this weekend's essay: i was just wondering...

  • why are best buy's receipts so damn long? i bought the new tracy chapman cd the other week, i swear to you that shit was 20 inches!!!!
  • what's up with all these new, fancy air fresheners? seriously, i had no idea air fresheners were such a shameful thing to have. this whole, "let's make air fresheners all inconspicuous" movement really perplexes me. i don't care if you notice my fresh linen air wick. in fact, i'd rather you do that than smell my wall because you can't figure out that my electrical outlet and/or cd player distributes puffs of air at 9 minute increments. that's kinda freaky if you ask me.
  • how come no matter what day and time i go to the grocery store it looks like it was decimated by hurricane katrina? did a levee break in the dairy section nigga, damn!!!!
  • am i the only person who has some difficulty deciphering the letters on blogger word verification?
you know what to do.

enjoy. sat. and. sun.

LOL- i always screw those decipehering things too- which is why there isnt one on my blog...


I like long reciepts with coupons on the back because im cheap.

Have a good weekend

aiight arsenia hall sounds like a rip on "things that make you go hmm"...i'm considering furiously pumping my arm and barking but am afraid somebody would see. Hey how bout a post or two on Arsenio? I know you take requets.

on the subj of air fresheners you shouldn't buy them they got all kinds of chemicals that they emit and i'm including those incent (that's how we pronounce it) sticks they sell on the corner. They got pigs blood and baby lamb droppings or something like that in them (details were never my strong suit). Buy some organic pure essential oils to place in terracota oil burner or organic soy candles with no additives. You'll thank me for it. I think.

You know what would be really great? Whoopee cushion air fresheners.

Think about it. You put them under seat cushions, under futon covers, etc., and let the zaniness begin.

I genuinely think this is a fantastic idea.

@alii: if anyone else would have issues w/ word verification, it would be you.

@jalylah: growing up, i wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to watch arsenio hall, but i did get the reference. as for a post about him...any suggestions? if not, i guess i'll have to actually think of something.

and thanx for the very vague heads up on the air fresheners. though the "organic pure essential" oils sounds a bit headwrap, i may look into it.

@lee: i'd buy one.

I thought I was the only person who had a problem deciphering those damn words. Its fucking ridiculous. They make it difficult for computers to automatically read the letters, but they end up making it hard for fucking humans to read that shit too. Oh shit, now i have to try and decipher that shit (meqcdi), just to leave a message! Damn, damn, damn!

I hope you have a good weekend.

I can usually decipher the word verif. thing (since, you know, I've managed to comment a few times), but I agree it's a pain.

The other possibility, for spam prevention, is to remove the blog from Blogger's directory. This means you'd get fewer random visitors, but I think the "next blog" button is how the blogspot spammers find us. I might try this when and if my blog ever becomes serious again.

oh jah "headwrap"? only for a wrinkle in time as a freshwomyn at spelman. other than that, please avoid neo-soul references (especially if they include macy gray). this rule of course is flexible if you're referencing d'angelo, maxwell or old school lauryn hill. fyi.

Arsenio summer style, thata woulda be a good idea. Woof! Woof!

Air Freshener, damn nothing in life is simple anymore.

Grocery Stores as long as they don't stink, and the people in them don't stink I can handle the empty shelves.

Word verification is a device of the demon to demolish the desire to dispense dandy drivel or serve up delightful ditties to those who desire doctorates.

@bernard: thanx for going through such pains to comment on my isht.

your biggest fan.

@lee: good idea. i'm beginning to think you're a bit of a computer geek.

@phoenix: i wasn't calling her a headwrap, just the idea of me buying some essential oils...but, uh, thanx for the heads up. i promise not to cross the neo-soul line again.

do i lose points for having a bit of an undying love for macy gray?

@harold: as my unofficial paid intern, it is your job to come up with a basic blog topic on arsenio, and i'll take it from there. i will also take all the credit.

Macy's wack and she has the biggest mufucking head in the world. Worst insult ever launched in my direction: "you look like you listen to macy gray" said over a late night game of cards. I had to be restrained and I'm a lover not a fighter word to MJ.
