The not-so-Amazing Race

Instead of watching Nip/Tuck last Tuesday, I mistakenly got involved in the 2-hour premiere of The Amazing Race: Family Edition. I was confident that the Black family (who also happen to be black... coincidence?) would not win the big prize, but I wanted to see how they would do and give my support, since the mother is my soror. I was also intrigued by the addition of little children, and I was wondering how the challeneges would be organized to keep the playing field level. I should go ahead and say that I doubt I'll be watching too much of the rest of the season......

Gooooogle.

Search terms that have been bringing people here lately: Tearria+Marie Thicke John+Fountain+the+black+church pretty+black+girls John+Mayer spectacular+yes If I were the seeker of any of these topics and ended up here, I'd be pissed. I'm starting to think that maybe blogs are taking up too much space on the internet, and clogging search results, especially Google results,…

Damnit!

I am currently trying to write a letter to my insurance company begging them to pleasepleasePLEASE approve my request to cover a breast reduction mamaplasty. I'm not quite sure what to say. It's not fun, it's not sexy, it's not in any way enjoyable. I can hardly walk, I've gained twenty pounds in the past nine months, and part of that is because the simple act of walking leaves my back so tired and aching that I don't have the energy to work out by the time I get to the gym. I could lose 1500 grams of tissue per side and still be in a full C, possibly a D-cup. I feel like a freak. So I'm reading success stories and tragedy stories and all these accounts of other women who've gone through the same process, and I haven't even come across anyone who's as bad off as I am. Yet I'm still worried about my insurance not covering me. It's reached a point where if it comes down to choosing between paying tuition and housing or paying for this surgery, I'm just going to have to sit out a semester, because the physical stress of simply getting around campus is too much for me to handle. I don't want to do that because I just finished taking time off, and I've made such good progress getting myself back into the swing of things... I just don't know what to do anymore. ...

I’m a hustla’

So I finally bit the bullet and took advantage of the free trial on cafepress.com to start selling some merch. Now I can finally print up all the cute little t-shirts I want and make a few ends in the process. Feel free to comment/criticize/ask for something custom. Always one to eschew manufactured irony, I…

I’m back baby!

Okay, so I'm watching Nip/Tuck and feeling like this episode is long as shit because of all these movie previews and I'm mad because I hyped myself up for this and it's boring. Then the last 10 minutes roll around and its all pure gold. This man said "three ways are the new black." Could…

Perpetratin’ a Fraud

So shoot me.... I really want to know what kind of fraud Kenny Chesney ran on Renee Zellwegger... isn't he famous? What exactly was this celebrity man hiding that she didn't know about? The whole thing is a little intriguing. What also intrigues me is this: originally Jack and Meg of the White Stripes were…

I just wanna…

So, under normal circumstances I would be going to Slam Charlotte tonight, since I always go, but I'm feeling a little under the weather. The weather being bloody with a 70% chance of cramps. Yes, the Menstruation Fairy has entered my life for the second time this year thanks to the wonders of modern technology.…

Thicke is the new Justin.

It was 1995 and R&B was just beginning its slow and tragic decline to be replaced by hip-hop. Then, along comes Jon B., the original sexy white guy with a ghetto pass. Now, Jon B. fooled a lot of people; I'm sure there are some who still think he was either Puerto Rican or real…
