Subway escapades and books to boot…or read.

Welcome to another edition of…Three-random-thoughts-on-the-subway-Thursday’s!

  1. Oh my God! Is that Paul Giamatti! OMG I  love him!! Is it? Could it be?  Nah. This is Atlanta.
  2. Wait. Can these people hear that I’m listening to Maxwell? I don’t want them to see me/hear me listening to Maxwell. What will they think if they can hear my Maxwell?
  3. Oh Lord! This dude beside me didn’t assume the herky-jerky-train-stance! If this dude falls on me it’s gonna be a problem! Dangit!
For more subway fare (Get it?! Subway fare :D) visit here.  Photo’s by Kubrick.  Stanley Kubrick.  Once there check out the 2nd shot for an illustration of the herky-jerky-train-stance:  feet shoulder width apart with a slight lean forward, to anticipate sudden movements and prepare to brace

Sure the Feeble 5 can be on the train, but not Paul Giamatti. Maybe he's filming Sideways 2. Hope so!

And now for the book love!

Day/titles 108-110

At the request of my blog buddy Sel, here are some works by African authors. Lottery be darned! I run this!! 😀

Short read but oh so engaging!

Short stories. Every one of them worth the price of admission but 'Luxurious Hearses'...grabs you and transfixes you. You are there.

Oyeyemi knows how to tell a tale that will scare the pants off you.


Day 16 Crush: A tale of celebrity, soda pop and dreams

Your celebrity crush:

I’m a grown woman. What I look like with a celebrity crush? I should be able to opt outta this topic. I really need to inspect these things a little closer before I dive in. Ah well. I’m in navel deep so I may as well finish up the deed.

Lets get the PC part over with.

Well my husband is somewhat of a local celebrity so I’ll say that I’ve got a crush on my husband! That’s my final answer Chuck!

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.  As an adult I’ve had few celebrity crushes after I met one of my biggest teen crushes at a concert and he turned out to be a jerk.  Shout out to Q-tip from A Tribe Called Quest! You can add shattering a young girl’s fragile heart (and perception of celebrity superiority) to your list of accolades.  Take that on your award tour.

Anyway. I don’t crush on celebs because I assume they’re all egomaniacal disappointments.  But I’ll run down a list of celebs that I doted on before I knew the truth. This list is in chronological order:

Peach Crush soda (a candy lady must-have)
Tajh from The Boys
Big Daddy Kane
Black Thought from The Roots
Don Cheadle
Kelsey Grammar (don’t judge me)
