Confession 1/30

Rell does his so I'll do mine!

Malcolm X is my favorite dead guy. That's no secret to those who know me. I loved his autobiography and he said some extremely poignant things. A good one? "You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong no matter who does or says it."

It's unfortunate more of them aren't more well-known. Of course his more inflammatory speeches are what people remember.

But the confession? I once liked a guy just because he kind of looked like him. Similar coloring, minus the red hair. Had the beard growthage but not up the jaw line, mostly vertical. He was even a bit militant which was quite nice. I can always get with a brother who's down for the cause! Especially if its not terribly overwhelming and oppressive i.e. the only thing ever out of his mouth. AND he found me on myspace. I knew there was a reason I had one of those pages. So all my old crushes can find me. Call me! Lol. I kid! Funniest thing the X look alike and I share? I told Stace his name-- an unusual one which means tiger in some language. She told him it meant "pig" in Ga.... and of course he believed her!!! Why was she lying though? JERK!! LMAO!! So hilarious. And I guess I don't help because I never told him it wasn't true. Hahahahahaha.

Stace is the queen of making stuff up. Freshman year she told our whole crew that her brother was her twin and of course they believed her because when you first meet someone you don't expect them to lie to you!! She's insane! I'm convinced. And I still love her so what does that make me???? Kind, right?

*why is blogger spell check still broken? I reallly don't appreciate having to do the work myself!!*

"He was even a bit militant which was quite nice."

I don't know why that's so funny. He also needed to be at least six feet tall.

Well, shucks, I can think of a lot worse reasons to like a guy or want to go out with him. I also like a guy with a cause - as long as the cause doesn't take 100% of his time.

Boy favorite dead guy.... Do I only get one??

I use Firefox with a spell checker plug in - yay!

If you can't live the life of dating your real crush Malcolm X), I say date as many as you can that LOOK like them.. Absolutely nothing wrong with that!

Rashan Jamal said...

Blogger ate my comment, and I don't remember what I said. It was something trifling though about how I dated a girl cuz she smelled like another girl I liked in high school. Oh, well. I'm sleepy now, so just forget it.

Liz Dwyer said...

LOL! I love "The Autobiography of Malcolm X". Such a good book and you feel like you really understand him after reading it.

We had a guy who looked like Malcolm X at my school and he bought the glasses and died his hair red. He wore the red, black and green and a little Africa medallion too. And then turned around and cheated on his lady with a girl who was not a Nubian queen.

Jameil said...

rj... HILARIOUS! i'm sure that's more ig than what I did!!

liz... SUCH a fab book. mad at the fake x!! down with him!!

Sparkling Red said...

I'm always willing to believe people if they come across as being smiley and friendly. I have fallen for too many lies.

What's that? "Red" also means pig in another language?

Wow, interesting. Of course I believe you! Why would you lie to me?

Sparkling Pig.

Sha Boogie said...

All kinds of hilarious! I love making up stories, its the spice of life! I tell people that my 'spinning bike scar' is a bullet wound and they belive me, because its almost a perfect circle!..lol. I'm so gangsta.

Jameil said...
