Simply Skincare

I've been using this fabulous lotion recently...Mary Kay's Peppermint Cream. It smells incredibly delicious and makes me wanna lick myself(pause). It also has a very wintery feeling which is great because I'm already getting ready for the winter holidays.

OneRepublic's All the Right Moves

You can't tell me this song isn't fiyah. I love it. The end.

I can't wait for OneRepublic's sophomore album, Waking Up, coming out November 17th. Make sure you pick it know you want to.

Times are Hard

Today, I saw a white man selling lunch sandwiches out the trunk of his car....He had a sign and everything. The sandwiches looked like they'd been made in his kitchen.
Times are hard.

My Dealbreaker List

There are some things that guys do that totally break the deal for me. You may be fine, they may be educated, but if they do any of the following things--it's over. These deal breakers, also known as non-negotiable boundaries are things I simply cannot accept or tolerate when starting or building a relationship.

1. Smoke
I hate smoking. I hate the way it smells, the way it chokes you up, and certainly the way smoking kills you. It grosses me out. And mostly importantly it tells me you have little regard for your health.

This one is a little superficial, but still very important to me. Long nails on guys is so are short stubby ones. And don't get me started on dirty nails.... So nasty. Men need to be able to take care of the little things just as well as the big things.

3. Bad Grammar
I speak English and I expect him to as well. I don't mean he needs to speak like a Harvard English professor, but I do nee to understand the words that are coming out of his mouth. I once had a guy start trying to talk to me while I was walking to my car. I'm sure he thought he was speaking English, but after asking him 3 times to repeat himself, I just decided that we need not have a conversation. I'm sorry but, "You gotta blue up pin thru shoe" is no come-on I've ever heard before.

5. Pretty boys
There is nothing sexier than a good looking dude that has no idea he's a good looking dude. And yes it's even OK to acknowledge that you like the way you look, but when you put SO much effort into your physical looks, that you completely neglect those around you--it's a def deal breaker. Trying so hard to always look so polished and put together is a sign of insecurities and who really wants to deal with an insecure man? I have neither the time nor the patience to stroke your ego constantly. It is important to take care of yourself, but looks fade and is it necessary to put THAT much energy into something that is temporary?

4. Atheism
If he doesn't believe in something greater than himself, that's a serious deal breaker. We can deal with the specifics and seriousness of our religious associations at a later point, but he has to believe in God.

That's all for now...there are a ton more deal-breakers when it comes to actually being in a relationship, but when just getting to know someone, these are the things that kill it for me.

What kills it for you?

Chris Breezy Back?

I just heard Chris's new song I Can Transform Ya featuring Lil' Wayne and Swiss Beatz. I don't know how I feel about it. It wasn't the hot jam I was expecting for him to come back with, but it's ok....starting to grow on me.

Chris Brown - i can transform ya | Online recorder

When, if ever, do you think it's appropriate for Breezy(who only a few months ago pleaded guilty to a felony)to make a career comeback? Has he "done his time"?

The Princess & the Frog

So the newest Disney movie includes a black princess. I saw a preview a while back and now I thought I would put it on here.

I'm not sure how I should take her whole turning into a frog bit. Can't they just keep us away from animals for a minute? I dunno, am I being too critical?

Oh Poor Jesse..

I love Anderson's commentary..."If you're gonna forget the words, do it at a soccer match. Not NASCAR"

Lol such an American thing to say...

Somewhere in the Night

So I've been feeling really down lately. The state of my life is just bumming me out, that's all. It all started when I realized there wasn't anyone I wanted to see Good Hair with. Basically, I'm just a bit upset by my nonexistent social life right now. I mean I miss the intellectual convos I used to have, the late night procrastination sessions, the inside jokes....basically I guess I just miss my friends.

Not to say there are not people here I could hang out with, its just sometimes I don't want to have to take that step back and be polite/socially acceptable Minah. Sometimes I just wanna be me without all the pretense. But like a friend of mine said "you just have to be you. Those who don't like it will stay away. And those who like you will be drawn in. And if you don't want to, you don't have to talk to anyone at all". :)

On a slightly different note, in my state of depression, I decided to read poems on depression to see if any would speak to me. After a couple of poems about the rush of cutting one's wrists and not seeing a point in living anymore, I realized I was not as depressed as I thought I was. Those poems actually made me feel a little better.

Here's the least intense poem I found:

Somewhere in the Night
Somewhere in the night a child cries,
A woman weeps and someone dies.
Somewhere in the night, humanity hides.

Somewhere in the night , a soul screams,
As people fade and die, lost in dreams.
Somewhere in the night, reality lives.

Somewhere in the night loneliness dwells,
As people die, no sounding bells.
Somewhere in the night, she dies alone.

Somewhere in the night ...

Where is the light?

Who Knew Pole Dancing Was a Sport?

I saw this video on someone else's profile on Facebook and I had to bring it here because it was so intense. I've never even heard of such a thing as a pole dancing competition...but hey, it exists and these women were pros.

I mean that's some serious upper and lower body strength right there. You'd be lying if you said you weren't completely fascinated by how they pulled some of those moves off! lol

Glee Moment of the Week

Mercedes(the black girl) can belt it! I really don't get why they try and say Rachel has the strongest voice. Ugh white people and their mainstream mentality.

Am I the only one that doesn't feel it's right for Mr. Schuester and the guidance counselor to get together? I mean... she's crazy and he's already got one off-the-rockers wife. (I mean, what kinda insanity makes a woman think she can fake a pregnancy and get her husband to believe some other baby is his?)

My Adventures With Online Dating

So my friend convinced me to join an online dating service(it's free which was how she got me). I put up my profile a few days ago and the matches have started coming in...still smh.

I don't really understand how this matching technology has decided the only people I'm compatible with are balding white dudes. No really. All of them. Oh and one balding Indian. And I'm sorry, but balding at 22 is just not gonna cut it for me.

The sad part is when I read their information, I actually relate to a lot of them and we do share similar beliefs or what not. However the fundamental factor of physical attractiveness is simply not there. And no, I'm not asking for a black Adonis necessarily--your average good looking fellow would do. Sigh. Unfortunately, my matcher hasn't figured this out yet, but I think after I reject enough guys, it may get the hint.

Seriously though, this is the south. what if I decided to meet up with one of these Rogaine-challenged guys and they pull up in a red pick-up truck with the Confederate flag draped across his back seat. Hmmm? How would I explain away that ridiculous awful situation?
Lol anyways, the whole thing is a learning experience and I doubt I will really meet up with anyone....especially if they keep matching me with these fuglies(no offense)

(This is actually not one of the guys from the site...but close enough. I thought it would be really mean to copy and paste a photo of the real guys. Yup. I'm just that caring.)

It's Been Soo Long!!

I'm sorry! I am trying to do better...
With my part time work and internship I'm actually a little busy, but NO excuse!
There's a ton to blog on it and I gotta stay up on it.

In the words of Hancock:
"You expect better from me. I will be better."

(or something like that...)
