Merry Xmas

Merry Christmas blogsville, it's been centuries since you last saw me here, and yes I've missed you too :-).
Sadly my holiday season hasn't been too "chrismasy"maybe I was expecting too much, I was hoping for a better one as compared to last year's which was a total disaster_ oh well I'm still alive and kicking, so there's a lot to be grateful for no?

I guess y'all busy making resolutions for 2012. Tataa... I'll go make mine now_ this time I plan to stick to it to the teeth lol...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year_ I need to get me a mistletoe wink!

Mystery

What is the title of the movie in which Mel Gibson is able to read the minds of women_ what a girl wants or what a girl needs, or none of the above lol.

We are so different from the male counter parts, and though we will never really figure out what makes the other tick, I sure wish that each time we encounter the opposite, we don't forget we are not of the same sex, thus the need to be considerate of their wants and their needs.

The 'unmarrying' kind

What and who is the 'unmarrying' kind? Sitting at an engagement and for some reason I can't seem to shake the question off. Is it someone who doesn't believe in marriage, can't simply commit, or not marriage material? In fact what the heck is marriage material?

A toast to you

I planned to write a list of reasons why i think you are so amazing, a list to tell you how much i appreciate you, to let you know that i love you to bits, but i realise now that it will be so long, i might need a year to complete it.

However i can assure you, that come next year on this very day, do expect that list in the mail, it may take you another year to read, but it will be worth the read.

I'm so grateful to have you in my life, thank you for being my father and my friend.

Happy birthday daddy :-)

Total sham

The first phone call came from a lady_ she informed me, i had been randomly selected to win a $500 grocery voucher. In order to receive it, i was only required to pay a confirmation fee of of $4.99.
So if i would kindly give her my credit card number i should expect the voucher within 3 to 5 days.

For a split second, she aroused my interest, then my alarm bells went off. Why should i give out my credit number to some total stranger?
I explained to her, i could do no such thing without any verification or whatsoever. Assuming i had received the voucher already and had to pay some amount in order to access it, perhaps then i would consider that possibility.

She went into some winding soliloquy about her organization and their genuineness blah blah... I wondered which side of the bed she thought i woke up from that morning, or perhaps i might have the word 'moron' imprinted on my forehead.

I politely thanked her and informed her i was not interested in receiving any voucher and hanged up_ that was about 5 days ago

Yesterday_same number, same story, the only difference; male voice.

Me: i 've heard all that you've said sir, but i am not interested in your offer

Man: but madam! you have been randomly selected

Me: are you kidding me, when did wining anything become by force_ click...


NB_these people must think, we are all a bunch of idiots.

Setting the bar

In a city of great expectations, do we ever get all that we really want?
Are our expectations too high, that we fail to see when we have it all?


When do you settle, and when do you keep looking?

Black or White

It lingers on my mind all day, and just before the sand master sprinkles his dust, i give it a once over
I'm looking for an answer to a question, that i may already know.

Miscommunication

It's so strange that what you say, and what i hear, are two different things
Is it that i'm not listening or that you are not communicating
I'm beginning to wonder if it is my ears, or my heart that is receptive
It seems you and i are simply lost in translation

Strange addiction

On the bus ride home, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the old man sitting a couple of seats away. He was so engulfed in the what he was doing, that he seemed not to notice the nine or so pair of eyes shooting bullets holes through his head.

For the thirty-five minutes ride to my stop, i watched him pull out the graying hair around his chin and neck area, and with each pluck, he popped the strand in his mouth and savored the taste with pure delight.

Though I found the sight quite disturbing, my eyes were but glued to the ritual. As my gaze traveled to his receding hairline, I wondered if the recession was natural or he had tucked a napkin in his collar and had had himself a feast.

He must be suffering from Trichotillomania (hair-pulling disorder)_goggled the word, can’t even pronounce it lol

What strange addictions do you know about?

Shut up or Speak up

Lets face it people, nobody likes to be called out, we don't take it well.

Bottling up what's eating you may nevertheless be a recipe for disaster, should the lid blow, that is a tsunami in the works

So how do you voice out a flaw_ Yes! Love me, love my dog, but seriously what if the dog is a little monster, do you tip toe around it, or take a jab at it. Even if you manage to find the blurry line in between and let it slip, you are 98% of the time bound to suffer the aftermath of an attack, or denial, the worst being_ the silent treatment.

Therefore, if i may ask, when does criticism become less constructive and more destructive? Can a person not speak their mind, without the other taking offense or a blow to the ego.

Not so... cut & dry

I spent the afternoon with a group of friends, we were 5 in number 3 girls and 2 guys, the conversation traveled the slippery sloppy road of the weather,to places, politics, events, people, music and finally shot down to relationships.

Why do men cheat?

The guys contended that, men since time memorial have been polygamous by nature. If anything, monogamy is the exception and not the rule. A look at the Biblical great men says it all, hell Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines.
However my question then is, was that the true intention of God?_ how come he did not make a multitude of Eves for Adam then?
They muddied the waters, by shifting gears from Christianity to Islam_ , we limited our comeback to different strokes for different people.

Then came the lame justification about variety being the spice of life. In that case if a woman also decides she’s bored with the same old light soup, and would like her some peanut soup, shouldn't that fly?

Of cos they found it totally unacceptable_ double standards rules

Lastly came the blame card; about how women push them into the arms of other women and on and on they went…

Why do women cheat?
We argued that unlike men it is “normally” not in our nature_ but of cos there are exceptions. However, should a woman cheat on her man, the problem is mostly because of the man_ he must have stopped loving her, or simply has not mastered the art of loving her_ of cos they wasted no time in butchering us lol

Networking

Nobody wakes up in the morning and decides, "today is the day i'm going to cheat". I don't believe it is ever a calculated venture from the inception.

It starts with the innocent hello, which ends up in hell, and now that the cell phone has evolved into a compressed laptop, social networking has never been more easy. So if you are spending too much time strolling down digital Memory Lane, an emotional affair could be in the works_ you are a human being, are you not?

What started as a match of wits ends up in one partner sharing himself or herself with another person, which chips away the foundation of core relationship, creating a platform for a new one.

A friendly relationship snowballs into something more meaningful, a feeling of connection with that other person which supersedes a current relationship.

Lets beware of the dangers.

why

Why are we so afraid of change? The present is no good, yet we stay
Are we so scared of what is out there, that we would rather not explore
Maybe its because change might be for the worst, so we stick with the worse
The lesser evil we call it, what the hell is that?
Shouldn’t what we fear be fear itself?

Read the sign

NYC is sprouting with Africans at every corner, and for some reason you would think each persons nationality is imprinted on their foreheads or something, cos you just know.

So when picking up my medical report, and this brother accidentally or calculatedly bumped into me and sent my envelop flying. I noticed two things_ that he was totally hott, nice teeth, but the first thought was that he looked Ghanaian.

So when he apologized in his LAFA_ locally acquired fake accent, my hand was on the money_ oh! I’m sorry_ could not escape the deep rooted Ghanaian accent, and my “ Its okay” must have been splotched with the same inescapable root, because the next line was; I’m Kobby_ and here I thought I looked kind of exotic or Nigerian lol


*turned out we went to the same college_ small world*

What is it?

At this stage in my life, you would think i know exactly what i want, i could close my eyes and just map out my future for the next couple of years_ Yes! the future they say is unknown, but seriously we all should have an idea of what we're looking forward to, right?

Sadly, things don't seem to work out the way it should. Maybe i become too comfortable, kick back and expect stuff to fall in place.

And when i pour my heart and soul into it, it blows up in my face, now i'm left wondering_ what is it i'm doing so wrong?

I got questions on my mind, and the answers seem gazillions miles away...

To plan or not to plan?

Fire and Ice

I kinda feel new at this, it’s been centuries since last I blogged
Finished exams today, everybody is so excited, finally we get to put the books down and paint the town red_ law students gone wild!
I soo... looked forward to today, it’s yet to live up to what I imagined, but hey, the hour is still young and maybe I’m just tired.
All thanks to the Heavenly Father for bringing us this far, perhaps now i can blog more_ that’s if I haven’t completely lost my mojo lol...

Long time no see!

How small mistakes can cost in life.

A baker was asked to print the words 1st John 4:18 on a wedding cake _ " There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear; because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love"
Instead he printed John 4:18 _"For you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband"

Lol, stole this or should I say borrowed it :-)

I know, its been centuries, I must confess I think I’ve lost my mojo, I don’t enjoy the stuff I write anymore, let alone to post it_ sobbing.....

LAFA

“Locally Acquired Foreign Accent”

Do you have one? Or like me, it pops up in your phone voice :-)

Yes everybody has a phone voice,and depending on the caller, or place, mood, la-bra-la, la-bra-la it changes

Boo hates my LAFA, but seriously; I’m not conscious of when it kicks in. He says it’s no excuse, because if suddenly he started speaking Spanish, he’ll know lol...

Last night I was listening to the radio; the host calls some random number and plays a prank on the unsuspecting victim. The LAFA at the end of the line! _ Charley! No size

The phony American accent_ I’m sure the recipient was going for, no bi children. It was simply something else. My ears got bruised just from listening _ Ouch! Still hurts lol
We dey Ghana ooo... If ebi British accent sef, we go fit take am like that :-)

I sure hope my brief LAFA episodes sound nothing like the one surfing the radio waves.

NO MORE LAFA!


*la-bra-la_ extra, etc*
*No size_ No competition*
*No bi children_ no child’s play*

Self WORTH

I came across an article about self worth, the essence of valuing yourself; you’re worth as much as you give yourself credit for. So if you make that price tag too low, don’t expect anyone else to see different.

I hereby declare; I shall not beat myself up over things that make me question me , nor dwell on the flaws I’m susceptible to. I’m only human and I can’t be perfect; I can only endeavour to be the best I can be.

So cheers to all the wonderful things about me, I may not hold a PhD; not yet anyway, but I’m smart and learning. I’m beautiful inside and out, I’m lovable and kind. Maybe a little freaky, but I’m down to earth and homey. I see the best in people; too trusting but hey that’s the only way I can sleep at night. I’m forgiving_ No! I’m no fool, maybe just a little naive :-)

I’m not afraid to laugh at myself blah, blah, blah.... _ the more I think about all the great things about moi the better I feel about myself :-)
So whenever you’re feeling down, and you question whether you’re good enough? Smart enough? Pretty enough? Just go to that quite place in your mind and think about all the wonderful things that make you, you.
You are worth it and you deserve the very best.

Oh! Did I mention I’m sexy... hehehehehehehehe...

(So if you’re fortunate to have me in your life, you should count yourself blessed. There's so many great things about me, whats there not love?)

Courting too long

Yesterday my civil procedure tutorial generated into family law, one single question and the tables had been turned.

Interrogatories had morphed into Divorce.

The lecturer’s assistant _ brilliant lawyer if I may say so, not only answered the question but fueled the change of topic some more :-)
He went on to tell us how he had recently refrained from doing divorce cases, because 98% of the time, it was guaranteed to turn nasty, and if you were married or in some relationship you would be tempted to start sniffing around for all manner of signs before the alarm bells go off, and before long you'll start being way to careful and paranoid.

He was of the opinion that; the main reason for the sky rocketing divorce rate was the long period of courtship_ huh?

His argument was simply this; courtship is a pretence period, where each partner puts up a show for the other, so despite dating for many years 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 12 ; 60% or more is pretense. That is how come within the first six months of marriage most couples realise they are strangers to each other.

So his policy is this; when you meet that person you truly believe you cannot live without, that one person who cannot live without you, marry quickly and start getting to know each other better, it is only by living with that significant other,that you can truly get to know him. or her and adapt quickly in learning to accommodate that person.

Otherwise you may be left with false expectations and you'll find yourself thinking aloud “but when we were dating this is not how he or she would normally have reacted to A, B or C

One side of my brain appreciates this view somewhat, the other half is like_ HUH!

Hmm... is there any weight to his argument?

Fartastic

A good and loud fart is honourable
A medium fart is tolerable
Softer wind breaks are terrible
But the silent ones are unbearable

:-) how's the week going y'all?

Fartastic i hope lol


p.s_ for lack of a better word i borrowed the heading from a fellow blogger, props to you ;-)

Miracles

The sign on the barbering shop read “anything is possible” it was only natural that it drew laughter, for I could not help but imagine the excuse a customer would receive in case his or her haircut ended badly.

Customer: what kind of haircut is this, why are you blind or something?

Barber: my brother did you not read the sign “anything is possible” before entering?

It brings back memories from my senior high school days, where I attained my certificate as a “Rosec barber”_ oh yes a certified approved barber of St Roses. Alas I was not the only one, we equally had wicked barbers who could match snip for snip, the anything is possible dude.

Gifty should have taken judicial notice of the wonders that could occur during a haircut session for she acquired the nickname “Nike” a miraculous impression carved into her hair lol

Hope the New Year's going great for you, mine is still very crappy :-(
