You're welcome!

My air purifier was very inexpensive, and as a bonus, it looks like an egg.

WMCTV : Clown calls woman 'unbeweaveable,' finds himself unemployed

A clown at a fair was fired for calling a woman nappy headed among other things. I think if you go to a comedy show you should expect some teasing but she was just walking by.
That clown was out if line especially since the woman wasn't participating in the dunk. The fact that he called her Shanaenae makes me think he has some racist or at least prejudiced leanings. That woman carried herself better than that. Instead of firing him, I think he should have had to take classes to learn why his behavior was offensive.

Am I the only one who thinks the clown resembles insane clown posse? Wth is that doing at a family event. Lol

Seriously thinking of blocking her. She is always sticking her nose in other people's business. The picture wasn:'t of you. secondly why are you calling someone else to complain about what's on my page? I really could out you about a lot of stuff you think I don't know about your business.

I'd like to think that even if I'm not on television, I am affecting the ways in which children see themselves and their aspirations by wearing my hair naturally.

I think the discussion on straight naturals was interesting. IMO while I wouldn't say that person isn't natural I don't think it's the same either if you always or almost always wear your hair straight. My grandma and her mom never had relaxers but the only time you saw their hair in its natural state was on wash day right before they pressed it.They wouldn't dream of not pressing it. They had long hair. At one point waist when my great granny was young. I do have relatives who wore theirs curly but they have looser textures. . I don't think I grew up thinking I had to have a relaxer per se (my first relaxer was in high school) but that unless you had a certain texture it needed to be covered with a wig, braided or somehow altered with heat or chemicals.
So I've been taking Hair, Skin & Nails vitamins for about 3 weeks now and my skin isn't exactly *omfg awesome*, but I have less breakouts. We're talking max. 1 pimple per week vs. my previous 3-4. Then again, I also stopped taking BC. Thinking to try Evening Primrose Oil.

Skin looks "supple," and my cheek pores are less visible, but I have no idea what to do w/ all this oil--I was never an oily teen. I busted out an old sample of the Aveda Botanical Kinetics Gel Cleanser that didn't work before, and now it's amazing...but I'm an oil slick in 3 hours. I've heard people with oily skin say that in order to prevent your facial oil pores/glands(?) from overworking after you rinse away all oil to only wash your face w/ cleanser once a day. Can't do that just yet, face feels sticky w/ oil...

Side note on HSN vites: my nails are still "layering off" and "off-white" but they're not breaking/bending easily anymore. Some of my hair strands themselves appear to be thicker than when I first went natural, but I think that's just cumulative good-hair-maintenance practices which've made my scalp/follicles produce better hair.

Just checking in after a few days away. I see there haven't been any updates to the site... as in, I still had to scroll, hunt & peck to find the last post I read to catch up on new posts in threads I've been keeping up with. Oh how I miss that little blue button.

In other news, I'm seriously considering asking my doctor about having a hysterectomy. These last 13 months have been rather... *challenging*. I've never been "regular" in the typical sense, but since last August my periods have been even more unpredictable. "Normal" for me is having a flow lasting 7 to 8 days, but in the last year I've spent the first 3 to 4 of those days going through a super plus tampon and pad every 1 to 2 hours. Back in March I had a period, only to go through the above scenario again 13 days later. After my period ends, I'll have to wear a pantyliner for several days due to a clear, odorless discharge that continually flows... and the number of days that I'm having to wear a pantyliner keeps increasing with each month.

Thank God I have an understanding/sympathetic/patient husband, but I know that he (& I as well!!!) would like to be intimate more frequently.

Sorry for the rant, but my period started today. Was it supposed to? I don't know anymore, and my phone app has been pretty useless b/c even it can't predict/track my period with accuracy. I have fibroids, I'll be 44 this month, and I'm done trying to have kids. The fact that I still have my uterus is a miracle compared to my immediate family history. My mom had to have hers removed when she was in her late 20's, and my sister had hers removed at 40.

I'm so done with all this. I'm tired of the messed up underwear and bedsheets. I'm tired of the hurt looks on my husband's face whenever I have to deny him. I'm tired of the paranoia -> I'm a musician at my church, so it's not like I can tip out at anytime to check myself, and consequently tomorrow is First Sunday, so all ladies wear white. That means I'll have to wear extra reinforcements and look/feel like the Michelin man.

Again, my apologies for my rant and TMI, but this -> <- is how I'm feeling.

Moving day for us is 9 days away. We aren't moving far, just about 5 miles from where we currently live. It will be a big change for me however, I can get some semblance of independence back. We (my daughter and I) have rented a condo for the past four years and in that time, my medical conditions have gotten worse to the point where several days a week I am stuck upstairs in my bedroom unable to descend or ascend the stairs to get to the kitchen. I would be forced to wait until she got off of work to bring me something to eat depending on the time of day that she left for work or eat crackers and drink water if she was going to be out late. No more. This apartment is one level and I can get to the kitchen when I need to. Praise The Lord!

Not easy to change as frequently which led to a few embarrassing moments recently. I messed up a friend's blanket on her couch. Or I'm constantly worried. My sheets are horrible because it's impossible to sleep the whole night without messing them up. I had a period. went off. started spotting two weeks later. then another period two weeks later. The doctor said I don't have fibroids. Not sure what's up with my body.. I went back on the pill. Hoping this works.

It can't be seen on the web either. I was testing to see if it could be seen either way and it can't. I let Eve know. Thanks adthomas for the heads up.

I was on Netflix. First I watched a standup comic from South Africa then I watch ed Hotel Rwanda. I should have doneit the reverse order.
@AdT is it the Noah guy's African American? I have that in my queue. I always watch comedies last because of what you just went through.

Uhhhh so I am concerned about this sew-in. I will wash it this week.However there is a section on the top (my crown) where the braid tail is sewn that sounds squishy. I dug my fingers in and there is moisture.Is this sweat? It has the funky hair smell I guess. I know I had been walking and biking to my school and this heat is a mofo. Not only that if it is sweat how can I hope to get my hair dry when I wash it? Will the hooded dryer be able to get it all dry?

I watched another movie later about a runaway slave escaping to freedom. It had potential but some of the acting was lacking. Thandie Newton? had a horrible southern accent.
