Guess Who Just Jumped Out Of A Hole?!!

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.).

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
