Get Yo'self Together Thu, 10 Jan 2013 23:01:55 +0000 en hourly 1 You really need to get out more. Sun, 26 Jun 2011 01:59:14 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Margo “I had no idea Spanish was spoken in the US” Howard,

Margo Howard Tweet

I’m truly confused as to how you had no idea that Telemundo was an American station, I know here in Chicago, I see the news trucks out when somethings going on around town. Maybe that doesn’t happen where you’re from. But there are Hispanics there right. And even if it was a company that broadcast only to Mexico and you had some magic satellite dish where you could view it too, why wouldn’t they be interested in what’s going on in other countries, the same way that we watch the news about things happening in Greece, Japan, Israel, etc. The fact that you can chalk up an entire channel to just soap operas is quite disturbing seeing as most of the major TV stations in the US also play several soap operas over the course of a day (although that will be coming to an end soon for ABC). I don’t think your mother Ann Landers would have approved.

Thank goodness for Alba Mendiola for setting the record straight, here Alba have a Has It Together Award (been giving those out a lot lately) for handling the situation with grace and tact. Alba politely let her know that Telemundo is an American based company and that they’ve been reporting the news IN THE US of A for 25 years, and she’s been doing it for 10.

Alba schooling folks who need it.

Alba schooling folks who need it.

Some folks were calling you racist, I don’t think you’re racist, just an uninformed victim of white privilege. “Why would those Mexicans be interested in our politics, when all they do is watch soap operas all day.” So please Margo, get some culture in your life and Get Yo’self Together!

Nothing worse than an educated fool! Thu, 23 Jun 2011 17:45:43 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Whoo lawd, I’m gon get the good stuff out of the way first. The train conductor in this clip gets a Has It Together Award, she kept calm, cool, and collected, and remained professional even after this crazy woman touched her. A lesser person would have mopped the aisle with her.

Dear Hermon “I don’t like authority” Kaur Raju,


Sit yo monkey ass down somewhere and act like you have some sense. You over here yelling about how many different schools you’ve been to and how educated you are is not convincing anyone of those points. An educated person rarely has to tell another person that they are educated. It should be apparent from the way they carry themselves. Obviously you have no home training because even if you weren’t being that loud and obnoxious and spewing obscenities (which I doubt), all you would have had to do when asked to be quiet is say…..Ok, sorry about that, and move on with your life. Not go on some tirade about how you’re not a hoodlum, and how educated you are. Standing up here yelling about how great you are like you solved the mysteries of the universe or something. So here have a seat in the corner, and from now on ride your bike to work. Or do you even have a job, because your LinkedIn account sure didn’t list one. Although I’m sure because of how unfair the world is you’ll probably get an excellent job and make 10 times the amount of money I will. UGH.

If you end up on Celebrity Apprentice because of this I’m going to be pissed. Get Yo’Self Together!

Ernestine Shepherd - Check out those guns!

Dear Ernestine “I Rock Buff & Stuff With My Abs Of Steel” Shepherd,

Bravo! You look amazing! Thanks for providing yet another example of “black don’t crack.” Your story I’m sure has inspired so many people. You’ve even inspired me to get into some other shape other than round. For those of you who haven’t heard, Ernestine is currently the Guinness Book World record holder for oldest female bodybuilder. She’s 74 years old, and has obviously aged like a fine wine.

Ernestine is a grandmother who has been married for 54 years, and the article said that her husband makes all her meals for her and runs her errands so she can train, if that ain’t sweet, supportive, and loving I don’t know what is.

Ernestine Shepherd & Husband - Aren't they adorable?

Ernestine Shepherd & Husband - Aren't they adorable?

Mrs. Shepherd also teaches fitness classes at her local church & community centers. So not only has she gotten herself together, but she’s helping others get themselves together too. So here’s to you Mrs. Shepherd, you get a Has It Together Award!

Loudest Public Transportation Conversation EVER! Sun, 12 Jun 2011 05:43:53 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Random “I don’t have an inside voice” Stranger,
This is a first on the Get Yo’self Together Blog, I’ve never had to put a non-celeb/non-politician on blast like this. But you sir, sir, SHUT UP! I can’t believe that you sat your ass on this train and talked that loud about that many triflin’ stereotypical topics. You should be ashamed of yourself!

Number one it had to be about 900 degrees outside. Too damn hot to be talking loud, and there were at least 10 people on the train who were also in the same state of disbelief as I was. I mean DAMN! I’m pretty sure I gave you about 10 dirty looks that you were oblivious to.

I must admit that I did laugh a few times between you being entirely too excited about cheap chicken and someone being bust in the head with a 40oz bottle and a crate, but that was more laughing at and not with, seeing as you didn’t seem to find these situations humorous. Pimps and prostitutes, I mean just too much. I had to leave the train. I think you got Lakeysha Beard beat, so sir, once I talk to the proper athorities, you will be relieved of your phone in public places privileges, until you of course show that you can GET YO’SELF TOGETHER!

So readers, without further ado, the first official GYT video!

Keep your frankfurter in your pants dammit! Thu, 09 Jun 2011 08:07:25 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Representative Anthony “Bird Chest Ooops was that a @ instead of a D?” Weiner,

Nasty Self!

Nasty Self!

What the hell is wrong with you? I mean you’re last name is Weiner, and it’s not even pronounced whiner, so that puts a lot of pressure on you from the start I’m sure, because some people haven’t gotten past 4th grade in their minds. So for you to have this big of a public showing of your own wiener is just like slicing your leg open and jumping in a pool of rabies infested sharks. (I don’t think sharks can get rabies, but if they could, that’s exactly what you did).

And to top it all off, you’ve only been married a split second. Annnnd you’re talking about that not only did you send this stupid picture, but you’ve had at least 6 other online relationships “that your wife knew about”. Reading about your story and background, I was like this is wonderful, a Jew and a Muslim in love and married, and even in the same filed, what a wonderful story. How can you go and do that to her.

Oh and don’t even get me started on the gum chewing single mom, that came forward to spill her guys about your little virtual fling. Miss ma’am, why are you on national government chewing gum during an interview? Also why are you flirting and carrying on with a married man, shouldn’t you be focused on your child? What’s she going to think when she gets older and looks back and old dusty YouTube videos of you? Is that how she should act when she gets older? UGH! What about the children!

And speaking of children, now it comes out that your wife is pregnant, I know she has to be extra super duper pissed right about now. Now she’s definitely stuck with you. No wonder she’s in Africa with Hillary, maybe she’ll find a nice guy there who won’t be a douche.

Mmmmhm blame the geeks.

Mmmmhm blame the geeks.

Now see, had all this happened, and you actually admitted to it when it first occurred, I probably wouldn’t be writing this letter to you. But noooo, that would be too much like right, you had to go and blame a hacker, and lie for an entire week.

I first saw this video while shelling out 104 dollars for my stupid license plate renewal. (I actually kinda believed you for a second).

Before holding a sad press conference and saying, um yeah I did it, and yes that was my Weiner wiener in the picture. And now Megan is talking about you even sent some nekkid wiener pictures, seriously? You didn’t think that you would ever get caught? I guess at least you didn’t sleep with them (I hope that’s true).

And then it gets even deeper, you’re also messing around with a porn star too virtually. (Bet so many guys dream of that.) But then you try to coach her to lie for you. Sheesh, now there’s going to be an investigation to see if you broke any laws. I think if you didn’t for instance let your PR people coach the porn star, then you can keep your job, but if you did break the law then you need to get to stepping. And at least your not a huge hypocrite like those who are all about dictating family values and preserving the “sanctity of marriage” while doing all types of nasty stuff, far worse that what you’ve done so far. Tapping on bathroom floors, just nasty. But anyways, I think that Huma needs to deal with the rest of this. Of course now hussies are going to be coming out of the woodwork to put your business on front street. I hope you don’ t have any overlap with Tiger’s hoes. I really hope Huma makes you miserable for a while, if she does decide to forgive you. So sir, please take a moment to GET YO’SELF TOGETHER! Please don’t let anything else crazy come out so that I have to write you another letter!

Lakeysha Beard, 16 hours, SERIOUSLY!? Fri, 20 May 2011 23:56:54 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Lakeysha “I Got Lots of Rollover Minutes” Beard,
I have heard your story and just have a few questions to ask of you.

  1. Did your phone get so hot that you thought about getting off of it during the 16 hours you were on it? Because that happens to me sometimes, after maybe 35 minutes my phone will start to singe my eyebrows, and that’s when I get off of it.
  2. Were you hoarse when you were ejected from the train?
  3. Who in the HELL were you talking to? Adult Hotline? A party line? Miss Cleo? A deaf person? Friends do not let friends get put off the Amtrak for not wanting to be the last one to say goodbye. I will admit that once upon a time I have been on the phone for at most 8 hours. I was probably in high school, you’re 39.
  4. When they first made the announcement that phone’s weren’t to be used in the quiet cars did you think, “Well they must mean those other kinds of phones, but not my phone.”?
  5. What the hell were you talking about? Global warming, Bin Laden, The Real Nicole Brown Simpson Killer? I really want them to interview someone who can tell us what her side of the conversation was about. It would be terrible if it turns out her phone wasn’t even on and she was just pretending to have friends.
  6. Can you explain exactly in what way you felt disrespected, I really would like to hear your side of the story?
  7. Oh and lastly what’s in that plastic bag, I’m just curious

Sincerely hoping you don’t call me and use up all my minutes,

For those of you who haven’t heard the story yet, our dear friend Lakeysha Beard was riding the Amtrak from Oakland, CA to Salem, OR in a designated “Quiet Car” and decided that she was exempt from being quiet and talked on her phone according to passengers from the time she board the train, until approximately 16 hours later when they had to stop the train about 20 minutes away from Salem to have police escort her off the train. Seems a passenger finally told her that she wasn’t allowed to talk on the phone in that car and she got into a verbal altercation with them. At least they stopped the train to put her off, I think I would have just slowed down. Check out the video below. I love how the police officer is pointing as if to tell her to go sit in the corner.

Now she needs a doggone whoopin’. I don’t understand why she just wouldn’t move to another train car. This train left Oakland at 10pm, which means she yapped alllll night!

Now I ride the el to work, and it’s about a 45-60 min trip each way. On the dreadful days when I leave my headphones at home and am forced to listen to people’s inane conversations both with each other and on their cell phones, I get quite frustrated. I’m pretty sure that I would not have made it anywhere near 16 hours. After about 2 hours one of us would have gotten off that train one way or another one. I can’t wait to hear more of her side of the story, since she felt “disrespected” and seems to not understand why she had to be escorted off. I just don’t understand why she wasn’t put off hours ago. If I was a passenger I would have been doubly pissed that now I have to wait for them to get her off the train when I’m only 20 minutes away from my destination. Shooooooo.

Friends don’t let Cheetah Girls sing songs about date rape & Roofies. Sat, 30 Jan 2010 20:12:55 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Girl from 3LW/Cheetah Girls with the “peech inspediment”,

So glad you got that fixed, kinda, but I have to ask, “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!!” How can you go from being a Disney Princess, to a hoe who enjoys date rape? For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about check out this new song by Kiely Williams called Spectacular. Can we say Hot Gobbich?

Here are the lyrics if you can’t manage to sit through the whole song here are they lyrics, I’ve highlighted the relevant ones:

Last night I was drunk
I don’t remember much

But what I do constant pictures
That’s how gone I was
but he was tall and he was buying
So I gave him a trying
Said he was built like a stallion
And the man wasn’t lying

Last I remember I was face down
Ass up, clothes off, broke off, dozed off
Even though I’m not sure of his name
He could get it again if he wanted
Cause the sex was spectacular
The sex was spectacular (repeat 3x)

So it was the morning after
I couldn’t get home faster
Doing the walk of shame
In the same clothes from yesterday
I think he pulled a track out
When he was blowing my back out
What was I drinking
I can’t believe I blacked out


You can say what you want but
You can call me a slut but

What he did to me last night felt so good
I must have been on drugs
I hope he used a rubber
Or I’mma be in trouble

Promise I don’t remember
Except for
Give it to me, give it to me
Ooh baby what a ride ride
Oh ride ride
So smooth like it beats
I like the heat
Ooh baby what a night night
right right

Cause the sex was spectacular
The sex was spectacular (repeat 3x)

Kiely Williams Get Yo'self Together! If this song isn’t advocating date rape I don’t know what is. I’m all for people not being role models and just helping themselves, but in reality we all know that folks (young and old) look up to celebrities. Just look at all these people wearing these lace-front weaves with bangs like Nicki Minaj. Ew. So this is teaching girls that it’s okay to get drunk, fuck a guy you don’t know, not use protection or birth control, and then brag about it to the world. Hm. Something seems to have went terribly wrong there. Now in doing some research I realize that Kiely didn’t write the song, Shanell from Young Money penned these, um, lyrics. She gets the GYT stamp too. So great Kiely didn’t write them, but damn did she read them before she decided to sing it?

If your ears aren’t done bleeding, check out her other song “Make Me A Drink”.

So Kiely get some self esteem and GET YO’SELF TOGETHER!

Fuh real, fuh real,

Doing it again in 2010! Sun, 10 Jan 2010 02:29:43 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear readers,
Sorry I’ve been gone for so long, Dianne got swept up in all kinds of nonsense, and sooo many people got away with not being urged to GET THEMSELVES TOGETHER, in 2009. Yeah I’m talking to you Tiger, you showed your Cablasian ASS in 2009, why on earth would you get married. I’m broke and I don’t want to get married, I’d think rich people would be trying to protect those assets, especially those who are “addicted to sex”.

But no more slacking, I’m back on top of things and will be pointing out all those that need to get it together this year. So don’t try to hide, instead act like you have some sense and maybe help out some other folks. You just may get the Has It Together Award.

Seriously? It’s 2000 m’fin 8! Wed, 13 Aug 2008 06:25:29 +0000 Dianne Vonwhooseeay Dear Spanish Olympian Basketball Players,
Racist Spaniards GYTWTF?! You guys are the most blatant and rude racists I’ve seen in a while. I mean on top of being racist, how can you have the balls to go to someone else’s country and be so ignorant and rude. When I saw this picture, I was like unbelievable! The fact that this is being used as an advertisement for a courier company which sponsors Spain’s Basketball Federation makes me wonder what the values are of both the courier company and the basketball organization. Even if the Chinese aren’t offended I’ll be offended for

them, if they talk about one group, they’ll talk about them all. It is 2008, this kind of foolishness should have been over decades ago, but at the same time I shouldn’t be suprised because look at how you treat your own black soccer players. Shameful. And really, the slanty eye thing, how old are you guys 12? For all those people who think, oh that’s not offensive, she’s too sensitive, it was just a joke, wait until your group is targeted next. Remind me not to take my black ass to Spain.

Read a damn book, and get some cultural awareness,

What are you doing in front of this little boy? Who are you letting him hang around. Either he’s watching the wrong movies, or he’s in the wrong environment. I mean more info
