I'm That Type Of Guy

I'm That Type Of Guy - L.L. Cool J

You're the type of guy that can't control your girl
You try to buy her love with diamonds and pearls
I'm the type of guy that shows up on the scene
And gets the seven digits, you know the routine
You're the type of guy that tells her, "Stay inside"
While you're steady frontin in your homeboy's ride
I'm the type of guy that comes when you leave
I'm doin your girlfriend, that's somethin you can't believe
Cause I'm that type of guy

You're the type of guy that gets suspicious
I'm the type of guy that says, "The puddin is delicious"
You're the type of guy that has no idea
That a sneaky, freaky brother's sneakin in from the rear
I'm the type of guy to eat it, when he won't
And look in the places that your boyfriend don't
You're the type of guy to try to call me a punk
Now knowin that your main girl's bitin my chunk
I'm the type of guy that loves a dedicated lady
Their boyfriends are borin, and I can drive em crazy
You're the type of guy to give her money to shop
She gave me a sweater _kiss_ thank you, sweetheart
I'm that type of guy

I'm the type of guy that picks her up from work early
Takes her to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and breakfast
You're the type of guy eatin a tv dinner
Talkin about... "Goddamn it, I'ma kill her"
I'm the type of guy to make her say, "Why you're illin, Bee?"
...You're the type of guy to say, "My lower back is killin me"
...Catch my drift?
You're the type of guy that likes to drink Olde English
I'm the type of guy to cold put on a pamper
You're the type of guy to say, "What you talkin bout?"
I'm the type of guy to leave my drawers in your hamper
I'm that type of guy

I'm that type of guy
You know what I mean?
Check it out...

T-y-p-e g-u-y
I'm that type of guy to give you a pound and wink my eye
Like a bandit, caught me redhanded, took her for granted
But when I screwed her, you couldn't understand it
Cause you're the type of guy that don't know the time
Swearin up and down, "That girl's all mine"
I'm the type of guy to let you keep believin it
Go 'head to work, while I defrost it, and season it
I'm that type of guy

I'm that type of guy

Old school L.L. Gotta love him. He's as hot now as he was back then when this song came out.

Hemingway I recently was rereading a book I bought years back called Eat Right 4 Your Type. The basic premise of the book is that your blood type holds the key to optimal health, physical strength, and mental health.

I found out years back that I am a Type A. So I looked over at the various food lists to see what the book calls highly beneficial, neutral, and avoid for my type. I wasn't surprised to see foods such as beef, bacon, and cashews among other foods on the avoid list. But I was highly dismayed to see foods like crab, lobster, and shrimp on my avoid list. So I dismissed the diet as malarky since there's no way I was going to give up my seafood.

Recently though, I've been curious about rereading the book again.

I particularly honed in on the exercises recommended for Type A. Unfortunately lifting weights wasn't on the list (which could explain why despite going to the gym 4 days a week, I still don't have abs of steel like LL Cool J...*LOL*). According to the book, conventional exercises can cause excess stress to the immune system and over time weaken it. The recommendations were exercises that provide calm and focus. Exercises such s Tai Chi, Hatha Yoga, martial arts, dance, low impact aerobics, and even stretching are suggested. I did try some yoga early last year in the quest for more flexibility and I admit yoga's a lot harder than I thought it would be. Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to try it again. If the exercise claims are true, there goes my Bally's membership. *LOL*.

I may even try a Type A diet for a week or two to see if there's some theory in the claims. I know blood type is probably only one factor of many in determining how we respond to the foods we eat, but maybe blood type does play a role.

Has anyone ever tried eating for your blood type?

But I won't think about trying it until June sometime since my parents will be visiting me for a week starting tomorrow. I may post one more entry tomorrow before going to pick them up but if not, I hope everyone has a happy Memorial Day, which officially kicks off the summer season for me. Summer can't get here soon enough. Woo hoo!
