Hey fam,

Last week was a very intense week. By Thursday evening you were aware of the testimonies and questionings that happened at the hearing for Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. The question people walked away with how could you not believe, insert name here. Then there was those like Judge Kavanaugh that believe that this was a set up by the Democrats that are still angry about the election or the Clintons and the Kenneth Starr investigation.

I have heard Lindsey Graham, say “how can I believe someone that doesn’t know the date or location of this happening?”. Well, it is possible to be traumatized to remember everything that went on but the date. How do I know? Because it happened to me. I remember everything but the date. For a while, I thought I was alone. Why didn’t I make a complaint? I know the statistics and didn’t want to go to court. I knew no one would believe it. It hurts to talk about it. To be honest it wasn’t until I listened to Dr. Ford on Thursday that the feelings came back. This happened so long ago. Don’t want to go down that rabbit hole or else I won’t be able to come out.

Anyway, for this hearing what I think people are forgetting is that this is a job interview. When you act the way Judge Kavanaugh did in his job interview you wouldn’t get hired. People have said that he was angry about the alleged accusations. One can be angry in the initial statement, but to answer questions from one side one way and the other side another way, showed to me that he was childish. He flippantly answered questions with a question. He mansplained to Senator Feinstein about what the FBI does in a background check. As if! Let’s not forget when he refused to answer questions.

In a job interview with a panel, there may be one interviewer that strikes you as tough. You don’t show them that you’re bothered by her or him. Everyone knows this. You’re there to show that you handle anything or that you work well with others, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Sadly, people are taking this as that this ruined his life. If all of the allegations are true, the investigation didn’t ruin his life. He ruined it. Let him take responsibility for it. He has to come to grips with the fact that there are consequences for lying.

With all the BS that’s going on, it’s finally good to have something positive. And this time around, this “feel-good” moment comes from Flint Michigan’s little activist, 11-year-old Mari Copeny a.k.a Little Miss Flint. Yes, sir. As Earther Gizmodo reports, a new doll has been created for “Miss. Copeny”.

Mari received national spotlight in 2016 when she wrote a letter to our beloved then President Barack Obama urging him to visit her hometown, Flint Michigan, to see the “lead water crisis” for himself. And from that point on, Miss. Mari has been busy raising money to help purchase movie tickets, bikes, and backpacks for the Flint community kids.

Now, Lottie, an Ireland-based doll company has created the “Kid Activist Doll” to highlight Copeny’s achievements. And as Ian Harkin, the Founder of Lottie states . . .

“There are amazing little kids we’ve been finding, and they’re huge role models. These amazing little kids are changing lives for other kids because they are proactively sort of giving back to their communities.”

Miss. Mari expressed excitement about her being an “activist doll” by saying. . .

“I can’t wait to share it with other kids, especially the kids in Flint.”

Aww, the yooths (Reference from ‘My Cousin Vinny’). They are the only thing left in this insane world that makes sense nowadays. Good job Mari . . . Good JOB!!!

Wait, he was touring?!

Am I the only person who didn’t know that Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino was on tour? Well . . . Am I?!

As Page Six reports, Mr. Glover is now postponing the final leg of his tour due to a foot injury. That’s right, the North America leg of the tour which was set to run through October 12th is currently up in the “air” because of an injured foot. Now, “how or when” did he, Glover, hurt his foot? Not sure, but TMZ reports that a source states that the 34-year-old rapper foot is broken.  And actually, Donald was spotted in a wheelchair at the iHeartRadio festival. But believe he aggravated the injury once again on Sunday.

Glover took to “Twitter” to clarify that the tour is “postponed and not canceled“.

“My guy played through the pain, but has to sit some dates out. Back before the years over.”

On a side note, during Glover’s concert in Atlanta,  he (Glover) announced that this will be his last tour as “Childish Gambino“. And I think that name change thingy is a great idea.  Especially since I didn’t know you were out there touring. What? I’m just being honest.

Yeah, I know I’m late with “this” news but I am early for its “possible” release.

So it’s been a while since I’ve blogged about food and I ask y’all to bare with me cuz I may be a little rough around the edges, okay? But this bit of information can possibly be the best thing that I’ve ever heard in a long while. So, word on the street is that M&M may be coming out with a new flavor and “I” . . . approve. Yes, sir. As a matter of fact, I questioned why it took them this long to do so.

It appears as if the “snack snoops” on Instagram, especially @candyhunting and @SnackChatLive have “shared” photos of M&M’s possible new flavor “Mexican Jalapeno Peanut ” which may be released in 2019 as reported by Bustle. According to an Instagram post, the M&M’s milk chocolate coated peanut candy is planning to add a touch of jalapeno to provide a little spicy kick for all those M&M lovers. And, Snack Chat Live shared its review by stating that “you can definitely taste the jalapeno flavor“.

Bustle reported that they reached out to M&M via email for confirmation in regards to  this possible released “flavor”, but no additional information was shared at the time. So in other words, “M&M ain’t ready for y’all to know what they got up their sleeves yet”. And I’m sure the company will provide a thorough investigation on “who” breached the company’s leaked policy about this possible . . . new “confidential” flavor. Wink, wink and  . . . 😂 !

Anywhoozle, I guess “us” M&M lovers will have to wait to see if this ‘hot” flavor will be released next year in 2019. And only time along with patience will tell. I mean I’m already waiting for finale season of the Game of Thrones, so why not for a bag of candy. What . . . I’m just saying.

Hey fam,

There’s so much going on today. So where should I begin? Let’s start with Gritty’s cousin T-rump. Today he went to the UN to give his speech to world leaders. First off he was late for the meeting. During his speech after telling the “world” how much better the US is with old Orange man, he then talked how his administration has done more than any other in the “history of our country”. Well the next thing heard was a little chuckle and then full fledge laughter. He didn’t realize that the leaders were laughing at him, and looked twice as awkward when he joined in. What an IDIOT!

Next 45, decides to do what Turtle McConnell told him not to do. He went after the victims of Brett Kavanaugh. He talked of how Ms. Ramirez can’t remember anything because she was drunk. Constantly blaming the Democrats for planning a last-minute investigation. What he’s doing is character assassination. These women are risking their comfortable lives to relive the pain from years ago to make sure that everyone is aware of the character of this Supreme Court Justice nominee. I know one thing, I can’t wait to see what Michael Avenatti has up his sleeves.

And to round out the day, Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison. He is the first person out of the #metoo movement to be convicted. Considering he is 81 years old, you can say he will be serving a life sentence. He is now classified as a sex offender. After the sentencing, he was sent to jail and will have to go to counseling.

After hearing all this stuff I need to kick back tonight. Join me on twitter @SayingSimply while I live tweet during “The Voice” and “This Is Us”
