It has been 47 weeks since my Facebook and Twitter avatars have changed to a picture of Trayvon Martin. The wheels of justice truly grind slowly. Let’s not let the tragedy fade into the darkness of the night, let’s continue to shine a bright light until justice is served and laws change.
OMG!! There’s a chicken wing shortage?! What will Hooters, Wingstop, and Buffalo Wild Wings do?
February 2, 2013 is a destination television night. Lifetime premieres, “Betty & Coretta” starring Mary J. Blige and Angela Bassett as civil rights legends Dr. Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is an example of an attention whoring, out of touch, simple minded, bigot for suggesting that President Obama resign because Beyoncé may have lip-synced the national anthem. Paul’s statement: “By lip synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term….The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.” Please join me in shouting to the Senator to, “S#$% THE F#$% UP!!”
WTH? Gasoline prices are on the rise. Doesn’t anyone realize the higher the price of gas the less money we have. The less money we have the less we buy. The less we buy the less profit businesses earn. The less business earn the less people they staff and hire. The worse our economy becomes. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this ish out.
I knew Subway was suspect on their foot long sandwiches. Damn, I should’ve thought of measuring one. Can the lawsuit against them be a class-action? I believe missing a half to a full inch deserves a refund.
Congratulations to Sloane Stephens and Serena Williams; the future and present of American women’s tennis.
Congratulations also to Isabel dos Santos, Africa’s first female BILLIONAIRE!!! You are an example to everyone in the diaspora.
Have you ever had a moment when you see or hear from a particular person and it’s like a jolt of electricity going thru your body and your mood instantly improves? They could recite the dictionary and you wouldn’t care. It’s the fact that they are there and present in the moment with you. Treasure that. Cherish that. Appreciate that and the person who gets you that way.
Google Fiber is anticipating nation-wide “fiber to the premises” service by 2015. I can’t wait until I can have 1 Gbps in my “fiber-hood” in Kansas City. You should be excited too! Google is changing the paradigm for internet and cable television providers. Customers will now have a true choice.
So will Captain Kirk and Spock be visiting Tatooine? Will they be shaking hands or mind-melding with Darth Vader? I like J.J. Abrams and his brilliance but, I’m not sure him helming two of the holy grails in science fiction is the right thing.
Jim Buss is learning not to place pride or any personal feelings ahead of making money and winning. Hiring Mike D’Antoni was a mistake. A boss needs to understand the skills of his workers to hire the best person to bring out the best in their workers. The Lakers based on the current roster was best suited to the triangle not run and gun, especially with the two bigs- Howard and Gasol. Whatever the personal issues or poor consultants that clouded his decision making, Buss should have done whatever it took to hire Phil Jackson. Sorry Laker fans, you have been robbed and hood-winked!
Hopefully Twinkies, Ho-Ho’s, Ding Dongs, Suzy Q’s, etc. will return to supermarket shelves soon. My stash is almost depleted! According to the Washington Post, 11 companies have bids to acquire the brands. I can’t wait!
Miss Bumbum 2012 (that’s right, I don’t make this stuff up), Carine Felizardo strolled thru Times Square showing her bum in a bikini yesterday. She must’ve frozen that bum bum off! It was freezing in NYC. It would’ve been nice to see her though. It’s possibly the most risqué Times Square has been in a decade!
Till the next time, love yourself and each other….Peace!!
