THURSDAY is HER DAY

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on May 28, 2020 at 5:15 am

thursday.jpgMe and Thursdays — we go way back
like 4 new tires on a Cadillac.

It just is what it is.
I’m all about that ‘Thursday biz.’

What are you up to today?
Is everything everything? Are you feeling okay?

Did you sleep well last night? Tell me, love, did you dream?
I did and I loved it – I’m up to research what it means.

Do you ever do that? Research your dream for a dimensional reveal?
Or when you dream something vivid do you blame your last meal?

Either way, good morning goodness. I’m so glad that we’ve made it this far.
I have a shoot this morning – my favorite healing arts star.

What? You don’t know of one? You implore the help of MD’s when you’re in pain?
Please don’t limit your access to good health – call a masseuse, a therapist, a saint!
For God sake, do not lower your quality of life because of pain.

During my documentary research, I learned much about the benefit of humans moving.
This morning via movement, I am up, showing-and-proving.’ What are you doing?

Do something for thyself on this day.
No other day is promised – please have it your way.

When was the last time that you went outside and played?
Thursday’s are verse-days; express your inner-kid today.

Me? I’m due on set in a few short minutes.
Experience is mine for the making; I’m in it to win it.

I’m making egg-scramble for breakfast: sausage-egg-potato.
I’d love to feed you, as well; consume breakfast before you go.

Rise and sip this jo that I have prepared for you.
Let me bid you a productive day filled with good energy through and through.

Whether or not you have to work the weekend, get jitted up, anyway – to win,
I’m Qui
and Thursdays are my day’s to shape the week’s end. It’s always good to start it out with a friend.

I appreciate you in my morning spend.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.

Just because you misplaced your keys 3 times in the same hour,
don’t let it turn your good mood to sour.

Let up on watching television and play more brain games.
The mind is great and beautiful; a terrible thing to waste.

So, don’t be a waste. I’ll add to that and ever so blunt,
Appearing to be addle – is a label that you don’t want.

No siree. Not you. Not me.
Ain’t nobody ever in history
raised their hand and said “Addle? Yeah. That’s me!”
Not one person; not one – nary.

Today is WORD PLAY WEDNESDAY and I wanted to introduce a new word.
According to world news on our country’s views, “addle” is our verb.

Yep. It seems to be word; an adjective sum for our lack.
I just thought I’d let you know, “Yes. Folks are talking behind our back.” :/

But you knew that. No need to conjure up a new fuss.
Remember I mentioned a few weeks back that we may be on the shorter bus.

Remember? Naw. That wasn’t back in November; that was in March.
Yeah, we meant to be great; we meant to be smart.

It’s okay America. We will eventually pull through.
There’s a general election that requires our due.

The election is in November.
Set an alarm for it – so that you remember.

Vote by mail-in ballot if you can because COVID will still be around.
If you cannot just wear PPE to poll-vote in town.

This election will prove to be profound and fundamental to what life will look like;
lest we remain in the feeble lane while all the other countries shape global life.

We got this! Voting is your privilege – it is being challenged and battled.
I pray that we all vote clearly; lest we continue to collectively look addle.

The word “addle” can be used as an adjective or a verb,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Please do not forget this word:

Thursday Purse-Day

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 14, 2020 at 9:15 am

.

Perhaps you’re looking to clutch a high-end FERAGAMO, DOLCE, HAMMITT VIP or a COACH woman’s bag?
For if you know women and their shoes, without a matching purse, the outfit may pose a lag

to her fashion composition, so —
in this piece we’ll broach, “How To LET IT GO.”

No ma’am, don’t LET GO of that work of art by SALAVATORE.
Without which those shoes, will go from fab to chore and even, bore.

Thursday is a great day to focus on a new pair of shoes,
and fashion the purse to not be a holder of blues.

Bag-Lady-Fashion

The PURSE speaks volumes in tandem with a statement shoe.

.

Holder. Just saying the word makes me think of our former USAG.
Golden melanin, a calmer era then that yielded a surplus to we.

God bless he, as I am truly talking about an item
that could also reside in Former VP Joe Biden

and that is, the withal to be properly represent and be on point
in a global ensemble outfit that is a world joint.

You know?
What’s a woman without her clothes?

She is naked.
I won’t even fake it,

I enjoy being nude.
But to show ass or a knock-off bag is just rude.

Am I right? Therefore I write
in griot verses with pivotal insight.

I’ve no gripe, just looking for a new bag.
One that has proper lining and smells not of ball sac. 😛

You can understand that? Can’t you?
What’s in your bag? Is it yellow or blue?

Yellow is a sunny hue,
Drama is lined best in blue.

I like them both, in a shoe and a bag.
A progressive fashion sense is what I have.

It’s okay that we encompass bag hues,
just don’t ever let your bag be bigger than you,

unless it’s filled with cash.
Period.  — a MEGAN Thee STALLION bag!
Then hit me up when you get that.

FUNDY

In Comedy, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on May 11, 2020 at 9:02 am

You know what I think fun is? Maybe you don’t.
Though if you don’t ask me, then you won’t,

so I’d like to share with you my thoughts
on fun under the sun that can’t be bought

and has proven over time to de-bump the bumpy.
This act, dear kinfolk, is what I call a FUNDY.

It can happen on a Monday but most often towards the weekend.
Because we all know “monotony” can’t survive when you’re among friends

and so, the weekend slots have a history of being a fun day.
But that’s no reason to not try “the feeling” on a Monday.

Monday’s fun doesn’t spell out like the weekends choice.
Monday’s fun uses an insiders voice….

of wisdom.
Are you familiar with the works of Shirley Chisholm?

If you are familiar then you may be thinking, “right on,” or “here we go,”
because Mrs. Chisholm was about FUNDY in public service, yo.

The road she travelled was much like our own
fun likely started tapering off as she got grown,

because we all know that “grown people don’t play,”
Mrs. Chisholm found gamification in leading the way.

Make “being well informed and staying on your toesinto a game.
One that you take pride in carrying out with no shame.

Social lockdown can cause your social calendar to look funky,
so replace that funk-block with some in-house FUNDY.

Take the day by the rays and forge the universe with your desire.
It would help if you had on board a little Shirley Chisholm fire.

Never mind that she was a Sagittarius; a Fire Sign up in neigh –
she mastered socio-economics in The House per the New York way.

The good news is we don’t all have to be fire signs to rile up a difference.
Use your air, earth and water chemistry to course correct our systemics.

All that is required for us to win this,
is you committing your best in it.
All truth, please; no gimmick.
Make every Monday a FUNDY – then go with it!

Insist the universe yield towards our way or else
the people may stop stacking capitalist wealth.

I mean, let’s be real… after all economics is just a game —
and the fact that it is spread out over 2% of our nation is a shame.

The Stock Market?
My response is: Kick rocks, kid. 😛

It ain’t really working;
businesses are bleeding and hurting

of all sizes, campuses and halls.
They cannot course correct without us, y’all.

They need us to need them; so they yield no support. Rt Pt Arrow “Get back to work!”
Trust, if you say “I quit,” Lft Pt Arrowyou won’t be alone and corporations will hurt.

Your employer will feel it, too.
They aren’t working ON SITE; they want you to.

You do still have to pay the rent, so what will you do?
Child, tell God about it then focus your sights on YOU.

Focus on your abs and laugh more. What type of jokes do you find funny?
Really? That’s cool. Me, too. Use jokes to make everyday a FUNDY.


.
Don’t even get me started on cardio; you know that I need to workout,
the good news is you can do it in or out of bed! Fundy is what it’s all about.

Perception makes the course correction. Gamification provides the way,
I’m Qui
still loving on thee, like a maternal she – as we play out this Monday.

Nope. Today will not be funky
because YOU insist on making it a FUNDY.

Do it.

50 CENT on The BEAT

In Communication, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on May 1, 2020 at 4:40 pm

Curtis Jackson kicked-it with Ari Melber today
and reiterated that he doesn’t drink or smoke a lil’ hay.

That’s what up! He presented a very clean and clear say,
so Ari took him to task on his rap lyric lay.

50 Cent is all about business action
so he pointed to pop culture in the voice of Mr. Jackson

and made it abundantly clear
that an artful perspective is what he divvy’s the ear.

With his knowledge of the drink and the smoke
he made a niche for himself while avoiding the okie doke.

He has written about the art of his structure in a book, yo:
HUSTLE HARDER, HUSTLE SMARTER
chronicles a successful hustlers to and fro.

50Cent-Hustle_book

The art of perspective therein…

Now that’s ART like baroque. I do like his style.
From his lyrics you’d think that ‘Fiddy lives a life of wild.

Ooo child, it is refreshingly great to know
Mr. Jackson is about business action;
and that it’s his business to “put on a show.”

To think that he has composed a rap persona that yields his reality much dolla’s,
makes a sapeosexual like myself want to stand up and holla:

Do that thang’ Mr. Curtis Jackson, “50.”
Don’t ever stop. Continue to cop and do rock the slang name “Fiddy.”

I think your smile is pretty. Thanks for flashing for all to see,

Dropping griot about Ari, The Beat and 50 Cent on MSNBC.

It’s the weekend, y’all! Get sharp or get pretty;
put your web cam on and jam a song produced by 50

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?

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.

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.
