Its All a Blur

I've been absent for a while, and so much has happened since I last posted. I could simply justify disappearance on grieving the death of Michael Jackson *pause* (lol), but no, I've just been immensely busy, starting a new job next week, training my replacement for my current job, and just trying to have as much fun as I could before I'm consumed by WORK. So lets jump into whats happened lately....

The BET Awards hosted this year by Jamie Fox *pause*, was the most disgraceful display of coonery if there was ever one. But before we get ahead of ourselves. A host is usually assumed to be funny and overall entertaining, all of which Mr. Fox was not. He performed more than he hosted, and the entire show was filled with his self promotion. I am yet to laugh at one of this ill conceived jokes and downright lethargic sense of humor. This was no tribute to Michael Jackson but more of a ratings bonanza for BET. It fell short in so many ways. From the "Baby Boy" skit, which was in poor taste, to the Drake and Lil Wayne performance with little girls dancing on the stage to "I wish i could f**k every girl in the world" *pause*. To go into detail would only bring back the horrible memories of this night. Tribute it was lacking...but vulgarity, and ill preparation was in abundance. I will definitely not be tuning in next year.


"Frank M. Lombard, the Duke University researcher accused of offering his adopted 5-year-old son for sex." And the crowd says "WTF". Yes, aldeis and gentlemen there are still sick people roaming around, and not the usually creepy looking guys lurking in alleyways, but our University officials who we hold to a higher moral standard. But according to the article Mr. Lombard performed sexual acts on his adopted son and invited an undercover investigator online to do the same.


I don't know really, I guess not that much happened after :]

Stay tuned for the frenzy, and keep your eye on that countdown, which will be posted.

Apartment Woes Pt. 1

Well I recently moved out on my own. No more mommy doing my laundry, and cleaning up after me. I don't like that part of it at all. However, I do get to face new challenges, like taking out the trash, and washing dishes. Remembering to lock the door, and to check the mail. Keeping track of the bills and...well, you know all that grown-up stuff you never want to get used to doing.

With the good comes the bad, and the crazy neighbors. I do like my community, for the most part its GREAT. But this week things seemed to have gone haywire. From the loud bangings on the apartments next door, to angry cats fighting under my window. And tonight the teenaged boys hanging out back of the building spewing obscenities and making crude jokes, all which I heard because it seemed like they were screaming through my window. >:O Oh I wanted to call the police...but refrained. Only to have them pull their cars under my window blaring Michael Jackson's 'Scream" :D, now I can sleep.

Michael Jackson Dies

Today Michael Jackson died. Reports state he suffered cardiac arrest at his home, and was pronounced dead upon his arrival at UCLA Medical Center. Michael Jackson was and will always be a LEGEND. The memories his music created and was a part of growing up will forever be with me. From listening to Thriller and Bad with my father as a little girl. Watching his videos and copying the dance moves, I never did master the moonwalk. I am saddened to hear of his death.

I don't agree with much of what he's done in his personal life, and who am I to judge. But his talent surpasses whatever internal struggles he faced throughout his life. He was indeed a musical visionary, and multi-talented individual without a doubt. There will never be another performer like him. There will never be another musical genius like him. He is the single most famous human being, no corner of the world is there any doubt who Michael Jackson is. He has accomplished what others merely dream of. Its easy to look at the bizzare behavior and court trials, its easy to look and his ever changing physical features, but what about his great humanitiran efforts. Lest we forget all the good he's done.

I pray for his family, that they have peace during this difficult time. He will forever be missed.

Gadgets Galore

So while perusing the T-Mobile website as I consider getting a new cell phone something catches my eye. Its the new T-Mobile My Touch 3G, with Google. From what I can gather from the website its the G1 but without the keypad. Coupled with 3G technology its a winner in my book. Although I don't have the luxury of getting an insider's scoop or getting access test out the phone I think its safe to say it'll be a hit. I'm already considering holding off on getting the G1 and waiting the few weeks to get this new gadget.

T-Mobile customers can begin to reserve their My Touch starting July 8th, 2009, with an expected shipping in August. And being the loyal T-Mobile customer I am that includes me :).

Bill Maher Takes on Obama

I posted this video about a week or two ago on my Facebook, but that was before I started this blog, so I decided to re-post it here. And I have to agree with Bill Maher, I don't want a celebrity for a President. Check it out!

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Behold .

This new website which I came across this weekend is a godsend for shoe lovers across the globe. Founded by Kim Kardashian "ShoeDazzle's fashion experts choose the hottest shoes for you every month based on YOUR individual personality and tastes. The shoes we pick for you will express your individuality and sense of style. Distinctive, yet trend-right. (quoted from the website)" All for a nominal fee of $39 a pair per month *gasp*. You are presented with five pairs of shoes to choose from each month and choose one and its shipped to you, FREE. The shoe selections are presented to you based on your preference determined by a minor survey you take when you initially sign up.

If this isn't a fantastic idea I don't know what is. I'm going to SIGNUP, and I'll definitely be back with an expert review of the site and their services. Check it out and let me know what you all think...I know I'm loving it and I haven't even gotten a pair of shoes yet!
