Friday Randoms

Hi guys, I just blinked and we have reached another friday. Like joke, like joke February don kpai and the year is speeding on by. Shoutout to naija bloggers oh, make una enjoy your public holiday and maybe use it to celebrate the return of the President. Anyways, I have had(and still having) a weird week, so let's get to it.

You know, a threesome is one of those things I am pretty sure I will never do in my life.

I forgot to mention my bright spot on vals day. Because we are corny like that it was when my best friend called me to wish me a happy valentine's and said I was her "the one", we are just not attracted to each other haha, love you Hoagie!

The priest preached about temptation the other day and my first thought was why am I not tempted to go to the gym?lol

My mother used the term "Put a ring on it" the other day. I laughed.

Speaking of rings, it's engagement season yo, every other week I hear of someone getting engaged. 2011 is going to be a busy one.

There is nothing worse than lying on the bed and getting comfortable and your remote is way across the room staring at you and saying : haha, you have to get out of position and come get me.

For the first time in God knows how long, I might miss part of the Oscars due to work :(

Speaking of work, I still can't thank God enough for my job. Thank you Baba.

You know what's annoying?If someone mentions that their parent(mom or dad) is a douche or implies they are no good, and someone counters with "but they are still your dad/mom". No shit sherlock, I didn't know. Gosh people can be so annoying with their so called, unasked for opinions. *woosah*

I was singing Robin Thicke's "Sex Therapy" the other day and I don't know when I said T-erapy instead of The-rapy.:(

If you really think about it, the whole concept of marriage is insane!

How do deaf people know how to speak?As in they can't hear people speaking so how do they make out words and know how to sound it out?

Sad thoughts: I feel for Susan Boyle, all that new found money and fame and she is so lonely to the point of depression. Loneliness is a biatch. How about the olympian skater whose mom had an unexpected heart attack in Vancouver. How heartbreaking.

There is a group on America's Best Dance Crew called Heavy Impact. Bunch of heavy guys who move so well. They spend LOTS of time practicing, which is burning calories, and they are still heavy doesn't that negate the whole working out thing? I have always suspected that whole deal is based on genes.

I had a strange dream about yam. I hate the Charles Barkley Taco Bell ad.Blogsville is dry.Simon Cowell is mean but ohsosexy.I used to think quivering lips while you sing means you were awesome, so I used to quiver my lips as I sang.I love the bob hairstyle, all variations.

I find this ad offensive:
">

That's all folks, I am blah, hence the blah tone. Enjoy this song produced by Justin Timberlake, I love thsi song especially at 3min 45secs. Y'all have a good weekend.

I totally had something else in mind to write about but I am so tired, my head is pounding, I just did terribly in an exam yesterday and I still bummed about it even though it was all my fault and I have to pick myself up and study for another exam on Saturday. My back seems to be flaring up and I am on Day 3 of this back pain that won't go away.I feel so unsettled and scattered but such is life, it doesn't stop and you have to keep going. Anyways, I love this song and I love the lyrics. I love sad songs(Neefemi I smell a music monday!). I love both versions.One by Fleetwood Mac aka Stevie Nicks(who wrote it) and Dixie Chicks. Enjoy both and tell me which you prefer. Have a happy rest of the week, see you at Club Friday Randoms.

Took my love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too, well

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too, well, I'm getting older too

So take this love and take it down
Yeah, and if you climb a mountain and you turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide brought down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well maybe, well maybe, well maybe
The landslide will bring you down


Stevie Nicks

Greetings my Earthling Bloggers, it is I, your Martian Blogger, Taynement. How now? I feel like it's been so long, I have had a long week and I am currently in the air flying back to my warm, cozy bed that makes me lose all sense of productivity once I get in it. I have two exams looming over my head and so much work to do that I pray the good Lord for strength and guidance. My head is blank but let's see what I can think of:

First off, is there anybody else like me who totally forgets that the winter olympics is going on until you are watching the news or absent mindedly glancing at the tv and you see some crazy white person flipping or crashing in the snow? I mean the other day at the hotel bar, grown men watching women do something to the ice so some metal object gets to the middle or so, luging they call it? *blank stare*

As I was typing crazy white person i got paranoid because there is a white person seating across from me and it looks like he is staring at my screen hehe..

I can't remember if I randomed about it before but I thought about it again and it is very easy to cross the line and play with fire.

I used to think I had a boring life but looking back, maybe I really don't. I know sometimes I should exercise common sense but you know a little mistake every now and then is allowed. I don't want to grow up and tell my kids how perfect I was and how every decision was well thought out and the best one, because truth is noone is perfect, so even if you may feel bad about not being so "level headed" or whatever you only live once - live it to the fullest.

I saw an old man with athritis today, he was a waiter at the restaurant. I felt so bad for him. Old age sucks, it's when your body turns against you and does things you don't want it to do.

Oooh, this dude that has been smiling at me since boarding just walked down and smiled again, he is a cutie.

No ifs, and or buts about it, I want to be loved. As in the kind where the man just totally adores you. I don't know if it exists but it'll be nice to have.

Oh yeah, how were yall's valentine's day? As usual, I did nothing. I was by myself and I was fine till evening and 2 things happened that made me wonder if something was really wrong with me. I'm still not convinced that something isn't but wetin man go do?

Speaking of love, a dear friend of mine who I have had MANY ups and downs with just got engaged and I am super ecstatic for her. I wish them all of the best.

So, I don't know if any of y'all read my Precious article. Well, the driver who picked me up as soon as I got in the car was saying that he just read an article about Precious and he doesn't mean to offend me or think it's because I am fat or african american but he can't watch that movie because he can't get over how fat she is. That she is "morbidly obese" and they are encouraging it and she is not even a real actress and what other roles can she get after this (I informed him she already got a tv role with Laura Linney on Shotime). We sha went back and forth and I told him I get his point but that shouldn't deter him from watching the movie, he said he would wait for HBO to get it. Turns out he was a movie buff, so we discussed Oscar movies(he kept getting the names mixed up, he was old sha) and he asked for my blog addy and said he wished we were driving further so we could discuss more. It was really cool sha, either way my point is that most white people I believe are not seeing precious cuz of the weight kini sha. feel free to disagree.

A whole me, I cannot remember the last time I watched TV, my poor DVR will be working overtime.

It's lent time people, anyone giving up anything or trying to be better in anything?

For as long as I know I have been whining for bigger boobs, my boobs are definitely bigger now and I don't know how I feel about it.

I'm sorry my randoms were sucky but it was all scattered from my pounding brain so enjoy my song that reflected my thoughts all week:

Friday Randoms

I'm so bummed:(. So this weekend is supposed to be a weekend of debauchery and fun. It's All Star weekend and some select group of friends and people I know usually get together and have a hell of a time, we've had it twice here in Texas, we've had it in Atlanta, it's always a good time. We've been all psyched for this weekend as in people are flying in from different states but no Mother Nature had to go pms'ing and hit us with snow from all corners. I mean, since when did it start snowing here? Flights are being cancelled left, right and center but lai lai, it's going down this weekend! Come snow or sleet, so say a prayer for me and my compadres so we can live it up this weekend! Alrighty, I don't have much this week because this was a hectic week butI feel better - Random time!:


Oops before I start, I want to address two things on my previous randoms, most of you misunderstood the tampon thing, it wasn't for anything sexual it's so you can tell the guy "I'm on my period" and also I do realise there are showers in Nigeria but that is not the norm, more people bathe with bowl and bucket, those were who I was refering to.

Glory be to the higher powers, Dear John is out, I don't have to live through those corny ads anymore!

I will never understand how important pets are to ndi obodo oyibo.

I have a bad habit. I am an impatient person, especially when it comes to traffic. So sometimes when I really just want to be home and chilling or trying to make it somewhere on time and I stumble across an accident. I get mad at the parties involved, because I feel they wasted my time by having an accident at an inconvenient time.(horrible i know)

The bad thing about a new neighborhood is finding "your spots". That great chinese place, that good tailor that alters just right etc

I'm bad I know but when I look at men's fingers I automatically think it tells me how their kini must look like. Not necessarily size, just overall look. This dude at work has the stubbiest, chubbiest fingers and I just figure that's what his downstairs is like.

Let's talk about Pep is a great reality show. It's more than likely staged but I love the format. Now if only someone would tell Pep about dem horrid wigs she be wearing.

I love old cards and letters. I recently moved and in the process of unpacking I found a whole bunch of cards and letters and junk(really, my college acceptance letter, my roomate assignment, my bills from college - I graduated since 2004!). Old cards remind you why you love someone especially if you are mad at them.

I HATE that Bedrock song. HATE it!

I think it's sad that in the video of Adam Lambert's "Whaddya want from me"(love that song) where he is holding a picture of his loved one, the person is blurred out. Obviously because he is a gay man.

Anyone read the John Mayer article. He said a lot of things I don't know where to start. He did call Jessica Simpson, a "sexual napalm". That she was awesome in bed and he was addicted to her. I just kinda figured she would be a dud. If you are interested here is the link, it's long but hilarious. I hear people are offended by his alleged racial comment but i don't see the fuss - http://www.playboy.com/articles/john-mayer-playboy-interview/index.html?page=1

A condom ad just came on, do they only come on at night?

It must suck to meet your soulmate after you are married - Yes, ideally your mate should be your soulmate but we usually mold who we come across first into our soulmate. Another convo another day.

I wish you all a wonderful happy valentine's day. As a PVR - Perpetual Valentine Roaster - I shall be doing nothing, maybe homework but I hope you all have a beautiful one. Couples, show your appreciation for your S.O, commercialized day or not, Singles - shower your love on yourself. Either way, as the video says: Keep Dancing!

Signed, Vexed Nigerian...

So this chic right here wants to rant.

Ok, so Ghana is like totally jocking our style and I am actually a little miffed by it. Remember growing up how Ghanaians take style full our country, we come say "ghana must go". Well indeed, they left and the way my imagination works, I see them leaving our country, snapping their fingers and saying "eh eehn, you are chasing us away?You will see!". Now what don't they have over us? Their education system is so good that those(nigerians) that can't afford overseas send their kids there, them get light, where is the light from - Us!, See Nollywood movies dem don crossover, anyone wonder why ghanians play nigerians in nigerian movies but nigerians don't play ghanaians in ghanaian movies? Even the movies sef, have you seen Perfect Picture? have you seen Wind in my Hair(or whatever name Naija movies have)can you compare the two? I thought so, they have left us in the dust.Just last week, didn't they just beat us in soccer, insult upon injury. The one that hit near and dear to my heart and is the latest one in the music industry is that Ghanaian singers/rappers whatever have started remaking our songs so much so that even Ghanaians think that they were originally sung(sang?) by Ghanaians. Chei! Knowing their history, they will soon master it and take over, naaaaaah! we got music in the bag(right?). Anyways, what can we do? Am I overreacting or is anybody with me?Is there anything we can do?:(. Sigh, I feel better already...I went to listen to some music. What did I go listen to you ask? It's the Ghanaian version of Wande Coal's "Kiss your hand", featuring W.Ceezy himself. I didn't like it at first but now I gbadun it.

Tell me if you like it and be sure to listen for the ghanian rap, it cracks me up.

Have a great week!

Friday Randoms

I have a long day tomorrow, so I figured I'd post this early:

I hate water so much it's sad. I drink the most water at the gym. Speaking of which, gym?what is that? the poor thing hasn't seen me in 2 weeks and probably won't anytime soon. I miss you gym:(, hello rolls :)

Sometimes it's pressure being Nigerian(here is where some people preach "noone can pressure you but yourself, yada yada...I'm going to tune you out now). Nigerians can be so ambitious working in the prestigious law firms, accounting firms, consulting firms(y'all know Nigerians run Accenture) and they are usually top of the class in school. When you don't fit into any of those and all you are interested in is Lady Gaga (hehe) and silly pop culture, it's an odd feeling...just sometimes.

(I watched a marathon wedding show, hence the following):

Why is it bad luck to see the bride in her dress but not the groom in his tux?

Does being married equal being boring per naija culture, as per the certain things you can't do?

I watched Rich Bride, Poor Bride for the first time, all the black couples were in Poor Bride(couple on a budget) which isn't a bad thing.

Who watched the grammys? During Jamie's performance, when his sister rolled on to the stage, raise your hand if you thought it was "Precious", don't lie!

So on HIMYM(if you don't know what that is - SOL)it was declared that every marriage has a reacher and a settler. Reacher - the one who married above them, Settler - the one who married below them. Yay?Nay?

I heard the funniest thing this week. We all agree that Agro(the state of horniness) na bastard *refer to Banky's "Teef my kele" - Eldee confirmed it*. Well every now and then you know when you want a lirru action but not the full thing or you want the full thing but you know it's not the wise thing to do because of the party involved? Well someone I know came up with a solution to prevent horizontal mamboing....She stuck a tampon in it.Maybe it's just me that was the most hilarious thing I heard all week.

One of my personality traits is that I am social. I find it easy to mix with people and talk to people and at parties I am the one dancing the night away, flirting etc, sometimes people say things that make me feel like I should feel bad about it but I've decided that I don't feel bad about it.

Pizza Hut Sucks. Papa Johns is whatsup. Pepsi over Coke.

My brain is jolted when I see a fat vegetarian. My brain is programmed to thing vegetarians are skinny.

How do Naija couples have romantic shower in naija with bucket and bowl?

I want to go to an Indian wedding *pouts*. Intervention is a powerful show, drugs is a helluva bad thing.

It's bad enough when you have an unexpected pregnancy but unexpected twins..whew!

Before I forget, missed the Grammys?Do yourself a favor and read this writeup of the performances, I absolutely loved this ----> http://msroyalreigns.blogspot.com/2010/02/groovers-in-heart-deee-lite_01.html

And I think I am done. You want music?hmm, what shall I render? Enjoy Fotografia by Juanes ft Nelly Furtado, it's all in spanish. Have a lovely weekend!
