Would You Use LYSOL Douche???

I know the font is small so I have transcribed it for you...

Often a wife fails to realize that doubts due to one intimate neglect shuts her out from happy married love.

A man marries a woman because he loves her. So instead of blaming him if married love begins to cool, she should question herself. Is she truly trying to keep her husband and herself eager, happy married lovers? One most effective way to safeguard her dainty feminine allure is by practicing complete feminine hygiene as provided by vaginal douches with a scientifically correct preparation like “Lysol.” So easy a way to banish the misgivings that often keep married lovers apart.

Germs destroyed swiftly

“Lysol” has amazing, proved power to kill germ-life on contact…truly cleanses the vaginal canal even in the presence of mucous matter. Thus “Lysol” acts in a way that makeshifts like soap, salt or soda never can.

Appealing daintiness is assured, because the very source of objectionable odors is eliminated.

Use whenever needed!

Yet gentle, non-caustic “Lysol” will not harm delicate tissues. Simple directions give correct douching solution. Many doctors advise their patients to douche regularly with “Lysol” brand disinfectant, just to insure feminine daintiness alone, and to use it as often as necessary. No greasy aftereffect.

For feminine hygiene, three times more woman use “Lysol” than any other liquid preparation. No other is more reliable. You, too, can rely on “Lysol” to help protect your married happiness…keep you desirable!

Yo this is flipping crazy. You shouldn't even use Lysol in a closed space but to flush out your whoo haa...nah. I wonder where this product went over the years.

Last week I took a cooking (with essential oils) class taught by a woman named Bianca A. Beldini at Body By Brooklyn (a spa in Brooklyn). She was great and I hope to get a friend and my Mom to have some acupuncture done by her. While roaming through her site and blog, I found a similar "Lysol Douche" ad and she also has posted info an Lysol and its contents and health concerns in using it. Her Blog is pretty informative in general.

Pop on over and get it a read.

Aerosol…(gasp, choke, ugh)

Way Back Wednesday - The Resurgence of Scrubs...

Being that there seems to be a resurgence of SCRUBS I figured I'd make TLC's No Scrubs the Way Back Wednesday song this week.

Ladies, please stay away from them, the more attention we give them, the more they think it's acceptable to step to us with their bitchassness. We're only making it harder on ourselves by paying them mind. Please, please, please, stay away and save yourself some drama!

R.I.P. Left Eye

I got into a conversation about men, women and relationships in general with an older Panamanian man a while back and he made a good point to me.

men are just always going to try to get over. They will feed you lies to get what they want and that is why God made women the smarter sex; so that we could be wise enough to see through the BS and be selective. But somewhere along the line, (I think partially with the women liberation movement) everything got messed up and both sexes got on the same trifling page. It became more about getting over on the other person and less about respecting each other or actually even liking each other or enjoying the time you spend with that person.

All I know is, something is going to have to give or it's only going to get worse...can you imagine that?

World's Youngest Mom...


I do wonder how old he is though?

Let BANGS Take You To The Movies...

So would you go to the movies with Baby Boy Bangs?


Tangy Tuesday...The Walmart Chronicles

I know this may sound nuts, but I really hope drugs has played a roll in the assembly of these outfits. Cause if not mental illness is running ramped in Walmart's across America.

This isn't even really tangy, just funny. Go head Grandpa 2-Face!
He's probably had this suit since his prom back 1936.

Old Couple Rocks Two Young Women...

Who knew they got it poppin' in the Ukraine?

New York, The Devil is a Lie...

And his name is Mike Bloomberg...

New York, we have got to get Bloomberg out of office.

Tomorrow, November 3rd is election day and he will be running against Bill Thompson and it is pertinent that we get this man out of office.

First off he has no business even running for a third term. He just bogarded right passed the 2 term limit law. If I see one more commercial with him sitting up there lying to us about how he is going to make NY more affordable I am going to pull my weave out.

Think about it, why would a man (worth 16 BILLION) spend over 100 million of his own dollars to get elected into a position that won't pay half of that in the 4 years he will be in office? Remember this is business man we are talking about. He's going to make his money back one way or the other and it's going to be at our expense.

What has Bloomberg done for NY in the 8 years he has been in office?
Have you seen an improvement?

The mayor can put caps on rent, but instead he has lifted laws that say you can not charge more than and a certain amount in specific areas. Section 8 and low income housing has been cut at an alarming rate. And this is at a time when it is needed more than ever...we are in a recession and have a pretty high unemployment rate.

He had lifted all types of zoning laws so that now, right next to a row of beautiful classic brownstones there will be a 20 story glass high rise that looks like a strong wind will bring it down on the wrong day. And don't even get me started on the whole eminent domain thing (which means the state has the power to take private property for public use with payment of compensation to the owner).
They moved hundreds of people and businesses from the area near Atlantic and Flatbush avenues in downtown Brooklyn so that they could build the new NETS stadium. No work is being done (2 years later), and I hear that they don't have the money to complete the project (not to mention that it's a horrible location) and where are those people now after being forced out of their homes or to close there businesses.

The middle class and poor are being priced out of NY and it is no accident.

We have a man in office who is one of the richest people in New York and who actually said President Obama, "doesn't get paid that much...he's on a budget", though he makes $400,000+ a year.

You can peep the whole article and get into the mind of this greedy summa bytch over at the NY Times site.

Halloween Revisited....Gaga-rific!

Today I woke up hungover like Vanilla Ice over a balcony this morning.

I didn't get to party like I really wanted to, but my girls and I stayed up way past curfew chatting it up and sipping on the sauce and boy oh boy am I paying for it now.

By the way, I freaking love my friends. They helped me immensely with my costume and did my make-up since I am totally clueless in that department. Thanks SoyJoy & Nika!

Anyway, I just wanted to give you guys a few shots of my full Lady Gaga costume...

We tried to get artsy...

I was pooped after my performance...

Night Night!

And here are some of the cuties I saw while on roaming the streets during the day.

I really think this dog posed for me...

This isn't the whole costume. Got some huge angel wings and a few other
Gaga-rific stuff to go with my Disco Stick (which lights up by the way).

Be safe!Align Center

Moon Boots...

Anyone who really knows me knows that I LOVE a good bargain,
almost more than shoes...

So this right here, is a double whammy for me...

I got these boots for 20 bucks...

Now I can give my rain boots a break since we seem to be
taking it back to Noah's days with all this damn rain.

Anyway, I pieced them together with what I think may be the cheapest outfit in history...

  • Shirt- $6
  • Legging - $7
  • 3 rings - $5
  • Boots - $20
  • Belt - That came with 30 buck dress so I'll round that off to about 5 bucks.
  • Hair: By Carline of (A sister is BAD y'all)
  • Total Cost: $43...Now that's priceless

Lets's Play A Love Game

I'm getting ready for Halloween...What are you going as?

Have We Really Come to This...

I know I am a little late on this but I was really trying to ignore this comeback...

But since these mugs got together with K-Ci and the rest of the Crack Crew and made a video it's fair game...

H-Town and Jodeci (no that was not a typo) have collaborated and have released a song called "Knocking Your Heels Off".

Remember "Knocking the Boots", well this is the '09 version.

Here, this will jog your memory...Can't front this was my jam.

Wait, did he really say "2 boots coming together, making tasteful lust". No wonder my Mom banned this mess.

Anyway, I heard new the song a few weeks back but now that I have seen the video I really need to know if we have really come to this? I don't know anyone who was waiting for damn H-Town reunion tour OK... Some people really need to come to grips with the fact that they just need to stay BEHIND the curtain.

OK, there are just so many things wrong I can barely contain myself...

  • That first shot of DeVante is funny as all hell...why does he look like the smoked his teeth and replaced them with dirty beach pebbles? And the greasy ponytail...really? (So mad I used to love me some him)
  • I know I did not hear K-Ci sing "Shazam"?
  • What drunken, homeless broads did they pay in crack rocks and Huggies to appear in this video?
  • Did that chick with K-Ci wash properly after he got that close to her? If not, i see boils in her future.
  • Did he really say "kings of slow jams" at the end? Um yeah maybe in 93 buddy boy!
  • And finally why the hell didn't K-Ci do the whole video shirtless and on a dudes shoulders like normal? See that would have been entertaining?

I better not see any of you jamming to these washed up crackheads in the club!

Way Way Way Back Wednesday...Forgotten Men

Every once in a while I will get into a serious old school kick and last week I was in full Black & White Movie Mode and watched TCM (Turner Classic Movie channel) in excess.

One of the movies they played was Gold Diggers of 1933...Try and catch it (or it) if you're in a old movie mood.

I just love how straight to the point they were with the film titles back in the day.

It has some great themes running through it though and all the high drama and over the top fashion of most good classic films.

I wont tell you the full premise but a few scene really struck me. In one, the ladies (or girls as they were called throughout the movie) changed into chastity belts and the leading man was handed a old school can opener, spun her around and began ripping the back open so he could get a feel...Times were a changin'. That was probably seriously risqué for the 30's. And I guess they have fully changed now...

Forget women not wear pants because it was improper or unladylike now they can just wear panties and a tank to the club and still not have a dude offer to buy them a drink. Think about it ladies.

Anyway, this song really struck me..."Remember My Forgotten Man". I mean it can be interpreted different ways but but it came on at a time when I had not heard from a friend in the military in months. I was just about at the stage where you start going on line and looking for the names of the casualties and it reminded me again that we are at 'war'. Though the news never discusses it unless it is a feel good story or some solider fighting to come home to his sick infant...OK No Mini Militant Rants today...enjoy!

Oh Man...He Almost Got Me...

So this is what Chris Brown posted on his twitter page recently.

I am so mad at him for tugging on my heart stings.

I bet if this whole indecent hadn't been so public they might have stayed together (though many say they still are) but I'm worried if Rihanna and him do get back together it would send the wrong message to women and girls in this situation.

The men who have been abusing them have not been publicly embarrassed, ostracized or lost multi-million dollar endorsements so their incentive to change is not as great as Chris'.

And I really think his lawyer should have advised him against singing any song with the lyrics "call the paramedics" in it...Mess around and give a chick a flash back!

Tangy Tuesday...Watch Out for the Big Girl

I almost forgot...

In this video a transvestite maces a little boy for talking smack.

So, do you think he deserved it?

OK, maybe I would have maced the Momma for not shutting him up.
People really need to get a handle on their kids cause this BS is only going to get worse. You teach your children that is OK to talk to people crazy and curse them out and then they get maced and want to cry...he didn't care about her...his... shim's....he/she's feeling and she-he didn't give a damn about his eyes. Bwah!

Bet he'll shut his mouth the next go round. eating little pug pot...
Some of these lil' rugrats are out of control and need somebody to beat their a$$ but I guess if you're in a mini skirt and heels mace is a better bet.

And could that chick next the camera person have combed her hair any more?
Did the chick have OCD or something?

I Love My Nail Tech...

Seriously, she Rocks My Nail Beds...

I always go into the nail salon asking for weird stuff.

First I ask her to do a silver zebra print on one nail...

Then it was cheetah or leopard in gold, bronze and black...

A few other off the wall things along the way...
and I think she finally gets me...

I reminded her of the fade to black nails I showed her in a magazine awhile back...

and asked if she had come up with any system she could use to recreate it.

She said she hadn't but said that she had an idea she wanted to try.

I was totally confused as to what I wanted but knew I was finally going to put purple
on my nails for the first time since I was allowed to go out with boys by myself.

Well here is she what she came up with...

I'm Loving It!

She put 3 graduated layers of the glitter over the top of a deep purple,
creating a depth effect (sorry if it isn't that clear in these shots).

Oh yeah, the black ring above, I made. I have been making them in silver and gold and tried it in
black this week...Not sure how i feel about it yet but I sure had fun making it.

So what do ya think?

Man Boobage...

I need the male tittied masses to calm the hell down...
Ladies please stop convincing these men they are fly!

Dudes, if you can do this with, there's a problem!

Pregnant 1 Year ld???

Does anyone else wonder why these things always seem to happen in China. What the hell are they pumping into the water supply?

STUNNED doctors have discovered a one-year-old girl is carrying a BABY in her tummy. Little Kang Mengru, from China , left medics baffled after her belly became enlarged. Doctors carried out a CT scan to discover the cause of the growth and found a fetus inside her. They believe the tot is her parasitic twin. She is now waiting operation to have the tiny baby removed. Instances of a fetus growing inside of their sibling happens roughly once in every 500,000 births.

OK, is it me or does that sound way more frequent than you'd think?
What I want to know is, is the baby inside still alive, or it more like a tumor at this point?

Shoe Abuse

Before you even scroll down I need you guys to press play...

I jammed to this song many nights in the Paradox or Hammer Jacks when I was in B-more...

Now y'all know how much I love shoes, but this right here is straight shoe abuse and I'm not happy about it...

Actually it's every damn thing abuse...Victoria's poor secrets are all over the damn place, those poor shorts are stuck in places that day light hasn't see in a years.

On a serious note this is just can look at there knees and calves and tell they are not meant to be this big. I don't have a damn thing against a big girl but when your knees look like fried pig knuckles and you're half naked I do take offense.

After Shocky's/Shecky's...

So Shecky's went down this past week and my girls and I went on the last day,
Friday the 23rd. We had a blast as usual.

I just want to give you gals a peek into a real Shekcy's goodies bag.

Be advised the photos of this bag is after I gave a way,
traded, used and ate some of the items in the bag.

The only thing I can say about this one is that it didn't have any liquor in it...Not even one little nip. When my girls and I first started going they had a full bottle of Little Black Dress Wine, then it went to a few nips of Finlandia Vodka in different flavors. Now, nada but it's all good cause they have started putting more full size products in the bag so I'm good with that.

Let me move the stuff around so you can get a better view.

Now you tell me...isn't this worth 30 bucks? And you get to drink all you wane for the night.

The next NY Shecky's Girls Night Out with be start on Thursday, December 17 and end on Saturday, December 19 and be held at Puck Building again. Can't wait.

I'm surprisingly proud of myself though. I only purchased one item. Can you believe it?

It wasn't because there weren't tons of cute stuff to buy but because I am
getting better at telling myself no...maturity rocks sometimes!

You Think You've Got Problems...

This left in balling...tears tears and more tears. Utterly tragic!

This woman was sentenced to life in prison (plus 4 years)

Now I am an A&E junky (watching Criminal Minds as I type) and have seen many cases where people kill there whole damn family and don't get life sentences, so what the hell is justification for this BS.

I actually watched one recently where a 19 year old boy walked into a dorm room and shot his "bully" in the head 3 times. He served roughly 4 years in a mental hospital and was deemed criminally insane and NEVER EVEN WENT TO TRIAL. He is now a professor at a college and living under an assumed name...Now justify that to me!

Now granted I don't know the facts of her case....for all I know she plotted on dude for a month before you bodied him but the man was her rapist, abuser and pimp, how the hell could that not be taken into consideration...Who the hell was her public defender? See stories like this really make me mad at myself doe not going to law school. Things like this happen everyday.

As a matter of fact a friend of mine was being tried for kidnapping a few years back. The prosecutor was trying to send her up the damn river...Now I am not saying that she did not deserve to be punished but even the judge went off on the prosecutor saying something to effect of "I have seen you come in here and ask for 5 years for people who have shot people and here you are asking for 15 for a kidnapping? What's your justification?".

I have no idea what is going through the minds of these judges when they hand out the sentencing they do but I feel like there needs to be some sort of annual evaluation of cases like this.

I'm in Love Again...

See neither Tom Ford (of Gucci) or Alexander Wang care anything about my blood pressure. You can not put things like this out on the market and not expect bad things to happen.

I'm having palpitations...

Gucci Division Over The Knee Boot

Alexander Wang Hanne Triple Buckle Boot

I am plotting as I type this on what I need to do to get these in my life...I don't see this ending well.

Oh B'Day is coming up and I'd like to leave a little note to all my friends out are being forwarded...If I do not see one of these pairs of shoes wrapped up real pretty like waiting for me (I can wait until Christmas) I'm not talking to any of you ever again!

Don't forget these, they are an option as well...
