Email to my sister

My kitty hung out with me all day in the bedroom yesterday watching tv. I figured what the heck, we had a good time and I didn't want to close the door on her at bedtime... after I turned off all the lights I cracked the bedroom door. She waltzed in and immediately jumped on the bed and picked her corner. So far so good, gave me a nose rub goodnight and we settled in. Around five-ish a.m., I woke with a start, noticing some pressure on my leg. Then I moved some more and she POUNCES on my leg! Moved it again and she did it yet again, teeth and all! Um - owwwwww!!! I literally kicked her off the bed. Actually saw her fly off, pretty funny actually. She dusted herself off, and walked out to her litterbox. I jumped up and closed the door, lower limbs safe once again.

Methinks I won't try again til she's a bit older and she tones down the dreams of being a tiger on the Serenghetti and pretending my legs and feet are zebras.

Of Guidos, Guidettes and others...

I am rather amused at all the hoopla over that MTV show. I'd like to see it, but I'm obsessed with Steven Segal's Lawman and too cheap to get DVR. I wonder how a show like this with black kids instead would have been received? After all, if you leave out any and all references to ethnicity, which race would you associate with the celebration of ignorance, monolithic thinking, hatred of real work and stupid girls proclaiming their race of men are the very best?

...perhaps BET will pick up the slack? Wait, they do already...

Fun fact #8,760

It's very easy to remain celibate when the only guys approach you are either defective (broken-down, mentally unstable, infected with the "hook-up" mentality, whatever) or simply butt-ugly. If it weren't for the wonders of polymer safe bet I've would have killed someone by now.

Damn, that's weird!

Below "acquired" from here. I did not know this!

The first grandchild of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. is a girl.A family spokeswoman says Arndrea Waters King, wife of Martin Luther King III, gave birth to Yolanda Renee King on Sunday at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. Spokeswoman Sandra Tarver says the mother and baby are healthy. The baby was named after her aunt, Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest daughter Yolanda, who died in May 2007, Tarver says.Martin Luther King III married shortly after his mother’s death in January 2006, but the wedding was not made public until this year. He was the first of Martin Luther King Jr.’s four children to marry and the first to have a child.

Hey, wait a minute....

...as a black woman should I have been pissed that people accused Jacko of denying his blackness? Let's see, self-loathing, turning his back on his race until he got in trouble, stabbing people in the back (McCartney, Miss Ross, etc.) - guess what? He represented black male celebrity pretty damn well to me!

I'm the type that can only focus on one thing at a time (unless I'm playing with my beloved Barbara or doing my BB prayers). I have a Twitter account but I just keep track of the people I want to track. I have not made one post yet I have five followers. I know it's probably because they're too lazy to add these people to their own accounts but it still is weird. Should I entertain these five followers of mine? Do they want me to post, excuse me, "tweet?" I can post little bizarre nuggets of truth like:

Yesterday I had my first mammogram. At the first clamping of my breast I screamed and called the tech a sadist.

This really happened, I'd like to post it but I like to ramble too so I'm not sure tweeting or twatting (thanks Mr. Colbert) is the way to go here. 150-character limit and all. I don't know... if you care enough, decipher the picket fence code, that's my Twitter name, one word.

Rick Santorum's a prick, but...

"I think it's great that the President of the United States has a date night with his wife. I think it's very, very important for him, he's a role model, he's a role model, in particular, whether he likes it or not , in the African American Community and you have an African-American community, particularly in the poor inner city areas, we’re looking at out of wedlock birthrates in three quarters to 75 percent (sic) of children being born out of wedlock. Marriage is an institution that’s a bridge too far for too many African-American woman and is not desirable among African-American males. Here we have a president of the United States who says that marriage is cool. You have respect for your wife, and you treat her with the respect and dignity that she deserves. And she is part of this team. And it’s not just part of professional team, but it’s also part of a personal, romantic team. I think that’s all great. So I think it’s important that he keeps having his date night. "

...This is some good stuff, maybe I should dust of my journal. I'm starting to think the unwashed masses don't get this stuff at all.

Fun fact...

God really will and does supply you with all of your needs! I am not a fan of churches with their politics and bs, so I seek God in the natural world and the Bible (even there you should be careful, though any part of Psalms is excellent).

Mind you, I said needs, not wants. I've been a loner all of my life, the people I thought were "friends" were in my life briefly for whatever reason. My longest romantic relationship didn't even survive five months (baby-momma wanted him back as soon as he asserted some independence and he decided not to tell me), and that was over eight years ago. God definitely knows something I don't, which would explain my inability to connect with men and humans in general, yet I know so much about how their minds work (which is never for the betterment of others). so God keeps them away. I was in so much pain over it but now I know it's for the best and I thank Him every day for it. But my mind will forever be amazed how simply horrid human beings seem to foster and maintain relationships with others who could do much better. AND THEY LAST!!! Perhaps I should be even nastier, then lots of guys will adore me... such pieces of shit they all are.

Humans, truly "a virus with shoes" (thank you Bill Hicks).

I'm not surprised at all.

I'm listening to my boys Opie & Anthony (and lil' Jimmy Norton) talking about Wanda Sykes at the Correspondents' Dinner. I wonder why they - or anyone for that matter - be surprised that Rush Limbaugh hardly touched on it? Al Franken knew (and wrote about it) years ago that that sorry fuck won't confront anyone unless it can be on his terms. Of course he's not going to lambast Sykes, and he sure as shit will never, EVER take on Stephen Colbert (whose salvos have been simply ignored). He will not go after anyone who can shoot back, certainly not anyone smarter or or halfway wittier than him. Yet he can somehow beat Republican idiots into submission who dare criticize him because for some odd reason, they give him the power to do it. So no, I knew right away he'd be tight-lipped about her, he's an insecure twat who can only shout insults from his fortified enclosure (see Howard Stern - and don't get me started on the continued dietification of him at O&A's expense).

...I wonder if being born on January 12 has something to do with it all? hmmmmmmm...

Why is everyone afriad of Israel?

Is it the lobbyists? Is it Al Franken's theory from Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot (related to Armageddon)? Is giving the Isralis brown people to harrass and murder a form of reparation for the Holocaust? If only President Ahmadinejad would ease up on the Holocaust-was-a-myth crap, we could analyze the truth in the rest of his statements. Anti-semite is an ugly word, but it should not be used to attempt to silence people who want to end the slaughter.

"Discovering their deploring of Israeli racism can make them social outcasts, many committed North American anti-racists back away, afraid to utter the truth. They censor themselves.

But the truth remains. If Zionism means driving Palestinians from their homes to make way for Jewish settlements, if it means Palestinians must be denied their right of return lest the ethnic character of Israel change, if it means that Israeli Arabs must forever be relegated to second-class citizenship, then Zionism is racism.

Nothing can change the truth. Not name calling. Not the bully tactics of Israel's defenders. Not intimidation. And not an uncritical media that readily accepts the easy and simple-minded formula that criticism of Israel amounts to anti-Semitism."

Say hello to Barbara, her first week home...


Tuesday, February 24, 2009


The older I get, the more I realize I am not of this planet. Yes I know we are wonderfully and fearfully made in the eyes of God, but I REALLY think I'm from another planet. I just don't understand certain aspects of the human condition. Perhaps it's because I'm on such a different wavelength (throw in a dash of not being overly charismatic since I've only been approached by sorry assholes of all races my whole life), but there has only been a handful of times when I succumed to my baser instincts. We know men suck and like to use their dicks as an excuse to do stupid risky things without a thought to the consequences, but what about women?

For example, I know a very creative, intelligent, sunny young lady who could go very far in the world if she chooses. Unfortunately, she possesses a patina of ghetto, and I truly believe I am the only person she knows that does not have that similar layer. Still, she is a positive person and is always learning despite the truly rediculous choices she occasionally makes. She still fishes in the so-called "black community" pond for male remnants in the hope of true love, though she knows damn well she can do better. She just fucked up again and even though I know full well I can't tell a grown woman what to do, I am still older and try to convince her that she is above this bullshit. I think she just wanted some dick, she has been celibate for a while. What she doesn't realize is that while she's getting hers, this thug wannabe is just like every other damaged black "man," who is only interested into getting as much pussy from as many women as possible. They're not looking to commit to anyone, EVER. She thinks she got the upper hand by getting some when in reality she got played - again. Pathetic. To surrender to urges that only satiate temporarily only makes you feel empty and guilty, at least I do. I just have too much self-respect... I prefer to play out my easy-sleazy fantasies in my mind. It's safer (besides, it never works out the way you want it anyway).

Best answer indeed...

It takes an intelligent and a person who is up to their level to really understand them. Life is generally hard in the Capricorn world. They struggle hard to get what they want. And a lot of stress comes from that. Capricorns are depressed because they are private people and keep everything to themselves. Sometimes all that anger and stress bottled up in them makes them so emotional when they haven't unleashed it all out. All they really need is a loyal, trusting and understanding friend to listen to them. Unfortunately, not many people are at their level to completely know who they really are.

From here.

Brain fart...

...you know, I'm really working on being the best person I can be. Being a spoiled mama's girl takes a lot out of you - it's good and bad. Good, because it's nice to be take care of so thoroughly, bad because when you're out of the nest, you discover the world isn't so quick to take after mom. I believe in taking care of loved ones, I'm stingy - very stingy and proud of it. Even with my family I'm careful to make sure I get back what I put in, Ma was the only person who deserved unconditional love (which I had to learn, only thinking of myself on a regular basis, I had to catch myself and see if she ever needed anything - at least I did. M(Who I thought was) my best friend has been going through stuff for over a year now, I did my best to help and cheer her up. Even brought her a funny birthday card and a snack and hung out all day in her attic apartment. This past Monday was my birthday. Did I get a card? 'Happy Birthday' sung over the phone (which is a family tradition)? NO! she fucking texts "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" That's it. So now I must go back to my me-first mentatility, I cannot afford to be screwed over anymore, by anyone, you can only run on credit for so long.

Fucking leeches. At least when you feed a stray animal, you know that you're helping them. Bill Hicks said it best, 'we are a virus with shoes.'

Oh Stephen....


Re TCR: on whether author Neil Donald Walsh knows how God expresses exasperation with the phrase 'Oh Bananas!'

Stephen: That sounds like God to me. I mean He wouldn't say 'Oh Pumpkin' becuase he wouldn't take the gourd's name in vain."

I love you so much, but I have to vent: You, I and the Nation had to know that was a horrid line, but with balls so big it was an easy assumption that you wouldn't shy away from setting off such a bomb. Nevertheless, I was so angry with the overpowering corniness that smothered me that I wanted to throw something.

If and when I ever get to a taping of the Repor(t), I will wait for you afterwards and slap you with a fish.
