Up Early In The Morning

Inspiration -"Dead Homiez" - Ice Cube "Up early in the morning, dressed in black/Don't ask why? 'Cause I'm down in a suit and tie/They killed a homie that I went to school with (Damn!)/I tell ya life ain't shit to fool with/I still hear the screams of his mother/While my nigga laid dead in the gutter (Shit!)/And it's getting to my temple/Why is that the only time black folks get to ride in a limo?"

What I'm Listening To - "Ill at Will Mixtape, vol 2" - Redman and GillaHouse

Question(s) I Asked Myself Today - "Why the f*ck am I awake at 8:30 on a Saturday?" and "Why am I bothering to write a post that nobody is going to read until Monday?"

I woke up at 8:30 today. That's fucked up. I can't even do that during the week when I gotta go to work. It's now 11:30 and I already been to Target to get Jessica a going away present, started washing clothes and read all the blogs in my favorites. What do I do with the rest of my day? It's raining in the ATL, and that means that people lose their damn minds behind the wheel. I ain't trying to be out on the highways with the rest of these non driving fools. I already almost got bammed up yesterday on the Downtown Connector. This chick tried to merge into my lane, regardless of the fact that I was already there. I think I'll play it close to home today, at least until the rain stops.

I feel like spending some money today. I am damn near like Scrooge McDuck when it comes to breaking bread on myself. I'll spend on other people but not myself. I don't know why, so any of you amateur psychologists out there who wanna analyze me, feel free. You ever want to just go buy some unnecessary shit? Thats how I feel today. I might even go out and look, but knowing me, I'll come to my senses at the last minute. I should start one of those wish lists that I see on everybody's blogs.

My brother called me the other day and asked what I was doing Sunday. I said "nothing, I think." He then proceeds to tell me that he is being ordained as a minister and wants to know if I will come to the ceremony. Of course, I said yes. It's still a little bit of a shock though to have my brother in the ministry. I didn't even know he was studying for that. Sure I saw the signs. First, he gave me all of his secular cd's. I had most of them anyway, but you can never have too many Biggie cd's. (SIDENOTE: Why have I had 4 different "Life After Death" albums. For some reason, one of the 2 disc set gets scratched or comes up missing and then I have to replace it by taking someone else's CD.) I also noticed that whenever he comes over, my brother downloads gospel music on my computer. He also goes to church all the time. So, I knew he was getting his Christian on, but I didn't know he was trying to be a minister. I'm happy he's found something fulfilling in his life. The only downside is now I am going to be the one getting all the pressure from my mom and grandmother about attending church. Nothing against churchgoers, but I don't do church. That's just not my scene. Maybe I'll blog about that later.

Oh yeah, I saw the funniest/most disturbing thing this morning. I was turning through the channels, when I saw this show called "N.ash.ville S.tar.s" ( I put the periods in it so people don't find my blog by searching for that show.) Disturbing image #1 was one of the hosts. A Black man with some tight ass jeans and a big belt buckle (not the ones you see in the hood) talking like he was straight off the Ponderosa. He actually used the phrase "hick hop." I was dying. Secondly, some country singer was performing a song called " Ton.k Ba.donk.a.donk" I'm not even going to go into the lyrics, just click here and read them. And if you really want a laugh, try to find the video on the web somewhere. Shit is ridiculous.

I'm about to end this rambling post, but I wanted to share with you one other thing. Cupcake (I'm gonna go upside your head with that Biggie book you gave me if you don't update your blog LOL) sent me this a couple weeks ago and I forgot to post it. This is reason # 4080 that I hate rich people. Click this link and watch the video of these damn pimpstar rims. Rich bastards ain't got nothing better to do with their money. Oops, I sound bitter, don't I? Anyway, I gotta put another load in the washing machine so I'm gonna say peace now.

I got up at 9 but I went and did a little volunteering at a local thrift shop (don't ask) mainly b/c it's raining here in DC, I don't have anything else to do, and ummm yeah I don't have anything else to do.

^^^I need a life. seriously.

I do church just not every Sunday. I don't even answer my family phone calls on Sundays because I get the usual "u should be in tha charch at this time". I guess that's another post. :-)

i'm so happy for your brother! it's cool that he's found his life's calling. usually folk don't figure that out until later in the game.

church ain't me either, but i've started watching it on television (yeah, i'm shocked, too). i stay away from creflo and bishop long, though.

don't hate on cowboy troy. i don't really listen to his music but i consider him to be a pioneer of sorts. in his way he bridges the gap existing between races as it relates to country music. he's the charlie pride of this generation.

My sister is graduating from her MDiv next month. We are all still surprised about that.
Yeah, Cowboy Troy is a wonderment...That's a great big corn-fed healthy dude!
I first heard about him when he was touring with my favorite country western group Big and Rich (they sing, "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy"). Big and Rich say during interviews that they wanna to make country music more universal/diverse and less racist/redneck. They also have a song called "Holy Water" supporting survivors of Domestic Violence.

Anyway, I think Cowboy Troy is courageous to rap over Country Western samples...hey Bubba Sparxx' earlier songs sampled farm animal noises(listen to "Bubba Talk" for the cow in the background)you knew the country western/rap connection was bound to happen sooner or later...

@ divine oasis - thanks for stopping by. I checked you out too.

@ tenacious - you aint posted since those 3 on thursday, you aiight? and I read your blog, it seems like you have a very interesting life. LOL

@ honey-libra - I'm about to head over to his ceremony in a few. And your question was the hardest one. really made me think.

@ nikki - I ain't hating on him, it was just a little off putting. I'm the last guy to judge anyone else's individuality.

@ chez niki - I didn't know he was an artist. I'm gonna have to check it out.

When I'm in the mood to just spend money on nothing I'll buy something small ... it usually satisfies the urge.

That's cool about your brother. I come from a long line of ministers and considered going that route myself.

peep this...I am forcing myself to stay sleep past 8am on the weekends because I am so used to waking up so early Mondays thru Fridays...

I think you're talking about that black country music star Cowboy me, he's just a gimmick that is lasting for just a couple years.

Every time I've moved I've had to replace this damn CD! You got a extra copy? lol

@ N search- Weekend was cool, I tried to post about it, but blogger was acting a fool. and cupcake know I still got love for her

@ chele - I actually just bought some blank cd's and burned a bunch of music off my computer.

@ ms new booty - I feel you on the nasty thoughts. It's messed up but I was scoping out the honeys in church.

@Professor GQ - I downloaded some of Cowboy Troy's stuff, it wasnt as bad as I thought it was gonna be. That being said, you wont catch me bumpin it

@ mocha - I didnt actually do it, I seem to remember reading about your shoe obsession. that costs money too, dont it?

@ Sangindiva- I got you on the laundry. I promise not to do anything inappropriate with your unmentionables. LOL

@ cool ac - not a morning person at all, I just was up for no reason

@ So...wise - I got 2 right now, but disc 1 is scratched in both sets.

@ cocoa-girl - sleep don't come easy for me. Sleeping in is the only thing that keeps me sane.

you ain't the only crazy one that gets up early on the weekends. I'm usually up between 6 and 7, no matter what time I crash the night before.

AND you ain't lying about ATL peeps not being able to drive in the rain. I got in my first car accident in the rain on Old National..don't get me started.
