Obama's Race To Win?

My following of the presidential race is giving me this feeling that I can not shake. The logical being that is me says that the conspiracy theorist side of me is playing tricks. However, regardless of how much I try, I can not shake the feeling that this race is being handed to Barack on a platter with some pork chops and onion gravy. I find it hard to believe that the Republicans can incidently be so stupid. The selection of a senile presidential candidate, an absent-minded vice-presidential candidate, and the chaos that is the Senate; appear to be more deliberate than accidental. Really, can a party be so simple-minded that they would actually think that these choices will afford their candidate an equal shot at the presidency? Maybe, after the Bush sceniero, the Reds know that anything is possible (wink, wink). Or are the republicans delibrately handing the job to Barack? If the answer is the latter, my question is why???

(Insert Twilight Zone music)

P.S...If I pop up missing or harmed in a few days...they did it!!!

Life is funny. You search the world meeting new people, discovering new things; all in an effort to reveal the true meaning or what some would consider the essence of life. In my limited time on this earth I've narrowed life's purpose to these few things: love, laughter and friendship (okay, friendship I stole from a friend but it's totally list worthy). In concert 2 L's and an F reveal a boundless sense of peace and purpose that cannot be mimicked, reproduced or forgotten. A sense of euphoria similar to the first day of school, the purchase of a new object or any other trivial accomplishment or acquisition. Yet unlike those moments; love, laughter and friendship are everlasting. They like energy are never created nor destroyed. . .merely transferred. . .like an infectious laugh from one person to another. . .passion from my lips to his. . .life lessons from one generation to the next. In your daily hustle for the wickedly necessary all mighty dollar, I hope you never stop making friends, manage to laugh at every mistake or hardship and remember to love. One day when we reach our respective ends, those are the moments you'll remember. Love hard ladies and gentlemen, Love free!!

Tomorrow is Never Promised

Over the years I have become severely desensitized by the world we live in. As an avid watcher and reader of the daily news, not much shakes me. But sometimes, every once in a while, there is something that hits me at my core. This day, September 11th, is one of those things.

I'm not a very emotional or affectionate person, but I am going to make it my goal today to tell all of my friends, family, and even enemies, that I wish the best for them and those around. I invite you all to do the same. Say a prayer, do something nice or just say hi to someone today. We would all be amazed at how effective a little bit of kindness is on the world.

Thank you all for reading...(Enjoy this, as I will probably be back to my cynical self soon.)

I'm so on it. . .

Marc Jacobs Spring '09

Yes Kanye's suspenders are making me plan my own funeral! Yes Jay Z's finally growing some chin hair, but Mark Jacobs is everything!! Look at this man's skin, perfectly groomed eyebrows, salt & pepper chin strap, mild Just for Me permed chest hair, tattoo and baby pea diamonds! Ohh. . .I died!

White sex is the best sex!!

Any one know if he's gay?

Mo, Better, Black

There's nothing quite like a little Emanuel Lewis-esque chest hair to get your week headed in the right direction!! These fine men and E.Lee3 are the stars of another Spike Lee production, Miracle at St. Anna, hitting theaters near you September 26th.

Holy Michael Ealy. . .I have to see this movie.

I Likes To Role Play...

I was very excited to find that Patricia Field has recreated some of our favorite Sex in the City looks for the girl on a budget. If you're like me (black, but swear that you and Carrie Bradshaw are blood sisters) then you should be jumping for joy right now. For the budget girl this line is a bit pricey, but the fashionista should find it to be moderate. Decide which one you are, then decide which items are best for you. There are a few classic pieces, and a some should haves.

Check it out at HSN. Don't forget to check back on Tuesday, September 16 for the release of more exclusive (and, in my opinion, better) looks from the Destination Style New York line. The choices will include a must have black dress, red polka halter and the infamous flower dress.

Any Excuse for a Party

Football, Football, Football.

Football stats are all you'll hear pouring out of the mouths of men for the next 3 or 4 months (or however long this season lasts). Instead of pretending to listen, I suggest really getting into the sport. Honestly, how long can you resist the the sight of physically fit men exuding remarkable strength and adrenaline to achieve a goal? Not to mention the bonus fights and touchdown dances. . . the fine specimen that take the hits (think Chad Johnson) and the smile your man will wear knowing you won't nag him for the next 3 hours.

But if you're like me (single). . .do it for the sheer hell of it. Next Sunday, call up your friends, prepare a pitcher of Sangria (recipe below) and make it a party. How you ask? Actually learn the game. Pretend to be a commentator, pay attention to the 3rd & 10's, watch the play clock, count the flags, cheer with the fans and when your team does something you like show them your victory dance. Football season, like any other, is an excuse to have a party!! Life's short. . . enjoy it!!

Let Us Beam...Fiercely

Did you guys watch America's Next Top Model?!? I CAN'T TAKE IT!! I love this show so much! So readers (all two of you), what did you think?

...And get into my sister Tyra!! I died several times...

Always great fun with Ms. Banks.

Blackberrys, Boys, Booties & Bold Journalism

Right now I could use a sexy glass of red wine, the necklace Beyonce's murdering, some of that United Kingdom weave she wears oh so well, a couple of barely legal boy toys, the new Blackberry Bold, a pair of L.A.M.B. Norland booties and flawless gay man skin to make my days slaving at the "steal your soul factory" justifiable. . . . the trials of a 9-5.

On The iPod: Estelle

With all of the controversy surrounding Estelle vs. iTunes, this seems like a great time to do a CD review. Usually I'd say "bitch go sit down", but not in this instance. I can see why she would want her fans to purchase the entire album. It is pretty great. Unlike some artist who have three or four good songs on an album, I found myself actually listening to the whole thing!! I know! Didn't fast forward once.

So, go to iTun...er...um....

Buy the album! The whole album!
