Halloweens Monday Mix

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on October 31, 2011 at 10:51 am

I’m on top of the world, (I am), and it’s just Day 2 –
According to the 7 day calendar that is my truth.

Ol’ Rick Perry looked as high as Charlie Sheen
during last Fridays zooted out media stream.

Before taking the podium to communicate a myriad of things
It appears the governor may have had a couple of drinks? πŸ™‚
Peep his (out of character) “energy” to see what I mean:

Also on this Monday, I am packing to move;
relocating out of state is my current groove.

The president promised jobs and congress said damnit!
Then INTEL called my guy to duly take advantage.

My daughter is a freshman at an MISD school,
who thinks this ‘relocating thing’ is so ultra cool.

Just knowing she thinks so – makes me feel a bit merry;
for our financial low was beginning to look kind of scary. lol!

Halloween is fun — I like the unpredictable scare,
but never wanted to see my finances GO there.

BOO! It’s Monday and we’re starting over again;
A brand new week – a brand new zen.
Tonight I’ll be in costume again,
to make my neighbors blush and grin.

I do it every year. I’m hardly one to behave.
Last years lady bug will be this years french maid.

Fishnet stockings on legs and mock cuffs on wrists,
Un-bowling chocolate candy in loads by the fist.

I’ve got ART work to do — which I enjoy doing a lot,
I’ve got to complete my daughters halloween costume robot.

It’s the cutest thing – I learned “How To” from a GRANGER dude.
Perhaps you saw his instructional video posted up on al la YouTube: Oooo.

Last year I bowled chocolates – you should’ve seen how fast they went.
Today’s sweeter sensation is Herman Cain’s relation to sexual harassments.
What a fine time for alleged victims to surface & vent.
Is his honeymoon with conservatives already spent?

What an awesomely frightening mix and appropriate for the day.
My kid produced the headline pic post last nights scary bake.

Well it’s Monday for sure – and with that it’s HALLOWEEN,
I’m Qui

That “French Maid she” ready to hone the candy scene.
I’m a giver.πŸ˜‰

I’ve got a Thursday Jones

Put QUI in your ear & Tell me what you hear...

Peep the way I lay it.
I rather fancy to GRIOT say it:


How are you feeling today?
I’m Qui
On some ORAL Play.
Please ENJOY THE DAY. πŸ™‚

OMG! I just read an article about a serial rapists that’s on the prowl in Dallas County. He’s not prowling for just any type of woman, but a DELTA SIGMA THETA woman, and what’s worst, he’s targeting sorority alumni’s in their 50’s and 60’s? What the Ooo-oo-oop?

“Ooo-oo-oop!” is the sound that the Delta’s make while thrusting thier two hands forward making a triangle shape. Have you ever seen/heard of it? More over — Have you ever seen/heard of the suspected rapist? If you have, let him know the Dallas County Police are looking for him. I read about the story on Speaking of BlackVoices…when did AOL acquire Suddenly all of the community bass has been replaced by a corporation of people…kind of like Isn’t there any black authentic sites anymore – besides mine? My curiosity respectfully takes a back seat to the column at hand:

Rapist Targeting Delta Sigma Theta’s — Over the last 11 months, four women in the Dallas area have been raped in their homes, and their attacker seems to have been targeted them because they were members of Delta Sigma Theta, one of the nation’s prominent African-American sororities.

The most recent attack took place on Friday in the town of Corinth, TX. All of the victims are in their 50s and 60s, and were assaulted at night between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. The attacker revealed personal details about each of the women, leading authorities to suspect they are looking for one attacker.

The police have asked two local alumni chapters to turn over their rosters, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“While it is not yet confirmed that these victims were targeted because of their affiliation with the Sorority, we are erring on the side of caution and are advising our members in the Dallas area to take the necessary precautionary measures,” Cynthia Butler-McIntyre, the sorority’s national president, said in a statement. “To think that our members are being targeted is disturbing and extremely disheartening. Until the individual responsible for these crimes is brought to justice, we will continue to remain in close communication with one another and law enforcement officials in the respective jurisdictions.”

“It’s very unusual that this guy would target people from that sorority,” a forensic psychologist told the Denton Record Chronicle. “It certainly sounds like he has some beef with that sorority.”

The police have released video of a man believed to be connected to the attacks. The suspect is between five-feet-seven inches and six feet tall, and between 275 and 300 lbs. He has a trimmed beard, a short haircut, and possibly a receding hairline.

I didn’t pledge in college. I knew I could do better.
I was down with me-phi-me, my sister pledged DELTA.

I’m concerned about the story because I haven’t read or heard more,
I’m Qui
Grateful for and curious about the AOL score.

Cain is Able

In News, Politics, TV Shows on October 18, 2011 at 8:45 pm


…To bring entertainment to the Republican debates
While Santorum & Paul sit on the outskirts & wait.

Are you enjoying the show? Romney’s doing the dang thang-
Though hurdled by the black man from the G pizza chain.

The tension between the candidates (at times) was quite thick,
Romney was being double teamed by a couple of dudes named Rick.

I enjoyed it — It was good.
They entertained in the Vegas hood.

Michele Bachmann spoke her mind & bashed the President @ every turn;
Ron Paul’s slow speech was a slicksters breach & ultimately crashed & burned.

He’s got great ideas & has the capacity to put them into proper frame.
But it’s just not enough when competitions so rough & your up against Herman Cain.

Cain is Able to entertain – invoking a laugh out of me & you.
Truth be told the brothers got soul & makes a mean pizza too.

He can hold a tune – resonating vibrato through his throat.
He’s also fan of the border fence complete w/alligators mote.

You gotta love this stuff – exposure under the big spotlight.
I’m Qui
Bidding you wisdom
amidst your entertainment & a good night.

A diverse RANT

Boy oh! Boy oh! Herman Cain is riding the polls
#Occupy protestors keep “the streets” on swoll,
and hyping up Rick Perry has alas run cold.

Politics is fun and so I’m keeping up,
BoFA still wants 5 – and I ain’t got enough.
Cain’s 999 plan is sketchy, raw & rough,
and Dylan McDermott looks good in the buff.

You haven’t seen FX‘s American Horror Story?
The old PRACTICE legal – sports his birthday glory.
Glued to the tube I pretend he’s doing it just for me. lol.:)

The Young & The Restless is constantly new
Sophia’s bun in the oven is finally due
The daddy’s are pending – a choice between two.

She slept with two brothers, (what a scandalous appeal).
The father is either Malcolm Winters or his big brother Neil.
A classic remake of Lily’s scripted life — fiction real.
I love those soaps with the gritty LAVA feel.

Nothing is as dirty or filthy as how Wall Street plays it
We need a soap opera to parallel how they lay it.
I’d like to work on the writing team that will script the “say it”.

I’d be open and honest – holding no punches with me.
I’d be more blunt that NJ’s Chris Christie,
and more addictive than those donuts made by Kreme Krispy.

Boy oh! Boy oh!
I’m enjoying the surge in ‘the price of gold’,
because I’ve got jewelry to sell – truth be told,
and mortgage rates are pleasantly on the low.

I feel good about it yo! I feel good about the day!
I’m Qui

Well it is done – we’re officially on relocate.
My guy is exiting the UNEMPLOYMENT line by moving to another state.
Going without me, wasn’t a topic that was up for debate. lol! πŸ™‚
So we’re packing to move from the lone star state.

Though this means nothing to you if follow me online.
There’ll be no relocating of my griot grinding mind.
Here on QE – we will continue to intertwine
and come up together via technologies vine.


Six weeks ago my girlfriend found a breast lump
Friday night she had a mastectomy – a dual dump.

They removed both breast and gave her a tight tummy tuck
then took the fat from her belly and reconstructed her lady humps.
…and all of this during breast cancer month.

Thank God she’s got good insurance – American Airlines fits her health needs well.
That is why universal healthcare is needed, so that more victims have THIS STORY to tell.


I’ve shot scores of small business commercials for CitySquares since June’s begin;
However good tis too short lived (in my hood), as my residential status comes to an end.

You wouldn’t believe how many good people I’ve met in such short time.
Connections made will be kept, wisdom says cherish a good mind.
I’ve found many.
Good News and Entrepreneurs have proved to be plenty.


I think I’ve found a renter to occupy my home & continue its appeal.
Which is fantastic because I didn’t want the additional mortgage bill.
Whew, Thank God and For real.

And here we are facing another new week,
I’m Qui
Bidding you good
in all that you do and in what you speak.

Make GOOD NEWS happen. It’s literally up to you and me.

LIFE: it’s twists and turns,
it’s propels and near burns.
Yielding lows that end high.
Bright days – brief nights.

I’m happy about it all.
I get up quickly when I fall.
Time is opportunity & Opportunity is at hand.
I heard she knocks, but waits for no man.

I’m happy about the knocking.
From me, you’ll hear no squawking.

Time is non refundable – so swing hard when you’re up to bat”.
Coach Joe G of KSU & Gordon Sports told me that.

I’m happy about wisdom and people in my life
that yield me knowledge on this journey nigh.

Life is a game – that must be played“.
A witty bio line Fab5Freddy laid.

I’m happy about diversity and things not being the same.
I’m happy about the exposure being given to Herman Cain.

I’m happy with whomever the Republicans nominate and choose.
I’m confident when they go head to head with President Obama – they will lose.

Running a country isn’t easy; the last 10 years makes the case a hard fact.
And I don’t see a nominee in the top Republican 3 that can beat Obama in that.

I’m happy about it, because progress is in the works
and to change power now, could be a move that ultimately hurts
more than we’re hurting now, and could possibly yield more doom.
Please pay attention today- your 2012 vote is needed soon.

I’m happy that we have this online griot stoop,
where you drop in and peep my summarized view.
It wouldn’t be nothing without you. πŸ™‚

I’m Crazy about you and you know it. It’s a bi-product of LIFE.
I’m Qui
Digging you from A to Z and glad to have you on my literal rights.

I’m in it to positively add insight.

No longer under Italian lock and key
is Seattle’s Amanda “FOXY” Knox’y.

Occupy Wall Street is still going strong
All in the name of this economic wrong.

Twitter is keeping the #Trend in high top choice
where the lay man is FREE to propel his voice.

Are you listening?
Herman Cain’s numbers are glistening.

I’ve been enjoying his mind and his point of view.
I just wish the very luck he’s had would be the general for me and you.

Luck? Not all in totality. Herman is a real and smart guy –
who took the lows life dealt him and clawed his way to high.

Respect is due, but glossing over a race’s issues is an absurd lure.
Mr. Herman Cain knows he’s not ‘gone win this thang
But the run could boost sells – during his book tour.

Intelligent man. He’s a siezer of opportunity.
I think that his existence is culturally good for you and me.

Every black person doesn’t think alike and Herman Cain is proof.
We may disagree, but I’m still digging he; Intellect is far from fool.

Sarah Palin is being harrassed and felt the need to letter vent
about people sending her ‘hate mail’ – for NOT running for president.

Michele Bachmann is moving at a steady slow;
a downward spiral in the like’able polls.

Dear Rick Perry:
Is hunting at “N******head is scary”?

I should think so
and it shows in the polls.

And so the news goes: Republicans sure act funny
when faced with the idea that they’d have to choose Romney.

I don’t know about Mormonism — so I shall not speak on.
But it sure is cold, to not have the Republicans soul to back you up & lean on.

Chris Christy said no and now we’re back in the debate lane.
Last polls show a Ron Paul glow followed by a close 2nd from Cain.

Politics – Shmolitics. I am duly having fun,
I’m Qui
Promoting myself like Herman Cain – without the presidential run.
I bid you good day with this NEWS PERUSE sum.

Rooting for The Team

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Sports on October 2, 2011 at 9:03 pm

rooting for the team
While the Cowboys and the Lions were going at it β˜› LIVE
BOFA was over there manipulating ways to get your FIVE.

After we bailed them out, the FDA set restrictions on banker fees.
Changing up the structure of which costs will be passed on to you and me.

BoFA is clever, and refuses to suffer from any structural jive.
BoFA got his bail out and now he’s taxing you an additional five.

I’m pretty ticked because again we the people bailed them out.
Now we’re still in crisis — while “NEW FEES!” – they shout.
GREED is what its all about.

If corporations continue to rape the low man for their good,
a mass of folks are going to resort to playing ROBIN HOOD.

You know the story all too well, so I wont bother to delve deeper into.
I don’t dig BOFA and so I roll over – I’m down with the Neighborhood CU.

Why is it that this is not bigger news? Marked and noted a disgrace?
What ever the reason, it’s now in season to have protesters all over the place.

Wall Street can’t get rid of them quick enough.
The movement is peaceful but the arrests are rough.

We live in America – land of the free.
I’m sure the rest of the world is judging our ‘we’.

How we get along, rationalize and adhere to our own rules.
Are were showcasing a Free World? Or acting like Fools?

Sensationalism drools.

In the meantime there aren’t any jobs, just protesting vents.
There is no gas (to get to work and back), no food and no rent.

Though promise is on the horizon. The people beckon and vibe with a more open will.
But Congress is dick dancing and not giving chance to: the proposed JOBS BILL.

So the LIONS won the game that I was watching this Sunday eve,
I’m Qui
that Griot communicating she – Rooting for the people: Team WE!
