Ring The Bell – For The NFL

output_R4g54y

Yes! Yes! I’m so glad it’s football season
for the vibe that fans release – is my chief reason.

I’m not a STAT’s girl, but I love the unity
that comes with football season. It’s really good to me.

Though I must admit, I had to look twice
at the headline news on Ray Rice.
Aye-yai-yai!

After the security video footage shows
his gf had taken a 1-2-punch 4-doze,
somewhere beyond the elevator door,
and then exited knees down, face to the floor.

No. It’s not good press. No gain or get-ahead.
Now Whoopi’s under review for what she said.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith apologizes for comment made on Ray Rice’s situation

Whoopi isn’t defending Ray for knocking his girlfriend out,
she’s stressing, HIT NO-ONE lest you risk being knocked out.

Be it girl or be it boy – put your hands on no man
or you too, may realize an unconscious knee-2-face land.

——————————
It’s true. It ain’t pretty.
Betting on chivalry – is a pity.
—————

And so on this Tuesday Morning, I bid you early
to hit no man – especially if he’s burly.

FAR OUT with HALLE BERRY

EXTANT

Okay, please tell me that you are still watching
CBS’s EXTANT? It’s cinema-show-stopping.

Each week get’s better and better
The writing is so cold – I watch wearing a sweater.

I’m kidding. I’m kidding. It’s way too hot to cover up,
though I am still curious as to whose baby is in ‘the cut?’

Molly’s fetus is growing and the galactic ring symbols are concerning.
I mean, Molly always wanted a baby, but by an alien, isn’t what she was yearning.

Or is it an alien co-breed at all? Her friend, Alan, is acting up.
I’m trying to hear what he’s saying, but I don’t feel at easy to trust.

We know he’s keeping something about his friend and her body.
But why not divulge all — when clearly asked by Molly?

Good God o’ mighty. I’m certainly filled with proclivity.
Dare I say, I’m scared away by good writing and cinemactvity?

I am not.
This stuff is HOT!

Please REMEMBER NOVEMBER

 

20111115-080206.jpg

November will be 10 years old on October 15, 2014. Besides old age, he’s suffering from the effects of Valley Fever.

It is indeed Tuesday Morning and I feel Special to be alive.
I could’ve lost my life last Saturday evening on a routine highway drive.

I’m so happy to be here, WordPress kin. So happy to be here with you.
I’m sipping a cup of jo, I’ve already eaten a waffle or two.
Ooo!

I’m feeling real good on this morning, though November, my dog, isn’t.
He’s still with me, for the moment; approaching a decade with me and him.

I woke up yesterday morning, preparing to do my Monday blog write
only to find November on the rectified laundry room floor, barely alive.

I did consult a vet and the vet did duly say
November has lived a good life, and his exit is on the way.

I don’t know what more to say. My kid is trying her best to be strong.
She doesn’t want to euthanize – and I concur.  Are we wrong?

We have another vet appointment tomorrow – I suppose then I’ll face my fears.
Do keep November in your prayers. I know his end is near.

And with that, I move on. Today will be the best Tuesday that I can render,
I’m Qui
feeling quite Special this Morning. I am the #PositivePushing defender.

Extraordinary Measures

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on July 25, 2014 at 9:55 am

Have you seen the film EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES starring Harris Ford, Brandon Frazier and Kerri Russell? Wow! It’s great. It came out in 2010 and IMDB users give it 6.5 stars out of 10 while Rotten Tomatoes gave it 28%. I will admit it’s about a complicated situation, in search of a cure for POMPE. Pompe is an inherited disorder caused by the buildup of a complex sugar called glycogen in the body’s cells. The accumulation of glycogen in certain organs and tissues, especially muscles, impairs their ability to function normally. But that’s not entirely what the film is about. It’s about challenges, overcoming them, riding out the process and contributing to it’s positive outcome.

That’s life. Sometimes it may require us to go to Extraordinary Measures to reach any kind of a desired outcome. Whenever I think of everyday extraordinary measures, this little guy makes the cut:

Talk about ‘hammering out a situation‘ – Little man did it.
He harassed the mock kidnapper’ – until he quit it!

He’s not a big guy but his actions are to be seen and treasured.
When it comes to safe guarding the home front, little man goes to Extraordinary Measures.

Kids are always doing the most
so raise your coffee mugs & toast,
for this young man, Daniel Beaty is his name.
He tales a #GRIOT tale; “KNOCK KNOCK” is more than a game:
.

Did you cry? I did.
Oh. My weepy eye-lids…
His heart did long
for his father – who was gone.

Gone where? He told us not.
I think he was under key and lock.
I think his dad got caught up in the hell
that is a black men imprisoned and sitting in jail.

But Daniel did not say, he simply represents
The KNOCK-KNOCK game kids — it all makes sense.

He went to Extraordinary Measures
to produce this griot treasure.

Focus not on what you’ve missed, but rather what you’ve got.
Dad sewed some good seeds in the beginning with KNOCK-KNOCK.

And so it’s the weekend again and I’m happy about it.
I awoke with surging energy and was compelled to shout it.
Me, give up on the day? Ha-Ha! No. I doubt it.
I’ll go to Extraordinary Measures to get what I won’t. I’m ’bout it.

Knock-Knock! It’s opportunity, and opportunity is good,
I’m Qui
defending the day. Give up easy? Some wish I would. :)

Giving up – has never been an option in my hood.
XOXO

It ain’t EASY

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Sports on July 23, 2014 at 7:32 am

Whoever said, “You can do whatever you want to do in life, it’s EASY!” — lied!  A thing is only easy if you set your mind to “conquer,” and not ever because a person said it was. Go for it, but

Not Easy

CartoonCharacters 4-designer com

Recently, I had a 17-year old high school student tell me that she wanted to be in the entertainment business, preferably as a model or an actress. She stood 5’7 and no more than 100 pounds. There were no unhealthy bones protruding; she’s actually quite healthy and her size 2 frame makes her a perfect candidate to get a great price on boutique sample items.

There were many challenges in transforming this child into a junior Naomi Campbell, one of which, she walked with the front of her feet in a “Y” fashion; feet out – charm and etiquette classes came immediately to mind, as I’ve not ever seen a runway model walk ‘slew footed.’ And while that may be a minor conquer, teaching a person discipline requires “Morgan Snow-hurdle” type of energy and determination on both ends.

I provided the necessary challenge at every acting coach and etiquette session, and that’s when the 17-year old aspirer realized — it mattered not how awesome her good genes were — the height and weight of success proved to be much more complex and hardly as EASY as she thought. It dawned on her Naomi Campbell put in work to be where she is today.

What now? The aspiring teen is seeking mall employment at JOURNEYS.

God bless the babies – they certainly need more strength,
if we’re counting on them to pay the future rent.

Apparently self confidence is up but work ethic is down.
That’s not a QUEEN B tiara, that’s a family love crown.

You may have “a look,” but if you don’t put in the work – proper,
no one is going to crown you a winner, but your momma and poppa.

Go beyond good genetics and put in the work. No taking gambles.
Especially if you want to walk stiletto miles like Ms. Naomi Campbell.

Sure you can do anything you want, Naomi makes it look breezy,
I’m Qui
Don’t be fooled by the work that goes in. It’s real and It ain’t EASY.
