Let your private life be just that; private!

I’m seeing situations happen like this all the time on Facebook and I find it extremely irritating! I still believe that some things in one’s private life is not meant for EVERYBODY to know about. And that’s why it’s called private!


You don’t have to announce your relationship status on FB for the people who actually care about you to know. Get a clue, people.

Have a good night 🙂


My first love

Today makes it officially one month and I can truthfully say that I have never ever in my life been more in love.

From the moment I laid my eyes on her, I fell in love instantly and ever since, my love has continued to grow daily. I wake up in the mornings thinking about those beautiful eyes, never have I seen such beautiful eyes. 

I can’t begin to mention everything that’s perfect about you. As cheesy and cliche as it sounds, I believe in my heart that God took his time when creating you because you are a very rare masterpiece.

I feel so incomplete without you. I guess that what love does to you. Sometimes I wonder why it took me so long to find you and how my life was ever complete without you. To this day, I can never figure it out.

I know the world is nowhere near perfect, but it may interest you to know that you make my life perfect.

You bring out the best in me, and although I may never say it enough, I want you to know that I love you beyond words can express. You have brought immense joy to my life and I thank God for bringing you into my life.

This is wishing us many more oil changes, and very infrequent visits to the mechanic.

I love you dearest Civic.

#InaNigerianHouse (Scene II)


Popsi barges into the living room, visibly irritated.

Me (thinking): Uh-oh

Popsi: Ah-ahn, where have you guys been this entire time? I’ve been calling and calling your phones non-stop!

Me: Oh, Sorry dad, I left my phone in my room (because I knew you were going to call me to pack up the dishes after you were done eating).

Pops: It is a mobile phone. You are supposed to take it with you wherever you go.


After clearing the dishes or whatever the important thing popsi was ‘calling and calling’ me for, I go back to check my phone and I guess what I see…


and to think pops had been ‘calling and calling’ me.



Have a laugh…

I was on Yahoo! the other day and I came across this article…

The top ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2011 are:

•Convict sues couple he kidnapped for not helping him evade police (Its called payback, retard!)

•Man illegally brings gun into bar, gets injured in a fight, then sues bar for not searching him for a weapon

•Young adults sue mother for sending cards without gifts and playing favorites

•Woman disagrees with store over 80-cent refund, sues for $5 million

•Mom files suit against exclusive preschool over child’s college prospects

•Man suing for age discrimination says judge in his case is too old

•Obese man sues burger joint over tight squeeze in booths (Notice ‘Obese’ – Instead of this ode to be at the gym)

•Woman sues over movie trailer; says not enough driving in “Drive” (Hey, how about you go drive off a cliff, one less idiot)

•Passenger’s lawsuit says cruise ship went too fast and swayed from side to side

•Mother sues Chuck E. Cheese – says games encourage gambling in children (Child sues mother for her immense stupidity)

                                                                                                                                     (Culled from Yahoo!)



What the heck? These folks need help…and fast.


Inspired by the #inanafricanhouse tweets trending on Twira (Twitter), I decided to make several mini- posts about things that can’t fly #inanigerianhouse- with a special concentration on my house.

Doing dishes:

Till tomorrow, I am absolutely terrified of leaving dishes in the sink. Popsi dislikes, scratch that, H-A-T-E-S seeing dishes in the sink. You can’t even leave a teaspoon in the sink and go see that commercial you’ve always wanted to see or the last few minutes of that popular telenovela.

And of course, because popsi isn’t always in the mood to do his own dishes (momsi never serves his food on just one dish), you have to pause whatever you’re doing to wash the dishes.
If you have a younger brother you can deceive or sell your meat to in return for washing the dishes, good for you. If not…my condolences.

Whenever this happens I just think about how much my children will enjoy 😉

Happy New Year

What can I say…new year, new resolutions.

Like many of you, I’m trying to make certain changes in my life; have a closer relationship with God, read more, work out more (and yes finally, get a 6-pack) and all that good stuff.

I believe the key to keeping new year resolutions is pacing ourselves. See, we try to morph into a whole new person literally overnight, chances are we keep up for the next few days  weeks, and then we’re back where we began. I’ve fallen victim of this same vicious cycle over and over again.

I have taken the liberty to list a few tips to help with keeping our resolutions. I’m no professional or anything but from all the information I’ve gathered, I think it all boils down to these…

  • Know what you want: This actually goes without saying. Knowing exactly what you want to change about yourself goes a looong way. Remember the saying; knowing the problem is the first step in solving it (paraphrased). Of course, it has to be realistic also. Writing a list of realistic changes and taping it to your mirror (or somewhere you’re sure to see it everyday) can help keep you on track too.
  • Plan and pace yourself: Want to shed sixty pounds this year? Why not plan to lose 5 pounds every month rather than just burning yourself out in the first couple of months and then feeling like a total failure by May? Remember, failing to plan is planning to fail (cliche but true!)
  • Share your resolutions: At least the ones that you are comfortable sharing. It probably isn’t a good idea to tell your mom/dad/grandmother/pastor that you plan to have herpes less frequently this year.  Share the ones you want to with your buddies and whomever you feel comfortable discussing it with.
  • Reward yourself: My favorite! Who doesn’t like a little reward? You can get yourself a new game or something cool. It helps to know what you’re going to reward yourself with so you have something to look forward to.

Good luck with your resolutions, my new friends. Have a happy, fulfilling, prosperous, and amazing new year.
