Thursday Randomness – X Games and Cheese Cake.

vertThe X games start today. cheesecake

Yep. In Los Angeles, though I think the Northwest is a much better place for them. And it’s not because I live in the Northwest either. Nope. Well, maybe a little.

Just in case you were wondering about that Saved by the Bell reunion on Jimmy Fallon…

Funny or Die strikes again! Yes, she found time to pose for People Magazine, but Tiffani Thiesen did a digital short that lets us know why she might not be getting back to that late night dude about that reunion thingy. (Side note: I watched WAY too much of this show growing up. Way too much. ) The woman can not help it if she’s busy.

And on that note, Happy National Cheesecake Day!

Black Raspberry Milkshake?

blueThis morning, I happened to come across an article about cocktails according to zodiac sign. I’m thinking, at the very least, I’ll get a new recipe out of this or something.  I’m thinking maybe some neat fruity concoction that I can work with like a margarita or some kicked up martini. Maybe even a punch or a chocolate or vanilla beverage. Non alcoholic drinks more than welcome. I wind up with a black raspberry milkshake, which reinforces my opinion of horoscopes.

What’s YOUR drink sign?

What do you think?

I don’t think I’ve written about the situation with Dr. Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr. being arrested or the charges being dropped or the cop not apologizing. You have a tired man who wants to get into his house but the lock is stuck. He tries, with the help of his driver, to push the door open, but does not succeed. Once he goes into the back of his house, he is greeted by the police. Outrage ensues and Professor Gates ends up in cuffs. Would the police have been called (or would any other part of this situation have followed) if a white professor and his driver were trying to get into the house? I would hope so, but I doubt it. Was the arrest an example of an otherwise good cop having a bad day? It’s possible, but not certain. Both of these articles from The Daily Beast bring up good points.

Tune in Thursday Night!

binaMelette, Diva in Demand and I (the Sisters with Sense) will have a special show after the documentary, Black in America 2, tomorrow evening (11/10/9/8). Will CNN paint a picture that accurately and compassionately describes the African American experience? In less than an hour (with commercials)? I have my doubts based on past experiences (MSNBC did a much better job with the two David Wilsons), but I am always up for an evening of educational entertainment followed by good conversation with my good friends.
