The Best Man Holiday (it's got me in a zone......)




Yes, yes I know I'm stale. You don't have to say it. I'm even surprised it's still showing at the cinemas. I've been tempted to see it since it was released. I go to the movies every week but I seem to be cursed with ridin' solo when it comes to going to the movies. But I've been determined (under advisement from a friend) not to go see that movie alone, so I've stayed away. Finally, my darling friend and I went tonight and I just have to say, it's an AWESOME movie.
The themes are so beautiful but unlike so many, I don't think the most important themes were love and marriage, I think it was friendship.

       There's nothing like having friends who have been there over the years, who have stuck with you, seen you slip, seen you grow, laughed with you, cried with you, cursed with you, ate with you, fed
you. Trust me, there's absolutely nothing like it. 

       This isn't for those who say "I don't keep friends" or "I don't have friends" (I always believe that people who say this are not good people because that is just a reflection of who you are. EVERYONE cannot be that bad, YOU have to be so bad that you've pushed EVERYONE away). This is for those who have friends and value friendship. 

        To my friends, I raise a glass to you. I could be difficult, impatient, moody, yet you love me still. I'm sending hugs and a million kisses to my friends from Queen's College and University. And yes, my bestie, you've been my shelter right from when I was thrown out of my dorm in secondary school, you took me in and gave up your bed for me, while sleeping on the ground for weeks, you split your already tiny meals with me in the dining hall, you gave me your "house wear". In university, once again you sheltered me and gave up your bed for me. You've seen me at my worst and my best. You've laughed with me, cried with me, comforted me, pissed me off, upset me, loved me, and I love you too! And to my other besties, I love you guys so much.


Ok, enough of the emotional stuff, I need a man that would love me the way those men in that movie love their women. Damn! That's some hardcore unconditional ride or die unshakable love. Lord have Mercy! In fact I prophesy such love into my life (from the right man). AMEN.

In Other News please where is Mariam? Girly are we fighting? Oya no vex. I miss you. Please come back!

  2. Thelma you are so right. Anyone who keeps talking about "no friendship" needs soul searching. It makes you inhuman. Think about it. I lost my bestie last month. A true hommie from childhood. His Soul Rest in Peace.

  3. Thelma, u can never tell...... about having friends, I mean. Some 'friends' have 'shown' some people. Maybe u should do something on that. :) Yes, I used to have a bestie who was my sister and only sibling until she passed away 2 yrs ago. She justified the word - bestie! Always 'there' 24/7. God bless her soul. I guess to be a bestie, u should share history together. I'm hoping I'll find one, regardless of that. To my wonderful friends, its such a great priviledge to share my world with u(even though sometimes we're really busy in it). I'm grateful to God for u. *kisses* #Enjay#

    1. Enjay I know exactly what you mean. That's why it's important to surround oneself with friends and not "friends". By the way have I said thanks for your comments? Thanks dearie, there's always something to real about them.

  6. Thelma you don put me for reflective mode this morning. I've had friends and I have friends. I have those who would immediately say, ''how are we going to do it?''already making me feel like they are part of the problem and that I'm not alone.Then again, there are those who would say ''nawa for you o, God will see you through''. I know my true friends and I love them. God bless my girls and you Thelma. :)

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
