Who wants to go do hoodrat stuff with me?

And if you "smoke with cigarettes"... thats a plus.



Little boy is in the system and he's 7... the teacher in me shudders for any that have to deal with this kid in the future...

But the regular guy in me... is laughing my ass off.

Trying to ball...

So in addition to not blogging, I've been, apparently, trying to act like I have a lot of money.

In what may be a misguided attempt to step my game up and help stimulate the economy, I've recently purchased a couple things that have left quite the dent in my pockets but in some respects have increased the quality of my life...

The first would be my snazzy new glasses... in my opinon... they're quite nice. New glasses are nice, but can get quite expensive... and it's never the glasses, but those damn lenses. Luckily, I've got some of that health insurance to cover SOME of the cost...

The most important of my purchases however... is my iPhone.

Yes, I am of one of those iPhone people... and you know what... I love it. It seriously is one of the best things I've ever purchased. I won't get into it too much, but yea, it's great. And a number of my friends are more than slightly jealous.

And even though I have to go to the Apple Store and be one of those
people... it's a small price to pay for the gloriousness that is the iPhone (White folks sure do love the Apple Store)

And they even gave me a completely new one, when mine started acting funny after I started plugging it into random things to see if it would work... don't do this.



My most recent purchase and maybe the one that hurt my feelings/pocket the most is my new LRG 'Time is Money' G-Shock...

I'd never had a G-Shock before, and when I saw this, I was quite enamored with it. Besides being the colors of my people (Naija what!), it's really well made with lots of attention to detail and one of only 500 in the world.


It comes in this nifty box...



and is made of the very stylish white rubber... bling is for bamas.

There are tons of details (and a panda) on the band of the watch and the back of it... just well made all around.

So now as I try and catch my breath from some of these purchases, I'll be waiting for that Uncle Sam stimulus check... I've done all the stimulating that I can handle for quite a while.

Been soo long...

Yea I know... who does this guy think he is? He doesn't blog for two months and then comes back as if everything is all good...
My apologies folks... I've been derelict in my duties, but at the same time I've been trying to enjoy life rather than document it.

Yea... that's my excuse...

Anyway... I guess I'll start with my spring break.

I cleaned my closet, which is a really big feat... and most importantly, I went to Orlando to kick it with my girl and go to the Jay-Z/Mary J. show.

The show was amazing folks. I had never seen Jay or Mary J. perform live before, and to put it simply, they did the damn thing.


I don't think I'd ever seen someone put as much into every song as Mary J. does. (That's her singing "No More Drama") I always made jokes about how much passion Mary seemed to have before she got her life together and how mellow she is now... but that is not the case. I actually think she was in tears a couple of times. One of the best parts of the show was looking around at all the dudes that obviously came for Jay, but knew almost every Mary song. She really is the queen of Hip-Hop. Oh... and she is in pretty damn good shape right about now. She could get it...



And then there was Jay...

What can I say about this dude that hasn't been said? He's a great performer and definitely hasn't lost a step. And there is something almost electric about an entire arena throwing up the Roc and singing every song word for word. There was a point when Jay started to play about 20 different songs, just to reinforce the knowledge that he has more hits than anyone else.

Aside from the music, the most entertaining part of the evening was the audience. There were girls in freakum dresses galore... trying to climb up the stadium stairs and not fall, dudes in their Easter Church suits, 40 something white folks, and at least one 8 year old. Jay and Mary draw quite the eclectic crowd apparently...

Anyway, here are a couple more pics from the night... enjoy...

Oh yea The Dream opened... and sang 3 songs... and had dancers... doing things...(that's him in the white coat...)
