First of all, I'd like to give you all my half-hearted apologies for not posting last week (he he he)... I say half-hearted, because I fully intended on posting a riveting blog last Friday, but I was told that I could go home early --- and I wasn't going to spend another minute in my desk chair, let me tell you. So, I'm sorry I missed it, but I'm glad I went home. It was a long story, but basically it was never relayed back to me that the time I requested to flex, was granted... Nonetheless... Here is what I'm thinking about this week:
Favorite Motivational Meme: Overcome, Learn,Move On...
Favorite Laugh: YMCA
Seriously... You know someone did this! I had to share it with my office, it was so funny!
Favorite Truth: Just Tell the Truth!
“Whoever loves life and wants to see many good days, must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from telling lies." -I Peter 3:10
This has become more and more evident over the past few months, for me. I realized just how much I truly value honesty. I'm not going to lie (pun intended, lol) and say that I've never told a doozey- but as an adult, it should become less and less. It makes me cringe to hear someone lie. I can't deal with that, and recently had to cut ties with a compulsive liar in my life. It's just not a good look. As an adult, you should be confident enough to embrace your life, flaws & all. You should not have to make up a facade, and front like your life is other than what it is. And in relationships, it's especially important. How is someone supposed to really get to know you, if you're not honest with them? Words create a tapestry and you'll notice the snags & holes that lies create, if you're paying attention. It's heart breaking when you realize someone you like or love is a liar. The good thing about life, though, is that sometimes you get to make a decision how close people are with you. With family, often times you're stuck-- but with others, you get to make a choice.
Favorite Food: DiGiorno Stuffed Crust Personal Pan Pizzas (Say that 5 times fast!)
(You just tried it, didn't you? ha ha ha)
Ok, anytime you can cram more cheese into my food, I'm good with that! lol So, imagine my surprise, when I saw this lovely little gem in my grocer's freezer! I've had it twice, and it's delicious! At Pizza Hut, you have to order their stuffed crust in one size (Large) so I was so happy to find this tasty treat. I was bamboozled into thinking that you could only get it in one size... Boy, what a discovery!
Favorite Movie: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2
So, a few entries ago, I told you about me dying to watch Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows 2, right? Well, I finally did it! My sister lent me her copy of the series, and I really enjoyed it! Let me tell ya, I'm so pleased that I decided to watch all of the DVDs, instead of just the one I thought I missed... because, as it turns out, I missed a lot more than that! There were 3 other ones I thought I saw, but hadn't. With Deathly Hallows 2, I ended it feeling glad that it was over. It seemed like a good way to end the series, even though you know they were tricking you, at a certain point. And the "things always happen to these 3 kids" Scooby-doo type theme, was getting old...as much as we appreciate it...
But I also walked away with rather surprising feeling... I could see why the Dark Side was annoyed with Harry Potter, lol. He never really hones his craft as a wizard, most of his "victories" are pure accidents, or aided by other witches, and there is nothing remarkable about him, besides the legend of him & Voltemorte... Harry Potter was a sniveling pip-squeak, really. He was also quite selfish, at times. So why wouldn't the Dark Side, with all its powers, skills, and smarts, not want to kick his a**? lol It was funny.. and why didn't anyone ever realize that whomever they put in for the position of "Dark Arts Professor" was pretty much always the culprit? Anyway... It was an awesome series, and I'm so thankful to have seen it!
Favorite Reality TV: Real Housewives of Atlanta
Have you seen this season, yet... Whew... Chile.. Hold on to your weaves!! For one, there are a few people I'd kick off this season, but the other women bring the drama, baby! I'd kick off Cynthia & Phaedra... but if we get rid of Phaedra, we lose Apollo, and I'm not really willing to let him go, yet, lol.
Cynthia needs to go with her boring self. However, if she's really pregnant (rumor has it) we may need to keep her on. I would kick off Kandi, too, except for the fact that she seems to have a lot of drama between her & Todd, that I'ma need to investigate. It looks like it comes out that Todd's been cheating with one of Kandi's friends, because Kandi goes ALL THE WAY OFF, sometime this season.
Nene has a lot going for her, and I love that she puts fools in check. Somehow, she's become the voice of reason-- which is how you know the show is taking a nosedive, honey. Porsha is really showing a different side, that I like. I didn't like her trying to be "Suzie Homemaker" for Cordell. Don't get me wrong, I love a Suzie Homemaker, but she didn't fit the role very well. It all seemed like an act for her; a role she was playing. She seemed really fake. But, in the light of her divorce, I am seeing a stronger, braver, and more direct Porsha. You can still be Suzie Homemaker & stay your spunky self. I just hope she doesn't go overboard trying to "prove" something... That's where you start losing folks.
Miss Kenya has taken an oath to bring the crazy, once again, we see. I just hope that her attention seeking antics keep us interested. Right now, the show (and Wendy Williams, lol) is hyping up her texting Apollo & whether or not she should be texting him [a married man] even if he texted her first. I wouldn't 'blanket response' this, because it's different strokes for different folks, but in this case, Kenya is WRONG-- but so is Apollo.
I believe that Apollo isn't happy married to Phaedra. I think when they got together, he saw dollar signs & she saw... well, what we all see, lol (Dude is freak'n HOT!!!)... But since the birth of their kids (Aiden & Dylan), there seems to be an evident division between the two of them. Then last season, there were divorce rumors swirling, followed by a lot of publicity stunting... and now a new baby as "proof" that they're "still in love", but I don't buy it. I think that in reality, Apollo could've had a weak moment, and Kenya did try to sink her teeth in, on first sight. Now, my question is, "What really happened, tho...?" Did they actually hook up & now he's feeling guilty? Did he entertain her flirting, because he was being neglected by Phaedra & when it got out of hand, he tried to flip the script? Did someone text the other, by means of "blackmail"? Who's really lying here? According to Apollo, his story has always been that she came on to him & offered herself sexually, and he declined (Hmph). But, Kenya also did make up the fact that she & Walter were dating, engaged, was pressuring him about getting married, too... Then when it got out that she was lying & paid Walter to play her boyfriend, so she could be on the show... she tried to say he was gay. I'd love to see how this all ends... and thank Jesus everyday, it's not my life!
Well, that's it for this week, Folks! Let me know what's going on with you, either here or on Facebook! See ya soon!
