Tikeetha Thomas over at A Thomas Point of View hit Lady G with a happiness tag! If you are not familiar with Tikeetha T., you might want to step over to her blog.
Baby, my Sista is the business! I enjoy reading her posts on motherhood, relationships and other real life issues.
Do yourself a favor and go check it out!
By the way, did I mention that she is a storyteller extraordinaire? YAAASSSS!
In order to fulfill my ‘Happy tag’ requirements, I am going to list five things that make me happy.
Let me preface this by saying that most of this is old hat for my core followers; and I’ll admit that it is possible that I might have copy pasted some this from my last happiness tag 😜
FYI, did you know that it is still considered plagiarism if you copy your own work and present it as something new?
Um huh…. consider that a STBB Public Service Announcement to all the students out there 😉
Anyway, where was I?
Oh yeah, I was about to say that my new followers might enjoy getting a glimpse into the mind of Lady G.
So here goes:
Five things that make me happy:
Sitcoms from the 1960’s and 70’s:
When I was a little tyke, I absolutely loved ‘Geraldine Jones’ from ‘The Flip Wilson Show.’ It’s pretty safe to say that my spicy side comes, in part, from watching Ms. Geraldine. Now, if you are unfamiliar with the show, the character, ‘Geraldine,’ is really Flip Wilson dressed in drag.
Anyway, Geraldine was flirty, feisty and she pulled no punches. From time to time, she would refer to her boyfriend, ‘Killer.’
Although ‘Killer’ was never seen, he maintained a very ‘real’ presence on the show. In fact, there was a scene where a character asked, “Who is Killer?” To which Geraldine responded, “The question is not ‘Who is Killer?’ The question is ‘Where is Killer?’
And with that, Geraldine shut it down! Clearly, Killer didn’t play!
Some of my other favorite sitcoms include Sanford and Son, Bewitched and The Odd Couple, I also like The New Odd Couple-with Ron Glass and Demond Wilson-albeit from the ’80’s.
I could go on naming more sitcoms but we ain’t got that kind of time.
Other things that make me happy include:
Give me a crisp starry autumn evening and I’m GOOOOOOD!
Quite a few of the pictures on this blog were taken with my iPhone. It should come as no surprise that I am rarely pictured in family photos because I am always the photographer.
Instruments of time, space, weather, travel
Ok, I’ll go ahead and admit that I am a bonafide geek and I am coming out of the closet!
Geeks of the world UNITE!
That said, YAASSSS!!! Here I am, I am out! Lady G is a geek!
I am that kid that made an aneroid barometer for an elementary school project. Oh stop! It was easy, all I needed was a glass bottle, a balloon and….hell you can go google the rest!
Anyway, instruments of time measurement and such fascinate the hell out of me! One day I hope to go to Greenwich England; if you are a ‘time geek’ then you already know why.
I’ll do a post about it when I get back 😉
Food and Cocktails
Give me some good food, some good drink and some good company and your girl is set!
Five songs that make me Happy (They are in no particular order)
Ok, so let me get this straight, as a huge lover of music of all types, these are five songs that make me happy but there are 10 zillion more that make me just as happy as the five listed below–I’m just sayin.’
- ‘Here comes the Sun’ written by My Favorite Beatle, George Harrison
- ‘Sun Goddess’ by Ramsey Lewis/Earth Wind and Fire
- ‘Hot Fun in the Summertime’ by Sly and the Family Stone
- ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’ by Chic
- ‘Every Little thing she does is Magic’ by The Police
Anyway, I am going to tag the following two (NOT FIVE) new followers to my blog. Flat out, I enjoy reading these blogs because they both give me happy feelings.
Did I just bite Frankie Beverly?
Tessa This chick can spin a deliciously erotic little yarn! She’s my homegirl!
Zwanjay An intelligent brother out there educating our babies!
Thanks again for the tag Tikeetha!
Stay happy y’all!
