“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”

Sometimes, there are just no words. Please pray for the victims and their families.

How in the world is she going to take care of these fourteen children? No one can answer because she doesn't know herself. She's unemployed, her mother is tired, and rightfully so, her father is probably tired too. I believe she's counting on the kindness of strangers. How can you make a conscious decision to have, as my grandmother would say, "a whole gang" of children, when you have no idea how you're going to take care of them? She laughingly said "It takes a village to raise a child", then laughed about how she was going to need a lot of villages! I swear, I want to smack her cheeky ass. She doesn't even know how she's going to feed them. She invited any authority to visit her home at any time, so they can see the love. Does she really believe that's all it takes? Love is not going to feed, clothe, educate and keep a roof over these fifteen people. If that were the case, we wouldn't have all these homeless families. I'm sure love they love each other. This just burns me up.
Okay, now I am looking at pictures of this crazy wench as a child. She was a cute little girl, and...
I TOLD y'all those were not her lips! (Oh, yes I heard her deny it to the producers. That is a fuggin lie.) You know what else? I don't think that's her original nose. I'm telling you, she's trying to morph into Angelina but she just looks like a freakshow, with her crazy a$$. She was pretty before she did all that to herself. Why don't people leave well enough alone?
Ann Curry said that Suleman was not paid for this interview.
This is neither here nor there, but the children are just beautiful.
This is not finished unfolding, and I suspect it's going to be ugly.Pray for these children, and their crazy assed, trifling mama.
To be continued.
Well, the Royal Sonesta Hotel started a tradition that's now practiced all along Bourbon Street. Each year, at the start of Mardi Gras, there is a pole-greasing ceremony, where containers of petroleum jelly are brought out on trays. The jelly is then scooped out by costumers and rubbed up and down the pole to ensure separation of the wild people on the ground from the wild people in the balcony. The pole rubbing is very dramatic - glean from that whatever you will, or view it here:
Have you ever experienced Carnival partying from a balcony? How about in the Quarter? What is your favorite Mardi Gras experience?
For those of you who have never experienced Mardi Gras but may be curious, what would you like to know about the holiday? I will answer your questions accurately and to the best of my abilty.

Say it ain't so!
Me? Oh, I had stuff to do and didn't have time to sit and chill.
Maybe next weekend.

Earlier today, as I was loading groceries onto the belt, my innocent looking cashier asked me if I was using food stamps. I replied politely oh no, debit card. Then she proceeds to talk about how high the prices are at this store (Winn-Dixie). She said she rings people up and they always complain about how high the prices were. I replied, yes but I don't have a choice so there you go! So she proceeds to scan my groceries and I glance at the screen and see 98.00 something. All of a sudden, after a few more scans it went to 140 or 150. I'm wondering about what I have on the belt that costs so much. I scan the totals and see and entry for AMEX - 55.00, and I asked her about it. She picks up an Am Express gift card and asked me was it my card. I told her no. She said "Oh, I'll delete it", and takes it off the bill. I was soooooo suspicious at that point and she was very uneasy. I finished, paid my bill, checked my receipt and left. I will call that store and report that but felt I would wait a day so as to not reveal who might have reported her.No telling how many people they have scammed. She would have added that in and if I did not check the screen or receipt, had a card loaded with 50.00 at my expense. If a customer called after going home and denied ever getting a card, they would never believe it. AND TRUST ME, I looked, and there was NO PLACE around the register for it to FALL ON THE BELT and it WAS NOT ON THE BELT WHEN I LOADED MY GROCERIES! They are up to NO GOOD! This is SHAMEFUL.....
This morning, I had a leisurely breakfast as I perused the newspaper and viewed a Mardi Gras documentary on our local PBS affilliate,WYES, and it put me in the mood for some Mardi Gras music. So, I put said music in my stereo cd player couldn't get that to play, either. I was pissed! It has to be a dirty cd/cd player.
It's a beautiful day: cool temperatures and bright sunshine. I have simple tasks to accomplish today, but who knows what this day holds?
What are you doing today?
