5 Yummy Reasons…. Game night

Not many people know that CCs day job is at HBO. Thank God for the he and she that helped me say yes..If it all ended tomorrow I could hands down, say it is an unbelievable experience in this young crab’s life.
So what makes a Game of Thrones premier one of the best TV premiers?
CC learned today. Here we go….
5…Give Searcy and Tyrion the bEST lines: “and my youngest daugh-tah is about to marry a pillow bitah”
4…Throw in gore, filth, the dragons, a new side of Sansa and a golden glove. Watch on April 6!
3…Include a producer and actors in the audience with us and ask them crazy questions while they talk about their inspiration and passion for their job. They might be some of the happiest employees ever ? (with a Scottish(?) accent)
2…Watch a coworker pull a Heineken out of his jacket
1…Secretly wish for a pony too
💙CC
What are the crablings most looking forward to? Write back in after the premier 😉

5 Things…random thoughts for today

5…CC doesn’t appreciate when people use the Bible to justify selfish motives and hateful thoughts. It’s like someone drank a tall cup of judgment and just spit out some scripture. Not cool. But how do you say that to your friend?

bflies4…Was ~relax, relate, release ~ not the best advice ever?

3…Can we discuss this R. Kelly and those leather pants/leggings?

2. CC wonders if you have ever felt it is possible to not be alone soemtimes, but still feel lonely

..however..

➎ Reasons: Random…Hate 2 Love it

This is not a typical post. CC is not usually about this Vh1 life. I just tell my stories.

Everyone who knows me understands how much I loathe can do without most reality TV. I respect creative TV & movies too much. But from the minute I gave in and jumped in the LHHA pool I have been Team Shenelica.

I took my punishment from everyone. Says one reader: “What the hell has she accomplished in all of her 30+ years except steal somebody’s baby daddy, skrip and prostitute.?” But y’all know I can be bougetteaùx. Oh she has issues, but so does CC and its real. I’m not excusing her or me. I have been the fool sometimes 😔 But now you can relate too. Here’s why..

got a big ego

5 … She is hilarious… and usually right

4 … She makes huge mistakes.. but gets right back up

3 … For all jokes and insults people throw at her, she is one of the only true women on that show. (Rasheeda is also… but Rasheeda seems like the man, the masculine in the relationship, Kirk is the feminine. He doesnt seem like he has a say. Which is fine that’s who they are and why they will work once Mona’s script it ends.)…but…. Jo has been to hell and back. I think deep down she is really private and has been through things no one will ever know about. Trying to elevate, not needing fake friends, she’s just on her path. She been through way too much and has too much to lose.

2 … Take your risks. She doesn’t want to make it alone but she accepts if she has to. Treat your dreams with care. You might lose but it might lead to the very thing you would give your life for.

1 … No matter how much people hated she wouldn’t take her eyes off her prize…even if she fails at being the PR princess. And to boot, will call SJ on his mess in a good way- not easy and I don’t think that’s a camera trick. Part of me feels like he and Mimi just deserve each others miserable selves. But he has a power over her…If she truly loves him she needs him on top of their game otherwise how would he be happy?. Hope she leaves it there. Oh well. Not perfect. Not a role model. Just a woman.

➎ Things: What Not to Do, but we do it anyway

**Angel Note: CC is guilty of some, not all, of the following. Thank you. **

1 – Keep FB friendships with people we secretly roll eyes at. It’s not that you dislike them but either they need to seriously calm down, or can’t be deleted due to other friendship alliances. However, there are 3 currently that may get the exception boot anyway. And CC is one of the nice crabs. Sometimes.

Nemo learns a valuable lesson

2 – Eat mint chocolate chip ice cream/random junk food in the middle of the night
… I am thinking it neither satisfies hunger – or – the reason you ate it to begin with. Ok, one exception. Cheesecake.
3 – Wait to buy a new pack of toilet paper just before the current one runs out. CC, for no reason, gets incredibly excited at a good 12-pack on sale. It’s just small enough to fit in my linen closet, just big enough that I won’t have to buy some for awhile. Then I wait until the last minute. A cycle.
4 – Let yourself be Stifled. Grounded yes, Stifled, nope.
5 – Repeat your parent’s lives. Good or bad, they lived it already. Why can’t we sometimes seem to pick our own? Guilt?

That is all. For now.

➎ Random Thoughts for Today

  1. My french manicure has once again defected. It’s somewhere in Lithuania…
  2. That Mary J Burger King song is catchy. Dammit.
  3. Will Kanye and Kim try another sex tape? Can we call it “GoldTrigga”? I’ll do set design.
  4. Moms should not network socially…
  5. Martyrs suck. Don’t do something if all you want is credit.

Bonus: I really want an Auntie Anne’s pretzel right now.

That is all.

➎ Reasons: Honesty Is Lonely

CC has been thinking about this honesty thing alot lately. It’s such a loaded word. Such a tricky thing. Everyone says they want it. Most people think they are.

But does it leave you in a lonely place when you think about the costs? Whether it’s in a relationship, in your job, with yourself. You realize you have to give up something valuable to achieve it. And always be ready to walk alone no matter how much it kills you.

So here are CC’s top 5 reasons why honesty is lonely…

5… Honesty leads to judgement. And honestly, who wants that? I like to eat cake for breakfast, would totally go to a Taylor Swift concert, and desire useless things sometimes. So what.

4… Honesty can lead to disappointment of others, when you feel guilt for not living up to their expectations.

3… Honesty is rarely reciprocal…

2… Retaliation and isolation are strong possibilities.

1… Keeping up appearances is simpler.

But then… one day… if you’re lucky…you stop and know that:

Even though the loneliness was an expensive price to pay, you looked up and saw the one or two that stayed with you. Held you. Walked with you. Regardless of whether u believed it or not. Then you realize that’s all you ever needed anyway.

➎ Reasons…why Maya is my S.I.M.H.

3. Her hilarioussssssss ChristinaYonce version of the Star Spangled Banner. See it here.

2. She can laugh at herself. She’s imperfect. Me too.

1. “Maya was in the studio with her mother on the day Minnie  recorded “Lovin’ You. The listener can hear her mother sing “Maya, Maya, Maya” to her daughter near the end of the track. Riperton died on July 12, 1979, at age 31, from breast cancer, just shy of Rudolph’s seventh birthday.”

Black Cinema Shines: The Prep School Negro

June 9, 2011 – Lincoln Center –  ImageNation led another sold out film even at  the Walter Reade theatre last night. The  film was Prep School  Negro – a documentary about the director’s struggle in attending one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, having hailed from a lower income neighborhood in Philly.

Director Andre Robert Lee was on hand and introduced the film and led a panel discussion

Phenomenal, but CC will keep it short. Here are 5 gems to inspire Crablings to run to the theater when it’s released:

5. Andre: I need to axe you something

Classmate: If you axe me, then I will bleed.

4. Andre’s discussion with his father on love, abandonment, and pride

3. Kids of all ages describe how they try to “act black” at home yet “act not black” at school

2. Taking friends home when they live in mansions and you…don’t

1. Realizing you weren’t the only one to ever struggle with identity – black, white, or otherwise

Muy proud.

5 Reasons to read Jay-Z’s blog

Jay interviews Gwyn

5. Awww. Even Jay is blogging. ..reaching out of his comfort zone. Me likey.

4. The site has variety. Click pic for his interview with Gwynnie Paltrow.

3. This quote:

GP: “Do you feel that as a cultural figure of importance it is part of your responsibility to share what inspires you?”

JZ:“I think it’s every human’s job to inspire others, to feed one another’s senses. Inspiration begets inspiration times infinity. Imagine if the person that was inspired to create the phonograph didn’t share it with the world.”

2. Nice artwork Jay.

1. This tribute to Bey.. Maybe we’ll get some real insight into their love.
