As usual I delay..

06 Feb

As usual I delay and as they say “Lay Lay” with my blog posts.  Well here I go.  It’s raining here at home and even though I have crazy work to do, I figured hmmm let me do a little writing.

chess.jpg (604×453)Life is very funny.  In the past few weeks I have come to the profound understanding that life and living is much more like a chess game.  It’s not that I did not know this before, I just was hoping that it was not so.  Why can’t we all just speak from the heart and worry not about the consequences? So many times I sit and see the social chess being played.  What are you wearing? What are you driving? Did you spend today? Did you acknowledge me? These are just a few of the questions that I see our people asking whilst in the social arena.

Let me take this time to clear a few things with those that I see in the arena.  I don’t play chess very well in fact I don’t play it at all. With this in mind, I don’t place my “pieces” in such a way as to garner a result 5 or 6 moves ahead.  Let me give you an example.  If I call you to check in on you is simply because I want to know how you are doing.  I am not trying to sauce you up so that you will come to my dance later in the year. So to wrap up that point, I try to be super genuine…. If mi nuh like yuh a just soh.  However if we are cool we are cool. Period the end.

Shift gear, one of my most favorite bloggers is @mamachell and her blog is  Let me tell you why she is one of my favorite in simply one word; honesty.  Her posts are straight forward and crisp without being over bearing.  Even when she is ranting she lets you know how she feels without handing you her baggage. Thanks @mamachell for all the chuckles and insight to your crazy world.  Keep up the good work.

Shift again. This may be a little crazy but now that I have started cooking again I have discovered the wonders of powdered coconut milk…. Yea  yea I know fresh is better, however dat ting is maddddd. Yep that’s maddddd with 5 d’s (big up chi ching ching) I use it with everything. Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, curry chicken, brown stew chicken etc.  I simply love it.  Now it is my earnest feeling that it is the major contributor to my weight gain however I will fight for my love of coconut milk.

Final shift is to tattoos. I have a few, ¾ of which were badly done.  However…. Hmm let me back up a minute.  Last year about this time I saw this “white girl” (is that prejudice hmmm) she was filled with the most elegant tattoos.  She was like a walking canvas. Now I know in my generation that many of us have one maybe two small tats, but few of us go for the large pieces. I will say this to all who will listen, go big or go home! On a woman I love large colourful work. Now don’t get me wrong there is still a social stigma and I get that but as far as I’m concerned they are amazing….. Go for it.

In closing, as usual I will pass on a few tidbits:

  • I am just about off the blackberry juice so if I don’t respond to BBM link me on di whats app.
  • I will say that I have simply fallen in love with Android phones.
  • I have high hopes for 2012 so paraphrase former president Bush – If you are not with me then you must be against me.
  • To my kids my love is ever present no matter what dem seh!
