Name Five Albums that Shaped you & Why?

I stole this idea from Vegas who stole it from China on twitter,its a simple question but I took it and ran with it.Anyway these are my answers:

Put God first in all that you do and he shall see you through. This is by far one of the Best Gospel Albums I've ever heard in my life! Lyrics are everything.These melodies really are from heaven, no lie. Makes you reflect, makes you want to correct some things,makes you grateful. Say what you want to me about Kirk Franklin, but when he wants to get a message across, it gets done.

MAN! All I know is, I was 13 years old and felt like I had been on the biggest, most powerful,soulful, most enlightening emotional roller coaster ever! And I STILL feel that way when I hear this Album.It's as timeless as the artist her self.

After mispronouncing his name several times while reading all his credits on everything Rocafella, I anticipated and fell into this album easily. Not only because every beat was contagious and excitingly atypical, but because this guy was talking about dropping out of college, overcoming adversity (the car crash we never stop hearing about)following his heart, taking chances. He was stepping outside the box and making a home there for himself-I loved it. As corny as it sounds his story always reminds me of just how far being comfortable with yourself can take you.

The talent. The singing. The rapping. The heartache. The love. The regret. The anger. The pain.The experience.Before I even fell in love I knew what it could do to me. Can't say she didn't warn us, right? this album is THE TRUTH.

When the Streets Is Watching movie came out I was listening to this(on the Low cus I wasn't aloud,and way too young for both the movie& album LOL)and I really understood where this guy Jay-Z was coming from, not because we had similar experiences, but because he painted a picture so vivid I felt like a piece of the art work myself.All I did that Summer was make rap tapes for my Walkman from my older brother's CD collection. In doing so, I got open- went back listened to the first one,AGAIN, and became a serious believer what I like to call "The Hov'ery"- when he said "they didn't really appreciate it til the Second one came out" he was talking about me [Hov voice] HA-HA:-/


The Saint and the Sinner

Sickest Briefcase Ever

Leave it up to Karl Lagerfeld. This innovative creation comes complete with solid, and I mean solid locations- to place your: compact, lipstick, Ipod,perfume,glasses and the actual leather bag its self (where I assume you'll be placing your lady products since the case is clear), ...so sick!!

Suck on this...

Can't afford a Louis bag?? its ok, just get a lolipop to satisfy your craving...well, maybe not :-/..lol- So, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and CoCo Chanel thought it would be a fabulous idea to give these treats out to guest attending their shows during fashion week. Cute, right?

I love Springing forward but I Despise losing an hour of sleep! It takes me a week to get used to it, you would think its no biggie since I'm ALWAYS losing sleep, but no! I'm still yawning at work right now, then again it could be my mama's food from yesterday that's making me feel like this- ITIS anyone?? LOL


Autopsy results show the bullet that struck and killed the Rev. Fred Winters as he delivered a sermon at First Baptist Church in Maryville went straight through the pastor's heart.

Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn said Monday that a Sunday autopsy shows Winters likely died within seconds of being shot at the Illinois church outside St. Louis.
Nonn is not commenting on the distance between the gunman and Winters at the time of the shooting or other investigative details.

The 45-year-old Winters was shot and killed Sunday in the front of about 150 worshippers in the church sanctuary. Illinois State Police say only that the suspected gunman is a 27-year-old from nearby Troy. His name is being withheld pending possible charges.

I can't even front, when I'm in church at times I feel like "when is this going to end,ugh.. if I hear how much of a sinner I am one more time...". Its wrong. I know it's wrong. I don't deny that. I love me some Jesus, and I know better than to have that attitude. But every once in a while, I do walk in with a sound mind and open heart and I am humbled and grateful for the getting through the week in good health and therefor motivated to fellowship with those around me. When I read this article, I thought of that feeling. What if this was you, at peace, listening intently, regaining hope or whatever you're lacking... how crazy would it be if someone had words with your pastor(which I've seen happen with mine)walked up to the pulpit and just shot him dead, straight through the heart? what do you do? What do you say? How do you attend your Church again? I mean in some reports it states that the people in the congregation thought they were in the middle of a skit- since after the pages from the Bible flew out like confetti once he tried defending him self with it until one of the the bullets shot hit him. It wasn't until the members realized he was hurt they attacked the jerk and held him down until the police got there... Could you attend your Church again if you witnessed this?

Lesson learned - Just Do You

Here's my quote of the Week: "Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else's'." ~ Billy Wilder

You ever know someone who always gave you advice based on what they would do for themselves in their situation, according to their life, never really taking the time to really think about analyzing your situation and seeing what's best for you? I do. To me, most people can be like this because I think most humans are self serving and they naturally don't think outside the box cus their too busy thinking about themselves. Like alot of folks, I've found my self in some predicaments when I'm unsure of what to do or what next step to take and seek advice from friends & family. And it's not because I'm incapable of making a good decision all by myself like a big girl but sometimes things get so crazy & confusing it's almost like I just need an eye witness to make sure I'm not dreaming this stuff happening to me(trust; my life is a movie...) In any case, what I've found in life is that everyone and their mama has a damn opinion! Even when I'm just venting people like to make suggestions that aren't necessarily for me but for them. To be really honest,I know it's very easy for me at times to trust those who love me because I believe in my heart they don't purposely want to cause me any harm but I know because they aren't me they can't fully be looking out for me. I gotta do that. We all gotta do that.In the last year, I've literally had to re-teach myself how to trust myself again. And although that doesn't mean shutting every one's opinion down every single time they offer, it certainly means always referring back to what I initially felt in my gut verses what I've been hearing and is roaming in my head. I've learned first hand that getting caught in the hype is the worse way to go out. So my Point is, when i read this quote I think: Yes, people mean well with their advice mostly (cus there's always at least one hater), but at the end of the day, never forget who knows better and who the advice really affects, do you- I am.

No Nuggets? Call 911...

Ever show up to McDonald's and order something only to feel the weight of disappointment come over you once you realized they didn't have what you wanted? When that has happened to me I usually drop a sad face order something else or keep it moving... like most people, right? Well, not if you're Latreasa Goodman from Florida... I stumbled upon this article today and I couldn't believe what I was reading. Here it is:

FORT PIERCE, Fla. - Authorities say a Florida woman called 911 three times after McDonald's employees told her they were out of Chicken McNuggets.

A police report says 27-year-old Fort Pierce resident Latreasa L. Goodman told authorities she paid for a 10-piece last week but was later informed the restaurant had run out.

She says she was refused a refund and told all sales were final. A cashier told police she offered Goodman a larger portion of different food for the same price, but Goodman became irate.
"This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn’t have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don’t want one," Goodman told police, according to The Stuart News. "This is an emergency."

Police say Goodman was cited on a misuse of 911 charge. A current phone listing for Goodman couldn't be found.

A McDonald's spokesman says Goodman should have been given a refund, and she's being sent a gift card for a free meal.

Seriously??!!!! Is it me,or is this heifer Buggin???


Happy Birthday Peg-Star!
