Sex and the woman; Of the Nigerian Hypocritical Attitude!!!!!!!


So from the title of this post, you can guess that I am a bit miffed. If you didn't know it already, you do now. However, am generally in a fantastic mood so am not about to go all beserk or anything like it (I solemnly swear that am up to some good).

Dear Diary 2: Emem's Entry


I have this big, goofy grin on my face and I don't know why. Or I know and am hugging it to myself for a little bit longer. It's a very pleasant feeling, this warmth and glow I feel in my lower belle: are these‎ the proverbial butterflies???

KopCorner Feature: Suarez, Brendan Rodgers, and LFC this season

Fellow reds,

This is an entree from one of us. He writes rather brilliantly and I just had to share this here. Enjoy mates!

Like every LFC fan last season, we were all gobsmacked and often times our jaws were decisively earthbound with the way Liverpool played football. The neutrals adored, our rivals could only shudder and remain apprehensive about their date with the ‘grim reaper’.
An amazing 5-1 win against Arsenal and putting 9 goals past Spurs home and away didn’t get us new friends in North London. Our neighbours across Stanley Park at Goodison weren’t spared either. We simply wreaked havoc across the country. LFC made the fans dream once again and was it not for the unfortunate slip by Stevie we would have lifted the title. We lost the league but won many hearts. All these mesmerizing moments were greatly afforded by the genius of one man – Luis Suarez. He scored 31 goals out of a total 101 and boy they were wonderful goals. If you love stats as I do Suarez scored 30.7% of our goals!

‎KopCorner: And The New Season is almost Here!!!!!

My red family, hello again. 

It's been a summer filled with activity, what with the World Cup, transfer activity and of course the pre-season and ICC participation. But it still didn't quite make up for the loss of EPL and oh yes, CL action with our dearly beloved Liverpool FC in action.

What a season 2013/2014 turned out to be. We #DaredToDream. #WeGoAgain became the mantra, especially with our last run of 14 games. It was quite exhilarating to watch Liverpool come from nowhere (in the opinion of the opposition) and challenge for the Barclays Premier League title. Suarez was a beast at goal, Sturridge a close second. And the rest of the team were phenomenal. Inspite of our defensive mishaps, we came second. As opposed to the season before that when we were 7th. Plus, Champions League nights at Anfield for the coming season became a surety. It was particularly joyful for me to see the Mancs go down to our former position.

Freaky Friday: Salt and Water blues!!!!

A fab, fantastic Friday‎ to you and you and me.
However, there are some freaky things going on worldwide. I mean, I went to bed on Thursday and before I woke up, Hamas had broken the ceasefire and fired some rockets Israel's way: then a new, dramatic 'all in one' cure for the ebola virus that is now threatening us in Naija had been discovered: SALT and WATER to bathe with before 6am. Talk about a Freaky Friday!!!!

When "Bad" is "Good" for you!!!

Beautiful/handsome reader, I declare today a "Trouble/Turbulence-free Thursday" for us all. Yes, it's raining again: but that could also be a way of staying "out" of trouble. No? (Huge Grin)

Now, this title may seem contentious:‎ but when we stop and think about it, we have all been there. Now, I see and hear all your minds  working overtime and I'm going to ask you to get your mind out of the sexual innuendo gutters alright; jeez, is that all you guys think about? Pardon me, I digress.

The Diamond Woman Initiative from Diamond Bank Nigeria PLC has an interesting poll for the ladies.
It's no secret that some of us ladies are all about their Gucci, Ferragamo, Luis Vuitton, D&G and the likes. While there are some who are not so particular and can carry anything that looks good on them.
