El Aye

Song of the day- "Step it up" by Little Brother from the album "Get Back"-"cause once they get grown/these ladies ain't impressed by Applebees no mo'/Gotta dig a little deeper for that PF change/for PF Chang's/And if you can't afford it/You can still do thangs to show you ain't on no dumb shit/Take her to a gallery, museum or some shit"

So, I'm back from LA/Long Beach. My trip was, to say the least, highly enjoyable. All avenues of the trip were just right and I really needed it. I really don't know where to start with the trip.

Friday_ - Venice Beach, shopped a little bit, ate at Johnny Rockets. Ended up going out to a club that night called "day after". To be honest, I wasn't really impressed with the spot. Maybe its the fact that I had to wait in line for so long, or the fact that once I actually got in the spot, it wasn't really that great. "Bones" from "I love New York 2" was on the mic, and he sounds just like he looks LOL. Ended his rants and raves of "where all my ladies and players at.. " with "VOTE FOR OBAMA 08!" LOL. Willie from "college hill in the bahamas" was there too with his weak afro.. he couldnt even get in HAHAHA.. That made me laugh. I was also weak at the ladies that cut in front of us. It was a group of 5 of em, not great looking and a little sloppy on the clothing tip, not to mention ones heels were scuffed up something tough( tacky broad). Security asked them who they were here with, the whole thing. He says hold, comes back and is like "sorry ladies that party is not here with this event, please step out of line.. PLEASE STEP OUT OF LINE..." Of course the embarrassed looks came up, and the "why nots" happened, as well as the snickers from all 1 million people in line lol. ( memba that Lisa LOL). Ended the night with a drunken hot dog from the Latino vendor on the sidewalk, they go so hard....

Big shoutout to my sister for not meeting up with her brother the whole time I was out there, and not allowing me to stay at ya crib after giving me permission to stay there when you were gonna be outta town. All because ya roommate had family coming in. Whats that have to do with YOUR room?.. but yea, thanks..

Saturday- relaxed in the morning, hung out all during the day. Went and had a good lunch, did a little bit of shopping ( got a tie and some slacks.. cleeaaaaaan), and basically just relaxed all day. Saw the beach and the area where the long beach grand prix is (Ima see if pop wants to go this year)

Sunday- the day.. of all days.. started Sunday out by just relaxing, watching some tube. Got up late and grabbed a bite to eat, some pizza from the hut. The girl who worked there was a sucka though. On some real ish. How you gonna tell someone you put ranch in the bag when I know you didnt!.. I digress.. anyways, back to the day. So, as some may know, I have a huge liking to Teedra Moses. Her music in itself is something special, and I get so tired everytime I mention her and someone says "whos Teedra Moses?".. Its like the most genuine artists just don't get the recognized. Well Teedra was in Pasadena for a concert/party, which actually ended up just turning into a party for her sisters birthday. I thought it was gonna be a concert, but instead it was just a party with Teedra only singing "happy birthday".. still didnt care. I saw her walk in the venue ("the vault"), and I swear I was probably the only one who noticed it was her. Like some lil schoolboy, I got all nervous and shit, pushin my cuzzo talkinbout, "look, look!"..

So I finally built up the gall to go say hi to this woman who's music has soothed ma soul for going on 4 years now, and of course, like I knew she would... she was cordial. And upbeat.

me : Hey Miss Moses, just wanted to tell u I love ya work and everything ya put into, much love to ya ma...

Teedra: thank you baby, I appreciate that sooo much! (hug)..



The night pushed on, and of course, we talked more. I danced wit Teedra, the whole time im dancin im thinkin "im really ova here giggin wit Teedra Moses".. I was starstruck like a mufucka. I aint even gon lie. Ova here dancin with a woman I been crushin on for a while. She introduced me and my cuzzo to her sister, of whose birthday it was, and we were all in convo like we was family.
The night ended with a hug and some contacts exchanged.. Im downplayin this situation on this blog, though on my inside parts, im spinnin and still cant quite comprehend... now all I gotta do is kikit with Badu and Keys.. and I will be set..

Ok... ya friday night was hilarious... I love johnny rockets... but the tacky broads... was hilarious...

yeah... ya sis did you dead wrong...but its fam

and your sunday.. oh how I wish I was there... i'm a little jealous too... if I had to have a crush on a female... it would definitely be teedra so I feel you. She is the most sweetest genuine person... glad you had a good time... but I still got one up on her... because I've seen her in concert twice. True getting to dance with her and talk has its rewards... but seeing her in concert is the bizness!

WOW @ your weekend. Sounds like you had a great time overall. Glad you enjoyed your time in the city of lost angels.

You'll have to forgive me for being the one million and one person not knowing who that young lady is. But I am going to make a note to myself to check her out.

lol @ Dejanae's comment about noticing the tacky chick's scuffy shoes. Karma is something else, ain't it? You call it how you see it, and that is alright with me.

PrettyBlack said...

That's hilarious cuzz. Big Sis huh? We know that story. As for the scuffed up shoes..a real man notices shit like that. You are going to end up with a good wife.

I was on my way out the other day and looked at the heel of my shoes while I was lotioning my gogs and noticed they were scuffed...I immediately picked them bitches up, poured some liquor out for 'em and threw them dead homies in the ga-bage! RIP they seen me through two good summers.

Sounds like you had fun tho' I'm glad of that.

Monie said...

This sounds like a fun weekend. Teedra is the truth. I got hip to her a few years ago. I still bump her CD. Oh Swag with the brass balls...good job on actually going up to her. Shit paid off. LOL!
