All Rationals are good at planning operations, but Masterminds are head and shoulders above all the rest in contingency planning. Complex operations involve many steps or stages, one following another in a necessary progression, and Masterminds are naturally able to grasp how each one leads to the next, and to prepare alternatives for difficulties that are likely to arise any step of the way. Trying to anticipate every contingency, Masterminds never set off on their current project without a Plan A firmly in mind, but they are always prepared to switch to Plan B or C or D if need be.
Masterminds are rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population, and they are rarely encountered outside their office, factory, school, or laboratory. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Once they take charge, however, they are thoroughgoing pragmatists. Masterminds are certain that efficiency is indispensable in a well-run organization, and if they encounter inefficiency-any waste of human and material resources-they are quick to realign operations and reassign personnel. Masterminds do not feel bound by established rules and procedures, and traditional authority does not impress them, nor do slogans or catchwords. Only ideas that make sense to them are adopted; those that don't, aren't, no matter who thought of them. Remember, their aim is always maximum efficiency.
In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past.
Masterminds tend to be much more definite and self-confident than other Rationals, having usually developed a very strong will. Decisions come easily to them; in fact, they can hardly rest until they have things settled and decided. But before they decide anything, they must do the research. Masterminds are highly theoretical, but they insist on looking at all available data before they embrace an idea, and they are suspicious of any statement that is based on shoddy research, or that is not checked against reality.

Here's *MY* puff:
I put "Sideshow Bob" at about a 3c/4a curl texture, which is exactly what I am. So um yeah, it kinda does, I guess I'll call it "Sideshow Bob-Puff"! Totally random, and pointless. Thanks for reading!
Hi! I am in the process of transitioning my hair from relaxed to natural. It's been about 9 mos so far and have felt quite frustrated many, many times already. But my natural hair is very similar to yours. Urs is too cute! Keep the info coming! Thx!
Thank you! Best of luck with your transition! :)
As far as hair thickness, I am right there with ya! I have very fine hair as well, but the only time I have an issue with it is when I am wearing my hair flat ironed. I do not like to use "volumizing" conditioner only because it tends to coat (MY) hair strands, and I honestly can not see a difference after. When in doubt, I sometimes add a track or two when my hair is straight!

OK! I think I'm gonna straighten my hair in OCT for a length check..... :)
Sure! When I think of some good ones, I'll post a vid!

Any who, back to the diet. I tried to go semi- vegetarian, but that just left me weak and dizzy. I am iron deficient/ anemic anyway, but I think I'm just one of those people who thrive on protein. YES, I know you can get protein in foods OTHER than meat, but I'm lazy and don't want to do ALL THAT! Those who follow me on twitter know that I "tweet" about food a lot, and that's because I'm trying to NOT EAT ANY OF IT! :) I'll kinda start to "watch it" starting September 18th, which is exactly a month before my birthday. Thanks for reading, just some random babbling . ~sigh~

I am totally late with this, but RICK FOX is gonna be on Dancing With The Stars this season!!!! He is SO FINE (for an older man of course)! Even though he lost MAJOR points for doing what he did to my IDOL Vanessa Williams, you cant deny he is handsome! I've never watched DWTS, except for the when Kim Kardashian was on once upon a time, but that was it. Now is the time to invest in TiVo!!

Dear Heavenly Father,
Today is a difficult day. The memories are painful and some of the wounds I fear may never heal. Yet I pray you will help me to go on living for truth, firm in my hope of your salvation. May I live for you, Lord, and by doing so, be an example to my friends and family. I pray, just like Jesus, I may learn obedience through these things that I have suffered. Help me not to question why, yet even if I do, give me courage to continue to trust you. Help me take the comfort and strength you've poured into my life and use it to comfort and strengthen others who need hope.
I pray I might become a better person and help make the world a better place because of this terrible event. Thank you for the heroes that gave so sacrificially on September 11. Help me to remember their courage and learn from them. I want my life to be worthy of you Lord, so make of it what you desire, and use me to fulfill your purposes. May the evil of that day cause me and my family to work harder to do good on this Earth and to bring your light into the dark places. Help me to never stop believing in you and living my life for you.
Lord, heal all those who were crushed and broken on that day. May they come to experience your presence and know your peace.

Today, since I was in the neighborhood, I decided to break down and purchase Kinky-Curly Knot Today and some coconut oil at my local Whole Foods. A few of my YouTube subbies suggested I try these products when I first started making videos on the YT, so I figured "what the hell"!
I found both products relatively quickly, so I ran to the shortest checkout line, and the cashier happened to be a African American male. He saw the "Organic Virgin Coconut Oil" in a jar, he took a beat, and said
"What chu' gonna cook with that"? (probably trying to flirt)
I said "OH, I'm not going to cook with this; I'm going to put this in my hair".
THEN he said (rather loudly with Jim Carrey face contortions):
Should I have tried to educate him? Should I have been sarcastic? Should I make him feel stupid and retarded? Should I have lectured him?
I took a beat, then said "Its a really good hair moisturizer, you should GOOGLE it", then walked away.
I was SO mad at myself for not SAYING or DOING anything! For some reason AfricanExport, from youtube popped into my head at that moment. I wished I could have morphed into her (I <3 her, heres her YT page : http://www.youtube.com/AFRICANEXPORT) she would've most definitely "kept it real" with him!
I'm used to that from white people, or people with non curly hair, when I mention I put EVOO in my hair. But from a black dude? A "brotha"? Even if he "didn't know, understand or comprehend", I thought that was kind of insensitive of him to say and do that to an African American (Bi Racial woman, what ever, this is my blog and I don't have to be PC) woman, where African American women, in general, are overly sensitive about their hair. I know *MY* sensitive ass is probably over-reacting, but his statement seemed to have a mocking undertone, and I was "bothered" by that all day. Then again, I live in LA, and all you see are butt-length weaves here anyway, so true he probably "didn't know better". Whatever. His loss.

First off, I'm not a big sushi buff at all, I only eat two kinds of sushi rolls : The California and Shrimp Tempura Roll. Yes they are both cooked, therefore to lump these rolls into the "SUSHI" term or description is an understatement....SO, I order the Shrimp Tempura Roll, expecting it to look like this:

REALLY?!? Wow, a MILLION DOLLARS!!

Troy Polamalu’s Expensive Hair
By MONTE BURKE
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported today that Steelers’ star safety Troy Polamalu’s flowing black mane has been insured by Lloyd’s of London for $1 million. Polamalu (and his hair), of course, star in those semi-entertaining television ads for Head & Shoulders shampoo, a product that Polamalu has supposedly used for most of his life. The insurance is being paid for by the shampoo’s parent company, Procter & Gamble.
It’s a great publicity stunt. According to the Post-Gazette, Polamalu is insured for on-the-field hair loss only. The possibility of anything horrible happening on the field seems remote. If Larry Johnson’s tackle in 2006 couldn’t do it, nothing can.
Lloyd’s has pulled these stunts before. They’ve insured the legs of Betty Grable and the, um, behind of Jennifer Lopez.

|NEW YORK CITY at night|
Ever since I saw movie "Fame" and "Big Business" in the late 80's, I always told myself I would move to New York City when I graduated high school. Later came "Sex and the City", and the urge to move to NYC has been a lot stronger. Recent events in my life (within the last year) keep pointing me towards NYC, and I no longer think its a coincidence, it just may be "whats meant to be" or "in my cards". IDK, I've always been a southern Cali girl, and my family is still here, so I'm totally torn. :(
