I see she brought the Jigga swagger with this one..
If you're flying to a holiday get-together, to see family, or for any other reason that you have to use a plane here are 5 tips from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration to help speed your way through airport security.
Do not gift-wrap carry-on items. Security officers are required to remove the wrapping paper. Wrapped gifts should be packed in your checked bags, according to TSA spokesman Christopher White.
Do not bring remote-controlled toys as carry-on luggage. "Unfortunately in this world we live in, terrorists have an interest in using remote-controlled detonators," White said. You can put them in checked bags.
Pies (and other food, such as gingerbread, cookies and the like) are permitted as carry-on items. "It doesn't matter the consistency, though we may perform some additional scrutiny on the passenger or the plate," White said.
Jams and jellies are considered gels and are therefore subject to the 3-1-1 rules if brought as carry-on items: They must be in containers no bigger than 3 ounces, and they must all fit in one 1-quart clear zip-top plastic bag. (Otherwise, wrap them carefully to prevent breakage, and put them in your checked bags.)
Every airport in the country with more than one security lane now has a designated "family lane," but you don't need to be traveling with children to use it, White said. These lanes are open to any travelers who don't want to be rushed, whether due to special needs, or just wanting a few more minutes to remove shoes and coats, open up laptops and deal with other items. Travelers carrying medically necessary liquids of more than 3 ounces (such as diabetics) should also use the family lanes, White said.
Good news for the future: Checkpoint X-ray machines are being upgraded with advanced technology that can distinguish between liquid explosives and beverages, so "we are considering making changes some time in 2009" on the ban on liquids over 3 ounces, White said.

I hope this helps you out in all your holiday traveling..and have a safe and merry holiday.

This is Keri Hilson's new video called "Turnin Me On" featuring Lil' Wayne. It's been out for a little bit but I think it's not getting the proper radio play that it deserves. I really like the video and the song--it's very catchy.
The premise is how dudes can really turn you off when you at the club and etc, and when a dude comes at you "just right". Keri says "You should recognize a real woman" ..loves it, anyways peep the video.
What do you think? Oh and to the dudes, she's not male bashing she just giving you the tools to come at her correct, what dude can get mad at that?

So if you didn't watch anything in the sports world last night Cleveland State beat No. 11 Syracuse in the Carrier Dome with a hail Mary half-court shot.
Here's the video of game winning shot
What was more entertaining and hilarious, was what happened after the game.
Head coach Jim Boeheim, who looked as confused as Yao Ming trying to play defense was answering questions when his mic started to malfunction. A few nasty stares at this horribly made device wasn't enough, so Boeheim took a swipe at the thing. No, seriously. He took a jab so quick at the mic, I felt I was watching the Kimbo Slice fight again. Just peep the vid..Beware: it is definitely too funny for work but hit play anyways.
So, what is your take on the situation. What do you think Coach Boeheim was thinking/saying in his mind to make him take a swipe at the mic like that. I personally think he was saying the following:
"I might have lost my first fight on the court this season, but I damn sure ain't losing with a mic"
Just my take though, what yours. Let a sister know.

Well I haven't posted any of Lil's Wayne's thoughts on sports lately because more often than not these days, he really hasn't had too many smart things to say. ( Kid's Stay off the drugs and misc. liquids) But, he bought up some interesting points about the NFL, and I can appreciate his few moments of intelligence.
Lil' Wayne- "The AFC is a real mystery right now. You kind of know what's going to happen with the NFC, but the AFC is all messed up this year. I'm probably the only person out there who thought the Chiefs were gonna be playoff contenders, and Cincinnati would be good, too. "
Suga HiL- Very true, I feel that sometimes NFL mess up games just to play with people's heads.
Lil' Wayne- "The whole Plaxico thing kind was crazy because immediately afterward everyone was talking about the legal implications and what are the Giants going to do with him now, and no one stopped and said, My God, this guy just shot himself. Is he okay? Was it stupid? Of course. I mean, I accidentally shot myself when I was twelve and that's a scary lesson to learn. But before you go yelling at him and talking about his punishment for being so stupid it's like, Guy, is your leg okay? I was amazed no one was asking that question. The guy just shot himself in the leg!"
Suga HiL- No one was asking if he was okay because he shot himself in the leg..FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, Lil' Wayne, it's his leg. My thinking was if you are dumb enough to put yourself in a situation like that, you deserve all the consequences coming to you. (All I gotta say is OJ=15 yrs in prison)
So what do you think bout' what Weezy had to say, or what I had to say for that matter. Let a sister know. The full blog entry is HERE.

Obviously this post really doesn't fall into any specific category, but who doesn't love Will Smith?
Thanks to Mr. World Premiere for the vid, plus every Will Smith I have ever seen he has dropped some jewels of knowledge. Unlike a lot of celebrities now days, they don't really have too much to say so I always enjoy a Will Smith interview.
By the way, do you have any jewels you want to drop today? Mine, try to outdo and challenge yourself everyday. And always strive to be happy and to ignore the drama.
It's definitely harder said than done.

It's another Friday, and here is a great Throwback that came at just the right time..
I was a little heated about having someone try to "do me" at work and did a terrible job, leading to twice the work for me. I was talking to my friend about it and this is what he had to say:
"You'll get it, your are very smart, and strong willed".
It's great to have people in your life to say things to you like this, if you don't have any, get some friends that will encourage you when you need it. Anywho, here is the throwback from none other than Whitney Houston (pre-crack, ya'll know this song; Exhale (Shoop, Shoop) from the Waiting to Exhale Soundtrack. So the next time you feeling stressed..(all together now) deep Breath...Exhale!!
Enjoy the video and have a great weekend, I know me and my Rum are going to have a great one. What's your plans for the weekend?
