Music: vernacular of the soul

*moment of silence for my fam down in Haiti*
i cant even say anything on that right now
ill get to it later

finally uploaded the rest of the pics

so it was the best bud's bday on saturday and she wanted to go to this Michael Jackson tribute party crap

*insert side eye here*
(She's the bigest friggin MJ fan in case u couldn't tell)

it's the heifa's day
what could i do?
All of us except for Gritty met up at her house then
we headed out to TGIFriday's to catch a bite
I forgot to take a pic of the food but best be sure i tore that shit up

Then we headed off to the damn trainstation headed towards the city for said Michael Jackson Tribute Party (Of course Barry Gordy mysteriously canceled. Yall know that shit was a ploy to get folk to come)

We met up with Gritty at Columbus Circle and walked our merry asses to the spot
First off i was tight that i had to pay 30 dollars to get in
but again
what the hell was i gon do?
I handed that guap over all the while watching my life savings slip away

Andrani got her book signed by Aphrodite Jones

author of All She Wanted which was later adapted into the film Boys Don't Cry

If u havent seen it, check it out

(i remember watching that in the Rainbow Club for the first time in highschool. Did i tell yall that i was in a GSLBT club? It was entertaining to say the least. Ill recount the stories someday)

Horrible karaoke was to follow
at which point i was contemplating running into oncoming traffic
until this bootleg Jack Black look-alike came to save the day

i Seriously underestimated that white boy
he could blow
had a chick contemplating throwing some undies on stage

Did you know that Floetry wrote Butterflies for Michael Jackson?

There was also a fake Michael Jackson impersonator
Oh man
i wish i'd taken a pic
he looked a tore up mess
and this boy had the nerve to not be able to dance

but the whole time the busted impersonator was performing on stage (replete with 5 minute costume changes that had me rolling my damn eyes and gritting my teeth)
Gritty was putting it down on the dance floor

Yall remember that 30 dollar entrance fee?
tell me why these bastards had the nerve to have food laid out but u had to pay for drinks?
these sonsofbitches
3 dollar bottle of water my ass

We left there some hours later and headed to the fountain where we proceeded to take off our shoes and frolic in the water like the fools we were

All in all it was a fun night
coulda been better
but sometimes the crappiest times definitely can make for the the most entertaining

ps: yall do realize that there was no way in hell i was gon do all this shit then answer all yall questions too right?
ull know bout it when i postem
that will be all

Good stuff. Aside from the entrance fee, and that Thriller jacket is crazy. I gotta get one.

No matter how you try to make it sound, I think you actually had fun, LOL.

However, like I commented at those other pics, I'm still very confused.

Rashan Jamal said...

I seem to remember someone saying if they didnt post the pictures AND the questions, we could kick her in the head? You ready???

Looks like a good time. I could see myself having lots of fun there talking about people. LOL

Roddykat said...

Don't know what up with the fam, hon, but, my thoughts are with you & them. That said...

You don't seem depressed to me. You better not be.

Glad you had fun despite the grip you had to cough up. Sounds like HIGHlarity. Hey, you and Fi kinda favor. It's in the eyes. Maybe I missed something.

What the....???? a SMILE! Alright, bring on the LHC. I can now go saying that I've seen it all!

And I'm so glad I got my kick in days ago.

Maria said...

Don't wanna sound all stalkerific, but I saw your homegirl on the corner of my block and wanted to be all, "Hey girl! You don't know me but I've seen pics of you on the 'net!"


For obvious reasons, I just kept on walking. LOL

Big O said...

Pajnstl said...

glad you cleared it up with the "jackson theme party" I certainly was wondering WHY he was wearing the thriller-esque jacket lol

You look cute.

Prayers for the fam :)

CALL 911!!! I think I am having a stroke or a heart attack or hallucinations or something! I could have sworn I saw SEVERAL smiles from the person who(shall remain nameless and authors this blog) said we would never see such pictures!!!

Stew said...

i have come to the conclusion that your eyes are stuck in the corner of your head and you have to bring them to the front of your face. (the same way normal people have to TRY and look to the side)

you are very pretty though. and you finally smiled

B-More BAP said...
