Bible Study

Sunday night phone conversation:

Him: what are you doing?
Me: straightening up my apartment a little.
Him: You know you not supposed to be doing that right?!?
Me: What? Why not?
Him: Its in the bible some place. I don't know what it says exactly but i know you ain't supposed to do that.
Me: *gives phone the most epic of straight faces* You mean that i'm supposed to keep the Sabbath holy?
Him: I dunno what they call or whatever, i just know its in there.
Me: I just freaking told you tho.
Him: Well whatever it is, i know you not supposed to be doing that on Sunday.
Me: You mean to tell me, that you got the nerve to say that i need to come to your church and come with you to Bible study and you don't even know what the Sabbath is or where in the Bible it tells you to keep it holy?!? You good bruh!

Being a Bad Girl On The Clock

Since Toin and ThisLagosGirl are doing amebor tinz, i guess i can divulge a lil bit.

ThisLagosGirl asked first, so i'll start with how to go on a date while at work.

It all started one lovely Tuesday morning. I had been having issue with my computer for the past few days so i really was in no rush to check it (and be disappointed again). Instead i did some work by hand. When i finally did check, i had an email asking for my assistance with something in a different office. The email was from the night before. And by now i had already been at work for like 2 hours lol. So i high-tailed it across campus only to find out that my services were not required at the moment. So i told them i would head back to my office and that they should call me if they need me to come back up. Instead of going straight back to my own desk, i decided to visit another colleague of mine who works down the hall from there. We got to talking and after chatting for a brief moment the following ensues:
Me: Well, i told them to call me if they need my help so i guess i better head back to my office...
Him: Its almost noon, they are probably gonna need you soon anyway. Doesn't make sense for you to go all the way back down to your office. You might as well stay here.
Me: How am i gonna know if she needs me though? I didn't forward my phone before i left.
Him: Don't worry about it, i gotta run over there right quick anyway. I'll tell them you're in here helping me with something.
Me: *exceptionally long pause* oooookay
A few minutes pass...
Him: ok, i told them to call here if they need you.
Me: What are you working on?
Him: A press release. But you can go on ahead and shut the door and hit the lights and pull a chair up over here...
Me: *complete look of bewilderment*
He pulls out a handful of DVDs and says-
Him: which one of these movies do you wanna watch?
For the record, i did help him with the press release so at the end of the day can't nobody say i wasn't "working" lol. But yeah, that- in a nutshell- is how you go on a date at work. Attempt at your own risk. I cannot guarantee that your boss will approve, that your co-worker won't turn out to be lecherous (mine was a perfect gentleman unfortunately), or that you won't get caught. I personally think i raised a few eyebrows when i finally left dude's office lol.


I'll get to the messiness/bad girl tinz soon Toin ;)

I'm just talkin

I heard my boss cuss for the first time yesterday. That was kinda awesome lol.

That song The Worst by Jhene Aiko...man, i LOVE the lyrics. But the song is garbage. How is that even possible? I've never really liked Jhene anyway. That might have something to do with it lol. She killed that last verse tho.

What the hell is wrong with Kanye West? The Bound 2 crap is CRAP. I made it about 1 minute and half into the video before i gave up. This is what happens when you play with those Kardashian chicks.

Theres no way you can sing Love On Top without doing a full out performance. And i don't even like Beyonce. But when that comes on you'd think someone just proposed to me lol. Same goes for No One Gonna Love You by Jennifer Hudson.

That co-worker of mine who is playin this No Shave November nonsense...he's looking mighty fine with that damn beard. *covers face* According to him i'm the only one who likes it tho. And he has the most beautiful deep blue eyes i think i've ever seen. The things you notice when somebody starts lookin good, smh.

It is bad that i'm legitimately upset when i go to a meeting at 11am and don't get fed? Like its lunch time almost. Why can't i get a plate.

Someone should explain how i managed to go on a date AT WORK. LOL. I swear i love my job. There's always so much shenanigans going on here.

I've been messy as hell lately. I won't get into details but...yeah. Bad bad bad Lady Ngo!

I think i have a superpower

Every time i say someone needs to get married, someone i know ends up getting engaged...like that same day.

So if you are waiting for your boo to go to Jared so your Kiss can begin with Kay, holla at me. I can hook you up.

For a small fee.

This is what happens when you give people choices

Ella: What do you want for Christmas?
El: A galaxy tab or PS4
Ella: Nigga Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!? (o_O)
El: you asked, i told you
Ella (to herself): this mofo crazy!
Ella (out loud): I guess we'll be hitting those black friday sales hard!

I had a dream

...a vision of sorts.

I was spending a holiday with one bobo and his family. And in the middle of dinner, he dropped to one knee and proposed. Like seriously bruh? You're proposing to me? Right now? In front of all your people? When 5 minutes ago you weren't even sure you wanted to be my boyfriend?

And i just sat there. like a deer in headlights. What in the world was I supposed to do?


If i say nigga are you crazy, i'm gonna look...heartless. If i don't say anything, i'm gonna look heartless. If i run for the damn hills and never look back, i'm gonna look heartless.

So i said yes.

And this is how i came to the conclusion that if ever someone decides to surprisingly pop the question, i'd probably say yes then spend a significant amount of private time trying to figure out how the hell to get out of it.

The upside to a three-day (or any extended) weekend...is you get all them days off.

The downside to a three-day weekend is trying to get yourself back in the swing of things when you do have to go back to work.

I'm fighting a losing battle today. And to make matters even worse, starting to day off with freakin drama before 7am. Never cool.

And its 1pm, and I haven't even gone for lunch yet. I think i'm going to take my lunch break at 3:30 and just go home early.

I'm so over it today lol.

You asked, I answered 2.0

Hola folks. I actually had a crazy hectic weekend, which involved working on saturday, houseguests, and drama. But since you all were so kind as to indulge me with the questions, its only right I provide the answers ;)

148. What’s your favourite quote?  i don't think i have one anymore lol
135. Dumbest lie you ever told? Um, when i was about 12, we all went through this phase of lying about being "experienced". Please don't even ask me why because no one was even thinking about attempting to do anything back then. Crazy youthful shenanigans.

128. Would you change your name? There was this one time in kindergarten when me and this other little girl switched names for like a week because i thought Jenna was infinitely better sounding than Jennifer. but other than that- nope. I suppose eventually my last name will change but that's about it.

For African Fashion:

6. What kind of people are you attracted to? all kinds honestly, i have so many different types of friends, fam, love interests, etc. Im like a jack of all "types" and master of none lol.
20. Do you like your neighbors? Nope, especially not the ones above me lol. They are just as rude and inconsiderate as they wanna be.
29. Have any of your ex’s told you they regret breaking up? Most everyone i have had some type of romantic entanglement has regrets about ending things or the way things ended.

For Okeoghene:
17. Do you think there is life on other planets? I think its possible. I mean we are only one planet in one galaxy in one universe.

64.Tell us the story of your first kiss? I don't remember all the details but it was with an older boy named Henry at the after-school program i used to go to when i was a little kid. I think he was just getting close to me because he liked my older sister but there it is lol.

No Shave November

On friday, one of my co-workers came in looking a little...scruffy. I asked what was up with his face. He said he hadn't shaved that morning because it's officially "No Shave November".

I told him, please don't do that!

But then i thought about it, and i said: you know what, if not shaving makes you happy then you go right ahead!

I saw him Sunday at church and his face was clean shaven lol.

I asked what happened. He said, he forgot not to shave.

Men.

PS. I wonder how men would feel if the women-folk participated in this no shave november nonsense.

PPS: this past sunday was also the first time i've ever worn pants (as in trousers, not pata lol) to church...in my entire life. Felt weird.

PPPS: I was on the radio on thursday. Celeb status. lol.
