Who just crawled out of a hole? C'est moi!
LOL. Just in case you're wondering I didn't literally just crawl out of a hole but that's how I feel. I feel like someone who's been in kirikiri for the last 20 years and then is released to see things like the internet and Twitter and Instagram and Touchscreen phones.
You know you're getting older when reading blogs and other social networks becomes such a huge chore and you're relieved not to have to do it. *Phew*. Unfortunately I was pulled out of my Utopia when the mails got more than I could bear. BTW thanks to everyone that sent messages, I've been fine, I just took some time off to focus on other stuff.
So many things have happened in the media in the last few days, but one of the things that caught my attention was the love-struck young man that proposed to his babe who he met on twitter, on twitter. Azzzzzin, it was cute and romantic and all that, but as I kept reading the tweets I sort of felt like I was reading letters of an over-excited puppy who can write. Well I've heard love is intoxicating, so it makes sense; those tweets were just too many biko!. I mean, I love to read but even I couldn't read all that. At a point, I gave up! But not before I picked out certain salient points:
Oh Ye Gold-diggers, stop looking for ready-made men in Range Rovers. Jumping buses and keke napep gets you the ring.
Ok...moving on. Oh, not just yet. Many are those women who jumped buses and keke and okada, those who even carried him on their backs... But the minute he bought his first bicycle he forgot their names, numbers and addresses..... Yeah, life sucks, right? LOL.
And then most recently, the clip of the Arik Air flight from Lagos to New York. Lord have Mercy! I felt like breaking the windows on that plane and letting the air in. And were they airborne? I was confused about that part otherwise why didn't they just let them out? Did you guys see my crush? The one who's bald head I live to kiss aka Banky W? Lord, I didn't know I was crushing on him till this early early morning. Actually I knew, but I didn't know it was this bad.
The week was crazy. Yesterday was even crazier. But I won't bore you with the details. The only noteworthy thing about yesterday? Guess what. So the guy I told you guys about, the one I met at the 24hr store; the 'Nwando-Oando' debacle finally contacted me... Somehow he stumbled upon the blog and read the post about him. When I read his text it got me feeling some kinda' way... I didn't expect to hear from him again, didn't think he would find my blog or read the post. Well, he explained that things weren't the way I thought them to be. He subsequently called and we spoke and made plans for either dinner or drinks today.
After mass this morning I had brunch with *Temi and her boo, with whom I had a very interesting conversation (topic for another day), then I went on home. At about 4pm, *Steve from the store called and said he wasn't feeling too well and we had to reschedule. I'd envisioned this happening so before he called I'd already gone online to check what was showing at the Movies. I found a couple of things I wanted to watch and began to make plans. M then called and said to meet him up at Ebar where he was playing Snooker. So I decided I'd go pick Temi up, take her to Ebar with me, do drinks and have a meal, then head for The Palms for our movie, where *Micheal said we would hook up. The night ahead looked promising. I rushed to Temi's crib but she was yet to have a bath. It wasn't 5pm yet so I waited patiently on her bed and tried to catch up with the world on my tablet and the next thing I knew I opened my eyes and it was dark. My people it was 9pm!!!
So that's how my day just went o!. For some reason Temi did not wake me up, she said she wanted to but then I snored (*covers face*) so she knew I was tired and she decided to leave me to rest. Actually I did need that sleep. The last few days have not been particularly easy on me.
Of course I had several missed calls and I was quite upset but... there are far worse things in life. (After all, that same time the previous night, I was crying over the death of a very well-loved family friend and questioning the meaning of life. So.....).
Anyways my lovelies, I missed you guys and I'm glad to be back. Just touching base and trying to reorient myself with the internet and the world at large. (I exaggerate.).
