Hello, My Name is Honey and CrackBerry

I am ultra addicted to my new phone. I pick it up to check for messages (which I always have) constantly. I have sometimes long and asinine conversations on my Black Berry messenger; and I wouldn't have it any other way. I get tons of calls and try to only let a few slip to voice mail. And, even still, only to see my voicemail icon pop up. LOL. I can't wait to leave the country and use all the gadgets on it. It's really sad actually. Speciously drawing me in with all its features, I have ignored many a face-to-face convos with B-list friends to play Brick Breaker on my phone. Is it just me, am I the only one? I say no, the link below from Forbes shows that many people have become "connection junkies" in today's society. That makes me smile. Perhaps not only misery, but addiction also loves company :-)

My Babies...Yet Again

Aren't they so cute? They got in the bed together last time I was visiting.

A New Band Added to the Favorites: Flyleaf

I LOVE this band!! Sorrow, I'm Sorry, So I Thought and All Around Me are my favorites! I don't have time to type a whole review at this time but you should definitely check them out.

She May Be Young But What A Wonderful Voice

I actually first heard her sing on her now finished sitcom, "Still Standing," and I've been a fan since. How talented and cultured she must be to belt out the smooth and spicy jazz tunes of the "good ol' days." Perhaps we finally have found a new little Ella Fitz. to satisfy our hunger for the music you here in a Louisiana lounge while sipping on a glass of too sweet lemonade. :-)

The CD I have pictured above is not the most recent one (it was released in 2004), but does happen to be my favorite. With tracks like Summertime, A Love That Will Last and Someone to Watch Over Me, this CD is sure to attract even a skeptical jazz lover. I also think that a fan of Norah Jones would like the CD as well, but that's just my opinion (and yes, I love Norah Jones).

Food For Thought

"There are no chaste minds. Minds copulate wherever they meet."

-Eric Hoffer (author).

This struck me for some reason. Our pervious minds do tend to be little whores if you think about it. Getting (and exchanging) knowledge from the first smart person we cross, lol, kidding. But on one hand not, we are constantly soaking up information from anyone and anywhere. Do people exercise "safe sex" when it comes to thoughts and info? Perhaps not for those gullible naive people. I, however, like to consider myself to be selective :-)

You Make Me Happy...

Praising God this morning. I started my day with much prayer and intercession, and I really do just feel filled with a joy and sort of peace that only He can give. Thank you Lord for blessing me with this great attitude today! Now lets just hope that I manage to keep it that way :-)

Work was awesome yesterday, as we had Kaleidoscope day- a day where many cultures get together to eat, dance and enjoy life! Famous Dave's and Big Daddies served up ribs, fish and chicken- and no, I did not partake of the "cook-out" food, but I did have a small dish of orange chicken and vegetables with rice. A Scottish man blew his bag pipes, a band rocked out and this wonderfully-in-shape woman danced on stage, get this: While hula-hooping! It was pretty fun.

So Yea...Scratch That Last Post

Ha, I am still a female after all! lol. I am asking that my last post be disregarded. I do still have that weak feminine quality of overestimating a romantic situation at times. Yes, we care for each other... a lot.. But that's all it is- just good friends or something of the sort? He still has his "toys" and I have mine. Though, I'd be lying if I said my attitude toward them hasn't changed. They are great, but I'm tired of having my roster full, I need something more constant. Not necessarily exclusive but, just that the affections we have for each other are just that- for each other. I don't want to share the feelings with his other females or with any my male friends. This is growing to be a headache... Or maybe I just think too much and over analyze?

So, the commitment talk came about yesterday... I think I am happy with the results :-) Considering that I am one of those few women left that are scared of commitment (lol), and I am not actively chasing after the "M" word, what he said pleased me. However, I know there is another side to it. Whenever a man want all of the content of the word "girlfriend" but doesn't want to get anywhere near the label, it's a problem... I'm no fool. But I don't like titles either, so I can't complain...

I am just so used to having my roster of men filled- I mean Filled. Not in a sexual way (ewww) just with many different types: A baller (No really he plays in the NFL), a world traveller (lol he's so rude and spoiled), My island guy (Bermudian men ha), My suit and tie (so professional), my thug (ha "Soldier" is his theme song) and a few others...

This guy though, this man, he makes me want to drop them all, and I have basically. I mean yes, they still call, but the only person I want to spend time with, the only person I make time for, is him... Putting all my eggs in one basket?- so unlike me. Hopefully I don't end up with a basket full of empty shells in the end.

My Little Sash Sash

You all know how I feel about my babies- I haven't put a pic up in a while, so here I am with sasha on a recent visit. She's like my little doll...

And All That Jazz...

The late Enlgish writer, Aldous Huxley said: "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music."

I feel like David Benoit's music does this for me. I have yet to finish the whole album, but so far, I am really loving "Human Nature" and "Never Can Say Goodbye." These songs, though they have no words, perfectly represented more than a few emotions I have experienced over the past month. With nearly therapeutic melodies, there's bound to be something for everyone on this album- Give it a listen!

A Wonderful Fourth

All I can say is that was a first for me and I loved... What on Earth am I doing, allowing my emotions to become so invested...
