I am ALWAYS doing b(earth)day (February 16th) is no acception! This year it was nationally recognized...I mean banks, schools and post offices all over the country were shut down for the GOOD GIRL's 29th Biological New Year! Ok maybe President's Day had a little something to do with it, but I like my version better...all hail the MYLF!
(getting my "Kanye" on)

This year, it was a little harder to plan an Annual Uterine Emancipation Celebration because the Saturday before my birthday was Valentine's Day...or Single's Awareness Day for those of us who ain't got nobody to cake with that I pushed my party back to February 21, 2009 adn celebrated in conjunction with PlayDate Dallas! It's a cool ass event that happens monthly in several major markets (Houston, Atlanta, etc) and this was my first time! They had lifesize Jenga, a Wii, Hungry Hippos, UNO, Connect Four, and even an itty bitty pool table...

and for those party people who don't enjoy throwback boardgames...there was Twister, a hoola hoop contest, and musical chairs...(I got second place)
Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

my favorite part was the SIMON SEZ segment of the evening...SIMON had us doing everything from hunching the floor (yes I typed "hunching") to mean mugging the audience to doing little dance routines...and THEN to separate the SIMONs from the SEZers...SIMON SED..."it's time for the perculator!"


do you see me at the top?? do you?? GOTDAMN! and the rest is history...ALL HAIL the PlayDate Dallas SIMON SEZ CHAMP!! lol...
there is also a DJ...(ya'll KNOW I was loving that!!!)

and a BAR!

you just can't go wrong with a PlayDate!! After we left the event, we went to IHOP for cake! Read it!

If you didn't know, now you know! Now watch me blow it!

I had the WHOLE place singing me "Happy Birthday" and I was selling cake for a dollar...WHAT?! We are in a recession! I had a GREAT TIME and I would like to send speacial shouts out to my LOCAL BFF's:

and T(dot)MARTIN

with an honorable mention to my LONG DISTANCE BFF's


AND to my eFriends LUVVIE and ALISE for the bee-day-blog-love!

Thanks for your support...I STAN YOU ALL!

Lately, I have been spitting all around the DFW metroplex at different events and I was hired to spit at a private birthday party on Saturday, February 7, 2009 and an AMAZINGLY RANDOM BLESSING occurred! As it turns out, the focal point of this Annual Uterine Emancipation Celebration owns a collection agency that just happens to have an account in my name on their books...I had NO CLUE about this AWESOME twist of fate when I agreed to the gig. There were a few spoken word artists there to share their art in praise of the greatness that was the birthday boy...He looked like a Muslim w/ iiinidan in his family so for the sake of entertainment and the fact that I don't really want to put his gubmint name on blast like that...I will call him...HOTSALAMIBACON The event was BEAUTIFUL! His employees were wishing him birthday love and telling everyone what a good and decent man he is...even the spouses of his employees were almost in tears when wishing him many more to come! It was an honor to be participant in lifting up such a thoughtful and giving man! Giving him his flowers while he's still living kind of thing! He really is the change he wants to be in the world!! AWESOME I SAY!! HOTSALAMIBACON came over and thanked me for my contribution to his celebration...we exchanged well wishes and ego strokes and then I said "Since you love my work so much can you have your employees stop calling me?" I was joking...but then he said, "You're pretty, talented, and funny too! Give me your government name and your account number and I'll just write that off!" YAAAAAYYY!!! I was SO EXCITED! I jumped up and gave him a big hug around the neck! GOD IS GOOD!!!

TMI in 3...2...1...The most ironic part of this blessing is that the collection effort was for an eviction that I got when the co-parent was ass-clowning. I am relocating to another major metropolitan area in another state in July and I needed to pay that eviction off anyway so I could look for a new place in my new place w/o any, I had just made a payment arrangements that were supposed to start on 2/16/09 (my b(earth)day) the day before this party! HOW DOPE IS THAT!???! It's like a sign that my move is the right choice for my life and my family right now! It made me happy inside and out...and as for the picture at the top!! I was feeling good...REAL GOOD!! can you blame me?

and oh yeah...I have got to wish a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my eCousin, WuDaMan!!!

my first (and last) poetry competition


My girl, SHUG AVERY, had a "Love Jones" spoken word competition on 02/04/09 in honor of Valentine's Day (and shit) and she asked me to come out! So I did...I have NEVER competed because most poetic competitions don't have a theme or topic which creates confusion in the audience because you get every topic imaginable! How can you line up poets and gauge their work/talent if it's like comparing apples to pizza to shoe polish...but this one had a topic...Plus, I have been penning some rather romantic type shit here lately and I was excited to be able to get it off my my page and let it fall from my I committed to the show...

Let it be said that I am a very relate-able poetess...I am not a fan of "uber-deep-pseudo-couplets strung together because you look revolutionary doing it" know the kinds of joints that you really can't follow but nod in approval because you don't want other folks to think you're not deep enough to "get it"...NEWSFLASH!!! they probably don't get it either, but want others to think they do..just like you...I prefer to hear stories or thoughts with a beginning, middle and end...maybe something funny...thoughtful...even revolution can be tangible...something I don't need a works cited page to understand...I call that shit "8 page prose" and I am not a fan...(hey that rhymed)

There were so many poets there that I have mad luv and respect for that I was excited about sharing I got there and was schmoozing and boozing with the like minded mortals, the way Goody tends to do, and SHUG told me that there was a brief open mic before the competition, like a warm up. I was hyped cuz I could spit some non-eros mind candy amongst my peers...the others thunk the same thing cuz these cats hit the stage spitting thesis length works on REVOLUTION!!

Then the "competition" began...Now, when you think "Love Jones" set you think ROMANTIC poetry...right?? right?? WRONG!! First of all, we all know that most dudes get into to spoken word for the I was completely expecting some ass-tastic, pantie wetting, booty-calling poetry being released like a good nut from the rose petal covered stage...oh but no! these cats hit the stage and (once again) spit never ending rants about AIDS, OBAMA and BAD ASS KIDS...and I was my surprise, I was the only (feminine) woman competing so I took the opportunity to follow directions and spit on topic...the "L" word...not LOVE, but some real hard LIKE... At this point, I was poetically intimidated because serving SWEET LOVE in a room that's been fed HOT UPRISING may not be received in the mood it was intended...long story short...I made it to round 2 of the Kee-Kee Shepherd-ing and was ultimately trumped by a dope sister named SHALE that gave us a living metaphor about CANDYLAND and the CANDYMAN (the US and BUSH) ain't make me feel all warm and fuzzy nor lovey and dovey...but it was HOT SHIT, no that's HER)
After that experience...I am 100% SURE (Maury) that poetic competition is like a 3some...seems exciting at first, but in the end it's overrated and too much work!

Be GOOD or Be GOOD AT IT... keep you eyes open for something sweet on the 14th!
