Saturday Seven (7 Things I'm Feeling Right Now)


1. Movado Watches
My wife bought me a Movado watch for Christmas a few years back and this remains my favorite watch.

2. Enterprise Car Rental
Anybody who reads my stories on "Escapades" knows that I love to drive and that all of my characters drive great cars. Big ups to the Enterprise car rental office in my neighborhood... they not only have reasonable rates (half price on the weekends) but, the best cars and an exclusive deal with the BMW dealership in the next township over, which means I have a shot at renting one of the new ones at anytime. My actual car is 13 years old so, Enterprise is a great escape for me at times. The customer service is great and they even drive me home or to wherever my car is parked when I return their cars.

3. IHOP - West Philly
The one in my neighborhood, where I get great service. I know all the waiters, waitresses, and cooks there and they know how to keep a two-year old occupied, unlike another IHOP I went to out in the suburbs (see my post "Pancake Flip!" for details).

4. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for Men
I like to smell good when I'm out and about or when I'm just with my wifey. I discovered this cologne this summer and I've been hooked on it ever since.

5. The Boondocks
Still the best political satire out there today for my money. I loved the comic strip and I love the cartoon.

6. OKAYPLAYER.COM
My favorite site for entertainment news in the neo-soul and hip-hop world.

7. Naked Chocolate Cafe - West Philly 24/7
Hot and hip new coffee shop with cupcakes, chocolates of all kinds, muffins (fresh baked at that!), and an assortment of cookies. The "maverick" of all bloggers really loves this spot in the morning, with its Cuban coffee.
Have a great weekend everybody!

Nice list, I like Movados too. I keep saying I'm gonna get one but I talk myself out of it only to spend the same amount of money on a bunch crap I probably will never use. *lol*

I meant to tell you I was in the Philly airport laying over Monday and the Philly airport folks (men) made me feel very Beyonce! *lol*

I may have to really come and check the city out, my friends big bro just moved up there. So really I have no excuse not to take in the city and that coffee shop when I do. I love Cuban coffee.

LOL @ maverick of blogging!

Good Morning,

When I saw the title.. I was thinking feeling 7 different ways at one time...that doesn't sound stable...LOL

But I see where you are going.. you are always feeling the IHOP in your neighborhood Keith. My BFF wants a movado watch but of course we don't have it like that but if I get my hands on the winning lotto numbers it's hers...LOL

go B.

but its all good...lol

I love me some okayplayer too!

LadyLee said...

Now, I always see the "Enterprise, we'll pick you up" commercial here in Georgia, but we have yet to find one that will. They always got excuses.

Good to see that there is a city where the slogan rings true!

Good list!

I had a movado.. lost it.
i only rent cars from enterprise. B/c they are the cheapest reputable company.
Love the Boondocks

Sunflower said...

I love me some Okayplaya.com too.

Angie B. said...

I like Movados too, but I'm not presently rocking one..a little
pricey for my tastes right now.

Lisa said...

Great List Keith...I am so feeling the "Naked Chocolate Cafe" I've been there a couple of times.

Toni said...

Nice List...You've got me wanting to go to IHOP and get some Pancakes
right now.-lolol.

tate2 said...

I like driving too..The idea of renting a car just to drive something new once in awhile sounds cool.

James Perkins said...

Keith,you're a man that certainly lives in his own world...a fun world, but your own world never the less.

Simon Bastion said...

I'm feeling everything on your list Keith, except that cologne. I
have never heard of it before. I will be on the look out for it.

Grover Tha Playboy said...

I haven't done the car rental thing
but I could see somebody doing it for the reason you stated..You rockin a Movado?? Go ahead big baller..I knew you was a true playa like that-lolololol...And I share your love of nice cars too.
We right there with ours bruh.

Used to work for Enterprise, at one point I thought I'd never leave, but my personal politics got in the way of all that. They are still a good company.

Boondocks - I was watching Regina King in This Christmas and thought of that show this weekend. I've always been a fan. It started with the books. Long before he got syndicated.

I may have to check out your cologne pick. Since you are all the way in Philly it won't matter if I piggy back.

CurvyGurl said...

Hey Keith! Thanks for the heads up on okayplayer.

Mizrepresent said...

Love your list, but when it comes to rentals, i always go for the cheapest!

FREEDOM said...

That's a Good list!

Shorty said...

Left you something on my blog...don't feel obligated but I wanted to share!

Thoughts of a Southern gal said...

I love The Boondocks. I'm waiting on new episodes of the cartoon. Everytime I see the Always commercial with Regina King's voice, I chuckle. Because all I hear is Riley talking about tampons.

The Naked Chocolate Cafe-now that's something I can get behind.
