Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

- I'm over winter.

- I loved President Obama's speech yesterday at the memorial service in Tuscon, AZ. Regardless of his politics and whether or not you believe he's doing a good job or not - the man has a heart and integrity. His words were uplifting, he gives me hope.

- Today is the funeral for the youngest victim in the Arizona shootings - 9 year old Christina Green - the little girl born on September 11th, 2001. President Obama said, "I want us to live up to her expectations, I want our democracy to be as good as Christina imagined it. I want America to be as good as she imagined it. All of us - we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children's expectations." In heaven, he said, if there are rain puddles, Christina is jumping in them today. "And here on this Earth, we place our hands over our hearts, and commit ourselves as Americans to forging a country that is forever worthy of her gentle, happy spirit." Keep her family and friends in your prayers.

- Also, continue to keep Haiti in your prayers. A year later, they still need our help. Every little bit helps.

- This morning, a woman was standing in front of my company's building wearing a big sign that said "I regret my abortion." That was sad, but curious why she decided to stand there with the sign? I said a small prayer for her as I walked inside.

- My new favorite cereal is Life Cinnamon :-)

- I have boring chicken breasts and broccoli for lunch :-(

- Prince added another show at the Garden - he's tempting me!

- Janet Jackson is coming in March - what to do!? Can Janet still bring it??

- Busy work day for me. Glad we have a long weekend coming up!

- I'd rather have pizza for lunch today.

- "The Game" premiered to 7.7 million viewers on Tuesday night on BET. Not sure how many of you watch the show but I'm glad it made its way back on air! The premiere was okay, hope it gets better! There's NO WAY the Tasha Mack I know would be afraid of Kellie Pitts :-) The "new" Brittany" is wack, and Melanie was dead wrong! If you don't watch the show, you have no idea what I'm talking about :-)

- The gym is too crowded. I can't wait for folks to start falling off on their resolutions so I can get an elliptical machine ;-) I know, that wasn't nice...but you know what I mean :-)

- This week's throwback! Brian says, "is this beat and bass line sick or what?!" LOL!

First Bitches!!!!!

Yolanda said...

-Obama speech was excellent. He's very reminiscent of a Baptist preacher in the way he ebbs and flows with it and finishes strong. I thought his words were poignant and didn't point fingers in the way others have done with their words (*looking at YOU Sarah Palin with your "blood libel" comment*).

-Pandora is giving me everything today.

-Life is....... something.

-"The Game" was just ehh for me. It really did not need to be an hour. Don't fill in every hole...leave something for shows 2-8. But I will give it another shot next week.

-And WHO thought it would be good for Tasha Mack to puff on a Black & Mild?

-I love TJ Holmes. CNN should make him do all the newscasts.

-Confession: "This Is How We Do It" just came on my Pandora station. That's my sing in the shower song. I'm particularly strong on the "ya gotta get yo groove on" vocal.

-I need to move my vision board. It's on my dresser behind the wig heads (LOL...hey, I like to switch it up sometimes). There must be some Feng shui on where you're supposed to put it in your house. The wigs might be blocking my good karma.

-"Hoarders" nearly killed me this week. RATS? Roaming free? R A T S ???

-I turned the heat off last night. When I woke up, it was 55 degrees in here. That was not smart.

-More later...perhaps.

Brooke said...

The vision board needs to be where you can see it...VISION! LOL! I just need to make one.

Facebook finally got me with the new profile...dangit

Hoarders is crazy. But I love reading people's reactions to it on FB ;)

I need to get up on this Pandora.

I thought Tasha smoking was odd too - like who STARTS smoking in their 40's? Wackness.

Jay said...

I watched The Game and wasn't that impressed. It was too much too soon, like Yolanda said. I got caught up on all the episodes during the marathons to see what all the fuss was about, and Tuesday's episode just didn't "feel" the same as the old ones. Ehh, we'll see.

But good for BET for their ratings.

That second show was terrible. Won't be watching.

Go Jets!

Sorry about the Eagles B.

President Obama's speech was heartfelt and appropriate. We need to hear some sense and compassion in times like these, and he delivered on both.

Pizza for lunch sounds like a plan.

Yes, Brian is correct, the beat and bassline on that joint IS sick!

Annamaria said...

1. I am going back to tasing these clowns that want to comment first. TASING Ant..

2. This Winter crap is RIDICULOUS...

3. Nothing bad can come out of President Obama's mouth.. LOL Although I beg a fool to mess with him.

4. God Bless all the victims & injured in AZ...

5. That shooter looked CRAZY..I knew it from the moment I saw his pic that he was crazy I don't know why no one else knew.

6. I've been in a very wintery blues sort of mood. Winter is just depressing.

7. It's ridiculous how much needs to be done in Haiti ya if that was someplace else it would have been rebuilt already...

8. Brooke Know what else comes in March??? MY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Annamaria said...

What was up with the crazy Indian chief prayer at the begining of the Arizona memorial service yesterday...

And how did Ted Williams life go soo wrong soo fast???

Yolanda said...

I can see the vision board. The wigs are just blocking the lower left quadrant which is the LOVE section. Go figure. LOL.

Moving it TODAY!

Brooke said...

wait...we need "sections" on the Vision Board?? I need a tutorial!

My birthday is coming up in February Annamaria! Mine first!

What Ted Williams is going thru would be hard for ANY person to handle, let alone a recovering addict. He needs a's too much too soon. You can't go from homeless to Hollywood overnight and not hit a few bumps. I'm praying for him.

Serena W. said...

RTT! Hi everyone!

Yolanda, Happy Founders Day Soror! OO-OOP! 98 years strong!

Prez Obama makes me cry in a good way because his words are real and mean something. Thank God for him.

God bless those gone and injured in AZ.

Haiti doesn't get enough press at all. No one talks about the devestation any more. Sad. Prayers to them.

I want some pizza now.

My 36th birthday is on Sunday! Holler!

It feels weird with my birthday coming up and mom not here. I pray for a special day and will have the memories of the, "I remember how much pain I felt after having you..." lol. Miss you mommy.

I loved Onyx back in the day!

When my friend comes down we are getting Mexican food! Shrimp Quesadillas!

Trader Joes will be my friend on Saturday morning to do my grocery shopping :) I love that place.

Insomnia hasn't been my friend for 2 nights now (sigh).

Found a pair of running shoes (good ones) for $54.95! Marked down from $110.00 (note to everyone...get them when they are about to discontinue them and get the discount)!

Working from home today because I'm exhausted.

Brooke I'll take that chicken and brocoli. Can you tell I'm hungry?

I need to update my vision boards.

More later....

Did I already say my birthday is Sunday ;) lol.

Anthony Otero said...

- I still feel bad for Michael Vick.

Serena W. said...

Ant are you for real! He lost it. Wow...I'll call him myself and give it to him.

Happy Bloganniversary to you too!

Annamaria said...

Serena, your bday is already on my Calendar.. yours tooooo Brooke...

Brooke you coming to dinner this weekend... Sunday would work for me.. JUST SAYIN...LOL

Ted Williams needs me to be his life coach.. Everytime he even thinks of slipping up I'll be there to tase dat ass... I really am rooting for him though I love a good underdog story

Yolanda said...

Happy Founders, Serena.

And happy birthday to all y'all with bdays coming up. You shameless birthday and blog anniversary pluggers LOL (don't worry...I will do the same when May 10th rolls around).

Yes, there's an order to the vision board (or so says the Google link I found when I made mine). There are even "blank checks from the Universe" you can print out and sign them over to yourself in hopes of drawing more money to yourself. I'd rather just pray about things and work, but hey, if this poster board helps a little bit too then I'm down.

Geeque said...

@Latinegro - I agree, Detroit-187 is a great show!!!!

Geeque said...

DMoe's list makes me smile.

But how is ATL shut down? It ain't even that cold down there!

Janet Jackson is coming?? I'm there! I don't care how OLD she is!

I love the show The Game but I hated all the women's hair, especially Kelly's!

I need a vision board too! Can I get an example of what one looks like?

Brooke, can I have some cheesecake?

I thought the headphones were beats by Diddy?

Brooke said...

I may be able to make cheesecake, we'll see :-)

Good luck with the app Ant!

I don't know who to root for in football anymore. I want the Jets to win, but Tom Brady is gonna handle that.

Yolanda said...

God luck Ant!

There are actually some videos on YouTube about how to make a vision board.
Here's a link also:


Brooke said...

Thanks Yolanda!

I may try to make one this weekend - I have a gazillion magazines.
