Operation: Infiltrate the Clique

Parker is this one guy around my age who goes to a sister church of ours in town.

He's  about 5'11, 215lbs, dark skinned, cute smile, STUPID PHAT ass, and on top of that, he's a fem guy that can totally pass for masculine when he wants to.

Plus he can sing. No, actually, Parker can SANG!!! 

Just my type of guy.

But I've only ever thought of Parker as a brother; he's hot, but I'm not sexually attracted to him. Like how I wasn't attracted to Matt.

We get along well; never had any fall-outs or anything; he's a real nice person.

While other dudes would strike up conversations about last night's football game, Parker and I would dish on the goings-on of America's Next Top Model, who had the best dress on Project Runway, etc. We'd grin at each other when a fine brother walked in the room, we'd catch each other checking niggas out as they walked past, stuff like that.

It was this unspoken "thing" we've always had.

Recently, a female friend and I were at a club doing Karaoke.

When we first walked in, Parker was on stage singing "Weak" by SWV (click here) with two of the 5 dudes in his clique I saw sitting in one of the booths.

Now mind you, I had peeped one of his friends the moment I first walked in there but he was standing up at the bar alone so I didn't know who he was there with until I saw him come sit with us.

He kinda looked like Corbin Bleu, but thicker. Nice complexion, but up close, he had a few acne scars or whatever. But who doesn't? (I'll refer to him as Corbin, k?)

It had been a while since we'd last seen each other so Parker and I had a lot to catch up on. And the conversation just flowed.

After about 10 minutes or so of us catching up, I realized two things:

1. The only two people at this table talking are Parker and I. Everyone else is having trouble minding their damn  beeswax. Not that we were discussing anything top secret. But damn.

2. This rude ass nigga who I'm guessing is Parker's boo, came over there and started running his fingers up and down the buttons on Parker's shirt. Parker didn't introduce us, so I acted like the nigga wasn't even there.

Destiny was on my side that night.
Corbin went on stage to sing "The Closer I Get To You" by Beyonce and Luther Vandross (click here). The dude who was supposed to sing with Corbin wasn't familiar with the lyrics. They were gonna just cut the song about halfway through but me, in true Super Save-A-Hoe fashion, hopped my happy ass on stage.

After that, the night was set. Everyone buddied up and did duets all night. It was a lot of fun and we all made plans to meet up and do it more often. Exchanging Facebooks and such, the bar closed down.

Parker gave me his new number and we've been texting since then.

Me: "Next time all of ya'll go out, let me know. I'm always looking to hang".

Parker: "Okay, lol. We're supposed to be going to Rumors next Thursday night. They're having a Pride party, I think you'd like it there".

Me: "I like it anywhere where Corbin is wink wink... You need to put in a word for me or something..."

Parker: "Boy u a fool! I'll see what he say tho. He usually has a stank attitude towards newbies but ya'll seemed to hit it off real good. I never pegged you for the Fem type".

Me: "Yeah nigga, I'm a rare breed. Fems are like my kryptonite. Don't judge me. -__-".

Parker: "Lmao. Ok well I'll hit you up n let u know".

Irons in the Fire

I love it when I come across a piece of music that sweeps me away before I know it.

Irons in the Fire by Tina Marie (Click Here)

Played randomly on my Pandora shuffle. At first, I was going to skip it. But I had exceeded the stupid limit they put on how many songs you can skip in an hour or whatever.

As the song began to play, the first thing that caught me was the beautiful prelude.

Next, hearing my newfound girl Tina Marie, that was a refreshing surprise.

The music continued to play.

Before I had realized it, I had paused my Skyrim game and just sat there.

Soaking in the lyrics. (would you judge me if I told you I got a lil lump in my throat too?)


This song is absolutely dreamy...

According to the phrase "Irons in the Fire" is an Idiom for a person who has several things working to their advantage at the same time.

Here are the lyrics:

People say I've got my hands in too many things
Keeping time with paupers just as well as kings
I toss my hat up to the silver sky
And then I sigh
Look at all the blessings in my life
Here I am your Piscean holocaust
Born in Venice Harlem with some sweet and sour sauce
I close my eyes and still somehow I feel
You're here with me
And you are such a blessing in my life
Here I am, I'm just a fragment of my God
Heavenly father, hear me
Sometimes life gets so hard
With you as my desire
Spirit's gonna build me higher
I've got to keep my irons in the fire
Got to keep my irons in the fire
Enjoy the pics!

(do you like the new background pic? I think it's Abso-Fucking-Lutely fabulous, but that's just me...)
