I have a boil and it is sooo painful it is hard to walk. I have had this problem on and off since I was a teen. I usually burst it but it isn't working this time. I looked up some remedies and took an epsom salt bath tonight. I never thought boils were dangerous but a friend's mom died from having a boil and something getting in her bloodstream so I'm freaked.

I just keep it clean, dry and covered with a band aid. You shouldn't pop them because that can cause an infection. It should pop/drain on it's own. Heat helps. Just put a bandaid over it and leave it be.


Hey! What have you been up to?

I'm good though. Could use some improvement in some areas but I'm cool for the most part.

So I am probably going running again tonight or hitting the elliptical. Why??? Not because its good for me but because since I've dropped the lbs i have, working out helps with my cramps now (because it used to never) making the pain more tolerable because I am almost out of drugs and can't afford to buy some. Now that is ish getting real right there. Not only that my period is much lighter now too. It's the little things.

I've lost so much weight that I actually think I gained it back. That's how much weight I lost.


HAHAHAHHAHHA.

I don't even care anymore.
I just need to prep for these races I've signed myself up in.
What good is "thinking you are 3c" if you have to treat your hair like its 4c? Makes not even a lick of sense. Why not just go through trial & error like the rest of us & find out what makes yo curls pop?

I live alone but the fam has been visiting. I can now relate to those of you who hide your stash. My smiling mom proudly told me to smell her hair and I got a wiff of my very expensive growth oil I ordered on BF. it looks like she slathered it on. Well, at least she is showing she want to take better care of her hair.

Also not enough leo dio, GOTTA WAIT TILL HALF WAY THRU THE MOVIE FOR HIS ASS. I PAID MONEY FOR HIM AND ONLY HIS FACE.


I kind of felt like Dr. Schult, was annoying because he's Mister save all the black people from slavery, that kind of annoyed me a tiny bit.

Also saying the n word so many times in a jokingly manner, like "I've never seen a n**** on a horse before" etc, made me feel like it's gonna have white people quoting it like crazy and thinking its okay.


I'd probably watch it one more time, but after that no more, maybe like a year later or something.
I'm going to have to see this movie. I have been waiting for almost a year for it to come out.

I was sure I'd dislike it for all the reasons you listed, but I ended up LOVING it. Best film I've seen all year (disclaimer: I only remember the films I've seen since August...).

I have an issue with the "n" word being used a-historically. I think it was very apropos for it to be flung all over the place in Django. That's what they called us...I also hope the constant and CLEARLY denigrating use of the word might cause a couple black people who think they're "reclaiming" something by tossing slurs to rethink some things.

I think that Dr. Schultz could have easily become a "captain save a negro" without Jamie Foxx's stoic, self-determined acting. Despite the fact Django started the film in a position of disadvantage as a slave (and honestly, he ended the film at a disadvantage as a free black man) he negotiated his conditions from jump. He always knew what he wanted and what his purpose was. To save Broomhilde. And he made sure that the doctor knew that. And while their rescue strategy started out as Schultz's brainchild, by the time they got to Candieland it was clear even to Monsieur Candy that Django was running the show.

And speaking of Broomhilde, god did I love to see a black woman portrayed as the damsel for once. It was extremely refreshing to see a black woman play something other than the sassy, tough as nails, "un-feminine" stereotype. I have a couple white "feminist" friends decrying Kerry Washington's role as weak and existing only for a man, but dang. Media portrayal as "weak" was never really a problem that "strong black women" had.

This movie was just an A on all fronts for me. I'm not hating on your post Murrcat I just have all of these FEELS and you gave me a springboard.

SPEAKING OF WHICH THAT SCENE DID GIVE ME THE FEELS, sooo funny.

It was funny, I liked Sam L, hilarious. But I'm kind of over Q.T. films, they're all the same in a way. But I guess that's what makes them Q.T. films.

and that's okay, I think I'm the only one NOT blown away by it. In fact I can't find one person who wasn't blown away by it, I'm all alone in the not that impressed club.

It was good but it didn't give me the feels like everyone else got hahahaa.
There's quite a backlash against the film for romanticizing slavery & spike lee isn't crazy about the movie. But I think he's hating.
