What's On Your Mind?

Happy Day-After-Christmas Friday!

I'm still feeling the spirit of Christmas! I had the best day with my family yesterday, especially my nephews. Those boys are my heart's joy! I love love love love love them!

Since we didn't have Random Thoughts Thursday yesterday, we can have "Tell Me What's on Your Mind" Friday :-) I don't know how many of you are around - you all may still be recovering from yesterday, out shopping or returning gifts, or just chillin' (hopefully not working) - but if you're around, feel free to post what's on your mind.

On my mind this morning? My sadness at the loss of one of our greatest, most distinctive entertainment icons. With her suggestive, raspy voice, she brought an exotic sensuality and feline verve to all her performances. Called home at the age of 81, this remarkable singer, dancer, actress and self-professed "sex-kitten," will be sorely missed - Ms. Eartha Kitt.



Love her!

What else is on my mind...??? Hmmmm...let's see....

- my nephews have discovered farting in the bathtub....nice.
- I wish my hair was braided up right now. If I could find a decent place in Philly to do it, I would. I just want to shave it all off!
- I have to go to the mall today to return/exchange stuff and I SO don't feel like it!
- Rameer, you can't "out-poke" me!
- I hope the Eagles THRASH the Cowboys this weekend...playoffs or no playoffs.
- ...oh, and Rameer, I still have on my green McNabb jersey...jus sayin' :-)
- I learned how to make Indonesian shrimp fried rice! So tasty!
- Now I need to buy a rice cooker.
- Let's see if I make it to Ballys sometime this weekend.
- I have so many movies to see - 7 Pounds, Milk, the list goes on!
- Thank you to everyone who called or texted me Merry Christmas yesterday!

Okay, that's it. Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

- Many thanks and RIP Eartha Kitt. Not only a great talent, but she made that "no panties" thing a phenomenon for a minute;-)

Brooke said...

Dre, stay your butt in the house and relax! Watch your movie and chill :)

I used to love saying "I don't have any panties on" - even when I did, just to get the reaction :-)

Annamaria said...

Thank you Dre...Brooke YOU ARE A TRIP!!! I think I want to try that! lol...

Brooke said...

I think you can only get away with that for like another 2-3 months, then you better not go around saying that!

Annamaria said...

I better not try to say that now.. Austin would kill me if I tried that crap while carrying his baby! lol... OH WELL... I guess I'll continue eating..LOL..

Brooke said...

yeah, I don't wanna see you get all choked up....literally :-) And your skinny butt could stand to eat a sandwich or two! LOL!

Annamaria said...

GIRL I'm pregnant.. I definitely eat more than a sandwich or two these days..LOL
As a matter of fact I am counting down the minutes til I leave because my mommy is coming to my house to cook dinner... I'M IN HEAVEN!!! :)

Brooke said...

Movies I recommend:

Gran Torino- Eastwood rocks

Cadillac Records- Jeffrey Wright, Columbis Short and Beyonce all did great jobs..

Seven Pounds- sad movie, but good acting..

Brooke said...

I did see Cadillac Records and I agree. I have an invitation to see Gran Torino when I return to NY, supposed to see that on 1/7. I heard 7 Pounds was sad and that I should plan something fun after seeing it so that I won't be in a funk all day :-) Thanks for the suggestions!

My mom loved all her gifts especially the tix to see Alvin Ailey. I'm at work and I feel like Kunta. My Bday is Monday and my party is saturday, Brookey i wish u could be here.

Brooke said...

Where is your party going to be? You didn't tell me about any party :-(

Malek said...

congrats Annamaria and I personally like the name Nicole.....

Any who.....my back is killing me....that's what I get for cleaning out the basement storage area....

I wonder is my husband would get me a maid....If we were in Morocco it would be a done deal...(maids over there are only $10 a day, and they do everything).....

Why is Brahim being a smarty pants today?....He cray cray.......

I need to go to the mall with Brooke but I'm feeling lazy......

Kyce is dying to go out.....


Hope everyone had a great holiday....now on to New Years......
