You know that feeling when you have so much to say but you can't really say anything?

Like, nothing. I've typed about six times now but then I delete and type and delete. Because there's just so much that it becomes nearly impossible to articulate and coordinate. 

I'm such a huge optimist. I've never felt so alone in my entire life. Never, actually. But optimism keeps me going. Optimism or delusion, these days I tend to question which it is. 

Tomorrow the hustle continues. The grind. The pursuit. It's so freaking lonely running this race. There's so much on my plate, such a huge mandate and damn, I've never been so alone. It's tiring. 

It's like, can someone please love me enough, care about me enough to help me take some of the load off? 

I guess not. 

Everyone has got their own race to run. 

It's 8.30pm.

I'm going to bed. 

Tomorrow I continue. 

Someday I'll testify. 

But first, goodnight. 


Oh btw please no words of encouragement needed, thanks but no thanks. I have enough hope and positivity to last the next 5 years. LOL. If you want to leave a comment however, let's talk about food. Seriously. Today I cooked for the first time in months. Sasha boné asked me if I have a new boyfriend. My brother asked me whom I'm cooking for and why. My mum asked me whom I'm cooking for and why and what I'm expecting in return. My sister said "Ope o!". My nephew said "Aunty Nwando why are you cooking?". I'm shaking my head vigorously at everyone 😒. In any case, I made garden egg sauce with tilapia and dry fish, egusi soup and Jollof rice. I had garden egg sauce and boiled plantain for dinner. 

What did you have for dinner? The more details the better. 




  1. Lol. I had dodo and egg for dinner. I'm hearing of garden egg sauce for the first time

  2. Is Garden egg sauce the one they sell in small plastics to be eaten with something; can't remember the thing right now!
    Had jollof rice for dinner!!! It was a good meal. When am ranting to a friend, am like don't quote scriptures, cos I know him already🙊 but he still does! So am gonna do same "God makes everything beautiful in his own time"! 😘

    1. Lol. No the one you're taking about is groundnut sauce used to eat garden eggs. That's ground groundnuts kinda like peanut butter, but with pepper. Garden egg sauce is made with garden eggs, tomato, pepper Palm oil etc etc.

    2. Short bread and Snapp. I saw garden egg sauce and just thought of Abacha. J

  3. I was supposed to come over for dinner. That was the plan uknw...

  4. I love the new look of the blog

  5. I love the new layout of the blog... i just drank 'beta malt' for dinner as i wasnt hungry

  6. This garden egg sauce, please can u post the recipe, i love garden eggs and will like to try it. I actually thought u meant egg plant till i saw pictures

  7. Good morning.

    Where can I get the wild caught tilapia, not farm raised, aside going to Epe?

  8. I had cereals.

    Errrm....Thelma, I think those stew need to be tasted to prove that they are edible and good for your consumption. Kindly, forward me the location of the soup and I can conduct the test for you free of charge and out of the kindness of my stomach, sorry heart. Chrisyinks

    1. err, seeing that you are unavoidably distant I can check the meals out in your stead and give you feedback. Forward the location to me plix Thelma.

  9. I had nothing for dinner. I had a bad headache that prevented me from cooking and i was too broke to buy food. Oh well.. Today is a new day. Between, I once made garden egg "egg" sauce. It was quite nice.

  10. Oh, nice to try it with tomato. I'm sure with chicken it wud be nice as well. #tastebuds

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.
