Karma is a B*T*H, but Revenge can be worse :-)

I found this post on one of my favorite forums and had to share it with you all...i found it hilarious and disturbing at the same time...

so be careful how you treat people because there are all sorts of ways to get you back...

What is the worst thing you have done to get revenge on your Man/Woman when they made u Mad? A million and one trifling things I had thought about doing in the past came to mind but none as insane as some out some of these responses:

1.I cut up aluminum foil in little pieces and put it under his Leftovers and when he put it in the microwave……POW!!!!

2.My cousin put rubbing alcohol in her ex’s visine bottle after she found out he cheated… Had to wear a patch 4 a few dayz.

3.I took some dog food and mixed it in her hamburger helper.. haha, she cheated and she paid!!

4. I slept with my sideline boo in my home on my bed and didn’t change the sheets and the same night he laid right in all the juices.

5. Was dating the mom, she jumped fly, so I knocked down the daughter as revenge. Glad I grew up.

6.Hand Job using ICY HOT!!!!!

7.I f*cked her best friend and her cousin. not proud of it, but hey desperate times call for desperate measures

8. Moved 4 hrs away and the next week paid all my bills electronically with his whole check! I put soap on his tooth brush , put bleach on his clothes and washed it as usual and … make his food super spicy.

9.I found out this guy cheated on me so I log into his MSN blog anonymously and told all his females he has genital ..

**People Are Crazy****

What's the Worst thing you've done to get revenge?

Excerise Myths...

By now many of you know, i battle with my 'working out' regimen. one thing i want to get in order ASAP are the "Ab's". We all know that having a gut is the biggest wardrobe malfunction a woman could

so i found a few tips and myth busters to help us along the way and getting those abs that we desire...

1. Myth: To get rock-hard, you have to work your abs every day.Why: Abs need rest and recovery: It's only during rest that your muscles build. "Three to five days a week of consistent, dedicated abdominal training should get you strong, sleek abs," says Kathy Kaehler, trainer and author of Kathy Kaehler's Celebrity Workouts.

2. Myth: A good ab workout takes half an hour.Why: "If it takes you that long to feel them working, you're doing something wrong," says Kaehler. "I trained Jennifer Aniston about three days a week, and we did no more than five minutes of abs each time." Check your form, don't use momentum and focus on quality rather than quantity.

3. Myth: Super-slow crunches make you stronger.Why: Taking as much as a minute per crunch doesn't make you stronger than regular crunches do. In fact, ultra-slow ab work is less effective. Ideally, your workout should help you do everything better, from kickboxing to picking up a suitcase - neither of which you do in slo-mo.

4. Myth: The best time to train your abs is at the end of your workout.Why: "It makes no physiological difference when you train abs, it only matters that you do it consistently," says abs researcher and physical therapist Gilbert Willett, M.S., associate professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. So the best time to work them is simply whenever you're most likely to do it. "But if you do abs at the beginning of your workout, make sure you warm up first. Getting blood moving prevents many types of injuries during a workout."

5. Myth: You can't get a six-pack by doing Pilates.Why: "Pilates exercises your core, so if you practice it regularly and combine it with diet and cardio, it can give you a six-pack," says Kimberly Lyons, a personal trainer in L.A. But Pilates isn't a six-pack guarantee. "How your abs look has a lot to do with your genes, how lean you are, how long your torso is and how tall you are."

6. Myth: You won't get firm without a weight machine.Why: You don't need weights to build sleek and sexy abs, although some competitive athletes do use them to build extra strength. "Many weighted ab machines aren't designed for women," says Lyons. "If you don't fit into the machine properly, you might stress your body in the wrong spot." Her advice: Stick to the floor - it's cheap, effective and available everywhere.
Share some of your tips that are helping you get "fit" for the summer!!!

If you missed it.....

if you all missed the chicago bloggers Girlfriend to Girlfriend Happy Hour on last missed one hell of a good time!!! Maybe South Loop will Plan something else soon and you all can come out...

here is a snapshot!!

Random "Ish" on my Mind!!!!

1. has anyone else heard the rumor about Jennifer Hudson being "preggers". I surely hope that is false, because i swear her "boo" seems a little suspect to me.. (i know i am not the only one who thinks so)

2. I read that Janet Jackson takes 'Human Growth Hormones" to aid her in her rapid weightloss. supposedly, HGH Injections help decrease fat, slow aging, and boost stamina. but hasn't her body been through enough ups and downs (literally and figuratively speaking)

3. Jill Scott had her baby 'jett Hamilton Roberts' is 7lbs and 8 ounces :-) I am happy for her!!

4. i really want to support Ciara with this latest D, but Cici really hasn't given anything to work with this time around :-(

5. TV shopping has become an addiction for me. i just purchased the Time life/Motown Cd collection with my free dvd for ordering while watching the Damn that Billy dee Williams for hosting that half hour

6. i truly hate desperation, If I have politely turned you down once, please don't follow me around the CVS, just continue to restock the band aids and let me go about my

7. Why is that school seems to take forever to complete, but those tuition payments come around very quickly.

8. I've been volunteering a lot more these days, but as much as these organizations say they want the help..why does it take them so dang long to call a sista

just my random 'ish' for the day :-)

Behind Every Good Man, there is a Woman rolling her Eyes :-)

an adult male person, as distinguished from a boy

Similar to many women, i have my gripes and complaints about men. Many of you know I will go into a full blown tirade on my blog about my disappointments with some of the men in the world today. From the immature, to the"purposely" unemployed, to the grown guys living with their parents, the incarcerated, and the"players". It can almost seem hopeless, but i am very optimistic. I know that there are plenty of amazing men that are in existence all over. They are rare, but they do exist.

So, Today i want to acknowledge all of the true Gentlemen. The civilized, educated, sensitive, and well-mannered. The independent, goal oriented, intelligent, suave, honest, and good family man. i don't mention celebrate them enough. I also want to give credit to all of the women in their lives that helped whipped these men into shape. I want to celebrate of all of the mothers that nurtured, loved, taught, and disciplined these gentlemen. I want to acknowledge all of the sisters who had to sternly give their brothers the reality check needed when they got out of line ( it is not easy, i got two brothers), and of course I have to give credit to all of the women who have had to endure a great deal of foolishness just to get a man to be a man.

Many of the good men today had a few strong women in their lives to help them reach the success at a level many of them had deemed unattainable. So, as I celebrate all of the great men out there, i want to celebrate all of the women that helped them reach that point. (Michelle O'bama, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz)..and the list goes on...

So, Men remember "Behind Every Great Man, There Is A Woman Rolling her Eyes"

I Wonder...

1. Why is Chris Brown pleading not guilty when we all know full well that he clearly kicked Rihanna's A**

2. Why are people so tough on our 1st lady's wardrobe.. Personally, I think she looks great all the time.

3. Have you noticed many of the reporters that refer to the President as only "Barack"... I don't recall any other Presidents simply being call George, Bill, John...etc

4. Why is it still snowing every two days in chicago. I mean it is the Spring Season, Easter is near.

5. Is anyone else tired of Christina Milian & the dream sightings. She is still not going to sell albums, and please give beyonce back her blonde lace front wig

6. Am I the only fool that's still tuning in to see America's Next Top Model 26..this show has been on forever;-)

I'm just wondering...

My Name Is "Jen"....

Hello Beauties,

I have to tell you all what has been on my mind lately. I am so disappointed in the way today's young men refer to women. I am appalled at how young men attempt to approach young women, and I am disgusted by the "terms of endearment" that many of these fellas will use to get your attention. Lately, i have lost my ability to deal with of ignorance as my twin "South Loop Social Light" would say "I am allergic" I have become "Allergic" to immature young fools, who don't have a clue as to what a "gentlemen" is.

What has happened to the days of a man getting out of his car to speak to a young lady? How in the world is it that a guy will some how come to the decision that honking the horn at a woman and yelling out something incredibly ignorant like "Ah Shawty" is going to really get them a greeting from a woman. What happened to men being able to compliment a woman by using the most simple, but yet powerful words. Just simply saying, you look beautiful, but with today's young men you get "Ah Girl, you fine as hell" and i also remember being called a sexi m*thafuc*....I can count how many times I have been left in disbelief when i think about all of the crazy encounters i have had to endure. The worst are all of the names that they choose to call women 'shawty, ma, ah bay bay, lil mama"..the list goes on. Don't even get me started on the men who become angry because there approach was extra wack and now they are offended simply because they thought their "game" was tight and want to yell out obscenities toward you.

When will some of these young men realize that when you are approaching it is best to just be kind, use common courtesy, and know that less is more. "Game is not necessary or relevant. Simply stop her with an excuse me, follow up with a greeting like "hi, how are you?", you can even through in "My name is (blank)?", and that approach just may get the person to pause, smile, and say "Hi, My name is Jen" :-)

love you all!!!!
