Kinky Fri- um, Monday: Black Girls Can Blo!

Since I first heard about blow dry bars a few years ago, I've been curious. Quick $35 straightening sounds like a perfect why-didn't-I-think-of-that  idea for the kinky and curly headed, but the salons are marketed primarily to women who already have straight hair. I knew that the black/white, textured/straight salon experiences are somewhat different, but…

So… that went well.

I completely gave up on the posting-from-Jamaica scheme. We all knew that was bound to not work out. I was too busy getting kidnapped, writing papers and enjoyng the local botany to really focus on any kind of coherent blogging. However, now that I'm back to (my) real world I need a creative outlet that…

Cool Runnings

At the urging of my mother though, I've decided to at least try to use the little bit of consistent internet time I have to document at least a few of my adventures. And if I can do anything, it's have an adventure.

New to You Tuesday (late edition)

I'm a fly girl on a shoestring budget. This week's review: The Chinatown Bus I was wary as hell when my dear friend Miss H. suggested that we take the Chinatown bus rather than the train from DC to New York. My Amtrak ticket would have been $45 bucks, but her round trip ticket would…

Fresh to Death

So I went to the Little Brother show last night at Tremont and it was soooo good! The openers were even decent, esp. The Others and Herron (am I the only person in the world not on myspace?) Hands down the best 12 bucks I've ever spent. The chick singing wasn't all that great, but…

Awww yeah.

So I tried to run game on the Apple store today, but it didn't really work out. I did, however get invited to a spoken word night by the Black Apple Guy and I chatted hard with the Design Guy. Now I know that a: my computer is going to die soon, b: I should…

Spectacular Yes

So it goes, I got the job in the Student Media offices and there's no way they can not hire me to work on the staff. I mean, how many other top-shelf writer/designers can they find on this campus? None as fly as me, I'm sure. This means that I'm on my way toward not…
