FRIENDING POLICY: I'm friends only now because my f-list was getting too big and it's been hard to keep up lately. Plus, the nature of my job now is making me a little paranoid. Still, if you friend me, more than likely I'll friend you back as long as your LJ hasn't been up for a while but there's only a couple of posts. And make sure we have a few things in common otherwise it's going to be kinda boring for the both of us. If I do defriend you, it's nothing personal. It usually happens if we don't talk or we no longer have anything in common. I won't be upset if you defriend me. Que sera and all that.
These icons and pics will tell you a lot about me:
You should probably know that I'm over 35. (Lord, where did the time go?) If you’ve been perusing my LJ, I know you are shocked and amazed right now. I don’t look it and I don’t act like it unless I have to like if I’m at work or it’s some other serious occasions. I fully embrace my inner child or teenager when the occasion calls for it.
Which means I fangirl not like I used to do thought. RL keeps me busy. 90210 was my first fangirl experience back when I didn’t even know what I fangirl was. I don't have a current main fandom. I dabble in a bunch, past and present. [My first involvement with fandom was Smallville. Got out just in time.]
I love my husband. A lot. I really mean a lot so there will be talk of the lovey dovey kind on occasion. I believe in true love and first love and all that jazz.
I love my babies A LOT!! I'm biased but I'll say it anyway: I HAVE THE CUTEST, SWEETEST, BESTEST BABIES EVER!
I love my dog, too. She is our furry child. We used to have a Pit Bull Mix. (He passed away.) So I’m a Lover of American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and American Pit Bull Terriers. BSL is exactly that: BS. If you can't handle that then this isn't the place for you.
I told you about things I like/love. These are things I don't like: LIARS. THIEVES. IGNORANCE. STUPIDITY. BAD TV (Unless it’s so bad it’s good.) DISCRIMINATION. PEOPLE THAT ARE MEAN TO MY FRIENDS. TAKING YOURSELF OR LIFE TOO SERIOUSLY. (I have fun here [most of the time]. I hope you do, too.)
What else should you know? I’m a Sorority girl. I’m a Liberal. And I will cut you if you say it’s a dirty word. (Kidding. Maybe not.) Philly born, Jersey bred. Black and proud. [Shocking, right? I’ve been called the ‘Whitest black girl.’ Trufax.] Traveler. Cook. [Sweet tea is my crack!] I curse. [A bad habit that I have yet to shake. Though sometimes all you can say is ‘Fuck!’]
Besides my husband and my dogs, I love tattoos. I have two. I want more. I love watching TV and reading when I have the time. Some of my favorite authors are Zane, Lisa Scottoline, Meera Syal, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Terry McMillian, Shakespeare, James McBride,Octavia Butler, Ta-nehisi Coates and Danyel Smith.
I can't live without music. I like something from pretty much every genre. [Favorites (not an exhaustive list) – Laura Izibor, John Legend, Maxwell, Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Robin Thicke, Jill Scott, Floetry, Janet Jackson, Everclear, Aerosmith, Tony Toni Tone, Beastie Boys, Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Annie Lennox, Madonna, pretty much any group from the Motown era, Amy Winehouse, Cee-lo Green, Justin Timberlake, Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Maroon Five, Finger Eleven, Goapele, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Gnarls Barkley, The Roots, Kenna, Boyz II Men, Outkast, Adele, Duffy, Estelle, Kings of Leon, People in Planes, Joshua Radin, Ray LaMontague, Valerie June, Ibeyi, Aloe Blac]
I ship therefore I am. Fake. Real life. It don't matter. (These are just my het ones except for the last 2.) [TV/Movies – Michael/Sara (Prison Break), Lincoln/Jane (Prison Break), Matt/Julie (Friday Night Lights), Tim/Tyra (Friday Night Lights), Smash/Waverly (Friday Night Lights), Eric/Tami (Friday Night Lights), Jim/Pam (The Office BBC & US), Peter/Simone (Heroes), Jake/Heather (Jericho), Stanley/Mimi (Jericho), Dean/Cassie (Supernatural), Derek/Sarah (T:TSCC), Jamal/Latika (Slumdog Millionaire), John/Jane (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), Edward/Sally (The Watchmen), Raylan/Rachel (Justified), Clint/Natasha (Avengers) --- Real Life Couples – Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie, Will Smith/Jada Pinkett Smith, Boris Kodjoe/Nicole Ari Parker, Duane Martin/Tisha Campbell Martin, Faith Hill/Tim McGraw, Paul Newman (R.I.P.)/Joanne Woodard, Ruby Dee/Ossie Davis (R.I.P.) --- In My Head - Wentworth Miller/Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), Michael McDonald/Mo Collins (Mad TV), Dominic Purcell/Kristin Lehman (Prison Break), Taylor Kitsch/Adrianne Palicki (FNL), Kyle Chandler/Connie Britton (FNL), Hugh Jackman/Hally Berry (Swordfish, X-Men) And last but not least Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) and Michael Fassbender/James MacAvoy (X-Men: First Class) because how can you not?]
