I have a close friend who keeps his mom's old wrapper from back in the day close to him...all the time he says... to work, to a blanky. I thought that was cute...slightly gay but cute!

I'm currently in a hotel room with my roommate..she's taking the MCAT tomorrow... I hope she does good!

I'm funny DamnIT!

I really shouldn't put my mom's brothers on blast and call them all kinds of names for always trying to take advantage of my mom.
I really shouldn't because it's not the nigerian respect your elders thing to do. However, one of these days i might just be pissed enough to do so. Sha, all that rubbish has stopped.

I was having a conversation with my two sisters yesterday..and i discovered the source of my issues! They always steal my original really funny jokes and pass them on as their own or each others! :(

Ha! Lol @ GB2...sorry dude! My internet has been smoking some low grade crack of recent.

Ah..well... so I'm a naturally contemplative person..always thinking. So my sister calls me up.. and says that him..remember him from HWNSNBM (circa November 2006)? supposed to be in town for some type of check up. Now that I feel more exposed than i thought I would ever want to be.... Wouldn't hurt to have him read two whole posts about him... right? I need the closure. Right?

if i had blogged yesterday
today would've been my 100th blog entry!!
However..i didnt.
So this is 99.
And i'm so freaking pooped I have not been able to sit down and think.

I do however thank God for my job and my boss
I love how she always has my back!! :)


Today I was thinking bout yesterday
And I felt a twinge of jealousy
It wasn't immediate...but it surfaced.
then i remembered that there's nothing to warrant jealousy..
still..i think about it..

Ryan and Kane Sheckler are hot!
Shane is ok...but his big ears throw me off
poor middle child!!
We gon' make it!

Goulash...(or some other soup!)

First of all.... GO COWBOYS...!! Please make me proud. As much as i love Jeremy Shockey...I want my boys to make it. Jessica Simpson be damned!

Today in church, the pastor as usual was talking to me!!
Luke 15:1-5,8 and 15-endish.
The prodigal son story.
The moral of the story is the same..always the same
However, something he said really stuck with me.
He said: "People treat you how they treat you because they don't know who you are connected to (God)" So it's your job (my job), to remember who I'm connected to and to remember that when dealing with people and analyzing how they treat me. It was a good sermon.

In other news,
I'm really excited about the Sarah Connor Chronicles.... i think Fox is going to be taking up majority of my TV watching time this season.

Wingman Etiquette 101 roommate met this guy @ 40/40 last year....well she met a lot of guys, but she liked this one. And she hadn't seen him since. So... she decided to meet him in new york and I offered to go with her just in case, you know..whatever.
Did I feel like a third wheel? Absolutely, but I was fine with it because she's my roommate and I know she'd do the same for me.
The dude invited his keep me company i guess...what a freaking disaster!!

First of all, regardless of my absolutely no dating/self recovery '08. I was looking pretty hot (says me and at least five other dudes between 42nd and 31st)...just cuz, you's what I do..hehee. His friend Greg/Trayvon the 19 year old totally sucked!! Sucked!! I mean, I wasn't drunk, but I was semi-tipsy enough to be friendly.

To this end, I'm listing certain dos and donts for supposed wingmen.

1. Do be on time
2. Do attempt to hold a decent/educated conversation
3. Do offer to buy the lady a drink
4. Do NOT get into an argument with the lady about accents or football or basketball!!!! are you crazy?
5. Do NOT lie to the lady about your age..or your name!
6. Do NOT expect a hug or number at the end of the night.
7. Do be discerning enough to know when the lady has shut down and is no longer willing to communicate with you.

Tragically Melancholic Thursday

So in this moment...i just want to scream!
YOU WIN...whatever game it is you are playing...YOU WIN. I LOSE, I LOST...I lost everything.
And in the same breath...i want to be composed and summarily dismiss I/we can move on.
And then the very next second...sighs
And then I remember.... SHIT! NO

I think my windows media player on shuffle hates me... if not why is it playing this song right now?
Lips of an angel--Hinder hates me!
Now it's playing
Why did you mess with forever--John Mayer

Well..that was my thursday...tragically..
Thank God for tomorrow no? :)

Christmas memories

Just remembered
I decided to bring up some issues i had with my parents one day..
Me: Daddy do u remember when i was studying for common entrance and you told me that if i didnt pass it i would be selling pepper on the street?
Daddy: enh?
Mommy:*chomping away at something..probably chicken bone*
Fioms: haha
Me: yep, i remember it very well
Mommy: *still chewing* eh, even if we did, maybe you weren't doing something you should have been doing like studying hard.
Me: I guess...but still
Fioms: you sound traumatized
Daddy: Me, i dont remember, maybe you dreamt it!
See me see trouble...why would i dream my parents threatening me like that.
This conversation then drifted into this one:
Fioms: I dont know why you ppl would say that to her
Me: I know right, I always did well in school.
Fioms: yep, I was always competing with you
Me: where?
{she is 5 or 6 years older than me so we'd never even be close to the same grade}
Fioms: I dunno, in school in everything...on the SATs
...she scored ten points higher....
Me: *shocked..flattered*'re not serious.

Lol, I was just suprised, because all this while, i've been doing me barely trying ,not realizing that she...DR. SHE was/has been competing with me. It made me feel good..feel blessed..feel fortunate that I've been blessed with stuff that I sometimes take for granted/ me brain.

In other news

there is a pompadour-having step aerobics savant in my class..always talking to himself and shouting out the steps... MIND YOURSELF O!!! I dont need two instructors.

Manic Monday

I'm done...
It's really sad, yeah there's a glimmer but no way
I love me more..too much

Lots of Obama talk today
we'll see

Can't believe I was a part of something that adds SO little to my life
I'm happy to be free of it

What part of 2008 is a ME year do ppl not get?
I guess a little brutal honesty never hurt anyone

Learnt in church yesterday to hold my tongue.
To appreciate last year's instructions/tests/temptation because
It's maturing me for this year and all it's blessings.

I've forgiven and forgotten
Cuz I'm freaked out by the things that God has forgiven me for over the years
If He can, I definitely can.

Andy Rooney on 60 minutes
This man was talking about the names of the presidential hopefuls and comparing them to past presidents and things named after them. Fine, everyone is entitled to their opinions... when it comes to names like Huckabee, i and understand how JFK international airport would sound funny if it was called huckabee...or if Washington,DC was called Giuliani,DC.
What I have a problem with, is the fact that he is comparing America today to back in the day america where all the power belonged to the majority which was white. built on the backs of slaves, land stolen from natives, melting pot is not the same. Sure your navigator would sound weird being called an Obama navigator but what in the hell does that have to do with picking someone different who might possibly be just what this country needs. Interesting how he didnt mention bush or clinton.
In conclusion, Andy Rooney, mind yourself oh, Don't give me cause to attack those eyebrows with some wax!

Part Deux

Torticollis..or whatever the call it.. why me? three times? seriously? However, vicodine....*drools*.
I have addict tendencies

My favorite team came last in the Amazing Race :( Shucks!! Down but not out.

I want to compile my own bucket list!

BestBuy Update.. HA!

So..three blogs or so ago, i was complaining about my issues with bestbuy naturally, I had to complain and send an email... This is what i wrote.:). I should be a writer yo!

I closed my account today at the Best Buy store in BLOGSVILLE,BG because of an extremely rude cashier. I've been a loyal best buy customer of a little under two years and when i went in today to make a purchase I have never felt more degraded and discriminated against as i did today. I am recovering from laryngitis and when i was asked by the cashier if i had a reward zone card, i said yes, but he claims that he did not hear me and swiped my credit card anyway. when i asked him to void the transaction he said that he could not and that i needed to speak up next time. Upon hearing this, I asked for a manager, who came by and was even ruder than that cashier. I promptly requested to be directed to where i could close my account.I understand that you guys dont need my business and my closing my account does absolutely nothing to affect you. I just want you to know how terribly lacking your customer service is at that store.

Love...and Death

So, I was jejely having a pretty good day actually. I can check off one thing on my to do list! YAY me! when my friend gave me this blog to read. Sorry to the blogger for exposing it to my many many readers *yeah right*, but it IS on the internet. She writes about really sad issues in a relationship and all the things she went through as a result of it.
I know that God only gives us what we can handle...but can I please request not having to handle that. Well, ok I'm older than she was, but even in my old age, I can't.
I'm wondering if one of the main reasons(among others of course), why Nigerian marriages last-- on average is because of the strict guidelines that parents place(d) on their children...more so back in the day than today.
He must be from your village
He must have ten cows
His family must have more than one son etc etc.
Not that this really has anything to do with what type of person he is. But it reduces the amount of "other issues" that may come up in the relationship.
Dunno, am just thinking out loud.
So, it's safe to argue that, hopefully, being a younger, more open-minded generation, growing up in completely different circumstances than most of our parents and their parents before them...some of "those issues" are things that are overlooked now.
Me sha o, I know I've sworn off the whole love and dating thing this year :). *SHUT UP*
But, while I dont really see myself marrying a muslim or a catholic...person doesnt necessarily have to be igbo. Nigerian tho. My poor parents.
They'll be ok, I have fully established myself as the rebel, so it'll be easier for everyone involved.

I know relationships are hard, but at least even if you break up with someone, they're not gone forever (or till we meet to part no more).
I consider myself quite blessed because I haven't lost too many ppl that I'm close to. Only my great-grandmother, my grandpa and my little baby cousin Emmanuel that I never got to know. This scares me..especially since my Grandma, who i love dearlyis pretty old. I'm grateful for the time I get to spend with her. I'm grateful that she is a christian so I know i'll see her in heaven. I'm grateful that she's still spry and has her wits about her and that her soups and stews are still the best I've ever tasted. I can't even begin to feel the pain of ppl that have lost those close to them. It happens everyday...on one hand, yes I understand that this earth is only temporary but to not be able to call/see/talk to someone till then. sighs. I'm not a big confronter of death, especially my own mortality. I don't think I'm ready to talk about it yet. I should blog about it for posterity but not do i end this post?

So, last year...I didnt start off with resolutions...and look how well that worked out.. hehehee.
This year however, I will not start off with resolutions but rather..TO DO LISTS. So, here is my
January TO-DO-LIST:
1. Get more organized at work:
How you ask? Well, I've decided to also have a daily to-do list at work.
Not the anal kind like some ppl I know, but just one outlining what I have
to do for the day. And if I don't complete it, move it to the next day.
2. Get involved in some type of charity/volunteer organization:
Seriously, I've been slacking on this but I'm going to dedicate this month
to researching what's out there and seeing where I fit.
3. Get involved with my African Heritage Business Resource Group:
They need young blood. It's just that the meetings take forever and they
are all the way up the hill!! :(
4. Research that Clinical Research Certificate and what schools near by offer it:
Can't it seems interesting enough.
5. Get involved with the whole Diversity and Inclusion thing:
They need help!
6. Join a GYM!
LMAO..ok, i'm definitely too cheap for this one. But I am getting bored
with my workouts. I know some gyms offer trial periods...lets see how many free ones I can get!
7. Start Reading
So, I havent finished my Harry Potter Series (mainly cuz BOOK 3 came on and i was like "seriously, if i watch it i don't have to read it do i? but i
cant bring myself to move on to BOOK 4). Plus I got this really cool book
for christmas...I'm stuck on chapter one :(. THEN yesterday at my impromptu guilt/mind clearing induced workout, i saw that Sophie Kinsella has a new book out!!...wait a minute, i can't find it on amazon! crap! The only one doesnt come out till February 2008).

Thas it.

2008 ~ This Year

No Occasion justifies hatred;
No injustice warrants bitterness,I choose love.
This year, I will love God and what God loves.

I will invite God to be the God of circumstance.
I will refuse the temptation to be cyncal..
the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than
human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less
than an opportunity to see God.

I will live forgiven. I will forgive so that I may live.

I will overlooke the inconveniences of the world.
Instead of cursing those who take my place, I'll invite them to do so. Rather
than complain that the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment to pray.
Instead of clinching my fists at new assignments, I will face them with joy
and courage.

I am a spiritual being
After this body is dead, my spirit will soar.
I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.
I choose self-control. I will be drunk only by joy.
I will be impassioned only by my faith.
I will be influenced only by God.
I will be taught only by Christ.
