Trimming the Tree

I don’t know about you but I’m not a dedicated personal groomer. I floss, bathe, shave and keep myself clean and looking my best, but I’m against spending hours in the salon or makeup chair. I scorn the idea of Saturdays wasted getting mani-pedi’s, waxing, plucking or pulling hair out of everywhere. Weekends are for […]

Sucking Lemons

I recently went on a date consisting of good conversation and lemon water. For 2 hours I sat in a lounge with a sweet and sincere fella talking about the environment and the future of male and female relationships. Homey was earthy, humble and chill. I liked him well enough until my stomach started growling. […]

Nappy Natural?

When a relative of mine (you know who you are) is being mean, provoking or just being a straight up be-yatch, she likes to remind me that my newly natural hair isn’t silky. Remind me in a Denzel-Training-Day voice that Joan (i.e. Tracee Ellis Ross hair) has nothing on me. She likes to gently, not […]

Bag or Boyfriend?

Louis Vuitton is hot. Marc Jacobs is sexy and Michael Kors makes us warm and tingly. As for me, I’m a Gucci girl myself. That is, I would be, if a Gucci bag was a man and it didn’t cost more than my rent. With Valentine’s Day on our heels some single ladies might be […]

Killing Christmas

As Christmas approaches and the end of the year draws near, some us aren’t exactly in the holiday spirit.

Dating The Do

For black women, getting our hair done is a process. The undertaking can take hours and in some extreme cases, days. To tame and coerce our hair into a style that is acceptable by society’s standards requires a sacrifice of time and money. If a man, any man, plans to date a black woman he […]

Birthday Cake Blues

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEnefkpRfHE”

Operator: 911 what is your emergency? Caller: My birthday cake is on fire. Operator: Ma’am, stop calling here. Tomorrow is my birthday. When my friends asked me how I felt about yet another year added to my age, I answered: I ain’t dead yet. I didn’t say greaatttttt, like cereal box Tony the Tiger. I […]

Birthday Botox

Recently, I casually asked my dermatologist about one day getting Botox. He laughed in my face. “Go spend your money on something you need” he said and sent me on my way. Is he blind? Doesn’t he see the lines I see? Every year I write a birthday post (See Old Dog, New Tale) because […]

Valentine’s Va-Jay-Jay

Back in the day if a man loved a woman he gave her father a horse, a cow and two mules. In them days, the price of your “PRECIOUS” to quote Gollum, cost a damn sight more than some chocolates and a Hallmark card.  Men understood that for the benefit of a lady’s time he […]

Punnani Placeholder

I’m attempting to get my self-help/dating book published.  It’s curious then that when I sprinted out of work on Friday I wasn’t running to catch a hot man for a hot date but to catch the library. My dating life in New York City might seem obscene to some and downright dismal to others. How […]
