Hang on the Mistle Toe

November 18, 2007

Ok, I'm lying. Bring on the Mistle Toe!!!

This Christmas will definitely be a special Christmas for me.

I am so excited fot the holidays . . . even if I am having a few issues with a certain "Ho Ho Ho" in my life.

I kid. I kid. Seriously though, last Thursday I went to a screening of This Christmas and totally got in the holiday mood. That movie was SO funny and I just liked it. Me and my coworkers even put aside our uppity-ness in the loud theater with all these Chris Brown loving kids and their loud mamas. Gotta love the people.

Earlier that day we had our office pot luck so I was definitely feeling in the spirit - literally. That "special" punch was popping.

But what I love about the movie is it was so real and honest and I could relate, without it having a ounce of hood or horribly broken English (No offense to the real Frank Lucas). And y'all, I hate spoilers with a passion, but just know when you see the baby oil be ready to laugh.

Lauren London and CeCe From Dreamgirls (Keith Robinson) played a couple who went to Spelman and Morehouse. Keith's character Devon's explanation of attending an HBCU gave me goose bumps.

So this week I lost the Tina Turner 'do, am back to a sensible bun and working on a new attitude.

    Queen to Be I have a question for you that was asked on my hair board and I thought I'd ask you since you work for Essence!

    This is just an excerpt "I just got my monthly Essence .........I got to the fashion section and the "perfect fit" section in particular stood out. I noticed that the holiday dresses they were showing were all really nice but the smallest size they show an example for is an 8. So I decided to go look at my last 2 Essence mags and sure enough the smallest size was a 6-8 and that was only in one mag, the other the smallest size was a 10 I think in this section. What about those of us who are smaller? Has anyone else noticed this in the magazine?"

    I was just wondering your thoughts. To be honest I like the fact that Essence is doing this. B/c it is hard for size 8 up to find nice fitting trendy clothes.
