True Lies ~ Alternative Status ~ Old Folks' Tales

Hey guys

How are you preparing for the end of the year? Gone shopping? Making those ridiculous New Year resolutions yet?? Lol, have fun with that!!

Aloted tagged me in the True Lies Meme that is currently going around blogville :) and as much as I love Memes!, I will not participate in this one as part of my New Year's Resolution is to Never Tell Another Lie :) :) :) so I am seizing this opportunity and I am not going to tell a lie even if it comes in the form of a meme; (i love memes - who came up with the word 'Meme'? what does it mean?) You will not be reading no secrets or lies from meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.deal with it people. ha ha ha ha ha. At least I have a 2-week headstart on my list :)

Alternative Facebook Status

So since I am dedicated to an event on facebook, my status is permanently taken up by Make It Big! Competition, I have missed updating my status on facebook so I decided to 'let out' my feelings on my dear blog :) Lol. It's my blog I will do as I please!!!!!

1. Mimi wants to go home
2. Can't believe how this guy next to me is staring at my PC screen!!!
3. Yayyyyyyyyy! Alexander!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4. LOL!! @ Bush :D somehow I feel sorry for him
5. Mimi is dreaming of great xmas food
6. Mimi has had her fill of mince pies!!!!!!!!!!!
7. Mimi had the MOST FULFILLING DAY TODAY!!!



I went volunteering at an old people's home recently (hence my status number 7) and it was so much fun sitting around with old folks, hearing their experiences, travel tales and other stories. One woman asked me, 'are you married?' and I smiled and said, 'not yet'. And she said to me 'If you find man good, marry, If man no good, no marry' LOL , sounds like 'DUH woman' but I guess she just felt impelled to pass on this good advice to me and she meant it so I am guessing she has seen her fair share of 'man no good'. I met another man who had travelled the whole world!!!! And he said Japan was the best and most beautiful city :) So I guess that's moved up on my list now.


When my group and I finished after an exciting day, (tried to set up our Wii for them too LOL! but there was no sound so we had to dump the idea but we are going back, even if it's just for the Wii!!!!), my Polish friend said to me, 'when you look at these people, you realize that deadlines and all our busyness in life sometimes don't matter when at the end, what you do is sit with friends, share stories and eat mince pie without worrying about gaining weight, and fall asleep in the middle of a boring story without being called rude!' :) She had a point! Although I will be up and running in my later years though!!! I don't intend to sit around and eat mince pies all day!! Although they taste yummy :) I love Xmas food (well I love food lol) and I am looking forward to lots and lots of good food this Xmas. Sigh.

Hi Mimi,
This is Mista Jaycee. You visited my blog and asked how'd I got my name?
Well, the J is for my first name Jassonne or Jassonn. Pronounced Jay-Song drop the G sound. The C is for Charles my middle name. I have produced and performed poetry and music for over twenty years as Mista Jaycee, Jaycee the Poet, and That Lunatic Mista Jaycee. My Wife insisted I drop Lunatic from my moniker. Words have Power you know. I am known under these names Nationally as I have performed with and know some people famous people. I was thrilled when I discovered Sista Jaycee and that she was also a writer. The Mista is a funky spelling I flipped after I heard Mister Cee, Big Daddy Kane's DJ. I read Sista Jaycee's blog regularly and thankfully no one will ever confuse us. I put in alot of work to hold my names.
Stop by and make yourself at home.
Mista Jaycee the Poet
