So I haven’t written an entry in about three weeks… In that time, I’ve bought my first home and moved into it, suffered thru the flu and a sinus infection, flown to Georgia to be in a wedding, rekindled an old romance and mastered the public transportation system on the south side of the city.
What I have not done is write any new jokes.
I’ve never gone more than 4 or 5 days without getting up and I feel like I’ve been away for years. So I gotta get back in the swing. The world is waitingâ€¦ kinda? OK, well maybe not, but even in all the excitement that’s going on, I feel like the biggest part of me is missing, so as of tonite, I am officially back on the scene. You’re welcome. See y’all soon.
I went to see Akeelah and the Bee this afternoon. What a great movie! Akeelah was a little girl from a single parent household in South Central LA who dreamed of winning the National Spelling Bee, and who do they get to be her spelling coach?… IKE TURNER! Who KNEW Ike had such an extensive vocabulary? Her mother, Anna Mae, was totally anti-spelling bee… but as usual, Ike was able to ‘change her mind.’ Tre, Doughboy and the other boyz n the hood helped Akeelah prepare for the bee and in the end Morris Chestnut gets shot… Oh wait… I mean, Akeelah is victorious. HOORAY!
If you were able to follow this entry, you should seek help. In short, any movie with Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett is a winner in my book. Go see this movie!
