    I have a lot to say & ask. we have much in common. Will you be at the blogger meetup?

    *Screaming I Hate SPAMMERS invading my friends mail boxes*

    Your 101 list rock! I won't tell you that I've had a 100 list (nor that I've actually started blogging back in February and deleted about three or four blogs...issues?) but ended up deleteing because, like you, I was so naked. I put her to bed with clothes on. We have some things in common I see. Congrats on the giving up the foul/meat/poultry thing. I've not eaten any for two and a half-years. Ppl keep asking me to post the whys. Maybe I will.


    PS Some of your past post/peotry is da bomb! Keep it coming. I would love to be free and flow enough to write poetry. But, alas, roses are red violets ... you know the elementary rest.

    I have a few dear friends from BB, around the same cohert (age). I just wonder if you know them? Granted they moved to Florida and then consequently to Hot-lanta, but somehow this world seems a lot smaller than on paper. E'rybody know e'rybody. If you want names and schools and what not just let me know. I ain't trying to blow your mysterious ID cover. BTW, nice legs and eyes Brroklyn Babe!

  • At 30/8/05 1:03 PM, Blogger Luke Cage said…

(yummmeee) I admire your non-tv fortitude. God bless your forgiveness, that's cool. I too would die without humor. P.S. you left one thing off of your list. You're da Bomb! Nice job BB.
