The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
We wanted to rally for sanity.

When I first mentioned it 3 weeks ago both Justin and Dany were all for going to the Rally for Sanity. But as the event approached and logistics reared its ugly head, enthusiasm wore off. We've all been working insane hours at work and the thought of having to get up between 4 and 5 in the morning did not fire the base.

Is this sanity or insanity? Ebony on how sometimes it's really convenient to be black:

I was on the F reading a textbook on my way to work and this group of about six girls were singing. It wasn't bad at first but they kept getting louder and louder until I had to say, "Yo! Can you keep it down over there?!"

It got real quiet until one of them said, "I'm not letting her scare me!" and started singing. Until her friend pulled her coat, "Sshhhh! Do you wanna get jumped!"

There were six of them and they were afraid that I was going to jump them. I got to read in peace for the rest of the train ride. Sometimes it's good to be black.


For those who don't know, Ebony is 5'2" and about 115lbs soaking wet.

Well, she does have that tattoo, and she could have a sharpened screwdriver in her pocket of something. She's danger all the way around.

I'm not mentioning how that last line you're inviting people to picture your baby girl in a wet t-shirt contest. Not mentioning it at all.

Anyone stupid and clueless enough to sing really loudly in a public place where they might, oh, I dunno, annoy other people would most likely be stupid and clueless enough to have idiotic racial/cultural preconceptions.
