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 www.instylhaircare.com (A sister is BAD y'all)
- Total Cost: $43...Now that's priceless

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".
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?
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!

So, do you think he deserved it?
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!
And could that chick next the camera person have combed her hair any more?
Did the chick have OCD or something?

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.
on my nails for the first time since I was allowed to go out with boys by myself.
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.
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 . 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?

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 sad...you 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.
Friday the 23rd. We had a blast as usual.
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!

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 having palpitations...
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 yeah...my B'Day is coming up and I'd like to leave a little note to all my friends out there...you 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!
OK, so I'm not really speechless...
I have got to figure out how to upload audio clips. I just listened to a a great radio show with Dr. Mayisha Clairborne, MD and Dr. Elaina George in which they discuss the risks on the 2 different types of Swine Flu (N1H1) vaccines and natural ways to protect ourselves among other things.
One of the things they address is the stress levels we are under and how they can effect the diseases and aliments we get. One thing that we can do to help protect ourselves in a good cleanse. I am not saying go in a fast or anything crazy but a great product you can pick up is
You can find out more information on the product on their website @
Here are a few tips from Dr. Clairborne if you opt to not get the flu shot.
- If you are sick, wash hands more, keep your distance from people who are sick.
- Stay at home if you re sick. The flu spreads through droplets (which is why is many people are saying it is illogical to give people the vaccine in their nose).
- Take Acute Cold & Flu Formula (ACF) by Buried Treasure daily and take more when/if you feel cold or flu symptoms.
- Take 1000 mg of vitamin C daily to keep your immune boosted.
- Stock up on ginger root and make a tea of it by boiling about an inch of it.
This too is a natural immune booster.
eat regular (healthy) meals, avoid dairy, avoid refined foods and sugars, sleep6-8 hours a night.

I am tempted to go into a rant about this but it speaks for itself. Our government has failed us!
With the rate of inflation there is no justification for this...gas, rent, food, day care etc. have all gone up, all the while minimum wage has decreased in comparison. A dollar has less value today than in previous years and until we start to make a strategic plan to combat it we are going to sink...Shoot, I already see bubbles.

And is it just me or does it look like his hair is going to come off with that hat.
Maybe that we need to put more focus on education in this country, maybe they we should stop outsourcing jobs and spend some $ cultivating the people who are right here, maybe we could pay people a livable wage so that parents wouldn't have to work 3 jobs just to feed their children and would have the time to spend with them...I could go on and on...Ugh!

Peep these clips from each and let me know what you think...
My Nappy Roots
Chris needs to be ashamed of himself and I can't believe her case was dismissed. It's a total rip off...just because he went to different celebrities and Chicago's Hair Show rather then Atlanta's doesn't make it a different movie.
I got this as a text message from a friend who's daughter this is. She was fighting on the bus and was sliced on her face.
Please, please, please talk to all the children in your lives about things like this. We no longer live in a time where kids are fighting one minute but become best friends the next semester. Our children are exposed to more violence, drugs and sex earlier and earlier in their lives and the effects are showing up in all kinds of way.
I know that wall Busta does not say 2009...How in the hell could he put this on, knowing good and well Louis Vuitton did make any of this? That's a Chinatown special if I ever saw one. It doesn't even look like he gave them real leather to work with. SMH!
Busta you are dead wrong for rolling up there looking like someone's nasty uncle your Mom tells you to stay away from...I know it's a tribute to the Hip Hops past but that does not mean it is Ok to break out the outfit you wore in Leaders of the New School's first video.
And the hat...Oh I can't!

Here's the full story in all it's insanity...
NEW ORLEANS – A white Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have.
Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.
"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."
Bardwell said he asks everyone who calls about marriage if they are a mixed race couple. If they are, he does not marry them, he said.
Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.
"There is a problem with both groups accepting a child from such a marriage," Bardwell said. "I think those children suffer and I won't help put them through it."
If he did an interracial marriage for one couple, he must do the same for all, he said.
"I try to treat everyone equally," he said.
Bardwell estimates that he has refused to marry about four couples during his career, all in the past 2 1/2 years.
Beth Humphrey, 30, and 32-year-old Terence McKay, both of Hammond, say they will consult the U.S. Justice Department about filing a discrimination complaint.
Humphrey, an account manager for a marketing firm, said she and McKay, a welder, just returned to Louisiana. She is white and he is black. She plans to enroll in the University of New Orleans to pursue a masters degree in minority politics.
"That was one thing that made this so unbelievable," she said. "It's not something you expect in this day and age."
Humphrey said she called Bardwell on Oct. 6 to inquire about getting a marriage license signed. She says Bardwell's wife told her that Bardwell will not sign marriage licenses for interracial couples. Bardwell suggested the couple go to another justice of the peace in the parish who agreed to marry them.
"We are looking forward to having children," Humphrey said. "And all our friends and co-workers have been very supportive. Except for this, we're typical happy newlyweds."
"It is really astonishing and disappointing to see this come up in 2009," said American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana attorney Katie Schwartzmann. She said the Supreme Court ruled in 1967 "that the government cannot tell people who they can and cannot marry." (unless you are gay)
The ACLU sent a letter to the Louisiana Judiciary Committee, which oversees the state justices of the peace, asking them to investigate Bardwell and recommending "the most severe sanctions available, because such blatant bigotry poses a substantial threat of serious harm to the administration of justice."
"He knew he was breaking the law, but continued to do it," Schwartzmann said.
According to the clerk of court's office, application for a marriage license must be made three days before the ceremony because there is a 72-hour waiting period. The applicants are asked if they have previously been married. If so, they must show how the marriage ended, such as divorce.
Other than that, all they need is a birth certificate and Social Security card.
The license fee is $35, and the license must be signed by a Louisiana minister, justice of the peace or judge. The original is returned to the clerk's office.
"I've been a justice of the peace for 34 years and I don't think I've mistreated anybody," Bardwell said. "I've made some mistakes, but you have too. I didn't tell this couple they couldn't get married. I just told them I wouldn't do it."
Did he really say that he lets the black people he knows use his bathroom? Just the simple fact that he felt the need to say that says a lot to me. And he "treats everyone equally"? This man doesn't even seen to know and doesn't seem to know what "equally" even means. Since when do the personal feelings take precedence over the law?
And peep the book I found while hunting around for more info...I bet Justice Bardwell gives these out as stocking stuffers.
