All I can see is an endless forever between me and you
Who would have thought that we would have what we do
And though it sometimes gets hard it stills feel brand new.
I have no choice in the matter the heart feels what it feels
Sometimes I pinch myself just to see if it's real
It might not matter to many but for me it's a big deal
Our love is everlasting round and round like a wheel.
You are the missing piece of my soul that found me
I am your rib that was missing and now you can see
Why it's so important for you to hold the key
To my body mind and soul so that you can set me free!

First of all the thing that even made me want to speak on this is I was surfing si.com and ran across the headline "Shaq: Jackson nurtured fued with Kobe". So anybody who pays attention to sports knows about the shaq vs kobe fued. So then I start reading and run across the set of words "I'm going on record as saying that me and kobe are the best guard-center combo the Lakers ever had." America I'm not going to lie They were dominant, but I vomited several times after reading that. First of all thats disrespectful to other Laker greats like Majic and Kareem who he specifically said he and kobe were better than. Who also won more titles than shaq and kobe. It was also disrespectful when he said that they were better than wilt chamberlain and jerry west who were pioneers of the sport. Nobody gives a d**** who the best Laker guard-center combo was. People are impressed with bottom line figures though, so if anything shaq and kobe were underacheivers. But it all boils down to Shaq still wanting to be relevant. The older he gets the less he wants to here about the next great player because with him its like when a kid is used to being the baby of the family but then his momma get pregnant again and he just start hating on the new baby. He did it with Kobe, and Yao. He always tries to put himself up so high, not even realizing what a great legacy he already has but gets diminished each time he tels us how great he is. You know like the pretty girl who tells everyone how pretty she is. Dude just chill leave the game like a grown man, not flipping everybody off as you walk out the door. Nobody can do what they used to do 10-15 yrs ago. Sh** I used to consider myself to be one of the best madden players out there now with this new internet thing I'm getting my a** handed to me, but you don't see me dissing little kids.
Shaq stop hating on players that when its all said and done may actually be better than you, stop making songs asking people to tell you how your a** taste, and stop thinking that the whole shaq-fu thing was ever funny.

What I don't want for this country is for people to be so blinded by the color spectrum that they lose sight of what's really important which is that finally Bush will be out of office and it surely can't get any worse than what he's done for us or should I say to us! At the same time people please know the views of your candidate. Know what they intend to do with our country know what they stand for and learn about their background before you make an uninformed decision and it back fires on us.
I heard this interview on the radio today where a reporter was asking some young black men who they were voting for, of course they said Obama. When asked about Obama's decision on having Palin run as his VP they said they would have no problem with a woman as his Vice President! HELLO, that's McCain running mate! See the reporter switched all of Obama's stances with McCain's and just told the guys that they were Obama's and they all sided with Obama, not even knowing that the reporter just proved his point on people choosing their candidate based on color. This type of uninformed decisions could bring this whole country down to it's knees. I don't want to bore you with all this electorial mumbo jumbo all I want to say is that knowledge is power and please make sure you are all informed and make your decision on the candidate that best fits you!

Man wtf is really goin on? Like dudes do this 4real? I know he got alot of money, but nowadays or maybe even longer than I have been noticing, money seems to give people a pass on normally socially unacceptable shit. But whatever. I'm done.

First I'm start off with the Sean Bell Verdict (White America you knew it was coming):
"Maaan Thats Some Bulls**t" Now that I got that off my chest. This is some scary stuff for real. Scary and Agitating to be exact. Its scary because NY policemen shot this man, unarmed mind you, fitty times. Not only fitty shots, but one officer even re-loaded. If you unload a full clip into a car, stop to reload but your fellow officers are still shooting while you reload cause if you all re-loaded at the same time someone would have noticed that no one was shooting back. And if my facts are wrong about the number of shots fired america please tell me. But lets say I am exaggerating on the number of shots fired, how many bullets into an un-armed husband and father of two daughters is appropriate? I thought the rodney king verdict was crazy this is insane. LISTEN AND LISTEN CAREFULLY. WE SENT A YOUNG BLACK MAN, MICHAEL VICK, TO PRISON FOR FIGHTING DOGS, BUT WE SET FREE MANKILLERS? PROTECT AND SERVE WHO? MAN LOOK WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR YOUNG MINORITY MALES. IT WENT FROM BEING YOU HAD TO WORRY ABOUT THE HOOD TAKING YOU UNDER, BUT TO NOW YOU CANT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COPS AND THE ROBBERS. Man I personally hate when my people, black people play the race card because I know at times our theories can get out of hand, but come on when its blatant. And I know some smart-ass is going to say "Well one or more of the officers were minorities" Well slaves were used to catch other slaves back in the day as well. Speaking on behalf of black people I think we all agree that we have our real sh** and our knockoffs. Simply put we are not all made the same it takes a certain kind of person to consciously aid others in the slaying of your own people. I assume that remains true to any race or walk of life but I'm speaking as a black man.
I'm also scared cause I've seen prey become the predator over less. We all remember the Rodney King Riots and that was just over an a**-whooping. I don't want to see anything ill go down but you can only push people so far before they feel backed into a corner. I plead with you America we have got to find a way to stop this injustice because each example is just like a festering sore on the image of this country. Now this is not an attack on any race by any means but an attack on injustice and flatout B.S.
NOW ONTO JOSH HOWARD:
Again I repeat "Man thats some bulls**t". Josh whats the deal homey? Man you can't put people in ya bidness like that kinflok. for those of you who dont know Josh Howard plays for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks are currently in the playoffs and last week Josh Howard went onto a nationally broadcast radio show and admitted that in the off season he puffs the majic dragon. Now I said to myself thats real but TMI. He then went on to say that most NBA athletes do too. What part of the game is this? It was enough to tell on yourself but you bring yo potnas into it too thats not cool. I like Josh Howard as an athlete I've never met him but I wonder why he said that? Did he think about how that made the nba look? How thats gone bring unnecessary heat on his fellow athletes? Or how about how some kid that wants to be in the nba someday might take that. that kid who wants to be like Josh Howard? Look I'm the First person to say that its the responsibility of the parents to raise their child, but being a parent myself now I see how celebrities and the media can make it hard on a parent. Whether we know it or not Hanna Montana has more control of our kids than we do. Which by the way why the hell is R. Kelly named the pied piper? Didn't the pied piper kidnap all the children from the village using his"Golden Flute" that spewed out golden tunes that smelled like pee? Anyway I close by saying celebrities and athletes and the media and myself included, it may not be your job to raise other people's children but it is your job to not f**k it up.

By this time I'm pissed off because I know that I don't have fake jordan's in my store. I know that Htown is trying to get a pair of shoes from me for free and I am not going to allow anybody to take advantage of me by any means. So when I get to the store and actually look at these shoes myself it is horrible. Those shoes weren't even close to looking like the real thing. I very respectfully told her that I would not return it because these weren't the shoes that she bought from me earlier. Htown had a fit saying she wants my DM's number and that she wanted to speak to him tonight or she would not leave. So again Irespectfully told her that our business was done and she had to leave or I would call mall security. Of course she chose the call to mall security.! Mall security came and explained to her that once I've asked someone to leave they have to leave. Our business was finished and I was not going to do the return for her. She started saying she ain't afraid to go to jail and all this other BS. The security officer told her that he knows me and that if I could do something for her I would. I always bend over backwards to help my customers. So if i'm telling her I can't or won't rather she is going to have to leave and take it up with my DM. I did give Htown my DM's office number and the corporate customer service complaint line.
I mean come on really! I did not sell this lady fake Jordan's. I had just redid my Jordan window and put out fresh shoes. The shoe that she bought from me earlier was a display shoe which was taken from the window that I had just redid. You really believe that while putting these shoes out I wouldn't have noticed that there was a problem with one of my shoes.? I mean the audicity of some people. I know this shoe is high priced but if you couldn't afford the shoe honey don't buy it.
If any of you have a story when somebody tried to get over on you please feel free to share your stories with us...

Trying to climb the corporate ladder as a woman is a little trying at times. You still have to take care of the kids and of course can't forget about your hubbie. Everyone is trying to get a piece of your day. Again I spend alot of time at work and sometimes the fam feels neglected. I leave by 8:30am and am liable to not come home till midnight on some occasions. I know some of you are thinking "midnight at a shoe store?". Yep! With audits and visits from you Regional VP you sometimes have to spend the night to ensure you have an immaculate representation of your store. All the hard work you put in will eventually pay off. If you think positive you will think of it like you hold a position that is only 3 levels down from your RVP and RVP is where I want to be. By the time I get to be a Manager Trainer which is 1 level up from where I am right now the District Manager position is right around the corner. Of course at the MT level you not only are training future managers but are helping with all the stores in your district. Basically training you for the next move up.
As a rookie manager for the company I am learning everyday. Sometimes I fall flat on my face but I always get back up, dust off, and keep it moving. I try to find out answers to my questions by reading company directives and calling up tenured managers. Even though they all have different styles they all pretty much have the same answers. We truly live by one team one goal. Don't get me wrong there is plenty of drama that goes into what we do but I definately won't go into those sore areas of the business. I will admit though the good definately out weighs the bad.
Of course on the homefront it's alittle different. They are feeling like I should be home more. I feel that but I keep preaching sacrifice and the things you have to do in life. I mean this is reality people. If you want to get anywhere in life there has to be sacrifice. Now I'm not saying sacrifice your family for your career but if I'm doing something that I love doing and I'm making decent money doing it and I'm happy shouldn't that count for something? I'm still at the stage in my life where i'm learning how to balance my career and my household. Don't quite got it down packed but i'm getting there. Mr. P and I do alot of talking and we make sure that the kids are well taken care of. Well let me rephrase that Mr. P takes very good care of the house issues while i'm selling the latest Jordan's. I want to take this time out to thank Mr. P for all that he does for his family. I couldn't dream of anyone else I would spend forever with than you daddy!!!
Corny? Don't care! It helps so much when you have someone to help you achieve your goals and you know is going to hold you down. Though sometimes I know it's hard for him he manages to pull miracles off all the time.
I'm sure that my sacrifices will pay off for me and my family. I'm also sure that my family will understand that it does take hard work and some sacrifices to get anywhere in life and will look up to me and be proud of where I am and how I got there.

Now as far as gang violence goes thats actually a scary thought that you can be killed for not being affiliated period. One would think that by remaining nuetral you can avoid problems with either side, but these gangs are like parasites they latch on to weak or struggling neighborhoods, and by weak and struggling I mean financially, and suck them dry of all life hope and happiness. Its pretty hypocritical because to my understanding, and I could be wrong, gangs were originally formed to protect the neighborhood and its people. Protecting isn't going to other hoods and killing innocent people, that's preying. Its like they are working against themselves because while they go out shooting up other hoods they put innocent people in their own hood at risk for retaliation. Point is its got to stop sometime. You know the more I look at it the more clear it becomes to me that human beings are a very destructive species. Whats even scarier is that we are probably the most intelligent which gives us more creative ways to be destructive. (I say probably because if animals could talk they would probably tell us about even more dumb sh** that we do and don't even think about. For real, how many of us have done some dumb sh** and the only person around was your dog or cat or even a random donkey to witness it?)
Now this black on brown thing. this makes even less since to me than gang violence. If I'm not sure of anything on this planet I'm sure that black people and hispanic people no matter what origin: mexican, puerto rican, dominican, cuban, nicaraguan......, we pretty much have the same struggles in this country. If you grew up poor or not even poor but in the hood you had at least one mexican neighbor. They may not have even been mexican but if you grew up down south like I did we weren't schooled on different spanish speaking countries. In Texas if you speak spanish you're mexican. Which I think also should be addressed in public schools. I think the education should change with the times. Personally I would get offended if everyone referred to me as african. Man look I love all people don't get me wrong but I certainly feel that if I can relate to anybody its another minority. And I can't understand why there is so much black on brown crime. Man we have got to come together and get over what little differences we have cause I tell you what in the eyes of the law we are one in the same. I don't care if your last name is Jackson or Garcia if them people get a hold of you you're just a suspect. So we should really get over thess b.s. color barriers because when it is all said and done random acts of violence lead to one color red. Red blood that runs in the city streets, red eyes from family members mourning the dead, and hot red tempers for those frustrated people looking for answers to these problems.
Man lets stop the hating for real not even being cliche. If the world is truly coming to an end right now we are behind the wheel with our foot on the pedal.
Now to lighten the mood before I leave you I'll let you check out some hood sh** my potna smoothie from http://realpeeplz.blogspot.com/ sent me

So I know this girl who's boyfriend just went back to contacts from glasses. He did it over the weekend so he hadn't been to work with his "new look". When he came home he preceded to tell her that he was going back to the glasses because he felt that it caused to much commotion. What? What did he mean by that? So my friend asked if someone had said something to him. He said "no not really". But I mean how do you start the conversation saying that it caused some attention but then turn around and say nobody said anything to you? So then he told her that a few of his colleagues mentioned something. So, like any girl would, she asked him who. He started calling off names and it happened to be all males. I'm sorry but number 1 is he wouldn't have even brought it up if it was all guys, right? So she kinda got suspicious at this point and asked him "so no girls said anything?". That's when he brought up a few other names and this time it wasn't just guys. My girl is tough though she wasn't just trippin' I mean she loves her man and trust him whole heartedly. So she preceded to ask him what the girls at his job said to him about the sudden metamorphesis. He told her that all they said was how different he looked.... How different he looks? Yea right! So my girl asked him what else they said that's when he started tripping talkn' bout thats why he don't tell her stuff cuz he knows she'll blow up and she has a bad temper and all this other BS. I mean fellas look alot of the time the only reason we do blow up is cuz you guys lie so damn much we don't know what to believe.
My friends boyfriend is attractive already and then when the glasses come off, watch out! She knows that girls are going to be hitting on him hell thats how she got him. The point is why can you start the story but get mad because she wants to know the whole truth. Guys I don't want to hear that he was telling the truth and why can't we as women accept this bs and that bs. I'm sorry but there is more to that story. Why do men find it so hard to tell the whole truth. Why do you guys feel the need to cover sh!t up. I know for me personally I want to know. Yea initially I might get alittle upset when hearing things that I don't fully agree with, but as long as Mr. P and I talk, not yell but talk, we can make it through another day. I wouldn't be mad at the fact that his coworkers, male and female, mentioned how great he looked. I would just be heated because Mr. P felt like he couldn't tell me the whole truth. I really don't get it. Guys if she gets upset about something like that just tell her the whole story. She might go green with jealousy for about 5 minutes until she realizes how lucky she is to have such a great guy who loved and respected her enough to tell her the truth, even though he knew it might upset her. Ladies when your man tells you stories and though you sometime fill with rage and you just want to hit something, don't go psycho Biotch on him. Just take the time to listen to him, if you don't his coworker might.....
We need to get better... I'm done with Church;)

Mr. P and I love this cartoon. We watch about 2-3 episodes a night. We ended up buying the damn DVD's because Adult Swim just stopped playing it. Great marketing ploy to keep us wanting more to the point where we just had to know what happed so we went and caved in and bought it at some Anime shop. (i didn't even know they existed). But if you want to know what the hell I'm talking about maybe you could pull some episodes off of youtube. Me personally I would start watching it from the very 1st episode cuz alot of stuff could get quite confusing. Anyway my typing all this is taking my Ichigo away from me so gotta go!!!

Ladies there is nothing sexier to men than a woman that actually knows what she's talking about when it comes to sports (and can cook)! That just gives you something else you can share with him. Now he's got no excuse as to why you can't go with him to the sports bar or wherever it is he said he's going to watch the game at. I'm not a master of all the rules yet but I have a general understanding of the game which consist of more than just knowing when they score a touchdown. I'm still learning the ins and outs of the whole thing but this is something i'm ejoying sharing with him. I'm pretty sure he enjoys teaching me. He gets a kick out of me when I'm screaming at the TV because the Ref. made a bum call. I know football season has come and gone already, GO GIANTS, but if you start now you could be ready for next season and this time you don't have to be the lost little pretty girl!

Whats the deal? Let me start by introducing myself, I am Mr. P. My fiancee, Mrs. P, and i reside in Houston TX. We're just everyday people looking for a forum to voice our opinions and get some feedback from people who think like us or people who don't think like us. We're not here trying to force views down anyones throat or persuade anyone into thinking like us, hell half of the time we don't even think like each other. Truth be told I'm just a people person, I see everyday how an average person can make it big in this country just by finding their niche. I weighed my options and since I refuse to join a reality show cast, I may as well do a lil blogging and see what i come up with. My potna (partner) smoothie over at http://realpeepz.blogspot.com gave me the low down on how to be successful in this blog game. He said "just do you." Well here I am world wide web "I might be black i might be ugly, but lord knows i'm here"-Sealy from the color purple.
