Fireproof

Playing with fire, knowing you run the risk of being burnt, yet the lure of walking through flames untouched seduces the "wild child" in you ;-)

The Maestro

This week, I’ve spent the drive home, re-connecting with Kojo Antwi. Many road users have gawked at my dancing behind the wheel and I have laughed myself silly at their facial expressions. My selection of his old and new tunes is such a wicked mix, I should consider being a DJ if I dare say lol. How I managed to miss the true meaning behind “ b) me nkomede” until now baffles me. I thought I've always had a dirty mind loool. Next project Daddy Lumba, eeii sorry ooo… DL

Cycle

I've hurt you in a million ways, like a double edge sword, I've cut you in both directions, i don't know why, or perhaps i do, we just happen to find ourselves in the right place at the wrong time.

Tetteh Mami

I had been craving red-red (beans & fried plantain) since yesterday. The low rumbles in my stomach, reminded me just how much. So on the drive to work I played with the idea of making some over the weekend, when I found myself a few meters from my primary school. The memories of Tetteh Mami's beans turned my rumbles to roars, and on instinct, I found myself at her base grabbing "brunch” lol. I have savored every morsel and enjoyed each slice of the soft fried plantain, forgetting that I’m attending a meeting with my boss this morning, HOLY SIPRIT, I come against any atomic bombs as a result of this concoction, and to my village witches who will attempt to follow me with a ceiling fun, fire burn you, AMEN!

Blue days

The mornings when the tightening comes back, and you question if indeed the mind is as powerful as they say, you curse the songs that unmask painted feelings and wait for the sadness to pass.

Morning dose

I have fallen into a morning routine getting ready for work. I listen to Okay FM, with my old man, there's something about the news in 'Twi’ we both seem to enjoy so much, the embellishments are off the chain. But what i have come to love most, is my alone time on the drive to work. For that twenty minutes of ‘ loud & life’, Vision turns my traffic into a traffic jam, and in that space and time, i have not a care in the world. Big ups to all you guys, doing the Monday to Friday 9 to 5, 24/7, 365 days, and that's just regular time. Honestly I don't know how you keep it up, I 'm exhausted already...

Too much Tv?

Yes i know, it's been over seven hundred years since i last blogged, and unfortunately i have no excuse :-(, but this i have to blog about. Friday, African Reagent; after work hours, i was 'chillaxing' by the poolside socking in tunes from the band and gossiping away. A few meters ahead was a group of four; three ladies and a gentleman, just by looking at them, anyone could pick out which pairing were the lovebirds. The gentleman excuses himself, and comes back with a bouquet of red and white roses_ yes i noticed him; he was tall, dark and handsome lol, and just like in the movies, he on BOTH knees flower in one hand and the ring in the other, a waiter with what i assumed to be a bottle of champagne came out of nowhere. Then band on queue, switched from old highlife tunes, to rhythms and blues professing eternal love and devotion. Where was the camera crew, is this really happening? She must have said YES, because the next minute they were hugging and licking their faces, and there we were clapping and squealing "yay..." When did Ghanaian men get so romantic, or they are watching too much tv?

A for Effort

The making up process can be a magical time, when you've be wronged and being appeased. It's almost like the sweeping you off your feet era, where your every wish, is his command_ you say jump, and he'll ask " how high" Girlfriend is getting her wish list satisfied, i'm a lil envious :-(

Tall or Short?

Most women will describe their ideal man with the usual "TDH"; Tall Dark and Handsome. With that combination, a girl can't go wrong :-) Personally as far as height goes, either you are taller or we are equal. My mum mentioned when she first met, the old boy, she thought he was incredibly tall, but it turns out he's 5ft8, just an inch or so taller than her. Apparently he deceived her with his platform heels lol _ she should have been more observant, No? How important, is hieght to you?

Sleepless

My eyes are shut, i long for the sand master to sprinkle his magical dust and take me away. That i may drift in peaceful wonder over the milky way sky, but the chaos in my heart won't let me rest.

Black or White

A friend once told me, it's either BLACK or WHITE, and that gray was just a bi-product. It's either yes or no, the word maybe, is just an escape route for toying with peoples's feelings I'm still walking the fine line, as to my take on the theory, some days i think he's right. We all know the yes and no answers to the questions that linger on our minds, we say we are undecided, but deep down we know. Perhaps, it's the feeling of being unsure, that holds our tongue and puts us on the fence, or maybe it's because life is way too complicated, that your answer can neither be YES or NO, black or white.

The wait

I must confess, i feel like the worst mother in the world right now, i've abandoned my baby for too long. I would like to pin it on school and exams, but that will be shifting blame. The simple fact is; i've lost my mojo :-( There's so much going on in my life and around me to blog about, but somehow everything feels like it's on pause, someone pulled the rug under my feet, getting up is proving a tad tricky. Nevertheless, i've cooked up a plan, or should say, i'm cooking up a plan lol, OPERATION DO OR DIE, after all_ ALL DIE BE DIE, so watch this space :-)

??...

I think I've lost my edge, or simply preoccupied with myself, exams is fast approaching and i have that and a gazillion other things on my mind.

Break a leg

My right leg is stuck in a cast, I thought it was a simple sprain, until the x-ray showed a small fracture in my ankle.

6 weeks looks like a life time, the crutches makes that reality even worse. Yes, I've cried my eyes out, and shockingly gone down the superstitious road, blaming the witches in my village_ they must have caused the fall :D

The gloomy feeling, is lifting_ hell it could have been worse.
Comparatively, everything that use to be so big, seems so small_or that's just my mind in an escape mode.

I'm on countdown, come Monday; 5 weeks.

I know u're listening

Father Lord please let this be a dream. Let me wake up from this nightmare and be free of this horror. Take this wheel from my hand.

I'm crumbling under this load, I'm afraid.

Please let there be light at the end of this tunnel.

happily ever after

Sue me, I'm in my twenties and I still love cartoons. Colourful animation lost in the mist of singing and dancing and magic tug at my heart strings.

An imaginary world, where the guy gets the girl at all cost. The witch is vanquished, and wicked stepmother is exposed for her treachery and love conquers the day.

Oh how I wish I was a blue-eyed blondie, with a godmother who could turn pumpkin into a range rover evoque :D

This reality is so much harder, way too complicated, where is fairy when you need one!

Scheming & plotting

You know how you cook up a plan, and play the scenes in your head of how you think or want it to go down. You recite the conversational lines, and hope with all your might that it follows through.

Well unfortunately, the harsh reality is that, it never checks out, ever.
99.9 % of the time, it backfires. People are who they are and react the way they are susceptible to, even if you play all 3 genie cards, wishing for whatever.

Wishes are not horses.

Miss lolo

I’ll admit it, I’m still dreaming about bulging boobies, size triple D lol. Sadly it ain't gonna happen, unless of course you all will contribute to buying me some, I hear it’s cheaper in Brazil_ find the account number below ;-)

I’m I insecure about my palm fitting ones? _ Duh!... So you see, the last compliment I was and will ever expect to hear, is anything far from these tennis balls, I’m not being vain, but tell me I have a great body, and that will make a whole lot of sense to me_ cos i do :-)


So naturally my first reaction_ you must be kidding me right, I’m i on candid camera?
No i'm not, my friends think I’m strange too, but I just prefer them small,i work better with it

Unless he was pulling a fast one on me, i almost blurted_"where have you been all my life"

Indecision

Many people get cold feet whenever the seriousness or complexity of an impending personal decision looms.

Getting cold feet could be a case of nerves to committing to an event, or simply the minds way of breaking out of a deal.

There are a number of phases in life which call for definite decisions, leaving very little room for hesitations.
Ergo the mental pressure
__am I making the RIGHT move?

Some say that when you know, you just KNOW.

So if I may ask, is there no room for questions, or doubts at all, no second-guessing?

Must apprehension be completely banished?

Too much?

A friend bitterly complained to me, how she had become invisible to her man_" Naa, he sees me , but he doesn't look at me, not anymore". What she needed was a listening ear,so I let her vent, and wondered to myself; are we asking for too much?

Clearly all she wants is some attention.

Women=Attention
Yes attention, attention, and some more attention.

It is like telling your wife _'I love you'. True if you didn't love her you wouldn't have married her, but she still needs to hear you say it, again and again. She'll never get tired of hearing it, because each time it reassures her of your love.

It's an open secret, happy woman = happy man, you best believe it lol :-)

Blank!

When you don't have the rights words to say, what do you say?
Do you say nothing, when the situation requires you to say something
When words escape you and you can't string up any logical sentence
Expectant eyes searching your face,ears eager to listen

What do you do?

One of Two

A little bird told me, that we each get a shot at true love twice, and no matter the number of times or people we fall for, our chance of meeting that one person, you truly connect with happens twice in a life time.

Two? Really!... That's a pretty low number lol... :D

Red Alert!

For days, hungry eyes over there looks at me like I'm the special fried rice on the Chinese menu.
He has no qualms about hiding it, he catches my eye each time ,and with a wolf like glint gives me a once over a smirk a corner away.
As though the calculated act wasn't unsettling enough, he rubs his palms all the while holding that stupid smug.
My back to him now, I still feel his stare tearing through my flesh.

Somewhere in my mind, I'm haunted by Red Ridding Hood's voice, "grandma, grandma such huge teeth you have"

"All the better to eat you my dear"

Rediscovery

I'm on a journey to find myself, to re-live the first of things that gave me butterflies. Of moments that stirred my heart, of places that fill my mind with memories, of kisses soft and sweet, to find myself in place I call home, a place in your heart, a place where I belong.

I'm on a journey of rediscovery, to find you and I.
