One of the best books I ever read was Diana Ackerman’s “A Natural History of the Senses.” I can’t recommend it highly enough. Per that last tile about smell being strongly associated with memory.

I’ve always been sensitive to scents; emotionally they wear me out…constantly assailed by memories. So I try to keep scents around me to a minimum…for my sanity. I tried to explain this to my partner and he looked at me as if I’d sprouted two heads.

The last one, I can attest to. Sometimes I will get a whiff of something and it will take me back to when I was like 5 or 6 years old or remind me of my life back in Guyana, or some obscure memory. It’s strange but very interesting, at the same time.

Lol! Yesterday I met this lovely Guyanese gentleman. I picked up the faint accent and asked him if he was Jamaican and then he got prickly. Bajan? Faint bristle. Trinny? At that point he hurriedly said Guyana. I could tell he was about to add, I’m sure you don’t know where that is. I had to name check the London Guyanese mafia to get back into good graces lol! After that we spent 15 minutes shooting politics; Obamas, racism, Henry Louis Gates and who was that pastor again at POYUS Obama’s 1st inagauration….the one who went; If you’re white, you alright; if you’re brown, stay around and if you’re black stand back? Raised the ire of white folk he did. Anyway, I had to hurry up and split cause my daughter was giving me the evil eye. But tell you what, I still can’t distinguish the Guyanese accent from the Bajan accent… I need to listen to both ends more. Wish me luck.

Jeremiah Wright, that’s the pastor’s name. Lol, most people don’t know where Guyana is so, he would’ve assumed you didn’t know. I can’t fault you for not being able to tell the difference, it’s not easy. I think you’ll get it down soon enough. Jamaican is the easiest, for obvious reasons, they’re the go-to Caribbean accent. Technically, we’re not in the Caribbean but there’s something about the English speaking countries near the Caribbean(Guyana, Belize) that melded into the culture. Africans and indentured servants were shipped out to those parts so it makes sense that we all have a similar culture. Lol @ your daughter giving you the evil eye. Parents do this all the time, chat with people for ages and the kid is like “omg can we PLEASE leave now?” Haha. Guyanese people are somewhat hard to find on my end, on the EC, loads and loads of them. Love my people but I’m glad I don’t live on that end, everyone’s in everyone else’s business. Lmao. No thanks. 😉

'Fallingwater' Frank Lloyd Wright. Architectural genius.

Here are several of his homes in LA, one is now a museum in the Barnsdall Art Park. The Hollyhock House. I’ve been there many times.

Gah! You’ve been to see his work? You luck so and so. What are you a budding architect? Last time I was in PA I really wanted to go up to Pittsburgh to check this one- Fallingwater,  but my family was like…er…at your own leisure. see this one’ Falling water. I love the Johnson Wax HQ as well. 

Lol, I am not, but I appreciate art, also architecture…but for aesthetics. Planning to go to the Getty Villa museum again soon in Malibu, it’s beautiful up there, with the art, architecture, and scenery. I know nothing really about architecture. If you take a trip to LA, I think there would be a lot to see that would be interest you. I don’t think living here is exciting as tourists believe it is, unless they’re into the Hollywood scene but it’s a place to be visited at least once. There’s the bustle here, terrible traffic at times, but we have access to many things and the vibe is pretty relaxed. Healthy eating, healthy living, beach life, sunshine on most days. Yeah, people hate Californians.😌

Lol! I need to come over like yesterday. I was so gutted when my BFF moved East, but she’s promised to take me out there, she’s got a vast network, so board shouldn’t be an issue. My daughter is  keen to study over there- the climate agrees with her skin…or rather the climate on the East Coast did, so we’re thinking sun through out the year…Cali baby.Tthe Uni global rankings are quite encouraging.

Where does she want to go? UCLA? Stanford? USC? Pepperdine? I have friends and family friends who are currently at those schools. Maybe she’s got her eye on a different school? You definitely should check Cali out. How do you feel about her moving abroad?

So the cheapest Maxwell tickets for his Toronto show are $209. Yes you read the right. I don’t know why he’s trying to hurt me like this. Like literally, I’m crushed by this. If…

Damn, that sucks for the OP. I saw him for around $40 at the Hollywood Bowl. But that was 4 years ago. He is AH-MAY-ZING live, so so good. I’ll always remember that night. Still contemplating seeing him in June or whenever.

He’s actually worth the $200 bucks but damn, times is hard. 😐

Maxwell is a class act, there are very few artists outside of the Jazz genre or ‘World Music’ genre (whatever that means) and Maxwell is one of them but  £125?Bwahahaha. 8 words- A fool and his money are soon parted.

Lol. It’s about the experience. And no, I’ve never paid that much to see anyone. I might, depending on who it is but maybe I won’t. Most I’ve paid is about $110 and that was to see The Weeknd, that was from a third party seller. It was a really good seat, there were a couple thousand people sitting behind me. ZERO regrets going to that show, I went by myself too(first time ever) and it was well worth it for me.

Gurl, I’m all about experience and all and by that I mean going backstage and meeting the artist-yes I’m shameless like that. I’ve met all my faves- pictures, CDs signed, traded ancedotes the works. And that is minus surrendering (in money terms) a terms worth of my daughter’s violin lessons.  For £125 I’d expect much more than selected  songs from his discography…some dry humping and serious groping would please plenty. What?Dontcha be lookin’ at me like that,we talkin’ Maxwell hurr.

Hahahaha, I’m not looking at you any kinda way, girl, cause I feel you. Women go crazy for the man, omg. The ladies behind us at the show were tipsy and yelling every 5 seconds, throughout the entire show, “I love you Maxxxxxwelllll”. It was hilarious. He’s raunchy, and women would throw their panties at him, and he picked them up too. Lol. Yeah, you should meet him, he seems like a nice guy and his set was like 1 hour 45 mins, and before that Common opened for him and his set was 45 mins. They also had Chrissette Michele opening but we got there a little late so we missed her. Overall, an awesome show. Good for you getting to meet the artists and go backstage, once in a lifetime type stuff. 👍👍

You missed Chrissette Michelle why?

Sorry, I draw a line at throwing knickers, so cliched.

Cause we were late, the area gets crazy when there’s a concert. So unless you want to pay 30-40$ for parking, you’re going to park 10 mins away, pay $5-6 at the end of night, and walk up to the Bowl. Heard her when we were getting our tickets scanned and purses checked but by the time we were finding our seats, she’d left the stage. Since they had two opening acts, they started the show earlier than they said they would. It happens. *shrug*

And throwing panties….I would never. What a waste anyway, lol.

Companies affiliated with beauty brand Carol’s Daughter filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Thursday.

CD Stores LLC, formerly known as Carol’s Daughter Stores LLC, filed its Chapter 11 petition with the Manhattan bankruptcy court. Court papers show that CD Stores is…

I didn’t even see your post til now. You said it all, especially in the last statement.

Er…said what now? 

Ugh,sometimes tumblr is such a pain. I responded to this post:

"I wonder what the story is.The company was set up 20 yrs ago, seems like it really thrived and then somewhere along the way along came a private equity company and now it’s going burst? Hhmm. Seems like someone lost touch with her core base, over expanded and the rest is history."

What wow, I thought they were doing well partnering with QVC and being in most High end stores.

I know, Sephora and all. But whenever I would go in and see the products, they really looked like they were just languishing on the shelves, always fully stocked. They were no longer hot items. Shame.
