Are you ready to Bee Funny!?


Last weekend as foretold I went to a bachelorette party. We went to Talbott Street bar (a fabulous gay bar) and watched a drag show.  I asked to get my pic taken with one.


I know I am short. I am somewhere inbetween 5'1-5'2.. but you never know how truly short you are until you are standing next to a beautiful drag queen

Pretty Flowers for my pretty hair

In a lot of the pictures of women with natural hair online, you will see them with gorgeous flowers in their hair. I thought about going to a craft store, purchasing some flowers and gluing them to a barrette, but I don't think the logistics of it would work. I was on curlynikki.com and there was a youtube vid of creating your own flowers for your hair:

I am crafty (somewhat, I do scrapbook pages and I am a beginner sewer) so I may try this when I am feeling motivated. But for right now I would just like to purchase a couple of flowers. Do you have any flower accessories? Where did you get them from?

Let us try this again!

The winner of the Moroccanoil Treatment is Libby Logic! Woooo!

Use the contact me tab to send me the information to ship it to you!

Thanks everyone for playing!

Take your mama out all night and show her what it’s all about…

I am in a Scissor Sisters type mood as I type this my natural lovelies. Tonight I am going to a bachelorette party. I guess we are going to a drag show. It has been forever since I  have been to one and I am totally looking forward to it. I looked up some different things to do with my TWA (teeny weeny afro) so that I could have something special. Some things would take me hours to master, and I should have probably before the day of the event. Oh well.

Something in the natural community has sparked my eye recently and I want to try it soon. It is called 'banding' It is kind of like stretching out your hair. I found a lovely tutorial of it on You Tube and I wanted to share it with you. Watch and learn.

Please make sure you watch it to the end and notice her incredible hair! Loving it! If I end up doing this, is this something you guys would want a video on? Let me know!

I am off to become beautiful! Ta Ta!

Are you ready to Bee Funny!?


So for me, Bee Funny today is not about pictures, it is about a story. Yesterday was the Pretty Indy Party . It was a chance for people to get out, meet other people, socialize and network. That is exactly what I did. Slipping a few of my business cards into my luggage  purse. I took a deep breath and started to get ready for the party.

Honestly? I used to be a big party animal. But who likes going to events alone? Not me. I really haven't made any friends since I have moved to Indianapolis. But I was going to this with the determination to network and maybe make a friend!

I had a blast. They everyone left with a free book by author Laina turner-Molaski called Stilletos and Soundrels.  It sounds like a really good read and I can't wait to crack into it. I am going to try and read it and finish up here fast because in a couple of weeks school starts back and I won't have much time for my enjoyment reading!

The best part of the night came from the girl sitting right beside me. She was in town from North Carolina. She had a wedding to attend, friends to visit and one of the pretty indys throwing the party was one of her dearest friends. I haven't laughed so hard at something in a long time. She taught me a new drink: Vodka Awesomes. She orders vodka and water. Boring right? THEN...she pours in half a pack of crystal light drink mix. She said she felt like my pusher giving me a pack to try myself *snicker*

The night went forth and her and I just got sillier and sillier.
Me: OMG
Her: What?
Me: Is that Paris Hilton outside!?
(both of us turn and look at an incredibly tall incredibly blond girl with what looked like a skimpy towel wrapped around her and clipped with a sparkly jewel.)
Her: OMG she looks like one step up from pretty woman hooker!
Me: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Later on

Her: Look! it's Snooki and J-wow!
(we turn and look at the bar where in fact Snooki and J-wow lookalikes were hitting on the same guy)
Me: I didn't know we were in Jersey.
Her: I LOVE THIS PARTY! There are so many lookalikes! I just want to fist pump and hug everyone!!!!
Me: *snicker*

Best Party Ever. Thank you Pretty Indy

Just a little funny

This was back before I went natural... Pardon language on this.. I was angry.

Worst job interview… IN THE WORLD

Before I get on with my sad tale of woe is me embarrassment of a job interview. I must tell you that this is all my fault. I applied for a position that is way over my level. This is what happens when you do that sometimes.

For those of you that do not know me well, I am in technology. Well, I would be in technology if I was not unemployed. I've filled out countless applications, sent in tons of resumes and the results? A few interviews here and there, talking to my dogs a lot, scrapbooking and blogging. 
I sent in my resume for a job I found on careerbuilder.com. It was above my level of expertise, but I always do that, thinking that the hiring manager will see my resume and think I am not qualified for the job, but they have something that may work for me. It has happened before.
Well, they called, wanting me to interview for this job. I was shocked, I was happy and I was nervous. It was a phone interview today. I WAS ON IT.
This woman asked me questions of technical things I had never even heard of. SAN? What the hell is a SAN? I know of LAN, WAN, and even MAN. But never SAN!  (FYI- LAN= Local Area Network, WAN= Wide Area Network, MAN= Metropolitan Area Netowrk, and SAN= Storage Area Network (I had to ask my husband who is more of an IT guru than I will ever be)
After a few more questions like that. I was just deflated. That interview took some stuff out of me. So I took a nap. Because that just sucked ass.
Now, I need a hug...and possibly some cake. But I will settle for a hug.

Tuesday Tuesday

My title is from when I worked at Old Navy back in the day. You pretty much get used to the music and block it out, but some songs made me clinch my teeth together. I don't know the name of this one.. but it started out with a man singing "Monday Monday" and some angel type chorus would come in. I would hate to hear that.. especially on a Monday.

Today I have a job interview! I am so excited. Blogging does not pay the bills y'know!

Pre-pooing…Revisited

I haven't had the winner of the contest contact me yet. I will give her until the end of this week, and then I will choose someone else. 


Want to get in the game? Go back a few entries and read about the contest!


Last week I left a brief post about “pre-pooing” or pre shampooing your hair. Before I went natural, I had never heard of such a phenomenon. I thought I would talk about it a little bit today.
Generally a pre-shampooing treatment is some sort of oil (like olive oil for example) used on the hair before shampooing or co-washing. It didn’t make sense to me at first because I thought “Why am I putting something in my hair that is immediately going to wash out?” Then I did a little research.
www.bvhairtalk.com put it best: It protects your hair from drying out during the shampooing process. If you think about it, what are you actually shampooing? You are shampooing your scalp, not your hair really. It’s protecting your hair from the harsh drying chemicals in shampoo. They also make the point that natural curly hair kind of works like a sponge.
Think about the sponge you get from the supermarket. Go home and try to clean stuff with it straight off the bat. It’s not going to work well is it? Why? Because, sponges have to be moistened; it is sort of the same with our hair. Conditioner will be absorbed more in the hair if you pre-poo.
Lately I have been pre-pooing using Moroccanoil’s Oil Treatment. I pre-poo my hair at night, and in the morning I take my shower and wash. Moroccanoil’s Treatment is thick, and a little bit does my whole head of hair. I wrap my hair up at night. I’ve been feeling a difference. My hair is softer and more manageable.
I do not pre-poo everyday. I don’t have time for it, sometimes I forget. But I do notice a difference when I do. So once again I ask you, do you pre-poo?
