Here We Go Again...
Hey, don't you have a plane to catch or something? Hahaha...
Well, this time, I am supposed to write six quirky or unknown things about myself and then tag six more people. Clearly La Reina did not realize that I am tag-impaired so I will not tag six more people, but I will give it a go myself.
1.) I have met Naomi Campbell twice and she was very cool on both occasions.
2.) I would love to have a little dog, but I am not home enough to take care of one properly. But I will get and spoil one soon!
3.) I was born on Pablo Picasso's 91st birthday and Ciara was born on my 16th birthday.
4.) I am a licensed cosmetologist. Or, at least I was. I didn't get around to renewing my license within the 5-year limit, so now I've got to jump through a few hoops to get it back (and I will!)
5.) My mother told me that I was almost named Darcel, which in turn made me really heart Darcel Wynne on Solid Gold back in the day.
6.) I have attended three Miss America pageants - two with black winners. The first winner was Debbye Turner, Miss America 1990, who got huge cheers from the audience. The next year, Marjorie Judith Vincent of Illinois won and you could hear a pin drop. The minute they announced her name, there was literally a hush over the audience and then a smattering of polite applause as she walked down the famous runway as Miss America. When I got home to watch the tape? Canned applause. (Hmmm....) The next year, Carolyn Sapp of Hawaii won and Convention Hall exploded in pandemonium. (Hmmm....) When two black women in a row won again (Erika and Ericka in '03 and '04) I figured the pageant was in trouble, because their core audience wasn't going for it. Now, they're on CMT, the Country Music Channel (Hmmm...)
