Juicy Couture - Tiered Party Dress $498
Mily Floral Dress- $450
Diane von Frustenburg - Velvet Goddet Dress - $525
I couldn't afford ANY of these dresses with two jobs and all my credit cards combined! Let me stop lying. When I need a dress for an occasion you can find my ass sale rack shopping in Dress Barn with a $60 dollar "budget" especially if I only plan to wear it once. Then you'll find me at Famous Footwear finding shoes to match with a $30 budget! But window shopping is FUN! I need some shoes.
Christian Louboutin - very Prive Satin Platform Pump $770.00 (I've heard from my "friend in my head" Oprah that those shoes feel like butta on your feet!
Oh, no!!! My virtual window shopping budget was $1,000. I guess Neiman Marcus isn't the place for me. I'm over budget which means no hair and no mani!!! So I'm going to Dress Barn, so their website doesn't have pics!! Which means they are cutting costs and passing the savings to me! The model on their homepage has a very obvious weave/wig thing going on.
I really need to go to bed! I had a very long day meeting my "un-in-laws". They were his father's side of the family. Everyone was really nice food was great. I'm just sooo anti-social when I first meet people especailly in "family" situations. I'm weird. It's also akward because I'm not working right now and I have to explian that to like 20 different people.
"So what do you do" "Um-er... I'm not working right now, I'm going to school". Thank god I don't look my age so can kinda get away with saying that. I mean there's nothing wrong with not working, everybody is getting layed off. I just feel weird. I wanna say "oh, me, I don't do sh!t, I sleep late, eat, nap, study for hours, eat, study, fill out 50 job applications a day & go to bed late, and I get a tiny little check from the state of CT everyweek and I live in my momma's house!"
When you say that you've been layed off people give you the look, the your a statistic of this shitty economy glad it's not me (yet) look...... Or the why don't you apply at Wal-Mart or McDonalds they are always hiring look. No one gave me those looks at the dinner thing, but it's just something I've noticed. Besides if things get really bad for me I'll apply at Target, it's more me. I'm there all the time anyways might as well get a discount. I'm done rambling.... For tonight.......

So I'm eating leftover Hamburger Helper! :) Funny part was is that I made it wrong! Cooking just isn't my thing. Well I made it right but I made the topping part wrong. I used water instead of milk. I was also making it at like 1:30am, after Rob and I got back from the ER. I may of had a little buzz.... Only him and I will come home from the ER at 1:00am and drink and continue to cook. He didn't want to WASTE the chicken!!!! He had an accident involving half frozen chicken and a sharp knife.
M, is here now :( him and Rob went fishing today funny how they never come back with any FISH. I think they go fishing for Bud Light & Sam Adams. M & I don't really get along. He's a bigot (and has admitted to it). Mind you he's BROWN SKINNED! How you gonna be racist and have BROWN skin? He's such a dumbass. I think they just keep him around b/c they've known him since they were 13 and he just wont go away. He's rude, arrogant & gross. He swears he's the smartest person in the world, yet he dropped out of high school when he was 16. He looks like a roach! He's bossy, he acts like he owns everything he touches. I could go on but I'd be wasting my breath and he's not worth it.
I'm supposed to be working on a paper for my Internet Marketing class, but I started it and it's "tricky" so I'm finding other ways to waste my time. It's Friday, is it time for Happy Hour yet?
I wanted to watch this season of the Real Housewives of ATL , but I never knew when it was on. But today my mom and I caught most of the marathon. It's almost 1am and I'm still watching. My favorite was watching Kim "sing", that was bad, it hurt my TV. She also always has a Newport 100 and a glass of wine in her hand.
I'm going to be up all damn night watching the rest of this, well maybe if it stays on till 4am, I can go shopping at KOHLS and get some deals. I've never done the whole "Black Friday Shopping Thing.

So a lot of people ask me what do you wash your hair with. Well I have a new "fav". It's an oldie but it's a great shampoo & conditioner and it's actually affordable! (I have expensive taste).
Cream of Nature, y'all the shampoo & conditioner. You will probably invest about less than $10 for both. I personally get mine at Wal-Mart. They also sell it at Sally Beauty and I'm thinking about investing in the professional size. I leave the conditioner on for about 5-6 mins. then comb through with my wide tooth comb and rinse. Cream of Nature in my opinion works just as good as the "salon quality" stuff and it definately is affordable. Oh you'll find this product in the "ethinc" hair care asile. Where I live it's that tiny section with very little selection. I'm surprised I found this stuff.
I really think my therapist was right when she said I have ADD like 5 years ago, they put me on something for it and I got sooo much done but whatever med it was made me super bitchy when it ran out around 6pm. I'd get really angry and psyco. So I flushed it.... If I stashed it I would of kept taking them. Shouldn't of flushed them I told my friend I did and she informed me of the street value of "attention pills" (Yes I know selling drugs is bad). It just takes me so long to do one thing. I can't sit still, can't focus. I've been trying to drink tea it's supposed to be calming but I always forget to make it and I'm weird ab out hot drinks, I'd rather be drinking Crystal Light.
So it's about 9pm now. Hopefully I'll be able to work on this paper until at least 11pm. I did want to go to Target tonight, I don't need or want anything. I'm just bored with all this unemployment isolation.
Oh project crochet is coming along well. I can only do the chain stitch thing but and it's a mile long, I need to figure out how to actually make something. I'll take a pic of it later. It's like this long pink snake. It's hott.

I have nothing against "little people" but I REALLY can't stand that show on TLC "Little People, Big World".. I think I don't like the parents, they seem to "know it all-ish". I saw Twilight today, but I'll write about my opinions on the movie when I'm in a better mood. It was really good though. I think I'm bored, overall.... I do the same thing everyday, sleep-in, bloob around, eat, study, eat, nap, study, bed. As sick as I am of really not doing much but studying I'm still far, behind in both of my classes. I'm still not out of the danger zone but I'm in a better position. I also never got around to finishing my incomplete from last semester, I need to get on that with the quickness because I cannot take Intro to Ethics again. So I think venting actually helped a bit. So here are my plans for tonight (in no particular order)
- Find out when my INC is due
- Look up registration deadlines for next semester
- Start at least one of my pending/over due assignments
- Work on my crocheting, so far I've made a chain and that's all I can do
- Be in a better mood

So now that I'm not commuting a zillion miles to my temp job anymore, I can listen in to the Wendy Williams Show on WBLS (107.5) I noticed something.... Charlamagne is GONE.... I don't know if I buy this story, but at least it's an answer...
"Ms. Williams said…the firings had been the decision of WBLS, which is cutting costs. (Me: To pay for the settlement of the sexual harassment lawsuit against the station, Wendy Williams and her husband, Kevin Hunter). Check out an earlier post on the matter.) In an e-mail message on Friday, Ms. Williams said she first learned of Charlamagne’s firing on Monday, adding, “I was disappointed in their decision not to have him on the show but I’m not worried about his ability to go on and do very well for himself — he’s a true friend and continues to be an important member of the team and will be on my TV show this summer.” (Me: Oh, great. NOT!) (source)
CHARLAMAGNE FIRED FROM WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW TALKS ABOUT NEW RADIO GIG
Wendy Williams' co-host Charlamagne Da God was fired from his hosting gig with the radio talk show queen. Charlamagne revealed to Allhiphop.com that he still has a future in radio and is about to go back to work next week.
Budget cuts at WBLS were cited as the reason for the staff firings which included talent booker Nicole Spence who had filed a sexual harrassment lawsuit against Wendy Williams which involved Wendy's husband Kevin Hunter. Is the staff cut excuse just an easy way for Nicole Spence to be cut from the payroll?
Charlamagne was not the only one to receive a pink slip. New York's Daily News has confirmed that most of Wendy's production staff was let go as well causing the rumor mill to speculate that this is WBLS' way of forcing Wendy to resign. SOHH gossip blogger Gyant claims that if Williams leaves, the station won't have to pony up her hefty severance package.
In the midst of the shaky situation at WBLS, back in June, Williams' talent booker and publicist, Nicole Spence, filed a $5 million sexual harassment lawsuit against the shock jock's husband, Kevin Hunter, Williams and the station's parent company, Inner City Broadcast Corp.
Spence accused Hunter of sexually propositioning her and later threatening her when she turned down his advances. She also claimed Hunter created a hostile work environment by physically attacking Williams at the office and she blames the station for not only giving Hunter authority - even though he did not work on the show - but for not responding to her multiple complaints about the situation.
Both Williams and Hunter have vehemently denied the allegations. source
Charlamagne says he will continue his work relationship with Wendy Williams on other projects. Listen to Charlamagne diss hip hop artists like Chingy and Yung Berg while explaining how radio is programmed to make everyone like bad music. Did anyone think these controversial comments would have gotten Charlamagne fired?
Less than 48 hours since his abrupt dismissal from WBLS’s The Wendy Williams Experience, Charlamagne Tha God is preparing for his return to South Carolina radio, he revealed to AllHipHop.com exclusively today (November 8).
Charlamagne, who hosted his own show for six years on Columbia, South Carolina's Hot 103.9 (WHXT-FM), will be back on airwaves in Columbia as early as next week.
“I will be doing a specialty show with WXBT 100.1 'The Beat' in Columbia,” he told AllHipHop.com. "I can do that from up here and it will broadcast down there. Radio is like training, [you] have to stay on that bike to keep the conditioning up for when that big fight comes. I didn't have a non-compete clause, so I am able to work immediately in New York. I'm just weighing out my options right now.”Charlamagne joined The Wendy Williams Experience in March 2006, adding more spice to the controversial syndicated afternoon talk show.
He was terminated from his position as Wendy Williams’ co-host just minutes after the broadcast on Monday (November 3).
Citing budgetary constraints as the reason, WBLS also terminated the show’s executive producer Tarin Donatien, talent booker and publicist Nicole Spence and production director Trev Hollywood.But the relationship between the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” and her protégé remains strong. In an on-air statement to fans on Thursday about his departure, Wendy expressed her support and assured fans that he would be okay.“He’s gone, he’s not forgotten,” she said. “He is still part of la familia. That is still my boy. He still sleeps in the purple room when he comes to the house. We still drink our Patron on Friday nights.”
So finally Twisted Tea came out with Twisted Tea Light!!! So here's my review..
I give it 3 of 5 stars. It kinda has a diet-ish aftertaste. I drink diet soda and diet everything so it takes a lot of "after-taste" for me to notice. Instead of 5% alcohol it has 4% (boo!) Why did you take away my 1% Twisted Tea People?? WHY??? Seriously, I need that 1% back. So, I'll finish off the six-pack that I purchased but going forward I will probably stick to the regular Twisted Teas.....
I'm really tempted to crawl back into bed before starting my school work for the day. My mind will perform better if I nap first. I'm still sick so that's why I need the extra rest......
I have an addiction.... I'm addicted to PRODUCTS!!!! Target, Amazon.com, & Wal-Mart are very dangerous places...... I actually took some photos of my madness. I have curly hair products, straight hair products, wavy products. Lotions, Body Sprays, it’s insane.I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I have over 32 MAC eye shadows, and a million other eye shadows, I have a weakness for eye shadows. I’ll get into my favs later…. My night-time cold medicine is kicking in……

I'm itching to get my hair done AGAIN!! It's not even really time yet, well it has been 5 weeks.....
I'm not good at maintaining this long wavy hair that I'm rocking now... I feel like it looks lifeless and flat, it's not poppin' like I thought it would. Maybe I'll flat iron tonight. I'm waiting for my damn new product to come in the mail, it's called Edges. It better be worth the wait, I get soo cranky when my edeges start poking through, I just want to chop them off or shave them!!!
Ok, well I'm off to stalk the mailbox. (Why does the mail come so late!!) Then I'm going to attempt to be ADD-less and write one of my overdue papers! But I'll probably be lazy and take a nap, even though I just drank coffee....
