I Get So Weak..Sunday edition


On Saturday, Bj left to get his hair braided from a woman that lives down the street from me and when he made it back we pretty much lazed around the house the whole day. He bought some “green” from one of the guys that was there getting his hair braided as well so we pretty much spent the whole day Saturday and Sunday getting blazed. It was kinda bunk though. We usually get “the green” from Southpark but to avoid travelling that far and because we’ve been looking for a connection on my side of town we went ahead with this guy. I was just buzzing it didn’t really get me like I like to feel.

Sunday we must have had sex at least 3 times before Bj left. My pussy is a little sore but satisfied. It’s like I can feel ole girl smiling down there LOL. I am kind of upset with myself that I got soo weak minded and couldn’t stick by what I said but I am only human. I guess because the past few weeks have been kinda lonely for me and when he started kissing on my neck it became hard for me to say no.

Bj got up to leave around 7 and I walked him to the door. Usually he is the one that asks me if he could stay another night but he didn’t and before he walked out I was surprised that I ended up asking him if he would stay. He paused for a long time before answering yes and I guess I got upset that he took soo long to answer that I was like thats okay just go ahead and go.

Right now my head and feelings are real discombobulated. I don’t know whether I should just leave Bj alone since obviously we can’t be friends. I mean we could but that would be really hard for me because I have feelings for him *sigh*. I don’t know what to do.

I blame it on the dick that has my head screwed up right now. When I think about me and Bj that old SWV song comes to my mind. “I get soo weak in the knees. I can hardly speak. I lose all control and …….”

All them girls could sing hunh?

Until Next Time…

I Get Sooo Weak….Saturday edition


I caved in and spent this past weekend with BJ. I was like we are going to try this friend thing and see how it goes. Before BJ came over I asked him straight up what was his attentions when he gets to my house and he told me that he wanted to see me and spend time with me but was also hoping that we would have sex too. Hummph!

So he came over Saturday and at first I was being strong he was being strong. We was chilling, talking, and catching up with each other. He hugged me a little too long when he first came in. While I was in the kitchen he came up behind me to give me another hug and I felt a little no a bigggg something but we were doing good.

And then….we put on a porno. Why oh Why? I mean WHYYYYY?? That was the end of it. I can’t even remember how we were even to just break out this damn flick, but yea I think he said something and then I told him about this flick I found online (I love porn!) that goes hard and I asked him if he wanted to watch it (I do it to myself everytime dont I ) . I found the clip saved to my desktop and put it on for him and the sexual tension was soo thick you could cut it with a knife…and after a few minutes of watching it he goes “Damn I’m horny.”This man gone ask me if he could jack off in front of me (I like to watch!) and my answer was “friends don’t do that.” That was my answer to everything almost that whole day when he asked me something I wasn’t comfortable with …”friends dont do that.” And from there after we finished watching the one saved on my computer, he just happened to have one in his cd case that he wanted to show me.

This was the beginning of our show me yours and I’ll show you mine contest I guess. So we went upstairs to my room and he wants to show me his chest. He works out a lot so he says he has gotten bigger since the last time I saw him ( like its really been that long). I say thats okay and he actually gets mad that I don’t want to see his chest LOL. He tells me that he is going to show it anyway but when he lifted his shirt I turned my head LOL. Funny. It’ s like as soon as he got inside the house he started talking real big about how much better he has gotten since we were last together and all this jazz trying to get me to take the bait but I wasn’t biting. Like I said in a previous post, Getting Intimate With BJ, the sex has always been fantabulous with BJ but the last couple of times we did it was not the mindblowing sex I was used to with him. He was having some dingaling issues. So all that day he kept telling me “I’m back!” LOL….

He put the dvd in and I layed across the bed and he sat on the edge of the bed so I put my head on his lap. I was soo horny just from being near him. He looks at me and goes “Damn I’m horny” I say “You always horny” and we go back to watching the dvd. After a moment he asked me if I mind if he jacked off in front of me. He was really wearing me down, but I just shook my head. This negro gonna then ask me if I would leave the room. I just gave him MY LOOK but I pretended to get up off the bed to leave and he pulled me back down. Playing all these games when the inevitable was sure to show up, right.

So I am chilling watching this flick and I see BJ get up and straddle my ass and starts kissing my neck and I close my eyes and ahhh its been awhile. It felt soo good. He is very good with his mouth. I can feel him rubbing his dick behind me and its turning me on more while he is kissing down my neck..then down my back..and then plants a kiss on my ass. Oh-My- God. Could this be heaven?

He turns me around on my back and kisses my breast giving each one equal attention and paying close attention to the nipples. He sucks ’em just like I like them. I trail my fingers across his cheek to his ears then tangle my fingers inside of his hair as he kisses his way down my body. He licks his way down my stomach to my navel and sticks his tongue deep inside of my navel. He unbuttons my pants then unzips my pants and slides them down my body -his mouth never leaving my body still kissing his way down until he gets to my pussy. He slides his one finger inside my wet pussy then two and I moan. He pulls my pussy lips apart and starts to softly lick on my pearl tongue then he applies more pressure and ahhh it feels soo damn good. I got my fingers in his hair and grinding my pussy into his face as I watch him rub his dick. Then I come…..

He slides his hard dick inside my wet pussy. When his dick first goes in it feels indescribable. Kinda like a dive in the ocean on a beautiful sunny day when your body hits that water. Yea like that. So he’s moving. It feels perfect. My pussy has a good tight grip on his dick and he’s moaning and I am moaning and were grinding and just when I am about to come he finishes. Oh talk about mad. I was. “Nigger what? I c ain’t nothing changed ” I say. LOL. He goes damn its because you feel soo good and you soo tight and wet. Damn its just something about your pussy. LOL.

I’m not really mad because either way I did come and I enjoyed it while it lasted.

Daddy’s Little Girl

Yesterday my dad was supposed to come visit me and spend the weekend with me however yet again he stood me up. I hate when people make a ton of promises that they don’t keep. Funny thing is I never ask my father for anything …he always  just tells me he is going to do this this and that and rarely does anything.

I see my dad maybe once a month. Lately he has been coming around the 1st of the month to buy me groceries since me and the ex have broke up he has said he wants to help me out. This is nothing I asked him for however it is very kind of him to do this. My dad is 57 years old and still acts like he is 18. My dad has more fun than me. He loves to party, drink, and have a good time. Often times he likes to spend time with his friends more than he does with me and I am kinda upset that he hardly has time to spend with me. I mean we hardly get to kick it enough as it is.

Yesterday when he called me, I missed his call so he left a voicemail on my machine around 12 in the afternoon. It wasn’t even an hour later when I returned his call and found out that he had already left. I thought maybe he was on his way, but he never showed up.  I was upset because we had already made plans for yesterday and him coming to spend the weekend with me. I told him I would be home all day and it seems to me he was just looking for  a reason to not show up. So I called him all day and I guess he didn’t make it home until today when he calls to tell me he is sorry and that he spunt the birthday money he promised me. Uuhh! I mean I don’t care if he gave me money or not its just the principle of people doing what they say they are going to do and with me that never happens and people know that I am soo forgiven and I often get taken for granted. I am tired of people letting me down because I always stand by my word. If I am going to do something I do it.

I don’t want to cut my dad out of my life because I love him but I am tired of being disappointed by the people that mean the most to me. This is not the first time that he has let me down. I have cancelled plans before for him to have him never show up. I have had him promise to show up to my house on holidays and him tell me that he is too tired to come.

Sometimes I feel as if I am in this world alone. I tell you 😦


How Could I Forget To Mention??

BJ called me on my birthday. When I was at work yesterday, I received a call from “private” and I don’t usually answer private phone calls but I picked the phone up without thinking. Then I heard his voice. I got real quiet. 1. I was happy to hear from him. 2. I was still upset with him about what he did. You know we really had not had a chance to talk at all about everything that had went on and about him stop calling. The only information I had was the information that he had left on my voicemail from the times I had missed his phone calls.

I was real cordial towards him. I didn’t get upset and yell at him. I thanked him for calling on my birthday and told him I was surprised that he remembered (damn shame my ex could not even call me on my birthday). We spoke a little bit. Yes, he and the girl he is staying with hooked up. (Uhhhhhh!!! Thats crazy. I knew it. I dont care what anyone says men and women cannot be just friends.) It just happened supposedly. He didn’t want to tell me about it because he did not want to be made to feel like a dog. He said he wishes  now that he could have been more patient with me. He knew that I would not be okay with continuing seeing him while he was living with this girl and having relations (my word) so he thought it would be easier to just stop calling. He says that he still cares about me and he is basically using this girl for a place to lay his head until he gets on his feet ( THAT I have a problem with ..if you can use her you can use me as well and I am not about to be used again by anyone.  I don’t use anyone and I dislike people that do it to other people.) You know my mind starts swirling and thinking the worst like he probably stopped calling because he found out that he could not use me so therefore he had no use for me. Damn shame. I mean he was good company.

BJ says he still wants to see me sometimes just to spend time with me and nothing else (yeah right).  I mean I am upset and then I am not upset. I am upset because I really liked  him and I felt good when I was around him. I met BJ when I just broke it off with my ex so I told him from the get go I wasn’t ready for anything serious and I told him to see other people even though he said he didn’t want to. Everything would probably be okay if he wasn’t staying with this girl. To me, thats what makes everything different. I mean you let ya’lls friendship lead into something more when you had sex so regardless of what type of relationship you guys claim ( because supposedly she told him to see other people too) thats a little too weird for me to be caught up in a love triangle or a sex triangle (or whutever). If he was seeing someone else that he told me he wasn’t just friends with and he wasn’t staying with her I think I would be okay with it. I don’t know.

I would love to remain friends with BJ but if I invite BJ over and we watch a movie or whatnot because of our history together…. other things would happen. I know me.

Another one bites the dust……

Happy Birthday to Me. I am 25.

Another boring birthday. I really did not make plans for today however I did tell my aunt that I would go out with her and her gf (before the cut the cheese incident) to a gay club they frequent. I was surprised my aunt called me this morning and left a voicemail on my phone wishing me a happy birthday. I was working so I didn’t have a chance to answer the phone. When I got home, her gf called me about 9 to find out if I was still going out with them but I didn’t answer the phone. I don’t know I don’t like drama and the incident from the day before left a bad taste in my mouth to where I just felt like I did not want to be bothered.

My co-worker Joanne had wanted to go out to eat on my birthday, but I didnt really want to do anything. I would have liked to go out to the club but I don’t have no girlfriends who will club with me. Sad I know. But I cannot say I am sorry for the way my birthday was spent. I just  lounged around the house and got a lot of much needed rest.

I am happy I can get in the 25 and over clubs, which is the only clubs I like to frequent anyway. Maybe I will find me a going out partner one day. Everyone wanted to go out with me when I didn’t want to go out and now that I do I can’t get anyone to go out with me.

25–thats the age I wish I could remain forever but I know it won’t be long before I start making my way to 30.


Who cut the cheese?

Happy Valentine's Day Myspace Comments
Well I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s day. I am happy that day is long gone. That was the first time in close to 7 years that I did not have a Valentine and guess what? That punk (my ex) did not even call me. I guess its good that he is moving on with his life but it still hurts that I think of him a lot and I am not on his mind.

I took off early and went to my aunt house because she wanted me to run her to her friend house, however when I got there she told me she decided not to go. As usual, she was having some problems with her gf so she started telling me about their latest argument. She wanted me to run her to the pawn shop to get some things out of layaway that she had there so I did that.

This is sooo stupid but this is how petty my family can be sometimes. We had a good time all day laughing and joking but on the way dropping her home we had one of the stupidest argument I have ever had with anyone. This smell came into the car like somebody had died or something. I thought my Aunt had passed gas because thats what she do. My aunt ain’t got no problems in passing gas in front of whomever. After a couple of minutes this foul odor did not go away, so even though it was cold outside I lowered my window some to let some fresh air in. I didn’t say anything to her.

After I let the air in, she goes why you do that? I look at her increduously and said “you don’t smell that? You farted didn’t you?” She looked at me and said that she had not done it and told me that I did it. I knew I had not passed gas so I thought she was just playing. You know when you are kids you play “you did it” “no you did it” when the person that really did it be lying all along. So I thought she was playing but after I insisted that she did it she started getting serious. Why I dont understand? It wasn’t something in my opinion to take serious. I was laughing and joking and to be honest I did think she was joking and had actually done it until too late I guess I looked over and saw she had this mean look on her face. LOL I am sorry but that is soo stupid to get upset over “Who cut the cheese?” If I had known she was serious I would not even carried on the way I did.

When we got to her house. I started not to go upstairs inside her place because she seemed to be in a bad mood, but I went ahead and went inside and I wasn’t going to stay long. When we got inside, I asked her why was she getting all upset? She started saying because she knew that she didn’t pass gas and that she put that on her mother’s grave and all this. I mean ok you didn’t pass gas ..thats fine.. but why get all huffy over it. So I told her I wasn’t her gf and that I wasn’t going to argue with her and she said to me “All of ya’ll can just leave me the hell alone. I don’t need any of you in my life” So affter she said that what the heck I’mma stick around for. I politely got up said bye and left.

This is the stupid childish stuff that goes on in my family. Folks stop talking behind crap. Does anyone else family do this?


Beyonce does Sports Illustrated-Swimsuit Issue 2007

All of the swimsuits used in her photos here are apart of her and her mother’s clothing line House of Dereon. There seems to be a lot of hating on this girl (no big surprise there!!) She did Sports Illustrated whoop teee doo. Why does THAT have to be made into some big controversy like everything else she does? She cannot help that she is talented guys of course you are going to be seeing a lot of her. She’s a go-getter. People are saying because Jennifer Hudson got on the cover of Vogue, B had to go  get herself on the cover of SI.  I say both of these magazines are pretty white so congratulations to both ladies for not only getting inside, but ON THE COVERS!! THATS BIG!! B do your thang while ya’ll talking she still stacking that paper. Cha Ching. Image Hosted by

I found my nephew!!!

I am soo ecstatic that I finally got a chance to meet my nephew!!!!! I cant believe he turns 14 in April.

My brother, now deceased, had a son when he was 17 and I never got a chance to meet him. Actually no one in my family has gotten a chance to meet my nephew. My brother was not really being the father he was meant to be with his son so thats kinda the reason why.

How this meeting all came about? I have been wanting to meet my nephew since like forever. My niece who is 11, always brings up to me how she wants to see the brother she never met. My supervisor has a membership with so I asked him if he could look up a name for me. I had the name of my brother’s high school girlfriend and I was just hoping that her last name had not changed. Well good news!!! Her last name was still the same and my supervisor located her for me and gave me her telephone number!! It took me a couple of days of thinking about what to say when finally my niece mother, whom I work with , came to my desk at work today, a couple of days after I had receive this telephone number from my supervisor in order to discuss my recent trip with my niece, I mentioned to her that I had received this number for my nephew’s mother. She got real excited I believe because my niece had been mentioning to her how much she wanted to meet him so she asked me to give her the number which I did. Not even 10 minutes later she comes back to my desk at work and lets me know that she called this girl and she wants to meet everyone!! We had the meeting set up for Sunday however my nephew’s mom got soo excited that she called my sister-in-law back and wanted to do it today.

We set the meeting up for Wok-Bo , a chinese restaurant here in Houston, and wow he is soo handsome and tall. I thought my nephew would look more like my brother since my niece looks just liker her dad but my nephew actually takes after his mom a lot. I was sooo happy and excited to meet him and was beyond words. This is truly a joyous occasion that I will remember for the rest of my life. We have Sunday set up to meet again and go bowling. My only hope is that me and my nephew can forge a great bond 🙂


Missed Again

 Saturday I spent some time with my niece for the first time in forever. I took her to Rodeo In The Park at Kelsey Seybold, The Children’s Museum, and the movies because she hadn’t seen Dreamgirls. We had fun 🙂 While we were out I missed Bj call. Its funny because I was really looking forward to his call and I missed it again. The thing is I have Sprint and my cell rings when it wants to. I really hate Sprint service and a lot of people be thinking i be igging them but its not me its the phone. I actually had it out with a guy I was talking to a couple of months ago because he said my phone was ringing and I never would answer and he had called me several times. The thing is my phone never rang and he did not believe me.  I didn’t even know anyone had called until I went to use my phone it said no service, so I turn it off and turn it back on, and after I turn it back on then my phone starts going off like crazy from all the voicemails that was sent to me. Crazy.

But anyways, I missed Bj call and he sent me a message talking about I am ignoring him because I forwarded his call to my voicemail ( I didn’t was the phone) and he guesses I don’t want to talk to him anymore and he apologizes deeply for what I am feeling. Yadda yadda Yaaa. I was waiting soo long for him to call me and when I missed his call I started thinking maybe that was for the best and maybe I should just let him go and move on.

In other news, I started talking back to Rich again. I dont know why and what for. It seems like when I get lonely I tend to fall back on him and he really ain’t no one to be falling back onto. He fools me everytime because he will start off talking to me like he got some sense and then he results back to being immature and pathetic. I love him soo much. I mean I figured out I spent close to 7 years with him and that means a quarter of my life was spent with. Thats a great deal! He concerns me because when I was talking to him he pointed out that he was thinking about just dropping in on me to see me. NO NO. I need to talk to him, because whether we cool or not you don’t just drop in on me at no point in time. I kinda feel sorry for him because he is going on 40 and has never been married . You would think he would look at that and be like what is up with me? I don’t think he knows what love is. He tells me that I never loved him. I mean Stevie Wonder could see that I did love that boy. I mean I loved him more that I loved myself. One day I shall learn.


RIP Anna Nicole Smith (Nov 28, 1967 – Feb 8, 2007)
Vickie Lynn Marshall, better known by her stage name Anna Nicole Smith, was an American model, actress and celebrity who first gained popularity as Playboy’s 1993 Playmate of the Year.

She was mostly known by her highly publicized marriage to oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall, who was 63 years her senior, resulted in considerable speculation that she married the octogenarian merely for his money, which she denied. Following his death, she began a lengthy and ongoing legal battle over a share of his estate.

While growing up, Vickie told others she wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe. She failed her freshman year at Mexia High School in Mexia, Texas, dropped out of her sophomore year, and never progressed past an eighth grade education.While working as a waitress at Jim’s Krispy Fried Chicken in Mexia, she met Billy Wayne Smith, who was the cook at the restaurant. The couple married April 4, 1985. She was then age 17 and he was 16. The next year, she gave birth to their son, Daniel Wayne Smith (January 22, 1986–September 10, 2006). She and Billy separated in 1987 and she moved to Houston with one-year-old Daniel. Initially, she found employment at Wal-Mart and later as a waitress at Red Lobster. She then became a stripper at a nightclub in Houston.

Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, was born September 7, 2006, at Doctors Hospital in Nassau, Bahamas. The Bahamian birth certificate records the father as Howard K. Stern and that paternity is still in question as 2 more men have come forward to state they are the father.

Anna Nicole’s death comes just 5 months after the death of her son, age 20. Daniel died from a lethal combination of Zoloft, Lexapro and methado.

The medical examiner has reported that the official cause of her death is still unknown. The police chief has said that there is no indication that a crime has occurred in Smith’s death. There were no illegal drugs found in the hotel room, only prescription drugs. Preliminary results of the autopsy found no drugs in Smith’s stomach.


Well He Ain’t Dead…Yet!

Well it worked. Bj called back yesterday but i missed his call. He left this long drawn out message on my voice mail. It was good to hear his voice and I was happy that he wasn’t in an alley dead somewhere but upset that he actually did stop calling but at least he did call with an explanation…somewhat. I am still lost.

His message:

How you doing? This Bj *uhhhh  long sigh “ahhhhh”* I guess you called me yesterday.  I havent called you because *another long sigh* then  he says “I dont know.” (Greaaaat!!!)

“I want to be with you and I told you that but you know our situation and everything and I dont know. It was just hard for me…… “(to what??..he did not even finish the sentence but he goes on to say..)

“I guess we still gone be friends or whatever. I dont know. (Greaaat!!)

“I dont know what you wanna say so I am just saying hey how you doing and I’ll call you later on to discuss whatever it is you want to discuss”

(Okay then he continues)

“But I been worried about you and thinking about you everyday. For real…but I don’t know cause I want somebody in my life because I’ve been lonely and I don’t know I guess you probably been lonely .I guess thats the reason why you called yesterday, but I thought it was just gonna be easier just to you know do it like I did it.”

“My feelings are real confused. I don’t think I could stop you know and just be friends or whatever. You know that I live with that girl and I know you probably don’t like that but I just want to be with somebody.” ( I am confused on this part. I mean is he trying to say him and his friend hooked up or whatever)

Men can cause sooo much pain sometimes.  But its whatever. I am just upset that he was just gonna stop calling and not tell me anything.


Alert The Police

Do I need to file a missing person report? I am still missing BJ. I got it bad. Embarrassingly I called the County Jail as well as the City Jail to see if the boy had gotten locked up or sumthin. I guess I just don’t want to believe that he would just stop calling me like that. That blows my mind. Woooooo….When I found out that he was not in either I then started thinking worse like maybe he’s in the hospital so I called the county hospital and when I found out that he wasn’t there I did a search online to find out how can I find out if a person was submitted to a morgue. Like maybe I need to go identify his body or what not. Yes. I . Did. think. that. Then I decided to chill. Face the facts he stopped calling, but could I blame him I told him to do that anyway *looking sheepish* I been telling him that we should stop seeing each other because I didn’t see the relationship going anywhere. I guess he finally listened and maybe its all for the best.

I wanted to call his friend soo bad to find out if she had heard from him but I know how females are when another female call their phone. I dont know her like that. So I called but then hung up before she answered . She called back and I then turned my phone off. I am sure she will tell him that I called and if he is still living he will call back and then I can curse him out .



I haven’t heard from BJ since Wednesday. Its like the boy has vanished in thin air. I am worried about him. I just hope that he’s okay. He didn’t come to me as the type to just stop calling. Last I heard from him was on Wednesday night he said he was having a little difficult and he would call me on Thursday and he never called back. I thought about calling his friends to see what the deal was but I don’t really know them well enough like that and plus just because I said he doesn’t seem like the type to stop calling doesn’t mean he didnt. I don’t put anything past no man anymore, but I still don’t think that’s the case with him. He’s a very straight up guy and he always lets me know what the business is. I will put him my prayers wherever he might be. I miss him.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usBorn in Houston in the fall of 1981, Beyonce Giselle Knowles started performing at age seven. From dance classes to singing in the church choir, Beyonce was a natural. She and cousin Kelly Rowland met Latavia Roberson during this time, and the trio formed a group with Letoya Luckett. Mathew Knowles, Beyonce's father and Rowland's legal guardian, signed on to be the girls' manager. This situation would ultimately lead to the formation of one of the most popular female R&B groups of all time -- Destiny's Child. Destiny's Child made its debut 1990 and within ten years, the vocal act had experienced personal and political highs and lows that fueled the group's desire to make it big. Destiny's Child sold 33 million albums worldwide by 2002 and earned a slew of Grammys and additional music awards. "Jumpin' Jumpin'," "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Say My Name," and "Survivor" were smash hits, and the group appeared unstoppable. In 2001, Beyoncé, Rowland, and Michelle Williams allowed themselves a break from the singing group and tried their hands at individual solo careers. Before landing several movie roles, Beyoncé became the first African-American female artist and second woman ever to win the annual ASCAP Pop Songwriter of the Year Award. An appearance in the MTV drama Carmen: A Hip Hopera quickly followed, but it was her role as Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember in 2002 that eventually moved Beyoncé from the stage to the screen. Her first single, "Work It Out," coincided with the release of the Mike Myers comedy and cemented her celebrity status. A guest spot on Jay-Z's "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" was equally popular when it appeared in October. In 2003, she rejoined Jay-Z for her proper debut single, the funkadelic "Crazy in Love," as the press and fans christened her a bona fide star. Beyoncé's debut album, Dangerously in Love, which appeared in June 2003, featured collaborations with Sean Paul, Missy Elliott, and OutKast's Big Boi. The multi-platinum album spawned a total of four Top Ten singles. Nearly two years after another Destiny's Child album (Destiny Fulfilled), Beyoncé released her second album, B'day. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide... website statistics
