Monday Memes: Forty Below

It's been a minute since I have done a Meme . . .

I copped this one at The Music Memoirs:

THE RULES: 10 songs that sum up your weekend . . . or were on your weekend playlist . . . and one picture that relates back. (Oh, and if you feel like it, tell us why you picked the songs you did.)

01. "Basketball" -- Kurtis Blow (The East won!)
02. "Bye" -- J Dilla (Rest In Peace!)
03. "So Sick" -- Ne-Yo (I'm not sick, but I am sick of this damn song)
04. "The Chosen One" -- Jaheim (I'm writing a profile on him)
05. "Dead Presidents" -- Jay-Z (Happy Dead Presidents Day!)
06. "Cold, Cold World" -- Carl Thomas (It's freezing up here in the Northeast!)
07. "What You Know" -- T.I. (T.I.'s new track/video is straight bangin'! Holla at me pimpin'!)
08. "Clockwork" -- Julez Santana (I gotta make this money!)
09. "Bills, Bills, Bills" -- Destiny's Child (So I can paid this heat bill, dammit!)
10. "So Lady" -- Mary J. Blige (I like to give a shout-out to all of my fine female readers out there! Holla at 'cha boy!)

And finally, I copped this one from Dragonflypurity:

Four Jobs I've Had:

01. I worked at McDonald's for four years. I actually worked my way up to Crew Chief and almost became a shift manager (the guys that were the blue uniforms).

02. I was also a line cook at an Italian restuarant for five years. I was almost promoted to Sous Chef until I decided to switch careers and become a journalist.

03. Music editor for a rap indie magazine called Beat-Down magazine for three years. This is where I met current Vibe Editrix/ multi-tasking journalist-author/ hip-hop intellectual/ blog vixen/techie and overall down-ass chick Lynne d Johnson. I could also name-drop a couple of well-known journalists that I have given birth to during my tenure at the mag -- but I won't get into all of that.

04. Now, I'm a senior editor/online content provider for a big radio company (no, it's not Clear Channel).

Four Movies I Can Watch Over And Over:
