I sent the Howard email from my wrong email address. I meant to send it from my Ms. Smart address. Sent from my iPhone Continue reading

Saving through just a bank account? A long, long, long time.

I'd take them out or send them something goofy because when they got it, it would make them smile.

Ed. Note: The following was posted over 6 9-10 years ago but I think the content applies with a bit of adjustment. This was written before Twitter. Twitter changed the game. It made is to that men don't even have to compose a paragraph to get women. A few tweets, a DM,then bam! Before I officially start, this might could get Unabomber long. OK? I'm just putting that out there up front so y'all don't comment that I've been stricken with Panamitis (a propensity for long ass entries). It's gonna take a minute to get to the point. When I...

Once in a while I go to a spot that just feels right. This past weekend, the last stop on our Dish Crawl was The Elroy. It's a spot that doesn't even officially open until July 3 (according to our super burgundy haired cool bartender whose name I cant recall). It's right around the corner from The Argonaut on H Street, NE. The downstairs is a bar and there's a patio out back. The upstairs has another bar (much smaller) and lounging space. Check them out!

Ladies and Gents, Where have I been? I've been somewhere being too lazy to blog. And when one is too lazy to blog, there is but one thing to do: PODCAST!!! We've done four shows so far. And we even have a website (Whiskey, Wine, and Moonshine)! We're on Spreecast, Stictch and iTunes. That's right! You can subscribe to us and take us with you on car rides and listen at work (with headphones). Check us out! Related articles And Then There Were Three!!! Continue reading

Being poor is expensive. This is the part nobody seems to care about.

I really don't walk down the street often. But the stories I hear from the women I do make me think this needs to stop. We need to make sue young men are taught the proper way to approach a woman and that she doesn't owe them ANYTHING. That will be hard to teach when so many women are ok with men cat calling and what not.

I like it slightly colder than room temp. I like to put a bit on a plate and let the chill get knocked off, THEN eat it.

I saw it and enjoyed it.

Since Google Reader is going away soon, I got an account on It says that this is a dead feed. I call BULLSHYT! So long as I am paying for this web space weekly. This is not a dead feed. I've been walking around living a bloggable life but to lazy to type. But today, on top of seeing this listed as a dead feed, I am bored to death. So let's see what has gone on...I still work at the same place, technically live in the same place, and look the same. I occasionally tweet but not really.... Continue reading

I recently hosted a brunch for my girlfriends. I'd just gotten a waffle iron, deep fryer, and Keurig (among other kitchen-y things) for a my birthday. So what other way to break in my new-new and fatten up my friends, than to invite them over for a brunch. (We'll discuss the logistics of planning brunch later.) I made WAY too many waffles. Like, a whole stack so offensive that it would make terrorists' hate for us go from the orange area into a shade of crimson that would warrant a war on our soul. Can't have that! Anyhow, once the...

When my friends want to know how to do something home related, they often ask me. And because I'm nothing if not generous, I thought I'd go ahead and share some of these tips with you. But first, allow me to address the elephant in the room. Are household things women's work? I don't know. But I do know that I sincerely enjoy cooking, cleaning, and all things domestic except folding clothes. With all the technology we have, I feel that home laundry technology is severely behind the times. First, why does it take so long for clothes to dry?... Continue reading

Nope. Part of our problem is that everyone wants to be able to blame someone for the stupid things kids do. Sometimes, kids just are stupid but slick enough to get away from adults and do stupid things. I used to skip school (high school), a lot. It was nobody's fault but my own. The school did everything they could (we rigged the attendance process so electronically we were there, by physically we weren't). Our parents were none the wiser. Oh and my kid is an idiot for getting a tattoo using a pencil and pen. This isn't jail!

Exactly. And if I don't know the kid personally, I will pull up along side of him/her and let him know I see him/her and will be snitching ASAP.

Do y’all believe pretty women are crazy? Think about it. I’ve been hearing this for so long. There’s an expectation out there that if a woman is pretty, fine, desirable in any way, it should be automatically assumed she’s crazy. This might even be true. And yeah, I’m saying this as a woman who is easy on the eyes. I speak from a place of knowing. I’m not saying it’s cool to be crazy. But I definately understand how a prettier woman can get trained to be crazy. Taking into account that all women have crazy in them but the... Continue reading

Why oh why do women like to deal with assholes? I was hoping this wouldn't be a question I'd still have to ask in 2013. Much like my prediction that Bobby and Whitney would get back together, this new age of enlightenment I predicted for my sisters was off the mark. Back to the question. Is it because women think they are going to change the man into Mr. Act Right. I buy that. That only accounts for 50% of it. I’ve dealt with my share of asses. (I am overstating the number for emphasis and to make myself seen... Continue reading

I wasn't raised by women who wore make-up. I didn't discover the stuff until late in life. And I didn't develop any sincere interest until recently. Thanks to YouTube, I have learned so many fun things. I'm still not really willing to wear night time make up during the day and refuse to wear lashed that look like I'm on a reality show. I'm still way too lazy to wear it daily. Not to mention, I'm scared of ruining my skin. In my YouTube 'travels', I've seen some things y'all. I have seen women who weren't ugly, but not necessarily... Continue reading

I love The Walking Dead. When one show goes off, I am ready for the next. This is probably because I watched seasons one and two in one weekend. I'm so glad I did. There are so many great themes in the show. For weeks I've been meaning to write about them but as we all know, I haven't been about the business of writing much lately. I mean, Mercury was in retrograde... I have downloaded Zeebox so I watch with Twitter, just Twitter, not Black Twitter. And everyone pretty much agreed Michone rocks. And when I said she was...

Why are you giving out all of this good common sense information? Folks don't want it. Haven't you heard? Letting him drive your car is you showing that you're bringing something to the table and being a team player. Besides, the car was gonna be sitting around for 8+ hours anyway. And the kids he's not seeing? Didn't you know that's the mother's fault, and the courts. Cant forget about them. They only allow him to see his child once every other weekend and those are weekends where he DJ's at the wing shack.

Look, I love a good soul food spot like the next person whose wild side includes flirting with diabetes and heart disease. Having been to a few, there's an observation I've made. They are where efficiency and planning go to die and slow, wrenching death. During Howard's homecoming, we stumbled into Oohhs & Aahhs on U Street. Every business within a ten block radius knew it was homecoming weekend. Every OTHER establishment seemed prepared for the influx of extra customers...except this place. This wasn't their first time at the rodeo so why so slow and unorganized? Then tonight we went... Continue reading

By now everyone has heard about the Petraeus scandal. We've been exposed to daily revelations, twists, and turns. We've had people pointing to Mrs. Petraeus as the reason why her husband cheated. Always blame the woman. Mrs. Petraeus let herself go. Well maybe she wasn't cute to start. She is not to blame. Dude is a grown ass man. He was going to put his penis where he wanted no matter who he was married to. But I do want to talk about women letting themselves go. Why be cute and well put together, then stop? I'm not talking about... Continue reading
