…hitting you with some Southern hospitality

1 Comment

This week’s throwback song is a classic from one of my favorite rap groups. Their music transcends race and genre. They’re style is incomparable. Their artistry is unquestionable. And it all started with this little song giving homage to their home (and my home, they even name drop the street I used to live on). I give you Big Boi and Andre 3000 with…

…grateful there are still honest people in the world

 Last night I walked out of a MARTA commuter train and left my purse inside. This particular purse has straps that always seem to come loose. I keep saying I”m going to stop carrying it, but it’s such a fabulous bag, I can’t bear to part with it.

 Well the said fabulous bag contained an iPod, an iPhone, a digital camera, cash, two debit cards, and my wallet with all my ID. Needless to say I was a hot mess when I discovered it missing. First thing I did was call one of the service phones at the station and incoherently and breathlessly babbled on about leaving my purse on the train. MARTA dispatchers must be trained to decipher incoherent babble because she tracked down the train operator, who returned my purse to the MARTA police station with everything intact.

 I was particularly moved by this because we’re constantly overwhelmed by news coverage of the lowest scum of human life and at times it’s hard to believe that truly good people exist. Especially in these tough economic times and when the gangster lifestyle is glamorized and honesty is looked upon as weakness. I’m here to say that good people do exist and they’re not hard to find.

 I did not get the names of the people who assisted me last night, but I’m so blessed and appreciative for you. My blog readers may know that I’m unemployed and I could only imagine what a bitch it would be to have to try to get all new ID, not to mention the additional expense when I’m not getting much income. It was truly a blessing and I’m grateful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

OMG this would so be my New Year’s Eve dress if I had a job and could afford to buy it and I had a New Year’s Eve party to go to. I’ll just pine away = (.

…is gonna start dating ugly guys again

Could Flavor Flav be my next boyfriend?

I’ve got a problem. I’m dating a sexy guy. Really sexy.  He is absolutely the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen and he is dating… me. Me, the chubby girl with the gap in her teeth, the hammer toes, and poochy belly.

I know what you’re thinking ” you poor thing, you get to have sex with a hot guy,  boo hoo (totally dripping with sarcasm)” But the truth is I’ve never dated anyone this hot and I’m totally insecure. Being with a really good looking person makes me feel…I don’t know…kind of ugly.

I’m constantly thinking you could have anyone why would you pick me? I’m constantly thinking that he’s gonna find someone better looking and drop me like a hot potato.

I’ve shared these thoughts with him and he assures me that he is very happy with me. He compliments me constantly and tells me that just because he gets female attention doesn’t mean he is interested. The crazy thing is he’s insecure that someone is going to steal me from him. Wow! I broke it off with him and he campaigned to get me back. Me.. the chubby girl with the gap teeth, hammer toes, and poochy belly.

That’s why I dated ugly guys I never felt like I had to compete. I always felt like they were lucky to have me. I shouldn’t say they were ugly, they were all cute to me. I’m a thrift store queen I can find the treasure in any trash. Plus I’m usually attracted to some other quality like one guy who was really smart, and others who could make me laugh.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone else date ugly guys? Any suggestions for me.

…wishing you a Merry Christmas

Kirk Franklin captured the meaning of Christmas with this beautiful song. It’s my gift to you (since I’m unemployed and too broke to buy you anything). It is also my favorite Christmas song, so it’s this week’s Brandy’s Favorite Thing.  May it bless you the way its blessed me. Merry Christmas everyone.

…is trying not to forget the real meaning of Christmas

The closer we get to the big day the easier it is to get bogged down with making dinner, picking up relatives from the airport, going to pageants, making costumes, getting last minute gifts, etc.  Take a second today and remember what this season is really all about. If you need a reminder, listen to Josh Groban’s beautiful version of “O Holy Night.”
