Just Ran Across My Mind...

Tough Talk Tuesdays

I'm really thankful for all of the support and positive responses I've received regarding Tough Talk Tuesdays. I've also been getting your emails letting me know Tuesday passed two days ago and that you want your questions answered.

I haven't published Tuesday's vlog because earlier this week I did something stupid that resulted in a very minor head injury. I'm not going to go into detail, but just know that despite a couple of bumps and bruises and the fact that things could've been MUCH worse, I'm fine. I can't change what happened, but I can and will modify my behavior in the future.

With that said, Mr. Jones isn't broadcasting a damn thing with a two square inch piece of gauze taped down just above my eyebrow. No sir! And I'm hoping to hell that this heals completely before April because I'm not trying to meet you bitches looking like a young Anna Mae Bullock.

Tough Talk Tuesdays will begin when I feel comfortable getting in front of a camera.

You Heard It Here First

Because I like to keep your finger on the pulse of what's going on musically around the world, I want you all to meet British R&B artist Estelle Swaray. This is the video for her current single, American Boy featuring Kanye West.

The song is cool. It'd be better if Kanye wasn't involved, but she had to do something to get Americans to listen. I'm not sure if you'll understand what I mean when I say this, but the song (again...sans Kanye) has a very J. Crew feel to it.

Check it out.



I Had A Dream

I dreamed last night that I randomly decided to move from Baltimore to another city. The dream was particularly bizarre because I just stopped everything I was doing, took my savings and just up and moved. It's also weird because I've been quasi-seriously considering this for weeks now.

Sign from above much?

I've Been Feeling This Song For A Minute

I'm usually not into mainstream R&B, but I have to admit that I'm feeling the hell out of "Last Time" by Trey Songz and the video, too. We're all allowed a guilty pleasure or two.



I Really Need To Stop Spending

A friend and I met up downtown for happy hour at Cosmopolitan last night. I went in expecting to buy a drink or two and ended up with four cocktails, calamari and a bleu cheeseburger. What was supposed to be a $20 Wednesday night ended up being a $60 Wednesday night. WTF?!?

I've gotta do a better job at tempering my purchases.

Forever I Love Atlanta

I don't really love the place, but I will admit that Atlanta is a fun little weekend getaway that provides a change of pace from my normal day-to-day. I was just there not too long ago and I'm going back in May during the weekend of my birthday.

I know what you're thinking. You're saying...wait a minute. He just said he needs to temper his spending, yet he's panning trips. Before you get your panties all in a bunch, you should know that I'm forgoing my usual ultra-luxury, 5-star accommodations (ha!) for my buddy's sofa in his midtown apartment.

I think I can swing an economy class plane ticket and a few nights out on the town.

10,000+ Hits

This blog welcomed its 10,000th visitor earlier this week. I don't know exactly who #10,000 was nor do they get a special prize or music or balloons, but I'm really happy that people are coming here to read what I have to say. I have a stat tracker that I check a few times per day because I'm interested in knowing how folks are referred to this site and what they choose to look at while they're here.

I really appreciate everyone who stops by.

Humility731 said...

I so love that Estelle and Kanye song and I think kanye adds necessary flavor to the track. I particularly love that dress...i'm going to throw her a bone and say its Cavalli (Roberto not Just).


Congrats on the 10,000 hits.

When I read this I BUST out laughing about the bruise over your left eye, similar to the way I did when I saw you last Saturday. I still love you !

BuddahDesmond said...

Kudos on the 10,000 hits!

I'm loving Estelle too. I was hooked as soon as I saw the video for "Wait A Minute (Just A Touch)". I believe "American Boy" is number one in the UK this week. I'm still wondering how well she'll catch on in the US market.

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
