PER Wikepedia - "April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day is a holiday celebrated in various countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on a fool's errand, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, such as the UK, Australia, and South Africa the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool".[1] Elsewhere, such as in France, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, and the U.S., the jokes last all day"

Here are some lovely pranks (Did I mention I hate the pranks LOL)

Glue eggs to the carton and beg for eggs in the morning. When the victim gets them the eggs break!

Find a box about the size of a cake. Then cover it with frosting, making it look like a cake. Then put it out in the office kitchen, or wherever people leave free food. Sit back as one of your co-workers tries to cut a slice.

If your milk comes in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring. It’s harmless April Fool’s joke but the results are pretty colorful.

Get up really early and sneak into your victims bathroom and fill their hair-dryer with baby powder. And when they turn it on, their head will be pure white just like an old person!

If you have a sink with a sprayer, put a rubber band around the handle when nobody’s looking. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash!

Take an empty coffee mix can and replace it with a can with coffee mix in it. Make sure coffee cans are the same brand, or it will not work. At the bottom of the can put a piece of paper that says April Fools. Make sure you help the person with making their coffee to see their reaction.

Get a small alarm clock and set it for 3:00 a.m. Sneak under the victim’s bed. Once it goes off, he/she won’t be able to find it will drive them nuts

Hello World
I received Mz Badu’s video Window Seat via email from a lot of my friends and a lot of people have asked me what do I have to say about it… the answer is
I LOVE MZ BADU! This is Erykah Badu! This is classic! I applaud her for stripping down to nothing and walking like a queen! BUT it’s the words that I listen to. I loved the way the video was shot (inspired by Matt & Kim/ Lessoned Learned) BUT once again it’s the message that I paid attention to. Check out the words at the end and ask yourself are you they? I never expect the ‘norm’ from her BUT I always expect another spectrum. THE SONG IS HOT!
ROCK ON MZ BADU! But I’m sure everyone who watched the video completely… im sure everyone asked themselves if they are quick to assassinate what we don’t understand? This can be so many things… I’m sure we all had something to think about once the video was over AND that’s the greatest part! Did it leave you thinking? Thank you Mz. Badu!

Hello World... I'm back
I've been super busy!! working on a Sassy Girl Tees photo shoot!! This has been quite the experience. We (Me and Marna) were so busy trying to pull this thing together. It was our first of many photo shoots. I'm excited and I can't wait to see how it all turns out. SO many things to do... such little time. We need an intern LOL!! I'm running around like a naked chicken. When I run around like a lil featherless chicken I surround myself with tons of music.
MUSIC is my calm in the midst of the storm.

Like the rest of the world I am saturating with myself with Sade! Yes she is so Sassy!! I love the new Sade CD!!

I'm a huge Corinne Bailey Rae fan!!
Check out her new one THE SEA
Love this cd! I love Corinne... I've submerged myself into the sea... without drowning LOL!!

AND lately you can find Mz Badu's new single floating around online of course I'm talking about Mz Erykah Badu! I love Erykah Badu she is sooooo Bad-uuuu LOL
Waiting patiently for her new cd New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)

I've joined a gym and had a training session that kicked my butt BUT I know if I stick to what the instructor said I'll be ready for the summer. YEP I'll be all Sassy-Li-Cious!

I've been slacking on the water thing (thumbs down for myself) I fell off the wagon aaaaagain.
Why is it so hard to do the right thing? Why can't I just drink water all day?? every day???
Pray for me please LOL because I am struggling in this area. I'm still a faithful lil walker every Saturday getting my 2 miles in weekly. Thank you again to all the walkers in my group (I love you guys)

So were done with February 2010!! Black History Month, Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger... NOT TIGER WOODS!! I don't wanna hear his name for at least another 8 months LOL)

February always seems to go so fast. Once again I want to thank all of the people who paved the way for me as a young black woman. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate your heart and soul. I hope to make all of those before me PROUD.

NOW were in March... Marzo!! March is my birthday month!!
What shall I do?? anyone have any ideas for me?? I'm taking suggestions.
