Shernita’s Blog from Prague 6

Pictures can’t fully describe how beautiful this country is. It really is a sight to see. I’m truly thankful to be able to witness it.

Another beautiful thing here in Prague, is Love. There is love everywhere. Young and old. Couples are everywhere, openly displaying how they feel for each other. From kisses, to warm embraces to holding hands. It’s here  in Prague. It’s really awesome to see elderly couples appearing to be as much in love now as they were when they were first married. Yes, married. I’ve seen a lot of wedding bands. A lot.  No one is ashamed to let the world know that they are in a relationship, and they are proud to be “taken”.

I must say it’s a nice change from NYC. I notice that there’s a lot less PDA (Public Displays of Affection ) going on in the states. I feel like it’s frowned upon. It makes me wonder if NYC has got it all wrong….

My future husband and I will be very wealthy (just putting that into the Universe) , and we will definitely come to Prague to join in on the PDA action. Or shit, we’ll get that PDA poppin right in NYC.. who knows…

Yummy isn’t it?

Shernita’s Blog From Prague 5

Things have been really wonderful here in Prague. It’s countdown time to my return home and I know yall miss me (don’t front). I’ve been having a magical time with some really magical people. The history and beauty of this place is breathtaking. The parks here are to die for. I don’t think there’s a park in America that can compare to any of the parks here. I’ve visited Petcin, Vysehrad and Stromovka park. Stunning! (Pics on facebook soon)

I’ve also had a blast participating in Stare Offs. Yes, Stare Offs. I’ve been trying to see how long I can stare back at someone or how many different faces I can make. People have been smiling back lately, which makes it more fun. However, today was a first in the history of Shernita’s Shenanigans. Today, I participating in my first Growl Off. Yes, a Growl Off. What is a Growl Off you say? Well let me tell you…

So I’m minding my sweet lil business walking down the street and a small boy stares me up and down then proceeds to run towards me arms open wide. I thought he was going to hug me but at the last minute he decides to swipe my leg. Then he turns around, stops and growls at me. Now, you know Grandmas ain’t raise no punk, and shit I’m from BK Who da fuck want war????… So I growl back. This growling match continues for what seemed to be like 5 long minutes. Then his older sister comes to the door confused as hell, to the point where she runs back inside screaming. Then his mother comes to the door and is clearly baffled at this duel that’s occurring. I was a lil nervous but I couldn’t back down not when I was this far in the game. So the growling continues until I am laid out on the sidewalk growling and cracking up and the lil boy has now run away smiling. Andddddd Scene!

I know this sounds like a Charlie Murphy True Hollywood Story but I promise this really happened. Fa Real… there were witnesses. Ask if you don’t believe me.. fa real…

Shernita’s Blog From Prague 3

Nothing is free in Prague. And I do mean nothing! When you sit down to eat, the only thing you won’t pay for are utensils. Water? Gotta pay for it. Ketchup? Yup that too. You even have to pay to use the restroom at certain establishments during certain times. Lucky for me, I haven’t had to go THAT bad thank God.

I just finished performing and judging at Dancer of the Year 2011. Dancer of the Year is an annual televised dance battle. We had to choose 10 finalists to battle their asses off and eventually choose a winner. Real talk, it was tough. I honestly wanted to choose them both. The venue was dope, SaSaZu. Dope club and restaurant. It was awesome. Of course I looked stunning. And my performances… life changing! One of the things I can appreciate (at times) is the simplicity of being overseas; I signed some girls’s ticket. Like yea, autographs are poppin out here. Go figure.

Battles are a big thing out here. There is a clear separation between commercial dance and underground. It’s like you’re not allowed to do both. I’m thankful that I have found a way to be successful but doing both, I hope the people here take notice. Im about making this money (Dollars, Krowns, Euro, Yen, Pounds, scrilla, dough, cheese, cheddar, Gwap etc) doing it all from ballet, to modern, to chicken noodle souping and cat daddying all over the world!

Everyone loves me here.. (of course lol) I honestly don’t feel like I’m with “strangers”. I feel like Im with my family in another country. I am well taken care of. I’m around really good people. God is poppin. ( does the Cat Daddy for Jesus)

Tadow! More coming soon!!

I love Prague. The weather is beautiful, the city is beautiful and I’m beautiful. What more could a girl ask for?

View from Paddle Boat on Vltava River

Things are definitely different here. The amount of cigarette smoking is killer! The jig is definitely down on that one. Imma need to find some sort of febreze situation, because me smelling like cigarettes is not popping. So you can run and tell dat.. homeboy.

Honestly, there aren’t much disappointments here except for how far behind this country is. It’s a shame. In the club, not only are girls wearing flats (God help us ) but they are rocking hard body to Jenny from the Block and Yeah by Usher! But even on a more serious note, the internet is sooo far behind here. I don’t understand how the internet isn’t the same anywhere I mean after all it is the WORLD WIDE WEB! WTF! I googled Kanye West (of course) and the first video that popped up is Stronger. WTF! Ole boy has a brand new album out Czech Republic!!! (ps I think I saw a poster of a Wyclef album posted in a music store) This jig continues to fall…

The stares that I get are absolutely astounding. I mean, people will stop and stare and stay staring as I pass. It’s the rudest thing but its also pretty flattering. (Thank you God for this beauty)

There aren’t many things open in the late night, which is something I’m definitely not used to and dogs are allowed everywhere and I do mean everywhere. Restaurants have treats and water bowls for the dogs when they come in lol. All in all, I’m having a blast and this is exactly what I needed. (Does booty drop for God)

Up next.. my sightseeing!!! Stay tuned!!

Air Conditioning.. Enough is Enough

Now I know summer is coming to an end… but the air conditioning isn’t.

I can appreciate some nice cool air just as much as the next person, but is it really necessary to catch pneumonia just from doing simple tasks such as riding the train or shopping? I don’t think so.

Each and every summer, (on our lovely affordable public transportation system *sarcastic* ) I’ve had to ruin my outfit by carrying some sort of sweater or jacket for risk of freezing to death just to get to my destination. Its just not fair. ( I like to look good ya know?)

Or let me dare NOT  walk into some sort of electronics store! The freeze is on. My ears go numb and my nose starts running and by morning… Im popping the Dayquil just to make it through the day. It’s not right.

Summertime in NYC should not lead to possible death from hypothermia…

Although the temperature is cooling down, Im pretty certain the AC will be bumping well into november in many NYC areas. So bundle the hell up.

Is it still poppin?

A few years ago, I was having a conversation with my aunt while we were getting ready to go out.  So amongst the semi girly chit chat in front of the mirror, she went in her purse, and pulled out something I had never seen in the purse of a woman that age….

Something so astounding that my jaw dropped to the floor ( not really but kinda).

No it wasn’t a weapon.

No it wasn’t a vibrator ( I could have dealt with that).

It was…

It was…..

LIPGLOSS!!!

I was stunned.

My aunt is like 60 something years old.

Since then, one question has plagued my mind: How old is too old to be wearing lipgloss? I mean, is there some sort of age range for lipgloss? Or can one wear lipgloss for the rest of her life? And at what age should we being wearing lipstick? It’s all very confusing.

Now don’t get me wrong.. My aunt is fly as hell! But when she pulled that lipgloss out, I honestly didn’t know what to do. I mean you really can’t go wrong with a shiny lip.. well unless it looks like you put the whole tube on….. but that’s a whole ‘notha blog.

How long can our lipgloss be poppin?

Let me know your thoughts…..

twitter.com/shernitasofly    Follow me. You know you want to.

…you did what? and I should respond how?

So I’m on the A train heading home, minding my business. I notice a guy with a sketch pad. He takes a seat. The he gets up and takes a seat 1 over from me. (This is when I knew the jig was up) Ole boy (aka older man) proceeds to start drawing me. Yes, he starts drawing me. Every time I look over, he looks down. What he doesn’t know is that my peripheral vision is poppin, so I caught his ass long time ago.

As I sat there, being semi stalked, this situation sparked some thoughts in my mind….

Back in the day, if a man did that, it would be considered romantic, nowadays its considered psycho. It also had me wondering if he was younger, would I have been flattered instead of freaked out?  The whole “courting” process nowadays is jacked up. As a female you’re either getting hissed at, called a bitch (because you’re not interested in said hollering party) or getting stalked.

What happened to the days when men acted like gentlemen? Like seriously females, when’s the last time a man actually said “Would you like to dance?” What happened to things like manners, respect and ummm … sanity?

I know times have changed, but chivalry (and mental stability) sure as hell aint dead. If you aint acting chivalrous or (mentally capable) , then keep it moving right on past me to a woman of low caliber or the G building; because like MC Lyte said.”I’m not having it, no I’m not having it.”

Im still wondering if I should have given ole boy with the sketch pad a chance. After all, he found something interesting about me and decided to try to preserve it on paper and in his mind. And really and truly, when someone takes the time to let you occupy their mental space, you should be thankful…

I guess I’ll never know about the A train sketch artist.. mainly because I got the hell up and got off the train….

Everybody Calm Down, its not Summer Just Yet

So Im sure we’ve all noticed that the temperatures are rising. YAY! It is definitely time to put the bubble triple fat goose northface fur fleece chincilla coats away!

However, some type of jacket is STILL necessary. I mean , let’s be real… it gets damn chilly at night! There would be no need to walk around with your shoulders all high and hands in your pockets if you would have packed some type of light long sleeved outerwear.

Got it? Good!

So now that we’ve discussed the arms, lets talk about the legs. Shorts? Really? I mean.. I guess I could deal with a bermuda short… then again.. No I can’t. And actually, I WON’T! Bare legs are not an option yet, cover them joints up. Your leg hairs are standing straight up because its type cool outside. Chill out.

And lastly, on to the feet… FLIP FLOPS??!! FA REAL?!! Thats just plain nonsense. If you have to wear a leather, you should NOT have your toes out! That’s just plain ridiculous. I mean come one people!!! We are all excited to finally have warm weather but there’s no need to jump the gun.

In conclusion, it will be officially warm soon. No need to worry. So in the meantime, calm that ass down and dress appropriately. Thanks.

I know you were hungry…. It was late but it was good wasn’t it?

The Winter Olympics aka What were they thinking?

Now I’ve always been a fan of the Olympics. I think its remarkable what some of these athletes do. However, I’d really like to know who invented some of these events.  I mean seriously…

Some of these events truly have me wondering..and honestly Im actually a bit confused.

Ice Skating, Skiing and Speedskating…  I deal with. But curling?

Who…. invented….. Curling…. and Why? To me it looks like a big ass hockey puck and a swiffer.  I mean.. #cmonson

Now lets talk about Luge. Who said it was okay to fit ur ass on some piece of plastic and just slide… and did I mention that your toes have to be turned IN! Yall know as a dancer , I can’t stand a sickled foot!  The only reason I would do the luge is to wear those cute ass American one pieces! I know for a FACT , I’d look stunning in one of them. I would have to add some glitter or sequins or something though.

But, despite all of this madness, the award for the WTF Event goes to the biathlon… HANDS DOWN! Athletes ski for a while and then shoot targets, then ski some more and shoot more targets. Maybe its me, but what the hell is that about! #wheretheydothatat  Is the Olympic Committee drunk? They would have to be in order to approve some of these events. Or who’s “doing favors” to get these events recognized? The jig is all the way up. #sideye

What baffles me even more, is the fact that people are dead serious about these sports! People train years for these events!

This is clearly one thing I may never understand, but before I go, I have come to this theory: Most of these events were created out of sheer boredom. There was nothing else to do because it was too damn cold, so hey why not make up some foolishness and call it a sport?.

Maybe we should all be inspired by the events at the Winter Olympics, when life hands you snow and boredom, just figure out something to do with it and maybe one day it’ll get recognized on a worldwide scale.

The Gumbo’s good aint it?

Eatup…

But save room…

Hair today Gone TODAY!!

Every time I look in the mirror, I thank God for a few things.. Number 1: For Being Alive, Number 2: For Being Absolutely Gorgeous and Number 3: For not having hair in inappropriate places. There are females out there with facial hair and chest hair … this is when I realize how blessed I really am.

Now I know that one can’t control where hair grows, but one can sure as hell keep it under control!

As I sat on the train one day, minding my business, this woman comes and sits down in front of me. It would have been all good except for the fact that she had a MUSTACHE! Now come the hell on! I mean, aren’t there products for that? Surgery maybe? Prayer even?! Its just not right. It’s 2010, we have a black president, equal rights (almost), and the jig is still up! There’s no need to be walking around looking like that.

It’s also not fair to the people around you to have to deal with that inappropriate ass hair! Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country! The answer is.. GET RID OF THAT UNSIGHTLY HAIR PLEASE! Nair, Sally Hensen, Sallie Mae, a razor, a knife, or shank; I don’t care how.. just get it out of here. Thank you.
