Old School Blogging: The ABCs of Me


This is another OSB  from the fabulous Elaine from The Miss Elaineous Life. This is actually a draft of it that I never finished so while looking for some fresh ideas, I found it and finished it up.Enjoy!


Anyway, here are MY own ABCs! Link up yours below!

A- Age: 27

B-Biggest Fear: The cheesy 80s movie, Pumpkinhead…something about that monster thing freaks me out!

C- Current Time: 7;58pm, Thursday

D- Drink Last Had: Non alcoholic- Ssips strawberry kiwi juice Alcoholic- Sweet Bitch moscato

E- Easiest Person To Talk to: Next to God,my friend Bart

F- Favorite Song: That’s constantly changing from one Michael Jackson song to another because I’m always discovering old songs that I didn’t know and fall in love with them. Right now, my fave song is Get On The Floor from the Off The Wall album

G- Grossest Memory: When Amani was about 6 months old, she was constipated(yes,this is a poop story) and we didn’t know what to give her to ease her discomfort(when babies are that young you can’t give them anything,which sucks). My mom,who is a retired home health aide, came up with an idea. She had me bring Amani to her and take off her diaper. I didn’t know what she was going to do but I was desperate. She proceeded to put.on.a rubber glove, shove her gloved finger into a jar of Vaseline…and then put her finger in Amani’s butt. What followed her finger out was a HUGE pile of poop rocks. I was stunned,grateful,and then disgusted. My mom was my hero that day…probably Amani’s too.

H- Hometown: Queens,NYC. Born and raised in a few of the boroughs in NYC but all the significant events in my life happened in Queens.

I- In love with: Denzel Washington, Michael Jackson,corn starch(don’t ask),books,and coffee
