May 19: Tool in Oklahoma City

June 1 and 2: Incubus in Los Angeles

I'd like to go to one of reunion shows for The Police, but ticket prices are outragous!

i have a ticket to see The Police @ Madison Square Garden on Aug. 1st.  & yes the ticket price was OUTRAGEOUS.  but i've been waiting for this for a looooong time.

now i'm just waiting for A Tribe Called Quest.......

i am about to start the application process & i too am looking for advice on whether i should apply to p/t or f/t programs.  i have been leaning towards leaving my job & going f/t b/c if i continue to work f/t & go to school during the evenings, that will probably leave me w/about 1-2 hrs a day to be w/my son during the wk.  i'm also afraid to leave him free bet the hours that school lets out until 10 or 11 o'clock @ nite.  he's 13, so he can take care of himself, but he's 13 & i remember being very curious & experimenting w/alot of things @ during my early teens.  my son is a good kid for the most part, but i think that i would be asking for trouble if i were to leave him alone 4 evenings out of the week.

does anyone have any thoughts on which program i should choose?  if i go f/t, i'll definitely have to take out more money for loans.  if i go p/t, the loan amt will be lower, but i almost feel as if i would be paying a heavier price, time lost w/the kid. (who by the way, thinks i should go p/t.  he's afraid of me quitting my job.)

i'm glad to know that it's not just me getting older & not liking today's rap.  my son listens & he does the dances too, so i here the songs blasting from his room & he's a ham so he likes to show of the dances.  i try to find something good about these songs, the music or the words, but there's nothing.  they're not even catchy.

& the videos are horrible!

I think all the kids in the back seats of the minivan turn them off.

i guess there's no middle ground.  if you grow up hearing you're stupid all your life, you're screwed & if you grow up hearing you're special all your life you're screwed.

so basically, what i'm saying is....WE'RE ALL SCREWED!!

i know that a lot of people are on this Barack Obama kick & i for one would LOVE to see a black person be elected as president BUT...are we just fooling ourselves here???

i was in SC for 5 days.  my sister & 2 of her friends ventured out to this new club called "V" in Florence.  when we reached the club we were stopped just before the entrance by 2 white males who advised us that the club was a "members only" club that required a $240 pymt for the yr w/a $20 deposit & a 24hr waiting period.

silly me, i'm from NY so i actually thought that this was possible & asked why the HE double hockey sticks would anyone go for that.  my sis (who's lived in SC for 16 yrs now) & her friends (who were born & raised there) let me know that it's just the clubs way of saying is a WHITES ONLY club.  UNEFFING BELIVEABLE!!!!  I'm thinking this can't possibly be true.  we're in 2007, segregation doesn't exist, right?  but after hearing about the numerous clubs that have the same "members only" policy from all 3 of them & ending up a a "black club" that was pretty much dilapidated & way on the other side of town, i realized, there are still places in this country that choose to separate people.

i guess i'm a true NY'er b/c all i could think is...if you're a club owner, shouldn't your 1st concern be MAKING MONEY???? who cares whether the crowd is "mixed" - as they call it down in Florence, SC or not???


so it leads me to pose this question?  if there are still places that are "members only" places, how is it even possible to believe that a black person or even a female for that matter will be elected president in 2008.

well, i have heard of such clubs.  i think its a way to get around liquor laws.  doesnt mean this one was one of them, but they do exist.

and i personally dont think the US is ready for a minority pres yet.  still too many backwards people.

sheesh, 1/3 of all Americans believe the bible is the direct unaltered word of god!

really?  how so?
i honestly thought it was a ridiculous policy.  i didn't think it had anything to do w/all of us being black women until like i said, the 3 of them starting explaining how this was a way of excluding certain people & that it's happened @ other places where one nite they were allowed in & the following week, it was a restricted club.

i think you're right, the country's not ready.  so what's w/all of the Obama hype?  are white people afraid of being labeled racist if they believe the same?  b/c they're not.
