Where are they now? Another Bad Creation

I just found the "Coolin' at the Playground (Ya Know)" album again and I fell in love all over. So I wanted to know how these guys are doing nowadays...I'm sorry I asked...but you'll laugh. Instantly

Thirsty or Persistence?


Last week Mr. Gaines wrote a beautiful couple of posts (going to get that book by stormie) and was a cameo in a video with J and announced he was getting married (lovely)! This made me think maybe he could help me with my male issue of the week (lol) as well as others. Last summer I talked to a guy for a couple of weeks and it dissolved itself after I felt like God as giving me RED flags about this young man.  He took me to a very expensive restaurant on our first date that I didn't chose but continously talked about the amount dinner was after we eat it and he offered to pay!  He's very ambitious, which is appealing to any woman but only in moderation, everything we talked about was him getting money, what he would do with it and how self conscious he was about his looks!

I had a enough and I let him know maybe we weren't meant to be...
He just didn't get it and he called me over winter break to discuss why we stopped talking.
I told him the same thing I said in July about him being materialist and self conscious but maybe I was being too nice.  It's June now and he's popped up again! Curse facebook chat because that's his tool to get to me without my number.  He says he's having on these issues and I helped him by talking to him. I asked him "why do you want to still talk to me?" He says I changed his view of women; I was cool to hang out with like one of the guys but still the girl he liked and I had swag (his words not mine)!  He constantly acted like we're talking again and we're not and I've tried explain that it takes baby steps to get even to friend status with me right now.  He calls/texts everyday now...what do i need to do to let him know we're probably won't talk again but we could be friends (on a trial basis) if he calms down.

Kid Sis needs help is this being thirsty or just persistence?

Books I Like #1

Recommended Reading


Greetings All! A few months ago Sir J. Kwest highly recommended Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist as a must read text. In the spirit of literacy and in my quest to end aliteracy (the ability/refusal to read), I am recommending two other books for that list. The first is Stormie Omartian's book The Power of a Praying Husband. Now, she wrote the book for married men who want to improve their relationships with God and their wives, but I have found quite helpful as young brother on the verge of marriage. Essentially, it is about the complexity and multidimensionality of women and how men, through their relationship with God and pray, can better support their women. She also has a "companion" book for wives and a book for single women. I learned an enormous amount from the book and I think it can provide some clarity for any married man or man considering marriage. 
The second book I am recommending is The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis. This book is satirical in its approach, but it is rich in thought provoking religious and socio-cultural commentary. I have not finished the book yet, so I don't have a full review or anything, but I wanted to at least say that its dope and I think its a good read (thus far at least). Stay tuned! I will be back with more recommendations. LovLiv!

June 3-Day: Detoxificate Yourself



I explained my three-day fast (for regular detox purposes) and I just wanted to announce that today begins the June situation. Actually, the MAY situation (this month caught up with me fast), and we'll have ANOTHER during the last week of June.

I'm starting Monday morning, but that may be late notice. Therefore, starting Tuesday at 12:01 am and ending in 72 hours (that would be Thursday at midnight). You know you want to join, because you feel fat (unfortunately, if you live in America, you probably are). If you're feeling froggy, feel free to join. Here's how it works:

If it's not in this picture, you can't eat it. Can't add anything to it. Enjoy
