Tell Me Something... Your #CurrentSituation In Seven Days!

Good evening errbody!

So, I was away for most of the day and I did something I haven't done in ages... I read a novel! Or I should say I'm reading one. You have no idea how much I've missed this. Between having a busier life and trying to put up posts on the blog I've had no time to read a novel in almost two years. I've barely gone halfway and my vocabulary already feels richer. 

I'm reading a book which I'm sure a lot of you have read; Americanah. I've had it for months but I was only able to get started today. For those who have read the book what's your take on it, and what do you feel about the protagonist, Ifemelu?

Can I be honest? I admire Ifemelu but I can't say I actually like her person, she strikes me as someone I wouldn't be friends with in real life. But hey, I've still got a long way to go before I'm done. Yeah, I also feel like there's a lot of Chimamanda in Ifemelu... 

Ok, moving on to other things, and by other things I mean something random *covers face* (yes it's one of those days that I'm neither very inspired nor inspiring YET I itch to hear from you...) and I'm really curious to hear what you'll say. So tell me something, anything at all. Tell me how life is treating you, tell me how you wish things could be, tell me about your day. But most importantly, tell me what you think you'll be doing this time next week. Guys, you have to SPILL!

It's about 10pm, the night of Valentine... What do you have planned for that day and what do you imagine you would be doing by now? Snuggled in bed or out having dinner with le boo, drinks with your goons, or.... alone in bed wondering why you're (still) single? LOL. 

Ok, I'll go first. I have absolutely NOTHING planned for next week. My boyfriend is/was meant to come into town and I'd just planned to make a nice pot of very sexy onugbu soup, replete with snails, chicken, cow leg and stock fish. Then I was thinking afterwards we'd drive round and see where the roads lead, but definitely make a stop at Cold Stone. He has his reservations about ice cream but I'm sure he would like something at Cold Stone. 

But (my) life is filled with so many uncertainties... 

But enough about me, what's your February 14th looking like? Come this time next week, what do you imagine to be your #CurrentSituation? Talk to me. 


  1. I will be on call at the hospital, hoping it will be a quiet day!! No accidents or emergency surgeries because I need to get caught up on my studying. No love for your girl as the hubster is far way in Nigeria.

    1. are you a nurse nubian princess?

    2. No dear. I am a medical student! Went back to school, changing my career compete turn around to follow my childhood dream which was truncated by corrupt JAMB officials o. Many years of marriage and 3 kids later!

    3. I admire your courage (for lack of a better word) Nubian Princess.


  2. I'm feeling happy and joyous for having God's presence in life.

    So I've decided to make and eat my own traditional food and call it a great night

  3. Thelma I'm loving the twists. I'm single so no plans but I am praying for a surprise.

  4. Ifemelu is Chimamanda and I don't like her either. There is something cold and rigid about her.

  5. I'll be in bed all lovey dovey by myself cus ma boo is far away in UK...(sobs)... my phone will definitely keep me busy,updates n d way iam now)... BUT,il definitely get myself a nice cake n bottles of my favorite... ms tee...

  7. Current Situation... i'm very hungry. What I feel like eating is not available and i'll rather go hungry than eat anything else.(thats just me) and i'm broke(not exactly sha) cuz I don't have an atm card and iv not been able to get to the bank so sunshine and Iya kabuoy have been my rock. + i'm bored. Iv been refreshing your page since like 3pm. :D

    Um next week... do some laundry... i'll be on my bed with an e-book(definitely romance) the most part of the day... errr... and sleep very well. that's about it.

    How I feel about someone... my feelings are so jumbled up right now... I can't even decipher what i'm feeling.

    I have not read any Chimamanda book! Even though there are two of her books in this house. I'll probably get around to them one of these days. But iv seen half of a yellow sun... and iv been told the book is way better(of course) so yeah... i'll still read the book. okay... #dahsall

  8. Next week no plans yet cos I don't see it as being special, don't know about anyone else,though my ex boyfriend is asking me to celebrate with him cos that's also his bday,still thinking of the offer, no light,dey just took it actually and the whole house is like an oven and am kinda excited my appointment with my therapist went well,and maybe i have to go off my pills for a while,no one to cuddle with,no BF for now so i might likely accept my ex offer to spend the day with him and I might likely eat out with him n maybe the beach later in the day cos he loves water a lot. I have read three of chimamanda's book and like xx said she is ifemelu cos i have read that book too.

  9. Ifemelu? Lols. I'll give u spoiler. She ended up having an affair with her married childhood boyfriend. What I'm saying is,she knew he was married and still went ahead with it,which in turn made him divorce/ask for one with his current wife. I guess as Selena Gomez sang - The heart wants what it wants...
    Asides the sub-story,its a good book but I prefer Half of a yellow sun.

    Current situation - MVP where V means "very"

    Situation I'd like, however is to have a quiet evening in with my significant other, having good conversation and watching a movie or cooking. Next year, I hope. :)

    Thanks for your posts Thelma, I appreciate your consistency.

    1. You're welcome Anon, thanks for being a part of TTB.

  24. Current situation...
    Always wanted to learn tailoring as most tailors never get what I want right, which has me wishing I could make my trads myself. Finally doing something about it and this time I plan to give it commercial value too. Also getting more active with church as I finally made that step today to get back into the church's workforce after a long time away. Who knows... maybe that'll make for a social life too.
    Valentine's day.... well I've never been big on it anyway, so my current boo-less state is all the more convenient. It's me and my English classics unless le bestie decides to surprise me with that drinks at that Spanish lounge after all.

  25. #current situation, I'm a very confused person at the moment. God please come to my aid before I loose it. No plans for val. Just my son n i

  26. I had grand plans for 14th, but. I was dealt a big blow, all plans currently cancelled , while I recover.

    1. I wish you a quick one dear.


  27. I had grand plans for 14th, but. I was dealt a big blow, all plans currently cancelled , while I recover.

  28. Current situation... just washed my hair, waiting for my hair dresser to call... Kabouy is in the kitchen and I'm hoping the food will come before the call *shines teeth*

    Vals day plans? Err.. i haven't thought that far. Feb 14th has never been special to me so i'll probably sleep till like 8am and lounge the rest of the day... me, my bed and my novel(s)

  29. Current situation - bored

    Plans for the week was disrupted due to the elections being postponed. Still not sure but i might be spending val at home.

  30. This comment has been removed by the author.

  31. Can't say for current situation cause my response is late from the date of the post.

    Next weekend plan you ask? None, was planning to hide behind election so it doesn't show my single status but since election has been cancelled, am vegetating on my couch for Saturday and having brunch on Sunday with a friend.

  32. Thelma you are pretty and ypur hair is lovely!

  33. It's been a while I read a novel. I bought half of a yellow sun since last September and I have not gone half way.I really wish some of the igbo words used in the novel were translated in English (perhaps a glossary at the end) and after seeing the movie, I lost all interest in reading it further.

    Valentine? I've never taken it seriously even during my teenage and twenties and I am not going to change anything now.



  34. This is a testimony that i will tell to every one to hear. i have been married for three years and on the fifth years of my marriage, another woman had a spell to take my lover away from me and my husband left me and the kids and we have suffered for 3years until i met Dr. Ogboni of REUNITING EX SPELL TEMPLE where so many people have been helped and i decided to give him a try to help me bring my lover back home and believe me i just send my picture to him and that of my husband and after 5hours as

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
