Gorgeous Ponderings...

Thursday, June 24, 2010


1. I’m seriously considering going to see the 3rd Twilight at the theater. I saw the first two on DVD and I think I just might enjoy a big screen viewing.

2. It’s been confirmed that "The Game" a show that use to be on the CW is coming back to the small screen with new episodes on *gasp* BET this fall. I’ll be watching!

3. I wash my combs, brushes and scarves weekly when I wash my hair. I know people who NEVER wash theirs. Ewwww.

4. I’m also feeling that show "Treme" on HBO. It’s about the lives of people in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. It’s a good show and the music is good. The season finale was this past Sunday. You can catch the whole series in OnDemand on cable.

5. I got swept up in the cupcake craze. I freakin love cupcakes. All these snacks are derailing my healthy eating. This one shop here in the Bay has this vanilla on vanilla that is beyond good.

6. I can only buy food at the grocery store. I can’t buy food from a 99 cent or Dollar store or other discount food outlets. It’s creepy to me. Where did that food come from? How old is it? Did they change the dates? I can’t!!!!! I will however purchase a name brand non food product and think it’s the deal of the century. Go Figure!

7. I can NOT stand a liar. You would be surprised at how often random people lie to you. I really started watching “Lie to Me” to pick up more tips on detecting when someone is lying. That stuff really works. I mean REALLY. I asked a former supervisor would she be able to give me a favorable reference when I was leaving a position. She said yes of course but I caught her expression. For a brief moment she went stone faced. I did a test I had a friend call just to see what she would say. Her expression told the truth. Witch! The background to that I went to HR on her because she was doing some foul stuff to me. I thought we got past that and were cool. Wrong. Needless to say she is not on my list of references.

8. I want to hire a maid. I love a clean house, laundry etc. But I loathe cleaning. I believe that I’ll be rich one day or at least very comfortable. On my list is definitely a full time maid! However, on television they always have these beautiful maids umm no ma’m My maid will look like a troll.

9. Those KY commercials are stupid. So a gel can do ALL that?!?

10.  On Tuesday Animal Planet had a one hour special called Michael Jackson and Bubbles. The show explored their special relationship. This is the one year anniversary week of his death and I love Mike but REALLY!?! Bwhahahahahahahahahahahha I can’t.

11. I love chicken wings!!! I eat them so much I may start clucking. Is that so clichéd and black?

12. A few weeks back my EX-boyfriend called me out the blue to tell me he had a sex dream about me. Really?! Fool get outta here with that ish.*side eye* He recently started calling again. I have not answered. To him. If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it Don't be mad once you see that HE want it. If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it. Wha-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…Ha!

I am interviewing 2 cleaning women this weekend. I just can't do it anymore. My time is too precious and they are much cheaper than I thought they would be.

Growing up, we ate chicken at least 5 out of 7 days a week. Go figure - things are the same in my kitchen now. *lol* Cluck, cluck!!

I wish I could hire a maid. I have dirty clothes up to the ceiling!! I am really off my homemaking game.

Oh how do I love chicken wings...Let me count the ways. Definitely one of my favorite things to eat when done correctly. Drums or flats? I am a flats girl.

Tell that dude to step off. That train has passed his station. You lost out sucka!!!

I can relate to too many in this list!

Rolling on the floor laughing @ number 12. Your ex sounds like me calling one of my ex and her singing the same Beyonce song! Too funny.

Y'all women something else.

Treme is good. But it doesn't leave me captivated like Simon's The Wire. We feel the same about food in dollar stores. I cannot do it, either.

Wings gets ripped into on a regular in our kitchen.

@mrstdj You are so lucky!! I feel you girl I canNOT wait to interview for help. It's coming soon.
Yassss! chicken loves it! I can eat it everyday.

@ K.Rock Yes!!! I daydream about coming home to a clean house and laundry. There is a company here called Merrymaids they have a commercial where the lady comes home and lets out a loud whoop cause it's so clean. The maids are still there cleaning her floor in the kitchen and jump up screaming. It's hilarous cause I would do the same thing when I got home.

Girl I'm drums and flats no discrimination here!

Yeah dude is too foul!

GorgeousPuddin said...

@Daji Tsk Tsk Tsk you have to say which ones. ;)

@Don Now see you shoulda did right the first time LOL! I really liked dude but he just wouldNOT act right!

Yep we can be!

More chicken love up in here!! Me likes!

P.S. I love this... said...

1. Me too.. a matinee though. Can't take too many people in the theater. It's just a thing with me.

2. I loved the Game.. Derwin really messed up though. The show just wasn't the same for me after that.. Melanie lost herself for a while and it was sad.

3. LOL.. so true

6. You are sooooo funny but it is creepy. However, I do buy my pre-theatre candy for said matinee, from there though. Can't beat $1 for Charleston Chews!!!

7. Great intuition! That was foul though. What could it hurt her to give you a good reference. Karma baby..

8. You should do it. I have one that comes in twice a month for a deep cleaning. It was waaaay cheaper than I thought it would be. I have an older Spanish woman.. she's so sweet.

11. Girl you have to try chicken wings fried with butter flavored Crisco!!! It's the TRUTH!!

12. Boy Bye!!!

Great post per usual Gorgeous!

GorgeousPuddin said...

@P.S Most surely a matinee. I love a bargain and less people too!

2. I agree. In their effort to be more edgy the show was too much drama!

7. Right!! I said the same thing.Get back at me another way. Don't pretend were cool when were not then try to affect my livelihood. But wait there's more why was this lady 70 years old acting like that?????? She refused to retire. You actually wouldn't know cause she was like Essence mag 70 but still...She shocked me.

8. I like the deep cleaning idea. I did some pricing and it's not as expensive as I thought hmmm...

11. Mmmm That sounds yummy. I will try it!

12. LOL! @boy bye!
