Post B-Day Bloggin...

Good Wednesday Mornin' Folks...

Hump Day and all that good stuff!

I had a blast yesterday... Ate so much food it was ridiculous!

I got some housekeeping out of the way early in the morning... Had to get some bloodwork done at the doc... Even popped in on my Twin for a little while. The children she works with are off the chain... a bunc of little people with all types of personalities! I don't know how she finds the strength to goto work everyday... and for 14 years at that. We all got gifts... and ONE of hers has always been being able to handle difficult situation... That one definitely qualifies!

After that I met a friend for lunch at Dolce this fantatic, Italian inspired spot on 3rd & Chestnut. I had chicken marsala... who doesn't love chicken smotherd with fresh vegetables and gravy... LOL (I ain't a big gurl for nothing) I even got flowers... A beautiful bouqet that included my favorite flower (Stargazer Lilies... just in case you plan on sending me some... LOL).

Now I was beyond stuffed! And I still had dinner plans with my oldest set of friends on this planet. So I decided to walk a little bit to knock the spirit of sleep off of my back! It was a BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL day! If you know me you should also know that I have only had three birthdays in all my life that it hasn't rained.... Yesterday was one of them.... I decided to walk up to this yarn goods shop calledLoop (they don't have a website yet but you know I will keep u up to speed when I find out). They are located on 19th & South. So you know I had a nice little hike from 3rd & Chestnut. Got to the shop and it was the cutest little store. The had all the yarns grouped by type then color. The people that work there were actually knitting & crocheting little projects. They have a section of books with tips, project ideas, and even starter kits for beginners like me. I have been trying to cast on since December and have not been able to do it. Well if you know anything about knitting you know that casting on is kind of essential to the whole knitting concept! If you can't get the yarn on the needle properly... You won't be knitting! I am here to say that I was absolutely giddy last night when I got home and decided to pick up my yarn and needles again. My Twin is a witness yall... I totally was able to cast on 18 stitches AND complete another two rows! I was so excited! So as long as I keep at it I should be able to create some beautiful (at least in my eyes... LOL) pieces!

After my adventure at Loop I made my way to my dinner party. I had a blast! Didn't think I could eat another bite... That was until I saw the Strawberry Shortcake! It was fantastic! Add to the mix two of the cutest 6 & 7 y/o girls and you have the makings of another faboo evening.

Got home last night and pretty much crashed (after being able to cast on... I was spent! LOL!

Thumpin Thursday...

So ya gurl had a wild day yesterday…

I forgot what it was like to be around a bunch of hormone raged children who don’t know the meaning of restraint.

I have witnessed 11 y/o children with makeup, acrylic nails, tongue and chin piercings (yeah man… freaked me out!). I even played double-dutch with my client today…

That was until all the damn helicopters, from every network imaginable, began swarming the neighborhood. I TOLD YALL TO PRAY FOR ME AND MY CLIENT… Didn’t realize how much we would need it. We (the students and staff) didn’t know what the hell was going on… Come to find out… two students got shot just a half a block away from the school. Next thing we know people are coming out in SWAT team suits trying to escort us all inside.


All the students were ushered to their respective classrooms and not only did they lock all the perimeter doors (like Crazy Joe in Lean On Me) but they also had the teachers lock all the classrooms so you couldn’t get in or out… It was a mess.. The kids were terrified (the helicopters sounding like they were about to land on top of the school didn’t help). All in all the two high school student that got shot were able to be released from the hospital later yesterday afternoon.



In other news....

C.A.K.E. has made a return with an event at North By Northwest (In Germantown) tonight at 9pm... Come on out and party at one of my favorite hangouts... I'm gonna kick off my birthday celebration a bit early... LOL After the day I had yesterday I need it!

Make the most of your Thursday people... I plan to

Hump Day Haps!

Well today is the day folks...

What day is that you say???


(seriously man... you need to stop smoking that stuff if you didn't know it was the middle of the week!)

Naw but on the real... I can almost see the end of the week!

Saturday is gonna be a blast! But before we get to there...

I'm about to get ready for my new gig... I'll be providing behavioral health services to school-aged children in their schools and in their homes. Pray for me yall... And seriously pray for them... I don't do the little people often. So this is a switch for me. This is just temporary ( and by temporary I mean that I'll have if for as long as it takes for me to find a different gig or complete graduate school... whichever comes first... Hell maybe both! LOL).

So no links today kiddies...

Well maybe I'll give ya a lil one... LOL ( you know I've never met a link I didn't like... LOL)

Check out these dumb a$$ criminals below (you might spot one of your relatives up in there) Check out the rest of the page HERE http://www.dumb.com/dumbcriminals.htm

Chicago: A man was wanted for throwing bricks through jewelry store windows and making off with the loot. He was arrested last night after throwing a brick into a Plexiglas window...the brick bounced back, hit him in the head and knocked him cold until the police got there.

Portsmouth, RI: Police charged Gregory Rosa, 25, with a string of vending machine robberies in January when he: 1. fled from police inexplicably when they spotted him loitering around a vending machine and 2. later tried to post his $400 bail in coins.

When Stan Caddell wanted to wash his Chevrolet, he backed the car into a foot of water in the Mississippi River at Hannibal, Missouri. When he got out to clean the car, it floated away. Police were able to retrieve the vehicle some distance downstream. According to an officer on the scene, no action would be taken against the driver because "you can't ticket a guy for being stupid..."

Kentucky: Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home. With the chain still attached to the machine. With their bumper still attached to the chain. With their vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper.

A bank robber in Bumpus, Tenn., handed a teller the following note: "Watch out. This is a rubbery. I hav an oozy traned on your but. Dump the in a sack, this one. No die packkets or other triks or I will tare you a new naval. No kwarter with red stuff on them, too." Dr. Creon V.B. Smyk of the Ohio Valley Educational Council says such notes are, lamentably, the rule. "Right across the board, we see poor pre-writing skills, problems with omissions, tense, agreement, spelling and clarity," he moaned. Smyk believes that the quality of robbery notes could be improved if criminals could be taught to plan before writing. "We have to stress organization: Make an outline of your robbery note before you write it," he said. "Some of the notes get totally sidetracked on issues like the make, model and caliber of the gun, number of bullets, etc., until one loses sight of the main idea -- the robbery."

A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense: "My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offense committed by his limb." "Well put," the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses." The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.

A man in Orange County Municipal Court had been ticketed for driving alone in the carpool lane. He claimed that the four frozen cadavers in the mortuary van he was driving should be counted. The judged ruled that passengers must be alive to qualify.

A man was arrested for stealing a car. When he was taken to court for his arraignment the judge asked, how do you plead? Instead of saying guilty or not guilty the man said: "Before we go any further, judge, let me explain why I stole the car." The judge ruled in record time.

A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving revolvers. The first one shouted, "Nobody move!" When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him.

After drinking a little too much, Stewart Butcher went to sleep on a West Virginia railroad track. A while later, something woke him-- a 15 car coal train. "I raised up," said Stewart, "and it knocked me out..."

An Australian man accused of murdering his wife can't seem to get his story straight. June Mathew, John Rushton's second wife, testified that Rushton told her his first wife died of a heart attack, ran off with a Baptist minister after committing 55 acts of adultery, and drowned after being washed overboard. Rushton also claimed he was a nuclear physicist, a naval commander, and had been knighted for saving the Queen's life. Mathew, who was married to Rushton for five years, believed him because he was a "good talker..." but those pesky microtremors finally gave him away...

An off-duty police officer in Newark, NJ, had a pistol-shaped cigarette lighter, which he had been using all night while drinking at a local tavern. After many hours and drinks, he apparently mistook his 32 revolver for the lighter. When he went to light his cigarette, he shot and killed John Fazzola, who was seated 5 stools away at the bar...
