8 bloggers I read on the regular

1. kyle's 12th Planet - because he's my big blog brother, and threatens me if I haven't been over to the planet on that day, so I really have no choice but to read him
2. The Jaded NYer - because she's so real and doesn't care if you like what she has to say or not, or whether its right or wrong, or whether or not you will judge her for it
3. Eclectik - because his randomness is so addictive, how could I not check him out... and then when I roll over there and am pleasantly surprised and blessed with a dimeline, no matter what may have happened in my day... it makes me feel all warm inside
4. Prettyblack - because she is a woman of my own heart, she will cuss you out and praise God in the same sentence.... and it doesn't hurt that she's a Cowboy fan either
5. Soumynona - He's my blog husband... and even though he doesn't blog often, I still go there everyday to see if he posted something, and if not, I just sit there and play that bubble game he has on his page...lol
6. Pocahontaz - She never ceases to amaze me... and because of her I have been able to share my developing freaky side with the world...lol
7. Flyyest - Because I feel like if she moved her tail to NYC we would be the best of friends, and because I gotta keep tabs on her to make sure she hasn't stole another one of my blog boyfriends from me
8. Skoolboi Krush - Because his love journey has been so inspiring to me... his experiences and advice has made me wiser in my current situations

***Disclaimer... there's more blogs I read on the regular but they said only 8, so all I didn't get to shout this time... I'll get you next time... Love is LOVE!

Charles May 9, 2008 at 12:31 PM

I'm not too much into reading fictional books...but the right ones could open that up for me. Some of those blogs I read regularly too...so I def get you on that. When I don't have ish to write about...I might jack your post. Hold up...let me change that 'might' to 'will'.

Fact or Fiction Friday?

I didn't know Hill Harper had a book out for the ladies! Yes! Now I will just have to wait for him to do a book signing at Hueman so I can meet him and make him my future ex-husband.

And Love Jones is one of my faves!

Kayos May 9, 2008 at 1:56 PM

You watch Necessary Roughness...you know that was filmed here in Texas *WINK*. I know how you feel on that!

I love the audio track...I feel you on the "whateva". DOn't got you on the retarded but I will say "You so stupid".

That's cool and real.

Pajnstl May 9, 2008 at 2:19 PM

Have a good weekend chic!

Marleaux May 9, 2008 at 5:10 PM

lmao at you saying folks around you are retarded, but I know what you mean.

I love me some Teedra. Bacstroke and Rescue Me are still in my top 25 played.

The Notebook is on my list. My boyfriend even likes that movie. And LMAO at the Jacksons American Dream. I forgot about that one.

Brown Girl Gumbo May 9, 2008 at 7:05 PM

I can watch Coming to America, Love Jones and the Notebook over and over.

I'm reading Hill Harper's new book now. Amy DuBois Barnett's "Get Yours" was a good read too.
