Naked Man Hijacks Bus Carrying Students


ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- An angry, naked man commandeered a school bus full of teenage students Thursday in Atlanta, police said. The man drove the bus for less than a mile before a student confronted him and the bus crashed into a wall off the road, according to police. The incident started Thursday afternoon when the bus stopped to let students out, said Atlanta police officer James Polite. Arris Pitmon, 23, darted toward the bus and hoisted himself in through an open window, Polite said. Pitmon took control of the bus as the frightened driver ran to the back of it, the officer said. While the bus was moving, the man abandoned the steering wheel and walked toward the back of the bus, Polite added. A student then ran toward the steering wheel, prompting the man to fight the student. The unmanned bus continued until it left the roadway and crashed.Students fled the bus, many using the back door emergency exit, and onlookers subdued the man until police arrived. (Read the rest here)

WHERE THEY DO THAT AT?!?!! As if Atlanta needs news like this. Between Real Housewives of Atlanta (Broke Broads of Bankhead), Tiny & Toya, Frankie & Neffie, Whatspoppin.net club pics and this - I have no words. Atlanta is exuding pure, unadulterated f--kery. But hey, guess the wheels of the bus go round and round. A-T-L hoe!

HONESTY BOX

After recently returning to Facebook, I became reacquainted with Honesty Box. If you're not familiar, it's a way for people to tell you whatever they think about you (good, bad or indifferent) anonymously. When it first rolled out, it was pretty popular. Now most people have the "Eff that. They better say it to my face" mentality. I think it's hilarious b/c people tend to say very crazy, no holds barred statements. Most of my responses have been straight comedy and after reading over them a couple days ago, I figured I'd share a few with the masses. I'm so personal! Oh, if whoever wrote some of these things is reading this, just know I've been entertained.

1. "Would u be offended if I liked it so much I would splurge and put an onion ring on it? Every kiss begins with BK."
2. "Weird, sexy and funny... that's all I can say without digging into my id and offending you... LOL"
3. "Girl, you soo fine...I drink yo piss!!!!!"
4. "You're very sexy. The problem is you are aware of it, and probably have your bar set so high that brother would have to be Nelson Madela combined with Shemar Moore to have a chance. Its a shame I'm Malcom X combined with Morris Chestnut. A guy can only hope.... hopefully u have a sister whose bar is set just a lil lower."
5. "Has changed a lot since high school!"
6. "If yung berg saw you he wouldn't have said what he said about ladies with a darker skin tone. u da besttttt"

Gotta love it. LOL

IT WAS ALL GOOD JUST A [YEAR] AGO

I ran across this pic today and for a brief moment (1.4 seconds) got the sads. I thought these were great couples. Both had been together for years; one engaged, one married and now they're both non-existent. Makes my little piece meal 'relationships' look like child's play. Just serves as a reminder that not everything will last. My homegirl hit me with a crazy, but realistic statistic. Approximately 97% of the relationships we get in will fail. That is, if the ultimate goal is to be in a monogamous relationship. Wild, huh? Sh1t happens - so live, learn and keep it moving. In the words of Gucci, "Girls/[Guys] are like buses, miss one, next 15 one comin!"

COCO CHANEL QUOTES

...can almost sum up my existence.

“A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future.”

“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

“The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”

"You live but once - you might as well be amusing."

BREAK-UP TO MAKE-UP



On my shopping adventures this weekend, there were several people going lady gaga over my make-up. Decided to do a vid of exactly what I did and used. Nothing spectacular, but it looks pretty decent if I say so myself.

YOU CAN DO IT TOO

ST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) -- Michael and Steven Roberts didn't have two quarters to rub together a couple of decades ago. Now, the two African-American business leaders estimate their holdings -- from hotels to TV stations -- are worth $1 billion. One St. Louis hotel they own once barred black people. "Black folks need legacy. We have to have examples of successes in order for us to be able to let the generations to come know that many of the successes that occurred by African-Americans in this country can be seen and pointed out and can be emulated," says Michael Roberts, the chairman and CEO of The Roberts Companies.
"We tell folks, learn it, get your hands dirty -- you know, a little sweat equity," says Steven Roberts, the president of The Roberts Companies. "For that college student, for that future entrepreneur ... we're saying understand what your passion is, and understand what your product is, too."

I love reading stories that inspire me to step my game up. Sometimes people have the tendency to be jealous when they see others doing well. There are even times when people wish ill on others, hoping to see them fail. I challenge everyone to look to these successful people as a benchmark. Allow people more successful than yourself to be YOUR motivation. I know I do.

Tried on some clothes; loved this dress, but I heard it's pretty popular. Turn off.

Went to go buy this jacket/blazer. Printed out a $30 coupon and all...

Then I found this one...for $6.99. Haha! $6.99 > $98.00

Speaking of blazers, picked up a pair. 

Saw 'Taken'. Yo, if you haven't already, check this movie out!! Great action film.

SERIOUSLY?


COVINGTON, La. - St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain says deputies are looking for two men who stole more than $1 million in jewelry and other goods from the J.C. Penney in Covington late Saturday night. Strain said the thieves are sophisticated in their methods, entering the buildings through the rooftops and lowering themselves into the stores with ropes. (Read rest of story here)

Riddle me this Batman. Since when does JC Penney have a million dollars worth of jewelry in their store? Better yet, since when does JC Penney have a million dollars worth of merchandise PERIOD!? And of all places to steal jewelry from, they chose JC Penney? Haha! The best part of the story though is the fact that they went all 'Mission Impossible' and entered from the roof via ropes. Where they do that at?! THEN one of them had the nerve to dress like a Teenage Mutant Ninja turtle carrying Splinter's stick. OFF.THE.CHAIN. If you live in Louisiana, better hit up the streets and the flea market. It's gonna be poppin!

MAKE NEW FRIENDS, BUT KEEP THE OLD


OH EM GEE. I was rearranging some things in my apartment and I came across this Voyages poetry book that my 8th grade class made (pictures via 6th grade yearbook) in 1997. L-M-F-A-O! If you can try to read this you might just pass out. Pure comedy. We were bad broads back in 97' talkin bout goin to Vegas and sneaking off to an Embassy Suites (b/c we're too fly for a roach motel). Ha! Thank God for time, maturity and hair stylists b/c we've come a looooong way. Tasha, myself (that's me in the middle) and Eve have been down since "back in el-e-men-ta-ryyyy" (c)Tupac. We used to have sleep overs, make up dance routines, write rhymes, hell - we even wrote a rough draft letter to Ricki Lake to meet Mista. [GO RICKI, GO RICKI, GO RICKI!]. We'd all try to schedule our classes together and I think one year Tasha and I had EVERY single class together except one. We even went to Europe at the same time. Eve and I bought matching butterfly shirts to dance at Mayday. Yeah, we were doing the butterfly. How clever is that sh1t?! Although we all meet new friends and have different people come in and out of our lives, it's nice to have people in your life that you can resurrect 10+ yr old memories with. It's a blessing to know there are people besides your family that truly have your back and only wish the best for you. I could go on for hours talking about the coded letters that were written, the crushes, the scheming, the EXCELS trips haha...but all in all, I am thankful for all my friends, but especially the 2 that have been around for...like...ever. My BFFs!

EFFIN HILARIOUS


On a whim I went to the thrift store today. Only like my second time going to one since I usually don't have the patience to sift. This time I found a couple things I thought I could make work, but I was a little skeptical. I actually put a couple items back. Anyway, I got to the register and after the lady finished ringing me up she looked at me and said "That'll be $5.45". Huh?! Five dollars? Like seriously?! LMAO!! I paid more for my lunch! Right then and there I fell in love with thrift stores. I got a gold blouse, diagonal striped tank, fly gold belt (the pic does not do it justice) and a freakum dress for the price of a footlong (Subway I see you). WTH? Haha. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

MISSION 1 - IMA PUT THIS ON

In a previous post I decided to attempt a DIY project involving clothing. Well, I settled on a skirt and some earrings to start off easy. Skirt is def not finished (too short), but all in all I'm gonna go ahead and stamp this one a success. I went a little overboard with buying fabric, but hey...I have visions.

For some odd reason, I just had the strongest craving for those pink sugar wafers. WTH? I haven't seen or eaten these things in years. No, I'm not pregnant for all the smart @sses out there. Speaking of random food/candy - I saw ring pops at the gas station the other day. You know I bought a couple. It will become a fashion accessory.

WHY NOT



I've always been the type of person who comes up with ideas for specific things, whether it be clothing, artwork, room layouts, etc. This makes life a little difficult b/c very rarely do I find anything in stores to match the images in my head. When it comes to clothing and I do find something close enough, thousands of other people will have the same thing. That bothers me. Wearing the same dress/outfit as someone else on the same night is probably, in my opinion, a defining fail whale moment. So I got to thinking. I spend most of my money on accessories, shoes, etc and that's not going to change. My actual clothing is another story. Maybe I should join the DIY club. I've dabbled in a couple things, but haven't really done anything too seriously. I'm also one of those people that believes you can do anything if you put enough effort into it. I stopped by the fabric store today....this should be interesting. BTW, it'll be hilarious if my first creation is hideous.

Go go gadget seamstress.

BRING BACK NEW JACK!



From Teddy Riley to Tony, Toni, Tone, the era of New Jack Swing still brings a smile to my face. Something reminded me of this song and when I watched it on Youtube all I could do was laugh. OMG - I loved this song. This ranks right up there with "Groove Me" and "It Feels Good". Damn I love the 80s and early 90s. Viva la New Jack Swing. GET WITH THE PROGRAM!

HEARD IT ALL BEFORE


Marriage eludes high-achieving black women
Many remain single and childless, according to new research

Yale researchers Natalie Nitsche and Hannah Brueckner argued that “marriage chances for highly educated black women have declined over time relative to white women.” Women of both races with postgraduate educations “face particularly hard choices between career and motherhood,” they said, “but especially in the absence of a reliable partner.”
And there’s the rub. As noted in a recent Sexploration column, contrary to old media reports, most educated, professional women who want to marry can and do marry. But the picture is less bright for high-achieving black women because “marriage markets” for them have deteriorated to the point that many remain unmarried, the researchers found. Since these women also feel pressured not to become single mothers, they often go childless as well, the researchers found.
Read the rest here

I'll comment on this later, but I mean, tell me something that I DON'T know. I'm starting to wonder if all this media attention on this subject could be a subconscious self fullfilling prophecy. Like do people see this and say oh, according to this study I'm not going to get married. So they don't...because they don't think they will. In the words of Decartes, "I think therefore I am". LOL @ me saying "they" like I'm not one of the women they are referring to.

ME GUSTA

I think these are pretty dope. The 'Puffy Chain' by Phenomenon is basically a soft gucci-link type necklace. The perfect "look at me" accessory LOL. Although I think it's overpriced (approx $113.00) for a FABRIC necklace, it's still pretty tight. Might look for an alternative. It's not about the price, its the pleasure principle!

P.S. Don't judge me if you happen to see a pic of me wearing this. Thx.

AWESOME...I THINK

My sister decided to look up what song was #1 on the charts the day she was born. Ironically (she is the youngest), it was 'Save the Best For Last'. Whatever. I figured I'd follow suit. Well everybody knows MJ RAN the 80s so naturally when I searched my date of birth, the number #1 song was 'Billie Jean'. Hell yeah! Michael was the man. But he's saying the kid isn't his. I am more brown than everyone in my family. Uhhh, yeah. :-\

LOL, j/k. My conclusion is that on my date of birth the #1 entertainer in the world was #1 on the charts therefore that makes me #1.

TOO HOT FOR TV



The title of Da Band's first AND ONLY album explains a lot for me. Sarah Stokes, who if you don't remember, was the only singer in one of Diddy's Making the Band failures groups entitled 'Da Band'. How creative. Anywho, the songbird was arrested for domestic abuse for apparently stabbing up her husband. I guess Choppa taught her a thing or two YA HURD!? But check out her lawyers statement:

“Sara and Tony have a very passionate and loving relationship that on August 2, while having an evening of fun, she slipped and fell, hitting her head heavily on the ground and somehow in the process of helping her Tony got injured.”

Huh? Evening of fun? Involving a knife? I swear these lawyers are straight comedy. The last time I saw or heard anything about this chick, she was on Youtube trying to shop a reality show. She might get it now! Last night a random Da Band [that name is so wack] song came on my ipod. Must've been a sign.

I'm sure Barrington Levy has been rocking this shirt since 2001. Anyway, Shyne will be released from jail soon. October 6th to be exact. I never understood why people feel the need to make "Free [insertnamehere]" shirts for everybody that goes to jail. I mean, a "Free TI" shirt? WTF? He pleaded guilty! Anyway, I wonder what this means for Shyne. I wonder what this means for Diddy...lol. I think it's common knowledge Shyne got the short end of the stick thanks to Mr. Take that, Take that himself. Guess time will tell. Keep ya head up Barrington! You'll be back in the spotlight in no time! WHOOOAAAAAA!

AMBUSH




I'm always looking out for unique accessories and in my quest I came across the Japanese brand Ambush a couple months ago. It took me forever to actually find the brand, but now that I have, I figured I'd share for those that haven't seen or heard of it before. It was started by a member of the J-hop group Teriyaki Boyz and has been seen on several American celebrities. The chains/rings range in price from ¥12,390-¥17,640. These accessories are HARD to come by, but I WILL get my hands on something. (Season 3 is wack IMO)

She is the wonderful being that brought great hits such as "Giving You the Benefit", "Mercedes Boy" and the above gem "Girlfriend".
