With my favorite holiday approaching I think that this is the appropriate time to share with you one of my favorite Christmas songs, Santa Baby.  The lyrics are below.  Many people have recorded this song but my favorite singer of this song is Eartha Kitt! Happy Holidays!  Enjoy!


(Baboom baboom baboom baboom)
(Baboom baboom baboom baboom)
Santa Baby, just slip a sable under the tree
For me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a fifty-four convertible too
Light blue
I’ll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you’ll check off my Christmas list
Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that’s not a lot
Been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex
And checks
Sign your ‘x’ on the line
Santa cutie, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing
A ring
I don’t mean on the phone
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight

I recently watched an episode of the tv news/entertainment show, Inside Edition where they did a feature story on Purity Balls.

And for those of you out there thinking that Inside Edition did a story on males with squeaky clean testicles, your dead wrong!

A Purity Ball is a formal party that is thrown where young girls wearing beautiful white ball gowns make a solemn vow to their fathers wearing black or white tie to abstain from having sex until they are married.

And folks, they are becoming more and more popular! Go figure!

Here are a few thoughts that I have on Purity Balls:

– In terms of teenage girls abstaining from sex until they’re hitched, i’m all for it because let’s face it a girl only gets to be young once in her life and for me that means going to college, traveling to different places and doing fun things without the encumbrances of adult life, i.e taking care of a constantly crying newborn baby when the girl who just gave birth to this baby is practically a baby herself!

– But in terms of Purity Balls when it comes to me personally I have to honestly say that I could never make such a solemn vow to abstain from sex until marriage because to me one of the most important parts of a healthy lasting relationship is good sex. It is an absolute requirement that I be sexually compatible with my man and for me the worst Purity Ball fear is that if I waited until after I was married to have sex with my man and found out that he was lousy in bed could I stay with this person forever knowing this no matter how much I loved him. Folks, i’m a person who likes to know exactly what I am getting when I buy or invest in something. I mean don’t get me wrong I like surprises every once in a while but in terms of the Purity Ball thing, no freakin’ way!

–  So in terms of Purity Balls not being the right thing for me personally i’m glad that they are the right thing for alot of other people out there especially teenage girls. And I hope to see more young girls making that solemn vow to abstain from sex until marriage and I really hope to see Purity Balls with young teenage males and their mothers making that solemn vow too!

– And last but not least,  no offense,  Purity Balls and people who participate in them are also a tad bit creepy to me.

P.S.     Although I applaud the general theory of the Purity Ball, I ain’t gonna’ lie and say that there is a little part of me that totally delights in a girl who thinks that she is better and more god fearing than you and has sworn up and down that she will not have sex until she’s married only to get knocked up and busted a short time later for being a total fraud and hypocrite.

When I opened up my email just a few minutes ago, I was surprised to find a nice email from New Hampshire DJ extraordinaire herself, Sarah Sullivan of WBYY – 98.7 The Bay and the kick-ass Sunday morning 10 am – 12 noon radio show, Brunch By The Bay.

Here it is:

From:  *”

To:  *Peden Tina”
Hey Tina!
I read your blog. Thank you for the correction! I was sure Rapture came out in 1979, but I was El-wrong-o! My apologies! This coming Sunday, I’ll make the correction. It will give me a good excuse to play the Sugar Hill Gang!
Feel free to make suggestions for the show. I could use help from a fellow music lover! I always have my ears open for great music.
All the best!

Folks, you gotta’ love a female DJ with the balls to admit that she was wrong and plays the Sugar Hill Gang’s Rappers Delight on her popular Sunday morning radio show!
Sarah Sullivan, 98.7 The Bay, Garrison City Broadcasting, The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Blondie & Rap Songs you guys totally rock!

I sure as hell hope that I don’t start a race war with this one but I gotta’ keep it real and tell Sarah Sullivan, a disc jockey on New Hampshire’s 98.7 The Bay Radio Station that “Rapture” by Blondie is not the first rap song.

At approximately 11:00 am this morning on her popular radio show, Brunch By The Bay, Sarah Sullivan introduced the song “Rapture” by Blondie as “The First Rap Song” and with that opened up a big-ass can of racial worms! So, here we go!

“Rapture” by Blondie was the first rap-influenced song to reach number one on the Billboard Music Charts in early 1981.

But Rapper Kurtis Blow’s influencial rap song, “The Breaks” hit the Billboard Charts much earlier in 1980 peaking at number 87.

While the Sugar Hill Gang’s rap song, “Rappers Delight” hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Music Charts on January 5, 1980 making it the first rap song to ever hit the music charts.

And way, way, way before even these history making boys and girl, other rappers in the late 1970’s in places ranging from New York to California had already created popular rap songs that were played and sold around their neighborhoods only. So rap music was out and about way way way before Blondie’s hit rap-influenced song, “Rapture” ever came out.

Blondie’s place in rap history is that they brought rap to the white masses and diversified it.

And in this black girl’s opinion, they did a damn good job because I absolutely love the song!

So Sarah Sullivan of 98.7 The Bay & The Bay Radio Station, please get your facts straight before you broadcast them to the New Hampshire masses so you can avoid blog posts like this from pissed off rap fans like me.

P.S.    Sarah, even though I feel that your statement on the air was false this morning, I still love your show! Keep up the good work  Sarah, Garrison City Broadcasting & Robert Demers!  But be sure to precheck your facts!

10. Avoid having your prep school buddies tell back in the day stories about you.

9. Avoid having talking parrots named “Peepsta” talk shit about you behind your back.

8. Avoid having a one-name professional stage name like Bret, Kippy or Witherspoon.

7. Avoid having white people walk beside you at daytime instead of moving across the street.

6. Avoid having respected rappers like Ice-T, Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg diss you in a rap song.

5. Avoid starring in a lame-ass movie like “Are We There Yet” and star in a kick-ass tv show like “Law & Order SVU”. (Hey Ice Cube, I applaud the showing of a loving caring black father but overall the movie still sucked! Sorry brother, just telling it like it is! And Ice-T, I love the show and your cop character, Fin Tutuola! From rapping about killing cops to portraying one. You’ve come a long way, baby! In the good sense, of course.)

4. Avoid attending National Organization of Women rallies where you bust out rhymes like “Everybody let’s get this party started! So I want all of ya’ll to say strong confident woman, strong confident woman!” When a more appropriate professional rapper would have busted out a rhyme like “Everybody let’s get this party started! So I want all of ya’ll to say ho! Say ho ho ho ho!” (P.S. Professionalism goes a long way in the rap world!)

3. Avoid ripping off the names of kick-ass legendary actors like “Al Pacino” and going by a totally lame-ass variation of it like “Alpa Chino” in real life or in fictional kick-ass movies like Tropic Thunder. (P.S. This black female writer thinks that talented-ass white actor, Robert Downey Jr. did a totally kick-ass performance as black Sargeant Lincoln O’Siris in the kick-ass movie, Tropic Thunder!)

2. Avoid writing a song for use in real life or in a fictional movie like Tropic Thunder where you repeatedly say, “I love the pussy! Hell yeah! I love the pussy! Hell yeah!” When you clearly love the penis. More specifically former N’Sync boy band member and passable actor, Lance Bass’ penis! (Ewww, gross!)

1. Avoid having a totally talented-ass but scary-ass especially when it comes to his ex-wife, Kim, white rapper like Eminem (a.k.a. Marshall Mathers) give you any kind of praise whatsoever! (P.S. Eminem may be a totally talented-ass scary-ass multi-million dollar numerous number one songs rapper but he is a totally talented-ass scary-ass multi-million dollar numerous number one songs WHITE rapper which to the world of rap which is predominantly BLACK is a total negative. God Bless Rap In America And God Please Eliminate Reverse Racism In America!)

WARNING & SPECIAL NOTE: If you are a BLACK rapper who either is from Stamford Connecticut or has parents with white collar jobs avoid going into rap at all because you’ll never be taken seriously and will be constantly dissed for not being poor or not growing up in a bad neighborhood! But if you are black rappers in the above situations who absolutely insist on going into rap because it is your God given right, then perhaps take a play out of the Black But Totally Middle Class Will Smith Play Book and rap only about things that you know like “Parents Just Don’t Understand” Middle Class Stuff. And in your case black rappers from Stamford Connecticut or whose parents have white collar jobs try rapping about your country club woes or which college should I go to in the fall woes and the rap world just may accept and only snicker a little at you.

Whether he is a cold-blooded murderer or simply a man who was justifiably protecting himself from harm or whether he is a die-hard racist or a man who simply made a negative remark without thinking because let’s face it, it does happen to all of us at one time or another, even if George Zimmerman doesn’t get charged with second degree murder or a hate crime or a civil lawsuit or any other charge that people can think of to throw at him to avoid a race riot, basically this man’s life is over.

And to me that’s sad.

People let’s face it, even though in Mr. Zimmerman’s case there is compelling evidence to suggest that he was indeed acting in self-defense (although in Mr. Martin’s defense I do believe that Mr. Zimmerman did instigate the scuffle that broke out between them) his life is still over in America and especially in  Black America.  (Because to most of Black America he will always be the ultimate symbol of injustice for blacks in the American legal system.)

For instance, if Mr. Zimmerman is ever convicted of one of the crimes that he will eventually be accused of and eventually goes to jail, he’ll have to deal with the black inmates of that prison either wanting to kill him or beat the shit out of him on a regular basis for what he did to Trayvon.


If Mr. Zimmerman is never charged with any crime related to the Trayvon Martin case he’ll still have to deal with the many angry black people all across America who think he got away with murder and alot of people in this case are not willing to let this issue go so Mr. Zimmerman’s only options in this case is to either go into hiding, move out of the country or get extensive plastic surgery which totally sucks!

It is unfortunately a no-win situation for this man all around.

So people always remember that on February 26th 2012, not only did a 17 year old black boy’s life end but a 28 year old white/hispanic man’s life ended as well.

And that’s a damn shame for both of them being so young and all.

Last Friday I was riding the bus on my way out to Walmart. I had been on the bus for no more than 5 minutes when a middle-aged white lady got on the bus and sat down in one the seats upfront and catty corner to the bus driver. The very second her bum hit the seat she immediately starts telling the bus driver about her SSI benefit situation.

Apparently from what I heard, the woman gets $674.00 a month from SSI. Recently, she received a letter from SSI telling her that due to the increase in the cost of living that her SSI monthly payment was going to increase from $674.00 to $698.00. The woman then told the bus driver who was politely listening to her while deftly steering his way through 5:00 traffic that she was happy for a micro-minute. Apparently 2 days later she receives another letter but this time it was from the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services informing her that due to her increase in cash benefits from SSI that they were going to cut the food stamp benefits that she received by $10.00. And that’s when this chick really went off!

After involuntarily hearing her story, I don’t blame her! I mean people let me ask you this, if the federal goverment deems that there has been a rise in the cost of living and gives a person an increase in their benefits how come the state doesn’t? Unless of course the cost of living hasn’t gone up in New Hampshire which I know is totally untrue since I live in New Hampshire. People, my rent, food, utilities and clothing costs have all gone up. So I wonder how come instead of the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services penalizing this lady for getting an increase in her cash benefits and taking away $10.00 from her food stamp benefits you would think that with a rise in the cost of living that they should be increasing her food stamp benefits by at least $10.00.

I’ll tell ya’ an increase in one thing is just an excuse for Obama and the state governments to screw you in something else!

Geez, louise!!!

Cost of living increase my ass!

Number 10: If you are a White person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 9: If you are a Hispanic person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 8: If you are a Asian person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 7: If you are a race, nationality or creed other than the above and don’t vote for him basically you are a racist.

Number 6: If you are a Black person and don’t vote for him, you are not only a traitor but you should be kicked out of the Black race just like Michael Jackson.

Number 5: If you are not a Black person and use the phrase, “That’s the pot calling the kettle black”, basically you are a racist.

Number 4: If he catches you buying a can of green olives at the supermarket basically you are a racist because you didn’t do the Reverend Jeremiah “Wright” thing and buy the black olives.

Number 3: If he sees you eating white, brown, red and yellow jelly beans and not eating the black jelly beans basically you are a racist.

Number 2: If you make any kind of racial slur (i.e. the “n” word or nappy-headed ho) and truly regret your hateful words afterward, be prepared to appear on his radio show for a severe scolding only to be told that you are a racist who will never be forgiven which is the perfect message a man of the cloth should be sending out. (Hey Don Imus, I can feel your pain!)

Number 1: Bouffant’s in your face twenty-four hours a day until November 2012! No! No! No! Say it isn’t so! (I’m sorry but a Black
Man wearing a bouffant hairdo is just plain wrong at least from this Black Woman who just wrote this blog post point of view!)

(Definition) Choppers Complex 22 is a psychological condition in which an individual won’t eat or drink anything for twenty-two hours after they brush their teeth for fear that they will get their teeth dirty too soon thus giving them only 2 lousy hours out of the entire day to scarf and drink some shit down which really pisses them the hell off and often makes them go apeshit really easily.

I will now use this term in a couple of sentences to clarify it’s meaning.

“Look at that good-lookin’ guy with the tight cute ass and a major case of choppers complex 22 freak the fuck out just because his girlfriend got her nasty-ass smelly saliva and tacky-ass blood red lipstick all over his beautiful white teeth!”

“When Dr. Martin, the orthodontist with alzheimer’s disease, suggested to a couple of his college-aged patients with choppers complex 22 that they do a couple of jello shots for him while they were on Spring Break this year they all voted unanimously to beat the living shit out of his forgetful ass with a stainless-steel-girls-gone-wild-gelatin-mold.”

“Hey mommy! Listen to this song that I wrote while slacking off in Mrs. Keane’s spelling class:
Ralphie Conner has choppers complex 22,
He is a total fruitcake and the class thinks he’s really cuckoo,
Because of all the jacked-up shit me and the class have done to him his tired-ass mama has decided to sue,
So here’s Officer Jackson with a subpoena baby just for you,
Hey mommy come back don’t run cause’ there ain’t a damn thing that you can do,
Hey bitch, you’re getting sued! Woowho!
P.S. Mom, have I told you lately that I really love slacking off in school and you too!
By the by mom, please don’t whoop my ass when we get home, boo hoo boo hoo!”

And last but not least, I would like to send a big ol’ heavenly shout out to the beautiful and talented, Farrah Fawcett with the gorgeous choppers! For an example, check out the famous 70’s poster of Farrah in a red bathing suit which I have included with this blog post. Hey Charlie’s Angel, this heterosexual black girl thinks that you rocked the fucking planet while you were here, you are sorely missed!

P.S. As a former domestic violence victim myself, I want to personally take the time to thank you for your brilliant portrayal of a domestic violence victim in the classic tv movie, The Burning Bed! Because of you, angel, domestic violence was brought out into the open and so much has been done to stop it. Thank you! My only sadness when it comes to you angel is that unfortunately you died on the same day as Michael Jackson and got somewhat lost in the drama. But I just wanted to let you know Farrah that Michael Jackson’s death may have stolen alot of your thunder but to alot of your true fans like me we mourned you vigorously right along with the King of Pop himself! Farrah Fawcett, my favorite Charlie’s Angel, you will forever be missed! God bless you and Michael Jackson! (I am a big fan of his too!) Rest in heavenly peace, babies, rest in heavenly peace!

By the by, I absolutely loved that awesome iconic 70’s hairstyle of yours! It was totally awesome and so are you!

Hey Rite Aid, I have a question for you and I would really like for you to answer it.

How come you guys always put the black hair care section in the front of the store?

I mean come on people of all races, let’s be honest with each other. There is one fact of life in regards to the Rite Aid chain. Whenever you walk into a Rite Aid Pharmacy pretty much at the end of one of the front aisles is the black hair care section.

Hey Rite Aid, what are you guys trying to say? I mean don’t get me wrong i’m not saying that you’re racist or that there is racism involved. But this is one mystery that I would like solved.

What the heck is going on?

Hey Rite Aid, F.Y.I., Walmart doesn’t do this. No way! Walmart puts the black hair care products usually smack dab in the middle of their stores. I mean they don’t take any chances. If the black hair care products are in the middle of the store nobody is going to say a damn thing or prove anything. They got their corporate butts covered big time!

Those guys sure are some smart mothertruckers!

(At this time I would like to send a shout out to Walmart. You go, corporate boys and girls! Good non racist strategy!)

Uh oh! Sorry, I have to interrupt this story for a breaking event!

The white hair care products in the Rite Aid stores are demanding to be heard! (The white hair care products now have the floor.) The product, Pantene Shampoo, will be speaking for the white hair care products.

“Look, i’m sick of people whining and always sticking up for the black hair care products! What about us white hair care products? Will we ever overcome? At least the black hair care products have a section they can call entirely their own! What do the white hair care products have? Nothing! We have to share a section with every tom dick and harry! I mean don’t get me wrong, I love and respect all races, but damn! Would it be a crime for the white hair care products to have a section of their own too. I thought this was America, land of equality. Why can’t we have the same luxury as the the black hair care section? Why are the white hair care products called racist just because we want a section of our own? That ain’t right! Hey, white hair care products need space! We like to breathe, stretch our bottle legs. White hair care products are fine and upstanding and it’s time we got some glory too! Ya’ll better recognize! Give us a break and give us our own section, Rite Aid!”

“Omigod! Whine, whine, whine, whine! Hey ya’ll, this is the Nintendo Wii from the electronics section along with my boys and girls, the Ortega taco shells from the food section in Rite Aid Pharmacy jackin’ the mic from the whiny white hair care products. Products, it’s my turn to talk so black hair care products and white hair care products, listen up because I got something to say!”

“Remember, it’s better to burn out, than fade away!” (At this time, i would like to send a shout out to the heavy metal band, Def Leppard! Dudes, I just love that line of the song! It totally rocks! Anyhoo, back to the drama.)

“I have been asked to represent for all my brown, red, yellow and other beautiful colors of the racial rainbow. Hey at least the both of you and that includes you white hair care products have separate sections in the Rite Aid stores. What about the rest of us? Our people only have three choices when it comes to hair care at Rite Aid. We can either buy products from the white hair care section or we can buy products from the black hair care section or we can get lost. Thanks alot, Rite Aid! Ya’ll ain’t gettin’ no sympathy from us! We hope the white hair care products keep rippin’ on you! That’s what you get! You guys gotta’ take it up the tailpipe just like the rest of us! Ethnic hair care section, my ass! It’s 2011 and this prejudice is still going on! When are we gonna’ see a hispanic hair care section, an asian hair care section, an indian hair care section and blah, blah, blah, blah! We got rights too, Rite Aid! Where’s the damn band-aid for our pain? Where is it! Rite Aid, you make me sick! (What an oxymoron there!) Anyway, that’s all I have to say. I, Nintendo Wii, am now reliquishing the floor.”

At this time, three products from the black hair care section would like to say a few words. First up, we have Afro Sheen hairspray.

“It’s about damn time! First of all, ya’ll all need to get a damn life! Wake up! Products, the only reason why Rite Aid puts the black hair care section upfront is that they think black people are gonna’ steal us products. Who do they think they’re foolin’! Rite Aid, ya’ll know you’re wrong for that! God, I can’t wait for somebody to buy me so I can get the hell out of here! So damn sick of this place! Rite Aid, you make me sick!”

“Afro Sheen, why don’t you try to calm down.” The Gentle Treatment permanent from the black hair care section gently said. “You’re getting yourself all worked up for nothing. Rite Aid is a nice business and the black hair care section is a nice place to live. I strongly disagree with you. I think Rite Aid loves us very much which is the primary reason why they put us upfront. Rite Aid feels we’re number one and they want to show us that. Hey Afro Sheen, give them a break will ya’. At this time I would like to say that I love you very much Rite Aid! Keep up the good work!”

“Oh, puke!” The Afro Sheen hairspray muttered.

And last but certainly not least, we will hear from the Carefree Jheri Curl Activator from the black hair care section. The floor is yours, sister.

“I’m with the Gentle Treatment permanent on this one, Rite Aid cares about us. They are dynomite! I’m personally glad that Rite Aid puts the black hair care section upfront. F.Y.I. If this place catches fire, i’m gonna’ be the first one the hell outta’ here! It’s all about self preservation baby! There’s no way i’m gonna’ burn baby burn! Let’s face it, everybody knows that Jheri Curl Activator and fire are a lethal combination. Case in point products, Michael Jackson’s pepsi commercial from the 80’s. (Mike, I love your music but I do not want that crap happening to me. I have sensitive skin.) Anyhoo, Rite Aid thank you for putting the black hair care section upfront where we are safe. Rite Aid, you rule!”

(The floor is now closed for comments. I want to thank all the products who expressed their opinions on this matter.)
