Yessss, I got tagged!

Aaaand, here we go! Another “tag” session. Love these! And with them come random pictures. Yall know how silly I am, so brace yourself. First off….I want to send some love to my fellow beauty bloggers.

Love love love yall! Here are my top quirky ‘but they make me me’ tidbits..

1) I love to people watch. And not just “watch people walk by”. I seriously look at their facial expressions/movements, listen to them and begin developing story lines about them. I’ve been doing these since I was a little girl and have even developed short stories inspired by strangers. That’s kinda Lifetime movie stalker-ish, uh?

2) I have a problem asking for anything. Seriously….and I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. I’ve gone hungry because I have been too proud to ask for a piece of bread. I’ve slept in my car because I hate invading peoples’ spaces. I know….is that not crazy or what?

3) I’m superwoman. I’m serious….I can lift a ton of bags, carry things up and down stairs and have this crazy strength. It’s strange but hella useful when living in a 2nd-floor apartment and having to carry 7 bags of groceries in the rain.

4) I pretend to like weaves when in reality I loathe them tremendously. And on anyone. Braid extensions are one thing but weave ponytails, lace fronts, tracks, etc….ugghhh, it’s a mess and always so obviously fake to me. I just think everyone needs to wear their own hair… know, if they can.

5) When I was younger, I used to have my own talk show. I had a little jingle and would literally talk to myself on an entire 60 minute cassette. Sometimes I would have a featured guest (my babysitter or friend) and would even do my own commercials. A mess.

Told yall…I’m a straaange person. But most neo-hippies are.

Check me out on my first time on a city bus in Philly…

That experienced me braced me for takin’ the Metro in LA. Boyyyyy, you can take the girl out of the ‘burbs, but…

And more recent…

Why does my Little (I’m in BigBrothers, BigSisters) ALWAYS take the best pictures of my figure? Had I had anyone take this I would have looked like a hippo. Love it!

But we digress to another tagged thingie:

“Within the darkness lies the light”

Don’t ask me WTF that means because I made it up myself.

  • Mrs. Lynne,

    What, no Moments in Love by the Art of Noise??? And I thought you were cool CoM 😛

  • Grayburn

    Great to know more about you! I was watching the nanny (not with fran, but the one where they send a nanny to your house to fix your kids?), and I said; “oh no, no kids for me!”. I’m scared to death of having kids I think….

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. The MF blush looks great and I wish more and more company do customizable things. We are all unique and diverse!

    take care,

  • Lakia

    Loves some Earth, Wind & Fire… and yes, I’m tryin’ to make it to the mother land too.

  • Divine Blackness

    Auntie Lynne–> Used to? Nah uhhh…I still watch my G.Girls. Got all of the seasons on DVD. After Martin, that is my all-time favorite show! You are a Mommy of 2 boys…definitely a super woman in my eyes!

    Shawnta–> That Sara Smiles is just…OMG, I love that song. And you so crazy. But you knowwww I would (ahem, will) totally do something like that.

    Anon–> Are you kidding me? I love all 11 mins of that song. I should have put that on the list.

    Grayburn–> I looove Nanny Fran’s annoying self. And I think the show you are thinking of is Nanny 911. Don’t let that scare you. I think parent’s LET their kids act that way. My kids aren’t even born yet and they already know better. Shoooot. Lol!

  • D’lee Trecia

    I do not appreciate weave when the roots of hair is extra nappy and the tracks are Silky Yaki. You know what I’m taking about, Divne…If it’s over-the-top, I do not want!

    On the flip side, I’m a big fan of just hair in general so I can appreciate cute hair whether it’s real or fake.
