Meet Me on Monday/Minute if ya don't know Shadoe.. now ya know!

Monday Minute

and after is my girl Java...

If you could interview any person Dead or Alive who would it be? What would you ask?

Janis Joplin...whom i truly adore and feel empathy for... with that said, i would ask her this....

"You were a hardcore feminist. You were a woman who claimed to know herself and feel comfortable with who you were... Women knew you evolved in the era of sex, drugs, and rock and roll... However, let's call a spade a spade.... your generation's combination of drugs and music was as nonchalant and expected as receiving ketchup with an order of fries. With that said... you were a force to be reckoned with. You spoke the truth, albeit through slurred speech which was the norm for your decade but let us not forget those who made it through the storm... i think i saw Mick Jagger on a Viagara/Chapstick Commercial. So, no disrespect, but your truth, when you spoke it........ millions of women believed it. The women at that time wanted to believe you were strong and fighting for them. You've been quoted numerous times as saying 'Don't compromise yourself. You are all you got.' Yet you died of a Heroin Overdose. What really happened to make you seek an escape, how did you really feel? How did you as a feminist get to the point where you felt you weren't worthy. And how can we protect our sisters, daughters, nieces, and grand-daughters from your mishaps?"

You have to give up one thing for a month.What would it be - car, guilty pleasure (ie. food, drink, fav. tv show), or sex?

This question i have to answer a little differently. Your asking me if I HAVE to give up one thing. In reality if we could answer that... we'd give it up. It's basically saying that we get to choose. So, I am going to look at it like this... if one thing was taken from me and I had no access to it for a month what would those closest to me said i need to stop....

Worrying. Yeah I know it sounds lame but worrying constantly can kill you....
i'd like to live.....

Is there a word/phrase you say that you are made fun of for?  If so, what is it?

Hella..  hahaha click on hella the urban definition is funny because when i lived in the bay they use to make fun of me for saying it! Awwwwww i miss bein' a youngin'!

Which is a stronger emotion: Anger or Love?


Where was your first job.

The Federated Group. Don't Hate........

Luv 2 luv Shadoe... c'mon don't judge... gimmie a break it was the 80's!!!!

My BFF since for 27 years.... Kit Kat (Caterina)  got me the job..... thats mah gurl........

 Kit Kat & Foxy Roxy
my bff and her lil' sis!

 Do You Wear Socks to Bed?

(sometimes google is not your friend)

Do you have any Pets?

Either Pets or kids, i don't do both
(message to my kids.. run baby run.. and Tafari...
hopefully the mtn. lion knows how to sign...
mama will meet you at the bottom of the mountain m'kay?)

What Topping do you like on your Pizza...

Teriyaki and Sesame on my baked Tofu 
(i don't even know what pizza is anymore!)
Gimmie a Break Java... 
everybody can't be as drop dead sexy as you ;) !!!

What time do you go to bed?

Very Early!! But this is what happens 
when i try to hit snooze......

 and i think he's the culprit........
(you know i never get tired of his stolen donut, sugar coma pic... look for it in this book that hits the stores late Nov.)

Would you rather get free chocolate for
one year, or free potatoes forever?

Are you kidding me?? Free Potatoes forever!!!
(once again, don't judge... i never said i knew
how to pick a good man or potato)

I have not really had potatoes in over two years now. I could do without them!

Think of how many important musical figures who were lost to substance abuse. Very sad!

blueviolet said...

I'd choose the potatoes too, without question!
Shadoe? Shadoe Stevens? omg!!!
