What's up, how you all keeping.

"Mo gbe oju mi si oke woni, ni bo ni iranlowo mi yio ti wa, iranlowo mi yio ti owo oluwa wa eni ti o da orun ati aiye" ("I lift my your eyes Up towards the Heaven, from whence comes My help, My help comes from the Lord who made the Heavens and Earth").

Alphaly speaking (permit the grammar to be so) , you must look up first to Heaven for help, HE will send help down for you to receive, He is that faithful. A mother may forget her suckling child But God is always mindful go you.

Don't look down before looking up, Look Up before looking down because the Help you really need is from above.

You have heard o

It is official, you bloggers are lovely and adorable. I could not help but smile as I saw the attempts some quite futile to match tbloggers to the description and the modesty of some obvious bloggers as they wondered if they were on the list :).

I have to say this 'the Dude that made me laugh when I first came to blogville was 'Baba Alaye intel'. Before Fineboy was there was BabaAlaaye, fineboy na im Son. Awon winch and haters anons chased him.

Maybe one day when I no get gist or I get writers block, I will post the other names against the list.

Here goes

1) 30+ likes counting and calculating - nope I am not an accountant, just like counting and mental multiplications. One of my childhood memories involves an attempt to count the number of beans in a Bag those 30-40kg type ones. I fell asleep just after two congo (bowl) or so. I have since realised that all I needed to do was concentrate on counting one bowl then work out how many bowls are in the bag and that should give me an estimate. Now I need to find me a bag of beans and some idle time (both are luxuries these days).

2) I am an expressionist i.e. my expression does a lot of talking (I know I am murdering English here, bear with me). So in as much as I try to avoid talking, folks can easily read me 'cos of the facials I pull.

3) I love my beverage, must have at least two cups a day.

4) I bring up my food after eating, especially meat and diary stuff.

5) If you need someone to help you cry, you can count on me, I can cry for Olympics.

6) I often interject my sentences or gist with french especially when I am having a serious or formal discussion, oui I do (exactly just like that). My boss once asked if I actually speak french (yes in my dreams).

I tag Ejatutu and Ms Kiki

I have just been hooking up with my old friends from like donkey years ago, courtesy of facebook and networking through some other friends. In short in the past two weeks I have had long gist over phone with ma peeps in Naija (6 of them o), chatted with another one in Singapore abi wetin call, another in Canada. Good news all around o, these folks are now Big Boyz doing well for themselves, I am so pleased.

Yippee I am counting down to my Birthday, eh karamba, God is good. It's a privilege to be called by his name.

Mommy said...

See her..'longa throat' does not want you to waste it. You must be from the planet next to mine. (lol)...and you tried counting a bag of beans...kai, children and the way their brains work. How was your weekend? I'm looking forward to your birhtday

@Honeywell, you are welcome o and no it is not a stupid question. Truth is I learnt some french in school and another class that I did but can't really speak. However I so want to speak it that the one or two I remember I will not let go off and I say it so perfectly (accent intonation and all) that you would think that I speak.

@Jaybabe, did you just say abih - hee hee hee lolling, you have been naijarised.

@Afrobabe, you alone you are in 3 places o. I will rake for you before I hug you sha. Bless your heart.

@Jaybabe, cool temper see comments below and above

@Nikkisab, very sharp babe you are, quickly picked that we are unique. 1 fab point for you. Swing by here on Monday.

@Aphro,ditto below and my comment

@Free flowing, don't mind that african woman she like money so. Yeah I know folks see me as some hard babe but I easily tear up when someone around me is hurting.

@Aijay, which kind friend you be, when I was expecting you to be chief parry organiser for me. Monday is the D day

@Jaycee, shey meeting all those old folks has been quite nostalgic for me o

@Feather, the confedration of wailers is what we should call the group.

@QOC, Oh my quite an age I need to come over yours mehn. Folks think I am fluent in French too - lol

@Zephi, Hmmn...what is the devil bit of it need to know before I get carried away o. How you doing?

@Aphrodite, will mail you but may not be very soon sha.

Ekoakete said...

I'm definitely with you on being an "expressionist". So many times I've had to speak to limit the damage of what my face said. Tsk.

So when's the buffday purry...?

darkelcee said...

Happy buffday

Check out my blog for your buffday message!

love you loads!

anonymous gal said...

happy bday. hope hang over is not disturbin u o. coz we need an update

Tolantino said...

I contemplated leaving an anonymous comment regarding regurgitation but heck I won't. I have always regurgitated food as far back as i can remember. Meat, Rice, e.t.c I never thought of sharing it with anyone as I thought it was very abnormal and I was ashamed. Reading through these comments, I find that at least 6 out of 42 people have commented that they could relate with you. This means 1 in 7 people actually regurgitate as well. I am totally stunned. Can you guys please share how you deal with the regurgitation thing. Any tips for controlling it? 30+, I am awfully sorry to have hijacked your post like this but you cannot even begin to imagine how stunned I am at this new revelation.
