A hundred and five is the number that comes to my head

When I think of all the years I wanna be with you

Wake up every morning with you in my bed

That’s precisely what I plan to do

– Jason Derulo


I called it last Sunday.

Tay and Kristen were sitting on my couch. I was in the kitchen making lunch when I looked over and said, “I mean, you’re obviously getting engaged next week.” “What? Wait. What do you know?” Kristen interrogated. “Nothing. It’s just, well, your Mom made an effing ornament. Why wouldn’t y’all be getting engaged?” She brushed it off, “Mom made an ornament for Ben and Calyn (Kristen’s younger sister and her BF) too. So that doesn’t mean shit.”

“Whatevs, bitch. You’re getting engaged.”

Think of all the fun I’ve missed,

Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed,

Next year I could be just as good,

If you’ll check off my Christmas list

– Eartha Kitt



Sup. Look, I know, it’s been a hot minute since we’ve had any correspondence. I mean – hello – I am a grown-up now. However, I do hope this blog finds you well. Wait. You do have wi-fi in the North Pole, right? Read More

Lose Yourself
Posted 16 December 2013 / By MC / Archives/ The Apple Doesn't Fall Far...

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

Christmas has changed drastically for our family over the last ten years.

Up until I was sixteen, we spent every Christmas in Charleston. As soon as school let out, we were on the road and headed home. Some years, depending on who was getting what for Christmas, Momma and Dad would have to rent a U-Haul to get all of our gifts down to Mimmie and Nana’s. And every Christmas Eve, we alternated grandparents’ house, but magically Santa still knew which house to visit.

Our family of five shuffled from house to house for days. As kids, Bubba, Mace, and I loved it. We loved the excitement. We loved spending time with our grandparents, our aunties and uncles, and our little cousins. Of course, I still had to split time between here and there, but that just extended Christmas all the more for me.

We were different than most kids in our classes – we weren’t from around here – we spent Christmas far away with family we didn’t get a chance to see that often. So Christmas was an extra special time for all of us… for more than just the typical reasons.

And then, Momma and Dad decided to ruin it. Read More

If I Were A Boy
Posted 12 December 2013 / By MC / Archives/ Miss Clariss Musings

But you’re just a boy

You don’t understand

Yeah, you don’t understand, oh

How it feels to love a girl someday

You wish you were a better man

– Beyoncé

boyswillbeboysA couple of months ago, I wrote a piece that was intended to be kind of a “girl’s guide to getting it right.” It… being life. Ms. Jackson was a hit. Everyone seemed to love my 25 little nuggets of wisdom. Woo! Girl power!

But over the past couple of days it suddenly occurred to me, “Who is writing down the ‘guy’s guide to getting it right?'” Who is taking the time to write down the ends and outs of manhood – the “dos and don’ts” of being a dude? Shouldn’t they have a list too? Shouldn’t someone, somewhere, be keeping track of similar things for the men? I mean, I know Mr. Big, Bubba, and the rest of my guy friends could definitely use a guide of some sort… Read More

Don’t let the bastards get you down

Turn it around with another round

Go Rest High On That Mountain

Go rest high on that mountain

Son your work on earth is done

Go to Heaven a shoutin’

Love for the Father and the Son

The week of Thanksgiving was a rough one for those of us here in Miss Clarissland.

Bubba had to put our sweet black Lab, Sammie, down on Monday. Mr. Big’s 90-year-old grandpa passed away on Thanksgiving. And my celebrity man crush, Paul Walker, lost his life in a terrible car accident on Saturday. I guess what they say is true – everything comes in threes. Read More
