Friday Freestyles.

My goodness.




GLORY again!

And can you believe it is March already? 16% of the year is gone. Soon we will be hollering "Merry Christmas!" LOL

March means spring to me. I am wondering why it is so doggone cold outside. It's 40 degrees and the wind is whipping something awful. And if it's not cold, it's raining. I am waiting for the March Sun. That is all.

And this is the doom and gloom day... Sequestration starts today. I am a government employee, and we have gotten very vague emails.  But you know what? I refuse to worry about it. Congress ain't worried about. I won't worry about it either. I am going to be happy. Period. And have a good day. Humph.

I haven't been in the mood to post much this week. Why? Because I want to do a lot of Food for thought posts. I need to leave that alone right now. I've been a bit too busy this week, more than normal. So I need to save that for later.

Crafts and Cookies. Anyway, I wanted to post up some cards I made.

That one is for Southern Black Gal. She won the birthday sweepstakes. Too bad I spelled her name
 wrong. :(

Here's another for one of my favorite readers!

Thank goodness I spelled her name right.

I owed her a tin of cookies. So I made some chocolate chip pecan cookies for her.

That was fun. I made the cards one morning before work. For some reason, it was therapeutic. I was VERY calm when I arrived at work that day, even happy. I have to do that more often.

Spell Well. So, something interesting happened in one of my cubicle mate Cowgirl Cre's WWF game.

Yes. My cubicle mate, the Cowgirl Cre beat the great WWF wordsmith expert Tayari Jones in a game. This doesn't happen. We had to snap a picture of the score to prove it happened.

Ya'll just don't understand... Tayari can REALLY spell very well. It is a time of celebration when she gets beat. Cre had been sitting there in her cubicle, all wide-eyed, showing me the score in the final moves.

"Girl, if you beat her, I'll call her. I sure will. I will call right up. And we'll talk to her!"

So Cre beat her. I thought that chick was gonna turn cartwheels. And I dialed Tayari up. She didn't answer, but she called right back. She is on tour right now (I can't keep up with her. Sigh). Goodness, we talked to her. You would've thought we'd won the lotto or something.

Cre was so happy that she went out for lunch instead of eating the sandwich she made for lunch.

Yes. We are nerdy, I know. But Cre found out that she too could spell well! LOL.

Movie of the Week. Limitless staring Bradley Cooper and Robert deNiro.

This movie is the BOMB. It appeals to the Dr. LadyLee side of me. I wish I would've seen it at the movies instead of on my kindle. But it is always good to find something decent on Netflix!

I'm not going to review it. It's about a little pill that, when you take it, your mental capacity becomes limitless.

If I could invent a pill like that... wow!

Great movie. Had me on the edge of sofa! And that Bradley Cooper is gorgeous! I never knew what all the fuss over him was about, but I'm a fan now. Wow!

Check that out!

Song of the Week. I REALLY like this song. I know it has to be close to 30 years old, but I heard it for the first time last month.

You are my Sunshine by Mtume.

Man. I really like that song. Yeah, I know I'm 30 years late, but that's all right. Still a good song.

That's it for Friday Freestyles. I don't have much planned for the weekend. I'm sort of trying to take it easy, since I am having some back problems. I hope to get out on Saturday, though. Pam needs an oil change, a headlight and some new windshield wipers. (Ain't nothing worse than driving in pouring down rain and the wiper is half off. Sigh). That will be my adventure for the weekend. Otherwise, I'm going to try to relax and take it easy... on purpose.

You have a good weekend!


  1. First time hearing that song. And that beat has been recycled.

    So I wasn't the only one looking for a little warmth today. Yes I expected it to be warm on the first day of March. lol

    1. I'm not surprised at the recycling. It is easier to sample than to come up with original music. Sigh.

      i don't like this weather. Snowed on Sunday, but it didn't stick! I need you to keep that type of thing out there with you in Lil' Rock!!

  2. man YOU can spell lol
    That movie was THE BOMB

    1. I do not spell well, Mama. And I read slow like Celie...

      That movie was great! I bought that one for my kindle!

  3. LAWD, this was my song! Now, I have to go on Amazon and buy it! I think I still have the

    1. I don't remember that song. Did it ever come out. All I remember is "Juicy Fruit" and "You, Me and He". Did that song even come out?

      Time to throw the cassette tapes away, honey. It's time.

  4. If you enjoyed Limitless you'll probably also like Silver Linings Playbook also with Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro. It was soooo good.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
