Question Of The Day: Should Hillary Bow Out?

As an Obama supporter and someone who desperately wants to see the Republicans out of the White House, I feel like Senator Hills should drop out of the race. I genuinely believe that taking the primary fight all the way to the convention will be to the detriment of the Democrats in the general election.

On the flip side, if I were a Hillary supporter and I had contributed to her campaign, I would probably be loathe to see her quit and would want her to fight it out.

So what say you bloggers? Should we just "chill out" as Bill says?

Remember The Time

Friday, March 28, 2008

Happy Friday bloggers. I don't know how many of you have XM, but if you do, I hope in recent weeks you have had an opportunity to tune in to Channel 63 Thriller. XM is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Thriller and have dedicated an entire station to 24 hours of Michael Jackson related music. It is fantastic. As someone who remembers being in like 2nd grade when the Thriller video premiered on The Movie Channel, owned a Michael Jackson Thriller doll and had a pack of 200 Michael Jackson stickers plastered on her wall, this has been a great trip down memory lane. From PYT to Off the Wall to Human Nature to ABC to Smooth Criminal to the latest remixes, Michael Jackson has been giving us hits for decades. So personal craziness aside, I salute MJ for the countless jams!
12Kyle informed me that it ends on Monday. So if you haven't had a chance to listen this weekend is it!

Ok, so I'm giving birth in about six weeks and am a little confused on one major issue--circumcision. Before becoming pregnant with a son, I never thought twice about circumcision. I just always thought it was something that you should do but never questioned why one would do it. I've been reading a lot of articles criticizing the procedure by describing it as "barbaric" and "medically unnecessary". I asked my daughter's pediatrician about it yesterday and he basically agreed that circumcision is generally unnecessary for most males. The main reason that males are circumcised at birth is so that they "look like everyone else". He also stated that my baby boy will likely receive no pain medication but will nonetheless be OK. I was almost in tears. I asked him, so I'm going to subject my newborn son to pain so that his genitals will not look different? That just seems stupid to me. Of course, my husband was in total agreement with the pediatrician.
Perhaps, I'm overreacting but the thought of subjecting my newborn to unnecessary pain just seems cruel.
Any Thoughts?

Joker of the WEEK Nominations

Congrats to Geraldine Ferraro for her Joker of the Week win last week, and thanks to all of you who voted. This weeks nominees are......

Hillary Clinton - For lying about being under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia with comedian Sinbad and her daughter, and claiming to have "misremembered." How the heck do you misremember running for cover on the tarmac while snipers shot down on you? Give me a break Mrs. Ready on Day One.

Chelsea Clinton - Although her smackdown of the college student who asked about credibility and the Lewinsky scandal was a bit amusing, if she's going to go around the country stumping for her mom, she's got to answer tough questions about her mother too.

David Paterson - For throwing out all of the skeletons in his closet at the outset of his term on the heels of Spitzer's prostitute crisis. Seriously, affairs, marijuana and cocaine? I really didn't want to know all of that. Come on David.

T.I. - He is allegedly set to plead guilty today for weapons charges. What a waste of talent and opportunity. Did he think about all of his kids before he did this?

Was Chelsea's response to the now infamous "was your mother's credibility hurt during the Monica Lewinsky scandal" question in which she annoying replied "That's none of your business" really appropriate?

I can understand why she was annoyed but I'm a bit confused by the "That's none of your business" response. Had he asked whether her parents have a good marriage, sleep in the same bed, etc. I would totally agree with her response. But, somehow "that's none of your business" strikes me as a bit odd when someone asks about a candidate's credibility.
What do you think?

Every now and then I post something random------- here's another (Kate Bosworth) -------- Ok, so you already know I love fashion. Fabulous clothes - huge fan; Super high heels - huge fan; leggings - sometimes fan; cute jacket - big fan. You know when you're packing for that trip? and you're traveling somewhere cold? and you want to make sure you take all your warm clothing? so that you don't get pneumonia? well, this picture is the perfect example of what happens when you're so lazy that you don't want to pack the clothes - because you're too lazy to carry around a suitcase full of clothes --- but you still need your warm clothes....................... so you decide to wear everything all at once..............

Very fashion-forward, adorable and cute, but i'm very overwhelmed just looking at this getup--- the tuxedo/david copperfield-magician-style-pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat-style jacket, the dress, the ruffles, the gathers, the lacey pattterns on the dress, the leggings, the pattern on the leggings, the heels, the monochromatic black, all of it!!!

Random Question of the Day--Does Money Matter?

Monday, March 24, 2008

Most of my girlfriends are educated black women who earn over six figures. So, we spend a lot of time talking about their chances of finding an educated black man who is also financially secure. And, perhaps we're pessimists but we've basically concluded that their chances are very slim. But, should it even matter?
I read an article in Essence a few years ago stating that black women who earned six figures should consider men who earned less because money isn't everything. That may sound great in theory but in the expensive, materialistic world that we live in is this thinking practical? If for instance, a woman earned 200,000 a year and her husband earned 50,000, would the husband resent her? would the woman resent her husband because she felt like she was taking care of him? I'm confused.
What do you think?

Dream Vacay Spots

Friday, March 21, 2008

Hey folks!

It's Friday, I'm at work, but why not fantasize about better things? I'm going to Jamaica in May and Portugal in July, but I'm always looking for new places to visit. Here are some places I want to go (in no particular order):
  • South Africa - I think it's the perfect combination of culture, history, activities and nightlife. From visiting Nelson Mandela's prison cell to whale watching while sipping wine to an overnight safari to great nightlife. (sigh!). Maybe in December, I can swing it....

  • Argentina - Everyone goes to Brazil so I'm not rushing to go there. I've been reading up on Argentina and it seems like a great place to visit.

  • Dubai - I think it's relatively safe for the Middle East, and if by some chance I become a millionaire, I can stay at the world's only 7 star hotel and have my own butler and two level suite.

  • Tokyo - It seems kind of crazy and exciting. (I wouldn't mind Singapore or Thailand either).

  • Ibiza -ridic nightlife, luxury, beaches, rich folks. Sounds good. HA!

  • Australia - I'm a little turned off by the aboriginal treatment, but it does seem like a beautiful continent.

So where are you dying to go and when are you going?
