Lions, Tigers & Bears - Jazmine Sullivan

yall can't mess with the police...or maybe...

I have no clue who dude is, but my ship sent me this video, and it gave me a little chuckle before work... CPD really is a trip, even though these were apparently cops fromt he suburbs... apparently there was a 14 y.o. kid who was able to impersonate a cop he got a car and everything.

sidenote: i've reallized that i am getting too lazy, because i wanted to gchat my boss to ask him if he needed anything done, rather than walk the 30 feet to his office. i have got to start working out or something!

because i love my prophtyes

i had been thinking about all these things this week, especially the orgasmic births...i wonder if i would be able to take that nontraditional step and go through a midwife...

the oakland thing was so really glad that people decided to protest. i feel like too often things go unspoken, and it ends without any controversy.

burris...well, im just going to say that im disappointed in my state right now.

alvin ailey

ok. so i love modern dance...probably more than most people. i've taken a few classes, and honestly, im hooked on the way it makes me feel. it made me way more aware of the way that my body moves. it made me more flexible, and it was a serious workout. i also love to watch modern. to see the way that people move onstage is amazing. there are so many details that these dancers are attentive to, and i personally think it's amazing. that said, im trying to go see alvin ailey when they come to chicago in early april..i think i may make this a self date because i don't know that I know anyone who would really enjoy it...maybe i need some new so excited for April!!!
