Needed Me
Posted 2 June 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

But baby, don’t get it twisted

You was just another nigga on the hit list

Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad bitch

Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage

Fuck your white horse and a carriage

Bet you never could imagine

Never told you could have it

You needed me

Oooh, you needed me

Feel a little more, and give a little less

Know you hate to confess

But baby who, you needed me

– Rihanna

I’ve read some of those really nice letters other bloggers have written and posted on the internet. A lot of them are sort of a “New User’s Guide” to loving my old lover. They are often times friendly and overly pleasant. As I read through mostĀ of these posts, I get the feeling the writer is penning a note to a fellow book club, or Sunday school, or yoga class member. The words are sweet, kind, and thoughtful.

I have a feeling thisĀ letter will not read exactly like the ones mentioned above.

You will probably not find it friendly, or pleasant, or sweet, or kind.

However, I have thought long and hard about this message. I hope you do too. Read More

I ain’t gotta compete with a single soul

I’m good with the ball, point game, finger roll

Ask me how to do it, I don’t tell a single soul

Pretty women, wassup? Is ya here right now?

You a stand-up or is you in your chair, right now?

Uhh, do ya hear me?

I can’t let a wack nigga get near me

I might kiss the baddest bitch, if you dare me

I ain’t never need a man to take care of me

Yo, I’m in that big boy bitches can’t rent this

I floss everyday, but I ain’t a dentist

Your whole style and approach I invented

And I ain’t takin’ that back, cause I meant it

– Nicki Minaj feat. Drake and Lil Wayne

I was asked to participate in an interview for our internal website. The “Employee Spotlight” section of our Homepage is a place where one employee can go to read four or five fun facts about another employee. The interviews are conducted by a peer, the questions are random, and the answers are candid. Read More

One Of Us
Posted 20 May 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

If God had a name, what would it be?

And would you call it to His face?

If you were faced with Him in all His glory

What would you ask if you had just one question?

– Joan Osborne

Preface:

I am commonsensical. I am spiritual but not religious. I am Independent? Maybe? Okay, so I am probably more of a Democrat than my family would like to admit, but I am conservative too. I am Republican-ish. I believe in guns, and private healthcare, and ‘Merica. Fuck yeah! I love everyone. Or maybe I hate them all? I say asshole shit about this race, and that group, and those individuals. I discriminate against all the people – even toward my own race, class, sex, etc. Read More

Lost Boy
Posted 3 May 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

I am a lost boy from Neverland

Usually hanging out with Peter Pan

And when we’re bored we play in the woods

Always on the run from Captain Hook

“Run, run, lost boy,” they say to me

Away from all of reality

Neverland is home to lost boys like me

And lost boys like me are free

Neverland is home to lost boys like me

And lost boys like me are free

– Ruth B.

Let It Go
Posted 15 April 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

So come on let it go

Just let it be

Why don’t you be you

And I’ll be me

Everything that’s broke

Leave it to the breeze

Let the ashes fall

Forget about me

Come on let it go

Just let it be

Why don’t you be you

And I’ll be me

And I’ll be me

– James Bay

Love Yourself
Posted 4 April 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

And I didn’t wanna write a song

‘Cause I didn’t want anyone thinking I still care. I don’t,

But you still hit my phone up

And, baby, I be movin’ on

And I think you should be somethin’ I don’t wanna hold back,

Maybe you should know that

My mama don’t like you and she likes everyone

– Justin Bieber

In My Place
Posted 26 February 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings/ The Pretty Girl Mafia

In my place, in my place

Were lines that I couldn’t change

I was lost, oh yeah

I was lost, I was lost

Crossed lines I shouldn’t have crossed

I was lost, oh yeah

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?

Yeah, how long must you pay for it?

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?

Oh, for it

I was scared, I was scared

Tired and under prepared

But I wait for it

– Coldplay

How Bizarre
Posted 8 January 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

Ooh baby

(Ooh baby)

It’s making me crazy

(It’s making me crazy)

Every time I look around

(Look around)

Every time I look around

(Every time I look around)

Every time I look around, it’s in my face

It’s in my face

In the past 10 days, I have: caught a debilitating cold (… or maybe it’s the flu. [… or the bubonic plague.]), burned my hand making a frozen pizza, had a run-in with a loofah, an allergic reaction to a new face wash, and came really close to electrocution by Christmas lights. That’s death five ways in just ten days, people. What the fuck is going on here? Could my #27Club prophecy be coming true? Read More
