Random News/Ain’t Thoughts (Week of August 27th, 2010)

My apologies for not doing this for a couple of weeks (Not that you actually care.) but work has been killing of late. This week I’ll try to give you a post that is both newsy and equally random.

  1. Do hood rats as a species have the inherent need to drag their feet and walk slowly? Is it the house shoes? Is it the need for attention? Maybe it’s the equivalent of felines purring. It’s something they do but can’t be explained scientifically.
  2. Thing I can’t wait for: The Event on NBC. One Negro POTUS (Blair Underwood) + A C.I.A. conspiracy X an assassination attempt = Me watching.
  3. Remember all of those horrible stories about the civil strife in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? Looks like many of them may have been true.
  4. Thing that I can’t wait for: Football season. Lebron who?
  5. Speaking of hood rats and hood rat stuff that you can do with your friends—I came really close to buying a Four Loko on Wednesday night. Real Close. Dangerously close.
  6. Not that I needed convincing or anything but the Taliban are really horrible people.
  7. Thing I can’t wait for: The next Roots concert anywhere remotely near me. It never gets old.
  8. Yes the Taliban are horrible but the anti-homosexual elements in the Ugandan government are just mean-spirited and crazy.
  9. How long before T.O. and Chad break-up and cause the Bengals to have a horrible season?
  10. Thing I can’t wait for: The rest of the fall TV schedule. Sookie, Bill, Michael Weston, and Don Draper can’t last for ever. Why yes, I do need a life.
  11. Thing I can’t wait for: My spaceship.
  12. If I ever met Prince I would be afraid to look him in the eye.
  13. Four words: Thundercats the movie 2012. Hoooooo!!!
  14. Thing I can’t wait for: Today at 5:00.
  15. In the aftermath of the oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, we keep hearing about the everyday people were changed by the oil spill. Check out this article about the everyday people who were changed by the explosion on the oil rig itself.
  16. These sandwiches are giving the Double Down a run for its money.
  17. He put his foot up his opponents a** in Tuesday’s Republican Primary but do the GOP types still love John McCain.
  18. Don’t feel to bad Sen. McCain, you would’ve had to deal with crap like this if you were president.

Random Thoughts

  1. The god awful concoction above is a Four Loco. I had no idea what a Four Loco was until about three weeks ago when my little big sister, Dale asked me about it. Apparently Four Lokos  Loki contain 11% alcohol per volume, have various fruity flavors, and caffeine to make a night out with your peeps, homies, dunnies, or whatever you people call yourselves these days more action packed. From what I can tell Four Loko is basically a Steel Reserve (8.1% alcohol per volume) 211 on steroids which a much pleasant personality. I have yet to tasted one yet but I’m sure it’s the malt liquor version of KFC’s Double Down sandwich. (You just swap out the hypertension you get with the Double Down with five minutes in a truck stop bathroom with Ben Roethlisberger.) If alcoholic drinks had theme songs I’m pretty sure Four Loko’s would be “Gimme That” by Lil Boosie and Lil Webbie.
  2. “Have you seen Why Did I Get Married?” My older, white coworker asked me the other day. She then went on to HIGHLY recommended it to me and tell me how great the acting and story is. I honestly died a little inside and would have shed a Denzel tear, if I could cry that is.
  3. Sunday morning I decided I want my country back. From whom I will be taking it back from I don’t know but I would like it back.
  4. According to the new book “The History of White People” by Nell Irvin Painter all homo sapiens share 99.99 % of the same genetic code-no matter their race.
  5. This is probably old news to some, but according to the last census (2000) 92 % of black people who are married, are married to another black person. Yep.


I’m having a Double Down, a side of large potato wedges and a Four Loko of dinner tonight so this might be the end of your friendly neighborhood Agent of M.E.
