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…

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…..

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.

Old folks need to ACT RIGHT!

2010 is almost here and I know everyone is all gung ho about new years resolutions. So, Im gonna share one of mine with you…

One of my resolutions is to continue to restrain from kicking an older persons ass!

Now I know it sounds a little rude and disrespectful but lets be real, yall know yall feel the same way.

Old folks think they run the town tonight, last night.. shit.. every night since Christ was born. They think that because they’ve been on this earth a little longer than some of us, they can do whatever the hell they want and say whatever the hell they want. And Im here to let it be known; it aint going down like that. Yes I have respect for my elders, but sometimes they just get a little out of hand.

For example, Im in the supermarket waiting on line to pay, and because I didn’t move forward in a timely manner (according to her old ass), she decided not only to skip me, but to assault me with her baggage. Then she gonna have the nerve to talk shit. I told old girl straight up, ” Baby boo you bumped me, but one hit from me, and your ass will end up admitted to the nearest hospital. So slow ya role”. Was I wrong for that? I don’t think so. I could have just attacked her like I initially planned on.

They always talk shit about how us “young’ns” don’t have respect and boy how times have changed. Man, fuck that. Last time I checked, before we were 25, 65, or 105, we are all human first. What happened to basic and common courtesy and respect for a fellow human being? I don’t give a damn what you been through or what you’re going through now. You’re gonna have to respect me as well or else things are gonna get crazy. You’re never too old to get checked. Who gon check me boo?.. SHERNITA will!

So in the meantime, I’ll continue to keep it cool for 2010. But make sure and warn your out of control elders that if they cross me, things could get severe. I aint the one.

Flats are out Heels are in.. get into it!

kitten heelSo I’ve noticed lately that the general height of a woman’s shoe heel has decreased. Now don’t get me wrong, Im all for comfort, but I gotta look good in the meantime.

Now 4 inches in my opinion is just too damn high, unless you got a ride to and from the party.(and dont be tardy)  Give me a strong 2.5 to 3 inch heel and Im good to go. But I’ve heard and seen this monstrosity called a Kitten Heel. And Imma be honest… that does not count as a heel or even a real shoe for that matter. A kitten heel is just plain pointless, it clearly doesn’t give enough lift and it makes your legs look like tree trunks. (No thank you) I don’t care if they match your outfit perfectly, I don’t care if they are comfortable.. I don’t even care if you got them for free! It’s just unforgivable.  There’s nothing wrong with a little wedge but the kitten heel… just ruins lives.

Now I know you’re wondering how I feel about sneakers… so here goes…If it don’t have a heel then it better be a high top otherwise.. just throw it in the trash. I’d actually rather you put on a serious sock and walk on releve (a rising up onto full point or half point from the flat of the feet.)….than to have on any type of flat situation. Im just being honest…

Ladies, if you’re gonna step out and show them what its all about, Please put on a shoe that’s appropriate…. flats don’t count. They never have and they never will.

The Gumbo’s Good Ain’t It?

Hope you saved room for seconds….
