I Choose You!

Hey guys, so it's been a hectic day, rushed to the airport almost fighting with the cab driver to 'step on it' and get me to the airport on time, only to get here and find that my flight's been delayed for 2 hours. 
     Anyhoo... My power's about to run out but sitting here in a sea of people got me thinking about something I (weirdly) finding myself thinking about more often than I'd like to admit...

So here it is; If you get stuck on an Island and you have to be there for weeks with just one person, who would it be and why? (Could be a friend, lover, celebrity, family member, colleague etc). Who would this person be and why's this the chosen person?

Now I'll also like to know, it's the same scenerio but if this one person you had to choose was someone on this blog who would the blog reader be, and why?

Lemme answer this first, I've thought about it long and hard. 

If I'm stuck on an island for weeks with just one person, I'd want that person to be Ginika (Oche Eze). 
Why? Because she's the only person I know that knows how to tolerate my mood swings, tantrums, quietness, and even through all this she still somehow makes me laugh. We never run out of stuff to say but when I'm tired of talking she somehow just knows and gives me space. She's quite resourceful 
so I know she'll go hunting and fishing and build a fire so we can survive and at I we can cuddle without any awkwardness (or horniness LOL) to keep each other warm. So I Choose Ginika. 

(And if Gini isn't available or she doesn't want to stay with me then I'll choose Stella Dimoko Korkus. Because... I just sense the weeks would slide by without me even noticing). 

Alone on this island for weeks with only one person and I have to pick this person from this blog.... Hmmm... I choose Steele... Because (although he's been absent from the blog for longer than I care to remember) I just know he'll have my back and put me before himself, plus, he will go hunting and get us plenty bush meat. 

I was going to pick Memphis but I sense he's just as quiet as I am and we will both die of boredom. Haha!

So shoot! Who and who would you choose? Do tell. 


  1. Alicia keys... We go shag so tey the island spirits will call 911 on us.

    1. Hahahahaha.. Amen brother..or..sister? Hmmm..

  2. I'd pick my brother Arinze. He wld literally do everything and prefer I lay in the sun/shade (whichever works for my complexion)

  3. I would pick my sister Isi.. Shes a sister dats always got my back.
    As for a blog reader, I would pick Wale. I'll pick him cus he sounds very rational. He makes constructive statement. And he's got an incisive intelligence that I admire, he's the type that will think us out of a bad situation when it arises.

  4. These right here sounds like Jamb questions...

    Still thinking who dt person might be...

    Dang it! I think I need more friends hahaha

  6. My bestfriend Virginia cos we do the funniest things together :). On the blog? Errrrm, I'm kind of new so I'll let that one slide...

  7. I'll pick my hubby cos he'll do all the work while I rest in the shade besides the mad sex. If he isn't available ill pick my sis Didi cos I know there won't be a dull moment. On this blog ill pick Ruth cos I think she'll be a good companion and she will have my back.

  8. My Friend, Patience. She's the only one I trust more dan anything. (She's married tho, wonder if her husband wud allow). This blog, I'll go with Ruthy. Don't ask y plz.

  9. I would pick my best friend Stephanie cos she would surely have my back and proffer solution and as for the blog,hmmmmmmmmm I would pick Mr wale because he sounds intelligent, skillful, and is quick to reason.

  10. My sister Kathy. We understand ourselves just too well.

    Someone from this blog...the selection is not easy, lol. I'll pick Kabuoy. Just as Thelma has noticed (how on earth did you figure that out T?) I'm a major introvert, but I love being in the company of lively people, so I won't die of boredom.

  15. Tough one but I will go with my brother, he is the first of the three people I call friends.
    Pretty difficult to pick from the blog, the uniqueness of each person has endeared me to many people here.

    1. Wale the diplomat lol. I expected that. I would pick my best friend Ema. She's a rock and even though we haven't seen each other in years as we live on different continents, we have this knack of picking up where we left off and its like we were never apart. On the blog, I would pick Wale Walata!! He's resourceful, mature and I value his balanced opinion and objectivity. To be honest, when I first stumbled on this blog and read all old posts including comments lol, I was going through a sticky situation. I reached out to Thelma and specifically asked her to seek out Wale's opinion on my behalf. His and her advice were helpful. Thanks again guys. You rock!! Have never met you Wale, but you remind me so much of my husband.

    2. See why I would pick you.....

  19. I'd pick my boss, she would give me so much work to do that i wouldnt even remember that i was stuck on an island. Forget internet, she's a work creator, she creates work even where theres none. By the time they come to rescue us, i'd probably have died from the work anyway.

    This blog.......hmmmmmm tough one, maybe Ruthy, cuz i know whatever the case, i'll be leaving that island a better, stable and more rounded individual. Ruthy seems really stable and grounded.

  20. I choose my mom!..she ll take watever island challenge as nothing, tak k of me n most importantly, make me laf real hard.

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…
