My To-Do List

Fairy God Mother Lucid decided that since this is my last year being in my twenties, she would give me a to-do list to accomplish before I hit the big 3-0. I dunno if the title was supposed to be "Ways to ruin my life (and credit) haha but I loved it and it made me smile, so thanks Mama Lucid.

Enjoy:

1) Call in sick to work and take yourself shopping, watch a matinee and eat copious amounts of your favorite ice cream in an outdoor cafe.

2) Max out your credit card for no reason. Buy your self an entire wardrobe if you want but max out one card because next year, you will have to start being “responsible.”

3) Get drunk at a bar/night club and dance on a table.

4) Get kicked out or a bar.

[side bar] you don’t have to do number 4 and number 5 on the same night. Pace yourself girl.[/sidebar]

5) Drive really really fast.

6) Get in a fist fight.

7) Have a one night stand.

8) Do NOT date your one night stand.

9) Show up to work still drunk from the night before. Tell everyone you caught a bug. No one will know the difference.

10) Stalk your crush and steal an item of clothing that belongs to him, preferably a shirt. Sniff it when you dream of him as your baby daddy.

11) Cry like a baby when that guy that you had dinner with did not call. And you really really liked him.

12) When you feel like things are going really bad and you feel overwhelmed, allow yourself to have a meltdown.

13) Don’t feel embarrassed about your meltdown. You just saved yourself some serious dough on shrink bills in the future.

14) Let that guy that has been harassing you take you out to dinner. Then order the most expensive items on the menu.

15) Have sex in a public bathroom and the back of a car, but not on an airplane bathroom. This is post 9/11.

16) Date two guys that are friends. The order in which you date them is up to you.

17) Discontinue useless friendships.

18) Wear something that is so NOT you and will raise eyebrows and a possible write-up at work.

19) Have a drink before noon.

20) Spend a night in jail for a misdemeanor that has to do with any of the above.


You can make it more fun for yourself and figure out which ones I have already done. Naturally, I am not gonna tell you which ones they are :p

Have a lovely week my people!

I like this song a lot

Funny

Stolen from another blog..

I should add that I don't believe all men are assholes or are all basically the same. #carryon







The original Spartacus from the show - Spartacus, Andy Whitfield passed away today at the age of 39 from cancer. May his soul rest in peace.

+1

Well, I blinked and suddenly it's my birthday. I am 29 today and I am thankful to see another day. Thankful for my health, my family, my friends and everything else. I was too exhausted to be excited as I usually am but my friend dragged me out and I got a bit of excitement going - maybe it was the Ciroc in my system lol. It's amazing but I know at least 4 or is it 5 other people who share this date with me. I got a little patch of sadness during the night but meh such is life, guess it's time to close the door and move on. Let the healing process begin.

Thank you to everyone for their birthday wishes, I truly appreciate it.

Happy Birthday to me :)

Randoms

Howdy Ho people, how goeth life? Once again I am glad it's Friday. Happy new month people, we are into the -mber months, which means it's going to fly by and before you know it, a new year is upon us. Tick.Tock people lol. Speaking of time flying, I went to see a friend who had a baby and it's so weird to see college friends I partied with being parents, some on their second child. My sleep cycle is still shit, but I did try Yoga on saturday. I definitely rolled my eyes a lot but it wasn't so terrible, I'll go back. Oh yea, I got into my journal for a few days and now it's being tossed aside. I should just accept writing isn't for me jo. Anyhue, let's random.

Oh twitter, twitter, twitter...

It's funny how I saw someone's tweet that said they use their skype more than their phone. Having a bb that's definitely not the case for me, in fact whenever my skype pops up(it automatically comes on when my laptop is switched on), it says: Your contacts have not been very active lately.

I read this somewhere: " I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with". I couldn't agree more. I remember asking a friend of mine how he knew his wife was who he wanted to spend the rest of his life with and one of his reasons was he could be silent with her. Comfortable silence is highly underrated.

I still get surprised when people do nice things for me.

It's funny how Tia and Tamera are identical twins but somehow Tamera is prettier.

I got a number of people telling me to make my own video for Oliver. While $2500 is awesome money, I'd rather not have a public video of me shaking yansh to Oliver, there's enough already out there anyways (I'd totally murk it tho! hehe)

Internalizer toh bad.

For anyone who watches Breaking Bad, it irks me that Walt still uses a flip phone. Whenever I see one in real life actually, I am still taken aback.

If I had the opportunity, I don't think I'd want to date a celeb whether a Nigerian one or an American. I don't think I could handle it.

Ripe has been added to my yucky, dirty sounding vocab list.

One of my promotional events for work is sponsoring a Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. I often wonder what it would be like if someone who was vehemently opposed to the gay and lesbian lifestyle were in this position. Would they decline to work the event?

You know, when you don't get to see your parents often, the first thing that hits you when you do is how much they've aged over the years. It's a bit sad.Makes you very aware of their mortality.

I haven't been to a Zumba class in a while, so I went last week. After the class, I had a number of people come up to compliment me on my dancing and one lady actually said she can tell I do African dance (shio!)and for a second I missed my old dance group, I could totally return but men rehearsals were a bitch. I need to get back to things I used to do before school ate up my time like volunteering.

This week 2 of my friends who didn't know each other asked me for my ring size. I thought it was funny considering. In case you were wondering, I have no idea what it is.

Oh yea if you ever have this conversation where a friend asks are you single? "I know a guy, he is xyz years old, he is tall and cute and ready to marry/searching/looking to settle down". I can guarantee you 95% of the time that the dude is Igbo.

Cancer is a bitch.

Finally, I read a blog post in which a male commented saying: "Hell, should it not be fairly easier to be kind, courteous, and charming while remaining distant then unnecessarily going the extra yard for someone you’re pretty ambivalent on?". He was talking about a guy's attitude to a girl he isn't really feeling anymore. At first, I agreed with him, cuz really I don't think one needs to be a jackass just because you aren't feeling a chick anymore, but I took a second and thought about it and I wondered, how can you be kind, courteous and charming and be distant at the same time? is that possible?

Okay people, that's all I got. I am headed to the city that has my heart tomorrow and as usual I am overpacking. I am looking forward to it, I need it and I intend to have an awesome time. Naughty little me already found an aphrodisiac bar called OralFix, I totally intend to try it out and see if the side effects they promise are actually true. It's going to be a busy week for me, I come back Monday and immediately head out of town again for work on Tuesday but I am grateful for the distraction. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Once again I have two songs for today.

The first comes from Amos Lee whose music is a combination of like folk, rock, soul and whatever else. I just think this song is so "pretty" and chilled. I love it.

Amos Lee - Hello Again

You can't go wrong with R. Kelly. I like this song because it's sexy in a mature way and not all sleazed up as is characteristic of him.

R.Kelly - Taxi Cab
