Tameeka Time turns 2!

Two years ago on this very day I started my blog, Tameeka Time.

I am so grateful to have a place to vent and share my life with everyone.

I would like to thank all of my friends, supporters, blog readers, and everyone who comments.

This blog is very important to me and I'm very proud of it.

I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do!

I took a stroll though the park today and saw this pigeon hanging out ... enjoying the sun ..

I shook the gate (by accident) and it didn't even flinch... gangsta pigeons....only in New York....

Everyone knows that I love social sites and social apps... I recently signed up for a new social site/app.

One that deals with posting photos of food.

It's called "Foodspotting"... I'm totally excited about this one.

It's not like Foursquare where you just post your location, but you actually get to post photos of what your eating and recommend it to people in your area!

I took a screen grab of some food I posted the site... wooohooo!




If your on the site add me.

Today I went to my nearest deli to grab a juice and saw this beverage for the first time... what the hell is "neuro trim" , "neuro bliss", "neuro sleep"



After doing a lil bit of research, "neuro" is another type of energy drink.

These energy drinks are supposed to "increase high level mental functioning: better memory, alertness and concentration." while the "neuro sleep" beverage is said to "promote restful sleep and improve overall sleep quality."

Here's the site if your interested: Drink Neuro

And the marketing people behind this new drink recruited Youtube's go to hot girl from "Hot for words" check it out:

While I was walking to the train station (on my way home), I came across a man who seemed like he couldn't get it together.

He was not sleeping, his eyes were wide awake, and I just couldn't help myself...

I'm pretty excited about this particular event which is being held tomorrow.

This is his first solo show in almost 10 years.

I'm very proud to witness this.

And to make the show even more exciting,, there will be 2 DJ's and an after party...

If your looking for a good and if it doesn't rain... stop by and see some great art.

Here's the event flyer and click here for the Facebook Invite so you can find out more info...

Last night, while I was walking to class I encountered a man playing the piano and two ladies loving it ....



I heard and saw people posting pictures on their Facebook walls about random pianos around NYC but I never came in contact with one.

This art installation is called "Play me, I'm Yours". And it seems pretty cool. Here's some info if you want to check out some locations. "Play me info"

Dolls & Vampires..oh my

Sooooo it's no secret that I love vampire movies and tv shows (all except Twilight).

Here's a lil gem of a video I watched the other day on Jezebel... it filled my lil heart with joy.

I love the Sookie looking barbie doll and her accent is soooo funny...

It's been a while since I've read a book. I know it's sad to say but most of my time is spent on facebook, twitter, blogger, or my google reader.

But I've decided that I'm going to give myself a time limit and read the book Eat, Pray, Love before the movie comes out.

It's always been one of my favorite things to do. Read a book and then watch the movie based on the book.




The movie comes out on Friday August 13th... check out the trailer if you haven't seen it:

I loveeee Netflix... it's always a delight to get a new movie in the mail every other night. It's truly one of the greatest things for movie lovers.

Tonight I will be watching Daybreakers. I wanted to see this movie when it came out but never got a chance to.
I hope it's good.

Here's the trailer if you haven't seen it.




Sleepy Monday's!

Happy Sleepy Monday ya'll.
I had such a great weekend. I feel like I wasn't even home.
This weekend flew by.
I worked late Friday night, I was in Atlantic City on Saturday and on Sunday I went to
the Colombian Festival in Queens.

I'm totally sleepy today.. I feel just like this couple...

Today I spent the day in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
I had a blast with (3) other friends. It was like a mini-all girls-road trip.
The weather was perfect and so was the company.
I definitely have to go back to A.C. before the summer ends.

Tonight I am trying out a wine by Grand Bosquet. This one is a Cotes Du Marmandais. It's a red wine and it's from South West France.

It is pretty delish... you should try it.


Fighting at Burger King



Here's my new favorite video from the web. A bunch of pregnant girls jumped a lady in the parking lot of a burger king.

My favorite quotes: #1 "And I still look good" (from the lady w/ stockings and a bra)

#2 - "Them girls are pigeons and pitbulls" (from the camera man)

The Social Network Movie Trailer

According to all of these other blogs out there one of the most anticipated movies of the Fall is said to be The Social Network...

The Social Network is about the founding of Facebook and the pop culture phenomenon it created.

The release date is October 1st 2010.

Because of the name alone, I know this movie will be a hit.. even if it's not cinematically enjoyable. Everyone will simply want to watch a film about "Facebook"

The latest trailer was released yesterday and this time it's a trailer that actually has footage of the movie in it, unlike the other two trailers that were released...

Check it out... I know I'll be going to the theatres to see this flick.

Tonight I watched a well made documentary titled Once in a Lifetime. It was all about the NY Cosmo's (a New York based 1970/80 Soccer Team).




It spoke of the teams rise to fame and it's slow demise. It also spoke heavily on one of the greatest soccer players of all time; Pele.

Check out the trailer:

Last night. I had dinner at a Mexican restaurant named Benny's Burrito.

My photo of the day, is of the chilled, refreshing Tecate beer I had.



This was my first time sitting and eating in the actual restaurant.

I've ordered lunch from Benny's several times. I will definitely go back and eat here.

It was a good experience. I highly recommend any of the seafood dishes (fish tacos, salmon, shrimp entrees).

Leave Lebron Alone!


I'm not a huge sports fan in general. I used to love watching NBA basketball games (yes I was a Knick fan) but I gave up on basketball after the late 90's. Things just seemed to have gone sour.

But as of recent, I feel like I've missed out on some good players. One b-baller named Lebron James.

For the past 2 weeks it seems like he's the only basketball player in the NBA.

Why does everyone care so much about what team he's going to?

Is he paying your bills? (yes I'm talking to you,,,)

And I know 1000% about being a fan but good god,,, can this stop?

Can we just let the man decide on where he wants to play!

I am very ashamed at NY for this 30 second spot by Mayor Bloomberg. Tsk Tsk! Major.

Was my hard earned money spend on you hiring someone to shoot that crappy commercial and who did that Lebron king graphic.



STOP IT!

Leave Lebron Alone!

That's my campaign.

By the way.... who do you guys think will end up winning the World Cup? ;-)

Today was a great day! The temperature was perfect outside... I guess the heatwave is finally over... just in time for the final World Cup game this Saturday and Sunday... by the way I'll be watching the game in Astoria at the beer garden if anyone wants to join me...
Link
But besides that today I got to enjoy a delicious 1 scoop cone of Plum Crunch custard from the Shake Shack.




I love that place. I think I just love that you can get a burger and some wine in the park.

I do enjoy checking out and trying each months custard flavors. I really want to try the "blueberry custard" ... but it will only happen if I go into the city.. womp!

This month's flavors are:

Monday - Strawberry Pistachio custard
Tuesday - Sweet Corn custard
Wednesday - Boston Cream Pie custard
Thursday - Plum Crunch custard
Friday - Mud pie custard
Saturday - Blueberry custard
Sunday - Peaches n' Cream

Today I managed to watch the later half of the World Cup match between Germany and Spain.
I'm pretty shocked that Germany lost. Statistically they were supposed to win.
I guess you can never predict a winner.
Congrats to all of Spain's fans.

New Music ~ M.I.A. & Nicki Minaj



Here's a track I just heard from M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj...

Minaj is starting to grow on me... she is all over the place and she seems to be popping up on every one's track...

I heard the track on hiphopdx's site.

The track is called Teqkilla Rmx:

Hey blog readers... Happy July 1st!

I've decided to bring back "Photo of the Day" for the month of July.

I had a blast posting up pics of my every day activities back in May.

Photo # 1 - 07.01.10



I was near Columbus circle and I forgot how much I enjoy that area and how gorgeous that steel globe is.

I also forgot that Central Park is a few steps away.

I miss it.

I guess one of my summer goals will be to: "visit Central Park" again

Who want's to join me?
