Merry Christmas my people, I hope you are having a wonderful time, if you having the christmas blues just try a little and try as much as you can to enjoy the day. Let's have a serving of Christmas randoms shall we?:

So, I've been wallowing in selfpity that I couldn't be in Nigeria this christmas. Woe is me. Instead of me to focus on the fact that I am alive and have wonderful friends and I have the ability to go to Nigeria whenever I want and I already did once this year. Thankfully, christmas is here and I am actually in good spirits, so yay for that.

Britney has this hot song called "3". There is a line in it that goes "living in sin is the new thing". I have to say I feel uncomfortable singing it, for the most part I alter that line.

I saw an ad for this cool feature on blogger. They turn your blog posts into a book for you and all you have to choose is the cover page. I think that's pretty neat.

I am in Houston for the holidays and I have to sa…

Taking Stock 2009

I stole this from Lady JuiceGal cuz I thought it was pretty neat. Before I do that, I wanna apologize in advance for anyone who missed my Friday Randoms, it was a combination of forgetfulness and laziness. I apologize and I would be back this friday, promise!.

So I am usually unsure on whether to respond to comments in the comment box because I don't know if anyone comes back to read them, so I'll just reply here.(this was from my last post)

Oje - I am working on the teeth picture ;)

Myne - I wore my braces for exactly 11 months and 7 days. There is a short term ortho program for adults that's usually 6 months but I lost 3 months of no checkups being in naija and I had special situation so it took that long. It was ok and not as bad as I thought cuz they weren't the metal kind, they were enamel colored. Couldn't eat certain foods, and frustrating cuz food usually got stuck. Other mouth activities were the same :)

Vivian and Shade - I don't have to wear the retainer…

Friday Randoms

I can't even tell you how hellish this week has been for me and I am glad it's over. In about 6 and a half hours, I will be taking my last final for the semester but I thought I'd take a break and do my randoms now or else I probably won't get to it. Here we go:

Man, I don't know about you but it is so easy to eat away your emotions. You don't even realise how you are just chomp, chomp, chomping away.

I don't know how I kept forgetting to mention it, but I took off my braces about a month ago and I am very pleased with the result. I had a gap that was getting wider by the moment. It's all closed now and my teeth are straight. I smile for no reason now lol

Ladies, how many of you have the thought process that you can get any man you want or set your sights on?

These celebs want to kill us with perfume ads oh. Every second you look at the tv, some celeb is prancing around on a field or beach or something trynna sell us perfume because it's christmas.

Just Because..Lyrics

"Her best days will be some of my worst"

"While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping"

"Cause I got time while she got freedom"


"What am I suppose to do
When the best part of me was always you and
What am I suppose to say
When I'm all choked up and you're okay

I'm falling to pieces, yeah
I'm falling to pieces"


"Cause when a heart breaks, no it don't breakeven, even, no"

Lol, no my heart didn't just get broken. I've just been a The Script mode. Been listening to them for the last couple of days and I really like this song and the lyrics. When two people break up, no matter how much they hurt, it's just never even. Like the line says, one person gets (sad) time while the other gets freedom/relief.

Ok the real lyrics I wanted to post were Leona Lewis' "Happy". Feel free to prove me wrong but Leona is my pick for the best f…

Friday Randoms

Hi guys! Happy Friday and Happy New Month to you! As you may have read, I just turned 100, so I am a ripe, old woman ready to boogiieee woohoo!. Ok just kidding, aiite let's do this:

So, if you haven't heard the whole Tiger Woods saga, you are most definitely living under a rock. Such a sad situation. I put on my FB status that I felt sorry for Tiger, a looooong convo ensued over that but one of the comments from 2 male friends of mine was something to the effect of why is she shocked? she married an athlete, she should have expected him to cheat. That made me a little sad, looking around our world it seems like cheating is becoming the norm and everyone is accepting it, does this mean we as humans are not meant for monogamy?

Meanwhile a clever MSNBC caption about the saga was : Crouching Tiger, Hidden Passion. I thought it was pretty clever and put it as my BB status. Unfortunately, most people thought it was my newest addition to a porn collection.

Speaking of my BB, that fl…

Woooohooooo! Took me almost 2 years but guess who just clocked 100 posts! Yezzir, it's your girl Taynement. It's been a weird blogging journey, from enduring blog links from my BFF who was obsessed with blogs, to actually reading and finding some interesting stories to actually blogging but with the goal of blogging about just entertainment stuff, which was where I started from in 2007. Somewhere along the line, I deviated and started writing about personal stuff and any other thing but entertainment topics.(Hence the birth of www.tayne-ment.blogspot.com). Even though I don't have any specific topic or I don't get as personal as some people, I would like (and hope) my blog has a theme or undercurrent of Encouragement. Everyone has more than enough problems or worries on their plates and in a world full of realists and pessimists, it's every easy to get downtrodden or think you are the only one who goes through or thinks about some certain things. It's also ver…

Happy Turkey and Thanksgiving day people. Hope everyone had something to be thankful for. If your answer is no, dig deeper and I am sure you would find something you are thankful and if not, if you are able to read this, I thank God for you that you have life...and as long as you have life, there is hope. Let's do this, shall we?

Honestly, how did generations before us work out without music in their ears? Like I had this one awesome workout that was filled with Naija music, it was awesome. Soca music is another good one for workout.

Has anyone ever heard of a gay muslim?

Ok so look at this picture and what do you see?:



So, my mind is crazy. Sometimes my friends tell me things or we are discussing things and I totally have some animated cartoon running in my head and I am laughing hard. Sometimes I see things (videos, ads) and think they are so genius example lady gaga's paparazzi, I just think that video is artistically genius. Anyways, I saw that ad and thought it was just brill…

Hi people, hope everyone had a good start to their week and is looking forward to their turkey day. Anyways, I had this blog written (in my head of course)last week after watching the Janet Jackson interview on ABC. Anyways, as I was watching the interview and looking at the pictures of her over the years, I was thinking to myself, "This woman is one heck of a pretty lady with or without makeup and she has a gorgeous smile". Also, everytime I see Janet, I forget she has a "donk" (booty for those of you that don't know" and I am always like, "where did that come from?" before I remember that Janet has always had one.

As the interview progressed, Robin Roberts (the interviewer) asked her how she didn't see herself as hot as everyone else sees her. Janet went ahead to answer that she doesn't know but she is learning to love herself. Jermaine(Dupri) helped her to accept her booty and realise there was nothing wrong with it, she likes the sma…

Friday Randoms

Not in a pleasant mood so here we go :

First off, LucidLillith I haven't forgotten about the topic, but I read the magazine at a nail place and I thought I would be able to find it online but I can't. So I'll search some more and if not, I'll just write off of memory.

I don't know who is more annoying that has been doing press rounds lately : Carrie Prejean or Sarah Palin. Carrie Prejean is just a dislikable, obnoxious mumu with solo sex tapes and Palin's voice alone makes me itch. I am sure it didn't help that I watched the Obama documentary right before her Oprah interview.

I need the warmth of a man's body asap, don't judge me!..sigh, if wishes were horses. I never seem to get what I want :(.

Speaking of warmth, how on earth do priests and nuns do it. I mean yes they are humans and they probably err every now and them and get theirs but for those that do honor their vows, how do they survive? No touch, No kiss, no nothing. Well I guess that's whe…

Friday Randoms

Hi my pipus, how you dey? Once again as time is flying, it is Friday again. I just got done with an exam and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder. Can't wait for the semester to end. Alrighty, let's hop on the random train, shall we?


I started watching the T.V show L word and one scene kinda put a thought in my head. I am in no way making light of rape but I wondered if a gay woman can rape another gay woman. Also, you know how when a male rapes a female they have these rape kits to prove she was raped, how will they do it in this case, if it is infact possible?

In response to my last post, Ms. Dufa posted a response that said : True. Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. Hold onto yours and hear other people out, if it suits you, adjust yours and if it doesnt suit you, keep it to yourself and move on. I totally agree with it but I also wanted to add that sometimes just because one decides to keep it to themselves and move on doesn't mean they are pa…

Just a thought...

I don't really have a fleshed out post or thought for this but it was just something that occurred to me because I have seen many examples of it in the past week. Why is it as human beings, we tend to discount other people's ideas/opinions/beliefs because it's not in tune with ours? I think I find that irritating really. Like who makes one Lord or Queen that their opinion is rule. I think you can still have an opinion but still be able to realize that just because it is not your reality or part of your life doesn't mean it doesn't mean anything. The world will be a better place if we respected other people's views. The end.

How's everyone doing? Hope the week has been good so far? Take care and see y'all on Friday!

Friday Randoms

This is ridiculous. How is it time for randoms again.already? na wa oooh. Oya let's go diaaa:

- I'm not no skinny bitch but ever since college I have been pretty active and can hold my own in a gym BUT I HATE working out. If I didn't have to I wouldn't work out.

- To help with my dislike for working out, I try to incorporate my love for dance when I can at gym classes. Like with step class, I try to turn a basic right into a salsa step lol.

- How does one get over a parent committing suicide?

- I LOVE M.I. I confess that every now and then I stare at a picture of him that a friend sent me ever so kindly on my phone.

- I will always always love Sia's "Breathe Me"

- "Tis true that time heals numbs all wounds.

- Everytime I hear any of these songs : Beyonce's "smash into you" and taylor swift's "breathe" and "you're not sorry", I smile. Because this time last year these songs were guaranteed (almost) tear jerker…

(Lord Have) Mercy on Me

Lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
That I'm down on my knees
Lord have mercy on me, please

Jesus, I must confess
That in all my loneliness
I've forsaken and I've sinned
Leaving fragments of a man so broken

I could tell you what I've done
Or should I tell you where I went wrong?

Well the more that I start to play
My deceitful, evil ways
Keep on growing stronger by the day

Oh lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord have mercy on me, please

Mother Mary full of grace
In my weakness, I've lost faith
I've been careless, and I have been warned
And the devil inside me is torn
God bless the men that I have scorned

So don't let me fool around no more
Send your angels down to guide me through that door
Well I've gone and confessed my regrets
And I pray I'm not held in contempt
I'm so lost, and I need you to help me repent

Oh lord have m…

Hola Amigos! Can you believe it? It's friday already?? This -mber months ain't playing yo..Ok no time wasting here we go:

- Taynement has discovered the joys of TLC.I mean where have I been without Say yes to the dress, Little Couple, Cake boss etc etc. Amazingness, I tell ya lol.

- Say yes to the dress has shown me why it's easy for people to go broke in this country. If you think financing an $11k or $14k dress makes sense to you then what other foolhardy financial decisions are you making?? The cheapest dress I have seen on this show was $2k and I was still balking. Sha sha, I chuckled when the $11k dress owner's fiance cancelled the wedding and she was stuck with it and had only paid $6k. More power to ya elbows oh!

Just Learn the Language

So I caught up on Latinos in America and watched The Garcias version. It was pretty interesting, sad to watch (one of the stories had a girl who went to a high school with a 70% dropout rate. She vowed to not be a statistic but went ahead and got pregnant at 17 and didn't graduate). The one story that caught my attention was the one about the members of a catholic church that seemed to have a division between the Hispanics and the white members. Because of the language division, the church has had to split,they have separate masses, one in english and one in spanish to accommodate the hispanics that can't speak english, they've also had to create a separate church council and organize their social events separately. 6 members from each side were interviewed separately and it was interesting to see the points of views because as with everything when you add religion it becomes tricky.

Soledad asked questions and at one point, one of the members on the "white side" …

LIFE LESSONS

My CILy sent this to me. I usually delete forwards but I liked this. My favorite was #22. Others were #10, #24 and #11. Enjoy and feel free to share your favorites :


1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4.. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it..
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't mess up the present..
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you s…

Can you believe it's friday already?

First off, I want to thank each and every one of you for your comments on my last post. It was one of those days and I honestly didn't know when I just picked up the computer and wrote. Once again thank you so much, I really appreciated it.

I have never been to Disney World. I really want to, so it's on my list of things to do.

I absolutely LOVED Nice Anon's most recent post. She seems like someone with an awesome personality and I absolutely applaud her.

So I wonder, these women on Dancing with the Stars, do they ever have their period? or at the very least, do none of them have heavy flow? I mean every week someone's leg is being spread open in the air with some man's face between it. maybe it's just me.

Is it weird to be fascinated with death?

Sometimes I hear how some young 'uns sound and I wonder if I ever sounded that well..stupid.

I saw this on someone's status : Everyone, at some point, wakes up in the middle of…

So so bummed....

....is how I feel today. No energy to even type details or even think about it. I can't ask why for the millionth time and I can't blame myself yet again. Mummy says don't lose hope, just keep having faith. So that's what I'll do. I feel like a runner whose legs have been run over and is in a cast. But I have life, as long as there is life there is hope, so I am sure I can find some fight in me. So i'll try that.

Have a good week guys!

I never used to mind but once you have been to as many interviews as I have, I LOATHE the whole job interview process. I mean it's like begging someone for something you know you can do and having your fate in someone else's hands. Yuck!

That being said, it's very distracting when your interviewer is tres cute.

School is kicking my ass!

The little things we take for granted. I was watching Adoption Diaries and man it was so sad to see these women describe their pain on not being able to conceive or carry a baby. That feeling of failing as a woman or as a wife. It can't be easy. I have always said that I don't think Nigerians have that problem lol..we are very fertile.

That being said, i have always been wary of adoption but now I think I am a little more comfortable with it.

Still on the subject of kids, I have wide hips, they call it child bearing hips. Every now and then I wonder if ironically I'd have to have a csection. I can't wait to have my kids.

Wheels

I know what you´re thinkin´
We were goin´ down
I can feel the sinkin´
But then I came around

And everyone I´ve loved before
Flashed before my eyes
And nothin´ mattered anymore
I looked into the sky

Well we all want something better than
We wish for something new
Well we all want something beautiful
Wish for something true
Been lookin´ for a reason and
Something to lose

When the wheels come down
When the wheels touch ground
And you feel like it´s all over
There´s another round for you
When the wheels come down

Now your head is spinnin´
Broken hearts will mend
This is our beginning
Comin to an end

Well you wanted something beautiful
You wished for something new
Well you wanted something better than
Wished for something true
Been lookin for a reason and
Something to lose

The Nigeria Talk

So unless you were under a rock this week, you must have come across this video of Chimamanda Adichie, a Nigerian author who was speaking on the dangers of a single story. Just in case you haven't the video is below, pretty neat stuff.

">

Last weekend, I was opportuned to be a panelist at a forum that had the topic of "The State of Nigeria Today" and a lot of things were discussed. COmbined with the popularity of this video on my fb feed that had my many nigerian friends declaring their naija pride and all, made me wonder - When we say I am proud to be Naija, what exactly are we proud of? Let me see if I can express the thoughts in my head better in writing.

See the forum made me meet different people who are passionate about Nigeria. I met a girl who unfailingly peruses most of the naija newspapers online to stay informed about what is going on, I met a guy who personally went through the Naija-Delta ordeal and damn near almost cried when talking about his peop…

I don't know if it's the dress I wore..if I gained weight...or if it's just always been like that but all I know is I looked in the mirror and my ass is too big.(ass in these sense means my actual nyansh, lol)

I'm glad I studied well for my test, it went well, Thank God. I like my teacher even if he is an equal opportunity offender. He is Turkish and just says whatever but we know he is not being mean so it's funny. I'll give an example. After every exam, he takes us out for pizza and drinks so when the vegetarian pizza came in his heavy accent he was like, "Indians, come and get it, no meat!" lol!.

For someone who constantly puts their foot in their mouth, its pure bliss being in your own company.

Taking Responsibility (?)

So I love Michael Buble. MB has a new song out called "Haven't met you yet". The song is pretty much about the quest for love but one line in the song stood out to me. MB sings, " I'm not surprised, not everything lasts, I've broken my heart so many times, I've stopped keeping track".

Ok so I liked the fact that he used "I" instead of "She". See as humans we always say, she/he broke my heart. But his use of I made me think that he probably used it the right way. At what point do we take responsiblity in our part for a break up. I mean I am sure there are exceptions when one party is totally blindsided but in most cases I think we can equate it to same way we say noone can hurt your feelings unless you let them, can this be applied to this too? Bear with me cuz I haven't fully thought this out.Like I said, I am sure there are blindside situations but for the most part there are signs(right?) and if we choose to ignore them and…

The Pursuit of Happyness

Although some of us may seem confused and wondering what direction to take in our lives, we are all pursuing that happyness. I realise it varies for everyone, so today I ask, what is your happyness?

Love, Career, Financial Security or Other?

Hey guys I decided to stop wavering back and forth on topics on this blog and I just opened a strictly popculture/entertainment blog where I hope to entertain y'all with celeb news, tv updates/reminders, new music/movies etc. So please try to support and stop by and tell everyone you know, have a lovely weekend!

Movies and Reality

I love movies. Not all kinds of movies. You could say I am a picky movie watcher. In spite of all that, I'd say I watch a lot more movies than the average person but half of them noone's heard about. Anywhoos, as a professional single, I try to go to the movies every week and since I returned I go Fridays. I couldn't go last week because I had exams so I went today and saw I can do bad by myself and 500 days of summer. I like movies that make me think and these two movies made me think.

I CAN DO BAD BY MYSELF

This was a very good movie coming from Tyler Perry's stable. I usually feel like his movies are lacking something (well depth) and are very preachy. I get the audience he is trying to reach but nyeh it's just not my cup of tea. Mary J was looking absolutely awesome in the movie and she sang a song in that movie that I want - I can do bad by myself- truer words have never been spoken. We all have issues and sometimes it just makes us be self destructive and s…

Music on my Mind on Monday

Hey guys, I have nothing to blog about so I thought I'd share some of my current favorite music ( you know how i love my music)> I'll youtube some and the rest y'all can look up if you want. Have a lovely night/day.

So for those of you who know, Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek is one of my favorite songs of all time --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4OLQB7ON9w --- Some young man has decided to add a hip hop twist to it and i like it also:

In exactly, 3 hours and 45 minutes I will be 27. I wanted to use the opportunity to say Thank you Baba God for letting me see another year (hopefully nothing happens in 3:45, lol), I want to thank you for my family and my amazing friends. I remember my journey from the minute I turned 26 to this year and I want to thank God for everything, both good and bad. I am grateful for the lessons I have learned and hope to grow even more this year.

Alright, that being said I will start my day by going to church and lounging till class time and after class tomorrow, it's on and popping y'all. I'm gonna find somewhere to dance and have a good time like the true Virgo that I am. Thank you fellow Bloggers for all the nuggets of wisdom, food for thoughts and encouraging words that you guys always provide. Later y'all and feel free to write nice well wishes for me :D

Random Thursday

I am in class all bored and stuff with A LOT of stuff on my mind, sigh. I have done blog rounds and visited a lot of bloggers for the first time, so I decided to just write out some stuff I can share.

- Are there people out there who don't suffer from procrastination? I need to get on whatever it is they are on. It's like I know what I need to be doing and should be doing but I just don't, it's the most amazing and infuriating thing.

- So you know the stereotype of how most Asians are small and skinny. When I see a fat one, I usually wonder how they feel and if they feel like they have failed their race. Oh yea, Fat Asians make me uncomfortable (It's my random, sue me)

- I used to LOVE the show, Friends. I still love it, actually it's my favorite comedy and second favorite show (behind Six Feet Under). Never missed an episode when it was on. I had the soundtrack cd to the show, I'd watch the reruns like I hadn't seen it ten million times, I'd say thei…

Happy New Month, Blogsville!

It's a new month my fellow bloggers. It's the beginning of the bestest month in the world, my birthday month!( Have I mentioned how much I love birthdays? just everything about it, living to see another year, the gifts hehe, woohoo!) Anyways to commemorate I thought I'd write down a list of my do's and dont's..

I DO believe love is a beautiful and powerful thing.
I DON'T believe love conquers all.

I DO believe in working hard and giving it your all.
I DON'T believe that's all that's required to be successful.

I DON'T believe being gay is a sin.
I DO believe acting on it is a sin.

I DO believe in living life to the fullest.
I DON'T believe in living life wrecklessly.

I DO believe people make mistakes in life.
I DON'T believe in making the same mistakes over and over again.(learn from 'em dammit)

I DO believe in not judging.
I DON'T believe in not checking your neighbor when need be.

I DO believe in respecting your fellow human being.

Faith

Dudes, I don't know what happened but it's like as soon as I stepped foot on U.S soil it literally sucked my blogging mojo out of me. You don't know how many times I have come on here to post and my mind just goes blank and I have nothing to say. My people help me oh, how can I get it back?:(..Maybe it's cuz I am back to my dull life, nothing happens to me especially now where I just wake up, do things, go to class sleep. I am in the job market oh, anyone wey get hookup, holla!

Going to Nigeria was a complete leap of faith, the biggest leap of faith that I have ever taken. Before I left, I was in a BAD place and my friends could testify to that. I hated my job, I was homesick, my self-esteem was at a low, I was looking for an internship and couldn't find one and that just added to my despair, add some more unpleasant stuff and basically everything for the most part sucked!.I was literally just existing from day to day, with me hating my life and myself more as each…

Welcome Back

Hi people, it has been a long ass time since I posted oh! chei. In the time I haven't been here, I have returned to the states and I had so many mental blog posts, it's a shame I don't remember them. I hope everyone has been doing well, besides fretting about being single or married.:D. I have been trying to get back to some semblance of my life back but I happened to be under the weather and just now managed to have my cold and cough under control. I hope I can come back and do one last wrap up of my naija blog post. Hope everyone has a fabulous evening!

PS - The whole getting to know Taynement deal was an epic fail. I only got one question and I will be answering it in my next blogpost.

Once again, have a wonderful day/night!

SheWolf in the Closet, My Ass!

Excuse my recent blog title but anyone who is on my facebook should have an idea of what I am about to rant about. So I just saw Shakira's "Shewolf" video. (Youtube if you can, as usual MTN is PMSing and won't allow me find a video. the full length one might be in spanish). Anyways, I like Shakira but as I watched the video, I felt anger slowly rise in me and by the end I was utterly and thoroughly vexed.

You see, I totally get the music business is still a business. I totally get that sex sells but seriously at this point I feel insulted. If you watched the video, I dare you to tell me that you did not see Beyonce, Ciara and Madonna in that video even though Shakira was the one dancing? They are all trying to show us that they are the sexiest and the bendiest of them all. I mean Shakira should have just gone naked, why wear a flesh colored leotard? just prancing around her monkey cage, feeding me her juiceless ass cheek..uuughhh! whoooosah! I mean does anyone see my…

Listening to the Lines

If there's anything you have learned about me from my blog, you must know by now that I am a huge, huge fan of music. Doesn't matter what kind, as long as my ears are happy, we are good to go. I am always on the hunt for new music and part of how I find new music is from TV shows. I am watching a tv show and my ears are primed to catch the first strums of music goodness, soon as I catch it, the next step is frantically googling the few lyrics I could eke out while adding my voice recognition skillz and voila a new song is added to the library.

Anyway, I have been wanting to blog all day but had no idea what to blog about.
