TC's True (c) Hollywood Stories Vol.2- Prince

I remember the time I met Prince. yes, Prince, the Artist. The same man who gave the world hits such as "Purple Rain," "Diamonds & Pearls," and "Little Red Corvette." I was working at a popular DC Nightclub at the time, and I was a host on the 1st floor. One of the managers asked me to be a waiter/server for the top floor for the evening because all of their wait staff had called out, and I was the only other person who knew the system at the time. I agreed to do it, not knowing who I would be waiting on. As I approached the penthouse, I saw two tall, beautiful women sitting beside what looked to be a small pretty lady with a fabulous hairstyle. That was no lady, it was PRINCE! Jamie Foxx said on one of his stand up DVD's that you are NOT to look directly into Prince's eyes when you meet him. Unfortunately I did. I didn't want to seem like I was overly excited to meet him, so I calmly walked on over to his table, introduced myself, and asked was there anything I could get them. Instead of answering me, he just stared at me like this: Image and video hosting by TinyPic
At that moment I didn't know what to do. I froze. it was just awkward silence for about 2 minutes while I searched my soul and my manhood. I eventually snapped out of it, and offered to get them something to drink while they looked at the menu. The two females asked for Cosmopolitans. I looked at Prince, and said, "You don't drink alcohol, do you?" Once again, he didn't answer me, just looked at me like Image and video hosting by TinyPic After gritting on me, he responded, "Who told you that?" in the deepest voice I had ever heard in my life. He ordered a bottle of Grand Marnier, I brought it to his table, and I left them for about 5 minutes. I didn't understand what had just happened, my heart was beating really fast and I felt dizzy. I immediately recited MC's Ren's verse from NWA's "Always Into Somethin" and then dropped down to do several pushups. I returned to the room to take their order, and walked in the middle of a sho nuff PAR-TAY. Prince had one of the lady's arms in thet air, and the other lady's thigh around his throat. When they saw me at the door, they paused, but Prince did not: he broke into a series of splits Image and video hosting by TinyPic and then stood perfectly still. The ladies put on their coats, then put his coat on him, and they headed for the door. "We're outta here, have a good night," said the deep voiced superstar. As he walked out he gave me a look that confused my life for almost 48 hours Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I looked at the table and saw that he had left money for the drinks & the bottle, and left me a $200 tip. I tried to act normal after that, but it was hard. When I got home that night I layed down in the bed with all of my clothes on and recited "When Doves Cry" lyrics over and over until I fell asleep.

Cool Christmas Gifts for Guys

It can be hard to shop for a man. They don’t lust over shoes or purses, and you really have to know a man in order to shop for him. Here are some gifts that you can give a man whether you know him or not that he will genuinely appreciate:

-Video Games: Whether it’s an actual game, a special controller, or a new cheat code; some guys will love you for life for adding to their video game experience. This is a gift that they will LOVE, but you will hate because they’ll be paying even MORE attention to the game and less to you. But still get it, tis the season!

-Auto Work: Upgrade his car radio, get his car an alignment, or even get it detailed for him. Men love their cars, so hooking his car up in any way will please him. If your man doesn’t have a car, then replace auto work with a job application.

-Porn: It’s no secret that men watch lots of porn. Nowadays women do too, so why not break the ice and give him a few good porn videos? Don’t want to be seen in the adult video store by your house? Get a thumb drive and fill it up with a bunch of porn videos. Put it in a stocking with a soft hand towel and don’t forget the petroleum jelly.

-Spa Visit: Every now and then, a guy should take a trip to the spa. Get him a Men’s package at a spa because if you don’t schedule it, he'll never go. He’ll appreciate the massage and anything else they provide in the package. You’ll get extra brownie points if you splurge for a happy ending.

-Ammunition: Nothing says I love you like a pack of bullets or shells. Ammo is getting expensive nowadays, and opening up a box to see a pack of Remingtons would make any humbug crack a smile.

-Tickets to a Sporting Event: If your Man works a lot, get him some tickets to a game, and insist that he takes his boys with him, not you. This is like giving him a much needed outing with the guys that he hardly gets to take. He’ll love you for that, plus it gives you leverage when you want him to go with you to the Opera or one of those damn Tyler Perry movies.

-BECKY: Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like some good sloppy HEAD. Give it to him until he Harlem shakes and starts breathing like he has asthma. Then let him fall asleep without bothering him. If you don’t have the ring yet, you will after this gift.

-Tech Gift: A new phone, camera, external hard drive, Slingbox, etc; Men love technology. Whatever hobbies he has, see if you can compliment them with something electrical. If all else fails, get him a new laptop. You can never go wrong with that.

-Tools: Men love tools, point blank. Waltz on over to Home Depot (eff Lowes) and shop around for your Man. This might help you out in the long run; he can’t say he doesn’t have any tools when you ask him to fix something for you!
