R.I.P Mike

I'm feeling some kind of way right now. This is the firs time that a celeb has passed away that I've felt like someone punched me in my gut. Yeah I was sad about Biggie and Pac but not like this!

You can say what you want about Mike but he IS a legend. I remember being in 6th grade and having a debate about who was better Michael Jackson or VanHalen(yes I went to school with mostly white kids...matter of fact there was only one other black kid in my class).Anyway I fought so hard for Mike like he was family and NO ONE could disrespect him! At the end of the day I won the debate. How many times can you count that you'd run home to watch a world premire with your entire family! The only time I can remember is when anything from Mike was coming on.

On my facebook a lot of people commented that I was the one who got them to like Mike or that they remember me having the life size poster of Mike in the yellow vest hanging on my wall along with the life sized poster of Michael Jordan. It's funny what people remember. So many people have emailed or called me to tell me funny stories about my Michael Jackson obsession. My friend Gina said she remembers me going to the mall with her when she bought her first MJ poster and all the rings, pins and magazines I had. Three people called my parents house to get my number so they could talk to me. I haven't spoke to any of these people since highschool. My best friend who still lives in the town I grew up in went out to dinner last night and three people from HS came up to her and asked how I was doing. My sister who is eight years older than me called me in tears yesterday. Just Friday me,my sis and my 14year old nephew drove from here to Baltimore and my nephew asked me if I had any MJ. I just bought the 25th anniversary too! So we bumped it from start to finish and my nephew knew damn near all the songs and he's only 14! It just goes to show how his music crossed over!

I know to some mourning the loss of someone you never met seems strange but to me this is a piece of my childhood that has died.You never know how someone will impact your life. Michael represented a part of my youth that was innocent and fun! It makes me think of being a little kid(like 3-4) and seeing my brother and sister dancing to him. I'm thankful that my mom stood in line and got me damn near front row tickets to the Jackson Victory Tour! Plus she fed into my obession by buying me EVERYTHING Michael!

R.I.P Michael! You will truly be missed and thank you for providing me with endless songs to dance to!

Yes, I'm a slacker

I've slacked all week on blogging! I thought I'd do better because I was on a roll of blogging three times a week! But I failed miserably! I have my reasons though. I've been trying to plan this birthday party I'm throwing for myself and my sister and nephew flew in on Wednesday and I had some MAJOR cleaning to do! But I promise I'll do better. Next week is my birthday week so I'm going to try and post at least 4 times! Pray for me y'all!

*Side note* My 14 year old nephew, Darian told me yesterday how much he loved me and this has been the best trip! Ahh the little things that make you smile! Have a good weekend everyone. I'm off to Baltimore and DC to meet the rest of the fam for the weekend!

What the hell Thursday

This post is just going to be a bunch of what the hell or why the hell!

What the hell is going on in the NYS Senate. A coup for real? Is it that bad that two Dems deflected and went with the Republicans and now there's a lock out at the state capitol. C'mon NY we gotta do better!

D.O.A- Death of Autotone. I don't like the song because I'm not feeling the beat! Although I do like what Jay is saying but damn you nappy why couldn't you get Pharell or Dre to produce the beat! But I agree with your ass!

Poor Laura Ling and Euna Lee. They were sentenced to 12 years hard labor in North Korea for essentially doing their job! They were arrested in March while they were working on a story about trafficking of North Korean women across the Chinese border!

Crazy women from Oregon cut open a women and took her baby. Needless to say both the baby and woman died? Damn is is that real? Go find a man and get on it! Murder??

A high school football coach and another man killed a cocaine dealer to avoid paying a debt, dismembered his body and then proceeded to cook his ass! All because they didn't want to pay THEIR 70k debt! it that real?

R.I.P David Carradine. What was really going on in that hotel room? Dude was 70 years old and found hanging with his nutz tied.

R.I.P to the people who died in the explosion at the Slim Jim plant. I really hope they weren't around where they make them because I really like the Tabasco ones! I guess it wouldn't really matter if I was to nibble on a little human since I have no idea what's in those beyatches anyway! LOL!

I heard the new Denzel and Travolta movie "Pelham 123" is very good. I didn't realize it was a remake.

It's my birthday month and I'm throwing myself a fabulous Old School hip hop party on June 27th. If y'all are in BK come by! My actual bday is June 28th so I'm going to whoop it in!

I have that itch to move again. I'm tryin to repress it but it's not working! I don't usually stay in once city for more than 4 years and I'm hitting that 4 year marker! Ohh what to do?

I was told today that in a few years I will need reading glasses. Oh word it's like that! I'm not going down without a fight! I've had 20/20 vision forever and today I was told my vision is 20/25! Y'all know I cried and called the Teacher and he thought something was really wrong and was going to leave his bad ass middle school kids until I told him why I was whining and crying! He said "Bye Chelle" LMBAO! Whe that boy thinks I'm a nut and still stays for more of the show! Hehhehe!

Every morning I walk past a group of about 8 boys. They can't be more than 21. One of them says "Hi Miss Lady" everyday and I always say "hi" back. Yesterday after he said it one of the other boys said "who's that" He said "I don't know her but SHE'S my lady." Ahahhaha! I got a chuckle out of that!

R.I.P to Stephen Johns. He's the guard that was killed at the Holocaust Museum in DC yesterday by the 88 year old white supremacist. He thought he was holding the door open for an elderly man but it ended up being a cold blooded murderer!

Last but not least: WHAT THE F&*k is going on with all this dayum rain?

What's going on random in your world?

So Beautiful

I don't know about y'all but when I hear the Musiq song So Beautiful it really makes me think. The way he speaks about this woman is the way I think most women would want their man to feel about them. This song is absolutely beautiful to me! It takes me back to a time in my life where I had the type of love he's singing about. I can't wait till I experience love like this again!

PS. I blame this on The Jaded Nyer she has all of us getting soft! LOL!

So Beautiful lyrics

[Verse 1:]
You're my baby
My lover, my lady
All night you make me
Want you it drives me crazy
I feel like you
Were made just for me babe
Tell me if you
Feel the same way

Cuz it just feels so right
I don’t wanna waste no time
If I had to choose I know
Im gon always choose to be with you
Cuz girl don’t you know

Girl don’t You know you're so beautiful
I wanna give all my love to you girl
Not just tonight but the rest of your life
I wanna be always here by your side

[Verse 2:]
When you're not here
You don’t know how much I miss you
The whole time on my mind
Is how much Im gonna get to make
You feel so good like you know I could
Tell me if you
Feel the same way

Cuz it just feels so right
I don’t wanna waste no time
Girl if I had to choose I know
Im gon always choose to be with you
Cuz girl don’t you know
