Important read about Ferguson

I came across this today on the old Book Face. I think it is an important piece to read for white people. I am certainly not trying to change or derail the discussion about Ferguson by posting this piece. I think the text says a lot about why it is important to speak out and lend support and be a strong ally.… » 8/20/14 12:54pm 8/20/14 12:54pm

Independent Lens episode

The Trials of Muhammad Ali aired on Independent Lens on 4/14/14. You should definitely check it out. You can find it at PBS dot com. Check it out I am sure you will enjoy it. He is an icon for black empowerment. He was a stellar athlete as well as a brilliant man. I won't recap it here, watch for yourself... » 4/16/14 9:55pm 4/16/14 9:55pm

Oh Boy, oh boy, OH BOY!

I have succumb to my F.O.M.O. and I ordered the Game of Thrones book set on Amazon. I had checked out purchasing the series once before but the set was pretty pricey. Right now they have the set for < $30, with Amazon Prime, so no shipping added! » 4/15/14 1:36pm 4/15/14 1:36pm

Snack Cravings

My office is currently full, FULL I tell ye, of Girl Scout cookies. The building management also brought the monthly candy dish supply Monday. They brought Riesens, one of my most favorite candies. And now I have been on a sugar binge for three days and I am seriously craving something salty. I want these: » 3/05/14 12:31pm 3/05/14 12:31pm

Shameless Plug for PBS

Hey y'all! Just want to take a moment to shamelessly plug PBS. They air an awesome show called Independent Lens. Independent Lens, for those of you not in the know, highlights independent film makers and their educational documentaries. Right now, since it is Black History Month, they are airing independent films… » 2/06/14 11:51pm 2/06/14 11:51pm

Shhhh! Be vewy, vewy qwiet....We're hunting Drama Llamas....

OMG, y'all the drama llama has infultrated my office! Maybe he seeped through from my phone or computer while I was reading GT? I don't know how else he got in...I sit by the front door and I certainly wouldn't let him just waltz right past me.
Some of the effects of Drama Llama on my office -
1. Incessant pacing and… » 1/23/14 12:35pm 1/23/14 12:35pm

You Guys I went to a girls night.....

I had too much red wine and a special electronic cigarette. It was a lovely evening. What have you all been doing tonight? It's 40 degrees in Chi-Town, 80 degrees warmer than about 3 days ago. People have lost their minds, it's a heat wave, y'all. What are you doing to cool off in this balmy weather? » 1/11/14 2:49am 1/11/14 2:49am

Crafting assistance

Hello friends! Happy New Year to you all. I need some assistance with purchasing yarn to make an Irish flag pattern scarf for a dear friend. He is fighting mouth cancer and has to keep his face covered. I offered to knit him a scarf and he asked for the Irish flag. Now I know that I need white, green and orange… » 1/02/14 5:48pm 1/02/14 5:48pm

Not to beat a dead horse...."

But I have some things that have been rattling around my head since this whole thing blew up/imploded/became a shit storm with Killer Martinis. This post actually has nothing to do with her specifically or her "Thoughts on Poverty". What I need to get out of my brain and onto paper is my problem with the mind set of… » 12/07/13 2:29pm 12/07/13 2:29pm

Comfy Couch

So Mr. Fun had too much fun tonight and left the bar before me. I came home a couple of hours later and as soon as I got near the bedroom door I could hear him snoring. Guess I am taking the couch tonight...Good thing there are blankies and a pillow already out here. Oh and also got some clean pj's from the dryer. … » 12/07/13 4:02am 12/07/13 4:02am

Late night ramble...(Update)

So tonight was date night with Mr. Fun and we went to a great restaurant and have a wonderful meal and an awesome server. (In relation to an earlier post about tipping - she was so great we gave her 30%+. She deserved every penny.) After dinner, I went to a friends place to help her pack. This is where the ramble… » 11/23/13 4:20am 11/23/13 4:20am

My very racist Halloween encounter

To keep with the spirit of Halloween and the article over on Jez, with the wonderfully long comment thread about Walt Disney and his racist portrayal of EVERYONE (except white Americans), I thought I would regal y'all with a tale of blatant double racism. I live in an area highly populated by night clubs. It provides… » 11/01/13 12:22pm 11/01/13 12:22pm

My Dearest Hivemind: Fashion Help, Please!

Hello All! I hope Monday hasn't messed with you too badly! I need some help. I am looking for a very.specific style of purse. I do not even know if it exists.
