Throwback Posts While I Catch My Breath

17 March 2009 5 Comments


That picture of my latest nail design serves no purpose other than to cheer me up. After all, I get What Would Thembi Do? via Google reader and I need all the cheer in my inbox I can get.

The old Thembi would just deal with her personal problems and lay low for a while without letting you know that of course I’ll be back in a bit. The new responsible-blogger Thembi doesn’t mind admitting that she’s going through a few things involving “the man,” and doesn’t want to throw up a bunch of sloppy posts while she’s in distress. Remember how my last blog design layout had that tagline that included “the curse of brilliance,” as one of this blogs’ topics? Right now I’m being persecuted for my intelligence and as usual I don’t like it. Times like these make me wish I were less talented and slightly feeble-minded, which I know is a bad place to be. With a bit of distance I’ll be able to explain exactly what is happening, but today is not the time. But, just because I’m going through mess doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be entertained! So howsabout some throwback posts you may have missed?

Good Hair Gone Bad: Christopher Williams – Did you guys know that Christopher Williams has made a comeback (of sorts)? Check out this post with a rather unimpressive audio clip over at Soulbounce. Like I commented, Chris Brown really is the new Christopher Williams, and he’s resurfaced just in time to let tenderoni take the crown!

The Black Sitcom and The Talent Showcase is always good for some grooves and a laugh.

You know who gets on my doggone nerves? Bokeem Woodbine.

Wow. I am so glad I don’t live in West Philly anymore. God bless that neighborhood but  forgot about incidents like this fruit truck brouhaha happening on the daily!

I just got reminded of this dude I knew who ended up in the Jet Brothers Calendar. B-b-b-but wait it gets worse.

    I already knew this about you because I do the same damn thing. That’s why I love you. I never get the “why haven’t you called me, why don’t you return my calls” guilt trip from you when I’m laying low.

    Break out your TI-82. Maybe we can collaborate on finding a formula for the curse.

    I’m thinking we should start by incorporating B=”better living through chemistry” into the equation F(x)=a^-x. F(x)= “effective power of the curse”. Unfortunately the graph of F(x)=a^-x gets infinitely close but never quite make it to zero. That’s where B comes in. Obviously I haven’t worked out the details yet. Not To go off on a Tangent(get it?), but I forgot how to use my TI. All I can do with it is play tetris.

    Best wishes in your battle with “the man”. I like your idea of giving us some of what we may have missed. Take care.

So what do you think? Please be respectful to other readers!
