Im no Clepto, but I do steal . . .

May 17, 2006
No, I don't were raggedy shoes and walk out of Parisian's (which has some really cute dresses for the season!) with the new purple suede pumps this old lady was feeling on my feet. I steal good ideas and practices I like. It's like Sarah's wack excuse for stealing Joanie's elephant poses "Copying someone is a form a flattery, right?" but Im not in a America's Next Top Blogger competition, so it doesnt matter:). This is my disclaimer: I have stolen this survey from Michael's blog b/c I enjoyed reading it and will begin to have my own sort of music selection that fits my post, like Yasmine's 'Now Playing.' Ciara's "I want the title" is still playing in my head from her last post . . .

Four Your Info (and mine too since it forces me to think)

Four jobs I've had in my life:

1. Saedi & Wells, LLC - my first real job that paid. I was a clerk at a family friends' law firm. Long lunches, good pay, great perks:)
2. Upscale Magazine Intern - my pay was in articles and free books . . . does that count?
3. Hilltop Newspaper - staff writer, asst. campus editor, managing editor
4. Knight Ridder/ Tribune Campus Intern - paid in one credit and make-up and other products I reviewed. A great experience of being a meat ball in a bowl of rice cuz going to Howard you can sometimes forget you are a minority. I was reminded hear when I found collagen Lip pumping Lip Gloss on my desk to review . . .Im 21 and black . . .my lips need no pumping. Though I enjoyed doing the Kwanzaa Primer and it looks HOT! Did they ask me to do it because I was black???




Four Nicknames I have been given:
1. Reah-Riah-Roah, my brother and 3 first cousins = the six cousins. I love those guys. Summers in South Carolina rocked! *That's us playing in the dirt.
2. Re Re- from the song "With the Re Re Re, with the Re Re Re, char"sung to me by the 6 cousin clan:) My mom and other close family and friends calls me this
3. Peppermint Patty - my grandma (paternal) still calls me that to this day. 'A sweet sensation' She saw a mint chocolate commercial when I was little and the name stuck for her chocolate grandbaby.
4. Charree-ree, my FAVORITE nickname that my little sister Deja boo calls me
5. Dark n lovely, chocolate, sexual chocolate, etc. All the bums and nasty old men on the street. I don't answer to any of them. I mean really, do they really think they are original?


Four movies I would watch over and over:

1. Best Man
2. Sister Act Two
3. The six cousin tape where we were baptized by our grandaddy and the pool party that follows and where at 6 I did my runway walk and proclaimed "I am a model"
4. The Last Dragon (thanks to my brother)

Four places I have lived:

1. the same house my whole life of off Columbia Drive in the eastside suburb of Atlanta
2. My grandma's houses in South Carolina when my mom took courses in the summer. awwww the memories
3. Bethune Annex, East Towers - Howard U. The not-so-social/ honors/ scholarship dorms. It was a struggle to meet friends, but somehow I managed:)
4. Though I haven't moved in yet, I will living in Union Square in Manhattan for the summer in NYU's U-hall

Four TV Shows I love to watch:

1. Different World!!!! "What in the hell is that?" true fans can relate:)
2. Living Single. I can so see that being me in my 20s though Kadejah makes starting a magazine look a lot easier than it is
3. UPN has really come up. I LOVE Everybody Hates Chris, ANTM (go Dainelle!!!), Girlfriends (am I the only one who saw that episode when it really wasn't girlfriends but like a spin off with Regina from Steve Harvey and Tia or Tamara with a boyfriend who goes pro. I liked it . ..
4. Disney Channel! That's so Raven, Proud Family, Suite Life of Cody and Zach (don't laugh) I went through withdrawal at Howard. How do you not have Bravo, Oxygen and Disney on cable???

Four places I have been on vacation:

1. Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios - the standard Orlando family trips as a child
2. Spain and Morocco - 10th grade. By far one of the best trips I have ever been on. few chaperones + no ID for drinks = 10-day long party!
3. New Orleans - Im so glad I was able to go when the city was in its glory. Still hard to believe its current state
4. Las Vegas! I leave in the morning. Pray for me as I head to Sin City b/c it's going down(I had to pause to do the motorcycle dance . . . Im back)!!!!!!

Four people I could not live without:

1. My momma. Though I am in my room now b/c we just got into a argument about how I should 'conduct' myself in Vegas. Even though she annoys me since we are so much alike, she is my ROCK!
2. My few great friends led by my B/F. What can I say. I get all I need from those friendships. See you guys at the top . . .And this summer:)
3. My baby sister Deja who keeps me on my toes and all my family that love me for me. If I dropped out of school and became a complete failure, they would still love me, and most importantly, feed me:)
4. the haters. keep me reaching higher. I begin to hum Jill Scott's 'I keep'

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Haagen Daaz Rum Raisin ice cream!!!! I eat it like Im pregnant and it is my craving.
2. Shrimp or Chicken Pad Thai, Chicken Satay and a iced green tea on the side from Simply Home. My favorite meal of the moment from my favorite Thai spot. Though I do want to try Thai-tanic . . .
3. the black-eyed-peas, yams, mac and cheese and collards from Hodge's
4. My Aunt Punchie (Yvonne to non-family:)'s Watergate Salad!!!! It is so good and is like a whipped cream fruit salad with pistachio pudding (so its green!). Man I wish I had gotten her cooking gene instead of my mom's I-burn-pancakes cooking skills. or lack therof.



Four folks who I have tagged:

1. Michael the Cynic that has softened (tag me and I tag you back!)
2. Tia Williams (shake that beauty, people)
3. Yasmine
4. Shani
