Well this is obviously the last post I'm putting up for year 2008...
It's been a wonderful year and getting on blogville was one of the highlights of the year!Thank you all for being so wonderful...I made friends with some beautiful people and I got to view issues through the eyes of others...I learnt...I sure did learn great life lessons and I just need to say that there are amazingly intelligent people out there...God is sure great!
Here is wishing you all an amazing 2009;may the good Lord spare our lives to see many more years on this planet earth and may we all fulfill purpose(amen)...
Now to the answer:
1) I have never been in love!
2) Fashion is my passion!
3) I get bored easily!
Well I must say it right here and now that 99.9% of you guys are WINCHES yes you are!!!...did you ask me why? well 'cos you got the answer!
Yes it is true o...I have never been in love, *some eyebrows are raised*...okay let me put this in proper context!
I have been in crush and in lust but love...never! I can go all mushy over a guy for a while...but give it time and I begin to wonder what I saw in him in the first place..so my people tell me is that one love? Of 'cos I look forward to being in love...I mean who won't???
FASHION IS ABSOLUTELY NOT MY PASSION!!!
Truth be told,I don't care about fashion per say...of 'cos looking good is good business and you're addressed the way you dress etc...But I don't go with the trend never have and don't think I ever will period!!!
Yes it's true,I get bored easily...I got a bit of wacking for this back in the days...if I'm being thought a topic I'm not interested in, all I do is switch of and let my imagination build stories in my mind! ha ha ha!!!those were the days,now I try as much as possible to be actively involved in what I'm doing otherwise...that's it,I just switch off and go to la-la land...
So that's all folks for year '08...I ma see you in '09...off to eat...xoxo

Those were the words running through my mind when I left my friend’s place…I was like:
God do you mean she’s now a statistic too?
This girl sacrificed so freaking much for this buffoon, she loved with all her heart, she gave with all her might…I know ‘cos I was there from the get go…but he still proved to be a beast…
As far as I’m concerned, you’re a weakling, regardless of what she did to you (non by the way), you had/have no right …non what so ever to raise your hands against her…
Now what makes me furious is the fact that she is pregnant with their second baby and she’s a sickler but this didn’t deter the beast from abusing his own lawfully wedded wife.
Got a call from a friend asking when last I heard from this lady…I was quite vague about it and than was when he dropped the bomb on all the happening in this gal’s life!!!
My people trust me it was freezing cold but I immediately dragged my self to see her…
The whole thing sounded like something from a naija movie…you know you hear of this things from afar and you see it happen in movies but you never in your wildest dream imagine it can happen to you or to anybody close to you…Well IT DID…and it sure hit close home…
To say I was filled with rage was an understatement…let me categorically state it here and now that any man that HITS a woman is a weakling and honestly he should be hung on a stake by the balls…that was what I felt like doing to this guy…or better still castrate him with no anaesthetics…yes I said it!!!
Did I tell you she is pregnant and she’s also a sickler…now imagine that combination…even if she committed adultery which she didn’t….she sure didn’t deserve to be treated that way…
They met back in Nigeria, she relocated to the UK for health reason, plus she was born here anyways so it just made life easier for her…
She was in the UK and he was back home, they got married, she got pregnant had their first baby in the UK ALONE…he eventually relocates to join her, she thought that will mean a better life…alas she thought wrong…he turned out to be the most irresponsible MF since kingdom come (excuse my Greek).He was an irresponsible and lazy oaf…who could talk the talk but couldn’t walk the walk…
He started abusing her psychologically and none of us her friends and family was any wiser…’cos she truly and sincerely wanted her marriage to work…and justifiably so…I mean every woman wants the “lived happily ever after” ending...but sometimes, you’ve gotta let go…if the foundation is broken, what can the righteous do…so she kept it quiet???
A while ago, they were having one of their “heated fellowships” while she was cooking, he wanted to hit her and she blocked it off by raising her hand (she was holding a knife), she mistakenly cut him…no it wasn’t a knife attack…witnesses were apparently there, but he called the police, got her arrested and charged, she apparently slept in the cell for a night!!!...for God’s sake a woman you said you loved? What kinda love is that I ask?...he later dropped the charge against her but kept taunting her with that and kept threatening her that he’ll get the baby off her and she’ll rot in jail…the abuse continued, but she covered it up well…he beat her, he raped her, reduced her self confidence/esteem and just made her feel irrelevant…
How dare you!!!! You’re a beast and shouldn’t even be allowed to leave in the zoo…you should be isolated and left to rot in the hottest part of hell alone!!!People like you turn good girls to devil and then the next good man that comes along suffers for your misdeeds…
she did the everything for the family, she was the bread winner, she took care of the baby and the home alone…this idiot just loafs around eating, watching TV, chatting on the internet and playing video games…I mean WTF!!!
She had a crises and begged him to call the ambulance for her; she eventually went to the hospital, got admitted for a while and went back home later…on getting home to rest, this beast removes the duvet from her body and pillow underneath her head and started another bout of sickening argument with her…it got so bad that he dragged her off the bed with her hair(uprooting some braids in the process)...to the living room where he started kicking and punching her…she got most of the punches on her face while busy defending(protecting) the baby in her…she eventually ran out of the house to a neighbour’s and it was this good Samaritan that was able to testify against this beast of a guy…
She had to go back to the hospital…thank God it was the same person(earlier) that attended to her…otherwise this too will probably not have seen the light of day…she was admitted and the doctor actually called the police to arrest the idiot! I saw the pictures of the bruises taken by the police and I almost broke down…
When I saw her, she looked wiser and her mind was made up…she said she doesn’t hate him, but she can’t get back with him ever again…I was very sad…I thought about it for a long time…
Why do we do this to ourselves? ‘cos am sure the writings were clearly on the wall before she married him…would you really call this love or a watered down version?
I obviously learnt from it too…some things are just basic and should not be compromised in any relationship…things like honesty and integrity…when a guy that says he loves you looks you in the eye and lies to you…clearly, there are issues there…
I eventually called the guy to talk to him…actually to blast his head off…and he goes “ahh Nolimit thanks for calling,bla bla bla,we really need to talk"(like hell we do bozo!)…his voice alone was getting me disgusted, had to get off the phone fast…told him I’ll call him back later…I can’t find it in me to do it…Please Jesus…one more time…take this wheels!!!

well I've been busy with work but that hasn't stopped me from making my usual blog rounds and I must say, I've been exceptionally lucky...or should I call it blessed this December 'cos I've been the first to comment on some of my favourite blogs:-)...hee hee hee!!!
and as per the post before this, I will surely respond to it sometime soon!
Hmmm so to the main reason I'm putting this post up...guys I found out a blogger that I know(anonymously of 'cos) is married to someone I know(in real life)!!! Yep...
Well hers was one of the blogs that inspired/encouraged me to join blogville...I mean you can't read her blog and not know that this gal has got sturves between her ears...seriously!
So there I was checking out her blog on one of dem days...and I saw this post with pictures she took in one of the countries she travelled to (by the way I reckon she's an ajala traveller!)...and I thought to myself...werreminute! those pictures look familiar...and y'all know your gurl is sharp now...so what did I do?...hee hee hee...I simply opened the facebook profile where I saw the pictures and the blog and tiled windows horizontally to see them side by side!!!
And by jove! the pictures were the same! I was like oti o...or can it be???...Naaa...I brushed it aside as coincidence but I "kept this in my heart:-)"...
For some reason, we clicked (you gotta love this gal..like I said,she's got brains!!!) and we mailed each other once in a while...then she added me on yahoo msn...now when I saw the name...I just started screaming...I was like oooo mai daysss! I couldn't even contain my excitement...I mean what are the odds of meeting someone in blogville that you happen to know...okayyyy in my case indirectly since it's the husband I know!!!...but still what are the odds!
Well I haven't met her in person, but I intend to hopefully sometime in '09 but I've seen her pictures on her husbands profile on FB and y'all just need to know that she's Kyute(cute!)...well I've been talking about no other person than...our very own ALOTED BABE!!!(Ovation plz!)

Monday, 1 December 2008
I don't know how to start this...so I'll just start!
I believe in God because I have experienced Him personally and I came to realise He is real...His love for me is unfathomable and this has been demonstrated in several aspects of my life...
At some point in my life, I decided to stop playing church and stop being your usual nominal Christian and just go all out to know Him...so I sought to discover God for me(He truly doesn't hide Himself from those that diligently seek Him)
God is real...I realised this and experienced it through different situations I went through and how were it not for his grace,I wouldn't be!
When I lost my mum many years back, He showed up as my Comforter, I don't know how I went through that phase in my life, but all I know is His grace saw me through...in retrospect, I know I never could have survived that ordeal without God on my side.
When you've been broke,bust and disgusted like I've been...then you know what it means when I saw He's been my Provider...at some point in time,I passed through a phase,I had no job and I didn't lack!Somehow...He pulled through for me...this built my faith in God in no small measure,so now when I say God is my Provider...please understand I mean it in all it's entirety
How can I not believe in a God that broke away all my insecurities, my issues...when I felt I was unlovable and undesirable, He sent strangers to show me and teach me to break away from my fears! He then planted good friends and support around me to keep me grounded...He built my confidence through His words and made me understand that I am an eagle,I was born to soar high above the clouds...
How can I not believe in a God who showed me mercy when I deserved condemnation...I can't count the number of times He came through for me when I did not in the least bit deserve it.
My sister sometimes says that God is partial to me...there's nothing and I honestly mean nothing I've asked God for that He hasn't given me albeit in His own time...but He answers...how can I not believe in such a God...that hears and responds as well...
I believe in God because I know He lives and He speaks... He uses the mundane things of life to speak to me...even obscure things are used are used as well!
He gave me hope when I was hopeless(as in proper proper hopeless)...not just hope that I will be successful on earth,but also hope that if I cross over to the great beyond today,He has prepared a place for me (and the place is real whether we believe it or not...check for peoples' experiences)...I used to think "self confidence" and determination will get me there...but these could only take me so far...
Sometimes things happen in our lives and we call it mere coincidence...God thought me to not take things like this for granted because nothing happens by chance...I learnt though His deeds in my life to make Him my "be-all and end-all"
I believe in God because he is a faithful God...even when I am faithless, He doesn't change from who He is...at a point in my life,I gave God boundaries...like God I surrender this part of my life to you...but just hold on a sec, I'll handle the other part...yet He remained faithful and kept showing me His favour....tangible ones that made me say "wow" and made me realise without a shadow of doubt that of a truth, there's a God.
...If you don't know God or have a personal relationship with Him, I think He is worth discovering and experiencing...for yourself...
YES!!! He's all that and even much more...

Hey blogville...it's Friday and I'm on a natural high...(Mondays and Fridays are usually my best days!!! hee hee hee)...
Well guess what I did yesterday...one last chance...okay I'll tell y'all...got home yesterday from work feeling very high(and I don't do drugs o! but I've just been "joyful"!)
Read Vera's blog...that was by the way 90% sane(sorry Vera had to chip that one in!) and although I was miles and miles away across the ocean from America,I was in the festive mood(fueled by her post by the way!!!) so I decided to call madam Vera ...well I quickly dialed the number before I could change my mind and the phone rang on and on...which reminds me...were you contemplating "not" picking up?
anyhues...she eventually picked up and we got talking and blogville I 'mma have to tell y'all Vera's voice doesn't sound anything like crazy...as in she's got an accent(sue me!!!hee hee hee...to be expected shey?) and she sounded really nice,friendly and funny...but not crazy!!!
And Vera it was nice talking to you...
Yeah I know this is as random as they come...have a wonderful weekend y'all
Monday, 24 November 2008
You can't change what they say about you but you sure can control what goes into you...the choice is yours...
when you know who you are...(in Christ) and the fact that you're secure in His love...it really doesn't matter...
...As a matter of fact, that is their opinion and they are entitled to it...
In the scheme of what God thinks about you,it is a minute and inconsequential issue...Chin Up!!!
Saw one of my old journals and decided to put one of them up.... I guess different people have their reasons for journaling...I journal if I'm feeling low,very high,encouraged,inspired,motivated....in summary...I journal whenever,however,wherever....
...I was probably spoken to with a negative tone or I overheard some one use negative tones to talk to another...
But the truth is...the choice is yours...YOU really DON'T have to take it!!!

Man does not live by bread alone. I have known millionaires starving for lack of the nutriment which alone can sustain all that is human in man, and I know workmen, and many so-called poor men, who revel in luxuries beyond the power of those millionaires to reach. It is the mind that makes the body rich. There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else. Money can only be the useful drudge of things immeasurably higher than itself. Exalted beyond this, as it sometimes is, it remains Caliban still and still plays the beast. My aspirations take a higher flight. Mine be it to have contributed to the enlightenment and the joys of the mind, to the things of the spirit, to all that tends to bring into the lives of the toilers of Pittsburgh sweetness and light. I hold this the noblest possible use of wealth.
The Gospel of Wealth,1889,
Was going through some very interesting biographies and came across this
You know it’s one thing to die rich and it’s another thing to actually leave a legacy that outlives you…an excerpt from his book/journal or whatever you call it got me thinking…

It's back to planet earth for moi...my head has been in the cloud since yesterday...it is managing to "float" back to shape now :-)...This oyinbo people can be funny o! no one even said much about it(the landslide win!) at my work place...but meeen I corrected that sharply!!!I made a point of going on and on abourrit....I guess that reaction was peculiar to my place of work....'cos I could see oyinbo people jubilating in other areas(places)...I may be wrong sha....
Well that is not the reason am blogging this early "momo"(morning)!...Hmmn blogville pls spread the word...I read and watched something yesterday that brought a gasp out of me...
The story is here ...but in case it is taking forever to open the page, I have copied it below(please click here...it's only a click away):
Nigerians react to naval ratings‘ assault on lady
Angry reactions on Tuesday trailed the Monday assault by armed naval ratings on a lady, Uzoma Okere, in Lagos.
All those who reacted, including human rights activists and hundreds of online readers of THE PUNCH, described the act as barbaric and called for the prosecution of the perpetrators.
The reactions came at a time when some concerned Lagosians who witnessed and recorded the dastardly act on a camcoder released its video footage to the public.
Six armed naval ratings attached to a Rear Admiral identified as Harry Arogundade, went wild on Monday on Muri Okunola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, beating and stripping the lady naked.
According to eyewitnesses, the naval ratings hit the lady with their gun butts and beat her with horsewhips.
She was accused of not quickly giving way for the naval officer‘s convoy on her way home in her Mitsubishi Colt car.
By the time the rage ended, Okere, who was forcibly handcuffed and dragged into a private residence on the street in a humiliating assault, was left with a battered face, blood-shot eyes and bruises all over her body.
She was admitted at Kamorass Hospital on Victoria Island.
As at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 98 reactions had been posted to THE PUNCH‘s website by Nigerians (both at home and in the Diaspora) who were irked by the incident, making the news item top on the list of most read stories on the website for the day.
All of them agreed that no man, no matter his social status, had the right to infringe on another citizen‘s fundamental human right.
In her reaction, the Director, Gender Development Action, Ms. Ada Agina-Ude, described the assault on the lady as a display of raw power.
In a telephone interview with one of our correspondents, Agina-Ude called on lawyers, women and human rights activists, to rally round the lady with a view to getting justice.
She said, ”My first reaction is that what type of military personnel will beat a woman to that extent because of a traffic offence, assuming she even committed it. I don‘t understand that kind of mentality.
”She did the right thing by getting a lawyer. I plead with the lawyer to ensure that the case is pursued to the end.”
Another activist, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, while describing the incident as condemnable and barbaric, said all those involved should be brought to book.
She added that it was regrettable that a Rear Admiral who should be looked up to by junior officers for direction could allow his boys to misbehave in his presence.
Also, the Deputy Director, Women Advocacy and Documentation Research Centre, Mrs. Grace Ketefe, said the naval ratings‘ action was against the dignity of a woman.
Ketefe said because of her organisation‘s belief that the perpetrators should not go unpunished; it would soon address the public and petition policy makers on the issue.
But the Nigerian Navy, on Tuesday, attributed the incident to provocation from the victim.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, the Director of Information, Nigerian Navy, Commodore David Naibada, alleged that Okere provoked one of the naval ratings when she stepped out of her car that was in front of the admiral‘s convoy and seized the horsewhip he was holding.
Naibada accused the victim of making up stories to embarrass the admiral ”who incidentally was a junior officer to her father when the duo were in the military school together.”
The video is one of the most disgusting videos of man's inhumanity to man... A friend sent it to me... and I said to myself....hmmmn "mother Africa" has come again o!...but after watching the video,I thought to myself....this is a barbaric act...a major one at that and it should be addressed...Regardless of what this lady did,they had and they still have absolutely NO RIGHT to treat her that way....Why were they so quick to strip her naked? Perverts!!!
I am glad this was experienced by a military man's daughter(no don't get me twisted)...what I mean is...she can fight on the same play ground with them and hopefully win...I hope this will teach them a proper lesson that human beings are not dogs and they ought not to be treated like one!!!
Please don't just read this and shake your head...please spread the word...it could be your sister,daughter,niece or aunty...this is absolutely NOT RIGHT.
Can somebody feel me in the house?
There is a page for this on Facebook,it is called:

Well that is the treatment that was meted out to me o...hmmmn if only they know me well...
I am not one to put my head down on the slab just like that..I no be mumu...i.e I know my onions and I'm worth every bit of it!!!(Stole this phrase from my bruva-in-law!!!)
Anyhues got to this new office...new team mates etc...Not necessarily a new job o! And I got the "new comer" treatment as I call it...
The funniest part of it all is that the people that do this are the ones with little or no authority at all in the organisation!!!lol...I guess everybody loves to map out their territory...but hey I am not here to drag levels with anybody so WTF!!!
Anyways...I've been getting the vibe from this colleague of mine. she keeps sending me stupid emails...like she knows the answer to the questions but she's testing the depth of my ignorance, stupidity or knowledge...(I'm still laffing cos she doesn't know what she's got coming)...I just can't stand ITKs(I Too Knows: it means people that think they know it all...or people that have been in one company for ever and they think as a result of this, they have every right to be in your business even if they are surbodinates and you normally don't have direct dealings with them)...
Chei see my life o!
When I get to a new place, I like to ask questions no matter how stupid it sounds...I do this not only to get the gist of my role, but also to extend an olive branch to colleagues... to let them understand that I'm here to be a part of the team...I am not perfect...I don't know it all...and I am open to constructive criticism...it works for me so I won't stop...but it seems as if this colleague doesn't understand that I have iron hands wrapped in velvet gloves!!!(And it is pink at that…but come to think of it, I am not gentle) lol...
She tested me yesterday...and meen I was smiling inwardly by the time I shredded her to pieces (slowly, deliberately and deliciously at that!!!lol)... okay no hard feelings o...by the way for those of y'all that thought i went in to war of words with her nooo.. I just went in to war of brains...sometimes you just have to point some things out "subtly" to people to show them how stupid...their question is...
The space between this next paragraph is a pause...this babe is almost getting on my last nerves...gosh she just left my desk after asking me another obvious question...that she knows the answer to...I don't know what she's getting @ but trust me...I'm up to the task...by God's grace of 'cos...
Jesus TAKE THIS WHEEL!!!(Eyes rolling backwards!!!:-)) but I can't believe something like this is bringing out my creative juice sha...hee hee hee...

Well this is as random an update as it can be...decided to do this after mailing one of the bloggers I follow faithfully to always update(pot calling kettle black shey?)
I am happy it is almost Friday...in fact by the time I post this, it should be Friday...I used to wonder what the excitement about the day was when I was a student and Friday,Saturday Sunday and Monday etc were alike as far as I was concerned then; it was for STUDYING...talk of having no LIFE!
Well now...I look forward to my weekends and savour every second of it hungrily.
To the students(and I mean full time pls...no part timers thank you!)...I am wishing you a very wonderful weekend...you can take a chill pill this weekend and if anybody complains...tell them I said so ;-)...to the "non-students"... enjoy your weekend wisely...
Well as you can see...this is just me trying to keep in touch...alright then...will update later...
Ooh by the way did anybody hear about the blogger that was arrested in Abuja?Check here for the "gist"...hmmmn na real wa o...obviously some people are feeling the pinch...and they don't want information to be disseminated...please remember him in your prayers.
Personally I think it is ridiculous...Well that's another epistle for another day...
Hasta la vista

It's been a wonderful weekend for me and I hope yours was as great as mine.Monday is just around the corner and meeen ko funny!(it is not funny!).
Which brings me to what I want to ask...If I want to be faithful to my employer, does that mean blogging at work and checking the internet is out of the question?
Is it even okay to send personal mails on one's work email?
Okay the truth is the company policy/employee hand book says it is not right...my argument is: if I dedicate most of my time(9-5) to work, and my work is top notch in every aspect, why can't I use the internet,work mail if I choose to?please don't tell me I have my 1hour lunch 'cos I am not a horse jo! you work a horse till it is dead tired and then you give it just enough time to gain it's strength back just so that you can work it again...oh no...not me!
I'm not having issues with my employer or anything of that nature...but it is something I brood on often.
Even when I have my own company, I don't think not checking the internet at all will be one of my company policies(I'll rather concentrate on result)... that is not to say some people don't abuse this...i.e going to crap sites and allowing the internet to eat deeply into there work time...
Hmmm I know people that get paid heavily to work and all they ever do from morning till night is to die on face book and every other networking site! at the expense of the employee...I'm defintely not talking about that...
How does one draw the line then...as an employee...and then as an employer!

Hello my peops...to the Nigerians amongst y'all (I happen to be one as well!) I'm saying HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
No pun intended but have you noticed that Nigerians are very unique people?
I can't explain it but the truth is...we have the X factor...we stand out,we are intelligent people,very warm,very stylish,very classy,very informed,very sharp...yes I said very sharp...by the way when you suppress sharp people,what you get is 419ers(con men) 'cos there's no avenue/oppourtunity to express their creativity!!!
Anyways I am not blogging about the con men today, I am celebrating the amazing country called Nigeria...I know we've come a long way 48years is not a joke. I know we're taking baby steps at the moment but I know that with time and that is very soon(in my very own life time o!) we will be taking giant strides!
Half of what we've gone through and are still going through doesn't occur in other countries before war errupts...but we are scaling through...
I also remember the innocent blood(s) that has been shed in this land;the MKO Abiolas,the Ken Saro Wiwas...people who fought and died for justice...I pray your fights won't be in vain...

In order to encourage my self in times like this, I tell myself I'm gaining roots...depth...whatever you choose to call it is what I'm gaining.
It so bad that I can't even be bothered to update my blog or leave comments on people's blog(horrible!)
I believe you're all doing very well and living it up...the way it should be...off to check out blogs and gain more depth(smiling!)...

I am amazed at how a big God like you can care about an infinitesimal minuscule like me but You do because Your word says so and You honour Your word higher…way higher than Your name!
I was created in Your image and You inscribed my name on Your palm. Now that is amazing Lord especially when I know the earth is Your foot stool…I can’t begin to imagine what Your palms are like…
You loved (still do) so much that You sent Your only begotten son to die for my sins…now that’s major!
You love me so much that You care about every tiny detail that involves me…as a matter of fact, a strand of hair can’t leave my body without You knowing about it…Lord I’m amazed…
So I know that nothing ever happens to me by mistake; it is all working together for good.
Though I can’t physically see You, I see You around me…I see Your goodness and I see the reality of Your love all around me…only a fool will say there’s no God…or how else can one explain the supernatural miracles You wrought?
Thank You so much Lord for who You are to me...I also want to thank You for being faithful(You do not change but then…You change things and situations!)…even when I am faithless…Lord You remain faithful…Selah

When I say you are my friend, I have exposed a part of me that I won't normally show the whole world and that in itself is deep.
It takes a lot of trust in you to make me call you my friend...only a friend knows the "best" part to stab you...that'll hurt deeply...
sometimes, we fight to deepen our relationships and sometimes...the fight only helps us to realise this relationship was for a season... sometimes...it takes the agape kind of love to make me want to relate with you regardless of what you've done or... said ...
Right now...I need a long dose of agape...Jesus take the wheels!!!

Please how do you tell a guy NO and mean NO in a very nice way?
Seriously o! When it comes to guys and relationships…one thing I notice I lack is “TACT” as in I tell it as it is…I don’t care who’s ox is gored!
So for instance if a guy walks up to me and asks me out etc…once I’ve said no,
I expect the guy to step aside and let me be…and if he persists…kai…that is YAWA!
‘Cos I’ll give him his life history and even lecture him a bit about his future!
Well this has been the case till I became closer to my maker and I realised I needed to be relatively “civil” to people
If I want to lead by example…
So that’s where I’m at right now…I don’t want my faith to be questioned at all…but if this guy can’t understand the simple plain ole English I’m speaking to him…
Meeen I may have to resort to proper jungle language…unless I get a line that works from you guys...

It got me thinking about doing business again!
I just thought to myself my goodness…when/how will I ever be able to build a great organisation like this?
I know it is good to start small and think big (cliché!) but how does one get to this point? How does an individual start a business that will outlive him/her?
Any takers in the house?
I’ve been trying to upload the pictures that left me gobsmacked forever but I can’t seem to get a hang of it…either that or there’s a restriction on my computer(am at work!).

I saw me the way they saw me…I never disappointed;
…They say she is crazy…then I act crazy…
They say she is blunt and daring…then I act blunt and daring…
What a fool I was! ...”Confident fool” as the Amplified Bible will call it.
So I decided to go on a journey…
A discovery journey to understand who I am and what I’m about.
But then, I realised I could only know me through the one who made me…
So I resorted back to the manual of life…to give me direction …
I am still on that journey and everyday has never been the same.
Slowly but surely…I am getting there.
Tuesday, 8 July 2008
People talk about the “great potential money” to be made as an accountant…especially within the financial services…but when I hear this all that goes through my mind is…is it worth it?
Is it worth giving my whole life to an organisation and getting paid a large sum of money that I won’t even have the time to spend?
Is it worth it not having a life for a very long time (probably for as long as the span of my career) in the name of having a J-O-B (just over broke!).
Is it worth the hassle, toiling morning and night at something you know will never be yours regardless of what you do(even EDs are sometimes forced to resign)?
I keep saying I want to be an entrepreneur but the fear of the unknown alone will not let me lift a finger in that direction.
And the: what ifs…yes what about the ifs…
What if it was a big mistake?
What if I can’t pay my bills because I’m running at a loss?
What if my company never grows?
What if I turn to a glorified example of a one man business?
What if I don’t know what I’m doing…?
Now the last what if bothers me beyond words…
I say I want to be an entrepreneur…
I desire it…I crave it…but if you ask me what I want to do…I can guarantee you that my response will be I DON’T KNOW!
How can you not know you ask? But I really don’t know! All I know is I want to be an entrepreneur…not just an anyhow kind of entrepreneur…I want something to differentiate me from the normal market seller…I want my business to outlive me…I don’t want to establish a business just because it is the reigning avenue of making money…IT boom…Property boom…well every boom will eventually burst!...I want a business like coca cola…a business that is like salt to the world… (Can’t do without it type)…but I really don’t know what to do.
Someone said I should just get into a business…any business and if I fail…I fail! But I say why should I start something to eventually fail in it? … I guess the fear of failure is making me think this way.
I have prayed…I have prayed and I have prayed some more…maybe it’s because I spend short period of time in prayer at any point in time…may be I should have a retreat and talk to God more about this…
I want to be an entrepreneur, but I don’t know what I want to do, I am scared of failing before I start but I also know that if I don’t take this dive…I may never be chanced again…
Part of me likes the idea of a 9-5 where my salary is secured…but another part of me knows I can do better than that…
I know I need help…and I need it fast…Can someone help me?

Now fast-forward to the big day and I call them up to know where to meet up and the story changed… “awww sowwweee I forgot” said one of them, another one was like “ it is weekday,bla bla bla”…one told me she was leaving the office pretty late…I called her till the concert started and at a point, she did not pick up my calls again…I mean WTF!!!
The worst part of it all is that I bought the tickets ages ago, five freaking Asa tickets…I had to sell them off at the venue thanks to a cool pal of mine.
So I’ve been bitten once therefore I need to be shy twice. Well when I found out about the comedy thingy, I asked if they were attending and it was the same yes yes yes…lol…oh well this time around y’all getting your tickets OYO levels (On Your Own)... now the issue is going to the event on my own, you know how people turn there noses on unaccompanied ladies attending an event (I mean small minded naija people and trust me, they are many!!!). Truth be told I don’t have an issue attending events, dinners movies on my own moreover I usually see acquaintances that I can hang out with at the venue or simply meet someone new(yeah I am comfortable in my own skin…regardless),it just got me thinking…I have some friends that will never step out of there house unless they have company and here I am with no qualms about it moreover when I go out without my friends, I notice I am more sane, reserved and I’m more aware of my environment; When am with friends,it is the bleeding opposite!
So what do you think about dinning out/attending events alone?

Now this was before J-Lo film 'cos I was telling someone and she was like ooo that was a movie...so now before I start the story...I am specifically saying "this is real life" okay...
Story goes thus...
Dee(assumed name for the lady) is a beautiful mixed race lady.Her British mother left her in Nigeria and moved back to UK. She grew up with her Dad in Ibadan and with the help of an area aunt( a lady like a family friend that lives close by), was able to learn to cook,clean and just generally be a lady.
Years later,area aunty's nephew came back from yankee(he relocated back to naija) and developed an interest in Dee. when area aunt realised it was getting really serious, she called Dee aside and told her that her nephew was spoilt i.e doesn't know how to clean himself not to talk of cleaning up after himself!...Well you know how it is when a woman is in love,bad habits the guy oozes looks "sooo cute"(LMAO) and they ended up getting married.
Then the scales fell...but she really didn't mind the fact that he was spoilt 'cos she was domesticated anyways and she loved him...
Months/Years in to the marriage,Ajebo(spoilt brat...the guy) turned Dee to a punching bag at every given opportunity. It first started the night the guy came home late "ded" drunk and she asked him where he was coming from...the response was a slap and she suffered a black eye as a result.
The beating became very frequent and just about anything could make him boil over to get to this stage.It got so bad that on several occasion, he drove her to the hospital after a beating session for treatment and she was too ashamed to tell anyone about it thus the excuses varied from falling down the stairs to hitting her head on the door depending on the gravity of the beating.
Finally, Dee decided to "do something" about this...she secretly joined a boxing/kick boxing gym where she learnt how to fight and I mean "FIGHT"!
She avoided the husband like a plague during this training and made sure she didn't get into any trouble that will affect her flow...she still loved her husband...in spite of all the beatings.
The day finally came when she was able to use all the fighting techniques she had acquired; he went out and returned late at night...drunk as usual.
she asked him where he was coming from and before the usual slap that follows such questions landed on her face,she had him on the floor eating the sand(not that there was sand in the living room!).
He was shocked...that element of surprise was there and he was in such a bad state that she quietly picked him up and took him to the hospital for treatment(the hunter has become the prey! hee hee heee!!!).
she nursed him back to health and thereafter beat him at every given opportunity. He became calmer and started behaving himself again.although she still keeps fit,she doesn't think she'll be needing the skills anymore...
Moral of the story...learn a defence technique(God forbid you never know when you may be needing it)
and for all the wife beaters out there; practising and potential ones...especially the potential ones...beware...ladies have woken up now...no more miss nice gal...

reminds me of the day I was walking past Benetton at oxford street,saw this disgustingly shapely (beef!) mannequin wearing this pretty skirt,I quickly took the picture 'cos I know it'll come in handy once I'm loaded with materials to sew...
Meanwhile those mannequins can be pretty annoying,notice the way they make every dress look good...till you wear it(tongue in cheek...not me o...every dress I wear suits me just fine!!!Pinocchio!)...
Am off to the tailor's...

Meeen I should be working o! But I just can't help wanting to post on my blog…crazy isn’t it? One minute you living in this state of perpetual ignorant bliss to the world of blogville and the next second…it's in your veins like a virus…Na wa o! Heavens help me.
Anyways where was I...ehen Asa...meeen that gal is the bomb, okay from the beginning, my first encounter with her CD wasn't spectacular in anyway...a friend of mine had come visiting from 9ja and was going on and on about this chic that could belt out songs but I wasn't having any of that story so she made me watch Fire on the mountain on You tube...ohh well I still wasn't gelling o! My opinion then was...she couldn't be for real and that she was a flash in the pan...you see I love music and I don't listen to just any kind of music...for me to listen to your music or to music...it must have roots(can't explain it but I'll try...you see I like to listen to the story behind the song and if your music makes sense...I won't necessarily conclude that you've been where your music is taking me to...cos you may just be a singer and not a musician! did you get that?lol...right)
I love songs that have souls...may be I should be a music producer or something related to that! lol cos men once I hear a song…I just know if it will be a hit or not...anyways I digress; My first encounter with Asa's "fire on mountain" wasn't spectacular and I wasn't impressed in the least bit.I just left it there and was listening to my other cool naija songs by the way did I tell you I listen almost solely to naija songs(God help me and “nose turning up to the sky" friends who think naija songs are razzz...Imagine o! non patriotic rabits!)...right...where was I,yeah some months later another visit from one of my naija peops and this one practically shoved the CD down my throat and insisted I go listen to it by force and give him the feed back...Well my people when I started...the first track sounded cool,second track...not bad and by the time I got to bibanke...ladies in the house you know the track I'm talking about...I knew I've been won over...(The journey to being a fan of Asa’s songs can be likened to a lady(moi) who was being wooed by a man(asa’s song) and you know her first impression of the guy wasn't anything fantastic,then he asked her for a date(part where my friend insisted I go listen to the CD),just some couple of hours to prove himself...and she reluctantly obliged...and right after the date...she knew he had her hook,line and sinker!) lol
She came to London for this show a couple of weeks back and your gal was there life and direct! fortunately I got talking to some people that knew her from way back and I was told she has been singing for quite a while before she bursted out in 07/08.Hardwork and total dedication pays off man!
I was impressed,apparently she is a hard worker who doesn't leave anything to chance(breathe of fresh air!).I watched a clip of an interview she gave on You-tube and I was impressed with how well she knows her stuff.I have no doubt in my heart of hearts that we haven't heard the last of her.
Thursday, 29 May 2008
Babe was waiting for bobo and fending off all suitors just because of Yankee love o! Inspite of the fact that guy hadn't communicated in ages. This movie just got me thinking like crazy! Why do we make promises we can't keep...or why do we not own up once we realise we can't keep the promise. Poor chic was left hanging like a pendulum forever because of Yankee bobo.Only for him to come back with another mgbeke hanging on his arm...
Don't get me wrong I'm not saying the gal did well by hiding her past from the guy…now that's another epistle for another day 'cos I have my take on that! He should have set the gal free before he travelled…at least let her know that you know what she's hiding instead of keeping her hanging to what is not. I see this happening around me all the time; probably not the same story line but quite related...why will you tell someone you'll be there for them for the rest of your life when you know it's a mirage and it will never happen...
Maybe I am just naïve and I don't understand the way this things work…maybe I like to look at the world through a rose tinted glass or maybe I feel/believe a certain level of integrity is expected from every individual regardless of your creed, your belief, your colour or your gender…
Guess what the gal ended up doing? She poisoned herself and the guy together…so they died together...that brings me to another gist entirely o…
Why do gals do that? Commit suicide over one guy? (Tufi akwa! God forbid strange thing! Hian!!!) When there are a million and one lovely brovas out there…my heart actually gave me the answer before I even finished typing…it’s because there can never be any one like you…why does life have to be so complicated…
Tuesday, 20 May 2008
I can't remember the last time I was here! Gosh it's been ages...for some reason,my brain has refused to co-operate with my fingers to type something worthwhile...hence the reason I just check out my favourite bloggers' sites on blogville and exit sharpishly.
But now,I've decided to put down whatever comes to my mind regardless of how stupid or unintelligent it is!)
yeah that's what am going to do...otherwise my account will just expire on blogville and I still won't be the wiser for it.
Having gone through my fav people's blog,I really wonder how they come up with very intelligent write ups o!(God please help,open my mind and let me see through your eyes.)
Ok let me just say that the most recent development that has really made a difference in my life is the fact that God has pruned me and is still pruning me and helping me to NOT be a judgemental human being...imagine o! It was an eye opener for me and I prayed that day to see people through God's eyes.
First sign that I was being transformed was when I got on the bus and saw this drunk guy swaggering and cussing like a sailor,I suddenly felt a surge of pity for him and I prayed for him in my heart...Now I am work in progress and I know that from time to time,I "may mess up" but I know and believe I will grow...well you may ask how that is a sign...well moi before would have started insulting the poor guy in my heart like(olofo somebody,who sent you to go and get drunk,I really hope you get beaten ode jati jati!)...but that night I just thought of what he must be going through for him to go soak himself up in alcohol and I felt real pity for him.
I digress...anyways point is I will visit you more oven blogville and pour down my gibberish yarns regardless of how senseless it sounds. Infact I intend to visit you more than once a day o and I'll drop a line sha(at least)!!!

...well...what can a gal do after this kind of absolutely dim-witted mail from an obvious fool.
I replied o...Answer a fool according to his folly, Lest he be wise in his own eyes.prov26:5
Anyways I replied and my response went like this:
Stupid omo ale jati jati(bastard!!!).you no dey look face before you send your stupid email abi?Imagine o!Na me you wan con abi(is it me you want to con?)?
God punish you and all your cohorts.I would have given you a generational curse to nurse for the rest of your life,but I won't 'cos there's still hope for you to change.Piece of advice...You better give ur life to Christ!All this rubbish wey you dey do no go pay your arse at the long run.

Just as I was about to cross the barrier,I found out my monthly ticket wasn't with me...(for heaven's sake 160quid down the drain).
On getting back to the pastry shop,the cashier told me he didn't see anything that looked like my "oyster"...right...I knew he was lying...don't ask me how.It was at that point I decided to choose the way I'll react...my word...did it work!
I just chilled out called the office and told them what the situation was...mentally talked to myself that it could have been worse,what if it was my bank card that was stolen moreover the card was registered so i get to have a refund.
so there you go,after a series of positive thinking,I eventually had a great day.
Moral of the story:
I am getting a car ASAP!!! ok...just kidding(not really) but positive thinking really works, seriously it does.

Having read stories from wonderful bloggers like silent screams,30+,Bimbylads and blackjamesbond,I am inspired to give it a go again,I hope this will be good therapy for me...
