Annivesaries, Remembrances, Memorials
Without intending to, I missed marking the one year annivesary of this 'ere blog. The Get Down has been getting down for about 14 months now. Amazing. I've been posting a lot less frequently recently, but you know I still love you, right baby? Come on, baby? Baby?
I also missed celebrating my first nappyversary. As y'all know, I stopped chemically straightening my hair last year right before the Portland Marathon. My back-to-birth thick, kinky, napptural 'do makes me happy every day. At the moment, I'm rocking bantu knots:
(and a couple of guns, too) most days. My students are scared shitless.
Finally, Tamara Dobson, aka Cleopatra Jones, passed last week. She was 6'2", a fierce and stunning woman, and an all-around bad motherfucker.
