I just cannot stand it when someone feels they have a right to something just because the other person has more. I cannot understand the mentality of just because I have 2 apple and you have none, I owe you an apple just because I possess more that you. What the?

L is still expecting Harry’s father to pay for half of a wedding that she just cannot afford. She actually had to nerve to tell Harry that he’s father love was conditional and that he was loved less because he did not meet all the conditions to be worth his father’s total love but he did give that love to his brother. How dare you! She had the nerve to not understand why he got mad at her! What the?

Harry’s father money is his to spend as he wants to spend and no one has the right to dictate how it should be spent! Harry and Sherry are adults and if they cannot afford to pay for the dream wedding she wants then she will either wait until they can or they will make due with what they have.

The problem is she heard what Har…

I will be glad when this wedding takes place!

First, Melvina is getting married on Saturday. She is very happy and excited about it. There is definitly more to the story because he will not be coming to Pittsburgh right a way.

Second, 1 of 3 is trying to manipulate the wedding. I over heard a coversation where she actually tells her daughter to take the engagement ring and get a jewerler to remake the ring because the diamond is surrounded by too much gold! She is also trying to get her daughter to get married ina tradition wedding gown and not a sari. She is also getting mad because her daughter is not doing it.

They also got a second letter from the insurance company threatening to have their house sold for sheirff sale. I told her to just give it to her lawyer, you know the one have paid a retainer. She tells her husband that he said he was just going to ignore it. She just about screamed! So she is going to get a copy of the letter to the lawyer.

You proably will just have to listen and she will reveal all.

See you f…

the ramblings of an absentminded blogger

I am currently reading a nonfiction book entitled One Drop my father’s hidden life- A story of race and family secrets, author Bliss Broyard.

This book is about her father and his family secret that he is a black man. His mother and father were light skinned Creoles from the French Quarter in New Orleans (1920) when they moved to Bedford-Stuyvesant a neighborhood in Brooklyn NY they resorted to Passing in order to get work.

This is interesting in one aspect, comparison. I do not know why but when I biographical books I find myself comparing my life with what I read. I do this regardless of the subject.

When I read Kimora Simons autobiography I understood what it meant to be the tallest kid in the class. Hated the fact that I was taller than the tallest boy and on class picture day I was always standing in the back and head taller that all the boys. I hated to be tripped and hear someone yell TIMBER! Sometimes I could think back and laugh. I also remember going to a photo studio t…

Good bye Sweet pea!

I really felt sorry for Sweet Pea. 2 people were to be eliminate but she was the only one to me that is worst than being the first person eliminated. She smiled bravely through it all but that had to be horrible feeling. The only one of the 5 not worthy of Bryant Park!

I really want Chris to win because I am sick of Rami!

It will be and interesting contest between the two of them. Looking forward to it.

I love snow!

It isn’t winter in Pittsburgh if you do not have at least one day of winter storm warning that actually causes concern for the Pittsburghers.

It takes more than and light dusting of snow the shut down this city. But when it shuts down you should heed the winter snow advisory.

The snow came silently as it always does. If you do not watch the evening or morning news which is my custom then you just go through the motions like nothing is amiss. Then when you open your door to start you day and are greet with the cold breeze blowing snow into the threshold of the doorway. (This has happen to me several times before) However this time I knew the snow was coming. When TAG left for work last night there was a half of inch of snow on the driveway. After watching him successfully slid the car down the driveway and miss the utility pole I knew that I would be playing in snow in the morning.

I was up early and took my time. Why rush to play in the snow? Please note if you will I love play…


I have been sewing clothes for 30 years or so. My mother was not a great seamstress but she is the one who taught me to sew. I should say she is the one who sparked my interest in sewing. My interest grew in to a love, an almost obsessive love or sewing, designing clothes, fabrics and the search for something entirely new and fab.

I remember sewing with my mother; she did not complete high school so sometimes she had some difficulty in reading with comprehension. As I reflect on this she may have had this comprehension problem on purpose to help me learn to work it through.

We would take the time to read the instructions on the guide sheet and follow all the directions carefully but at some point in the construction of the garment she would suddenly not understand how the complete something. I felt good and being able to teach her something.

She had fantastic ideas about how to deal with the most complex things in life. Eventually I was completely on my own sewing my own clothing…


Okay, I hate days that start like this. I woke up on time. Which I did not think would happen because I went to bed so late. Before I knew it was 3:00 in the morning. I was at the bus stop on time. My co-riders were also at the bus stop on time. However the Bus driver decided that, that time was not the correct time and came 20 minutes later. This does not bother me so much. So instead of arriving at 8:30 like I usually do I got here at 8:59. Still on time so this does not bother me. I clocked in right away came into the hallway where the offices are located and 2 of 3 is not here! OMG!!!! I WAS TO BE HERE AT 8:00 AM!!!! I forgot. I hate this! I came into my office and someone had the changed the temp to 40 degrees! It was colder in here than it was outside! I hate this!

I was on the phones so fast! I was expecting it to ring as soon as I log on. But it did not! About 2 minutes later it rang! Okay. Then I checked my email 8 OVERFLOW calls. It’s Monday I expected 16 overflows calls. But…
