Shhhhhhh! Shut The F.........

So I crawled out of my hole to rant. 

Before I begin this rant I guess an apology is in order. Yes, posts have been very erratic but I assure you that it's due to reasons beyond my control. I've tried and tried to post more regularly but the fates aren't in line with those plans at the moment. I left Lagos Wednesday evening and since then it's been one thing after the other. A whirlwind! I've barely had shut eye for three consecutive hours and half the time I'm spaced out. I'm trying to sort this out, I get a bit uncomfortable when I get calls asking what's wrong or if I'm ok, because nothing is wrong, and I'm better than ok. It's just that the reins these few days elude me. Please, I'll be back on course as soon as possible. 

Yeah, now on to my rant. You've got pet peeves, yeah? Well I've always known I have a number of those but the most recent and most agitating is people who constantly offer unsolicited opinions. I met one of such people recently. 

I guess this is even on a different level because said person seems to think that they know my life based on what I write, and thinks that since I've made my (supposed) life blog fodder, she's entitled to dissect it in whichever way she likes and offer opinions on things, everything! Worse yet, give advice that's neither solicited nor welcome. Eishhhh! JUST STOP OKAYYYYY! I know that opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. Still it would do you and I a great favour if you don't air each and every one of them.

That kinda felt good. 

Now since I'm already on the rant-pet peeve path I might as well tell you my other pet peeves. 

-people who drive slowly and leisurely but the minute you "trafficate" to join their lane, immediately pick up speed and stop you from getting in front of them. Wicked pipu!
-those people who keep you waiting and tell you I'm on my way, I'm almost there! when they're yet to even take a bath. Seriously, you're the worst!
Lastly- Girls who deliberately sound dumb and clueless around guys because they think it's cute. Stop it. JUST STOP! There's nothing cute about it, it just makes you look.... well, dumb and clueless! 

LOL. There you have it, my rant and pet peeves all in one. And I feel a lot better after writing this. Try it, you will too! Feel free to rant about whatever, but first, share your pet peeves with me!

Or just tell me what you've been up to. I miss you guys, I've missed my blog and my blog readers, and my life feels quite incomplete without you. I can't wait to be done with this phase!


  1. Mine is people who defend the indefensible (politically) #YouKnowUrself...!!!

    1. Lmaooo! Uyi... Other culprits! Oya come and mark attendance under this comment!

    2. Kabuoy you are looking for my trouble.

      So I defend the 'indefensible'? I definitely don't think Sasha bone is referring to me.

  2. Deliberately sounding dumb and clueless and think it's cute? Nba, I never hear that one.
    I guess we all have that one person who always has an opinion about everything.
    My Rant.
    Plans/Preparations for my wedding are on-going at the moment. I have a BBM group for my bridesmaids and my MoH is suddenly becoming annoying. She tries to impose her ideas on everyone in the group calls me for support to declare her preference on the other ladies. Last one she did was to call me to insist of a particular hairstyle, I told her that we will discuss it in the group and decide. Unfortunately, my BIS went off just after she ended the call. By evening when I subscribed, I found her messages in the group, telling the girls I also said certain things and all sorts, persuading them to let it go and just do it for me.
    I chose her to be my MoH because of her stature and she knows it.
    Plus, I've been dealing with very poor customer relationship from every quarter. My dressmakers particularly.

    1. Eniola...words of comfort - 1 bridesmaid or 10, you will still be married. Put your foot down on what you want within reason...whoever cannot comply give them IV to show up as guests. Do not stress yourself planning a wedding, you have the adjustment phase of marriage to your energy for that.

  3. I feel u on that traffic one.. I can't stand people with long throat..and people who make u feel like cutting off someone that misyanned about you is being childish .. Like wtf will I still be friends with someone that clearly has evil intentions 2 wards me??.. #okbye

  4. Sound dumb to look cute? Haha! That's one new kind of silly please.

    Nothing to rant about.

    1. It's called dumbing one's self down. Some men are apparently intimidated by an intelligent woman...

  5. Hi Eniola, first of all...*big hugs*...I know what you are passing through ..I got married in September and d bridesmaids drama,vendors drama is too real.......some times they think its about them or they know what u want best ........

    That said.......pls dnt lose ur cool, be firm, polite and ensure that everyone understands ur stance on things. You will ruffle one or two feathers but always choose ur battle wisely. Also, make sure u have back-up vendors esp for your hairstylist,makeup person and dress maker- the devil can like to use these vendors to tempt the children of God.!!..

    Be prayerful always..and make a list ...also never overlook the help God wil send ur way from friends or pple u never expected it from.....Thats what God did for
    me.....Lastly,pls dnt fret......enjoy ur day....make sure u enjoy ur day cos it really does go so fast.......


  6. Topmost for Mine now is people who talk too much & dunno when to stop especially on silly gists...

  7. My rant: I see no reason why workers vigil would have to always hold in my pastor's place,it's raining heavily and my whole area is flooded and his own street too is something else, I find it so tiring going for workers vigil when I think of all these, must d vigil b in his house nii biko,when church dey dere. God forgive me cos I wouldn't go. Now my pet peeve, why can't a guy just tel it to a girl's face that all he wants is shag?I hate it when guys deceive themselves thinking it's the girl they are deceiving.

    1. This is typical case of "I can't go and come and kill myself" lolz.

      Please do your vigil @ home o, the complains fit make you no pray well. Hahhaha.

    2. "...God forgive me cos I wouldn't go...". Is it now a sin to (deliberately) miss a vigil? Just curious.

      Lol @"...hate it when guys deceive themselves thinking it's the girl they are deceiving.". Well in most cases the girls see The Red Flags yet readily fly them without being under duress. So ya anger well nne.

    3. Yes ohh Memphis I feel it's a sin because I deliberately missed it but for good reasons nii now, and the second one,girls continue to fal even after seeing red flags because we have fish brain like my friend will say. Lol.

  8. I want my mummy. Lol. I just want to see and hug my mom. Cant wait to get back and go visit her.

    1. Finally someone in my shoes. To think I was d only one missing my mum.
      I feel u on d traffic thing. Its so annoying.
      Also peeps who play music at work I wonder what is wrong with using earpiece

  9. No rants,No pet peeves, No complaint,No stress. I just woke up feeling so thankful to my God.
    Errrrr let it not look like I am fronting,lemme just type small.
    I just figured out that people actually thrive on hate comments, attacking the owner of the blog. but I tell you one thing, when we all ignore such comments and do not reply, they tend to fade away because they get bored when there is no drama.
    Most of these anonymous people, write those things for the fun of it . Why do we dwell on their comments like really? What will a blogger like Linda Ikeji, that gets bashed from all angles do? Some even extend the hate to her family members .
    She simply ignores. Because she knows that the Internet; especially the blogosphere is a faceless world with fake identity and all. #lemme go and brush my fingers.brb

    1. LOL. Bloggitup you're something else. Well Linda has no choice but to ignore, where she for wan start from na? But truth is even Linda hasn't always ignored. I've read LIB for several years and I still remember Linda replying most of the hate comments. However, that was the era before her comments ran into hundreds. Sometimes it's not easy o! Up until a year or two ago even SDK would give it back hotter than it was dished. It takes several years of experience and lots of restraint to just ignore.
      I personally wish I could study trolls (and faceless cyber bullies); know what makes them tick and why they do what they do. They're a sad lot but rather interesting too.

    2. And I personally wish I could ask those anons here why dey chased Ruthy away,karma is a bitch and it will surely visit them where and when they don't expect. Ruthy sweetie, TTB family misses you,plsss ignore these sadists and come back ohjhhj.

    3. Why do I have this funny feeling that Thelma is referring to you in this post. Yes Maybel, you seem to be a very nossy fellow. And you always have an opinion about every post.

    4. Not at all, I'm not referring to Mabel. On the contrary Mabel is not in anyway nosey, and we talk so I should know. But there are some nosey readers sha, the ones who read posts and sensing that's not the full story, call to get the complete scoop. LOL. Still not referring to any of them here...

    5. Anon that's a sweet compliment about me bitch. Thanks. Hehehhehheehehehehehe.

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.
