Hey everybody.  I’ve been working hard so I can get outta here early to hit the highway.

Just a few thoughts, Read the rest of this entry »


What’s up with white folk and vampires?

25 11 2008

Happy Tuesday everybody!  If you’ve been under a rock, you probably haven’t noticed how much they have been promoting this new film “Twilight” as a “Pop culture phenomenom!” and have raved about it in the promotions.  If you don’t know, it’s a movie about some teenage vampire bullsh!t.  By now, you probably figure that the sources going on and on about how great any movie is is probably getting broken off by the studio in some form or fashion.  Whenever a movie is a big budget movie, they use the influence they have with various publications for them to spout off all this hollow acclaim, like “The BEST film in years!!”  or “A Phenomenom!”  blah blah blah.

Monday Thoughts

24 11 2008

Happy Monday everyone! I know most of you feel pretty good because this week is going to be a short work week with Thanksgiving and all.  I’ll be going home for it, but my brain may not check into work at all these next three days. What a shame.

Hey, if you didn’t read Friday’s post about working out, I’d like you all to read it please.  I know a lot of people like to set fitness goals come the beginning of the year because they feel guilty for being sessile and gorging themselves on turkey, dressing, gravy, greens, mac and cheese, yams, rice, green bean or broccoli casserole, cabbage, sweet potato pie, cake, and whatever else big mama decided to cook, Read the rest of this entry »

Corduroy’s two cents: Working out

21 11 2008

Happy Friday ya’ll!  Today is going to be super and the weekend is gonna be super duper!  I plan on milking all of the goodness out of it, just as I hope you will.

I wanted to talk about something I feel strongly about.  Maybe I shouldn’t have called it my two cents, because it implies that it is information that in some situations wouldn’t be welcomed.  Being that this is my blog, then I shouldn’t care.  However, I recognize that this subject is a veeeeeeeeery touchy one for women, and I think more women read my blog than dudes, so I’ll be as gentle as I can.

Teenage Love

20 11 2008

Happy Thursday everyone! We’re almost there to the weekend, so just hold on! It’s coming!  Shout out to my main man Diddles for leaving a comment yesterday.  It wasn’t until midday yesterday that I figured out who you were.  Tell your folks I said hey, and I hope your mom is doing well.

There are a couple funny things I heard and saw this morning I wanted to tell ya’ll about before I begin today’s post:

1. So yesterday I posted about ghetto names, and not to belabor the point, I remember briefly seeing an interview with a little black girl who went 4 months without a heart, and being hooked up to an artificial one while she waited on a real one for the transplant.  Read the rest of this entry »

Ghetto Names

19 11 2008

Good morning everybody!  Happy Hump Day!!  I just came in to the plantation and I’m currently experiencing plantation bliss…. I sat down, opened my Outlook, and had NO NEW EMAILS!!  That’s a beautiful thing!  Do you feel me out there??

Yesterday I was talking about Ghetto Snacks, but today I wanna talk about ghetto names.  It may be wrong for me to call these ghetto names, because really they are black names, and it implies that what is ghetto is also black and vice versa.  I know you educated readers out there know better than that, and know that my intent is not to offend you or your ghetto named kinfolk.  It’s all love!!!!

Ghetto Snacks

18 11 2008

Good morning everybody.  Before you’re done with me, let me explain!! What had happened was….

No seriously.  I thought yesterday was gonna be a light one, cause I make it a practice not to do much work on Monday (or any day for that matter), but Mr. Charlie had some crucial tasks that needed to be done from the instant I arrived, and like a good house negro, I did my job.

Anyway, this post here is one that I did before, but there must have been some ghost in the machine that deleted it when I tried to save it.  I put so much into it, that I didn’t feel like doing the entire thing over.  So here it goes one mo gin… Read the rest of this entry »
