Whoop Whoop! Chimamanda Adichie Is Pregnant!!!

Is it ok to be so excited that someone you don't know personally is carrying a baby?
When I saw the post on Bella Naija I actually threw my fist in the air, in victory. Like I'm the one who made it happen. LOL.

According to BN, The author has been spotted around Lagos with her ‘baby bump’, (she was recently in town for the Farafina workshop). Attendees report seeing the award winning novelist with tell-tale signs of pregnancy.

Congratulations to Chimamanda and her husband Dr. Ivara Esegee!


  1. Hian! So world pple dey celebrate "getting belle" now again? Shiorr. It's not like she's been trying 2 concieve for ages fa!

    Issokay. Congra without d T

    1. Eesah yyy the beef now,lol. Congrats to her,never knew she was even married.

    2. Ewoooo. Errands In Lagos my excitement isn't because she's been trying (I actually have no idea how long Chimamanda has been married), I'm simply excitedly. I feel that way about almost everybody's first pregnancy.

    3. Lmao @ Eesah. So world people shouldn't celebrate "getting belle" again okwa ya? So if your wife says "Honey, guess what...I'm PREGNANT!", na #yimu you go give am?

    4. LMAO @ "na #yimu you go give am"

      Plus, why do y'all think that Eesah? That's a girl na and the name says "Errands in Lagos". Maybel & Memphis, una need glasses.

    5. lol. I had 2 go check eesah's profile & discovered he changed blog id. Eesah y na, dat name sounds 2 girly 4 u.loool

    6. Hhhhhahaha sunshine it's eesah, am sure of what am saying now. Lol.

    7. Ok u just wanted to tell everyone you knew abi? Correct...

    8. Uyi na ur mouth,talk wetin u like.

  2. Perhaps she deliberately didn't get pregnant all this while. Regardless, congrats to her and hubby.


  3. When I read about Stephanie Linus I literary shouted "Yes!!!". To be happy/excited for someone for something good that happened to him/her can never be a bad thing. So it's ok T. J

  4. Wow i was also happy when I read the story. Nope nothing wrong for being happy for who you don't know and has never met.

  5. All I see is her fine hubby. *dodging bullets*

  6. I think the excitement is because Chimamanda, the feminist, almost seemed like she expected the man to- because of shared equality and responsibility- carry the baby so hearing she is pregnant just reminds us that, underneath all that intellectual gra-gra is a woman who can't help but be a woman.
    At least that's how it seems to me, lol.

    1. Please try, take some time and understand what feminism is really about. Thanks

    2. Wow, Feminism is not so ambiguous now, it's not further maths. Women are women's greatest problem. J

    3. Oh huns, no need to be salty, that was supposed to be funny, lol.
      I love Chimamanda to the moon and back and think her absolutely amazing so please, reign in the snarkiness.

    4. Looool @ Diary of dildo.
      The same thing my guys at work said. "Hey! Kabuoy! Your mentor don carry belle! Why her husband noh help her carry am?" looool. The sacarsm was on another level! Shuooo! See beef! Looool. They even went as far as showing me a pregnant man on the Internet. I had to point it out to them that the man is transgender. Hehehe! .. they quieted down a bit... then went "eeeeeehn he is sha a man" loool!

      As if that's the whole point of feminism. Like I had to google feminism for them. Heheheheee! But they always miss the point as usual!

    5. I actually got the joke... And i laughed, Lol! Although its real yet funny as well.

    6. Kabuoy! Dildo kwa? Hahaha!
      Thanks for backing me up guys @ Kabuoy and Uyi.
      Sometimes people misunderstand humour but that's ok, :) ;)
      Or maybe my sense of humour is a little rustic and needs some brushing up, who knows?
      *scratching head*

    7. Buhahahahahahahahahahaha!!! *faints*

      I apologize Diary of DIDO! I honestly from the bottom of my heart apologize! Lmaooooo! Can't stop laughing! Where did that come from?! Lmaoooooo!!!! Blame it on auto-correct!!!

  7. Lol...I can imagine how you must have felt.

    Felt the same way with Stephanie also. And not just In the case of pregnancies but when someone coming from the bottom eventually becomes big and continues to remain so through hard work and perseverance.....that feeling!

    Congrats to her and I wish her and steph safe delivery.

  8. Congratulations Chim. Pregnancy wows me. Enjoy

  9. Great news for her, and best wishes to the couple.

  10. Congratulobia. Just love love the babe. Wish I could speak and write so effortlessly like her.

  11. Congrats to her! Happy for she and Stephanie

  12. Congrats to her ... Am happy for must not know someone one on one before you congratulate or be happy for them.....onuru ube nwa......Amala ndi igbo.....ehe nwa m odiri GI nma o diri la m nma ebe nnuru ube nwa..

    1. Nne this your Igbo is hard to understand o..... Biko ko wa ya!

Let's face it - even the most astute, successful person will suffer setbacks, and surviving and overcoming those setbacks is the true measure of a leader.

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…
