Mainland Book Cafe and Me!!!


So the 27th of September, 2015, came around soon enough. I had just spent the 1st week of a grueling 11 in Lagos and was going for my first social event, a meet up with the members of the Mainland Book Cafe. You could have called me a fringe member, since I was told about it by the one and only modern day Ojuju, Beeordun . I had even given them a blog post, so I felt like I was not too much of an outsider (in my mind). More importantly, I was going to see the popular "Bar Enclave" and it's twitter renowned TURKEY. So yeah, I was excited.

#ShortStuff is now a man o......

When am asked how old he is, I usually say 4 going to 45... Folks think it's me being cheeky. But the following 3 way conversation between Chu, his grandma and me will give some insight into our "unique age".


 
4, going on 45....

Dear Diary 3; Bimbo's Reality.....

"Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If he's always busy,
The side chic is YOU..."

Mogbe. I nearly died with laughter upon seeing the meme with those words. Ordinarily, it should speak to me, but that would be speaking to a girl who didn't know she's a side chic; wouldn't it? Me, I know my own brand of vice; I'm well aware of my poison.

Do women truly hate each other?

                 


Anybody remember this video? It was a favorite while I was growing up at the time; with most of us in my age grade choosing sides; Brandy vs Monica... that sort of thing. But the most astounding thing for me (then and now) was how they came together in the end to put Mr. Player in his place. 

There has to be a reason why that memory particularly stood out for me. Most likely, it is because I had on some level started expecting two women to always be in opposition to one another. (Pray, who was teaching me these things then? I been small that time na... Okay Ekenedilichukwu, back to regular programming). First of all, go down low welcome to my today. Here's to the prayer that it be your best Thursday yet. Amen.

#TGIF; Of Friday Mayhem on Lagos Roads!!!

*Cues Music* "Thank God its Fridayyyyyyy".....

So R. Kelly's song is playing and you would think it is to set the tone for the proverbial #TGIF;yes? Time to let my hair down and have a semi serious work day. Drinks after 5pm, etc. I wish... It is a day packed full as usual (reports, mails, client resolution activities and visits and the likes). I have to type with one hand and much on my sandwich.....the things I do for you.....

     familiar scene,yes?

Farewell Steven George Gerrard; My Mr. Liverpool.

The D-day is here.

I began writing this post after watching Steven Gerrard's LFCTV interview in January; where he announced that he would be leaving his beloved home team at the end of the season. My emotions got the better of me and I postponed it; thinking it would be easier as it got closer. Here I am; let's just say it's a good thing only my computer screen can see me now.

My reality makes me an authority!!!!!!

   

Yes, everyday people. And no, I am not about to burst into the popular "Arrested Development" song of the same title. This is a rant of very many different subjects that affect us; make that me (since they are mostly my thoughts anyway). Let's begin!

Cleaning out my closet!!!!


Am sorry momma
I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry but tonight
Am cleaning out my closet.....
 Beautiful lyrics from one of my  all time rappers........ But in reality, I should be singing to you, dear space of mine on blogosphere. It has been too long; way too long. You should have seen the time I spent on clearing out the cobwebs from on here. And I have missed your 'never judging', 'always welcoming with wide open arms' presence.

                                  

All the same, I am now done clearing the closet of all its Pandora's secrets. Unto the business of this space. But you have to go the next post first

*Exits stage singing  "Guess who's back, back again. Eky's back, tell a friend"
