Talk about the stories on YOUR mind

Malcolm Jamal Warner turns the big 4-0 today

Just like the headline says, this page/board is where you can discuss the stuff that we didn’t cover in today’s issue. (It’s sort of like feedback with a twist) Remember, NO name calling, racial taunting, graphic sex talk and vulgarity in general, PLEASE.

EUR MOTIVATIONAL NOTE

In an interview with Hank Aaron, author Robert Griessman stated that Hank Aaron was not just an exceptional athlete, but also used other tools to help him to become the top homerun hitter of all times. He combined the ability to dream with extreme focus. He would see home runs as a possibility, then he would make them into realities.” – Willie Jolley, excerpt from the book, It Only Takes a Minute to Change Your Life

No mention/discussion of the Black Susan Smith in SC?

3. Juicebox says:

Morning everyone. Happy Smurfday Theo. Would you like me to send you a homemade Gordon Gartrell shirt for your gift?

4. letmein says:

morning fam! Happy Birthday Theo. LOL @ JB! That was one of the funniest episodes.

5. YlawdY says:

Good morning family. What it do?

Theo was not on the CGI list, but the all grown up and sexy Malcolm Jamaal Warner is def on the list.

I love his jazz/spoken word band, Miles Long.

6. YlawdY says:

jazz…OSB briefly mentioned it yesterday.

7. Lovely says:

Jazz – I really think the media is doing a good job of portraying what was going on in her psyche for her to do something like that. Somehow I don’t hate her like I hated Susan Smith. I really feel sorry for her that she went to such extreme measures and did such a horrible thing to those boys.

• jazzfan says:

I wish that everyone could get the help they need, and for those who can’t or won’t, when you decide to check out, leave your kids alone. They didn’t do it, whatever it is.

Word of the Day

August 18

insouciance

\in-SOO-see-unss\

noun

Meaning

: lighthearted unconcern : nonchalance

Example Sentence

The teenager’s careless insouciance about her schoolwork does not bode well for her grades.

• jazzfan says:

Why do women so often feign insouciance when they know they want it as much as we do? ;o)

9. asize12 says:

Good Morning BBP’s! Happy Humpday! Also, Happy Birthday to Theo! He wears 40 very well. I saw his “Life After” on TVOne and it was pretty good. He seems like a cool dude. I hope everyone has a great day! So, what’s the T? *scrolling up*

10. asize12 says:

>jazz, my heart is so heavy for those babies. I know that she’s not mentally stable, but that still doesn’t change the fact that two lives where taken. I just wish more people would get the help that they need as soon as they realize that their mind ain’t right. If more people would get therapy and address their mental issues, things of this nature wouldn’t occur so frequently. I believe that most killers are mentally unstable. Those poor babies…

• jazzfan says:

A lady named Terrie Williams wrote a book about the reasons why Blacks don’t seek help for mental health issues, in large part it’s because we are afraid of seeming weak and also because many of us think that all of the answers come from Heaven above.

11. LawdHvMrcy says:

Hey folks… What it does, cuz?

I’m tired and sick. But my skin is glowing!!! Since I only claim being black from 3-4 on Tuesdays because of the foolishment that goes on in the Black community, I am officially changing to Dominican. Hola!

Jazz, that girl was sick. But there are people way sicker in this world– namely the folks who commented on the article on CNN. Of course they took the racial route and said some ignorant and hateful things, they forgot about Susan Smith or Andrea Yates. Or Darlie Routier.

12. YlawdY says:

RANDOM DADDY FOOLISHMENT: My dad called me on the phone and asked “What comes after ‘What God has joined together let no man’ in the marriage vows?” I reply “Put assunder.” He says “And all these years I thought the minister said ‘Put us under’.”

I H.A.T.E. HIM. LMAO

13. YlawdY says:

I guess “called me on the phone” was a redundant statement. Like smoke signals were an option….

• jazzfan says:

He didn’t send you a telegram? ;o)

14. Lovely says:

LHM – I try to never read the comments section unless I want to get mad and have the Black Panther mentality. The people who comment on articles are some of the most ignorant, racist mofos on the face of the planet. BUT, the pitiful part is that not NAR ONE of them would say that sh*t to ANYBODY’s face! It’s real easy for people to hide behind the protection of a computer screen.

15. letmein says:

YLY…tell pops I just figured it out when I got married. I though it said ‘us under’, too.

16. letmein says:

LHM…glad you’re back! Why you sick? Did you have fun!

17. Lovely says:

YLY – your dad is a comedian!

18. LawdHvMrcy says:

Love, reading those comments are a double edge sword…

On one hand, it reminds you that racism is very much alive. White sheets use to hide the anonymity of racists, but the 2010 ‘white sheet’ is an Avatar and a keyboard.

On the other hand, it reminds you that racism is very much alive. So, while we need to acknowledge that we’ve made strides, we have a LONG way to go.

19. LawdHvMrcy says:

CTHU at Uncle Lawd!

Letmein, I caught a cold while down there. I had the chills (teeth chattering, goose bumps, etc) and a fever… I broke my fever while down there.

Now its just a dry cough and fatigue. If it doesn’t subside, I’m going to the doc. Don’t wanna catch ebola!

Despite alla that, I had a damb ball!

20. Lovely says:

LHM, what does it remind you on the 3rd hand?

21. Lovely says:

Soooooooooooo, did you meet any Rico Suave’s?

22. LawdHvMrcy says:

Love, on the third hand (two knees and six elbows) it reminds me that racism is very much alive!

No rico suaves, but there were a lot of bro’s there. They were cool to hang out w/. One of them, who is from DC, is opening up a lounge in my area. He was cute, but short and married…

I did give my number to that guy who I copped a feel on… not sure he is gonna call, tho..LOL

23. Lovely says:

Racism will never die. I believe that.

Short men need to be banished from the kingdom… ugh. It’s just a waste. Men should automatically be predestined to be at least 6 feet tall.
6′ – 6’4″ should be considered short.
6’5″ – 6’8″ should be considered average.
6’9″ and up should be considered tall.

24. asize12 says:

@ lovely! Well that just leaves my poor hubby out, he’s only 5’9. And J is now 5’8 at 14 so he’s bout to pass us all up! Dude grew like 6 inches last year alone!

25. HersheysKiss says:

BLACK POWER!!!!! *holding my fist high in the air* WORD

And a great day to all of you. In my professional opinion I believe LawdHv’s immune system was compromised by the massive amounts of liquor she consumed during her Dominican excursion, resulting in her current state. I only play a doctor on t.v. and EUR however, I have watched numerous episodes of Trapper John MD, ST Elsewhere, HOUSE and Grey’s Anatomy and very comfortable with my diagnosis and my knowledge of all things medical. This includes hospital romances, GSW (gun shot wounds), & hostage situations.

If you are interested in my reviewing your case, please contact my office to set up an appt. Please and thank you.

26. letmein says:

LOL! Good morning Hershey!! asize12…dang J is tall!

27. Lovely says:

LOL @ HK… I’ve also seen commercials of “General Hospital” on tv so I can step in as a nurse.

Speaking of nurses, what the hell is a ‘wet nurse’? I’ve always wanted to ask but I think I was always afraid of the answer. I don’t want to google it on these work computers in case it’s something pervertish.

28. Juicebox says:

I think a wet nurse nurses(breast feeds) kids.

29. Lovely says:

OJ – that’s nasty… so just a random chick squirting her boob in your baby’s mouth?
(I guess it’s better than what I was originally thinking…)

30. Lovely says:

Text from Cruella: I’m throwing a surprise birthday party for your brother tomorrow evening. Sure would be nice if you were here.

Me thinking to myself: I know your @ss didn’t JUST come up with this idea… It ‘sure would be nice if’ I had more than 24 hours notice.

31. letmein says:

Lovely i think I’d be rollign my eyes too.

32. HersheysKiss says:

How are you supposed to get the ATL by tomorrow night for a surprise party??

33. Lovely says:

Annnnnnnnnnnd now I’m being lectured by text. I’m turning the phone off and I’m turning my work ringer off.

34. Lovely says:

Letmein/HK – exactly. We all knew his birthday is tomorrow. I specifically asked her about a month ago if they were doing anything special and she said no so I didn’t give it much more thought. Now it has apparently turned into a big surprise party. Whatever.

35. asize12 says:

>letmein, J was 5’2 in June 2009, now he’s 5’8. And within that year, he went from a shoe size of 7 to 11. Everytime someone sees him, that’s the first thing outta their mouth, “He’s getting so tall!” And J just LOVES it! He’s thoroughly enjoying teenage world.

36. Lovely says:

I’m dreaming of a world with no underwires…

37. crookedlettereye says:

Hey Fam. Workin in dual compacities today at work. A branch of our credit department has two ppl…and their both out…one on vacation, the others brother is on his dying bed and she’s been here but not here ya know. Her boss has insisted that she go home, get rest etc but she wont do it. With that said I’ve been in this department previously so they asked me to help here while they were low and also see clients…so im spreaded pretty thin at the moment…but I do think it shows my versatility and worth…anyway whats shaking? booty and tittie meat preferably….:-)

38. HersheysKiss says:

LoveTrain– I wouldn’t give it much thought either. You could always send a singing telegram. Hmmmmmm — maybe Chippy D is available! I don’t know how much she costs though. Just sayin….

Anyway. LETMEIN how was jr.’s first day at the the new school?? *chin resting on hands while looking at screen awaiting Let’s reply* LOL

39. crookedlettereye says:

Bout to head to lunch, when she gets back from visiting him at the hospital. OAN: I was leaving a convenient store last night…and a homeless woman was outside. She got my attention, I walked over and spoke and said what’s up? She said she needed five dollars for some food. I offered to go back in and buy her some. She said naw she needed the five cuz she was gone go to the store a block over to get some candy and chips…I say well Im not dropping off the cash, but how bout I go back in and buy you some chips and candy…she looked at me like I had cussed her azz out…lol so i say sorry I couldnt help turned and got in my car…smh welp I tried in Jesus name…lol

40. letmein says:

Sorry so long on the reply HK. I just came back from picking him up. He said it’s okay. He’s only went a half day yesterday and today. He had to dress up for Mass today. Now you know I ain’t letting my baby wear no darn tennis shoe.s with a dress shirt and tie. He said his teacher pulled him to the front of the class and told the other students to use him as an example. LOL! He said ‘mom they must don’t go to church’. HA!

41. slenda says:

To the tune of Michael Bolton’s We’re not making love anymore, I present to you,

’Cause this damn board done broke many times

Here we are, just going through the motions one more time
I look into this page, but I don’t see them
Here I am, feelin’ like a stranger in this place
I refresh, click refresh, but lately just get errors

Something is wrong but we go on from day to day
And we just pretend it all away
We act like nothing’s changed
But in our hearts we know, it’s not the same

Chorus

’cause this damn board done broke many times
Brethrens, we’re not posting here like before
We may go to Facebook site
Seems there everything’s alright
Cause Bailey doesn’t care

Remember when, we couldn’t wait to come and post away
When the posts inside this board were all we needed
Remember when, it made me wish it wasn’t time for bed
The laughter, the catfights, we lived to post in this piece

If ever two hearts were one, then it was ours and this board’s
But that was another place in time
Now all we have to show
Are memories of a dream we used to know

Chorus
’cause this damn board done broke many times
Brethrens, we’re not posting here like before
We may go to Facebook site
Seems there everything’s alright
Cause Bailey doesn’t care

42. Lovely says:

HK – this is my brother with the wife, the mistress, the side chick, the girlfriend and the bottom b*tch. The last thing he needs is another girl shaking her @ss in his face. I wish I could afford to hire a divorce attorney and buy him a new house!!

LETMEIN – are the kids in his school ‘our’ color?

43. Lovely says:

you know some folks take the whole ‘come as you are’ thing literal.

44. Lovely says:

My boss’s boss has told us stories of how his daughter won’t wake up on Sunday’s to go to church so they just put her in the car in her pj’s and take her in like that.

Cruella & Daddy would have NEVER let that sh*t go down.

45. slenda says:

Greetings beautiful black people.

46. LawdHvMrcy says:

Hersh, you are stoopid. Please go to the corner… Freeze and prank Lou.

Letmein, I LOVE the fact that Jr. is showing them how to do it! Question, since it is a Catholic school do they have to go to ma$$and observe the religion? 47. LawdHvMrcy says: LMAO at Splenda’s song…. 48. Lovely says: I went to mass and I wasn’t Catholic. It was a requirement of my school. *so was telling my great-grandmother to shorten my uniforms & skirts so they were shorter than they were supposed to be. she never questioned me, she just did what I asked… bless her soul. 49. Lovely says: Slenda, we sure don’t have many cat fights anymore… The one person who made my ass itch doesn’t post anymore. Correction, the THREE people… 50. letmein says: Lovely….I was very surprised of the number of ‘us’ in his class. Yes he has to attend Mass but he doesn’t have to take communion or anything like that. I told them I prefer he not. I’ve had a few discussions with him on the differences between the religions (we’re Baptist). The principal said they will refer to a Catholic bible in religion class ocassionally but that they don’t make them learn scriptures or anything. I bet my son would run circles around them on scripture, too. Well, the ones that are parallel to the King James version. He came home with a letter today saying he was chosen to sing in the choir. He told me he didn’t know any Catholic songs. CTFU!!!! 51. letmein says: Sing it Slenda!!! LOL! 52. Lovely says: Letmein – this is gonna be a FUNNY school year! Please keep us updated on what’s going on!! 53. LawdHvMrcy says: I am hating my droid right now. Keep getting repeat texts. And oh, the functionality of the phone is real weird if you try to do stuff while its charging… Love/osun– I am behind on BB but I did see that Rachel is gone and Brendon has HOH this week. Is it worth playing catchup on the last 3 episodes? 54. LawdHvMrcy says: Love, who are your three people? They aren’t reading the board today! LOL For the most part, there isn’t a person I hated but there were a few who annoyed the shat out of me… Khufu 55. Lovely says: LHM – Javonne, Khufu & Kevobx — the 3 of them made me want to smack somebody (well, not ‘somebody’… I mean THEM). OK, I’m out… time to get all these doggone curls outta my head. I desperately need straight hair again. See ya’ll later (or tomorrow or whatever). PEACE!!! 56. letmein says: Lovely…I figured as much when I heard him tell his friend that Mother Mary and Jesus were his new principals. **giggle** 57. HersheysKiss says: LawdHv–> I sent you a msg about the droid the other day. *which you ignored* It is acking a fool!! Mine particularly acks a fool when I try to use FB. *shaking angry fist* And for the record, the corner and I don’t see eye to eye, so I won’t be taking residence there. LETMEIN–Glad to hear he is setting the world on fire. I am a product of catholic school 2-8th gr. Went to mass, still know every catholic song, mass song and can still recite the mantra that take place during service. LOL But it never conflicted with my church practices or activities. When in Rome… I’m sure your son will have a great year. I’m rooting for him!! Woo Hoo!! *throwing confetti* 58. letmein says: Only 2:30? You gotta be kiddin’!! I’ma die!! 59. BigP1914 says: Do my eyes deceive me, or has Joseph C. Phillips been removed from the EUR? Somebody: Please let me know… I’m about to burst at the prospect of his conservative a$$ being dismissed from this site!!!
