Why in the hell???

I don't even have the words to say WHY TH F$%K would someone even think to get this as a baby shower cake. All I can do is shake my damn head and say SMH.

If someone thought this would be funny and got this for a shower I was at, there would be many bad words heard coming from my mouth. That is all.

HOT MESS!

Thanks Logan for the post that got me out of my slump!

You ought to know.....

I thought about this when my driver said how he really liked my rain look....that Mario is quite the charmer. And now that all this dreaded rain is over ?I thought I would share these things about me...

100 percent humidity will Neva find me without my Jackie O look. Designer scarf on head and huge glasses. My hair is natural and when I choose to blow it out I need not worry about the foolishness.

I always wonder why people call it the Jackie O look? My momma rocked that look like a star. Clearly Jackie hung with some fashionable Black women!!

Wellies are a must!! Nothing makes me angrier than WET feet. When I see people with flip flops on in the AM knowing full well its going to rain all day.

The rain makes me blue. like crawl under the covers, pull them over myhead, cry blue. One of my bestie use to get so concerned in the spring he would bring me sweets.

Thunder and Lightening will never find me outside NEVER. I will turn off all the unnecessary electricity and retreat to my bed.

I had a dream in college that lightening is how I would die so count me ouuuutttt in a storm.

I live by NY1 and ABC weather reports. You will often find me running through the house one shoe on trying to catch the weather on the 1's. And not just the 6:01 but the 6:11 6:21 etc

I'm not a fan of raincoats. I own one because I'm an adult but personally I prefer my jean jacket.

Rain = me not matching!! My wellies are multi colored stars so unless I'm in black I usually won't match but who cares its raining!!

I normally do not like rain at all, but there is something sexy about summer rain. Turning off the AC and opening the windows. I thank Carl Thomas for that song.

Why don't you have a seat over there?

Am I the only one that knows when you see this dude, you are in TROUBLE?!!!

Last night I watched Dateline's investigation series with Chris Hansen, no it was not the infamous (and my favorite, sickening)" To Catch a predator", it was titled "How lucky can you get". It seems that people are being scammed when they have winning lottery tickets. The state of California is investigating stores that are licensed to sell lotto tickets for stealing the winnings from people. How you might ask? Well when you take your scratch off tickets up to see if they are a winner they will tell you No after scanning it. Then send one of their relatives to cash in the ticket. LOVELY!!! They sent out undercover lottery employees with tickets they knew were winners and though many stores were honest tons were NOT. And here is with the hilariousness starts:

The under cover agents are video taping and in true Chris Hansen form he enters politely and ask the for the person caught on the tape. He tells the person that he has videotape of them scanning the tickets, telling the agents no winners (4 tickets are handed to the clerk), and lastly evidence provided by the Lottery commission that shows when the ticket was scanned, AND STILL THE PEOPLE WON'T CONFESS (and all of them were sentenced to a range of 3-6months in jail). As I laughed at the foolishness I wondered do these people not know who Chris Hansen is? To Catch a Predator was on EVERY NIGHT for a month at one point. oh you don't watch the news, HELL he was featured in a South Park Episode!

One woman who crafted an entire story about finding 4 tickets in the parking lot, and then taking them to another store only to find out there was a $1,000 winning ticket... OK where is the logic in that if you OWN a store that sells Lotto. Then she was pissed when she realized they had not come there to give her the money ( CA lotto does not deliver checks, you have to pick them up) saying this is BLEEP BLEEP. HIGHLARIOUS.

Many states have decided to follow CA's lead and also investigate (mainly because there is money being denied them by these crimes) but not the great city of NYC. Look at what the Lottery commissioner sent to all lotto machines when Dateline looked to investigate NY lotto:
And now the NY lotto may as well just go ahead and confess because Chris Hansen is putting them on blast. HAHAHA

If I said something under my breathe to the wrong person and I saw Chris Hansen walking down the same side of a busy streets NY street I'd just confess. I mean really people!

If you take the A Train... you'll find out NYers are kinda crazy

I rode home on the crazy train this evening I saw the guy on the platform and his tight sweats and skippies (are those things making a comeback) talking to himself and figured I was in for a laugh and boy was I right!!

The first word he said when he got on was "I ain't crazy, ya'll crazy" then he got off on 34th street and came through the following set of doors and said "oh ya'll thought I was gone, nope you ain't gonna be sitting here talking behind my back" the train erupted in laughter. he then proceeded to tell jokes (which were funny):
Here the one that made me laugh hardest:
there was a little girl that lived w/ her father and he died social worker asked her did she want to live with her aunt, she said no because she beats me. Social worker asked did she want to live with her uncle same response. What about you mother, no the girl said she really beats me. Well who do you want to live with, the girl said the Knicks cause they don't beat anybody.

Cute right? Anyway he passed his little black plastic bag around and folks gave him change (for real all you have to do is make a nyer laugh) and then he saw someone he knew.

Their conversation was also quite comical but sad.......

Apparently tight sweat pants was a victim of the Rockefeller laws and served some time for a small bag of cocaine, now he can't get a job because of his record and that was 20yrs ago (he said he was 53). So that's the sad part. Then he proceeds to say that now that the laws were being overturned and he'd kicked the habit he was golden (the funny part was that he started singing Jill Scott's golden). Ah the A train has never failed me yet

My heart deploys in January......

Ah Facebook and its many quizzes, I usually don't take or send them (and I never post on my page) but Keith (from Keith's Space) sent me the test that would tell me what my birthday says about me.. Pretty accurate not completely but a lot of it is true. Anyway here it is:

Stubborn and hard-hearted. Ambitious and serious. Loves to teach and be taught. Always looking at people's flaws and weaknesses. Likes to criticize. Hardworking and productive. Smart, neat and organized. Sensitive and has deep thoughts. Knows how to make others happy. Quiet unless excited or tensed. Rather reserved. Highly attentive. Resistant to illnesses but prone to colds. Romantic but has difficulties expressing love. Loves children. Loyal. Has great social abilities yet easily jealous. Very Stubborn and money cautious.

Just thought this was worth the share, now you have a little more insight into who I am.
