I believe that like I believe in Santa…

They meant to do it. And I find it somewhat amusing. Is that wrong? Did I mention some of my favorite household items come from China?

very random…

Last night I dreamt about WordPress tags, blogging and the Chicago Bulls of all things.

Did you know that currently your tags are only being represented by two? So say if you wanted to post your stuff in Life, Random, Blogging and Thoughts, more than likely it will only be searchable in Blogging and Thoughts. The others will drop away unless someone randomly finds you while looking in the other categories. Either way, your blog will still be listed under only one other tag. Here’s what I mean.

WTF?

I went into forums  about it, hoping this isn’t some new feature. I like checking out the other tags people list their stuff in because the basic ones can be so BORING. But I read that it’s being fixed in the next 24 hours. However I guess it bothered me so much, I had dreams of pages of pages of tags with one other option. How sad is that? Of all things I could be dreaming about…

Anyway as for the Chicago Bulls, I guess that could be because I talked trash about Isiah Thomas. But he’s with the Knicks. I was a huge Jordan fan. Maybe I was just going with a theme. Well, enjoy the remaining two hours before MAINTENANCE begins…

YUM.

 

 

Bitch, please…

I’m not offended by this word. Hell there is even a magazine named bitch.

When I was in high school, I proudly displayed a sticker on my rear window which read Super Bitch with the Superman “S” in the middle.

I will admit it took me a while to take the word in a warm embrace and one day I just said, “alright—when someone says this to me, it’s always when I’m defending myself or when I’ve gone against the grain.” And then I just decided to wear it like a black dress instead of a chip on my shoulder.

But here we go again with a “celebrity” getting in trouble for name-calling. However this time it’s different. This time we are told that it’s OK to call a black chick a bitch if you are a black male but it’s not OK to do it when you are a white guy. Who said this wonderful tidbit? Mr. Isiah Thomas, New York Knicks coach and president. Read what the fuss is about.

For one thing. Like I said. I don’t care about this word. Even if some guy (or girl for that matter) calls me it when I’ve pissed him or her off. However to be told that it all comes down to race on whether or not it’s OK is just crazy. Because by dissecting it down like that, you are telling me that black people can degrade their own but not let the white folks do it.

I would have preferred if he just fessed up to the word just being derogatory, period. And that he was wrong for saying it. Not announce that because this word is so offensive it can only be used by blacks. What are you trying to tell me then? Blacks can be uncouth all they want but whites have to just sit back and use another word more appropriate for their skin? Bitch is bitch in any race or culture. And does Mr. Thomas realize that his statement just makes us [black folks] look foolish?

Race should give the “privilege” of using words that hurt people? Again, if Thomas were to have said, Don’t forget, you f——— bitch, I’m the president of this f——— team,” to me, I would have laughed in his face. The word bitch isn’t harsh enough to shake my spirit but that’s just me. However Thomas’ alleged following statement, “What the f— is your job? What are your job responsibilities, you f——— ho?” would have got him BITCH-slapped because:

A.) The egotist has just questioned my job ability. A big no-no if you know me. I’m a goal-hungry vixen and he would have regretted the moment he said that.

B.) Bitch I’ll answer to; “ho” will get you a loss of your scrotum.

Some ladies may not agree with me saying that bitch isn’t that big of a deal. Even the intent behind it. I just don’t care. But Thomas is a damn fool to think it’s OK to say it only if you are black.

On August 20 I was a growing blog…

Ah. It’s like a nice and distant memory. Just happy to say it happend once!

So what’s the key to being a growing blog?

So far I’ve noticed that the more religion or controversy (but with a little tact) the better. Oh and it doesn’t hurt to throw in sex and technology. If you do all four at the same time, then you are a genius! Politics: no brainer. And if you mix it up with sex, definite win but gee with the way politics are, both are pretty much synonymous!

Splice in some Facebook talk and a dash of sports.

If you live in New York: bonus points. If you live in New York and write about it: guaranteed win. If you are someone trying to nip at the heels of worthless celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton, triple points. Especially if you mostly cover black celebrities.

If you are a crazed fan who is obsessed with a hottie from Prison Break, you are golden.

There you have it. I will keep adding to this list. Feel free to add to it as well. I’ll give you credit for it.

Here are some so far. There are also some ideas in the comments section…

When college honor goes too far.

Did anyone read the latest on the guy who literally lost his balls  to the fact that he was a UT supporter? Well, sure he kind of egged on that OU guy and he may have been ready to have a real fight about the whole UT shirt wearing thing but still. To rip out someone’s scrotum?!

My assistant is an OSU grad. She was the one who sent me the link today to this story. Being an OSU gal, she keeps up on all things university scandal in the big Okla. This has got to take the cake. The OU/UT thing is HUGE here. Fights break out every year. There is plenty of public intoxication. There is plenty of rough-housing. I think this is a first.

What’s worse (and you really need to read that link above and laugh at the visual on the right that was posted with the story!) is that the guy who “yanked” the jewels so to speak is a deacon! That’s right. A God-fearing Christian pulled another man’s balls off.

Why is college honor so damn important?! I went to a school with no real sports following. We were bad at b-ball, didn’t have a football team and our wheelchair team was really our all-stars (great chaps by the way and gorgeous). We had the regular frats and sororities. I chose not to pledge although both my parents were involved in them. I had no interest. College media was my “thing.”

My father has a brand on his arm honoring his frat and had some strange hazing crap he had to do while in college. However I don’t think the levels of love of one’s university fell into such extremes back then. No matter the ribbing, and compounded with the fact that he is supposed to be a peace-loving person, what on earth could have possibly been said or done to warrant a deacon performing a public maiming?!
