Mom & President Obama

Wassup! I know it’s been a minute since my last blog…hell, I am even noticing that I am not writing as much as I used to. But I just wanted to briefly share the emotional ride that I began on January 16, 2007

This past week was an exciting week for me because of two reasons. The first reason is that my mother turned 70 on Saturday, January 17th, and my sisters (Carian, Judy, and Stacey), my brother (Billy), and my father (Sam) all threw her one hellacious surprise birthday party. It also reminded me that some of my cousins and some very dear friends have most recently lost their mother, which made having the party for my mother more poignant for us. We are thankful and blessed that God has given her to us thus far. We rented a banquet room at Snyder’s Willow Grove Restaurant, and 115 guests dined on filet mignon and broiled crab cakes. My cousin’s Sheila, Stanley, Curry, Lisa, Karen, Tink, and Craig commissioned a cake for my mother…it was a snow white owl sitting on a branch atop a mound of snow…it was absolutely an amazing cake and since my mother love’s owls, the cake was a great fit. The party ended at 10pm, because Mom and most of their friends are old, and we had another party to go to.

Secondly, was the Inauguration of the First African American President as the 44th POTUS and the Black First Family into the White House. It is a special time, a moving time, for me as I cried all weekend, and as I write this I still tear up. I am not sure about many of you but this historical event is something my parent’s thought they would NEVER see. Despite what RFK said, and despite what MLK believed and spoke of in his I Have a Dream speech, they never believed it. They never thought that American’s, white, black, and all colors in between would be open minded enough to vote for a black man. Mr. President Obama inspires something in all of us, that at times you just can’t explain because it is a feeling that you have inside. My friend is always mocking me and asking me why do I like him so, and my explanation is that he gives me hope for a better world. Hope for a more tolerant world, a more understanding and giving world, and that is the world I want my great nieces and nephews aka my babies to grow up in. To flourish and succeed in…that word hope is on the words of a lot of people and to me, that is what President Obama (man, I get chills saying it…but I love saying it) represents for me.

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so horny...it hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came here...to you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
