Is This Thing On

Soliana's Christening  Soliana's Christening

I have no valid excuses for my absence. Well, except the lobotomy, but that's neither here nor there.  I don't have much to report, I've mostly been consumed with all things Ethiopian. I'd say I've been busy, but I think that busy is perhaps implying that the things I'm doing have some level of importance and really, they don't.

This morning, I got on the wrong bus and ended up having to take a nice, long walk to the nearest metro station. Ultimately, I had to laugh at myself because all the signs were pointing to the fact that I'd made a mistake, but I was so consumed in my own thoughts that i just failed to recognize the warning signs. Lesson learned.

Last night I watched Sarah Palin speak and kudos to her speech writers. Y'all do know these people don't write their own speeches right? She has a very "model" American sentiment about her that I think a lot of people might find endearing, but I still don't think she needs to be second in command to lead the free world. I'm sure someone could debate the whole truthiness of how I feel, but I'm not buying whatever it is the Republican party is selling right now.

Now, just so you know that I'm still gangsta and I keep it street – I want to make out with (and possibly let him hit a homerun if you know what I mean (and I think you do) – wink and nudge) Lil' Wayne.
