Changes coming round the corner

Like the new d├ęcor? 2015 is all about improvement. This is not a New Year's resolution; that's why I'm starting before 2015. No, this is a life change. It's time to stop being held back by past decisions. It's time to employ the knowledge I gained from those decisions. Forward momentum. Turning dreams into reality. I am ready for the next phase of my life. I may not be 100% sure what goals I plan to set for myself, but it's time to figure it out and achieve them. If I can dream it, I can be it. Laters.

Don't call it a comeback...

So.... it's been a while, hasn't it? I know this blog never really had followers and I mostly started it to practice writing, to feel it out, and I've decided to revive it for pretty much the same reasons. My voice has been stifled and it's time to dust the pipes off. I have no idea what the subject matter will be, probably whatever comes to mind, but I hope in time I will develop a style of my own and (hopefully) a few people will read it. To those who happen to stumble upon this: Welcome to the world of Miss P.

Screw The Olympics, Save Da Babies


Ok, I know it’s already been announced that Chicago lost the bid for the Olympics. And seeing as I claim Chicago all day every day, I should be upset, right? Wrong. I realized that most of my friends, except for a few, agree with me. Chicago did not need to host the Olympics. Not now, and not in the near future. And let me tell you why.

I’m sure by now you all have heard about the honor student, who was NOT in a gang, that was beaten to death in Chicago. His death is one of many senseless acts of violence that occur in Chicago every day. This, above all else, is the reason I did not want Chicago to win the bid. All that energy and money, 70 billion dollars so far, that went into winning the bid was misdirected. How about saving the babies? How about putting that money into after school programs and jobs? Hell, here’s an idea: open up a center for underprivileged kids so they can have somewhere safe to be while their parents try to make a living or earn an education? Target single teen mothers so they no longer have an excuse to not finish school. Goddammit, do something. If the President and his wife and Oprah can make all these damn speeches about why Chicago needs the Olympics, and Oprah can open a school in South Africa, why the hell can’t the do something to help in their own back yard? Michelle grew up on the South Side. She knows what it’s really like out there. I am tired of reading in the paper every day that someone else has lost their son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin to this bullshit! I refuse to sit by and watch the younger generation kill themselves off. Screw the Olympics; save the babies.

Po Lil Tink Tink

I know it's old, but I loves me some Kat Williams. Is it true he retired from stand up? I just don't understand why people throw away their bread and butter when they get a small dose of fame. Doesn't he have like 9 kids to feed? Anyway, enjoy the video heffas!

Need Some Advice

I know I haven't blogged in a while, and it's because I really don't have the time. I'm hoping that the few of you who have me listed in your blog rolls will notice this post and respond. You see, I have a dilemma.

My hubby hasn't spent time with his brother since he was a toddler. Said brother is now 18, and visiting for a couple of weeks. MY 20 year old VERY pregnant sister is staying with us for a while. We drove to Chicago and back in one weekend. We left Chicago 3 pm Sunday and made it home 9:15 am Monday, so I had to take the day off, cuz I did ALL the driving (hubby has no license). Anyway, since we've gotten back, I feel like my hubby hasn't made any effort to spend alone time with me. I'm used to getting off work and chilling with him until I go to bed. I've had to share him since last Thursday. When I get home, he and his brother are playing the game. I can either watch them play, go chill with my sis in her room or on the couch, or go in my room ALONE. We all eat dinner together and watch something, then I go to bed ALONE. Then the two of them are up together until one of them calls it quits.

Now, my question is, am I being selfish to want some time with my husband? I know he hasn't really been around his brother in like 16 years, but damnit, don't I deserve some attention, too? Do I really have to be neglected because 'I'm his wife and I'm gonna be there forever; his brother won't' (his words, not mine)? I mean, seriously, if you're gonna stay up with him, why can't you tear yourself away from him for just an hour and come and spend some quality time with your wife? Please, people, help me out on this one!

The King Is Dead

Ya'll know I have to come out of blogger hiatus today. Michael Jackson died yesterday. Farrah Fawcett died yesterday. Ed McMahon died Tuesday. And ya'll know my theory. When the good ones go back to back like that, it means we're going to hell in a hand basket.



Now, I don't agree with Michael's choice of sexual activity, but you can't deny that he is one of the few entertainers that EVERYONE world wide knows. His music crossed all boundaries. My prayers go out to all 3 families, and they will all be missed.
*True story- I was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, same as the Jacksons. I couldn't have been more than 10, and I was at the Kingdom Hall with my family, when guess who sneaks in the back? Michael Jackson. He sat quietly with his mother and they snuck out before it was over. Didn't really speak to anyone, although he did wave to those who spoke to him. I bet you anything my great Aunt is telling anyone who'll listen she had a long drawn out convo with him and they hugged and blah blah blah, lol. Anyway, RIP to you all.










Edward Leo Peter "Ed" McMahon, Jr.

The Young Keep Dying Young

I am a HUGE Angel fan. That was my show! A little while ago when they started showing the entire series from the beginning on cable, I would record it on the DVR so I could watch it after work, because of course it came on at 6 and 7 IN THE MORNING!!! lol Anyway, it hurts my heart to hear Andy Hallet, bka the lovable green demon Lorne, has died at the age of 33 from a 5 year battle with heart disease March 29. RIP Lorne, and I know when you do your number for the Big Guy, he'll see what a big heart you have and how many devoted fans will miss you.

Unbelievable

I don't believe this. All this was really unnecessary. Click here to read the original story and watch the video.

Now, I don't care that the guy involved is a professional football player. Let's pretend he's just regular Joe from down the street. Yes, he was in the wrong for running the red light, and the stop signs. But when he repeatedly told him his mother-in-law was dying, and then the hospital staff came out to confirm it, did he really have to drag it out like that? I think that cop purposely procrastinated, and as a result, the father and son-in-law missed the last moments of their loved one's life. I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I can't stand crooked cops. SMDH. My prayers go out to the family.

Happy Birthday To Me!


It's my birthday people! Yay! And I'm here stuck at work. However, I am laughing my ass off and it's all because of Jamie Foxx and his Foxxhole radio show. I went and found the link to the episode where they go hard on Kat Williams back in December when he challenged Steve Harvey. Anyway, have a laugh on me, and go out and get twisted tonight, cuz I damn sure am! Later, heffas!
