I theorize that collective mentality is making time pass faster. If everyone stops “thinking” the time is passing quickly then it won’t.


Can you hear me now?

I don’t know why, but I was just thinking about something. When I was still in middle school or maybe even as old as high school I would let the deaf girl at church put her hand on my throat during song practice. She seemed to find it funny or maybe she just thought I was nuts. But I swear I saw that on an educational video at school. Someone somewhere taught a deaf girl to hear by letting her feel the vibrations the throat makes when speaking or singing.

Anyway, she never learned to talk, but it’s not because I didn’t try.

You’re Not Jewish, Get Over It!Why Can’t You Just Be Black?Your Black Cousins

You’re Not Jewish, Get Over It!
Why Can’t You Just Be Black?
Your Black Cousins

These are fictional titles to books I wish someone would write. Since I’m only the title maker, not the author, I can’t cover in great detail what these books would cover, but I have an idea of what the subject matter would be.

You’re Not Jewish, Get Over It is for that special someone who just can’t seem to get through his thick skull that he is not Jewish. Not being Jewish can be tough to cope with. I know. But think of this book as a how-to, ten-step program of how cutting down one’s addiction can be easy if you put your mind to it. It also shares, if you truly desire to be Jewish, how you can convert.

Why Can’t You Just Be Black? This is for all those folks out there who are running the race Olympics. Why can’t black folks just be black? Why does you’re grandma have to be half this and half that? I’m sure some of all that is legit and this book will cover that, but for everyone else who just can’t cope, this book teaches you how to truly fall in love your blackness.

Your Black Cousins is for the white man in denial. You know you got some black cousins because of slavery and the legal raping of black women for years on end. This book shows you how to seek out your black cousins, embrace them, and welcome your new cousins into your family. And all the while learning how to be a loving, kind, responsible, human being.

Now, I’m not telling you what to do, but for all you writers out there, this is some premium stuff. The titles alone would be a sure bet you’d be a best-seller. I only ask that if you actually use one of my titles you let me know so I can pick up a copy when it’s published.

They look alike, see:

I was watching “William Eggleston in the Real World” and thought that young William Eggleston looks a lot like Marc Jacobs, but current William Eggleston reminds me of Gregory peck.

I went to whole foods earlier this evening and my total was $7.77 at the checkout. It’s better than $6.66 I’m sure.

So I was wondering…

Are we not supposed to notice that Nicholas Cage has hair now?

My current creed

as a single woman: if i put myself first everything else will fall into place.

i’m feeling much more functional* these days.

*feel free to substitute “functional” for any of the words: happy, social, insightful, positive, less foggy, creative, productive, excited, relaxed…
