holiday volunteering x3

every year since '04 i've been faithfully participating in holiday volunteering. mainly major holidays such as thanksgiving, christmas, and easter. holidays whn most families get together to celebrate with dinner and (or) gifts ; and thn there are the less fortunate ones that either no longer have a family to celebrate with for the holidays or jst cant afford to provide for their family how they want. students like myself help during these holidays with food, gifts, clothes, so on & so forth. local churches & shelters give us ths beautiful opportunity to indulge in such a wonderful deed. below are jst a few pictures from the thanksgiving pakaging. second to the dinner we had for the heritage village senior citizens home which took place 11/20/2008*
its such a beautiful feeling before, during, and after ths day. i had sooo much fun & i couldnt thnk of doing anything else today but help the less fortunate & give whatever it is i can give. i know the people we helped today will be eternally grateful and our work will be appreciated. its always better to give than recieve :]

11.22.08 nght with dannie :]

omg so tonght had to be theeee most LAUGH OUT LOUD nght of the month! literally. so ths is how it went ; i did a little running around in the beginning of my day, went to see my godchild thn hurried to pick up dannie! we started our nght like any other friendship ; with nothing but gossip, gossip, & more gossip. yum! thn decided to eat out at the applebees on springfield ave * --i figured it'll be classless & tacky but believe it or not the establishment carried thmselves verrrry well & i was very satisfied. although our waitress couldve did without the speech impediment lol but whos to say my speaking is 100% correct ya know? ANYWHO! we started the meal off with conversation while we waited....... and waited...... and waited patiently for our appetizers :) FINALLY whn nicole (the waitress) came i enjoyed a wonderful caesar salad & she had mozzarella sticks with marinara dipping sauce (which she didnt eat by the way! ugh) laughed practically through the whole meal lol meanwhile we're connecting in ways unimaginable & finding out what ELSE we could possibly have in common. yet STILL laughing :-D half hour goes by & nicole comes back to the table for the 17th time & asks us if we're ready to order lol so we finally decided on our main entree`. i ordered the grilled & asiago chicken with garlic mashed potatoes & steam veggies (ooh lala*) & dannie ordered a short stack of babybck ribs & fries (which yet AGAIN, she didnt eat! argh!) throughout our dinner i could barely chew my food or swallow my sprite *with a lemon* because every other word that came outta dannies mouth was OUT OF THS WORLD! i laughed, laughed, laughed, laughed, laughed. i mean, no exaggeration necessary you guys. so im sitting down, literally devouring my meal whn outta nowhere dannie brings up the topic abt her obsession with lighter skinned males. once again, we have smething in common. i mean with me i wouldnt say obsession but 2 outta 3 of the boyfrnds i've ever had was lighter than me, it wasnt a requirement (lol) but it was a religious pattern ya know? so i explained how my first love* larry was lightskin & my second was jst as light. so shes like larry? big ears? short? howard? im like OMFG! PLEASE DONT TELL ME......... thn she cuts me off & says "yes i used to talk to him" OMG! WTF! YOU GOTS TO BE KIDDING ME! was the only thngs that were going thru my mind at ths point.... like ths was jst another thng to add on to our list of "thngs in common" & it was jst getting freakier by the second. so we go into another discussion abt how our current boyfrnds are a tad bit darker & how we'd rather thm over our ex's lol so moving on... we get on the infamous topic of yes yes, you already know! SEX!! i explain to her how im saving myself for marriage but im not totally innocent & thn we jump into the "other thngs besides sex" convo lol you guys! im telling you! it was sooo juicy! so we're talking, and talking, and making fun of the "fashion NOTS", and talking..... lol every moment was jst the absolute best! so eventually we were done chowing down & it was time to wrap it up. we paid for our food separately so the waitress had to tally exactly whos was whos because she assumed we were lesbos & whoever played the role of the boyfriend would handle the check lmfao okay okay no! we jst forgot to tell her lol any who as im evaluating MY check, im thinking to myself... did i really eat $18.48 worth of food? or am i jst being cheap again? lol i paid credit & she paid ca$h ---- after everything was handle we noticed we had occurred a little itty bitty problemo ; whos gona leave the tip?? lol after go back & forth abt how much would be proper we agreed to disagree & left ths -------------> lmfao yes indeedy, two buckaroos under a heinz ketchup bottle lol lol lol! hey times is hard & it be's that way! lol but overall i enjoyed myself to the fullest extent possible & tonght was definitely a nght to remember :] & thn whn i got home i kinda felt bad abt the whole "tip" thng, i mean because hypothetically speaking, WHAT IF she had 13 kids, 9 babydaddies who didnt do CRAP to support thm, living in a two room shack with the tub & toilet in the kitchen & depends solely on her tips...... would we be held accountable for her "financial" mishaps for tonght? lol idk jst a thought.

2008 MTV Europe Music Awards

none other thn the daring ms.Estelle wearing a beautiful disaster at the 2008 MTV Europe music awards which took place on Nov 6,2008. honestly ths paper mache replica looks jst about as attractive as a 2 legged dog. GRANTED shes freaking it like a Dolce & Ganbana original but we can obviously see its NOT. & OMG it has pockets! ughh! dont get me wrong most of the time she has ths unique style that i jst admire but whn i saw ths heep of a mess i thought "omg wtf?" -- wearing a beige paper bag is a little risky but hey if thats what passes for a disguised compliment or a few papparazi flicks so critics can later dissect it thn baby so be it :)

& there are the bi-polar days :]

but who doesnt love those! haha

the shoe wheel - a no? or a GO!

alright ladies! so whn it cmes to spacesaving? the shoewheel has to be #1 on my list! Rakku (who by the way is a FREAKING genius!) came up with ths unique idea to create such an invention! i happen to be a shoe fanatic & whn i came across ths i jst had to GRAB IT! it holds abt 30 pairs of shoes - wedge heels, stilettos, flats, etc & is priced at $65. okay so its a little expensive but its sooooo WORTH it! not to mention it also holds sneakers (omg!) so you'd buy it online & it also comes in black, silver & white. i think its a GREAT invention & without it i'd be completely lost! im not a major fan of sneakers, more of a shoe person but with ths it doesnt discriminate & i jst adore it! please GET ths ASAP! heey! & get ths ; OPRAH owns one! :-D

The Real Housewive$ of Atlanta --

*atlantas housewives*
Bravo has produced a nonstop controversial series by the name of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. who are these magnificent ladies & eminent wives? non other than the glamorous Lisa Wu Hartwell, the OVER-THE-TOP NeNe Leakes, the wonderfuuul Deshawn Snow, the savvy Kim Zolciak and the fabulous* Sheree' Whitfield! hardworking, independent, intellectual women of Atlanta, Georgia. the wives of prominent athletes, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, etc show you that they're not totally dependent on their husbands wallets but can scrap for themselves. OMG i jst love it!

Ms. Lisa Wu Hartwell x3 --

Lisa* who i admire the most, is the life of the party, beautiful, full of energy, & portrays a character of an aweson wife! shes probably the main reason why my eyes are glued to the television every tuesday at 10pm :] she has a sparkling personality & dazzling looks! shes loves to have duty with E V E R Y thing thats has A N Y thing to do with business & shes perfect in front of a camera! *QUOTE* "i just love the camera! it gives me a chance to be myself & jst live!" well Lisa you are definitely eye candy & i idolize you! right after my motherdearest*! so continue doing what you do because its appreciated!

short hair or long hair? hot or not?

OKAY! every since rihanna (who i absolutely love by the way) made an exhilarating transition from long ( pon de replay, SOS, unfaithful) to short (umbrella, take a bow, live your life) its been a trendsetting extravaganza in the wonderful world of glitsz & glam! celebrities that rage from Keyshia Cole, to Beyonce Knowles, all the way to even the Queen of R&B herself Ms.Mary J Blige have tremendously switched over to the Flintstone's very own Betty "bob" appeal. is it an impecable hot? or a fashion hairstyling NOT?!

tmobile + google = G1

The Infamous G1

so theres all ths controversy abt the infamous G1* which came out October 22, 2008 - android market, 3G network, MP3, 3.1 megapixel, touch screen, Gmail, jst abt the closest thng to heaven on earth! i own one & absolutely love it! why its my baby! i recieved it November 3, 2008 & its been literally glued to my hands ever since!

Tmobile G1 vs Apple iphone
nowadays it seems all the hype between myspace, facebook & phone conversations are centered around who takes the millennium cake?! the iphone-3G or the G1-3G? quite frankly i believe they're neck & neck with one another. apples iphone's capabilities are OUT OF THIS WORLD! buuuut the G1s android community * ringdroid has to be the greatest creation in 3G network history! i can go on & on until im blue in the face abt these two but ultimately we all know i'll be here for days. they're both incredibly amazing but i would without a doubt take the G1 over the iphone ANYDAY! simply because its waaay cheaper & the keypad is verry useful & comes in handy during those days whn us females have our nails done* or whn we jst wana pig out but is afraid to touch the screen whn receiving a text because the iphone is ULTRA sensitive to grease & such. so you ask who takes the cake in my perspective? the G1*****
