You Killed Chivalry, You Bastard! Pt1

In XX Edition: About the Girls on 14 September 2011 at 12:22 am

I don’t think that men actually get it. I mean, the fastest ways to piss me off is to not act your age and to stab Chivarly in the back in my presence. Yes, a tad bit dramatic… I get it, but I am fed up with it. Why couldn’t I have been born 50 years before my time. I would rather have fought Jim Crow than to squabble with Dumbasses. Trust me, this is not an exaggeration… white man…. call me nigger.  I honestly could take that over my own black supposed king calling me bitch.

Where is this stemming from, you ask? So there is this “guy”. I could say sooooooooooo much right now but I am choosing not to as not to set his whole entire village on fire. Fuck burning the bridge, I want to set his future grandkids on fire! He irks the shit out of me in ways that I didnt even know that I could be disturbed. I mean… I have had thoughts of fucking him up. I keep trying to give him a chance because I already know that I am crazy, but there is no helping this fucker in my presence.

So today, I woke up feeling horrible. I was supposed to spend the night at his house (TRUST ME THERE WAS NO SEX GOING ON UNLESS HE RAPED ME!). But, I knew that I would want to come home and get some rest after blogging about The Braxtons  and Sinbad so I called and asked if we could reschedule. I was respectable. But as the day went by I started to feel a little bit better…. took meds….and then said I could come over for a little bit but not stay the night. So we are kicking it…..

Sinbad~ Get it Back on the Air!

Episode 3: Road to Health

Episode 4: Burn It Up

Episode 5: Bang, Bang Goes the Hobby

Episode 6: Fix It Yourself

I know what you all are wondering. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO SINBAD’S SHOW?!

Well, I did some investigative work and I went and found out the answer. Okay…. I went straight to Sinbad and asked….lol. I asked Sinbad if I missed something, and basically…what happened to the show. He informed me that I was not going crazy, I didn’t miss any thing. The show is merely waiting on the news that will tell them whether they have been renewed or not. Basically….they are waiting on the station’s powers that Be to allow them back on the air.

I don’t know about you…. but I WANT THE SHOW BACK ON THE AIR!!!! To say that I was ecstatic to see Sinbad, period, back on television was too much for me to handle….seeing his entire family was enough to make me clear my schedule to sit and watch it when I should have been in bed asleep. And I know what you are thinking, I just want to see Royce back on the air, but TRUST ME……that is true. But I want to see the entire family back on. It is as if they are teasing me with the episodes they graced us with and then they took it away.

So, if you want to see Sinbad:It’s Just Family back on the air….. hit up the survey below…leave a comment. I will make sure that Sinbad see’s it and try to get the people who decide that the show comes back on see’s it too. Hell, if it can work for The Game we can do it for Sinbad. So…..let’s get to work. Thanks.

SIncerely,

Episode 5: Bang, Bang Goes the Hobby

So, been missing in action, trying to get my health back. But you know what they say, Laughter is the best medicine. LEt’s go!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, #LaughDamnIt

Okay, so did SInbad know ahead of time that he would be coming on after The Braxtons? Because he just mentioned it in is opening monologue…..creepy! lol.  

LMAO!!! Sinbad said, You cant plan when you work with family members. True. And I HOPE that the way that Paige walked away from her mother in the parking lot during this opening scene was scripted because that was so rude and disrepestful. I know that she was raised better.

Man, his picture at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston is HUGE!!! lol. Sinbad looks so flywhen he has his glasses and hat on. Seeeeeexy! I wonder how much that announcer got paid just to announce Sinbad…lol.

I’m still trying to figure out what the big deal is about Royce vs. Sinbad and this guesthouse.

Awwwww, Paide telling her father hose much she appreciates him is soooo precious. LMAO!!! Sinbad fell asleep on her.

LMAO!!! Sinbad sitting up on the couch almost made me hurt myself…lol.

Waaaaaaait! Sinbad gave Royce the MASTER bedroom at the old house?!!!!! And the story that Royce explain what happened to the showerhead in the guesthouse cracked me up! lol.  And then Sinbad locked him in the bathroom for 2.5 minutes!!! lmao!!! And Royce stayed!!! lmao! I’m done! hahahahahahahahahaahahah!

Wait… so people can get paid to be a Social Networker?!!!!! Can I sign up?!!!! I would SOOOO become a millionaire off of that job. Wow….who knew! I personally dont think that what Paige said about the business cards was disrespectful to Meredith. I just think that Meredith was embarrassed by it and that is where the offense came from. Also, woman… you could hit up Vista Print for a thousand business cards for $50….lol. Check that out for a budget plan, right. So I knew I was seeing things with that opening snippet of this scene.

Wait… was the girl on the beach texting and biking? Really? Is there not a law against that? lmao

Okay, soooo I figured it out. 90 percent of Sinbad’s show is off the cuff and 10 percent is scripted. For instance, this hardware store scene with the lady and the “plumbing ripoff” scenario. Scripted!

But all in all, I really do love this show! I pray it comes back for a second season because I look forward to my daily dose of Sinbad and his family.

SIncerely,

Okay, so I was sick yesterday when this came on and stayed home from work to get better… so pardon me for this being late. I promise you I am trying to get better.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, #LaughDamnIt

Okay. I want a silent drumset like Sinbad has. Actually… I want a way to silence my Sax so I can play it in the house without annoying my roomie. My sax would echo through our wholehouse and down the driveway.

But I do agree with Sinbad saying that you need to have a hobby. I ot angry this past year when I wasnt performing poetry. I need to get back ot being happy. So, yes, Meredith needs to go find a hobby.

It is soooo random when Sinbad walks up and starts talking to the camera. And he was one consonant away from NOT saying Get the FUNK out…lol.

WOW!!!!! Meredith’s firned, Karla, can she bemy friend? I want to go shoot up some stuff at the gun range. lol.I feel some kind of way about karla walking in stilettos in the middle of the dessert…lol. Poor Meredith looks like she was going to drop the gun a couple oftimes. And when she turns around to look back at them… I would have ducked because she wasnt holding that gun right…lol. But I am sooo proud of her and happy that she is happy. You can tell she is having fun and she is lighting up while she is talking about it. YOU GO, MEREDITH!!!

Sidebar:  Meredith and Karla look so young!!!! What are they doing?! Is it the guns?

Okay, as sexy as Royce is…. I remember his age every time he asks Sinbad for advice…lol. And that is not a bad thing, it just keeps me free of stalking charges. It just lets me know that he didnt think this whole ” Travel to Thailand and fight people who have been trained since the testies to kill people” idea. 

And yeh, I wonder how scared Sinbad was when he realized that Meredith took up shooting….lol. LMAO!!! He said ” remind me not to thank her” . hahahahahahahaha. Too funny!!!! Sinbad said that he now knows where the violence comes fromin this family….lol.  “Turned on & scared” hahahahahah This man is a nut!! The two of them taking the shooting range paper upstairs to the bedroom is priceless!!! And I think I peed myself when he went upstairs and theymade the sound effect of being shot and he yelled out! lol.

Damn, Master Sayed just flipped it on Royce….lol. “You never showed mehow to do that!”lmao! WasRoycerunning at one point? lmao!!! And I dont want to say it….buuuuuuuut scripted. HOT…but scripted.

Ummmm…. I am worried about Meredith in this gun shop right now…lol. I LOVE HER! DId SInbad just ask the gun shop guy if they had a Anti-husband lock on it…lol LMAO!!! Royce said that Meredith cant see…lmao!!!! This family cracks me up! Paige said she was scared to say no to her mother’s getting a gun….lol.

Yes, I too will die reaching for something.

Wait… is that a purple tablet? I want one like Paige.

AWESOME!! Trapeze act? Truth be told… I couldnt do it. I would just have to be scared….lol. Watching Mereidth squatting but not jumping off the trapeze ledge is enough to make me hurt myself.  LMAO!!!!!! She just hung on and didnt let go….lmao! I cant take it!!!! Sinbad did it like a pro! And then he quotes Hamlet…lol… Get thee to a trapeze!

I love how Paige and Royce working together. Even how they play off of one another in the side interviews is hilarious and rare.

I LOVE PAIGE’S VOICE!!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!! Not bring the girlfriend, the one you dont have….lol. Wait, who is THIS CHICK that Royce brought with him?!!!!!! Is THIS how I have to find out that he is cheating on me?!!! I’m crushed. Damn near crying……well, that’s why you got your butt whooped by Master Sayed! LMAO!!! Paige’s face when introduced to Nicole had me dying laughing.

LMAO!!!! Why is Sinbad called Memphis Red…lmao!!!! I am dying laughing!!!!! Oh this should be put on Youtube…lol. The split screen…smdh…hahahahaha. Wait! Sugar in the grits?

Cant wait til next week! Let’s go!

In short…. I’m ready to laugh at Sinbad,  envy Paige’s clothing, admire Meredith , and drool over Royce.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, #LaughDamnIt

Okay, sooooo I was too busy watching the beginning of this episode to be inspired to write about it. Sooooo they are not cleaning bathrooms and going shopping for a new grill. YIPEE!!!

Wait… there is a place called Barbeque Galore?!!! I want to go there.

LMAO!!!!!!!!! Did he just do the man card speech?! hahahahahaha *rewind*

Okay, Paige finding the snake…. NOT SCRIPTED!!! I thought I saw her heart beat her body back in the house…lol.  And I LOVE how Royce did the slow, cool man jog away from the snake! He started off in a fast sprint and then remembered he had a rep to protect and then slowed it down. hahahaha He even bit his lip just like Sinbad…lmao!!! He lost some cool points on that one…hahahahahahahahahaha. LMFAO!!!!!!!!!! Sinbad took off in a face hustle like he had Royce’s knees….lmao! I never saw Sinbad move that fast in my life…lmao! OUCH!!! Cramp in my side!!!! OUCH!!! lmao!!!! Royce took off running after they put the snake in the bag! hahahahah.

Sidebar: When did it become okay to capture a snake on your own? What? I’m just saying.

-” You killin me Sinbad”

- “Yeh, but you aint dead yet!”

LMAO!!! Sinbad is haggling this dude so hard that my side still hurts from the snake scene.

*Yummy* Penuches sound sooooo good! I would make some penuches, but then that would go against all of this work that I have put into exercising the past two days.

LMAO!! So why did Sinbad say, “When Royce becomes a husband. Oh, God”? Can’t the man be betrothed to me!!!!?

CHEATER!!! Paige has just sabotaged her mother’s Penuche batch! CHEATER!

LMAO!!! Royce and his double complimenting cracks me up!!!

LMAO!!!! The dude with like 8 burgers between one bun! lmao! He told Sinbad, “Lucky I didnt get six”lmao!

Sinbad’s mother, Louise, is still BEAUTIFUL!!! She looks just the way that she did in his comedy special.  Rev. Adkins may want to back away from the grill before Sinbad pulls a Pepsi on him.

LMAO!!! Sinbad said the ribs jumped over the back of the grill because it wasnt dead…lmao!!!

*Yummy* Royce in a red shirt….again.

Wait?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Monty is back? When did Monty come back? I thought that they broke up. Not saying that I want them to * side eye* but I would have remembered when his fine behind came back.

WHO IS THE FINE DUDE WITH THE HAT ON THE BASS/GUITAR NEXT TO SINBAD?!!!!!

This was great to see his friends and family with him. I loved it!

Episode 1: It’s Just Family

Episode 2: Funny Money

So, last week I loved the show and I still love the show….but I caught some discrepancies and had to call them out. So I recognized Willie from BET’s College Hill and the girl he was with was suppose to be his wife. Well……it is an entire week later and the thread just keeps on unraveling. The girl who was with Willie portraying his wife was named Cecily. As luck would have it… I am watching Elgin Charles’ show onVh1 called Beverly Hills Fabulous when in walks this woman named Cecily. SMDH. I was staring at her like, where do I know her from? Her face looks oddly familiar. And then Sean, the hairstylist says, “My client, Cecily, is a matchmaker.” DING! Woman, weren’t you on Sinbad’s show It’s Just Family  last week? Damn, she gets around! But I can’t knock her hustle…just need them to spread out their reality show appearances more than they are currently exercising.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, #LaughDamnIt

Hmmmm… just watched the intro. I wonder what size Paige wears? Because I want to become a shoe buddy and borrow her shoes. They are always so cute!!!!

Okay, soooo Scott, Sinbad’s agent….hmmm. So, do all actors have to get a physical in order to be considered to work? Then WTF kind of physical did Charlie Sheen have to take? lmao!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So Scott asked if Sinbad wanted a male or a female physician to come and check him for a physical and Sinbad replied, “It doesn’t matter; female.” lmao!!! Classic! And Sinbad told the physician to lie to his family about his blood preassure…lmao! But in all honesty, I need to look more into my own blood pressure.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Sinbad said, “Since this is a woman’s network, I think that I should get a pap smear on a regular basis……even though I dont even have a pap.” LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where was this man found?!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m gonna get fired!!! I think that was the joke of the century!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahahahahah!

I’m about to go to the grocery store in just a minute…. they are making me feel bad!!! *eats Jelly Belly*

Wait? There is a HOME prostate check? Yes, I too would be mortified like Paige if my father asked me to help him with a home prostate exam. lmao! Sinbad asked them to look at his fingernails and asked if he could hurt himself. lmao!!! LMAO!! Meredith is hilarious during this whole thing as well. The whole ” lubricate your area” conversation is enough to get me fired.  LMAO!!! The conversation with Sinbad saying he can’t find it…. smdh! LMAO!!! I’m done.. I can’t laugh any harder…lmao!

Ummmmmm I’m trying to remain holy while I watch Royce beat this dude up… but forgive me Father, for I continue to sin. *rewinds* Yep, still sinning.In all honesty, he is really good at this martial arts and combat execution. I wonder if he needs a combat partner. *Raises hand and falls on mat*

Sidebar:  I wonder how many track suits does Sinbad own?

And Royce is even sexier without the glasses…..correction….a different kind of sexy. 

WOW! This acupuncturist has Sinbad’s face looking like dude off of Hell Raiser….that was the movie with the dude with all of the needles in his face, right? And the scene where the chiropractor is adjusting his spine cracks me up. It looks like we walked on a Cinemax late night special called Sinbad, Paulo & a chiro table. lol.

LMAO!!!! Sinbad said that the secret to healthy eating as you get older is “If it tastes good, spit it out” lmao! I love this man.

Wait….. chef Same Bell walked into the room and I damn near forgot about Royce until they zoomed in on him eating an apple on the counter. The chef is one fine piece of beautiful man candy. AND he can cook!!!!!!!!!!!!! Royce, honey…. I don’t think that you and I are working out. I think we need some time apart… at least to the end of this chef’s segment and then we can try to work out our difference.

Man, when Chef Bell threw away all of that food… my inner fat chick cried. I think I will have to eat a chicken wing in honor of all that wasted food…lol.

LMAO! The body builder prayer…lmao!

I LOVE watching Meredith actually keep up with Regina the fitness trainer.  I want to be fit like Meredith when get to be her age…..whatever it is because I can’t tell… she looks amazing. Remember people, black doesn’t crack! But Sinbad cracked me up when he said ” don’t let the kids know we hurt” as they were leaving to hip hop class…lol.

Yeh…. this show is a keeper. You laugh, you learn, and you witness a family. I read a caption earlier where someone called Sinbad’s family the New Cosby Show. I have to agree.So thank you for making us laugh….laughter is good for your health too.

SIncerely,

Episode 1: It’s Just Family

        So, Last week was the BEST blog week in the history of me blogging. Yes, you read that correctly and no, I am not exaggerating. Two things happened:

        1. My blog about Sinbad was the highest read blog out of any of my blogs to date. Yes, 312 people read that one blog in one day! That blog is still the top read blog in the days following its post. The people have spoken….Sinbad is the best.

        2. I tweeted Sinbad ( hopefully it was him and not an assistant) and causally mentioned my blog, provided a link, and preceeded with the words “Check this out” . lol. Well, HE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not lying to you.

        Sorry for the blury pic, but I was trying to take a pic on the sneak tip. Yes, I will cherish this til the day that I die. I dont think that you fully understand what has occurred here. One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE COMEDIANS…… CALLED ME FUNNY! *faints*

        lol. Okay, all drama aside, I really am touched. Whether he meant I was literally funny or figureatively, I dont give a flying Sarah Palin with painted on crosshairs…he called me funny! It does something to me. I really did take those words to heart, and I could be taking it too far, and blowing it all out of proportion… but you’re just jealous he didnt call you funny. *sticks out tongue* Okay…. I guess I can move on to another topic. I just had to share that with the entire blog world. *Sigh* Again, I can die happy.

        Now, if the rest of the world is ready to see Sinbad and his family……sit back and get ready. And if the rest of the    ladies are ready for Royce, like I am…..bring out the fans to fan yourself.  FYI. I hope to hear Paige sing this episode. I guess I could just go to her website that was mentioned in the last episode, hmmm.  What was it again? *Googles* JustPaige.com.

        Okay, first off… I envy tall women who can look beautiful and rock confidence. Most of the times they tell us we have to starve ourselves in order to be tall and beautiful… but Paige is definitely working this pic on the banner of her website. And the one with her hair swooped back ( bio page) with the white spousal abuse top on, that is a Cover Girl ad if I ever saw one!  YOU BETTER WORK IT, WOMAN! And yes, you read correctly, spousal abuse shirt (it is my attempt at being politically correct. I dont believe in beating just your wives.. I believe in equality when it comes to  domestic abuse attire. P.S. These are just jokes, people). Now, as I sit here listening to Sick N’ Tired off her new album Imperfect Me, I am trying to figure out who she sounds like… and I’ve got nothing. I dont think that is a bad thing, I think that is a great thing… totally original. So far I am feeling Need You To Love Me, I Don’t Know, & Friend.  And while I am at it, Silly Girl’s intro is killing me softly. Look At Me Now, no relation to Chris Brown’s Version, may be my new anthem…..if only I could hear more of the song…but the 5 second snippet was cool. My only problem with the site is that the music section gives too much of the intro music and not enough Paige. I mean, Is It Me never even got to her voice. Sometimes the voice & chorus are what makes us decide if we want to buy the album. SO just a little bit and maybe even the chorus as a sample. But who am I, right? Just saying.

Oh yeh…. right…. the show.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #LaughDamnIt!

        In the famous words of Will Smith’s character Hancock, “I’ve been drinking, Bitch”. So yeh, I straight up missed the first half of this. So I will have to watch this half and then go back and watch the first half.*Rewind sound effects*

        Sinbad is having a yard sale? I mean, he did have a ton of stuff, but it would only be fair for the entire HOUSE to have a yard sale…lol. Question: Why call it a yard sale if the yard itself never gets sold? What? Dont judge me! I think that it is a legitimate question.

LMAO!!! The afro sheen blowout kit! lmao!!!! Where do they even sell that any more? hahahahahaha

        OUCH!!! I need to wear Depends while watching this show. It should be a crime to pee on yourself when you laugh so hard.  But the way that Sinbad said BB King‘s wife would get shot if she put Lucille out at a yard sale….lmao! I would wear my pee pants out in the street proudly if someone laughed as hard as I did and wanted to share our urinary issues with the world…lol. Just call me Pissy Pants Deep! lmao *POW*

        LMAO! And the way Meredith hi-jacked her clothes back from the yard sale hurt me, too. I may have a weak bladder because this show cant be this funny. She told the lady who wanted to buy her jackets to let it go and to follow Sinbad…lol.

And Paige sold Sinbad! lmao! That was funny.

        LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sinbad has a “new” knee! lmao! Who says that.?Wow… 2 knee replacements. My knee is tingling just hearing that. LMAO! And the camera men are hilarious!!!! He said their cue to leave was when he kissed his wife goodnight & it was freaky to have them there and he was about to test what they were made of. Hell, he may want to try them…that’s how we all know Kim Kardashian…but I dont think that Meredith would be down with that. Call me a psychic….but I’ve got a good feeling that it wouldnt go down like that…lmao

        HOLD UP!!!!!  Okay… if I thought that this show was scripted last week…I know for a damn fact it is scripted this week!!!!! So, the fan that won a dinner date with his wife, Cecily, and Sinbad is named WIllie. Take a trip with me, will ya. Now, as an avid television watcher, I remember a BET reality series called College Hill…and one of those season they were in the Caribbean. Well, you guessed it…Willie was one of the dudes from Cali who was on that season. Yuo remember the season… the one where teh spoiled Cali girl bussed Vaness, the Caribbean girl, in her forehead with a 4inch heel. Remember, he was the only dude who didnt have a girl in the house. He was trying to compete with Chidi for Vanessa? And then a year or two after the show ended he was in Scary Movie or some other parody movie. Yeh, all that to say….how in the hell did your daughter sell you to people that we already know in the industry who dont even live in your same damn neighborhood? *Tamar lip pout to the side* (yes, that was a Braxton reference). But…. scripted or not… I love the show. Just dont play with my level of intelligence. Don’t worry… I wont tell anyone what I know….lol. But Willie’s afro is ten times smaller. And now he is married?….hmmmm.Well, congrats. He wasnt able to get a woman on the show, but he got one in real life…lol. And I see he still likes the light skinned women.

        Okay, so did Willie really just ask to be on the road with Sinbad? Umm… Sinbad called me funny and you dont see me trying to headline his next show…lmao. Okay, really Cecily…did you just say that this was your anniversary? *Blank stare* *Side eye* And this joke that Willie told flopped so hard. And then they are pretending to fight in front of us….I feel punked. Sinbad just punked us all. We all thought that this was a reality TV show. Sinbad did this to prove a point.  You want to know why I KNOW it is off…because the editing people fudged up and had a scene of her going off on him with her jacket on…then two scenes later she is leaving and comes back for her coat. Y’all KNOW I knit pick small stuff like that for a living. Again, dont test my level of inteligence~~~ This is a reality sitcom. Yep, Sinbad has invented a new genre of television. I coined it first, so I want my 15%!

        Wait… Royce gets a brand new car? I am trying to figure this out……y’all had a yard sale and now Royce gets a car? Okay.. yeh, he is fine…but a new car. And then an F150? I have an Expedition, so I am semi-partial here….but why an F150? Is he planning on lugging things around in the back? But, I guess you like what you like. And yes, Sinbad, I know what cars cost these days… I paid for mine in full off the lot…. WOWZERS! What a price tag. I could have put a down payment on a house with that kind of money…lmao.LAWD! Did Sinbad just pull out the President’s Fiscal Budget in a Glad ziplock bag? lmao!!! If that isn’t hood rich, I have no clue what is. lmao! Let me find out Sinbad has street cred…lol.

        Okay, so, I love the dresses that Paige is picking out. I mean,  like I said above, I love the fact that she is tall and beautiful. But did Paige just say that Royce get cars & she cant get a dress?! Really?! WOW! Talk about being the favored kid. But I wonder where her performances are. I love the outfit that she finally settled on. It was as if I asked for this episode this morning and the universe gave it to me. I mean really, didn’t I ask for Paige to sing this episode? Yeh, I am psychic….lol. I wonder what song this is.  YES,!!!!!!!! Sick N’ Tired!!!! I told you that I like this song! Paige’s voice rocks. Yes… I want to download this as soon as I get back to my own laptop.  My new anthem…….cant say what I want to say because the person that I want to sing this song too… I’m using his computer…lmao! Just kidding….to an extent…lol.

        Wait!lmao! Did Sinbad say ” I’ve never lived large; I’ve lived medium” lmao! And IRS still came and got his stuff…lmao! No judgement, just saying. LMAO! I’m going to Sinbad’s house to borrow some software. lol. Damn, Sinbad is 54?!!!! I’m getting old as hell!

        And I am really, really, really trying to listen to this entire “family pulling together in a crisis” speech, but I cannot help but stare at Royce through this whole thing. I may wish to stop drooling over this handsome piece of man candy because I dont want Sinbad to use me as a prime example of a “scrimmage woman”. But Jesus…if I was 8 years younger… I would kidnap him on his way to class. lol.

        LMAO!!! What is going on with this end scene? lol. He really did not just ask who let him in his house…lol. This is why I love SInbad. Funny.

Next Week: I believe what Sinbad said… he said that he doesn’t have to be in shape because his stunt guy has to be.lol. I need a life stunt double. Hmmm… next week is going to be funny. I cant wait.

WOW!!!! Sinbad has a show!!!!

First off…. Royce is gorgeous!!!! Damn!!!! How old is he? Because yeh, he can get it. *licks lips* And he looks JUST LIKE SINBAD!! *sigh* I still need to figure out how old he is before I get arrested!

In the wake of all the news that I have received today, my soul is shaking and so is my faith, so God knew exactly what I needed because he brought this show to me today.

And wow! Sinbad, re-married his wife Meredith…okay, his ex-wife . Wow… yeh, wow is going to be my word for this episode.  But watching the two of them together is HILARIOUS!!!

Paige….sooooo I am trying to figure out who she looks like. Hmmm… she looks like her mother, I think.

YES!!!! Royce is 22!!!!!!!!!! *Orders a box of condoms!*

LMAO!!! Sinbad talking about how he wants to wear adult diapers so he can pee on himself to get the kids out of the house. lmao! I laughed so hard that I think I had a hernia. LMAO! And how he is talking about these boxes that Meredith tripped over is making me pee on myself. And hims talking about the Porsche that Meredith received as a gift from Sinbad 15 years ago but never drove…..smdh! I swear he is hilarious!!! I can’t take it! I am going to wind up hurting myself just by laughing at this damn show! lol.

I am already in a good mood after watching a few scenes and the show has only been on for 16 minutes.

DAMN that is a gorgeous car! lmao! No, it doesn’t have an old school car phone.  Sinbad didn’t ask for his platform shoes back.  Wow… is he like that all the time? I really am loving this show!!! I think I found a new show to permanently blog about.

LMAO!!! The way that Royce hi-jacked the laptop is sooooo funny! Wait, and then Paige came in too….lol. I swear I feel like it is scripted, but either way it is still funny. I don’t even care if it is scripted. LMAO!did Sinbad say that everybody got a booty!! HE said that even white women got a booty out of nowhere all of a sudden…lmao!!! I think I peed on myself!!!

Sidebar: I remember watching a Sinbad comedy special when I was around 10 years old, it was the one where he does the belt joke. And I was sitting on the couch and unbeknown to me my puppy had peed in front of the couch. Sinbad told the joke about how his mom whooped him and he woke up some time later and I laughed so damn hard that I rolled off the couch and face first into the puppy pee. Yes, TMI, I know…. but that had to be said. Because Sinbad is a comical genius and I missed him. Seeing him reminds me of the good moments of my childhood. So, glad that he is back.  And yes, I did watch The Apprentice, but that was different, this is him in his own element.

LMAO!!! I forgot to write, I was watching Sinbad…..waaaaaaaaait! Monty! HALLELUJAH!!! Okay, Paige, you know how to pick them. I applaud your choice in men. *shivers* Yummy!

Grids: Kids who are not grown but over the age of 20. lmao Sinbad’s new word.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And now Sinbad is talking about frustrating his kids is the fastest way to get kids out o your house.

LMAO!! Sinbad said there is a type of woman that he calls a scrimmage woman…lmao! This game doesn’t count. lmao! I need Sinbad to be my dad….lol. But I bet you that he didn’t tell Paige that.

LMAO!!! Did he just say that he was homeless in his own house. And the way that his family is bothering him…..you cannot tell me that was real. I mean, especially Meredith. No disrespect…..but I was annoyed watching her interrupt him.  But watching them talk about their intimacy at the end cracked me up!! lol…lol

I will DEFINITELY be watching this show.

Sincerely,

200 Men Said….Let a Man be a Man

In 200 Men Said.... on 8 March 2011 at 12:02 am

        So, recently I wrote 2 blogs An Independent Woman’s Place [<~Click Here] and [Click Here~>] Deuces Dos & Donts, and the answers that I got back from them had a lot in common; Let the Man be a Man. WTF!? I have no clue what that means. I am just being honest. People say it all the time, but is there a Wikipedia page about letting a man be a man? Is it different in different cultures? Should the woman go by her culture or learn what that means in her man’s culture? Can you upgrade it? Find it on Amazon? WHAT!!!? You can’t come at me all ambiguous and what not. Didnt you tell me that one of the things that women need to do is to communicate EXACTLY what we are thinking because you can’t read our minds? Guess what…this doesn’t mean what you think it means. So, what does it REALLY mean to “let a man be a man”?

        Okay…I’m a big girl, I can admit when I need help. So, I needed help trying to figure out what this meant. Because in all honesty, in woman code, this translates to “Shut up woman and fix me some food”. You might as well call me a bitch and put me in geisha make-up. The phrase almost implies that a woman has the power to stop you from being a man, which then suggests the question of “why should I be with you if I can stop you from being a man?”. No, don’t shoot the messenger… I’m just saying…this phrase is looking a little swiss cheese-ish to me.

        Well, when I hear it I speculate that he means that he needs to be in control at that moment, or that I have stepped on his manhood a little too much. That is all I can do….. speculate. But… I also think that there are several different ways to let a man be a man, and each one is a sign of how much of a man the woman is dealing with. For instance, my godmother has this way of politely saying my godfather’s name that will shut the sentence down and change the topic. She was letting him be the man, in my opinion, but not embarrassing him nor letting him embarrass himself. He still got to maintain his pride. I have never , and I mean NEVER seen her raise her voice at him. Now what goes on in the privacy of that bedroom when you hear her call his name politely down the hall….that is on them. I am sure they have had disagreements… I have never seen it. The one thing that I have caught by accident is when my dad left his wallet at home after she reminded him to get it, he didn’t. So we’re at the restaurant and he is entertaining friends and family and the check comes. My mother knew what was about to happen, and I saw her playing around in her purse and then she slipped her credit card under the table and into his lap under his hand without missing a beat. THAT was letting my father remain a man so that he could place the card on the table and pay the bill. But, in letting him be a man, she had to be a woman to see what was needed and assist him. I have a STRONG feeling that guys around my age don’t see that as the definition of Letting a Man be a Man. So I asked them.

I asked my 200 Men…..

On my last question I saw pretty much the same response. What does “let the man be the man” mean to you and what should a woman do, or not do, to let the “man be the man”? 

        And since I never read the comments until I come back through to edit the formatting of the post…. I have no clue what you are about to read. The 200 Men Said….

  • Danny P: All of this isn’t this complicated. When it’s right, the two involved in the relationship are who they are and the couple is still one. All this [means is] let [it] be [the way in] which [it] is… if [letting] the person be who they are is [them being a ] cheating fool or something… well uh duh
  • Allen Ozark:   ??? not sure.
  •  Nigi “Pistol Star” Pu Yi: Its means, let the man think he’s in control even if you’re in control. Also, all duties that are designed for a man…let him do them even if you’re better. Eventually, if he’s a real man he’ll admit that you’re better at whatever and come to you for assistance, and rightfully so. [2Deep: This man never ceases to amaze me. But let him be in control even when he isnt.....isnt that lying? lol. Okay, Lie to my man. Check!]
  • DSMILEY1: Let the man be the man: in charge of houses chores like cutting the grass & washing the cars. Sometimes its good to switch out but [it] wouldn’t be the same
  • : !: it means if you have a Real Man, he leads the household in decisions..basically the King..but that doesn’t mean he is a tyrant. He should listen to advice from his wife and make good decisions. Basically, the way the Bible portrays it.
  • Lateef25:  maybe not nag so much about what you want. just tell him in a nice way or let it go
  • Kycajrome L: I believe [it] comes from the Old school archetype of when the Man was the provider and fixer of everything in the household…depending how a man was raised some still hold those values ,times are a little diff, but old or new ,Respect is what a MAN wants
  • on the rocks…: that statement is self explanatory.far be it for a man to explain what it is to be a man.especially to woman these days. they seem to have their own blueprint for us.lol ..check every 3rd female profile and it’ll have a laundry list of what a “REAL” man is

        Now you all know that I wasnt going to just STOP at some of these answers. So some side conversations came from them and they went a little something like this:

  • Vince V: I think that those answers are coming from men who feel insecure about their position in the household and basically wants the woman to run everything through him and let him have the final say so in what goes on in their relationship. when in my opinion a secure man who has good communication with his partner would trust his woman to be able to act as an extension of him to make good decisions with both his and her best interest at heart , but communication being the key. [2Deep: I simply love this answer.... he can stay...lmao]
  • Me: Sooooooooooo I noticed you said that a “woman to be able to act as an extension of him” What does that mean? And why cant it be the other way around? Just playing devil’s advocate here
  • Vince V: ok miss devil’s advocate….lol   Traditionally the man would always be considered the head of the household because he was the bread-winner. but as times have changed and women have become less dependent on men; whether it be cause of equality between men and women, or financial responsibilities within a relationship. the level of the playing field has evened out, and either one could be considered the “head”. but sticking with tradition, even though the field is even, with the male being the head; any actions performed by the woman would be considered “okayed” by the man, to anyone outside that relationship. which would mean she was just doing it for him cause he cant get to it. Now it can work the other way around but then that would not be a traditional type relationship, plus then you might  have a man with a really hurt ego about holding up the appearance of being the man of the house.
  • Me: Soooooooo what is a woman not suppose to do without her man’s permission?
  • Vince V: have sex with someone else….j/k lol   a woman doesn’t need her man’s permission to do anything….but a woman or a man in a good relationship keeps open lines of communication with each other. especially when decisions that are to be made affect one another.
  • Me: Okay….so to let a man be a man is to keep an open line of communication with him. That’s it? ( I swear you’re gonna get sick of me…lol) But I am trying to make sure that I understand before I post it.
  • Vince V: no, to let a man be a man is to let him run everything and make all the decisions and don’t question the things that he does. but i would personally like having the input of my woman in every decision that i make for us, and vice versa .
  • Me: How is THAT being a man?!!! That sounds like a dictatorship!!!!! OH I SWEAR YALL WILL BE SINGLE FOR LIFE WITH THAT ATTITUDE!!! lmao
  • that is just the way life has traditionally put men with women. but like i said, as for me ,i like having the input of my woman cause i feel like it keeps us closer and more in touch with each other
  • Me: Gotcha! No prob….. I thought that you had great insight… My readers should hear it. Oh.. wait.. my fault. I didn’t let the man be the man. *submits* am I allowed to put your comment on my page? lmao!

        Vince V was my favorite response, but I simply had to post my comments from Chub L. He keeps me cracking up and yet he still knows when to be serious. So here are his responses:

  • Chub L: Let the man be the man – let him get that door etc… Let him do for you what you shouldn’t have to do for yourself as his queen.
  • Me: That was your answer…. so what am I not suppose to do for myself as his queen?
  • Chub L:In the world that we live in today – It’s basically everybody for themselves, but my queen shouldn’t have to get her own door, ever. Everything else is pretty much up for grabs. I don’t have a problem with a woman’s independence at all. Whatever my independent queen will allow me to do for her is gravy. No qualms here. I’m open-minded – we can get the darn door for each other.
  • Me: So, it really is that important to a man to feel needed in a relationship? But is it just with tangible things? Does a man ever feel the need to be needed emotionally? Meaning, if she doesn’t want you to get the door but needs you to hold her every night… would you feel like less of a man?
  • Chub L: Being emotionally needed is even more of a necessity. The Queen needs for her king to not only be her rock while she’s awake -but to rock her to sleep and all the more rock her while she’s asleep. It is for the good of both. If my queen is kept happy then hence I will also be kept happy.
  • So, then… why do you think so much emphasis is placed on a man doing tangible things versus him being there for her in the emotional times?
  • Chub L : I haven’t got a clue – I can only speak for me – I do both. Many swear that what one does or demonstrates declares what they feel. That is true BS – we as human beings still need to hear and feel what mere tangible things can never satisfy.

        Soooooooo are you still as confused as I am? I don’t want to be alone, so don’t leave me out here alone on Confusion Island. I mean, I get it…. but I don’t get it. So, as long as I allow my man to do “things” for me, then he feels like a man and all is gravy. So, I shouldnt have to touch a door in the presence of a man, pull out a chair, or cut my grass ( I don’t know, so I am halfway there), and let him make all of the decisions. I have a feeling that there is a gray area here that is in need of a dye job. It can’t be that friggin simple. So if I live by these few rules I am allowing my man to be a man? SWEET!

        Okay, all jokes aside. I think it all boils down to respect. Do I respect my man to hear him out when he verbalizes his needs? Do I validate him when needed? Does he have an equal part in this relationship? I think THAT is where his concerns lay. Anything else is a dictatorship and it isnt going to happen over here. Respect for Respect should be the basis on which this blog should be concluded to. And Scene.

200 Men Said….An Independent Woman’s Place

In 200 Men Said.... on 22 February 2011 at 12:02 am

        So, while on Twitter I asked some of my female followers to hit me up with questions that they wanted my 200 men to answer and I have several questions to ask until I die…lol. But one was in reference to the place of an independent woman in a relationship. Other questions trickled from that one question, but this post will be specifically about an independent woman in her relationship.

*Cues Ne-Yo‘s Miss Independent* or read yesterday’s blog Lyrically Speaking:Lyfe Jennings~Hero [<~Click to Read]

        Often times we hear how you have to be an independent woman, learn to stand on your own two feet, don’t rely on a man because all men are dogs yadda, yadda, yadda. Then on the flip side, we must learn how to Act Like a Woman, Think Like a Man. How can I when no one is wanting to give up the man code? lol. Just kidding. But in all seriousness…. the world, right on down to the Bible thumpers, would have you believing that in order to be in a committed relationship you must relinquish your feminine family jewels and trade them in for a hot stove, bare feet and Kate plus 8. How 50’s is that. My last name is NOT Stepford. So, are we allowing the world to tell females everywhere that they cannot excel in order to make a man’s ego feel at ease just to have a relationship? I hope not, because then I am going lesbian.

        There has to be a balance, right? There has to be a time where a woman can handle business like a strong and independent woman during the day and be able to submit to her man. Notice I said submit.. not bow down to, not stand behind, not be belittled by. I left my father’s house because I was grown… I BE DAMNED if I go into another man’s house and feel as if I can’t be the strong person that MY FATHER raised me to be in opposition of many of these knuckle heads. So, you actually have the good fathers to blame…lol. And yes, I know I am exaggerating, but if the exaggeration can be handled then everything else will be cleared up in its path as well.

So…. 200 Men were asked:

 Often times black women are made to feel bad for being independent women. Do you think that there is a place for an independent woman in a relationship w/ a man or does she have to change? 

        Ladies, back away from anything that has breath and high levels of testosterone. TRUST ME on this one. I havent even read the comments yet, I never read them before I write my part, so I have no clue what is going to be said.

My men responded with:

  • DSMILEY1: I like independent women because it makes us grow faster & makes life easier on choices we make together
  • Chub L: There is nothing wrong with being independent, but also allow a real man to be the man. Hey it’s truly a new day in our wonderful society for different levels off independence, but chivalry does not have to die in order for independence to live.
  • Kycajrome L: I almost want to say this is a silly question but, I know better, LOL so i’ll say if  [you're] independent you won’t feel bad about being you (with out an attitude)…if some else can’t handle it….
  • MIAMI’S SON IS BACK !!!:  are u serious !! you took the time to ask me that dumb ass question!! but its called self-esteem, meaning the esteem of ones self. so if you have to ask that question, then your not independent !!!! your a poor excuse of a person [2Deep: I had to rip him a new one separately. Funny how people assume that all of these questions are personally mine. I have women sending me questions on Twitter, and even if someone asks, it could be for research purposes and it doesn't make them dumb.. like this ass! That's why I am not going to correct his grammar errors. Because if you're going to call someone else dumb you might want to know how to use "you're"...lmao!]
  • !: Never a problem for an independent woman being in a relationship but when it comes to the household, she needs to realize the man is the head of household, it’s a reason God set it that way…just like in all other species. You [can't] have 2 leaders.
  • dorrance: yes but u have 2 make time for each other if not then, no, it wont work
  • DJ Urban Cowboy: I don’t think any [man] wants a woman who can’t support herself. There is little room to flaunt or boast your independence. If  [you're] so independent that you have to boast about it, then you don’t need your man.
  • Marcel: If a woman would allow herself to be made to feel in such a manner because of her independence then that is not at all a woman. A woman knows what its is in which she desires, wants and deserves.
  • Code Name Bigsexy: THERE IS ROOM.BUT I THINK THE WOMAN STILL HAS TO LET THE MAN BE THE MAN
  • Vince V: Yes there is a place for her. as long as she is not always throwing it up in the mans face like she doesnt need him for anything and vice versa. because that would be a lie. to make a “relationship” work it takes 2 people, being there for each other mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially. and no neither person should have to change period unless they want to for some reason. i embrace the independent black women. i think that Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx, and Fabolous state it best in Ne-Yo’s “Independent Remix”

 My FAVORITE ANSWER CAME FROM:

  • CHRIST- O: I DONT WANT A WOMAN THAT CANT STAND ON HER OWN. AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN HAS A GLOW ABOUT HER THATS WHY SHE STANDS OUT IN A CROWD. TWO INDEPENDENT PPL MAKE A GREAT COUPLE.

Get your glow on ladies!!!

Okay… so I lied.. I ended up reading this one as I was going back and editing. I love this one too:

  • Prestige “The One And Only”: She never has to change, a real woman will never have to compromise who she is naturally. Independent, stubborn, opinionated…is sexy and a black woman will and should remain such while still being able to allow a man to play his role as a provider.

(This comment sparked another question that will come up in a future blog. [Will post link Here])

        And of course, when a response catches my attention, I have to jump in and get clarification. So I began a conversation below:

  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: I know I’m late on this one but I had to really think on it… I don’t think there is anything wrong with an independent woman in or out of a relationship but I don’t think some woman should get into a relationship if they just feel like they don’t want someone they can lean on when they need too. Some women take it to a certain level that can sometimes make their man or anybody feel unnecessary…. Just for example, sometimes the simplest thing like allowing a man to open a door for them… I have experienced women who actually give off an attitude when I have tried to do things like that… And I’m like “Wow, you don’t even want your door opened? That makes you less independent?” And I just think women go overboard with the “Independent Woman” thing.
  •  Me: How are they going overboard?
  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: They are going overboard because they are starting to take men being polite and chivalrous as trying to impede on their independence. 
  • Me: Oh okay, so how does it make you feel when a woman does that? And how can she be independent and make her man feel validated at the same time?
  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: Everybody wants to feel needed by the person they are with and any real man would be impressed with a woman who can handle her own but if she makes him feel as though he is unnecessary that’s when it gets to be a problem… It’s the simple things… let him open a door, lift a box, yes a woman can do it for herself but a gentleman should never let her. I’m begging women in my life now to do their part in reviving and keeping chivalry alive.
  • Me:  So it makes you feel needed? And you like doing those things? Do you ever think to give her emotional support too? Or must it always be tangible things?
  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: I’m not in a relationship now… but when I was I was more than capable of giving emotional support… but try giving that to a woman who feels like she being babied if a man is just concerned about her. For example I may say “baby are you alright?” because I sense something is wrong with her… her response may be something like “don’t worry about me I’m gonna always be ok… So what am I here for if I don’t or can’t do anything for you?
  • So, That is a testament to the type of woman who you chose to be with… that is NOT an independent woman. That is a dysfunctional female…lmao!
  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: Well when they are addressed they identify themselves as independent woman… and if that the case I would hate to view every woman who came off  “overly independent” as “dysfunctional women” But I will if I have too…LOL Now on the other hand if you are implying that “independent women” as a whole have perfect balance we would have to agree to disagree and I would do so purely from my personal experiences.
  • Me: I disagree because a person who must announce does not or is not. You don’t go around on a daily basis shouting “I’m a Man!” So, if she feels she is truly independent people will tell her, but you will never hear her cast that title on herself. It is the imbalanced and dysfunctional females playing dress-up in a real woman’s clothing that feel the need to shout how independent that they are. Because, in all honesty, an independent woman can’t wait for a man… THE RIGHT MAN…to come along and compliment her strength. When she feels safe enough, she will hand him her entire load and gladly let him have it so that she can be power woman at the office and a catered woman at night. So again… we mustn’t let our experiences overshadow the facts of the matter. If I let my experiences with dudes overshadow the facts of what a man is supposed to be…..we wouldnt even be having this conversation. So I’ll continue to separate dogs from men if you promise to separate faux females in dress-up mode from independent women. Because Independent woman does not mean independent from the love and support of a man, it means she is independent from the stereotypes placed on her by association with her gender and excels in spite of barriers.  Capiche?
  • Mr. Mayor**DARKSTARZ INC PREZ**: Capiche! You have my word and trust I’m not saying that I don’t have hope that I will one day find a woman of that caliber I just can’t speak on what hasn’t happened… But my eyes, heart and mind are open the very possibility of that opportunity…
  • Me: Until then… you can’t say that you have come in contact with an independent woman then. You have come in contact with women who are trying to prove that they are independent and failing miserably. lol

         And then it hit me….. these guys are responding the way that they are because there are imposters out there wearing an Independent Woman’s clothes! Yes…. just as there are boys out there sporting a man’s attire, we have imposters on the woman’s side as well. So, the guys aren’t upset with a true independent woman, but rather her flunkie; her wanna be. This is completely understandable. And unfortunately, there is no way to show him what an independent woman is because much like good men, by the time the people who need to them they have stopped believing in their existence it is seeming too late because the indepedent women have given up.  But there is hope.. I know there is. Like I said above, if I havent let me viewpoint of a man change because of a few bad ones, I just ask that men not let their view of the independent woman be tainted because a few imposters just can’t get it right. Each person is an individual and independent of your past relationships and experiences…. this is my belief.

Sincerely,

~*My Mother’s Daughter*~
