Just Another Girl On The IRT

Freestyle musings from a pseudo-intellectual hellcat in high heels with Huxtable aspirations in a ghetto fab world. Proudly sponsored by bouts of bitchy mood swings, one too many swigs of Turning Leaf, the letters F & U and the madness that is the Rotten Apple.

Cult of personality

Tag team's back againI've been shouted out once more for a quick peek into what makes us crazy writers tick by my cohort in blogging, the ever expressive Will. This day trip into the city limits of random tidbits is brought to you by the magic number 5.

1. Thanks in part to an overwhelming need to salute a countrywoman who made good, I was named after the first Black woman to win the title of Miss Universe.

2. A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I appeared on an episode of Reading Rainbow. Yes, I was one of the dorky runts who summed up a book review in 60 seconds or less. The VHS copy will be taken to my grave.

3. I graduated high school at 16 and college shortly after my 20th birthday.

4. The approximate generation gap between myself and my three half-siblings spans my exact age: a quarter century.

5. I still have the response to a fan letter I sent way back in 1989 framed and I refuse to throw it away just out of the kitsch value. The artist(s) in question? New Kids On The Block. Stop laughing, goddamnit.

Five victims chosen to be in the hot seat:

Seeeeeee? That's why I asked you to do it. So when we FINALLY go to lunch *cough* next week *hack*, we'll already have some topics to jump off of. LOL

Seriously, thanks for playing along.
