-a whole month w/out as much as a word from me, smh. i must be a busy little bee OR at least i hope all this running around is getting me somewhere…
dear Birdie, sitting outside my window,
i realize spring has sprung, indeed.
you and your other feathered friends have returned north.
the weather has warmed up just a tad && the rain has come to shower our lawns && gardens.
however, one thing has certainly not changed, my deviant ability to stay up ALL night && sleep ALL morning.
this here presents a problem between us, dear Birdie, sitting outside my window.
your constant chirping is causing a disturbance.
it’s not that i’m not happy to see you, but maybe it would be best for us to meet up later in the day.
i’m sure there are many others who would be more than willing to entertain you ‘til then.
i never thought of myself as a writer, yet here i am… taking part in the creation of not one BUT two blogs! who woulda thunk?! All Black Everything was created by my best friend and i; an effort to uplift artist and designers within the african diaspora.
-the african diaspora spans about sixty-five countries across the caribbean, s. america, n. america, europe, asia & i’ll throw in australia too.
check us out. love us. subscribe.

i remember the first time i ever laid eyes on my first jar of apple butter. i was in philly for the weekend visiting my best friend who was attending UPENN at the time. there wasn’t much to eat, poor us, children stuck in college student poverty. i know right! i was in philly doh, HA! i’m getting away from the story. let’s focus… there i was, hungry, rummaging through the refrigerator and there it was; round, cold, just… just beautiful. i’m getting a little choked up here. Apple Butter & Crackers, my first apple butter experience.
now i’m sitting in my room at my computer, snacking on my Sweet Potato chips and out of the corner of my eye; what do i see? That “sweet potato chips are delicious alone or with… APPLE BUTTER." && here i am, apple butterless *bbm crying face*
my lil’ cousin put me on to this group | <3 this song
it really irks a nerve and starts a twitch in my fighting arm when ppl use the name of jesus christ to justify their own foolishness. exempli gratia, florida pastor, terry jones, took it upon himself to burn a copy of the quran and posted himself doing so during a church service (march 20, 2011)… to youtube. this comes after canceling his original event to do so on 9/11 which the florida pastor dubbed ‘international burn a quran day’.
but wait! there’s more! not only was there a mock trial held against the quran BUT a facebook poll was also taken to determine the proper punishment; burning won out over shredding, drowning and facing a firesquad. really my dood?!
SOMEONE needs to take a refresher course in his religions own sacred scripture before burning that of another ‘cause he CLEARLY missed a few passages && to imagine he’s actually convincing others to participate in this fuckery.
serious note: my prayers go out to the families of the seven ppl that were murdered in the demonstration and attack against the united nation’s compound in afghanistan; believed to be backlash for the actions of pastor terry jones and fellow supporter paster wayne sapp.
