Can't...stay awake...must blog...must....snore
This is Toya, your favorite new Starbucks barista. I know I have gained at least 5 pounds chugging back my own Frappucino concoctions. I am sooooo sleepy. It has been a while since I have held down a few jobs at a time and I am getting old. I explained to a friend that in December I will be pre-30, not 29. 29 is a joke-you are just sittin' around waitin' to be 30. That's all you're doin'.
I have so much I want to write but I believe that God is calling me to step up in my faithfulness meaning I can't post from work. Meaning, I need to get my tail a laptop, meaning I will continue to work 2 jobs until I am more financially stable and hopefully writing full time. Aah, I would love that so much. That would be "So choice" (love that FERRIS BUELLER, love Tia more for making me laugh everytime she says it).
Like I said, I have a lot to write about but I can't so I will write a line or two:
I feel SO sorry for you if you are not hip to Kenna's "Sacred Cow" CD. I am so sad for you. Definitely my favorite CD this year. It will inspire you. I can't say the same for Seal's new CD. I don't hate it but I don't love it and because I absolutely love the rest of his stuff, I am feeling a little salty. It's a good album, just not what I want to hear right now. Dreaming in Metaphors is absolutely one of the most perfect songs ever written in the history of music. It would be unfair for me to expect him to recreate such a masterpiece. I am trying to not be such a music snob anymore. I used to not be so nice.
Boyfriend of the Month
That is one heck of an altar call, isn't it? ...LENNY KRAVITZ!!!
As you may have noticed, there hasn't been a boyfriend of the week since Matthew Good Googa Mooga McCauneghey (I know I butchered the spelling if his name but I am falling asleep here). That is because that picture of him was so fine I just let him ride the month of August out. I am super busy so I don't think I can do this weekly. We'll try Boyfriend of the Month for a while.
Renee and I have found that I have a type. People have asked me what my type was and it was easier for me to say what I didn't want in a guy rather than what I did want. Well, tah dah, this is my type. He's black, gorgeous, he can rock out as well as appreciate a good ol' slow jam (I Belong to You), he loves his mama (the late Roxie Roker-BGLU Hall of Famer) and most importantly, he loves him some Jesus. He said on VH1 that "Are You Gonna Go My Way" was about Jesus, the ultimate rock star and has "My Heart Belongs to Jesus" tattoed on his body. Okay, he can be a bit on the lustful side sometimes especially with that tongue hockey scene in the "Again" video but hey, I love this man's heart and if you haven't been to one of his shows you are missing something extraordinary. He performs every song like it is the absolute last of the night. As much as I love him for myself, I really hope that he gets back with his baby's mama, Lisa Bonet. It's all about the kids, man, I'm no hater. Well, not today anyway.
So yes, Boyfriend of the Week belongs to my prince of Rock and Soul, Lenny Kravitz.
I have to be up in 6 hours. Agony.
