Vacation Over...Booo! Lols

Hey Ya'll!

Look whose back, lols...me. Back from sunny Florida. Oh what fun it was! It was so quiet and country! but I loved it. I seriously think I may retire to good ol Panama City. It's a beach town surrounded by swamps, open roads and all that. The beach is a good stretch and they're like shopping center, restaurants and the likes to keep you busy. I felt like Panama City is where you go to relax. You want to party, you may want to hit Miami and I wasn't in the partying mood, lols.

So I traveled United Airlines (thank goodness for no problems cuase you know they been in the news for some ol boolmess lately). Now, because I haven't flown in like...forevers, it took my a minute to catch my bearings but once I got it, I got it.  Here's my only complaints.

1. Everyone should get a meal especially if the flight is 3 or more hours and you have layovers. I just think it is ridiculous, especially for the price of the tickets. I mean ain't none of them cheap! Ju…

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 mome…

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 w…

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 wi…

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!)

Times Are A Bit Crazy....Self Care Is Important

Hey Ya’ll,
How are you all doing? With so much “going on” in this country right about now IN addition to much the craziness going on in my personal life, I thought I would do a self-care post because we...or I really, really need it. And I know we must stay tuned into the goings on around us because many things can/will affect us…some in small ways, some in big ways.
But! Even in stressful times, we must take care of ourselves; physically and mentally. But importantly mentally, especially if you have anxiety or any other issue that can/will get your pressure up.
Me? I’m limiting my intake of things. Social Media – I deleted Twitter from my phone (because for me that’s the worse). Yes, you do get more updated information from the birdie app BUT twitter is also a dumpster fire that attracts the worst of the worst, IMO. I’ve decided to only check it when I’m home and only for 30 to 45 minutes. Facebook, I been unfriended/un-followed many people (same on Twitter). Lately I’m only posting p…

Book To Movie Adaptions

Happy Friday Ya'll!

So I wanted to share some books that have been optioned into Movies/TV shows that I'm looking forward to seeing




Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.






In a far future, post-nuclear-holocaust Africa, genocide plagues o…
