~Let’s Back that Thang UP!!!

~Let’s Back That Thang UP!

Let’s second and review the last seven days, shall we. Justin was inducted to SNL five-rs club, white smoke was seen and Shawn found love…

Ok so FIRST thangs FIRST. Chris Hansen is GANSTA! As we know at the end of the day Batchleor is NOTH’N more than a fancy game show. When are these people gonna to recognize Chris AIN’T their homey! These fouls get it twisted. He DON’T care about you! This is Chris’s job. Are the rateings up? Am I liked by the TV audience and executives? That’s what’s on his mind! He’s gotta make sure his CHEDDAR’S straight. Oh Chris it’s STRAIGHT. Yes is it ever. NOBODY stirs a cauldron quite like my BOY! He walked Lindsay in knowing her butt was going home. I SWEAR when she walked out of the car he looked at the camera and smiled with a twinkle in his teeth. GAME ON! Time to lead the lamb to the slaughter.

So Jeckle kindly lead Lindsay to her demise. Then Shawn told her the bad news. You AIN’T the one… tear.. I need to pause there for a moment. What was with the WUSS way he let her down? Man UP Shawn. This AIN’T your first rodeo. What’s all the tears and I’m so sorry. Like that’s somehow gonna to make it STING less. Rip off the band aide and get it over. Even Lindsay was like seriously DUDE? SERIOUSLY! Then when he WOULDN’T shut-up she was like PEACE OUT TOOK OFF HER PUMPS AND BROKE OUT!

Then Shawn picked Catherine but not before Chris deviously gave the pot another stir. He new good and well the girl was there. YET, Jeckle with a slightly sternly sad face walks up to Shawn saying Catherine wanted you to have this. You know as he walked away from the SHOCKED and SCARED Shawn straightening his thinking RATEINGS MUHAHA!!!

DON’T even get me started on the After the Rose Show(I say gripping my heart). Chris just kept it going. He brought Lindsay and Shawn together for the first time since the public dumping. It was so uncomfortable. If the girl didn’t need counseling before she does now. Chris question’s twisted the knife deeper and then he ever so delicately sprinkled salt in for full effect. Then he flipped his cape and Mr. Hide appears to talk to Shawn and Catherine. Next he introduces Des as the next Bachelorette. Then heels together and an FIRM salute to the excutives he was off to the bank BONUS check in hand.

(Side Note) Yes I know Shawn spells his name Sean. It’s my blog and I like Shawn better…

Let’s talk a minute about white smoke. Why was that mess so enthrowing to the world? The world isn’t Catholic. I think it was because the CC KICK’d it old skool. That was kinda PHAT. Anything can be hacked these days. In the same seven days Trump, Beyonce, Michelle Obama and more info was thrown in the streets. The CC was like KNAA all’s you get is black or white smoke. Hack THAT China(Bishops say hands on hips tongues out)!

Friday was a special work out day. One of the clients had canceled. So I had three trainers instead of one. Now a few weeks ago I would had silently CRIED inside with that news. Today I was pleasantly surprised. The extra hands afforded them to try something new. So they put me on this tilted work bench. My original trained on my left, Hulk SMASH at my feet and girl wonder on my right. Hulk bent my knees and held them in formation. Girl Wonder and Jamie bent my arms and held them up. My objective was to grab and pull down weighted pullies. When I pulled down the whole bench back would slide up straighten my legs. It was AWSOME! I felt like an Olympian athlete training for the games. They took no MERCY on me. One YELL’n four more, one YELL’n watch form, the third SCREAMING finish STRONG! Loved it!

But the it all started with JT on SNL. I FELL in love with him at 16. At 40 the BURN was reignited! JT the man is so talented. I’d like to see a member of NO Direction do what he’s done! From ‘Bring it on Down to Vegan Ville’ to ‘Suit and Tie’ the night was his. I felt like a giddy school girl. No MS or wheelchair… great week.

~FAMILY?

~Family?

Have you ever thought about what’s your definition of the word family? Is it only flesh and blood? Albee was out of town a couple of days last month. While he was gone my Mom came up to stay with me. Oh and yes her, AG and I went cosmetic shopping at Nordstrom again. This time I was looking for the perfect black eyeliner. I know your say’n that’s basic couldn’t you just grab that from like Target. NO you would be sadly mistaken. It’s like shopping for a diamond. It is all about cut, shape, color and longevity. I DON’T want any blue/black or grey black. The shape needs a true point. A water/tear proof liner. Needs to a soft pencil not a liquid. So we fanned out Walker style and went on the hunt. The perfect black was found a NARRS. There was no under tones of black. It effortlessly went on, not chalky oh and tear proof. Matched that with a few Smash Box and Mac shadows, perfection!

(Side bar) What happened to wife-e privacy??? Nordstrom EMAILED Albee the receipt!! WHAAAT! REALLY Nordies! REALLY! Way to BLOW UP my spot. I had spent more than I’ve EVER spent on eyeliner. I was TRY’N to keep that little fact between me, my Mom and lil Sis! SSSESH!!

I digres back to it now.. That week on Wednesday when Albert got home the Washington Fam had dinner together. My Parents, AG and Hubby Mike, Albert and I. Mom and AG made dinner for us. Mom made pork tender loin, fresh water corn bread, yams and cabbage. AG helped with the process of everything. Oh and YES Mom put her FOOT in it. Now technically speaking AG and I have been taught to “make” the same meal. Yet Moms just always taste better in my opinion.

At the table NO cell phones were seen. Not because there were any rule made. No rule was needed. It was simply time to eat and enjoy each other’s company. I personally HATE some aspects of the Smart Phone phenomenon. When did it become acceptable to interrupt whatever you are doing to read a text or send a text? What about checking FB, emails or a Tweet from a Twit? I know people think they think they can hold a conversation, check text and send text at the same time. For argument sake let’s say you can. Does that somehow make it not rude? I have recently joined the smart phone nation. But DON’T get it twisted I have ZZERO temptation to read something while interacting with other people.

You could feel the love in the air. We just ate, told stories some old some new and laughed. No one owns tomorrow. Why not cherish today. I was recently told the most HOUNTING story by an older sister in my congregation. Her husband of nearly sixty years died last year. On the evening before his death he asked her for a kiss when she was leaving the hospital. She shyly declined saying not in front of her grown children and left. Bill, her husband died that night. She never saw him again and wishes she would have except that kiss. My Heart shatters a bit just thinking of the pain in her eyes as she told me. Lost moments…

Then there is family with different blood. Smith is a friend that has crossed the divide into family. She was in town last week. Her visit brought an OLD friend I consider family out of the wood works. T! There really is NO other way to describe her. She is a beautiful black woman full of life. I’ve known T since I was 16. One of my all-time favorite pictures of myself is of the two of us in our teens. She still enters a room the same way. She lock’s eyes with ExCLAIMS GIRL! Depending on her head tilt and look on her face GIRL could mean whatz up, how YOU do’n, I got to tell you SOMETH’N or simply HI. Whatever it is it’s always EXCITEING. It could be a day, month or a year since we’ve seen each other DOESN’T matter. With the word GIRL we are family. Come to think about it T is one of a few that knew me when I was walking, running, hop’n and skipping.

I LOVE that girl!

Another person that fits in that category is Nic. That month in the hospital she was my ROCK! She visited me more than any other person. That meant more to me than I can describe. She is for sure is when the chips are down friend. There are others that fit this s category as well. Like friends that live on the other side of the country. If they were still here we would be watching their daughter grow-up. All while we drank beer and wine they’n cards eat’n sushi! Oh and there’s NO cap on this group.
There is ONE distinction between the groups. At that family dinner if a SQWEEKER would had come out I wouldn’t care. Blood Family would have looked at me and rolled their eyes and laughed. Conversation wouldn’t skip a beat. With friends NO matter how close I would have been MORTIFIED!

I am blessed to have both sets. Just another reason to be thankful. Even though I have more than one health issue I am WHOLE! Thanks Guys! LET’S KEEP IT POP’N
