White Wedding, Eh?

29 October 2008 at 3:18 pm (Funny Things, Random, Why Is This News?) (, , , , , , )


OK. I have NO idea who this girl is but my best friend just passed along this link and I’m sitting here like: really? are you serious? you can’t be serious?

This chick hasn’t seen the inside of classroom since she was 9 years old yet her father has shelled out a shitload of dough for her wedding!? She is 16! What in the klunderfuck is going on? And she could’ve chose a MUCH better dress as she’s pouring out of it, but I guess that’s the look she wanted. Clearly, we know her dad didn’t pay for the material used, seeing as how there is barely any of it. And don’t most brides try to tone up for their wedding? And are those breast implants!?

So many things wrong here. I don’t even know where to begin. This is overkill, though.

A Tragedy Is A Tragedy

28 October 2008 at 10:04 am (Celebrity, News) (, , , , , , , , , )


In light of Hudson family muder mystery, I wanted to write a blog on something that was expressed to me last night:

“Yea, I feel bad for her and all but it’s not like I  know her or anything. I didn’t know her mom. Why am I  gonna get all upset about it?”

Heartless is how I look at that comment. I’m sorry. Famous or not, someone lost their mother, their brother. Someone lost their CHILD. Apparently, this person isn’t the ONLY one with this attitude. Some people don’t  seem to understand why there is so much media attention surrounding this story. I, for one, am floored that people would have to ask such a question. They’re saying it’s because jennifer Hudson is famous. I disagree. I don’t even think thats it. A tragedy is a tragedy.  I’m sure her celebrity plays a part but it’s moreso the sensational and brutal nature of the crime. And of course, there was a missing child, whom has since been found dead. Think about the stories you hear in the news of murder and kidnapping. Lacy Peterson wasn’t famous at all.

Regardless of what the situation is, a family was torn apart. A family is in mourning and suffering. The public has the right to be upset. Her fans have the right to be upset. What’s so wong with being a compassionate human? The matriarch of the Hudson family was murdered. Her son and grandson’s lives cut short. Who cares WHY this story is getting all the media attention. Pray for the family of these victims and don’t question why.

You don’t have to KNOW someone to display empathy. This is a horrific crime. Point blank, period. End of story. Compassion goes a long way here. 

At the end of the day I don’t understand how people can sit there and say things like that. I’m a compassionate human being and I feel the same way for Jennifer’s family as I did for Lacy’s family and any other story I’ve heard in recent memory. Empathy is a HUMAN emotion. Not an emotion only saved for the people we are familiar with. 

For those people that are guilty of this crime. You are (a) coward(s). You are disgusting and I hope you are caught and charged to the fullest extent of the law. To murder anyone, is of course wrong, but to harm and/or kill an innocent child, in my eyes, is one of the most heinous crimes one could ever commit.

All I can do is be thankful I’m not in Jennifer’s shoes because God only knows how she and the rest of her family are coping and holding up. I wouldn’t wish for anyone to have to go through something like this. My prayers and thoughts are with them at this time.

Jennifer Hudson’s Mom Found Murdered

24 October 2008 at 7:35 pm (Celebrity, News) (, , , , )


Horrifying breaking news.

According to official reports, actress and singer Jennifer Hudson’s mother was found murdered in her Chicago home.

According to TMZ, Jennifer’s brother Jason was also murdered. Here is their report:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jennifer Hudson’s mother was one of two victims shot and killed in Chicago earlier today.

A neighbor tells TMZ the other victim was Jennifer’s brother Jason. A cousin who lived nearby discovered the bodies.

We’re told the two bodies were found dead on the scene at 2:44 PM. When the fire department arrived and discovered the bodies were already dead, police were brought in and the home was declared a crime scene.


UPDATE Police suspect that Jennifer’s 7-year-old nephew may have been taken from the scene. Police are looking for 1994 white Suburban with license plate X584859. If you see this vehicle, please call 9-1-1.

 

My prayers go out tonight to Jennifer and her family at this horrible time. I can only imagine what’s going on inside her head right now.

Halloween Candy Alert *PLEASE READ*

22 October 2008 at 4:55 pm (Beauty, Health & Fitness, Family, News) (, , , , , , , , , , , )


With Halloween fast approaching comes a warning to parents and kids regarding Sherwood brand Pirate’s Gold milk chocolate coins imported from China .The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat,  distribute or sell the candy.

It is sold across Canada by Costco and may also have been sold in bulk packages or as individual pieces at various dollar and bulk stores.

The chocolate contains melamine which is the same chemical responsible for killing several babies in China , and sickening thousands more.

 

 

Usually around this time of year you hear all kinds of rumours and false stories about defective candy and whether or not this is true I’m heeding the warning because I’ve read about the Melamine issue over in China for awhile now.

Parents, you should already be checking your children’s candy extensively but be on particular lookout next weekend.

Protect your little ones!

Why Should I Lower My Standards To Be Happy?

21 October 2008 at 10:38 am (Love & Relationships, Rants) (, , , , , , , , , , )


I’ve been thinking about something my girl asked me on Saturday night, while at dinner. It left a large enough impression obviously, to evoke some thought and a  blog.

During a discussion, I had said something along the lines of, “There aren’t many men with their shit together these days” and she asked me, point blank: “Would you ever date someone that’s ugly?” and I looked at her like she was crazy! “Heck no!”, was my reply and she’s like, “Well, there u go. A lot of ugly men have their shit together.” She sure shut me up. lol.

I felt kinda bad but then I didn’t. Here’s why. Ugly is a matter of personal preference. As is beauty. What may be ugly to me may not be ugly to you and vice versa.  So long as *I* have an attraction to my man, I don’t much care how he’s viewed in others’ eyes. I’ve pretty much had these principals since my teen years and I don’t think they’ll change anytime soon. A lot of my friends will say I’ve had some GREAT looking men in my life, and OK, maybe so. But I’ve also dated men that weren’t AS desirable as they claim. But ugly? No. I don’t (and I won’t) date ugly men. Sorry. It may be shallow and all, but when I say I don’t like ugly men, I’m referring to types that resemble celebrities like Flava Flav, Craig Mack, Shabba Ranks and etc. Those are UGLY men to me. I could never see myself with a person like that. We’re talking physical attributes here. All those men listed could be amazingly nice and good people but I’m not an ugly woman and I think I deserve to have someone (at the very least) decent on my arm. That’s not to say I’ll date a man that’s not handsome. Let’s clear that up. I don’t mind dating an average or even below average guy. I don’t mind dating someone that may be considered unattractive. But ugly? UGLY!? No.

What I don’t think I should have to do in order to be happy is lower my standards or expectations of what *I* believe to be attractive. I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting a handsome man that ALSO has his shit together. I don’t think I should settle for an ugly man JUST because he’s doing better in life.  Why can’t I have both? Maybe I don’t have the right to complain or make the comment I did seeing as how I have such a desire for wanting both, but ….. damn.  What I want is what I want is what I want!

I mean, I’m a very affectionate and sexual person. I can’t kiss, hug or cuddle with a Flava Flav look a like. If I sat here and said I could, I’d be lying. Plain and simple, I’d be a liar. I just can’t do it. My friend says she believes you can grow to love someone, even if they’re ugly. And maybe that’s true. For some people. That doesn’t apply to me, though. If I can’t get past the thought of swapping spit with you, then I’m definitely not trying to “learn to love you”. Again, we’re talking UGLY here. TROLLS. Not unattractive men.

I’d sooner be single for 10 years and continue to date and find the right person for me rather than rush into a relationship with an ugly man just to say I have someone. I don’t NEED a man to make me happy, though it would be NICE to have someone in my life. Because I’m not desperate (yet – lol) and I don’t absolutely have to HAVE a boyfriend, I can wait. I’m OK with that. If I hit my 40’s and I’m still alone and getting a little batty because I have no one to share my life with MAYBE then I’ll find a Carrot Top looking partner.  But then and ONLY then. Ugh.

Oh My, Scarlet!

20 October 2008 at 10:56 am (Entertainment, Funny Things) (, , , , , )


I’m not late on seeing this but I AM late on posting this to my blog.

This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. The fact she posted it herself is even better. I don’t understand why she did it. After all, no one would know as she was there by herself. But nevertheless, I’m glad she did it.

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past week or so, here is the video for you to see:

But almost as funny as the initial video is a particular REACTION vid taken by “thruthealcove”. His reaction video is hilarious:

The two videos go hand in hand in my eyes. LOL.

Ugh. Then Ahh.

19 October 2008 at 1:05 pm (Life, Love & Relationships)


What a horribly rough couple of weeks.

I’ve battled severe sickness, a break-in scare, stress, migraines, loss and great emotional pain in these past two weeks. From when it first started to now – I couldn’t tell you how I made it through. I don’t know how I’m sitting here typing. I’ve been putting up a brave face but I decided to bring it down. It helps no one, notably me. I have to accept things for what they are and stop avoiding them. I guess I battled through it by approaching each day as it came and not looking too far ahead or even ahead to the next day. If I did, I got too frazzled and I’d freak out and I’d start to worry. I’ve also had the most amazing friends a girl could ask for. The love and support they show me have caused me to realize what’s REALLY important in life. And to know I have three exceptionally strong women in my life makes me realize I am so very blessed. L, D and C. I love you ladies with all my heart.

I made a HUGE change in my life last week. I’m probably not going to be able to deal with it properly or function normally for a LONG time but the ONE good thing that came out of that negative is the realization that I’ll be OK, in time, because I finally figured out what the problem is/was. And now that I know, I can work on it. Knowledge is power. Acknowledgement is key. I just don’t know how I’m going to be able to make it through life without my best friend. I’ll try my best but that’s why I say, it’s going to take me a long time to function normally.

In any event, I’m back. I need to be back. To write, to occupy my mind. To work towards that normalcy before I crumble up into myself. I’m not a shell and I never have been. I refuse to become one now. All I can do is look forward and work hard to get there.

So cliched but life is really what you make it. For the last few years of mine, I’ve made it hard on myself. Why? Not 100% sure yet. But It doesn’t have to be that way.  I’m going to relax. Breathe and exhale.

This morning I decided I have a new passion. It may be silly to some but for me I’m completely intrigued. I was watching makeup tutorials on youtube. Only because I’ve decided I need to try to learn to better apply eye makeup and for the life of me I can’t ever have my peepers look the way I want them to. So, I found quite a few vids that showed me a lot of tips and “how to” applications. I never even heard of eyeshadow primer before this morning *blank face* and that makes complete sense but I simply never knew. I just put on my shadow and went *shrug* Now, I’m hooked. Ugh, I’m such a girly girl.

I’m going to Sephora after work tomorrow to get my basics. All brand new brushes, applicators, shadows, liners, palettes and cleansers and I’m going to start learning the tools of the trade. Why eye make up? I don’t even know. But I’m obsessed to create the perfect smokey eye. lol. And once I’ve done it I will post pictures of it so that I can show off all my hard work =)

I have a simple yet fun reason to smile and something to look forward to. Baby steps.
