dope-bday-qui-2016What is it?
Is it a feeling, is it a drug?
Is it addictable, like my )))HUGS(((?

These shoulders shrug, I think it’s an emotion.
I feel dope when I meditate; when I give praise in devotion.

I feel dope when you feel me. I love to connect.
Sometimes dope is vindication after being unjustly vexed.

Dope is your DNA. Look at your hair, skin and nails.
Stay healthy, be fit, shoot “antagony” to hell.

Dope is that good feeling, you want to inhale
when the Doc comes back and says your diagnostic is swell.

I’m on a HIGH. I stay high. I live for the life of it — with no choke.
I’m unlimited in my charted quests; I don’t scare easy. It’s DOPE to VOTE!

There’s always hope in my mind and there’s always room to grow.
Dope is ditching negativity and sticking with those who meet your lobes.

This method is effective MORE than the strongest smoke.
I dig the “intellectual relate” – I give and receive; No choke.

I don’t cough either– I say what I mean,
I’m Qui
and this is a HIGH DAY for me. DOPE is all about me.
Oooo Weee!

If you see me in the streets
throw a shout-out to me.
and that is

Girls just want to have…

funWell I don’t know if they even know that they want it, but those of us who posses it, know full well that they need it. The thing is, how do we get them to not only desire CLASS, but hone it?

I am pleased to say that most young women (that we  see reflected in the public eye on television) seem to possess the most awesome curves via natural DNA and then there are the mass of them that have enhanced their physiques via working out, cosmetic surgery and implants. Either way, the lot of them look fantastic. I kind of think of fitness and enhancements as art work. Fitness is the longterm solution and I think that commercial society is doing its part in pushing fitness centers, nutritional centers and even fit reality shows to reinforce how important fitness is. Perhaps it’s my immediate surroundings, (my college-age kid and her friends), but the youth are embodying and making FITNESS and LOOKING GOOD their own. I love it. I support it. However, beyond watching calories and understanding your metabolic burn how are you branding all of that physical awesomeness?

A classy look is one thing, but once the mouth opens, will the class still stand? You gotta think about it. What is your conversation about?


Please have something of value and substance to talk about. I know this is easier said than done. Great conversation could never be taught, but you can get in the habit of building it by conditioning your mind to not waste time when communicating. Say what you mean and by all means MEAN WHAT YOU SAY.

No conversation is for nought. Life is full of time that is not refundable, You can use it wisely or waste it frivolously. The line of those that love to waste time is long – please don’t add your two cents to to it.

Education is sexy. Invest in yourself and self educate, if  you must. Education is paramount in communication. Resist trying to BS folks in conversation or trying to wing it. Those of us that converse with the best of them will sniff you out the minute you start. Please keep in mind:

If you don’t have “the words” in the end you won’t be heard,
instead he’ll be thinking this:


Remember branding and marketing starts with mastering YOURSELF; building a stellar reputation of good character. Watch what’s on your mind and what comes out of your mouth. It all matters and ultimately leads to shaping who you are. Conversation rules the nation. Get some and don’t forget distinct originality.

Gaining and exuding class is attainable to us all; however, it’s not a one day course. It’s a lifestyle. Anything worth having YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK AT. Class is worth it. Nothing looks better on you, your journey and ultimately your legacy.


So when you do get his attentions, Dear Divas — here is the secret
be armed with GREAT CONVERSATION if you intend to keep it.

Men have short attention spans and new things can quickly snap their neck.
You’ve got to be the most interesting, rely on mystique and respect.

Oh yeah! We’re sure to talk about that next. Never say everything at once,

A Classy Mentoring, she – saying “Don’t forego class just to have fun.”

Why settle for one without the other?


You can have both:

Its Party TimeWatching my 17-year old daughter grow up, travel with me, relate with me, weigh in with me, and even begin with me has been a beautiful experience and especially over the last 2-weeks [Spring Break]. 2015 is  a big year for us, besides me loving the number 15, this is my daughters high school graduation year. This will also be the year that she enters into college and my domestic nest will be lighter. Yep! That’s it. I’m a kid again.


I had the babies and raised the babies –
good God it’s time to pamper the lady!

It’s time for me and my HS beau to approach the ramp
that we diverted from to raise a camp.


The camp is raised and we’ve armed them with the knowledge
that they will need to make it through college.

They are well on their way and there’s no debating,
this nest is lighter and needs redecorating.

Oh yeah! I’m one of those Mom’s. I’m moving on.
My agenda is sexy, my attraction is strong.

I love the kids but life is to be copped.
The kids are almost grown And it DON’T STOP!

I started having kids early, HUMP IT — if you’re about to be free too!
I’m Qui
Life is at hand And it DON’T STOP – I’ve got all kinds of stuff I want to do.

Happy Hump Day sweetheart.
Spring is at hand – yielding us a new start.
Take it!
