Hello, people. No applause, please. I am just returning from the state of madness, namely the VMA Awards, where Miley, according to some, made the devil smile. The wild child star turned superstar has blossomed into a thorn and basking like never before in the limelight. While I was sitting in the $5.00 seats with regular people, I was changing lives as they broke their necks trying to see how divalicious I looked. VMA finally had to put the LAPD on standby because it was bumper to bumper trying to see all this fabulousness in one take. Okay?

Now, back to Miley. I say whatever’s clever. It’s your life and you’ve been trying to prove it to the public on so many levels, I don’t think you’re as free as you think you are. However, if Madonna’s doing it at 60, 20 is even better. Alright? I really don’t know what to tell you or the people who are so disappointed that you traded your role model robe for a bikini and red lipstick.

Don’t hold your mouth agape, people. Live your life and let Miley’s play out however it may. Don’t raise your children in front of the TV and allow them to find their identities in people they most likely will never meet. It’s your own fault you’re disappointed. You really shouldn’t raise your children to look up to anything human. We all disappoint and, as my pastor at Saint Philips Holy Trinity of Light Tabernacle of Faith says…Where was I?…Oh, yes, we all entertain Michael on occasion. We fall short and backwards, as Totsy did recently, doing whatever we think feels good.

I have, Miley, in the meantime, taken a poll on certain places where botox may suit you the next time you prance it around stage.

Love and  Kisses,

The Bea

The Shooting Trend

I’m beginning to have a lot more to say on my blog. Not a whole lot about things that matter but something, nonetheless. Today is probably something to say.

Well, you know down here in Georgia, the young fella made a motion to go in that school and act like he was gonna shoot it up. I really don’t know his real intentions. Folk are complex, know what I mean? Anyhow, I have a friend in that school. She said he busted up the window where the Pre-K class was, then went to the entrance (and you have to be buzzed in unless you’re slick and walk behind somebody) and made himself known.

She said folk keep asking how they got away. Have feet, will run. Plus, no bullets were shot from this fella’s gun, so that helped. Said a teacher had taken this one kid to the restroom and he said he wasn’t finished. She said, “You’re finished now!” and took that child and ran. Folks were running in the woods, she said. All this time, I thought she was still at the middle school working and come to find out, she was running for her life this week. You just never know, huh…

Used to be this kinda thing mostly happened at the post office. Not that any place is better for it to happen…


The Darnest Thing Happened

You’ve heard the idiom, ‘You better watch your back’ right? Literally, I should’ve been watching mine. See, what happened was, I was preparing to sit at the foot of my bed, which sits a tad high. It’s a four-poster type for folk who’re full of themselves, which is me some of the time. I can’t lie to you, folks. I have my high and mighty moments but there’s always something that’ll bring  a swift reality check.

Anyhow. As I was propping myself up there, I call myself gonna lean on one of the four posts to support me. Was I ever disappointed, folks. Soon as I figured myself to be up there good, I felt my back leaning, not into the wooden post but to the air and ‘fore I knew it, down to the floor I went.

Falling is an unfortunate event. It makes you feel slightly dumb ’cause you failed to support your own self. When you feel gravity pulling you down, there’s very little you can do but wait to land and see what ailment you’ll wind up suffering. And then, you don’t have much time to think at all if it’s a short fall. You just go BLOP and hope you don’t suffer long.

There are very few ways to break a fall. Often times when you do, it’s worse and best to go with the flow and go BLOP.  Should your best efforts prevent you from breaking that fall, you could wind up splitting or twisting a vital body part. Though, as time ages you, all parts are equally vital.  I tell you what else though. That old saying, ‘A mind is a terrible thing to waste’ comes into play too. While most falls only take seconds, if the fall is fairly long, you think all sortsa foolishness like, Whoaaa, Oh, noooo!, Good Goddy Mighty, etc… which is also why I recommend you not to break the fall. Why prolong it?  Let gravity do its thing and get it over with.

I did suffer a slight head bump on the dresser and scrape to my foot. Darn if I know how my foot landed under the bed. Seems like I just folded up suitcase-like and then opened up once I dropped. Falling is such a peculiar thing.  At the time, Little Totsy was sitting at the head of my bed and as this thing happened so swiftly, all she could do was watch me disappear down under, then said something like, “Lord hammercy, why were you even sitting down there like that?” She must think I have an answer to everything.

It’s official. Obesity is now a disease. I’m not sure what to make of it. Other than the fact that I know I need to get some pounds offa me. I know my problem ain’t about no disease. I’ve been pure lazy. Not that I’m obese but I better do something quick, fast and in a hurry. Know what I mean?  This has gotten ridiculous and I’m on my nerves.

First, it was too cold to go out walking. Or, I didn’t have time, Or, I was too hot, OR. OR. OR! You get my drift? Now, the excuse is that I’m tired and my feet hurt and I need my rest and whatever else I can think of. But I tell you the honest truth folks. My feet are hurting today. I am tired and you might as well say when it comes right down to the nitty gritty of my matter, I don’t wanna be bothered with no exercise.

Yeah, I know all about how it makes the dolphins flip and feel good inside of you but I don’t have anymore. They went hunting, swimming or something or another and I’m not trying to hurry’em back this way. I tell you what though. I’m thinking of following thls new trend of getting the fat sucked right outta me. It’s easy and darn near free, with insurance. Matter of fact, I’m gonna have some muscles inserted to all the right places so I’ll look like I’ve been exercising all my life. Know what else? I’m gonna have some legs installed that’ll walk for me and get a whole new face ’cause I’m about tired of this one anyhow. I’m gonna start a charitable organization too, where fat is donated to my non-profit and I, in turn,  feed the hungry and charge all the skinny folk for fat out there wearing leggings like they get a pass just ’cause they’re skinny. Uh. No.

It’s a good plan, if I do say so myself. Why, with folk loving quick food the way they do, I may as well open up a fast food joint. Why not? Y’all all about recycling, right?

I went to see The Butler. I don’t wanna tell you what to do but you should go see it too. For awhile, I was going to see a lotta movies and finally, I got to see a good one when I saw The Butler.

For those who tried to see the video I recently posted, I apologize you didn’t get to see it. I, however, was able to see it at different locations on different computers. I don’t know what’s happening on your end. At one point, I couldn’t see it but I clicked something on YouTube and it popped up fine. Try clicking here to see what happens, if you like.

Anyhow, I didn’t come to talk about mucha nothing. I had myself a birthday. My feet don’t hurt anymore. I wasted grape juice on my carpet in the bedroom today. And I need to cut my grass. If cutting grass is up your alley, pay for yourself a background check and come cut it. I won’t be mad at you or nothing, Oh, I’m gonna get to paint up some real art over the weekend, so there’s my life, folks.

Well, I’m just gonna share a few new pieces of digital art that you weren’t able to see in the video, if you still couldn’t pull it up. I’ve been having fun with this amateur paint program and making these quick pieces.

Have yourself a good life as best you can but not however you can ’cause it may not go so well if you’re doing whatever. You can sum that advice up the best way you know how ’cause I’m not trying to figure out everything for you. Not that you asked but in case you were thinking to, don’t bother. (Wink, wink).  Besides, it’s been a long day and I ain’t got time to be messing around on no blog. Whoever thought of this blog thing anyhow? Sure wished it had been me.

Lordy mercy, I kid you not folks, it’s near cold as a popsicle down here in this south. If it’s heading that way for us, imagine what it’ll be like in the cold states. Y’all better make haste and fetch a warm spot near the fireplace.  Matter of fact, go ‘head and grab a Christmas tree ’cause time is moving fast. A global cold front is coming and I think it’s gonna be something fierce. In the meantime, I’m gonna think warm, springy thoughts and bundle in my covers.

I wish I was a bear.
