Perusing The News

News Peruse

I do it all of the time…
Most of the time through a GRIOT rhyme.
I prefer reflections of a POSITIVE shine
But I can’t control the World News vine…

Up to bat is Tony Hayward, on trial for BP
He thought he’d “play” congress & they turned up the heat.

He was checking his watch just 45 minutes into the preceedings,
He wants his life back — unlike the 11 who are no longer breathing.

I can’t say what will happen from here…
But I am pulling positive that an end to “the pollution” is near.

In a few moments, a wardon will give the head nod
for a UTAH death row inmate to die by firing squad.

On a lighter note, the week started out rough but is charted for a positive spin
My 4yr old neighbor who nearly drowned Sunday, just woke up — so We all WIN!

If you’ve ever seen someone ‘hard concerned’ behind something that had nothing to do with them
You’d be describing me and my praying fam – when the chips are down – we pray on a whim.
Therefore karma rarely approaches us dim.

The 4yr old’s swelling has considerably gone down in his head
His Mom said he’s awake from his coma & was up eating NACHOS in bed. 🙂

There’s something to be said about “the resilience of children”
Again, when the chips are down – and I’m aroundI will pray on a whim.
…because it works!

That was a neighborly situation, but global news never stops
Tonight USHER will be on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, because his moves are hot!
…must DVR because I like him alot.

Game 7 will be on tonight and I’m sure my 56″ will be stuck on that,
I’m Qui
and I’m Happy on this THURSDAY eve! God is so goodI can’t even be mad!

ALL-STAR Weekend

QE is a Fan of ALL of the STARS involved

At first glance one might think the headlining picture is of a Spartan. I beg of thee to look again, it’s actually Usher at the 2010 All Star Game. His leather 6-pack abs vest complete with pecs was strangely attractive. Okay – okay I have a leather fetish. lol! I own a few leather corsets that don’t “rip me up”, but they do bind my love handles quite nicely and Usher was well enhanced as he sang and danced in star mode like he always does.

The Cowboy Stadium is the Largest Dome Stadium to date and has the largest HD television in the world [11,500 feet ] – it comfortably accomodated 108,000 fans Sunday night. The City of Arlington, TX welcomed over 200,000 visitors over the weekend and lucratively enjoyed doing so; the spill over into Dallas, TX was RIDICULOUS! We loved it! Y’all Come Again.

The East Team went hard and The East Team WON!
But not even that could over shadow the half time fun:

Usher went hard and Shakira took the crowd
With her forward pelvic thrusting and her “she wolf howl”.

Her performance was a sexy wow that generated a lot of heat –
That is, until the piano was fired up and out came Alicia Keys.

We were feeling Alicia – no doubt. She melodically conveyed her art
But it didn’t get the All Star response it deserved –because she sang solely about NY.

We all love the NY song – folks around the world would certainly agree
But it almost seemed as if she were purposely “not acknowledging” the BIG D.
Oooo Weee.

When her intuition kicked in & told her with certainty that the crowd didn’t have her back
She changed the words to: “ALL STAR” in place of the word “NY” on her chorus track.

Oh Frack! We could see it in her face – she without a doubt knew
Underestimating the intelligence of the audience just wasn’t the thing to do.

Oh well – we still love her and the halftime show was still pretty good.
Sure we all love NYbut not as much as we love our own hood.

ALL STAR Entertainment is GLOBAL and should be geographically understood.
I’m Qui
And the weekends festivities went harder than wood.
…ie It was pretty good.
