Weekend Highlights:

Friday night, we accidentally ended up at what I can only describe as an “Upper class” Black event. You know the kind, they offer you free lollipops, free glamour pictures and the promoter goes around pretending he cares whether or not you have a great time; and the night starts off with a bunch of people, stiffly dressed, doing their best to make you aware that they are lawyers/doctors/Investment Managers by day, but as soon as the music starts to rum, they turn into the same sleazy peeps you would meet at a ghetto jam.

The highlight of the night, was this beautiful petite girl, let’s call her Thumbelina. Thumbelina had the tightest pair of pink pants, the painted on kind, and the girl was well developed in all the right places. Now I love people who can dance and Thumbelina had a wonderful rhythm about her. However you could tell she spent a bit of time in front of the mirror. Anyway back to the highlight. At one point Thumbelina, got down on her hind legs, started bouncing around, whilst simultaneously twirling her bum, whilst licking her fingers. She was like a little energizer bunny. Her entire pack joined her, as well as a few others in the club, which led me to believe that this particular dance is the new version of the dutty wine….what’s it called???

I tried demonstrating the dance to Fathead (my younger brother) but all I got, was him holding his sides in laughter. My mini demonstration made me realise just how old I am.

The rest of the weekend was dedicated to food. Butter Chicken with delicious Nan’s from Tanjore..(Everyone in TO needs to try this once,) and I made a Roast with Rosemary potatoes and Pilaf Rice, last night. Came out rather smashingly; I was dying to take a picture and post it, but I came to the realization that this would be just silly, considering some people cook on a daily basis….and not just once a month, when the feeling hits them.

Maybe the Hot Wuk (regarding the dance)?

I actually went to something the complete opposite. Friday was spent dancing my ARSE of to 80's music, afrobeats and salsa. Saturday was spent in the company of eclectic artists, one of whom when I told him I was a Sr. Marketing Consultant at financial company responded, "Oh God, how horrible!"

Hehe...I love artists!

Simple Enigma: THAT's IT!

Thank you...now my question is, West Indians are a sexually free lot,....why they still feel the need to imitate sex so much? They getting it more than any other nation on earth....why still the obsession??

Island Spice said...

what.. pray tell.. are her hind legs??
And that most definately is the Hot Wuk .. ay ay ay ay ay!!

Jdid said...

what pray tell do you mean we are gettin it more than any other nation? you do a scientific poll? :-)

the hot wuk and durty wine are just the latest moves to come out of the dancehall. I think its just a response to some of the slackness in dancehall music to be honest.

but on a whole we are just more sexual in our dance than others. we dont have as much hang ups about wining or being close to each other on a dancefloor, its just a dance not actually anything intimate.

mind you the new dancehall stuff is just straight rude. simulated juking i call it. a sign of the times.

Sorreee. I should have left it at Overt Sexuality is more accepted in the Carribean....that some other parts of the world...(Am I digging myself into an even deeper hole?)

Winning on each other is one thing, but fanning your nether regions and pretending to touch yourself well that's just another...

I had Indian food for dinner last night. My friend makes butter chicken. Yummy, although when I found out what went into it I was a little traumatized.

Lol @ that dance.

at my old high school dances, i seen people pulling their pieces out of their pants. if they weren't having sex, then his pants would be around his waist instead of his ankles...
