This and that

- Saw the funniest exchange this morning between two old ladies on University Ave in front of the hospitals. One lady was about 5'8" and the other was about 4'11". So as I passed by the taller lady said "You're wearing my coat and I'm wearing yours" as she pulled at the shorter lady's coat. I was fully expecting her to try to exchange coats right there on the sidewalk. Actually I'm not sure if they did, it was too cold and windy and I wasn't waiting around to watch.

- Breaking news!! No nothing to do with that eediat that chop off she hair. No. My man Obadele Thompson is marrying Marion Jones! and not only that but Jones is expecting! Wow! Good thing I never really post off my thoughts on Jones (or maybe I did but I cant find them anymore) cause I cant disrespect a fellow HC bredren. Actually if it was anyone else but Oba I think I'd probably have made this one into a fairly sarcastic post but dude gets enough flack from the bajan public and politicians already and as far as I remember from back in the day he's a good guy so respect due and I wish him and Marion nothing but the best of luck.

- Cranky I did a check and I did post on the Black History Month thing last year. Not much has changed on my feelings there and occurrences like the one at Wilfrid Laurier that Straight from Scarborough spoke on recently (which seems to have not gotten much coverage at all) still show why some Canadians need an education on other cultures. Yes sir its just like Kanye said 'Racism's still alive they just be concealing it'.

- This had me laughing yesterday. Found it on Radmila's blog. All I can say is Lysol that's ruff.

- Saw a street kid on Queen St W yesterday begging for change with this sign "Need money for Penis Enlargement. I keep coming up short". Was tempted as I walked by to say either "Bredren I think I can spare ya a lil something" or "Star so is you that tief my sign". lol

We are celebrating Black History Month in Germany and focus on Afro-German artists.

We want to bring the concept of Black History Month to Germany

I love how the homeless people have better signs.

Marion Jones can have babies? I would have thought all the steroids would have ruined that. Kidding, I am kidding.

"Star so is you that tief my sign".

That he's begging is sad, but I bet he would have gotten a laugh if you had said that. :)

It's random thought and links like these that make your day.
Oba and Marion...well, well, well, what is there to say, you think the child will be a olympic champion. Where will they set up house?

Love the post/pics on the link blog.

lysol for feminine hygiene? seems more like sterilization!

i had no idea marion jones's mother is belizean...no wonder my mother always rooted for her.

Abeni said...

Nahmix..you don't remember Marion had the Belizean flag during the Sydney Olympics? Hope this works out for Marion..that's my girl!

Yo that kid would have got some money off me. A laugh is worth my change. I was talking to my boss who's from St. Thomas about Black History Month and she didn't realize how lame it is in the U.S. I told her you can only write so many papers about Rosa Parks, MLK, and George Washington Carver before you lose it.

Isn't this Marion's second child by an Olympian?

Jdid?

Check my Blog for reaction to Oba's potential nuptial, that man to me is a bit aloof, met him at Liberty 98.1 FM and he was like "HERE I AM" I recall thinking at the time; "Hello, excuse me? I do not abase myself at God - as we friends, and you want a burnt offering? Who is you?"
