Friday Randoms

Hi my pipus, how you dey? Once again as time is flying, it is Friday again. I just got done with an exam and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder. Can't wait for the semester to end. Alrighty, let's hop on the random train, shall we?


I started watching the T.V show L word and one scene kinda put a thought in my head. I am in no way making light of rape but I wondered if a gay woman can rape another gay woman. Also, you know how when a male rapes a female they have these rape kits to prove she was raped, how will they do it in this case, if it is infact possible?

In response to my last post, Ms. Dufa posted a response that said : True. Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. Hold onto yours and hear other people out, if it suits you, adjust yours and if it doesnt suit you, keep it to yourself and move on. I totally agree with it but I also wanted to add that sometimes just because one decides to keep it to themselves and move on doesn't mean they are passive aggressive. I feel like people feel that if you don't respond vehemently (or rudely in the name of keeping it real) then you are weak/passive aggressive.


I read an article about toxic parents/divorcing parents and this comment made me chuckle - "Nothing spells closure more than a tightly closed coffin lid". That person must have really hated their parent.

I read another article in Essence where a black girl decided to date like a white girl. Dating like a white girl meaning not being very discriminatory and just dating for fun. The writer felt we as black women have it ingrained in our head to date seriously so when we run into dudes with low level jobs eg waiter, driver etc, we x them immediately because what if we fall in love and things are serious, then what?

(My friend asked me this a while ago) But we women are always talking about a good man all the time, but after all said and done and we have all the good on paper characteristics ie college education, good career, cooking skills etc etc. What do we really have to offer emotionally, spiritually, physically etc and are we working on it as we wait?

November is Military Appreciation Month. Shoutout to all the men and women serving and putting their lives on the line for us to live our daily lives normally. Say a prayer for them y'all when you get a chance.

Expectations are a downfall waiting to happen. The sooner we learn not to put our trust in our fellow man the better we'll be.

I honestly do not condone the death penalty and that's all I'm saying about it.

I watched the Khloe Kardashian wedding thing. Well..more power to them, but where was Omarion I thought they were hella tight?

My new car is 8 years older than my previous car. Some may call it regression, but I actually like it. Hope it lasts!

Yuck, I hope I don't become one of those annoying, overly positive people..Nah, I doubt it.

I'm so glad to have my BFF around, even though she leaves in 2 days :( She has been around for two weeks and I have never laughed so hard. I like her easygoing spirit and I can always be myself around her.

And finally, for my blogsville family, remember that : Everything is ok in the end and if it's not ok, then it's not the end.

Hang in there people, have a lovely weekend!

P.S Lucid Lillith, per your last comment on last week's randoms. Pick any random and I'll try to see if i can expand it for ya!

Naa you won't be one of those cliche swinging people. I do like the positive you sha! I guess lesbians can rape each other with tools or objects and the evidence would be in the bruising. Lol.

The post about the black people and dating is interesting...ditto about your comment on death penalty.

Great summation on your randoms. I agree that races date differently but of course it's not for everybody.
