I don't want to be disrespectful but I was *dead* at Sienna40 talking about pouring out a little coffee..ROFL!

I immediately thought of "Pour out a little liquor for your homies....."



I always wondered about that..is it pouring it out because the other person is deceased and he/she can't drink their portion or is it just a memorial of rememberance ?

@Amneris...

I have no idea. Only "African Americans" I've seen do it or reference it are rappers in videos. And white people doing it to "be funny".. so I couldn't tell ya.

Okay.. Went to Wikipedia:

A libation is a ritual pouring of a liquid as an offering to a god or spirit or in memory of those who have died. It was common in many religions of antiquity and continues to be offered in various cultures today.


All shucks... they was doing in ancient Israel:

Libations were part of ancient Judaism and are mentioned in the Bible:
"And Jacob set up a Pillar in the place where he had spoken with him, a Pillar of Stone; and he poured out a drink offering on it, and poured oil on it". (Genesis 35:14)Isaiah uses libation as a metaphor when describing the end of the Suffering Servant figure who: "poured out his life unto death". (53:12)

African cultures:

In certain African cultures, the ritual of pouring libation is an essential ceremonial tradition and a way of giving homage to the ancestors. Ancestors are not only respected in such cultures, but also invited to participate in all public functions (as are also the gods). A prayer is offered in the form of libations, calling the ancestors to attend. The ritual is generally performed by an elder. Although water may be used, the drink is typically some traditional wine (e.g. palm wine), and the libation ritual is accompanied by an invitation (and invocation) to the ancestors and gods.
Libation is also commonly recognized as the break within the famous performance of Agbekor, a ritual dance performed in some West African cultures.


Modern:
In the contemporary United States, there is a tradition of pouring libations of malt liquor from a forty before drinking, which is particularly associated with African American rappers. This is referred to as "tipping" to one's (dead) homies (friends),[15] or "pouring one out".[16] This is referenced in various songs, such as the 1993 "Gangsta Lean (This Is For My Homies)" by DRS ("I tip my 40 to your memory"), and sometimes accompanied by ritual expressions such as "One for me, and one for my homies." This is occasionally parodied, as in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999).[17] This can also be seen in HBO's TV series Boardwalk Empire. Character James Darmody pours a drink out "to the lost," referencing both deceased WWI veterans, then later the show's own departed characters.


So apparently it's in a lot of different ones.. African, Middle East, Indian, Celts, Cuban, etc.

I have friends who are always changing their numbers and I know it is because they are dodging. If I dont know u personally I dont give you my personal cell. My boss doesnt even know my personal cell. Luckily he pays for a work cell. And I almost never get solicitation calls on my personal phone because of this. Also Im in a situation where I might get called to go to work in the middle of the night and im bad about not charging my work cell or leaving it in another room or the car. I know I will hear the house phone.
On that note Im a little ticked that a friend gave my personal cell number to someone without asking me first. It was about a professional matter and I have a work cell. I dont care who gets that number. But I dont believe in giving private numbers like that.
Marah, I always thought it was both - you pour it out in respect for your friend and usually when everyone is toasting, so it's their portion because they aren't there to drink it. Makes sense to me!

I was totally gonna spend the day doing homework but I don't feel like it anymore. It's cold and raining and I don't feel like going all the way to the library today. Gonna do my hair instead.

I have less than 20 days to complete two papers, two projects, one presentation and study for a final that's in a class where I haven't read anything since the Midterm.

ETA: At least I've accomplished cleaning/organizing my room, bathroom and closet.

I wish it would rain already. Every year my allergies get progressively worse. I just did a rinse and now I smell some strange ammonia smell. That's why I don't eff with medication, homeopathic included-because if there is a side effect, I will get it. I should just waited it out in misery.

I would have kept right on been ignorant thinking it's just something rappers made up.
