Freestyle Friday




This has been a good short week. Thank goodness for that.

I have been irking my boss this week. I have wailed much and ask to be sent home because of the fall I had last Sunday. I thought it would be better if I could just sit at home with my feet elevated whilst watching my favorite shows.

She told me to go elevate my feet at my desk. HUMPH.

She kicked me out of her office, told me to go talk to the director. I did. And the director laughed. Heartily. Especially when I said I should go home on some administrative or special disability leave.

Let's just say I have been working full 8 hour days. Full. 

I am healing up okay but I am a bit irritated at fooling with these bandages on my knee. I was doing well til this morning. I left my saline, witch hazel and extra bandages at home. I might have to run home and change this bandage and come back. It is nice to live 4.6 miles from the workplace. But I best not sit down and turn on that television. That's gonna be a... problem. Indeed.

Overall, this is a high class problem. And I have learned to appreciate high class problems for what they are.

And ya'll are starting to crank it up on the current LadyLee Sweepstakes. If you don't already know, you better ask somebody.

Or go read this post. There are two, possibly three $99 gift cards up for grabs. You better strategize.  And then you better go back and optimize that strategy.

You can buy plenty packs of panties at the Wal-mart for that... and some groceries too. And around these parts, some of our Wal-marts have the gas stations. You can buy plenty gasoline with $99.

I already see some good strategies shaping up.  You better git your money, honey. Really though.

This is a long lazy sweepstakes. It goes until August 13th, my 9th blog anniversary. There will be lots of 

I am looking forward to my weekend. I want to see this movie.

I'm trying to be up in some IMAX 3D place to see that one. I liked the prequel to this. I hope it's not cheesy. We will see.

That's about it... A few other randoms.

Quote of the Week. 

"Be who you are and quit trying to look and act like people think you should act."- Joe Samuel Ratliff

Mmm-hmm.  I read that last night just before drifting off to sleep. I woke up thinking about it.

I will just let that one marinate.

Picture of the Week. This one speaks for itself. Yes, it does.

Every sister remembers those days.  Sitting on the floor between Mama's legs.  The blue grease. The container where we kept our bows and barrettes.

The hair being snatched and gathered up all hard.

It's amazing how one picture brings back so many memories. I think I even had a shirt like that.

I would love that for my wall at home. I really would. 

Song of the Week. "Waiting" by Madonna.

Now that's off the Erotica album, which I happened to like way back when, some 22 years ago. It was a bit out there, but I like concept albums. This isn't my favorite song on the CD, but it has one of my favorite spoken word preambles:

Well I know from experience...
That if you have to ask for something more than once or twice
It wasn't yours in the first place

And it's hard to accept when you love someone
And you like to believe
In their moment of need
That they want what you want
And they don't

She ain't no Jill Scott, but that verse has always stuck with me. All these years. I know what it's like to feel that way.

One of Madonna's less ratchet moments. Thank goodness for that.

That is all for me. I am looking forward to the weekend.

Because it's going to be a good one. On purpose. 


  1. I have to carve out some time to see the Planet of the Apes movie. I loved the first one. My son saw it last night -- he always goes to the pre-showings. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. I liked the prequel...Ceasar was something else...

    1. This one had a LOT going on. But good.

  3. I have never wanted to see a Planet of the Apes movie but this one looks good. Sadly told the boy that I will take him to see Earth to Echo next week so we will be seeing that.

  4. I forgot to add this since my first draft of my comment was deleted :)
    I love that picture. I have memories of my mother combing my ears and big forehead as she combed my hair with no cares to my comfort. LOL. And do not let me get started on the straightening comb.

  5. Um....I hope I see you Saturday at noon. FFF activate!!!

  6. Lol at the panties comments

  7. I want that picture of the mommy yanking the girl's head. And I love the little girl's facial expression.

    I'm more a fan of Madonna' raunchy songs. Lol. But Take A Bow is one of my favorites by her.

    1. Madonna is so ratchet. Maybe she is getting better now that she is in her 50s.

      I want to post my favorite song, but it's too raunchy. This is a PG blog. I may post the instrumental.

  8. I really enjoyed Planet of the Apes...LOVED the first one and was pleased. I paid EXTRA for the 3D and wasn't mad. I never pay extra. I sneak in. I am proud of this. :)

    I have more memories of my Dad doing my hair than my mom!

  9. On 2 occasions, I had to buy panties at Walmart. Both times I forgot to pack panties on a beach trip. I guess my subconscious wants me to only wear my bathing suit LOL.


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