You know the concept of a Naija buffet restaurant is a little puzzling to me. I mean, what do you eat? Most of our foods are so heavy that I wonder if maybe that's the genius of it? I mean after you eat one wrap of fufu or eba, will you now have space for fried yam or rice or add beans to it. Quite interesting.
Jennifer Lawrence is quite popular and all right now and the media says she's every girl's girl. I was just thinking while i do like the girl, I don't think she's like hot. She seems normal. Speaking of hotness, Gwyneth Paltrow as People's most beautiful woman in the world is quite hilarious. My picks - If current relevance (no movies/music or anything out at the moment) doesn't matter, I would have picked Charlize Theron and if relevance mattered, as much as I don't care for her, Sofia Vergara would have been a good pick. Her iron is quite hot now.
Man, have you watched the Central Park 5 documentary that aired on PBS? A doc on 5 teens who were wrongfully accused of raping a woman in Central Park and were sentenced to life. It eventually came out that they were wrongfully charged and were released. I hate injustices man. I still haven't finished it. These kids were like 14. I mean, how do you get those years back?? Ugh.
Yesterday, was talking to one of our vendors who just had a kid, I asked if he planned on having more and he said he has no idea but if he never does he is still content. He was told that he'd never be able to have kids and chances were low and he still can't believe he has one and is so grateful for that. That really touched my heart. The little blessings we take for granted and also a reminder by God that ultimately it's his call, no matter what Doctors say.
Speaking of kids, a bunch of my friends are in baby phase and boy have i heard my fill of baby/pregnancy stories and it's all different. Was talking to a friend of mine about cramps and she said she hadn't had one cuz she is still breastfeeding. I was like whaa? (her kid is about to be 3). Oh that's something else I just learned through "baby phase", didn't know as long as you're breast feeding you get no period. Yes i am clueless. Anyways, back to the matter I know I wouldn't want to still be breastfeeding my kid when he is 3 but as she explained her reason, I remembered what one of my friecnds told me. She said having a kid made her realize the competitiveness among moms, whether consciously or not. She said it sometimes feels like they try to one up or think they are better cuz they did xyz as opposed to xyz. So i pushed out any judgemental thoughts I might have had about my friend still breastfeeding cuz ultimately everyone has their styles and just like relationships, its whatever works for you.
Ok so, I may or may not get heat for this but I don't get the concept/term - bisexual. I'll explain. I get the meaning and what it is, I just don't "buy" it. I think people are born gay or straight. I don't think people are born bisexual. That's a man made choice. A bisexual person is someone who doesn't care who they love or have sex with, man or woman as long as they get love. I also think anyone who identifies as bisexual has a stronger leaning to either being gay or straight.
The whole Jason Collins announcement was interesting. If someone comes out as gay and supports gay movement - they are applauded but if you speak about your beliefs and how it doesn't align - you are condemned. Now don't get me wrong, I am all for acceptance but if someone like Chris Broussard did speaks against homosexuality as being a sin etc but isn't being hateful about it just being honest, I don't see why he should be vilified. I remember one of these beauty contests, the contestant was asked about gay marriage and she gave her answer as a christian. No hate or nothing and comments were that she gave the "wrong" answer.
There's always something in this life. Imagine being the healthy sibling/twin to a sickly sibling/twin. I mean, it's great to have your health but it sucks being the neglected child and everyone else is fawning over the sick child who would probably trade anything to be healthy.
This whole Plan B pill being available OTC for kids 15 and up is weird. I think it should have been done at like 18 and if under 18, there should be parental consent.
There is a high increase in auto correct errors (even from me) and it irks me.
Umm so oops, I guess I did have a number of thoughts, hehe. You guys have become miserly with your comments :( but if you can, I'd love to hear what you have to say or your thoughts on these. Lengthy comments welcome. Have a wonderful weekend, be safe and stay blessed!!!
