Uncle Sam would be the government, people! The government is triflin' (sp?)!! So I'm pretty sure the majority of folks have found out that WaMu is now JP Morgan Chase, the Feds are officially the "Captain Save a Hos" of big business-- they now own AIG, and even in the health sector-- the federal agencies are slacking!! Yes, ladies and gentleman, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has join the ranks of traveshamockery!
The EPA refuses to formally recognize/set a national standard for the amount of perchlorate allowed in drinking water. For those who don't know, studies have shown that raised perchlorate amounts can interfere with thyroid function and pose developmental health risks, especially for the childrens and fetuses!! Ahhh!! So EPA, what the hell is the hold up? I'm saying, I'm tired of the Feds doing some back-handed bullshiznit!
I'm moving to England.

I'm saying, I love Obama too, but this is just plain ill-advised and inappropriate. Also, heir on the side of caution- I heard they aren't allowing presidential paraphernalia at the voting booths during elections, so make sure you get that haircut taken care prior to elction day...Mmmmk? Kthxbye.
HELL NAWL!!!! (the L was added in for dramatic emphasis)
Sorry McCain, I think your excuse that the American people should focus on the economic crisi is a COP OUT!!!!!!! That's so whack, that's piss poor, it's a futile attempt to diverge the public from the real issue at hand: piss poor preparation :). Besides, isn't the government debating on whether or not to play "captain save a ho" for AIG and the rest of the corporation giants who have caught themselves in a HUGE defecit? The whole goverment "captain save a ho" argument is irritating anyway-- I don't understand how the government can drop 7.1 billion (or however much, I just know it's a HUGE amount) on a corporation but feeding the homeless and building public housing units for the disenfranchised is an issue! I digress...
Back to the issue at hand. I don't want this presidential debate to be postponed for two reasons, the first one is really selfish. But whatever. First reason: the Congressional Black Caucus' Annual Conference is in town and one of their events is the happy hour/presidential debate party at the Renaissance Hotel and The Republic (1355 U St. NW for all my DC Locals out there!) I'm not about to miss out on the opportunity to meet a fine, intellectual, brother because McCain ain't ready. Second reason? Aha! I've been waiting all too long to watch Obama "handle that ass," and by "that ass," I'm referring to McCain. So, with all that being said... I think the presidential debate should move forward-- besides, who said we can't debate the issue of economic crisis?
On another note, you can express your opininon on the "postponement issue" by going here to cast your vote!

They say: “Got Hunger? Grab a Snickers”; I say, “Got Life? Grab a Girlfriend!” Lol, that was borderline lame, I know. But hey, it’s all relevant. Let’s just say, everyone needs a girlfriend! I’m NOT speaking romantics either. I know some of my female viewers may opt not to hang with females because of our pseudo-dramatic behavior, however, I can testify that some of the obstacles I’ve battled were easily overcome with the aid of my girlfriends. As a full-time graduate student and full-time employee (ughz) my stress level is on overload- but having my gals around always alleviates the situation. Whether it be a Sunday brunch or a night on the town, ALWAYS make time for the homies because they are a constant reminder that you can overcome anything, face any challenge, and still have fun, despite whatever issues may come your way
I had brunch this past weekend with some of my colleagues and former housemates from undergrad. It was a breath of fresh air to know that we still had that underlying commonality despite the various paths we chose to pursue after our undergraduate experience. Having my girlfriends as a sounding board and a source of relevance was very uplifting. More so because we are all women of color and doing the damn thing in a society that placed two strikes against us the day we took our first breath of air! Yes. Yes, me and my girlfriends do the damn thing!
Me and My Girlfriends…Suite Suede is a production of “Me and My Girlfriends.” See, Melissa and I go wayyyyyy back, ok no that far back, but we’re about 8 years deep in the game. We started kickin’ it during our high school years in our boring English class. Instead of annotating Shakespeare we discussed the latest fragrances and sales of Victoria Secret. Haha- it’s even funnier now when I begin to reflect on it. Portia (P, as I like to call her) and I, met through Melissa a couple of years ago when I went to hang in NYC one summer. She was the shiznit, and she’s West African (Ghanaian, to be exact), so you know, we started kicking it mad hard. After graduation, once we were full-time employed with generous salaries, scrumptious benefits, business cards, and work e-mail addresses, we started sending accolades of emails to one another about a number issues from the work place to finance and real estate. Out of that production was the reproduction of suite suede. Yes, me and my girlfriends birthed suite suede (no, not in homo-erotic kind of way either).
So the next time you’re going through some things, down and out; hell, the next time you have this brand spankin’ idea that you want to execute—remember, you are not alone. Remind yourself: Me and My Girlfriends! (Girl Power Rocks!)

- Don't focus on competition, if it's for you, nobody can take it from you.
- People in your circle are either feeding you or eating you, and you want to surround yourself by people who are feeding you. Surround yourself with positive people that motivate you and rid your life of those who try to bring you down.
- In order to get people to get people to think outside of the box, you need to cut holes in the box. Let people see the outside of the box, so they see the bigger world around them. (My personal favorite!)

- Gently resurface skin's texture
- Activates surface cell renewal
- Condition skin for softness and smoothness
- Visibly improve skin tone
- Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Read the manual and follow the directions step by step. First, apply the derma-crystals to a clean face and gently massage the crystals into skin for no longer than a minute. (This is your time to shine baby!) Next, apply the serum over the derma-crystals, creating a white foamy substance. Then continue to rub your face for an additional minute. (It helps to sing and make funny faces at this point.) Now, rinse away thoroughly. I chose to use a moist washcloth to wipe away all of the week’s impurities. Olay recommends use up to two times a week for continuous results.
Voila, I truly do look regenerated; spa results for a fraction of the price!

Friday, September 12 at the Roseland Ballroom Glitz and Glam rocked the house at Baby Phat Celebration of the Decade Fashion Show. The Black Glitterati showed up for this Ultra Fabulous show-Serena Williams, the boo-Djimon Hounsou, Egypt, Maxwell Carmelo Anthony, Danity Kane, Latoya Luckett, Fashion Editors from every mag but most importantly, Andre Leon Talley! The fashion wasn't at its par, but Kimora accomplished her goal to spread her fabulosity lifestyle to the fun, fearless, and fabulous. Models donned a 32 inch weave with a sharp japanese bang with dramatic eyes and glossy lips. Unlike all of the other shows I've been to these models were diverse, sexy, and actually looked like they ate! I can't even front I was overly excited to attend this show. Since I was in the 2nd row I was able to take awesome pics! What do you think of the show?!
