the Perfect date...

i was asked to describe my ideal date... hmmm..

well i don't have an ideal date. The only thing I would request -- is that it be memorable. Something slightly out of the box. We don't have to go to an extreme in obscurity, but I am not a fan of the typical 'dinner & a movie.' Now, diamonds are a boy's best pal... but money isn't a requirement (i mean, it helps.. A LOT... but not required). I tend to be more impacted by something customized to the chemistry between us. A comic convention... car show... poetry reading and live music... skydiving (going next weekend;)..

Okay, so when dating someone new... we can think outside the box, but still play it relatively safe. Now, when 'dating' someone i am involved with.. the bar is raised substantially. In that case, the key words are ROLE PLAY. i *heart* role play. Come home in a UPS uniform ... or... play along when i turn our bathroom into a looker room (yes... i do have a football helmet and some shoulder pads).

so... WANNA PLAY...?

the view from the BACK...

This will sound a bit strange, but there is something irresistible about a strong back. Call me crazy, but if i don't think your BACK can handle it, i lose interest INSTANTLY. I am known to refer to a fella as a 'STURDY RIDE'--need a bruh that can withstand the pressure.

"Work is for people who don't know how to fish..."

Actually came across this on the commute home... from work *sad face*. This was attached to some old pick up, so i assumed the owner probably brought it because of a love of fishing. I instantly related this weather-worn sticker to the saying ... give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime...

Anyone else hungry? Cause I am starving...(and so ready to learn)!!

the HUSBAND type... (real talk)

"Florida State safety Myron Rolle would be among the top 50 players selected in the 2009 NFL draft. Too bad he isn't going to be there. Rolle, who won a Rhodes scholarship in November, will head overseas to Oxford to earn a one-year Master's degree in medical anthropology."

Talk about HUSBAND material. I came across this fella browsing the net. Why have I never heard of him before? I am kinda in my 'bitter, anti-man' phase right now, but this dude could make me see the LIGHT. The boy has excelled academically and athletically since day one (did I mention that he maintained 4.0 while studying pre-med). Moreover, instead of playing football in the NFL, he has chosen to complete med school (Rhodes scholar recipient) And while obtaining his advanced med degree, he will open up a medical clinic in his impoverished home town. BRAINS, BRAWN, ... HEART. Really? Where was he when I was in school?!

What else can i say, the dude is AMAZING. Truly an inspiration.**Myron, you got a big fan over here, keep up the GREATNESS!!**

...and as i say to everyone making moves, 'MEET you at the TOP'...
(heck, i might have to meet u infront of a paster and 100 of our closest friends *wink*)

the 7eventh...

I (un)apologize…


Sorry for not fitting the mold and having the passion and mental veracity to express my less-than-popular point of view


Sorry for the way I acted when u hollar’d at me from the RANGE.. guess I should have appeared more enthusiastic… and that whole conversation about owning a range and not owning a pair of HOUSE KEYS was way outta line.


Sorry for having the BALLS to embrace all of me… feminine and masculine


Sorry for having Jay, Booba, Britney, & Weezy on the same playlist. Sorry for being raised below the poverty line, but somehow always speaking ABOVE ur head.


Sorry for not being the perfect sudo-man… pretty enuff to get your attention, but basic enough to blend in with your boys (WTF). Sorry for being able to hoop better than you. Sorry for having more ambition.


Sorry for asking if you played chess… had a 401(k)…or a goal you were working to accomplish in the next two years. Sorry for not having an iphone or the latest kicks to prove my worth..


Sorry for asking you to show me something different.

Sorry that you will tell everyone who will listen that you are looking for ME, unfortunate for u – when I was in front of you, you couldn’t see me.

Sorry…. for you..
