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

Shoutout to Youtube for just being awesome. Actually shout out to Google. Alright I am out for real. Kisses!

Hmmmmmmm, feels like you've been on a roll lately, updating and updating.
Good stuff.

Why are you gossiping about me? (re:skype)
I could never date a celeb. I miss Yoga, why are yoga classes here so expensive? I've never tried Zumba.

Happy Labor day weekend!
