Woman Trades Kids For A Bird

28 February 2009 at 1:54 am (News, Why Is This News?) (, , , , , , , , , , )


I have no words for the stupidity here

(CNN) — Trading two children for a bird landed three people in jail in Louisiana, authorities say.

The biological mother, who was not involved in the alleged trade, is to be interviewed by authorities Friday. Investigators seek further details about a case that they say unfolded this way:

Paul and Brandy Romero advertised that they were selling their pet cockatoo for $1,500.

A woman named Donna Greenwell responded and said she wanted to buy the bird. Greenwell then told the Romeros that she was taking care of three children whose biological parents were going through a separation.

Greenwell proposed selling two of the couple’s children to the Romeros for $2,000, saying that her job as a truck driver made it hard to take care of the children, said Capt. Keith Dupre of the Evangeline Parrish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana.

The parties allegedly negotiated a trade involving the two kids, the bird and $175.

An anonymous tipster contacted authorities after the children began living with the Romeros.

As a result, Greenwell and the Romeros were arrested February 21 and charged with aggravated kidnapping, Dupre said.

The children were well taken care of when they were with the Romeros, who badly wanted children, according to Dupre.

Greenwell said she needed the cash for a lawyer to handle adoption paperwork, authorities said.

She had placed the third child with another Louisiana couple, Dupre said, but he didn’t know whether bartering was involved.

The two children were ages 4 and 5, according to CNN affiliate WGNO.

Police did not identify the biological parents, and no other information was available. The children have been placed in foster care.

Excel Sweet Mint Gum

28 February 2009 at 1:40 am (Product Reviews, Random) (, , , , , , )


Ok, guys. I SWEAR I do more product reviews than on just gum. (See: Stride)

But I wanted to just say that I discovered this new Excel gum flavour. It’s called “Sweet Mint”. When I bought it I was just looking for regular old spearmint. Nothing. So I grabbed this one up and I wasn’t really expecting anything exciting but this flavour is SO good. It’s not one I can describe other than … sweet …. with a minty taste. It’s more mint that sweet. I’d WANT to say its like a minty juicy fruit but not really, only because they have spearmint juicy fruit and this gum tastes MUCH better than that. Ugh. Just trust me on this one. It’s a damn good flavour. Try it.

My Sister’s Keeper

27 February 2009 at 11:40 pm (Book Reviews) (, , , , , , , )


sisterskeeper

5 out of 5 stars

Never have I read such a book that pulled at my heartstrings. NEVER has a book made me cry. And not just a tear or two but real alligator tears. I can’t even being to describe the emotions this book brought out of me. A brief synopsis of the plot:

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate – a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister – and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable… a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister’s Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life… even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less?

The story of Anna Fitzgerald is unlike any I’ve ever read. Jodi Picoult is a genius. She writes from all characters perspectives and just when you feel you’ve chosen a side, she outrightly challenges that decision with a completely different viewpoint. How she was able to do it, I’ll never know but this book challenges our spirit and psyche.  You soon realize with this story that no side can be chosen. There is no right or wrong here. There is only faith. You can’t imagine being in the position of losing a child and then, knowing your other child can save them, but won’t. I don’t want to give away too much of the book so I’ll stop there but I highly recommend this for anyone that needs to reconnect with the meaning of the human spirit. The ending of the story is not one the reader could ever think of and its completely heartwrenching. The twist at the end is sad but almost necessary. The topic of ‘donor children’ is current and controversial but Picoult manages to tackle the subject with an unyielding sensitivity.  It’s a book I just couldn’t put down and I flew through it. I’ll be sure to read more of Picoults work after this, without a doubt.

There is also a movie being made starring Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin and Abigail Breslin, due out in 2009.

With this being such an emotional story, I hope the movie is done well or I will be gravely disappointed.

Yes. My alternate for my dynasty is back with another album, folks. Round 2 will be in stores March, 10.

The lead single, It’s Yours, doesn’t disappoint. He’s looking sexy as ever and his leading lady, whomever she is, is very pretty. I’m not mad at her …. other than the few kisses they exchange in the video. Hold that, J. Relax. Save those kisses for me, please and thank you.

Mr Chi City

27 February 2009 at 11:01 pm (Entertainment, Funny Things, Random) (, , )


I subscribe to a few people on YouTube but NONE of them are as funny and entertaining as Mr. Chi City. I thought B. Scott was the dopest to ever do it on the Tube but, no. I got put onto Chi a lil late in the game BUT I’m so glad I did. He has me in stitches and EVERY last one of his videos are straight comedy. I love his voice.  And I love his laugh. I LOVE HIS LAUGH.. That’s all I have. I wish he’d show his face, tho. But its OK. For now, I’ll just admire “the voice”.

Check out this vid.

 

Plus, he told me he thinks I’m pretty 😉 So all in all he’s got a fan for life! lol

Partying and Labels

24 February 2009 at 11:47 am (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )


I’ve been wanting to write a blog about this because it’s been on my mind for a minute now.

We all know how small Toronto REALLY is. Sure, population wise it’s a big city. But as I said, we all know how it REALLY is. This conversation came up the other night as I was talking to my friend, Bizz. It basically started out with me saying: “I’m glad I’m not 20-24 right now and partying in Toronto.”  He asked me what I meant and thus began the convo.

This is a personal experience type of blog. Some people younger than me may think me old and not really understand what I mean but I can almost guarantee those people my age will relate 100% to what I’m about to say. If anything, it’ll be food for thought.

I’ll be 28 in April. I don’t party or go out often anymore. It’s as much a choice as it is that I can’t/don’t for reasons of my own. In any case, I USED to party. And hard. And often. The thing is, I used to party from Wed to Sun … every damn night and be able to get up and go to work the next day, no problem. lol. I can’t do that anymore. But that’s not my issue. My issue is that when I used to go party (from 19-21) I used to be able to go out, have a good time, had no cares in the world. It was just me, my rum and cokes, my long islands and the music. I could go to the same spots or new ones and actually MEET people and not always see the same faces. There was probably only about half a dozen or less MAJOR promoters in the city so you wouldn’t see a bunch of parties going down every weekend and not know which one was the hottest to go to. There wasn’t that kind of competition. You just went out for a good time. Point, blank, period.

NOW, in like the last 5 years or so I’ve seen a MAJOR change in how Toronto parties. First of all, with the growing # of social networking sites, Facebook included, you see how easy it is for anyone to become a promoter. If you are like me, you know a lot of these people and are constantly bombarded with event invites. Ugh. Then, on a different but grander scale, you see how everyone has to have a label. You CAN’T just go out and party anymore. You have to go out and party and BE someone. You have to be that model, or that rapper, or that promoter or photographer. You have to be that stylist … you HAVE to be that VIP. Man, you go out now and you see the same damn people ALL the time. Bizz pointed out that it’s probably because I’m going to the same places or the same kinds of parties thrown by the same promoting teams. Valid point but really, that’s not the case. Because I don’t go out OFTEN  (like maybe once or twice every couple months) how is it when I DO go,  I’m still seeing the same people!?

I’m not trying to hate on ANYONE’S hustle. I think in some ways it’s good to see Toronto’s youth making a name for themselves. And the ones actually doing it I’m not mad at you but there are kids coming up that aren’t about shit and THINK they are the shit because they are known by association. Whatever happened to just being able to get your drink and dance on in the club? Why does everyone have to party with a label? And whats worse, why do people look down on those that DON’T have a label and just want to party?

I feel bad for the younger kids. They won’t understand what it means to just get dressed up, hit the club and have a good time. They now have to do all that but with a purpose. I mean, it’s almost like a social club. If you have a label, you’re in. If you don’t, you gotta party with the rest of the commoners. LMFAO.

When I was 21 and in the clubs, MOST of these scenesters were still in high school WISHING they could party with the older kids. Now, it’s like they’re taking over but doing it in a completely different way. It’s almost hilarious because I wonder if it’s a trend or phase or what? Then I wonder where these early 20-somethings will be once they reach my age. Will they still be dressing in the latest fashions and calling themselves whatever name or crew they belong to?Who knows. Only time will tell, I suppose.

You only live once, so I hope everyone enjoys their time. However, there’s a difference between enjoying yourself and living so hard to be famous that you’re literally selling yourself out to be the next hottest thing in The Dot. The fervour in which some of these people want to be known is funny, pathetic and quite attention whorish.

Just be yourself. If you have to create a damn job for yourself in order to go out into Toronto’s night life to party then you’ve got problems. Seriously.
