For women who are "difficult" to love

Leggy has been posting little quotes and excerpts from the poetry of Warsan Shire and I have been liking what I read. I looked her up and she is a 23 year old Kenyan born Somali Brit woman. I think her name is cool and she seems like an interesting person. I say this because, for one pictures of her show her in hijabs or her hair covered, then there are the other set of pics that have a huge hoop between her nostrils.

Interesting quote and excerpt from an interview:

“I am a lover without a lover. I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself.”

HL: Who taught you most about love? WS: I think it was probably my parents.They taught me more about the absence of love. They taught me about love through the loss of it… HL: Can you explain a little more? WS: For a long while, I was obsessed about the breakdown of my parents’ marriage. Because I admired both of them so much separately, I couldn’t understand or make sense of how it couldn’t work. And as I grew up, the more I learned and the m…

The Ev/Ocho fiasco

I know this is stale news now but I had mentioned that I was going to do a post on this, so better late than never.

So, unless you were under a rock you must have heard of the domestic violence situation between reality star, Evelyn Lozada and football player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson. The alleged story is that they were in a car, (a smart car I might add, have you seen how tiny dem things are?) and Evelyn spies a receipt for condoms, we can assume they don't use that because Mrs Johnson confronts him, they get into an argument, he allegedly head butts her, she runs to her neighbour's house, who in turn calls the cops and has Chad arrested.

Now, if you don't watch Basketball Wives, I have to give you a rundown on Evelyn. Evelyn, especially last season is a bully. She was in a 10yr relationship with a retired NBA player, Antoine Walker, was supposed to get married but called it off last minute. She has a daughter. She's one of those loud, cussing, "I keep …

Friday Randoms

Hello beautiful people! No you haven't stumbled on the wrong page, I actually do have randoms for today, whaddyaknow? Ok, I'll stop kidding around. No really, how have you guys been? Hope you guys are having a great summer. Sad to think that fall is already peeking its head through. Thankfully, down here in Texas, we get extra grace period before fall cometh. Life has been good, can't complain too much. Thankful for the good and the bad. Could always strive to be better. Before I start randoming, lemme just say you guys should never apologize for long comments (yujubee, I am looking at you :p). I welcome all comments no discrimination on length. Also, Sabira if you are reading this, where did you gooooo? Okay random time.

I watch a lot of reality shows/competitions. I hate, hate, hate when they have to work in teams or groups. It's just frustrating to watch.

Sidebar: I am watching Project Runway and watching this bald, fat man talking about working with plus sizes is ve…

I'm still here

Hi guys. I've been a terrible blogger. I have been busy and I have also had blogger's block. I don't have anything to talk about and you guys haven't served me up any ideas :p. This is not a random but I guess a bunch of tidbits off the top of my head.

I just saw the Dark Knight few hours ago and I am still undecided on how I felt about it. It definitely wasn't bad and I see how he was trying to wrap everything up in a bow, but some scenes were longer than it could have been and there was a handful of corny moments but I will sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.

How about Gabby Douglas? It's such a cool thing to be 16 and have a gold medal.Not a lot of people can say they competed in the Olympics first of all, so to win a gold medal is actually pretty cool. I should say though that I have mucho respect for all athletes. It takes an immense amount of discipline to achieve the level that they do and to that, I doff my hat.

What are your thoughts on the …
