Monday Morning Rise

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Sports, TV Shows on February 5, 2018 at 5:29 am

newspaper-lady.jpgBetwixt the sheets and the down comforter on top
I slept quite well, dreamed deeply and drooled alot.

Good morning Monday, I slept until 4:30.
Beginnings at their best – watching the sun crest,
with opportunity I’m always flirty.

At this very moment I’m batting my eye lashes at you.
The day is early, dear Monday. What ever will we do?

Me?  Absolutely yes! I am definitely in the mood.
Aunt Stella started something and now I’m in a groove.

But it’s not quite that mono y mono touch that’s known to make a gal drool.
I tell you, Monday, everyday is a fun day; I can’t get enough of school.

You ever have a ‘jones that not too many people understood why or how?
Well call me the milk lady because I’m exposing the cash cow

to obtain a degree of science that I know will lead to new births.
When it comes to honing a picky diet, let education be my girth.

Let it increase my lobe capacity and shape both halves with a wealth of sum.
God bless me as I eat the curriculum of this degree. God bless my cerebellum.

I couldn’t help but to get up early, I anticipate the Monday Morning Rise.
I’ve got to attend lecture class – it’s always a blast.
New info is always a welcoming surprise.

Did you see Bill Maher last Friday night?
It was almost a Frum vs. The Mooch fight.

David was on panel with Bill and Donna Brazile
and before Anthony Scaramucci joined, the vibe was chill.

Though once The Mooch took his seat,
I won’t lie, he faced quite a bit of a heat.

The Friday Night Fight

First of all, the audience members booed him as he walked to join the set.
I reckon it’s something about his last job association that folks can’t forget?

I don’t know, and still it really doesn’t matter.
The Mooch and I don’t see eye-to-eye, but I can stand his chatter.

I see his angle and he’s cool. I ain’t mad.
But David Frum embodied the spirit of my dad –

David was a verbal noose for the Mooch on Friday night.
I was wondering if you’re still rocking HBO? Because we’re still tight.

DirecTV and me… we’re alright. I keep coming back for mo.’
I’m up right now sipping and half listen to Morning Joe.

If you’re wondering why I keep dipping in on them —
it’s because I’m concerned about the way the country is being hemmed.

I take all political news with a grain of salt.
I laugh and raise a brow — but my good day is not up for halt

so I keep it moving.
I may even get online and do a little AP News perusing.

I’m still in bed.
This monologue is straight from the head.

This moment is for you and me and our capacity of no limits under the skies,
I’m Qui
Excited about life, opportunity, WE and of course a good Monday Morning Rise.

What are you up for today?
S C O R E !!

Eating a New England steak.

Congratulations to those outstanding ballers on the Philadelphia Eagles team.
You went out there into the US BANK Stadium and did the dang’ thing.

Congrats! Congrats on hogging up our time and the NFL ball.
Even though I love my Cowboys, I’m truly happy for y’all.

Looks like Tom Brady’s career will continue on even still.
Yep. Regardless of how you feel about him, his game skills are real!

I am a Dallas Cowboy fan! I am not known to coddle with the Eagles in any way.
Though I was secretly pulling for them just to keep the cheaters at bay.

SUPER-BOWL-LII.jpg

So hallelujah to the Creator on high!
It’s a miracle how I’m feelin’ about today’s Eagle flight.

I am sincere in my wishes. I send them with love –
for had the Patriots won, they’d have more Super Bowl Rings than us.

…and we can’t have that.dallas_cowboys_helmet_thumbnail

Goodnight dear NFL fans. Today’s recreational display was beautiful,
I’m Qui
about to turn in now, those battery throwers proved to be dutiful.

A good nights rest will prevent this.

Good morning Monday. How art thou, today?
I’ve been about my studies: Psychology of Play.

I like it very much – I’m learning about me.
Knowledge of self is everything. Knowledge is the key .

Unto thee I say, “Good morning sweetheart.
Did you fancy anyone special last night; that mate that takes your heart?

It’s good If you did but if you didn’t — no loss, no fright.
Start stacking your flirt cards early today and reap play tonight.

Politics is crazy and work is insane
You deserve to end the day in an intimate frame.

Do it. Do it. Do it.
The gang wants to hang out tonight? Screw it!

Forfeit your social hang –
For a more personal bang.
Starting the week off right is my main thang.’
Let the bells be rang!

Good Morning Monday I’m truly glad to see you again.
I’m up on my toes, I’m dressed, got my jo, my laptop, pad and pen.

For in a few hours class will begin – I’m the predator, knowledge is the prey.
I’m Qui
Praying a monumental rise for thee and a comparable release on this Monday.

Hard work is ours –
Don’t forget the PLAY.

Monday Morning after the yawning

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Sports, TV Shows on October 9, 2017 at 5:50 am

happy-morning-modelGood morning Monday. I slept like a baby; no chatty dome.
I was up early sipping jo and feeling girly in my serene home.

I’m a homegirl by DNA – I’m sure. Meaning, I enjoy being domicile.
I marinate in my own place and emerge in the public with a refreshing smile.

It’s worth it and ooo child! If everyone caught on to ‘this way,’
there’d be a lot more transit smiles and more hand waves.
There’d be less bird-flipping and more safe driving engaged.
We might even get into mindful thinking and end senseless road rage.

We might.
I do love the evolution of life.

It’s time to do it again.
The last evolution brought Trump and Putin in.

Good morning Monday, mayhem ain’t your friend.
Hating anyone in your heart (overt or covert) is a sin.

There’s another white supremacist rally is planned for Charlottesville.
They’ve put out their own PR. Their use of gall is unreal.

Unity is in a bad place; though there’s still time to heal.
Hate is easily washed away if you let the love in your heart spill…

Peep this Mike…

Good morning Monday. We’re alive, life is good, hence,
Is there anyone among us who understands VP Pence?

He spent tax dollars flying from Cali to Indiana yesterday for the game
and decided to leave after some players took a knee – to emphasize “lame.”

Not “lame” as it pertains to how he feels about the players protesting for equal police protection and rights
but lame as in he and the prez used this stead to spread a little divisive light.

Pence then again, on the taxers payers dollar and dime
flew back to the West Coast to Vegas grind.

I’m sure he wasn’t hitting the casino’s but he is on a gamble.
He’s playing a game with the American dollar. Something we can’t handle.

Obviously. Right?
Ask Tom Price about those flights…

Alright. That’s enough.
Life for those in power is pretty rough.

Though Bob Corker has shown big guts!
He’s been calling the prez’s tiny twitter bluffs.

I’m praying that we’ll all be okay; for the future, I want to see her.
I’m Qui
and when I say “I,” I mean “WE” – so what’s with poking at N. Korea?

These are the headlines that we all should refuse.

Dallas Fans in Cardinal Land

Demarcus Lawrence – #90 put in work

I don’t want to piss nobody off — really
and I despise no NFL team like i do Philly.

cardinal-bird.gifI don’t.
So to “ride on the Cardinals” – I won’t.

What I will say
is that Dallas came to Phoenix to play.
and hey-ey!
That works for me on any day.

Good morning Tuesday. I am alread enjoyjng your seam,

Appreciating the support shown across the NFL sport – from all who took a knee.

Monologue Hog

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Sports on September 11, 2017 at 4:45 am

Focus

Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came rolling in right after Harvey.

Uncle Corey insisted that he hunker down in Key West.
Most of the other fam went on the lam — but Unc was up for the test.

I haven’t heard of his status yet. I’m still praying for a rain thwart & stall.
To the McIntosh fam that is my connective clan: please send a text or call.

The weather in Arizona is on ‘beautiful ball.’
Sky – clear, sun – out and the birds are on ‘call.’

To those on the south coasts: I’m praying for y’all.
And after y’all hear from Uncle Corey send us a text or call.

I have a little sister in Houston that survived Harvey’s brut.
The pics she posted online revealed the saddest truth,

Her home is flooded and looks interior destroyed.
The love remains minus the clothes, furniture and toys.

She has two teen children – and within the two is a vast capacity of love.
I saw instagram vids of the shelter and her kids – they brought with them ‘the fun.’

Their high spirits glowed through the video bytes.
Their socio-economics were disrupted but their high spirits buffed it–
They’re up for the challenge of rebuilding their lives. 👍🏾

Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came in hot and co-signed Harvey

to convey a message that Earth is unhappy.
Her land is carelessly sheared; her forests are assets – not a beard
and her waters are litter-nappy.


The gasoline and coal that we’ve burned…
Earth is speaking. Will you listen and learn?

Is it too much of an inconvenience to consider the fact
That we’re living a bit excessive? Must we eat all of the fat?

I had a car accident about  a month ago
and figured it may be time to upgrade the car, yo.

But then I started questioning, ‘Where am I driving to?
I work from home; less fro and more “to.” 🤗

Then I started adding up the good of a new car, for me:
I came up with shiny paint, minus my down payment bank and transit compliments of “Oui.”

Hmph. That isn’t enough for me. Incentive remains to bite the “new car challenge.”
And don’t go giving me that mumbo-jumbo about “better miles per gallon

conversation.
I am not driving across the nation.😆

In fact, as of late I’ve been walking a lot more,
enjoying nature and reaching my FitBIT score.

I’m also looking at the trees, the grass and the cars that pass by,
and I’m thinking “Lord bless the speedy travelers.” I’m guilty too – I shan’t lie.

Do I really NEED a new car?

Ever so consciously I awoke and arose today
while the rain whips the south coasts out of shape…

On another note

Beasley is Cold!

What about the NFL game last night?
Dak, Whitten, Williams and Elliot set it off right.

They brought an Irma’esque storm
That sounded a giants alarm.

I don’t think Dak wanted another repeat
of last years NY Giants double meet & defeat.

Last night the Cowboys did ‘the dang thang’
and shared with the Giants a lil bit of hurricane.

Watching the game was a great way to pass the time
when reality and chaos was hard on my mind.

After a full inhale of plays and a satisfying slow release
I realized Dem Boys came to play. Godspeed on being BEAST‼️

I’m happy today for life, love and those that hurricane survive,
I’m Qui
Loving the A-Z because amidst troubled skies she has the best sunrise.

Give the creator thanks if you were able to wake up and open your eyes.
Yes, YOU!

Good Morning Monday

I am quite alright and refreshed
Yesterday God was good and I copped the best rest.

Wooo and Yes! Do indulge, and tell how are you?
No child, I’m not crying any more – I insist, I am through.

I’ve de-puffed my eyes and returned to caring for me.
SELF PRESERVATION, fam, is still key and good for Qui.

Ooo Wee! I’ve also learned a lot about me and “loss grieving,”
It released the shopping gene in me – my CC was cash heaving.

I killed DSW on Friday evening. I tell you, me…
They said I had a $40 credit so I spent (more than) bills of 3.
I reckon it’s just how I grieve. 🤗

Dear Monday: it’s good to be back. I am so ready to settle in.
Last week I took an “L”, this week I can only WIN.

Big Sean knows what’s up,
Take a minute and jam his cut:

Congrats to the French peoplethey voted beyond hates hump
And sent Marie LaPen packing – they didn’t want a female Trump.

I’m so happy for them (the French people). With unity they’ve made no exit.
They didn’t follow our funky dumb asses like we followed Brexit.

Oh heck! It’s too early in the week for me to start “a read“…
Aw that’s a lie. Reading gets me by.  Pardon me, please.

I’m akin to starting up early and carrying on, rather late.
I’m also tuned into what’s going on this week with Sally Yates.

What is this business that the administration is tangled up in?
And what do you mean you skipped the vetting process and let Mike Flynn in?

Is this the old “I just copied off of her,” antic that dummies used in high school?
Or do they really think the world is “like them?” A bunch of knowledge-less rich fools?

Either way, this day has got to be a funday.
There’s nothing like congressional testimonies on a Monday.

Cleveland Cavaliers! We saw you, baby! All Dunks and laughter.
After you put that can of whoop ass, 4-in-a-row on them Raptors.

King James keeps doing his thang, so I’m encouraged to continue to break through,
I’m Qui
And Good Morning Monday. Communing with you is what I do.

and

I love it, too.

Good Morning Monday

3-2-1-smile.gifChild, you’ve been on my mind
The DRAFT came and the draft went
and The COWBOYS did fine.

We needed help on the Corner Back line and scored.
We drafted 3 that couldn’t be ignored:
nfl-draft-2017-cowboys.PNG

Taco was an awesome take away. We drafted him in the 1st round.
So Good morning Monday, let’s chart another funday
and start this day off with a productive pound.

So how did you sleep last night? Pretty sound?
I did until that ol’ rooster came around.

That’s what I call my iPhone 7’s alarm. The tone is just dirty.
Well that’s how I feel when it goes off every morning at 4:30.

I’m always like, “Good Morning Monday.” It is you, whom I’m so glad to see.
Then I grab my cup of jo and mosey on over to chat it up here on QE.

What did you think about the White House Correspondence dinner?
The president didn’t attend and I read the zingers were  winners.

I didn’t attend it or watch it – I had an aging parent on my hip,
but I did manage to read a few highlights and see some funny clips.

I don’t have video links to share with you at this time, honey,
but I do have a few quotes that I thought was funny:

    1. Poking Fun at Kellyanne Conway’s use of “Alternative Facts”
      “I would say it’s an honor to be here, but that would be an alternative fact. It is not. No one wanted to do this, so of course it lands in the hands of an immigrant. That’s how it always goes down. No one wanted this gig! No one. Don Rickles died just so you wouldn’t ask him to take this gig. RIP to Don Rickles, the only Donald with thick enough skin to take a joke like that. RIP to the legend.”
    2. Comparing the Trump Administration to Anthony Weiner
      “For the record, the WHCA is a group of journalists who cover the White House. They are not King Joffrey’s goons. So I am so glad you guys are all here tonight to honor a great tradition. Because we all know this Administration loves deleting history faster than Anthony Weiner when he hears footsteps. So thank you for being here.”

3. On Trump’s Absence at the WHCD
“I get it, we gotta address the elephant thats not in the room. The leader of our country is not here and that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight. It’s hard for Vlad to make it. Vlad can’t just make it on a Saturday, it’s a Saturday! As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke.”
“I get why Donald Trump didn’t want to be roasted tonight. By the looks of him, he’s been roasting nonstop for the last 70 years. Historically, the President usually performs at the White House Correspondents; Dinner, but I think I speak for all of us when I say he’s done far too much bombing this month.”

In other news have you been watching that hit show wherein Sanaa Lathan was hired?
It broadcasts on FOX, the story lines are as explosive as it’s title: SHOTS FIRED.

Have you seen it? If not, YOU MUST. It’s a view from our community; a default that we face,
It stars Helen Hunt, Will Patton and that dude that played Jesse Owens in Race.

You did see the film Race, didn’t you? Well fear not if you did not see.
It’s never too late to cop a view on your plate via a myriad of avenues including DVD.

shots-fired-sanaa-stephan.pngSanaa’s co-star on SHOTS FIRED does have a name —
His parents blessed him: Stephan Jones and I like his game.

The cast chemistry is great and the writers are keeping it real.
SHOTS FIRED has that direct art-imitating-life kind of feel.

What makes this show different than other cop shows that I don’t watch,
is that besides the banging story lines I like this POV of DOJ & the cops.

It reveals to me that while sensational cases are exploitable flirty —
this series makes a strong case that ALL COPS ARE NOT DIRTY.

My word, have you ever heard? And isn’t this important to see?
FOX is heading up another winner, this could have easily been on ABC.

Ooo wee, the cast chemistry is sweet and the writers are so direct.
Ashe Akino and Preston Terry navigate into the scary to keep all in check.

Not quite Mulder and Scully or NY Undercover’s Det. Williams and Torres.
Ashe Akino and Preston Terry are noir pioneers and DOJ lead.

I find the view to be attractive, appealing, educating and a new must.
It’s nice to see men and women of the law that look like me – bridging trust.

output_UbDZXy.gifWe are people with menial differences like the color on the front side of our hands.
Though we are greater connected in spirit; way to easy to relate to and understand.

This is what SHOTS FIRED is yielding me. A little comradery connect.
Again the cast, the writing crew, location and appealing views will keep me coming back.

Good Morning Monday! I’m awake and watching ON DEMAND, 🙂
I’m Qui
Sipping and chatting it up with thee, because the view before us is never bland.

From the fictional write ups to DC and the real law of the land…
Child, we’d be better off to put it all in Gods hands.

I do.
Good Morning Monday, I love you, too.

Dear Monday

I’d like to tell you a few things about me:
I like mystery, mystique and suspense — these are key.

black-like-me-film-poster

Black Friday required NO MELANIN darkening to #ComeUp on a good buy. 😀

I like the chase and the conquer then back to the chase.
I like it straight in my face, to the head – no chafe.

Life is stronger than any fermentation you could ever sip
Good Morning Dear Monday – let the goodness of your hours rip.

I don’t mind if it beats to the tune of my favorite Blues melody,
as long as the sharp spikes of lyrics on a linear are steamy and chique.

Unpredictable like me — unrelenting as a sapeosexual-she, Dear Monday,
take any existing mundane and toss it in as fuel for a more productive fun day.

After all, it’s CYBER MONDAY already, because we obviously didn’t get out all of our pay
when we set out to spend or to pretend on the weekend of Black Friday.

Yay! You can still catch that sell and give your bank balance hell, if that is your intent.
But me? I’ve done my part. I went out on Saturday and my $240 was spent. 😀

You’d be pleased to know that within that price – and I boast
are workout gear to carry me through the new year and 2 DALLAS COWBOYS coats.

Yes thermal-lined COATS! Not jackets! Black Friday was certainly a sport.
AZ is hot so I’ll wear these when next I visit cold heart-thumbnailNew York.

black-friday-come-up2016

Coats + electric fireplace = a Happy Qui!!  Coat Model = CupcakeChique

I’ll wear my coats when next I visit heart-thumbnailDallas.
At which time I’ll drop back in on “Jerry’s palace.”

Have you been to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX? It’s beautiful, good Lord.
Any game this season is a good visiting reason – Dak and DEM BOYS are Going HARD!

Dear Monday, I’m really on fire because, (well I’ll say it again)
on Thanksgiving, the Redskins were giving and THE COWBOYS took another WIN!!

I missed you this weekend — I cozied up by the fireplace
that is on my wall, an electronic install, perfect for a condo space.

Not to mention that my electronic fireplace yields me an option to see fire with no heat.
This little product is a direct come up from good ol’ Black Friday 2013.

My #ScriptWriting game has been crazy. I’m a major drama inventor.
I’m binding concepts of situations – yet, to soon share with my reel mentor.

Do you ever do that? Hoard eggs that could possibly embolden?
Well I’m over here “egg-laying,” fam – and I think quite a few are golden.

Fee-Fi-Fo-Fun!
I smell a journey of adventurous sums.

What have you got up today?
If you see me on the to and fro – tilt me ‘a nod’ or a “Hey-ey!

I’ll speak back if I don’t speak to you first.
You should respond to let me know that I my shout-out was heard.

You wouldn’t believe how many people do not speak back.

Nonsense. Bump that. I’m smiling at you at the next stop light.

Dear Monday, I’m digging you baby; I’m juicing with writes…

happy-thanksgiving-2016[NFL dibs]: The WIN goes to the COWBOYS again. #TheyDidIt.
Moms visited, dinner was gifted; tabled contents — we did #RidIt.

Are you still feeling thankful? I am. May the feeling remain.
There was a lot of food, I long chewed – therefore I carry no shame.

Are you still feeling thankful? Did you pack left overs for lunch?
I think the left overs we’ve taken up will go-on-to feed us a bunch.

We had sweet potato pie from Texas to go with the crumb apple and the pecan.dedric-overstuffed
Mom made the sweet potato pie and Cracker Barrel produced the last two pawns.

We ate most of dinners sum and then I worked out like I was in training.
The weather was perfect, good love was erect and the clouds pulled no raining.

Weight? I’m not into gaining, we had a party, a real rumba!
Friday morning will find me back on my grind: jam blocking ZUMBA.

Back on my grind making good memories and hosting good fam.
Back to not watching any type of news or giving a rats sham.

I am both grateful and thankful alike
that I have this artsy outlet of WRITE.

I am both happy and thankful indeed
that life is a gift and love is a seed.

At 6:40pm I have dipped off from the fam for a little literary fun
because I’m happy, I’m full and my COWBOYS WON!!

Congratulations COWBOYS! You are certainly looking better,
