I’ve been really lazy lately. What us black folks call “slackin on my pimpin.” One reason has been because I’ve had so many loose thoughts on my mind that I couldn’t really commit to one. Another reason is that I’ve been having thoughts that I don’t really want to claim yet. Whatever the case, I’ve been lazy, and it’s time to come out of that. I've been productive, just lazy with my thoughts and my progression. But thanks to a thought provoking talk about art, love and life, I am ready to make some kind of growth, forever trying to mold the person I want to be.

I went to Ed Mabrey’s Black Pearl Poetry last night. Every third Tuesday is slam night, and my boy Dan made it to the second round (shout outs to him). Also, shout outs to Kevin, the photographer/psychologist I met at the bar last night with the fabulous locs. I wish I had my camera so I could’ve took his picture. But you’ll just have to trust me that his locs were fabulous.

Ed started out the night with a poem (like he always does) thanking everybody for coming out and not watching reality TV. Now, American Idol started last night, which is going to provide a major clash in my Tuesday and Wednesday hanging out schedule. I cannot balance my time at home and my time away. Either I am out for nights on end, or I’m in the house for an eternity, but I don’t know how to do both. So now is my practice. To help balance between supporting local events and nesting I have ordered TiVo for my house, so I can make sure I’m out and about, while I’m catching American Idol later on. I’m getting close to win-win.

Question of the day: Can you have love for someone/something without having a connection to it?

Song For Today: Honey Molasses, Jill Scott
It was magic the way it happened
Pure electricity
I felt so excited and afraid at the same time
I don 't know whether to sing or to rhyme
Ooh, you ever felt like that before?

Excited About: Project Runway and American Idol on TV tonight

Hair: I am retwisting my hair tonight, and updating Creamy Crack soon. I promise! I already have a couple of my awesome friends I’ll be profiling in the next couple weeks. If you want to be profiled, let me know!

Ed Mabrey here.
Thanks for coming out Donna!
And keep the TiVo going, so we don't lose you and others like you but also so you don't lose your shows. See, art can be fun and giving all at once!
(my personal fetish is the prison break show..thank goodness it is on mondays)
And get at me about going to Charlotte next month so I can tell you how all your peeps can go and have fun!

I agree with Ed, TiVo will be my saving grace too because I'd be stuck in front of television watching sports all day.
