Long Time No See

Hi-hi guys. Long time no see. Thanks to those who looked around and realized they hadn't seen/heard from me and decided to reach out lol. You all haven't missed much in my life, which is probably why it was so easy not to write for a while.

The holidays are always a weird time for me. Growing up, we always did holidays big. The whole family got together for dinner and laughs and what have you. We'd alternate between going to my Aunt Cathy's house for Thanksgiving and my Aunt Jean's for Christmas (and vice versa). We'd also have something at our house with my mom's side too. Even though we've been in Florida for 7 holiday seasons now, i'm still not used to not having holiday celebrations with the fam. This year is extra sucky because my sister and her fam aren't coming down to spend Christmas with us. *Sad face*

So lets see, what's been happening? I spent Thanksgiving with my grandparents on the other side of the state. Went to Atlanta for a lil while (for like the 3rd time in the past 6 months.) Then i went to my Soror's wedding in South Florida on my bday and came back with over 50 bug bites on my legs and feet. I pray they are mosquito bites and not anything crazy like bed bug bites or something. I got that sweet blood. Bugs just love me. The wedding was on the beach so im just going to go out on a limb and say that's where the bug bites came from. I also came back sleep deprived because the people in the hotel room next door to me were have tons and tons of sex all weekend and putting on a damn performance. It couldn't possibly have been that great considering each go round only lasted a few minutes. But what do i know. Not to mention all the drama...apparently whomever the young man was banging was not his wife/girlfriend as evidenced by the very angry phone conversations that were had in the middle of the night.

Sidenote: a special thank you to the person who hit me up at 4:54am to wish me happy birthday and then after waking me up told me i should go back to sleep. (-_-) lol, much appreciated my friend.

with the beautiful bride


fly mamacitas
after getting lost on the way to the reception lol

Wishing you all a happy and festive holiday season and blessed and prosperous new year.

Chemistry

Love this song!




Its simple chemistry
but the equation is so complex
timing is everything
the combination is more than sex

This song is freaking amazing. To think i only found it because it was the theme song of a webseries on youtube (RoomieLoverFriends). Thank God for youtube mehn! Where hollywood refused to give black talent a chance, there are so many brothas and sistas out there doing it themselves.

Issa Rae for President ya'll! And i'm out.

(Have a great week)

Boom, There it is

So President Obama is still leader of our country. Romney apparently didn't write a concession speech (only an acceptance speech, pobrecito) and refused to concede Ohio for a while...even though winning Ohio and the rest of the states that were still being counted wouldn't have won him the election...which led to me being up until the wee hours of the night waiting to hear the speeches.

But this has been a landmark election night in a lot of ways that have nada to do with the presidency.


  • Maryland and Maine have voted to legalize same sex marriage (Washington and Minnesota are voting as well and its pretty much 50/50 at this point- we'll have to wait and see what happens)
  • Colorado has voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults 21+ with regulations on growers and sellers. Interesante!
  • Florida has continued their fuckery and inability to conduct an election properly. Around 1am poll workers said screw this and left, leaving almost 200,000 ballots uncounted, over 2000 ballots were thrown out because they weren't signed, and by midnight (AFTER the election had already been called) people were still in line waiting to vote (which i respect).
  • Oklahoma (also on some bullshigiddy) has gotten rid of affirmative action. *insert eye roll* I wonder how my grandma voted on that one. I should call and ask lol.
  • The 1st openly lesbian woman, disabled woman, and asian-american woman have been elected to Congress.
  • Puerto Rico is here again with their nonsense. This is like the 4th or 5th time that they are deciding whether or not they wanna be our 51st state. Every other time its been like 49/51 type split. Wonder what its gonna be this time around.
On another note-
  • Mr. Romney's speech was a crock but hey, this man just lost the presidency. I don't blame him. I'd be mad/sad as $#!+ too.
  • Obama's speech on the other hand was worth waiting for. That is one smooooooooooooooooooth brother! I'm trying to find me one.
  • Of course Michelle's outfit was fab and her hair was laid. That lady is awesome.
  • Obama's camp was singing and swaying to Lets Stay Together. I swear some of those people were singing like it was a praise and worship session and others had absolutely no rhythm. Funny sight to see. 
  • Shephard Smith had me in stitches all night man. He's too much. A.B. Stoddard on the other hand was just tap-dancing on my nerves all evening.
Anywho its 2am and everyone is finally done speaking, for tonight at least. Congrats to Barry-O and Uncle Joe on 4 more years. Prayers for some actual bipartisanship so we can move the country forward (i'm looking at you Congress/Republicans!)

Tumblr

Tumblr is crazy. I love it but its crazy. One second you can scrolling past a perfectly innocent gif of spongebob making a krabby patty and the next you're scrolling past an orgy (which is why i tend not to long onto tumblr around other people...don't want folks thinking i'm more perverted than i actually am).

Just now i was scrolling through my dash and i came across this pic of some chick smoking crack. Now, at the moment, this photo has like 150 notes (likes and reblogs for those not familiar with Tumblr lingo), and not a single mention of the fact that this chick has a freaking crack pipe to her lips. Apparently i'm the only person concerned about this lady being a potential junkie.

Oh and did i mention shorty is butt-ass nekkid in this photo? Yeah. When i say there is absolutely no redeeming quality to that photo...lol. And to add nonsense to the ingredient, the chick in question is the one who posted the pic in the first place...and her husband was the first person to reblog it. Is that whats really hot in the streets? I mean...if thats how they get down, God bless 'em. But shwooosh.

Anyway, so yeah, I enjoy my tumblr life. But that place gets crazy as hayle sometimes.

Performing my civic duty


It was soooooo crowded. I can't imagine what its going to be like on actual election day. Glad i got it done and over with early. The ballot was lengthy as all hell too. In addition to the President, there were also 11 constitutional amendments to vote on among other things. In all there were 26 items on the ballot. The hell. I'm really glad i took a peek at my sample ballot when i got it. If i had gone into the voting booth sight unseen i would have cried real thug tears (and it would have taken much longer).

Funny, the guy who gave me my ballot was like "aww, is this your first time voting" For a solid 5 seconds i was just like "what???" I turned 18 when Bush was elected the 2nd time (or the 1st time depending on how you feel about the situation lol). But i'll just pretend to take as him giving me a compliment on my youthful appearance. And then some lady called me a gentleman which was really weird. I mean, my hair was down and the cleavage was on full display. I understand the joke she was trying to make but...yeah.

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone. And happy new month.

These People Have Come Again


In the span of about 24 hours i've gotten wind of 3 engagements and 1 wedding invitation. When the hell did my life become about this? I'm lying, my life has been a nonstop barrage of engagements, weddings, babies, home buying, etc for the past 3-4 years (not to talk of all the people who started making babies immediately after high school). Everyone is "growing up" which is just sooo not cool.

In addition to these wonderful announcements i've also been part of a number of "you're getting older, when are you going to settle down, etc" conversations. And i let my mother know that i ran off and got married last week (lol...long story that i'll share at a later date) which only led to even more conversations about the settling down business. This type of stuff always comes in abundance, i don't know why.

Anywho, this latest wedding is taking place on my birthday. I don't know how i feel about that. This is the first time in like 5 years that my bday is on the weekend (and the last time it was on the weekend i spent my 21st bday celebrating someone else's graduation) and i'm gonna spend it at somebody's wedding?!? My mom says to look at the bright side, i have a free party to go to for my birthday and i don't even have to do the organizing lol. Whatever Mom. Guess i need to start working on finding myself a date.

Weirdo

TGIF right?!?

So i went to the store yesterday and as i was getting close to the door, another lady was approaching from the opposite direction. She made eye contact, smiled and said a cheerful hello (in a completely no homo kinda way). In my head i thought, aw how polite, so i smiled and said my hellos back. Then you know what happened? This hoe closed the damn door in my face! I was literally like 2.5 steps behind her. Instead of holding the door long enough at least for me to catch it and let myself in, she let the shit shut in my face. And then she did it again when we got to the next set of doors! The second time she barely even opened it up enough for herself to get through. Rude piece of garbage. UUUUURRRGGGHHHH! That's not even why i planned on blogging today but that just burned my toast!

ANYWAY, what i really came to chat about was something i'm sure most of you have already figured out about me by now. And that, is the fact that i'm a freaking weirdo! My interest is piqued by the most ridiculous things. So i ran into this beautiful man that i haven't seen in a while (he was abroad for a bit) and when we went to greet one another, he gave me a hug and said "hey *insert Lady Ngo's surname*, how have you been" and i damn near fainted. I can't tell you how sexy it is to me that he pronounced my last name so perfectly and with such ease. I have no idea why that was so sexy to me...but it was. Sigh. If only he weren't such a total whore. SMH

This also amuses me:

See jamb question

I had so many different things i wanted to talk about but i'd much rather just have a laugh instead.




I saw this vid earlier in the day when i was flipping through tumblr. (yeah i tumbl)

totally off-topic but i seriously don't understand my Naija sistas and this hair business. For as much money as people spend for these wigs and weaves and things it should be against the law for you to come outside with your head looking anyhow. I always just assumed it was because of the heat/weather condition. But then i see ladies whose hair looks fabu and i'm left scratching my head wondering wtf happened with everyone else. Dry stringy ponytails, lacefronts pulled down to your eyebrows, bangs that stick out like a chicken. C'mon man. Not ok.

I type this as i sit here with at least an inch or two of new growth looking a hot ass mess. Pot, meet kettle.

Foodie things

I am very VERY particular about my food. I'm probably the most finicky eater on the planet. If it doesn't sound right, look right, or smell right...i'm not eating it. Nope. And even the stuff i do eat, it needs to be prepared juuuuuuuust so. When it comes to Nigerian food, i'm strictly a snacks/small chops kinda girl. Things that i always assumed people couldn't get wrong. But i've definitely been disappointed in the past.

How can you make meat pie with no meat? Literally just potato, onion and vegetable. Who does that? Such people deserve 2 hot slaps. One for false advertisement and another for good measure! Similarly, fish is not an acceptable substitute unless explicitly stated. I can't imagine the level of disappointment. It must be similar to opening your fridge, seeing a tub of ice cream and finding egusi inside instead (or at least thats what i heard lol) I did meet one girl who made the absolute best meat pie i've ever had in my entire life! I asked her if she was married and offered to pay her bride price on the spot lol.

I went to a party and there was puff-puff there. Of course i was excited because i only know like 1 person that ever makes puff puff and she doesn't make it often (and i refuse to make it myself). I go to bite into my snack and damn near lost a tooth! Puff Puff should not be harder than chin chin. Please take note.

Another party i went to, i got a nice big heaping helping of jollof rice. Like super huge portion. Now i know most people prefer "party rice" but I do not. And had i known that thats what was going down i would've eaten something else lol. That smoky flavor was sooooooo overpowering. It literally felt like i was eating charcoal. All i could see in my head was someone back in their backyard cooking the rice over a log and open flame lol. A lil smoke is okay but i still feel like i should be able to taste the rice.

Ah, this life. I feel bad for any potential spouse that feels like i should do all the cooking. Maybe i should put that in a pre-nup. Thou shall not cheat, philander, nor file for divorce due to issues relating to my cooking and thine palate.

Disclaimer: I mean no offense to those who enjoy hella smoky jollof rice, rock hard puff puff, or meatless meat pie. 

Sidenote: man, the VP debate last night was a freaking slaughter. Biden went IIIIIIINNNNNNNNNN! Uncle Joe was having none the republicans' bullshiggidy and shenanigans last night!!! If he weren't married, he could definitely be my sugar daddy. Oh did i mention that i'm in the market for a sugar daddy (or to be a kept woman)? Cuz that's the back-up plan in case this whole finding gainful employment thing doesn't work out. lol- i'm laughing but i'm serious.

Its my dawg's birthday

Happy Birthday to my second favorite big headed person in the world (you are old as hell too, if i do say so myself) :-D

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true
you're a pal and a confidante

And if you threw a wedding party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see
The biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a frieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeend!

In case you were wondering, i'm talking about this guy and yes, this is the theme song from The Golden Girls lol.

Thursday, October 4, 2012

well damn, at some point today i crossed the 100k pageview mark. yippee to me lol

Weighing In

I watched the Presidential debate last night. Let me just say epic fail for all parties involved, in my opinion.
Mittens was rude and condescending, danced around all the questions asked of him, and still hasn't even began to discuss how he plans to accomplish all these so-called goals he has for the country. I'm not interested in hearing "We have to cut the deficit" "Obamacare is the spawn of Satan" "moral values this" "our creator that". I wanna hear some gosh darn facts. I wanna hear a plan of action. And that crack about cutting funding to Sesame Street and possibly firing the moderator (while providing fodder for some hilarious internet memes) was not cute .
Obama looked bored out of his freaking mind. He didn't look the least bit interested in being there. Whether this was a tactical approach or not, we can only speculate, and i def have a theory or two. But I will agree that there were definitely a few times that he could've called Romney out on his bullskittles and didn't. Probably just wanted to get home with Michelle and beat it out the frame celebrate their 20th anniversary.
And that damn moderator. Worst moderator i've ever seen in my entire freaking life. Seriously, its to the point that i suspect that he was on the Romney/Ryan payroll. Romney was talking over him, cutting him off, jumping all over my President, just being an ass and moderator dude wasn't saying nothing. But then had the nerve to turn around and cut off my President mid-sentence. SMH

I can't wait to hear what Stephen Colbert and John Stewart have to say about this. I could use a freaking laugh after these fools raised my blood pressure through the roof.

Moving on:
I volunteered to review program proposals for a National Conference being hosted by a professional association i am part of in my field. Man...procrastination got the best of me and i ended up reviewing all 6 proposals like 2 days before they were due. Shameful. It was a lot more difficult than i thought it would be but it was definitely a good experience.
I'm kinda doing the same thing again but for a different association. This time i'm getting a start on it early. From now i have 3 weeks to get it done and i only have 3 sets of documents to go over.

Last thing. I've been reading lately...a lot. Lack of gainful employment will do that to you. Anywho, I read "Say You're One of Them" by Uwem Akpan. Well i only got to read 2 of the 5 stories in the book but the two i read were very well written. I also read Scandalicious by Allison Hobbs. Good book but it took a while to get going and the end was so rushed. This book taught me a bit about myself. I am no where near being a freak lol. There were some parts in that book that i had to completely skip over cuz i'm just not bout that life. The last book i read was Married on Mondays by HoneyB. I did a short review of a similar novel by her called Single Husbands (back when my blog was a toddler and the only friends it had were KitKat, Myne, Ibhade, and Sisi Yemmie) which is basically the same story but from the opposite gender's perspective. It was a really good read and it further solidified the fact that i can never be with a man that will let me make him my bitch lol.

Go Get It

Hello all. Hope everyone is doing well. It is October 1st, 2012. We have officially entered into the 4th quarter of the year. Today marks 52 years of independence for our beloved (and sometimes not so beloved) Nigeria. Today also marks 2 years since i started this blog. I didn't think i'd be around this long. And for those of you that are still along for the ride, please know that i appreciate you. For those i've lost along the way...yeah well. Shit happens.

Its a new day, a new week, a new month....go get your blessing.

Working at the Pyramid Tonight

Youtube is slowly taking over my life. The tv in my bedroom has literally turned into a bookshelf. Both my mother and my brother have actually come and asked me why i even have one since its never on lol. I asked them why the hell they have the ear to my door to know that my tv is never on. Boo-yah!

Over the past few months i have become quite enamored with the growing phenomenon that is the black webseries. Some of my favorites are:

The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl
The Unwritten Rules
The Couple
RoomieLoverFriends
Brothers With No Game (for my friends in the UK lol)

I've also developed a major jones for watching people cook. Partially for educational purposes, partially for entertainment. Whats so entertaining about watching people cook...i'm not really sure but it is what it is.

And finally, Youtube is responsible for bringing Frank Ocean into my life. For the longest time the only song i ever bothered to listen to by him was Novacane (which is still my jam) and even that i didn't hear fully for the first time until like 3 months after the video came out. Truth be told, i probably never would have even bothered listening to him if not for that whole "is he gay? is he straight? omg he might be singing about a man so i'm not going to listen to his music anymore!" bullshit. All i can say is that that is one TALENTED man! I don't give a damn if he's singing love songs to Hitler...his voice soothes the hell outta me and makes we want to stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon YES! (please dont ask lol). Like i literally just spent a good hour listening to random songs of his last night. The guy is just amazing. I really don't even know what else to say about him. And apparently he looks like Red (so says mommy dearest) lol...though i doubt that plays a role in this infatuation.

Pyramids (warning- there's definitely a bit of T & A in the vid so if you aren't at home or don't have an office door, you might wanna skip this one for now)
Thinkin Bout You
We All Try


 Annnnnnnnd with that...have a great week folks

Do You Mean It

I'm not a big fan of fake niceties in the first place, but if on Dec 15th you send me a message that says:
HBD WULLNP
I'm going to find it extremely hard not to slap your face to believe that you actually mean it. Why can't you write it out? If you took the time to form as if you care, then you could have taken the extra 30 seconds or so to write it out.

Nonsense (and ingredient)! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


For the benefit of the audience HBD WULLNP = Happy Birthday, wishing you long life and prosperity

This rant was brought to you by the letter L (for lazy mofo's who can't wish people a happy birthday properly)

Hope you're all having a great week folks :)

The Thirst Is Real

If you've been following this blog long enough, then you've heard read my ranting and raving about my love/hate relationship with facebook. Most of the hate revolves around stupid fb statuses (which have gotten even stupider since last time i ranted- didn't even think such was possible) and weirdos (usually Nigerian in origin- sorry) trying to hit on me/set me up for the 419 okie-doke.

Well my newest issue with the facebook is all these thirsty ass niggas on my friend list. Like seriously, if i have to see another post/update letting me know that so-and-so likes Big Ol Booties, Freaks Only, Smuts Exposed, The Best Strippers, DAMN Look at them Titties, She Got a Donk, etc...i might just slap someone.

Gone are the days where people had some semblance of shame and watched their porno in a dark quiet corner, in a locked room, using the incognito feature so that their dirty websites don't leave a smut trail in their browser history. Now we're not only looking at smut on facebook, but we don't even hide it. SMH



Let 'em know Spongebob!
Its honestly making me want to unfriend people. I mean, people really sit around looking at titties and ass all day? To the point that they have to bring their thirst for the female anatomy to fb? Google images ain't enough?

Sometimes writing is enough

I think i've hit a wall with this blogging thing. If you could see how many posts i've written and not posted. eh. Its crazy. There's at least 30 or so unpublished posts now...and that's after deleting a double digit number of them. Granted, some of them have been chilling in the drafts for months, a lot of them are just from this summer.

The wall i've hit is not even with writing. I have tons and tons and tons of stuff i could be writing about. Its literally with wanting to share. I have all these things i want to jot down. But once it gets time to hit the publish button, i just say screw it. Some things have just been silly things (you know me and my foolishness by now), some have been serious things, and a lot has been personal.

Oh man, that personal stuff. Ay dio! It has been a tumultuous summer. Scratch that, its been a tumultuous life! All kinds of things that i've kept buried for days weeks months years have been bubbling to the surface lately. All sorts of repressed memories, drama, trauma, nonsense, etc just popping up out of nowhere. Probably has something to do with the fact that i've pretty much not been doing anything lately, which gives my brain plenty of time to wander those dark recesses.

I thought i could blog about this stuff...but i guess i can't. I type these write-ups and feel the weight lifting off my shoulders. But then i go to publish it....nope, not happening.

I guess, sometimes, just writing is enough.

Pomo

This is just the cutest thing ever.


Sidenote, listening to and/or watching me try to pronounce kpomo is probably one of the funniest things in the universe. Hence, i just call it chicharron (cuz i'm latina like that) or cracklin (cuz i'm country like that) which is easier to say and is essentially the same thing- different animal.

Other sidenote: i was on youtube and i saw a video called "how to eat chin chin". I didn't think eating chin chin required an instructional manual.

It should be evident by now that i am hungry, hence the post.

Tuesday Thoughts

So apparently an autopsy was done on Chavis Carter and they've concluded that his death was a suicide. A left handed man who was searched and no gun found on his person and double hand-cuffed magically shot himself in the right temple. And the only noise the police officers heard was a thumping noise. I'm no expert but i'm pretty sure guns make more noise than that...and i've never heard of a gun that made thumping noises unless we're on some kind of new 2012 technology. So yeah, okay Arkansas. There are many many many days that i completely abhor this country.

I was walking into Target the other day when i passed a couple. The lady turned to me and said "he (the man she was walking with) just found out that i'm really a man" and walked off. (o_0)

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta was the most hilarious collection of complete and utter nonsense that i've ever seen. It surpassed Flavor of Live, Basketball Wives, Jersey Shore...everything.

The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives was an awesome read! In Love and Trouble: Stories of Black Women (Alice Walker) was pretty good too.

What on earth did D'Banj attempt to do to my beloved Kukere?!? That remix is just...smh!

I told my mom the other day that I was planning on voting for Mitt Romney. For a moment, i truly thought she was going to fly across the table and backhand me lol. Yeah, as if i could ever be a damn Republican. Bloody idiots, the lot of them!

Speaking of Republican shenanigans:

1: what doctors were you speaking with sir? Because a doctorate in underwater basket weaving does not give one authority on female anatomy and biological processes.
2: what the flying fuck is a "legitimate rape"?
3: are you freaking serious?

How i met your mother

If not for Issa Rae, i would rename this blog Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl. smh. How do you get tricked into meeting someone's parents??? It would help me greatly if someone out there would reassure me that I am not the only person that this type of stuff happens to. #ThanksInAdvance

Anywho, so yes i was tricked into meeting someone's parents. It was ridiculously awkward. I had no idea it was happening until we were already in the car and on the highway. Had we still been on the surface streets, i might have attempted a tuck-and-roll into traffic and walked back to my car. To make matters even worse, it was a long car ride. Like an hour. So for an hour i sat in the car sweating and fidgeting and checking my face in my compact. And the culprit in the matter had the nerve to ask why i was so freaking quiet. To which i couldn't help but respond with how could you do this to me?!? lol

In retrospect, it wasn't that bad. The siblings were cool (yes i was tricked into meeting them too). Dad was so cute with his *insert ethnicity* accent. He was so funny too, he had me rollin. Mom on the other hand...she was a tough one to crack. I honestly get the feeling that she may have been under the impression that i was a scallywag- mostly because one of the other siblings had a lady of um questionable character there. But after a little while she warmed up to me ^_^




Because i know some of you, i must add this disclaimer: NO! You know exactly what i mean by that too

Perfect Proposal

I stumbled across this video some years ago and just fell even deeper in love with Wayne Wonder. (Yes, Wayne Wonder is one of my many musical beaus. I'm freaking insatiable lol.)


The song always brings back some serious memories. I literally can't hear the song without singing along and swaying to the riddim. aaaahhh. Anywho, here's the original version as well (from No Holding Back, 2003).

In Case You Missed It


Graduation went down over the weekend. Now i'm inspired to get a doctorate so i can take part in the hooding ceremony...it looked so cool and i had never seen it before. Somehow i need to figure out how to get an honorary doctorate because i'm not evenly remotely interested in having to do the schoolwork required to get a "real"one lol. Anywho, the day started off rather rocky. People running on CP-time. I literally had to a pull a tuck-and-roll out of the car in the middle of the street and dress myself as i powerwalked to the graduates entrance in the arena. But i made it there with plenty of time to spare. I wasn't one of the stragglers that came strolling in halfway through the ceremony like i did when i graduated from undergrad. Of course, now that its all said and done, the question on everyone's lips is "so what are you going to do now" with a few choruses of "do you have a job lined up" and "are you going to get your doctorate". Sigh, talk about knocking the wind out of someone's sails. The answer to all of the above is nothing/no lol. I think there should be a law that states that when someone graduates you should only be allowed to say congratulations (or offer them a job/scholarship/handout/etc). If something miraculous were happening in my life post-college, i'd let you know, trust me.

Anywho, how are you guys doing? Have a good weekend? Anything new and exciting happening in your life?

Oh before i go, someone please explain this to me:

And to think i actually sat and watched the whole thing lol.

I'm So Slow Sometimes

I swear, i'm slow as hell sometimes. Like i really don't know whats wrong with my brain. So here's the short tale. I'm sitting here watching Poetic Justice...a movie that i've seen over a million times, tell me why i just now got the joke here:



Like seriously, how has this joke managed to go over my head for all these years??? Of course when i was little it went over my head because who knew what the hell a "punany" was at age 6? (Shame on you if you did, ya nasty!)

But even after i got older and ate the apple and my eyes were opened...i just thought the joke was that homegirl had really bad breath akin to that of someone's sweaty funky box lol.

So as i'm sitting here at 3am on this lovely thursday morning and im watching and then boom it hit me lol. Goodness. Well this is why i like watching old movies over and over (especially ones from when i was a kid and too young to understand)...you always find something you didn't catch before.

Sidenote: i'm mad Janet Jackson was so stank to Tupac when they were filming the movie. He is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine and i would smash that to pieces. Eff what ya heard.

Magic Tricks

A 21-year-old man was found shot in the head while handcuffed in the back of a patrol car Saturday night. Now police have launched an investigation to determine what happened.
Chavis Carter was a passenger in a pickup truck that was stopped by police in Jonesboro, Ark., Saturday night, according to KAIT, an ABC-affiliated television station. An officer reportedly found some marijuana, and ran Carter's information. He was wanted on a warrant out of Mississippi, so officers placed him in a patrol car.
"As protocol, he was handcuffed behind his back, double-locked and searched," said Jonesboro Police Department Sgt. Lyle Waterworth in an interview with WREG-TV.
Just minutes later, police said they heard a thumping noise, turned around and found Carter shot in the head.
Waterworth said he thinks Carter pulled out a hidden gun and shot himself. “Any given officer has missed something on a search, you know, be it drugs, be it knives, be it razor blades," he said. "This instance, it happened to be a gun."
His mother, Teresa Carter, disagrees. "I think they killed him," she said. "My son wasn't suicidal."
Carter said she was also told her son was shot in the right temple, although he was left-handed. "I mean, I just want to know what really happened," she told WREG-TV. "That's all I want to know."
The two officers who were present when Carter was found shot were placed on administrative leave.


Ah ha, he shot...himself...while he was handcuffed...after being searched...riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, we believe you!

It Breaks My Heart

The thing about gun laws

In the light of the craziness in Colorado, of course lots of people are up in arms about gun laws and why they aren't as strict (or why they are overly strict). Whenever the conversation about gun laws in this country come up i always like to look to Chicago, but we'll get to that in a moment.

The thing about gun laws is this, no matter how strict or how loose they are, they don't actually protect anyone. If any old body is legally allowed to carry a gun, you get situations like the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman fiasco.
Sidenote: have you guys been keeping up with the story? Did ya'll hear that fool get on national tv and say that he did nothing wrong, there is nothing he'd do differently in retrospect, that he doesn't regret following Trayvon or getting out of his car to pursue him that night and (and this is the kicker) that it was "God's will" and who is he to question it. SMMFH.
 I suppose you have the piece of mind that you're "protected" because you have a weapon in case of an emergency but in order for that to be the case, 1- you kinda need to know that danger is around ahead of time so you can get the drop on whomever is attacking you; 2- you can't get panicky in a hostile situation. For instance with the situation in Colorado, that dude threw tear gas in an already dark and crowded theater. Can you imagine the additional freaking chaos that would ensue if EVERYONE in that theater had a gun and decided to use it? I can assure you there'd be a hell of a lot more casualties and injuries. Not to mention with all that commotion, if the police had to make the decision to gun someone down, everyone shooting just made the list of likely suspects.

Now say we do the reverse and say no one can have a gun. Well that could work, most honest well to do citizens would obey the law. There is just one problem though... most people who use guns to commit felonies probably aren't concerned with what the law says. And this is really where I reference the activities of the folks over in Chicago and just to set the mood i give you this quote: "In the hood, summertime is the killin season. Its hot out this bitch, that's a good enough reason." -
June 2012: 8 killed, 43 wounded over the weekend
October 2011: 3 killed, 17 injured overnight
March 2011: 1 killed, at least 19 shot over a warm weekend

Yeah, Chicago is pretty much the poster child of why gun bans do not work. Not to mention that buying a gun (legally or illegally) is easy as hell. Plus the argument that with gun bans in place, everyone knows (well assumes) that you don't have a gun...increasing the likelihood that those who are up to no good are going to increase their nogoodnik behavior because there are few repercussions. *kanye shrug*

The whole gun control thing is a no-win situation from where i'm sitting but if you have suggestions. thoughts or opinions, i'm sure there are tons of people eager to hear 'em!


Just for kicks lol

This wasn't how i planned to break my silence but yeah...there it is. Going back to lurking for a lil while, but i'll be back with proper gist eventually.

Mr Ideal Nigeria 2012

Where have i been that i did not know about this parade of sexiness?!? Good Lawd. Some of them could get the business with absolutely no question (Mr. Abuja...Mr Akwa Ibom...i'm looking at YOU)! Then there were a couple of maybe's and some no's lol.

My Top 10 in no particular order (some of them are hell yeses and some of them are maybes):
Mr Abuja *drools*
Mr Akwa Ibom...with and without hair *continues to drool*
Mr Imo...sigh *fans self*

Mr Cross River...*bites knuckle*

Mr Oyo...again, i have a friend that looks something like him lol

Mr Osun (my #10 for those who were counting lol) was the winner. I don't know why. Clearly, the winner should have been Mr Abuja! Oh Well.

To see all the contestants and the rest of the pictures, visit the Mr Ideal Nigeria website or Facebook


Sidenote: I just found Mr Abuja's twitter account and Good Googa-Mooga. There are NO WORDS to describe the horribly disgusting thoughts that came to mind. Chineke mei!!! Sir, i would drink your freaking bath water! Why is he so damn fine?!? AAAAARRRRGGGHHHH.

Okay, i'm done.

And we're back

Hello-Hello beautiful people of the blogging world. Its the start of another week in this rapidly moving year of 2012.

pretty, yeah? 
So after almost 3 months of not doing a damn thing to my hair, i finally bit the bullet (on a whim too i might add) and went to the salon and got a relaxer. It was a Dominican salon and that lady doing my hair (who spoke MINIMAL english) was not happy that i had "negro" hair instead of spanish waves...IDK what she thought was gonna be going on in my roots when she saw my black ass walk in with my big bright African Students' Association t-shirt.

Anywho, at least my hair is getting better. A lil longer, a lil healthier. Still got a long way to go but its a work in progress.
Back in March

Now















Moving along, This part may be of particular interest to the likes of Toin, HoneyDame, Ginger and Myne lol. But, the passive aggressive flirt is back. lol. If you recall, i discussed 2 of them here. Well Flirt #2...nothin came of that. We're just hi-and-bye friends. I think he has a girlfriend too. They look cure together so i hope that's his girlfriend. But Flirt #1...has been on some next level shiggidy lately. Since i hadn't seen him in a while i shot him a "hey, how's life, miss your face" message. He told me he was out of town for a while and followed that with a number of slightly suggestive texts. Just suggestive enough for me to raise an eyebrow, but so slight that again, i had to check myself and make sure i was not reading too much into it. Anywho, some days pass and he randomly hit me up which was funny because i had literally just left his area (though i wasnt with him and im sure he didn't know i was around). So again, he hits me with these suggestive texts...but um these were FAR more suggestive than the earlier ones. Like whoa...on some Fifty Shades of Grey type ish. Ok...not that suggestive lol, but pretty damn close. *Sigh* Nonsense.

Last thing...me and the parental units and the younger sibling went out to dinner the other day. The following conversation occured when my mommy went to leave the waitress a tip:

Me: Why are you leaving all those singles? You could be using that at the strip club...
Mom: I don't go to the strip club
Me: You should *swinging arm in the air like i just don't care*
Mom: Why would i do that when i have my own private stripper right here *looks lovingly at my dad*
Me: *embarrassingly loud* AAAAARRRRGH, don't ever in your life!!!!! *turns up face in disgust*
Mom: Well next time you'll stay outta my business!
Brother: *laughing uncontrollably*
Dad: Jennifer, I don't know who or what she's talking about.
Me: See, thank you. At least someone is trying to make the situation better. Nobody wants to know about that *walks off towards the car in a pretend huff*

Have a blessed week everyone.

Round Two

So round 2 of this summer class is over. After the midterm we took yesterday a bunch of us went out for drinks to celebrate making it to the halfway mark of the class. Who gets drunk at 3pm on a sunday? We do, we do! lol. Well, not me. I just had a white sangria (which was freaking delicious by the way) and a really big cup of water.

My baby brother got his license AND took his SATs this past week. Where is the time going?

This whole zombie apocalypse shit is really starting to get to me. How many more stories of cannibalism do we need to hear about?!? How i really know its getting to me? On my way home from class on friday night i was stopped at a light coming off the highway and there was a beggar on the corner. The first thought that came to mind wasn't "poor guy" or "oh please" or whatever. It was to lock my door and think to myself "gah damn zombies ain't gonna trick me into rolling down my window so they can eat my brains!" Stay away from those bath salts!


The fact that my exam is in a few short weeks is becoming too real. Everyone keeps saying "you can do it" "you'll be fine" and all that other jazz. But i don't believe them lol. And hearing it actually just freaks me out even more. I've had at least 3 full on panic/anxiety attacks and bouts of depression in the past week and a half. It got to a point where literally for two days i was a freaking zombie (no pun intended). I didn't read anything, didn't study anything, didn't get out of my bed...nada. SMH *wooo-saaaaah* Sidenote: Thanks Ebi for letting me rant and carry on that day (whenever it was because i honestly don't remember anymore lol) about how much life sucks lol. It may not have seemed like it at the time but i felt sooooooo much better after we talked. #Homies4Life


Probably most hurtful is that Baby Sophia didn't make it. I personally have never dealt with the loss of a child that young and it just kinda hit me hard. So i can't even imagine what my soror is going through...especially with that being her first child. :( But all i can do is continue to pray that she and her family eventually find comfort somehow.

My condolences to the families of the lives lost on the Dana Airline flight that crashed in Lagos yesterday as well as the families of the 10 people that died in the Allied Air crash in Accra. The cargo plane, flying from Lagos to Accra, overshot the runway when attempting to land and hit a bus, killing all the passengers on board. The passengers on the flight are currently being treated for injuries but suffered no fatalities.

Forgive and Forget...or Move the hell on?? [REPOST]

Originally posted February 24 2011

I just happened to stumble upon this blog [blog has since been deleted] about one naija woman whose husband cheated on her. I guess she took to blogging to let off some steam. It was actually a very interesting read. While i have been cheated on in the past (once, maybe twice- first time was never substantiated and the second time resulted in the relationship being terminated post haste), that was just a regular relationship, not in a marriage (not that it doesn't hurt, i just imagine it hurts more after vows have been taken).

I've always had this philosophy that if you can't forgive and forget, then you should just end the relationship and move on. To some that seems very harsh and very hasty- cowardly even, but hear me out. If your partner cheats on you, you are going to lose trust in them. Once that trust is lost, you will become a freakin maniac. Checkin their phone, checkin their facebook, wondering if every time he runs to the store he's really out gettin a quickie with some next chick (can you tell i've been here before?!? lol). Even if he never cheats on you again or even gives any hints that he's thinking of doing so, you'll never be able to get the thought out of your head. (Well thats how i imagine it would be for me at least)

In short it will be pure hell, and not just for you. Do you think your mate is going to want to have to deal with this crap day in and day out (granted, they wouldn't have to deal with it had they kept it in their pants from the get go, but i digress) after you've supposedly forgiven them? No one wants to hear the same argument over and over again if its supposed to be resolved. If you can't forgive them, you're probably never going to let up. And even if you don't constantly bring it up, if you haven't forgiven them its bound to come up again at some point.

So i say pick up and move on. But after reading that blog, I can also see how much more complicated it can be. I know for myself that I am not a very forgiving person. And even if I pretend im not phased, its still always going to be in the back of my mind. That shit aint healthy at all, and I dont think that I nor the "transgressor" deserves to have to go through such hell. Hence, my thinking you should move on. Real talk: more power to those people who are able to forgive their partner's indiscretions. I don't think I have it in me. Hopefully i won't ever have to find out

[REPOST] what is love?!?

ORIGINALLY POSTED MARCH 24, 2011





What is love?

What is the difference between love and like? love and infatuation? (I know the difference between love and lust so i won't bother with that question) How can you tell the difference?

How do you know when you've found "The One"? How can you tell he/she is Mr/Ms Right instead of Mr/Ms Right Now?

When do you know its right to get married? What's the difference between being married and being in a serious, committed relationship (other than the legal/religious recognition)?

What is love?!?

ETA: Happy new month folks. 5 months down, 7 months to go in 2012!

Lessons from Baby Boy



Watched the clip? Ok good, now lets discuss...

I gotta say, i've always questioned the validity of that statement. "I lie to you cuz i care about your feelings" Hmmmm. Do any of you agree with the statement? Why or why not?

Round One

Round one of my weekend class is done and I can somewhat see light at the end of the tunnel.

I gotta say i feel so weird being in a classroom again, and with a different cohort than im used to...kinda. All of spring semester i had no actual lectures. So the last time i saw most of the people in this class was in December (save for the 2 that worked with me). Not to mention that an entire cohort (the co-hort i started with no less) has graduated, leaving only me and my homegirl behind. But this is our semester! By God's grace we shall not fail. We will survive Retention, we will pass our comprehensive exam with flying colors and we will walk proudly across that stage in August in our Master's regalia. Amen


Meanwhile, in the land of funny conversations with my parents. In a fit of frustration, i told my parents that i was chucking the deuces at graduate school and that i was going to be a pole dancer. What was my mother's response: Ok, well as long as you stay on the pole and out of the "back room" go for it! (o_0) Forreal Mom??? So i turned to my dad and said, you co-sign this? All he did was shrug his shoulders and went back to what he was doing. SMH. So i've let them know henceforth that any failures i experience is their fault for encouraging me to buss it wide open for a goon and that should i actually decide to take them up on this offer, they have no one to blame but themselves.


In other news, for those of you that of the praying variety, i ask that you send prayers and good vibes to one of my sorors who experienced serious complications in the birth of her baby girl last week. Mommy is ok but Baby Sophie is still in the hospital. Gracias in advance.

C'mon Man, Really?!?

A paedophile teacher who repeatedly raped a pupil under the pretence of giving her "extra science tuition" has been told he will be jailed for "a very long time".
Croydon Crown Court heard Ogunsola subjected the girl to three years of terror, telling her to wear skirts with no underwear so it was easier to have sex with her.
keith ogunsolaProsecutor Hanna Llewellyn-Waters told how the girl was intimidated into thinking no-one would believe her story against a teacher. When the pupil told Nigerian-born Ogunsola she wanted a boyfriend he "ripped off her clothes and raped her again".
But it is not the first time Ogunsola has been in court for sexually harrassing a student. In 2008, he grabbed a 14-year-old pupil and stuck his tongue in her mouth while they were in his school office.


He also asked girls in his chemistry class whether they had performed oral sex.
The court heard he had already been warned by the school's headteacher about his conduct with female students before the assaults took place. Ogunsola was cleared of two sexual assaults at that school in 2000 and another sexual assault at a different school in 2006.
Despite this, he was spared jail because of his "weak heart".
Ogunsola was told by the presiding judge: "You are going to prison for a very long time."

What the actual fuck?!? This doesn't even make any sense. So not only did this child have to endure this disgusting man, but there were others before and after her? At more than one school? And the school KNEW about it? At what point were they planning to (at least) fire this dude? When he freaking killed someone? Even if there is doubt, you need to at least put him on some sort of leave til the situation can be sorted out rather than let him continue to have easy access to young girls. SMDH. And add insult to injury, he hasn't been jailed because of a "weak heart"??? His heart wasn't too weak to rape/molest lil girls. Nasty Mofo.

Scratchin Me Up

I've been a horrible Trey Songz fan. Anticipation II mixtape has been out for how long and i'm just now getting around to listening to some of the songs?!? Especially since the original Anticipation mixtape is just so....*wooo-saaaaaah* Shame on me. But since i have taken the opportunity to let his sweet words soothe my ears, i figured i'd share my two faves at the moment:

Scratchin Me Up (Anticipation)


Still Scratchin Me Up (Anticipation II)


Yes Trey, i WILL take your pain if you take mine *bites lip, fans self, sashays away*

Encouraging Bad Behavior

Good day good people!

I had originally planned to write about the whole being a prude thing. I actually have the post written and was all ready to submit but there were some things in there...lets just say that the post spiraled a little out of control and started incorporating all sorts of thoughts i had from the wahala of yesterday. I took to twitter with my wariness about throwing caution (and possibly a blog friendship or 2) to the wind and posting it anyway. HoneyDame and my friend ChiChi said i should do it lol. LDP (whom i didn't even say proper good morning to...lo siento por eso) reminded me to be mindful of my words. So all the craziness will makes its way to the diary and the parts that made sense in the post will see the light of day eventually...or maybe not. Who knows. And if i feel like i need to have words with those of you whose souls would surely have been crushed had i actually hit the submit button, i will. Or maybe i won't. Again, who knows.

But for now i just want to shake my head *horizontally of course* at HoneyDame and ChiChi for trying to encourage my bad behavior lol.

Moving along. I've been in a very bleh mood for the past like 2 days. Almost every interaction i've had with other people has involved some level of drama/crazyness/make me wanna put my foot in their ass-ness. I don't know what it is. I think im stressed out. Too much is going on over here. But i will continue to put on a happy face and push through. What else can one do, right?

Oh Me, Oh My!

Hello everyone! I hope your monday is off to a wonderful start. The reason i am is here to make an announcement. It is with great pride and happy nether regions that i announce that sexy D'angelo is back! 
June 2012 issue of GQ magazine
Considering his brief, unfortunate stint with complete unattractiveness (which should be against the damn law, btw) i am happy to see him looking sexy again. I mean honestly, he was decent looking back in the days of Me and Those Dreamin Eyes of Mine, Brown Sugar (it was years before i realized the song was about drugs and not sex lol) and Lady, but he set the whole damn block on fire with the Voodoo album and everyone's favorite: Untitled...



So you can imagine a sistah's disappointment when he went from the toe-curling, is it hot in here or is it just me, Lord please forgive these lustful thoughts inducing buffet of sexual chocolate you see above to:
this...

So yes, now that he's sexy again, i'm a happy camper! :)


In other unrelated oh me, oh my news... Last night i was reading a random blog and i saw a comment by a young lady i know very well in real life...and ah man, it totally ruined my night. LOL. Over there talking about possible 3-somes, swallowing babies, her lack of a gag reflex, and other creative ways that she slobs the knob. I read it and literally covered my eyes and shouted Oh Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! *Yes it was that many o's...i counted* I had to get up and walk away from my computer. Ugh. I mean yeah, we all grown and i ain't throwing salt in anybody's game. Get it how you live boo. But ugh...there is something just so...NO... about talking about your sexual proclivities with the whole damn world. She didn't use her real name, she used a pseudonym (one that those of us that know her, know) BUT that was her real damn face staring back at me next to the comment. 

IDK man!

Doing Good Deeds

This is my good deed for the weekend: Answer CherryWine's 11s Tag

The Questions

1.What is the one thing that frightens you the most? Losing the people that matter the most to me...
2.What song would you describe as your ‘theme song’ ie a song that best describes you or how you feel about yourself or certain issues? Get Along With You by Kelis
3.Kim Kardashian, the entire Jersey shore cast ( if they were formed into one body with a medusa head of all the cast members) and Nene Leakes; if you had one bullet, who would you shoot? I'd probably shoot myself in that scenario lol
4.What was the last most outrageous purchase you made? My college education...i'll be paying that off for the rest of forever
5.Is it best to have loved and lost or is it best to not love at all giving the possibility of heart break? Give reasons. (P:S: No BS sappy and generic answers too) I'd rather have never loved at all than deal with that bitch called heartbreak! At least then i don't know what i'm missing or the ridiculous amount of pain that comes when you lose it.
6.Tattoos or piercings. Which do you prefer and why? (‘neither’ is not an answer) Piercing i guess because they're pretty much guaranteed to stay the same whereas a tattoo will change as your body changes. (I have neither in real life- not even my ears)
7.Who do you love the most, your brother or your boyfriend? (If married, replace with husband) Give reasons I don't have a boyfriend so by default i have to say my brother lol. But i would say that the love i have for my brother is not the same and thus can't be compared to the love i'd have for my bf/spouse.
8.Is revenge ever justified? Give reasons Depends on who is trying to justify it. I'm sure if Billy raped Susie and the Susies brother Jimmy killed Billy, Susie's people might see it as justified but Billy's people wouldn't.
9.Is religion an important consideration in a relationship? Give reasons Of course. But whats important about it is not whether or not its present, but if the two people are on the same page about it.
10.If you were president for a day, what is the first thing you would do? Forgive all student loan debts that were accrued before 2009
11. What is your first memory of being aware of/attracted to someone of the opposite sex? When i was about 6 or so, there was this cuuuuuuuute older boy at the after-school center i used to go to. Henry Hall (or something like that) was his name. #Dreamy

The people i tagged in my first round of this 11 jazz that i'm still waiting on (please feel free to go throw rocks at them):
Single Nigerian
Ginger
HoneyDame
Ade
Naija Rookie

Randomnista

Hello everyone. Its the weekend once again. Lets kick it off with some random thoughts:

Some of those lil hooligans that have been breaking into houses in my neighborhood got arrested the other day, not that it really matters because in a minute they'll be back out and back at it once again. All i can say is this is one makeshift neighborhood watch in Sanford that's actually doing what you're supposed to do. See something crazy- call the damn police and FOLLOW THEIR INSTRUCTIONS!

And since we're on the topic of Trayvon Martin- i am so over this nonsense. I honestly don't even understand why there's a trial. There's nothing anyone can tell me that's ever going to change the fact that had George Zimmerman remained in his car that night like the police told him to, he wouldn't have killed anyone. How you can claim self defense in a fight you started (not to mention bringing a gun to a skittles and iced tea fight to begin with) is beyond me.

Every once in a blue moon i watch Mary Mary's reality show. I'm lyin a lil, this is only the 2nd episode i've ever seen. But um... HOT MESS DOT COM! I remember one of them finding out she was pregnant and then saying..."but i didn't want no more kids." Hmmm. You DO know where babies come from right??? #OkThen

I loooooooooooooooooove the Golden Girls. I can recite pretty much every single episode from start to finish. I'm gonna be so sad when Betty White passes on.


My brother just text me and asked me what kind of chocolate i want. Sometimes he's kinda awesome (even though im sure its my mommy who's really getting me the candy that i so desire lol)

Conversation with my mommy last night:
Mom: You should make dinner for us tonight
Me: Me, make dinner? You wanna live don't you?!?
Mom: Well what have you been doin all these years that you've not lived with us? It doesn't look like you've missed any meals so you've obviously been cooking something.
Me: Wait a minute, did you just make a fat joke???
Mom: I did not all i said was...
Me: all you said was that i'm fat mommy, i heard you!
Mom: urgh, whatever lil black girl
And thats how i got out of cooking dinner ^_^

What a friend we have in Jesus/All of our sins and griefs he'll bare/What a privilege to carry/Everything to God in prayer! (Im watching Mary Mary's show right now and the song came on...couldn't help singing along)




Be sure and say something nice to someone this weekend. Never know who's day it'll make. And to the person that's had an abundance of random nice things to say to me this past week or so (whether u meant it or not) - Thank You :)

Have a great weekend loveys!

For Real Though?!?

A Zimbabwean politician has sparked outrage by suggesting the spread of HIV can be curbed if women shave their heads, stop bathing and deliberately make themselves look unattractive.
Morgan Femai, an MDC-T senator for Chikomo said the measures were required because men were finding it difficult to resist well-dressed, attractive women.
He added: “They should also not bathe because that is what has caused all these problems.”
Senator Femai also appeared to suggest female circumcision would help stop the spread of disease.
He told the workshop, which was organised in conjunction with the National Aids Council: “Women have got more moisture in their organs as compared to men so there is need to research on how to deal with that moisture because it is conducive for bacteria breeding. There should be a way to suck out that moisture.”
According to Unicef figures from 2009, more than 14 per cent of the adult population in Zimbabwe have HIV/Aids.
Deborah Jack, chief executive of NAT (National AIDS Trust) told Huffington Post UK: "These suggestions of how to fight the spread of HIV are totally misleading and potentially really damaging.
"They also unfortunately shift focus away from the proven ways to prevent HIV transmission - being aware of the facts of how HIV is passed on, using a condom during sex and ensuring you are tested for HIV when you've put yourself at risk."
You can find out all you need to know about HIV by visiting HIVaware.
According to All Africa, another MDC-T Senator, Sithembile Mlotshwa (Matobo), recently suggested men be injected with drugs that reduce their libidos. She also called for prisoners to be given sex toys to satisfy their sexual desires.

You have got to be fucking kidding me. I have soooooooo many not nice things to say right now but i will just keep them to myself. SMH
