Pre Happy Post Joy

Above the Standard

Since I've been on bed rest music, and the last of my summer reading has kept me entertained more so than music videos, but here are a couple that
made my day !

Last but not least my favorite video of the summer, and now awaiting Nas official "Nasty" video,

Something to get lost found for.

I love tasty things and smooth lips.
Smooth, wet and warm lips make the best kisses!
One of Lush's ( my favorite all natural body central stores) top 5 items!


Beyonce finally confirms her highly awaited pregnancy at the VMA's last night.
As I will catch up with a repeat of the VMA's because umm I do have a life, mostly now recuperating... How could you miss it?  It made the news, Good Morning America and various talk shows way before noon. 
So no one was escaping this news, though my sister  in Long Island was heavily disappointed she wasn't personally notified.
Yeah, the world understands.


I stay with a stash of this just in case, you know. 

"“I want to talk about something that happened on Tuesday night. About 8 o’clock here on the east coast R&B singer Chris Brown tweeted, “No more planking for me unless it’s on a sexy lady. Lol.” So I saw this tweet and I retweeted it adding, “You spelled “punching” wrong.” Obviously in reference to that fact that Brown was arrested in 2009 for assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna.
But now in the light of day, I’d like to apologize to Chris Brown and to his fans that are known as ‘Team Breezy.’ To Mr. Brown, I apologize for referencing the fact that you beat the crap out of Rihanna. It was disrespectful of me to draw attention to the fact that you put your girlfriend in the hospital. [People in the background laughing] And further, it was not my place to make people remember that you beat a woman with your fists, leaving her with multiple facial contusions, a bloody nose, and a split lip. I know that now.
I also appreciate the fact that you tweeted me, letting me know that children conduct themselves better than I do. You are correct, and I could only hope to one day mature to the point where I can conduct myself in a more adult manner. Possibly by throwing a chair out of a window and storming out of a building with my shirt off. [Laughter] I ask only for your patience.
To Team Breezy I would also like to say that I’m sorry. Thank you for your thousands of tweets which taught me a lot about the creative possibilities of spelling, grammar, and syntax.  Possibilities I couldn’t even imagine before last night. In particular I’d like to thank the female members of Team Breezy, who have taught me that as long as you can sing, you can beat the living hell out of a woman and other women will still love you.
And lastly, I apologize to everyone for using Twitter to subtly address the fact that I think it’s disgusting that a guy who put his girlfriend can, a mere two years later, be warmly welcomed back into society and appear on shows such as Saturday Night Live, as if everything he did magically never happened. It won’t happen again.”

50 Cent and my favorite late night host Chelsea Handler. They may not be an item now but they have taste tested each other. I sense in this relationship 50 Cent was the aggressor while Chelsea was just sampling goods from the candy shop.
