GB blog has a YT channel!

17 Jul

If you know me you recognize I love a good visual.  If you know me you also understand I am a human hibernator of sorts.  I would often tell my mother before she passed that I would love to be a hermit, puttering away in a cabin off the grid.  She did not agree with that lifestyle goal of shutting myself off from the world so it was a dream never realized.  As of late I haven’t had the luxury of the private cabin and escape from crushing adulthood responsibilities and chaos of the world, but I have been allowed a form of solace seeking and focused attention to many of my passions.

One could call me a neglectful blogger but I see myself as an expansive blogger funneling creative energies and projects into short videos.  Since my first upload about two years ago, a promotional video for my first erotic novel, I realized I could do more with the platform to let viewers and readers see the brains behind the books.  It has been a fun outlet and I have enjoyed putting my personality and artistic spin on edits and uploads. Come visit me at the Gypsy Bouche channel on You Tube.  You will find the same delicious random ramblings there as I cook, share meals, eat, and discuss crafts, music, media, family, and share stories from my life!  I also encourage you to like some videos, comment about yourself, share with others, and subscribe to my channel.  Hit the bell for notifications too so you wont forget to come through and visit for a moment-I promise not to keep you long or overwhelm you with uploads! As a creator (and viewer) I know it is time consuming to watch your favorite youtubers, support other small creators as we all try to grow our audiences, and make content for our own sites while taking care of our daily lives.  I appreciate the support and hope that you find the channel enjoyable as I work to evolve production and content; more videos and book projects are in the works.

I will soon be announcing a new audio book project and having a raffle for promo codes to get your FREE copy for a listen.  This project has allowed me to  showcase my voice and acting talents that I normally only utilized during story time when I taught pre school.  I enjoy books, reading, and giving life to the words and hope to keep expanding and growing the Gypsy Bouche brand further than I could ever imagine through these ventures!

Thank you for your follow-ship, fellowship, and friendship–see you there!

Welcome to the channel and why it’s so randomly focused LOL! We’ve got some good projects in the works and being birthed heehee. How do you feel about these ‘slurs’ being used BY the people the words were intended against, in their own flavorful vernacular?👀? 👁P.S. Watch the HULU original series “Shut Eye” and let me know what u think!! We love it in this house and it’s on its second season already💕 As always please COMMENT on a vid (I always need something answered)LIKE, SUBSCRIBE, and SHARE or just share your thoughts!!

Longwinded & long distance support of Texas after Hurricane Harvey.

My family lived in Texas for over fifteen years, while my brother and a few cousins remain in a few of its cities.  Many of my sorority sisters are from and have families still in Houston while old classmates and neighbors have roots in Louisiana.  Countless family members have visited us there over the past years, and I still identify the state as a second home town.  They say once you live in Texas your a Texan but I can never forsake my Midwest roots!  However, the Lone Star state, south, and more countries are suffering form hurricanes or flood damages.  I don’t doubt many kin  and more may have to eventually evacuate among the others.
These disasters have put a charitable vision into our minds that has always been in our hearts.  Currently a small endeavor has been started, Hospitality Bags for the homeless, where we carry a few lunch sacks in our vehicles with non-perishable food, drink, and snacks to hand out if we see an individual or family in need as we do many times at traffic lights or shopping center intersections.  Eventually with donations we can add more to the bags like wipes, toiletries, small undergarments, etc.  My cousins and I, collectively as G’Mas Kitchen, are still hoping to set out to fill a small local void left by any emergency food programs that had funding or the entire programming cut.  Now, we are also dreaming of expanding to collecting clothing and goods for donation: later, as well as providing lunches every other Saturday for children at the church and once we solidify schedules having donated items, food, and provide information for any services needed by individuals or families in need.  For any neglected elderly, homeless, victims of tragedy or the floods/ hurricanes we want to be able to send items and care packages and, if you happen by our Midwest way, to have a center where we have experienced and practicing social workers, child care professionals, and home health care workers in the family available for advice and support.
Hopefully, after the enough planning, crowd funding, and getting all affairs in order our dream is to get The Lord’s Kitchen back up and running at Progressive Baptist in addition to or as our own charitable entity, G’Mas Kitchen In memory of our beloved grandma Dorothy!  We would love to be able to do and provide more in time and efforts.  In the meantime, if you would like to donate or help, please contact at emaliewalker@yahoo.com or make a donation to the PayPal account established for the Hospitality Bags for the homeless at: paypal.me/HospitalityHostess.
Thank you, prayers, & more information to come ❤

Horrifically hilarious procrastination.

27 Aug

*Published yesterday on my author blog, Moxie Hemp Papyrus. #postaweek

There are a great number of things that occupy my interest and time away from writing.  At the moment it is a binge of multi-medias (horror movies, Netflix, YouTube, and televison shows), auditions, blogs and web projects for the Gypsy Bouche channel AND Mikes’ contracting business, or taste testing recipes.   Recently my cousin and I made another candle order for summer 2017.

This birthday bundle was well received and the ladies didn’t even want to burn them! Let me state, ‘yes, you can burn the candles, if you choose otherwise they’re still good tchotchkes , and keep most of the integrity of the design.  The primary heat is concentrated toward the middle:)’.  Those that do (usually the wax crystals), can be replace for half the cost of the original purchase!


The candles are long burning: Mike left one burning in the store after closing and it was there burning two days later!  NOT that I am advocating leaving burning candles from any source unnatended ever!  However, this accidental brain fart provided a wealth of information about the products attributes heehee.
Now that we’re back, and before we head back out to the Lou again, we’ve had some hang time and what did we stumble upon?  The return of Raven Baxter on Raven’s Home!!!  When he’s not cutting up, me and the little one watch and while we both laugh I often catch him watchin me crack up more than him!  Raven TICKLES me with those faces and reactions, I am reliving That’s So Raven moments as she and Chelsea try their hand at adulting.  I like getting to see the friends grown up and the way they are doing it, but I hate they sent Devon away and hope that’s not the final storyline on him!  P.S. Spoiler Alert* I believe and am churning with curiosity now, that locked in the vault, Chelsea confessed to sleeping with/kissing Devon “on international waters, so it doesn’t count!?”
As far as my adult viewing habits, I am also enjoying season two of Insecure it’s Hella Germane in regard to the plight of single black professionals and drifters!  I just have to say here, because there are plenty great breakdown/reaction videos (especially by @Jouelzy) about episodes, Issa should never have clarified to Daniel that they were just f*k buddies after he comes to her rescue after her car accident!!!  That’s a rule breaker when you’re supposed to be mastering the hoe-tation LHH!  Marlon is also a winner in this household!  His antics are well timed and I love the dynamic of the show and adore Essence Atkins in everything 😀  Shout out Half & Half!!
What I’m waiting on now are the sets filming like Blackish, Grownish(!), American Housewife, The Middle ( sadly their ninth and last season), Broad City, Stranger Things, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (even though the wait is until 2018 but that’s only five months away!ugh!), American Horror Story Cult.  I did fall off on Roanoke but it’s cool, they still captivate me with their theatrics, costuming, character arcs, and lineage connecting the stories.  If you can believe it POPPED CULTURE has compiled a complete timeline of overlapping seasons if you need to see the relevance: which I did and loved:) Also, Disjointed on @Netflix has Kathy Bates here too and the show and dispensary is a hoot!  They also deal with a soldiers post traumatic depression in a brilliant visual of short cartoons and silent comics.
Alrighty, back to break time and most importantly Dinner Time!  For the nostalgia geeks, we’re having Big Chef burgers and homemade fries:P

When people say “where have you BEEN?” things like this (and more unsaid) get in the way; there should be no hard feelings when reuniting…#letpettydie Good thoughts sis ESPECIALLY getting alone with waiting books<3

Life's Important Question: F.O.B.

I can’t believe that is has basically been half a year since I posted anything. Since then I’ve survived my first administration of TAKS as a teacher, taken and passed the dreaded PPR, completed my internship ( now I have to pay my fee for my certification and wait on my piece of paper to arrive stating that ‘I r a tichur,’ finished buying furniture for my apartment and signed a contract for next year.

Life has been a blur but I can’t say anything other than I’ve been vey blessed even when things weren’t the greatest. Like the 5 year turnover of friends, cultural frustrations, learning ugly truths about myself, have the delight of starting over yet again, being reminded o my failings, etc. But yes the clichéd terms, I’m better for it.

I’ve been productive enough to have completed most of my summer to-do list which means I…

spaghetti scramble

As I resolve to take on more responsibilities in the domicile and for the sake of the family unit, I have had to make sputtering returns to the kitchen.  With appreciation shown and told, as well as off hand kudos I gain confidence again…at what I’m good at.  Let me stop the poetics and be real! I still burned the bottom of the skillet spaghetti (but not too bad the top was unsalvageable or inedible).

So now helping me is my new love…Barilla No Boil PastaPronto pasta I call it skillet pasta cos you dump, cover with water let it cook of then add tops and sauces!  No pot or pre boil.  The second time I was distracted as usual by who knows what and forgot the liquid was going away lol.  I add diced tomatoes, oregano, basil, garlic, scramble ground beef (ma’s original) or scrambled pork sausage (our ghetto rigged delish remix), spinach and butter!

Here’s a list of house faves I have pleased the king and prince with: Mimi’s Famous Meatballs (his name not mine :P), pancakes from scratch or a box,  Tex-Mex tacos and nachos, lasagna,pork chops (he flipped when I coated in white cornmeal and honey mustard-he ain’t used to that flashy meat lhh), and Brown sugar cherry glazed salmon and semi-salad Nicoise (no anchovies)!  Yeah I saved that fancy meal for last and his first.  That’s what got him and he said he ain’t seen it like that since!!  Hey I just let him handle his kitchen until he needs me-I’m second string cook for rainy days but I’ll bust ya guts with the yumminess!!!

P.S.!!!!!slowly turn into this hotel-YAY!!!lady-gaga-ahs-hotelSo who dat coming to American Horror Story Hotel!?! Mother Monster ❤
