The Good Samaritan

Posted in Friends, Hotties, Life at 8:09 am by Faith

For the most part, I like to think that I’m a good friend. If I’m able to help someone when they’re in a tight position, it makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something. I was enjoying a late lunch with Kitrah the other day when I received a phone call from Hip-Hop Mama. I didn’t think it was anything important, as I had JUST gotten off the phone with her before I went out with Kitrah, so I let her go to voice-mail. After another frantic phone call and a text, I astutely realized that something was up. She informed me that she had a flat tire and needed help getting her child from school.

So, I rushed down, feeling bad that I let her go to voice mail twice. We ran to the school and got her child before I took Hip-Hop Mama back to her car with the flat tire. I have many brothers. I know how to change a flat. So when I saw Hip-Hop Mama struggling with her spare tire, trying to do everything so she didn’t break a nail, I knew an intervention was necessary:

Faith: No, no. That’s NOT how you change a flat. Let me do it for you. (takes over from here– gets the spare tire out, gets the jack out, assembles the jack, begins to try and take off the lug nuts… and cannot get them off. They’ve been put on too tight. Continues struggling with the lug nuts.)
Man! They put these lug nuts on TIGHT anymore…

(Cute guy happens by, notices Faith struggling with the lug nuts and ambles over)

Cute guy: Hey, they put those on way too tight in garages. Let me get it for you. (proceeds to loosen the lug nuts, then jacked up Hip-Hop Mama’s car and changes the tire himself.)

Faith: (whispers to Hip-Hop Mama) Now THAT’S how you change a tire!

Hump Day Hottie: The Hug-it-Out Edition

Posted in Hotties, Hump Day Hotties, Must See TV, Obsessions at 8:30 am by Faith

In keeping with my Entourage theme of the last few days, I thought I would direct your attention to the bevy of babes that appear on this show. I am a firm believer that Entourage was built on the same principles that apply to boy bands– there’s a little something-something for everyone.

This theory was well-demonstrated by Hip-Hop Mama and myself the other night:

Hip-Hop Mama: Ooh, I would love to date a guy like Turtle. He’s so cute.
Faith: (chuckling) Yeah, that doesn’t shock me. He’s so your type it’s not even funny.
Hip-Hop Mama: What, you don’t think he’s cute?
Faith: Nope. Not so much.
Hip-Hop Mama: Well, who do YOU think is the cutest one on the show?
Faith: (laughing) You’re the one who claims that you’re my best friend… the one who knows me the best. YOU tell ME.
Hip-Hop Mama: (without skipping a beat) Kevin Connolly.

Was she right? Is my type of guy the quiet, sensitive, semi-sarcastic? Without further introduction, I present to this weeks’ Hump Day Hottie:


Yep. It’s true what they say. Best friends really DO know everything about each other…

New Addiction

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Love, Must See TV, Obsessions at 2:19 pm by Faith

To I-66 and all you other yahoos who told me I’d like Entourage:



Seriously… Bite me. I didn’t think it was possible to get so incredibly hooked on a television show. This is how it went down:

Hip-Hop Mama and I were at the local video store. I got all excited because they had the first disc of the second season of Entourage in stock (which is impossible to find in my town– I’ve been looking for WEEKS.) Anyway, Hip-Hop Mama was lukewarm to the idea. I had to talk her into it, basically saying, “Hey, if the show sucks, it’s only 25 minutes and we’ll bring the disc back and get something else.”

Yeah. That didn’t so much happen. Within the first 30 seconds of the show, Hip-Hop Mama was HOWLING. The person who didn’t think the show was that great, actually, was me. Then 45 seconds later, I’m shooting Pepsi out of my nose because I was unfortunate enough to take a drink and start laughing hysterically.

So… on behalf of my nose, I’m officially pissed at all of you who recommended this brilliant television show to me.

What do you say? Hug it out?

The Art of Whoring– Part II

Out of College Town today. I’m in the middle of freaking NOWHERE! On a job interview… in the middle of freaking NOWHERE!

The fun resumes tomorrow.

To the person who got to my site by entering “how to make my fiance get dirty in bed,”…. ask them. Don’t look on a freaking website. That’s just strange. And silly. And kinda scary.

I feel for your fiance.

The Art of Whoring Oneself…

Posted in Life, Random, Work at 3:23 pm by Faith

Sorry for the delay in posts these last couple of days. I’ve been on the job hunt. I’ve had a couple of second interviews with some pretty interesting offices. I get the impression that they’re all looking for someone enthusiastic and spunky. I’m hoping that I’m coming across as that person.

Don’t want to say too much out of fear I’ll jinx it. If anything concrete comes in, I’ll keep you posted.

Hump Day Hottie!

Posted in Hotties, Hump Day Hotties at 4:32 pm by Faith

Okay, so I’m a day late… but I’ve been busy! Not too busy to forget about who this week’s hump day hottie is. This man has been on my “hottie” list for as long as I can remember. I think that at times he’s got some pretty questionable taste in women, but I think that’s just because he hasn’t found Faith yet. (hee hee hee.) He’s the babe-a-licous Nick Lachey.


Yeah, I’ll take “what’s left of him,” …happily.
