Today is the eve of another NEW YEAR
I pray we all enter SAFELY – what feels so near.

I bid thee tidings of a more prosperous cheer – in stride.
I pray that you drop in more to parallel my vibes.

I think that we’re in for a blessing in the upcoming year.
I believe that HOPE springing forth – will crush all fears.

I believe in you and am pulling for 52 new weeks of WIN,
My name is Qui 
and I appreciate thee for rolling through. Please do it again. 🙂

They're Talking to ME

I was bound to watch it – it’s just what the doctor ordered (along with Mother Natures low temperatures) and it is fast becoming one of my favorite talk shows – along side of Tyra Banks and The View. Are you watching it? It comes on CBS @ 2pm/1pm CST. The Talk is hosted by: Julie Chen, Sarah Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson-Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur. Marissa was the former host of “Dance Your Ass Off”. Remember her? With the big hair and the big smile? Well on The Talk she’s working the audience aisle. She’s also toned down ‘the BIG HAIRSPRAY do’, added a blonde highlight or two and wha-lah! She’s back in business & looking good.

Though I’ve not caught an episode (yet) of Marissa sitting at the round table or perched on the couch alongside the other ladies. I’ve only been watching a week or two, because when it comes to adopting “new shows” I’m slow to move. I’m just picky. But the last couple of “Talks” I’ve tuned in to have been right on the money. Their current topics are dead on in vibe. I can honestly say I appreciate each woman on the panel and dig her individual vibe…what she brings to the table.

It’s a beautiful fresh bouquet of beauty, laughter, and relative life experiences. It’s a great afternoon pick me up. Tomorrow I’m sure to turn in because todays preview of Wednesdays show showed clips of Niecy Nash crying on the couch. Oh Lawd! Not Niecy. That’s my girl. I miss her on “CLEAN HOUSE“. Tempest Bledsoe is the shows new host and sticking true to how I do — I’m slow to move. I admit I have not tuned in yet to catch her in action. All the same, I KNOW I’m tuning in to The Talk on December 29th – I have got to see what the flower with the flower in hair has to say. Unnnn! (the noise Niecy is known to grunt). I wouldn’t miss it for a thing.

I’m sure I’ll hit the comment box with the details tomorrow.
Was Niecy crying out of happiness, or some sort of sorrow?

I don’t have a clue, so I won’t fictionally squawk.
I’m Qui
Instead I’ll update ‘my online conversate’ post Wednesdays broadcast of THE TALK.

Keep up with the conversation on TWITTER: TheTalk_CBS.
I’ll see you there.

We made it through

We made it through another Christmas

My wish was
for all to go smooth.
And in the end – all was real cool.
Nobody played the fool or hinted to: cut up
and our 5 course meal was more than enough.

We told stories and watched baby videos
of days long gone on a VHS roll.
Memories whose weight superceeds that of gold.
We’ll have to convert them all to DVD – if future generations are to behold.
My digital conveying services were then promptly sold. 🙂

No. I’m not a jew. I’m a free lance artist who rarely minds working for free.
I’m a black chic with a skillful list – I’m just glad my fam’ is down to support me.

So we made it through another end
And facing a new 52 week begin
I’m Qui
May 2011 follow suit – I’ve got plans for you & I to WIN!
