Chatty, mischievous and evolving over with time. I am trying to make sense of everything around me and having loads of fun along the way! Oh, I want to be a better person along the way.

Break out the Champagne!

I have been away for quite some time. Missed you all like crazy. Interestingly my thoughts have been with Buttercup and Chari lately. Hope you guys are doing ok. My Google is misbehaving. I have been opening my blogger page but it comes on in Arabic. I tire. Even my search pages come out like that. Pretty frustrating since the bulk of my work these days seems to be writing up articles and making a comparative analysis of company issues in different jurisdictions.

On to other things- I had things to blog about last week. I had major pet peeves but they all seem to have disappeared.

My birthday is tomorrow. Bought a dress and went venue shopping on Sunday. I wanted a gorgeous atmosphere and amiable staff, where I can relax with my friends and be totally free, not one of those stuck up places. Finally found a nice restaurant with food I love. I am hosting a birthday dinner for 12 persons. Selecting the people I want to spend my evening with was an arduous task I tell you. I had these thoughts-Who would get mad if not invited, which friends would get along best with one another etc. I guess I should be thankful I don't have to do sitting arrangements. I would have screamed!

I wanted an all girls evening before but my male friend whom I accidentally jabo'd to made all sorts of noise so he kinda finagled an invite and I had to exclude some more girls to have an equal representation of the sexes.

Like a friend pointed out, the dinner will end late, getting home will be a chore so why not make it a more rounded 0cassion as the guys will act as the Calvary? I had to agree with that.

So people what have you all been up to? I will be round your pages soon. that will be my weekend gift to myself. Speaking of which, Lagos is agog with the Eyo festival plans slated for this Saturday. No Lagos Island waka for me on that day. A word of advice, I heard if you will be in that vicinity as a woman 'do not pack your hair up in a ponytail' to look like a 'suku'. I don't know why that is though.

I missed my blog I swear. Typing this up soothes my spirit in ways I can't describe. Even though I am not happy about the ton of paper I have to write as my report for the work I am currently working on.

I don't feel different even though this is the last day I will spend as a 24 year old! The past one year in itself has been fabulous. I cannot thank God enough for all that he has done for me.

Everytime my alarm sounds off in the name I go 'oh another day', the thought that immediately follows is, be glad you are alive and healthy. A lot of people would give anything to be where you are at the moment. So I get up and smile and set about the day's activities.

Sorry if this post is totally un-coordinated, its good to be back and I didnt think of this I am just going with the flow. Pardon the typos work has been crazy. I just took a mini break and it seems the break is stretching to a full one. In fact I will continue the work tommorrow. I shall blog to my heart's content for now.

New job Title!

When you have nothing to blog about, what do you do? Share a joke? That's exactly what I am doing.

Easter was really nice, rested like I had been slaving all these months. My cousin also got married during the break. Lovely wedding. Another opportunity for the clan to gather and make other plans while teasing each other about who is next. I am happy no one is stressing us out just yet.

The guys bringing their ladies and us wondering who will dare to be next.

This is to
Temite:- How can you go PRIVATE without inviting me? Not happy at all! :-(

Omotee added another year yesterday. Happy Birthday girl!

I think that's all with current events. Enjoy my joke. Of course its not really the Ministry of Labor in Nigeria.

The Ministry of Labor in Nigeria has introduced 'new titles to jobs' to remove inferiority complex, so that workers could be proud and comfortable with their professional Titles.

These are:

1. Garden Boy ---- Landscape Executive and Animal Nutritionist

2. House Maid ---- Domestic Operations Specialist

3. Typist ---- Printed Document Handler

4. Messenger ---- Regional Business Communications Conveyer

5. Window Cleaner ---- Transparent Wall Technician

6. Temporary Teacher ---- Associate Tutor

7. Tea Boy ---- Refreshments Overseer

8. Garbage Collector ---- Public Sanitation Technician

9. Watchman ---- Area Theft Prevention and Surveillance Officer

10. Thief ---- Wealth Redistribution Officer

11. Driver ---- Automobile Propulsion Pilot

12. Mechanic ---- Automobile Propulsion Specialist

Please be advised accordingly

Off my chest

I feel very unserious at the moment. In fact I am faffing around at work even though I have several files to go through and prepare but don't blame me, blame all the posts I have been reading all morning.

This post has been in my journal for quite some time. Months actually. I always carry on conversations with myself. I don't know why. When Smaragd said she was a thinkaholic, I commented that I was too. I talk to myself. I was going through my journal and I found this. It was further inspired by a book I read over the weekend. I have since moved on from this episode but I did wonder how the dynamics of the human mind works. One minute you are all upset and angry and the next you are fine. Anyhoos here it is....


IMH: He is cheating on me

IMM: Hmmn, you should have known. You never go to his place except he takes you there. You don't know what goes on when your back is turned. What about the time that girl came to his house and walked straight to the bedroom when you were reading thinking he was there when in fact he had gone out and you left the door open?
He is always on the phone or sending text messages.

IMH: But I worked so hard at loving him

IMM: You worked too hard at loving him for too little in return.

IMH: But he didn't love me

IMM: You are right, but that is his shortcoming not your failure.

IMH: But I tried so hard

IMM: It's not your fault he is a rotten sod. He probably liked you a lot but he didn't love you. He will try to get you back.

IMH: Do you think so?

IMM: Stupid girl, you shouldn't be hopeful, you should be horrified! You are better off without him. If he comes back begging and crawling and send him away with a resounding NO!

IMH: All my friends like him and my family too. I thought we might get married

IMM: Silly you. They are not in the relationship with you. It's good you found out now not when you are too far gone.

IMH: But all my friends are getting married. What do I say?

IMM: Think about yourself! A marriage is for ever. You should enjoy it not endure it. You have to deal with all his ish on a daily basis. NOT THEM. He makes you feel less than worthy. Why would you want that?
I think deep down you were never sure of his feelings for you and that's why you tried so hard. Gosh! It was like a full time job, taking breakfast to his office, anticipating his needs, matching his socks, you worked so hard at being a sexpot, a wifey and an amazing girlfriend.

IMH: What more could I have done?

IMM: You are trying to measure yourself against how much affection you could inspire in him.
You feel so low because you are judging yourself on how little he loved you.
You expected respect, affection and fidelity, none he gave. So stop beating yourself up. He doesn't deserve you and you are a wonderful girl.
It's not your fault he is an emotional imbecile.

IMH: I am so hurt and angry. I gave him everything.

IMM: You will get over this. He never makes love to you talkless of having an out of this world totally-driving-me-crazy-experience. It was always a wam-bam-thank-you-miss-I-am-tired kind of thing. Do you want to live with that? You were born to be made love to not ******. He is shallow and unworthy of your love.
He is always too busy to call or text you, yet he spends all his time with you texting and calling other people. If you really matter to him, time spent with you should be cherished not flittered away on an electronic gadget that's going nowhere.
He forgets everything you tell him. Your friends will get over how nice he is and in fact tell them to **** off! You are dating him not them. The loving halo he puts on for their show does not penetrate your soul. It wanes when they turn their backs so quit wondering what they will say you have done this time.
You are too loving to be constrained and maybe to him you are just a fling. You must not take this personally.

IMH: How can I not?

IMM: If he came tomorrow asking for forgiveness, would you take him back?

IMH: Silence

IMM: Would you?

IMH: Silence

IMM: Just answer the question

IMH: No, I don't think so

IMM: You see, it's nothing to do with you personally or the love or lack of it that he had for you. Ultimately you will see that you didn't love him that much to be with him for good. when you doubt someone's love for you that much, the harder you work trying to secure it and that's not healthy.
He is not worth your tears.
You might feel unsure of your next move or your heart might skip a beat whenever you see something that jogs your memory of him but in time it will slow down and return to normal.

Lastly it would be wrong to settle for anyone less than a man who absolutely adores you.

IMH: hmmm ok maybe you are right.

IMM: I am always right. You just never bother to consult me on these things.

And so it is.
Have a nice week everyone.
