My Ancestry And Me

I took an ancestry test two weeks ago and got them back the day before Pride! I'm....

West African


South and Central African



British and Irish



Scandinavian


Iberian


South Asian



Southeast Asian


Native American



I knew about the African and South + Southeast Asian side of me that I gathered from family reunions and my grandma, but I was surprised to see a lot of British, Irish, Scandinavian, and Iberian in there! So fascinating! It was worth every penny to do this because the results are pretty priceless!

An Evening With Jimmy Fallon

Spending an hour this evening with Jimmy Fallon at the Paley Center was soo much fun! He had me in tears laughing over his Prince stories, like how obsessed Prince was over wanting to play ping pong with Jimmy and how crazy and weird that ping pong match was, his rehearsal with Barbra Streisand where she was so nervous that she bumped her nose into the mic and it fell, and how Obama was so cool that other than that they really didn't have time to rehearse, he didn't need a rehearsal because Obama was just that good. I was surprised how much he discussed in just an hour, but I learned so much about The Roots as people (QuestLove and Tarik are such awesome dudes), the whole process of how they make The Tonight Show happen from the writing, theme song, guests, setting the tone, etc. Thank you Jimmy for such a fun, chill, and amazing night, and thank you for the autograph, you're the best! ♥
