What is a RBW to do?


So I have tix to the Maxwell/Jazmine Sullivan concert on Thursday and don't know who to take with me.

I was suppose to take NC boo formerly known as Bugaboo because his birthday was yesterday and I thought it would be a nice little gift. But I just got word he wont be here. He'll be in NC. So now I don't know who to take.

Semipro? No, I just feel like that would be a little too mooshy for both our tastes. I mean he did reach out to me the day after the relapse. Which really caught me off guard. I thought it would at least be a couple days before I heard from him again. Friday night we had a heart to heart. Talked about a lot of things. I probably learned more about him in that one convo than the 6 or so something months we were kickin' it. I just feel like if I invite him that he will think he's back in good and that ain't the case.

Badboy? Who I've never mentioned before. We've been talking on the phone lately. Someone I used to talk to when I first moved to NY but me and my ex were still going back and forth and he came off pretty corny anyway. We never went on a date or anything but I saw him recently in the club and he was looking cuter than I remembered so we exchanged numbers again. I'm still so not feeling him though... he only calls late at night and still hasn't mentioned a date. He calls when he's in the neighborhood and I always tell him I don't feel like having company... so still lame!

Thuggin Boo - Me and him hardly ever talk. Maybe once a week and its always the same jive about how we need to go out on a date. A jersey boy that never comes to the city, and I'm a city girl that never goes to jersey. He's cool though, so at least I know if I take him I will have a good time.

I have opted out taking one of my homeboys... because that would just be weird and we would just clown each other the whole night and this is more of a cuddling type of show.

Or I could just take one of my homegirls who would die to go and see Maxwell.

Or maybe I should do some sort of contest and take one of the NYC bloggers with me.

So what do ya'll think I should do???

No matter who it is they are taking me out to dinner first... shoot that's the least they can do for a free ticket to a show like this, and ya'll know Eb loves a free meal...lol!

Jazmine Sullivan is such a talent!!! Have fun with whomever you choose to go with you! :-)

The Jaded NYer October 6, 2008 at 9:04 PM

if there's no guy you want to spend the evening with at the concert, I'd take a friend who you could clown with all night.

(normally I'd demand to go to the show, but I'm over Maxwell and I've never even heard a Jazmine S. song!)

dessex October 6, 2008 at 9:13 PM

Maxwell....Damn I always wanted to see that man in concert. Take a homegirl...and make it a ladies night.

Emeritus October 6, 2008 at 9:26 PM

im all for the homegurl or blogger pick. let us know what u do and take pics!

ps: you got hooked on that song "release me" by dawn richard.

Suite B October 6, 2008 at 9:31 PM

I say take Semipro...you can control if things get to mushy and maybe hearing "bust your windows" might lighten the mood or make his azz act like a perfect gentleman

Keith October 6, 2008 at 9:46 PM

There's a Thought..Take Semi-Pro.
He might feel so bad about the way he's treated you that he might just
"man up" and ask you to be his girlfriend. hey you never know til
you try..

Go Cowboys!!!!!

(You know you must be alright with me because I would never utter those two words for anybody else..
but I know you been feelin some kind of way lately and I want you to smile.)

WiZ October 6, 2008 at 10:09 PM

have fun at the concert beautiful

Ms. Bar B: October 6, 2008 at 10:34 PM

Since it seems like your mind is gonna be wondering and going to places you don't really want it to go with any of your guys, maybe you should take one of your homegirls. I like the blogger idea too. Now that could had some excitement to the night.

1969 October 6, 2008 at 10:45 PM

Eb...I will see you at the concert.
I'm rolling with my best friend and having a girls' night out.

No matter who you take,you will have a good time.

IntrospectiveGoddess October 6, 2008 at 10:52 PM

I say a girlfriend or fellow NYC blogger....so are you still gonna talk to semipro? whats up with that?? Anyway have fun and make sure you take and share pics!

Beautifully.Conjured.Up October 6, 2008 at 10:59 PM

I think you should take me and do away with the BS :)

K. October 7, 2008 at 12:09 AM

take one of your girls. maybe you'll meet someone at the concert or while you're out and about pre/post concert. i try to limit my public outings w/ guys i'm not really feeling or who aren't feeling me b/c u never know when you might meet someone new...someone w/ some REAL potential.

DiamondsR4eva October 7, 2008 at 12:40 AM

If you can't go with the boo cup, or a potential boo then go with the homies or someone you know you're 99.9% sure you'd have a great time with!

Make sure you blog your review I can't wait til he comes to ATL

Eb the Celeb October 7, 2008 at 1:16 AM

@emeritus - girl that is my joint

@suite b - girl what are you doing reading blogs... aren't you suppose to be on a honeymoon somewhere...

@keith - I'm cool now but thx

thx wiz

@1969 - girl I know because whoever it is aint even going to get a chance to get on my nerves as long as I've been waiting on this show

@introgoddess - girl IDK, we never really lost touched... I mean I was pissed for a couple weeks after so we didn't speak but then I decided we could still be friends so we still talk maybe like once a week or so but just as friends. Last week was the first time it crossed the line. I thought it was just a fling but after our convo the other night I have no idea how things are going to turn out.

@beautifully conjured - if I dont pick someone you are my date

@k. - what single straight men do you think are going to be at a concert like this... uuumm none, and I'm not planning on going to any afterparties

@diamonds - will definitely post pics and hopefully video too

Jackie E. October 7, 2008 at 2:22 AM

i really think you should go with a homegirl so you can just kick back and enjoy the show without having to worry or wonder about anything else!

Traycee October 7, 2008 at 2:36 AM

You have tickets too...I cant wait !!!

The Flyyest October 7, 2008 at 2:54 AM

Maxwell AND jazmine sullivan...dang!!!! Seattle sucks...well we had talib kweli and david banner last night....which I didn't care to go......anyway,

I totally agree with your last paragraph....whoever u yake BETTER take u to go eat first...... but I think u should take a homeboy or homegurl! Concerts aren't really date like! (Well to me it aint)

I'm sure u will be telling us who will be the chosen one! Lol

MzInspiredMind81 October 7, 2008 at 3:51 AM

Don't worry Eb, I'll fly to NY and we'll just go together! LOL! How jealous I am of you!!! Have fun hun!

eclectik October 7, 2008 at 4:07 AM

Well damn
You are certainly not at a loss of options or men...had you all wrong.

hmmm

Have fun at the show.

Eb the Celeb October 7, 2008 at 7:34 AM

@E - yes I am at a loss for options that why I had to post about... well good options anyway... you need to drive up from DC and go with me... wait I forgot... you dont do concerts!

Skinny Black Girl October 7, 2008 at 8:45 AM

Screw all that, send me a plane ticket and I'll go with you. Help me bring in 25 right! Lol.

Lina October 7, 2008 at 8:53 AM

I'd say take a friend that would really appreciate the experience. And next time, just buy one ticket.

Oh, or you could always sell that ticket...

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs October 7, 2008 at 9:02 AM

Hey Sistah!

Seemed like a "but" with most of the options except when you mentioned one of your homegirls or a blog winner.....I thought having a contest was a creative idea...and I agree...you deserve a good meal either way you go!

Whatever you decide to do....I hope you have a grand time and a delicious meal!

Eb the Celeb October 7, 2008 at 9:12 AM

@lina - girl I didn't buy these tix.. I cant even remember the last time I paid for concert tix... I have too many record label friends

Mizrepresent October 7, 2008 at 9:23 AM

I say take one of your girls, or do the contest. I think i'm gonna have the same problem...i've got tickets to the concert here and i'm having the same problem about who to take...hmmm, might just end up hanging with my sister!

Super Dave Van Buren October 7, 2008 at 9:29 AM

I'm made maxwell is doing shows but can't release a damn album. I saw take Thuggin Boo, at least you'll have fun.

Monique October 7, 2008 at 9:35 AM

Take one of your homegirls. It's too couple-ish with a dude. With your girl, it's just a good time

Ms. Jones October 7, 2008 at 9:56 AM

So clearly I'm in the minority with this one because I say give Thuggin Boo a chance...dinner and a concert will give you two a chance to kick it and have a good time so that you can finally move past the "we need to go out" conversation. You and your girls can go out anytime...give a Jersey boy a chance!!! You even said you know you'll have a good time with him so what are you waiting for??? lol

iCandy21 October 7, 2008 at 9:57 AM

i say take a homegirl! that's the best way to go when your torn bw who to take

E2Deep October 7, 2008 at 9:57 AM

I think you should take ME:) If not, take your home girl.

princessdominique October 7, 2008 at 10:41 AM

Girl I thought you had gone private on me. I say whoever you take have fun. I think a NYC contest would be fun.

Urban Thought October 7, 2008 at 10:49 AM

I'd say take me but I'm working that day.

You should hold a contest...

Queen of My Castle October 7, 2008 at 10:49 AM

I'm envious of whomever you choose to take. They are coming here Nov. 6 and I soooooo want to go.

Have fun!!!

ShellyShell October 7, 2008 at 11:12 AM

I say take one of the NYC bloggers....ME!! LOL! Anyway take someone you're going to have fun with...no stress and just a good time!

poison.ivy October 7, 2008 at 11:29 AM

wishin i was in ny rite now...you wouldnt have to ask me twice...maxwell AND jasmine sullivan!!!! hell yeah

have fun babes

pink October 7, 2008 at 11:33 AM

well...i see your dilemma. I think that you should take semipro (which by the way...i named my newbie semipro and then Dave informed me that you had a boo named semipro too...just wanted you to know i was jockin on purpose lmao) bc just from your description of all the dudes it seems like you like him the most. if you said that yall had a "heart to heart" maybe he is trying to open up to you and he may like somethin mushy like that lol.

I say not to take a GF bc then Maxwell will have you all in the romantical mood and you aint gon have no body to bun up wit. you gon look over and ur gurl gon have the same long lonely face as you lol!

This is a boo activity fa sho!

The F$%K it List October 7, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Take one of your girls, it would be the best fun. And make sure they take you someplace nice for dinner.

Lady Cameleon October 7, 2008 at 12:00 PM

This is how much i love your blog.....yesterday when it said "rbw's blog is by invite only"....i got a lil sad thinking you blocked me or something ;(......i got back today and was so juiced you were jus havin tech problems...lol....sorry for being selfish,lol....Anywho girl on my blog today i was going to mention how im in the same delimma for a concert called "House of Soul" we have out here in the BAY....I dont know who to take....i was goin to take moms cause its her bday day...but i really wanna take a man...period....so i dunno i guess i'll figure it out...Thanks for puttin me on the blogroll though "Bigtimer"... :)

RealHustla October 7, 2008 at 12:14 PM

Blogger contest. It's the only way to go. Absolutely no ambiguity.

Ms. Lovely October 7, 2008 at 12:14 PM

That pic is killin me softly! LOL

I would prob take one of my girlfriends cause when "Bust Your Windows" come on we can have a good ole time instead of have a dude giving me the side eye. And Maxwell..pfft! My panties might have to come off LOL. So yea, go with a girl..can't wait to see pics!

kayellejaye October 7, 2008 at 12:16 PM

Girl, stop fakin and ask semipro. You know you want to! At least casually mention it and see if he takes the bait.

Veronica Wright October 7, 2008 at 12:29 PM

When in doubt, leave the men out! Take a homegirl and y'all sip some wine and enjoy yourselves!

Sexxy Luv October 7, 2008 at 1:05 PM

I think you should take Semipro!!!! this is the next step after the heart to heart...no talking just enjoying the live good music and the company of one another.

plus how he takes it doesn't matter you have the control at the end of the day....i think! lol

Mel October 7, 2008 at 1:12 PM

I say take a blogger.

And I like the new layout lady :)

Soulstress October 7, 2008 at 1:14 PM

If I lived in the City I'd say take a blogger..cuz i luuuuvs me sum maxwell & i'd wanna go lol...


since I dont...grls nite out.

is that kinda grimy hahhaa...whoever u take thats gonna be a great show! I saw Jaz not too long ago & she did her thang thang.

Eb the Celeb October 7, 2008 at 1:27 PM

@Super Dave & Ms. Jones - I am leaning more towards Thuggin Boo... but shhhhhhh

@princess dominique - nope.. was just having technical difficulties

@shellyshell - fo real... stay close to ya phone day of... because everyone might get on my nerves by then... you know how I do... and I will definitely be calling you

@pink - girl I just ran to your profile to see your location... whew... you in DC... shoot men are scarce these days it could have been the same dude...lol

@lady c - I feel ya...I really wanna take a man too... dang... this is the type of concert you take a boo too... I dont wanna take a damn homegirl... I dont even half like them broads right about now...lol

@ms. lovely - very true... cuz you know that's my joint and I'm gonna be singing that at the top of my lungs when that beat drops...lol

@kayellejaye - ha... how you know what I wanna do...lol... maybe a lil

@mel- it wasn't on purpose... my old layout was straight jacked... I do kind like this one better... it goes with the whole living it up in nyc theme... plus the comment section is at the bottom of the post so people wont get confused anymore about where to comment

@soultress- yeah I'm looking forward to seeing jazzy... and well maxwell... hmmmm

pink October 7, 2008 at 1:34 PM

wait i just reread my comment and i meant that i WASNT jockin on purpose lol...sorry

yummy411 October 7, 2008 at 1:36 PM

nice new layout!!! you got a dilemma on your hands! have fun!

Ms. Behaving October 7, 2008 at 2:16 PM

I say take a friend/make it a girls night out. Hey...If nothing else, it'll be an easier decision. :-)

Hope you have fun at the concert!

Oh and if you get close enough, tell Maxwell I said HOLLA @ me!

LOL

Just Jasmine October 7, 2008 at 2:20 PM

HMM.. that is quite the predictament.

Taking A girlfriend is always a great fallback but....If i had tickets to see a maxwell concert i would definitely want it to be a romantic evening (hearing this woman's work in my head already..almost lost my virginity to that song) so I say go with thuggin boo.

I would go with the contest cuz i damn sure want to go but umm (see above)

Kryssy October 7, 2008 at 2:57 PM

I agree with Jasmine... night out with the girls is always fun, but in that type of setting, I always find myself looking around enviously at the couples cuddled up.

I saw put their names in a hat, and draw a name. LOL

Zanade October 7, 2008 at 3:34 PM

I say sell it!!!!!! Times are HARD LOL

:-)

Zanade

Judy D. October 7, 2008 at 4:24 PM

i can only afford micky d's price range

lol

mucho fun

hope u find someone 2 go with

hey, there is always the option of selling the ticket

12kyle October 7, 2008 at 6:35 PM

Take Semipro! I think you like him more than you'll admit

Melody.Darlene October 7, 2008 at 7:06 PM

take one of ur girls so u can MEET a guy there! but at the same time... Maxwell is that date music! hahahah! so iunno!

cherry's kid October 7, 2008 at 10:24 PM

I got the invite but I'm going to be in Mexico that weekend...promise I will take plenty of pictures but right now my vote is with Thuggin!!!! He need some lovin too...okay no more riddle me this riddle me that...LOL

B October 8, 2008 at 8:35 AM

Maxwell, oh hell nah!! I would love to see him in concert. You better take Semipro, chile...

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T October 8, 2008 at 11:14 AM

go by your5self and SALE the other tix. I got two to the show in the atl and selling them both

K. October 8, 2008 at 2:13 PM

"what single straight men do you think are going to be at a concert like this"

that's why i added "or while you're out and about pre/post concert." i just hate to see you keep wasting any of your time w/ the dudes you been writing about. doing the same thing over and over again = insanity, as my stepdad likes to say.

Sha Boogie October 8, 2008 at 2:39 PM

Do a contest! That sounds fun..

T.C. October 8, 2008 at 2:43 PM

either sale it OR take a homegirl as a bday/holiday or someone you know NEEDS to go out...

Pajnstl October 8, 2008 at 3:03 PM

I'm good company. Take me:)

YoungBlackBeauty October 8, 2008 at 3:07 PM

If I were in NYC I would so want to go with you!

dejanae October 8, 2008 at 3:56 PM

give me the other damn ticket

Eb the Celeb October 8, 2008 at 4:06 PM

@12kyle - what liking him got to do wit it

@cherry's kid - I'll take mexico anyday over a concert...

@k - nah, it wouldn't be a waste of my time... either way I'm gonna have fun... but definitely would have more fun with a dude than one of my homegirls... who lately all been getting on my damn nerves anyway...At this point its going to be Thuggin Boo or Semipro... I'm still torn as to who it will be but I gotta make a decision by tonight so I can let them know...ugh

@dejanae - daaanngg... are you threatening me...lol

Ms.Honey October 8, 2008 at 5:19 PM

When I saw that pic I was like oh lord is that someone she went on a date with WOW LOL

Hmmm that's hard man....I'd say take someone and just lay the ground rules out

Sha Sha October 8, 2008 at 9:49 PM

Lucky you, what a treat to see J.S in concert. I would go for the homegirl you can always bank on them.

Guys are too fickle, there is always a possibility of them screwing you over if you two aren't serious.

Anywho have a great time!

She W0rd Hustlez October 8, 2008 at 11:14 PM

Wow, I'm mad you have all these choices, loll. Man I don't even know. The contest sounds good though, but that would only make me mad again since I don’t live in NYC.

Rich October 9, 2008 at 10:41 AM

I'm late, but I say take Semipro, this could be the BEGINNING of something beautiful. He did just give in to the heart to heart.
