Blogger Book Club

So, I was browsing some blogs and ran across a blogger book club! I am too excited. Curling up with a great book is one of my favorite pasttimes.

I'm not as hardcore as I used to be in high school (cuz u actually have to study in college, lol). But trust me when I tell you I have no problem jumping back into one of my favorite hobbies.

The book being read is "The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd. The link for the blog is

Happy reading book lovers! :)

My future hubby *sigh* :)

So I'm ready this book called Ain't No Mountain by Sharon Ewell Foster. In the book there is a character named Moor and he's a really spiritual guy. In the beginning of one of the chapters he's saying in prayer in anticipation of his future bride. It's so beautiful, I just kept saying "Awwww" throughout the whole prayer. I hope my future hubby prays such a prayer. Now, for your reading pleasure :)

"Give me grace to run this race alone, until you lead me to the doorway of the perfect wife, my heavenly Father. You and I have a good time talking and studying together, and I have a lot of work to do--so I'm not rushing you. You take your time. I know that you know the perfect woman for me. Today, though I do no know her, I pray that you will make her burdens light. I pray that you will give her peace and reassure her that you are sending her the mate that is perfect fit for her. Wipe the worry off of her forehead and relax her shoulders for me. Command her to enjoy the day. Rub her feet for me, until I am able to do so myself. Tell her that I am preparing myself to love her sacrificially and wholly as you have taught me to love. Tell her not to worry--I will be looking for her when the time is right. And in the right time and at the right place, I will find her. In Jesus' name. Amen."

*SIGH* My heart melts :). I am such a hopeless romantic and I hope to meet someone just as hopelessly romantic as I (but manly, lol).

Girl crush....

The other day I was thinking about a conversation I had with one of my mother's good friends when I was like 15. I don't remember where we were, but he made the comment along the lines of "Man, that guy has some big balls, or look at how big his balls are!" LMBO! I was mortified and I said, "Jean*, that's gay!" He looked at me and said, "That's not gay, it's Americans that think everything is gay. I can make a comment about another man without being attracted to him." It got me to thinking. We as Americans are some of the biggest homophobes there are.

Looking back on this conversation, I guess that's why I never had a problem saying a girl was pretty or had a nice shape. It doesn't take anything away from me, nor am I attracted to girls. I can just appreciate the female form, especially black women.

So in keeping with my appreciation of the female body, I decided to create my ideal body taking bits and pieces from different bodies that I like.

These would be my ideal legs....this is when Beyonce was really thick, lol

Do you see this ridiculously flat stomach? It just doesn't make any sense.....

Ciara is running a close second in the case of fab abs.

And Janet makes the list again with the fab boobs, although they might be fake (IDK or care)

Look at that a$$, that a$$, that a$$...sounds like something one of my homeboys would say, LOL :). I can definitely appreciate a nice pair of buns.

Why is she 42 and looks like this?! It's just not fair! Stacy Dash comes in 1.5 place (not 2nd) when it comes to the buns. I hope to look like her when I'm 42

McCain thinks the American people have "Boo Boo the Fool" stamped on our Forehead

I was sent an email with a link of several interviews and press statements that John McCain has done. This man has literally contradicted himself in every television appearance that he's made. I knew this man was a liar when he started talking about "change" at the RNC. Change? Really McCain? When this man has clearly stated that he has no plans of withdrawing our troops out of Iraq and no plans of weening our country off of this oil. He's made it clear that he sees no problems with Bush's policies and all of sudden he's trying to distance himself from Bush at the RNC? I call BULLSH!T!! I'm convinced this man is the anti-christ, LOL.

Well here's the video, judge for yourselves:
