My sister is guilt-tripping me for not being able to be at my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. It’s next weekend and she has ordered a cake and asked me if I would be there. But my parents said that they would like to take the family out for dinner in a fancy restaurant to celebrate.

But I’m not feeling anything for making the trip twice (at €20 for a single trip) just to get some cake.

Seriously, I love my parents and my family but I coudn’t care less about some stupid cake. It’s all about getting things lined up with my brother-in-law because he has a busy schedule and all.

But then, schedule the cake for the day of the dinner so that everyone can enjoy it.


Janelle Monáe - ‘Electric Lady’ [Official Music Video]

Janelle Monáe has shared the video for ‘Electric Lady’, the title track from her 2013 record. It’s set at a somewhat-futuristic college party and features cameos from T.I., Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, T-Boz, Monica, Kimbra, Joi, choreographer Fatima Robinson, and Monáe’s mother (at the beginning), among others. Per the press release, Monáe “took the opportunity to celebrate several ‘Electric Ladies’ in her life.”

So much love for Janelle!
