Friday Freestyles


It's Friday!

And it's not payday, and I am still happy.

Just cuz it's Friday, man.

I am sorry that I have not been blogging. I have a TON of things to write about, a TON of pictures, all kinds of stuff, but I've been trying to get myself on some type of schedule this week, where I take care of other business and get some sleep in the process. Seems to be working out well. My house is squeaky clean, to the point where I don't have to clean up all weekend, and I can concentrate on yardwork and other little household projects.

I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is. I need to get in the bed by a certain time, and be sleeping good. I tend to stay up sometimes until one or two in the morning, and by the end of the week, I am drained. So I solved that this week. YAY ME.

It has been quite cold in the ATL all week long, and this weekend is going to be BEAUTIFUL. So I will do my yardwork and get a little exercise done.

Man, what is UP with all this Schwarzenegger mess on the news. Ya'll act like bustas don't cheat on their wives. Now if this was Joe Blow walking down the street, we wouldn't even care. Now when I turn on the news, I gotta hear the details of him and Maria's mess. WOW.

Reminds me of an old quote I posted a few years ago. I can't quite remember it, and I ain't gonna go look for it but it is something like this:

We are intimately interested in the details of other people's lives, but we don't know what's going on with ourselves and our own lives, and if we do, we are not quick to make the necessary corrections.

Something like that.

I think about that every time the sordid details of yet another celebrity's troubles are smeared all over the news. It makes me glad that no one is interested in my messes, and I never have to worry about it all over the place.

We get great joy in seeing that someone's life is worse than our own, huh?

Oh well. The man don't pay my bills. I don't care.

That's all on my mind today. It's about 8 in the morning, and I'm about to get ready for work. I hope to go to church tonight. I like friday evening bible study. Not many people there, extremely laid back. I like that, man! But my main goal is to get outside and cut the grass this weekend. I bought a trimmer, so I have to figure that out. AND I may even stain the front porch, if I'm up to it. We will see...

And besides... didn't you hear? The world is suppose to end on May 21, 2011. Might not get anythang done!!

(Aint' that CRAZY? I don't know about you, but I'm planning my weekend. Not believing what some religious fanatic is hollering. Sorry.)

I have to put up a video or something up... I have been listening to a Jones Girls station on my online radio. Here's a smooth cut from 1981... one I bet you don't know.

Yeah! Bet you never heard that before. And that song is 30 years old. Back then, Egypt brought about thoughts of mystery and romance. Not anymore!

Here are a couple other cuts by them that you may recognize:

Man, I thought that last cut was an Xscape original song. Too good to be true. These current groups know they sample the cheese out of songs. HUMPH.

Oh well, that's it for me. I NEED to post everyday next week, man. BAD. Way too much stuff in draft. Gotta get it out! Gotta get it out!

We'll see.

In the meantime... have a great weekend... on purpose!!!


  1. Ha ha ha! I know the Jones Girls and Nights over Egypt is one of my favorites...and it's played on jazz stations all the time.


  2. I remember Nights Over Egypt. Incognito did a good job remaking that one.

    I remember Who Can I Run To too. LOL. SMH.

    Makes me think about Saturday nights listening to the radio with my aunt or mom.
