Movie Review: Crazy Stupid Love

How do you know when to fight for someone or when you should just accept their break up wishes and move on? As humans we often don't know the difference between an issue we can work on and a true deal breaker. By that I mean you can't force or expect people to change, but sometimes they are willing to work with you. Other times you may realize some things are just non issues.
In Crazy Stupid Love Julianne Moore stars as Emily. In the beginning of the movie she asks her husband Cal (Steve Carell) for a divorce. Instead of fighting for her he literally rolls over. They go through the movie dealing with their new status and trying to continue to raise their kids.
We all know how romantic comedies end, but just to cover my behind SPOILER ALERT they get back together, and when they do Julianne points out that he didn't fight for her. This was the reason for the initial paragraph of course.
Steve Carell immediately started moping when everything fell apart. Then he met Jacob ( Ryan Gosling) who essentially helped him get his swagger back. These are some of the funniest parts of the movie - mainly because we all know Carell plays the uncool dude trying too hard to be hip really well. Gosling takes him under his wing and adores him how to dress and approach women.
The movie is really funny and the scenes between Gosling and Carell are classic. There is a little more to it though. The movie also has some tender life lessons with the kids love interests of their own and Cal and Emily's relationship. This movie is definitely recommended for any and probably ok for older kids to see as well.

What's Up Doc? Stay Healthy Tip

So you stayed outside in the heat, hung out in the park, ran on the beach, challenged the kids with some games AND today you have lost your mojo... Fear Not! You are probably a little dehydrated. You will need to replenish with water and oral electrolytes (Gatorade). In addition to that, make sure to avoid caffeine and take some ibuprofen or acetamenophen for the aches. Have A Healthy Day!

My Dilemma: Natural Hair Care vs. Body

Hello to all my Real Women,
As many of you know, one of the latest trends among African-American women is to “go natural”…free ourselves from the relaxer.  Well, last year I took the plunge and thought I would try it again.  The past two times that I have tried it, I’ve only made it about nine months, but I kept hearing my friends and family say “after you make it past the first year, things get better…just stick it out”.  I’m proud to say that I did it, and I am approaching my one year anniversary of the date of my last relaxer, August 29th!  This date is referred by some refer as their Independence Day, but unfortunately I’m not feeling so free.  As a woman that enjoys wearing my hair straight, and working out, instead I have found this new hair to be a real challenge.  You will find me most days chilling in my pony tail with my edges slicked back.  Y’all know how we have to wet our hair, apply the gel on the edges and use your husband’s brush to brush it back (and hope he doesn’t realize you got gel all in his brush…tee hee hee).  Some days when your hair is really resistant, you might even have to use a final step and tie it down with a scarf for a while before you go to work.  I guess I still haven’t figured out the right way to manage my new natural roots.  Don’t let me “get my hair did” and the stylist is able to get it really straight at the root.  I won’t see the inside of a gym for a week! Why must I choose between my hair and my body?  Why can’t those of us that don’t have “good hair” have it all too?  This is a really frustrating subject for me, so I would like to hear from you.  Have you decided to “go natural”?  How do you wear your hair?  If you wear it straight, what’s your best tip or trick for managing your hair?
Can’t wait to hear from you ladies!

Stop Playing Politics With Me!

This is an open letter to anyone that is an elected politician that is currently involved in the debt ceiling negotiations: STOP PLAYING POLITICS WITH ME!!!  I am taking this personal at this point. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of this bullshit. I am sorry for my lack of tact but where I come from; you call a spade a spade and bullshit is exactly what is going on in Washington. When was the last time you saw a group of adults that are “supposedly” working toward one common goal that could not agree on anything? You elected officials are coming across to the American people and the rest of the world for that matter as a JOKE! In reality, the longer these “negotiations” are drawn out, your true character shows.

I am sure that I am not the only one that sees what is happening here. We have an election year coming up so the elected officials are more concerned about being re-elected than they are about the American people as a whole. In other words, they want to make sure they are well positioned for their next election campaign and who really cares what happens to the American people. I find it extremely difficult at this point to think anything else. You have people walking out of meetings like spoiled brats. You have name calling and finger pointing like 10 year olds. Basically, everything they are doing is the same shit you raise kids not to do. I am beginning to wonder if any of the main people in these negotiations have had any home training at all. I am at the point that I feel the American people should be able to have a seat at the table because the people in the House and Senate that represent us are on some other shit right now.

I would like for the negotiations to be streamed live. We can see a full murder trial on television these days and interrupt any other type of programming when it is requested, so this request is not difficult. No offense to you politicians but I don’t really care to hear your press conferences that point the finger at the other party. Instead, I would like to see for myself what is really being said in the room. Why? Because as the old saying goes, you know a politician is lying if his lips are moving.

Friends With Benefits

I have said it before and I'll say it again, Justin Timberlake is a funny funny dude. This movie it's no exception to the rule. I should point out that "Jackie Burkhart" (Kunis' debut role on That 70's Show) grew up y'all and it works for her!

Timberlake stars as Dylan Harper, an art director for an internet blog based out of LA. Mila Kunis stars as Jamie, a head hunter who not only recruits Dylan to a job in New York, she then convinces him to make the move to New York. A friendship blossoms between the two and the chemistry is obvious. Eventually, they develop one of those infamous "we will just have no strings sex with no feelings" plans that can't possibly work in a romantic comedy such as this one. We all know going in that the couple ends up together. After all, it is a romantic comedy folks.

What makes this movie so good is not the basic plot. It's the ride to get from strangers, to friends, to bed buddies, and finally the obligatory boo-ing up at the end. One could even call it a more modern day When Harry Met Sally. It's the hilarious scenes with Timberlake and Kunis mimicking awkward sex scenes between two people who aren't supposed to care.

This is a really funny movie and could definitely work as a good date movie. The movie comes out today July 22. Go get your tickets now!

The Crazy Bitch Society

It was a little over a month ago that Real. Life. Woman. Talk. came across a new twitter follower by the name of CrazyBSociety (@CrazyBSociety on Twitter) yes, that stands for “Crazy Bitch Society” and it automatically caught our attention. Ok, with a name like that it would be hard to ignore, right? So who was this “Society” and what were they about? That is what we wanted to know, so the quest to find out more about the Crazy B’s was officially on.  Needless to say, the fact that I am blogging about this society should be an indication that we loved what we saw this group of women doing.  Do not let the title of the society deceive you; this group of women welcomes everyone with open arms. The amount of love that a new Crazy Bitch (“CB”) receives when she comes into the Society is a thing of beauty. All I can say is that I plan on being a Crazy Bitch for life!
I asked one of the three Pres-i-Bitches, Catrina (Hell Cat) Fels to give me a little more insight to the society.  She said that their vision is to reunite women and focus on their similarities instead all the catty and demeaning things women have been known to do to one another in the past. Crazy Bitch Society was just a name for some girlfriends hanging out until November 2010 when the friends put it on Facebook. Everyday she watches as women who would never have known or given each other thought, become best friends through the CB’s page.  Hell Cat says, “It is so awesome to see all these women coming together and supporting one another. I must honestly say that I am so proud and so passionate about this group. We are not in any way the Bad Girls Club. We are the awesome, strong, loving, helping hand giving, got your back type of Society!”  In my opinion, this is exactly why this Society has caught fire and grown tremendously since November.
In closing, I will post a portion of the mission statement of the CBS and ask that you go check them out on their Facebook page and click like just like me if you love what you see:!/CrazyBSociety

The Mission
The Crazy Bitch Society acknowledges, appreciates and seeks to unite women: the feisty homemaking single ladies who love being single and the exhausted under-appreciated wives, the free-thinking bitches with a dream and younger women just coming into their own with a bit of uncommon knowledge: and teach them that being a Crazy Bitch is NOT a state of is a way of life and you must OWN IT. It is acknowledging that women should share far more life experiences with one another, instead of focusing on what divides us. It is believing that all women should have the freedom to fully embrace their individuality and share it with the world, rather than adhere to what we are told women are supposed to be. It is appreciating the differences among us all and understanding that fostering a sense of unity among women will help make each of us stronger, while making the world a place where being called a bitch has less sting and less power to demean us. ...For us, crazy is living out loud, being true to ourselves, loving our families, surpassing our dreams, embracing our girlfriends, and ending girl-on-girl gossip and bullying. Being a Crazy Bitch in this Society means having tasteful and extreme fun by uniting with all our Crazy Bitch friends and enjoying what makes us similar. It's taking the term "Crazy Bitch" from misogynistic men and women and turning it into a pretty “hot damn” compliment.

Woman to Woman Encouragement

Someone will always be smarter. Their house will be bigger. They will drive a better car. Their children will do better in school. And their partners will fix more things around the house.

So let it go and love you and your circumstances! Think about it. The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart, and the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children. The richest woman you know - she's got the car, the house, the clothes - might be heartbreakingly lonely.

So, love you! Love who you are right now! Tell yourself, "I am
too blessed to be stressed!"

Stay Healthy Tidbit...

A few months ago a patient's daughter filed a complaint about me. Basically, I told her (with her family present) not to come in her mother's hospital room again, without removing the stench of her "unhealthy habit". Yesterday, that daughter reminded me of that event and thanked me...She's 75 days clean!'s just Good Medicine! Have A Healthy Day!

Sunday Laugh - Grandma In Court

(I came across this one when I was cleaning out some old emails...enjoy!)

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they
aren't prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his
first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He
approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?'

She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known
you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big
disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you
manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think
you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never
will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I
know you.'

The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed
across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense

She again replied, 'Why, yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he
was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking
problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his
law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention
he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was
your wife. Yes, I know him.'

The defense attorney almost died. The judge asked both counselors to
approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of
you idiots asks her if she knows me,    

I'll send you to the electric chair.

Horrible Bosses

The movie stars Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day star as a group of pals who all hate their bosses, and with good reason. Nick Hendricks (Bateman) has a complete jerk for a boss. He believes he is getting a promotion at work only to be sorely disappointed by his bosses selfish decision. Dale Arbus (Day) is a dental hygenist whose boss, played by Jennifer Aniston, not only sexually harasses him every day at work, but goes to great lengths to do so. Finally, Kurt Buckman (Sudeikis) is the only one of the group who loves his job and loves his boss. Then the unthinkable happens. His boss (Donald Sutherland) dies suddenly and his less than desirable son takes over.

At a bar one night the boys hatch a hypothetical plan to kill their bosses. Hilarity ensues as they first try to hire someone to do kill all three and the enter the business themselves when these plans fall through.  The cast is amazing and packed full of known and loved celebs. The already mentioned Jennifer Annistan and Donald Sutherland, as well others such as Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey help make the movie the laugh riot it really is.

Horrible Bosses comes out on Friday July 8th.
