I'll Be On Vacation So....





So hey...yeah, I'll be on vacation from Thursday to next Tuesday. Do I have posts scheduled?...hell no. Why? Because I'm on vacation. I'll be away visiting a "friend" and having some fun.

I will be checking 'some' social media platforms of mine because...well, I'm nosy and all. For the most part, I'll catch up on some reading and "uhm other stuff" lols. But for the love that is all good and glorious, I shall be mostly relaxing!

Today's post is the last post for this week.

I will catch up with you guys next week. Until then, Happy Weekend, Happy Partying, Happy Reading and all that other good stuff. PEACE!

It Wasn't Scary But Pennywise?...




Movie: It (2017) | Genre: Horror, Drama | Time: 2 hr, 15 mns








So no, no...It was not scary. I think it pretty much stayed true to the original 1990 series with the exception of one major thing. I will get to that thing in a few.

But let's discuss the person or THING that scared the shit out of me during most ALL of the movie. Yep, that would be Pennywise (Uhm, hats off to Bill SkarsgĂ„rd...cause NINJA! You did the damn thang!). I have to hand it to the director of this movie because the scenes with Penny were fucking scary. Scary to the point where I was screaming every time his big ass head (and not in the late night text manner of  'hey big head' either) hit the screen. I gave myself and my mom (who had the unfortunate position of sitting next to me) a headache, lols. There was this one scene where his ass walked out of a film projector and.....

You know what? never mind, if you haven't seen it...I can't talk about it because I can't do flashbacks at this moment. If you saw the movie, then you know what I'm talking about and...yeah....YOU.know. what.I'm.taking.about.

I liked how the characters decided to face their fears to fight back a mudafuga who decides he wants to come back every twenty-seven gahtdamn years and pretty much, scare and kill kids...SMH. But that's what Pennywise was, a evil entity that fed off of fear.

Now to get to what I didn't like. Mainly, I didn't appreciate how they reduced Mike's character in the movie because if you ever watched the original, it was Mike who figured out about the town of Derry and Pennywise. No disrespect to Ben but how ya'll gonna basically give Ben Mike's part? Ya'll pretty much reduced Mikes character to almost nothing and I got's questions. Mainly WhytheAF?!

And like how did Ben get curved throughout the whole damn movie? Ben pretty much saved Beverley's ass and does he gets the glory? Hell no, that goes to his friend Bill, SMDH. But now that I think back to the original movie, it pretty much happened that way too. I like you Bev but really girl? How you gonna do a dude like that? He.SAVED.YOU.GIRL!

All and all, It was pretty damn good and Pennywise was as I said fucking scary. My family won't get me again, I tell you that. Anyway's, go see if you have the vocal chords and yeah, if clowns don't creep you the hell out.

Did I tell ya'll I hate clowns? No? Yeah, I HATE those creepy fuckers...I do.

I Hate Shopping....




Life's a B**ch, then you DiE (When Shopping That is....)
Tomorrow I'm taking the teenager shopping..ugh! And it's not that I don't love my kid and or don't want to spend time with him but ya'll...I hate shopping in any form. This is me when I have to go shopping:


Then to go with a kid that loves to shop and wanna ask me how does everything look. I mean...where did this kid come from? Oh yeah, that's the baby daddy's gene in him. And by the way, I can't be one of the parents that sits in the food court and just eat, read (sneak my liquor nips into my fountain lemonade)....you know mind my business until he finish. Oh noooo! I gotta go into every store with him.

Also me (I'm telling ya'll, I can and will be dRaMaTiC at times):

It's funny because most times when I tell people I hate shopping, they look at me like I have two heads or say something like "I thought women love to shop" (mostly dumb ass men). Well, I'm not every woman *singing in my Chaka Khan voice*. I hate when my family/friends ask "do you want to go shopping with me?" I'm looking like bish, you know me! You know I don't like no shopping. The only person I go with is my mom and either of my sons (hint: my mom has to force me or bribe me, lols). 

Either way, I hate it. So wish me luck tomorrow. Pray, I survive. Maybe I'll pick up two books on my book list.

Book Review: #Notyourprincess: Voices of Native American Women by Lisa Charleyboy



















Source: NetGalley | Format: eBook | Published: September 12, 2017 | Author: Lisa Charleyboy | Genre: Poetry, Nonfiction | Available: Amazon | Add to Goodreads
This is a beautifully written book of poetry, essays and interviews contributed by Indigenous women and girls.

Akin to #BlackGirlMagic, the women and girls in #Notyourprincess have decided that they no longer want to be portrayed as the stereotypical women. These women and girls are doctors, lawyers, inventor and protesters. They are strong, resilient and beautiful. But mostly they are survivors of genocide and abuse. The stories in this book give you a look into their world. The artwork added to assist in the telling of their stories was a wonderful bonus.

Although I'm not a Indigenous woman, I felt a strong connection to every woman in the book. The author and the women in #Notyourprincess want to you know that they will no longer be silent (that they never really were), that they are not your Tiger Lily, that they will not deal with discrimination...they just won't deal with nonsense and I'm excited for them.

My only issue was that the ARC was badly formatted, hence the four star rating on Goodreads.

Highly recommended.

August Wrap Up (Better Late Than Never)


Yeah, better late than never...lols. Every time I said that I was going to get this post up...of course, something came up. Anyhoo's, this is my wrap-up for the month of August (2017). 
Oh, and I just didn't have the gumption to add the picture of Tasha L. Harrison's book, in the video. Mostly I just got frustrated because there was no way for me to write a text or add it without going through hoops/hurdles...so it's below **Updated video with name of book/pic added (it's really a beautiful cover!)
