Covid one-nine’s trolling, the gov. is not beholden, we’re losing time that’s golden; it’s gone by.

Is there a man or women? Ignorance: an omen. Girls and guys please cover your hides.

Get ’em up, get ’em up, get ’em up – standards up and progress (forward) in life.
Don’t be scared to take care, no chances or dares as Covid rolls by.

More LOVE on a MONDAY

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 27, 2020 at 5:00 am


.

This is a great place to start loving. Isn’t it?
Treat MONDAY like a love interest, wake up and start “hitting it.”

You know that feeling that you get when you are excited on the inside?
You tend to brandish a smirk when there’s something you don’t want to hide.

Recollect. Ah, yes. You know the feeling.
Love is in the air; engage in heart healing.

If there’s one thing this world is missing — it must be more of this.
So let’s start this week off by engaging in LOVE bliss.
Choose someone random and blow them a kiss.

Just “love on your neighbor.” You can do this without being physically close.
Form a suspenseful text to those you love (and want to ‘neck) –
and send them out around the globe.
Send right away and in a few short days, you’ll be relationship-texting in droves.

I suppose if you’re a steady kind of gal or guy,
You may only text one person; seeking only one reply.

Is that right?
Do what feels good by day and by night.

For me, what feels good is genuine and authentic love.
I’ll take a word, a whistle, a text and a hug.
I love to be loved.

Speaking of Love, is that still P-Diddy‘s pseudonym/name?
Yeah. Well text him, too – he’s ’bout that love game.

The world needs more love… I need it too.
I woke up this morning feeling charming and rolled right over to you.

Good morning o’ goodness and how do you do?
Will you love us back o’ Monday? Let us make it through.

COVID19 is on the ensue; robbing us of immediate fun days.
Love, please be effective at our connective and commandeer this Monday.

1-romantic-young-couple-sitting-near-sofa-blanket-home_23-2147890966.jpgSo why the slow jams video atop of the write today?
Well if you’re at home and not alone (wink-wink) I suggest you play

the way that grown folks do.
Sit near the couch with cover across your laps, pocket-play & smooch.

Remember that?
Donning the covers… pretending to co-nap? 😛

Well, the blanky game is still in fashion.
Insert more love on this Monday; insert passion and action.

The headline music video is ROYALTY FREE,
so listen as long as you like; pair it up with natural steam.

Make Monday a dream that you don’t ever want to wake from,
I’m Qui
Still in bed, with love-birds about my head while composing this yum.

What are you getting into today? Will you be texting-out any love?
If it’s me, who you’ll be texting, (ooo-wee) send mine with a virtual hug.

A head rub is nice, too…

Tricky Little CLEAR TITLE Lien

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on April 24, 2020 at 8:20 pm
truck-sale-scam

She’s a beaut’ but the 411 isn’t true.

I know what you’re thinking — “What type of oxymoron’ism is going on with Clear Title and Lien  being in the same statement?” And you’d be correct to ask, because the statement makes no sense. Yet and still my kid found this beaut’ of a truck and took pictures of it before asking me for a small loan of $5,500. $5,500 is not small change to me on any given day, (I’m a writer for God’s sake) – but my kid’s independence is paramount so I took her request into consideration.

Why a truck? It’s a Texas thing. It’s also an independent act; to move all of your own belongings across state lines without me doing the logistical work. My sweat equity will help her pack her vehicle (or truck), but she can do the actual hauling. Leaning towards a “YES” on the loan, I took to Capital One’s loan portal and typed in the VIN number to said vehicle and the results rendered me a message akin to “VIN not in our search records.”  I wasn’t too suspicious, because this is common, depending on if the vehicle is being sold by a dealer vs. an individual. If it’s an individual selling their own vehicle the VIN number may or may not be in the Capital One portal. Cutting through the chase I went to CAR FAX and purchased a SEARCH RESULT package ($60.00 for 3 VIN searches) that allowed me to input the trucks VIN number for a complete history car report. The report was 6-pages long and page 1-5 was THE LICK! However, on page 6, at the very bottom I noticed a bullet point that said “Loan/Lien reported.”

Car-Fax_pg6-b.jpg

Check the COMMENTS Section of the CAR FAX.

 

What the? Clearly on the windshield of the truck it says, “CLEAR TITLE.” Somebody’s lying. In all of my nosiness, I wanted to know who the lying culprit was on this title, so I read a little more. Seems that the truck was purchased twice in 2019: April and August. The lien came about in August. In a nutshell, it  appears the seller took out a loan on this vehicle after buying it last year.  Knowing full well that there is a loan on it, the owner is looking to take a cool $5,500 from any consumer that doesn’t take the time to pull a Car Fax and read it thoroughly. But why? And why now? Perhaps, because there’s word of a “stimulus check” on the way to most folk who might be looking to get a sweet deal on a sweet vehicle? Preying on the vulnerabilities of others.  Whoever the seller of this vehicle is:

YOUR INTEGRITY IS SHOWING.

Pull your skirt down, because we can see your arse.
Your intentions are fecal from the very start.

But you’re not so smart, blackened heart; tricky little lien scam.
When asked whose the scam damned – you respond, “Here I am.”

May God bless your thieving soul.
I hope the truck isn’t ever resold.

It’s a darn shame that a crook would be so bold;
sticking folks with his loan while he spends the gold.

A “Clear Title” is just that – it should have no “Lien” pending.
I’m Qui
and this is 411 to thee, please read the fine print and keep winning.

What does the 3rd bullet point on the windshield say about the truck?

Life and Love

life and love.jpg

I was on Google Trends the other day researching what you’re into,
and I realized that the words life and love continually bled through.

I really dig that about us; that we still yearn for them both.
I’m glad to comprehend as much – learning you, while being remote.

It’s already midweek, do tell how you’re feeling today?
Assure me that you’re into Life and Love – so home is where you’ll stay.

Pray tell that you’ll say as much. Much still needs to be said.
Please don’t fall for the okie-doke, return to socializing and catch ‘dead.’

Remain on Life and Love. Remain isolated a bit longer.
Be sure to tend to diet and exercise to be stronger.

bikeriding-girl-with-dog.gifWorry you not, I am definitely speaking to self first.
I am days from graduation and ready to fitness swerve.

Going to the gym is still on the curb, perhaps I’ll play outside.
I’ve got a video resume to shoot; I feel like Go-Pro’ing on a bike ride.

I wear masks and gloves everywhere, including in the car on necessary runs.
Good morning beloved, if life’s good hug it and submerse yourself in love.

Self love. Let’s do give it.
Our best lives are waiting for us to live it.

Today rise and operate in high spirits and wisdom. For “our collected good” is my cheer.
I’m Qui
Up early feeling refreshed and girly. Actually, it feels like a new year.

I’m in Love… with Life.

Gotta Love

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, News, Video on April 20, 2020 at 5:15 am

1-Whitney-Cummings.gifComedy isn’t dead, but the genre is kind-of buried.
Covid19 came onto the scene and anxiousness began to hurry.

But it doesn’t have to.
If anyone should be laughing – it should be me and you.

So I went on the hunt for a invoking find
and found laughter in the round around Whitney’s behind.


.
She explores genders lying, mass story-buying, and the accepted consequence.
I,Tonya” was a lying stinker, while “Catch Me If You Can” was a blockbuster hit!

Gotta Love how women get down.
Though both genders reign equally in being the “mass class clown.”

One laugh, two laughs, three laughs, fo,’
I’m a sapiosexual who digs John Leguizamo:

.
Oh! His last name is fun to pronounce, but it’s the braun of his brains
that composes the routines that make him a household name.

Laughter has very little shame. Without restraint, I give into.
When was the last time you were comedy intertwined? Well that’s too long, boo.
It’s time that you laugh a belly-who.

Today is Monday and all is not lost.
Just be sure to coat serious situations in silly sauce.

O’ you must. You must.
In God and laughter– we can trust.

Let nothing taint your laugh box;
direct unnecessary seriousness to: kick rocks.

___________________________________________________________________________________

RELIANCE on SCIENCE

weird-science

What’s happening with COVID19 and the lack of scientific testing results,
leaves me no choice but to stay lightly poised to laugh-off my butt.

So let’s start with any series streaming
that makes today look comedic; flip our bad scene’ing.

The series below is still “queen’ing,” and has a multi complexioned glow.
I’m talking about Robin Thede‘s A BLACK LADY’S SKETCH SHOW.

.
Comedy is good for the soul; on it, laughter is reliant.
Gotta Love Black Women, sketch shows and Science.

Getting It In This Weekend

Good morning, Friday. I am glad that you’re here.
I’ve been craving you since Monday; you’re my closing, dear.

For you, I always cheer and this weeks filming went well.
I did what I had to for the talent and crew to not fail.

Last night I looked over the film footage as I labeled it to edit.
Each scene played naturally; as if no script and none had read it.

That’s what’s up dear, Friday. I am in high spirits today,
because my fam is near and dear and doesn’t mind my script play.

What have you been up to over recent days?
Are you staying at home and out of the way

of those with essential careers who must go to and fro?
I pray that you are, because they could be a-symptomatic, yo.

I may be also, therefore, I’m staying inside — until I am tested.
I feel fine, but that doesn’t vibe until I’m officially vetted.

How about you?
What’cha know and what’cha into?

Yesterday, after we wrapped, we took a quick drive
to a nearby lake to see if the scene was alive

and unfortunately it was.
Folks were showing physical distancing little love.

I’m sure that most of folks strolling the lake were doing so with fam.
Still, the gatherings were quite thick; CV is a socialite’s damn.

Oh well. I suppose life will be enjoyed and spent.
Besides CV is deadly to only 20%.

DO WHAT!?
Those stats are nuts!

go-in-the-house_lady.gifGet back. Go back inside for a while.
God ain’t forgot that you’re His child.

You do not have to meet Him so soon.
This isn’t the end; your life is at noon.

Let’s celebrate each day that we’re alive as a high day
starting with staying indoors a little more – this Friday.

What do you say, o’ beloved neighbor?
If you insist on getting ill – CV can pull favor.

Do not muster up the nerve to “go outside anyway.”
I need you to be well until the vaccine is underway.

Today is a good day for us to do our most diligent due,
and lean not to our understanding — that this is a harmless flu.

Feeling bored? Pick up a new hobby or two.
Take up painting, sewing, or running a few.

Me? I’m kicking it with the kid today; she’s all about “natural enhancing,”
so she and I will occupy the living room floor to do some African club dancing.


.
Are you free to catch the beat? Care to join in?
Click play on the video and vibe with me, kin.

Movement is the good stuff — if you can manage to get it in.
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby, wake up and give your hips a spin.

Get out of bed & dance or you can dance in…

For doing your thing — please take a bow.

To all doctors, health care workers and nurses,
good samaritans who have donated from their purses,

to the bus drivers, truckers and train operators
to the grocery workers, maintenance techs and innovators,

THANK YOU.

For stepping up to help us all through.
In pressing times character is true

We see food handlers, too – yielding service and showing little fright,
so we stand outside (around the world) to solute you every night.

I’ve no balcony to herald from – still I insist on being included, yo,
so at 7pm I sing a THANK YOU hymn from my 2nd story window.

THANK YOU

so very, very much.
Life would have little compassion without your touch, ‘

Today is hump day and I’m off to film a scene,
rest assure at 7pm I’ll be back in my window to sing:

“THANK YOU! | Thank you. | Thanks. | You Rock!
Do your thang. Please don’t stop.
I pray that you’re covered by the bloodcv can’t cop!”

Keep your head up, tell & listen to jokes; laugh at corn-ball zingers,

Helping folks cover their mouths. Yep! I bought a SINGER.

Mondays Mercies

Good morning beloved. Did you rise early today?
I did. Me and the fam have plans to work and play.

How on Earth did you spend your Easter Sunday?
I wrote a short film and storyboarded the way.

I’m in a Short Film production challenge with friends.
We are charged to produce a film about physical distance.

A financial prize will go a long way on the rent.
Composing a comedy is a how my Easter was spent.

And then boom! The alarm went off this morning.
I was up at at 4am, with a quick goodbye to yawning.

I-want-to-be-with-you.gifGood morning beloved! I sure wish that you were here.
This “physical distancing thing” has me yearning to be near.

Monday be Merciful to us all and level out the numbers
of folk affected by the virus; official ineptitude bungle.

I arose this morning early because I like to pray;
check in with God, thank Him for my mind and bod,
before going forward to play out the day.

While kneeling in reverence I thought about you,
and inserted into my prayer, that God pull you through.
Check in with Him, for what you should and shouldn’t do.
He’s got the whole world… so he got you, too.

Live more mindfully during this era. Pray for divine & life saving insight.
Wear PPE to protect your family, KL, & me! And “we gone be alright!”

What do you think? How’s the fam feeling?
Boris Johnson was sick, and now he’s healing.

The world could use a little bit  more of that. I’d say it’s quite thirsty.
The world is full of much ignorant bull, I pray today for Monday’s Mercies.

Could you use some? Mercy is a verb
when the kids are at home from school and on your nerves.

Is that what’s up?
Consider the kids to be “gifted love.”

Think about it — you work so much to hold-it-all on the line.
When were you ever going to carve out so much family time?

who-me_black-guy.gif

Yes, you.

You probably were not. So, this moment-in-time is a gift. Do let it be.
Dig-in and wear a grin as you thank God for Monday’s Mercies.

Every free moment that you have today, please use it to pull rank,
by conversing with God (in your mind) and throwing in a few “thanks.”

It will go a long way in your energy yield and I’m confident that you’ll find,
Monday to be full of beloved Mercies wrapped in a Covid19 time.

Everything is going to be fine once we, collectively heed and yield respect to,
I’m Qui
Happy to be among the living with thee. We will only get better if we expect to.

In the age of Video Doorbells | KNOCK-KNOCK

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on April 12, 2020 at 8:10 am

jesus_christ_open_the_doorDoors shut in our faces via opportunities missed pretty often during a life span, however, I pray that the opening of doors are just as frequent in your life and even more so than the doors that shut. It’s certainly attainable, achievable and conquerable. Believe it or not most of the time all that is required to capitalize on the influx of GOOD available—  is to simply OPEN UP.

When nice comes knocking at your door, regardless if you have video doorbell capabilities or not — don’t answer with a frown, because “nice” may get the wrong impression, leave and contemplate (too long) before ever coming back.

easter-love-hearts.gifWhen the possibility of new love shows up don’t face it with the same face you said goodbye with (to your last lover). It won’t make for a good impression in any way. Avoid approaching goodness as if you “don’t deserve it” or like it’s “too good to be true.” Why would you think such a thing? Of course you deserve it and of course it’s not too good to be true. With all of the good that you have done in your life — YOU VERY WELL DESERVE GOODNESS. The opportunity to receive as much is available and near you.

Knock-Knock! Open Up! Let nice find you smiling. Knowing that good times are ahead is nothing to frown about. )))EMBRACE IT(((. Wait for it. Here it comes.

cross-divider
Knock-Knock! Open Up!
It’s Good Will, good times, good love…

Check the surveillance or peep hole. Sheep or wolf? Is the caller familiar?
Should the call bear a “feel” that you’ve longed to reel — be quick to commandeer her.

Make “goodness” your very own. Nurture her and do multiply.
Step #1: OPEN UP. No high guards or harboring grudge can reside.

You deserve much better than to be limited by someone else’s gate.
Project in mind: your future. Smile and journey towards your good fate.

Easter is a day about new beginnings, resurrection and of course that tomb that was Opened Up!
I’m Qui

Happy Easter to thee, rise above all that works against you and do it in love.

Step #2: No malice.
Sip from a graceful chalice.

Step #3: Do it for WE.
Every egg has divine capacity.

Saturday Night Reasons

Good evening, most attractive. Exactly how goes your day?
Yesterday was Good Friday and I think today is going great.

Would you like a split peach onto your coveted plate?
Your taste is exquisite. Would you like it on your face?

wild-passion-kiss.gifThis kiss, that is.
I’m about that affectionate biz.

Gee golly-whiz, I do love a little word play.
A good reason to indulge is always on a Saturday.

In romance novels, the man squeezes and releases her.
This is a good time for deliverance; for tomorrow is Easter, sir.

Shall I release first, pray tell? I don’t mind if I do.
Tomorrow there’ll be eggs in the lawn and life will be anew.

Ooo. Me and you. We can ‘sho be reflectively creative.
When it comes to us being natural; we are Root Chakra related.

We give no thought to it. We do not debate it.
Me and you… you and me… Root Chakra related. 😛

Therefore, on this night we do indeed have reasons
to delve into self and make-good on ignored seasons.

how-to-fake-a-headacheHave you a headache now? Un-uhn. Not tonight dear boys and girls.
Take some BC POWDER and a nice long shower then prepare to rock your mate’s world.

Make tonight hotter than Saturday Night Fever could’ve ever conjured.
Invoke love into the universe; be revived at the sunrise’s bonjour.

I absolutely think that we should.
I’ll bring the water, you bring the good…

liquor.
At least I didn’t say “lick her.”

It would be inappropriate to post.
So, in the morning, how would you like your toast?

B.O.B. aka Buttered-on-Both sides?
Of course after the bacon and egg combo surprise.

ancient-sexual-carving.jpegGot it!
It’s been in the air for centuries – only I recently thought it.

I think  I’m going to exercise it. Surely this is the season.
The cv can’t stand the heat; indulge in Saturday Night Reasons.

Love making is a natural exercise. When was the last time that you were in the gym?
I’m Qui
Getting-it-in tonight, because tomorrow morning we’ll be revived by the Easter hymn.

It’s who we are as a people.
We’ll get it all in, regardless of pew under steeple.

Am I right?
Having said as much, act with natural reason tonight.
Retire early with your beau or girly and make natural heat rise.
