Well, we start this week with out the Mac man. However Err'ytime I say mothaphucka I will think of you Bernie Mac!! Bernie got to do a lot in his short 50 years, even if his fame and accolades came later than most comics. He was a great blue comic and then in true comic fashion turned around and gave us TV the whole family could watch. Does anyone else notice that is the comedy formula. Start out shockingly dirty end up being Dr. Doolittle. Even Pryor did it. Martin is doing it now. I know kid friendly comedy equals BIG Money. Mac's show had two Emmy nominations and while others will say no wins means it was slighted. I would say to even be nominated being on a smaller network with a cast of mostly blacks is a huge accomplishment. At least I do have my Kings of Comedy DVD!
And Issac Hayes died on Sunday ! Wow what a weekend. But t'is the cycle of life. Keep on living and one day, well you're gonna die.
I spent this weekend doing nothing. It was utterly fabulous. Oh! I did go shopping, but it was from the comfort of my couch. I love the internets!
One more weekend left before I jet set to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I'm excited. It should be BIG fun!
I miss home. I miss my home, meaning my house in Houston (kitchen pictured), but it will pass. Plus being out and about and seeing more of the world will and does make me a better person. However I would love to spend 7 days in a row in my own place. I know I will soon!
Urban dwelling does have perks but it also has cons. I think there could be a mouse in my brownstone. Argggh. I don't even know how to begin. Seeing the rats on the street was enough but having to now mouse proof my place which I think I will have to do for the winter from what I have been told. Man maybe I can borrow a cat or something. BOO! Plus if it wants to stay here for the winter he better have something on this rent.
I can't wait for fall in New England. I am very excited about it. I need to go to Maine and get some lobster. I can't believe I haven't. Its only like an hour away. I also haven't gone to NYC either and its only four hours away. I still have time. I like this actually having seasons thing. I am now starting to look for boots and other fall stuff.
I can not believe there are only 4 months left in this year and I have owned (noticed I said owned cause I ain't been in my house since I moved to Boston in March) my home for a year. I know I closed in August, but for the life of me I can not remember my closing date. I also can't believe this little cutie is almost one year old (bus chicklet, Rosa). I plan to meet her in Seattle to celebrate her birth and our first meeting in November. One day I'm gonna tell her about all the trife her mom and Aunt Moni got into as young women stretching our wings. Them traveling pants chicks ain't got nothing on us. Ya Ya!!
I know this is one of the shortest blogs I've written in a minute, but you guys need a break sometimes. Right? Well since the Olympics have started here is a little American Olympic Nike hype for you. This is one of my FAVORITE renditions of the National Anthem ever. And unlike some of you reading, I remember when he sang this. I was a youngster but I remember it. '83 was the year I clocked my first decade!
