Monday Night Musings

Monday Night!


The time has been turnt back, and it is raining cats and dogs and frogs in the ATL.

All during rush hour, no less. Wow.

And what's interesting is that I didn't even go to work today. I had trouble sleeping last night due to not feeling well, so I just called off. No big deal. At least I didn't have to get out in the rain. The most I did today was take out all the trash. And that was this evening and the rain had tapered off a bit.

I also made some cookies tonight. My goal is to make cookies for everyone in my cubicle area. If I can remember their birthday. Lady M had a birthday last week, but she took off. So I will carry her's in tomorrow. She likes oatmeal cranberry. That's easy to remember.

Anyway, I had the bomb Halloween. All ten of the trick-or-treaters that came to my door were VERY happy. Why? Because I had the excellent treats.

Whole candy bars. Packs of cookies. And chips, chips, chips.

To the point that a couple of teenagers rolled up on me. I think they were chaperoning a crew of kids up my street. And they were bouncing a basketball, which was getting on my nerves.

They were the last to come to my door. I let them get what they wanted.

I wanted to add... "Could ya'll please stop bouncing that dayum basketball?"


Alas, I did not.

I left that alone. I live in the hood. Let's just say I left that be. I did not need any problems, even though they were very nice young men.

I had a quiet weekend. It was raining, and I stuck around the house. I didn't need anything, and I needed to catch up on my chores and reading.

Now, there was a special episode surrounding suicide last week of Being Mary Jane. I wanted to watch it, as a journalist will be discussing it on talk show I like this week. He had experienced some of the same problems as on the show, and it left me a bit O_o, because this person is so well accomplished. How could he think of suicide? So I wanted to go watch this show. I've never watched it in the past, as I am not a fan of Gabrielle Union. I watched it, and it was great. I didn't know any of the characters, so I decided to snoop around on my Hulu and Netflix to see if old seasons were available, and they were.

That is a GREAT series. I don't know, I never care for any show where there's a black woman who seemingly has everything, except a man, so therefore her life is NOTHING. Who needs that? Such a cliche. But I thought it was well written, that first season anyway. I am halfway through the second season, and it's pretty good. I may try to catch up before the next current episode comes on. If I don't, they cost $1.99 a piece on my Amazon prime. Sigh.  I  bought that one episode on suicide, but I don't care purchase anymore.

I don't know what I have on tap for the week. I hope to see some sunshine. Just a little. Please and thank you.

Song of the week.  "Optimistic" by Sounds of Blackness.

A good positive song. We need more of those.

That's it on this Monday night. I must get up at the crack of dawn and show my face at work. I'm still not sleepy. I will pop some zzzquil on something.

So I can sleep hard... on purpose.



  1. I think BMJ is a great show! They deal with real issues.. both work and family related. As far as her dating life goes... There are alot of women who can identify with at least some of her problems. Sometimes she makes be sick bc of her response to situations even though I can identify with her issues. I hope that makes sense.

    Oh and I love Sounds of Blackness!

  2. Yes maam you are missing out if you dont watch BMJ! And yes the suicide episode was very good. I fell out when she up and announced that her friend had been molested. It wasn't appropriate but yet it was very appropriate, and so Mary Jane! That episode had a very good message.

  3. I love the show BMJ! I agree with the two previous comments about the show. The current season is going to take months before it is uploaded to Netflix. Season 2 was just uploaded maybe two months ago. And this current season is three episodes in. So you get the point, Netflix is SLOW/LATE putting up new seasons.


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