3 Things We’re Discussing from Last Week.

(1) T***p. (Still can’t seem to spell the whole name out…) 

When he was elected, many said, “Well, what’s the worst he could do? He still has to answer to someone”. He’s playing show and tell now. He was in NY last week telling officers they don’t have to be “gentle” with prisoners when putting them in the back of squad cars and then banning folks from serving our country? As many people that DON’T want to/wouldn’t do it, you’re stopping those that do?Agh… #TransPeopleAreNotABurden



(2) It’s okay to let people go.  Continue reading “3 Things We’re Discussing from Last Week.”

It’s been a year.

So, it’s been a year and it feels like I was just picking up that SUV and hitting the road to check off yet another goal on my list. Sometimes, I still can’t believe I’m here. Even with the crowded trains, Mickey and Minnie on the train tracks, small apartments, guys yelling “Yo Ma” at every block, hitting up random premieres with and without appearances of the stars that will grace your screen, rushing to the laundromat (or sending your clothes out – because really, who has in unit washer and dryer here?). Plus more.

Thank you for being a friend!

So, I’m a Golden Girls fan. I could literally watch that show everyday for the rest of my life. So, when I heard there was going to be a GG themed cafe, I made the trek to Washington Heights (a long way from Brooklyn by train) to see what it was about.



Picture it…NYC 2017.

It’s called Rue La Rue Cafe and I loved it!! It is pretty small, like everywhere else in NY, so don’t let that scare you off. It was a soft-opening when I went but SO packed. They had a lot of Rue McClanahan’s (AKA Blanche) clothing and memorabilia so it was kind of centered off of her. A close friend of hers, Michael LaRue, is a co-owner.

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m not a big cheesecake fan, BUT I did get the chocolate cheesecake with a Bellini – both were good! While in line (you didn’t think you could just walk right in, right?), Michael came out with one of their signature items – buttermilk biscuits with strawberry butter. Let’s just say, I took some home. 😋


Oh, and in case you didn’t think this place could get any better, they play Golden Girls episodes ALL. DAY. LONG. Well…duh!

I’ll definitely be back this summer, when I’m prepared to stand in line outside. 😫

Wallpaper just like in the show!
Look familiar? Yep, it’s just like the girls’ bathroom!

Tyrese was on one last week…

By now, we’ve all heard of the Tyrese shenanigans he laid on us last week. If not, see below.

That was just, uh, mean. What?! This is the same guy who stole our hearts with “Sweet Lady” and other love ballads, but lately (last few years) he’s been losing his touch. I just can’t fathom how men can tell women how to be women, but hey..
So, I first saw this when a friend commented on a link that caused a bit of a debate. A snippet of her response was:

Women’s March NYC

So, I went to the Women’s March in NYC this past weekend and I’m so glad I did. This was a first for me, and it definitely won’t be my last (march of any kind). I was very conflicted by different posts that I saw leading up to the event. Specifically those where African-American women said they were going to sit this one out. I was crushed. Why? Some of the points were valid and I definitely understood. The biggest one? 53% of Caucasian women voted for him. Agh…
