I was going to write about Stacy Dash and other like mind thinkers. I was going to add my half a cent about the Grammy’s since no one gives a damn what I think on that matter one way or another. I never watch the Grammy’s I never know 3/4ths of the movies nominated or the winners so I don’t really care. Honestly I still don’t. Black Hollywood shouldn’t care either. The blacks in the movie industry get paid and will continue to get paid because the bottom line is the number of zeros on the check.
The Grammy’s slighting of blacks is not new. What’s new is Hollywood black elite is angry that they weren’t really included in white Hollywood. I think they were under the illusion that they mattered. The rude awaking is that they realize they aren’t any more important than the black stage hands…

First Post Of January../Mi Primero Entrada De Enero

Hello!! I’m a bit slow this month, but you can’t blame me a little as quite a few things have happened in the past few weeks… One of them was, that I turned 30!!!! Time to ‘tun up!'(Jamaican term for have a good time!) There’s still plenty of time to tun up, and I’ll be doing so throughout the year!

So, now, I’m officially ancient!! Alright, perhaps not ancient.. Hahahaaaaaaa! But, now I can’t claim that I’m too young to not know any better, when I make a mistake!! Heee  heee! Well… I’ll still try! Heheee!

I had to think up yet another recipe, amongst dramas with health(Luckily not mine! But still scary! Caring for a sick parent has its moments.), and day to day life. But being me, I still cope!

So, now I have a few new recipes, and new bling jewellery…

As well as a birthday hairstyle!
