Randomness at 2 AM

Thanks to our marathon NYC tour (me and my sister saw much of Harlem, a good portion of Central Park, explored the opulence of 5th Ave, and strolled through Chelsea), I collapsed on my bed around 8pm and didn't wake up until around midnight...two hours ago. Thanks to my "nap," I'm not at all ready to sleep. I'm watching Jerry McGuire on TBS (I used to think it was a good movie, but seeing it as an adult it just looks overly-dramatic and not all that entertaining), listening to my "Recently Added" iTunes (some Cassie, Nelly, and Christina Milian), and in general bored out of my mind...hence the early morning blog.

Randomness:

- I don't think Cassie is all that bad! I read Michael's blog entry about Diddy's latest protege, but I have to say that I'm not mad at "Me & U,"' and I don't think she's all that stiff....maybe I'm just part of the group of simpletons who are easily appeased by the music industry's piss-poor offerings....

-You know what's even scarier than NOT knowing what you want to do with your life?? THINKING that you have this great, masterplan mapped out and then finding out, in like the 2nd inning (I don't know if that's the right analogy...I'm not really a sports fan) that you really don't want what you thought you did. For the past few years my goals have been very clear: Graduate, move to NY, work for magazine. But now that I'm hear, in NY, I see that it's not all its cracked up to be. At the end of the day, NY is just a city. An overpriced city. A cold city. A city that's far from my family. The passion that I used to have for my goals is gone...or at least the flame is flickering. I don't know if I want to move to NY, moving home would seem like a step backward...I don't know.

-I recently saw a DEEPLY disturbing tribute to Jigga (I don't care what anybody says...I'm going to marry that man, we're meant for each other!!!) featuring B, his mom, and that guy that he hangs with...you know the one that supposedly pepper-sprayed R. Kelly. Take a look.

-Cuba Gooding, Jr. (yes, I'm back on Jerry McGuire) used to be a pretty good actor...what happened?

Great entry, horrible taste in music.

Ok...her song is kind of catchy, but she can't sing or dance worth a damn. Stiff isn't even the word to describe her off brand two step.

I just saw that "tribute" to Jay Z ... why did Beyonce use that cornrow 99cents hair instead of regular sewn in weave hair?
