perpetrator is gone.
ON THE TRAIN...the loud and rowdy bunch are hype. Again...they don't know this chick. And she's not loud and rowdy...she's just trying to read her People and calm down. Finally somebody asked her what happened that caused all that to go down...
As she was stepping onto the train the woman was walking off. She bumped into the woman and said excuse me BUT the woman proceeded to shove her out of the way. So she grabbed her by the back of her head...pulled her back onto the train by her hair and basically threw her to the ground...UNBELIEVABLE...

I can't understand why people hit "reply all" when they have a specific comment to the sender or the last person that made a comment when their comment and/or question has nothing to do with the subject of the email.
If what you have to say pertains to the whole group... AWESOME. If not, there is a good chance that everyone else 1. doesn't need to know...2. doesn't want to know...3. couldn't care less.
I tried to bite my tongue...I really did...

"Sure I'll go on a cruise with her....doesn't mean anything and she can pay for all of it"
I wish a N***A would! I'd be DAMNED if I spend my hard earned money to pay for a cruise for someone that doesn't mean anything. This isn't even about emotions, expectations, sex...IT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO DAMN SENSE!!!! Really, male or female who the hell is going to spend money to take someone on vacation that they aren't feeling....seriously. I swear this is a quick way to get cut and I don't mean cut in the figurative sense.

So while at dinner last night, my cousin was explaining to me this situation going on involving Florida, Michigan and the Democratic National Convention. I did some background reading to try to be sure my facts were at least half way straight before starting this post. I know folks tend to be sensitive about politics especially this race. Heaven forbid I misrepresent a detail. If by chance I do get something wrong...understand that the point of this posting is more for others to seek more information. I know my ass is not nor will I ever be a political analyst.
Anyway...so apparently in January Michigan and Florida took it upon themselves to hold primaries before the DNC had scheduled them to. As a penalty it was decided that those votes would not be counted. Everyone, including all 3 candidates agreed with this and also agreed to not campaign in those states. The race kept rolling, Edwards drops out and Obama springs ahead of Hilary. As we all saw Hilary started getting desperate (remember the pics of Obama in Muslim garb). Then she starts campaigning in Florida. UH...didn't they agree NOT to campaign in that state (the article I read on yahoo.com quoted Hilary saying she would "find a way to seat the delegations from Michigan and Florida.") The DNC has started talking about possibly counting the votes from January or (even worst) allowing those states to vote again. I forgot to mention that Hilary "won" those early primaries.
So folks a few things to consider:
1. Is the DNC trying to right a wrong with a wrong?
2. Has the DNC had in mind who they wanted as the Democratic nominee all along and the last few months has been nothing but a show. And now the DNC is scared that without these 2 states their preferred may not win.
You be the judge. http://news.yahoo.com/s/thenation/20080306/cm_thenation/1295132

The fact that Clinton won last night added to the drama and suspense of the race. The media has a tendecy to do the MOST and ride a story till the wheels fall off. But this is one of the few things on TV that doesn't get old. Maybe other people are over it but I want to watch, I can't not watch.
Just a few things to note:
Hillary Clinton reminds me of a high school principal. If you ever had a female principal you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Not a soccer mom AT ALL. Always in a suit of some sort. Intimdating in a weird way. Like if you were to pass her in a hall she'd make you feel like your were guilty of something even if you hadn't done anything. And when you ovehear her say "My husband" or "My daughter" you find it hard to belive that she's married and wonder who the hell would marry her and knowingly conceive a child. Then wonder what the child could possibly look or be like. Am I the only one that had these experiences in high school...?
As far as Obama, he embodies everything that comes to mind when you think of the persona and demeanor of a president. Dignified, strong presence, the ability to be friendly but also convey that he means business at the same time. Everyone is familiar with the "Yes We Can" video right.....have you seen The Nutty Professor....remember when Professor Klump is sitting on the couch watching the exercise video...remember when he starts stomping his foot and yelling "YES I CAN!!!!". Thats what I'm reminded of everytime I hear that slogan. I tried to find the youtube video but apparently the world is more fascinated with the fart scene from the Klumps....sigh....

People just say and do dumb stuff. I really have a low tolerance and patience for stupidity. I could use it while at work (Monday status...I would hit people for GP)...on the train (screaming,crying babies...smack the mom and the child)...slow walking NYC tourists...(Welcome to NYC and walk faster biatch)...
Seriously though people are daft beyond belief. Think about all the stupidity you encounter day-to-day. Couldn't you benefit from having a nerf bat on hand???
Perhaps I need counseling and not weapons.....whatevs...I can't be bothered. Violence may not be the answer but its a damn good solution. GIVE ME A BAT!!!
PS...I just got an email that says "Please consider the environment before you print this email"....WTF...I'll print what I want, when I want...as a matter of fact I'm going to print it right now out of spite. Stuff like that pisses me off. Thats like a dunkin dougnuts bag saying something like "consider the homeless before you throw out that half a bagel"....

"Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by a virus. It's spread by putting something in one's mouth (even though it might look clean) that is contaminated with traces of fecal matter from the infected person."
FECAL MATTER FROM THE INFECTED PERSON....
Here's the link if you want to read the article
1. Most of the employees don't even have kids
2. Half who do have kids don't even live in NYC
3. The half that do live in NYC and have kids send them to private school
Anyway, how crazy is it that meterologist, people who's job is to predict the weather, can be wrong 75% of the time and not be fired???? I do realize that a great deal goes into their predictions and that meterology is a science but really think about it. The only time of the year that they have a chance at being right is summer...like July and August. Honestly we could all be meterologists at that time...its pretty obvious that its gonna be sunny. If there are clouds...sunny and partly cloudy. Gray clouds...Sunny with a chance of rain. I will cut them slack given that global warming has the planets climates all f***ed up. I'm sure that does make their chances of being right about the weather highly unlikely. That brings us back to the title of the blog...How is it a legit career path. Seems like to me it may be on a downward spiral.

You've all heard the statement before "Women are unstable creatures". Not true. Women are just flat out emotional. Some moreso then others. I'm not very emotional...I operate on unadulterated logic. Chances are if I can't make something make logical sense...I'm not doing it. Not true for the average female. They are running on pure emotion. It can be dangerous and should not be F***ed with (I could give detailed examples of emotion gone wrong...but I'll refrain).
I'm sure all of the men are shaking their heads in agreement but still thinking "This is not wisdom...I know this already"...riiiiiight.
Somehow when it comes to sex...yall completely forget that females tend to be emotional. Its all fun and games....until she catches feelings. Especially if its good sex. Please note the equation below (some of you should get it tattooed on your hand...kinda like an adult cheat sheet...)
Emotional Woman + Good Sex = CRAZY or simply EW + GS = C
I don't know why this is sooo hard for yall to understand. Usually sex is not just sex to a female. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you can probably get away with having sex (good sex) with a typcal female about 3 times (within a short time frame) before she begins to catch feelings. If you space it out over 3 months....you can possibly get a few more in but this is not guaranteed.
And fellas...if it is good...please do not be fooled...its sex that the woman is obssessed with...not you...sorry :0(
I hope this helps all who have been confused recently. Ladies, I hope your not mad...yall tend to do the MOST...this is for the best.
Be mindful of what your doing in the bedroom folks....

"So Sllim, I saw that your status on Facebook is 'no longer single'....."
Clearly, I had to get my mind right quickly and remember that I am at WORK and that although this broad has decided to be inappropriate that I should not follow suit. So I just say...
"I simply streamlined my profile. Thats all." "I didn't designate any other status option. Just removed that from my profile all together"
This folks, is why I hate Facebook. It enables nosey-ass people to be just that...NOSEY! I've actually considered deleting my Facebook profile for a while. If I knew my senior year of college what I know now about Facebook, I would have NEVER created a profile. It started out as this great "college-only" community. It was all fun and games. Then, suddenly my younger sis, who's in HS, was on...then my old boss...now my client's have profiles. NOT OK! I never had a Myspace page and Facebook without a doubt has become 10 times worst. It's not even fun anymore!!!
And then what makes it sooo bad is that people really take the internet, especially social networking sites, WAAAAAY tooo seriously. stupidGENIUS has an excellent post on his blog about this http://youngplusignorant.blogspot.com/2008/02/people-take-internet-way-too-seriously.html

I noticed a welt on my left leg Monday morning in the shower. I'm thinking "hmmm...thats strange...I wonder what that came from". The only thing I've done differently recently was use a new lotion and add an electric blanket to my bed. I'm thinking maybe I'm having an allergic reaction to the lotion or maybe because the blanket was packed away it contianed bed bugs. But the welt didn't itch. So I'm like...maybe i bumped it and dont remember and let it go. Tuesday, I wake up and now theres 1 on my right thigh. Now I'm slightly concerned.
I get to work and share the story with a friend. We talk about the size, shape and location of the welts. I mention the lotion and blanket thing. As we talk and I reveal to him that I dont have the electric blanket OVER me and between sheets and other blankets....noo that would be too much like right...instead I have the electric blanket UNDER the fitted sheet and I'm lying on it (Yup...I'm doing the MOST). He concludes that these aren't bug bites or a rash but are burns.... The "welt" I found on my left thigh followed a night of sleeping on my left side. The "welt" on my right thigh appeared after sleeping on my right side.
Yes folks...I've managed to turn my bed into a plush version of a George Forman Grill and my dumbass is basically an oiled down chicken cutlet! I've done this in past winters with no problem. But now the blanket apparently has a short...sooooo...I basically put it on high fall asleep and god only knows what kind of heat variations happen while I sleep like a log in an empty forest.
The blanket has been removed...

I'm going to try not to mention friends in posts. Should I have to, they will also have pseudonyms.
Yes, I know stupidGENIUS...unfortunately. I've gotten a few questions asking if I know him and who he is. FYI...His comments should never be taken seriously...lol...
Keep reading...I'll keep writing.
Remember its Sllim...

Just waiting for the world's most talented crack-head....Amy Winehouse. She wins awards and performs at shows but yet we continually tell children to "Say no to drugs".....Am I the only 1 that sees a problem with this???

You've been warned. This post isn't funny...AT ALL
I went for dinner and drinks in Union Square last night with 2 friends. On the walk to the train, a young man approaches me...standing a mere foot away...
"Aye Ma, can I ask you something?"
I don't answer.
"Can I hit that ***** from the back...?" (said in the same manner as someone would say "Hi my name is...")
Look of shock
1 friend says "Is he serious..?"
I say "Hell NO!"...we keep walking...trying to pick up speed
young man proceeds..."I mean, I'm just saying I'd love to feel those *** cheeks smack against my thighs"
Keep walking....trying to ignore...pick up speed
"I'm saying...I can't ****?"
I yell back, "YOU CAN GET SOME ******* COUNSELING!"
he's not done yet..."If I go to counseling, can I **** after"
I yell back.."Do you realize how ******* disrespctful you are??? I've never had anyone say anything this disrespectful to me!"
He yells something unaudible...friends and I keep walking....stop to reflect on the 2 min verbal assualt....

The story I just thought of required another post immediately. Last Friday I had soup and a grilled cheese delivered for lunch due to inclement weather. Ate the grilled cheese left the soup on my desk to eat throughout the day...or so I thought. I leave my office for I swear no more than 5 min. When I walk back in my officemate is standing at MY desk with paper towels drying wetspots....Folks....there is no logical reason for why she would be over here. We don't share anything...not a stapler, not tape, NOTHING. So I say "What are you doing?" she says back in her thick bulgarian accent (sounds kinda like Russian...filled with sounds as if spit is going to fly out at any moment) "Oh I hacd water and I tripicked and it spilled over here".............again.....we sit a good 3 feet away from each other....there's nothing on the floor for her to trip over. There is a chance that she could be a clutz but since we've shared an office nothing similar has happened. And when I look her desk theres no cup or mug....where the hell did this water come from...is there a leak in our ceiling that I don't know about.. I don't really buy her story but I let it go....UNTIL a strong scent of soup starts to exude from my desk.......I lean down and sniff 1 of the still damp spots on a piece of paper on my desk.....The smell is coming from that spot and a few other damp spots on my desk....I NEVER ATE THE SOUP. So how folks did soup get from the container to the paper? Why was she standing at my desk....YUP...she was EATING MY SOUP...I don't have definitive proof...but all evidence leads in that direction.
Who does stuff like that??? Why would anyone think it was ok to go to someone elses desk in broad freaking daylight, in the middle of the day and sneak soup....
I'm sure there will be those that think I'm drawing wild conclusions. But chick has been know to steal food. I just never thought anyone would be so bold as to attempt something like this when there is a good chance they'll get caught.
This folks is what I deem DOING THE MOST!
So the straw that broke the camels back or the thing that threw me overboard was last nights episode of "Making the Band 4" and Diddy's...I mean Sean Jean's* "Bitchassness" speech. This was a CLASSIC moment in modern day TV folks. Nobody publicly humilates people like Mr. Combs*. I mean, Bentley would not be known by anybody if it weren't for his years of public humiliation as a "man servant". I'm sorry but is it just me or does Bentley shows signs of the disease that Diddy* so eloquently spoke of last night. And ummm...at 1 point was he NOT working for Bad Boy???? So the phrase "There will be no bitchassness at Bad Boy" is kinda invalid. Or maybe thats why Bentley is no longer Puffy's* "Man Servant" or maybe this "mandate" is a new 1 for Bad Boy. Hmmm....BUT the next time you watch "Making the Band" and there is a scene in Diddy's* office try to see the picture that is on the bureau to the front and right. Take a look at that and then let's talk about "bitchassness"....
All in all...the speech inspired me to let go of my own "bitchassness" and start this blog. After all "Bitchassness is hurting our community! It's a contagious sickness..."
I'll try to write often...Hope you enjoy....
* I wish I had the luxury of changing my name every 2 years or as I evolve from 1 person to the next...which oddly sounds like a mental disorder but thats a topic for another day.
