A Monday Mind

Football is magic. Pizza is magic. Beer is magic.

I'm catchin' flicks this coming weekend y'all! The Family That Preys, The Women, and Righteous Kill all open on Friday. Can't wait!

Speaking of movies, is Laz Alonzo gonna be a breakout star after his performance in Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna? Looks like it to me.....

A.ndrea K.ramer, who was once a poster child for the plain janes has stepped up her fab game once again this season, while my girl P.am O.liver missed her weave chair appointment once again. Damn, I swear she's one of the baddest in the sideline reporting game, but she could use a glam squad (no hate). M.ichelle T.afoya is my girl too. All of them are incredible, actually.

Will eating fresh baked spinach and swiss croissants and having a glass of bubbly every Saturday morning contribute to the increase of my rumpshaker (by the way, that's a good thing for me)? If so, I'm on a roll, 'cuz it has become a weekend ritual. The cute, young, tender French boy who sells the croissants at the Farmer's Market doesn't help either......

So, my cousin and I give Game's CD top billing over Wayne's joint. Besides, I barely understand what Wayne is saying half the time.

This natural hair care is no joke, but DAMN my hair feels good! I'm always lovin' up on my scalp. LOL!

If you have never stepped before, find a class. There is a Steppin' community in most major cities these days. Chicago is sharing! You will love this dance.

Serena Will is that deal! Congrats on the Open victory and welcome back to the number one spot babygirl, you are overwhelmingly deserving.

......as for the opponent Jelena Joke-a-witch, get some tact about yourself. You used your first appearance at a Grand Slam event to make an absolute fool of yourself with your immature antics and poor sportsmanship, during AND after the match. For a minute I thought commentator Mary Carillo was gonna go upside your head with her microphone.

While I'm checking folks for their behavior, I would be completely remiss if I left out Serena's father's.....ummmmmm, lady friend. Her romp on the tennis court after the match was uncalled for and borderline embarrassing. You were not at the Rucker.

I stopped by theybf.com to check out pics from the VMA's red carpet and my question is this......"what's wrong with people?"

When are Squirrel's gonna pull their pants up? I DON"T WANT TO LOOK AT YOUR ASS!!!!

When are Squirrel's gonna take full rows of jewelry out of their mouths? Is that hygienic?

I love the new Swiffer commercials with the "baby come back" mariachi theme. Hilarious.

The gov-ment just took over Freddie and Fannie? Who's next? When will we rebound from all this shht? I feel sorry for our children.........they will look back in history and say we were irresponsible and spineless for allowing the current administration and the, "whichever way the wind blows" media bend us over at will.

Say-Rah Paid-lin is giving ONE damn interview?? Are you kidding me? We're really going for this? WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!! We need to be on her raggedy, lying tail like they were and still are on B. Rocka.

My Auntie Day, back home in The Chi, said she cooked some collard greens yesterday. Now, I want some. But, they take SO long to cook, properly.

F.OX News is scary. I repeat, F.OX News is scary.

I'm trying my hand at an indoor plant. I got an orchid. Cross your fingers.

Does any one watch A.rmy W.ives? Is it good? I need a new show.

What are you reading these days?

ARE YOU REGISTERED TO VOTE?

P.S. When I use period's within words, it is deliberate and serves a purpose. I'm not crazy. :)

*Song Yet Sung by James McBride (only word is FABULOUS)

*Verrrry interesting take on the ecological war of words and the state of "going green" on a planetary scale, Michael Crichton's State of Fear, if anything read the author's message and bibliography (extremely enlightening). It's fiction w/tons and tons a factual references.

*Walter Mosley's Tempest Tales, I absolutely love that man and he CONSISTENLY releases his books through BLACK publishing houses (in B-more and Chicago)

*Quincy Jones' autobiography "Q", chiiiiild, we ain't doin' NUTHIN' NEW nowadays.

*Casanegra by Blair Underwood and some contributing authors, cute, light piece of fiction.

The novel, Miracle at St. Anna was so good I really, really, really hope the movie will hit the mark. I am sure Spike can do it!

Natural hair is no joke. Some days you love it, others not so much. It's been three years for me and I still vacillate between going back to the relaxer, especially when I see a banging short coiff ;-)

I have been on this reading kick lately to occupy my time...LOVE BITES!!!!! (That's all I am going to say at this time). I read Dirty Red & Still Dirty this weekend by Vicky Stinger.(my life is so boring right now). They both were excellent. I am reading God Don't Like Ugly by Mary Monroe. My other most recent read was Insatibale by Allison Hobbs I can't wait to read the sequeal Climax. Happy Reading!
