The Bane Of Ignorance. (The Bruce Jenner Transgender Issue).

The level of ignorance some of you exhibit is just incredible! “My God doesn’t make mistakes”, ” he involved 'my God' in this”, is God your sole property or how does that relate to the issue on ground? Does it explain the reason why someone born male wants to be a female? If you want to use that as an argument or fact, how would you explain the millions of people born with hundreds of different genetic abnormalities/congenital diseases of all parts/cells of the human body? Are these people mistakes or made by the devil because they are not perfect or they are perfect because God wanted them to be born with diseases?
We live in an imperfect world, and there things that we don’t yet understand or that we may never understand properly. Instead of you to broaden your knowledge by reading about these things you read online, you just involve God into everything and make dumb statements.
We as a people never try to find out the reason for something either by researching or just plain r…

Where Have You Been?

A few weekends ago at my friend's tea party, like I told y'all it was just us ladies, and the celebrant, my very posh and proper *giggles* friend, insisted on classical music only. Naturally with no man dem and no ahh shoki it was only a matter of time before everyone started fiddling with their phones and looking around restlessly. So, we decided to play some games. I'd have you know that we ended up having a great deal of fun. Surprising, right? 
Well the only game we played (before we dived into some serious girl talk) was Two Truths and a Lie. We've played something similar on the blog once. And just like it was on the blog, it was great fun at the party. So this chica took her turn and she said; "I love my job. I have nineteen siblings. I've been to well over twenty countries. Which is the lie?"
Wow! We wracked and cracked our brains. NINETEEN SIBLINGS? Hmmm, sounds like a lie. OVER TWENTY COUNTRIES? Hmmmm not very likely. She LOVES her job? Yeah that …

How To Change a Man.

Good morning gorgeous people! And for those not in this time zone, Hello gorgeous people! I've got a wing girl called Marni. Occasionally she sends me emails and some times I just yawn my way through, not because they're no good, but because the dating scene over here is so different from what's applicable in the USA. So most times I read simply for amusement or to have a good eye-rolling session. But on a few occasions she sends me things that I can actually relate to. I thought someone might benefit from it.

Hello Thelma,
I love my husband...

BUT, there are certainly a few things that I would like to change about him. Ha.

And I'm sure you've had the same thoughts about the man in your life or about men you've dated in the past.
So I'm going to tell you my trick for getting a man to change!!!

To be honest, it's not so much a trick but rather a course of action that works.

This morning I got an email from a woman that I'll refer to as A.
I won't share t…

So What If My Boyfriend Got Married Last Week?

Hihellohowareyou?
But seriously, so what if my boyfriend got married last week? Am I supposed to die? Roll on the ground and cover my body in dust and sand? Write it on my forehead and rant on Twitter? 
Well yes he did. And everybody seems to think I'm terribly "strong". Everyone says "Wow Nwando are you sure you're ok? Are you sure you're fine?". Mummy called and waited for the tears and when I changed the topic and started talking about food she wasn't sure how to proceed, her mind had already been prepared to deliver the 'Your own will come' speech. She struggled hard to find the reset button and it seemed to elude her so I ambled along, carried on the conversation for the both of us till she could find her tongue. 
Why is it strange that I refuse to talk about it? Talk ill about him? Not appear interested at the mention of his name? Is it because you knew that I'd admitted to myself that I had fallen in love with him and just the day be…

Buhari Bans AIT From Covering Activities?

Do you share the sentiments of Gilbert Oladeinbo (Esq.)? Here's what he had to say;

He Told Me He Will Never Marry Someone As Ugly As Me.

I met my 'husband' while working as a sales girl in Idumota. He always frequented our shop because of me and each time he came he would always tell me how much he loves me and wants to marry me. I liked him too and we started dating. I got pregnant for him and moved in with him and he promised to marry me and pay my bride price. He kept postponing the marriage and each time I ask him, he would say there is no money for that now and once money comes we would get married. We kept living together peacefully till he suddenly changed, abuses me any opportunity he gets. he told me he will never marry someone as ugly as me. He got married to another woman and brought her home and they made life unbearable for me and my kids, I kept enduring hoping things would get better but he just threw us out from his house. We've been sleeping outside since then. The only thing I was able to pack was the clothes I spread on the grass over there and the ones inside the white nylon. Sometimes I…

This Is a Joke Right? Fat-Shaming Women Who Gave Birth Through C-Section.

I'm not sure where Linda Ikeji found this picture but it's simply got to be a joke, one of those things some loony posts on the Internet to stir up arguments and instigate fights.
But I'll just ask, do you mothers who gave birth the natural way feel that mothers who had their baby/babies through C-section took the easy way out? Do you resent them for this? Do you feel you had it tough and they didn't?
I'm itching to know. 
But did the ignoramus who wrote this know that most people don't have C-sections by choice? Especially in this age where everyone is #teamfitfam and everybody wants to post smoking hot post-baby bods one month after leaving the labour room? I attended a get together some days ago and everyone one beside just two of us are mothers, but guess what, they were all wayyyy hotter than me! You wouldn't even know the ladies were married, let alone that they had babies under the age of 1. On the other hand a dear friend of mine had her baby through C…

Please, What Should She Do?

I got a call from a blog reader this morning which I almost didn't take, because the caller ID showed Private number. But on second thought I decided to pick my phone, I'm glad I did. Here's a summary of what she told me. 
She's in her late 20s, a graduate and has completed her NYSC but still no job. In October 2014 her friend needed to travel for a six-month course. Her friend had a job as a personal assistant to an executive director in one of the top companies. The pay is really good and her friend wanted to go for the program but, still wanted the job when she returned, especially if nothing better came up. So, this friend decided to suggest to her boss to allow the blog reader stand in for her for the duration. Surprisingly the boss agreed. It was a win-win, the blog reader would collect the salary for the duration she filled in for her friend and continue her job search so that when she (the friend) returned she would have a job of her own to move on to. Well now …

#Grey's Anatomy Killed Love and Now You're In Mourning.

I'm not sure which post it was but I saw comments from a number of you crying about Greys. I wasn't sure what the fuss was about, I stopped watching Greys in Season 6 or 7. It's a pretty amazing show but I stopped because I found it a bit too depressing, I found myself crying at least twice in one episode, I decided I'd had enough. Don't get me wrong, it's not Greys, it's me. I'm just a bit too emotional and sensitive especially when visuals are involved. I didn't know who to ask but when I saw Myne Whitman's post titled How #GreysAnatomy Killed Love & Got Me Crying, I understood better. Here's what she wrote on her blog romancemeetslife

When bad things happen, they often blindside you. That was what Meredith Grey said the episode before last as she complained that she'd not heard from her husband Derek Shephard after he left to go wrap things up in DC and move back to Seattle for good. Since his jaunt to the capital, I've been s…

It's Poll Time. Tonto Dike Is Crayyyy!!!

https://instagram.com/p/13bJ-8OBH5/ https://instagram.com/p/13fVrfuBPV/

I'm sure we've all heard about this fracas. It's both entertaining and quite disturbing. Opinions are split. On the one hand some say Pearl (the personal shopper) has poor customers relations. They say she should not have gone public with this, especially just one month after the transaction. They say in the long run in would be detrimental to her business; people do not want to do business with an impatient loud mouth. Plus she even sold fake clothes!
On the other, people are enraged at Tonto's actions. When she knew she didn't want the clothes why didn't she have them returned? And why did she issue a dud cheque? And why didn't she respond to Pearl's incessant calls and messages? And what's with her bringing Omotola into the mix? 
And just when we thought things were dying down, Tonto goes on burns the bags! I don't even know what to make of that. Do you?
This whole thing makes…
