Catch Me At Spring Bling...


You Know That's Not My Car...

It's 8:37 p.m. and my brain's fried.

I've been up since 7 and working since approximately 9...a.m. that is. I'm currently in West Palm Beach, FL covering BET's Spring Bling. They have me blogging live, so it's quite hectic. I have to get content and immediately run back to the production office, so I can update photos and keep it as current as possible.

It's fun so far. It's challenging, but fun. If you get a minute, check out the play-by-play on BET.com. [Click Here To Read Spring Bling Live Blog] If you need a laugh, peep my mug on the BET.com multiflash. I have no reason to say the following, but since it's a pattern, I'll do it anyway. Speak on it!

I Wanna Buy Some Chocolate Too...



Chocolate...

So I'm at LAX on standby for a flight to New York, when I peep this little Asian girl selling chocolate.

"Ehhh, we're selling some chocolate. Bla bla, bla," she tells this clean cut white dude sitting in front of me.

She got the sale and then moved on to new targets, me excluded. I was hungry, so I would have copped off her, but you know me. I refused to buy anything unless she asked me like everybody else.

The funny thing is I saw her looking at people, me included, trying to predict whether or not they would cop. I even peeped her mom telling her to go ask me, but the kid was hesitant. So just when I got my ass up to go cop me a Baby Ruth at Hudson News, I hear...

"Excuse me, do you want some chocolate?"

Yep! I got me one of them crispy ones. See, I'm not gonna pull any type of card here. I want you guys to tell me why you think the little girl was so hesitant to come over. Happy Easter! Speak on it!

How Is 2008 So Far?

Hard to believe we're almost in the second quarter of the year already.

We'll be watching the Olympics in no time. In one of my later posts last year, I discussed slowing down on the drinking. Well, I'm doing pretty well on that front. Some of you may have seen me skip the open bar several times and I didn't even go out until February.

Around that time, a friend a mine asked me how my year was going so far and I couldn't produce an answer. What a difference a month makes. I've trimmed down to a lean 185 lbs from a chunky 200-plus and work is going great. I've already been to D.C. and St. Louis for the first time and I'm hoping on a plane to New Orleans in the morning. God willing I'll be able to maintain throughout the calendar. But what about you guys? How has it been so far? Speak on it!

Clean Cut Vs. Scruffy!

When I was about 14,15, me and my boys used to talk about having a goatee all the time. We couldn't wait to have one.

The funny thing is that now that I have facial hair, I hardly sport one. I have two looks, the full beard and the chinstrap. I love both (depending on the mood) and usually go back and forth between the two looks.

But I'm curious to see what you guys think? See, I've been sporting a full beard for over a month now (longest stretch ever). Earlier at work today, one of my co-workers pointed out my beard and told me she'd never let her man grow one. This girl I used to date also told me a guy should always go on date clean shaven.

The funny thing is I was scruffy as hell when I met her, not even lined up. Actually, if I backtrack, it just seems like I've gotten attention from the baddest chicks when scruffy. Joy Bryant, (I have witnesses) was just giving me all kinds of rhythm on a scruffy day. I've also been hearing
more and more girls say the scruff is "sexy."

So ladies, do your prefer your men scruffy or clean cut? And fellers, what do you usually go for? Speak on it!

Pleeeaassssseee...Tell Me If I Have A Booger!

I've always been obsessed with clean nostrils.

I obviously check the shnozz everday before leaving the crib, but also occasionally check my iPod screen on the train for good measure.

My sister Val is equally obsessed with the boogie monsters. There was a time when we took pride in telling each other, "ha, you got something in your nose." But my sis will tell you, I was rarely caught slipping.

It's been a different story for everything else as of late though. In the past month, I've gone to the bathroom a few times only to find donut glaze hanging on the side of my lip, or dry patch of skin on my cheek begging to be moisturized. Cool! But I remember uncovering those after convos with people.

It must have been karma though, because I never tell people when they have boogers or spaghetti strings hanging from their chin. This girl recently got mad at me, because I didn't tell her about hers. I just kept staring at it, but couldn't bring myself to say anything.

Soooooooooo, what's your booger policy? Do you tell, or keep it to yourself. Well, if have one, please tell me. From now on, I'll do the same. Speak on it!

Lazy Co-Workers Anyone?

So I've been working on a few projects with this new guy at work these
past couple of days, and I must say, he's hilarious.

I wish I could share a few quotes with you guys, but I think his delivery is what makes him so funny. Although he did call somebody a "tight wad." I don't recall hearing that one before.

So earlier today, we're in the editing room and the phone rings. Dude picks up, and then angrily hangs up a few seconds later. "What a lazy human being," he said. LOL I think I laughed for five minutes. Then this other dude chimed in, "we got one of those in every department." Chuch!

This topic comes at the right time, because I'm halfway through the heaviest week to date at my semi new job. So go ahead and vent about them lazy bums. Speak on it!

Snapple W/O Straws= Yukkie!


Snapple...

I don't know what it is, but I just can't drink snapple without a straw. It just doesn't taste the same.

I grab two straws everytime. Why? One time, the straw was chipped, and I wasn't able to drink properly.

So recently, I hit the Deli up on the corner close to my job, order a roast beef sandwich, a fruit punch snapple (is there even any other flavor?) and two straws. By the way, fruit punch seems like the only flavor stores seem to run out of, but that's a different blog entry. Anyway, the straws must have fell out of my pocket or something, because by the time I got back to my desk, they were nowhere to be found. You've guessed it. I had to drink it straight from the bottle. It tasted like freaking sand. A friend of mine recently told me she noticed the same thing. What about you guys? And while we're on it feel free to share your favorite Snapple flavor. Speak on it!

This Chick Told Me, "I Know Penis!"

Some of you may recall my "Why You Touching Me, Son" entry. In it, I addressed touchy-feely dudes and joked that I wouldn't mind if a random cute chick rested her hand on my Dick Johnson. I kid, I kid.

The funny thing is, that exact scenario happened a few Fridays back. So, I'm at this spot and get introduced to this girl (cute and drunk in case you're wondering) and she hugs me and immediately reaches for my privates. My boy Ryan thought I was lying when I told him.

Shocked, I backed off and asked, "you always greet guys by grabbing their joint?" "Yes," she replied. "I know penis." She then went on about how she can tell the size of any man's penis. I won't go into details, but she actually wasn't that far off. LOL

Fellers, has anybody ever been that forward with you? Ladies, I know you get your asses grabbed by some douches every now and then, but has a man ever went straight for your crotch? Speak on it!
