I hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day weekend!
I didn't grill on Friday. I cooked in the house and I must say that my potato salad, spinach, grilled not beef burgers and not chicken buffalo wings were slamming. What I'm not feeling is Tofurky. I've been eating "not meat" for the past 2 months and it's been simply hard, which is part of the reason why me and boyfriend didn't venture to any cookouts. Right about now I'm tempted to eat some ribs and burgers and it's safe to stay home. Most of the "not meat" is good though. Morningstar does their thing with Chik patties, Grilling burgers, Corndogs and Sausage patties. However the Tofurky hot dogs went straight to the garbage. It's supposed to be soy hot dogs but for me it tastes indescribable and before I ate it just to not waste food, I dumped them.
If anyone knows me, I mean really knows me, they know I love the Twilight Zone. The SciFi channel runs marathons every New Year's Eve and New Year's Day and every July 4th Eve and July 4th Day. I've seen just about every episode and I rewatch them over and over again. The black and white, older episodes ONLY! None of those studio taped episodes and definitely not the modern ones!
Gotta Get a Bigger Bootie
I told myself that this would be the year that I finally booked a trip to the Essence Music Fest, especially with performances by Mint Condition, Ledisi, Mary J. and many others. However I didn't make plans for it :(.
One of my on-the-job husbands went down and I'm pretty sure his venture had nothing to do with the performances. Before he left, he made it his business to see me. I was a little annoyed by him going because I'm a jealous on-the-job wife but by the end of the visit I was in a better mood. He told me that he'll be thinking of me the entire time.
Not too long ago, I got a phone call from him. He's in good spirits. He's laughing and joking. And then he tells me, "Yo K, you have nothing on these women down here". (For a second, I thought he was complimenting me) Then he says, "They have gigantic, Serengeti booties. I don't know what we're going to do but you got to get your bootie up to their level". I said, "Thanks J. I see you've been thinking of me, just like you promised. See you tomorrow at work", and then I hung up. I'm so glad that our relationship is simply fictitious.... I'm looking back at my bootie right now....
