Why ask Why

We all have questions, so here is my 25 why's (actually 30... I cheated on the last section). You take 5 different topics and ask 5 questions about them. Things that bother you, or that you just wonder about from time to time.

About Eb the Celeb
do I let people get to me when I know their not worthy
why: am I so loud sometimes
why: do I over analyze everything
why: am I not closer to God when I know better
why: am I single

why: do people hate because regardless I'ma do me
why: do we try to find meaning in everything
why: do we let corporate america pimp us
why: does what we do for a living define who we are
why: do our words mean so much

why: do they think with the head between their legs more than the one on their shoulders
why: can they make women lose they damn mind
why: when they do something sweet do we get that sprinkled glitter feeling
why: don't I have one and yet too many at the same time
why: do I love being around them so much

why: can't I be the first female head coach of a NFL team
why: is the season taking so long to get here
why: am I not at all hype about this year's draft
why: are my cowboys becoming the haven for bad boys (TO, Tank, and now possibly Pacman)
why: do I love football so

About the blog world
why: do people take it so seriously like its real life
why: are there cliques like we're in high school
why: do people expect you to agree with them all the time
why: do people write for other people and the acceptance of other instead of themselves
why: is this utterz thing so popular because I just don't get it
why: are people obsessed with being the first to comment
why: do people lurk and not comment
why: do bloggers care that people lurk and don't comment
why: do I want to have a NY bloggers meet up so bad
why: do I have so much ish in my sidebar

Sorry I got a little carried away with the blog one didn't I... I guess I'm in a little bit of a blog funk. Me overanalyzing everything again. So don't mind me. What are your WHY's?


Queen of My Castle March 25, 2008 at 4:03 PM

LMAO @ you having too much in your sidebar. I think I mentally commented on that the first time I came here. LOL. I can relate to the over analyzing complex. It drives me crazy yet only feeds my desire to know all that I can know. Crazy! Sometimes I read and don't comment because I truly don't know what to say or sometimes don't know what I think yet until I think about it. Can't relate when it comes to football. Not a fan. Men...they have the gift of gab, but women have the power of persuasion. Go figure! LOL

anonymousnupe March 25, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Why do bloggers care whether commenters do so anonymously or not (it's not like they're gonna use their real names--if they're smart--anyway)?

Why don't we take naps during the workday like they do in other countries?

Why can't the NCAA basketball tournament go on year-round?!

Why did the best show ever on TV ("The Wire") have to go away?

And speakin' of television, why did you go on camera with yo hair lookin' like that?

Why am I stressin' so bad about Grad School?


Anonymous March 25, 2008 at 5:23 PM

Why do I need ID to get ID?

Why is Kwame Kilpatrick refusing to resign?

Why do I agree with you on the NFL draft?

Why won't my 2 year old go to the bathroom but can spell his name and count to ten?

Why can't I be more simple?

Brittany_83 March 25, 2008 at 8:37 PM

I hate lurkers.

About the blog world
why when you comment on people's blog daily(every post) and they never seem to EVER make it to your blog to post.

MsRoxy March 25, 2008 at 10:29 PM

Alright let me comment and not be a lurker. Lol.

I'm with you on the over analyzing thing!

Eb the Celeb March 25, 2008 at 10:39 PM

@ Nupe - im gon beat yo butt... I was still sexy without my herrrrr did... lol

@iesha - Lmao @ ya son...

Mizrepresent March 25, 2008 at 10:54 PM

why- do i care if anyone visits my blog.

why- do i check to see if anyone visited?

why - do i over analyze...yes i do, all the time.

why - do i want a man, but when i get a man, don't want the man.

why - don't i care if you lurk, but it would be nice if you sent a shout out, every now and then.

why - do all the men bloggers get an overwhelming response from women and the women blogs get a underwhelming response from men.

why - are we so sexual?

why - can't i have what i want, when i want it, with who i want?

why - do bugs want to live inside, when they have the entire outside to live. (without the threat of being killed)

why - do i hate driving over roadkill...it's dead already.

why did i delete the first 5 whys...because i don't know why.

DollFace March 25, 2008 at 11:05 PM

Why do I stress myself out?

Why am I paying so much for my freaking graduate degree?

Why am I waiting for you to plan an NY blogger meetup so I can have some fun?

Why don't you start a Black NY Blogger group on meetup.com?

Why do people wanna piss on me and tell me it's raining?

Anonymous March 25, 2008 at 11:23 PM

Why I can't be the first female head coach of the NFL? Yes Eb you got some competition! I know football. The draft: I'm only interested in where "hometown" Darren McFadden goes in the draft. (by the way he was robbed of the Heisman!). His issues from last year, as they say, could have ruined his chances @ being #1. Why is my NCAA bracket already jacked up? I don't comment sometimes bc I just don't have anything to say. So I don't force it. @ Leisha, I feel your pain. My son just turned 3 and he won't go to the bathroom. They say boys are harder but damn!

anonymousnupe March 25, 2008 at 11:52 PM

Why is Eb right about her hotness in spite of her tousled coif on camera?

Why can't the local news go into the hood and interview ONE intelligent brutha or sista about a story?

JayBee March 26, 2008 at 8:46 AM

Why can't I find a job?

Why does my pops keep calling me know that I don't want sh@t to do with him?

Why won't I step to her? She probably came to the AKA thing this past weekend.

Why do I start checking blogs as soon as I get home from work? Never at work, it's kinda like my welcome home/relaxation ritual.

Why do people think that because you're single they should be able to indiscriminately encumber your time and finances? I don't have kids because of the decisions that I've made. It's not my issue that daycare is expensive. Get another job.

Why do I feel like I need to stop now? If nt I'll be done wrote a blog post?

Why don't people respond to comments consistently. When I comment, I'd like to see your response.

Smarty Jones March 26, 2008 at 11:42 AM

Eb, when you are the first female head coach, I want to be the first to interview for the offensive coordinator job. ;-)
As for my 'whys,' here they are:
- do I lose motivation so quickly?
- do people insist on pissing me off at work?
- can't I get paid to blog full-time?
- do men think they're smarter than women?
- do I spend half my day procrastinating and the other half being upset because I can't get a hold of people?
- do I try to screen everything I write in my blog so my dad doesn't get mad when he reads it?

"why: do I let people get to me when I know their not worthy
why: do I over analyze everything
why: am I not closer to God when I know better
why: am I single"

I'm definitely feeling you here.

"why: are my cowboys becoming the haven for bad boys (TO, Tank, and now possibly Pacman)"

Seems like but I think the Cowboys have always had that rep. I'm glad Tank and Pacman are there. I'm so itching to see my boys play.

The Jaded NYer March 26, 2008 at 1:58 PM

I like this one...

WHY can't I just finish my thesis edits already?

WHY can't me and a friend settle this petty squabble we're in the middle of?

WHY do I ignore important things until it becomes a dire emergency?

WHY am I so addicted to food?

WHY can't I just let go of the sad things that plague me?

WHY has my non-money making blog become more important to me than my paying gigs?
