Christmas Caroling

Christmas is a time you really care? I know I don't. :laughing5:

Any who....

Only two things I love about Christmas: The carols/songs and the gift receiving!

What else is there anyway?

Christmas is about spending money! Point blank. Yeah, you get a day off from work, a few days off from school, get to spend time with your family, put a smile on the faces of your children... :blah5: :blah5: :blah5:...

But come on! Go ahead and ask yourself: What is Christmas really about? And don't you DARE say it's about the birth of Jesus! :sign6: As a person who was born and raised in church (my grandmother, step-grandmother, and mother were/are very religious) and as a Christian, I know that Jesus Christ was born in August. If you want to know more click here.

...WHOA.... I felt a rant coming on...

The real reason I started this post was to show you guys this video!

If you can listen to the whole song, without cracking a smile, I commend you!

:occasion7: Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, or Happy Kwanzaa! :occasion7:

Thank you for tuning in to hear my two cents! :wav:

Luv ya lots, M3RLz.... :love4:

12 Days of Christmas --- M3RLz-style

It's that time of year again!

"Christmas is the season when you buy this year's gifts with next year's money."

I don't know whom that is from, but that person hit the nail right on the head!

Since I didn't celebrate my 26th birthday this year, I chose to spoil myself this holiday season. I usually get 1 or 2 gifts anyway, so while I still don't have any responsibilities, why not have some fun?

Decided to go the "12 days of Christmas" route, but since I set a $200 limit, I settled with starting on the 7th day of Christmas. I think this will be the best gift-receiving Christmas ever!


On the 7th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 7 Ouch-less Headbands from Goody!

On the 6th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 6 Sexy Undies from Victoria Secret!

On the 5th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 5 new (Natural) Hair products!

On the 4th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 4 Moisturizing Body Lotions from Bath & Body!

On the 3th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 3 movies from Columbia House!

On the 2th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 2 Winter necessities: a long pea coat & knee-high boots!

On the 1th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me: 1 brand new Blackberry Bold! -- WAIT A MINUTE! Scratch that "Blackberry" part. I went to purchase it today but the customer service guy told me it would cost $400 instead of $250! No bueno....Guess I'll have to settle for 2 new hats instead... :0(

Join me as I sing:

On the 7th day of Christmas, my spoiled self bought for me:
  • 7 Ouch-less Headbands,
  • 6 Sexy VS Undies,
  • 5 Natural Hair products!!!!!
  • 4 Moisturizing Body Lotions,
  • 3 movies,
  • 2 Winter necessities,
  • AND A new blackberry bold! 2 new (not as cool as a Blackberry bold) winter hats!



Happy holidays from me and mine to you and yours! :0)

Since my BC (big cut for the newbies), I didn't have enough hair to twist into a style. After every wash/co-wash, I would try twisting to help my hair dry faster and they would always come out.

Well 6 months later, I've finally achieved the look I was going for!

I had used Amla in my hair for the first time but it was a disaster. (Click her for the story)
I thought the quick-fix would last until the next day, but after I took my hair down,
it was almost just as hard and dry as the day before. I ran out to my nearest beauty supply store, and purchased Elasta QP and a few other items. I let the Elasta QP sit in my hair for an hour & co-washed with Suave Naturals and HEHH. My hair felt soft and manageable & smelled great!

I left a bit of Suave Naturals & HEHH in my hair but then I used KC Knot Today as a leave-in and castor oil to seal all the moisture in, before I began twisting my hair. All of this took 3 hours. I know it seems long but I did all this while watching the movie "Narc" & plus I had to stop for a dinner break. :0)

To maintain my cute twists, I sprayed my hair with Natural Hold Locking Spray. I'm gonna leave the twists in until Sunday morning and probably wear a twist-out for church.

This question is for my natural divas: how long did it take you to get a great twist-out?

That is the original post I submitted to Do any of my wonderful subscribers/readers have any advice to give me?

Today, I used amla for the first time. Been hearing great things about it and wanted to try it out since henna didn't work for me (it made my hair very very dry and hard).

I went to different sources and was told to mix it with EVOO and an oil. The only oil I had was coconut so that's what I used. I left it in for 45mins and washed it out with Dr Bronners. It was a DISASTER! My hair was hard, dry, and HARD!!!

Then I DT'd with an egg & mayo since my hair loves protein but I was told that protein only makes it worse!

To make matters worse, my 4A pen spring/spiral curls loc'd up! I almost passed out!!! After a few minutes of shock, I decided that if I couldn't get my hair right, I was gonna HAVE to put a relaxer in!

I used a mix of water, castor oil, & cantu's leave-in (which always make my hair soft & manageable) and used my fake denman brush. Thank GOD it worked!

Even though my hair hated the amla, my curl pattern looks TERRIFIC! Sorry for the long post, but what did I do wrong?

Hair Update 11/26/09

As I mentioned before, because I didn't know what to do with my natural hair, I got some braids.

After 2 months, I finally took them out.

Loving the new length! And since I had my hair twisted for 2mths, I have beautiful curls. I think I can get a weak out of them. :0)

Right now, every morning, I spritz my hair with a mixture of water and castor oil. Then I add a mixture of shea butter and coconut oil. Shake it out and voila!

After church, on Sunday evening, I'll pamper my hair with a henna treatment and deep condition for an hour.

Halloween 2K9

My mother is the most religious person I've ever met. That being said, Halloween is very much frowned upon. It is "forbidden" to dress up (unless it was required, like when I was in elementary and would dress up as a witch) and especially to go trick-or-treating. Every year it's the same thing: "Not in my house!".

My mom doesn't even answer the door when people ring the doorbell or knock and she's waiting for the day someone gets the nerve to egg the place!

But guess who participated for the first time in 26 years?

It was only because she wasn't home. Not trying to bite the hand that feeds me! LOL

I learned from the comedian Sinbad that if I'm gonna get in trouble, I might as well make the best of it! Guess who I went as? Get ready for it!


I loved it! My costume consisted of this:

+ A low-cut Top

= A Horny Chick
(Get it?!?! LOL)

Here are the pics:

Do you see how low the cut is? smh lol

I changed the color to match the outfit!

I hate beer but I had to take a pic with one!

I copied this from a friend's facebook status! Thanks Yolly.

"Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved."

There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

A Healthy Level of Insanity

This is one of the funniest emails I've received in a while. Enjoy! :0)


1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and
point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

3. Insist that your e mail address is: Xena-Warrior-Princess@... or Elvis-the-King@...

4. Every time someone asks you to do something ask if they want fries with that.

5. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "IN."

6. Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.

7. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks.
Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

8. In the memo field of all your checks, write 'for sexual favors.'

9. Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy."

10. Adjust the tint on your monitor so that the brightness
level lights up the entire work area. Insist to others that you like it that way.

11. Don't use any punctuation

12. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

13. Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."

14. Sing along at the opera.

15. Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly
the same outfits. Wear them one day after your boss does.
(This is especially effective if your boss is of the opposite gender.)

16. Send e-mail to the rest of the company to tell them what
you're doing. For example, "If anyone needs me, I'll be in the
bathroom, in stall #3".

17. Call the psychic hot line and don't say anything.

18. Have your coworkers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Hard.

19. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won!, I won! Third time this week!"

20. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the
parking lot, yelling, "Run for your lives; they're loose!"

21. Tell your boss, "It's not the voices in my head that
bother me; it's the voices in your head that do."

22. Tell your children over dinner. "Due to the economy, we
are going to have to let one of you go."

23. Every time you see a broom, yell "Honey, your mother is here!"

And finally...

24. Pass along to others so they may enjoy a good laugh or smile! :)

Movie List - 09/2009

I'm going to start a new category called: Monthly Movie List.
Since I watch so many movies, I'm going to start posting a monthly movie list of movies watched during a particular month. Each movie will be rated, using imdb's method, from 1 (worst movie ever) to 10 (best thing since sliced bread).

Now there will be some favoritism; movies including Denzel Washington, Bruce Willis, and a few others will never be listed under a 5, no matter how horrid! (But let's be serious, they wouldn't ever appear in a crappy movie anyway lol).

Now keep in mind that each movie is rated based on their movie category. For example: "The Marine" is rated 7/10 but had a really crappy script. The 7 pertains to the action sequences, not whether or not it deserves an Oscar! LOL

I definitely want some feedback on movies posted, so please stop being so shy readers!
First up: 09/2009

Movie List - 09/2009

Stay Alive - 7/10
Dead Calm - 7/10
Coraline - 7/10
Fear Dot Com - 4/10
Sin Nombre - 7/10 (Could have been better!)
Tortured - 7/10
The Foot Fist Way - 7/10 (Could have been better!)

First Time with a Condom

I recall my first time with a condom, I was 16 or so.

I went in to buy a packet of condoms at the corner pharmacy.
There was this beautiful woman assistant behind the counter,
and she could see that I was new at it.

She handed me the package and asked if I knew how to wear one.

I honestly answered, 'No, this is my first time.' So she
unwrapped the package, took one out and slipped it over her
thumb. She cautioned me to make sure it was on tight and
secure. I apparently still looked confused. So she looked
all around the store to see if it was empty. It was empty.

'Just a minute,' she said, and walked to the door, and locked

Taking my hand, she led me into the back room, unbuttoned her
blouse and removed it. She unhooked her bra and laid it aside.
'Do these excite you?' She asked. Well, I was so dumb-struck
that all I could do was nod my head. She then said it was time
to slip the condom on.

As I was slipping it on, she dropped her skirt, removed her
panties and lay down on a desk. 'Well, come on', she said,
'We don't have much time.'

So I climbed on her. It was so wonderful, that unfortunately,
I could no longer hold back and KAPOW, I was done within a few

She looked at me with a bit of a frown. 'Did you put that
condom on?' she asked.

I said, 'I sure did,' and held up my thumb to show her.

She fainted.

A Man & his Date

A young man and his date were parked on a back road some
distance from town, doing what young men and women do.

Abruptly, the girl stopped the man dead in his tracks.
"I really should have mentioned this earlier, but I'm
actually a hooker and I charge $20 for sex."

The man reluctantly paid her, and they did their thing.
After the obligatory cigarette, the man sat in the driver's
seat, staring out the window.

"Why aren't we going anywhere?" asked the girl.

"Well, I should have mentioned this before, but I'm
actually a taxi driver, and the fare back to town is $25."

Sunday Inspirations

Whatever you're going through,
just know that GOD is not mad at you.

When all of your dreams are shattered
when we don't understand
just know that GOD has another plan - Taranda Greene

GOD doesn't call the qualified. 
He qualifies you as you go

"If God does not love you, 
how could you have done the things you have done?"

God Gives every bird it's food, 
but He does not throw it into its nest...

"Only you hold the key to your own doorway to Heaven. 
It doesn't travel with you when you die 
and there's no way to break in -- open your door to God now, before it's too late."

"I asked GOD for all things that I might enjoy life 
GOD Said NO I will give you Life so That you can enjoy all things"

An Old Man & his Dog

An old man had a dog he just loved but the dog had the bad
of attacking anything that moved including people. His
friends told him that if he had the dog fixed he would lose
his aggressions and quit this behavior.

So the old man had his dog fixed and a few days later was in
his front room when the mailman came up the steps. The dog
jumped up and went right thru the screen door and attacked
the mailman. The old man ran out and pulled his dog off and
began apologizing to the mailman.

He said, "I am so sorry, I don't know what to do or say. My
friends told me he would quit attacking people if I had him
fixed. I just don't know what to do."

The mailman picked himself up and said, "You should have
had his teeth pulled, I knew when he came out the door he
wasn't going to screw me."

British Airways

This scene took place on a British Airways flight between Johannesburg, South Africa & London.

A white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black man.

Very disturbed by this, she called the air hostess. 'You obviously do not see it then?' she asked. 'You placed me next to a black man. I did not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat.'

'Be calm please,' the hostess replied. 'Almost all the places on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another place is available.'

The hostess went away & then came back a few minutes later.
'Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy Class. I spoke to the captain & he informed me that there is also no seat in Business Class. All the same, we still have one place in First Class.'

Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued.

'It is not usual for our company to permit someone from Economy Class to sit in First Class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting.'

The Hostess turned to the black guy, & said, 'Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First Class.'

At that moment, the other passengers, who'd been shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up & applauded.

This is a true story.

WELL DONE, British Airways!!

Hair Update - 9.23.09

Since I can't keep my hands out of my hair, I've decided to braid it for 2 months.

I really want to keep it in longer but I have a problem being patient:

  • First Day: I'm bored with it,
  • First Week: I get really, really antsy and want a new style,
  • First month: I'm sick and tired of it and can't wait to take it out!

So in order to keep my hair in this style a little longer, I bought human hair instead of synthetic. Not only does it cost more, but I can wash it as much as I would my regular hair (but I won't).

Anyway, here's some new pics from the first day.

Tried to channel Ms Wendy Williams, "How you doing?"
but ended up with a duck face instead. (LOL)

Ignore the curtains, the braces, and the scared look on my face!

More pics soon! :0)
