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.

The interruption of everything

Back to basicsIt's been a long time. I shouldn't have left you. With a pic of Britney Spears to marinate to. Apologies to the God for bastardizing his rhymes, but it's the most concise and letter perfect way to do this reintroduction. Nope, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. And no, this isn't a cruel April Fools joke. This is the part where I usually regale you guys with a litany of mea culpas and halfhearted explanations for the tumbleweeds that's been blowing through this jawn for the past few weeks, but you know what? Don't hold your breath waiting on concessions of guilt this time around. It's not that I didn't want to post any updates... I've had a boatload of shit on my mind that I've wanted to chat 'bout (life, love and the pursuit of a new gig among them), but when I would sit down to put fingers to keyboard, it was a no-go. Straight blank out. Mental constipation city. 5 weekends in a row passed me by with nothing noteworthy that came to fruition. A couple nights ago, I watched a rockumentary on Showtime directed by actress Rosanna Arquette called All We Are Saying which chronicled the balancing act of work and art from a cross-section of musicians including Mary J. Blige, Chrissie Hynde, Andre 3000, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks and Steven Tyler. And the one thing that struck me was the commonality of expression or the lack thereof. Watching Sheryl Crow explain the transition from writer's block to inspiration that might be considered divine was like someone had asked me to pen the segment myself. The motivation to write is no different that a songwriter looking for just the right hook. And the urges fill in the blank spaces which I called back drafts would hit me at the weirdest times. Commuting home on the Lexington line. Waiting to get items rung up at Target. Unluckily for me, I never have anything handy to jot down a key phrase, much less a sentence, so as quickly as the moment appeared, it dissipated just as fast. However, now that I'm cursed with another bout of strep throat and dreading an impending date with a tonsillectomy on such a beautiful spring weekend, seems like there's no time better than the present to pick up where I left off. So please hold off on adding this site to the latest edition of the blog obits section, I'm not dead yet!

Oops! Pow! Surprise! Trini Princess is back in the building! So glad to see you back to blogging, sis. You've been missed. I feel you on the writer's block, though, but do your best to whoop that trick. Whatever you write, you definitely have a reader here. =)

Praise the lord! You're back! I've tuned in for 5 weeks like last year's Desperate Housewives hiatus waiting to see if anything new was coming on. I can understand writer's block. When you're busy living it's hard to step back and put it all in print. Don't worry I'm an avid Trini blog fan so I'll continue to tune in.
