The Announcement: The Birthday Countdown Begins!

So my birthday is on August 22nd and as of today there are ten days until the big day arrives. It is the beginning of the official countdown and I’m so excited.

My family usually celebrate our birthdays for the entire month so I’ve already been enjoying some treats this August. The actual weekend of my birthday though looks like a whole lot of fun but I’ll share the details of that when it happens.

In the meantime, to coincide with the countdown I thought I’d share 10 random things about moi from one of those interview apps I did on Facebook.

1: If you were in a band what would you call it?
Trix and Stix – There’d be a lot of attitude and a lot of drums.

2: A sitcom about your life would be called…?
A spoonful of sugar – It’d be about finding something to smile about after all the crazy stuff life throws at us.

3: I’m allergic to…
People who spit in the street and Akon. Used to be allergic to Ne-yo to but then he sang ‘Closer’ and I was cured.

4: I’d describe my sense of humour as…
Easy to ignite

5: What would your superhero name be?
Whisper – Wielding much power with little effort. I’d wear a stealth suit invisible to the naked eye and undetectably silent.

6: Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Sanaa Lathan – She’s already got the journo bit down from Brownsugar but she’d need to loosen up a bit for the part where I discovered karaoke.

7: What’s the most embarrassing song you’ve done karaoke to?
Under the Sea from Little Mermaid but only because I liked the ‘hotter under the water’ line.

8: When they write my obituary I hope they mention…
She loved much and loved well.

9: I love the scent of…
Dior Addict. It’s amaaaaaaazing and seriously addictive.

10: The older I get the more I don’t care about…
Singing badly and dancing wildly.

So now that you know me a little better I also wanted to take the oppportunity to say how tremendously blessed I feel having you guys who have choose to follow Harlem Loves and give me a huge dose of happy each time you have commented or emailed me.

I love doing these announcement posts just so I can thank you and also give a special welcome to new followers. Yep I see you guys and you’re truly appreciated!

Big Squeezy Hugs
