My Funny Valentine

I'm taking this time to talk a little bit about the man I married. I love him, he loves me, we're married. We've been up, we've been down, we're still married. He's pushed, i've pulled, we snapped back to the middle and kept it moving. I was 15, he was 18 and we met. I was 16, he was 19, we were parents.

My husband's a complicated man. He's a stone face with a heart of gold. People think he's this mean bear of a man when in all actuality he's very kind. I don't mean to let his secret out but it's true. He's the type of person you want in your corner. I'm definitely glad he's in mine.

We've had our moments but the love has always been there. I've been in love with him since I was 15 years old. I remember the day we met like it was yesterday. We were so young. I never would have thought we'd still be together.

I'm not going to write a long, drawn out post. That's not our style. I just wanted to shout out the man that I married January 13, 1989.

Random Entertainment Thoughts

1. Why is it that Britney Spears can get strung out on drugs, beat paparazzi with umbrellas, neglect her children, shave her head, and just go plain crazy and still have a career but Janet Jackson shows one boob and her career is over?

2. Did Usher mess up his album sales by releasing, "Love in the Club," as his first single? We all know he's married with a kid. Who is he screwing in the club? Grow up man. The next two singles were so much more mature.

3. R&B artists really need to get their act together. I'm feeling British artists like Adele and Leona Lewis.

4. Country music is the truth. Their fans do not accept smoke and mirrors and choreography that covers up the fact that someone cannot sing. You have to be able to do the damned thing to be a country artist. I'm going to look up some Sugarland songs. The woman in that group can sing her ass off.

5. Lil Wayne is coming out with a rock album. I like it. I'm into anyone who tries to take their music in different directions. There's nothing worse than artists who rap and sing about the same stuff all the time. Show some growth.

6. Jazmine Sullivan's, "Lions, and Tigers, and Bears," is my favorite song right now. I actually love her album.

7. I heard a song by Mary Mary called, "The God in Me," on the radio the other day and I didn't know it was a gospel song until it got to the chorus.

8. Jennifer Hudson made me cry when she performed at the Grammy's.

9. I need a serious Beyonce break.

10. The Oscars are in two weeks. I'm only watching to see if Taraji P. Henson or Viola Davis wins best supporting actress. I don't really give a damn about the rest of it.

11. The whole Chris Brown/Rihanna thing is breaking my heart. They're so young.

12. I heard about a New Edition concert in New Jersey on the radio the other day. The only ones performing are Ralph, Bobby, and Johnny. What the hell?

13. Do people still go to see those Madea movies? Are they funny or coonish? What about the Browns? House of Payne?

14. Do I feel the same way about Oprah that I use to? I'm not so sure.

15. Is there a difference between rap and hip hop. I think so.

16. Do ladies still love cool James?

17. Why does 50 dumb himself down? He's obviously a smart guy.

18. Jay Z and Beyonce, Will and Jada, Angelina and Brad. Gotta love a good power couple.

19. Speaking of Beyonce, has her career destroyed any chances her sister Solange, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams have of being successful?

20. Movies are coming out on dvd so fast now that it almost makes no sense to go to the theater.
