Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

First post in August? & random thoughts

*Is this really my first post in August? I've been slipping *Guess who reappeared again a few weeks ago....E. Yeah, he's been the subject of various posts both in this blog and also in my first one. I honestly thought we were done last year, when some idiot saboteur sent him the link to my post professing my love for him. Anyway, he calls me at 1AM, and leaves a message. I took my sweet time returning the call, and when I did, I was completely and utterly disinterested. I had nothing to say. Amazing. We've done this back and forth, on and off, talking and not thing since 2003, and now I'm finally done. I have no desire to sit on his bench and wish, hope and pray that he sees how fabulous I am. That is not my idea of a fun time anymore. I'm 26 now, no more time for waiting around. He may not think that I'm fabulous, but I KNOW I AM, and therefore I'm done. Nice.

*Went to the beach with my friend RJ this weekend. It was a perfect day for the beach, hot as hell and sunny. The water felt great, and I laid out and got so brown, I love it. I'm very brown now, and my red undertones have come out. I foresee more trips to the beach in my future.

* Ok, so I don't remember if I blogged about this, but I no likey Lupe Fiasco. His total flub of the first verse of "Electric Relaxation" and then "claiming" that he never listened to ATCQ growing up totally pissed me off. I'm a chick from Lansing MI and I know that song word for word, so he has no excuse, cause I know they were listening to Tribe in Chicago. Anyway, I digress....so I've been pretty consistent with my distaste for Lupe, but then he went and seduced me with this:


I love this song! Damn you Lupe! *shakes fist*

*Speaking of videos, the new Kanye video is so ridiculously cute and clever. He's another one that's been seducing me lately....My hatred for his arrogant ass is crumbling...

*Oooh, and I love this video too!


Don't tell anyone, but Fonzworth sorta reminds me of E....

*That new John Legend/Andre 3000 is hot too...SO GLAD Andre is rapping...

*I'm moving! I found a new place downtown, and you have NO IDEA how happy I am to be moving back to civilization. My place is downtown, but right off 408. And its between two lakes, so its kinda secluded, which is perfect. So not a lot of drama, but close to everything. I'm gonna start packing/downsizing this weekend, and I've already lined up my moving crew.

More Stuff I'm Lovin....

Jubi + LoA = success
