La la la la la, Lo lo lo lo lo yeah

Yayyyyy. A month to go!!!!

So I miss my Tuesday posting (well blame it on being too tired to post last night). So here you have what was meant to be yesterday’s post.

First thing first, the give away starts today and ends on the 26th of November. All you have to do is comment. I was going to do questions and all but never got round to posting all I was gonna “set the questions” on. So yeah, all you have to do is comment. And the time starts now. I see some people are doing copy copy sha! May the good Lord forgive you.

That said, if you haven’t read/seen naijahusband’s blog, you are on a long tin. The posts are hillarious yet very necessary and a most read (if I can say so) for young couples. So if you haven’t, let me help you. You can read his (their) posts here.

Am I the only one who thinks it is a taboo to disrupt someone’s Sunday afternoon nap? I had my ogas disrupt my sleep on Sunday and apparently ended up yarning gibberish (not something that could get me sacked, yayy). Sure they have a note to self: never call Deronk on a Sunday afternoon. YET, why would you wanna ruin Sunday afternoon?

Very short post it is.

Do have a great day people.

Tada

Donna Vs Scottie

I was this close to missing my Tuesday blog post. Doh o to those who expected a post all day. E ma binu. I have actually written this post like 6 times (in my head). Add a crazy yesterday and a very funny today + a bad leg + internet connection wey dey act funny. But no weapon formed or fashioned against this post shall…… I no talk anytin.

That said Ifed and I had an “argument” over the weekend hence the title of this post. Donna Vs Scottie. For the #Suits fans. And even if you no like am sef. Let me break it down.

Scottie

  1. Harvard Grad
  2. Lawyer
  3. Kinda petite
  4. Good looking Brit

Donna

  1. Secretary
  2. Tall (or maybe the heels to help sha)
  3. Attractive
  4. Smart American

Ok I am just listing 4 “points” ehn. Donna works with Harvey as his secretary. She knows him like when you talk say someone know pesin. They have had a fling.  What else? Scottie is the babe Harvey likes. Known each other since Harvard. She has been in and out of Harvey’s love life. I know you can’t make a judgment on based on these ehn so please download Suits and watch. Anywayz I did a poll at work and most people seem to prefer Scottie because she is his “class”. Not because they are compatible. Or they love each other. Or what are the reasons people date these days? Harvey should be with Scottie because she is his class. Seriously? Funny reason to be with someone. Because he/she is your class…

However, Donna and Harvey is errrr. They work together. Dating your boss is a no-no from here; office romance in its entirety. But since I favour Donna, she has to leave to be able to date him ba? Bet, how would Harvey survive without Donna at work? Decisions, decision. Would Harvey prefer Donna in his work life or his personal life? Would you rather have that person you wanna be with at work or at home? Moving on.

Whew. Who has fun during the last holiday? I sure did. You wey God used to breathe life into my “social life” during the last week, e se pupo. Beach tins, Fifa tins…. You know yourself. Now back to a practically non-existent social life. I need help ko?

It is officially countdown to THE BIRTHDAY. FIVE WEEKS BAYBY…. KENT WAIT. Competition starts next week. Still don’t know what form or shape it would take though. And yes, you are not eligible. Once again, you know yourself. If you beg me sha, I fit change my mind.

Is it worth downloading BBM for Android?

This Papa Pope issue. Am I the only one who is worried? #Scandal

A friend made this comment earlier today which I thought to share

“Sometimes I wonder whether it is more difficult for guys or girls to find ‘the one’”

True? I woulda said either ways but then tis the guy doing the finding ba? What ya think?

Post 2

I had a should I say wardrobe malfunction at work yesterday.

See as their eyes dey sharp.

Well, I was heading to my oga’s office when I noticed my skirt was a little free. And am thinking “errr what is going on here”. You see, this particular suit is one of my “tight” suits ba the skirt is fitted (is that right? warrefa). As in, no space at the waist. Unlike most of my other suits, with a little space at the band. So I put my hand to my skirt and lo and behold, my zip was down. Ha! How did that happen? I still don’t know. Remember this skirt isn’t even a “free” skirt. I adjusted quickly, looked round, and figured nobody noticed and pretended nothing happened. Told a couple of colleagues, and went about my business.

Only for the same thing to happen to one of the people I told. She was by one of the printers, bends (at least we can give a reason for hers ba?) and next thing her zip is down. Now the question is, what happened? What if it was a free skirt? What if my skirt dropped at work? What if I had entered my oga’s office when it happened? *sigh*. Major disaster averted.

Happy holiday people. Hope ya all are resting. Yeah for those of us wey dey do public holiday today and tomorrow (e ma binu, bank holiday). As some of us no get weekend (was at a training), this is our own Saturday and Sunday. It just so feels like a weekend. Am I allowed to call in sick on Thursday and Friday? The unfortunate thing is that I ku don’t have anything planned. And as with not having anything planned in this house, you become madam driver…. So please people is there any pari anywhere tonight or tomorrow? I wee come I promise.

#Scandal o. Sorry this blog is practically turning to a Scandal blog. Can we get Papa Pope off Scandal? Dude is creepy. And that last 2 scenes of Episode 2!!! *le sigh*

And you know yourself, where is my “breaking bad”?

Anywayz, time to find something to do to keep my cousin happy.

Tada people

Of Obedience, Scandal and other things

Most of this post was written over the last week. Well I had to wait till today to post as I already promised Tuesday Tuesday posts. So well, here it is.

What is it with guys and their “she is a woman so whatever I ask her to do she must do”? I was in church and a friend beckoned (sounds so ancient yeah!!!) and I didn’t. Next thing he goes on about how I will be married soon and I should start to learn obedience (insert submission). And me I just laughed. What has your calling me and me not answering got to do with my marriage? I didn’t answer you now means I am disobedient? Or that means I would be disobedient to my husband? I stopped short of telling him “if you want to enter that submission matter, my own Bible says wives submit to their own (key word OWN) husbands, not our, not your, not all men, not all males, not….. Ish

Or when people feel because I grew up in Ibadan, I must know how to make amala. And when I say I can’t I get all sorts of reactions and comments from “if your husband likes it yada yana” to those who tell me straight up I should go learn it. Please my I can cook other stuff and can even pound apparently doesn’t matter as long as I am “an Ibadan girl (never mind that I am not from Ibadan o), and I can’t make amala”. Ish. If husband likes amala, he should be prepared to make it o. My inability to make amala doesn’t make me less a woman.

I was going to blog about Scandal last week but once again I was bound by my Tuesday post. So angelsbeauty beat me to it. Funny what i had in mind was what she blogged about so no point reinventing the wheel. Why was I going to blog about it? I was gisting with a colleague and he called me Miss Pope (just because I said I liked Scandal). And am like heck no!! He then goes on to talk about how my liking it means I support adultery. Let me state here. I DO NOT AND WILL NEVER SUPPORT ADULTERY.

However, whilst I don’t support Olitz, I always wonder what would have happened if Fitz and Olivia met much earlier. Before Mellie. Makes me think a lot about our choices in marriage. We all (we who watch it) know the “circumstances” of Mellie and Fitz’s marriage. Fast forward some years and he meets this “great” woman he “loves” and he is stuck in a marriage he wants out of. But he can’t. Biko, shine your eyes well and pray hard before you get in. Once in, you can’t get out. And there would always be that great woman or man, even when you are with your right choice.

That said, I just like angelsbeauty watch it for the intrigues and all. Pure entertainment. And yes, the Olivia Pope look and smartness and nack for fixing things. #astormiscoming #scandal. Looking forward to this season yo!!! So many stories that Ms. Shonda can hit us with. Rowan (I so detest that man), Olitz, Mellie, Cy, Jake (oh yes him, sure we haven’t heard the last of him). And Lisa Kudrow is in this season. Yayyyyy!!!!!!! I hope this storm won’t “sweep us away”. And hopefully it won’t become a #Revenge. To think there is season 3 of Revenge. I pray, what is the script writer thinking?

I usually wonder what goes on in the minds of people who drive silly in the rain. Like seriously, it is freaking raining and one has to be extra careful. I kent be thinking twice as much as I think and now come and add your own madness to it. And we wonder why there are a lotta accidents on the road when it rains. Osi.

Weddings weddings weddings. The amount I have spent on aso-ebi this year ehn!!! And the year aint ended yet. *sigh*. God help me.

Tada friends.

Have a great week.

Abundant life is enjoying here on earth and in heaven. Omo jaiye jaiye, omo jorun jorun– Pastor Femi Atoyebi

This is so me!!!!!
This is so me!!!!!

What’s up yo!!

First things first, Happy Birthday Nigeria. And to all those born today. God bless ya.

Back to the matter. You def know the bosses are back. So blogging won’t be that regular. I am talking in advance now o. You wey this message is for, you sabi yourself. *big smile*. That said, I promised a give-away in October. I also promised to give deets (details; na so people dey use deets to replace details o, no bi me o) this month. Well, that was because I thought I would blog wella and drop bits and pieces of what the questions for the give-away would be. Better late than never ba? So for the next 3 or 4 Tuesdays, I should blog on one thing or the other. Very random stuff I believe. And the questions might or should come out from them or older posts.

So what has been happening? Passed the exam I failed the 2nd time. Not excited. Had 96% though. The 2nd exam, well, shoulda done that yesterday bet had a meeting I didn’t know about until yesterday morning so had to move it forward. Should do it sometimes this month.

Twas my Taiye’s birthday last Wednesday. Yes momma’s birthday was the 25th and our Idowu (baby sis) was 21 on Sunday. It was a very lovely week. #Arsenal now made it even lovelier. Never been this happy watching an Arsenal game in years. We still have a lot to work on though. But so far, tis been good yeah. Waiting for May. I gas collect all my bets. Yes, dem Man U fans I am looking at you. You kent back out now right!!!

Deronk has started gyming…  Oh yes people, this tummy has to go. I do about 20-30 minutes in the mornings every morning except this morning (yes I was too lazy and my bed felt a lot friendly this morning). I have only managed to lose 4kg though since September 14 bet this tummy is still there o. I was going to start using the gym at work for an hour in the evening but it is closed *sigh. I might put up pictures if you beg me. Lol. That said, anybody knows how good the Nike Training App is? Downloaded it but not started using it.
