Hey beautiful!

Hope you are doing good? Let me act like I have not been away for too long......okay I'm sorry I really am. Please don't give up on Missy Tee.....

Thanks for checking up.... you know yourselves. You guys are awesome!

So I met one particular person in September and honestly I cannot believe how amazing Nigerians could be at times.
Being me I regard him as a friend which he is obviously and nothing else. He started bugging me all in the name of wanting to be friends and some of my other friends came to me asking if he has been pestering me too because he has been on their necks too.
Anyway this person has been trying to over familiarise which sometimes is unhealthy yea unhealthy.
He was becoming too overbearing and I decided to 'block' him meaning give him the 'dude chill' gesture somehow somehow.

He confronted me one day and said 'I do know he is married and all that and he has a pretty wife' so  shouldn't think he is thinking otherwise or something. I looked at him and simply gave me the appropriate response and left his presence so he is now trying to reconcile somewhat because he literally jumped the gun......typical!!

Ladies and gentlemen, that was where he completely shocked me! First up, who thinks about that in 2012? Certainly NOT me! Again he is married, double reason for me not to think so.
My lovely friend has been avoiding him too so she literally prays and tells me to wish her luck so she doesn't run into him......

We are coursemates by the way! *double deep sigh*

Some people need to change their thinking!!

I shall be back again when 'skuwl' permits.

Take care guys and be safe!

Ps- I absolutely love(from Sunday best)  Jessica Reedy's album. You should check it out.
Something out of nothing - JR - makes you thankful.
Always be thankful even when you do not know what to be thankful for or you think there is nothing to be thankful for because He is always busy looking after you and taking care of you!!

Moving on- JR

Enjoy these ones and the others!

Catch you soon..

Wednesday 18 July 2012

Hey lovely!

I had flashbacks of secondary school flogging episodes and thought I’d share.....
Flogging in secondary school? It was just over the top. In JSS1 being secondary school newbies or better put “Freshers” (emphasis on the “ers” like Americans), JSS2 “seniors” were looking for school daughters and sons...............aaand I digress.....
Anyway, we (my classmates and I) had this English teacher who was less popular for his flogging skills (imagine people having flogging skills again- *sigh) let’s call him Mr Wicked or Wick! for short.
NB: I remember these scenarios in bits and pieces so it might not be completely accurate but it’s what I can remember that I put down.
Mr Wick! wanted us to learn how to spell “SINCERELY” by fire, force, rain, thunder, hailstorm and lightening- he even went as far as telling us to pronounce it like typical Yoruba people “Seeeen-se-wre-lee” so we could get the spelling. We were given an assignment the day before so majority spelt sincerely wrong- “Sincrely”, “Sincerly”, “Sincely” and so on and I think some people too did not submit their assignment so one of the two must have annoyed Mr Wick!.
Mr Wick! taught JSS1 classes in succession from A to C – luckily I was not in class A. Phew!. There was this other teacher who taught SS1-3 class English Language let’s call him Mr Flogger or Mr F for short; he was a pro at flogging students as in if they had an award for “floggers” he would win the award yearly. I think after gaining his degree, he went to the “School Of Flogging” at University of Nigeria (or wherever he finished from) to learn how to flog and he got the highest honour that is (Honoris Causa)Doctorate in Flogging as in he was good in a painful way. Anyway, Mr Wick asked Mr Flogger to “discipline” slash “instill” English Languwageee into his JSS1 fresher’s heads by using His Majesty Mr Cane on them.
Now I’m about to be dramatic and very descriptive so you are somewhat in for a ride (yells Seatbelts please!).

Right next to my class were three steps descending into the JSS1 block, no one could enter the block without someone in my class sighting the person. Another thing, my class had 2 doors like the others with one directly next to the stairs which was kind of a good thing for my class because students especially boarders could sneak into class through the back door whenever the teacher faced the board without him/her knowing but we never did or I do not remember ever sneaking into class because I was too busy trying to be in every teacher’s good book. Moving on, Mr Flogger skipped “happily” down the steps into Junior Class 1 Block heading to class A and once we all sighted him, we switched from “noise-making rambling on and on about nothing essential” mode to “panic” mode, we did not know if they were going to work through all three classes that afternoon, the tension in the air was so thick you could cut it with a strong cutlass forget scissors - it was that thick. We continued in our panic stricken state and to worsen the matter I think we had submitted our notes so there was no way to change anything even if we wanted to and even so I do not think anyone would have had Tippex for us to Tippex the spelling, even if we tippex’d our notes, the teachers were not blind-they would have definitely seen the whhitteee rrooughhh ssttrreeaaakkk of tippex across the wrongly spelt “sincerely”, even if we tore the page out they would have said that the assignment was not done so there was literally NOTHING that could be done even if we did anything they were still going to sniff out the rat so hey the whole block was going to dance to Mr Cane’s rhythm except those who got it right of course. It was a scary noon. Suddenly suddenly, suddenly, perhaps Mr Flogger got tired- we saw him walk back up the steps- exiting the block. Don’t be surprised if I say that my class heaved a HEAVY sigh of relief and the tension rate went from 35 000 000 000 to 500. Even with the tension rate of “500” - we were still panicking because we did not know whether Mr Flogger went to drink water, perhaps use the loo or rest his hand or change Mr Cane or get Mr Cane’s twin. We waited for a while and Mr Flogger did not return, we all reduced the tension rate to 10. After that who won’t know how to spell sincerely? Even if I am not sure of the spelling I say it in my mind as Seen- se-wre-ley.
Fast forward to SS1 and SS2- we were officially seniors, basking in the excitement of getting to wear skirts and not pinafores – I kinda started to love my pinafore in JSS3, just when we had to stop wearing it. We were going to be using “Higher Education” notebooks not “Exercise Books”. While we were still enjoying the added freedom of being seniors we came to the realisation that yes you guessed right Mr Flogger was our new English teacher. It was not a funny something we were shivering with panic. I personally was frightened during that Mr Flogger’s class.
Mr Flogger was teaching us phonetics in SS1, we had to write the phonetic symbols or whatever you wish to call it to words he dictated somewhat like dictation in primary school. Back then? It was like writing Cambridge exams mainly because he made you doubt yourself by saying “Are you sure?” so he said for every word you get wrong you get 10 strokes of Mr Cane. My class was eerily quiet because we weren’t expecting a “Phonetic Dictation” class work- we had not revised!
Hence we started- I at the time sat on the first row and first seat on the left in class and I think he loved starting from my corner when using Mr Cane. Yours sincerely got 7 (I’d never ever forget the number of questions I got wrong in that particular dictation because that is one class/moment I’ll never forget till His Kingdom Come) of the phonetic symbols wrong out of Heaven knows how many he gave us, it must have been over 15-20 words that he gave. Shake your head all you want.
You know when teachers say “swap your note with your classmate and mark each other’s”? That used to annoy me. Did you guys ever do that?
Anyway Mr Flogger after “correction time” looked at me as I was the first student on my row (who sent me to sit there ehn? Nobody told me in SS2 before I changed my the second row and first seat at least 5 people received their share of Mr Cane before Tee) and said:
Mr F: How many did you get wrong?
Me: (In my mind I was saying Tee better be honest before the man looks in your note. Bible says- The Truth shall set you free so don’t lie)..........Seven Sir!
Mr F: (Looks in my note) Seven? Seven times ten?
Me: Seventy sir!
Mr F: So you get seventy strokes of Mr Cane- gimme your hand!
Me: (Boldly stood up and stretched hand out – I knew deep down that I could not disappear like in the movies so I simply obeyed)
My thoughts were something like “Tee you have received this flogging today, there is no turning back. Just begin thinking of how you will get ice for your palm because it will really need it- you won’t be able to write or hold anything for a few hours with that hand so be wise and begin prepping for the “palm-treatment” ”. My thoughts at that point in time was all over the place, my heart was pounding.
Suddenly Mr F said;
Mr F: Make sure you study hard before next class bla bla bla. I won’t spare you next time (that applied to me and the rest of class)..... See you during the next class (exits class)
Me: squeezes eyes as a sign of HUGE relief and I probably said a silent prayer to big Jesus because he really proved his word about saying the truth. That was really true- I spoke the truth and I was set free from receiving SEVENTY strokes, Seventy?? AHH. Like Sisi Yemmie would say Pra-pra-pra-praise de Lord, Praaaiissee master Jesus.
Lesson Learnt- NEVER SIT ON THE FIRST EVER SEAT IN CLASS, TRY AND SIT ON THE THIRD OR FOURTH and always revise before class!
I did not let next lesson pass like that, I was game on ready for Mr F. He came to class that day and said if any of us got everything right he would give us N100- 100 bucks was a big deal then because it could get you loads for lunch then. I had the OK, bring it on! attitude, I was ready. The fact that I could escape seventy strokes of Mr Cane made me study hard- very extremely hard....... for ordinary class work that carried no percentage whatsoever but just to avoid Mr Cane.
So we started the class work and I kept getting the answers right- I redeemed myself that day, I turned a Phonetic-guru overnight. I was like ah you have just worsened your own situation today, that N100 must enter my wallet for “Break Money” today in addition to the one there already. After the dictation, he sat at back of the class we all submitted our notes to be marked by him. I was looking at him with evil side eye. When we got our notes back and I saw my score, I just rested my back and had this big grin- thinking about how I was going to have an extra spectacular lunch-break that day, probably sponsor one those juniors who never stop asking for sponsor. So he asked;
Mr F: Who got everything right?
Me: (raises hand proudly) Me...... Sir!
Mr F: (Mentions my last name which will be known as Tee here) Tee?! That’s good- well done.
Me: (thought “after threatening me with 70 strokes of Mr cane, I won’t now study hard? impossicannot) Thank you sir.
Look at me expecting the man to stretch his freshly removed from his pocket or wallet N100 clutched hand.........
Mr F: Okay class see you next week?
Me: (With shocked face, grumbling voice) See you sir!
I did not want to place a curse on him because I was excited that I got all the questions right.
The man just loved flogging and he was paid to teach but other teachers “rented” him for his skills.
In SS2 , he gave us this very loooooooooooooooooooooong list of words to learn over the long hols and said when we return he was going to ask us what they meant randomly. Till today I am glad to say that I remember the very first word on the board which was “Absurd”. I can never ever forget that word. We resumed school, fresh off the long hols- refreshed and happy to see those who we did not see during hols. The 1st or 2nd class back, he brought out his long list along with Mr Cane and started throwing words randomly- people like me who learnt them in the same order as it was given to us were in for a mini-shock. I remembered the meaning but forgot them immediately he pointed at me using Mr Cane;
Mr F: Tee! Stand up (pointed with Mr Cane in hand)
Tee: (Stood up)
Mr F: What is Congruent? (that’s not the real word he asked, just an example)
Me: Uhmm (squinting hard for the word to return to position)
Mr F: (Counting down) 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1
Me: Sighs
Mr F: Gimme your hand.
Me: (Stretches hand out) Smack! Smack!! (Received Mr Cane on the palm and sat back down gently)
As soon as I sat down, the answer returned to my head- that annoyed me so bad. The shock and fear made the answer scramble in my head but I did pull myself back together at some point- that was after Mr Cane painfully kissed the palm of my hand. Oh- he was merciful this time and gave us 2 for each word that we got wrong. After he left, my clique talked about the class for a bit and in no time, it was way behind us.
These are just a few scenarios I can picture in my head as I type this post but hey isn’t that part of what made secondary school fun? I can go on and on about how Mr Cane designed my hand but I shall leave that for laters......
Was Mr Cane ever used on you in high/secondary school?
Ps- I still have my “Higher Education” notes stacked somewhere covered in DUST!

UPDATED POST: Guess what?!

Monday 2 July 2012

Heeelloowww !

Howa yu?

Guess what? I know that is what the title says but guess though?

I saw the Olympic Torch so that makes me a feee hiiii peeee (VIP)- Haha!
I know its no big deal but at least  I saw the gold torch adored by millions.
Okay lemme start from the top.

On Friday  about a week ago now- I should have posted this last week, a colleague of mine handed me the Olympic Torch  route list I highlighted the places close to my abode that I could “possibly” go see it if I could really be bothered to go see it.

Anyways- on Monday 25th we had a few minutes off in the morning to go see it if we wanted. I was not fussed, keen or adamant as in whatever word that goes with “simply not bothered” on seeing the Torch because I felt it was just a Torch so yea!

Over the weekend, there were signs everywhere informing individuals about the Olympic Torch event bla bla- expect delays or find alternate routes- that kinda stuff so I just assumed that it was just going to be around(I know its gist but I gotta do some introduction so chill and read on! ;-) ) On the list though- it said it was going to go past a street not far from mine And Voila- it did!
We all reached for their phones there were sooooo many kiddies on the roadside waiting for the OT (tired of typing Olympic Torch now- although I just did *ptcheww). Then came initially the Police on their Motor Bikes raising the kiddies blood pressure adrenaline, the music bus and the first big bus went ahead, then came cyclists and then the OT!

We waited for a bit before the OT itself came by! It was so surreal that I did not have to go far to see it- it was right in front of my eyes.

-          The day before, Soeur and I were day-dreaming out loud on our way back from church saying  imagine the torch bearer being Funke Akindele that we'd yell Jenifer!, or  Banky W we would have yelled “Its Banky W” (in his voice) and then like a car screeching to a halt I said- can we stopping dreaming about this because they are only likely to carry the Torch in London or Coventry or somewhere like that.

Soeur made a quick friend on the OT bus- when the bus carrying the rest of the Torchbearers went by- this particular guy waved to her like she had known him since Kindergarten.

We all made videos but I’m only putting up one of them here. For your eyes only!

Copyright 2012- you need to write a comprehensive letter to me requesting permission to use the video, why you want to use the video, when you want to use the video, the exact time you want to use the video, the site you want to use the video on, the type of pen you are using to write the letter, the paper brand you are using, or the computer you are using.

Saturday 30 June 2012

..................................for not blogging like I said I will in June. I planned on posting an update before June 2012 went by but I cannot upload my post because I have been unable to send the videos which I NEED to include in the post to my blog which is pretty uncool but I will sort it out tomorrow by His grace. So technically  I have not broken my promise because this is a post but the proper post should be up in a bit.
I shall give you a hint of what the next post is about-
 It is:

Yes I saw the Olympic Torch live and direct so await the videos- I have three videos to show you- I sincerely hope they upload and work on my blog.

In a bit....

Good evening!

E Kale!

Eti Sen!
Sup sup?

Have I missed blogging? Well I do not even need to answer that- this post should answer!

I know I know I have been off the radar in fact, I have been far away from the radar until it located me on the new planet called Planet Busy!
Throughout the month of May I think it’s safe to say I was a conveyor belt- busy 24/7. I barely hung out at all in May- last May was a busy busy month for me. You want to know what I was doing? Gimme a call on 01-missytee and I’ll give you every tinny little detail. Don't wanna bore people with the uber long list.
How have you all been by the way?

To those who checked up and asked why my blog was so quiet- thanks a bunsheeeees! You all are the best!

I just finished reading Atilola’s book- Yep I started today and finished today. I started reading saying okay I should finish this by tomorrow but seriously I just could not get myself to close the page- it was fabulous I really like the Chief Goshe’s bit, My own enemy (I think there is a word missing there I can't recall atm but it should return), The Lagos Bus Conductor, The lady preacher- Fire and Brimstone preacher??, the street with numerous churches seriously lets just say I loved them all. I was putting off reading the book till I bought the hard copy but I could not resist.  I think I might be the first to actually write a review on Amazon- we’ll see. Oh and the bit Mrs PRESSURED? that says that people should not call me Mama *insert child’s name* I am Atilola even if I have 20 children.......... J’adore that bit- I agree 100%! Or is it this Parrot girl  you wanna talk about- okay I’ll stop analysing the book now. Click on the link on my blog on the right for more as in I mean buy the book and read it!
I shall read the book again!

I need to apologise publicly by the way to Atilola-  I did get your email but I haven’t been able to reply SORRY!!! but I have managed sort it out- I hope I am forgiven? :-) I’m not usually like that- I reply emails regularly it’s just this one time.

Atilola's Book!

Atilola's Book

Hey guys,

This is a book by Atilola (duh! the cover says it, I like analogy too much!!!). Please watch the trailer below, read the preview and I shall be giving a copy away at some point so watch this space!!
PS- if you do read this Atilola- Thumbs up again- very well done.....superduper proud!!!

A preview from ‘In My Pocket’

‘Goshe – A short form of Shokolokobangoshe
Scenario 2
Mummy Bobo: Olowo ori mi (owner of my head), how was that favourite food ofyours that I made for you? I am sure you enjoyed it. I have come to tell you about Bobo, your son. He is about to write his SSCE exams. The other day, I heard my senior wife bragging to her cousin that kola, her son, made all his papers two years ago because he is hardworking and brilliant. She then said she is sure Bobo will do the opposite and fail woefully. Olowo ori mi, please, don't let my enemies laugh at me. I know you can help me get the exam questions on the eve of every exam paper. This is the only way Bobo will be able to prove her wrong and shut her mouth forever. Daddy Bobo, you always say you love me more than my senior wife and if you really mean that, you will not let her have the last laugh over me.
Chief Goshe: Woman! Woman!! Woman!!!I have always warned you about this Bobo of a boy, but you will never listen tome. You spoil him too much, I hope he won't be the source of your downfall in future. Anyway, I will give you what you request, after which he will go to the UK to start his foundation course. You better warn your son to buckle up now,because there is no way I will fly over to meet David Cameron to organize exam papers by the time he gets to the UK. A word is enough for the wise. For now,the exam questions are not a problem. I have the education sector IN MY POCKET!

Scenario 3
Oloyinbo: (Getting up from his twominutes prostration, which Chief Goshe acknowledged by massaging his head with the sole of his left foot, he then starts hailing loudly) Baba Goshe, Baba mi,you will live long, your enemies will not see their children. Anyone that says it will not be well with you, it won't be well with them too.
Baba mi, the time has come. I need your help seriously. It’s time for the councillor election for the local constituencies. As I told you last year, I intend to contest and since I have adopted you as my political father, who else will I run to but you? Baba Goshe, don't worry about my credentials. The minimum requirement is the SSCE result and I have already sorted that out with some boys and now have my results. All I need now is your backing and support.Baba mi, I am in your hand now o.
Chief Goshe: Oloyinbo, my nephew,see your mango head like that of my father. You want to run for councillor,hmm? I thought you were joking when you mentioned it last year. I hope you know the implications of what you are doing? The politics of our time is not for the lily-livered at all. You have to be on your toes at all times. Be ready to make friends and enemies, be ready to do anything to protect your political career and even your life from political detractors. It’s a dog eat dog world and make sure you are ready for all the consequences. You should have just accepted the business I offered to set up for you, but you youths of nowadays have been bitten by the get-rich-quick bug. Since you insist, I will help you. I will take you to a meeting tomorrow, where you will meet some powerful people. But know this one thing, you must not, in turn, bite the fingers of these powerful people, including mine, when you win. You will have to dance to their tunes.Otherwise, the ground will have no choice but to reject you.
After tomorrow, your victory is a done deal. Even if you don't contest, you have won! It’s a done deal, I have the electoral system IN MY POCKET!

*Random post alert*

(Dear lovely Ghanaians, please correct me if I am wrong)

So for years now, I have been professing my love for Ghana. Like seriously, one would actually think I am hooked to a Ghanaian but that is not the case.
Now my obsession with Ghana began about six years or so ago and every time I have put it in my to do or more like to go list, I have always uhmmmmm skipped it for something else. Yes she is a busy lady.
Whenever, I see Ghanaians I always love talking to them and their accent to me is jest off de chain!! (just off the chain).  I am sooooo much in like with their accent because it just makes me smile.
I met a Ghanaian on one of my days out with my friend and we were heading to the train station to catch the train (Missy Tee what else will you go catch at a train station? A private jet? You do not have to explain what you were going to catch they already know. Ahh miss oxbridge).
Anyway, a friend who stays in the city we went to visit (Shef.) was very kind when we met at one of the very wonderful pretty colourful building we visited. We had to do a fun task as a team and this person happened to be on our team #thingsyoudowhenyouareatouristandthepeopleyoumeet. It was snowing cat and dogs so we were offered a ride to the train station as we had no car with us that day. When we got in the car, my fab friend struck a conversation about Ghana and its people. The music playing in the warm car, I was freezing cold in my socks, was Ghanaian music and I was just amazed at how lovely the song was and although I did not understand a word of it, it was just so danceable. So while in the car, my friend was talking about Banku- I believe that's a Ghanaian delicacy and I tried describing it and my dear at some point I just  had to shut up because I just could not describe it right.
So enroute , we had a little tour of S.field.  We saw the S.field foot and all that, the weird looking roads and buses. Twas fun. Anyway, we had a little discussion about Ghanaians being very colourful, funny and united and we had a good laugh in a space of about 15 mins. My friend said she attended a Ghanaian party and it was full of laughter, colour and plenty FOOD!! Well I think Africans are known for that.
When we got to the train station and we said bye to our heaven sent angel (it was snowing heavily so the ride had to be from God ha!) We both said , that was nice and fun.
I kind of wish now that I asked who sang the song playing and had written the track title down. Looking back now I am kind of rolling my eyes at myself.

Have a fabulous week and when I do go to Ghana, I shall let you know!


Happy Easter!!!!

Sunday 8 April 2012

Hello  beautiful people.

Happy Resurrection Sunday. Enjoy it and have a blissful one.
I know you've heard this before but it won't hurt to hear or read it again..... Remember the reason for the season *I can so see you rolling your eyes right now!


Back again with "Relationship" talks.

Saturday 10 March 2012

Really?? Source
Como estas? bien supongo?
(How are you? Fine I guess?)

So the 'relationship' talk came up again in one of my talks with the Ami . Thank goodness this one did not end in an argument.
We were talking about the main reason for going in a relationship.
From my point of view on what others think, I think majority of the ladies out there go in a relationship because they feel it is a necessity; they can't be alone without a man in their lives. I am not disputing this however I believe men also go into relationships because they just want to have a woman in their life for the moment- this is when they are not so ready or even planning on getting married in the nearest future.
Therefore, the ladies become exploited due to the patriarchal power the men have- some women and men give their all in relationships because they believe the other person is serious and would be their future partner. Minority of the people in this kind of scenario do go on to get married and all that because their feelings are mutual however majority end up in heartbreaks and all.
This topic is a bit confusing and rambling- don't be surprised if you are a bit lost with this.

Like always. here's a scenario;
a friend of mine who is still pretty young and in terms of marriage is not so ready for it right now was telling me about her "ex". According to her, she felt like she had a loose knot in her head when she was in the relationship. She said he would call her at night and say he is hungry and she will take her time out to cook for him and when she does call him to come pick the food up- he'd tell her to bring it over to his house which is not that close to hers. She also said during his birthdays- she bought him really expensive gifts and I can't seem to remember what she said she bought him once; he refused it and said why would she buy such "cheap" thing which was not SO or even cheap at all blah blah. So she said she apologised and took him to the store and on arrival at the store, she saw a really expensive gift and told him to take of which he embarrassed her or something- this was a long time ago so I do apologise that I can't remember the full story anymore.
She did explain that she thought she was mad in love with this dude but at the end, it turned out that he just wanted a "maid" or "girl figure" so he looked goooooddd in the midst of his friends. It turned out that the guy then realised that my lovely friend had stopped him in his tracks and he started begging. Thank God she was quick to get out of it.
My point- why exactly did she go in a relationship? She thought she loved him and thought it was high time she had some "man" power or figure in her life when that was the least of the things she needed.
Anyways, she did get out of that one- and has learnt her lesson so she is still single for now.

My friend said- this is another friend who is now married;
I need a man to complete me and not to rely on because majority of the women out there believe they need to rely on a man to be able to make it in life or be comfortable.
I agreed with her on the spot and really thought about it hard afterwards. I do not think ladies need men to make it in life, be comfortable and all that as they ok lemme say we think. This friend of mine was and is MADE and when I say MADE i mean MADE  I don't want to over exaggerate things now but she was pretty comfortable . If marriage was not a necessity I doubt if she'd actually have gone into it. She was comfortable as a spinster although she was pretty quiet and we had loads and loads of shopping, movies and lunch days oh how I miss you girl...see how marriage has moved you away from the city now :-(- I'm glad she is married though so I am not complaining. Even on her wedding day, you could see that she was complete- it was like a little piece of a puzzle being inserted into its place.
She made me understand that sometimes if you rely on men, you do not get the push to better yourself or be someone of your own, it makes you subordinate to men and vice versa if you are a man. But what can I say. Her words keep ringing in my mind whenever I think about the "relationship" topic.
When I see ladies hopping from one man to another, I keep thinking they could save themselves a lot of money, time, emotional stress and all that by waiting for the "right" one to "complete" them. 

So I can clarify things in my mind and to get everyones opinion on the topic- I have brought it here for you guys to please read and share you thoughts. What do you think? Thanks

PS- has anyone seen Good Deeds- Tyler Perry's new movie????? Oh my goodness- I absolutely love that movie to pieces. And why does Tyler Perry look so cute in that movie? Why aren't you a little younger and residing in my hood Tyler? *sigh* LOL.

Showing some love in Red, Gold and Black!

Monday 13 February 2012

Hey there bloghearts,

Thanks to everyone who commented on the previous post much appreciated.  Welcome to my lovely new readers.
So something snapped in my mind on Saturday when I was thinking about what to wear to church on Sunday.
Lo and behold, I thought about a strapless dress I wore at one of my friends wedding back in 2009. I had so much fun at that wedding, I wore two dresses, enjoyed the girly nights at the hotel and the bachelorette party was off the chain. So much fun argghhh.
Anyways back to the dress, I decided to dig out the dress and it was all rough and guess what, it was no longer sweeping the entire floor like it was almost doing 3 years ago. Well I decided to improvise as I love dresses that are so long that they totally touch the floor.

Dress before with the belt on the back
I decided to convert this beautiful dress to a skirt, a full skirt however, I did not want to sew anything or take anything off. Hence what I did was, I folded the top bit in half to make something like a band-look-a-like with the belt still showing.

.....folded in half and this is the front view
I particularly love the colours and felt like going all traditional on Sunday so I did, well kinda of!
I wore a black top which I got from DP- my favorite store, I just love the top because the sleeves reveal my wrist allowing me to wear bracelets on my wrists and not under the top on my wrist or over the top on my wrist.
I was also able to dress like this because the snow had melted so I was feeling the girl yea feeling feeling the girl yea!. LoL
...doing the twirl
I tied the belt which is not so visible in the picture above in a bow and it was holding the dress skirt in place. I never expected it to turn out so nice considering my skinny frame but it turned out really cute. I wore black flats and black earrings which are also not visible and a red and black bracelet along with my wrists bands which can be seen in the picture above (I wear them all the time or lets say majority).

I know I tried even if you don't see anything nice in the assemble! ;-) hehe
So in the spirit of Valentine's which is tomorrow, I hope you like.

Happy Valentine's day sweeties.

Feel free to share roses and chocolates with Missy tee's. You can send me an email for my postal address.


February: The month of Love and SNOW!!!!

Sunday 5 February 2012

Yes you read that right snow. We've just had snow since Christmas and No, its not funny.
How are you doing? I seriously mean this question I wanna know how you are all doing so let me know.
I am sorry I have been away for so long. I have definitely missed blogging. So it February, the famous month named the Love Month (sigh!). Valentine's day is just 9 days away so lets look out for chocolate and roses from someone who knows our zip code or some postman who mixes the zip code with another. (Just teasing!)

So what makes February so special, its the second month of the year, a month were lovers are meant to show affection towards each other by exchanging gifts and all that (is that right?)
Anyway, I got into an argument with a friend of mind regarding public display of affection, PDA for short! Before I talk about that; let me gist you about I love my baby that's my baby. (I typed this last week and it was sat in my draft pile of posts anyway here it is, I 'm merging posts here)

Yello' peoples (Okay that was MTN's way of saying Hello 10 years ago)
I am one for using sweet words like Darling, Sweetie, Sugar (love this the most), Love, Honey and so on get the gist.
But some people just take it way too far. I wouldn't have blogged about it if she had STOPPED saying baby!
I thought about this when a friend of mine whom we were inseparable back in Secondary School was telling me about her 'boyfriend' who she refers to all the time as 'My Baby'.
This young lady once told me when we were in Secondary School that her first boyfriend was going to be her husband but my darling friend kind of faced reality quickly. ***gist for another day****
We reconnected lately and we've been talking almost everyday and there is no time that she doesn't talk about 'Her Baby'. It gets on my nerves when it gets too much and I pull faces even though she can't see them but I do show her sometimes by sending her bbm ***rolling eyes or not interested*** but she doesn't get it most times because I am too nice I guess that I literally send them in a nice way.
Whenever she updates her BBM status, she just says the same thing- 'I miss my 'Baby' and all that. When she sends me IMs, majority of what she says is; I can't wait to see my baby, my baby is so busy, my baby bought me this, my baby and I are just out chilling, my baby and I are going to church, my baby and I....... and I find it so hard to just tell to zip it (a more polite way to say 'Shut it!').
Oh no not again!! Source
I am not saying she shouldn't tell me about her boyfriend but she goes too far with it sometimes and she also just doesn't quit saying my baby. She does realise sometimes that she is saying my baby too much but she can't control it. She says it so much that she can make you snap at her unconsciously.
I was one day pushed to actually tell her to quit the 'baby' talk because its getting too much.

Back to the argument now; we were talking as usual and she said ' When my baby and I go out, I get shy when he kisses me'. My dear, my head went rolling 4606 degrees and I said uhmmm lady what are you talking about? Before I say what I told her, I do not really believe in all that kind of PDA with a boyfriend, he has to put a ring on the finger and pay the necessary things beforehand. I am pretty traditional so please do not slaughter me.
So I asked her, are you meant to be doing that most especially when you are not sure he is for keeps? Kiss on the hand or cheek is fine but not going that far*. So I went on to say that what if you break up with him now and then you go out with another and then you'd kiss that one too? That means you'd have a list of kissed or PDAed ex-boyfriends?
She kept saying, I don't see anything wrong with that. You have to, it is necessary and  all that she was starting to get a little angry and I had to pull back a bit. She kept going on saying that they are really close and have been friends since childhood and they trust each other so much and bla bla. It got so complicated and she just went on and on but at the end of it all she said 'it is well' and that made me laugh because I was dazed, she was the one getting all upset about the issue. I just changed the topic.
I love things done in moderation and in the right way which is the traditional way.

So who are the fabulous people to tell about this other than my beautiful blogfam. What do you think? Am I too traditional or what? Was she right in her saying? Is being traditional wrong?
I really wanna know so please drop some thoughts. Thanks!

And oh yea we finally had some snow. Grrrr , not that I am excited about that but what can I do. My fingers were going numb holding the wheel and my back and shoulders were all tensed because I was just so stiff. Sigh!
Here are some pictures, its not even that heavy snow and also during the week when the snow was still prepping to fall, I noticed on my way out that my gloves and nail varnish MATCHED! It was so unplanned and I really did not know until I was heading out. I smiled to myself when I realised, I just hope no one saw me when I did that #littlethingsthatexciteyouinthemorning. Please ignore the keys and my lovely keyholder, love it!
The not-so thick snow

My Unplanned matching nail colour and glove
In other news, I heard about Chigal about 4 days ago while snooping around Youtube (not that I do it all the time). Like I always say, there is love in sharing.

You get itit? Please watch, she is HILARIOUS!

I look forward to reading your thoughts guys.
*apologies for the long post*

Seriously- What is the matter?

Saturday 21 January 2012

Hey bloghearts,

So whats the matter with Nigeria right now?

Its so annoying and heart-breaking to so see people losing their lives and being killed for no reason at all. So about 150 people have been killed in Kano, Nigeria by *you know who*.
I have been keeping away from saying anything about *you know who* on my blog but I just have to at this moment.
Why are Nigerians being treated like this? What is going on? Is it nearing the endtime as described Revelations? What? Why? Who? When?....those are the questions being asked by Nigerians.
-If you have noticed, I just am so dumbfounded about the issue that all I can do is ask questions-
It is disheartening and appalling. Seriously????

Also about the fuel price at N95? Nigerians kind of dissappointed mehn. I did not think they'd settle for anything higher than the former N65. They should note that because Uncle Jona has agreed for fuel price to be reduced to N95 does not mean he doesn't know what he is doing. When fuel price hits N147 in the future again, they will be unconsciously roped in to accept that price. For crying out loud, right now fuel is N3 away from N100 per litre!!!! Really? Wooooooow- I still don't gree- I think I'll continue my protest over here.

Also about Seal and Heidi Klum's divorce. WHAT?? I thought they were the perf... couple. All these famous people, J-Lo and Marc, Kim and Kris, Katy and Russell and now Heidi and Seal??
They keep getting married and divorced like they are changing their babies nappies!
Well......some rantings of mine.



Happy 2012 + Nigeria we hail thee! +Funny video below **updated post**

Saturday 14 January 2012

Merry Happy New Year sugars. *I'm going to act like I haven't been away for too long *silent apology*.
Hope 2012 is going good for you guys and you are keeping up with your resolutions? Don't let them slip though (wait till Feb and I bet you'd even forget about the list of resolutions).
So so so, I can't act like I haven't been hearing things about Nigeria the great in the news for like forever now. First thing I heard of was the fuel subsidy removal and the fuel price hike to N147 from N65.
First up, I think the people we have in government now are so rich that they believe everybody in Nigeria can afford to buy fuel for N147.
They are so covered in the face with the wealth and affluence that it is so hard for them to see that Nigerians are not happy with the way they are being governed.
*I do not intend to mention names or curse or point fingers*
Nigerians do not have a good source of electricity, majority of the people in Nigeria run their electrical appliances on their own private energy source, the ever faithful generators. No wonder Chinese and Japanese generator makers enjoy business in Nigeria. That is one thing the government has turned a blind eye to for decades. To further increase people's agony, they are hiking the fuel price meaning that they might not be able to use their generators like before, people might not be able to use their cars like before. This therefore leads to increased armed robbery rates not only due to the hike but the darkness as a result of no electricity source in Nigeria will become more pronounced, people will have to start walking and using public transport means of which they will also increase their transport fares forcing some people to resort to walking long distances or just point blank sitting at home, becoming jobless. Removing the fuel subsidy doesn't even seem like there is going to be any difference because it wasn't even felt before so removing it and adding it to something else also does not mean what it is being added to is going to be felt- that's just some rambling thoughts. Notwithstanding, I am not supporting the fuel subsidy removal.
Nigeria's so called budget is probably NOT for Nigeria because it is NOT felt in Nigeria. All that budget for maintenance, education and bla bla bla, it is all gist. Buildings have been erected for decades and they do not do any silly maintenance on them so they end up collapsing, yet they claim that there is some budget for building maintenance? pls tell that to the trees, they are willing to hear all that, that's just an example.

Happy New Year!

Wednesday 11 January 2012


Happy New Year sweeties, Its taken me too long to say this but better late than never *wink*.
I am typing my opinion about the fuel subsidy in Nigeria- Yes I have to. Its by force. LoL. Before I post it, I need to make sure I'm not offending anyone so it will be up as soon as I am done with it.
Be back in a few!
