I Rant. TTB Picnic. BBM Channel.

My rant has got to be about Nigeria and Nigerians. Don't get me started on the many things wrong with this country, one major one has got to be our pathetic maintainance culture. I'll narrow it down to what happened on Monday. Monday was a public holiday, so naturally organizations weren't open for work. I'd just gotten this job and needed to register a business ASAP. So I remember, oooooh CAC has this portal where you can conduct name searches and register companies online. I'd heard about it a while ago but I never bothered to try it (tbh I just didn't believe it would work). And boy was I right? Hopeless! Hopeless something. What particularly gets my goat is that such a busy and lucrative federal organization like CAC cannot keep a website functioning. Arrrghhhh!

The next morning I call this lawyer who helps me with things at CAC, he's not a staff but handles a lot of work there. He might cost a bit but putting other factors into consideration, the extra cost was worth it. So I call and say hey, please conduct a search for these names for me. And please start work on it ASAP, I've a job to do and the clients need my business name, I would also need to make letter heads ASAP with the name, so please give this priority. He says ok. 

Then he calls me two hours later and tells me the second name was approved and I can come get the print out the next day. Wait, that was wayyyy to fast, but they say when something good happens don't question it, right? Errr, maybe not. 

The clients call and order a meeting later that day, I was ready! The last thing I needed was that name and my guy had informed me that it had been approved. At the meeting they asked for my company's name and I gave it to them. The next day I'm off the bed running, needed to get to CAC to grab my name and get that business registered stat! Then I call this guy and ask if he's ready with my print out and he says Errr, errrrm, emmmm, let me call you back. I waited for that call the whole day. The next day he sends me a text and says "I'm sorry, the names were not approved. I thought they would approve the second one". 

He THOUGHT? HE THOUGHT????? When did mere individuals start to think for CAC? Oh Lord, I could have burst into in flames. I just calmly replied saying no worries. 
      So wait, I told this negro everything at stake and he just flippantly told me that CAC had approved a name just because he "thought"? And then I'd gone ahead and submitted this came to the clients, and already paid for the letter heads with said name... It's infuriating but that's life... Speaking of CAC, I'll be doing a lot of company and business registrations in the next two months so hola at me if you need help with company registrations, either for businesses or limited liability companies. 

On a happy note, I'd afore now run away from registering NGOs because of the excess wahala, but I'm currently working on a few and can help you out with yours too. 

Now, that said, I just opened a BBM channel for the blog where we can all chitchat, discuss, share ideas and get to know each other. UPDATE If you're interested, join the channel here; C0024709F. Initially I made it private, by mistake, so I had to delete that and open another. 

Lastly, I've been planning to visit Lekki Conservation Centre for a while now and it occured to me that we could go as a group. I went there to make some enquiries and they told me that we could have a picnic, bring our food, drinks et al and have our own little sit out. Also, we would explore the the conservation centre and be a part of nature. They said it costs 25k for a group of 30. So if we're actually going to be thirty that's less than 1k per person. But individuals can come on their own and pay too. It's 1k per person, so I'm thinking if we're very few then we might consider the individual payment. 

I'm considering next Saturday the 1st of August, but that's not conclusive yet. So let me know if you would be interested, so that I know what I'm working with. Uyi Omoruyi it's not optional for you, you are our In-house photog! 

Also, it would be a lot nicer if everyone coming can bring something along to share. Let me know what you think. 

For those who don't know, Lekki Conservation Centre is just before the second tollgate, adjacent to Chevron. 

A few pics from this afternoon when I stopped to enquire.

    Pray, hold me excused, I cannot come.

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.
